There have been a bunch of third-party video games proven in at this time’s Nintendo Direct Mini Accomplice Showcase, however one particularly threw me at first look. Captain Velvet Meteor: The Leap+ Dimensions is an upcoming tactical RPG that leans into company from the Shonen Leap+ catalog.

Alongside the way in which, he imagines a roster of his favourite Leap+ characters filling his adventures. It’s an fascinating premise, emphasised by the presence of precise well-known faces from the Shonen Leap+ lineup.

As Damien, you may both chat with household in his grandmother’s residence or dive deep into the Leap+ Dimensions, a.okay.a. Damien’s creativeness, to play tactical battles. These will, in keeping with the eShop description, incorporate some puzzle and stealth parts. Plus team-up assaults, in fact.
It’s a novel concept that I’m shocked got here collectively. Whereas the pillars of Shonen Leap have had loads of video games about them, Leap+ is the newer child on the block. However its on-line subscription mannequin has been making waves, alongside the recognition of titles like Spy X Household. (YouTuber SuperEyepatchWolf has an incredible video on this sea change, for those who’re .)
These cameos, plus any promise of tactical RPG motion, have me pretty considering Captain Velvet Meteor. I’m a bit bummed by the absence of Chainsaw Man although, even when his explicit model of motion is likely to be slightly intense for this sport’s E for Everybody ranking.
Captain Velvet Meteor: The Leap+ Dimensions hits Nintendo Change on July 28, 2022.
