Switch dev talk – 50,000 yen for a kit, Capcom wants to make AAA games, much more
Posted on 6 years ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 55 Comments
Earlier today, the Game Creators Conference was held in Japan. At the event, Nintendo’s Masaru Mitsuyoshi held a joint session with Capcom’s Masaru Ijuin about Switch.
One big thing to get out of the way: Switch development kits. These are planned for a cost of roughly 50,000 yen. If you’re doing a direct conversion, that’d be about $450 / $500.
Originally, the Joy-Con controllers were still in the research phase and weren’t included in the explanation document. Ijuin from Capcom said that there was only a touch panel form factor and nothing like the Joy-Con. Because of that, he wasn’t sure in what way the device would be portable. Then after the Joy-Con appeared, he thought “I got it!”.

Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma has appeared in a new Nintendo video to announce a Dutch version of Breath of the Wild. All text will be localized, but the voice acting will remain in English.
This marks the first time ever that a Zelda game has been localized into Dutch. Normally these players only have access to the games in English.
Thanks to DRPS for the tip.

Disgaea 5 Complete launching at the end of May
Posted on 6 years ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 3 Comments
Update: May 23 for North America, just announced at NIS America’s press event.
Disgaea 5 Complete had previously been targeted for Spring 2017 on Switch. Thanks to the latest issue of MCV, we now have a concrete date.
MCV has Disgaea 5 Complete down for May 26. We should point out that this news comes from a UK magazine, but we expect the North American release to be planned for around the same time, if not the same day.
NIS America senior associate producer Alan Costa told MCV:
“Both versions are the same. However, the Switch version features all the DLC from the PS4 version. We will definitely be emphasizing that all DLC can be found on the Switch version as well as highlighting that the game can be played at home or on the go.”
Bonus playable characters and new scenarios encompass the included DLC. The content “adds many more hours of content and strategy to the base game as well as allowing series’ fans to enjoy their favorites from past games.”

The NIS America Press Event live stream is about to begin. We’ll see the start of the show at 7 PM PT / 10 PM ET / 3 AM in the UK / 4 AM in Europe. Due to it being on Twitch with autoplay, you can head past the break for the stream.
NIS America has indicated that a new 3DS title will be announced, which we expect is the localization of RPG Maker Fes. Also, we should officially be hearing about Disgaea 5 Complete’s release date.

With just two weeks to go, Nintendo’s first Switch titles have now been rated by the ESRB. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and 1-2-Switch both popped in the database today and are listed as E10+. We don’t usually cover ESRB descriptions, but we’re making an exception for Switch’s launch. And Zelda’s rating is… certainly interesting.
So first up, Zelda:
