All First Party Nintendo Games will not have a Rating on Covers in South East Asia from 2024 onwards

May 29, 2024 0 Comments

Ever since I had gotten my Nintendo Switch it has been an adventure of playing games, and collecting physical edition of games. Being in Singapore, we usually get the MSE version of the physical games, which is the same looking as the US version. There are some games which are the EU version as well, but overall we get quite a few variety. 


Prior to 2024, first party games were released with the region code MSE. The physical games have an ESRB rating on the front cover of the box, and on the back there is an “Middle East/Southeast Asia/Official Product” logo, and the same Nintendo of America barcode as the respective product sold in the states. Inside the packaging is a USA region Game Card.


But starting this year in 2024, all first party Nintendo physical games in Southeast Asia will no longer have an ESRB age rating on the box. That would mean that games from this region will be the first in the world to have clean covers for first party titles. That is… with the exception of titles such as those from the Bayonetta series that will most likely have an IMDA 18+ age rating printed on the cover. 


The new ratingless versions will retain the MSE region code, “Official Product” logo, and have a unique Nintendo Co, Ltd (Japan) barcode. Inside the packaging, the USA region Game Card is expected to be replaced by a MSE region Game Card. Although the region of the Game Card is different, there are no differences to the software itself; all first party games work the same way regardless of its Game Card region.


This brings a new opportunity for those who wish to collect clean covers, aka covers with no age rating, of first party Nintendo games, which has never been possible for titles before 2024.


For my first game of 2024, Princess Peach: Show Time!, the cover is nice and clean. The game card however is still the US version and not MSE. But a cleaner cover looks nicer, doesn’t it? ūüėÜ

Mini Review: Dicey Dungeons Nintendo Switch Game

October 23, 2023 0 Comments

Dicey Dungeons is a unique and captivating addition to the Nintendo Switch game library. Developed by Terry Cavanagh, the game combines elements of roguelike, deck-building, and strategy. As a result, you end up having thrilling and addictive experience in the most laidback form ever.

To me, one of the standout features of Dicey Dungeons is its charmingly simple yet stylish art design. The game's colorful, pixelated graphics and catchy chiptune soundtrack create a delightful and nostalgic atmosphere that's hard to resist. Together, both the visual and auditory appeal adds a layer of immersion to the gameplay.


I went and got myself a physical copy of the game from Super Rare Games, and although it was a little pricey I am totally enjoying myself!


What's it about?

At its core, Dicey Dungeons is all about strategy with a little randomness thrown in (you are only limited to the choices you are given). 

As a player, you will have to navigate a series of grid-based dungeons, battling various monsters using dice as your primary resource. The brilliance lies in the dice-rolling mechanics, where each piece of equipment you acquire is represented by a set of dice with specific abilities.  

To get started, you play as one of the show's six adorable contestants, all of whom are turned into dice for Lady Luck's show. To progress, you need to complete episodes by defeating enemies, opening chests and visiting stores while building up a deck of cards capable of defeating an end boss. 

One of the end bosses
The dungeons are presented as a series of nodes you can move between: there are shops, health-restoring apples, and enemies placed on several of them. To progress you need to fight enemies and reach the node that features the trap door to the next floor. The challenge is to optimize your dice to deal damage, heal, and overcome your adversaries, all while managing limited resources.
Example of how a dungeon and nodes looks like
Dicey Dungeons strikes a near-perfect balance between accessibility and depth. New players can grasp the basics quickly, while seasoned gamers will appreciate the strategic layers and decision-making involved in each encounter. 

As you progress, you will be able to unlock different characters. Each character has their own unique abilities and playstyles, enhancing the replayability and variety of the game so you will never get bored.
Choose carefully as there is a limited amount of space in your bag pack.
The roguelike nature of Dicey Dungeons keeps you coming back for more. Permanent upgrades and the excitement of unlocking new equipment and abilities provide a satisfying sense of progression. However, failure is frequent, and the random element of dice rolling can be unforgiving at times. This adds an addictive element, and tempts you to try one more time to  pass that episode. The rolling dice mechanics stay the same, but no two rolls are ever the same and each character uses them so uniquely that it is never the same experience each time you play.


Verdict: 4/5

While Dicey Dungeons is undoubtedly enjoyable, some players might find the difficulty spikes in later levels a bit frustrating, as the game's randomness can occasionally lead to unwinnable situations. Nevertheless, the sense of accomplishment when you finally conquer a tough floor is immensely gratifying. 

If you enjoy strategic gameplay, roguelike challenges, and quirky, retro aesthetics then Dicey Dungeons is a must-play! Its innovative mechanics, engaging strategy, and charming presentation make it a standout addition to the your game library. Despite occasional frustrations, the overall experience is highly rewarding, making Dicey Dungeons a game you'll want to keep rolling the dice in, time and time again.

What's even better is that there is a sale on the Nintendo eShop and the game is going for USD$1.99 (until 2 November 2023!).

If you prefer to have a physical copy, then get yours at Super Rare Games!

Pokémon Scarlet & Violet DLC Trailer Snippets: Release date, Past-Gen Starters & Much Much More

August 13, 2023 0 Comments
Who's excited for the DLC Updates for Pok√©mon Scarlet & Violet
The first half of The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero is set to debut on 13 September 2023!

Here are some of the highlights:

1) Return of Past-Gen Starters and New Moves

In addition to the return of past-generation starters, here's a bit else about what's featured (via Serebii.net):
  • Psycic Noise is a new move which prevents the target healing.
  • The move Upper Hand strikes before a target's priority move
  • Raging Bolt is Electric/Dragon-type. It has the move Thunderclap that is a priority move
  • Iron Crown is Steel/Psychic-type. It has the move Tachyon Cutter which hits twice in a row
  • A new element of Terastallisation featuring all 18 types has also been teased


2) More Fashion Options 

The Teal Mask and The Indigo Disk’s latest trailer provides a little more detail about Kitakami, the new locale Pok√©mon Scarlet and Violet players will get to travel to as they participate in the town’s traditional Festival of Masks

3) New Pokémon and Characters

Besides the addition of a variety of new hairstyles and outfits that were not available in the games previously, the DLC features a storyline revolving around some new Pok√©mon - OkidogiMunkidori, and Fezandipiti - known as a the legendary trio “The Loyal Three” . And with all good there is Ogerpon, the “evil ogre” they protect Kitakami from.  

Kitakami is home to a variety of wild Pok√©mon from older generations that can’t be found in Paldea, aong with entirely new creatures like Dipplin, a new Applin evolution that resembles a candy apple while (presumably) still being a dragon type.

There's also introduction to new new characters like photographer Perrin. Perrin's photo-focused side quests will send players out into Kitakami’s wilderness to snap shots of wild Pok√©mon. With a new feature, Roto-stick, players will be able to take selfies from wider angles with the game’s built-in cameraphones.

Pre-ordering Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope on Nintendo Switch

October 10, 2022 0 Comments

Do note that this post may contain product affiliate links. If you purchase something through a link on this blog post. we may receive a commission, which goes into the upkeep of this blog.


With just about 10 days to it's release,  Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope will make it's way on the Nintendo Switch on 20 October 2022!

In the strategy adventure Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope, Mario and his friends team up with the Rabbids once again to restore order to the galaxy! Explore planets filled with quirky residents, and even quirkier secrets, while you stop a mysterious evil from plunging the universe into chaos.


I went into it not really knowing what to expect but Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle is a hidden gem with full of surprises. It’s a turn-based tactics gameplay where you figure out the tactical puzzles of chaining together as many stringed attacks in the least amount of moves possible. It’s oddly satisfying seeing the enemies getting beaten up Mario and Rabbid style. 


[Mario Rabbids: Kingdom Battle Gold Edition + Donkey Kong Adventure DLC Review]


So now with it's sequel out, I can't wait to get my hands on another fantastic helping of strategy-focused goodness, Mario + Rabbid style of course. Besides the Standard Edition, there are are some special Gold and Cosmic Editions available!


I found the Cosmic Edition on Qoo10 for SGD$59.90, and the Gold Edition was SGS$110.90. What a steal!


It's sad that we don't have the steel case, but if you order from the Nintendo Store UK it comes with with a free SteelBook case.


The Gold Edition includes the base game, a Season Pass (which contains upcoming DLC packs, including additional story content featuring a new character, quests, and battles), and the Galactic Prestige Collection (three exclusive weapon skins, unlockable right away). 


The Cosmic Edition just does not have the Season Pass for the DLCs, which is pretty reasonable for that price. It comes with  the base game, and the Galactic Prestige Collection mentioned above.  I've been buying a tad too much games, so this was the only one which was more 'friendly' on my wallet, so this is the version which I got. I could always get the DLCs at a later stage if I am interested in it.


Now all I have to do is wait for the game, and find time time to play!

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Introduces Wiglett, the Long Eel Cousin of Diglett

September 30, 2022 0 Comments
The Paldean region of Pok√©mon Scarlet and Violet has added another unique creature to its ranks...
... Meet the Wiglett

Digletts are Ground Type Pok√©mon basically whack-a-moles with cute noses, and they were made even more memorable by their cries of “Diglett Dig” in the cartoon. It's cousin the Wiglett,  resembles a garden eel, a subset of the eel species that live underground and poke their heads out from under water. It debuted during a livestream in Japan, which verified that while it bears a striking resemblance to Diglett, it is different enough to be classified as a unique species and not a Paldean variant.


Wiglett is a long worm-like creature that rises from the ground. But unlike the Diglett it is not a Ground Type but Water Type.  It also has a pair of eyes and a nose similar to Diglett, one of the original 151 Pok√©mon that has already been shown in trailers for the new game.

The Wiglett becomes the 17th new Pok√©mon revealed for Pok√©mon Scarlet and Violet, including the Paldean variant of Pok√©mon Wooper from the second generation. New species introduced for the new game include LeChonk, the legendary Koraidon and Miraidon, and the newcomers Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly.



Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is the ninth main installment in the Pokémon franchise, which will introduce players to the new region of Paldea when it launches on 18 November 2022 exclusively on Nintendo Switch.


 Pre-order @ Amazon - SGD62


 Pre-order @ Qoo10 - SGD$60

Kirbys Dream Buffet release date window: Gameplay, trailer, pre-order and latest news

July 12, 2022 0 Comments



Have you seen the adorable trailer for  Kirby's Dream Buffet yet? If you haven't, check out this cute little sneak peak below! 




The trailer shows a collection of colorful and fun stages which are all themed around food. In addition, Kirby can also be seen transforming into other baked goods as well, such as a cupcake and a pink chocolate bar! It seems like the winner will be rewarded with a medal of sorts for being the biggest Kirby by the end of the round.


Kirby’s Dream Buffet is a four-player multiplayer game, which finds a group of adorable Kirbys rolling through a collection of food-themed stages consisting of four rounds. Players will need to collect strawberries in order to grow bigger and prepare for the final battle of each stage. There are multiple levels all with different challenges for the four Kirby players to complete, including races and puzzles. A winner is announced after each challenge.


In the words of Nintendo in the announcement of the game, the basic story setup for Kirby's Dream Buffet will feature "a gang of Kirbys rolling through a smorgasbord of food-themed stages in four rounds of frantic multiplayer fun."


The bigger a player's Kirby grows, the better chance they will have to be able to knock other players off the stage and use familiar Copy Abilities, or Copy Food Abilities as they are called in Kirby’s Dream Buffet. Players will use these Copy Food Abilities to beat the competition and win.


Kirby’s Dream Buffet offers accessible gameplay for players of all skill levels, but also presents a healthy challenge for those looking to satiate their craving for friendly competition,” Nintendo explains.


Nintendo has promised that Kirby's Dream Buffet release date will fall in Summer 2022!


The newest Kirby game is a new exclusive game for the Nintendo Switch. So it will only be available via the Nintendo eShop, meaning there won’t be physical copies at retail stores or online. ūüėě The game can’t be pre-ordered at the moment, and will only be available digitally.


Are you excited about this release and would you wish for a physical release as well? Let us know in the comments below~!

Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl: Get your Arceus and Darkrai

April 03, 2022 0 Comments

Pokemon.com

How to get Arceus in Pokemon BDSP


To find Arceus, you'll need to have a Pokémon Legends: Arceus save file on your Nintendo Switch system with all the main missions completed, and ensure your game is updated to Version 1.3.0. In addition to Arceus and Darkrai, the update introduced the Global Wonder Station, a facility in Jubilife City where you can engage in Wonder Trades with players around the world (finally!).

You'll also need to enter the Hall of Fame and obtain the National Pokédex in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond or Pokémon Shining Pearl

Once all the conditions have been met, return to your room in Pok√©mon Brilliant Diamond or Pok√©mon Shining Pearl, where you can get the Azure Flute item. 

With the Azure Flute, go to the Spear Pillar at the top of Mount Coronet, and Arceus will reveal itself. Be ready to battle this powerful Pokémon!

HINT: Arceus will be Level 80 and since it's a normal-type Pokémon, it's weak to fighting-type attacks. Be careful though - you don't want Arceus to faint!


How to get Darkrai mystery gift in Pokemon BDSP


To encounter Darkrai, you'll need to have the Member Card, which will be distributed via Mystery Gift between April 1 and April 30. Once you've obtained the Member Card, travel to Newmoon Island, where you'll get a chance to capture Darkrai.

With the Member Card in hand, you'll first need to enter the Hall of Fame and obtain the National Pokedex in Pok√©mon Brilliant Diamond or Pok√©mon Shining Pear before you can encounter Darkrai. You will also need to have traveled to Fullmoon Island and encountered Cresselia.

The most important thing is to collect the Member card this month and when you meet the requirements later on (after April) you can meet and catch Darkrai anytime later.


Have you caught them all?

Nintendo Switch News: Update 14.0.0

If you have a lot of games on your Nintendo Switch and wanted a way to organize them, you can do it with the latest 14.0.0 version update. This updates comes with a “group” function which allows players to create up to 100 folders or groups. 

Each of these folders, which are called Groups, can hold up to 200 games. Individual games can also be simultaneously accommodated in several groups. The only thing you can't do? Having groups within a group. So if you wanted to create sub groups in a group, sorry but maybe next time. 


The new feature can be found on your Nintendo Switch dashboard by selecting “All Software”. 

Press the L button to view the titles in groups.

  1. If no folders have been created yet, a pop-up window will appear allowing you to create a new group. 
  2. All the games that should be in the folder have to be selected. 
  3. The selected titles can be sorted in the group as you wish. 
  4. Give the new folder a name. 

Note: New groups cannot be displayed on the Nintendo Switch home screen. They are only displayed as soon as you are in the new group menu.


Besides the folder addition, volume setting for Bluetooth devices has also been improved and increased. The volume can now be adjusted either via the Nintendo Switch as usual, or via the volume control on your audio device which has to support AVRCP profiles.

The update should happen automatically, but id it doesn't happen you can always start it manually via the system settings.
