Yacht Club: Shovel Knight sold more units out of the gate on Switch than any other platform
Posted on 2 months ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop | 2 Comments | 0 Likes
Shovel Knight first appeared nearly three years ago. Despite that, the game did incredibly well on Switch at launch.
Yacht Club’s David D’Angelo told GamesIndustry that Shovel Knight “sold more units out of the gate than any other platform.” However, he also cautioned that the eShop is beginning to become more crowded, and believes Nintendo needs to find an easier way of highlighting both new and old titles.
“I believe many developers right now are experiencing the same phenomenon. At the moment, games definitely stand out when they launch and consumers are excited to purchase, but at this rate there will be an over-abundance of games. We hope Nintendo updates the eShop to make it easier to highlight and find new and old titles.”

Dark Horse and Nintendo have had a close relationship in recent years. The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia, The Legend of Zelda: Art & Artifacts, The Art of Fire Emblem Awakening, and The Art of Splatoon have all been released in North America thanks to the partnership.
Today, Dark Horse announced a new publishing partnership for ARMS that will turn the Switch game into graphic novels. The first one will debut in Fall 2018.
Further details were not shared. Since the graphic novels are about a year away, it’ll likely be awhile until we hear more.

[Review] Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser’s Minions
Posted on 2 months ago by Vincent Ward in 3DS, Reviews | 2 Comments | 0 Likes
Release date: October 6, 2017
For many of us, Mario titles were the games we fell in love with growing up. Whether you were raised on the NES, N64, or even playing the more recent releases like Super Mario 3D World on Wii U, it’s likely you have some fond memories. For me, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga was that game. I remember the very concept of having a game this large in my pocket with me everywhere I went fascinated me all that time ago, and to hear that Nintendo is finally looking back on it with a glorious remodel filled my heart with joy. As someone who has already completed Superstar Saga several times over, I was a bit concerned about this new look being enough to buckle me in for a revisit. Yet thanks to some new additions, a trip down memory lane was definitely worth it.
