Unless something has changed recently you shouldn't need to setup additional accounts, you can just switch ( ;) ) the region of your original account whenever you want to browse a different eShop.


Oh really? When I looked it up all I seemed to be able to find was going on the account website and creating a new one with a new email :roll: . Oh well, it worked anyway :slol:

Yeah if you got to accounts.nintendo.com and login you can then edit your profile and choose whatever region you want! :toot:

I've bought stuff from all over the e world! Some countries won't accept certain types of card so you have to look at other payment methods but there is usually a way to get what you want!

No. Too busy with Pokémon Let's Go, Smash Bros, Stardew Valley and Rabbids. Got to get through them in time for the new Civ 6 expansion.

I've been playing Into the Breach a bit. The first time I played it, it didn't click at all. I was left wondering what all the fuss was about. Gave it another go last night and it really started to get under my skin. I realised I'd been playing it 'wrong', going for crushing defeats (and failing) rather than playing tactically.

I'm still not very good, but am definitely getting better. The simplicity of it, and the small scale of the arenas, make it ideal for the Switch.

If you like turn-based strategies it is well worth looking at.

Looking like Q1 starts with the NSMB port and ends with Yoshi and not much in between.

Thought they might have something for Feb time for the final push towards their 20m hardware target. Which they’re looking like they still might make to be fair.

Smash and Pokémon will do that to/for a company.

They must have something lined up for Feb surely? It can’t just be 2, 2D platformers that Nintendo have in the pipeline for Q1 2010?

I think the schedule for "big" games coming to Switch is currently looking like this...

Feb 26 - Trials Rising
Mar 29 - Yoshi's Crafted World
Apr 16 - Final Fantasy X / X2 Remastered
Apr 23 - Mortal Kombat 11
Apr 23 - Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen
Apr 29 - Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age Remastered
May 21 - Team Sonic Racing

There are tons of smaller indie titles releasing through this period but, yeah, it's not looking spectacular. In particular, I do kinda wonder about Nintendo itself; it seems that there may be just the port of Mario U and Yoshi's Crafted World for this first half of the year. From a personal point of view I'm not that interested in those two titles, either; but I am looking forward to seeing Dragon's Dogma and FF XII arriving :-) .

Yeah, it does say 16th in the eShop, Tramp. But I just looked on Twitter and the maker, Demimonde, has suggested that the Switch version will be out tomorrow:



Edit: Yeah, Demimonde's website has been updated to say the Switch version launches on the 17th, too. That'll probs mean it'll be ready from 14:00 (UK) in line with the usual eShop update.

For some reason I had an idea that Daemon x Machina was a February game, but it's looking like I imagined it. :cry:

Anyway: this looks awfully Earthbound.

I like the look of yiik, it looks different and the reviews seem generally positive. It will be one I pick up in a sale rather than full price

I’m more willing to try out ‘different with a possibility of awful’ than I am many things.

I looks almost derivative to me, like it's trying too hard to capture that Earthbound quirkiness and chasing the success of Undertale and Persona.

Basically it giving itself a tagline of "A Postmodern RPG" really soured me against it. It's shameless self-promotion and feels inauthentic.

It's funny because I played Desert Child over Christmas and that is highly derivative (one of the trailers is a literal remake of the Cowboy Bebop opening) but I enjoyed it a lot for the aesthetic (it looks stylish as hell and has a killer soundtrack). On paper the two games aren't too far apart in how they are presented.

Fortunately I am a pretentious twerp myself and so don’t mind the self-promotion. I thought the philosophical bits in Iconoclasts were great, so I’m still willing to give this a shot.

Ready for it to be bobbins, mind. And it’ll still have to wait until I’ve unlocked every piece of music in Smash.

Pretentious is probably the perfect word for how the game looks to me, yes :lol:

And I really need to play Iconoclasts
