Soichiro Morizumi is no longer with Monolith Soft. Morizumi, who directed both Project X Zone games on 3DS, confirmed the news about his resignation on Twitter.
Gematsu has the following translation of his tweets:
“I have resigned from Monolith Soft as of today, March 31. Thank you so much for looking after me for 14 years! I have been able to successfully complete games from Namco x Capcom to Super Robot Taisen OG Saga: Endless Frontier EXCEED to Project X Zone. I’m very grateful to have worked with all of the companies involved. I’m planning to remain in the games industry, so let’s meet again in the next game… someday.”
“And by the way, it was an amicable resignation. As for how amicable, it was as amicable as when I resigned from Banpresto lol. Since I was at Banpresto for seven years, and Monolith Soft for 14 years, is this some sort of cause and effect? If my next one is 21 years, I’ll be of exact retirement age (65 years old).”
Soichiro Morizumi’s work at Bandai Namco was primarily limited to Bandai Namco games. Aside from the Project X Zone series, he contributed to Namco x Capcom and the Super Robot titles as mentioned in his tweets.
PETA weighs in on Milk mini-game in 1-2-Switch, wants it to be more realistic

Earlier this week, Nintendo had a bit of fun with real life farmers by taking on a new challenge with 1-2-Switch’s Milk mini-game. PETA saw this, and has now written a bizarre letter of its own to the big N.
The animal rights organization believes that 1-2-Switch isn’t being realistic in terms of how it portrays cow milking, calling it “far from reality” as the real act may sometimes be more violent. PETA thinks Nintendo should make the experience more authentic and even asks for certain sounds to be added in. If that isn’t possible, the letter suggests that Nintendo should “switch to simulating activities in which no animals suffer.”
Here’s the full letter:

Hyrule Historia, a lengthy book covering historical information on The Legend of Zelda, came out a few years ago. It seems that a more condensed version exists targeting younger fans. Nintendo Force spotted the book – with a new cover and all – at a kindergarten book fair.
Aside from being smaller, it’s unclear how this version of Hyrule Historia differs. It’s also unavailable online.

Nintendo has the following information about the tournament:
“The qualifying round (Turf War) is on April 22 at 11 a.m. PT, but make sure to log in early and click the ‘Check In’ button an hour before tournament time. Once the bracket is seeded, you can set up your qualifying match using Battlefy’s Private Match Chat and then proceed to splat your way to hopeful victory.
