Dragon Quest X Version 4 Headed to Switch in November

At the Dragon Quest Summer Festival 2017, Square Enix has announced the next expansion for Dragon Quest X, known as “The 500-Year Voyage to a Far-away Hometown.” The game will be launching on November 16 for 3,800 yen in Japan. I am hoping we will get a localized version of the game from Square, so I will keep my fingers crossed.

I can’t wait to see more Square Enix titles for Switch… Where have they gone?! I was fully expecting to see/hear more about them during E3 2017. Check out the trailer below as well:

ARMS Update Coming Next Week

Nintendo has announced that there will be an update to their newest IP, ARMS. The game has done very well for the company and we love it here in my house. Last update gave us a new character in Max Brass but there is no word as to what this update will bring. As soon as we hear something, we will let you know.

More as it develops.

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle: Combat Gameplay Trailer

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is coming at the end of this month so Nintendo and Ubisoft decided to drop this all new combat gameplay trailer on us. The game is coming along VERY nicely and from what I have heard/read it may be one of those sleeper hits. The Nintendo Switch just seems like a natural fit for a title like this (quirky and goofy….not just Mario) so I will be eager to check it out myself later this month.

Check out the trailer and let us know what you think.

SNES Mini Pre-Orders Start Later This Month

Nintendo has not only announced that SNES Mini Pre-Orders will be taking place later this month, but they will also release an ample supply of the system when it releases later this year.

I am hoping to get a system this time around as I missed out on the NES Classic Mini.

Keep it here for more SNES Mini pre order news. Stay tuned.
