Octopath Traveler in the Spotlight

Square Enix’s Project Octopath Traveler took the third Spotlight in the Direct just gone. After having only a brief reveal amongst the crazy amount of hype back in January’s Switch Presentation, this title has been overlooked for a while… until now.

The stunning ‘HD-2D’ style sets it apart from many games, and despite the simplicity in its roots, the game is a graphical masterpiece (at least in this writer’s opinion) with the level of quality come to be expect of the company, and gorgeous CG effects through Unreal Engine 4.

Xenoblade 2 Direct info and releases!

Fittingly, the lengthiest section of the recent Direct was given to Xenoblade Chronicles 2, which is set to be one of the larger and more complex games coming to Switch. This Spotlight explained a bit of context for the game’s story and how the combat works, which has been extracted into its own video you can see here.

The entire thing is voiced over by Azurda the Titan, who is friend and landlord of the protagonist Rex; though Koizumi chips in at the end to announce the beautiful Xenoblade 2 themed Pro Controller and Collector’s Edition including a soundtrack CD, 220 page hardbound art book at metal case.

Nintendo Direct Summary: September 2017

Nintendo crammed new reveals and information for over 40 titles in last night’s Nintendo Direct. Taking the Spotlight segments were Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Project Octopath Traveler and of course, Super Mario Odyssey.

Some of the most notable reveals were from Bethesda as they are bringing DOOM and Wolfenstein II to the Switch with the former in Winter this year and the latter in 2018. On a more peculiar note, Minecraft is coming to the New Nintendo 3DS ‘soon’ but with no word on compatibility with other versions. (more…)

PREVIEW – Super Mario Odyssey at Insomnia61

For the first time, Super Mario Odyssey was publicly available to try in the UK, so this journalist seized the opportunity to sample Mario’s upcoming adventure at Insomnia61. It seemed to be the same demo they’ve been using for all its other events, so I was restricted to the Sand and Metro Kingdoms, and only had about 10 minutes before I had to stop. Nevertheless I’ve been so hyped to try this game so let’s get straight to impressions!

European Download 24/08/17 – Pokémon Discounts, Pokkén Demo and More

The eShop is gearing up for a lot of Pokémon next month, with sizeable discounts on the 3DS Virtual Console releases of Red, Blue and Yellow; and the Pokkén Tournament DX demo on Switch that dropped today. The Game Boy titles drop 36% percent to £5.75 / €6.39 granted you have a Nintendo Account linked, otherwise the discount’s a tad smaller. The Pokkén demo lets you play as Pikachu, Charizard and Empoleon and supports local multiplayer (on a single screen). Although it can only be played 15 times, you can get around this by deleting and redownloading it unlike restricted use 3DS demos.

This week another retail game comes out in the form of Minecraft: Story Mode – The Complete Adventure. ‘Metroidvania’ indie hit forma.8 debuts on switch at £8.99 / €9.99 and it’s Wii U counterpart has also dropped to that price. On another Wii U note, Final Soldier (VC PC Engine) and Soldier Blade (VC TurboGrafx-16) have released at £6.29 / €6.99 and £5.39 / €5.99 respectively.

And finally, Piczle Lines DX releases at £13.99 / €14.99 and another member of the ACA NEOGEO range – PUZZLED – comes at the standard price of £6.29 / €6.99. While four sets of DLC for RPG Maker Fes come at £0.89 / €0.99 a piece. And in case you forgot, there’s another Testpunch for ARMS starting tomorrow (16:00 GMT) and ending on Sunday (21:00 GMT) so don’t forget to download it if you’re interested!

Rocket League Switch Exclusives Revealed

Today Psyonix showcased three Switch exclusive vehicles through their Rocket League YouTube channel.

The video showed (rather expected) Mario and Luigi vehicles named ‘Mario NSR’ and ‘Luigi NSR’ respectively. But as you may have guessed from the featured image, the show stopper was the car based on ‘Samus’ Gunship’ which looks absolutely stunning.

These vehicles come free and will be available to unlock on launch day (though we still know no further than Holiday 2017). And despite how gorgeous the trailer is, there wasn’t any gameplay so we don’t know if sparks and movement graphics will be replaced by Stars and rainbows for the Mario cars – at least I’m hoping for this attention to detail to be realised!

Pyonix still hasn’t detailed what the ‘exclusive customization items‘ will be, or whether any more vehicles will be released on or after launch, yet with the quality of that Metroid representation, I’m sure it’ll be just as awesome.
