Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia director on the name, wants to remake Binding Blade the most

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, a remake of Fire Emblem Gaiden, takes on a completely new name. In an interview with The Verge, director Kenta Nakanishi explained the change.
Nakanishi told the site:
“Because it wasn’t released outside of Japan, and gaiden means side story, people would think ‘What is the side story for?’ So we thought we’d come up with a new title.”
Nakanishi also commented on the Fire Emblem game he would remake if he had to choose. His selection? Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade, a Japan-exclusive GBA title. Nakanishi said that Roy’s story “has never been told, so it would be great if we could release a remake of his story.”

Switch eShop listing says you’ll be able to try out all ten fighters in ARMS Global Testpunch
Posted 3 days ago by Brian in News, Switch | 14 Comments
What we’ve heard within the past few days indicated that the ARMS Global Testpunch will include seven playable characters. Everyone aside from Kid Cobra, Byte & Barq, and Twintelle were thought to be available. Based on fresh information though, these fighters might be in after all.
The listing clearly states that all ten fighters will be in ARMS Global Testpunch. It also highlights the inclusion of local multiplayer, Hoops mode, and connecting online for exhibition matches.
We should note that this eShop listing isn’t official confirmation. We’ll try to get a response from Nintendo, but we should have a definitive answer soon as ARMS Global Testpunch begins in less than a week.
Blind Rhythm Heaven player sends heartwarming letter to Nintendo, receives reply in braille
Posted 3 days ago by Brian in General Nintendo, News | 13 Comments
Japanese Twitter user kentarock1020 has a son named Hibiki who, very sadly, is completely blind. He’s lacked the ability to see since the age of two due to the rare cancer form retinoblastoma. That naturally makes it difficult to play most video games. However, there’s one Nintendo series he’s managed to not only play, but also excel at.
With the help of his father, Hibiki wrote a letter to Nintendo thanking the company and asking for more Rhythm Heaven (Rhythm Tengoku in Japan) games in the future. The full message is below:
Pokemon GO was a big winner at the 21st Annual Webby Awards. Most significantly, it was selected as best mobile game.
Niantic’s global product marketing lead Archit Bhargava stopped by to accept the award, and delivered a short but sweet speech. He simply stated: “This summer will be legendary.”
Bhargava’s brief comment comes off as a tease for future Pokemon GO plans. Players are still waiting on Legendary Pokemon to appear in the game after all. With Pokemon GO coming up on its first year anniversary, offering these creatures would be a nice way to celebrate the event. Niantic CEO John Hanke also indicated a few months ago that Legendary Pokemon are a part of Niantic’s plan for the game in 2017, which could be happening during the summer.
