This week’s issue of Famitsu features an interview with Senran Kagura series producer Kenichiro Takaki. In it, Takai talks a bit about Shinobi Refle: Senran Kagura, which was announced for Switch last week.

Here’s a recap of what Takai shared with Famitsu, courtesy of Gematsu:

– HD Rumble is a particularly fascinating feature of Nintendo Switch
– I expect that we’ll be able to do various things that we couldn’t do with the rumble function before
– As for what kind of things we’ll be able to do in Shinobi Refle using HD rumble, right now I’ll leave that to your imagination
– We’re basically aiming for a pure and wholesome Senran Kagura, and our main objective is to convey the feelings of the characters through HD rumble
– The story will be charmingly stupid
– You’ll be able to enjoy a different story than before
– As an affordably priced, download-only game, this is a concept title based on HD Rumble
– Asuka will be the only character to appear
– Asuka’s graphics are being rebuilt from the ground up
– I want to beautifully express the portrayal of light despite its anime style
– We’re considering making use of Switch features other than HD rumble
– Switch is considerably easy to develop for
– Other titles being considered that use Switch’s features


Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star was revealed for Switch last week. In Japan, Marvelous is preparing a special version of the game.

A first look at the Japanese Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star Limited Box was provided on the game’s official website today. In addition to a copy of the game, a special box designed by Aruko Wada and travel pouch are included.


Over on Amazon Japan, the official boxart is posted for Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star. Have a look at the packaging image above.


GameSpot has shared a few more minutes of footage from Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns, posted below. We get a look at some of the townfolks you meet and how to start your first garden.

Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns is out today in North America. You can view the official launch trailer below.

XSEED hosted a Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns stream last night, and showed a ton of footage from the game. The Twitch recording with over an hour of gameplay is after the break.

XSEED brought up a problematic situation the company was facing with Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns’ DLC last week. Essentially, in order to localize the new content for the west, they’d need to charge for it due to the huge amount of work involved as opposed to releasing it free like in Japan.

The community has spoken and XSEED has decided on which direction to take. Due to feedback received, Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns’ DLC will be localized.

XSEED wrote in a Tumblr blog post:

“We were really overwhelmed by the feedback we received from it. The patience and support of those who responded was encouraging to say the least, and we were grateful to hear all of your opinions, however you felt about the situation. One issue that came up on our forums that I’d like to address quickly is about the bug fixes that were included in the post-launch patches in Japan. Those fixes are all already included in the core game that we are releasing on February 28.

Now then, on to the big news: I’m happy to report that we have decided to localize and release the DLC in North America. I don’t have information on a release timeline or costs for you yet, but we’re eager to dive into translating and editing the text for this massive update. Stay tuned for updates in the months after the initial release.

Thanks again for all your feedback. It made our decision much easier. While the DLC is a ways off, until then we hope you enjoy Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns. Even without the post-launch DLC, it is still the biggest game in the storied history of the farm/life-sim series.”

Thanks to Blackbishop for the tip.
