3DS

This summer, Capcom is introducing a big update for Monster Hunter Stories in Japan. It’ll add new Otomon, character customization options, and more. Capcom has a trailer out for the update, which we’ve posted below.

The Alliance Alive is FuRyu’s next 3DS RPG following The Legend of Legacy. In this week’s Famitsu, it’s explained how the two games differ.

World Setting

In The Legend of Legacy, the game takes place entirely on one island named Avalon, which only has one city known as Initium. Dungeons are scattered all over the island, and the objective is to find relics of the gods.

However, with The Alliance Alive, an entire human world is split into numerous zones, each of which has unique developments with the demon clan ruling over humans. When the nine protagonists from the separated zones gather, it will mark the beginning of an adventure to unveil the world’s hidden mystery.

Nintendo gave Ever Oasis a June 23 release date during its most recent Nintendo Direct. With the action RPG just a couple of months away, a North American teaser site is open. Access it here.

Aside from a trailer and screenshots, the page also has a fact sheet providing a general overview. We’ve attached the full thing below.

Capcom recently dished out new DLC for its Japanese 3DS game Monster Hunter XX. In partnership with Nintendo, special content based on Zelda: Breath of the Wild was released. A couple of videos showing off the DLC can be found below.

Nintendo put up another new Ever Oasis blog this week, led by director Koichi Ishii. Ishii went in-depth about how the world of Vistrahda was made.

Each time Ishii creates a new game, he always starts by coming up with the world setting. He draws the world map while considering various points like:

– Is the world a planet?
– What are the chemical elements that compose the planet?
– How do the climate and regions form based on those elements?
– What kinds of creatures live there?
– Are there humans and sub-human races?
– How do those humanoids live there?
– What are the personalities and traits of each race?
– What kind of tools are being used?
– What kind of things change with the passing of time?

Square Enix has high hopes for Dragon Quest XI. When Square Enix delivered its latest financial results earlier in the week, CFO Kazuharu Watanabe mentioned that the company is looking to achieve sales of five million copies.

Kazuharu’s comment did not refer to one specific version of the game. Dragon Quest XI will be on 3DS and PlayStation 4, and eventually Switch as well. Kazuharu also did not say if the sales target only applies to Japan, though it may be unlikely for the RPG to head overseas within the next fiscal year.

Dragon Quest IX was the last big seller in the franchise at 4.3 million. However, when counting sales in the west, that amount is closer to 5.3 million.

Even if Dragon Quest XI sells more than IX, it might be difficult for it to surpass the DS game in terms of pure profit. After all XI has different versions involved and its scope is much larger.

The latest live stream for the Fire Emblem 0 (Cipher) trading card game was held today. Arguably the biggest piece of news was the announcement of series 11. The Sacred Stones will finally be featured in addition to Fire Emblem Warriors. More cards from Shadows of Valentia will be included, too.

Also during the live stream, fans were treated to a sneak peek of sorts for the Fire Emblem 0 collaboration DLC in Shadows of Valentia. In-game models for Shade, Emma, Yuzu, and Yuzu were shown.

Kirie from Serenes Forest captured a ton of different images from the live stream, posted below. Along with what we already mentioned, there was talk and cards shown for series 10 and more.
