Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore
Last week, Nintendo sent a press release to apoligise for the lack of sufficient information about the Japanese version of Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore. To be more precise, the company had not previously specified that this Nintendo Switch port would be based on the European version of Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE.
This is a pretty important point because that version lacked some additional content (only found in the Japanese version), and so all versions on Nintendo Switch will lack it since the port itself is based on the European version.
For Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore, Nintendo is aiming for a simultaneous release worldwide, which is probably why they used the European version as base (it already has the full localisation in English, French, and German, along with Japanese voices. As a result, the Nintendo Switch port has the same language options as the European release on Wii U).
However, the problem isn’t so much that Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore is based on the European version of Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE on Wii U, but rather that Nintendo did not communicate that from the getgo. What’s more, up until October 10th, the product page showed pictures from the Japanese Wii U version, which could cause confusion.
But since then, the pictures have been replaced with screenshots from the Nintendo Switch version, and a notice has been added to clarify that Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore is based on the European version of Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE on Wii U.
Finally, Nintendo has announced that players who have already pre-purchased the game on the Nintendo eShop will be able to ask for a refund.
Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore (Switch) comes out on January 17th worldwide.
Brain Training for Nintendo Switch
Brain Training for Nintendo Switch has recently popped up on the website of the Australian Classification Board, which brought to light an interesting fact about the game: it has been co-developed by indieszero:
It’s not the first time they get to work on a Nintendo game, as they previously worked on titles such as NES Remix and the ill-fated Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido.
Brain Training for Nintendo Switch (Switch) comes out on December 27th in Japan, and January 3rd in Europe.

Here’s the latest episode of Nintendo Minute, which is about the Nintendo Live 2019 event that was held earlier this month in Japan:
Nintendo Minute is never a minute! Last week we did the coolest thing ever. We went to Nintendo Live in Kyoto, Japan! It was such a cool experience and we wanted to share everything we saw with you guys. We were able to check out the Splatoon 2 virtual concert, the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate World Challenge Cup and so much more! We hope you like this video. Thanks so much for watching and we’ll see you next week!
