Fire Emblem Fates

Fire Emblem Fates has been released a few days ago in Japan and many have been trying to fully understand the new gameplay mechanics powering the new entry of the series developed by Intelligent Systems. Among the several gameplay mechanics are skills, special abilities that give each unit some specific perks. As there are quite a lot of skills in Fire Emblem Fates, many of them working a bit differently than in Fire Emblem Awakening, it can be difficult for some players to create an effective combination of skills.

Later this week the Japanese magazine Famitsu is going to offer a rather handy way to learn more about the Fire Emblem Fates skills and create powerful units. The next issue of the magazine, which will hit Japanese stands this Thursday, will include a Fire Emblem Fates skills guide that will surely help more than a few players. You can check out a low-quality preview image of the guide by going at the end of this post.

Yesterday we have reported that the Fire Emblem Fates writer has recently clarified his role in the creation of the game’s story. Judging from the precise translation of his statement, it doesn’t look like he’s trying to distance himself from the game, as some have speculated in the past few days.

Fire Emblem Fates has been released in Japan as two different versions including two different story paths featuring a different challenge level, different characters and more. A third story path is going to be released later this month as DLC, a path where the player will not align with any of the two Kingdoms.

Fire Emblem Fates is going to be released sometime next year in North America and Europe exclusively on Nintendo 3DS. More on the Western version of the game will be coming soon so stay tuned for all the latest news on the new entry of the successful Fire Emblem series.

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.
