Ep 012 - Nintendo GOTY Part One

Its a massive week, with so much to cover. Nis and the switch, Dragon Quest 11 Deets and enough switch rumors to fill a 32GB hard drive. We also squeeze 4 of our 8 GOTY categories. Including Box art, NPC, Letdown and Surprise. Next week will be the GOTY. Last of all, some mario sunshine trivia.



NIS are in “proper development” of an un-announced title for the switch.

Details on Dragon Quest 11

The protagonist A young man from the village of Ishi. On the day of his 16th birthday, he learns that he is the reincarnation of the “hero” that once saved the world. He carries of the burden of a major mission as well, and leaves his hometown in order to confront his fate.

Emma A childhood friend of the protagonist who was born on the same day. They both underwent their coming-of-age ceremony together on the day of their 16th birthday.

Camus A blue-haired thief who the protagonist meets on his journey. Although somewhat rude, he has a strong sense of duty and a warm heart. He’s reliable and experienced in the ways of the world and supports the protagonist on his journey.

Dragon Quest XI is set in Lotozetasia. A sacred tree called “The Great Tree of Life” is said to the source of all life in this world.

PlayStation 4 Version On PlayStation 4, flowers, every tree, flowing waterfalls, and monsters are vividly expressed in vast and beautiful fields. The lifestyles of people in the towns are also depicted at their highest.

3DS Version On 3DS, you’ll see “3D Mode” on the top screen and “2D mode” on the bottom screen simultaneously at the start of your adventure. As you progress, you’ll be able to choose the appearance you’d like to continue playing with. By going to a specific place, you’ll be able to switch between 3D and 2D modes.

(even the battles are old school style of graphics)
