Super Mario Calendar 2019 seeing release in Japan

Ensky is on a roll with officially-licensed Nintendo calendars! The next one in their lineup is a Super Mario Calendar 2019, which will ship out on October 11th, 2018.

My Nintendo Japan - Update for Sept. 21st, 2018

My Nintendo Japan is currently offering 20% discounts off for these Xenoblade 2 items

- Xenoblade 2 A4 Clear File (4 pieces set)
- Xenoblade 2 A3 Clear Poster (21 pieces set)
- Xenoblade 2 High Definition Acrylic Art Board

Three more Kickstarter projects aiming to release on Switch - Encased, KnifeBoy, and Infinite Mana

The game is set in an alternate 1970's and revolves around the exploration of the Dome, a mysterious structure discovered in a remote desert. No one knows the exact nature of those who built the Dome, but the founders of this advanced civilization have come to be called the Forefathers.

Why I'm here? Let's cut to the case! KnifeBoy is Solo-developed by myslef and the Game has been in development for 2 years - I have literally worked on this Game non-stop and it's finally coming together - but - I lack the skills to write good dialogues and I have no musical talent whatsoever... So, I need your help to raise enough funds so I can outsource Music and Writing to improve the overall quality of the Game! I really want to make this game Great, rather than "just another Indie Game". The Art, the Enemies, the Level Design and the Unique Story telling looks and feels different from other games in this genre...I mean... this is the 1st Ever Mortal-Metroid-Kombat-Vania Game, so of course its different... But with your help, I can hopefully add great dialogue and music to the list of awesomeness & make this game something special!

Infinite Mana is a retro-style, open world RPG with light sandbox features and glitch mechanics set in the immense magickal world of Arukea. It has a unique design that pays tribute to classic RPGs from the 8/16-bit eras through its style and subtle nods in gameplay, but with an emphasis on modern game design elements. It is a mix of newness and nostalgia that is lovingly crafted to evoke a sense of wonder which is seemingly gone from many RPGs nowadays. Every step has something new to discover and is lovingly crafted to take you off guard, so expect the unexpected.

Thanks to PhantomLiger for the heads up!

Banjo-Kazooie composer thinks if a sequel were ever to be made, a company outside of RARE would have to handle it

Banjo-Kazooie is a huge part of any N64 fan's experience with the system. Such a fantastic pair of games that really showed what the N64 could do. All these years later, fans are still waiting for a true third entry in the franchise. Would that ever be something RARE would tackle? Here's what Banjo-Kazooie creator Grant Kirkhope had to say.

“That’s my same point. You know, I don’t feel like… the only way I think Banjo-Kazooie would get remade is if another studio took it on. Rare haven’t got an appetite. They don’t want to do it, I don’t think. I don’t know, but I’ve got friends over there and we don’t talk about it. It’s just such a gut feeling in that Rare wouldn’t do another Banjo-Kazooie game. Convince somebody else to do it.

Like, Killer Instinct was done by that other studio, I forgot what they’re called. I kinda feel like if Banjo was to happen again they’d fire it off to somebody else. And whether they’d get the humour of it, and make a good game out of it, I don’t know. You know, I’d probably say no. But then, I just worked on a Mario Rabbids with a studio in Milan that got all the Mario-ness, they got it, picked all of it up, put in a game and its Nintendo quality. So, it’s completely possible.

I guess it would take a studio to approach Rare and say: “Give us a Banjo IP, we wanna make a game.” You gotta think there’s money in it – there’s gotta be money in it for somebody. If they can make money out of it, then I guess they can have a go out of it. But my guess is Rare haven’t got the appetite for a Banjo-K game. They might, but it doesn’t [look] like that to me.”
