Last month, publisher D3 announced that it would be bringing the hack ‘n slash ninja schoolgirl samurai girl to the Nintendo Switch this winter.

Now, according to Tokyo Game Show, a release date is locked in. The game will arrive in Japan (physically and digitally) on December 1 and will follow with a digital-only release in the West on December 8 this year.

The story follows school student Tsumigi Tamaori who is summoned from her sleep to the historical period of Sengoku. Here she must team up with new friends and use her incredible sword skills to defeat the evil of the undead at Honnoji Temple:

SAMURAI MAIDEN follows the story of a high school student who falls asleep after a boring day of history class, waking up alongside historical figure, Nobunaga Oda, known as Japan’s first great unifier. The two end up at the burning Honnoji Temple where the underworld opened up. Having trained in the art of sword fighting as a hobby, Tsumugi is suddenly put to the test in real battle as she receives the evil protection blade from the desperate Nobunaga Oda, who enters the underworld to end the calamity. Even Tsumugi, an admittedly poor history student, recognizes Oda as the hero of the Sengoku period and understands that she must rise to this strange occasion.”

Players can expect to “slay mobs of undead enemies” with Tsumugi’s sword skills – ranging from combo attacks to powerful counters. She will also have help from other ninjas and allies along the way.

There will be special abilities to unlock and a system that also allows these fighting styles to be combined:

“During their journey, players will be able to utilize the ‘Gokage System’, which allows for a rapid combination of Tsumugi’s sword style and Gokage’s powerful ninjutsu. From the slashing and piercing attacks of samurai to the showdown of ninjas, freezing yin yang jutsu and various kunai attacks, players will be able to use these two types of attacks to fight through the hoard of undead enemies.”

‘Let’s Build A Zoo’ is coming to Xbox, Nintendo Switch and PlayStation https://snesheaven.org/lets-build-a-zoo-is-coming-to-xbox-nintendo-switch-and-playstation/ Fri, 16 Sep 2022 13:28:05 +0000 https://snesheaven.org/lets-build-a-zoo-is-coming-to-xbox-nintendo-switch-and-playstation/ Tycoon game “DNA splicing” let’s build a zoo is coming to consoles later this month.

Tycoon game “DNA splicing” let’s build a zoo is coming to consoles later this month.

Published by No More Robots and developed by Springloaded, let’s build a zoo is currently only available on PC via Steam and Epic but on September 29 the title will be available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation and Xbox via Game Pass.

“This is the worst kept secret of all time: let’s build a zoo is coming to Xbox Game Pass, Nintendo Switch, PS4, and PS5 on September 29,” tweeted More Mike Rose bots. “Imagine the original Bullfrog team Themed zoo…then inject over 500,000 animals to breed and bond with

“If you wonder how the hell there are 500,000 animals in this game: you can merge any animal with any other animal, to create new animals”, he continued before showing a image of a duck/crocodile hybrid AKA the crocoduck.

The Dinosaur Island DLC (which released earlier this year) will also be available on all platforms from September 29, adding “a new 20-hour campaign to the game”. It will also be integrated into all physical copies of the game.

Last month, No More Robots company director Mike Rose confirmed that the studio had “half a dozen” games coming to Xbox Game Pass over the next twelve months before teasing let’s build a zoo‘s release on the platform.

Talk to NME last year about the benefits of services like Game Pass, Rose said, “There’s so much data out there to show that being on Game Pass now makes your game sell better everywhere.”

“Technology is changing. You have to move with it. You can’t complain when it does,” he added.

Talk to NME in a recent Boss Level feature, Rose said that with No More Robots he wanted to give people “weird stuff they haven’t played before. What’s the point of publishing games that anyone can publish?

In a four-star review, NME wrote: “let’s build a zoo is a fun and smart take on the zoo sim that will let you micromanage everything, but never overwhelm you. It’s cute, the music is awesome, and the morality system adds replayability that can sometimes be lacking in this genre.

Your beloved team of Pokemon cannot come with you, regardless of where you currently store them.


Nintendo held a Bumper Direct on Tuesday with so much information that you might have missed the new N64 games announced for NSO’s expansion pack. Pokemon Stages 1 and 2 were among them, but there was bad news in the fine print.


A small message appeared at the bottom of the screen revealing “Pokemon cannot be transferred to these games”. The original games allowed players to transfer their Pokemon teams from Game Boy titles to Stadium. You won’t be able to do this on Switch.

RELATED: The Nintendo Direct and Sony State Of Play Showed An Industry Full Of Ideas With Hype In All The Wrong Places

Nintendo’s life pointed out the fine print after the fact, and Serebii’s Joe Merrick attempted to explain Nintendo’s decision. In order for Game Boy teams to become usable in Stadium, the game had to make frequent connections to the Transfer Pak on which the Pokémon were stored. This would mean the Switch would have to be constantly hooked up to a 3DS, a console some have suggested could be a solution since the old Pokemon games are on it.

GAME VIDEO OF THE DAY

Merrick then reminded Pokemon fans that online support for the 3DS would end in March anyway. The thread then goes on to explain why other suggested solutions probably wouldn’t work, such as bringing Pokemon Home into the mix. The conclusion is that transfers between Game Boy and Stadium games on NSO could be made in the future, but only if those original games are eventually added to the console’s online library.

It’s a very real possibility, of course, as there have been rumors of Game Boy titles coming to NSO for over a year. They were actually expected when Nintendo announced the expansion pack, but the Genesis got a library instead. For now, you’ll have to play Stadium without your trusty team of powerful Pokemon, but there’s hope if Game Boy games are ever added to the Switch.

Apple today released tvOS 16, the latest version of the tvOS operating system available for Apple TV 4K and ‌Apple TV‌ HD.

The ‌tvOS 16 update can be downloaded through the Settings app on ‌‌Apple TV‌‌ by going to “System” -> “Software update.” If you have automatic software updates enabled, your Apple TV will automatically upgrade to ‌‌tvOS 16.

tvOS 16 updates typically contain far fewer new features than we see in iOS or macOS updates, and tvOS 16 is no exception.

The update brings game controller support for Nintendo Joy-Cons and the Nintendo Pro Controller. When Apple’s Matter finally launches, the ‌Apple TV‌ with tvOS 16 installed will support it and provide improved interoperability between smart home accessories from different companies.

tvOS 16 also brings multi-device connectivity, a feature that allows developers to integrate ‌Apple TV‌ apps with ‌iPhone‌, ‌iPad‌, and Apple Watch apps to unlock new experiences on ‌Apple TV‌.

Multi-user profiles have been enhanced through the use of a shared keychain, which means users won’t need to sign in and choose their profile when launching an ‌Apple TV‌ app.

Other more minor changes and improvements in tvOS 16 are:

  • New SwiftUI elements that developers can take advantage of in their own apps.
  • Users can now add additional family members in Control Center
  • New rich previews for Apple TV+ content to boost discovery
  • Intensity levels are now displayed onscreen in Apple Fitness+ workouts, with levels ranging from “easy” to “all-inclusive”.
  • New toggle for 24 hour or 12 hour time formats.
  • A new Hover Text option in Accessibility

Nintendo Switch sale goes from highest RPG tier to lowest price ever https://snesheaven.org/nintendo-switch-sale-goes-from-highest-rpg-tier-to-lowest-price-ever/ Sat, 10 Sep 2022 22:34:58 +0000 https://snesheaven.org/nintendo-switch-sale-goes-from-highest-rpg-tier-to-lowest-price-ever/ Nintendo has a number of different games sold on its eShop marketplace.

Nintendo has a number of different games sold on its eShop marketplace. If you’re looking for something new to play, you can never go wrong with what was considered one of the best RPGs at the time. The game is Undertale, the game that takes to the next platform and is now a major Switch game. Even though this particular sale takes place, the game’s price has dropped to an all-time low on the Nintendo eShop.

Undertale has been ported to various platforms since its release in 2015 and came to the Switch in 2018. It normally costs $14.99 in the eShop. The price is not worth the money, but might not be worth it for those who have already played the game on the computer. For those who have a Switch, or want to play the game again on that platform or for the first time altogether, it’s worth $8.99.

That’s a much better deal for this game due to its lowest price yet (don’t assume DekuDeals). However, this particular sale ends on September 22, so you only have a little more time to take advantage of the offer.

When the game began to be ported and ported elsewhere, The Undertale and its solo creator had garnered more followers over the years, and the accolades continued to reach large audiences. Undertale tops the list, so Metacritic ranks the highest-rated Switch games of all time. The score is 93. The user score has an extremely positive score of 8.2 / lack of precision.

The game has “appeared” in the world and explores a complex, comforting, and unpredictable world full of dangerous monsters, the online store preview says. “Stick the skeleton, dance with a robot, cook with a fishmonger… or destroy everyone in the house. Your future is to decide.

Fox recently shared an update for the next chapter in the newest game, Deltarune. All parts of your books are free to study now as demos. However, you cannot do that until the first chapter of this book is free. Fox said no new chapters will arrive this year.

Recent Nintendo Switch rumors have suggested that the Nintendo console may soon be getting what was considered one of the best games of 2021: It takes two. The multiplayer game from Hazelight Studios and Electronic Arts won awards last year and even managed to win Game of the Year at The Game Awards 2021, among other accolades. If the recent rumors pan out as people suspect, we may soon hear about this game’s Nintendo Switch report during a Nintendo Direct that’s supposed to take place this month.

The first indication of this game coming to the Nintendo Switch came when prominent leaker The Snitch posted a line of emojis on his Discord server. Around the Nintendo Switch emojis, the images used showed things like a tree, a clock, a bee, and a book, among others.

After analyzing the message, The supporters of the Vif came to the conclusion that it was a clue to It takes two come to the switch. The theory behind this is that the emojis represent different levels or key parts of the game. The tree and the cuckoo clock are levels of It takes two for example, while the bee probably represents the game’s wasp battles. One of the biggest giveaways was the red book near the end of the teaser which was apparently meant to be a stand-in for Dr. It takes two which takes the form of red”love book.”

Shortly after this leak was shared, Jeff Grubb spoke about this rumor in the latest episode of The Nintendo Hut. He referenced The Snitch’s post saying that It takes two is one of the games that Grubb has heard will be featured in the Nintendo Direct.

This Nintendo Direct itself hasn’t even been announced yet, but considering everything we’ve already talked about, people are already pretty convinced the Direct is coming this month. It’s rumored to take place in about two weeks, so if so, look for it. It takes two be part of the games presented.
