FiNC HOME FiT - Introduction trailer

FiNC HOME FiT is an upcoming Nintendo Switch title that is being developed by the same team behind Fitness Boxing. The game is also being supervised by FiNC, the most popular healthcare app in Japan. The game is a fitness game where the player is able to exercise with four different trainers, and the trailer above is meant to serve as an introductory video for those interested in trying out the game. Everything is in Japanese for now, but if the game is successful enough, there's a potential chance that it may be released in the west.

Monster Hunter Rise's Kamura Village and Shrine Ruins detailed

A-hunting we will go

The official Japanese site for Monster Hunter Rise has been updated with new information and screenshots. This content gives us a look at the player hub and Shrine Ruins. The player hub is called Kamura Village, and you can read a synopsis for the location below.

The Story of Kamura Village

After 50 years, the calamity returns!

This village, known for its Tatara Steel, is where hunters make their living. The Rampage, a calamity that ravaged the village 50 years ago, is about to occur again, so the inhabitants are in turmoil. The hero has to become the best hunter there is and overcome this calamity with the help of all the villagers.

As for the Shrine Ruins, they're described as a “place where people once prayed for protection” but “the shrine has fallen into decay and is now haunted by the roars of monsters.” In the debut trailer, you can spot Magnamalo running around this location.

New inside info casts doubt on the Mass Effect Trilogy coming to Switch

This rumor is my least favorite on the Citadel

For months now, we've been hearing rumors about a Mass Effect Trilogy in the works. EA is yet to confirm that release, but we're hearing that a reveal is coming very soon. Unfortunately, the other half of the rumor that says the package is coming to Switch may not be correct.

According to industry inside Jeff Grubb, the Mass Effect Trilogy is real, but it's not coming to Switch. At least not in 2020, that is.

“EA has multiple games coming to Nintendo Switch and Mass Effect is definitely not one of them. Not yet, anyhow. If that happens, it won’t happen in that one-year window that they talked about in their last shareholder meeting.”

In other words, there's still a chance the collection could come to Switch, but it's not going to happen this year. That's something we've seen with countless other multiplatform games, so it wouldn't be a surprise. Switch owners are used to waiting a few extra months to get their version of a game. Let's hope that's the case with the Mass Effect Trilogy, rather than the package not coming to Switch at all.

Standard physical releases for Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition and Ori and the Will of the Wisps coming this year

Something to look forward to

If you want to get physical versions of Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition and Ori and the Will of the Wisps, the only way to do so right now is in a Collector's Edition bundle that's priced at $150. If that's a bit too pricey for you, or you just want one of those two games, you'll be in luck later this year.

The official Ori Twitter account confirmed that standard physical releases for both Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition and Ori and the Will of the Wisps are on the way. They'll be out later this year, but no specific timing was given. We also don't know which retailers will be stocking these titles, so we'll just have to hang tight.

Playism announces Action Game Maker MV, Idol Manager, and Knights & Bikes for Switch in Japan

Three more headed to Japan

We covered Playism's event last night, which featured a slew of new titles on the way to Switch. Turns out Playism has a handful of Switch titles that they confirmed exclusively for Japan as well, and we've got the details.

First up is the above Action Game Maker MV, which is the the equivalent of RPG Game Maker MV, but for action games. This title will launch sometime before the year ends in Japan.

Next up is Idol Manager, which will also see release sometime before the year ends. Check out a Japanese trailer for the game above.

Finally, Playism also confirmed that they're handling the localization of Knights & Bikes in Japan. The team didn't mention a release date for this one, but they did share the debut Japanese trailer, which you can see above.

Fight Crab getting DEEEER Simulator DLC

Oh deer!

As if Fight Crab wasn't weird enough already, a new round of collaborative DLC is about to make things even stranger.

A collaboration between Fight Crab and DEEEER Simulator has been announced, which will see the titular Deer added to the game. You'll be able to use the Deer in campaign mode and in standard battles, which you can look forward to via an in-game update sometime in October. It does seem that this will be paid DLC, but that's not 100% certain.
