Monolith Soft tends to have a lot of work on its hands. Of course, the studio is well-known for its Xenoblade series. It also goes out of its way to help Nintendo on certain projects like Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Monolith Soft definitely knows how to balance different games, and that experience certainly played a role over the past few years. Most recently, the developer completed Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition, which launches on May 29. Director Tetsuya Takahashi revealed in this week’s issue of Famitsu that planning started at the end of 2017. Also, since the studio was also making the Torna expansion for Xenoblade Chronicles 2 in addition to a new project, they were at one point “working on three different projects simultaneously and had to organize our 1st Production members between the three titles.”

Here’s the full excerpt from Famitsu, as translated by Nintendo Everything’s Oni_Dino:

The official Paper Mario: The Origami King website has updated with a look at the battle system in English. We have the clip below.

Paper Mario: The Origami King is due out for Switch on July 17.

As part of an update towards the end of April, Redd was added to Animal Crossing: New Horizons. The character shows up on a boat, and players can purchase rare items and works of art from Jolly Redd’s Treasure Trawler.

The thing about Redd’s shop is that both fake and real art are up for grabs. But how exactly does the game determine what will appear in-game? New information from reliable dataminer Ninji reveals the inner workings.

GameStop has announced an exclusive pre-order bonus for Paper Mario: The Origami King. By reserving the game, you’ll receive the pin set pictured above.

No Brakes Games, Curve Digital and d3t Ltd today revealed that the multiplayer platformer Human: Fall Flat will see a new level added to the main game for free.

The stage, known as “Factory”, was the joint-winner of 2019’s Human: Fall Flat Worldwide Workshop competition, “which challenged members of the community to design levels for the quirky indie hit for a chance to win $10,000 USD and get their creation featured in the main game’s campaign.” In it, players will be “exploring a working factory dominated by giant clunking gears, perilous pitfalls and crane puzzles.”

Warner Bros. and NetherRealm Studios have shared a pair of gameplay videos for Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath, which feature RoboCop vs. Terminator. We have the footage below.

Last year, 11 bit studios and Digital Sun introduced the new Between Dimensions DLC for Moonlighter on PC. That new content is finally making its way to consoles next week, including Switch.

Between Dimensions expands the shopkeeping RPG with a new interdimensional dungeon. Meanwhile, current dungeons with add new creatures, weapons, armors, shop items, and rings.

Here’s a full rundown of the update plus a trailer:

Splatfests were thought to be done in Splatoon 2, but last month, Nintendo announced that they would be making a return with one special event. The topic of mayonnaise vs. ketchup has come back again after mayo won the first time around. As is tradition for Splatfests, Nintendo has created a unique piece of art, which we have above.

The mayonnaise vs. ketchup Splatfest rematch will be held in Splatoon 2 this weekend.



This week’s issue of Famitsu contains an interview with Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition director Tetsuya Takahashi. In the magazine, it’s mentioned that the new Future Connected takes 10-12 hours to complete the story, though side content can raise that total to 20 hours.

Takahashi said that it would have been possible to extend the length of Future Connected had it been made DLC. However, the development of new titles would be affected if too many resources were used.
