Dr Kawashima's Devilish Brain Training: Can you stay focused? - box art

I really didn't think this one would ever see release in Europe after such a long period of no info. I don't think it's going to sell very well at all, but I hope I'm wrong! Thanks to Anon for the heads up!

Dragon Quest XI - special web video, live-stream recording, still no concrete info on Switch version

As far as the Switch version of Dragon Quest XI, Square-Enix said they don't have any concrete details to share at this time. Let's hope that info isn't too far off, and that the game releases on Switch this year.

Here are specific comments made by the Dragon Quest XI team relating to the Switch version.

“We can’t say about anything concrete regarding the Switch version of Dragon Quest XI. When the timing comes that we can say something… there are grown-up reasons. ...there are various circumstances." - Yuji Horii “When the time that we can say something does come, I think we’ll have something to say, so if you can please wait.” - producer Yosuke Saito
