Frozenbyte on supporting Switch with Has-Been Heroes, talks sales and audience

A portion of a Miketendo64 interview with Frozenbyte's Kai Tuovinen...

Miketendo64: Has-Been Heroes is an indie title that is confirmed for a Nintendo Switch release, among other platforms. How does it feel to be one of the first indie companies to have a game on Switch during launch month?

Kai Tuovinen: We are thrilled Has-Been Heroes will be a title available around launch on Nintendo Switch and to introduce Nintendo fans to the game. It feels good to be a part of a new Nintendo system launch again!

Miketendo64: Nintendo Switch may not have the power-house line up gamers wanted, but it still has Zelda and Super Bomberman R. How do you think Has-Been Heroes will do in terms of sales, when it’s up against competition such as that?

Kai Tuovinen: We believe fans of rogue-like strategy/action games will love this game, as well as gamers looking for something new to try. The randomness of spells and items allows for thousands of new experiences and will force players to continuously change their playstyle – it’s a challenging, strategic game with a ton of content that is very different from everything else.

JAKKS Pacific Teasing Zelda: Breath of the Wild Link Figure

Jakks is just pumping out the Nintendo content unlike any other! Wonder when we'll actually see this release! Thanks to PSIPancakes for the heads up.

Sneaky Ninja - another quick bit of footage

I'm a sucker for any kind of platformer, and Sneaky Ninja just seems too cute to ignore. Can't wait for this one to see release. One of the last Wii U games, I'd imagine!

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - Aonuma on Link's iconic green tunic

This question and answer section might be considered a bit of a spoiler, so please read on with caution...


Question #5: I really like the green tunic. Other characters also wear that colour, but is the green tunic in the game?

A: In this game, Link can change the clothes he’s wearing whenever he wants. You can find some in treasure chests, you can buy them, and you can receive them via special events. As for the blue uniform, it’s the same one that Princess Zelda wears. Naturally, there’s lot of different pieces of clothing for Link, and yes, you will be able to wear the iconic green tunic.

Yooka-Laylee - Blasto character art

Certainly not the Blasto I remember from gaming history, but I have a feeling this one is going to be in a much better game.

Playtonic is going to be revealing a character a day for some time now, so we'll be checking in every day to see who they show off.
