Sumo Digital introduced a new Snake Pass update late last month. It was a pretty substantial one, adding in Time Trials and leaderboards on Switch. However, that pesky rumble bug was brought back with the patch.

On the bright side, Sumo has been quick to address the situation. Another Snake Pass update is now available, bringing the game to version 1.2.1. You should notice that the rumble issues have once again been addressed.

Implosion – Never Lose Hope is receiving a worldwide release on the Switch eShop this week. System owners in all regions will be able to purchase the game on July 6. Pricing is set at $11.99 / €11.99 / 1,200 yen.

English, Chinese, and Japanese will be supported along with Japanese voice acting. The standard Joy-Con and Pro Controller can be used in the game.

Two months ago, we reported that Splatoon 2 will have a file size of 5.5 GB, based off of a listing on Amazon Japan. Today, the Splatoon 2 page on the European Switch eShop was updated, and it now displays a file size of 3.1 GB. It’s safe to assume that this size is probably more accurate than the one on Amazon. It’s unlikely that language differences account for that much of a difference so Nintendo probably managed to compress the game’s files quite a lot in the last two months.

Celeste, the newest game from TowerFall creator Matt Makes Games, was originally targeted for Switch’s launch window. Unfortunately, it’s now targeted for January 2018 – though there’s good reason for that.

Rather than the initial goal of including 200-300 levels, Celeste will now have 500 or potentially 600 when all is said and done. Additionally, Celeste’s narrative has taken a greater focus, and developer Matt Thorson says each one of the chapters “has big ambitious ideas that we went for despite feeling the whole time like we might not be able to pull them off, before totally pulling them off.”

Thorson adds that “releasing this game sooner than January would be a huge mistake. It deserves room to breathe and become everything it can be, and fortunately we can afford to give it that space. We need to know that we took it as far as we could.”

Thorson has more on Celeste’s release date situation here.
