Some new screenshots for Attack on Titan: Escape from Certain Death have popped up. These showcase various scenes of character interaction and dialogue between the members of the Survey Corps, as well as the new “Battle Act” system. This is essentially a series of quicktime events that occur when you encounter a Titan – pressing the right buttons within the time limit is necessary in order to escape unharmed, or even defeat the Titan.

Koei Tecmo released two trailers for their upcoming Switch games today: Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence with Power-Up Kit and Romance of the Three Kingdoms 13; give them a watch:

Nobunaga’s Ambition will be released released on March 3rd and Romance of the Three Kingdoms on March 30th in Japan.

Nintendo has shared an extended gameplay trailer for Fire Emblem Warriors. We’ve included it below.

Fire Emblem Warriors isn’t just a Switch game. Today, Nintendo announced that a New 3DS version is in the works. The game launches this fall.

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.

Koei Tecmo has various 3DS themes lined up to promote Attack on Titan: Escape from Certain Death. The latest one, pictured above, is a pre-order bonus.

We also have a pair of short videos below showing the Eren and Levi 3DS themes. For Levi, you’ll need to purchase the Treasure Box in order to gain access.

Koei Tecmo could be collaborating with Nintendo on another Warriors game for Switch, if the latest speculation is to be believed.

On Wii U, the two companies worked together to bring Hyrule Warriors to Wii U. The game was then ported to 3DS last year as Hyrule Warriors Legends.

YouTuber OBE1plays first claimed that Koei Tecmo is developing a new Nintendo-themed Warriors game for Switch. Apparently, the project is not a retread of Zelda, nor is it based on Star Fox. Laura Kate Dale, who has been posting Switch rumors over the past few months (many of which have proven accurate thus far), wrote last month that Koei Tecmo pitched a Star Fox Warriors title at some point, but Nintendo turned it down.

Following OBE1plays’ report, Dale wrote on Twitter that she’s heard similar things about Koei Tecmo’s Switch game. She as well says it isn’t related to Zelda or Star Fox.

Koei Tecmo is including two 3DS themes for pre-orders of the Attack on Titan: Escape from Certain Death Treasure Box Edition. We now have a look at one of them below.

Koei Tecmo prepared a new set of Attack on Titan: Escape from Certain Death screenshots and details today. This time around, we’re able to learn more about the different gameplay systems. The images also show event scenes. We have the full roundup below, courtesy of Gematsu.

Break Time

– Speak with your partner when it’s safe and titans aren’t around
– Choose what you want to talk about from the range of “topics” you procured during your exploration
– When you enter Break Time and have strong bonds with your partner, you may talk about private things that you wouldn’t normally talk about
– Your partner may come off as cold depending on the player’s choices

Despair

– Your “Despair” rises if you encounter a critical situation or make the wrong choices,
– If your level of Despair rises, you won’t be able to make normal decisions

Time Limit Choices

– Serious situations may limit the amount of time you have to make a choice
– Whether you’re able to make the right choice in a tense situation will be the key to your escape

Tool Screen

– Use this screen to check the tools you found during your exploration
– Find something useful for your escape through careful exploration

Return Alive from Despair with your Partner

– Mikasa appears when you’re in the despair that is the threat of an approaching titan
– Using the blades in her hands, she accurately slices the nape of the titan
– In order to rescue you from the point of death, Hanji implements certain strategies
– When you’re tired from fighting titans, and have come to the point where you’re soaked in their blood and drool, Levi will offer a shoulder to lean on
– It is this moment where the distance between them becomes much closer
– Even in an ominous old castle, Mikasa always appears calm
– Other than escaping, she also seems to be looking for Eren
– Hanji gets strangely excited about titans
– A desperate situation could be the ideal chance for Hanji to meet a titan

Believe it or not, LetsPlayVideoGames isn’t finished with its Nintendo rumors for the day. This time around, the site shares some information about an unconfirmed pitch from Koei Tecmo.

The Japanese company, who previously worked on Hyrule Warriors (and Legends), allegedly made a pitch for a Star Fox-themed Warriors title. Melee combat would have been the focus with some space dogfighting segments mixed in. Motion controls would have been absent, “focused on alternating missions between ground combat and a simplified space combat system designed to be simple to control and visually over the top.” It would have been comparable to Hyrule Warriors in many ways.

Nintendo is said to have turned down the pitch “due to questions regarding the future of the brand.” It never left the design stage, and it’s unknown which system it was targeted for.

Despite the Star Fox pitch not progressing, Koei Tecmo remains interested in giving another Nintendo franchise the Warriors treatment. Additionally, Nintendo is apparently open to that as well.
