Katana Kami: A Way of the Samurai Story is receiving another update on Switch soon. Version 1.03 will include fixes as well as balance adjustments and improvements.

For the full patch notes, continue on below.

While it wasn’t in the western versions of today’s Nintendo Direct Mini, Spike Chunsoft revealed in the Japanese edition that it will be putting Shiren the Wanderer: The Tower of Fortune and the Dice of Fate Plus on Switch. It will launch later this year.

For the Switch version, new dungeons will be included.

Here’s an overview of Shiren the Wanderer: The Tower of Fortune and the Dice of Fate Plus, along with some footage;

In July of last year, Spike Chunsoft announced that Robotics;Notes Elite would be released in the West with a targeted release date of “2020”. Since then, the publisher has been silent on the game’s release outside Japan. However, it seems like we might be fairly close to a release of the visual novel as it has recently been rated by the ESRB. The game received a “Teen” rating for the North American market. Here’s the ESRB’s full rating description for the game:

This is an adventure game in which players follow the story of a high-school student solving a mystery involving robotics. As players progress through the narrative, they may encounter instances of violence: a man pointing a gun at characters; a woman jumping off a cliff (off-screen) to her death; a woman pointing a gun at her head. In some sequences, players can briefly engage in robot battles, as players enter commands (e.g., on-screen prompts) to see attacks performed. In a handful of sequences, blood is seen pooling underneath a character’s leg and staining a man’s hands. The game also contains references to sexual material in the dialogue (e.g., “This sl*t is trying to be sexy”; “Mitsuhiko, you’re gonna get sued for sexual harassment”; “You put sleeping pills in this, didn’t you? Then while I’m asleep, you’re gonna have your way with me”; “If possible, I wanted to gaze upon your nude bod for a little longer.”). The word “sh*t” appears in the game.

Usually a game receiving an age rating means that its release is somewhat close. Hopefully there’ll be an official announcement soon. The game’s sequel, Robotics;Notes Dash, was also announced for a Western release alongside Elite, but so far it hasn’t received an age rating.
