Guns, Gore & Cannoli coming soon to Switch
Posted 5 days ago by Brian in News, Switch eShop | 2 Comments
Guns, Gore & Cannoli isn’t too far away from reaching Switch. The European eShop has it down for December 21, and we would expect it to be out in North America around the same time.
Guns, Gore & Cannoli is an over-the-top action platformer in which you play as Vinnie Cannoli. The mafia summons you to find a small time gangster called Frankie who went missing since the zombie-outbreak.
We’ve included a bunch of additional information about Guns, Gore & Cannoli, along with a trailer.
Update (12/11): We’re hearing that the steelcase will be free for those who purchase a copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe at Best Buy next week. It will show as $59.99 on its own for those who don’t buy the game.
Original (12/10): A listing has appeared on Best Buy’s website for a new Mario Kart steelcase. Strangely, it shows a release date of December 5 and a $60 price point.
We’re not quite sure what’s going on with this listing. You can’t actually buy the steelcase at present, and $60 seems oddly high. In any case, we’ll keep tabs on the situation and will let you know if we hear anything more.

Runbow for Switch will apparently have a physical version
Posted 5 days ago by Brian in News, Switch | 13 Comments
As we know, Runbow is heading to another console next year. 13AM Games’ Wii U classic will be on Switch towards the start of 2018.
A listing on Amazon Spain indicates that we’ll be seeing a physical version of Runbow courtesy of Merge Games. The page states that the Satura’s Space Adventure DLC, a pack of four suits, and soundtrack volumes 1 and 2 will be included.
Runbow’s physical version is listed for a March 31 release, but that’s just tentative.
Super Mario Odyssey completed without jumping, technically
Posted 5 days ago by Brian in News, Random, Switch | 13 Comments
Super Mario Odyssey is all about jumping. Yet despite that, one person has managed to complete the experience without that action – at least according to what the game classifies as such.
Super Mario Odyssey has an interesting definition of jumping. Capturing the necessary enemies for completion and then using any of the “jumping” actions doesn’t actually increase the official counter. Likewise, Super Mario Odyssey only classifies some actions as jumps, such as standard jumps, double jumps, and triple jumps. Everything required for the “Y” button is legal, for example, and going up in the air by bouncing off of Cappy’s hat is fine.
Based on what Super Mario Odyssey says is and isn’t a jump, Gamechamp3000 set out on a mission to see if you could complete the game. The results: it’s possible to finish without jumping, technically. There were bumps along the way, but Gamechamp3000 managed to do it. You can see how it all played out in the video below.

Physical version of The Count Lucanor spotted
Posted 5 days ago by Brian in News, Switch | 4 Comments
The Count Lucanor landed on Switch a few months ago. However, the game has only been sold digitally on the eShop.
Those who have expressed interest in a physical copy of The Count Lucanor may soon have their voices heard. Over on Amazon Spain, a listing for the game has popped up. You’ll receive a cartridge and an “exclusive” manual with a purchase.
Amazon Spain lists a tentative January 31 release date for The Count Lucanor’s physical Switch version.
Thanks to Axel for the tip.
