Update 2: The Spring Man-esque character will intrude in Grand Prix if you are fighting through with good results in higher than level 4 difficulty. Here are some screenshots:
Update: Full patch notes added below. Along with badges and recent replays, Nintendo also says that there is “an interloper who has been disrupting the Grand Prix, going after our fiercest competitors.” Issues fixed, and adjustments made to fighters and ARMS as well.
Original: ARMS’ latest update has gone live. Nintendo has started distribution of version 3.2.0 around the world.
We don’t have the full patch notes just yet, but this update should be fairly substantial. Badges have been added as well as a replay list. Nintendo also previously teased some sort of character who looks a lot like Spring Man.
Stay tuned for further details.

It’s been a rather murky road when it comes to Fire Emblem Warriors and dual audio. We’ve never been able to get a clear cut answer straight from Nintendo about the situation – until today that is.
The North American launch trailer for Fire Emblem Warriors reveals that Nintendo will be putting out a free downloadable Japanese voice-pack at launch. This tells us that you should be able to play the game with Japanese voices if you’d like. So the choice is there – play with the dubbed, English cast or the Japanese voices.

[Review] Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth

Release date: October 17, 2017
Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth makes its numbered return since Legends of the Titan released back in 2013 for North American 3DS owners and brings with it a fresh new outlook while retaining the series’ staple of creating your own characters and telling yet another story of Yggdrasil, for better or for worse. While I’m a firm believer that Etrian Odyssey is one of the best dungeon RPGs around, if not the one currently leading the pack, Etrian Odyssey V also reminds me that while the classic mode is perfectly fine, the lack of any significant story makes for an overall grindy and unrewarding experience that doesn’t have exciting enough gameplay to make up for it.
ARMS version 3.2 will release tomorrow, Nintendo has confirmed. The news was just posted on the game’s Japanese Twitter account.
The new ARMS update adds badges, a replay list feature, and more. Nintendo also teased a character who looks a lot like Spring Man, but hasn’t elaborated further.

NES Classic Edition didn’t originally have boxarts on the menu
Posted 1 week ago by Brian in General Nintendo, News | 5 Comments | 0 Likes
Last week, Famitsu published the first entry in its series of interviews with Nintendo about the NES Classic Edition / Famicom Mini (and SNES Classic Edition / Super Famicom Mini). The second section was put online a few days ago. Just like the previous entry, some interesting tidbits were shared.
Similar to what was said in the last interview, Nintendo again noted that very few staff believed that NES Classic Edition / Famicom Mini would be a hit initially. Since Switch wasn’t too far down the road, most staff at the company weren’t really paying attention to the classic hardware. However, Yamato – a former developer and now a manager of the sales department – said that it would make fans happy. He also strongly suggested to make a TV commercial. But since the product itself was met with stock shortages, they could barely air ads.
