Here’s some screenshots for PixARK:
PixARK (Switch) comes out this Summer in Japan, and later this year in Europe and North America.
A few days ago, Bethesda announced that Wolfenstein: Youngblood will be released on July 26th on all platforms, including the Nintendo Switch. Unfortunately, there was a catch: there will be no retail release for the regular edition on that platform.
But it turns out there’s no physical version of the standard edition anywhere, period. The product page on Amazon (NB: affiliate link) reveals that the North American retail release is just a download code in a box. That certainly explains the lack of retail release in Europe!

Final Fantasy VI 25th Anniversary
To celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Final Fantasy VI, Famitsu published an interview with some of the developers in its latest issue (released last week in Japan). Brian Clark from One Million Power went and translated the full interview, that you can check out by clicking here!
Here’s the various developers that were interviewed:
- Eiji Nakamura (Sound Engineer)
- Kasuko Shibuya (Graphics Director)
- Hironobu Sakaguchi (Creator of the Final Fantasy series)
- Yoshinori Kitase (Director)
- Minoru Akao (Sound Programmer)
Here’s an excerpt:
Why did you choose to use a world where technology and fantasy are so intermingled together?
(Sakaguchi) We weren’t particularly immersed in typical fantasy about swords and sorcery in the first place. So we thought it would be alright to have a fantasy world where technology existed. We were able to express things in various ways due to the evolution of hardware and development techniques, and we’d gotten more used to game creation as well. And I feel like Taka (Tetsuya Takahashi) being a big mech enthusiast had something to do with it too (Laughs)
Furu-Chara Friends: Hoppe-chan to Sanrio Characters
Neos have announced a game for the Nintendo Switch: Furu-Chara Friends: Hoppe-chan to Sanrio Characters. It’s a City Management game featuring characters from Sunhoseki (such as Hoppe) and Sanrio (such as Hello Kitty and Pompompurin). The goal of the game is to grow your city by collecting various items, and clearing various missions. Players can also design their own characters, decorate their room, and more.
Furu-Chara Friends: Hoppe-chan to Sanrio Characters will be released on July 11th in Japan, where it will cost 4 800 Yen + taxes.

WorldNeverland – Elnea Kingdom
Last week, althi released a new Software update for WorldNeverland – Elnea Kingdom, adding the Interior Mode. Unfortunately, that update is causing an issue: the screen becomes way too dark in Dungeons and Challenge Dungeons. The developers are currently working on a fix.
