The Snack World details

Posted on 2 weeks ago by (@NE_Brian) in 3DS, News | 9 Comments | 0 Likes

Level-5 first announced The Snack World back in 2015. During this week’s Nintendo Direct, it was finally given a Japanese release date of July 13. More details about the game are shared on the official website.

The basic gist of The Snack World is to find rare items slumbering deep inside dungeons. The protagonist is the player’s avatar whose looks can be customized.

This game will have an original scenario that’s different from the anime. However, anime characters like Chap, Mayone, and Peperon will also appear.

Update (4/14): The Ho-Oh will be distributed in Japan via a serial code in the August issue of CoroCoro, which is out on July 15. More details will be shared in the future.


Original (4/13): The newest issue of CoroCoro magazine has started to leak, and it has revealed a new distribution coming to Pokemon Sun & Moon. Ho-Oh will be distributed in Japan later this year. Further details aren’t available at this point. It’s possible that this will be tied to the upcoming Pokemon movie in Summer in which Ho-Oh plays a major role, though we don’t know for sure yet.

After previously announcing that services for Dragon Quest X on Wii will be discontinued soon, Square Enix has now announced that owners of the Wii version of Dragon Quest X will have access to a free upgrade to the Switch version of the game.

When Dragon Quest X is upgraded to version 4.0  sometime this fall, services for the Wii version (not Wii U) of the title will be discontinued. While unfortunate news, Square Enix has stated that they’ll provide every registered Dragon Quest X player on Wii with a download code for the Switch version of the title.

Those who prefer a physical copy will still have to purchase the title themselves, but this undoubtedly will please some of the Dragon Quest X players who still played on the Wii version.

Square Enix said more details about the upgrade program will be provided in the future.

Last month, Nintendo opened up Zelda and Mario portals on its Japanese website, which serve as information hubs for these two franchises and its characters. Today, the Mario portal was updated because of the impending release of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on Switch.

The character portal was updated to include Daisy, Yoshi, Wario and Waluigi. You can read brief descriptions of them there and listen to some voice clips. Much more impressive is the Mario Kart retrospective that was added to the portal. It lists every title released so far in the Mario Kart franchise and you can listen to some music clips while looking at screenshots and artwork from each game.

Thumper was one of the games that was confirmed for the Switch at the Nintendo Switch Nindies Showcase in February. Since then, we haven’t heard much about it. Curiously, the game was actually shown off during the latest Nintendo Direct – but only in the Japanese version, despite the game being developed by a Western studio. It seems like NoE and NoA wanted less of a focus on indie games in their respective Directs.

The Japanese Direct revealed that Thumper will launch in May in Japan. We don’t know its European or North American release date yet, but thankfully, it’s easy to access the eShops of other regions on the Switch.
