Square Enix reported its financial results today. Along with that, a results briefing was held where the company talked about Switch and more.
As far as support goes, Square Enix won’t rule out any IPs for Switch. Those include new ones, currently active ones, and ones that aren’t active at the moment. While other platforms would probably receive these games as well due to Square Enix’s multiplatform strategy, they would aggressively make titles for Switch.

Zelda: Breath of the Wild Switch item distribution (11/8/17)
Posted on 1 year ago by Joshua in News, Switch | 0 comments
It’s basically tradition at this point: Nintendo continues to give out weekly free ingame items for Breath of the Wild on Switch. Just head to your news page and make sure you’re subscribed to the Zelda channel!
This week, the game’s director Hidemaro Fubuyashi has some armor-enhancing items for us. These are as listed here: Yellow Chuchu Jelly (x3) and Electric Keese Wing (x3).
The director pairs the items with a helpful tip on how to use them: “Levelling up the Rubber Armor set twice will give it the ‘Shockproof’ effect.” It’s implied that the electrifying items will, when brought to a great fairy fountain, help in upgrading the Rubber Armor set.
Stay tuned for more Breath of the Wild distributions.

Nintendo might be teasing a new ARMS stage

Lola Pop, the last big ARMS character, was added to the game in mid-September. The company could be gearing up for the next fighter and stage.
The image above was posted to the Japanese ARMS Twitter account just a short while ago. The message itself doesn’t really say anything too interesting, but it’s the image that we’re more interested in. This forest / ruins area could be a sign of what’s to come for ARMS.
We thought that Nintendo was teasing a new ARMS stage in August. Eventually, as we know, Lola Pop made it into ARMS along with Via Dolce.

Zelda: Breath of the Wild – The Champions’ Ballad DLC slated for December
It’s been somewhat of a mystery as to when The Champions’ Ballad DLC for Zelda: Breath of the Wild will be launching. The only concrete window Nintendo has given is “Holiday 2017”.
The European Switch eShop seems to have a clearer answer. On a listing for the DLC, Nintendo says that The Champions’ Ballad is planned for December.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s new DLC pack features a new dungeon, an original story, and more new challenges. Hopefully we’ll be getting more details in the weeks ahead.
