I'm still in the remnants of moving house so finding actual time to play games is still a bit of a premium.

That said I did manage to spend a chunk of Saturday playing Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE, which I'm quite enjoying. It's Shin Megami light, I may have said all this before last time I did a WWP, but yeah, it's even lighter than Persona for the most part

I think I complained last time that I had finished a mission and was dreading the downtime in between. It's not been that bad but it is the worst thing about the game I'd say. I'm at a similar point now, and I could just push on, but there's side quests to do, spiritual growth to acquire. Some of the dungeons seem to be better than others, the camera one I did last wouldn't rank amongst my favourites, hopefully the next one is better. Still though; Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE is a good game, I'm intending to finish it

In other # related gaming, I also spent some time with Chime Sharp (or Chime# I've really no idea which is correct anymore). I really liked Chime back on the 360, and kickstarted this sequel. I've posted a video so I won't dwell on it too much, but apart from a few issues with the UI (it's not that easy to see whilst you're in the midst of the game), and pining for some of my favourite bands on the soundtrack, I've been enjoying the snatched moments I've had with it

In a Nintendo Direct today, the company announced, amongst other things, the English name for Shin Megami Tensei/Fire Emblem crossover #FE, and it's... wait a second...

Also Cloud and someone from the new Fire Emblem.

In the final Nintendo Direct not only of the year but also for the current Smash Bros. games, Nintendo have revealed the final three characters to be added as downloadable content- all three of who will be getting an Amiibo at some unspecified point in the future.

Show/hide video

First up is Corrin from the forthcoming Fire Emblem: Fates, who, like other FE leads has a selectable gender and for reasons which will probably be better explained in his/her native game, can transform in whole or in part to a dragon.

Next on the list is Final Fantasy VII protag Cloud, putting recent rumours to bed as to his inclusion.

The very final character to be included, right at the end of the presentation after revealing a new stack of hats for Team Fortress 2 Mii Fighters, was Bayonetta's Bayonetta.

What's interesting about the presentation is that Sakurai goes to great lengths to explain the unique aspects of each character.

Corrin's weapon can be stuck in the ground, indefinitely stunning its recipient allowing the player to take a second to decide what to do with them. Cloud has his Limit Breaks, and Bayo her Witch Time.

The reason this is interesting as they've shown you all the tools you'll have at your disposal when you download the characters ahead of time, allowing the player to roll straight into using the characters to their full potential rather than spend ages working out how to operate them properly- and of course, let those who are playing against them what to expect.

Cloud should be available to download now- assuming the news hasn't just left a smoking crater where Nintendo's servers used to be- and the other two are out in February.

I never quite got around to Project X Zone, but I did hear some good things. After the likes of Namco X Capcom and Cross Edge I'd learnt that, despite my best intentions, I never get close to the end of these games

Project X Zone 2 has some new ways to tempt people in though, added to their menagerie of a roster are character from Fire Emblem and Xenoblade Chronicles

I loved Fire Emblem Awakening, so seeing Chrom and Lucina make an appearance is good news, and joining them is Fiora from Xenoblade Chronicles.

It's a smart move by Nintendo, allowing their characters to be used like this (and not just in Project X Zone), with their new consoles still a while out, drawing attention and focus to games on their platforms, even if they're 3rd party games, is a cost free way of keeping some sort of mind share

That's as nobby a sentence as I've written today, but it's done now, take a look at the screen shots posted below, and Project X Zone 2 comes out for the 3DS on the 19th February
