So that's your lot for this week's North American Nintendo Download. Go on, be a sport and drop a vote in the poll above, and comment below with your hot picks!
I’m still not sure if I should start with the remake or the original Trials of Mana. But both look great.
@imgrowinglegs The combat system has been refined and there's an optional map to help you keep from getting lost in the remake. I'd go straight to that one.
I am going for the fours: Picross and Smile Basic!
Probably neither one immediately. I still need to finish Picross S3 and Murder by Numbers.
Trials of Mana and Moving Out.
@imgrowinglegs I would start with the remake, there are so many quality of life updates plus the combat feels great!
Yay. More Picross. Exactly what we needed
Animal Fun for Toddlers and Kids gets the generic shovelware of the week award.
Nothing for me until Shantae and Xenoblade, unfortunately.
Broken Lines and Sunless Sea, exceptionally hyped for the latter.
Nothing for me. I've just grabbed a boatload of games on sale anyway. I am thinking of getting Itta though. I love both Hyper Light Drifter and Furi, and Itta looks like a combination of them both in some ways.
Next big thing for me will be Xenoblade.
No price for Telling Lies?
@imgrowinglegs One thing to consider is the voice acting in the new one. The only healer, Charlotte, is just about unbearable and there are sexual jokes because she's a child. It has turned me off for the remake completely. So I started playing the original from the Mana Collection and so far it seems so much better without all the cringe of the voice acting. Up to you, but thought you should know.
Yah for Picross.
Trials of Mana for me, but I've got a copy coming in the mail. Might not be here till Tuesday but it's all good.
Pretty excited for it, though.
@imgrowinglegs start on the new one, trials of mana aged much better than Secret of Mana but it still feels pretty dated.
Trials of Mana physical copy coming from amazon whenever it feels like it.
so tired of the anime games, ironic i know and while it isnt the art style or anything (even tho alot of them look kinda samey) i just dont find most of their gameplay that fun. i loved personas 3 and 4, didnt play 5 just yet but im sure thats fun too, and also loved fire emblem three houses so i dont know. is it just me?
Trials of Mana is an eventual pick up because I'm trying to work on my backlog. I'm finally playing Ni No Kuni after picking it up on release day, only took me 7 months to get around to it.
@grewupnintendo you can turn the VA off if you wish.
Trials of mana and Naruto!
But wont be buying it this week lol i spend too mucbmh already with the Eshop sale.
So i have to wait, but will buy it in about two weeks.
Today's my birthday and if I had one wish, that would be buying Trials of Mana Remake
$50 seems too pricey for Mana. Will buy when on sale
I pre-ordered Picross S4 so I guess that's ready to go.
I'm thinking of picking up Flashback and Cyber Protocol as they are on sale for 1.24 CAD and 1.68 CAD, respectively.
I want Trials of Mana but I still want to start Collection of Mana first. I'll be picking up Moving Out next week though.
ToM until a new monster hunter game comes.
@StephenYap3 Happy birthday, God bless, and have a great day!
@Everyone_Else Nothing this week, unless I purchase something from my favorite list in the e-Shop.
Finally, there is a game out that I want. Trails of Mana and it got the reviews too.
Trials of Mana for me, Picross for the wife.
Just picked up Final Fantasy IX & still pop into Animal Crossing daily (also got Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum N' Fun recently as well), so nothing for me on the Switch front for awhile.
I will get Trials of Mana, but on PS4, and only after I've played Final Fantasy VII Remake, which will have to wait until I'm done with Tales of Berseria (too many JRPGs, lol).
@Capt_N Thanks for that!
Then again, I'll get ToM later. I mean, it's not like Square's gonna delist the game off of the eShop a week later, right?
Trials of Mana just shipped. No clue when I will get to it though. Studying and Animal Crossing.
@Wraggadam1 Yeah but that's the point of the 3D remake are the voices and upgraded visuals. It's honestly my fault as I know that Square has really bad voice acting in most of their games as they lean heavy on the anime side of things which I loath. So, it was expected. Just not for me.
