GamesRadar recently caught up for an interview with Suda51 for all things Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes. Although there was talk about the upcoming Switch game, Suda51 took some time to reflect on the series as a whole.

One noteworthy part of the discussion came about while Suda51 commented on No More Heroes being accepted in the west compared to Japan. He said that there has “definitely” been a “much more positive reaction” in North America and Europe. Although the reaction in Japan hasn’t been particularly bad, it perhaps hasn’t been as warmly received due to its violent nature and blood.

Suda51 said:

Nintendo added several posts to its Japanese blog this week to highlight games featured in the new Nintendo Direct. Xenoblade Chronicles 2 was among them.

Towards the end of the Xenoblade Chronicles 2 post, director Tetsuya Takahashi left a message. In it, he talks about how the team is working on bug fixes and final adjustments. Takahashi also mentioned that Xenoblade Chronicles 2 has an “enormous amount of quests and in-game content”. There’s also much more to come than what’s been shown, and different areas / situations will have unique battle themes.

Here’s the full message, courtesy of CAAAAAAAAAAAW:

Nintendo Australia sat down with a Ubisoft representative to talk in-depth about the collaborative nature of Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. Check out the full video below.

With just a short while to go before FIFA 18’s launch, EA Sports has updated the official boxart. It’s reflected on the official site, and is beginning to appear at retailers as well.

Below was the original boxart for comparison:

Which do you prefer? The new seems slightly less boring at least!

Another Nintendo Direct is in the books. Setting aside Nintendo’s E3 presentation and game-specific broadcasts, it’s been quite awhile since the last one.

There ended up being a ton of news in this week’s Nintendo Direct. Four games in particular were highlighted: Pokemon Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 (now with a December 1 release date), Project Octopath Traveler (with an eShop demo), and Super Mario Odyssey. A few announcements were made as well, including the surprising Doom and Wolfenstein II Switch ports, the first Dragon Quest Builders for Switch, arcade games from Nintendo and Hamster, Kirby Battle Royale and Mario Party: The Top 100 for 3DS, Minecraft: New 3DS Edition, and Atlus localizing The Alliance Alive. Other news was also shared like the November 17 Skyrim release date and more.

So how’s everyone feeling about the Nintendo Direct? Although Nintendo didn’t have much in the way of brand new Switch games, many games were shown. Did the presentation meet your expectations, or were you disappointed in any way? Share your thoughts with us below.

Highlights from last week’s topic: Digital vs. physical

Back in July, we heard that Switch has an internal built-in emulator. Additional information surfaced about the situation today.

What was originally known a couple of months ago is that the emulator came with the name “flog”. That’s no ordinary name. “Flog” is actually “Golf”… just backwards. All Switch systems have Golf from the NES hidden away, and believe it or not, it comes with two-player Joy-Con support.

The discovery itself is extremely interesting. But aside from that, what’s up with the pictures of the Joy-Con controllers? Some are also speculating that there’s hidden way to launch Golf from the Switch menu, but no one has a solution at present.

Square Enix first announced Project Octopath Traveler way back in January. The game went completely dark – until this week, that is. Project Octopath Traveler was heavily featured in the latest Nintendo Direct, and was even given a meaty demo on the eShop.

In case you’re wondering, Laura Post is the voice of Primrose. Post confirmed her role on Twitter a couple of days ago, writing:


Post has worked on a few games in the past, including the Hyperdimension Neptunia series. She has been involved with several anime productions as well.

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 for Switch sold quite well in its first week in Japan. Between September 7 and September 10, it sold about 24,000 copies.

Dengeki adds that Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 sold through 80 percent of its initial shipment. Indeed, that’s a high percentage. Bandai Namco previously said that the game was selling out in the country and more shipments will be carried out later in the month. The sell-through rate tells us that 30,000 copies were sent to stores for the initial batch.

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 will be out this coming week in North America and Europe. It’ll be interesting to see how the game does in the west.

Last night, a returning map from the original Splatoon was added to Splatoon 2: Kelp Dome. If you’re interested in seeing how the stage compares to how it appeared originally, watch the comparison below.
