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!
Physical copies of Ib, Mato Anomalies, and Trails to Azure for me. Also adding Paranormasight to the eShop wishlist. I'll have that for "free" after I have enough gold coins or after a deep discount. Whichever comes first.
PARANORMASIGHT: The Seven Mysteries of Honjo (what is this title?) for me. So far very intrigued by the look and premise of it.
Bought Fatal Frame and Paranormasight. I'm a sucker for supernatural Japanese horror. Otherwise, I'm good until Advance Wars.
Ahh quite a long list of games this week, my wallet is crying
Trails to Azure (physical pre-order)
Mato Anomolies (physical pre-order)
Sixtar Gate: STARTRAIL
and the belated Little witch Nobeta (Physical)
Kinda interested in oni as well, but I'm waiting on reviews of that because the trailers don't show a lot. Just watched Switch Watch's review of IB and according to them it seems pretty good so that's up there as well, but the puzzle aspect is holding me back from an impulse buy.
I didn't get the memo saying Halloween's in March this year, but I'll embrace it anyway.
Yaaay, Figment 2! The music in the first game was phenomenal. Also, The Wreck sounds interesting, i liked the trailer.
Fatal Frame, Paranormasight and Ib are intriguing, but horror games are definitely not my forte so I'll probably skip them.
Trails to Azure eventually (have to get and play at least Trails from Zero first), maybe Figment 2 (still have to play the first one) and Oni (waiting on reviews first like @Nanami_Ataraxia)!
Thought about Fatal Frame, but ultimately decided to skip it.
I want to get into the Trails series, but i am currently awash in RPGs.
Maybe in the future.
Vernal Edge looks interesting, and Ib too. I'll wait on reviews for those. I already have physical copies ordered of Mato Anomalies, Trails to Azure, and Fatal Frame, so the only other thing I'm looking to possibly pick up (pending reviews) is Record of Agarest War.
Is there going to be a Paranormasight review?
Nothing. But I certainly don't need a reason to buy more for a while
@jolteon23 "PARANORMASIGHT: The Seven Mysteries of Honjo (what is this title?) for me. So far very intrigued by the look and premise of it."
I don't usually buy visual novels, but it has an 86 on MetaCritic at the moment, with only 3 reviewers giving a score under 80 (one of them with what looks like a "barking mad" score).
@MontyCircus I bought it (haven't played it yet), but I can't wait because of the positive reviews. I hope Nintendolife is going to come with their own review.
