For a long time now, Directs are the primary channel in which Nintendo communicates with its fans. These presentations provide updates about what’s being developed internally and always keeping the cycle of hype alive.

With more than ten years of producing these videos, Nintendo evolved a lot, changing the format and trying to create better and more entertaining presentations. Since 2017 it seems that they finally found a good formula, usually bringing a lot of new and exciting announcements. In the video below I analyze Directs to understand how Nintendo managed to refine the formula. You can watch it down below.

EGGLIA Rebirth interview

Shinichi Kameoka has had a pretty distinguished career. One of his most notable achievements was Mother 3, of which he worked on the game as a producer. He was also a system designer, character designer, and scenario writer for the original Mana series, including Secret of Mana and SaGa Frontier.

Kameoka’s studio Brownies just put out a new title on Switch in the form of EGGLIA Rebirth. We were recently given the chance to speak with him about releasing the game on Nintendo’s console as well as a few other topics.

A new February 2022 Nintendo Direct aired this week, and it was quite the juicy one. Nintendo itself had its fair share of announcements per usual, and third-parties jumped in with some news as well.

Looking strictly at what Nintendo brought to the show, the company revealed Xenoblade Chronicles 3, Mario Strikers: Battle League, Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Houses, and Nintendo Switch Sports. We also found out that Mario Kart 8 Deluxe will be getting some pretty big DLC in the form of 48 remastered tracks that will drop in six waves through 2023. EarthBound and EarthBound Beginnings joined Switch Online, Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp got a new release date, Kirby and the Forgotten Land unveiled Mouthful Mode, and Splatoon 3 showed off its Salmon Run mode.

mother 3 localization worldwide release

It’s been over 15 years since Mother 3’s original debut, but the RPG has never received an official English localization. However, one important developer that worked on the project hopes to see that happen someday.

Producer Shinichi Kameoka recently told Nintendo Everything that much like the fans, he’d “also love to see Mother 3 released in the US and Europe.” He added: “As a lover of games, I will continue to wait for Mother 3’s release worldwide release (in English).

february 2022 nintendo direct live stream

The February 2022 Nintendo Direct will be kicking off in just a bit, and we’ve set up a live stream. We actually have separate embeds ready to go for North America, Europe, and Japan.

As was announced yesterday, the event will begin at 2 PM PT / 5 PM ET / 10 PM in the UK / 11 PM in Europe. We mentioned this previously, but it’ll focus on Switch games launching during the first half of 2022 – though Nintendo could go beyond that window for some games. In any case, we’re in for 40 minutes of news.

You can watch the February 2022 Nintendo Direct as it happens with the live stream below. We’ll also have a live blog going throughout the event plus additional coverage on the main site during and after it airs.

Since its launch in 2017, everyone expected The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild to be influential in the gaming industry. The title received a rare level of praise and brought a new life to the “open-world” genre.

Breath of the Wild is almost five years old and we can already witness how it has influenced some games in different ways. In today’s video, I try to pinpoint the new things that the title brought to the table and how it inspired other developers. You can check the video down below.

[Review] Maglam Lord

Posted on 2 years ago by in Reviews, Switch | 0 comments

Maglam Lord review

System: Switch
Release date: February 4, 2022
Developer: Felistella
Publisher: PQube


As a Demon Lord, Killizerk is a bit unique in that they can equip legendary Maglam weapons, a skill that is seemingly unique to human heroes. After being hunted down as a threat to all existence for this ability, Killizerk awakens in a peaceful future after being resurrected by loyal retainers. Gone are the gods and demon lords of old, and Killizerk is promptly labeled an endangered species that must be preserved at all cost. No longer can they hunt humans for magical energy or cause chaos for fun – this world now focuses on peace for all, and that means keeping icky monsters out of towns and working towards harmony for the humans, heroes of yore, and our surviving demon lord.
