XSEED often tends to support Nintendo platforms. Even when the Wii U was winding down, the publisher brought Shantae: Half-Genie Hero and Exile’s End to Wii U by working with WayForward and Magnetic Realms respectively.

With Switch, XSEED once again has plans to support a Nintendo system. A representative from the company told one fan that announcements will be made “soon”. Although, mysteriously, “it may not specifically be for the titles and series you’re looking for.”

XSEED said:

“We are big supporters of the Switch so you’ll definitely be seeing some announcements about it from us soon, though it may not specifically be for the titles and series you’re looking for.”

Square Enix previously announced free DLC for I Am Setsuna, known as the Temporal Battle Arena. Today, the publisher issued a release date in an email sent out to fans. The Temporal Battle Arena will be out on Thursday as a content patch.

For the uninitiated, I Am Setsuna’s Temporal Battle Arena lets you participate in battles against other players parties. It can be accessed by progressing through the main story and talking to a character that appears on a specific map.

Puyo Puyo Tetris already has a demo on the Japanese Switch eShop. If you’ve been holding out for an English version, you’ll be happy to hear that it should be released soon.

An image included with Puyo Puyo Tetris’ listing on the European eShop makes note of the demo. It’s not out just yet, but with the game launching in North America and Europe this month, it shouldn’t be too long until SEGA makes the download available.

Nintendo UK has posted on their site an interesting interview with Snake Pass creator, Seb Liese.

One of the most important tidbits that we could extract is that developer Sumo Digital still has a lot of funny ideas that couldn’t be implemented in the final game, so the potential for downloadable content or even a sequel is there.

But Seb Liese notes that they would have to make sure that players have already mastered controlling the snake Noodle before implementing new and creative challenges:

“There’s so many crazy things that Noodle could still do, if only we were sure that people have the skills. So if and when we go DLC, you’ll get some really cool things that we know he can do.”

The full interview is available at Nintendo UK’s website. Check it out if you want to learn more about Snake Pass.

Mario isn’t foreign to strange advertisements in Japan. You may recall that some kooky commercials were made for Mercedes-Benz a few years ago.

Mario and friends are back in action to promote Dekavita C, a Japanese energy drink. It’s not a one-sided promotion, as these new videos also show off the 3DS and highlight the recently-released Mario Sports Superstars.
