Quote from: Press Release
Fire Emblem Warriors for Nintendo Switch and New Nintendo 3DS Launches on Oct. 20
Day-One Update and DLC Help to Expand the Adventure


REDMOND, Wash., Oct. 19, 2017 – When the Fire Emblem Warriors game launches Oct. 20 for the Nintendo Switch and New Nintendo 3DS family of systems, it will do so with a wealth of content and action-packed gameplay. The new game offers a twist on the acclaimed Fire Emblem series by uniting fan-favorite characters from Fire Emblem history to participate in over-the-top battles focused on real-time, tactical action rather than turn-based strategy.
 
Fire Emblem Warriors offers action-filled combat through an epic campaign starring more than 20 playable warriors, including two new characters, Lianna and Rowan, battling alongside beloved heroes like Marth, Lyn, Xander, Corrin and Chrom. Fans who want to get even more out of the game can download the free DLC Japanese voice pack and free software update on launch day, as well as purchase upcoming DLC.
 
“Whether you are a super fan of the Fire Emblem franchise, new to the series or played and loved the previously released Hyrule Warriors game, Fire Emblem Warriors offers a fantastic adventure filled with great gameplay,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “The action-filled game is another solid addition to the Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS lineups.”
 
At midnight ET on Oct. 20, both the free DLC Japanese voice pack and a free software update will go live. The DLC voice pack adds the ability to experience the game with Japanese voice audio and English subtitles. The free software update adds battle results to the game’s History mode and a new feature for sorting in-game weapons.
 
Starting in December, a series of three paid DLC packs will also release for the game. The first DLC pack launches in December, the second in February and the third in March, with each pack adding three new playable characters, three new History scenarios, new costumes, new weapons and new support conversations inspired by Fire Emblem Fates, Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and Fire Emblem Awakening, respectively. Each DLC pack will cost $8.99, but a Season Pass can be purchased starting on Oct. 20 for $19.99. The Season Pass includes all three DLC packs, which become available as they release, as well as a bonus bridal costume for Lucina that can only be obtained by purchasing the Season Pass.
 
Fire Emblem Warriors launches for Nintendo Switch on Oct. 20 at a suggested retail price of $59.99. A special edition will launch exclusively for the Nintendo Switch system on the same day at a suggested retail price of $79.99. The special edition includes the game, a premium character-card set with a slip case, a double-sided poster and a three-CD music set. The game also will launch on Oct. 20 for New Nintendo 3DS, New Nintendo 3DS XL and New Nintendo 2DS XL systems at a suggested retail price of $39.99. (This version of the game is only playable in 2D.)
 
Also launching on Oct. 20 are two new amiibo figures based on popular characters Tiki and Chrom from the Fire Emblem series. (Each figure is sold separately at a suggested retail price of $12.99.) These, along with other compatible Fire Emblem themed amiibo figures, including Marth, Ike, Robin and Lucina, grant players weapons or in-game materials when tapped. All other available amiibo figures are compatible as well. Up to five different compatible amiibo figures can each be tapped once per day.

Attention Inklings! You Can Now Reel in Splatoon 2 for Nintendo Switch
A Fresh Franchise Gets Even Fresher


REDMOND, Wash., July 21, 2017 – Greetings! We here at the Squid Research Lab have some fantastic news. According to the position of the sun and the level of the tides (and also the calendars on our desks), it looks like it’s time for the Splatoon 2 game to launch for the Nintendo Switch system. What an exciting day! Even more exciting, the new SplatNet 2 mobile service, which is a part of the Nintendo Switch Online app* for mobile devices, is also launching. SplatNet 2 lets you track things like stage schedules, gear and stats. This is great since many Squid Research Lab employees are taking their summer vacations soon and want to be able to check in on Splatoon 2 info at all times.
 
Recently, we aired a special Nintendo Direct presentation that was as fresh as it was informative. Tons of details about the modes, weapons and styles of Splatoon 2 were covered, so please watch it here to get a refresher before diving into the game. By watching the video, you’ll also be introduced to two new characters: Pearl and Marina. Pearl and Marina are the new hosts of Inkopolis News and the recurring Splatfest competitions. A special Splatfest for Splatoon 2 just occurred on July 15 and pit ice cream against cake as the better dessert. Team Ice Cream emerged victorious, which caused quite the stir at the Squid Research Lab, as many of us prefer pie. The first Splatfest competition after launch will occur the first weekend in August and asks your condiment of choice: mayonnaise or ketchup? (Specific timing will be announced in the future.) New Splatfest competitions, as well as free updates to the game like new stages, weapons and gear, will be coming to Splatoon 2 on a regular basis.
 
Whether you are inking your way through the many online** and local*** multiplayer modes in the game or the fun single-player adventure, the power of Nintendo Switch lets you play Splatoon 2 anywhere! So please feel free to engage in battles at the beach, on the docks or in a submarine! (Or, you know, anywhere non-aquatic-related.) The new Salmon Run mode (which is a favorite among our researchers) can be played at any time locally and is also available to play online at designated times, just like Splatfest! In fact, rumor has it that the Salmonids plan to attack during the first three days after launch (July 21-23). If you want to take a part-time job with Grizzco Industries to help fend off these menacing migrators, this would be a great time to do it!

In addition to the game and SplatNet 2, three new Splatoon series amiibo figures are also launching today. Sadly, these new figures aren’t based on anyone that works here in the Lab, but they are new models for the Inkling Girl, Inkling Boy and Inkling Squid … and that’s pretty fresh. By tapping any Splatoon series amiibo figure you can save control settings, gear and weapon loadouts, as well as any clever nicknames. You can have a different set saved to each amiibo for quick access – perhaps one might be your Splat Dualies set for use in Turf War and another is your Goo Tuber set for use in Ranked Battle. It’s up to you!
 
Two years have passed since the original Splatoon came out (what a proud day!) and two years have also passed in the game. This means that many of those styles and weapons you remember from the first game have evolved into things even more stylish and current. We can’t wait to see what outfits and hairstyles your Inkling will be sporting in this new game.
 
Splatoon 2 is now available in stores and in Nintendo eShop at a suggested retail price of $59.99. The new Splatoon series amiibo are available at a suggested retail price of $12.99 each. (Sorry, but rare jellyfish or seashells are not accepted as payment.)
