The Alliance Alive HD Remastered gets a batch of Guilds, Guild Girls, and Telegraph screens

Guilds, guilds, guilds!

The official Japanese website for The Alliance Alive HD Remastered has been updated with a new batch of screens. These screens pertain to Guilds, Guild Girls, and the Telegraph network. You can check out all the new screens here, and get a refresher on these aspects of gameplay below.


There are Human organizations called “Guilds” spread all over the world. There are five types of guilds. Each type of guild has its own specialties. You’ll be able to use the services of each guild as you progress through the story. Guilds can even help you in battle with support attacks if you fight an enemy near a guild.

Recon Guild
Guild Service: Monster Suppression – Lowers the amount of monsters on the map.
Support Effect: At the start of each turn, the “Sabotage” support effect Stuns all enemies.

Blacksmith Guild
Guild Service: Crafting Weapons – Crafts weapons and armors to increase the equipment you can use.
Support Effect: At the start of each turn, the “Blacksmith Guild Cannon” support effect shoots stone bullets at all enemies.

Library Guild
Guild Service: Record Keeping and Research – Records information about items and equipment, and analyzes Arts and Spells to increase their power.
Support Effect: At the start of each turn, the “Real-time Analysis” support effect decreases the defense of all enemies.

Signimancy Guild
Guild Service: Developing Sigils – Develops Sigils to increase Sigils you can use.
Support Effect: At the start of each turn, the “Signimancy Guild Barrier” support effect increases your defense against physical attacks and spells.

Tactics Guild
Guild Service: Developing Formations – Develop Formations to increase the Formations you can use.
Support Effect: At the start of each turn, the “Optimal Layout Adjustment” support effect increases the effects of Positions for all allies.

Guild Girls

Five sisters that each work for the different guilds. They support the protagonists on their journey.


As you progress through the story, you’ll be able to build Guild Towers. By building Guild Towers all over the world, you can establish a Telegraph (information network) that crosses past the Dark Current, connecting the divided world.

Nintendo shares more details on what's new in Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore

Not just a straight port

Looking for new info on Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore? Nintendo has opened a page that details some of the changes and added content for the game. You can check out all the details below, and check out more screens here.

Fighting Alongside Mirages

Fights are done with Mirages like Chrom by your side, and they are essential weapons to defeating your enemies. By attacking enemy weaknesses, Sessions are started where your other party members will follow up with attacks. Apart from elemental attacks, there is also the Fire Emblem series’ weapon triangle, and as such it’s a must to keep track of enemy weaknesses.

For example, in the above screenshots Kiria starts off with an ice element attack, which is followed by Itsuki’s ice-element Session skill, then followed up by Touma’s sword-type skill.

Idol Life

Even with an invasion of Mirages, the other side to Tokyo Mirage Sessions is watching our crew try to fulfill their entertainment industry dreams, including singing, live concerts, appearing in dramas and performances, in order to reach the top.

A New Song, New Outfits, New Story

The Nintendo Switch version is adding in new content, such as a new song, new outfits, as well as more story content, including a new dungeon. Additionally, Maiko, Barry, and Tiki will also participate in battles, helping extend Sessions to even greater heights.

We see Mamori, one of the playable characters, wearing a new costume based on the Garreg Mach Officer’s Academy uniform from Fire Emblem: Three Houses.

Atlus permanently reduces the price of 8 3DS titles on the Japanese eShop

Cashing in

Atlus sees the writing on the wall with the 3DS. It's been there for quite some time, but Atlus is finally cashing in on it. Over in Japan, 8 different Atlus 3DS titles have had their prices permanently cut. The lineup includes Etrian Odyssey I, II, and V, Shin Megami Tensei IV FINAL, DEEP STRANGE JOURNEY, and Devil Survivor 2 Break Record, Radiant Historia Perfect Chronology, and Persona Q Shadow of the Labyrinth. All of these titles are now ¥3,218.

Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers coming to Nintendo Switch

Persona 5S has seemingly revealed to be Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers. This Warriors game, set in Atlus's Persona 5 universe and developed by Koei Tecmo Games, will be coming to Nintendo Switch. No release date was given.

RUMOR: Best Buy internal listing shows more evidence of Persona 5 Switch

Will it be for real this time?

While it's not searchable on Best Buy's public website, apparently their internal listings for store employees shows that Persona 5 Switch is indeed on the way.

Best buy P5 Switch

Seems like the images above pretty much confirm that Persona 5 Switch is the real deal, so long as you believe the images themselves are legit. We'll reach out to some sources and see if they can't confirm the listing.

Thanks to Dondom95 for the heads up!

RUMOR - Latest trailer for Persona 5: The Royal sheds new light on a recent Smash Bros. Ultimate datamine

A little ditty 'bout Jack & Jane

Persona 5: The Royal received a new trailer today, and once again, there was no mention of the Switch. That means all hope is lost for a port, right? Not necessarily, as a Smash Bros. Ultimate datamine detail from last month now makes a lot more sense after today's trailer.

Last month, dataminer Dr. Hyper Cake shared the following discovery from Smash Bros. Ultimate's source code.

There is another reference to "Jack" that I feel should be mentioned: "/Jack6_C06_v01_070925.mb_Jane1_pony_hairSystemShape2.mchp"". @jam1garner was the first to notice it in the string dump. I've seen some interesting theories about what "Jane" could refer to relative to Joker.

This information didn't really draw much attention from fans, but today it makes a ton of sense. The new trailer for Persona 5: The Royal showed off a new character for the game. While we didn't get a name for the character in the trailer, we did see that she has a ponytail, and this is prominently displayed in the trailer.

Could this woman in the new trailer be the Jane with a ponytail referenced in the Smash Bros. Ultimate datamine? It certainly does line up, and would make you think that Jane will be an alternate for Joker, who was named 'Jack' in the source code.

Of course, that's all speculation for right now. We'll just have to hang tight and cross our fingers for an announcement confirming all this. As for now, which side of the fence are you on?

Famitsu print ad - Etrian Odyssey Art Museum art book (second ad)

Famitsu has already shared one advertisement for the upcoming Etrian Odyssey Art Museum art book, but that was back when the book was just announced. This new advert includes the release date, price point, page count, and the recently-revealed cover art. Remember, this book has a reversible cover if you're looking for something a bit more coffee table-friendly.

Catherine Full Body website's source code includes a Nintendo mention, but is this evidence of a Switch release, or a mistake?

Someone over on Reddit went snooping around the North American website for Catherine Full Body, and they found something interesting. A bit of the source code makes mention of Nintendo. The thing is, the mention might be nothing more than a mistake, rather than a hint of Switch release.

According to some fans, this issue could be due to someone copying/pasting the footer logo code from another site, as the code links to a PS4 logo image, and uses the PS4 alt tag within the "Nintendo" class. This would mean the person who worked on the site simply left the wrong class in place.
