Famitsu has published their online preview of the recently announced Shin Megami Tensei: Deep Strange Journey, along with the first screenshots of the upcoming 3DS game.

As you probably know by now, this will be a remake of the SMT: Strange Journey game for DS, but with new features such as an easier playability, a new character and new story endings.

Thanks to Famitsu and Gematsu we also got the first story details for SMT: Deep Strange Journey. A strange land with the name of “Schwarzwelt” has suddenly appeared in the Antarctic and the protagonist, along with a Strike Team, must investigate it. Monsters from the Shin Megami Tensei series appear and the player must make a series of choices in order to decide the future of mankind.

Shin Megami Tensei: Deep Strange Journey will launch this fall for 3DS in Japan.

LEGO City Undercover’s packaging appeared online yesterday, which stated that players would need up to 13GB of storage for the “game download” on Switch.  This suggested that the whole title is not included on the physical cartridge itself. But today, LEGO City Undercover publisher Warner Bros. has provided Eurogamer with a statement about the situation.

According to a company spokesperson, “players who purchase LEGO City Undercover on Nintendo Switch at retail do not need to download the game to play”.

If this is true, then we still don’t know why the label says it is required to download up to 13GB of data. It’s possible that some of the game can be played without the additional download, but we can’t say for sure just yet. We’ll keep you informed if we hear anything else about the situation.

During the last Capcom TV broadcast the company revealed that Monster Hunter XX will be the first game that will let the player change the appearance of a set while keeping the stats and abilities from another set. This is a recurring feature that can be found in a lot of MMORPGs but it was never possible in a Monster Hunter game. However, this new system will only be available after geting a G-rank.

Furthermore, Capcom has announced that item management will improve in Monster Hunter XX through a Laboratory Expansion system with item box expansions and additional item set options. In order to unlock the expansion contents we’ll have to progress through the main story mode.

Gamasutra wrote recently a piece asking 9 indie studios how’s it like to develop for Switch. Yacht Club Games, VBlank Entertainment, Game Atelier and Frozenbyte, among others, all agree that Switch has been an enourmous improvement compared to the Wii U days in terms of ease to work with. Many of them even put it on par with Sony’s PlayStation 4, while others think they are still not there, but are catching up.

Brian Provinciano, of VBlank Entertainment, said that “the tools and hardware are much better than they were for the Wii U, so devs from the previous generation should look forward to digging into the Switch”. Additionally, David Bellanco, of Game Atelier agreed in that “Nintendo did a very good job making it easier to develop on the Switch”. He also declared that “it’s very straightforward, I push play on my visual studio, it runs on the device and I can debug very easily.”
