Following several other developers and publishers, Capcom has now also revealed its lineup of games for the upcoming Tokyo Game Show, which starts in two weeks (thanks to Gematsu for the translation). Capcom isn’t bringing a whole lot of games in general, and only three that are on Nintendo systems – Monster Hunter Stories, to showcase its 1.2 update, and both Resident Evil Revelations and Resident Evil Revelations 2 on Switch, all of which will be playable on the show floor.

The official Japanese website for Fire Emblem Warriors has been updated again with some new information and screenshots showing off the game’s reinforcement systems and the the recently new announced characters Male Corrin, Sakura, and Elise.

Below is the new information for Fire Emblem Warriors translated, courtesy of Gematsu.

■ Characters

Corrin (Male) (voiced by Nobunaga Shimazaki)

A young man who was brought up in Nohr while being of Hoshido blood. He has the power of a dragon hidden within him and fights using a sword called “Yato,” as well as possesses the special trait of turning into a dragon to attack. His attack motions and abilities are the same as Corrin (Female) (voiced by Satomi Sato).

Sakura (voiced by Hikiko Kanemoto)

The kind-hearted princess of Hoshido. She was separated from Fire Emblem Fates protagonist Corrin when she was a child. She attacks using a bow and has the ability to recover HP like Elise.

Elise (voiced by Ayaka Suwa)

The youngest of the four Nohrian royal siblings. She has a cheerful and innocent personality that shines brightly upon the gloomy kingdom. She is a Troubadour who fights riding a horse, can heal allies, and uses attack magic.

One of the features NBA 2K18 has added in recent years is face simulation technology. By using a mobile app, players can bring their visual appearance into the game.

Switch owners will have access to the functionality… just not at launch. 2K wrote on its official forums that the feature will be patched in “through subsequent updates”. A specific date was not mentioned.


In an interview with Destructoid talking about Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes, director Suda51 had many positive things to say about Switch. Translator James Mountain relayed the following:

“He feels that the Switch has a lot of possibilities as a console. There’s a lot of new things it’s trying out as a piece of hardware. There’s a lot of things he’d be able to do by putting the game on the Switch that he wouldn’t be able to do putting it on another console. So far, everyone’s been really supportive for him. The console itself is fun and easy to develop for. And as far as the type of game this is and the way controls are going to work out, it’s a perfect fit.”

Suda51 will be using the Switch Joy-Con in a number of ways in Travis Strikes Again. The method of charging the beam katana from the original No More Heroes games will be returning, and you’ll be able to play with a single controller. Suda51 intends to bring back features from the old games and potentially implement some new ones.


Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is a couple of weeks away from launching on Switch in the west, but it arrived in Japan earlier today. That means footage is starting to hit the net, including the video below with 38 minutes of gameplay.

PowerA has two new specially-designed controllers lined up for Switch. Next month, the new hardware with Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Mario designs will be released.

Both controllers have been officially licensed by Nintendo. They feature six interchangeable analog caps for custom control, soft-touch rubber grips for added comfort, and a 10-foot removable USB cable.

The two controllers should be out on October 23. Amazon has the Zelda one up for pre-order here, and the Mario edition here.

Earlier this year, Bigben and Breakpoint announced Tennis World Tour. Platforms were mostly a mystery at the time, but Bigben has now confirmed that the game is coming to Switch.

Tennis World Tour is intended to be a spiritual successor of sorts to the Top Spin franchise. Pierre André, who was a producer on Top Spin 4, is working on the project.

Details are mostly unknown at the moment. We do know that 30 playable tennis stars will be included, such as Roger Federer, Gaël Monfils, Angelique Kerber, Garbiñe Muguruza, Carolin Wozniacki, Nick Kyrgios, Alexander Zverev, and John Isner.

Tennis World Tour is heading to Switch in 2018.

Note: screenshot is from Top Spin 4.


Alongside the actual launch of LEGO Worlds this week, Warner Bros. has also released the Classic Space DLC on Nintendo’s console. Get a look at some footage below.

Fire Emblem Warriors was shown off during a Japanese live stream earlier today. Take a look at eight minutes of footage from the recording below.
