Switch

It’s time for the latest Famitsu‘s most wanted games chart. Zelda: Breath of the Wild on Switch moves up several spots while a number of new Switch games also appear for the first time.

Head past the break for the full chart. All votes were cast between January 26 and February 1.

Boxes for upcoming Switch games have started to show up in Japan. One of these includes Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers, which has been floating around on places on 2ch. The box provides a couple of important details about the game.

First, it’s now officially confirmed that Ultra Street Fighter II will have a new first-person mode. This was originally teased in the game’s debut trailer last month. It’s a unique game mode called “Unleash! Ha”DO”ken”, and is specialized for use with the Joy-Con controllers in a first-person view.

Eagle-eyed Zelda fans have spotted another section from Breath of the Wild’s menu that seems to tie in to a certain game mechanic. Just to potentially avoid spoilers and be extra safe, we’ve posted the image after the break.

Splatoon 2 producer Hisashi Nogami shared a bunch of information about the game in an interview with 4Gamer last week. Famitsu published its own interview with Nogami in the magazine’s latest issue, and surprisingly, had a ton more to say.

First, Nogami went in-depth about what’s planned for Splatoon 2 in terms of weapons. He also further clarified how Switch’s new mobile app will work for online play, spoke about improving the visuals this time around, and confirmed HD Rumble. If that wasn’t enough, Nogami also noted that Splatoon on Wii U won’t have its online play discontinued anytime soon.

You can continue on below for our full translation (note: some small parts omitted due to being covered in the 4Gamer post, old, or not being relevant to anything). Strap yourselves in, since this is a pretty lengthy one.

The Telegraph has put up a pretty lengthy interview with Nintendo’s Yoshiaki Koizumi and Shinya Takahashi all about Switch. Topics include third-parties, talk of the system’s price and power, paid online service, and more. Additionally, we hear some comments that Nintendo is planning 3DS games for 2018.

Notable excerpts from the interview can be found below. For the full interview, head on over to The Telegraph.

Before Splatoon released for Wii U, Nintendo made something known as the “Splatoon Global Testfire”. It was a limited online demo which allowed fans to get a taste for what the game had to offer at certain days / times. For Splatoon 2, Nintendo has announced that this will be returning.

Splatoon 2 Global Testfire will be hosted in late March. Players will be able to try out four different main weapons, including the new Splat Dualies, plus remixed versions of the iconic Splat Roller and Splat Charger.

The relevant days / times for Splatoon 2 Global Testfire are as follows:

Update (2/11): Disgaea 5 Complete can now be pre-ordered on Amazon in Canada and the UK.


Original (2/8): Amazon now has its listing open for Disgaea 5 Complete. Thanks to that, we’re able to get a look at the North American boxart. You can pre-order the game here.

If you listen closely to the sounds and music playing in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, you might be able to hear a classic tune. Fans have discovered that a certain theme plays while you’re out exploring Hyrule Field. It’s subtle though, so it might not be entirely easy to detect.
