Square Enix has introduced a variety of Daemons that will assist the player in battle in Oninaki, the upcoming action-RPG developed from Tokyo RPG Factory.

Here’s a rundown of the Daemons system:

System: Switch
Release date: May 28, 2019
Developer: Nippon Ichi Software
Publisher: NIS America


Games are often praised for the depth and variety of their content. Nintendo fans will surely remember how Breath of the Wild was widely praised for shaking up the Zelda series by providing incredible amounts of different things to do and experience. But not every game has to provide such diversity; some can thrive by doing a single thing and doing it well. Lapis x Labyrinth, the latest anime action RPG from Nippon Ichi Software, aims to be an example of the strength of streamlined game design with its single-minded emphasis on loot grinding combat and character-stacking party formations. Unfortunately, while there is a solid core gameplay loop to be found here, it’s let down by the game’s incredibly repetitive structure and boring level design, leading to an experience that frequently feels more frustrating than focused.

With NPD reporting its latest sales results from the United States in April, Nintendo is taking home more good news. Switch was once again the best-selling hardware platform as well as year-to-date. That’s in terms of both unit and dollar sales.

The Switch 32GB system with Neon Red/Blue Joy-Con is the best-selling individual hardware item of 2019. Although year-to-date hardware spending has declined 16 percent versus year ago across the industry to $918 million, Nintendo’s console continues to perform well.

Konami has nailed down a release date for Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution in the west. It’ll be out overseas on August 20, the company has confirmed.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution will be sold both physically and digitally for $39.99 / €39.99. Those who purchase the game at retail will receive a trio of Trading Card Game (TCG) cards. Progleo, the Cyberse Monster Micro Coder, and the Spell Card Cynet Codec will be included.

The critically-acclaimed adventure game Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is coming to Switch, 505 Games has revealed.

New to the Switch version, a two-player mode will be included. You’ll be able to control both brothers at once in single-player or with a friend in co-op.

Nintendo announced today that it will end services for Fire Emblem Heroes and Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp in Belgium on August 27 this year. This is due to a recent change to certain gambling laws in Belgium, making in-game loot boxes that can be purchased with real money illegal. The law is not 100% clear, but it seems like Nintendo decided to err on the side of caution and remove these games entirely from the Belgian market. Until August 27, both Fire Emblem Heroes and Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp can still be played normally and players can still use Orbs and Leaf Tickets, respectively. After August 27, both games can no longer be played or downloaded.

Additionally, future Nintendo games with similar business models won’t be released in Belgium.

In a sort of roundabout way, it’s been confirmed that you’ll be able to customize your trainer’s clothes in Pokemon Sword & Shield. In Japan, Uniqlo held a contest in collaboration with The Pokemon Company in which participants could design t-shirts with a Pokemon theme. The winning design will be mass-produced and go on sale. Today, the winning design has been revealed – plus the fact that it will also be available in the upcoming Pokemon Sword & Shield as a customization option for the player character. 

Additonally, the next issue of CoroCoro magazine will contain more new information on Pokemon Sword & Shield. That issue will be available on June 21, however, ten days after Nintendo’s E3 presentation, so it seems unlikely that CoroCoro will reveal a ton of actual new info.

Hello, my angry suns! In this episode of NEP, we’ve got two special guests joining Oni and Galen: Tim and Tyler from Something Classic Games with the occasional woof from Tyler’s dog, Jackson. Something Classic recently debuted their stylish, modern take on SNES-era JRPGs, “Shadows of Adam”, on Nintendo Switch!

Join the four of us as we talk all about our reactions to the Super Mario Maker 2 direct and what we think of the unannounced new game style(s), too! We start things off with a casual interview of sorts where Tim and Tyler fill us in on their history in the games and music industries, tales of development, inspiring stories, RPG Maker back in the day, the roots of Shadows of Adam, and what transformations took place over the years. We also end up just chatting about general gaming habits, Pokemon GO, houses full of musicians, cats and dogs, memes…

If you’re a fan of classic SNES JRPGs, you don’t want to miss out on this episode and you definitely don’t want to miss out on Shadows of Adam. So, come have a chill time with us and get to know two of the devs from Something Classic Games.
