Atlus details a rather strict set of rules for streaming Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers

It's best not to stream at all

Atlus has been rather strict with their streaming allowances for new games, and that approach is going to continue with Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers. Atlus has shared a message on their official website detailing what isn't allowed, which you can find below.

- uploading screenshots or videos requires you to use the consoles’ own capture and share functions
- Atlus will not allow screenshots or videos captured via personal capture cards
- only upload videos to sites supported by the sharing features on Switch and PS4
- if you are showing event scenes or story scenes, you must clearly mention that there are spoilers
- footage/screenshots should also show: ©ATLUS ©SEGA/ ©KOEI TECMO GAMES All rights reserved
- do not use the gameplay footage for any other purposes other than showing gameplay
- do not only upload the BGM/music data, or use gameplay footage for the main purpose of listening to the music
- uploading gameplay to sites that require subscription services or payment to browse is counted as using gameplay for monetary purposes
- do not use the gameplay footage to slander other people
- if Atlus requests you to remove the video, please remove the video
- videos that Atlus deem are unacceptable will be deleted or taken off from viewing
- queries into this matter may or may not be answered by Atlus
- if the streaming or uploading of gameplay leads to monetary loss, Atlus does not hold any responsibility, nor will they pay any monetary compensation
- players are not allowed to share anything about the game’s endgame or anything afterwards

Thanks to Dondom95 for the heads up!

AI: The Somnium Files being review-bombed for a second time

Here we go again

Not even one week removed from the AI: The Somnium Files review bombing fiasco, and here we are yet again. The first time around, an angry fan decided to review bomb AI: The Somnium Files on Metacritic to show how broken Metacritic is, and also to express his distaste for how an in-game character was treated. That issue was corrected by fans swinging the review score back in the positive direction, but now we're seeing things get slammed once more.

The user review section is being bombarded with extremely low scores all over again, and most of the comments left for those scores are exactly the same. We have no idea who's behind the review bombing this time, nor do we know what their reasoning is. We'll keep tabs on the situation and see what info we can suss out.

Nintendo's Nate Bihldorff talks about Luigi stepping out of Mario's shadow, and Nintendo's DLC strategy

Mario, and Mario's bro

Nate Bihldorff, vice president of Product Development Design at Nintendo, was on-hand at the 2020 DICE Awards to accept anything Nintendo won, including Luigi's Mansion 3's "Outstanding Achievement in Animation" award. The USGamer gang had a second to talk to Bihldorff about the success of Luigi's Mansion 3 so far, and the unique genre's Mario's brother pops up in.

"Luigi in general, he's always the brother in the shadow, the older one. So to have him get on the same footing as Mario is pretty impressive, especially because the genre is not really a very common one. You can say Mario games are typically platformers, but what are Luigi's Mansion games? You know, they're isometric puzzle games. They're exploration games; they're adventure games. They're all those things all at once."

Bihldorff also talked a bit about Nintendo's approach to DLC. The company has taken a number of different approaches, including their own take on traditional season passes. Is there one method of DLC distribution that Nintendo favors over others?

"I think one thing that you can predict is that [Nintendo's] always unpredictable. So I wouldn't say that any of our current setups are necessarily indicative of one particular path we're gonna be chasing for the future. I think that you can count on us sort of trying everything out. Different things work for different games, and we'll probably continue to pursue that in the future."

Samurai Shodown director on the 'tough job' of porting the game to Switch

Not an easy task

Samurai Shodown has taken quite a bit longer to come to Switch, but the wait is almost over. With the game launching on Feb. 25th, 2020, Destructoid sat down with director Nobuyuki Kuroki to see what it took to bring the game to Nintendo's platform. Check out Kuroki's comments below.

The hardware specs of Switch differ greatly from the others, so it was necessary to do more research after the game on other platform was completed. We are sorry to keep our Switch users waiting, but we believe it will be a wonderful game on Switch.

...Since we use the Unreal Engine, it won’t take too long if we just need to output the data to Switch. But for us, the challenging point is making the game run at 60 FPS on the Switch.
Thanks to Safari Games, the company that oversaw the porting process, we were able to achieve our goal.

For this part of the work, I only gave some advice. Porting the game to the Switch takes a lot of work and it’s a tough job. So, we really appreciate how Safari Games has done their job so well.
