Yacht Club Games had the honor of making the first ever third party amiibo with Shovel Knight – and it sounds like they’d be up for making some more. In an interview with Gadgets 360, Yacht Club Games director Sean Velasco had the following to say about the possibility of more amiibo from them:

“As far as more amiibo go… man, wouldn’t it be cool to see amiibo of Plague Knight, Specter Knight, and King Knight!? That would be amazing. Maybe some day.”

Of course, this might just be wishful thinking on Velasco’s part and he might not be teasing anything specific, but given how successful Shovel Knight has been and Yacht Club Games’ close relationship with Nintendo, it’s certainly not impossible.

The latest episode of the Play Nintendo Show is live. For the latest entry, Andrew, and Izzy return to Super Mario Maker for 3DS. Check out the video below.

Taiko no Tatsujin has regularly appeared on dedicated game systems, but it also has various versions in arcades. Yesterday, the new Taiko no Tatsujin: Yellow Version was released in Japan, and it even features a song from Splatoon – specifically Calamari Inkantation from the Squid Sisters.

Here’s a look:

Factor 5 co-founder Julian Eggebrecht appeared on the latest episode of German podcast Spieleveteranen. During the talk, Eggebrecht weighed in on Switch.

Regarding Switch’s technical performance, Eggebrecht said its between Wii U and Xbox One. However, he claims that developing is as easy or even easier than the PlayStation 4. Switch is further supported by having all modern GPU standards.

Factor 5 was thought to be dead at a few points, but they’re apparently alive and kicking again. The company even has the rights to Turrican, so perhaps that’s something that could appear on Switch in the future.

Nintendo will have an update on its financials not too long from now. The company’s next Fiscal Year Earnings Release will be issued on April 27, the company confirmed today.

Obviously we’ll be receiving an update on Nintendo’s performance for the overall fiscal year ending March 31. That should include news about Switch’s sales as well.

It was actually on April 27 of last year when we heard that Switch would be launching the following March. Nintendo also announced the Switch version of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and confirmed that it would be its only game at E3 2016. Finally, Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing titles for mobile were made known.

We shouldn’t necessarily expect similar-sized announcements this time around. Still, there’s a possibility that Nintendo could share some news.

Today, Jason Michael Paul Entertainment announced 2017 tour dates for The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses. Events will be held across North America and around the world. 

The show is planning “some big surprises, including an all new movement from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, an updated overture, and the return of a classic that might just make some wishes come true”. Fans can look forward to music featuring Zelda: Breath of the Wild, the return of Ballad of the Wind Fish from the original program, and more.

The full lineup of tour dates and ticket links are as follows:

Four new CPSIA certificates have popped up on Nintendo’s website. The full set received dates of March 6.

Based on the filings, it would seem that these are all tied to the Smash Bros. amiibo line in one form or another. The figures are known to start with “AA”, and as it turns out, that’s what these new ones have as well.

We’re still waiting on Bayonetta, Cloud, and Corrin to release. It’d be certainly be nice if Nintendo had something to say about when we’ll be getting these figures.

Mr. Squishy has managed to fully recreate the Pokemon Red experience in Minecraft. After working on the project for 21 months, he shared the fruits of his labor on Reddit this past weekend. We posted about something similar last year with FireRed, though this one is entirely finished.

357,000 command blocks were used here. It contains “all of the original game’s features, along with a few iconic bugs.” Since the project done manually, Mr. Squishy walked the equivalent of 2,832.89 kilometers in-game.

Minecraft fans can play Pokemon Red in the game through a realistic Game Boy. It’s even possible to customize the color of the shell.

The download link for the relevant files is located here. Keep in mind that you’ll need to roll back Minecraft a few versions in order for it to work.
