Fire Emblem Warriors’ Fates DLC pack: screenshots and new info, out December 21st
Posted 6 days ago by Matt in New Nintendo 3DS, News, Switch | 5 Comments
Famitsu will cover the first Fire Emblem Warriors DLC pack, which focuses on Fire Emblem Fates, in their magazine this week. They posted a preview of the article on their website, so we have some preliminary info and low-res screenshots.
Most importantly, we know have a concrete release date for the DLC pack – December 21st. As many people suspected, the December 31st date that was listed on the eShop was just a placeholder. Other than the new playable characters Azura, Oboro and Niles, five new costumes will also be added: Azura’s black dancer outfit, Maid Camilla, Butler Takumi, Hoshido Noble for female Corrin and Nohr Noble for male Corrin. Thanks to a screenshot released by Famitsu, we also know that Azura will have a support conversation with Corrin.
We should have some more info once we get our hands on the full issue of the magazine tomorrow.

Posted 6 days ago by Brian in Mobile, News | 0 comments
A variety of games were nominated for Google Play’s Best of 2017 award in Japan. The winner has been revealed, and Fire Emblem Heroes came away as the winner.
Google specifically chose Fire Emblem Heroes for the award. However, it did not make the top five for the user voted category.
It’s also worth noting that Magikarp Jump won for “Cute & Casual”.
A presentation was held in China today for the NVIDIA Shield. You wouldn’t expect Nintendo news to come out of such an event, but it seems as though a pretty big announcement was made.
The new Chinese version of NVIDIA Shield is capable of running Wii games. Site reader pdapandapda tells us that the graphics will be optimized, but we’re trying to get confirmation on that. If true, perhaps the Wii titles will run at more suitable HD resolutions.

Posted 6 days ago by Brian in News, Switch | 22 Comments
Following the reveal of Mega Man 11, Capcom put out an official press release for the game. Included in that was a tease of “a variety of difficulty options.”
The official Japanese website for Mega Man has more information about this. Four difficultly levels are included: “Newcomer Mode”, “Casual Mode”, “Normal Mode”, and “Expert Mode”. It goes without saying, but the difficulty should increase as you go up the scale, with “Expert Mode” providing the toughest challenge.
Also coming from the site, we have our first glimpse of Mega Man 11’s Robot Masters. They’re shown via silhouettes in the image below.
