Nintendo is Proud of the Relationship between the Switch and DLC

Downloadable Content or DLC has become a staple of the gaming industry in recent days. What could either be an expansion in content or an unethical business practice has been a subject of discussion. However, Nintendo seems to have taken their own approach to DLC and they look like they’re proud.

According to Shinya Takahashi, Nintendo’s Entertainment Planning and Development Division general manager. DLC has been a good fit for Switch and they want to keep on improving this as they embrace the digital era’s advancements.

“I think that titles that you download when you purchase have a very good compatibility with the idea of additional content,” Takahashi told IGN. “I believe the Nintendo Switch, compared to most of our recent hardware, makes some of the best use of the ability to download titles in their entirety, since it’s a console that you can also carry as a portable.”

On the other hand, the directive also talked about the aesthetic potential the Nintendo Switch’s hardware has. The heterogeneous appeal it has and the fact that the console has been a success has led to Mr. Takahashi to believe that there are still possibilities for Nintendo Switch designs and colors.

“One of the great strengths of the Nintendo Switch is that though you can play it as a console, you can also separate these two controllers from the hardware. This gives us a lot of possibilities that we could consider for the future in terms of what you could attach,” Takahashi said.

The Nintendo Switch has been a subject of discussion as of late. The sales numbers of the console have already beaten those of the PlayStation 2’s initial launch year in Japan. Could we see more things come from the Nintendo Switch? Probably new designs or addressing of the storage management issues? It seems like 2018 is going to be full of surprises delivered by Nintendo.

I always wanted to be a journalist who listens. The Voice of the Unspoken and someone heavily involved in the gaming community. From playing as a leader of a competitive multi-branch team to organizing tournaments for the competitive scene to being involved in a lot of gaming communities. I want to keep moving forward as a journalist.

The upcoming game from the creators of the Danganronpa series has found a publisher in Sony subsidiary Aniplex. However, it’s worth noting that it won’t be initially released on the PS5. It is highly likely that The Hundred Line: Last Defense Academy will be released on Sony’s system at a later date, just like Master Detective Archives: Rain Code in October. However, the development team is currently focusing on prioritizing the release of their latest title on the Nintendo Switch and PC.

Described as a strategy game, the title allows players to step into the shoes of teenager Takumi Sumino, who resides in the perpetually secure Tokyo Residential Complex. When monsters suddenly unleash chaos upon the town, Takumi finds himself thrust into the Last Defense Academy. His mission? To protect the school alongside 14 other students for a grueling 100 days.

As one would anticipate, alongside the strategic gameplay, it is crucial to foster strong relationships with your comrades. Moreover, the outcome of the game can vary greatly, with a staggering 100 possible endings contingent upon the choices you make. We will reach out to Aniplex to inquire about the possibility of a PS5 port. However, it is important to note that Aniplex operates independently from PlayStation, as it falls under the Sony Music umbrella.

Most new games these days have some kind of photography feature, so it’s hard to remember a time before Photo Modes. Some developers don’t think it’s important for players to be able to take pictures right away, so the feature is added later. One great example of this is Alan Wake 2, which now has Photo Mode thanks to a new update that is now available.

If you look at the trailer above, you can see that you can really get creative with your photos by adding cool borders, overlays, and filters. We always like photo modes, where you can move different lights around in the scene. As the video shows, Remedy really lets you use your imagination with the different colors and lighting props.

There will be an update for Elden Ring next week that sounds pretty important. The patch will come out on June 20, right before Shadow of the Erdtree goes live on June 21. “New features” and “balance adjustments” are what FromSoftware says the update will have.

Luckily, the developer went on to give more information. We went ahead and put them all together in the patch notes below:

New parts of inventory:

  • Items that were just gained will have a “!” next to them
  • There is now a new tab called “Recent Items” that lets you look at items that you just got

What’s new in Summoning Pool?

  • Now, active summoning pools will follow you to NG+
  • The newly added Map Functions Menu now lets you turn on and off individual summoning pools
  • When you use the Small Golden Effigy, it will only choose active Summoning Pools

All new hairstyles:

  • The game now has five more hairstyles to choose from. You can choose them when you make your character, with the Clouded Mirror Stand, or with Rennala’s Rebirth feature.
    FromSoftware also says that the patch will have extra features that aren’t listed here. I hope they’re a pleasant surprise!

Would you like to see any of these changes made? Are you still excited about Shadow of the Erdtree? Get ready by reading the comments below.
