Players do NOT need to pre-download anything to play LEGO City Undercover

Yesterday, the picture of the boxart of the Nintendo Switch version of Lego City Undercover was shown. In a previous article, we noted some odd information that the box had provided. According to the box, players needed at least 13 GB of storage in order to play the game, despite the game being a physical cartridge and only being 7 GB large. Warner Bros. has now come out with the following statement:

Players who purchase Lego City Undercover on Nintendo Switch at retail do not need to download the game to play.

Although this statement verifies that the game can be played without any prior downloads, there is still confusion as to why this message is even on the box at all. Either way, players can rest assured knowing the game can now be played with relative ease.

Kamiko announced for the Switch, will be available on Japanese eShop next month

According to this week's issue of Famitsu, a development company known as Skipmore announced that they would be finishing their first Nintendo Switch game, Kamiko, within the next month. The game is currently 90% developed, and the current price for it is planned to be ¥500.

Kamiko is an action game with a pixel-based style. Players play as a Kamiko, and there are three different Kamiko available in the game that each have a different ability. The three Kamiko are as follows:

  • Yamato - Uses a sword with a long reach
  • Uzume - Uses long-range bow attack
  • Hinome - Uses a throwing shield like a boomerang

After choosing a character, players must then challenge a stage and battle against a boss toward the end of it. There are currently no plans for a translated version of the game, but if any relevant information is provided, it will be posted here on the site.

Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology announced, planned to launch in Japan on June 29

The following information comes from this week's issue of Famitsu:

Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology for 3DS, a full remake of the 2010-released DS title Radiant Historia with a new scenario.

- Scheduled for release in Japan on June 29.

- Will have enhanced graphics and new, beautiful insert scenes for events.

- Includes a full lineup of voice actors that did not appear in the original game.

- When you start the game, you can choose from two modes: Perfect Mode and Append Mode.

- In Perfect Mode, you can choose to play a newly added Sub-History in addition to the Standard History and Alternate History of the original title right from the beginning of the game. In Append Mode, you start with Standard History and Alternate History, and after clearing those, move on to Sub-History. Difficulty level can also be changed.

- The game's animation is being done by A-1 Pictures.

- The protagonist is Stocke (voiced by Katsuyuki Konishi) – A spy belonging to Alistel’s Special Intelligence agents. He possesses the White Chronicle, which allows him to traverse the timeline.

Nemesia (voiced by Mikako Komatsu) is a new character. She is a mysterious girl that appears before Stocke. She holds the key to the new scenario, “Sub-History,” and is traveling in search of a mysterious material known as the “artifact.”

- According to the developers of the game...

The third history that is neither the Standard History or the Alternate History is the Sub-History. The Sub-History is not just a single parallel world—the treatment of characters and timeline interpretation, how the Sub-History was born, each of these is different from the Standard History and Alternate History.
