It’s that time again, time for the weekend gaming news! This weekend, we’ve got news about: physical editions for Switch games by Super Rare Games, an Animal Crossing Anime coming in the Ciao Magazine, a release date for Fairy Tail RPG, an update for Automachef and the Final Fantasy concerts schedule.
Want to collect more physical games for Switch?
Over the years, many debates about going digital or physical have been waged. I know many people really love to be able to have the game in their hands. And if you want to give the game as a present, going digital isn’t nearly as fun as the actual game box. But less and less games actually get a physical release.
There are publishers out there who make limited copies, and often collectors items, for videogames that are otherwise only available digitally. Super Rare Games is a game publisher based in London. It specializes in bringing physical indie titles to Nintendo Switch, similar to Limited Run Games. However, Super Rare Games primarily focuses on Nintendo Switch carts (at least, so far).
At the moment Super Rare Games have The Gardens Between newly available, and there are a couple of other titles you can still buy. Check out their offer, and you can find our review for The Gardens Between here.
Animal Crossing Manga coming!
How fun is this? Animal Crossing has always inspired fans to be creative. There’s a little movie you can view on Youtube (Dobutsu no Mori: The Animal Crossing Movie). And now, there’s Manga coming!
Here’s what the Anime News Network published:
” The January 2020 issue of Shogakukan‘s Ciao magazine announced on Saturday that Nintendo‘s Animal Crossing (Dōbutsu no Mori) game franchise is inspiring a manga that will premiere in the magazine’s February 2020 issue, which ships on December 28. The manga by artist Minori Katō is titled Atsumare Dōbutsu no Mori: Nonbiri Shima Dayori (Gather Animal’s Forest: Carefree Island News).
The manga will follow a protagonist named Hana and her struggles on an unpopulated island.”
Fairy Tail by Gust and Koei Tecmo has a release date
There are a couple developers that have my immediate interest when they announce a new game. Gust is one of them, thanks to my love for their Atelier series. So I’m glad to tell you that there is news about their upcoming title Fairy Tail RPG.
Koei Tecmo Games will publish the Gust-developed RPG for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Steam Worldwide on March 19 in 2020. Aside from the regular game there is also a physical Guild Box editions and a Digital Deluxe edition. You can find more details about these editions at Siliconera
Update for Automachef
Do you have Automachef on your Switch? It’ll please you to know that there’s an update with more content available now.
Here’s a few of the big content additions and changes:
- One new machine: Oven.
- Three new levels.
- Four new recipes: Cornbread, Pumpkin Pie, Roast Turkey, Sweet Potatoes Side.
- Several new ingredients: Pumpkin, Fresh Herbs, Onion, Cornmeal, Sweet Potato, Milk, etc.
- Two new contracts for Contracts Mode.
Aside from the new content, some bugs have been fixed and some things tweaked to make gameplay more smooth. As you can see, the update has a definite Thanksgiving theme going!
Distant Worlds: Music from Final Fantasy
Music is often a very powerful tool in a game, that can really keep you spellbound. I know I love my Games Music playlist, which lets me enjoy a bit of gaming even though I’m at my daytime job.
Going to a concert to listen to let the musical experience really take you away to faraway worlds is something I have yet to do, but I know other gamers (and non-gamers too) who have experienced it in the big concert halls.
There are two tours going on at the moment for the Final Fantasy music: Distant Worlds and A New World. For Distant Worlds, two more places have been added, Montreal and Orlando. You can find them here.
A New World tour starts in 2020, and the place they can be seen are here.
That’s it for us, enjoy your gaming!
