The GameXplain of Triple Deluxe has a few cameos visible. 8:11 has the HAL logo pop up as portable cover used by Archer Cover. 14:03 has a wallpaper made of KDL1 graphics. 24:27 has the Lololo and Lalala arena for Kirby Fighters. You're call if you consider a legacy cameo like this one.

Videos of the entire game is now everywhere. You can even see the ending right now if you want. I'm sure you can find far more in-series throwbacks than this.
Cameos aside, this game's game system feels like it has borrowed a few things from the Super Smash Bros. series: - Kirby can now dodge roll, air dodge and dodge on the spot. The inputs of these are the same as Smash Bros. - Abilities get very slight changes to make them more balanced. Sword, Stone and Needle got extra properties, while Beam, Ice, Fire, Spark and Ninja lose certain moves. Spear both lost and gained powers in different parts. - The collectibles, the key holders, work like trophies. They're seen everywhere, are divided in classes or rarity, and can be bought (with Play Coins in this case).
And here are some non-Smash ones: - According to 2ch, Sword's midair spin has a sword beam. This is either from the anime, or from (I don't know if it's true) Skyward Sword. - Not a cameo, but is in-series. Kirby can't fly indefinitely in Kirby Fighters. Instead, his flight looks more like Kirby 64.
On that note, given that games do this more often than ever, I don't know if in-series cameos are still NinDB-worthy. They're now the norm rather than the exception.
Nester the Lark: Speaking of the song "Reincarnation," perhaps it might have sounded something like this if the game had gotten an English dub.

nocturnal YL: According to Nintendo's IR calendar, they're going to release their financial information up to December 2020 on 1 Feb. Switch sales (68.30 mil at Sep 2020) may very well surpass that of the 3DS (75.94 mil), but how will it compare to the GBA (81.51 mil)?
Jan 31, 2021 12:10:02 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: It's closer to the GBA sales than I thought. Switch hardware sales up to December 2020 is 79.87 mil, while I expected about 78 mil.

nocturnal YL: Also, while they stopped counting 3DS and Wii U hardware sales, software went up from 385.12 mil to 385.85 mil and 103.27 mil to 103.31 mil. Switch software sales went from 456.49 mil to 532.34 mil, surpassing that of NES and Game Boy.

nocturnal YL: So now that I have a capture device, I've been looking at my games and tried to figure out the resolution and frame rate they run at. Trials Rising is 540p30, Project DIVA Mega Mix has the UI at 720p60 and the simpler, single-singer PVs run at 540p60…?

nocturnal YL: All the Atelier games I've seen so far (Arland 1-4) run at 1080p30, which is a bit surprising as I expected a lower resolution for Lulua. Void Terrarium and Puyo Puyo Tetris 1 and 2 all run at 1080p60. PPT1 also ran at 1080p60 on Wii U, so no surprise.

nocturnal YL: ↑ In Atelier Lulua, the system UI and even some parts with 3D models (like the synthesis screen) run at full 1080p at 60 fps. That's a huge leap from the previous two games in the series. World map runs at 30 fps though, despite not being intensive.

nocturnal YL: Rune Factory 4 Special runs at 720p60. Fire Emblem Three Houses is a weird case; it looks like 900p30 to me, but because of the way the edge of the models are drawn, the graphics end up looking very ugly.

Nester the Lark: I've been doing the same thing I do every time I consider getting Smash Ultimate: playing Smash for Wii U. It turns out there are still plenty of people playing it online. Makes me curious about Splatoon 1.
Feb 20, 2021 10:08:42 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: The online also worked better than I remember. Maybe because there are fewer people...?

Nester the Lark: My skill curve in Smash Bros seems to be the opposite of other games: the more I play, the worse I get.

Nester the Lark: TIL I had not yet unlocked all the stages in Smash for Wii U. Just unlocked the last one today, six years after getting the game.
