Gaming News weekend 32

It’s that time again, time to bring this week’s handheld gaming news. This week, we have news about Pikmin 3 Deluxe Announced, The Kind Camomille Funded in 36 Hours, Story of Seasons FOMT Update, Kickstarter Beasts of Maravilla Adds Stretch Goals and Ova Magica Needs to be Kickstarted.

Pikmin 3 Deluxe Announced

Great news: Pikmin 3 is making the leap to Nintendo Switch. I played the game after launch on WiiU and loved it (as you can read in my thoughts here). These tiny Pikmin are ready to make your acquaintance in their biggest adventure yet, so take a peek at your Pikmin army in the game’s debut trailer.

Pikmin 3 Deluxe delivers a full suite of additions and enhancements, including the ability to play the whole Story mode in co-op with a friend, new side-story missions which can also be played in co-op and all the Mission mode DLC stages from the original game’s release. With new difficulty options, lock-on targeting, optional hints and the choice to play at a more relaxed pace, it’s easier than ever to join in on the Pikmin fun, enjoy the game’s beautiful scenery and get a taste of what this vibrant world has to offer. Fun features from the original game also return in Pikmin 3 Deluxe, such as the in-game camera, which allows players to snap photos of the game’s lush environments and curious creatures from a pint-sized perspective.

Glad I kept my guidebook and Amiibo!

The Kind Camomille Funded in 36 Hours!

Just this past week, Kickstarter project The Kind Camomille kicked off with a goal of CAD $ 4,200. We featured the launch here on the site (find the article here) and are happy to report that it got funded in 36 hours!

Stretch goals 1 is added, for CAD $ 5,200: Fishing. Camomille would be able to fish in the sea and island lakes. Once the line is cast and you get a bite, you’ll need to react quickly to catch the fish. Camomille would document the fish in her Album of Discoveries and then release it back into the water.

Interesting to see just what the future holds for Camomille!

Story of Seasons FOMT Update

Story of Seasons Friends of Mineral Town received its first update and introduces a change many players have been requesting. When you go to the mines, one of the player’s goals was to get the mythic ore. It now appears more often and will be easier to find.

In addition Brandon will now have more dialogue and will generally talk more! Of course the latest patch also includes general bug fixes to make the game run smoother.

Kickstarter Beasts of Maravilla Adds Stretch Goals

This week we featured Kickstarter Beasts of Maravilla as well. With one more week to go, this Kickstarter had a goal of $ 10,000 and has already reached more than $ 20,000. With this, they reached their last original stretch goal of the Selfie Mode.

So, two new stretch goals have been added:
$ 22,500 – New Illustrated Opening Cinematic showing Marina’s journey to Maravilla island
$ 40,000 – New unique species types will be added to each ecological zone in the game for more unique moments and behaviors to photograph

I should think the $ 40,000 goal is a bit much, but then, you never know what may happen in the next 7 days!

Ova Magica Needs to be Kickstarted

This is shaping up like a Kickstarter week! Another one that I have on my radar. Another cute farming sim in the works. Developer Claudia from Germany proudly presented her reveal trailer in May, and now the first steps have been made on Kickstarter.

The project needs your vote to get off the ground, so be sure to follow it so it can lead to a true Kickstarter project! You can find it here.
