Inazuma Eleven Ares was announced during the Level-5 Vision event last year. Since then, we haven’t seen too much of the project. Level-5 has been hosting semi-regular Inazuma Walker live streams, but we really haven’t seen much, especially when it comes to the upcoming game.
Level-5 did host another live stream earlier today. The big news is that the anime has been pushed back to Spring 2018. Originally, it was planned for this summer before being officially announced for October.
Level-5 CEO Akihiro Hino also briefly talked about the Inazuma Eleven Ares game towards the end of the stream. In an exchange with the show’s MC, Hino seemed to hint that it will be on the Switch.
Here’s the basic exchange between the two:
Fire Emblem devs on how the “Battle of Revolution” April Fools’ Day joke came to be
Posted 4 days ago by Brian in General Nintendo, News | 9 Comments | 0 Likes
Earlier this week, we made note of an interview Nintendo Dream conducted this summer with the developers of Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. In the same interview, Nintendo and Intelligent Systems talked about the “Battle of Revolution” April Fools’ Day joke that took place earlier this year.
It was kind of surprising to see Nintendo go all out with fabricating a game like that. A site was set up, and various images and details were created just for the joke. Basically, Battle of Revolution was imagined as a NES-style game set in the late Edo period of Japan.
Nintendo’s Hitoshi Yamagami and Kenta Nakanishi as well as Intelligent Systems’ Toshiyuki Kusakihara and Masahiro Higuchi discussed Battle of Revolution and how it came to be. It’s an interesting read, with the excerpt posted below. You can also read the full interview on Kantopia.

Pokemon Gold & Silver VC release getting packaged versions in Europe
Posted 5 days ago by Matt in 3DS, News | 13 Comments | 0 Likes
The 3DS Virtual Console releases of Pokemon Gold and Pokemon Silver are fast approaching – they will be available to download on September 22. Additionally, Nintendo of Europe announced today that special packaged versions of the games will also be available to purchase in stores on the same day. Naturally they won’t contain a cartridge of the games, but instead just a download. Still, it’s definitely a nice collector’s item.
So far, this has only been confirmed for Europe, but we’d be surprised if Japan and North America weren’t getting boxed releases as well.
