Capcom has announced that they will be holding a 30th anniversary Mega Man live stream on December 4th, from 11 AM to 12 PM PST on Twitch. We don’t really have any further details at this moment, other than Capcom’s insistence that “you won’t want to miss it”. The Mega Man franchise hasn’t exactly been booming lately, so it’s quite possible that this event won’t have any gaming-related news at all (or nothing Nintendo-related). In any case, if there are any big announcements during that live stream, you will hear about it from us.

Limited Run has been having a tough time with Nintendo recently, the big N having put them on hold to deal with bigger developers first. Luckily for Limited Run, Nintendo has approved them today to start working on retail versions of their games.
Their first game on Switch, they say, should be rolling out in 2018.

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy currently listed for Switch on Keymailer

Update: The dream is dead, for now anyway. Keymailer’s co-founder says the listing was an error.
Keymailer co-founder here. This was news to me when I saw this thread. I reached out to the management team and apparently this is, sadly, an error on our side. The game was incorrectly tagged when we imported the upcoming releases.
Apologies on behalf of the company for any disappointment on this, as a Switch owner and a fan of Crash Bandicoot, I would have been as excited to play this.
Original: Keymailer is a company that connects YouTube and Twitch content creators to games publishers and developers via review codes. Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is currently listed for the Switch on Keymailer’s site. While this is likely an error, this would not be the first time the Crash Bandicoot series has appeared on Nintendo hardware, and there has been some inconsistent information whether the title would be a Sony exclusive.
Bplus Games asks players to vote on Puzzle Box Maker’s Switch icon

Much has been made about Switch menu game icons over the past few months. Many system owners have voiced their opinions about them – with some vocal players dissatisfied with the way they look. Snake Pass, LEGO Worlds, and SteamWorld Dig 2 are among the titles people have requested to be changed.
To circumvent this issue, developer Bplus Games is taking a proactive approach in asking its followers to participate in a poll to determine which icon will be used for their upcoming Puzzle Box Maker. The four options are viewable in the image above. This seems to be a sensible approach in handling some players’ strong feelings about what an icon should look like.

Shin Megami Tensei 25th anniversary website open
Posted on 1 year ago by Matt(@OnePunchMaz) in General Gaming, News | 5 Comments | 0 Likes
The Shin Megami Tensei series is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, and to start off, Atlus has launched a special website for this occasion. At the moment, there’s pretty much nothing of interest to see on the website – except the logo above, which incorporates the release years of all four mainline Shin Megami Tensei games, alongside the word “next”. This seems to hint at Shin Megami Tensei V being released this year, or at the very least being announced.
Of course, we don’t know yet if this game (or any other potential games planned for this anniversary) will be on Nintendo platforms, but we will keep you updated if that’ll end up being the case.
Dragon Quest attraction coming to Universal Studios Japan
Posted on 1 year ago by Matt(@OnePunchMaz) in General Gaming, News | 0 comments | 0 Likes
Nintendo’s upcoming “Super Nintendo World” theme park at various Universal Studios parks was talked about quite a bit recently. Now, it seems like Super Nintendo World won’t be the only video game-themed attraction at Universal Studios – Square-Enix announced a collaboration with Universal Studios Japan today. To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Dragon Quest, a “Real Battle Attraction” is coming to the Universal Studios park in Osaka. There, visitors will be able to grab weapons, enter dungeons and fight monsters for an authentic Dragon Quest experience.
Further details have not yet been announced so far, like the time frame for this event. The fact that this is a celebration of Dragon Quest’s 30th anniversary seems to suggest that this is a limited-time only event that won’t last very long, but we don’t know for sure yet.
