All the buttons sounds good, but elaborate button pressing might be too much for me. I'm a man of simple tastes.

It’s also worth noting that the four LEDs on it are green :lol:

Sadly they mean level 256 of Pac-Man.

This article is utter lies and villany, right?

 

https://www.imore.com/how-transfer-internal-save-data-micro-sd-card-nintendo-switch

 

First result on Google for "backup switch saves to sd card". When really the first result should be something saying "no, you can't do it because Nintendo want you to pay for their online service". They seem to have misinterpreted the patch notes, from when an option to transfer game data (i.e. DLC, patches and the like) between internal and external memory was added. The UI literally says "save data can't be moved" when you try and their screenshots show this.

ERA thinks we’re getting a new F-Zero game.

 

There’s an inactive, official(?)* Twitter account linked to the 3D Mario All-Stars collection heavily rumoured already, and they found a similar one registered in March for F-Zero from the same source. Currently both have placeholder usernames ‘aaaaaa’. Now speculating this is why Falcon was in Min Min’s Smash reveal.

 

*ERA is never wrong!**

**See: Star Fox GP.

 

If Nintendo are dropping 64, Sunshine & Galaxy remasters, plus F-Zero and BotW2, that would be quite the 2020 for Switch.

That’s Google’s fault, not imore’s. They don’t mention anything about transferring save data.

It says game data, not save data. In the screenshots you can see they're moving games and patches from the size of the files.

I tweeted at them and they seem to have corrected it. You can see the URL slug still refers to "save" data but everything else has been changed. The incorrect information can be seen in Google's cache still.

It would. Although we're fast running out of 2020 if all those games are due for release and are still unannounced.

Two new firstparty games and a collection of retro ports wouldn’t exactly be an unrealistically bumper year.

They are doing a pretty quick announcement -> release thing right now though - when did we first hear about Paper Mario, that was only 2 months ago right? So they could announce now (July) for release in September/October/November/December still without it being particularly unusual or unrealistic.

Even ignoring the impact of Covid, I feel like the pattern for the last couple of years has been a lighter first half of the year and a big finish. Likewise, they haven't been announcing things very far ahead since 2017. I made a thread in 2018 questioning the change in approach because I'd really appreciated knowing the road map in the launch year, but they've largely stuck with that strategy.

Era is also convinced the year’s first full Direct is happening on the 20th.

 

And considering they’re on page 196 of OT 10 and they’ve been speculating about one since January, I’m happy to go along with the hype.

Why is The Immortal SO DARK?!?  I can barely see it on the handheld screen in normal light.  Telly not much better.

If true, this is bound to be the event where the 35th anniversary Marios are announced. Can't wait to see the rumoured 64 remake!

My wife is really enjoying Dragon Quest XI at the moment - what are the other highly recommended turn-based JRPGs on the system?

 

We already have Fire Emblem.

Not sure if this is the best place to ask - please let me know if I should move my questions.

 

I want to buy ESP Ra.De. Psi digitally as I prefer not having to change carts. I'm not sure what the best way to get it is.

 

I've already got my Switch set up with a Japanese account ready to go. My problem is that the Japanese eShop won't accept my credit cards, Revolut or UK paypal. The only option I can think if is to buy a Japanese eShop card. But I haven't found anywhere that sells them without a big markup. So I guess my questions are:

 

(1) Is there a way to buy from the Japanese eShop with a UK paypal/credit card/Revolut account?

(2) what's a good place to buy Japanese eShop credit with reasonable markeup?

 

Any help / advice is appreciated.

Xenoblade Chronicles 1 & 2, though they’re not really turn based. Tbh DQXI is so huge she won’t need anything for a while, and nothing else on any system comes close to its greatness.

Disgaea is probably my favourite (1, then 4, then 5). There's also The Banner Saga (I loved this, but it's very bleak), Octopath Traveller and a load of earlier Final Fantasy games. 

 

Edit: The Banner Saga isn't a JRPG. Still great, though.

I really really enjoyed I Am Setsuna. Nailed the SNES aesthetic really well. You can probably find it cheap as well.

Tokyo Mirage Sessions FE. Persona Light, and suitably ludicrous premise.

Whenever I need Japanese eshop credit I just buy a digital card from PlayAsia. Probably not the cheapest but it just works fine and they're definitely a legit company.

I think this page from Nintendolife covers the details - they are pushing Play Asia as a place to buy eShop credit and a quick currency conversion shows an acceptable markup (5000円 =  $45.80).

 

I don’t remember where I bought credit back when I got Virtua Racing from the Japanese eShop, I don’t think it was Play Asia, but they’re legit.

I think Ni No Kuni is turn based. 
 

Also FF7 8 and 9 are all on the eshop.
