One of the most surprising announcements to come out of Nintendo’s E3 Direct was that not only would the long-awaited Seiken Densetsu 3 would be getting an official localization with the fresh title Trials of Mana, which dropped right there and then as part of the Mana Collection, but it would also be seeing a fully 3D remake next year.

The game has been playable at Gamescom for the past few days and the guys over at 4Gamer have uploaded some direct feed capture of the PS4 version demo. Check out the battles below:
 


 
The Trials of Mana remake is set to launch in early 2020.

The past few days have been filled with news regarding Mario & Sonic’s next Olympic outing, and this latest trailer out of Japan is one of the lengthiest yet, highlighting everything from basic events to the story mode.
 

 
And what a story mode it is – it looks like the cast is heading back in time to the 1964 Tokyo Olympics in their pixelated form, complete with some adorable looking retro cutscenes.

Not only that but we see the return of Dream Events, including one where you skate down Sonic Forces’ Metropolitan Highway, and some minigames, like a side-scrolling shooter where Mario pilots Tails’ Tornado bi-plane and another where you have to pick out characters on the famous Shibuya crossing.

You’ll be able to experience all this content once Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 launches on November 5th in North America and on November 8th in Europe.

Campers, I think it’s time for a change — a hair change! Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is giving all of us six new wigs to choose from in the Wiggin’ Out Collection. From a short spiky wig to a side-ponytail wig sporting a cute braid, you can completely recreate your character using one of the fun styles.

Have a look at the full wig list:

For all you longtime Animal Crossing players, you’ve got to admit that it’s been nice finally getting lots of new hair options after all these years! Hopefully this means that we’ll also be getting more eye styles and colors sometime in the future.

These wigs are part of an event collection, meaning you’re going to have to trade in some of those sweet Leaf Tickets if you wanna sport that new ‘do. Each wig costs somewhere between 120 and 160 Tickets, which might seem a bit hefty to some — so make sure to choose wisely!

You’ve got 29 days until the collection leaves that Craft tab. Have fun stylin’, campers!

Previously when it comes to Sega Ages coverage for Switch, I spent a long while gushing over OutRun, both as it’s presented in this new lineup and in its place in history of the games and its genre. Its ability to simulate depth and speed while putting your reflexes to the test is legendary, but it wasn’t the only one of Sega’s arcade endeavors to do so. Dip just another year back to 1985 and you’ll be Welcomed to the Fantasy Zone by its Sega AM2 predecessor and groundbreaking rail shooter — Space Harrier.

Growing out of its own predecessor, Hang On, Space Harrier was impressive both on a technical and visual level, and it instantly made an impression in arcades via its unique cockpit cab. To put it another way, it was Sega doing what they did best at the time. You’d play as a human armed with a massive space cannon, flying freely in the field of view as enemies and obstacles made their way from the horizon to the foreground. What you encounter ranges from giant mushroom, to moai heads, to dragons, mammoths, and many more oddities to shoot down and avoid on your way to the next level.

That strangeness is a big part of the game’s charm, but what keeps me coming back for more is just how tight and satisfying the game is to control. Your forward velocity is locked at what might seem, at first, to be too fast to handle, but in time that speed helps define this one. Enemy placement and rate is fair, and your shots have a degree of homing based on where they are relative to you. Farther away aim is a bigger factor, but once enemies are up close it becomes a game about timing. Managing that while also avoiding obstacles speeding towards you and shifting your strategy for bosses and special stages is exciting and addicting, making this a great pick-up-and-play kind of game.

There are some features here that set the Ages version apart. On a content level, you’re getting what was included in the also great 3D Classics version of Space Harrier on 3DS. The display options and inclusion of an end boss help keep this up to M2’s previous standard, though they did add some new things exclusively for this Switch release. For one, you can play using your Joy-Con in place of the arcade cab’s joystick controls. It takes some getting used to and I was never able to reach the kind of precision I wanted with the feature, but it definitely works. It’s one of the more unique uses of a Joy-Con I’ve encountered up to this point.

Also included is a new Komainu Barrier Attack mode. Here you’re flanked by two Komainu that will destroy anything in your path with the exception of enemy fire. It lets you focus less on positioning and more on firing, making it a great option for anyone that wants a less demanding experience. There’s still some nuance to it, though, as the Komainu can be incapacitated if they’re struck, making you vulnerable for a brief window. As you’re a wider target with them flanking you, even those familiar with the game will have some new nuances to discover. All in all, it’s a solid addition for both veterans and first-time fliers.

While I haven’t found myself as addicted to it like I was to OutRun, Sega Ages Space Harrier is easily one of the stronger additions to the line and one I fully recommend. As a high speed, high score driven arcade game it’s practically made for grabbing your Switch and seeing how well you can do on a run. That’s not even getting into the excellent soundtrack, which you can listen to at your leisure in the menu. You can grab it (as well as Sega Ages Puyo Puyo) starting tomorrow, August 22nd.

For those of you excited to jump into the new adventure in Pokémon Sword & Shield, a new experience will soon be available to you in real life. That’s right: your time in the world of ‘mon will be extended to locations spread out all over the US!

Nintendo’s just announced a promotional campaign that will bring a series of pop-up tourism locations called “Galar Visitor Centers” to select cities across the US. These locales will give fans the opportunity to learn more about Galarian culture and participate in regional activities — including taking passport photos, speaking with “tour guides” to learn more about the region, playing at stations that host Sword & Shield on Switch, and receiving special themed items (while supplies last).

“Discovering a new region is part of the fun of diving into a new Pokémon adventure,” said Nick Chavez, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “With this tourism-themed activity, we want fans of all ages to explore the region and learn about the people, places and things that make Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield so special.”

The first Visitor Center will open in Seattle, at PAX West 2019, at the Washington State Convention Center. Fans can stop in between August 30th and September 2nd to learn more about Sword & Shield. The second stop for the pop-up Visitor Center will be the Los Angeles County Fair, where it’ll be open on September 11th and 14th. And the third announced location is the State Fair of Texas from October 10th to the 14th.

Hopefully we’ll see more stops for the tour announced after the initial three have wrapped up so even more players will be able to experience the Galar region in person. We’ll make sure to report back with info about any other locations in the future!

As the release date for The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening draws closer, more and more details have been surfacing about the game from various Nintendo outlets. Info about what we can expect from the gameplay isn’t the only thing worth getting excited over though, as the visuals for Link’s revamped adventure are also prime examples of how an old Game Boy game getting the shiny Switch treatment make the pickup extra worth it.

Most recently, the official Japanese Zelda account on Twitter shared a new render from Awakening. While Mabe Village resident Madam MeowMeow might be a bit more minor of a character to spotlight to some players, longtime fans can appreciate how this updated appearance looks next to the ancient pixelated version. Getting a closer peek at MeowMeow’s trusty companion, Chain Chomp Bow-Wow is a bonus!

Have a look at a comparison:

Sure, you might have to really squint to see the differences… but let me reaffirm that Madam MeowMeow’s design has most definitely been given a facelift. (Ha!)

The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening releases on September 30th, which is nearly a month away! Expect to see more updates from Nintendo Wire as the day nears, as I’m sure we’ll be seeing more details and renders pop up from Nintendo in the coming weeks.

You can pre-order your copy of the game on Amazon today!

While Mortal Kombat 11 has been out for several months, NetherRealm Studios has been releasing characters one by one in the Kombat Pack season pass. Old man wizard Shang Tsung was first, followed by the recently released Nightwolf. Today, the team revealed the rest of the pack in a new video. Among the roster is fan-favorite Sindel, along with Spawn, a Terminator T-800 that looks like he might have been mocapped by Arnold himself, and Batman’s best friend Joker. Scorpion, Raider, and Sub-Zero all appeared in the Injustice games by the same studio, but this marks the first time a DC character has appeared in Mortal Kombat.
 

 
The remaining characters and their anticipated release dates are:

  • Terminator T-800: October 8
  • Sindel: November 26
  • Joker: January 28
  • Spawn: March 17

This also matches early datamines that revealed the entire slate of DLC characters, although this list doesn’t include everyone in the leak.

SPOILERS FOR POSSIBLE FUTURE DLC

The previous leak also listed Sheeva, Fujin, and Ash from the Evil Dead franchise as upcoming characters. They might be coming as a surprise release with the Kombat Pack, or perhaps as a second pack all together. A previous DLC trailer featured the sounds of a chainsaw at the end, which would lend credence to the inclusion of Ash.

END SPOILERS

Although it’s a pretty lengthy wait to get all of these fighters in the game, it is still cool to see Mortal Kombat getting to include so many classic film characters. Plus, this will make MK11 the second best fighting game to feature Spawn!

With Puyo Puyo Tetris and Puyo Puyo Champions both available on Switch and other platforms, there’s been something of a revival for the puzzle brand here in America. Quite popular in Japan, to the point of having a dedicated eSports scene and televised tournaments, Sega has been letting the series shine in its own right instead of dressing it up with other properties. The Mean Beans may be living on via the Genesis Mini (and in one of Sonic Mania’s best moments), but for the Sega Ages line we’re getting the arcade Puyo Puyo as it was in its original form. That means Arle and Carbuncle puzzling it out with a lineup of strange faces all along the way to Satan the Dark Prince himself.

For me, the biggest draw of Sega Ages Puyo Puyo is the inclusion of the rare, translated arcade mode. With its own English voiceover for combos, some character name changes, and a whole lot of silly dialogue, it’s a lot of fun and shows the game’s Madou Monogatari roots. For purists the Japanese version is also available with a quick menu swap. The speed ramps up pretty quickly in single-player, making for an interesting contrast with the cute cast that kept me coming back to see more and push further forward. Thankfully, with save states and other tweakable mechanics, that won’t be as daunting a task as it sounds, adding further value to the Ages version.

What sets the first Puyo Puyo apart from later entries on a fundamental level is the absence of offsetting. In games past this, popping Puyo would stall the opponent’s attack and keep garbage from filling up your window. Pop a long enough chain, and you even negate it entirely or send back a stronger one. That back and forth has gone on to help define the series, and without it the game becomes more of a race to trigger the biggest chain first or to block off your opponent’s own chains before they happen, rather than giving you a chance to defend and reflect that rewards thoughtful building rather than rapid. It makes this Puyo Puyo a different flavor of a familiar treat, though some of the back and forth nature of the game is lost in the process. There are a few mechanical additions though, like more options for rotating Puyo pairs that weren’t added until later entries (this can also be toggled if you want the game as it was).

Speaking of additions, online multiplayer is here as are leaderboards. If you’re out to show your skill at the OG version of the game this is the place to go, though for a more thriving scene with more variety of play I’d point you to Puyo Tet or Champions. It’s still a great addition, though, especially for what could’ve been just a straightforward re-release. Likewise, you’ll find the expected borders and visual options, to give your screen a little Puyo flair and bring back those scanlines like it’s 1992. As far as performance, things ran great and make for another example of M2’s porting mastery.

I recommend Sega Ages Puyo Puyo mostly to those who’re interested in the series’ history or those who want a rare piece of puzzle game history via its translated single-player. For competitively minded players, the loss of offsetting fundamentally changes things no matter how much I love the classic look. For $7.99 it’s certainly worth it regardless, though if you’re planning on grabbing the Genesis Mini soon, keep in mind it’s possible to swap Mean Bean to Puyo Puyo by toggling to the Japanese version (though that’ll be the untranslated version). This has me most hopeful for when Sega Ages tackles Puyo Puyo Tsu, the game that introduced offsetting and really built up the series’ popularity — but until then, this is still a welcome piece of my retro Switch library.

In just over a month, Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age – Definitive Edition will finally launch for the Nintendo Switch. As part of Gamescom, Nintendo of Europe has released a massive 35 minute long video spotlighting the game alongside series creator Yuji Horii and producer Hokuto Okamoto. In it, we see a variety of locations, get a glimpse of the 2D gameplay mode, and briefly journey to past Dragon Quest worlds.
 

 
Not only that but the video concludes with the confirmation that a demo is now available via the Switch eShop, with potentially over 10 hours of content! Then you can transfer your save data over once Dragon Quest XI S launches on September 27th.

Finally, if you have save data from either the demo or the full game, you can unlock a Tockle spirit in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. That’s a lot of Dragon Quest goodness in one day!
