Best Buy has started pre-orders for the Fire Emblem Warriors Special Edition. If you’re interested, reserve the package here. Fire Emblem Warriors launches on October 20.

Capcom has provided the final boxart for Resident Evil Revelations Collection. We have it above.

To compare, this was the original, tentative version:

Digital Foundry published yet another technical analysis today. With Rayman Legends Definitive Edition releasing on Switch today, the outlet has taken a look at how the game performs. There are some surprising finds here.

To begin, Rayman Legends Definitive Edition runs at 1080p while docked. It mostly runs at 60 frames per second, but a few dips may pop up occasionally. Strangely, the frame rate issues seem to be sorted out after you’ve died once in a level.

Update: The Japanese presentation will be 50 minutes long. There will also be no mobile news.


Original: A new Nintendo Direct presentation will be held on September 13, Nintendo has announced. We’ll be hearing about what’s coming to Switch and 3DS “over the next few months, including new details about Super Mario Odyssey.”

The presentation will be held at the following times:

– 3 PM PT
– 6 PM ET
– 11 PM in the UK
– 12 AM in Europe (September 14)

Both Famitsu and 4Gamer posted previews of Fire Emblem Warriors today, alongside quite a few screenshots, which we’ve rounded up in the gallery below. There aren’t really any spectacular reveals there, but they do show a few nice little tidbits, such as the fact that Cordelia and Camilla are getting a support conversation.

It seems like Bandai Namco added a curious limitation to the Switch version of Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2. The game deactivates the system’s share button during cutscenes, meaning you’re unable to take screenshots of those moments. This was presumably done to prevent spoilers from being spread on social media, but it seems like a strange decision given that the game has been out on other systems for a while now and isn’t exactly narrative-driven to begin with.

It remains to be seen if Bandai Namco will do the same with other Switch games in the future, and if other developers will follow their example.
