If you haven’t picked up the Zelda: Breath of the Wild Deluxe guide yet but have interest in doing so, you may want to purchase it soon. Publisher Piggyback has confirmed that the guide is on its way out. Once the current stock sells through, that’s it, and no more reprints are planned.

Amazon has the Zelda: Breath of the Wild Deluxe Edition guide in stock here. In fact, it’s just over $30 off.

Shovel Knight: Official Design Works was originally planned for August. For unknown reasons, the book ended up being pushed back, but a new (and hopefully final) release date has been announced.

You should be able to purchase Shovel Knight: Official Design Works beginning on October 17. Amazon has also reopened pre-orders after previously closing them here.

Shovel Knight: Official Design Works is packed with all sorts of content. It includes key art, character concepts, enemy designs, sprite sheets, unused ideas, and a new tribute art gallery! Creator commentary and an exclusive interview are also featured.

At the Tokyo Game Show earlier today, the primary winners announced for the Japan Game Awards 2017. Nintendo was a big winner at the event, especially due to Zelda: Breath of the Wild taking home the Grand Award.

Zelda: Breath of the Wild was also selected for the Award of Excellence along with Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon. The Pokemon games also won the Global Award for Japanese products.

Here’s the full roundup of awards:

A list has been published showing how many games each major gaming platform has on display at the Tokyo Game Show this year. Switch is included, and it looks like the console has a pretty good showing.

46 different Switch games can be found at TGS. As the system’s first year, that isn’t too shabby. Indie games and other smaller eShop titles are definitely a factor, but those types of projects shouldn’t be ignored.

We’re also able to see that 3DS representation is down heavily from 36 games in 2016 to just 9 this year. Wii U has also gone down from 13 to 3, though that’s hardly surprising.


The latest Japanese hardware sales from Media Create are as follows:

Switch – 44,052
PS4 – 19,322
New 3DS LL – 10,650
New 2DS LL – 8,761
PS4 Pro – 5,338
Vita – 3,847
2DS – 1,726
New 3DS – 428
PS3 – 99
Wii U – 86
Xbox One – 57

For comparison’s sake, here are the hardware numbers from last week:

Switch – 45,439
PS4 – 18,483
PS4 Pro – 10,999
New3DS LL – 9,628
New2DS LL – 9,403
Vita – 3,913
2DS – 1,772
New 3DS – 331
PS3 – 115
Wii U – 90
Xbox One – 63

And here are the software charts:

Nintendo has kicked off another Zelda: Breath of the Wild item distribution on Switch. If you’ve subscribed to the game’s official news channel, you should be able to see the latest message from director Hidemaro Fujibayashi.

Nintendo sent out multiple items this time around. Along with a Bright-Eyed Crab, you’ll also receive a Stamella Shroom. This is the sixth item distribution for Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
