Mina, now a battle-worn warrior, travels the lands plagued by an intense darkness growing within her. Due to the never-ending pain brought on by this darkness, she is unable to wield her bow with the same ferocity as in the past. A new blade has been affixed to her bow, and she has perfected a unique new fighting style that combines both close range and long-range attacks. Though the darkness slowly consumes her aching heart, her arrows, propelled by the sheer will to survive, never miss their target even on the blackest of nights.
Earth Seeker hit the Wii all the way back in 2011 by Kadokawa Games, and unfortunately never saw a localization. While there was interest from companies like XSEED, plans never went through, and the game was left to languish in Japan. Now, all the way in 2020, the game is getting a second lease on life thanks to the fan translation efforts of Brand Newman and their team.
Earth Seeker, produced by Enterbrain and developed by Crafts & Meister, takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where humankind has created several thousand spaceship in order to escape impending doom from a black hole. Unfortunately, all life aboard the ships ends up getting wiped out, but the spaceship’s computer continues to search for an inhabitable planet. The ship eventually crash lands on a random planet, scattering Earth wreckage across the land. The ship's AI activates the Earth Reclamation Program, but due to a malfunction, the planet's inhabitants start to merge with the Earth wreckage into strand creatures/monsters.
Sounds like a pretty cool game, doesn't it? You can check out some of the English fan translation in the video below.
One of the biggest sticking points coming out of Nintendo's Animal Crossing: New Horizons Direct was the mention of save data recovery. The Direct featured a blurb that said "Switch Online members can only have save data recovered one time due to loss or damage of system." That riled up a ton of people, many of which didn't want to worry about potentially losing their game data if more than one unfortunate circumstance hit them.
Well, while we're not sure of the reason, Nintendo has now changed that segment of the Direct. If you go watch the current upload of the Direct on Nintendo's YouTube channel, you can see the language in that section has changed. It now says, "More details on save data recovery functionality will be shared at a future date." Does this mean Nintendo is reconsidering their stance, or are they just trying to hush the naysayers for the time being?

When we see Sirfetch’d in Pokemon Sword and Shield, he's holding his leek in two different hands. One part of the leek is used as a sword, while the other is its shield. Now we have a new piece of art from Pokemon Co. showing off what the leek looks like when Sirfetch’d isn't battling. Nice to see the guy taking a break for once!
