@Blaze Persona Q's release date was only different by a few days in both regions. Persona 4: Dancing All Night is set to launch in roughly the same time frame as well. I'm hoping the next MegaTen game launches in the same way, as SMTIV's European release was a total fiasco. Not acceptable in the twenty-first century, imo.

We have every right to complain about this, just as you lot have every right to complain about Atlus and its rough history of working with Europe. As to this crazy grudge you seem to have about a game that released 20 years ago... get over it. It was the 90s. I don't understand how this is even relevant at all.

Europe has New 3DS, way nicer Nintendo releases (with special editions Americans never see), multiple games and VC releases that arrive months earlier than they do in the U.S., and several Wii games that never made it over here at all.

The delay of the U.S. release of YWW has been annoying me. Perhaps I'll put the money I was planning on spending on that toward this game instead. It looks nice, and I'd rather support a publisher that prioritizes U.S. releases.

I imagine Nintendo might release paid DLC level packs in the future, which is completely OK with me, to be honest. The bulk of the game, aside from the levels that come with it, will be user-created content anyway.

I wonder if they'll station armed troops around the Best Buy, too. It's hilarious how rigid and controlled Amiibo distribution is becoming. I think I'll lay off until Nintendo gets its act together with these things and actually prints enough that all of its fans can buy them.

@Damo
While I doubt Itagaki's words are anything other than damage control about a sloppily-produced product, you're acting like an angry fanboy and have started attacking people who are commenting on your article. You're taking this whole thing personally. People could sense it in the article, and you're making it crystal clear in the comments. You need to stop writing about this game, for the time being, as you don't seem to be able to maintain professional distance from it.

God, don't even joke about that. :P The last thing the Wii U needs is to be the only Nintendo console without a real Zelda release. I just hope, if it does have a dual launch on NX and Wii U, that it isn't gimped on the latter.

Too bad another Metroid Prime is years away from happening, at best. :(
I'd actually be satisfied with another 2D Metroid, though. It'd be a great way to send off the 3DS.

Yeah, the games have many praiseworthy aspects. Bumping music, surprisingly decent stories, loveable characters with interesting back stories, fun action gameplay. I totally get how a person might feel uncomfortable playing them, considering the fan service aspect, but it annoys me when some people act like anything involving nudity or sexual themes has to be trying to distract from mediocre gameplay.

Granted, the performance of the games isn't perfect (ESPECIALLY Burst), but these problems are being addressed in the sequels. I played SK2 enough on my Japanese cart to know that it is a VAST improvement over the original. I'd go so far as to say that it rivals Shinovi Versus (the first series entry on the PS Vita) in terms of how fluid and graphically impressive it is.

@DarthNocturnal Or... because you like fan service in addition to decent gameplay? Not everyone feels guilty or disgusted by this sort of thing.

I understand if someone is uncomfortable with the level of cheesecake in these games, but I hope we don't hear as much from the insufferable moralists who ranted about Burst.

I won't deny that the fanservice factors into my enjoyment of these games, but I certainly wouldn't keep buying them if they weren't fun to play. The fact that the gameplay mechanics and performance keep improving is another big draw. This game plays way smoother than Burst, and Estival Versus is a smoother gameplay experience than Shinovi Versus. They're actually concerned with improving on the non-fanservice-related aspects of these games.

Also, the attitude the games have about the fanservice is important. I don't actually enjoy playing games like DoA Xtreme 2 because they feel creepy and voyeuristic. SK games feel... playful and lighthearted, in contrast. Also, DoA Xtreme 2 is a good example of a fanservice game that has AWFUL gameplay. I haven't gone back to it since the first time I played it.

Also, forgot to add that this was a really good interview. Good job, Nintendo Life!

Sega needs to lay off the hedgehog for a while. It is clear that they have long since run out of interesting ideas for the franchise, and, as any reasonable person knows, you're not going to get any water out of a dry well.

It NEEDS to be able to run games like The Witcher 3 and Batman: Arkham Knight if it is going to have any hope of hosting any third-party software on it. And third-party games certainly aren't going to get less complex and flashy over time.

I love the multiplayer in Mario Kart, Smash, and Splatoon. But I still hate the multiplayer focus of Nintendo's new releases. I'm pretty sure I'm skipping Triforce Heroes, Federation Force, and Amiibo Festival entirely.
