The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening

Here’s the English version of the overview trailer for The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening:

The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening (Switch – eShop) comes out on September 20th worldwide.

Astral Chain

The latest Devblog post for Astral Chain is now live, and this one is from Naoki Hiraiwa (Sound Designer) who came to talk about sound effects. Click here to check it out!

Here’s an excerpt:

There are also a few systems in place in ASTRAL CHAIN where sound effects help you out as you play. One of these is the Beast Legion’s item-searching ability. When the Beast Legion detects an item nearby, you’ll hear a sound that you can follow towards the spot where that item is buried. Then the Beast can get digging! You can use the Beast Legion to find items while you’re just wandering around, too, by the way – not just during investigation scenes.

Six Months Earnings Release

Nintendo have announced that their Six Months Earnings Release will take place on October 31st. In other words, the usual meeting with investors will take place on November 1st.

You get them via a Serial Code to be entered on the Nintendo eShop, sent to all subscribers who not only downloaded the game, but also completed the first quest.

Nintendo Switch Online (Japan)

Nintendo have announced that the price of some Nintendo Switch Online subscriptions plans is going up on October 1st in Japan (due to the VAT hike going into effect on that day). Here’s those that are affected:

  • Individual 1 month subscription: 300 Yen > 306 Yen
  • Individual 3 months subscription: 800 Yen > 815 Yen

All other plans (including 12 months subscriptions and the Family plan) are not impacted by this increase. Also, since this is due to a change in Japanese VAT rate, no price increase is planned for Europe or North America.
