I guess the limited time offer has to do with the game being an anniversary celebration. A lot of the physical games they released in the past were limited too; they just didn't explicitly state so. This is unusual for a download-only game not bound by license, though.
I think what might happen is that about a year from now (or sometime in 2022) it will be brought back and simply added to the Switch Online NES app in North America and Europe. I think they were just giving people a chance to own a copy before that.
That's kind of what happened with Star Fox 2. Initially, it was only available on the SNES Mini/Classic, but a year later, it was added to the Switch Online SNES app.
Maybe, but the localised version of Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light feels very different from a typical NES game. It does things not possible on an actual NES. They'll need to modify the host program rather than just adding a modified ROM to the library, which makes it a bit different from Star Fox 2. But speaking of that, I was surprised to see them bother with SuperFX emulation in the first place.
Remember how Labo kits 1-3 having the 2D Labo Toy-Con Garage programming mode? Remember how the Virtual Reality Labo kit had the much better 3D object Toy-Con Garage programming mode?
Now it's back with new colorful cartoony interface and no cardboard required.
Was going to put this in the eShop thread but it's actually getting a physical release (download version is 10.5 GB). There will also be mouse support in docked mode. Creations can be shared online via codes (something Labo's Garage couldn't do).
I'm happy to see Labo's Garage mode to get a new lease on life, while the little cartoony nodes icons (look at that happy little control stick icon!) remind me of the cartoony music bugs on the cover of Toshio Iwai's Sound Fantasy and SimTunes.

nocturnal YL: This kind of reminds me of modern 3D printing, where the software needs to formulate the steps for replicating the object rather than just going in a simple 2D matrix manner as in inkjet printing. Nice video.

Evie the Mother Hen ❤✿: From the looks of it we could create a Pokémon Family ROM hack, FE Family, etc.; but if the number of stiching points was changed from the original design you'd need to fix that with more hacking.

Nester the Lark: I'm working on something for the forum. Hopefully I'll have it finished this week.

nocturnal YL: I settled on the games I'll showcase for my NinDB Top 25. I've tried a lot of games, but a list of favourites is going to be imbalanced regardless. There are absolutely no NES, N64, DS and original Game Boy games in my list.
Apr 26, 2021 14:41:07 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Given that I just said what my favourite games are not long ago, my list will be unsurprising. Now, should I attempt to rank them? What aspects should I highlight to make them more interesting? Hmm…

Nester the Lark: Remember the "Everybody Votes" channel on the original Wii? There was a section where you could submit your own suggestion for a poll. I seem to recall two of my suggestions being used, but I only remember what one of them was.

Nester the Lark: Here's an archive of results from the Everybody Votes channel. I found my poll question in the US English section for September 1, 2009.

nocturnal YL: Do you consider yourself to be more of a ... Romantic: 39.1% Realist: 60.9% This one, right? So… what's your own vote to that question? (I'd have picked realist.)
May 6, 2021 9:58:40 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: ^ At the time, I think I picked romantic. Not sure what I'd pick today. I feel like I'm somewhere in between.

Nester the Lark: Lately, the forum feels more like "Nester & YL's clubhouse."

nocturnal YL: Looking at the other members' last online date, I can safely say that this place is pretty much inactive by now.

Nester the Lark: Looking at an old post I wrote two years ago, I noticed I misspelled "threw" as "through," and now I'm angry at myself.

nocturnal YL: …Why am I still seeking gaming news when I have 7 games yet to complete and at least 2 more that I plan to get? (EDIT — Oh right, Ys IX has a confirmed release date. That makes at least 3 games I'll get later.)

nocturnal YL: My current plan is to play Atelier Firis DX now, which online guides suggest is long. Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX will likewise be long (longer than the original too, due to DLC, DX additions and I'll make the best items). I'll maybe play Ys Origin after.
Jun 14, 2021 10:28:43 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Not sure about what I'll play after. Another Atelier game will probably be out by then, either completing the Secret series or giving us Arland 5. Either way, I'll probably play those before going elsewhere. Dusk will have to wait for quite a bit…
