Update 2 (4/17): Square Enix made the full recording available again. We have it below.


Update: Square Enix has quickly taken down the recording for whatever reason. For now, we’ve added in unofficial uploads of the footage below.


The Japanese Dragon Quest XI Release Date Presentation has wrapped up, and the full recording is now online. The main highlight here is the tons of footage shown of both versions. Unfortunately, there was no specific news about Switch.

Nintendo has added in yet another period of maintenance for Switch. Certain network services on the system such as online play and rankings may be affected.

The schedule is as follows:

– 5 PM PT – 7 PM PT
– 8 PM ET – 10 PM ET
– 1 AM in the UK – 3 AM in Europe
– 2 AM in Europe – 4 AM in Europe

The official ARMS twitter page has posted some new artwork of Mechanica and Ribbon Girl facing off. Hopefully we get similar artwork for more of the cast in the future.

Samurai Shodown IV is the latest NeoGeo game to release on the Switch, and Nintendaan has provided footage of the game in action. Check out the samurai fighting action below:

It’s time for the latest Famitsu‘s most wanted games chart. Dragon Quest XI retains its position while Fire Emblem Echoes moves up another spot.

Head past the break for the full chart. All votes were cast between March 30 and April 5.

Original: We missed Aqua Style’s first tweet which says that the demo will be exclusively playable at Reitaisai, so nothing is official regarding a final release. As the actual effort is being put into the project, we would be surprised if something doesn’t happen with the game on Switch down the line.


Original: Touhou Genso Wanderer is coming to Switch, Aqua Style has revealed. The company shared the announcement on its Twitter page.

If all goes well, Touhou Genso Wanderer will be playable at Touhou Game Show 2017 at Tokyo Big Sight on May 7. This is part of a bigger Touhou Project convention, the Reitaisai.

NIS America localized the PS4 and PS Vita versions of Touhou Genso Wanderer last month, but it’s unclear if there are any plans for the Switch version in the west – especially since development isn’t terribly far along. As for the game itself, it’s a roguelike RPG that has players controling Reimu, the Hakurei Shrine Maiden, to investigate the latest incident to take place in the world of Gensokyo.

Here’s a look at the title:

At the end of last week, we posted several character profiles for ARMS. The game’s Japanese website provided additional information on Spring Man, Ribbon Girl, Ninjara, Master Mummy, Min Min, and Mechanica.

We took a look at the overviews ourselves, and noticed that there was some extra information not included in the original translation. Continue on below for the complete character profiles

Spring Man
Affiliation: Spring Gym*
Height: 5’11”
Weight: 168 lbs
Age: 20
Favorite things: Working out, pizza (my record is 12 pies)

Furious fighter with spring-shaped arms!
Acts like a goofball, but he’s no joke in the ring.
His indomitable spirit keeps him in a constantly charged state while he’s in a pinch, as he aims for the reigning champion’s belt!

A trio of new screenshots are online for Sonic Forces. Take a look at the latest images from SEGA’s upcoming game below.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has very few restrictions. Even in the opening section, you have a huge area to explore – that being The Great Plateau.

The only limitation is that you need to complete a few tasks before leaving The Great Plateau. Once that’s done, you’ll be given Link’s trusty paraglider. It’s then that you’re free to leave and explore Hyrule to its fullest.
