To commemorate the release of Min Min in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Nintendo has put out another piece of art. The drawing, coming from the ARMS development team, can be found above.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has been updated, and the game is now at version 8.0.0. All players can access the patch as of now.

Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield are now hosting a new Max Raid Battle event. A number of Steel-type and Rock-type Pokemon are being featured, including Rhydon, Steelix, and Gigantamax Copperajah.
