Daily Briefs (Aug. 1): Undertale / Shantae: Half-Genie Hero / Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

Today’s Daily Briefs: Japanese release date for Undertale, but also…

  • Shantae: Half-Genie Hero
  • Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night
  • Wakuwaku Sweets Amai Okashi ga Dekirukana?
  • Disgaea 1 Complete


Today, it was announced that Undertal will be released on September 15th in Japan. Quite interestingly, this is a Saturday, and unless you’re called Monster Hunter or Dragon Quest, you generally do not come out on a Saturday. But September 15th 2018 just happens to be the 3rd Anniversary of the game, which is why it’s getting such an unusual release day. It’s not clear if this will be the same in Europe and North America just yet.

Undertale will be available on the Nintendo eShop and at retail. The retail version includes a story booklet, as well as one of various retailer bonuses. There will even be a Collector’s Edition, sold exclusively by Fangamer Japan, including various goodies.

Also, here’s some pictures of the game (may contain spoilers):

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero

Yesterday, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero players got a nice surprise: Jammies Mode, released as a thank you gift for the successful Kickstarter campaign. It’s available for free to all players, on all platforms, and for all versions of the game, regardless of whether you’re a backer or not.

In this new storyline, Shantae wants to throw a big slumber party for everyone who’s helped her out on this recent adventure, and you’re invited! Her mission: To traverse Sequin Land in naught but her jam jams, and hand out invitations to everyone she meets!


This time around, Shantae substitutes hair-whipping and dancing for pillow fighting, floating on a snoozy cloud, and deploying devastating sheep attacks! As with previous extra modes, Shantae can collect Gems to power up her abilities and lay waste to monsters! And there are bonus images for every win condition, so be sure to unlock them all!

Here’s a trailer showcasing this mode:

The update also includes another bonus: the Blaster Master Zero Transformation Dance, which allows you to transform into Sophia III from Blaster Master Zero. Here’s how you can get it:

Once you’ve acquired the Super Revive Dance from the Snake Lady salesman (in any of the main Shantae Modes), you can trade it back to her for the Sophia III Transformation Dance!
