Splatoon 2 just added in Snapper Canal as its newest map. Take a look at some footage of the stage below.

Splatoon 2’s third European Splatfest is being hosted this weekend. To celebrate, Nintendo has shared some new art. We have it above.

Interestingly enough, the new Splatfest is all about toilet paper. Players are asked to choose between the position they prefer the toilet roll to be hanging.

The action MMO World of Tanks is available on most major platforms. You can find it on PC and almost all current consoles. However, there’s one system that the game has yet to reach – that being Switch of course.

Wargaming doesn’t seem to be against the possibility of releasing its game on Nintendo’s console. Speaking about the chances of a Switch version with GamesTM, senior designer Darold Hig suggested that it all comes down to the install base. If the install base is high enough, then it will make sense for the team to invest in a Switch version.

As Hig explained:

Sprite announced today that its visual novel Aokana: Four Rhythm Across the Blue is releasing for Switch in Japan on March 29. A trailer can be found below.

Aokana: Four Rhythm Across the Blue features support for full HD resolution when playing on the TV. Those who pick up the game at launch will receive a special-drawn case jacket.

Update: Nintendo released an English version of the trailer. It’s essentially the same video, just with English text and no voice-over.


Original: Nintendo just released a new Japanese introduction trailer for Super Mario Odyssey. Watch it below.
