The latest issue of Famitsu has revealed that Robotics;Notes DaSH is coming to the Nintendo Switch in Japan. The game will be available on November 22nd both in stores and on the Nintendo eShop. Robotics;Notes DaSH is a sequel to Robotics;Notes and will directly continue the story from that game with the same cast of characters.

An enhanced version of the first game, Robotics;Notes Elite, is also in the works for Nintendo Switch. We don’t have a concrete release date for that game yet, though it would make sense to release it before the sequel comes out.

Inazuma Eleven Ares is coming to the Nintendo Switch, but Level-5 isn’t quite done with the Nintendo 3DS yet. On July 20th, they released the original Inazuma Eleven as a free download for those with Japanese 3DS systems. Today, 10 days later, the company announced that the game has been downloaded 200,000 times so far. If their apparent goal was to drum up interest for the series in the lead-up to Inazuma Eleven Ares, then it seems like they succeeded.

Level-5 has previously said that this offer will only be available for a limited time, but hasn’t announced a concrete end date yet. So if you own a Japanese 3DS and want the first Inazuma Eleven game for free, better get on it sooner rather than later.
