Nintendo has released a couple of trailers for the upcoming Mario vs. Peach Tour in Mario Kart Tour. These two trailers show off the members of both teams as well as some gameplay from the event.

The Australian classification for Shin Megami Tensei V has been released and there’s an interesting tidbit about online listed in the consumer advice. As seen below, the consumer advice section of the classification gives the warning of “online interactivity,” typically meaning that there is an online element to the game that is not rated by the ratings board.

What exactly this comment is referring to is not detailed in the classification, but it’s possible that it hints at some sort of online functionality in Shin Megami Tensei V.

Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse had a feature to share online content over Street Pass, so perhaps the game will attempt something similar using interconnectivity between Switches. Whatever it is, only time will tell and hopefully Atlus will detail this feature soon.
