SNES Classic Edition Is Coming Soon, 5 Must Have Classic Games The Console Needs

With the success of the NES Classic Edition, it comes to no surprise that the guys over at Nintendo are planning to have an SNES classic edition next Christmas. Rumors are rife that Nintendo is planning to have an array of holiday nostalgia consoles until they reach an N64 classic edition. And while those are just speculation, to say the least, a new leak has hinted that an SNES Classic Edition is on its way and a lot of fans are really excited as to what the games are. The entire story about the possibility of the SNES Classic Edition has been leaked by WWG. It seems like Nintendo has already patented a new SNES controller which makes this news, along with the success of the NES Classic Edition, most likely true. Truth be told, the SNES Classic Edition could rival the NES in terms of classic and amazing games. According to a list by Paste Magazine, here are some of the must-have games that the new SNES mini must include in order for it to have the same success as the NES Classic Edition. Star Fox Uno de mis juegos mas queridos de la Snes , a pesar de que era pecimo jugandolo aun asi lo disfrutaba y mucho. #starfox #nintendo #16bits #supernintendo #superfamicom #snes #shooter #foxmccloud #chipsuperfx #3d #shootergame #videogames #videogame #gamer #game #geek #oldschool A photo posted by Pikari (@pikari.kohinata) on Dec 27, 2016 at 7:52pm PST This is the game that kicked off the whole Star Fox series. Having this in the SNES Classic Edition is definitely a must for the system. Star Fox’ smooth controls and an immersive 3d world was pretty groundbreaking at that time for a Nintendo Console. This game was voted as the best shooter of 1993 by then top gaming magazine, Electronic Gaming Monthly. Star Fox is one of the best rail shooters of all times and a lot of fans who grew up playing the SNES would definitely feel like a kid again once they take up to the skies.

Wrestling was at the highest peak at that time and games like WWF Royal Rumble are pioneers when it comes to Pro Wrestling Video Games. While a lot of WWE-licensed games are duds, this one is definitely a gem. Nearly all gamers will remember button mashing their controllers to death just so they could throw their brother or friend out of the ring. Those campy 90’s WWE games are certainly fond childhood memories for a lot of older gamers. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time Shout out to @multivest_video_games in Miami for hooking me up with the #TurtlesInTime #TMNT #SNES #SuperNintendo #teenagemutantninjaturtles A photo posted by Steve (@gem_mint) on Dec 17, 2016 at 1:32pm PST Obliterating foot soldiers on the streets of New York City with a couple of buddies will always be a fond memory for SNES adopters. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in time sure was a good throwback to those days. This game is a must have for the SNES Classic Edition especially now that most “Turtles” games have failed to recapture the magic and sense of adventure of the earlier ones. The days of trash talking, couch co-op beat em up may be dwindling down, but hopefully, the SNES Classic edition may just send fans back in time. Super Mario World May have gone a little retro for entertainment this leave.

It laid the foundation of what future Mario games will act, feel, and play like. In a sense, Super Mario World was the perfection of the vision that started out as a simple plumber jumping on bricks and saving the princess. Super Mario World is almost a shoo-in for the 30 games that will be included for the SNES Classic edition and deserves a lot of respect from true gamers.

Getting dunked on by the best bud from the three-point area while doing summersault flips is definitely a bitter pill to swallow. NBA Jam is an amazing throwback to basketball arcade that mixes humor with fast-paced basketball action. “Boom shakalaka” indeed. [Featured Image by LoooZaaa/iStock]

Nintendo Switch Release Date Games: New 'Assassin's Creed' Game Set In Egypt To Be Released Alongside PS4 And Xbox Versions

The Nintendo Switch is expected to be available to consumers in early 2017, however, that hasn’t stopped many big and small names in the video games industry pledging support for the new console. Ubisoft, an early supporter of Nintendo’s previous home console, the Wii U, is also now expected to announce a brand new title in the Assassin’s Creed series for the Switch. The title, which will be set in Egypt, is expected to be released on Nintendo’s hybrid console alongside versions of the game on Sony’s PlayStation 4 and Microsoft’s Xbox One. According to Nintendo Life, Ubisoft is expected to drop all exclusivity plans with the release of an upcoming Assassin’s Creed game and instead make the title available on day one to players on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo’s new Switch console. The move will mark a huge shift from Ubisoft, who have previously made titles available exclusively on Sony’s platform from day one, or at the very least provided the PlayStation 4 with exclusive content in contrast to the other platforms. However, that’s all set to change. Rumour: Assassin’s Creed 2017 Is Apparently Coming To Nintendo Switch https://t.co/IjKEPAlEwA pic.twitter.com/SluHqImtSB — My Nintendo News (@MyNintendoNews) December 28, 2016 Whilst there’s still no official confirmation from either Ubisoft or Sony as to whether the Assassin’s Creed game will be available on the Switch, Ubisoft does have a long history of supporting Nintendo consoles. Despite dwindling sales figures, Ubisoft continued to release games in their Assassin’s Creed series on the Wii U long into its lifespan. According to WCCF Tech, the speculation was backed up by Laura Kate Dale, who has cemented herself as a prominent name in Nintendo Switch speculation. Dale confirmed the news from her sources within Nintendo, saying “I’ve heard as much on AC release parity, Ubi want day one release. Good luck on your 12 days. Fingers crossed for you.” However, it’s important to remember that a new Assassin’s Creed for the Nintendo Switch is purely speculation until its confirmed by either Ubisoft or Nintendo. When could that confirmation come? According to VG247, Nintendo announced earlier this month that they’ll be revealing all about the Switch during a special event in January. The event, which will be live-streamed across the globe, takes place on January 13 and could allow Nintendo to announce support from publishers like Ubisoft. RELATED STORIES ON INQUISITR: Nintendo Switch Latest Updates: Three Hours Of Battery Life And Other Rumors Confirmed By Insider Nintendo Switch News: Two Games Confirmed On Release From THQ Nordic For New Console ‘Zelda: Breath Of The Wild’ Will Miss Nintendo Switch Release Date Because Of Development Delays When Nintendo officially unveiled the Switch a few months back, the company also released an exhaustive list of third party developers and publishers that would be supporting their console, including the likes of Ubisoft, EA, Activision and even publishers like Bethesda who have never supported Nintendo consoles in the past. A wealth of third-party support is clearly testament to Nintendo’s plan to handle the Switch very differently to the Wii U, which was crucially unsuccessful because of a lack of key third party support.

However, the aforementioned January event is expected to give Nintendo the opportunity give a more detailed rundown of their new console and what it does. Beyond that, Nintendo is expected to make the Switch available to consumers in the second quarter of 2017, however, is yet to provide an update on the console’s development status. That being said, the Switch’s release date across the globe is expected to be announced alongside those other aforementioned key details during Nintendo’s January Switch event.

‘Re:ZERO – Starting Life In Another World – Death Or Kiss’ Official Trailer For Visual Novel Released: Upcoming PS4 And PS Vita Game’s Screenshots Revealed

Re:ZERO – Starting Life in Another World – Death or Kiss, a console quality visual novel loosely based on the popular Japanese anime Re:ZERO Kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu, has a new official trailer that confirms many details already released but also hints at some new information about the upcoming PS4 And PS Vita game. Developers 5pb have shared the debut trailer for Re:ZERO – Starting Life in Another World – Death or Kiss visual novel. The first trailer of the game doesn’t reveal much about how the game is actually played, but it does offer a lot of dialogue from two of the most popular female characters: Rem and Ram. The duo essentially hints at gameplay and offers some unreleased information about the visual novel. [Image by 5pb/MAGES] As reported by the Inquisitr earlier, the game is loosely based on the based on author Tappei Nagatsuki and illustrator Shinichirou Otsuka’s Re:ZERO light novel series. However, the developers have drawn a singular aspect from the anime about Subaru’s painfully repetitive death and rebirth. The makers have developed an entirely new storyline which is based on an anime called Another Episode with the Candidates for Next Ruler. The backstory of Natsuki Subaru relies on the popular Isekai genre, which means the protagonists are transported to “another world.” However, unlike any other hero in other Japanese manga or anime, Subaru doesn’t gain superhuman strength or the ability to cast spells or even put up a decent fight. In fact, Subaru gains the painful ability of dying, only to resurrect at a preset point in the past. The anime showed how the inexperienced Subaru gains knowledge and insight through his painfully repetitive death sequences to get rid of the “Fate of Death” curse. [Image by 5pb/MAGES] The trailer repeatedly mentions the date March 23, 2017. It has been noted in the past that the visual novel will be released on this date. 5pb also announced it would release a 11,340 yen limited edition of Re:ZERO Death or Kiss alongside the 8,100 yen standard edition of the game in Japan. However, the creators haven’t confirmed if the visual novel will be available for other gaming consoles besides Sony’s PS4 and PS Vita. RELATED REPORTS BY THE INQUISITR ‘Re:ZERO – Starting Life in Another World – Death or Kiss’ Visual Novel Gets Konomi Suzuki, While Limited Edition Makes You Choose Between Rem And Ram ‘Re:ZERO’ Video Game ‘Death Or Kiss’ Price, Launch Date, Platforms, And Gameplay Revealed: A Battlefield Of Emotions For Subaru, Ram, Rem, Emilia, And Other ‘Kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu’ Anime Girl Characters Re:ZERO Video Game ‘Death or Kiss’ Storyline: Subaru’s Battles Are Still Fatalistic But The Battlefield Is Emotions And A Kiss From Ram, Rem, Emilia, Or Other ‘Kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu’ Anime Girl Characters Is Goal ‘Re:ZERO’ Video Game ‘Death Or Kiss’ Features New Story/Gameplay For Ram, Rem, Emilia, And Other ‘Kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu’ Anime Girl Characters The promotional video doesn’t delve much into Subaru’s ordinary past or his extraordinary journey in the fatalistic world where he meets Emilia and falls in love. As reported by the Inquisitr, Subaru ends up in the Kingdom of Lugnica in the visual novel. Players find themselves in the midst of a contest called the “Beauty Queen Election.” The contest is participated by all the female characters introduced in the anime, namely Emilia, Ram, Rem, Beatrice, Felt, Priscilla, Anastasia, and Crusch. [Image by 5pb/MAGES] The beauties are competing for a royal treasure called “Metia.” A treasure beyond compare, the prize is supposed to have mystical powers. Besides bestowing good luck, the award winner would magically transform into royalty, who will be honored throughout the kingdom. Unfortunately, the award is cursed with “Fate of Death,” and Subaru handles it. After fondling the Metia, Subaru has no option other than try and avoid death by securing a kiss from one of the main heroines, Emilia, Ram, Rem, Beatrice, Felt, Priscilla, Anastasia, and Crusch. [Image by 5pb/MAGES] The gameplay is expected to be quite engaging as the player’s progress depends on the choices the in-game character makes. The developers have promised endless hours of entertainment as each choice slightly alters the progress and outcome. The promotional video implied there could eight possible endings to the Re:ZERO – Starting Life in Another World – Death or Kiss game. The Japanese trailer, titled “Let’s become a novelist,” further hinted there could be eight endings, one each for Emilia, Ram, Rem, Beatrice, Felt, Priscilla, Anastasia, and Crusch.

Nintendo Switch Latest Updates: Three Hours Of Battery Life And Other Rumors Confirmed By Insider

Popular video game critic Laura Kate Dale recently held an AMA at Reddit. According to her introductions, the main focus of the whole AMA is to address everything she knows about the Nintendo Switch. According to Dale, she has a lot of insider info about the Nintendo Switch and would like to answer questions regarding Nintendo’s mysterious console. The entire AMA was done in two hours and it shed to light new facts as well as old news about the Nintendo Switch. For those who would like to read the full AMA, here is the entire thing from Reddit. The first news to come to light is that the Nintendo Switch will indeed be more powerful while it is in docked mode. While this rumor has already been addressed some time ago. It is definitely nice to hear as this will be indeed the case. This is what Laura Kate Dale had to say regarding the specs of the console. “I still think Eurogamer’s info is solid, knowing their info sources and their reporting techniques and practices. Most of my confidence in the DF post comes from my willingness to accept EG as having done their homework. I had a single source matching EG. I do not know DF’s sources.” Nintendo Switch Price And Release Date Nintendo Switch is coming March 2017!

The specs seem to match the price point and will most likely hold for the Switch. Speaking of price point, according to Dale the Switch would cost around 300 USD which is right around the price range most people are hoping for. This would make the Nintendo Switch much cheaper than the Xbox One and PS4 when they launch. Another tidbit that Laura shared is that the Switch will launch on March 17.

This might not be the best games to get excited for the Nintendo Switch but at least it shows that there are already some third party games lined up for the console. Dale mentioned that there are at least three third party exclusives for the Switch, but the only ones that she mentioned are Just Dance 2017 and Rabbids RPG. One good news though is that Dale has acknowledged that a new Mario game will be available at launch. Portable Mode Will Last Up to Three Hours The Preview Trailer for Nintendo Switch is here! Check out our YouTube channel to see! A photo posted by Nintendo of America (@nintendo) on Oct 20, 2016 at 10:35am PDT One thing that fans have been wondering about the Nintendo Switch is how long will the battery last in portable mode. Laura Dale has dropped some hints that the Nintendo Switch will be able to last for about three hours. This would put the Switch right around the same battery life of the Nintendo 3ds. While this might seem like a deal breaker, keeping in mind that the Nintendo Switch was built as a home console first makes this quite reasonable. Plus, Dale said that the battery life of the Nintendo Switch can go beyond five hours if the user tweaks some of the settings a little bit.

But she is also guessing that Nintendo might pull off some magic and make the game available for the Nintendo Switch launch date. Hopefully, the game makes it to the launch of the Switch as Nintendo is already heavily marketing the console using the new Legend of Zelda game. [Featured Image by Kevork Djansezian/Getty Images]

'Pokemon GO' Ultra, Great And Special Boxes: Which Is The Best Value, And Everything You Need To Know About Niantic's Holiday Offers

Pokemon GO‘s 2016 holiday event is officially underway, and trainers all over the world are taking advantage of Niantic’s special, limited-time offers for its popular augmented reality game. With Ultra, Great and Special boxes being offered and free Incubators being given away until early January, the developer appears to be getting quite generous to its millions of players. Notably, however, Pokemon GO‘s 2016 Christmas event carries a number of intricacies that players need to be aware of. Here is a brief guide on how to take full advantage of Niantic’s PoGO Christmas event. One thing that trainers must know is that the Pokemon GO Christmas 2016 event is split into two limited-time offers. The first starts on December 25 and ends on January 3, and involves an increased hatch rate for the first Generation 2 Pokemon that have been released into the game. Apart from this, trainers could also acquire a free single-use incubator every day, with the item being awarded after trainers spin their first Photo Disc for the day. As announced by Niantic in the official Pokemon GO blog, the game’s second limited time offer starts on December 30 and ends on January 8. This particular promotion involves lures and an increased spawn rate for some classic Gen 1 Pokemon. As for the lures, the special items would get a boost, lasting 60 minutes instead of the usual 30. Gen 1 starter families, which involve Charmander, Charmeleon, Charizard, Squirtle, Wartortle, Blastoise, Bulbasaur, Ivysaur and Venusaur, would also see a spike in their spawn rates during this period. [Image by Niantic] Apart from the Pokemon GO Christmas events, Niantic is also rolling out a couple of end-of-year sales for some of the game’s most important items. From December 25 to December 30, trainers could purchase specific gift boxes, each with a corresponding number of Incubators, Incense, Great Balls and Ultra Balls. There are three types of special boxes, the most basic being Special, followed by Great Boxes and finally, Ultra Boxes. Lastly, Niantic would also be rolling out yet another end-of-year Pokemon GO sale. From December 30 to January 3, Niantic would be offering Bronze, Silver and Gold boxes to players. While the specifics of each box has not been released by the developer, Niantic has stated that just like the Special, Great and Ultra boxes, each of the Bronze, Silver and Gold boxes would come with a corresponding number of Incense, Lure Modules, Lucky Eggs, Poke Balls and Great Balls. Currently, avid Pokemon GO fans from The Silph Road have noted that the boost in the hatch rate of Gen 2 Baby Pokemon has already been implemented, with numerous fans noting that they have started seeing the elusive new Pokemon hatching from 2KM, 5KM and 10KM eggs since Christmas Day. The availability of single-use Incubators has also been confirmed already, with numerous trainers stating that they did acquire the free item upon spinning their first Photo Disc on the first Pokestop they encountered on December 25. What has managed to get a lot of trainers talking, however, are the Special, Great and Ultra boxes. The prices for the three boxes are quite reasonable, with Special Boxes (10 Great Balls, 2 Incubators) costing 250 Coins, Great Boxes (20 Great Balls, 2 Incense, 4 Incubators) selling for 550 Coins and Ultra Boxes (20 Ultra Balls, 25 Incense, 6 Incubators) costing 1500 Coins. While the Ultra Box’s deal seem to be the best choice for avid Pokemon GO players, numerous PoGO fans at The Silph Road have noted that this might not be the case at all. [Image by Niantic] The Pokemon GO Christmas event is geared towards two things. One is hatching the first batch of Gen 2 Pokemon and the other is aimed at catching rare Gen 1 starter families. While some Incense and Great/Ultra Balls could definitely help in catching the elusive Gen 1 starters, the increased spawn rate of the classic monsters would not begin until December 30. For now, at least, Incubators are the most valuable items in the Pokemon GO 2016 Holiday event since they increase the trainers’ chances of hatching Gen 2 Baby Pokemon. With this in mind, numerous Pokemon GO players from The Silph Road have advised that the Special Box, which costs 250 Coins, would the best deal for the December 25 to December 30 period since the little package comes with two Incubators. Thus, buying three Special boxes for 750 Coins would net players with six Incubators, which is far more affordable than the 1500 Coins that trainers would spend for an Ultra Box, which also comes with six Incubators. Of course, this particular strategy really only works for trainers who are attempting to collect all the Gen 2 baby Pokemon that are already available in the game. For those who are still avidly hunting for monsters in the wild, the Great and Ultra Boxes would be a better deal. Pokemon GO might have missed its chance by not releasing the entire Gen 2 lineup, the Gen 1 Legendaries or the Trading System this December, but it has managed to create a compelling promotion for its wide player base nonetheless. With the 2016 Holiday Gift Boxes, Pokemon GO has managed to engage its players once more, offering deals that are truly value for money. For the 2016 Holiday Season, it seems like Niantic has opted for the safer, less risky road. Considering that Pokemon GO still has a lot of content, features and creatures to roll out, however, doing so is not so bad at all. [Featured Image by Niantic]

Lastly, Niantic would also be rolling out yet another end-of-year Pokemon GO sale. From December 30 to January 3, Niantic would be offering Bronze, Silver and Gold boxes to players. While the specifics of each box has not been released by the developer, Niantic has stated that just like the Special, Great and Ultra boxes, each of the Bronze, Silver and Gold boxes would come with a corresponding number of Incense, Lure Modules, Lucky Eggs, Poke Balls and Great Balls. Currently, avid Pokemon GO fans from The Silph Road have noted that the boost in the hatch rate of Gen 2 Baby Pokemon has already been implemented, with numerous fans noting that they have started seeing the elusive new Pokemon hatching from 2KM, 5KM and 10KM eggs since Christmas Day. The availability of single-use Incubators has also been confirmed already, with numerous trainers stating that they did acquire the free item upon spinning their first Photo Disc on the first Pokestop they encountered on December 25. What has managed to get a lot of trainers talking, however, are the Special, Great and Ultra boxes. The prices for the three boxes are quite reasonable, with Special Boxes (10 Great Balls, 2 Incubators) costing 250 Coins, Great Boxes (20 Great Balls, 2 Incense, 4 Incubators) selling for 550 Coins and Ultra Boxes (20 Ultra Balls, 25 Incense, 6 Incubators) costing 1500 Coins. While the Ultra Box’s deal seem to be the best choice for avid Pokemon GO players, numerous PoGO fans at The Silph Road have noted that this might not be the case at all. [Image by Niantic] The Pokemon GO Christmas event is geared towards two things. One is hatching the first batch of Gen 2 Pokemon and the other is aimed at catching rare Gen 1 starter families. While some Incense and Great/Ultra Balls could definitely help in catching the elusive Gen 1 starters, the increased spawn rate of the classic monsters would not begin until December 30. For now, at least, Incubators are the most valuable items in the Pokemon GO 2016 Holiday event since they increase the trainers’ chances of hatching Gen 2 Baby Pokemon. With this in mind, numerous Pokemon GO players from The Silph Road have advised that the Special Box, which costs 250 Coins, would the best deal for the December 25 to December 30 period since the little package comes with two Incubators. Thus, buying three Special boxes for 750 Coins would net players with six Incubators, which is far more affordable than the 1500 Coins that trainers would spend for an Ultra Box, which also comes with six Incubators. Of course, this particular strategy really only works for trainers who are attempting to collect all the Gen 2 baby Pokemon that are already available in the game. For those who are still avidly hunting for monsters in the wild, the Great and Ultra Boxes would be a better deal. Pokemon GO might have missed its chance by not releasing the entire Gen 2 lineup, the Gen 1 Legendaries or the Trading System this December, but it has managed to create a compelling promotion for its wide player base nonetheless. With the 2016 Holiday Gift Boxes, Pokemon GO has managed to engage its players once more, offering deals that are truly value for money. For the 2016 Holiday Season, it seems like Niantic has opted for the safer, less risky road. Considering that Pokemon GO still has a lot of content, features and creatures to roll out, however, doing so is not so bad at all. [Featured Image by Niantic]

Nintendo Switch Latest Updates: Three Hours Of Battery Life And Other Rumors Confirmed By Insider

Popular video game critic Laura Kate Dale recently held an AMA at Reddit. According to her introductions, the main focus of the whole AMA is to address everything she knows about the Nintendo Switch. According to Dale, she has a lot of insider info about the Nintendo Switch and would like to answer questions regarding Nintendo’s mysterious console. The entire AMA was done in two hours and it shed to light new facts as well as old news about the Nintendo Switch. For those who would like to read the full AMA, here is the entire thing from Reddit. The first news to come to light is that the Nintendo Switch will indeed be more powerful while it is in docked mode. While this rumor has already been addressed some time ago. It is definitely nice to hear as this will be indeed the case. This is what Laura Kate Dale had to say regarding the specs of the console. “I still think Eurogamer’s info is solid, knowing their info sources and their reporting techniques and practices. Most of my confidence in the DF post comes from my willingness to accept EG as having done their homework. I had a single source matching EG. I do not know DF’s sources.” Nintendo Switch Price And Release Date Nintendo Switch is coming March 2017! Catch the Preview Trailer by visiting the link in our bio. #NintendoSwitch #FreedomToPlay #Nintendo #Switch #SuperMario #Zelda #Splatoon #MarioKart #gaming #gamer #videogames A photo posted by Nintendo Switch UK (@nintendoswitchuk) on Oct 20, 2016 at 7:32am PDT Dale is referring to the website that leaked the specs of the Nintendo Switch. The specs seem to match the price point and will most likely hold for the Switch. Speaking of price point, according to Dale the Switch would cost around 300 USD which is right around the price range most people are hoping for. This would make the Nintendo Switch much cheaper than the Xbox One and PS4 when they launch. Another tidbit that Laura shared is that the Switch will launch on March 17. Rabbids RPG, Just Dance 2017, And New Mario at Launch @jrod_hd has released The History of #JustDance PT 2! Link in bio. ????

This might not be the best games to get excited for the Nintendo Switch but at least it shows that there are already some third party games lined up for the console. Dale mentioned that there are at least three third party exclusives for the Switch, but the only ones that she mentioned are Just Dance 2017 and Rabbids RPG. One good news though is that Dale has acknowledged that a new Mario game will be available at launch. Portable Mode Will Last Up to Three Hours The Preview Trailer for Nintendo Switch is here! Check out our YouTube channel to see! A photo posted by Nintendo of America (@nintendo) on Oct 20, 2016 at 10:35am PDT One thing that fans have been wondering about the Nintendo Switch is how long will the battery last in portable mode. Laura Dale has dropped some hints that the Nintendo Switch will be able to last for about three hours. This would put the Switch right around the same battery life of the Nintendo 3ds. While this might seem like a deal breaker, keeping in mind that the Nintendo Switch was built as a home console first makes this quite reasonable. Plus, Dale said that the battery life of the Nintendo Switch can go beyond five hours if the user tweaks some of the settings a little bit. Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Might Make it to Launch Opinion Time! What do you think about the Nintendo Switch? Let us know in the comments! ???? ~Lily A photo posted by The Legend of Zelda (@legendofzelda) on Oct 25, 2016 at 12:14am PDT Dale has also been swarmed with insider rumors that Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild might not make it to the launch day. But she is also guessing that Nintendo might pull off some magic and make the game available for the Nintendo Switch launch date. Hopefully, the game makes it to the launch of the Switch as Nintendo is already heavily marketing the console using the new Legend of Zelda game. [Featured Image by Kevork Djansezian/Getty Images]

‘Re:ZERO – Starting Life In Another World – Death Or Kiss’ Official Trailer For Visual Novel Released: Upcoming PS4 And PS Vita Game’s Screenshots Revealed

Re:ZERO – Starting Life in Another World – Death or Kiss, a console quality visual novel loosely based on the popular Japanese anime Re:ZERO Kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu, has a new official trailer that confirms many details already released but also hints at some new information about the upcoming PS4 And PS Vita game. Developers 5pb have shared the debut trailer for Re:ZERO – Starting Life in Another World – Death or Kiss visual novel. The first trailer of the game doesn’t reveal much about how the game is actually played, but it does offer a lot of dialogue from two of the most popular female characters: Rem and Ram. The duo essentially hints at gameplay and offers some unreleased information about the visual novel. [Image by 5pb/MAGES] As reported by the Inquisitr earlier, the game is loosely based on the based on author Tappei Nagatsuki and illustrator Shinichirou Otsuka’s Re:ZERO light novel series. However, the developers have drawn a singular aspect from the anime about Subaru’s painfully repetitive death and rebirth. The makers have developed an entirely new storyline which is based on an anime called Another Episode with the Candidates for Next Ruler. The backstory of Natsuki Subaru relies on the popular Isekai genre, which means the protagonists are transported to “another world.” However, unlike any other hero in other Japanese manga or anime, Subaru doesn’t gain superhuman strength or the ability to cast spells or even put up a decent fight. In fact, Subaru gains the painful ability of dying, only to resurrect at a preset point in the past. The anime showed how the inexperienced Subaru gains knowledge and insight through his painfully repetitive death sequences to get rid of the “Fate of Death” curse. [Image by 5pb/MAGES] The trailer repeatedly mentions the date March 23, 2017. It has been noted in the past that the visual novel will be released on this date. 5pb also announced it would release a 11,340 yen limited edition of Re:ZERO Death or Kiss alongside the 8,100 yen standard edition of the game in Japan. However, the creators haven’t confirmed if the visual novel will be available for other gaming consoles besides Sony’s PS4 and PS Vita. RELATED REPORTS BY THE INQUISITR ‘Re:ZERO – Starting Life in Another World – Death or Kiss’ Visual Novel Gets Konomi Suzuki, While Limited Edition Makes You Choose Between Rem And Ram ‘Re:ZERO’ Video Game ‘Death Or Kiss’ Price, Launch Date, Platforms, And Gameplay Revealed: A Battlefield Of Emotions For Subaru, Ram, Rem, Emilia, And Other ‘Kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu’ Anime Girl Characters Re:ZERO Video Game ‘Death or Kiss’ Storyline: Subaru’s Battles Are Still Fatalistic But The Battlefield Is Emotions And A Kiss From Ram, Rem, Emilia, Or Other ‘Kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu’ Anime Girl Characters Is Goal ‘Re:ZERO’ Video Game ‘Death Or Kiss’ Features New Story/Gameplay For Ram, Rem, Emilia, And Other ‘Kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu’ Anime Girl Characters The promotional video doesn’t delve much into Subaru’s ordinary past or his extraordinary journey in the fatalistic world where he meets Emilia and falls in love. As reported by the Inquisitr, Subaru ends up in the Kingdom of Lugnica in the visual novel. Players find themselves in the midst of a contest called the “Beauty Queen Election.” The contest is participated by all the female characters introduced in the anime, namely Emilia, Ram, Rem, Beatrice, Felt, Priscilla, Anastasia, and Crusch. [Image by 5pb/MAGES] The beauties are competing for a royal treasure called “Metia.” A treasure beyond compare, the prize is supposed to have mystical powers. Besides bestowing good luck, the award winner would magically transform into royalty, who will be honored throughout the kingdom. Unfortunately, the award is cursed with “Fate of Death,” and Subaru handles it. After fondling the Metia, Subaru has no option other than try and avoid death by securing a kiss from one of the main heroines, Emilia, Ram, Rem, Beatrice, Felt, Priscilla, Anastasia, and Crusch. [Image by 5pb/MAGES] The gameplay is expected to be quite engaging as the player’s progress depends on the choices the in-game character makes. The developers have promised endless hours of entertainment as each choice slightly alters the progress and outcome. The promotional video implied there could eight possible endings to the Re:ZERO – Starting Life in Another World – Death or Kiss game. The Japanese trailer, titled “Let’s become a novelist,” further hinted there could be eight endings, one each for Emilia, Ram, Rem, Beatrice, Felt, Priscilla, Anastasia, and Crusch.
