Black The Fall heading to Switch
Posted on 2 weeks ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop | 1 Comment | 0 Likes
Black The Fall is coming to Switch. Rather than having the news revealed through an official announcement or an eShop listing, we’ve actually found out about it through the system’s news feature. The game now has a channel of its own, though no posts have been made just yet.
Black The Fall is a puzzle-platform game that released earlier this year, and some have compared it to Inside – another game planned for Switch. Square Enix published the title and supported it through its Square Enix Collective program.
We have additional details about Black The Fall below, along with a trailer.

Lost Sphear not a Square Enix store exclusive in Europe
Posted on 2 weeks ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 2 Comments | 0 Likes
Unlike I Am Setsuna, Lost Sphear will be sold physically in North America and Europe. There was a catch when Square Enix announced the game, however. It seemed as though the physical version would be exclusive to the company’s store. Or so we thought.
We started to notice this last week, but it looks like Lost Sphear will be sold on Amazon in Europe. We first spotted a listing on Amazon UK. Amazon Germany and Amazon France have listings now as well.
As for North America, well… we might be out of luck there. So far there aren’t any signs of Lost Sphear being available anywhere else other than Square Enix’s online store. But if you absolutely don’t want to deal with that site, importing from Amazon’s European outlets should be an option.
Final Fantasy XIV director still interested in a Switch version, “positive discussions” taking place
Posted on 3 weeks ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 63 Comments | 0 Likes
The possibility of Final Fantasy XIV on Switch is something we’ve heard about for awhile now. Director Naoki Yoshida first mentioned the interest there back in 2015 when Nintendo’s console was still known as NX. He’s reiterated that interest a few different times throughout 2017.
Fortunately, nothing has changed. Yoshida still wants to make Final Fantasy XIV happen on Switch since they want to reach as many people as possible, and apparently “positive discussions” are taking place. The only requirement he has is for everyone to play in the same world.

Nintendo seems to be publishing Dragon Quest Builders on Switch in the west
Posted on 1 month ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 29 Comments | 0 Likes
Square Enix has not one, but two Dragon Quest Builders game coming to Switch. The sequel was actually announced before the first game for Nintendo’s console. And then during the latest Nintendo Direct, the original Dragon Quest Builders was confirmed for all regions on Switch.
Interestingly, it seems as though Nintendo will be publishing the game in the west. No one seems to have really picked up on it or at least discussed it, but Dragon Quest Builders is listed with various other first-party releases for Switch in the company’s latest release schedule. Square Enix might be handling it in Japan, but at least overseas, it looks like Nintendo is publishing.
Thanks to Jake for the tip.
