That's your lot for this week's eShop update. Drop a vote in the poll above, and a comment below with your hot picks...
Quite excited to receive my physical copy of Mario Tennis Aces, which (mind you) is only the second non-port game Nintendo has published on Switch since December, and the next one isn’t coming until October when Super Mario Party releases. Step it up!
My MTA cart arrived today, as expected I detest the BS but love the pure tennis mode.
I wish you could unlock everything without playing with all the BS, I genuinely got a headache after the training because there’s just so much crap.
Motion controls, breaking rackets, super duper mega shots, super duper mega blocks, trick shots it’s all crap.
But turn all that off and you’ve got the best tennis game I’ve played in years.
The Anima Gate of Memories twitter said that the game isn't supposed to be released until the 29th. Just a heads up. Unless something changed.
I wish that there was more consistency with the accuracy of these release dates! Your site states that Flashback is now available on the American eshop, but I checked and they list the release date as being an entire month away! Am I missing something?
Really want minecraft, but so many other good games like Mario party and let's go picachu that I want instead
No Captain Toad demo for the US? Aw maaaaan.
I might buy Air Mail . . . CGR loved the mobile game saying it compares favorably to Pilot Wings and called it "casual gaming heaven".
Definitely in on the Caveman Warriors demo.
I mean who is honestly getting anything in that list other than Mario Tennis?
Grrrrrr! Lucky for them I have plenty to keep me occupied until then! Ha!
@gatorboi352 Me. Ys VIII.
@gatorboi352 Me. Lost Child and Flashback
The Lost Child and Ys for me. Since Nintendo isn't releasing anything of interest to me until Nov, I'll use these RPGs to keep me using my Switch
I think im gettng mario tennis, it..... the nes classic re-releas s tomorrow and I want that too!!! Darn, my budget this week
@gatorboi352 I'm getting de Blob.
@thesilverbrick Wow that’s actually really sad. So really Nintendo only has about four published titles this year. Not including DLC and ports of course
@gatorboi352 Ys VIII, Last Blade 2 and Gunbird2 are all higher on my list than Mario Tennis Aces. I love a tennis game, but I fear Aces is just a bit too gimmicky for my taste. It's on a backburner list for me.
The Last Blade 2 is a superb game if you like Neo Geo fighters.
@Aaron09 There will be five Nintendo-published titles, not four! Kirby, Aces, the Let's Go Pokémon games (which count as one), Smash and ... Octopath Traveler, which is technically published by Nintendo, though developed by Squeenix.
Also, I enjoyed your typo. I'm all for more Nintendo poets!
Happy Lumines week everyone!
Will get Lumines and Pode at some point - just not anytime soon. Happy to see Pode is cheaper ($25) than what people were telling me it would be a few weeks ago ($40) but I’ll still wait for a discount.
Got the Lost Child physical. I'll get my payday eshop cards tomorrow. not sure what I will buy or if I will sit on the cash.
Already pre-loaded Mario Tennis Aces. But I'm gonna get Ys VIII as well. That's gonna be fantastic!
Already have Ys VIII pre-ordered from Amazon to get those extra bonus goodies.
@Krull @Aaron 09 don't you mean 10? Add Bayonetta 1/2, DK Tropical Freeze, Hyrule Warriors DE, Captain Toad Treasure Tracker, and Super Mario Party to that list.
Or are you only counting non-ports? Then you still forgot Mario Party, but I think the others should count considering how low an install base the WiiU had.
@onex Snap - I did forget Mario Party. But yes, we were only counting non-ports.
And I'm not complaining, just to make myself clear. I'm all for more Wii U ports. In fact, I'd also like more GBA ports...
Grab the Bottle looks oddly interesting...
So Mario Tennis Aces is almost released... Did the results of the demo tournament thing ever get released?
@gatorboi352 Me. Ys VIII. Pode if reviews say a single player can handle the co-op gameplay. de Blob if I get in the mood to play an amazing game in HD. I won't be getting Aces at all. I'm waiting for Camelot to announce Mario Golf.
I mean who honestly looks at a list of two dozen games and both dismisses all but one of them and assumes everyone will be equally dismissive?
Nothing for me this week.
Was really hoping NA got the Captain Toad demo....
Oh well- Lumines for me!
Last week ran my eshop credit near dry, so no new games for awhile.
Tough choices this week with a huge backlog and Crash Trilogy, Wolfenstein 2, Octopath and (apparently) Limbo imminent.
Lumines is a definite. Very interested in Air Mail. Monitoring reviews of Pode. De Blob is too expensive unfortunately. There are so many good shmups on Switch that I'll probably skip Gunbird 2. Not enough of a JRPG fan to buy Y's with Octopath on the horizon.
More I think about it, more I think I'll leave Mario Tennis until another time. There's a dearth of future first party games on my wanted list whereas third parties are bringing the goods now.
Good gravy!! I can’t even keep track no more! Gunbird 2, de Blob & Mario Tennis for me this week!! Maybe Wizard Fire as well!
@thesilverbrick @Krull @onex @Krull Don't forget Sushi Striker which is also Nintendo. Technically the Xenoblade 2 DLC story also as its coming out as a stand alone game.
Plus who knows what else Nintendo may release. We have a likely Summer Direct covering things.
@Aaron09 Yep. Five new exclusive first-party published games in a year (if you consider Pokémon and Smash). Feels like the Wii U all over again on the first-party front.
@XenoShaun Sushi Striker is a hastily-ported 3DS game. I said non-port games. My original point still stands. Nintendo has only published two games on the Switch this year that you can’t get anywhere else and there won’t be another one for four months.
@thesilverbrick Did Sushi Striker come out on 3DS before Switch in the states? They were jointly released over here. It may have been scrambled to get working on the Switch also but it is still a new game. It's the same reasoning with Botw not being a port because it released jointly on both platforms.
It is a shame we are getting less newer titles so far this year, but unfortunately games take time to develop, and Nintendo are still outshining both Sony and Microsoft when it comes to first party releases on a consistant basis (quantity, quality is subjective).
Nothing for me. But next week is Crash Bandicoot and Wolfenstein 2, y'all!
Getting YS VIII physically. Just bought Miitopia during the sale that ends today. Might buy Harvest Moon tomorrow while at Walmart but not sure.
@thesilverbrick I mean it’s not been a bad year for Switch owners who haven’t owned a Wii U but for those who have, it’s not been great.
February we had Bayonetta (a port)
March we had Kirby
April we had Labo (which is hardly a game)
May we had DKTF and HRWDE (ports)
June we have Sushi Strikers (a 3ds port) and Mario tennis.
July we have Captain today (port) and octopacth traveler. An exclusive not made by Nintendo.
August we have Monster Hunter, a 3ds port not made by Nintendo.
Finally Mario party for October, an enhanced Pokémon Go for November and smash for December. Thankfully 3rd party support is better than Wii U’s
@XenoShaun They were simultaneously released. But my point is that it’s not an exclusive game. Historically, Nintendo’s own exclusive games are what drives the sale of their consoles. Sushi Striker is not an exclusive title to the Switch (not to mention it’s selling miserably). Someone who owns a 3DS and wants to play Sushi Striker can do so without buying a Switch. If Nintendo hopes to sell 20 million Switch consoles this fiscal year, they need to step it up with compelling exclusive software (Sushi Striker is neither compelling nor exclusive). They are dropping the ball in that department.
@nintendolife is there no eshop releases for Europe this week?
@BanjoPickles I believe Flashback released physical but not digital yet. Don't know why but that's what I've gathered.
What about Wolfenstein? It comes out the same day as YS right?
@thesilverbrick Ah right, get ya. It is likely they are banking a lot on Pokemon and Smash to shift those units. It may also be possible to see Fire Emblem release before the fiscal year ends (doubtful.. and unlikely to be a killer seller).
Pokemom though, will shift units. Even if its the novelty of having a Pokemon RPG in HD with local co op. Smash they clearly think will do best otherwise I can't imagine why they pushed it so much (especially to the competitive crowd) at E3.
@Dom I am still not seeing Crazy Justice. Surely it has been out for over a week now because you dedicated an article to it.
@XenoShaun Don’t get me wrong; I think Pokémon and Smash will definitely shift consoles. Unfortunately, both of those titles are several months away. They really need to keep interest levels high by spreading out compelling exclusive releases. I had about a dozen friends buy a Switch when it released, and over half of them haven’t touched their Switch in months, according to my friends list, anyway. I was hoping to see Nintendo keep a steady stream of exclusive content rolling out after last year to keep all audiences interested, but this is clearly not the case.
@Pablo17 If it's not present on any of the information Nintendo provides, then it's not included.
@thesilverbrick I do wonder if Nintendo are focusing on third party more so also. Some friends are getting a Switch now for Octopath and/or Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate.
It also comes down to just how many people they are bringing into the Switch fold that weren't Wii U owners. Even though we have had 3/4 Wii U ports so far (this year), they are darn good games that could easily attract those who skipped last gen. Considering these ports don't detract from development of new games it certainly can't harm the Switch with releasing them. Better than no games since March (or April if you include Labo).
@Dom you wrote an article stating the release date for Crazy Justice, that date was just the “playable at E3” date, not the actual release date. Just too busy or lazy to correct yourself.
Caveman Warriors demo for me. I've tried nearly every demo-many don't click with me, but occasionally I buy a game based off a demo that leaves me wanting more. Pixeljunk Monsters 2 and Vostok are two such games I had to purchase after playing their demos through twice. Great games for my Switch.
The last blade 2 and Gunbird 2 for me! Some retro goodness!
Mmph. Lots of good gems in there... for my backlog.
Ys VIII - Not at that price, I'll wait for a price drop, or if there's a physical release of it, I'll GameFly it.
Mario Tennis - Whether I play regular or gimmick mode, this has always been fun to me, but I'm playing so much other stuff, I have to really screen and limit my online competitive gaming (MK8D is my go too, soon in August to be followed up by Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate, meh). A sale (or luck) could change my mind.
The Journey Down I believe was point and click, but trying to feel out the aesthetic as well as wait for a review.
Anima - Action RPG always makes my ears perk up. I like the plotline, but I'll wait for a review before making any moves.
Flashback - This will be an instabuy (whenever it comes out) so I can finally complete a long lost, personal SNES mission of mine — Beat Out of This World AND Flashback.
Whelp...... back to Saturday Morning RPG, Goetia, and Bloodstained: CotM.
Just want to quickly add as seems Nintendo didn't want to add it - Pixeljunk Monsters 2 Encore pack DLC came out this week too (Europe also).
Nothing for me! My paycheck hits tonight, and maybe I’ll get Hollow Knight for my weekly treat. Games like YS8 and Mario Tennis are nice but will rest comfortably on my wishlist. Gotta sling money at my MHGU and Mega Man 11 preorders for now.
@Pablo17 We report on games all the time, but we don't control when they arrive on the eShop. Or was that response too lazy for you?
@gatorboi352 Flashback, Ys VIII, Lumines...it’s a good week besides just Mario Tennis.
Minecraft update and Lumines for me
@imgrowinglegs there is one on the 3DS eShop....I’m downloading it right now
@Dom Where are the fireworks, marching bands and free candy for all with each article and/or response?
Can you be any lazier!?!?
@Krull Whoa someone got offended 😂 it’s not like 5 is THAT much greater than 4. Whatever makes you sleep at night I suppose.
I absolutely cannot wait for Lumines Remastered. It's one of my favorite falling block puzzle games of all time. Also it was strange for Musynx to release 2 days earlier if you bought it physically since I've had the game since Tuesday.
@Dom I guess you couldn't solve it. They were basically correcting your article for you. Lazy.
Hi @everyone we found an article on NintendoLife, which contains a few incorrect information about Crazy Justice, that we would like to mention until they solve it. On June 13 we will have an E3 Cross-Play showcase, which will be covered by IGN as well at the MIX booth. The coming soon pages are under preparation and will be available soon. Crazy Justice is coming in the following 2 weeks.
Source is the Official Crazy Justice Discord
@thesilverbrick Agree w/ most of what you posted. Nintneodo's 2018 (edit 18 not 19) summer looks a lot like their E3:
Mario v Rabbids DK DLC
Splatoon 2 Octolings DLC
XC2 DLC - sold as a $40 game but it's still a $30 season pass w/ Switch cart tax added
DLC and ports. It's enough to make one contemplate trading in on'es Switch. I won't, but the contemplation was real when I read that "article" this morning about no used games. If Nintendo locked game carts to one console only I was done. We only have 1 Switch now but w/ 2 teenage boys in the house another is a foregone conclusion. But if they were stupid enough lock carts I was stupid enough to trade in my Switch. We would still be able to play half of the Switch's games on our Wii U.
@Aaron09 Oh no! You misread me! I was being tongue in cheek! There's no room for nuance in comments, is there? Curses...
@Krull Oh I see! My apologies 😂
@Aaron09 @thesilverbrick Don’t forget Dragon Quest Builders was also published by them and they’re also going to publish Go Vacation in August.
@Mrtoad I suppose we should change the name published to developed.
@Mrtoad When I say “Nintendo's own games” I don’t tend to include games made by third-party publishers, especially when they’re available on rival consoles. I’m moreso referring to games featuring IPs belonging to Nintendo. You know, the kind of games they have the rights to?
@thesilverbrick You said published not made in your first comment and both the games, I mentioned are published by Nintendo, it’s public knowledge.
@Alto It did! It's available now for Switch and DS
@Dom The Captain Toad demo is now available in NA for both the Switch and DS eShops! Huzzah
Ys VIII, Mario Tennis, Gunbird 2 day one. Lumines to the top of the wish list.
@Mrtoad If you read the entirety of this thread, you’ll notice I also specified that I was referring to games that were compelling and exclusive to Switch. Neither Dragon Quest Builders nor Go Vacation are Switch exclusive.
Gunbird 2 is the first Switch game I've been interested in for months. Hopefully Zerodiv's port works well at launch this time.
Mario Tennis for me
@thesilverbrick no they have more games coming. Besides when you are trying to make some good games come out, how many first party do you think that can come out in a year. Nintendo has more first parties than any other company. It wouldn't be that easy.
The Gunbird 2 port is pretty cool, of course it lacks Capcom's Morrigan, but it has an option to choose between the original (arcade) and arranged (Dreamcast) final boss.
@thesilverbrick Sushi Strikers say hi. Also, Xeno2 Torna the Golden City is on September and that is basically a new game.
People, don`t waste your time replying to Sony fanboys/Nintendo haters. Just do as I did and report them. Surely Nintendo Life will do something if enough of us report said people.
I'm finally ready to do Minecraft. Been watching it for years mature. I think I'm ready to finally dive in.
@JJ286 Read the rest of the thread. We addressed Sushi Striker thoroughly. And Xenoblade’s DLC can’t be considered a new game if you can’t buy it apart from the base game. It’s an add-on by definition.
Ys 8 and Lost Souls for me, but I have to spread them out becuase of Octopath.
Captain Toad Demo already avail for the US too.
I'll be getting Gunbird 2 and The Last Blade 2, which both are definitely a Flashback to the late 90's.
(Yes, Flashback, too)
@thesilverbrick Arent they selling a standalone cart of the dlc for xb2? No stake in the argument or w/e here, just remember hearing that.
@PhilKenSebben If they are, that’s news to me.
Lumines and Ys VIII are all that interest me here.
@PanurgeJr you're making all that up literally because it's me and I, for some reason, absolutely wreck you every time I comment. You won't purchase any of those games and we both know it.
@thesilverbrick except you can buy it, is on Amazon right now and it specifies that you don't need Xenoblade 2 to play it...at least not the Torna prequel.
Also, people don't liking a game doesn't mean it isn't a new one. Sushi Strikers is a very great title and its price is fair cause is damn good.
@JJ286 I was mistaken about the Xenoblade expansion being available separately. My apologies.
And my point still stands about Sushi Striker. I never said it wasn’t new. I said it wasn’t compelling or exclusive. Regardless of the critical reception, the game is selling miserably and is a niche title. It is drawing nobody to buy a Switch, especially since it is also available elsewhere (on 3DS, where it is not only $10 cheaper, but also arguably has a superior control setup). Nintendo needs high-profile exclusives to sell their console. Sushi Striker is neither high-profile nor exclusive.
And the public does not perceive the price to be fair. If they did, more people would buy it. The general consensus is that the game costs way too much. And since the general consensus of consumers is what makes or breaks a game’s sales performance, I would say the game is priced too high.
@thesilverbrick Everything you said about Sushi Strikers is so wrong except that isn't selling which is a damn shame cause the game is super phenomenal. Guess this game will be another Elite Beat Agents....amazing game rejected by the majority.
@JJ286 Please clarify why my statements are wrong.
The game is not exclusive to the Switch. How is that “so wrong”?
It is selling poorly because people think it is too expensive. Read the comments section of the review of the game on this site and you’ll see what I mean. If the game were priced fairly, it would sell more. People think it is too expensive and are voting with their wallets. How is any of that “so wrong”?
The game is not pushing anybody to buy a Switch. Since it is not exclusive to the console and is a sales failure, it has not been a high-profile compelling reason to go out and purchase a brand new Switch, and is not helping to drive sales of the console. How is that statement “so wrong”?
And I’d like to clarify that I’m not saying it is a bad or poorly designed game by any means. I played the demo and enjoyed it. I would have purchased it if it were $20 or less, and I plan to when it inevitably drops in price after performing so poorly. But I stand behind everything else I said, seeing as my argument is absolutely grounded in reality.
Don’t just say I’m “so wrong” without backing your statement up.
