@DarthNocturnal
Well, ya they said it wasn't happening the moment they confirmed the online would be via a phone app.

Seems they specifically do not want it on their console, probably so if somebody gets harassed they've got a buffer zone and say it happened on the phone rather than their family friendly system. Honestly I don't know why, but that would be my guess.

We do know they said it was going to be via a phone app. Unless they plan to do a complete 180 about face, that's what it's going to be. Just like the limited app for Splatoon 2, only with more features. I wouldn't rule it out entirely because there's always the remote chance they've changed their minds but, I'm certainly not counting on it

One thing I really hope for with the newer, younger president is that we'll finally get a 180˚ turnaround on old backwards things like Nintendo's policy on online and YouTube/Twitch content ID claims.

It may not happen, but with new leadership and new, younger management I hope they get out of their old ways.

Metroid, Xenoblade, EarthBound shill

I run a YouTube/Twitch channel for fun. Check me out if you want to!

Please let me know before you send me a FC request, thanks.

Since Nintendo removed Region Lock for Switch, i wonder if Shuntaro Furukawa will Remove Region Lock for 3DS. Should Nintendo keep their Old policy for 3DS ? I think No More Region Lock is the Best Option.

My Top 6 games :
1. Dance Dance Revolution series (99)
2. Dragon Quest Builders 2 PS4/Switch (95)
3. The Sims 4 PS4 + All contents (93)
4. Portal Knights PS4 (90)
5. Final Fantasy VIII PS1 (90)
6. Animal Crossing New Leaf: Welcome Amiibo 3DS (89)

Oh, btw.
Speaking about 2D Platformer, Super Princess Peach NDS was my Favorite.
I finished that game until 99.99% contents unlocked.

What made you stop? I'm not much of a 'completionist' myself - but if I'd have made it all the way to 99.99% completion, I think I'd have felt obliged to polish off the remaining 0.01%!

For Super Princess Peach, i still have 1 more enemy that i haven't found yet to make my Enemy Glossary 100%.
It was a creature like Starfish that i have to found them at 3 different places.
But i still haven't meet that starfish. So my completition was stil 99.99%.

@Anti-Matter I don’t think the 3DS will ever be region free. If Nintendo had planned to do so, it would have happened by now. Plus it would probably require too much resources for little rewards.

@Anti-Matter It's too late for the 3DS, it would not be worth redoing contracts and licensing for most if not all games just for the sake of being region free. Iwata stated that there were "hurdles" stopping the 3DS from being region free, and if it was possible he would have pushed for it.

Most people are not bothered by it and those who like to import can buy an original 3DS from any region for a decent price. Homebrew and Citra are also an option but they aren't exactly legal...

@JaxonH, regarding you're inquiry about the lack of physical release for the One Piece games in NA, the series never took off in the region like Dragon Ball & Naruto did (all three are popular in JP & EU, but only the latter two really broke out in NA).

The amount of games coming in May that appeal to me is insane. I already knew it was going to be a packed month but having just watched a video of all the confirmed titles puts it into perspective.

The ones that I'll be getting for sure

Runner 3
Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection
Little Nightmares
Raging Justice
Hyper Sentinel
Trailblazers
Immortal Redneck
Pixel Junk Monsters 2
Tennis World Tour (please be good)
Garage
Death Road to Canada
Yesterday Origins
Punch Club
Moonlighter
Sly Spy
Stakes Winner
Super Sidekicks 2
Baseball Stars Professional
Mega Man Legacy 1&2 (Not a fan but the low price makes them hard to resist)

Ones for a later date
Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze
Hyrule Warriors
Battle Chasers (maybe)

I'm pretty sure there will be some others I've either forgotten or don't know about yet will appear too. I can see packed months like this being the norm from now on,at least until the end of the year. I'm actually grateful for the Dark Souls delay.

@OorWullie
I haven't heard of a lot of those games, or they just haven't interested me (not the biggest indie fan, except for those that rise to the top).

But ya. I'm still trying to finish God of War before DKC comes out. Which I won't. So it and SouthPark will end up unfinished in backlog pergatory (but I will come back and finish at some point... I will... probably... hopefully)

And I know I'm getting DKC Tropical Freeze, Hyrule Warriors, Runner 3, Street Fighter Collection, Mega Man Legacy Collection 1/2, Little Nightmares Complete Edition, Tennis World Tour (agreed, please don't botch this one), Immortal Redneck (only because it has motion, that sealed the deal) and PixelJunk Monsters 2 (but that's a smaller indie game).

Dark Souls would have been nice, but it'll be just as good tomorrow as it would be today. When it comes, I'll be waiting.

BlazBlue Crosstag Battle drops June 6th I believe, and rolls right into Mario Tennis Aces which kicks off the summer jam lineup.

Yeah the number of high quality, prolific indie releases coming in May is pretty high.

Runner3, Pixel Junk Monsters 2, Death Road to Canada, Garage, Immortal Redneck, Hyper Sentinel, etc.

Good chance we see Lumines Remastered and Runbow too.

@IceClimbers
Runbow I like. Already own on Wii U but, grabbing physical for Switch, cause that's a game that makes perfect sense for tabletop co-op.

Lumines Remastered though I'm genuinely excited for. That's a great game for handhelds, and in fact made its name on handhelds. Shame it's not getting a physical release but, I'd rather have it on my system all the time anyways.

@JaxonH Yeah I had Runbow on Wii U too so I probably won't double dip right away. Lumines Remastered I'm definitely getting. That game instantly becomes one of the best puzzle games on the Switch, probably second best after Puyo Puyo Tetris.

Speaking of puzzle games, the upcoming Sushi Striker looks really good. A campaign with over 150 missions and fully voiced, animated cutscenes, gameplay that looks pretty addicting, etc. Basically a Puyo Puyo Tetris kind of package. It really needs a demo though.

Well....
If 3DS is still Region Lock, i guess i have to take a look again my shopping list for Japanese 3DS games.

1. Dance Dance Revolution series (99)
2. Dragon Quest Builders 2 PS4/Switch (95)
3. The Sims 4 PS4 + All contents (93)

@IceClimbers
I'm still trying to figure out what the heck is going on in Sushi Strikers. I have no idea what that game is about. I've seen gameplay and I still don't get it

So naturally I preordered it 😊

Diving headfirst into the unknown is what it's all about

@JaxonH Yeah I think most people are in the same boat of not knowing what's going on in Sushi Strikers. That's exactly why it absolutely needs a demo haha. From what I can tell it's basically a rapid fire puzzle game that looks really addicting.

South Park has climbed to number 15 in the US eShop rankings (and Naruto trilogy is I think top 10?)!

Interestingly, in the Japanese charts, Naruto 3 is really high up, but the trilogy is nowhere to be seen. On another note, I'm surprised how well western indie games tend to do in Japan. Human Fall Flat & Overcooked seem to have permanent residences in the top 15 (as does Minecraft, which frequently hits #1, but I'm not sure if you'd count it as indie), and even some recent "no name" western indie, Voxel Shot, has been on the chart since it launched (it's currently #4).

So, I almost double-dipped Bayonetta today. Was in EB games and they had a 'recycled' copy of it.
Asked the guy working about the download code for the other game. His reply was that they don't know, that they are reselling the cart only and they don't check to see if the code was used or not before reselling. It's literally a gamble if I buy it - code may work, code may not work. No warning on the label, nothing. Anyone could buy this, without checking, thinking they are getting both until they get home and the code doesn't work. I didn't buy it.
I know why they did it code-based, to force people to buy new and full price, but it's still a bogus system.
