  1. 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:
  2. 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?

    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. 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.

    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.
  6. 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: Latest trailer: The game is being developed by Marvelous' First Studio using the Unreal Engine 4, and should be coming to the Nintendo Switch sometime in 2019.

  8. 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!
  9. 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: Out later this year.
  10. 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."

    Voez (eShop game)

    I'm going to try something in this thread: Every week I'm going to talk about a single eshop game a bit and see if it starts any conversatiins and maybe even sell you on the game in particular. I'm not going to go for the obvious (Hollow Knight/Into The Breach), but it'll probably be something you've heard of. First up: Voez http://www.nintendo.co.uk/Games/Nintendo-Switch-download-software/VOEZ-1201380.html Price: £18.99 Metacritic: 81% https://www.metacritic.com/game/switch/voez I've spoke about Voez a little bit in here before, because it's probably in my top 3 favourite games on the Switch (Along with Breath of the Wild and Hollow Knight is you were interested). It's a rhythm action game, with a mixture of instrumental, electronica and J-Pop tunes where you tap the screen in time to falling notes. It can be played with both the touchscreen only or the Joy-cons, but I strongly recommend the touchscreen. The Joy-cons make things far too easy and we're a definite afterthought. It's a very minimalist look, both in presentation and art style, but because of that, it never gets confusing what is going on in the game. And it's not easy. On the later difficulty levels, the lanes the notes fall down on dance across the screen, prompting you to react quickly to where you need to press. Hard mode will make you want to throw your Switch through the window. Massive kudos to Rayark for their continued support of the game as well. The game started with just over 100 songs on release. They've continually released additional songs at no extra cost (11 songs were added this week, which is what prompted me to post about it now) and it now totals 185. Which works out about 10p per song. There is a demo as well for those who want to try it. If you are tempted to buy, I would wait until next week now, just in case it shows up in the Black Friday sale. But it's great. It's beautiful. And it's one of the best rhythm games on the market. And I want more people talking about it.

    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:

    Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker

    http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2014-06-10-captain-toad-treasure-tracker-announced-for-wii-u Toad is back with his own game.
  18. Most important bit currently: Switch version out on August 7, 2018! Should leave you with enough time to complete Hollow Knight.
  19. 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: 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).

  21. http://hollowknightsilksong.com/ Hollow Knight: Silksong Revealed! No time for fluff today gang. Let’s leap straight in for the big reveal, in trailer form! Hollow Knight: Silksong is the second game by Team Cherry (that’s us!) and the full-scale sequel to Hollow Knight.And Pwoarrrrrrowza! if this one hasn’t been a struggle to keep under-wraps! Hidden behind the scenes, Hornet’s gigantic adventure has been growing (and growing and growing!) for well over a year now, with the very first pieces coming together right after the original PC release of Hollow Knight on Feb 24th 2017. Almost from the very start, Hornet’s adventure was intended to take place in a new land, but as we dove in, it quickly became too large and too unique to stay a DLC, as initially planned. We do know that makes the wait a little longer, but we think the final, fresh world you’ll get to explore is worth it. Hollow Knight: Silksong will be available, at launch, on Windows, Mac, Linux & Nintendo Switch. More platforms may happen! Just remember, we’re 3 people, already working rather hard, so we haven’t committed to anything else just yet. We don’t wanna collapse before we get this massive bug kingdom ready for you. Eager to know more about Hollow Knight: Silksong, then we’ve lots of options: You can dive into the text below; jump over to the brand new website hollowknightsilksong.com(we made this yesterday!); or you can watch us go through it all in casual video form! As Hornet, princess-protector of Hallownest, adventure through a whole new kingdom haunted by silk and song. Captured and brought to an unfamiliar land, Hornet must battle foes and solve mysteries as she ascends on a deadly pilgrimage to the kingdom’s peak. Hollow Knight: Silksong is the epic sequel to Hollow Knight, the award winning action-adventure of bugs and heroes. As the lethal hunter Hornet, journey to all-new lands, discover new powers, battle vast hordes of bugs and beasts and uncover ancient secrets tied to your nature and your past. Game Features Discover a whole new kingdom! Explore coral forests, mossy grottos, gilded cities and misted moors as you ascend to the shining citadel at the top of the world. Engage in lethal acrobatic action! Wield a whole new suite of nimble moves as you dance between foes in deadly, beautiful combat. Craft powerful tools! Master an ever-expanding arsenal of weapons, traps and mechanisms to confound your enemies and explore new heights. Solve shocking quests! Hunt down rare beasts, unearth ancient mysteries and search for lost treasures to fulfil the wishes of the downtrodden and restore the kingdom’s hope. Prepare for the unexpected! Face over 150 all-new foes! Beasts and hunters, assassins and kings, monsters and knights – defeat them all with bravery and skill! Experience a stunning orchestral score! Hollow Knight’s award-winning composer, Christopher Larkin, returns to bring melancholy melodies, symphonic strings and heart-thumping, soul strumming boss themes to the adventure. Challenge Silk Soul mode! Once you conquer the game, test your skills in an all-new mode that spins the game into a unique, challenging experience. Kickstarter Specifics To our 2158 Backers, you’ve heard it before, but Hollow Knight, and now Hornet’s entire adventure is thanks to you! Thanks to the incredible support of players and Kickstarter backers, what started out as a tiny game jam idea has become a game bought and played by over 2.8 million people! As a backer, your support made this happen, so you’ll of course be receiving your copy of Hollow Knight: Silksong 100% free. But we also know that times change, and the Nintendo Switch is quickly becoming a common (and excellent) console to own. Because of that, any backer of the game from the $10AUD and above tiers can choose to receive their copy of Hollow Knight: Silksong free on either PC or Nintendo Switch, at launch. We’ll shoot out a simple survey as we get closer to release to find out which version you’d like to receive. Higher tier backers who received multiple copies of Hollow Knight will also receive multiple copies of Hollow Knight: Silksong, the same rules apply as for Hollow Knight. You can elect for your primary copy on either Nintendo Switch or PC, with all additional copies as PC versions. Hollow Knight: Silksong PC (Windows, Mac & Linux) copies will be supplied as both a Steam Key and a DRM free version. For Silksong, backer content is again seamlessly integrated into the main game. Get ready to dance with operatic queens, battle mysterious assassins, scale a soaring warlord’s tower, and that’s just to start! If you’re one of those backers, and haven’t heard from us recently, don’t worry! We’ll be reaching out in the near future as we lock down the remaining pieces. With Silksong finally out in the open, expect lots more details in the near future. For now though, the three of us are diving back in to build this big, wild, elegant, insane world of knights, princesses, beasts and bugs! Team Cherry Out!

    Town - New RPG from 'mon devs Game Freak

    First announced in September last year, Game Freak, the developer mostly known for its seminal Pokémon franchise, is working on a new Nintendo Switch game simply named 'Town' at the moment, out sometime in 2019. Town (a working title) supposedly takes place in a village that looks like any ordinary village — a small village, even a peaceful village. You may think this is a run-of-the-mill RPG ... except that there are tons of monsters attacking Town’s ... well, town. And these are not the kinds of monsters Game Freak is best known for; they’re not pocket-sized. They’re huge. Game Freak's take on Attack on Titan then? What else can be said about Town? Not much yet, although this is Game Freak’s first Nintendo console game in quite some time. The company has also developed several non-Pokémon games before, most of them absolutely worth playing, including MegaDrive cult classic Pulseman, the awesome Drill Dozer for Game Boy Advance, and both HarmoKnight and Pocket Card Jockey for Nintendo 3DS were small yet very addictive games. So this may very well be one to keep an eye out for. Debut trailer:
  23. 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:
