Despite Switch’s success, The Legend of Heroes and Ys developer Falcom isn’t quite ready to commit to Switch. Speaking with MCV, as published in one of the magazine’s latest issues, president Toshihiro Kondo indicated that the company is adopting more of a wait-and-see approach. 

Kondo explained that “there’s still no positive guarantee that the fan base that would play Falcom games are on the Switch yet.”

Gurumin 3D is only available on the eShop at the moment. If a new Kickstarter campaign goes well, however, the game could see a physical release.

Mastiff is preparing a Kickstarter campaign for physical versions of Kickstarter. The company is planning all sorts of tiers and rewards, ranging from $1 (access to updates) all the way up to $500 with a digital 3DS key, physical PC copy, t-shirt, button and sticker set, and more.

As for a physical 3DS edition, it will be included as a stretch goal. There’s no word yet on the initial funding target or the 3DS goal. More details should be shared in the near future.

You may know Falcom for its work on the The Legend of Heroes series. The company has also worked on the long running Ys franchise. While Falcom hasn’t done too much with Nintendo platforms and they aren’t exactly running to Switch, they are keeping an open mind when it comes to supporting the platform.

Falcom president Toshiro Kondo mentioned to USgamer that Switch is an “extremely Nintendo-like” platform. He also noted that the team isn’t working on any games for the system currently, but added: “Should someone on staff bring up an interesting idea or something, we’d be more than happy to entertain it and develop a game for Switch.”

Kondo was also asked if Switch can fill the gap left by the PlayStation Vita. He had this to say:

“I guess you’d say genre of games in Japan called Otome games which are games made for girls and right now they’re heavily concentrated on the Vita. Should those games not go to Switch, then there’s really no reason for their fans to purchase it.”


Way back when Gurumin: A Monstrous Adventure came out on PSP many years ago, it did see a physical release. But for the game’s latest versions (including 3DS), it was only made available digitally.

Mastiff could be changing this in the future. On Twitter, the publisher is gauging interest in a Kickstarter campaign that would feature a physical 3DS version as a stretch goal. If you’re interested, be sure to let the company know.


If you have a 3DS, you can pick up Gurumin 3D: A Monstrous Adventure from the eShop. The game is out now in both North America and Europe. Keep in mind that the game takes up 3,794 blocks, or 474.25 MB.

Gurumin 3D: A Monstrous Adventure is out today, and Mastiff is celebrating with a new extended launch trailer. Watch it below.
