Switch eShop adds section for games on sale
Posted 5 days ago by Brian in News, Switch eShop | 31 Comments
Finding out about the games that have been discounted on the Switch eShop hasn’t been entirely easy. But with a new inclusion on the store, it shouldn’t be as big of an issue going forward.
Today, Nintendo added in a section on the Switch eShop for all of the games currently on sale. Right now it’s somewhat barren, but as more and more games are released, it should fill up quickly.

Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser’s Minions is off to a slow start in Japan. During its first week, the game sold roughly 25,000 copies. Dengeki further adds that it had a sell-through rate of 45 percent.
Dengeki does say that Mario & Luigi games have gone on to sell over 400,000 copies. With that in mind, it’ll be interesting to see how this one does in the long run.

Demon Gaze developer Experience setting its sights on Switch
Posted 5 days ago by Brian in News, Switch | 29 Comments
Experience has never been associated with Nintendo platforms. In the future, however, that will likely be changing. Hajime Chikami, the president of Experience, expressed interest in developing for the console in a brief message posted on Twitter.
Experience might be best known for its work on the dungeon crawling Demon Gaze series. The studio also developed Stranger of Sword City and Operation Abyss: New Tokyo Legacy.
Engine Software has discounted its full slate of games on the North American eShop. For one week only, all titles are down to just $1 (and €1.00 / £0.80).
Gunslugs, Gunslugs 2, Mindfeud, Proun+, and Sumico are included in the sale. There are some pretty decent games here, with Gunslugs being the particular highlights.
The $1 sale will be live until October 19.
Thanks to Jake for the tip.

Detective Pikachu movie expected to start filming in January 2018
Posted 5 days ago by Brian in General Nintendo, News | 9 Comments
A film based on Detective Pikachu was announced last year. The project has gone somewhat dark this year, but it looks like things are about to pick up in just a few months.
Omega Underground spotted a product listing showing that Detective Pikachu will be filming in London, UK on January 15, 2018. A short blurb says that it’s a film involving “a new character and storyline in the Pokemon universe.”
Rob Letterman (Goosebumps, Monsters Vs. Aliens, and Shark Tale) will be directing Detective Pikachu. Nicole Perlman and Alex Hirsch are working on the script.
Square Enix has launched Lost Sphear in Japan. The RPG can be purchased in stores, though a digital version is being distributed as well. It’s a 2.4GB download, in case you’re curious.
Lost Sphear is still a few months out in the west. It’s planned for January 23 in both North America and Europe.

Opportunity to get the Zelda: Breath of the Wild Deluxe Edition guide for free on Amazon
Posted 5 days ago by Brian in General Nintendo, News | 28 Comments
Update (10/15): The Zelda: Breath of the Wild Deluxe Edition guide is temporarily out of stock (you still might be able to place an order), but the offer is still running. You can find a few other books that folks have had success with here. Books like The Art of Fire Emblem Awakening, The Art of Splatoon, and The Legend of Zelda: Art & Artifacts are eligible.
Original (10/14): Amazon is running a new offer on its website that could net you a free copy of the Zelda: Breath of the Wild Deluxe Edition guide. On the listing page, you should see a banner advertising an opportunity to get the book free as well as two others with an Audible trial. Click on that banner (it may require a refresh if you’re not seeing the correct banner) and start the trial (you can cancel pretty much immediately or whenever else you want).
Once you’ve complete the steps, which should only take a minute or two, you should see that the guide will be reduced to 100% off at checkout. Definitely not a bad offer, especially when you can save $50 in the process.
You can try the offer on Amazon here. We’ve only tried this with the Zelda guide, but it should work with at least some other books as well.
