Alm must duel the one he loves the most - and according to the fanfics, that would be Lukas.

It's a busy few days for strategy RPGs, as the big game of this week is Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. We've got two reviews (Daan, Bryan) for the strategy RPG hit that I'm already in for a hundred on even before DLC is considered. Now, if only I could get it before Wednesday grumble grumble...

There's a fair few other reviews to check out this week: Casey talked Cooking Mama: Sweet Shop, Justin Nation will be by with a Thumper review around the time it hits the NA eShop, and in the older department Danny Bivens reviewed 3DS eShop title Drancia Saga last year when it released in Japan. The retro front this week is TG-16 shooter Blazing Lazers (sic) on the Wii U and another SNK fighter on Switch in Galaxy Fight.

Europe gets Super Star Soldier (fashionbly late) on the Wii U VC and Japan picks up Battle Sports Mekkuru, the Mendel Palace-looking title introed in last month's Nintendo Direct. And don't forget to pick up your ARMS Global Testpunch download no matter what territory you're in.
