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…)

Other Nintendo Gamescom News from Day One

The other big news of the day was a release date for Fire Emblem Warriors on both Switch and New 3DS: 20th of October. In Europe at least, the Switch version is also available in a Limited Edition Bundle that will include the game, a 3-disc soundtrack collection and character cards.

For Pokkén enthusiasts, the announcement of the Pokkén Tournament DX demo being released on the eShop this Thursday was quite exciting. Anyone unfamiliar with the game is also encouraged to try it.

And finally – although technically only speculation at this point – it was strongly implied that Final Fantasy XV will be coming to the Switch at some point. When talking through a translator about Final Fantasy XV “about what other things we have planned in the future“, Hajime Tabate of Square Enix said “there’s a certain other console that sounds a lot like ‘Twitch'” and that “everyone on Final Fantasy XV, they love this specific console that sounds a lot like ‘Twitch’“.

REVIEW – Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia

A few years ago, Fire Emblem raised itself from the grave with Fire Emblem Awakening. Since then, the series seemed to have revitalised. Not only did we receive three versions of Fire Emblem Fates for the 3DS and Fire Emblem Heroes for mobile devices, but there are also three more games of the tactical role-playing game set to release by the end of 2018. One of these games include the newly release Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia.

Fire Emblem Echoes follows the intertwining adventures of Alm and Celicaduring the war between two factions of Valentia. Does Fire Emblem Echoes’ release have decent strategy, or will it fall just like many knights of Valentia? Find out in our review, after the break!
