Monster Hunter Generations gets new crossover armor and weapon sets today. Capcom brings one of their most iconic arcade franchises with Ghosts ‘n Goblins. Felynes can get a set of armor that decks them out to look like Arthur. Fans of Fire Emblem get a treat with a new set of armor that will bring the iconic look of Marth into the game. Not only that, but you can also wield the Falchion sword.
Both of these new sets can be acquired from the set of 15 quests that will drop into the game today. Check out the trailer below if you want to see the Fire Emblem costume in action.

We’re back after a week (and a day) off due to a ridiculous amount of wrestling kept us away. This week Nick is poorly and we talk about Nintendo going back to Red and White, Miitomo and a new Mega Man TV show. We also give our top 5 things that we’d like to see in the next Pokemon game and discuss our thoughts on the original Fire Emblem game.
Sorry for the audio issues this week. We were the victims of horrible lag thanks to Skype. We’re exploring options for a better more stable connection ready for next week. Continue reading NintendPals: Episode 51

Fire Emblem Fates has become the fastest selling launch title in the series in North America. Nintendo announced today that across both versions of the game currently available the title has sold a combined 300,000 units in the area. Birthright is the best selling of the two versions with Conquest close behind.
Previous to this Fire Emblem Awakening was the record holder, but this most recent game sold more than 5 times that title in the same amount of time. The series has come from virtual death with Awakening potentially being the last title in the series to one of the better selling franchises for Nintendo in the region.
Users who purchase one version of the game, whether digitally or through retail stores get a discount on the other title by purchasing it through the in-game store that becomes available after Chapter 6. Players who purchased the Collector’s Edition of the game have access to a third branch in the story, Revelation. Other players can begin playing that branch on March 10th by purchasing it for $19.99 through the in-game store.
If you want to add a little bit more to your game the map pack bundle is available for $17.99 and will give you access to 11 new maps and missions as they become available from now through April.
Amazon Mexico started selling physical items today. As you can probably guess, the service took off. According to a tweet from CNN, the first item sold was actually an Ike Amiibo. Apparently, because the service just launched, it had items that are hard to find in other regions. This means all those hard to find Amiibos
are up for sale… were up for sale earlier today.
Amazon Mexico doesn’t ship items outside of Mexico so at least all those rare Amiibo’s aren’t easily obtainable by foreigners. Hopefully people were able to snag the goodies before the poachers flocked on this. To the person who was able to snag this first, good game.
