ARMS update 5.4.1

Nintendo has started distribution of a small update for another Switch game, and we can now mention that ARMS players can download version 5.4.1.

The official patch notes mimic what we saw today with Splatoon 2, Super Mario Maker 2, and Animal Crossing: New Horizons (see here, here, and here respectively). Once again, Nintendo simply states that “several issues have been addressed to improve the gameplay experience.” Although we don’t have any other information, all of the games that were updated tonight were likely done so for the same reason.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons update 2.0.6

Nintendo has been a bit update crazy with a few different Switch games tonight, and the pattern continues with Animal Crossing: New Horizons moving up to version 2.0.6.

If you’ve kept up with our posts about Splatoon 2 and Super Mario Maker 2 (here and here respectively), you probably know what to expect here. Nintendo says of today’s Animal Crossing: New Horizons update: “Several issues have been addressed to improve the gameplay experience.”

Super Mario Maker 2 update 3.0.2

The 2019 Switch game Super Mario Maker 2 has been given a new version 3.0.2 update. All players can download it now.

Like the new update that just went out for Splatoon 2, the patch notes for Super Mario Maker 2 are keeping things simple. Nintendo only states: “Several issues have been addressed to improve the gameplay experience.” The fact that a couple of Nintendo’s older titles were updated at the same time suggests that something more is going on here, but the Big N doesn’t want to elaborate.

Splatoon 2 update 5.5.1

A new version 5.5.1 update has just gone live for Splatoon 2 – though it’s admittedly not very exciting. According to Nintendo’s patch notes, “several issues have been addressed to improve the gameplay experience.”

While it’s far from massive, it’s nonetheless the first update for Splatoon in over a year. The previous patch, version 5.5.0, included a ton of changes such as weapon adjustments. You can find more information about it here.

Orbital Bullet gameplay

Orbital Bullet just recently dropped on Switch, and we have a new round of gameplay. We have a closer look at the action platformer from Assemble Entertainment and SmokeStab.

Here’s some information about the game:

Relic Hunters Zero: Remix, Kardboard Kings physical

Special Reserve Games has largely been known for putting out physical versions of Devolver Digital titles, but it has now teamed up with Akupara Games for boxed versions of Relic Hunters Zero: Remix and Kardboard Kings on Switch.

Both will have a standard edition and “Switch Reserve” editions. All copies include the cartridge with critical updates, patches, and DLC at the time of manufacture, reversible jacket artwork, and an instruction booklet. The “Switch Reserve” edition adds sequentially numbered packaging, an art card, manga-style comic (Kardboard Kings only), and Special Reserve box.

Here’s some information about both games:

Pikmin Bloom Pikmin 3 Deluxe event

Pikmin Bloom is celebrating its first anniversary, and in honor of the occasion, a special Pikmin 3 Deluxe event is planned.

While it’s active, players can complete event-exclusive tasks to earn badges for the three main characters in the Switch game – specifically Alph, Brittany, and Charlie. There’ll also be special Decor Pikmin and a limited-time gift for those who have played Pikmin 3 Deluxe in the past.

The Pikmin 3 Deluxe event for Pikmin Bloom starts on November 15, 2022 at 12 AM local time. More information can be found below.
