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’“.

Pokémon GO – Impressions

What to say about Pokémon GO. Well it’s a mobile game, that’s never a good first impression for me since there are barely any mobile games I both play and enjoy, the only ones I can think of are Tiny Tower and Neko Atsume, both of which provide about as much depth as a swimming pool filled to the brim with drowned lifeguards.

Read my impressions on the mobile title after the break!

Nintendo at E3 2016 Video Blowout

Yesterday was a long day, and after being overwhelmed by The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and making the seemingly bad choice of  catching up with Wayward Pines before bed, I am fully now rested and am able to share more goodies from Nintendo at E3… from other people, who were actually at E3.

Beyond the door to the wilds (i.e. after the break), there are various videos from Nintendo’s bustling E3 day. Be prepared for gameplay, booth tours, Zelda galore, all you have to do is click read more!

Generation VII — Pre-Reveal Pessimism

As you may have heard, the names of the new Pokémon games were possibly leaked today. I say “possibly” because of the vague chance the names are placeholders for later… but they aren’t. It wouldn’t make any sense, unless this is all a big plan to trick us all. Which is unlikely. The new Pokémon games will be titled… (run away now if the titles are too spoilery for you (spoiler: they aren’t)…)

Pokemon Direct Scheduled For 26th/27th February

It’s been a good long while since we got to hype over a brand new Nintendo Direct, but the wait is finally over – as long as you have an interest in Pokemon, that is.

Nintendo have announced a new Pokemon Direct for February 26th/27th. In Japan, this will be on none other than Pokemon Day – the 20th Anniversary of the release of the games that started it all.

  • USA (PST) – 7AM, 26th February
  • UK (GMT) – 3PM, 26th February
  • Europe (CET) – 4PM, 26th February
  • Japan – (JST) – Midnight, 27th February
  • Australia – (Canberra) – 2AM, 27th February

Given the recent hype around the juggernaut series, as well as the length of time since the last release, the odds must be good that we’ll see a new main series title announced. But will that game be the almost inevitable Pokemon Z, or perhaps it could be the dawn of a brand new generation? There’s also a good chance we might hear more about the long awaited Pokemon Go, but of course we’ll have to wait and see.

And you never know, if a new main series game ends up as a launch title for the handheld portion of the NX, we might even end up getting that long awaited HD home console game. We can always dream…
