Nintendo advertising one of their products via posters at Shibuya station in Tokyo is nothing new – the company has advertised many of its biggest games and also the Switch this way. It probably comes as no surprise then that ARMS is the latest game to get this treatment. Shibuya station is one of the most heavily trafficked train stations in the world, so Nintendo’s newest IP is sure to get a lot of attention this way.

Today, Nintendo revealed via the official Splatoon Twitter account that a Splatoon-themed headset for the Switch will be released in Japan. Manufactured by video game accessory giant HORI, the headset will allow you to more easily use voice chat in Splatoon 2 (and other supported Switch games) via Nintendo’s smart phone app.

The headset comes with an adapter which you have to connect to both your smartphone and your Switch, which results in better quality audio input and output compared to a setup where you’re just using your smartphone and no headset. The headset will be released on July 21st for a price of 3480 Yen.


Once again, Weekly Jump magazine has some new Dragon Quest XI info in its latest issue. This week, we’ve got new details on two party members and on one new location (thanks to Gematsu for the translation).


Veronica hates being treated like a child. She can equip two-handed staffs and whips as weapons. Despite her small size, she is a tomboy who won’t flinch in a fight no matter her opponent. She can unleash beyond-powerful attack spells that prove her use as the party’s attacker.

Spells she can use include:

  • “Kafrizzle” – A powerful spell where a pillar of overly-hot flames attack the enemy.
  • “Gilaglade” – Heat up and clear away the enemy with the earth-shaking flame that is this powerful attack spell.

Her weapon skills include:

  • “Berserk Magic Circle” – A special skill using the two-handed staff that strengthens spells.
  • “Extreme Dragon Strike” – A special skill using the whip that consecutively strikes the enemy.


Senya is a healer who can cure her allies. She can equip spears and sticks. She has a kind heart and gentle personality. In contrast to Veronica, her language is awfully polite. Her easygoing and gentle personality may even make Veronica impatient at times.

Spells she can use include:

  • “Kerplunk” – A spell that heals all party members at the expense of herself.
  • “Kaswooshle” – An attack spell, which Senya can also use.
  • “Holy Light” – No description provided.

Her weapon skills include:

  • “Flash Strike” – A special skill using the stick and spear.
