Yo-Kai Watch Coming to the West Next Year

Category: Uncategorized

Youkai Watch 02

Level-5 CEO Akihiro Hino announced that the company is planning to release their popular RPG ghost-battling RPG Yo-Kai Watch in the West next year.

From an interview with Hino in zakzak.co.jp:

“In regards too foreign markets, we have been taking a look at it in regards to Yo-kai Watch. We are in development planning to release it sometime next year. We think it has a big appeal as a very Japanese-ish fantasy story. We already have support from a foreign toy maker company saying that it will be a definite success.”

The games have been doing incredibly well in Japan. The first Yo-Kai Watch managed to sell a million units in a little less than a year, and the sequel, Yo-Kai Watch 2: Ganso and Honke editions, did the same in its opening week.

The Pokémon Company is gearing up to announce a new project at 6 a.m. PST on August 26 on Niconico Live.

Little is known about what they will discuss. All that was said is that it will be a “shocking” new project in the Pokémon series.

People are speculating that it could be the long-awaited announcement of Pokkén Fighters, the rumored Pokémon fighting game for the Wii U, or even the Pokémon detective game that was said to be in the works since last year.

Two New Mega Evolutions Leaked on Official Korean Pokémon Site

Category: Uncategorized

Mega Slowbro Mega Audino

The official Korean Pokémon site accidentally revealed two new Mega Evolutions for Pokémon Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby: Mega Slowbro and Mega Audino.

The information was quickly taken down, but it’s already been reposted on Serebii.

Mega Slowbro gets the Shell Armor ability, which prevents it from taking critical hits. Mega Audino is a Normal/Fairy-type that has the Healer ability, which gives it a 30 percent chance to heal allies at the end of each turn in Double and Triple battles.

Announcement: Regarding the Future of Nine Inch Sandwich

Category: Uncategorized

I’m sad to say that, starting tomorrow, I will be unable to update Nine Inch Sandwich as frequently. I will be starting a new job and I won’t have the free time to post as often.

This doesn’t mean the site will be going down entirely. I’ll still try to post every day. It just that updates will probably be limited to one post per day. Also, due to the fact that I will be out for most of the day, it’s very likely I won’t be able to cover events like Nintendo Directs anymore.

I’m thankful to all of you that have visited the site up to this point. I feel like Nine Inch Sandwich has really helped to make me think critically about what it means to write for an audience. I would really like to continue doing what I’m doing, but that’s just sadly not in the cards right now.
