Posted on 1 year ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 24 Comments | 0 Likes
This week’s ARMS update is going to be pretty extensive. In addition to adding Max Brass, his ARMS, and a new stage, a new versus mode is also incoming.
Producer Kosuke Yabuki spoke about the new mode with Eurogamer:
“I can talk about it a little bit now – Max Brass is the main part of tomorrow’s update, but there is a new versus mode where in a fight between two or three players there’s a Hedlok mask players battle over, and when you get the mask your own character can turn into Hedlok. If one player turns into Hedlok it’ll be up to the other players to take him down. The Hedlok mode won’t just be available in one v one versus modes – it’ll be available online and in every multiplayer mode.”

Splatoon 2: meal tickets can be obtained in Hero Mode and Salmon Run
Posted on 1 year ago by Matt(@OnePunchMaz) in News, Switch | 1 Comment | 0 Likes
If you’ve played around with the Splatoon 2: Splatfest World Premiere demo a bit, you might have stumbled upon the food truck run by Crusty Sean. You can buy different types of food there which gives you a variety of bonuses, such as increased experience earned in multiplayer battles. However, you can’t buy this food with money – instead, you need meal tickets. In the Splatfest World Premiere demo, it’s not really clear how to obtain these tickets. The Splatoon Twitter account has now revealed they can be gotten in Hero Mode and in Salmon Run. Like the special pieces of gear that can only be obtained in Salmon Run, this is another example of how the various modes interact with each other and how rewards earned in one of them can help you in another.

A new update has landed on the Japanese Twitter account for Super Mario Odyssey. This time around, we’re shown one of the enemies from Luncheon Kingdom. It was featured in the game’s original trailer.
What we have is a new look at the Cook Bird (name may differ in the final version). It’s a food-loving animal as the name suggests. Also, it looks like it’s busy preparing stew for Bowser’s wedding ceremony.
