Today’s Nintendo Switch news: Kenichiro Takaki working on another (retail) game for the Nintendo Switch, but also…
- Seiken Densetsu Collection
We already know that Kenichiro Takaki is working on a Nintendo Switch game based on the Senran Kagura series, which will be released via the Nintendo eShop. And in an interview featured in this week’s issue of Famitsu magazine, the man reveals he’s also working on another game for the Nintendo Switch, that will be released at retail this time. We don’t know what it is yet, just that it will make use of HD Rumble.
The game should be revealed some time this Summer, alongside Kenichiro Takaki’s other projects.
Seiken Densetsu Collection
The latest issue of Famitsu magazine features an interview with Masaru Oyamada (Producer), about the Seiken Densetsu Collection on Nintendo Switch. He explains that the console was announced right when he was thinking of releasing a collection at retail, with the first three games in the series. The timing could not have been better, because he considers the Nintendo Switch the perfect platform for players to enjoy multiplayer.
He then goes on to explain that nowadays, kids only know about games with HD graphics, not really old-fashioned classics like the Seiken Densetsu series. That’s one of the reasons this collection exists: so that parents and children can enjoy the games together. He also wants players to pay attention to how each entry is connected, and transitions from one to the other.
Good news for fans who did play them: the various tricks from the original version of Seiken Densetsu 1, 2, and 3 were left as is, for the most part.
In that same interview, Masaru Oyamada reveals that he would like to make some announcements for the 25th Anniversary of the series, which generally means “We have something to announce, but we can’t do it now”. Naturally, he wants to create new entries in the series, so he asks fans for their support.
Seiken Densetsu Collection (Switch) comes out on June 1st in Japan.
Remember Picontier, the new game from Skipmore and Kan-Kikuchi (creators of Kamiko, Fairune, and more)? No? Well, time to check out the teaser trailer from last year, then!
Originally announced for the Nintendo 3DS, Picontier is now coming to the Nintendo Switch. We don’t really know if that means the Nintendo 3DS version has been “cancelled” or not.
