Music is prominent in our day to day lives because of the amount of emotions it can give us. Whether it’s sadness, happiness, anger – it can illicit memories and induce feelings, creating moments that stay with you for the rest of time and take you out of the moment and into another space. For musicians, this is a lifestyle, not just a hobby, and the wonderful thing about games like Guitar Hero, Rock Band, and Dance Dance Revolution is that they make feeling like a musician – regardless of whether you have talent or an affinity for instruments and the craft – a lot more accessible to the masses by handing them peripherals to make the immersion that much more real. With Gal Metal, no peripherals are needed, as your life as a drummer begins as soon as you pick up your Joy-Con and start tapping away with the motion, hitting at imaginary drums as you try to save the world from an alien invasion with the power of metal. It’s a lot of fun when it feels good, however the accuracy, timing, and calibration more often than not are off-tempo, even if you’re not, making it for an imaginative but somewhat lackluster experience.

XSEED announced this week that Fate/Extella Link is coming to North America in Q1 2019. Better yet, it’ll be accompanied by a special release. Amazon is taking pre-orders for the Fleeting Glory Limited Edition here.

The limited edition comes with a few extra goodies. Fans will be given the game, a soundtrack CD, a pack of 10 collectible cards depicting each of the new Servants, a cloth poster, and an acrylic diorama all housed in a custom box.

If limited editions aren’t your thing, you can also pre-order a standard copy of Fate/Extella Link on Switch here.

A rating for Corpse Party: Blood Drive for Nintendo Switch has popped up on the ESRB’s website. While not officially confirmed yet, this usually means that a release of the game is coming up sometime soon. Corpse Party: Blood Drive was initially released for Playstation Vita in 2014; a version of the game for mobile phones has also come out since. The ESRB gave the Switch version an M rating for “Blood, Partial Nudity, Strong Language, Suggestive Themes, Violence”. Here’s the ESRB’s description of the game:

This is a survival-horror adventure game in which players help students escape a haunted school. From an over-head perspective, players traverse environments, avoid monsters, and interact with various objects and characters. Cutscenes sometimes depict various acts of violence: a man stabbing himself with a knife; a character crucified and burned. Violence is also described in text (e.g., “She continued to hack at me, again and again. . . From behind me, I could hear the sound of blood gushing into the air from the gaping hole above my neck”). Blood is frequently depicted near corpses and when characters are injured. During the course of the game, a handful of sequences depict characters whose nude bodies are partially obscured by lights, steam, and/or other body parts. Some sequences are accompanied by suggestive dialogue (e.g.,“Not that I’d expect you to be too turned on by these raisins o’mine,” “Hey, stop jiggling them,” “And where do you think you’re touching?! Those are my boobs!”). The words “f**k” and “sh*t” are heard in dialogue.
