Koei Tecmo is bringing Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII with Power-Up Kit to Switch in Japan on March 30. Before that though, another game will be released at the console’s launch. That one is Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence with Power-Up Kit.

For the Switch edition, Koei Tecmo is packing in some original elements, such as new additions to the story. All DLC will also be included on the cartridge. And just like Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII the motion IR camera in the Joy-Con controller is used to create warlords based on things such as the target’s form and feel.

Some screenshots from Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence with Power-Up Kit can be found below.

Nintendo opened the full Japanese Goodbye! BoxBoy! website today. New details about the game are shared, and we have news about how amiibo works.

Qbby and the rest of the gang who are riding the Box Ship are saving planets eroded by haze to restore the universe to its original form. With the ship, they head to a planet infested by haze, but Qbby ends up falling down to one planet in particular. The game picks up here.

As far as gameplay goes, first let’s go over the different powers:

Square Enix is back with another news update on Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 3 Professional. Today, the company shared new information and screenshots pertaining to the Super Life Fusion Modified feature and new monsters debuting in the game.

Here’s the roundup, courtesy of Gematsu:

Super Life Fusion Modified

– Feature debuted in Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 3
– In this version, it has been enhanced to allow monsters to unleash more power than ever before
– It’s called Super Life Fusion Modified
– he greatest feature of this fusion is that the monsters born through it can reach a maximum level of 120
– With things like the skills it’s able to learn increased, it’s no exaggeration to say that it is the strongest method of fusion
– As you progress through the story, Super Life Fusion will evolve into Super Life Fusion Modified
– The modified fusion sees the rise of various capabilities
– The maximum cost to learn special traits rises, which will increase your variety of tactics as well


– Darck: monster famously known as a collector; grasps its shining jewel tightly when you ride it
– AsuraZoma: serious Zoma who has mastered the power of darkness; triumphs in both physical attacks and magic
– Semergias: monster famously known as the most evil and a god of battle; unleashes strong physical attacks using the weapons in both of its hands
– LordDraco: dragon beside himself in anger; brutal dragon who packs a punch when you ride it
– Baboon beast: four-eyed monster with the personality of a king drifting about him; never separated from his throne

Famitsu’s final issue of 2016 features another big report on The Alliance Alive. This week’s information batch covers various aspects about the game, including weapons, magic, and plenty more.

Our translation of Famitsu’s report is as follows:

The Ark Ship Brionac

The only ark ship in this universe that can go through the Black Current to travel between worlds. Created by an unknown civilization, many features are included. This will become the player’s moving base after it’s obtained, allowing for destinations to be chosen as well as form the party. Famitsu notes that Brionac’s bridge looks like a shrine, and each character will have their own personal room.

Square Enix is sharing another round of information about Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 3 Professional today. With the latest news, details focus on activities that can be done by player’s partner Nochorin.

There are three new things that the players can request of Nochorin:

1. Want to take a shortcut: Nochorin will allow players to skip parts of the story – either to the following story section or at the next boss; useful for those who have already played the original Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 3.
2. Want to scout: Nochorin will scout monsters in player’s stead. It may fail when trying to scout strong monsters, but you can keep giving these requests at any time. There may be also monsters that can only be scouted by Nochorin.
3. Want to pick up items: Nochorin can also pick up items required by players. Depending on its mood, it may obtain a number of items in one go.

Another new feature is Ride Combine, which combines two monsters – one ridden by the player and one ridden by Nochorin – into a single stronger monster. However, it only seems to be available during battles. When combined, the player’s monster will become bigger and more powerful. There are also special skills and abilities that are exclusive to Ride Combine.

Examples of these skills include:

– Toumabakuenzan (Fighting Demon Explosive Fire Slash): engulfs the surrounding area in an explosive fire; the lower the user’s HP, the more damage will be dealt
– God’s Judgment: Drops fierce thunder from above, and deal enormous physical damage to all enemies

And a couple of examples for abilities:

– Dragon Killer: Self-explanatory; greatly raises damage against dragons
– Item Extreme Up: Extremely raises chances of enemies dropping items

Screenshots for today’s coverage are in the gallery below.
