Fire Emblem Fates

Fire Emblem Fates, the new entry of the Fire Emblem series known as Fire Emblem If in Japan releasing next week on Nintendo 3DS, has received its first review this week. The role playing game developed by Intelligent Systems has been reviewed in this week’s issue of Famitsu, receiving a nice 36/40 score, with the four reviewers giving the game a 9/10 each.

The Fire Emblem Fates Famitsu review is now available in English thanks to Kantopia, allowing English speaking players to learn what the reviewers liked in the new entry of the long running series. You can check out the translated scan by going at the end of this post.

This week’s issue of Famitsu also includes a big Fire Emblem Fates coverage detailing the new relationships system and every other important feature of the game. Kantopia has also translated this huge coverage and you can find the translated scans alongside the translated review at the end of this post.

Yesterday the Fire Emblem Fates Japanese website has been updated with some new character profiles. The profiles have also been translated into English so even Western players can learn all there is to know about the game’s characters.

Fire Emblem Fates will launch in Japan as Fire Emblem If on June 26th exclusively on Nintendo 3DS. The game will be available in two different versions called White Kingdom and Black Kingdom, which include a different challenge level, a different second half of the game and more. The two different story paths will also be made available as DLC, alongside a third one that is not available in either version.

Fire Emblem Fates will also be released as two different versions in North America and Europe sometime next year. We will keep you updated on the Western release of the game as soon as more comes in on it so stay tuned for all the latest news.

Thanks, Kantopia

Ten million people play The First Descendant in its first week

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.

Nike, the maker of high-quality shoes, is working with Bandai Namco, the company that makes the Tekken series, to make a pair of sneakers. The fun competition is part of the franchise’s 30th anniversary celebrations. You can get your own pair for $250 or the equivalent in your country, though they’ll probably be worth a lot more on the sneakerhead black market.

Two pairs of Tekken 8 x Nike Air Foamposite One Fist sneakers are set to come out in September 2024, according to shoe fan Sole Retriever (thanks, VGC). The designs are based on Kazuya and Jin, two main characters in the series. You can get them at Nike and some other stores. People who like hypebeasts and fighting games are likely to buy these quickly, so if you like Tekken and shoes that make people talk, you should probably act fast.

Should Bandai Namco and Nike work together? What do you think? Are you going to fight for your own pair? Make sure to take good care of your shoes and keep their value in the comments section below.
