There's a hole in my bucket dear Liza, dear Liza...

http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/news/53860/crystal-chronicles-remaster-experiences-august-27-release

Seemingly the last post-SNES Final Fantasy to be remastered finally has a release date for Switch.

Square Enix have confirmed August 27 as the worldwide launch date for Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered. No word has been given regarding a physical Switch release for North America or Europe, though one will be available in Japan.

The remastered version of the 2003 GameCube/GBA connectivity title will feature cross-platform online multiplayer between Switch, mobile platforms, and the PlayStation 4.

Her career took off in the last few years, but she has returned for the epilogue.

http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/news/53844/jenna-coleman-reprising-role-of-meila-in-xenoblade-chronicles-definitive-edition

The entire voice cast of Xenoblade Chronicles is returning for this week's Definitive Edition, including one actress who became a major star in the following years.

Jenna Coleman, who provided the voice of Princess Meila in the Nintendo of Europe-helmed dub of the original Xenoblade Chronicles, has been confirmed by the game's credits to be returning for the Definitive Edition; this includes new lines for the Future Connected epilogue.

In the years following the original dub release of Xenoblade Chronicles, Coleman became known for portraying Clara Oswald, the companion of Doctor Who as portrayed by Matt Smith and later Peter Capaldi: her turn as the Doctor's companion is the longest in the history of the long-running science fiction series. Later, she would portray Queen Victoria in the ITV series Victoria, which aired in North America on PBS stations.

TalkBack / Adventure Platformer Hoa Announced For Switch
« on: May 26, 2020, 12:24:49 PM »

Chill out in a world that can safely be called "Ghibli-esque".

http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/news/53847/adventure-platformer-hoa-announced-for-switch

Switch owners looking to blow off stress later in the year will be able to explore a land of mystery and wonder.

Hoa was announced today as due for Switch release in "late 2020", according to developer Skrollcat Studios. The title character Hoa is trying to return to her homeland, but must explore a calm and magical world to get there.

Skrollcat specifically named the art of Studio Ghibli films as an inspiration for the game's graphics.

A true shocase of Shodown.

http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/news/53845/samurai-shodown-collection-launching-july-28-includes-unreleased-game

Originally expected to launch last fall, the Samurai Shodown collection for Switch is but a couple of months out.

The collection of fighters, officially known as the Samurai Shodown NeoGeo Collection, will hit Switch on July 28 with a MSRP of US$39.99. A retail version will be available in addition to the digital release.

The collection is a new product by retro compilation specialists Digital Eclipse (Mega Man Legacy Collection, SNK 40th Anniversary Collection), who have also included a version of Samurai Shodown V thought to have been lost in the collection.

Really not feeling the reluctance to reveal pricing this week.

http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/news/53830/nintendo-downloads-may-28-2020

Yo yo yo, pop a microSD card and clear your calendars it's REYN TIME* this week with the release of Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition. Adding a 10-15 hour prologue seems kind of counter-productive, but what do I know. I do know, however, that 2K is dropping six separate releases on the eShop this week, and we only know the price for one of them as of Monday. Joy.

In other news, this is a surprisingly big week for the eShop: we've also got OH HAY LOOK SHANTAE and the Seven Sirens for the Zach special, Minecraft Dungeons as the Hatsune Miku love expands to the third person looter genre, and... is that a Switch release of a 1991 PC game in the form of F-117A Stealth Fighter? So far, the Archives are represented by Thunder Force AC from Sega as we transition to a definitely not stealth fighter.

* RIP Shad Gaspard (1981 - 2020) and Hana Kimura (1997 - 2020)

TalkBack / Nintendo Sales Panic: April 2020 US NPD Group Results
« on: May 21, 2020, 11:53:48 PM »

These sales are sick.

http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/news/53802/nintendo-sales-panic-april-2020-us-npd-group-results

April's sales in the US have continued to make bell-fueled history, according to today's sales survey from the NPD Group.

All figures based on dollar sales from April 5 - May 3, unless otherwise noted.

The Switch maintained its position as the top selling console in April, and total console sales revenue increased by more than 160% compared to last April. Switch dollar sales through the end of April are the highest the NPD Group has ever tracked for the first four months of a year, beating the Wii's sales in January - April 2009. NPD did not reveal if the Lite/dockable split of sales (at $199/$299 US) would allow for the unit sales to be higher than the 2,373,200 units (at $249) reported for the Wii by the end of April 2009.

Software saw Square Enix's action rebuild Final Fantasy VII Remake take the top slot, with Animal Crossing: New Horizons holding in 3rd place combined for the month (without digital sales from Nintendo). The only other Nintendo exclusive game to make the top 20 combined was chart regular Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (16th), while third parties on Switch include NBA 2K20 (4th), Just Dance 2020 (11th), FIFA 20 (12th), and Mortal Kombat 11 (13th). The other major Switch retail debut for April, Square Enix's Trials of Mana, did make the Switch software top 10 and no other reported platform's.

The full Switch top 10:

  1. Animal Crossing: New Horizons
  2. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
  3. Just Dance 2020 (Ubisoft)
  4. Super Smash Bros Ultimate
  5. The Legend of Zelda; Breath of the Wild
  6. New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe
  7. Luigi's Mansion 3
  8. Pokemon Sword
  9. Trials of Mana (Square Enix)
  10. Super Mario Party

Because our hearts beat as one.

http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/news/53786/nintendo-downloads-may-21-2020

All right y'all, unite up. We got some downloads to go through, starting with the big game of the week: The Wonderful 101 Remastered. It's actually a Kickstarter success story in that they managed to go from campaign start to out in three months (even if the game was like, 99% done), but the comparisons to last year's Astral Chain suddenly make a lot of sense.

Other things worth watching: the just-dropped Five Nights At Freddy's VR game and Journey of the Savage Planet, the off the wall (and everything else) What the Golf, and Arrest of a stone Buddha which is the follow-up to The Friends of Ringo Ishikawa from the same developer. UPL's Raiders 5 is the ACA release, though I suppose Myst coming to its 15,000th platform could also count.

TalkBack / Journey To The Savage Planet Begins Today On Switch

TalkBack / LEGO Mario Set Adds Power-Up Outfits For Mario

Flying, yes. Squirrel based, no.

http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/news/53789/lego-mario-set-adds-power-up-outfits-for-mario

It won't just be regular Super Mario in this summer's LEGO set, unless you want it to.

LEGO and Nintendo have announced a series of "Power Up Packs" that will allow for the replacing of the classic Mario outfit with four power-up based designs. The packs will be available for Fire, Propeller, Builder, and Cat Mario.

The Power Up Packs will be available on August 1 and can be preordered from the official LEGO store and Walmart in the US.

This is going to end up with the entire team cheering as an Edelgard cutout starts looking like the owner in Major League.

http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/feature/53771/creating-the-garreg-mach-knights-in-super-mega-baseball-3

Edelgard Hresvelg had a problem. And it was personal.

As the general manager of the newest team in the Super Mega Baseball league, she had to try and keep a team together who, largely speaking, hated her guts. Most of them stuck around out of some loyalty to either a teammate or manager Byleth “Professor” Eisner, who managed to charm a good portion of the roster with her winning history managing the AAA Arianrhod Lions. But this was the big leagues, and her job was to put butts every 18 inches. How to do that? Just win, baby.

With a little help from chief scout Hubert Vestra, this was the team who was looking to outshine the Diamondbacks of MLB and the NHL’s own (Golden) Knights to win the league pennant in their inaugural season.

Retail workers will probably hate one of the free features.

http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/news/53779/moonlighter-expansion-between-dimensions-dropping-may-29

Moonlighter's biggest expansion yet is coming at the end of next week.

The "Between Dimensions" expansion will come to Switch on May 29, 2020 for US$6.99 or equivalent. The corresponding update will include free updates for all owners including new thieves, an indecisive customer, and an annoying bird.

The paid portion of the expansion will require players to beat the game to access, and will include a new dungeon, new enemies, and new weapons and armor including trick gear.

TalkBack / New Additions To NES And SNES Online Libraries Announced

Rygar! Panel de Pon! Exclamation points!

http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/news/53750/new-additions-to-nes-and-snes-online-libraries-announced

The NES and SNES libraries for Nintendo Switch Online subscribers will be expanding again on May 20.

Tecmo's 1987 action game Rygar will be the NES release for this update. The SNES library will add three games: Operation Logic Bomb, a 1993 overhead shooter from Jaleco which is also a sequel to the Game Boy's Fortified Zone, Natsume's side-scrolling shooter Wild Guns (a remastered version was released on Switch), and Panel de Pon: the last game is a technical Japanese import that was reskinned into Tetris Attack for Western markets and is now more likely known as Puzzle League.

The Japanese lineup will have Super Punch-Out, Panel de Pon, Rygar, and Rough World (localized as Journey to Silius).

They also put it back up for preorder with a release date of a week from Friday (the 22nd). Let's see if it sticks.

Please blame the following for the late posting: The PGA Tour, 2K, Nintendo, Bethesda, and my IRL employer.

http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/news/53734/nintendo-downloads-may-14-2020

This week's big, BIG release is the creation of the Garreg Mach Knights in Super Mega Baseball 3, a game that might win this site's GotY by default when I stage a bloodless coup. (Though Neal might back me up on this, based on his review.) Other big things this week: the shock shadowdrop of Elder Scrolls Blades we discussed earlier today, Minecraft creator Hatsune Miku's latest jump into the rhythm genre comes west, and 3D Realms actually finishing a console game for the first time since I was still in university.

Some smaller things worth keeping an eye on: Oddworld Munch's Oddysee if only to justify the fits it gives my spellcheck, Jet Lancer is the first game I ever sold someone on reviewing by posting a GIF in a chatroom, and Huntdown has been getting buzz in certain quarters as a quality shooter. Your obligatory Hamster release is 1982 Nichibutsu shooter Radical Radial.

Japan gets Tennis and a Sega ACA game (Thunder Force AC) that you won't have to wait long to import: it comes out outside Japan on the 28th.

What if golf didn't use balls AND was simultaneous multiplayer?

http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/news/53688/may-21-forcing-us-to-ask-what-the-golf

What The Golf? has finally nailed down its tee time.

Looks like mind tricks AND money won't work to start the race tomorrow.

http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/news/53687/star-wars-episode-i-racer-switch-release-delayed-at-last-moment

One of this week's hyped releases has had to pull into the pits right before its green flag.

Aspyr Media have had to delay the release of Star Wars: Episode I Racer that was originally slated for tomorrow (May 12). Delays in adjusting to work from home are being cited for the delay.

No release date has been given for the remake of the 1999 racing classic.

If you're looking for Star Wars day, that was yesterday on the revenge of the 5th.

http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/news/53677/nintendo-downloads-may-7-2020

It's an interesting week for the eShop if only because of some of the games up for grabs. The headliner is the Indie MIX published Jay and Silent Bob-themed NES brawler Mall Brawl, just because who would have expected a Jay and Silent Bob licensed game in 2020? There's also the evil-sounding Void Bastards if you need a bit more of a slower pace, the game mashup (literally) SuperMash, and serene bike rider Lonely Mountains: Downhill.

The Spaceballs spinoff game comes next week, but the Archives provide a little bit of sci-fi today with Magmax. More people are probably familiar with it in the NES version, however.

Japan's got a typical week - surprising for the end of Golden Week - with a VN, a few late drops, and some piecemeal ArcSys games.

So much money Nintendo could probably buy an island.

http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/news/53671/nintendo-releases-fiscal-year-earnings-and-guidance-for-next-year

Nintendo issued their full year financial results for the period of April 1, 2019 -> March 31, 2020 overnight, with some big numbers for the company admist the COVID-19 pandemic.

Hardware Sales

3DS: 60,000 units shipped in the quarter, new LTD 75.77m. Notably, Nintendo is not providing a forecast for 3DS sales (see below).

Software Highlights

The past quarter saw the launch of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, which shipped (to retail + sold digitally) 11.77m copies in the eleven days left in the fiscal year following its March 20 launch. Due to COVID-19 restrictions Nintendo confirmed in a follow-up call that the game's sales were now 13.41m units, making it the best selling game in the series after about a month and a half.

The quarter's other major debut was Pokémon Mystery Dungeon Rescue Team DX, which shipped 1.26m copies following the March 6 launch.

Splatoon 2 and Super Mario Party both crossed the 10m shipment mark this quarter.

Projections

Due to the pandemic disrupting operations, Nintendo is projecting revenue of ¥1,200b yen, operating profit of ¥300m yen, and net profit of ¥200m yen for the coming fiscal year. The only platform to receive projections for 2020-21 is the Switch, with projected hardware sales of 19m units and software sales of 140m (compared to 21.03m and 168.72m of each for the prior year).

The only announced new software for the coming year is Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition, Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Games, two Famicom Detective Club games (JP only), and Bravely Default II (rest of world only). Bayonetta 3, Metroid Prime 4, and the sequel to Breath of the Wild are still "TBA". The Pokémon Sword and Shield Expansion Pass, the second Fighter's Pass for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and Animal Crossing: New Horizons updates are also planned.

Nintendo did not give an indication as to when additional announcements would be made for new releases beyond this quarter, citing disruption to the work both in Japan and with overseas partners.

We've got a former character of World Championship Wrestling here. Not Glacier, however.
