@Socar I think after the success of Link’s Awakening remake, and now the 3DS remaster of Miitopia coming to Switch, it’s possible that Nintendo are looking at these libraries as ways to create new content and selling and them at full price instead. It’s an easy money making business move.

@Magician IGN exclusive announcement revealed the western release date as March 4th.

@JaxonH

Gnosia is basically the same as Among Us, conceptually.

Gameplay is completely different though.

Gnosia is a single player, adventure, visual novel and not an online multiplayer party game.

Oh, March 4th is pretty soon. Guess I better pick up my pace in my playthrough of Corpse Party so I can finish it by then and play Gnosia at launch.

March 4th! Preorders open tomorrow, apparently.

Glad we finally have a date.

@BenAV The original Corpse Party?

@Ralizah Yep, first game. No announcement of a Western release yet so instead of waiting I decided to just grab it off the Japanese eShop as it has a 33% off launch sale there.

@Grumblevolcano Yay! We'll also see if there's any remixes. Sounds petty but as much as I love Pyra and Mythra in Smash, and believe me, I'm addicted to the series, less so for XC2, I don't play Smash, and I'm more excited about what remixes they have.

Nintendo seems to be heading straight for the weekly Nintendo news:

  • February 17th - General Direct
  • (Probably) February 26th - Pokemon Direct
  • March 4th - Pyra/Mythra showcase for Smash Ultimate
  • March 10th - Maybe a Mario announcement for MAR10 Day?

etc.

@Grumblevolcano Pokémon Company already confirmed they gonna do a presentation on Pokémon Day to showcase news regarding Pokémon 25th anniversary,(if you check Pokémon Twitter Acount, they are doing a countdown for the Pokémon Day, this seen to imply they gonna do a Pokémon Direct to showcase news regarding Pokémon 25th anniversary,)is good that now Nintendo is contantly doing news for it games and third party games coming to Switch, it seen that Nintendo is finally slowing recovering for the effects of the pandemics.

i like HD Rumble.

Grumblevolcano

@Giancarlothomaz I think Friday is more likely for a Pokemon Direct as in the past Pokemon Direct appeared on Friday when Pokemon Day was on a weekend.

@TheJGG It'll be interesting to see the balance between the games (from the trailer it looks like we're getting XC2 and XCDE music at the least). Hopefully XCX isn't avoided this time.

@Grumblevolcano I feel like Xenoblade X will be left out because it's not considered part of the mainline Xenoblade continuity, as far as we know. The music rocks, and honestly I'd love some Elma or Lin action, but that's that. And if we do get Definitive Edition music it'll be from Future Connected. If so expect the normal battle theme and the Fogbeast theme, both of which are just amazing, and'll fit right in.

Nintendo is going to port as many games off the Wii U as humanly possible. No way is XCX staying exclusive.

WHERE IS MY FATAL FRAME PORT, NINTENDO?

@Socar In the case of Miitopia, I doubt it was the devs just so happen to want to do it. Nintendo likely reached out to them as an experienced porting house that have an extensive working relationship with Nintendo and offered the contract.

@TheJGG I always thought they could easily retcon XBX in with the others. Where some humans got away before Klaus destroyed Earth or also alternatively he didn't use the Artifact at all and resulted in the events of XBX.

Word round the campfire is that Iron Galaxy has something in the works, almost ready for announcement. Iron Galaxy worked on the Switch ports for TES: Skyrim, Overwatch, Diablo III, etc. Shoutout to Doctre81 on YT.

Will it be another high profile port or something new?

@jump

Doctre81's video points out the LinkedIn profile mentioning the game being for PS4, Xbone, and Switch. My assumption would be a port, since that's their modus operandi, but they have talked about their own internal IP for the longest time. And for all we know they could be self-publishing like Supergiant Games did with Hades.

@Magician They did the new Killer Instinct a few years ago. Is it definitely Switch related? If they were just guns for hire to do a port I would imagine the publisher would be making an announcement not themselves.
