One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4 - TGS 2019 gameplay

ONE PIECE: PIRATE WARRIORS 4 will elevate the genre to new heights with a brand new graphical engine, new epic boss battles and the biggest roster of the whole series. Fans of the franchise will experience first-hand the original story of the Straw Hat Crew, including the most recent Whole Cake Island arc – which follows the crew in their quest to retrieve Sanji from one of the most dangerous, and largest, pirates – Big Mom.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses most likely the best-selling game in franchise history in the U.S. when digital sales are factored in

Things just keep looking up

NPD's Mat Piscatella has taken to Twitter to talk about the sales of Fire Emblem: Three Houses. According to Piscatella, the game is doing extremely well for itself. Fire Emblem: Awakening still holds the record for best-selling entry in the U.S., but Three Houses should be overtaking it very soon. Check out Mr. Piscatella's full comments on the matter below.

Wanted to follow up on Fire Emblem: Three Houses. It ranked as the #4 best-selling game of August in the U.S. sales rankings from The NPD Group, after finishing July at #2. So a very nice ranking hold from month 1 to month 2.

As you'll recall, launch month sales of Fire Emblem: Three Houses tripled those of the previous best-selling launch month title in the series. Month 2 sales of Fire Emblem: Three Houses were again the best in franchise history, although not at the same multiplier as month 1.

On a lifetime basis, Fire Emblem: Awakening remains the best-selling game in franchise history in the U.S.. However, I do anticipate Fire Emblem: Three Houses to overcome this gap and take the lead in lifetime sales for the franchise in September.

And, of course, since Nintendo is not currently a member of the Digital Leader Panel, I'm only talking about Physical sales here. Accounting for digital I am certain Fire Emblem: Three Houses is the best-selling game in franchise history, likely by a significant margin. Shrug.

Nintendo gives another look at the returning special items in Mario Kart Tour

Damn that banana

Nintendo shares more details on what's new in Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore

Not just a straight port

Looking for new info on Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore? Nintendo has opened a page that details some of the changes and added content for the game. You can check out all the details below, and check out more screens here.

Fighting Alongside Mirages

Fights are done with Mirages like Chrom by your side, and they are essential weapons to defeating your enemies. By attacking enemy weaknesses, Sessions are started where your other party members will follow up with attacks. Apart from elemental attacks, there is also the Fire Emblem series’ weapon triangle, and as such it’s a must to keep track of enemy weaknesses.

For example, in the above screenshots Kiria starts off with an ice element attack, which is followed by Itsuki’s ice-element Session skill, then followed up by Touma’s sword-type skill.

Idol Life

Even with an invasion of Mirages, the other side to Tokyo Mirage Sessions is watching our crew try to fulfill their entertainment industry dreams, including singing, live concerts, appearing in dramas and performances, in order to reach the top.

A New Song, New Outfits, New Story

The Nintendo Switch version is adding in new content, such as a new song, new outfits, as well as more story content, including a new dungeon. Additionally, Maiko, Barry, and Tiki will also participate in battles, helping extend Sessions to even greater heights.

We see Mamori, one of the playable characters, wearing a new costume based on the Garreg Mach Officer’s Academy uniform from Fire Emblem: Three Houses.

Check out new screens for Yo-Kai Watch on Switch

As was announced a few weeks back, Yo-Kai Watch's first game is getting an HD remake for Switch. It's hitting Japan on Oct. 10th, 2019, and some new screens of the title have been released. You can check out the gallery here.
