Last week, Dragon Quest XI’s Skill Panel system was revealed via Shonen Jump. Today, the game’s official website was updated with a section on the Skill Panel system (thanks to Gematsu for the translation). It doesn’t really reveal anything new, though it does provide a look at some of the skills you can get, such as Camus’ “Slime Blow”, Veronica’s “Magical Awakening” and Silvia’s “Flute of Fascination”.

The website also revealed an interesting new system – the Spell of Restoration. This is essentially a sort of cross-platform save date transfer. By entering a code, you can continue your adventure at roughly the same point in the story on another platform. However, only the main character’s name and your progress in the story is transferred over – your party’s levels, gold and items will change to a pre-determined value based on your progress in the main story. This sort of save data transfer will initially work with the game’s 3DS and PS4 versions. However, it seems likely that the Switch version will be compatible with this feature as well, once it is released.

It’s time for the latest Famitsu‘s most wanted games chart. Splatoon 2 is now back in the top five.

Head past the break for the full chart. All votes were cast between April 6 and April 12.

As previously announced, Monster Hunter XX’s Zelda: Breath of the Wild collaboration has kicked off in Japan. 7-Eleven stores will be distributing the new content through the end of May. It encompasses special gear, quests, and more. Take a closer look at the collaboration below.

Monster Hunter Stories was finally announced for the west during the most recent Nintendo Direct. However, it was only discussed briefly with a confirmed fall launch in North America and Europe.

In Japan, a number of different amiibo were created for Monster Hunter Stories. Although nothing has been said about the figures in the west, they’re likely heading coming over with the game itself.

The official boxart for Monster Hunter Stories was revealed alongside the overseas announcement. And as you can see, while it seems to have slipped by most people, the packaging image has the traditional amiibo logo tucked away in the top-right corner. As far as we’re aware, only the Monster Hunter Stories amiibo are compatible with the game. So even though folks have been wondering about the Monster Hunter Stories figures, this should mean that we’ll be seeing them in North America and Europe.
