Namco Museum will support Download Play on Switch with free eShop app
Posted 2 weeks ago by Brian in News, Switch eShop | 2 Comments
When Namco Museum launches, players will be able to download a free app from the eShop. This will allow for Download Play on Switch, specifically for Pac-Man Vs.
If one person has purchased Namco Museum, the other Switch owner won’t need a copy of the game. The second person will only need to download the free app for Download Play. One Switch system is used to play as Pac-Man while the other is for three people to play as the Ghosts.
Pac-Man Vs. can also be played with one Switch system with up to three players. However, with one unit, you’ll be limited to playing as Ghosts.
Nintendo: “unable to comment” on Monster Hunter XX localization, other tidbits
Posted 2 weeks ago by Matt in News, Switch | 34 Comments
The possibility of a localization of the Switch version of Monster Hunter XX has been quite a hot topic lately, starting with some comments made by Capcom around E3 and now the appearance of the Japanese version at Nintendo’s booth at Japan Expo in Paris. Alex “cvxfreak” Aniel was able to speak to a Nintendo representative at the booth, who told him that “We are unable to comment on localization.” So, no news on that front unfortunately, but the rep also said that “Capcom accepted our offer to show the game at Japan Expo.” It seems like Nintendo pushed to show the game at Japan Expo then, and not Capcom. There seems to be some interest from Nintendo at least to show the game to Western audiences, but again, a localization of the game doesn’t seem to be happening at the moment.
Developer: A Plague Tale: Innocence not coming to Switch because of the system’s lack of power
Posted 2 weeks ago by Matt in News, Switch | 50 Comments
Asobo Studio’s A Plague Tale: Innocence will be coming to other home consoles and PC – but not to the Switch. Speaking to GamingBolt, Asobo Studio’s Chief Creative Officer David Dedeine says that this is due to the system’s lack of power:
“No. I will not lie by just saying…power. It’s really the power of the device. In this case it was the amount of rats we need to display. We already know that there’s too many rats, too many animations, too many AI at the same time. And if we want to give justice to – it’s like there is a large bridge between [it and ] Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro. And the Switch, it was too hard to make the same game in such a different context.
We’ve done the math, and had all sorts of discussions with Focus Home Interactive (the publisher). So maybe will try, but right now the discussion we’ve had with the publisher was to not make Switch a priority.”

Sushi Striker might be exclusive to New Nintendo 3DS and New Nintendo 2DS
Posted 2 weeks ago by Matt in 3DS, News | 3 Comments
Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido was one of the surprise games revealed during the Nintendo Treehouse Live segment at E3. Back then, the game was reported to be coming to the “Nintendo 3DS family of systems”, as per the fact sheet released by Nintendo. However, on the game’s page on Nintendo of America’s website, it says that the game is compatible with “New Nintendo 3DS systems only”. On Nintendo of Europe’s various websites, on the other hand, the game is listed as being compatible with all 3DS systems.
Lots of conflicting information around – let’s hope Nintendo clarifies this soon, although there’s still some time on the game’s release in 2018.
