How Bayonetta Origins came to be

In a recent interview with Japanese magazine Famitsu, the team behind Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon shared insight into how the game came to be.

When the title was unveiled at The Game Awards last December, it was a surprise to many. It not only features a different look for the franchise, but a unique style of gameplay as well. Something that was also a surprise was how it was planned to launch just a few months after Bayonetta 3.

We’ve put together a new video guide that will tell you about all every location for Korok Seeds on Great Sky Island in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

Players start the game in a similar area to Breath of the Wild’s Great Plateau, and right away, there are things to collect. In our video walkthrough, we take you through all Korok Seed locations on the Great Sky Island in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. There are a surprising amount of secrets tucked away in this short opening area. These seeds will help expand your inventory for shields, weapons, and bows by turning them in to Hestu – similar to the previous title – throughout your journey.

After years of anticipation, The Legend of Zelda Tears of the Kingdom is finally here, and you can bet your rupees that we’ve been playing it! In this special episode of Nintendo Everything refresh, join your hosts Nicolas, Tom and Sam (joining us from our YouTube channel for the first time) as we dive deep into Link’s new adventure, all the new gameplay systems, the world, the story and more! We’ll also discuss the latest news from Nintendo on the future of the Switch, the delay of Hogwarts Legacy’s Switch version, and much more!

Theatrhythm Final Bar Line Final Fantasy future

The developers of Theatrhythm Final Bar Line have weighed in on the series’ future. This could be the end… or perhaps not.

Series director Masanobu Suzui and producer Ichiro Hazama recently spoke with Dengeki Online, and said that Final Bar Line is intended to be the last game in the series. However, Hazama did acknowledge that things may not necessarily end if fans show their interest. It was also shared that Nomura came up with the new for the new title.

Here’s our full translation:

The moment many Nintendo fans had been waiting for finally happened this week – we’re of course referring to The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom launching. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: this is a huge release for Switch and one of the most notable titles of 2023 for gaming in general. It’s been six years since Nintendo came out with Breath of the Wild – the series’ most successful entry – so it’s understandable how much anticipation there’s been behind it.

Although it’s not been terribly long since Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom arrived given how it just came out yesterday, many of you likely have been sinking your teeth into it by this point. With that in mind, we’re interested in your early impressions. If you picked up the game, how are you feeling about it so far? How do you think it compares to Breath of the Wild? Let us know in the comments below.

Zelda: Tears of The Kingdom is right around the corner, but that hasn’t stopped Nintendo from making the news in other ways! In this week’s episode of Nintendo Everything Refresh, we’ll discuss Nintendo’s recently announced presence at Gamescom 2023, as well as the massive success of the Super Mario Bros. Movie at the box office and what that might mean for the future. We’ll also share details on some surprising Switch games announced recently, including a port of Biomutant, The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan, and an indie game about dogs playing poker.

With The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom right around the corner, we have made a full game walkthrough of the original game for those that want to cross this game off their Zelda backlog. Inspired by the YouTuber Loogaroo’s classic “How to Beat Dragon Warrior… in less than 5 minutes” guide, Tom has made a video in a similar style for The Legend of Zelda on NES.

Note: this is not a speedrun.

Theatrhythm Final Bar Line no touch controls

Previous Theatrhythm games allowed games to use touch controls, but Final Bar Line is all about buttons. This is in spite of the fact that Switch does have a touch screen. In a recent interview, series director Masanobu Suzui and producer Ichiro Hazama revealed that there was some consideration around supporting both methods, but it wasn’t meant to be.

Suzui, speaking with Dengeki Online, brought up one factor which is that Switch has a capacitance-type touchscreen while 3DS featured a pressure-type one. While there was talk about supporting button controls and touch controls for each song, he said that the team “already needed multiple copies of sheet music for each song to account for difficulty levels.”

Here’s our translation of the comments from Suzui and Hazama:

A new month started up last week. Now that we’re in May, we want to know what you’ve been playing.

For Xenoblade Chronicles 3 fans, did you get a chance to go through the Future Redeemed DLC? What about some of the recent heavy hitters like Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp, Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster, or Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection? No matter the case, let us know in the comments below.
