Switch

The latest update is now available for both the Switch and the Wii U version of Minecraft. Here are the patch notes:

It’s the end of the week, which means we’re getting another new weapon in Splatoon (in addition to the return of Blackbelly Skatepark). The Gold Dynamo Roller has the same stats as the regular Dynamo Roller. It comes with the Splat Bomb sub-weapon and the Ink Armor special. It’ll be available in Japan and Australia tomorrow around noon, early in the morning in Europe and later tonight in North America.

Read what Reggie had to say below. You can find the full article on Kotaku here.

Switch stock has been a big issue since the system launched earlier this year. It has undoubtedly improved, but it’s still not quite where it needs to be. In places like Japan, the situation is still very frustrating with continued lotteries just for an opportunity to buy a Switch.

In an interview with The Verge, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime commented on Switch’s supply situation once again. Being unable to meet demand is something he’s not happy with, and he says Nintendo is “working hard to satisfy as much demand as possible.”

Reggie stated:

Earlier in the month, SEGA started the “Moment of Truth” prequel comic for Sonic Forces. The third issue was published today on Sonic’s official Twitter account. All of the pages can be found below.
