  2. I'm sure when developers were trying to get on the battle royale bandwagon, when someone suggested Tetris would be a good fit for the genre, they were probably laughed out of the room. But do you know what? That person was right. A surprise shadow drop after the Direct last night, Tetris 99 is you vs 98 other players. Are you good enough to be the last mirrored L-shape standing? I only played a couple of games last night, but I can see it being a long term fixture on my Switch. In my first game, I placed 32/99. In my second 31/99. Need to do better. One caveat: you need Nintendo's Online service to play it. But if you have that, definitely give it a go. It's my kind of Battle Royale. Edit: An invaluable guide:

    New Star Manager

    New Star Games latest football manager sim is out on Switch and Steam, and has no In App Purchases! (The Android and iOS versions do have IAP) Some impressions from the Nintendo eShop Thread below: @Gotters @Mitchell
  4. A Definitive Edition for Switch! Releasing Winter 2019 Details Orchestral soundtrack English and Japanese voices 16-bit version included (which looks like the 3DS version) Additional story content
  5. The switch thread is a bit of a mega-thread so seeing if we can carve the eShop part of it into its own chat - not going to create a new thread every week but hopefully this will move some of the traffic out the mega-thread. Can I buy from a browser from the eShop ? You need to access the eShop at least once from your Switch before you can buy online. Once you've done that though, yes you can buy online and it'll download automatically. http://www.nintendo.co.uk/Nintendo-Switch/Games/Games-1178441.html eShop Price Comparison www.eshop-prices.com/?currency=GBP How To Access Foreign eShops Specifically looking to set up a Japanese account? Eurogamer have a handy guide here, though the same method applies for all regions. I’m based in Europe… can I log onto overseas eShops? 1) Use a browser to go to accounts.nintendo.com 2) Create a new account 3) Set your region to the one you want, e.g. Japan. NOTE: This can be changed at any time 4) On the Switch, go to SYSTEM SETTINGS > USER > ADD NEW USER. 5) Set icon and nickname (anything memorable will do, but you might want to add ‘JPN’ to the end of the nickname for easy reference) 6) Link this to the account you created in step 2 You can either repeat this step for different territories OR simply use your second account as a floating region, remembering to change the region at accounts.nintendo.com and re-entering your password to agree to the country's specific EULA. NOTE: Any eShop funds you have tied to a specific store (e.g. Japan) will be erased if you switch the account region. ____________ How do I log on to an overseas eshop? Simple: click/press on the eShop icon, then choose the account you want to log in with. Do I have to swap accounts to play overseas games? NO (yippee!). All games show against all accounts Will Japanese/overseas language games show in my local language when I use my local account? Not so far. Game languages support is always on the 'disk' Can I use my credit card to buy from all European countries? Yes. This includes Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Russia, so be sure to check their prices. Can I use my credit card to buy from the US and Japan (and other international stores) ? Unfortunately, no (unless you happen to have a card from that territory). You will have to buy eShop cards from places such eBay, Japan Code Supply or Play-Asia, etc. or use an alternative method (Sorry, no PayPal either). Stocking up with eShop funds has it's disadvantages, however as they can not only be expensive, but should you change your region, any remaining credit will be erased. This goes for changing your main account, too, so please be careful to only top up with the correct amount or as close to that as possible.

    SEGA AGES: OutRun

    I bought this in the sale recently and I cannot stop playing it. I just wanted to start a thread to share the love and maybe some tips. I've played the game several times before without really 'getting' it, despite my love for Outrun 2. I have always loved the original music tracks though (Passing Breeze > Splash Wave > Magical Sound Shower) and so I was pleased to find that the extra tracks featured here are of a similar style and quality. Recently I have been going with the Driver's Megamix Vol.1 cassette tape, which is a slightly pumped up remix of the three original tracks. I also really like the main menu music - anybody know what it is? Is it on other SEGA AGES releases? I started out with the difficulty on its lowest setting and the timer at max. This allowed me to actually get to the end of the course most times. As I unlocked them, I also used the tune-up items for improved grip, higher top speed, faster crash recovery and better off road speed. But now I've got the hang of it and am getting more familiar with the different areas, I've knocked the difficulty back up to default and stopped using the upgrades so that I can post my scores on the rankings. This also means you get the classic red car! My current goal is to try and finish the starting area in under one minute. I'm slowly shaving off the milliseconds with my current best being 1:00.34. Also trying to perfect the start - can you avoid the wheelspin (is it even detrimental?). And then working out the perfect point at which to shift from Low to High gear (wheelspin again) and which corners require you to brake, or to switch back down to Low gear briefly. The in-game menu's are a bit vague, but there's some good info in the online manual (internet connection required). Game Version: Old/New - Old is the original Japanese release. New is the International release with a few updates and the areas/routes in a slightly different layout. Details can be found on Sega Retro. Game Mode: Special/Arcade - Special mode is the default mode which runs at 60 frames per second and includes the tune-up items and extra music tracks. Arcade mode is unlocked after clearing all 5 endings. It is a more faithful conversion, running at 30 frames per second and with no extras. Ranking: Each ending (A,B,C,D,E) has its own ranking for both Old and New variants (and also Special or Arcade mode too, I think). The difficulty must be at its default value but you can extend the timer. You cannot use the tune-up items or load a previous save state.

    Celeste

    Looks utterly amazing: It's got a little bits of Super Meat Boy, VVVVV, N++, Escape Goat, and of course Towerfall movement set and midair dash. Single player platformer adventures are still probably my favourite genre, and from the amount I played the single player challenges in Towerfall I trust that this will be another title to look out for. Release later this year.
  8. Wow. They're actually making a sequel. The first one is incredible but lacked multi-player, which this sequel has. It's Minecraft X Dragon Quest, basically, with a mission based structure, loads of quests, single or party combat and lots of buildings, weapons, food and other items to craft and use. It's such a good fit for Switch portability too. Now features gliding: (Check out the gliding gif! https://mobile.twitter.com/Wario64/status/894030969086164992/photo/1) And underwater exploration:

    Splatoon 2

    OCTO EXPANSION KLAXON; RELEASES 14/06/2018 NINTENDO CONFIRM FREE UPDATES UNTIL THE END OF THE YEAR NEW AMIIBOS COMING IN 2018 http://www.nintendo.com/games/detail/splatoon-2-switch https://splatoonus.tumblr.com/ [official Tumblr, full of little tidbits of info] Trailers! Art! Splatoon-branded gear! Hooray an actual sequel Splatoon 2 - sequel to the finest squid-based multiplayer shooter in recent memory - releases worldwide on July 27, 2017 for Nintendo Switch. Featuring a singleplayer campaign focusing on the disappearance of Callie (one of the Squid Sisters who featured prominently in the first game) along with... some kind of multiplayer? I've not seen anything that confirms what modes will be present, though going off the recent testfire you can be sure that Turf War will be there. What are you talking about Splatoon is a multiplayer shooter on Wii U, released in 2015. Its main gimmick is that the game's arsenal of weapons all fire ink rather than bullets; while on ink of your team's colour you can turn into a squid and move faster and climb up walls. Whilst submerged in ink you also recharge your ink supply. Ink of the opposing team's colour is dangerous; running through it will slow you down and getting hit by it generally doesn't end well. Turf War is a game mode that lasts three minutes, in which the team who has inked the most turf at the end wins. What kind of weapons are there Buckets! Rollers! Brushes! Sniper rifles. Ones that fire ink.

  13. The basics of The Snack World TreJarers are to find rare items slumbering deep inside dungeons. The main game cycle is going back and forth between the base and dungeons to proceed through the game. You prepare equipment and items at the base before going to a dungeon. Then at the dungeon, you’ll try to find rare items slumbering deep within. Featured in The Snack World are random dungeons where the layout changes each time the player enters. The type of dungeons vary, including a rocky area, forest, and temple. Scary bosses lie deep inside the dungeons such as the Kraken. Other charming monsters are introduced, which are Buttery, Scorpion, Yeti, Mermaid, Penguin Knight, Mimic, Merman and Clone. Selecting Jara, which is the term for weapon here, is very important. Different Jaras should be prepared to be ready for a variety of monsters which have different affinities against Jaras. Jaras and Snacks can be scanned which will give benefits. Jaras are very important items in The Snack World. They are normally miniaturized while being carried, but can be increased in size during attacks. Snacks are crystal plates that contain sealed monsters and characters. A limited Jara: Crystal Sword Alpha will be available in limited amounts of early game copies. Up to six Jara items can be carried at once. The Jaras can also be freely assembled. Snacks allows summoning of monsters and characters, so you should collect them to go on an adventure with yout favorite characters. Benefits of scanning a Jara toy include activating unique skills that will aid in quests, obtaining items that strengthen weapons, and unlocking special quests. Meanwhile, by scanning Snacks, you can obtain Chap’s bandanna and unlock quests related to Piggy. Each piece of the Jara equipment is grouped under brand names. The currently known ones are: Fairy Electronics, Clanarine, Britannia Enchant and Peffany. Players can enjoy their own way of collecting branded items, whether focusing on their favorite brands or combining from various brands. Announcement trailer: Nintendo Direct (Japanese) debut trailer: >> Official Japanese website. The Snack World is Level-5's latest multimedia franchise, following the likes of Inazuma Eleven, Little Battlers eXperience and Yo-kai Watch. The franchise is a "hyper casual fantasy" that is set in the Snack World, a traditional fantasy world combined with convenience stores, smartphones, and other elements of the modern world. It revolves around the adventures of Chup, a wandering hero, who is determined to get revenge against Large-Scale Leisure Facilities after it destroyed his village in response to the villagers refusing to allow eviction of the village by the former. Madly in love with King Majesty[a]'s daughter, Princess Melora, he fulfills her selfish wishes by going on quests, accompanied by an inelegant witch, Mayone; a muscular warrior, Pepperon; a goblin-like creature, Gob-san; and a female pig-nosed dragon, Francene Level-5 first announced The Snack World TreJarers back in 2015. A Japanese release is set for this Summer. A Western release has also been confirmed
  14. Hello! Hollow Knight is a platformer on PC (now), Mac (soon) and Nintendo Switch (sometime this year) and it's utterly beautiful & I'm completely in love with it. Release Trailer: It's a mixture between a metroidvania and a Souls-like; you're exploring a non-linear map which is gated by abilities that your character picks up along the way, while also unlocking shortcuts and collecting & spending "Geos" (souls) which you drop when you die and have to corpse run to get them back or lose them forever. The combat seems tailored towards slow, methodical timed attacks & dodging thus far (I'm 2 hours in, so this might change). I'm finding it difficult but fair, although I'm generally rubbish at video games. Here's a video of me ineptly tackling a mini-boss which I think is a good demonstration of how it mixes the two genres (spoilers for about 3 hours into the game): Up the top-left of the screen are my Geos (the numbered icon) and my Spirit, which you can use to either heal (hold B) or fire a projectile (tap B). You gain Spirit by damaging enemies and Geos by killing them. It's £10.99 on Steam at the moment which is an absolute steal: http://store.steampowered.com/app/367520/ The soundtrack is also very very nice, and you can buy it on Steam or stream it on Spotify. The game was due to come out on the Wii U but it's been moved to the Switch instead and comes out later this year, the release date hasn't been confirmed yet. I'm really enjoying it, there's a great sense of exploration and the combat feels brilliant when you get your timing right. The art-style is beautiful and there's also loads of scenery to smash, which I approve of. You should play this game!

    Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate

    New thread, to avoid mega-threads... A baffled Dinovaldo Glavenus, yesterday. Capcom recently announced Monster Hunter X (that's "cross"), an upcoming 3DS title that uses the Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate engine and has flashy moves similar to the Frontier games. Since then, they’ve shared additional information on the game. The plans for Monster Hunter X began sometime around the production of Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. Capcom wanted to bring out more of a “festive” feeling that’s not in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, so they decided to bring back villages from past titles, and add four main monsters, instead of the usual one-per-title. Monster Hunter X is being developed with the concept of having your very own hunt that comes from the two features of “Hunting Maneuvers X Hunting Style”. Hunters will have access to new special moves and actions that look pretty flashy. Capcom say that these features will be the main attraction of Monster Hunter X. “Hunting Maneuvers” (or Arts) are special moves that range from being able to perform a powerful attack to a monster, to providing yourself with enhancements or buffs, and healing other nearby Hunters. “Hunting Style” is another feature that Monster Hunter X is adding to the game, that lets you turn moments of danger into stylish actions. This feature plays a big part in letting players hunt with their very own style. Capcom have prepared numerous "Hunting Arts" for each weapon, but there are also some “basic Hunting Arts” that can be used with any weapon, and you’ll get to choose from them all. This time around, the main village of Monster Hunter is called Verna Village. And the game will also feature various villages from past Monster Hunter titles, including Yukumo Village from Monster Hunter Portable 3rd (sweet!). While most Monster Hunter games have one flagship monster on the covers, it looks like Monster Hunter X will have four, as the ones shown in the above image are marked as the “four major main monsters”. The four main monsters won’t simply appear over time as you advance through the game with one being stronger than the other, but they’re actually all along the same rank. They’re called the “Elite Four” among the developers. They are Gammoth ( a fanged beast), the rather cool Glavenus (a brute wyvern), Astalos (a flying wyvern), and a still unnamed leviathan-type.

    Puyo Puyo Champions - May 7th

    Looking forward to this as a distraction to Tetris 99. http://puyo.sega.com/champions/
  17. Most important bit currently: Switch version out on August 7, 2018! Should leave you with enough time to complete Hollow Knight.
  18. NOTE: Please see the below thread for dedicated discussion of Persona 5 Scramble; hopefully my thread can be the home of vanilla and Royal chat! UPDATED OP: It looks like a new Persona 5 game is coming to Playstation following the announcement of Persona 5: The Royal - this was revealed in March 2019, following a previous tease that some P5 information would be revealed in that month, as well as news of some kind of Persona presence/announcement at Sega Fes 2019. The debut teaser below showed a new girl expressing dislike (or distrust?) of the Phantom Thieves, but little else. In late April a more substantial trailer was revealed (the second video below), showing off new locations, characters, events and more. This backs up the previous predictions of it being a "deluxe" version of P5, similar to P3: FES or P4 Golden. http://www.atlus.com/persona5/ If you're wondering what a Persona is, I've provided a little primer below:
  19. Systems: Pretty much everything Price: £15.99 Genre: Turn Based Strategy Remember Advance Wars? Remember your childlike C.O pitting your army against opposing enemies to sunny backdrops and jaunty music? Remember how it was (and still is, in my opinion) the best turn based strategy game around? Now remember how we haven't had a new game in the series in over 10 years? Nintendo, why do you hurt me so? Now enter Wargroove. Not so much a homage to Advance Wars, but an almost blatant rip off. This isn't a bad thing, though. If Nintendo won't work with the IP, at least someone is willing to take the mantle and run with it. Obviously, the biggest difference is the Medieval setting. So no tanks, then. Instead you have Ballistas. And Giants. And don't expect any aircraft. There be dragons here, instead. Plus, it expands massively on what Advance Wars started. 4 Player Multiplayer? Check. Online? Check. Create your own maps and share them online? Check. Essentially it looks like Advance Wars +++. Personally I would have been happy with Advance Wars +, but given the time spent on it (it was meant to be out over a year ago initially) and the obvious love the game has for predecessor, it seems like it might be something quite special. So when's it out? Today, hopefully! A shadow drop at the the end of the Nintendo Indie Direct is what we'd like. If not, it's definitely out soon, though. The developers have been all over Twitter, promising more information and a release VERY soon. I fully expect it it's not today, we will definitely have a date after the Direct. Just look at it! How could you not be excited?
  20. (credit to @geldra for the "x meets y" in the thread title.) Now that Sekiro's out, this is the next most exciting release of 2019 for me*. I think it was first teased way back in 2015, but now it looks like it's closing in on a release date. From the Steam page: Put simply, everything seen in the trailers looks amazing. Atmospheric pixel-art, lightning-fast attacks, slick movement, neo-noir stylings, moody music... The only concern surrounding the game (for me, at least) is that in the past the release date has been all over the place - so I don't know if I'm making this thread prematurely! - but considering that it's had playable builds and the April 18th date was tweeted out on March 20th, I'd like to hope that there isn't too much left to do. *okay, Indivisible too, but that's not on the way for a while Official website: https://www.katanazero.com/ Steam: https://store.steampowered.com/app/460950/Katana_ZERO/ Switch: https://www.nintendo.com/games/detail/katana-zero-switch

    Kirby Star Allies

    The first Kirby game for the Nintendo Switch has finally been named: Kirby Star Allies is a platform game played from a side-down perspective. Players control the series' titular protagonist Kirby can be accompanied by up to three companions. Kirby can throw hearts at enemies to turn them into his allies.

The game is scheduled to be released for the Nintendo Switch game console on 16 March 2018 Debut trailer: Launch trailer: Accolades trailer: Kirby Star Allies is set for a Spring 2018 release on the Nintendo Switch.

    BoxBoy! series - Switch demo out now!

    This one got a bit lost amidst all the Nintendo Direct news from last week... A black and white puzzle platformer, with a simple but bold presentation and with a very strong core mechanic: you create boxes in different directions from your, well... box-shaped-hero (Hakoboi actually means litt. ''Box Boy''), to interact with the world and solve puzzles. And you jump. And that's it. It looks so simple at first, and it's the classic game that's difficult to explain by words as is easy to grasps while watching the trailer or, better, playing it. By the end of the video this core mechanic gets applied in some astounding ways, opening up an inordinate amount of possibilities, driven by clever game and level design. As per Hal's trademark development skills. A Euro release is a big unknown at the moment.
