    Yoshi's Crafted World - demo out now

    Nintendo finally provided an update on the new Yoshi game for Switch. Confirming the final name Yoshi’s Crafted World, the game launches Spring 2019. Yoshi's Crafted World will allow players to join up with a friend, which is a nice touch; and it also lets players walk backward, practically a sin for side-scrolling platformers. Other than that, Yoshi’s new adventure seems to be much akin to his previous one, except much, much glossier. Which should be alright. So, the game is a side-scrollingplatformer where 3D characters are moved on a 2D plane. Unlike most side-scrolling games, though, Yoshi's Crafted World allows the player to view the game from two opposite viewpoints, allowing the camera to "flip sides" to see behind objects. The viewpoint is changed when the player has the Yoshi character stomp on the ground. Outside of this new mechanic, the game plays similar to prior Yoshi games, where the player may use Yoshi's tongue to eat enemies or other objects, turn them into eggs, and throw them outwardly into the level. The game will feature a two-player multiplayer mode, where each player maneuvers their own Yoshi through the game's levels Screenshots: Japanese debut trailer: Latest trailer:
  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:

    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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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!

    Cadence of Hyrule

    Crypt of the Necrodancer, only Zelda. No, I mean literally that.
  9. Will admit, I robbed whole parts of this off the thread on ResetEra. This looks incredibly beautiful. Eurogamer says: Endgadget: The platforming seems a bit simplistic, but I really does remind me of a 2D Journey, in that it's more about the experience than navigating tricky environments. It's out December this year on Switch and PC.

    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.

    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.

    Xenoblade Chronicles 2

    Sequel to the Wii game? Regardless, it looks amazing. No one does open world JRPGs quite like MonolithSoft. If they can cut out all the extraneous crap from X (and the godawful music), it will be amazing. EDIT: revlob has very kindly created a helpful manual himself:

    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
  21. Release: 28th April 2017 Formats: PS4, Switch Price: £24.99 (PS4) £34.99 (Switch) What is Puyo Puyo? What is Tetris? Really? You know this! So what is Puyo Puyo Tetris? Gameplay Why should I get this? Puyo Puyo Tetris is quite simply the best competitive puzzle game on the market. The mashup works really well to create some really interesting modes, but even if that isn't for you, then you can play straight up Puyo vs and Tetris vs. Or even simple traditional single player Tetris and basic Puyo. Both Tetris and Puyo are the very best in the puzzler field and they work just as well together as they do individually. There is a simplicity to the games, but as the cliche saying goes. Simple to play, difficult to master. You only truly understand the skill levels involved when you take on other players. Much like the fighting game scene. Don't be put off though, as it is a lot more inviting than that genre and you can compete as you improve. The game was previously released in Japan only on Xbox One, PS4, PS3, PS Vita, Xbox 360 but only physically, due to some odd licensing laws. This Western release is only on Switch and PS4 unfortunately, however on the Switch the game is available digitally for the first time. I implore you to get this, not just because it is great, but it might mean we start to see further releases of Puyo titles in the west and maybe even a resurgence of the likes of Super Puzzle Fighter and other games influenced by Puyo and Tetris.

  22. I got my Steam key this morning! Who else is jumping in? http://www.causalbitgames.com/our-games/battle-princess-madelyn/
  23. 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?
  24. Most important bit currently: Switch version out on August 7, 2018! Should leave you with enough time to complete Hollow Knight.
