We knew that Shinobi Refle: Senran Kagura was due to be released sometime this year, but it turns out it’s actually quite soon – the game will be released this Friday, on November 24th. It will be an eShop-exclusive title. Since the Switch is region-free, you will be able to easily download it by accessing the Japanese eShop. Note that the game has received a Cero D rating in Japan, which means it’s an 18+ / adults-only game.

The Pokemon Company launches “Project Eevee” Twitter account, teases “something” for tomorrow
Posted 1 hour ago by Matt in General Nintendo, News | 1 Comment
The Pokemon Company has launched a new Twitter account seemingly centered on a new project of some kind – Project Eevee. At the moment, we know pretty much nothing about what this is. So far, the account has only made a single tweet, teasing “the start of something” for tomorrow, November 21st, at 9 PM JST. It’s worth noting that this account is in Japanese and so far, only the Japanese Pokemon Twitter account follows it, so whatever Project Eevee is, it may just be a minor, Japan-only thing (for now). Either way, we will keep you updated.
Fire Emblem Heroes – Brave hero summons returns and upcoming tempest trial
Firstly there will be a new tempest trail coming out on November 21st called the Less Than Heroic trial where the brave heroes will be able to receive a point bonus for participating in the trail. Next the summoning focus with all four brave heroes has returned with Brave Roy, Brave Lucina, Brave Lyn and Brave Ike being the focus starting now. Both the summon and focus will be available until December 5th.
Here is a video showcasing an early look at Battle Chef Brigade for the Nintendo Switch uploaded by NintenDaan. The video shows off a good amount of the beginning story and the puzzle mechanics. You can check out the video down below to see how the game starts.
