We’ve known about Nintendo’s upcoming mobile game, Dragalia Lost, for quite some time. After testing the waters with a few different projects–Miitomo, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, and Fire Emblem Heroes–we are finally seeing Nintendo invest in the mobile in an entirely new way: an original IP. Teaming up with expert Tokyo-based mobile developers Cygames, Nintendo is making a strong case for itself when the game releases on September 27. The story tells about a world inhabited by both dragons and humans, at one point in harmony. A sacred shard is able to protect the world against monsters… however, it is fading in power. That is where you as the protagonist steps in. Taking the role as an Alberian Prince (which happens to have his fair share of dragon blood flowing through his veins) you are tasked to save the world. Even better, you team up with one of the ancient dragons to liberate the world. As you may have noted in the game’s … [Read more...] about Nintendo’s First Original Mobile Game, Dragalia Lost, Detailed in Latest Direct

Nintendo has taken down two popular ROM sites, loveRETRO and loveROMS, sites both owned and operated by Jacob Mathais of Mathais Designs LLC. This is just one of the many legal moves that we’ve seen Nintendo take to protect their IP with many ROM sites not even hosting Nintendo in fear of legal action, and we’ve also seen Nintendo take steps to protect their IP by taking down various fan projects over the years. For those not familiar with the concept, ROMs can be used with an emulator of a Nintendo handheld or console to allow people to play titles for free as if they were playing on the original hardware. It’s a way that you can play games like Super Mario 64 on your PC, phone, PSP, or almost any other open device with enough power. The lawsuit documents found by TorrentFreak highlight the exact grounds of the lawsuit including distributing “the proprietary BIOS software for several of Nintendo’s video game systems,” … [Read more...] about ROM Sites Hosting Nintendo Games Taken Down For Copyright Infringement

It’s not too often that you see a brand new Sega Mega Drive game (with cartridge!) in this day and age — even with the advent of Kickstarter projects. However, that is exactly what UK-based developer Bitmap Bureau is hoping to do with Xeno Crisis. And now, thanks to a new stretch goal milestone the games may be making it out to some current gen consoles as well — namely PC (via Steam) and the Nintendo Switch. For those who haven’t heard of the Kickstarter campaign, Xeno Crisis is an old-school, co-op top-down shooting game that draws inspiration from 80’s and 90’s titles like Contra and Shock Troopers. But that isn’t where the 80’s inspiration ends, because originally the game was only planned to release physically for Sega Mega Drive, Sega Genesis, or digital versions for emulators. The developer, Bitmap Bureau, aren’t novices to developing given they have developed 88 Heroes as well … [Read more...] about Xeno Crisis Smashes Stretch Goal, Opening Pre-orders for Nintendo Switch and PC
