Vulpix joins Build-A-Bear

Posted on 1 week ago by (@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News | 7 Comments | 0 Likes

Build-A-Bear is back once again with another Pokemon offering. Starting today, consumers can purchase a new Vulpix plush.

Below is the full rundown as to what’s being offered:

Michel Ancel directed the excellent Rayman Origins in 2011, followed by the equally-as-good Rayman Legends a couple of years later. The series hasn’t seen much movement since then, but Ancel hasn’t forgotten about the franchise.

On his Twitter page, Ancel mentioned wanting to bring Rayman back “for his fourth adventure”. He currently has his hands full with Beyond Good & Evil 2 and Wild, however. After those two projects wrap up, a new Rayman title may not be out of the question.

The Super NES Classic Edition and the Super Famicom Mini are fairly similar in the games they offer. However, there are some differences. On the Super Famicom Mini for example, EarthBound (Mother 2) isn’t included.

Nintendo’s Kazuyoshi Nishi explained the omission in an interview with Famitsu. Nishi spoke with the site about wanting to balance out the games according between various genres and titles people loved.

Retailers have started taking pre-orders for the Fire Emblem Fates Sakura Nendoroid. You can reserve it on Play-Asia, Good Smile, or AmiAmi.

Sakura will come with optional parts, including her staff together with healing effect parts as well as a rod of dumplings. The Nendoroid is tentatively scheduled to ship towards the start of June 2018.

This month’s EDGE review scores are as follows:

Super Mario Odyssey – 10
Destiny 2 – 8
Absolver – 8
Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite – 6
Steamworld Dig 2 – 8
Project Cars 2 – 8
Divinty: Original Sin 2 – 9
Star Fox 2 – 5
Metroid: Samus Returns – 6

The Nintendo World Championships 2017 took place this past weekend, and while it was happening, the event was being shown live on Disney XD. It seems to have gone over quite well given how the broadcast had the highest ratings for an eSports program on the channel this year. It beat out the Smash Bros. Wii U finals at EVO 2017 and repeats of Nintendo’s Splatoon 2 tournaments.

We also have a look at how the Nintendo World Championships 2017 stack up against eSports ratings across all channels in 2017. It came in 20th, which is pretty respectable, especially since many of the top spots are for CBS’ Candy Crush show.

Amazon hasn’t exactly done the best job with pre-orders of the Super NES Classic Edition. Many customers have yet to receive their units, despite putting down their reservation months ago.

Amazon also sent out emails to customers this week, stating that shipments have been delayed. Making matters worse, the retailer still doesn’t have a concrete date as to when they’ll have the SNES Classic Edition ready to ship out. The email also asks those who placed orders whether they “still want to receive this item.”

A new Pokemon promotion is coming to McDonald’s. According to the official website, new toys based on Sun and Moon are bound to be offered in Happy Meals soon. The three starting Pokemon, the Legendary Pokemon Solgaleo and Lunala, and more are pictured.

We don’t have an exact date as to when these toys will be appearing. The McDonald’s website indicates that they’re up next though, so they’re probably not too far off.

Famitsu has reported that the Nintendo Classic Mini Super Famicom has over sold 368,913 units in the first 4 days in Japan. This is almost double the sales of the Nintendo Classic Mini: Family Computer if you compare the 262,000 units sold on its first 4 days.
