The Japanese My Hero Academia: One’s Justice website updated today with a new overview of Katsuki Bakugo. Here’s his full profile, courtesy of Gematsu:

– Birthday: April 20
– Height: 172cm
– Quirk: Explosion

Deku’s (Izuku Midoriya) childhood friend. He has strong ambitions, and with his wisdom, strength, sense for battle, and outstanding confidence, he holds the firm belief that he will become the number-one hero. His “Explosion” Quirk enables him to create and explode nitroglycerine-esque sweat from the sweat glands on his palms.

NIS America has announced the return of its annual press event. This year’s show will take place on February 9, and will feature “very special guests” as well as “new announcements”. Oh, and “hands-on access” for the press.

At last year’s event, NIS America announced Culdcept Revolt and RPG Maker Fes for the west. Disgaea 5 Complete was also given a western release date.

Paladins developer Hi-Rez Studios appears to be planning something for Switch. CEO Erez Goren was recently asked if the team intends to release any current or future projects on Switch, to which he responded: “Maybe… maybe yes… yes. But I’m not saying which game!”

At the end of November, it was discovered that updated engine config files for Paladins referenced Switch. However, it’s not necessarily confirmed that this is the game Hi-Rez Studios has in the works. We’ll keep you updated on any future developments.

Based on a listing from the USK, Hello Kitty Kruisers is coming to Switch. It was rated by Germany’s classification system last month.

Hello Kitty Kruisers didn’t exactly receive a great reception when it originally released on Wii U. The fact that it’s planned for a new platform is somewhat noteworthy though. Over the years, its price has gone up dramatically, and finding a copy these days will cost you a pretty penny. If Hello Kitty Kruisers were to be made available on a new platform, it would be interesting to see what would happen to the original game’s value.

Nintendo shared some big news about Switch earlier today. With over 4.8 million units sold in 10 months, it has become the fastest-selling home gaming system of all time, outpacing the Wii.

In its announcement, Nintendo included an interesting note that might be worth bringing up specifically. The company said: “Fans can also expect continued support from major publishers such as EA, Activision, Ubisoft, Capcom, SEGA, Take 2 and Bethesda, plus a growing catalog of quality content from indie developers.”

EA is publishing Fe on Switch soon, but it’s possible that they could bring more games to the console – like this year’s FIFA. Ubisoft hasn’t announced anything new as of late, but Steep is apparently still happening. Capcom has quite a bit on the way between Mega Man 11, past Mega Man releases, and the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection. SEGA has at least Valkyria Chronicles 4 planned. Take-Two could bring more NBA 2K and WWE 2K titles to Switch, with perhaps more from its subsidiary Rockstar. Bethesda has Wolfenstein II in the pipeline. Actvision is the main mystery here, as the company has been absent since launching Skylanders Imaginators nearly a year ago.

Nintendo has just announced a new major sales milestone for Switch.

According to the company’s own internal sales figures, since launching about ten months ago, the console has sold over 4.8 million units in the United States. That means it is now the fastest-selling home gaming system of all time in the country. The previous record holder was Wii, which sold over 4 million units during the same timeframe.

Metacritic has a new piece looking at the highest-rated games of 2017. Zelda: Breath of the Wild took the top spot across all platforms, just edging out Super Mario Odyssey by less than 0.3%.
