Five minutes of off-screen footage has come in showing Fire Emblem Warriors’ demo at Japan Expo. Most of the gameplay consists of Lucina, but we also get a glimpse at Lissa, male Robin, and Frederick (as a boss). We’ve included the video below.

Details about these characters can be found in our previous post here.

It’s time for the latest Famitsu‘s most wanted games chart. Super Mario Odyssey enters the top five for the first time, and Pokemon Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon have a big bump.

Head past the break for the full chart. All votes were cast between June 22 and June 28.

All characters in ARMS have different color options to choose from. Max Brass, who is joining the roster this coming week, will be no different.

Nintendo provided a first look at the character’s alternate colors on the Japanese ARMS Twitter account. Get a first look below.

Dragon Quest XI has a unique “Restricted Play” mode. When going through this mode, you can experience the RPG with certain features disabled.

Square Enix previously confirmed being unable to shop, being unable to run away from battle, and being unable to equip armor as the first three restrictions. The fourth was announced during the “Countdown Carnival” in Japan this past weekend.

Dragon Quest XI’s next restriction is known as “ashamed curse”. It makes you unable to speak properly to people in town, causes embarrassing things to happen in battle that make you unable to act (such as the elastic band of your underwear breaking), and has various other embarrassing elements.

Bandai Namco provided an update on Namco Museum this week. Included in the news is that the digital release will support Download Play in Pac-Man Vs. through a free eShop app that can be used on a second Switch system. We have some additional details about Namco Museum aside from that feature.

First, Namco Museum will support all of Switch’s play styles. You can experience the collection on a TV, in tabletop mode, or in portable mode.

All titles except Pacman Vs. can be played in not only horizontal screen but also vertical screen. Doing so makes each of the games closer to arcade screens. However, playing vertically in TV mode will require a television that supports pivot (rotating screen)

Challenge mode has been added for the ten original titles (not including Pacman Vs). Each game will have their own challenges, such as in Pac-Man. One of the challenges there is to “continuously eat Ghosts within 3 minutes”.

Below are a few additional screenshots from Namco Museum showing menus, etc.:

Nintendo and Koei Tecmo prepared a new Fire Emblem Warriors trailer for Japan Expo earlier in the week. At the actual event in France, a fresh build of the game is on display with the latest characters included.

As far as the story goes, the twins live peacefully in their kingdom until a dragon attacks. When that happens, the two are forced to leave. They’ll need to ask help from heroes of other worlds in order to reclaim their kingdom.

Male Robin, Lissa, and Lucina (plus Female Corrin who we’ve already seen) are playable at Japan Expo. New details are in for each.

Here’s the rundown on Robin as relayed by FuranSuwa:

The latest entry on the Nintendo Treehouse Log shifts the focus back to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – and specifically Bokoblins. Nate Bihldorff writes about their behavior,

You can read the new post from Bihldorff about Breath of the Wild here. Find some concept art below as well.

In the last major update, Minecraft received a new Giants Glide Track Pack on Wii U. We’ve attached the official trailer below.
