Remakes and remastering games are nothing new. In fact, the last year or so has had a plethora of remade or remastered games. Results of which are…mixed at best. Today, another title was announced to join that group of games, however this one may be a remastering all unto itself.
Monster Tale Ultimate, a remake of the 2011 Nintendo DS title Monster Tale, has been announced as coming to the 3DS. In case you never heard of this game, you play as a young girl named Ellie, who just so happens to be lost in Monster World. In the game you try and get her home, all the while trying to save Monster Role with her companion Chomp. That’s the big guy in the pic above.
So, if this is a remake/remastering…what is getting remade/remastered? According to the developer DreamRift, everything! The visuals are getting redone and made better with new assets, 3D support, gameplay adjustments and fixes, AND the ability to switch between two music forms. You can either play the original chiptune musical score, or a new orchestral soundtrack.
According to DreamRift, the gameplay got a lot of rebalancing and enhancing, fixing a lot of complaints fans had for the original title. They fixed them happily, all the while making sure the game didn’t lose it’s difficulty.
DreamRift’s Peter Ong said:
“A lot of the rebalancing has nothing to do with difficulty. [It] is instead about making the various components of the game more balanced in a manner that makes the game more strategically interesting.”
At present, Monster Tale is set to launch this spring as a 3DS eShop exclusive.
Now let’s get to the actual games. There will be plenty to keep Switch players busy through the remainder of the year, and some excellent stuff is now confirmed for 2022. Like a fully 3D Kirby, Splatoon 3 and the finally confirmed release window for Bayonetta 3! Castlevania Advance Collection
If your social media feeds seem especially busy right now and people can’t stop making Chris Pratt jokes, there’s a reason: Nintendo just dropped another Direct. As we typically do, we’ll be listing the revealed Fall 2021 – Winter 2022 game lineup in order of release, but there were so
Though Nintendo is usually stingy about who gets to play with their IP, holding tight controls over what Mario does and says outside of a game, the one area they’ve always been lax about is the manga industry. In the right-to-left paper universe, Nintendo characters are allowed to have non-canon
We figure that from this point forward, the reactions to Nintendo’s Switch Online game announcements will be less like “woohoo, that classic game is finally here!” and more like “uhhhh….what the heck is that?” Case in point: the three that were revealed today. Nothing is being added to the NES
