Nintendo has returned with another Twitter update for Super Mario Odyssey. The latest update covers the Uproots, one of the many objects in the game that can be captured.
The Captured Uproots can be used to extend high into the air. Not only can you reach certain areas that you wouldn’t be able to normally, but you can also hit blocks very quickly.

Sonic the Hedgehog is a series that’s both famous and infamous for many different reasons. In his hay-day, Sonic was perhaps the number one rival to Nintendo’s best known character, Mario. During Sonic’s early days on the SEGA Genesis, or the SEGA Mega Drive for those outside of the U.S., the Sonic the Hedgehog titles received high praise from all over game’s media, and was seen by most critics as SEGA’s answer to Mario’s popularity. This success continued throughout Sonic’s 2D era of games, with subsequent entries receiving just as much, if not more praise than the last. However, once SEGA decided to make the jump from 2D to 3D, opinions regarding the changes to the series’ core became a bit more polarizing. Some critics and fans regarded the changes as a necessity to move forward in-step with the evolving industry; while others felt that the series was straying too far from the its roots and was starting to water-down what made Sonic the Hedgehog appealing to begin with. Over the years, SEGA has attempted to bring the series back to its roots in several ways, but none have ever quite captured that same magic that fans were hoping for. That is, until Sonic Mania.

Posted 3 days ago by Brian in News, Switch | 7 Comments
The teases are going up a notch with a new tweet published on the Japanese ARMS Twitter account just a short while ago. It gives us a first look at the new fighter, but it’s pretty blurry. You can get a very rough idea as to how the character looks below.
Miitomo has been updated with new content. Players can nab the latest items in the Miitomo Drop stage, “Set sail on the Seven Seas! Miitomo Pirate Crew #2”.
Available items include:
– Pirate matey bandanna
– Pirate mat outfit (top)
– Pirate mate outfit (bottoms)
– Pirate gal costume
Users can select Miitomo Drop stages from the Shop tab. Miitomo coins or game tickets are needed to play.
With Sonic Mania having been released, players are finding out about all sorts of interesting features and modes. One of these is Debug Mode.
Debug Mode can be accessed by entering Mania Mode and hovering over the “No Save” icon on the right. You’ll then need to press “X” to activate the options. Debug should be one of the options along with a couple of others.
Here’s a look at Debug Mode:

Alchemic Dungeons made it to Europe over a month ago. In North America, the digital game is scheduled for this week. Circle Entertainment announced via Twitter that a release is planned for Thursday.
Alchemic Dungeons is a roguelike featuring item crafting. More information is included below.
Update: Bumped to the top. The same person has uploaded more footage from Troll and I on Switch after a hard reboot. The performance is better, fortunately. Still, it’s worrisome to hear about the various issues with the game thus far.
Original: Troll and I was put on Switch today. If you’re curious as to what the game is all about, check out some footage below. Just be aware of that game breaking bug… and what looks to be massive performance issues.
Super Mario Odyssey getting an official guide, including collector’s edition
Posted 4 days ago by Brian in News, Switch | 9 Comments
Prima is continuing its relationship with Nintendo for another big guide. When Super Mario Odyssey launches at the end of October, it will be accompanied by a new guide.
The guide will come in two versions. Amazon lists a standard release as well as a collector’s edition (Amazon Canada here and here). The former is 320 pages and paperback while the latter is 336 pages and hardcover.
In terms of what the guide offers, that’s a bit of a mystery right now. It will obviously include gameplay information and tips, but Amazon’s description hasn’t updated. We’ll keep an eye on the listings for any future news.
Thanks to Wagner C for the tip.
