Smash Brothers Ultimate: Jedi Shows off Byleth Stream on the 28th

Hey there folks, Jedi here. I plan on streaming to show off Byleth in Super Smash Brothers Ultimate once they’re released on 28th January (PST).

The stream will likely be around Noon, Pacific Standard Time (PST). We’ll be doing their classic mode, along with some random training mode labbing/matches and maybe throw in some online matches as well.

It’ll be on my Twitch at: https://www.twitch.tv/jedisupersonicsf/

Hope to see you there! Maybe we could even do a fun little Q&A.

Fire Emblem Warriors Free Trial for Japanese and Hong Kong Switch Online Members 1/20 through 1/26

Fire Emblem fans who have a Nintendo Switch Online subscription for a Japanese or Hong Kong region account have the opportunity to trial run Fire Emblem Warriors between 20th and 26th January 2020.

Here’s the Japanese trailer announcing the game trial.

Nintendo Hong Kong also shared an article with the same offer for their region.

Similar to the game trials for Mario Tennis Aces in the West and Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker in Japan, fans can download the full game and play it within the specified dates. Afterwards, they must purchase the game if they wish to continue playing.

To qualify for the game trial, you must have a Nintendo Switch Online subscription active on a Japanese or Hong Kong region account. You can’t simply cheat by switching accounts (like for the Famicom apps).

That said, if you have a family plan with a spare slot, you could add a Japanese or Hong Kong region account to it. Alternatively, you could purchase a Nintendo Switch Online 7 day free trial for 100 Platinum Coins from the Japanese My Nintendo website (Nintendo states that this will work).

Once the game trial period is active, there will be a separate download link near the top of the game’s eShop product page (where the blue arrow is).

As a note from someone who has played both the Japanese and English versions of this game, the Japanese version does not have English language support unlike say Dynasty Warriors 9.

Additionally, between 20th January and 2nd February, both the game itself as well as the season pass (which contains all three DLC packs) will be discounted by 40%. This deal will only be available via the Japanese and Hong Kong eShops.

Each DLC pack comes with 3 history maps, 3 playable characters and several new weapon additions (including abilities and skills). As well as several new mission types sprinkled all over. Basically, there’s lots of contents for you to challenge.

To see a brief demonstration of the three DLC packs, please check these links:

If you’re interested to know my initial thoughts on the game back in 2017, when it first launched, you can read my review of the Japanese version.

Day 1 Fire Emblem Three Houses Stream (11a PST)

Hey there folks, Jedi here, (some know me as Jedisupersonic or Serenes_Jedi). I will be streaming the first several hours of the Golden Deer route on my streaming channel over on Twitch. (https://www.twitch.tv/serenes_jedi) on the 26th, much like how I did with Fire Emblem Warriors back in 2017.

As voted by the forums here on Serenes Forest, we will be playing as Male Byleth on the Golden Deer route, and as I’ve polled both here and Reddit, our Byleth’s name will be Sirius, a rather double edged reference for both old FE itself and Harry Potter.

The stream will kick off around 11 am PDT/PST. The length of the stream will likely be until my fully charged joycons run out of battery…roughly around 5 hours.

This first stream will likely be followed by loosely-scheduled ones, and I’ll decide the timing on as it goes. There might also be a brief stream at midnight earlier in that same day, so as to test things and to get through a little bit of the Blue Lions opening. If that does happen and you catch it, expect legendary LTCer (Low Turn Counts Player) and good friend of mine, General Horace to be joining me for just our first small impressions.

Additionally, I will be laying some ground rules, which are honestly just requests for common courtesy in the chat. Outside of the ordinary requests for politeness, I just have a few specific requests:

  • Please refrain from dishing out spoilers, I know some myself from all the datamining, and tons can be found on Reddit if you look hard enough, but please do not spoil stuff for the new viewers/players.
  • Please do not bring up the controversy of Chris Niosi (the voice actor for Byleth!M). I’m well aware of it, and we don’t need to waste time with something we cannot control.
  • I will be taking some suggestions from the chat, but I will be limited in what I’m able to do. Please understand that if I do not get to your request, it is not because I overlooked or ignored it.

That should cover everything! I hope to have a grand ol’ time, and look forward to having community involvement from fellow fans! Release is so soon! If you have any further questions or anything about 3H, you can message me at @Jedisupersonic on Twitter, or just say hello in Twitch chat, or hit me up on the Forums.

Three Houses: English Website goes live, voice samples, observations
