Won't deny that it's an interesting looking device and game. As someone who got a Wii Fit/Balance Board recently having software that has fitness exercises (like the Wii Fit series, etc) VS having an actual "game" that uses fitness exercises for the basis of movement and attacks might be a better sell and bridge the casual/hardcore crowd better. The Ring-Con should take up a lot less space than the Balance Board and be easier to set up, that should make it easier for some people to use already. Also we finally got pulse reading usage by using IR camera, someone at Nintendo has to be happy about that, considering it's been 10 years since the Wii Vitality Sensor E3 2009 reveal and subsequent no show.
Feels like a very Wii-era Nintendo product. Then again, I guess Labo kinda does, too.
It's apparently from the same team (Nintendo EPD - Production Group No. 4 (Internal R&D)) that made Labo and 1-2 Switch. With the Joy-Con still fulfilling the "bundle of sensors" usage akin to the Labo's Toy-Con controllers.
Will the game really be about defeating this monster or the fitness and new physic we gain along the way?
Does he who challenge fit monsters eventually become the fit monster himself?

I actually find their recent moves weird. They first announced the light user-oriented Switch Lite, and then they announced a few Joy-Con games that can't be played on Switch Lite. What kind of message are they going to send? Trick uninformed users to buy both, and then realise they need to buy additional Joy-Cons? Make new Switch Lite users instantly regret buying it when they realise that Nintendo is not fully transitioning to traditional, Joy-Con-free games?
I'm not saying they shouldn't make both, but the timing of announcing these games is very weird.

According to GoNintendo, the Japanese version of Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore will be based on the Western release, meaning it will include the censored content.
I've seen elsewhere, tho, that some of the censorship may have been rolled back a bit. I guess we won't know the specifics until we're closer to release. Hopefully, they at least smooth it over a bit so it isn't as awkward (like how they actually moved a female character's belly button).

This may actually a plus for me. I played the Japanese Wii U version, which means this will have more new contents in a way.
I'm still undecided on this one. I need to see how much new stuff is in this game, but I'm currently leaning towards no. I've already beaten the Wii U version 3 times because that's what's needed to get all records, and I've raised everyone's stats to above 150 to make the secret boss a joke.

And now, NCL has apologized for not being clear that the Switch version is based on the Western Wii U version, and for mistakenly showing screenshots of the uncensored version. They will be offering refunds for those who pre-ordered on the eShop in Japan.
From the looks of it, there is only one new story added (and thus one new dungeon and one new song). Other changes include:
Extra costumes based on the new song, and a Garreg Mach student outfit for Mamori
Tiki, Maiko and Barry can join sessions, and their attacks can follow either any physical or any magical attacks, making it much easier to chain them up (as if it's not easy enough in the original game)
Sessions can be fast-forwarded (finally! This is a major waste of time in the original)
Faster loading time
Itsuki can be switched out of the active party from the 2nd playthrough onwards (so no more experience hogging)
Makes me wish this is the version I got instead (especially because of the Quick Session feature). Depending on how much faster the battles are, I may even consider getting it. If I don't have to sit through the battles, I won't mind playing ♯FE three more times. *Stares at the other major time sinkers I have or have not bought* …or maybe not.
EDIT — Yep. Quick Session makes things much better. If it's turned on, each attack will be shown for about 0.7 seconds.
If you have Nintendo Switch Online subscription (and a Switch) you can get more SNES and NES today including Star Fox 2 for the first time without having to own the SNES Classic Mini. While Crystalis was included on the SNK 40th Anniverary edition for Switch, itself and JOURNEY TO SILIUS have not been on any VC like re-release before.

nocturnal YL: I've been thinking about how would things turn out if we do another NinDB Top 25 after 5 years passed. One thing I'm sure is that the participation rate would remain low.

Shrikeswind: So, having said in my post in Dream Fighters what I've been spending my quarantine on, what about you guys? How are you hanging onto sanity?
Aug 24, 2020 23:16:48 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Also I don't know that I've ever spent as long building a Smash fighter as I did with WG, and I'm going to hit this one hard here, it was all the costume work.

Shrikeswind: I'm reminded why I don't bother with that. I had the luxury of easy-to-grab screenshots and it still took literal hours to finish that post.

Nester the Lark: Let's not talk about me and sanity.
Aug 25, 2020 10:19:20 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Very well, we shall talk of other things, like shoes and ships and sealing wax, and cabbages and kings, and why the sea is boiling hot, and whether pigs have wings.

Shrikeswind: It strikes me that perhaps I should not be mentioned in the same breath as sanity myself.

Boo Destroyer: RuneScape.... I haven't heard that name in a long, long time.

Shrikeswind: I still play. Matter of fact, I'm currently playing. It actually just came out with a new skill this past March, if you can believe it.

nocturnal YL: In a way, I'm glad I'm unrelated to those fan communities of the games I play. I just sit back and play games casually, not really caring whatever scandals or elitism or holier-than-thou attitudes going on.

Shrikeswind: I think I need to track down some horribly cursed Pokemon content now after that. You know, since that was such a heavy topic to drop in the middle of a quiet forum.
