Aaaan that is why "anime" as a descriptor is worthless and meaningless.

Riki isn't great because he's a cutesy fluff ball with wacky eyes or whatever. He owns because he's a dead-beat dad who joins the hero's group to support and protect his seven kids.

Riki also owns because Riki sneaky

Anime as a critical adjective is largely useless, but I always take it more to refer to the cliches that show up very commonly in anime moreso than anything else. For good or ill, anime and Japanese games have a real problem with lockstep cliches.

I know this isn't a Switch thread, but someone drop a couple more exclusives for me besides Mario and Zelda, so I can really confirm my decision to buy a Switch. Pretty please and thank you.

Octopath, SMT5, and Metroid Prime 4 are the big ones that have my attention. I haven't been watching the console too much though so I'm also interested to know what else there is (specifically stuff that's not on PC as well).

Mario X Rabbids is an incredibly solid SRPG. Also Mario Kart 8 if you don't have it for WiiU, Splatoon 2 is a great shooter, Pokken Tournement is a fun fighter.

Those are all the current good exclusives.

They're making a new main RPG series Pokemon game for the Switch. It's the first time a main series Pokemon game will be on Nintendos console, rather than their handheld.

It's already in development.

Cancelled my physical order today, and have preordered digital.

I think for the sheer amount of hours I'm going to be spending on this game, I like the idea of it always being there ready to go.

Any word on how long the game will be? I put about 100 hours into the first game and kinda burned out just before the ending.

Also this game better have some reference to Reyn Time. Reyn Time was the best time

Xenoblade Chronicles had an average playtime of about 75 hours from just doing plot advancement, with about double that if you went insane and did all the sidequests. XCX was a bit of a trainwreck with its plot, but had about 150 hours of general content. So there's your ballpark.

Nope, it just lurks there. Completely harmless.


I just ordered myself one (1) fine copy of this game, never played any Xenoblade games but I trust the hype and my desire for good action RPG on good old Nintendo Switch

That is my story of ordering this game, see you in about 2 weeks when I receive my very own physical copy.

Isn't a large part of this that only Otaku in Japan are willing to spending all their disposable income on stuff instead of saving it leading to their pop-culture to be incredibly skewed towards Otaku?

I was pleasantly surprised that Zeke and Rex are basically Irishmen and there's a handful of Aussie/Brits in there. English voices all sounded pretty good in the trailer, even the Nopon guy sounded a bit like Riki

The English voices in the other trailer left me cold and ready to turn on the Japanese voices, but this trailer makes me feel a bit better about them.

It's fusion, I don't gotta explain shit.


I really have no idea how accurate these accents are (I''m assuming they're authentic) but it was kinda hard to parse a lot of those lines for me. Hopefully it'll be better in the game proper.

I didn't get the chance to play XCX, but I'll probably pick this one up just because the first game was so good. It looks a lot more... well, obnoxious, but I'm willing to give it a chance.

That's great news. What is with Nintendo first and second parties dropping sound balancing options anyway? Zelda and Mario both had no volume options.

In Xenoblade Chronicles X, there was a unqiue song that played whenever you entered the Skell flight module. If you were flying around for a long time you got to hear the whole thing, but the reality is that often you'll be popping in and out of the flight mode constantly to get over small gaps. Unlike in that video the song doesn't remember where it was in last played, it just starts back from the beginning. So you'll keep hearing the start of the flight song over and over. Its dumb as hell.

Pretty accurate, given they're the natural accents of the VA's .

It's a rather nice callback to Nintendo EU using British actors because Nintendo US didn't want to localize Xenoblade Chronicles.

so far the most disappointing thing is breaking tradition of mixing and matching goofy outfits for your characters. I loved that about the other games and think Rex's diver helmet Quasimodo backpack is awful. I'm switching to Zeke asap.

I'm taking two days off, though that's partially because I'm moving over the weekend as well.

Still, no shame. It's your vacation, use it how you want. I'm not big on travel so I take days off to play a new game all the time. I love that Nintendo has been releasing things on Fridays instead of Tuesdays, because I can just turn it into a long weekend instead of weekend-work monday-take tuesday off

Nintendo of Australia's twitter account may have more or less spoiled two eventual party members with the way they have worded their latest tweets.

Entirely obvious choices on who they are, but nothing we definitively know for sure based on pre release media alone.
