storyofseasons_triooftownsplushcapybara_thumbI know I’m eagerly awaiting the launch of Story of Season’s (Formerly known as Harvest Moon) latest installment, Trio of Towns. I grew up with the games and have voraciously devoured each installment, learning the preferences of each member of my town and growing both my farming empire and the relationships with townsfolk. The franchise usually includes some sort of cute plush with every preorder, and there’s still time to reserve a copy of Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns before its launch on Tuesday to receive an exclusive Capybara plush, pictured to the left.

A new trailer released yesterday features Capy-san, the in-game version of the Capybara plushie, and he has exciting news! In addition to reminding viewers about the preorder bonus, Capy-san gives us a sneak peak of unique costumes too:

I’m so excited that STORY OF SEASONS: Trio of Towns is launching next week! I must admit I’m also looking forward to getting my paws on the “plushie” version of me as well. I heard it’s just as adorable as I am. Speaking of adorable, today’s video features costumes borrowed from my friends Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach and Toad from Super Mario Bros. These outfits let you cosplay as your favorite character AND will give you awesome abilities in the game!”

A press statement gave more details on what exactly we can expect from these cool crossover costumes:

“In a rush? Mario’s signature red and blue uniform gives your running speed a boost. Reeling in nothing but boots? Turn your fishing luck around with Luigi’s outfit and hat that’ll make others green with envy. Feel like your pal is more of a stranger than a friend? Princess Peach’s regal dress and shiny tiara will give you some of the heroine’s limitless charm, helping you make friends with residents of the trio of towns faster. Farming is exhausting, isn’t it? Like the tireless character himself, Toad’s outfit and hat will recharge your stamina automatically.”

The fact that the costumes from the Mario crossover also give unique in-game abilities is really neat too. Make sure to preorder Story of Seasons if you want your own Capy-san, and check back with Geekreply for the latest news on everything related to the franchise.

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, the famous shmup series, will come back as a twin-stick shooter on PS5, PS4, and PC

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.
