A little while back, Famitsu published an interview with Nintendo’s Shinya Takahashi and Yoshiaki Koizumi all about Switch in one of its issues. It was extremely extensive, covering the system’s origins and early development (including some involvement from Satoru Iwata). The two developers also touched on numerous other topics such as going with a single screen, choosing the name out of thousands, tying in smartphone usage to online play and making it paid, system updates, VR, and why the January event was held in Japan. Again, there is a lot here.

We’ve now readied a pretty complete translation of the interview. Continue on below for the extensive discussion featuring Takahashi and Koizumi.

The SNES landed on the market over 26 years ago. Since then, many new gaming platforms have passed on by. But now the SNES is seeing new life with Unholy Night: The Darkness Hunter – an entirely new release on the system this year.

Unholy Night: The Darkness Hunter is a 3D fighter made by former SNK staffers. It’s packed with Story, Versus, Survival, and Practice Modes. Up to two players are supported.

Unholy Night: The Darkness Hunter is up for pre-order on Amazon here. It’s listed with a June 19 release date. We’re not sure if it’s temporary, but the title should be out this year.

Q-Games founder Dylan Cuthbert conducted a new Reddit AMA today. As a Star Fox developer who has played an influential role in the Star Fox series, he had plenty to say about the franchise. He spoke about an old-school re-make pitched to Nintendo, working on Star Fox Command (and its endings), and his own personal ideas for a new game. Cuthbert also weighed in on Switch, Nintendo’s Game Boy title for “X” and why it never left Japan, and more.

We’ve collected a number of important responses from the Reddit AMA below. You can read the full thing right here.

Yasunori Mitsuda is the lead composer on Xenoblade Chronicles 2. On his personal Facebook page this week, he provided a status update on the music.

Recording for Xenoblade Chronicles 2’s music appears to be pretty much complete. It was worked on by 150 people (note: in case this isn’t clear, this is just the musicians), the largest production Mitsuda has been involved with. The mixing process for music began this week.

Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses has been ongoing for several years, but the concern never really had a true CD. Fans won’t have to hold out much longer though.

In an interview with Attack of the Fanboy, show producer Jason Michael Paul confirmed that news is coming “soon.” Pre-orders will be taking place on the official website.

When official details about the CD are announced, we’ll let you know.

We’ve already heard that Switch is receiving huge attention from Square Enix this year. Additionally, CEO Yosuke Matsuda informed Nikkei that the company is considering previously-released titles for the platform. “We’re even thinking about what feasible existing game titles we want to successively port [onto the Switch],” he said.

Any and all titles may be up for consideration here. Seiken Densetsu Collection is coming to Switch in Japan soon, which features games that came out many years ago. On the other hand, Square Enix brought Dragon Quest Heroes I-II out for Switch’s Japanese launch last month, which had titles that were made within the past couple of years.
