In Zelda: Breath of the Wild, the weather and environment around you are more important than ever before. Link goes up against some tough conditions, ranging from the blazing heat to frigid temperatures depending on your location. The weather is also a key element when scaling mountains. When it starts raining, you can bet that climbing will become much more difficult.

Giving players control of the weather was actually something the Zelda: Breath of the Wild team considered, according to Hidemaro Fujibayashi. The game’s director explained to Game Informer this month why it ultimately didn’t make sense in the end: it wouldn’t have been as fun and “would have increased the number of variables in the world.”

Saber Interactive hasn’t had much to say about Shaq-Fu: A Legend Reborn. We did recently come across a retail listing for the game, but we haven’t heard much over the past few months.

Speaking with TechRaptor, Saber Interactive finally explained the situation. Shaq-Fu: A Legend Reborn is apparently complete, and the team is now working around licensing issues. News will be provided soon on the game’s official Indiegogo page. Oh, and the Wii U version has been dropped, which is not much of a surprise.

At Niconico Tokaigi 2018, Off the Hook appeared live for the first time during a special concert. The Squid Sisters also returned for a new performance. If you’re interested, you can watch the full concert below.

GamesIndustry has a new report on Switch sales in the UK. According to the site, 700,000 units have been sold since last year’s launch. GamesIndustry further adds that Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild have sold more than one million copies between them. As far as Wii U goes, Switch has already outsold the system.

While Switch is doing fairly well in the UK, it hasn’t taken off as much as it has in other countries. Unlike other regions, the console hasn’t broken again records there. Piers Harding-Rolls, director of research and analysis at IHS Markit, provides the following as to why that is:
