Ghost Parade

Gaming News – Weekend

Time again for some gaming news! This time, we cover several topics: Brain Trainer for Switch has a release date, Moon is coming to Switch in English, visual novel Soulslayer is special, an introduction trailer for Doraemon Story of Seasons, scary Ghost Parade can scratch your Halloween itch.

Anti-RPG Moon is coming to the Switch

This week, Twitter was aflutter when Moon landed on the Switch in Japan. A cult-classic that immediately landed on number one in the charts in Japan, and knocked Dragon Quest XI S straight off the top position.

What caught my attention is that Moon is said to be the anti-RPG. Developer Onion writes on their website:

Have you ever played an RPG and wondered…
“Why is it OK that this hero is breaking into houses and stealing items from people’s drawers??”
“Why is it OK that this hero is killing thousands of innocent monsters??”
Moon is a game about turning those tropes upside down, and seeing what really happens behind the scenes of your favorite RPG videogames.

Sounds intriguing! I haven’t been able to find a definite English date yet, but we will keep you posted.


Trailer for Doraemon Story of Seasons introduces all characters

Our site is overrun with Doraemon Story of Seasons articles, as we find the fans really want more info, pronto! To celebrate the release this week, Bandai Namco has released a launch trailer that makes sure everyone knows who all of the characters are and gives people a chance to see its English localization.

Don’t forget: if you are interested, there’s an English demo is now available on the eShop.

Soulslayer: visual novel in an ancient Chinese setting

Some games really need to get more attention in between all of the blockbusters being released. Soulslayer is such a game. It was created by Navila, a Japanese studio of women (how awesome is that?! SO AWESOME!), and taking place in an ancient Chinese setting. The artwork to reflects that, as well as the sound effects and music. This visual novel doesn’t have the typical Japanese “anime” look that the majority of visual novels has. Nor does it have that stereotypical “western” look like Dream Daddy or Akash.

Soulslayer is something new and different. Ashromer reviewed the game (find the review here) and concludes: ” Well done Navila”


Brain Training has a release date 

A week ago I mentioned that Dr Kawashima’s Brain Training is coming to the Switch. We now have a western release date: January 3rd in Europe and Australia. No date yet for America. If you pick up the physical game, it comes with the stylus included to use on the touchscreen. That alone is ample reason for me to go for this game!

Pokédex smartphone case for Pokémon fans

Bandai’s official shop Premium Bandai is releasing a special Pokédex smartphone case in Japan in March 2020. The smartphone case is based on the very first Pokédex we saw in the Pokémon anime and will be made for the iPhone X. Pre-orders are live for 3,980 Yen.

It looks so cool, but I must ad that I have no experience at all with Premium Bandai. Still, I can imagine if your a fan this is a gadget you’d love to get your hands on!

Ghost Parade adventure

As ever, this time of year, a lot of scary games are waiting to jump at your from your Switch. One that caught my eye is Ghost Parade, that is releasing on October 31. Here’s the description of a game that looks very good indeed:

“Your walk home takes an other-worldly turn as you become lost in a dark, mysterious forest. Join a mystical battle to protect the supernatural inhabitants from those who are trying to level their home for profit. Team up with 30 ghostly companions – each one lending its unique magical ability to help you on your way. Explore beautifully realized environments in this spine-tingling scrolling action adventure brimming with surprises and original character designs. Working together, everyone has a ghost of a chance to safely make it home.”

That’s it for now, enjoy the rest of your weekend!
