XSEED Will Localize Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns’ DLC

XSEED Will Localize Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns’ DLC

Near the start of the month, we discussed the predicament facing the DLC for Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns.   As a quick refresher, Trio of Towns received an extensive amount of free content in Japan, to the point where the Trio of Towns DLC was about the same size (in terms of word count) as a full game like Corpse Party. Releasing that amount of content in North America, where Trio of Towns is less expensive and its audience is smaller, would be too expensive for XSEED to consider unless it was paid DLC. XSEED asked fans to let them know which they preferred: no DLC or DLC release in three packs for $3.99 each. Fans responded overwhelmingly in support of the DLC. As a result, XSEED ... »

Reviewed: Pocket Card Jockey

When Game Freak decided to make a game about an aspiring jockey, they realized the one thing horse racing games have been missing all these years: solitaire. In Pocket Card Jockey for the Nintendo 3DS, you play a young jockey whose first attempt to race a horse ends in a fatal accident. However, thanks to an angel who enjoys horse races, you’re given a second chance at life with a special power that lets you channel your solitaire skills into racing. Horse racing and solitaire might not seem like the most obvious combination, but Pocket Card Jockey makes it work. In each leg of the race, you use the touchscreen to position your horse and gather energy, and then you play a round of golf... »

Voez, a Portable-Only Switch Rhythm Game, Coming West in 2017

Voez is a rhythm action game originally released for mobile devices, but now it’s on its way to the Nintendo Switch. It will be a launch title in Japan, and Circle Entertainment announced it will publish Voez in the West (as well as other Nintendo games) in 2017.

Today’s “Nindies” showcase of indie games coming to the Nintendo Switch was filled with exciting news, including official news about a few big titles. Yooka-Laylee, which was anticipated for the Switch after the Wii U version was cancelled, has been officially announced for a release sometime in 2017.

Archer and Rider Link Amiibo Functionality in Breath of the Wild Discovered

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will be compatible with multiple Legend of Zelda amiibo figures, and now we finally know the functionality of two of the two ones: Archer Link and Rider Link. Thanks to images that have surfaced online of the boxes for these two amiibo figures, we know that they give you rare in-game items. The Archer Link amiibo will give you rare bows, and the Rider Link amiibo will give you rare horse-related items (such as a saddle) and weapons. Meanwhile, using this information together with glimpses of the amiibo boxes in GameXplain’s Nintendo Switch unboxing video, we can hypothesize that the Zelda amiibo will give you some a shield and the Guardian amiibo... »

5 Ways I Hope the Switch Improves Over the Wii U

5 Ways I Hope the Switch Improves Over the Wii U

I love the Wii U, but there’s no denying that it wasn’t exactly a resounding success. Here are a few ways I hope the Nintendo Switch is an improvement. 1. Large Library The Wii U suffered from a lack of third-party support, and that meant its library ended up somewhat small. More than anything else, I want the Switch to have a robust library of games from all genres. 2. Large Virtual Console Speaking of game libraries, what about older games? The Virtual Console is fantastic, 3. Eshop Gifts When Nintendo made it possible to buy digital Wii U and 3DS games online to download later, it was a fantastic move. Unfortunately, you can’t give a digital gift to a friend–or eve... »
