Update 4: All of the eShops are back up.

Update 3: Hearing reports that the Switch eShop may have gone down again, or is still down for some. Will continue to monitor.

Update 2: Switch is back up. So currently, Wii U and 3DS are the only systems impacted as of 1:40 PM ET.

Update: Bumped to the top. Wii U and 3DS eShops are now down as well.

Original: Since early this morning, the Switch eShop has been offline. Nintendo hasn’t said what the cause is, but one possibility is an influx of traffic. It’s Christmas after all, and there could be a whole lot of people receiving the system as a gift today.

Nintendo has only said the following about the situation:

Do you remember Little Devil Inside? Neostream funded the action-adventure RPG on Kickstarter way back in May 2015.

When the campaign originally ran, Wii U support was achieved. However, things are quite different these days, and Switch has essentially replaced the older console. A release on Wii U is probably unlikely at this point, but the developer did recently tell Inven Global that they’re interested in a Switch version after the initial PC launch.

Neostream still has a long road ahead as the QA phase for Little Devil Inside is planned for the end of 2018. Perhaps we’ll see it on Switch sometime in 2019? In the meantime, here’s the latest video which was just shared last week:


At the end of August, it was announced that Nicalis will be publishing Save me Mr Tako: Tasukete Tako-San on Switch. Originally, the plan was to have it ready sometime this year. With 2017 just about over, unfortunately, we’ll have to wait until 2018 for Save me Mr Tako.

In a blog update, Deneos states that Save me Mr Tako “is now almost ready for submission”. Additionally, “it will be released as soon as possible next year.”

L.F.O.: Lost Future Omega

L.F.O.: Lost Future Omega was announced for Switch earlier this year. Today, Mebius confirmed that it’s slated for December 28 in Japan.

In L.F.O., the music played has its sound synced based on the player’s actions and the changes on screen. Some of the sounds from the previous stage can be chosen to be brought to the next stage. Therefore even reaching the same stage may result in different arrangements based on the routes chosen in the playthrough.

D3Publisher currently has a total of four games lined up for Switch. In the latest issue of Famitsu, the magazine outlines the full lineup.

Two visual novels, The Men of Yoshiwara: Ohgiya and The Men of Yoshiwara: Kikuya, will be out this winter. D3Publisher is also planning tennis and billiards games for late-January and mid-February respectively. Finally, D3Publisher’s The Escape Trick series will be making an appearance this winter.


This week’s Famitsu review scores are as follows:

Pinball FX2 VR (PS4) – 8/7/8/8
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (XBO) – 8/8/8/8
Dragon Fang Z (Switch) – 7/8/7/6

Zerodiv published Gunbird on the Switch eShop this month. But if you look for the game now, you’ll be out of luck. The game has currently been removed.

Signs point to Gunbird having some sort of exploit. We imagine that once it’s fixed, it will return to the eShop. Hopefully sooner rather than later.


Update: Bumped to the top. Added in more discounts including Axiom Verge, Spelunker Party!, and The Flame In The Flood: Complete Edition.

Original: Tons of new discounts have gone live across all eShops. Switch, 3DS, and even Wii U have quite a number of savings.

Over on Switch, a whole slew of games have received discounts, including 75% off the excellent Oxenfree, 50% off Riptide GP Renegade and Unbox: Newbie’s Adventure, and 25% off L.A. Noire. On both 3DS and Wii U, Capcom’s games are available at lowerf prices. There are other highlights as well with THQ Noric games for cheap, including Darksiders Warmastered Edition for just $4.

These are the notable discounts we’ve come across:
