Gleamlight

This week on Nintendo Everything Podcast, Galen’s back and he gives us nothing. Meanwhile, Oni Dino can hardly contain his excitement for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. We analyze the trailer a bit for sneak peeks and have some fun wondering what the game could be like, based on our experiences with Hyrule Warriors and Breath of the Wild. Addition, we feign our surprise at No More Heroes 3’s delay, we aren’t talking about Ubisoft, Galen’s creative spark is awoken by RPG Maker, Oni Dino boomerangs on Manifold Garden, Gleamlight is dim, and more.

Gleamlight’s launch appears to be just a couple of weeks away. According to an eShop listing, the action game is lined up for August 20.

D3 Publisher and Dico originally announced Gleamlight during a December 2019 Indie World Showcase. We knew it would be releasing sometime this year, but this is the first time we’ve had an actual date.

Here’s some information about Gleamlight plus a trailer:

Hello my beautiful indie darlings. This week on NEP, join Oni Dino and Karen on some big topics! We’re talking The Game Awards: is it really a good celebration of video games?

We also discuss the Nindie Showcase from earlier this week (including weighing in on the Gleamlight backlash)—Reggie says it best: indies are the most important in the industry! We also chat Resident Evil 3 Remake, and Oni Dino has tips for the newly released, unconventional JRPG, SaGa Scarlet Grace: Ambitions.

One of the new games announced during this week’s Indie World Showcase is Gleamlight. Coming from publisher D3Publisher and developer DICO, it’s slated for an early 2020 launch on Switch.

Unfortunately, the reveal hasn’t gone over entirely well. Gleamlight has drawn some harsh reactions to Hollow Knight, with some gamers calling it a “ripoff”. The comparisons can be found in responses to Nintendo’s tweet about the game, as well as on YouTube. Speaking of YouTube, Nintendo’s upload of the trailer currently has has more dislikes than likes.
