Nintendo will release a new update for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the company has announced. Specifics of the patch have not yet been detailed. Version 1.2.0 was just confirmed via the in-game notice system.

Nintendo cautions that replays created with the current version will not be compatible. If you’d like to preserve them, you can convert them to videos by accessing the replay data option in the Vault mode.

We’ll have the patch notes when the update goes live, which should happen within the next week.

Thanks to KobobKC for the tip.

Curve Digital has announced that a new “Dark” level for Human: Fall Flat is coming to Switch in 2019. A specific date has yet to be confirmed.

Here’s a brief overview and trailer for the DLC:

Salt and Sanctuary was announced for physical release back during the summer. Originally, it was planned to be out at the end of October. The game would eventually miss that target, but has now launched today.

Salt and Sanctuary: Drowned Tome includes the cartridge, a full manual, a double-sided poster featuring the Sodden Knight on one side and a hand-drawn world map of the island on the other, and a download code for the Salt and Sanctuary original soundtrack. Pricing is set at $29.99.
