New Atlus survey in Japan asks fans which systems they want to see Persona 6 and other games on
Posted on 2 months ago by Matt(@OnePunchMaz) in General Gaming, News | 64 Comments | 0 Likes
Atlus has sent out a new survey to its Japanese customers. In it, they want to hear their fans’ opinions on a variety of topics, but mostly which games they want to see on which systems. The games range from sequels to remakes to re-releases to entirely new games and IPs.
A big topic is naturally the Persona series. Atlus is even asking fans about non-video game stuff here, asking whether fans would be interested in a new Persona board game. Another question is about interest in a non-RPG Persona game, such as a strategy game or a shooter. Atlus also mentions a hypothetical Persona 6. As mentioned before, fans can choose which systems they’d like to see these games on. The choices for the system include the Switch and the 3DS.
Naturally, you shouldn’t be jumping to any conclusions based on this survey. Atlus has sent out surveys like this in the past and the choices aren’t necessarily indicative of Atlus’ actual plans. Persona 6 on Switch is sure to be a popular choice, but that doesn’t mean it’s actually going to happen. For now, Persona fans can look forward to Persona Q2 on 3DS.

Capcom holding 30th anniversary Mega Man stream on December 4th

Capcom has announced that they will be holding a 30th anniversary Mega Man live stream on December 4th, from 11 AM to 12 PM PST on Twitch. We don’t really have any further details at this moment, other than Capcom’s insistence that “you won’t want to miss it”. The Mega Man franchise hasn’t exactly been booming lately, so it’s quite possible that this event won’t have any gaming-related news at all (or nothing Nintendo-related). In any case, if there are any big announcements during that live stream, you will hear about it from us.

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy currently listed for Switch on Keymailer
Posted on 6 months ago by Tyler(@tylerlelliott) in General Gaming, News, Switch | 100 Comments | 0 Likes
Update: The dream is dead, for now anyway. Keymailer’s co-founder says the listing was an error.
Keymailer co-founder here. This was news to me when I saw this thread. I reached out to the management team and apparently this is, sadly, an error on our side. The game was incorrectly tagged when we imported the upcoming releases.
Apologies on behalf of the company for any disappointment on this, as a Switch owner and a fan of Crash Bandicoot, I would have been as excited to play this.
Original: Keymailer is a company that connects YouTube and Twitch content creators to games publishers and developers via review codes. Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is currently listed for the Switch on Keymailer’s site. While this is likely an error, this would not be the first time the Crash Bandicoot series has appeared on Nintendo hardware, and there has been some inconsistent information whether the title would be a Sony exclusive.
Bplus Games asks players to vote on Puzzle Box Maker’s Switch icon
Posted on 6 months ago by Tyler(@tylerlelliott) in General Gaming, News, Switch eShop | 6 Comments | 0 Likes
Much has been made about Switch menu game icons over the past few months. Many system owners have voiced their opinions about them – with some vocal players dissatisfied with the way they look. Snake Pass, LEGO Worlds, and SteamWorld Dig 2 are among the titles people have requested to be changed.
To circumvent this issue, developer Bplus Games is taking a proactive approach in asking its followers to participate in a poll to determine which icon will be used for their upcoming Puzzle Box Maker. The four options are viewable in the image above. This seems to be a sensible approach in handling some players’ strong feelings about what an icon should look like.
