[Review] Temtem

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

Temtem review

System: Switch
Release Date: September 6, 2022
Developer: Crema
Publisher: Humble Games

I’ve always wished I could be whisked away to a world like Pokemon or Dragon Quest Monsters – a place where I can collect creatures and build bonds. A world of adventure where friendships and hard work can lead to more and more epic battles with stronger and stronger opponents. Monster taming games will have to scratch that itch, for now, and Temtem’s island world has a ton of new creatures to meet and befriend, but will it become another destination for our “lets get reincarnated in another world and catch some monsters” dreams, or will this one be overshadowed by its acclaimed predecessors?

Pokemon nuzlocke

Original (9/18): Kit Ellis and Krysta Yang, the two former hosts of Nintendo Minute who also previously worked for many years at Nintendo PR, have given insight into The Pokemon Company’s views on nuzlocke. Apparently, it’s something that’s looked upon very negatively.

Ellis revealed during the latest episode of the Kit & Krysta Podcast that for an episode of Nintendo Minute, an idea was pitched to try a nuzlocke run. Unfortunately, the proposal was immediately shot down.

Switch PC stream card

A ton of different games and products were shown off at the 2022 Tokyo Game Show this week, including an interesting device from Tassei that acts as a PC stream card for Switch.

Using it seems to be fairly straightforward. You simply plug the stream card into the cartridge slot on the Switch, and the device then performs some processing after receiving data from a PC. One game shown off was Stray – it was running on a nearby PC, and it could be played on a Switch. 4Gamer reports that was very little delay, which is obviously important.

Sonic Frontiers Super Sonic bosses

SEGA has spoken more about Super Sonic in Sonic Frontiers and what that form means for the game.

Earlier in the week, we got our first look at Super Sonic thanks to a new trailer revealed at the 2022 Tokyo Game Show. Director Morio Kishimoto has now indicated that there will be bosses in the game that “blue Sonic can’t even scratch” before the power-up is unlocked.

Theatrhythm Final Bar Line DLC

Square Enix has confirmed more franchises that will be represented in the DLC tracks for Theatrhythm Final Bar Line, including The World Ends with You, Chrono, Mana, and Xenogears.

The rhythm action game was announced for Switch this week and we immediately heard about DLC plans. Square Enix will release a Digital Deluxe Edition as well as a Premium Digital Deluxe Edition. The DLC tracks should also be available individually.

The September 2022 Nintendo Direct aired earlier this week, and we want to hear your reactions and thoughts about the show.

Nintendo closed the event with its biggest game: Zelda. We finally have a full title (Tears of the Kingdom), a release date (May 12), and new footage was shown. Outside of Zelda, Nintendo announced Fire Emblem Engage, Pikmin 4, and Kirby’s Return to Dreamland Deluxe. It also revealed new N64 games for Nintendo Switch Online – including GoldenEye 007 – and shared updates for games like Xenoblade Chronicles 3 and Mario Strikers: Battle League.

From third-parties, we got a number of new announcements as well. Some of the games include Octopath Traveler II, Theatrhythm Final Bar Line, and Atelier Ryza 3. Ports and remasters had a presence with the likes of It Takes Two, Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse, Tunic, Rune Factory 3 Special, and Story of Seasons: A Wonderful Life.

This isn’t everything, but you can catch up on the full recap here. In any case, share your thoughts with us in the comments.

Smash Bros Katsuhiro Harada Masahiro Sakurai Kazuya

Tekken producer and Bandai Namco Entertainment general manager Katsuhiro Harada has commented on how Sakurai worked to bring Kazuya to Smash Bros. Ultimate, ultimately stating that “he’s probably the only one that could properly make that game.”

Harada thought Sakurai would ask questions to make sure the character was represented properly, but he “already had his own thoughts about what makes Tekken ‘Tekken.'” This is in part due to how familiar Sakurai was with the series. Harada was impressed by how much Sakurai knows about so many different gaming IPs and having them all integrated into Smash Bros. so successfully.

Splatoon 3 datamine new Salmon Run modes events

Splatoon 3 dataminers have been picking apart the game, and seem to have made some interesting discoveries regarding Salmon Run.

Twitter user OatmealDome says that “Pair”, “Underground”, and “Contest” have been spotted. In fact, Pair and Underground will apparently have their own pay grades and titles. Underground is said to have higher quotas (per wave: +3 / +5 / +7) than normal. OatmealDome does also note that what was found here could also be occasional events like Big Run.
