Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Another piece of significant information has been reported stemming from the April 2017 NPD report. According to Mat Piscatella, an analyst for the company, Mario Kart is the all-time best-selling racing franchise in the U.S.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe was the best-selling game in the U.S. last month despite being on the market for just two days. In that short period, over 460,000 physical units sold. With digital sales included, the total exceeds 550,000 units.


One Piece: Unlimited World Red Deluxe Edition was confirmed for Europe earlier this week. Now we can say the same for North America as well.

Like in Europe, One Piece: Unlimited World Red Deluxe Edition will be out sometime in September. However, it’ll be a digital only title in the states. The good news is that Switch is region free, so if you’re interested in a physical version, you can import it from Europe.

The latest episode of Capcom TV was hosted this week. This new episode contained footage of Ultra Street Fighter II and Monster Hunter XX while also showcasing Megami Meguri’s update. View the full recording below.

The three new characters announced this week – Kid Cobra, Byte & Barq, and Twintelle – have been left out.
