The Final Splatfest Asks “Who is the Better Squid Sister?”

June 30th, 2016 | Category: Uncategorized

Splatfest Callie Marie

After more than a year of spraying ink and claiming territory in the name of one side or another, the final Splatfest in Splatoon has arrived and it wants to know: Are you on Team Callie or Team Marie?

You will be able to cast your vote beginning at 7 p.m. PT on July 4, but that’s not the only thing you will get to vote for. Nintendo will be sending out emails to Splatoon players with Nintendo Network IDs asking them which stages they would like to play on for the final Splatfest.

The battle begins at 2 a.m. PT on July 22 and goes until 2 a.m. PT on July 24. While this Splatfest will take place at roughly the same time in all regions, it will be partially region-locked. Japanese players will only play against other Japanese players, while European and North American players will be able to play against each other.

Final results from all regions will be collected individually, but they will be combined and announced at the same time.

Miyamoto: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Needs to Sell 2 Million Copies to be Profitable

June 29th, 2016 | Category: Uncategorized

Zelda_E3_11am_SCRN061

Nintendo has invested a lot into The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The game has been in development for more than five years and has a team of more than 100 people working on it, with at least 300 people listed in its credits. In order for the game to be profitable, it needs to sell at least 2 million copies worldwide. This is according to what Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto told investors at a Q&A meeting yesterday.

All the work being put into Breath of the Wild will also be beneficial to future titles. General Manager of Nintendo’s Entertainment Planning & Development division Shinya Takahashi added that the company can use resources from Zelda for other titles, which can help reduce development times.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is scheduled to launch next year for the Wii U and NX.

Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Fan Patch Brings Back Swimsuit Costumes

June 28th, 2016 | Category: Uncategorized

Tokyo Mirage Sessions Fan Patch

Several changes were made to Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE for its English release. Among them were the aging up of characters and costumes made to be less revealing. The latter change actually led to the second chapter of the game being heavily modified from being about bikini modeling to just regular fashion modeling.

For those not satisfied with the changes, there is a fan-made patch that aims to revert the game’s content so it is closer to the original Japanese release. The latest version makes the following changes:

  • Reverted costumes back to Bikini’s, also changing the menu icons back and their original names and descriptions.
  • Completely redid Chapter 2 and a few other small files to return references to Gravure Modelling, this also uses the original voice files.
  • Fixed any map changes relating to pictures in dungeons that were changed.
  • Swapped the English files out for Japanese versions for retranslated files.
  • Healing points no longer come in envelopes.
  • Changed Profiles to reflect the character’s real ages and change back references to Gravure Modeling.
  • Reverted any censored prerendered Cutscene files.

The patch will not work with a disc of Tokyo Mirage Sessions, so extra work is required to create a dump of the game. Detailed instructions on how to set everything up are available on GBAtemp. It is heavily recommended that you read it all before actually attempting to apply the patch.

Makers of Mario Is An Fan Alternative to the Super Mario Maker Bookmark Site

June 28th, 2016 | Category: Uncategorized

Makers of Mario Site

The Super Mario Maker Bookmark site isn’t necessarily a bad way to look for levels to play in Super Mario Maker, but the fans believe they can do it better.

Makers of Mario is a community fansite currently in beta that not only gives players a way to look for user-created levels, but a way to create and share their own custom playlists, which they call Worlds.

“[Worlds] are collections of levels, they can all be your levels, or you can make a collection of your favorite creators levels and put them all in once place. You can even bookmark each level at once (if you link your cookie)… our Worlds when created, cannot be modified. We want to encourage players to fight for the top spot on Worlds and speed past each other breaking each other’s records, so for this we cannot let a user modify a World once it is published. To do so would take away one of the features we seeing being a crowd favorite.”

More features are also coming in the future, like Races. The site staff isn’t ready to talk about how Races will work just yet, but they plan to explain everything when the feature gets added soon.

7th Dragon III Code VFD 00

New stuff usually gets added to the eShop on Thursdays, but that is not the case for the 7th Dragon III Code: VFD demo because it is out today.

The demo is limited to 30 uses and gives you a pre-made party that caps out at level 10. Transferring your demo save over to the full game when it comes out on July 12 will net you some bonuses, like all of the skill points you earned and some starter equipment.

SEGA hints that there is another reward, but you will have to play to find out what it is.

[Update] Zero Time Dilemma Pre-Order Watches Delayed Due to Shipping Damage, Game to Ship on Time

June 27th, 2016 | Category: Uncategorized

[Update: There are delays on Amazon orders due to supply issues:

]

Anyone who pre-ordered the bonus watch edition of Zero Time Dilemma from Amazon or GameStop will have to wait a few weeks to get their replica timepiece. Aksys Games confirmed that the watches were damaged during transit, requiring them to be sent back to the factory.

Copies of the game appear to be unaffected, so they will ship out this week, as originally intended. Replacement watches will ship out sometime later with a bonus gift for the inconvenience.

Aksys is currently in talks with Amazon to clarify the exact situation and hope to have some answers for anyone affected by the end of today.
