Puyo Puyo Tetris’ western launch is nearly here, as SEGA is readying the game for tomorrow. Get a look at an hour of footage below.

Cube Creator DX is only a 3DS title for now. Arc System Works will be bringing the title to Japan at the end of this week.

Even though Cube Creator DX has only been made for 3DS, a Switch version could be in the cards. Kodomo Shimbun caught up with director Mr. Shoji, who indicated that it’s under consideration. It’s far from an announcement of course, but with Arc System Works already supporting Nintendo’s new platform, it’d hardly be a shock if it were to happen.

Differently-colored costumes for characters are a staple in fighting games and ARMS will be no exception. The official ARMS Twitter account revealed the pink-colored Ninjara seen above. Obviously, other characters will also have different color variations available.

The next weapon showcase video was also released – take a look at the Chakram weapon:

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is largely based on the Wii U game, but Nintendo did implement several new additions and small changes. For instance, for this version, Nintendo included a few new title screens – such as the one included above. Who would have thought that we’d see Link on the title screen of a Mario Kart game?

Below are a few more snapshots:

Amazon may have more Switch stock in the near future. In a customer support chat exchange sent in by reader RobinWithN, the representative noted that new stock will be showing up “from the first week of May.” Regular consumers and Prime members will apprently be able to place orders. Of course, we do have to take this with a grain of salt as it doesn’t come from an official Amazon announcement, so keep that in mind.

Various retailers have been gradually restocking Switch over the past few weeks. However, Amazon hasn’t really had any units available in about a month. Based on today’s information, hopefully that will be changing soon.

Thanks to RobinWithN for the tip.
