Atlus has released the latest daily demon video for Shin Megami Tensei V featuring the demon Orobas. Take a look with the video below.

As part of Switch version 12.1.0, it turns out that the Joy-Con can also be updated.

This can be done by accessing the system settings. Go to the “Controllers and Settings” tab and scroll down to “Update Controllers”. Joy-Con that are connected should then be updated. Unfortunately, Nintendo has never made it clear what the process actually does.

Switch version 12.1.0 dropped a short while ago. You can read about the system update here.

Thanks to Cameron and Bernardo N for the tip.

There have been fairly regular reports claiming that Nintendo has a new Switch model in the works, but at least thus far, nothing has materialized. The latest rumor came from Bloomberg, with the outlet claiming at the end of May that a reveal could have taken place right before E3 2021. Of course, that didn’t happen in the end.

The topic of a new Switch model did come up during Nintendo’s Annual General Meeting of Shareholders last week. President Shuntaro Furukawa was asked about these reports, to which he stated:


Ring Fit Adventure has undoubtedly been one of Nintendo’s breakout hits of the Switch era. Not only has the title generated global interest, but it has also sold over seven million copies. It makes sense then that many are hoping that there will be more to come from the concept.

During Nintendo’s 81st Annual General Meeting of Shareholders, an investor actually asked if there are plans for a sequel. President Shuntaro Furukawa responded, and did that the company “would like to take various initiatives so many people continue to play this title.”
