It was a two-person show today. Mom Brain had to deal with me for over an hour. I feel so bad for her! She also had to take on the NPD challenge by herself. She's such a trooper!
I am so stoked for the actual championships. I am going to make it my mission to be there to watch the finals live! Looked like a blast at E3 a couple years ago. I'm not missing out on this one! Thanks to Magitroopa for the heads up!
Coming from a Game Informer interview with series producer Yoshio Sakamoto...
“Through the development of Metroid: Samus Returns, I was able to really grasp the possibility and fun of a 2D Metroid. Like when I finished the first game, if there is another opportunity to make another Metroid, that is something that I would love to do. Of course, that really depends on how much people really want to buy a 2D Metroid.”
Obviously you can show your support for a 2D Metroid buy buying Metroid: Samus Returns. I'm guessing plenty of you are looking to do that!
Thanks to Magitroopa for the heads up!
The Super Mario 64 love continues on with yet another fan-made mod. The goal of this one is to add online multiplayer, with 8 players in total when all is said and done. Certainly an ambitious goal, but one I'd definitely be interested in checking out. Thanks to cm30 for the heads up!
Looks like all the excitement from the Pokemon World Championships is spilling out to the rest of us! I'm pretty surprised the game is getting a demo, considering its a port of the Wii U/Arcade game. Still, a free demo isn't anything I'm going to complain about! Thanks to ContraNetwork for the heads up!
Okay, this is getting a little silly now. We've had multiple retailers show that Telltale's Batman series is coming to Switch, yet Telltale themselves remain silent. Now Amazon has added a listing for Batman: The Enemy Within on Switch, with a date of Oct. 31st. I mean, it seems like this is a done deal. Why on earth would Telltale keep holding back this info?
We've known for awhile that the game was coming to Switch, but it's certainly nice to see an update. Still no word on when the game will release. We know the developer was considering a physical release on Switch as well, so hopefully those plans are still coming together. Thanks to _digital_ for the heads up!
Check out this discussion, which comes from Level-5's Inazuma Eleven live-stream earlier today. The discussion is between the live-stream's MC, and Level-5 CEO Akihiro Hino...
MC: People are asking which console it will be released for.
Hino: Well, no one would thought it will be 3DS after they saw the footage we showed on the last stream.
MC: Please also release it for 3DS.
Hino: No no no no… Sw….
MC: Swi….I will buy whatever console you’ll release [Inazuma Eleven] on. But currently it’s really difficult to buy a Switch, so…
Hino: What? Who said it is for Switch?
I mean, that certainly seems like a tease for the Switch. People have been thinking this would come to Switch for a long time now. We know it's not for 3DS! If only Level-5 would come right out and say where the game is heading!
