Tomorrow’s Wii U VC game for North America is the long awaited N64 Classic Ogre Battle 64: Person of Lordly Caliber. It arrived recently on the European eShop and now is coming to North America.

It’s up to you to defeat the Empire!

Ogre Battle 64: Person of Lordly Caliber is a tactical RPG originally released for the Nintendo 64 system. The game tells the story of Magnus Gallant, a recently graduated officer of the Palatinean Army who is assigned to the troubled southern region of his native land. There he witnesses the plight of the lower classes – the victims of a tyrannical ruling elite whose only thought is for the preservation of their own lofty status. With civil war brewing, Magnus is faced with a terrible choice: to betray his own noble origins in the name of liberty, or turn a blind eye to the evils of his rotten society.

Will you be buying this game when the eShop updates tomorrow? Let us know!

In a recent interview with Game Informer, Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma was asked if Nintendo would be merging the console Zelda and handheld Zelda teams now that the Switch will serve as a successor to both lines of systems. There has traditionally been two teams working on different styles of games, for example Skyward Sword and A Link Between Worlds, both of which produce high quality games, but with a different direction in mind.

Aonuma answered by pointing out that combining the two teams would not speed up the development process and reiterated that the two teams have different approaches to game development. Anouma stated that rather than combine the two teams, he would like them both to work on Zelda games and build on what they have done previously in their projects for the Switch.

When asked directly if there would be a handheld style Zelda game on the Switch, Anouma responded that it was “Definitely a Possibility”. This is a good thing, as it would be a big loss to not have that second line of creativity for Zelda.

Nintendo has revealed DLC is coming to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild,.

There will b an Expansion Pass for the game at launch for $19.99 / £17.99 / €19.99. By buying it, you will receive three new treasure chests that can be found at the Great Plateau. One contains a shirt with a Switch logo that Link can wear, which is exclusive to the Expansion Pass. Nintendo has said that “The other two will deliver useful items.”

The first DLC pack launches around this summer. It will come with  the following: A Cave of Trials challenge, a new hard mode, & a new feature for the in-game map.

The second pack will come at the holidays. Thus DLC adds “new challenges that will let players enjoy a new dungeon and a new original story.”

Nintendo has stated that the Expansion Pass will be available for both the Switch and Wii U versions of the game.

Nintendo said the following about the DLC announcement.

“The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for the Nintendo Switch and Wii U consoles is one of the largest, most engaging video games Nintendo has ever created. While the main game offers players an engrossing quest that will keep them entertained for hours, as well as the freedom to explore the vast Hyrule at their own pace, the game world provides a rich canvas that offers the opportunity for additional adventures. As a result, the first-ever downloadable content for the main-line Legend of Zelda series is in development.”

These are amazing games, and I am happy to have them on the system, but I am wondering why they are only coming now. They would have been appreciated earlier.

No GravatarThe developers of Nefarious have released a new trailer for the upcoming game. Nefarious sees you playing as a villain kidnapping princesses, in a role reversal from the usual video game idea, so what better thing to have in the game than reverse boss fights. You are the boss and must fight the hero at the end of the stage, and what a variety of fights there are.

See the trailer below.
