    Nintendo eShop

    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 https://eshop-prices.com/games 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.

  3. 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!

  7. 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.
  8. By Sega Bayonetta 1 £24.99 | Bayonetta 2 £39.99 Release Date: February 16th, 2018 ABOUT Figured I might as well make a new thread (blatantly stealing that title in the process) for those of us who've never played the sequel on Wii U. Personally I couldn't be more excited now that I finally get to play the follow-up to one of my all time favourite games! The wait has certainly been long but also more than worth it considering these appear to be the best console versions out there and that the third title is rumoured to release in 2018 as well. Now all I need is a DMC and Bayo cross-over game and I'm sorted.

    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 can be played alone with the game's AI controlling companions or co-operatively with other players controlling companions. When Kirby has companions, new special attacks become available which allow Kirby to combine his abilities with those of his allies', a feature not seen since Kirby: Squeak Squad. Also, when Kirby has three allies, they can perform special "Friend Abilities" like "Friends Train" and "Friend Star." Kirby Star Allies is being developed by HAL Laboratory and published by Nintendo. The game was initially teased under the tentative title Kirby during the Electronic Entertainment Expo 2017. In September 2017, the game's official title was announced during a Nintendo Direct presentation. 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.
  11. Did anyone else start playing this on the Switch the other day (Or indeed has played it on other platforms). I'm really enjoying myself. Combat is fast and fun. The plot can be a little talky and slow but I like the castaways idea and building up the base slowly as you move through the plot is satisfying. Currently I'm level 30.
  12. Most important bit currently: Switch version out on August 7, 2018! Should leave you with enough time to complete Hollow Knight.

    West of Loathing

    This released last year on PC and last week on the Switch. Don't let the art style put you off, this is a fantastic comedy RPG-lite. You play a young lad who sets off from home to find fame and fortune in the wild west. Along the way, he fights not just gangs and snakes, but demon cows, skeletons and goblins. And it's funny. As in, genuinely funny. The humour reminds me of a cross between Monty Python and Terry Pratchett. There's lots of text, but you never once want to skip it because the dialogue is that good. My one issue is the combat isn't great. It reminds me a bit of the combat in Paper Mario, but it's on the easy side. In fact, I've only died once in about 4 hours of play. But it's not a reason to be put off - it's an aside to the storytelling. Honestly, it's far better than it has any right to be. It's probably my favourite Switch game so far this year.

    Yoku's Island Express

    This game came out recently across all platforms and is incredible. It mixes genres really well and is a: Metroidvania, Platforming game with pinball mechanics. The art style is lovely and the music is joyful. Despite being fairly short, it has fantastic pacing. Check out videos below then go ahead and buy it. It is already one of the games of the year in my opinion. Buy it Xbox Playstation PC Switch

    Taiko Drum Master: Drum 'N' Fun!

    Seems like the seminal rhythm based action game that debuted on the PS2 way back in 2004 is getting a Switch release as well. In Japan at least. But as the Switch is region-free, we finally get the opportunity to join in the drum beating madness once again! Gameplay sees symbols moving horizontally along a timeline showing what to hit and when. Most home versions distinguish single and double strikes, while arcade versions distinguish between hard and soft strikes. A drum simulating the taiko is played in time with music. Successful play builds up a life meter. If the meter is past a certain point by the end of the song, the song is passed. Despite the game's appearance, players may find the game challenging to master. Players need to accomplish at least a 65% clearance of a song which is determined by the 'tamashi gauge' to pass, and can become challenging on harder difficulties as players progress. Debut trailer: Latest trailer: Will be released later this Summer...

    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.
  18. A malevolent force known only as Lina is devouring data from a vast, interdimensional network of servers overseen by sentient computers called ”motes.” In desperation, the motes summon heroes from a variety of parallel game worlds to face off against each other in one-on-one combat. The tournament victor has the potential to be awakened as the Blade Stranger—the savior who can vanquish Lina and protect the motes from further harm! Developed by Studio Saizensen, Blade Strangers is a hardcore old-school fighting game. The streamlined four-button control scheme makes it easy for beginners to deal out damage from day one…but the intricate combos, counters and specials give tournament-caliber players plenty of opportunities for frame counting, chain construction and hit-box science. Blade Strangers will bring together an eclectic mix of characters from various games when it comes to Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Steam this Summer. Studio Saizensen is including many of its own characters, like Umihara Kawase and notoriously underarmored Solange from Code of Princess. Other confirmed characters include Gunvolt and Shovel Knight. Blade Strangers publisher Nicalis’ titles will also be represented in the game, with characters like Quote and Curly Brace from Cave Story and Isaac from The Binding of Isaac. Debut trailer: Opening cinematic (extended): >> Official website. Looks pretty sweet, but then I'm a sucker for (obscure) Japanese 2D vs. fighting games. The Fallen Angels , anyone?
  19. Has anyone else given this a try yet? It's well presented but ultimately a gatcha game. Money walls seem to be inventory and decorations. It's ok but I can't see myself sticking at it for long. It's pleasant having to pay money to roll for "5 STAR ULTRA RARE" (You cook with purely ingame items to attract pokemon) but the rest of the gatcha hooks are still there.
  20. By Konami Official Site Release Date: March 3, 2017 ABOUT IMAGES VIDEOS Couldn't pass up on making a thread for this simply because of that that promo/logo image.
  21. Switch, Playstation 4, Xbox One, Steam - 24/10/2017 ABOUT: A powerful ancient evil has arisen, and the war to save humanity has begun! The Mummy Demastered throws you into a 16-bit-inspired battle against the undead in a 2D, nonlinear, action-packed adventure. As an elite agent in the monster-hunting Prodigium organization, you must use a variety of weapons, upgrades, and mysterious artifacts to defend mankind against the supernatural hordes of Princess Ahmanet. Your Prodigium unit is already on the scene, but HQ lost contact with them hours ago. Only by exploring tombs, forests, abandoned tunnels, and the cursed streets of London will you discover the fate of your allies. But beware – Ahmanet commands legions of undead, insects, plague-ridden vermin, and worse! If you’re not careful, you’ll be the next soul in her army. KEY FEATURES: • Stunning retro-inspired graphics and atmospheric chiptune soundtrack • Shoot-’em-up action meets exploration-based adventuring • Fight for survival against swarms of horrifying enemies and bosses • Obliterate monsters with an arsenal of weapons including grenades, a flamethrower and more • Uncover and collect 50 hidden relics Reviews Playstation Universe - 8.5/10 "A thunderous Metroidvania effort that sublimely marries the timeless design of yesteryear with some of the best decisions of modern game design, The Mummy Demastered is not only a great title but also one of the genuinely best surprises of the year." Nintendo Life - 9/10 "They say don't judge a book by its cover, and you shouldn't judge this game based on its movie tie-in; with The Mummy Demastered, WayForward may have reached its apex. It deserves to stand on its own as one of the best recent examples of not only a pixel art aesthetic, but as an excellent combination of run 'n gunning, platforming and exploration. The game benefits from paying homage to multiple 16-bit ancestors rather than strictly sticking to its celluloid source material; The Mummy Demastered is a polished, accomplished and satisfying adventure that will entertain more than just Metroidvania fans." Destructoid - 7.5/10 "This game doesn't do anything meaningfully new or original for metroidvania fans, but everything here is solid and WayForward got the fundamentals right... in a licensed Mummy adaptation, of all things." Metro - 7/10 "It’s more an unofficial Castlevania game than a movie tie-in, but if you can handle the high difficultly level this is an effective substitute for the real thing."
  22. 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.
