We’ve seen all sorts of retailer pages and other listings pointing to a Switch version of This Is the Police. Thanks to a listing on the eShop, it’s now official.

THQ Nordic will be bringing This Is the Police to Switch… at some point. A release date is not provided no the eShop page. Still, it’s nice to have an absolute confirmation that it’s happening.

Here’s a brief overview of This Is the Police:

This Is the Police is a strategy/adventure game set in a city spiraling the drain. Taking the role of gritty Police Chief Jack Boyd, you’ll dive into a deep story of crime and intrigue. Will Jack reach his retirement with a nice stack of bills, or will he end up broken… or worse?

The wedding theme in Super Mario Odyssey is a big aspect of the game. Bowser has kidnapped Princess Peach once again and intends to marry her. Mario, Bowser, and Peach will all appear in wedding attire, and Nintendo is even making amiibo of each character.

On the official Twitter account, Nintendo provided a closer look at the bouquet Peach is holding in the trailer from E3. Along with Pirhana Plants, the bouquet holds flowers taken from the Wooded Kingdom.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 has reached a major milestone in its development. Music production is now complete, according to composer Yasunori Mitsuda.

Mitsuda tweeted out the news with a celebratory picture:

Nintendo has started distribution of another update for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Players with access to the game can download version 1.2.1.
