WWE 2K18 is partnering with KFC in a somewhat strange way. In the game, players will be able to create a custom character based on Colonel Sanders. Sanders, of course, is the founder of the fast food chain restaurant and is essentially the official mascot.

Remember the N64 kid? We may now have the 2017 version of that.

Recently, Erick Garcia gifted his son a N64 as a birthday present. Google Home was used to lead him to the background where a Switch was hidden away. The present was quickly taken inside and unwrapped. To say that Garcia’s kid was happy with the present would be an understatement.

On its Japanese website, Nintendo has character profiles for various characters in the Mario franchise. One change in particular is earning a great deal of attention.

This is Nintendo’s character description for Mario:


Beginning this fall, gamers can enter codes found in specially marked packages of Post cereals for a chance to win one of 500 Nintendo Switch Prize Packs. Along with a Switch system, winners will receive Super Mario Odyssey.

Codes will be spread across 20 million Post Consumer Brand cereal boxes such as Honey Bunches of Oats, Grape Nuts, Honeycomb, Golden Crisp, and Alpha-Bits. Malt-O-Meal cereals including Honey Graham Toasters, Coco Roos, and Marshmallow Mateys will have codes as well.

Super Mario Odyssey director Yoshiaki Koizumi weighed in on the subject during a Reddit AMA a couple of months ago. He personally does not believe that a hot dog counts as a sandwich.

This whole thing is a bit silly, we admit. But it’s a somewhat interesting use of the Switch’s news feature. Nintendo added in options to send feedback with “Great” or “Oh” options following a firmware update, and we’re sort of seeing it be put to use now.

Marie is your new guide in Splatoon 2’s single-player mode. When you’re not battling Octarians in the various levels, you can catch up with her for a quick chat. But be warned: she’ll get annoyed with you if you keep pestering you. Oh, and Marie isn’t a fan of pineapple pizza, it seems.
