Astral Chain

Nintendo have revealed a web commercial for Astral Chain in Japan:

Astral Chain (Switch) comes out on August 30th worldwide.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses

Last week, Vandal shared some sales data for Spain, and revealed that Fire Emblem: Three Houses is off to a great start in Spain: it sold no less than 19 500 units in Spain, making it the 6th best debut in the country this year. In comparison, Fire Emblem Fates sold 8 000 units at launch, on Nintendo 3DS.

In the United Kingdom, the game was once again #1 of sales, which is quite unusual for a Japanese SRPG. What’s more, it did so despite sales dropping by 60%, which is a fairly solid drop for a second week.

Finally, here’s the Accolades Trailer for the game:
