  1. First announced last September, Luigi's Mansion 3 is the upcoming new game in the Luigi's Mansion series for the Nintendo Switch, set to release sometime in late 2019. As with the 3DS sequel, Luigi’s Mansion 3 is being developed by Vancouver-based Next Level Games with supervision from Nintendo producers in Japan. Luigi explores a hotel this time, not a mansion. He gets there one day via a bus that’s driven by Toad and also seems to carry Mario, Peach and two other toads. Somehow those other characters go missing, the hotel’s elevator breaks, the place gets all spooky and Luigi has to explore each floor, vacuuming up ghosts while searching for the elevator’s missing buttons so he can go to other floors. Luigi’s Mansion 2’s mission structure, which required players to start the same level multiple times to pursue various objectives, has been replaced with a more traditional free-flowing approach to exploration. The game controls very similarly to Luigi’s Mansion 2. You see the game world from a so-called dollhouse perspective and walk Luigi through it, having him point his flashlight or vacuum cleaner at objects to interact with them. The vacuum cleaner, also known as the Poltergust G-00 (because it houses a goo-compartment in this game, gettit?), this time can suck or blow, which you’re using not just to vacuum ghosts, but to pull at curtains to reveal secrets or make propellers spin to raise or lower elevators, etc. As in Luigi’s Mansion 2, you also have a dark light, which you can shine on invisible objects to make them appear. New moves for this game include a burst, which entails Luigi pointing his vacuum at the floor and blasting it briefly so he hops straight up and things near him are blown away. You can also now shoot a plunger from the Poltergust, have it stick to something and then use the vacuum setting to tug at the plunger. You catch ghosts similarly to how you did in the earlier Luigi’s Mansion games, but with a twist. You hit them with a strobe burst of your flashlight, then vacuum them, pulling against the direction they are moving in. As you do this, a meter starts filling. Once it is full, you can press the A button to activate a new move called 'slam'. This -very satisfying- action lets you smack the tethered ghost onto the floor repeatedly, even letting you change the direction of the slam as you do it. In short order, a decent player will be slamming a ghost into other ghosts, depleting all the ghosts’ health in the process. It’s clear that Luigi’s Mansion 3 seems once more to be stuffed with hidden treasure. Secret doors, bonus treasure rooms and more. The developers are expanding on an idea introduced in last year’s 3DS remake of the original Luigi’s Mansion by allow players to generate a green, gooey version of Luigi called 'Gooigi'. With the press of the right thumbstick, players can switch to controlling Gooigi, who can walk through spikes and deploy the same vacuuming abilities as Luigi.A second player can control Gooigi as well, but he can’t be a consistent companion, because when you leave a room, he simply dissolves. Teaser trailer: E3 2019 trailer: Released later this year.
  2. 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:
  3. Probably the only interesting thing from Nintendo's 2018 E3 presentation: EDIT: Sorry, the new batch of Splatoon 2 amiibo looks pretty cool too... Daemon X Machina was announced for Nintendo Switch during this year's E3 and features mecha design by Shoji Kawamori (Macross). The title is a mecha game with a clear Armored Core vibe, featuring design by Shoji Kawamori who -besides his work for the Macross series- also worked on the Armored Core series. We also get Armored Core producer Kenichiro Tsukuda, No More Heroes character designer Yusuke Kozaki, Soul Calibur music composer Junichi Nakatsuru, alongside Ryo Hamamoto known for his work on the Tekken series. At the helm are Monster Hunter Stories director Ken Awata and chief designer Ken Karube. Debut trailer: Gamescom 2018 trailer: E3 2019 trailer: The game is being developed by Marvelous' First Studio using the Unreal Engine 4, and should be coming to the Nintendo Switch in September 2019.
  4. The audio design for this is shaping up to be excellent. I think I'm looking forward to the music more than the actual game... Some golden-oldies.. Roll on Friday!
  5. There's a new game from Platinum Games and action games director Hideki Kamiya the guy who did Anarchy Reigns and NieR: Automata. Due on Switch later this summer: Astral Chain, an action game starring two characters in a futuristic world should make action games fans's heart beat from excitement. Making his directorial debut and known for his work as the game designer on NieR:Automata, Takahisa Taura is responsible for the concept and planning of Astral Chain. Hideki Kamiya, creator of the Bayonetta series, is in charge of supervision. The character design is by manga artist Masakazu Katsura, creator of ZETMAN and Video Girl Ai. Astral Chain , a brand new action game from PlatinumGames, is coming exclusively to Nintendo Switch! As part of a police special task force, it’s up to you to fight against mysterious, alien-like creatures who have invaded the world. In the Ark, a multi-cultural city in the near future, disaster strikes when gates to another dimension suddenly appear! Dangerous creatures begin to emerge, attacking the people and polluting the land, and normal police forces are unable to compete with them. To stand up against these threats, a brand new, special police unit known as Neuron is formed. Choose between two playable characters – one male, one female – on your adventure. The character you don’t choose also appears as your younger twin, and a fellow member of Neuron. In order to resist the creatures, humanity developed a special weapon: the Legion. The Legion acts as your partner, and helps with your investigations. However, it’s in battle where the Legion shows its real ability... Work together with the Legion and use all sorts of combat styles to fight your enemies. You could both attack the same enemy simultaneously, target different opponents, or send your Legion on the offensive while you support it with items. Use this synergetic action system to battle and explore together!

  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Cytus Alpha Release date - 16th July Platform - Switch Metacritic score - 82 As some of you know, I've been quite vocal about my love of Voez, a rhythm action game on the Switch. Deemo, it's sequel is equally as good, but I haven't spent nearly as much time with that. Now Rayark are releasing their follow up - Cytus Alpha is 200 songs - a mix of J-Pop, J-Rock and electronica - where you tap circles in time to the rhythm. Which makes it sound a little like a certain old forum favourite - Ouendan - just with less dancing cheerleaders. It's also the first Rayark Switch release to get a physical version. A collectors edition with a CD soundtrack is out tomorrow. Base.com are selling it for £34.85 https://www.base.com/buy/product/cytus-alpha-collectors-edition-nintendo-switch/dgc-cytaphns.htm Anyway, my physical version has been dispatched so if anybody other than me is interested in impressions, I'll be happy to post them when it arrives.
  9. The above trailer is pretty... Surprised there hasn't been any interest in this title on here, given the popularity of the Zero Escape series. Written and directed by Kotaro Uchikoshi, it's basically the Jennifer Lopez film 'The Cell', in game form. You play a detective who solves crimes by entering the dreams of others. And like that film, it's pretty grisly. Outside of the trailer, I've been pretty much on blackout for this. It looks right up my street and I'll be day one on its release on July 26th.
  10. 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.

  12. Most important bit currently: Switch version out on August 7, 2018! Should leave you with enough time to complete Hollow Knight.
  13. 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:
  14. Turns out that wishing for a new Mario RPG is less succesfull when you try using the monkey's paw. EDIT: Right then, editing this because it looks a whole lot better then anticipated. Grant Kirkhope is composing for the game.

  16. Crypt of the Necrodancer, only Zelda. No, I mean literally that.
  17. A new Zelda game is coming to Switch. Twenty six (!!) years after its original release on Game Boy, The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening will be reborn as a new experience on Nintendo Switch. Buffeted by a storm, Link washes ashore on the mysterious Koholint Island. In order to return home, Link must overcome challenging dungeons and battle against fearsome monsters. So, unlike most other games in the series, it isn't set in Hyrule, but rather the mystical Koholint Island. After Link washes ashore the island, he can only escape by retrieving eight magical instruments and waking the isle's mystical guardian, the Wind Fish. This new version of the classic adventure includes many unique elements that appeared in the original Game Boy release, such as 2D platformer-style rooms and appearances from characters outside of The Legend of Zelda series. Screenshots: Debut trailer: E3 2019 trailer: Out this September.
  18. Announced at TGA's. Coming alongside will be ports of the first two games. Those will hit Feb 2018. Anybody excited?

    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.
  20. 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
  21. No word of a lie: this is my game of E3 so far. Looks like a cross between Deadpool and John Wick. It looks incredible. It's out on Switch and PC next year. I mean, look at this: Amazing.
  22. Out today! I’m getting it on Switch. I may have ordered 3 ships off amazon last night as well. Reviews have been decent for the most part.
