It looks as though Target is listing Monopoly for the Nintendo Switch as releasing on October 31st. Seeing as it releases in Japan on November 9th this honestly doesn’t seem like too much of a stretch. However, it won’t be a for sure thing until we get an actual confirmation from Ubisoft themselves.


It’s time for the latest Famitsu‘s most wanted games chart. Super Mario Odyssey moves up back a spot, with Pokemon Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon and Xenoblade Chronicles 2 maintaining their positions.

Head past the break for the full chart. All votes were cast between September 14 and September 20.

Since it’s October, that can only mean one thing: Super Mario Odyssey launches this month. Nintendo is celebrating with some special images.

We have a new wallpaper for the game above (primarily intended for smartphones). We also have the same image as a calendar below.


Nintendo published a new video highlighting the sorts of kingdoms and costumes you’ll encounter during your journey in Super Mario Odyssey. Check it out below.

Remember the N64 kid? We may now have the 2017 version of that.

Recently, Erick Garcia gifted his son a N64 as a birthday present. Google Home was used to lead him to the background where a Switch was hidden away. The present was quickly taken inside and unwrapped. To say that Garcia’s kid was happy with the present would be an understatement.

Below are the latest Nintendo products that can be currently pre-ordered at retailers:

At Milan Games Week earlier today, Nintendo held a live stream and showed off the latest Xenoblade Chronicles 2 footage. It’s the same area from Gamescom, but running on the latest build. Watch the footage below.

The third Japanese Splatfest will be kicking off in Splatoon 2 soon. Players are being asked about what they have self-confidence in: power or stamina. The Splatfest will be held next weekend.

North America is the only region where a third Splatfest hasn’t been announced. In Europe, a toilet roll-themed event will be held next weekend.


We reported on one glitch in the Switch version of FIFA 18 earlier today in which player faces are removed, replacing them with a checkerboard design instead. That’s not the only strange bug in the game.

Below we have a look at another odd glitch, and it might be even more bizarre. Player models are completely absent and take on a dark, block-like appearance. This one seems to be a rare occurrence, so it’s something most players may not come across.
