  1. 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!
  2. At last. Who's who on Animal Crossing, well find out here. Don't forget to add yourself: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1KrDETHY2apv5_CTVaMLIAls1JDpgMy4gxw8KBnrssLo/edit#gid=0
  3. 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.
  4. 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! Images: Debut trailer: E3 2019 trailer: Latest trailer: Astral Chain should launch on August 30 for Nintendo Switch as another Platinum game exclusive for Nintendo. *** "police may cry", copyright probotector (the forum member, not the pachinko machine).
  5. 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:
  6. Looks metal af, especially as the world is called Cvstodia, and using Vs as Us is fvcking cvlt . No doubt I'll buy it, play it for an hour before I realise I'm fucking awful at it and never play it again but shit, look at it.
  7. Source: http://oniongames.jp/news/moon-is-coming-to-nintendo-switch-in-english One of the most unique, surreal and fourth-wall breaking PS1 titles Moon: Remix RPG Adventure is coming to the Switch next month, with a first-time English localisation soon after! A classic from the small band of developers of Love-de-lic*, whose alumni went on to make some of the most eccentric games of that era, like Chibi Robo, Giftpia, Captain Rainbow, Chulip, Little King's Story, Contact ( @deKay ) the bizarre Tingle (think Zelda) spinoffs, all sorts; it all started with Moon. I revel in titles like these and have hankered for a Moon translation for years, as has a dedicated online audience meddling in stalled fan translations and petitions. The grandaddy of an entire movement of cozy, eccentric, eerie, alternative games with hard themes and garbled speech, I couldn't be happier that Moon, is finally coming to the West. If UFO: A Day In The Life follows I'll be ecstatic. The Dreamcast's Lack Of Love, too. One of the most underrated youtube channels has this worthwhile watch. For those that have been following it, it would appear that the fan translation guys have been let off the hook, no doubt to their utter relief. Ironically, just last month they made the game public through a discord channel and were finally near the end after years of limbo. Bit unlucky. * Here's some coverage of another Love-de-lic classic the forum might recall. All of their games share a surreal, melancholy core. And its reach is still felt today.
  8. I'm surprised there's no topic for this yet but here we are, the remake of Seiken Densetsu 3, aka Secret of Mana 2 aka Trials of Mana is coming out in April and there's a demo available now, for Switch at the least. I've played it for a while and it seems like a very faithful remake of the original SNES game, if a little low-budget compared to something like Dragon Quest XI, keeping the colourful charm and lovely music of the old game and tarting it up for modern tech. The battle system has had a bit of an overhaul too, feeling much better than the clunky 16bit version, and it's worth keeping an eye out for the eventual release. Here's a long video of the Switch demo if you don't want to download it yourself.
  9. Or in slightly off-shoot related language-speak:
  10. There’s obviously been talk in the eShop megathread because where else ever why?... but thought I’d start a thread in order to post big DF John ‘The Legend’ Linneman’s video here: I’m not pure dying to play it or anything, but I can definitely see me getting round to it soon. Love me a puzzle platformer explore em up. Anyone tried it?

  13. Forget next-gen, this has to be the trailer of the year. Oh, and it's a really good game too, if the first reviews are any indication. https://www.destructoid.com/review-huntdown-590605.phtml
  14. Strangely enough, there isn't a topic on this game yet. Strangely enough, because it looks like it could be one of the last great games released for the regular NDS. The game's been out in Japân for a couple of months now, and has received reasonable critical acclaim (33/40 in Famitsu). It's been confirmed for a July 2011 Euro release (no US release though) last week. What got me interested, are the high profile developers/designers attached to this title; most notably CyberConnect2 itself (responsible for the .hack// series and more recently Asura's Wrath) and Madhouse (Animatrix, Death Note etc.). The game itself is an action-JRPG and is the pseudo-sequel to the rather unknown PSX title Tail Concerto (1999). More info, images, and video can be found on the official Japanese site. Official Euro boxart.
  15. this seems up a lot of our streets, doing drift turns and so on.
  16. New P5 game just announced for the PS4 and Switch, a musou style game from Atlus and Koei Tecmo. New thread to allow the other P5 one to stay on the original game and The Royal First Trailer below.

    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. https://uk.ign.com/articles/samurai-jack-video-game-announced-for-pc-ps4-xbox-and-switch http://www.adultswim.com/games/samurai-jack http://soleilgamestudios.com/EN/games/20001/ Developed by Soleil Game Studios, whose CEO Yoshifuru Okamoto worked as a producer on Ninja Gaiden II and Devil's Third. The IGN article suggests that others in the development team worked on Ninja Gaiden and DOA too. Here's the trailer; watch to the end to hear Greg Baldwin's Aku saying "Rated T for Teen"! Unfortunately, although some of the graphics look like they do a good job of translating the caroon's geometric style into 3D (e.g. those spiky tree trunks and pastel leaf blobs in the background at 0:14), they haven't gone for a borderless, flat cel-shaded style that would have matched the cartoon. Also, so far there's not enough robot oil blood splattering on display for my liking! Looks like the game will cover events from the original series run, as well as season 5's Bearded, Machine-Gunning Biker Jack. This means we'll be able to fight at least two of the seven Daughters of Aku, who gave us one of the best animated fight sequences I've ever seen. And yes, the Scotsman will be in it, which is good news because season 5 didn't give us enough of him! The alligator robot from this shot is from the episode where he first turned up: From IGN:
  19. A sequel to 2010’s cult favorite Deadly Premonition is finally on its way and it will release as a launch exclusive on Nintendo Switch. SWERY is once again writing and directing the sequel (that is actually meant to be a prequel), which will follow FBI agent Aaliyah Davis as she investigates an old serial killer case in Boston. Aaliyah’s new case also has a connection to a 14-year-old case in New Orleans that was investigated by FBI agent Francis York Morgan, the protagonist of the first game. Players will control both characters, it seems, as their stories intersect and reveal clues about each other’s cases. For Switch players who missed out on the first game when it was released, they’ll still be able to catch up. A new version of the original game, called Deadly Premonition Origins, is available on the Nintendo eShop. Debut trailer: Launch trailer: Deadly Premonition 2 is scheduled for a Summer release on Nintendo Switch in 2020.

    Couldn't find a thread for this but it's out now and in early access with founder packs available for purchase and a load of free codes knocking about the usual places. Gameplay trailer: Useless CGI trailer: So what you get is a 60fps free to play 3rd person team shooter. It's cross play on all consoles and has great gyro controls on Switch. I do wonder how many of these hero shooters can be sustained but! This one is from the makers of SMITE and Paladins and runs and plays really well, despite some beta jankiness. TLDR: it's a bit like Uncharted multiplayer with counterstrike in-round purchases, hero abilities and runs very well indeed. Founders packs available currently, of which I think skins and character unlocks are the difference. Starter £14 Standard £30 Ultimate £60 Expect it to go totally FTP late Autumn.
  21. https://balanwonderworld.square-enix-games.com/en-gb/main/ This video includes their introduction with English subtitles, as well as the trailer: Edit: Here's the longer version, from the official site And the trailer alone: Looks like a very traditional platformer, with character design that fortunately looks a lot more NiGHTS than Blinx. In particular, those bosses look extremely NiGHTS-y - not just their character designs, but also their attacks (spike balls and flames) remind me of some of the hazards in that game's final boss fight. And that voiceover is earnestly cheesy in exactly the same way as the narration in Christmas NiGHTS... "Cephalopainter" - is that a Splatoon reference? And a few seconds later at 1:10 there's a familiar-looking blue runner! Did I mention that it's all very reminiscent of the 1996 Sega Saturn game NiGHTS Into Dreams?
  22. 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
  23. Mark this up as one of the first big Switch exclusive third party titles. Coming to you courtesy of Atlus. Sorry for quoting tweets, but I haven't been able to find separate shots. Yet.
  24. Yes, we already have a huge thread for the Wii release of this game. But it's the best JRPG ever (Source: Me) and lots of people will be coming to it new with the new Switch version, so why not a new thread for it? So What Is It? It's the best JRPG ever - I've already told you that (quiet in the back - it is a JRPG). Huge, open worlds, great storyline set on the back of two huge titans, where people and machines now live and are at war with each other. And fantastic characters as well. It's the scope of the game which I fell in love with - MonolithSoft helped with the world design in Breath Of The Wild and the "Hey, that looks interesting! Let's go over there and explore!" is present and correct here as well. So What's New? Upgraded visuals, of course. A new area. A new soundtrack (with the option to change between the old and new). New menus and maps. But most importantly, a 12-15 hour epilogue with new voice recordings of the original cast which (apparently) tie into future games. Oohhhh. Dual audio as well, for those who don't like the English voiceovers. Don't Believe Me? Have Some Reviews!
