Square Enix on why the Secret of Mana remake isn’t planned for Switch
Posted on 1 week ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 101 Comments | 0 Likes
Square Enix’s new Secret of Mana remake isn’t currently planned for Switch. That’s somewhat surprising given the company’s support of the console thus far. We also can’t forget that Seiken Densetsu Collection also came out in Japan earlier this year.
Redbull recently spoke with producer Masaru Oyamada, and managed to ask why the remake isn’t in the works for Switch. His answer was fairly sound, in which it was explained that development started before Switch was announced. Though Square Enix can’t immediately say that the game will be on Switch, the company would like “to continue listening to the various requests from our fans.”
25 minutes of Lost Sphear Switch footage
GameSpot posted a new video of Lost Sphear on Switch with over 25 minutes of gameplay. The footage, posted below, focuses on dungeon crawling.
Nintendo UK removes mention of Spring 2018 launch for Project Octopath Traveler
Posted on 1 week ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 21 Comments | 0 Likes
After several months of silence, Project Octopath Traveler reappeared during the latest Nintendo Direct. It was one of the big games Nintendo ended up showcasing during the showcase. Even better, a demo was released shortly after the presentation.
The only official release window for Project Octopath Traveler is 2018. However, in a Nintendo UK post, the RPG was recently listed for the more specific Spring 2018.
Fast forward a couple of weeks later, and that mention is now gone. Nintendo UK wiped “Spring 2018” off of its site completely. In its place is the vague 2018 window. Was it a mistake, or did Nintendo say something it wasn’t supposed to?
Dragon Quest XI for Switch seemingly built with Unreal Engine 4, likely based on the PS4 version

Ever since Dragon Quest XI was confirmed for Switch – which was quite a long time ago at this point – we’ve been wondering what sort of game it would be. Many had assumed that it would be based on the PlayStation 4 version, but Square Enix never actually came out with any sort of official word on that front. In fact, we’ve heard almost nothing about the Switch release.
The Unreal Fest East 2017 taking place in Japan today finally offers some notable information. Dragon Quest series creator Yuji Horii was in attendance, and strongly suggested that the Switch version will be based on the PlayStation 4 edition.
