In Game Informer’s latest episode of the GI Show, the voice actor behind Princess Zelda from Breath of the Wild, Patricia Summersett, is interviewed about her experience voicing the character.

While nothing new related to the game is revealed, it’s nonetheless worth listening to if you’re interested in hearing how the voice of the current incarnation of Princess Zelda was chosen. The segment featuring the interview starts at 1:30:45 in the video below.

NIS America, the publisher behind Disgaea 5 Complete, posted an image of the game’s cartridge on Twitter, which you can get a look at below. Additionally, you can make out some eye-catching artwork inside the case for the game in the background.


 

More details and screenshots have emerged regarding the recently announced Plantera DX for Switch, including a confirmation of a western release. Ratalaika Games will bring Plantera DX to the west “later down the line,” possibly as late as the 2017 holiday season. This version of the game is supposedly around three times larger than the 3DS version of the title. New content is included in this version of the game as well, such as new animals and characters, improved graphics and new music.

While the original wording was a bit vague, it seems that Plantera DX will only have limited support for the Switch in TV mode, as the focus on touch screen controls is still present in this version. The content added in Plantera DX is exclusive to the Switch version of the game, and will not be added to the 3DS or Wii U versions of the game.

While Plantera DX isn’t expected to release until the “holiday season” outside of Japan, the Japanese version of the game includes an English translation. If you don’t feel like waiting, you should have little trouble picking it up from the Japanese eShop when it’s released.

You can find new screenshots of the game in the gallery below.

In a post made on the forum NeoGaf earlier today, a developer from FDG Entertainment stated that, while too earlier to confirm anything, the Switch and PS4 will be likely to see physical releases. Read the full post below.

It’s too early to confirm anything but Switch and PS4 have the best chances for a physical release because of a less risky business. That said we love Xbox One too – everyone from the [email protected] Team is super nice and helpful. We’ll see! Hopefully there’s enough interest coming from players of all platforms while we’re pitching to retail distributors. The amount of Twitter votes for a physical copy of Monster Boy have been very encouraging so far. Thanks for the continued interest!

It seems somewhat likely that we’ll see a physical release here. We’ll keep you updated should anything more concrete show up.

Yacht Club Games recently revealed a cheat code for Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment changes the way Specter Knight wall jumps to be more in line with the wall jumping from Mega Man X. There are two versions of the cheat, both of which are identical except for the color palette swap that comes with the changed wall jump mechanics. One will turn Specter Knight blue, and the other will change him to red, both of which are likely homages to X and Zero from Mega Man X.

You can find Yacht Club’s Twitter posts, in which they reveal the cheat code, below. For those of you eager to relive the glory days of Mega Man X, the cheat codes are as follows:

  • For the blue palette, enter C&MVRKHNT when making a profile.
  • For the red palette, enter  S&CBHR when making a profile.

 

Coming from the Play Nintendo YouTube channel is the first episode of “Frizzy’s Silly amiibo Theater” show. The show looks to be a smaller, vignette-like counterpart to the main Play Nintendo show.

The synopsis for the premier episode is as follows, direct from the video description:

Hey kids! Check out the first-ever episode of Frizzy’s Silly amiibo Theater! Help Mario, Princess Peach and Yoshi track down the pudding stealer.

In a recent interview with Gamespot,  Tekken series producer Katsuhiro Harada commented on the possibility of Tekken 7 arriving on the Nintendo Switch. When asked about what the future would hold for Tekken 7 fans on the Switch, Harada had this to say:

“Officially, we can’t really comment on that because our company has strict policy about which titles we talk about for Switch. But personally, we’ve been so busy with trying to master up Tekken for the current platforms that we haven’t really had enough time to study the hardware. We couldn’t even buy it–it was sold out every time we went to look for it.”

Unfortunately, it seems like the possibility of Tekken 7 coming to the Switch is far in the future, at best. You can read the full interview here.

It looks like TumbleSeed will see a release in Japan on May 2, the same date it releases in Europe and North America. It will be in English only, with no Japanese text, and be priced at ¥1,600.
