During the Wii U era, Camelot came out with Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash for Wii U. The studio, in collaboration with Nintendo, is now about to release Mario Tennis Aces for Switch. Get a look at how the two games compare below.

Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition made it to the west a few weeks ago. Digital Foundry took a closer look at the game from a technical perspective, and compared it to the Wii U original and New 3DS version in a video published today.

As far as resolution is concerned, Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition is 1080p when docked. For the Wii U and New 3DS versions, 30 frames per second was the target. The new Switch version attempts to hit 60 FPS, but there are unfortunately many significant dips. Digital Foundry adds that 60 FPS is rarely met, though it’s still the better experience.

Nintendo’s maintenance schedule has received its latest update. All of the company’s platforms will be impacted as well as Minecraft for Switch across three different sessions.

The current schedule is as follows:

It’s the start of a new month, which means new rewards just got added to My Nintendo in Europe.

We’re approaching the 1-year anniversary of ARMS, and Nintendo is celebrating that by offering a total of six ARMS-themed PC and mobile wallpapers featuring the game’s characters. They cost 50 Platinum Points each and will be available until December 1st, 2018.

Also on offer is a new 3DS home menu theme: Animal Crossing: Summer Fun. It costs 20 Gold Points and will be available until September 1st, 2018.

Finally, there are a total of four new 3DS and Wii U software discounts on offer:

In 2014, Ubisoft mentioned that it had been sitting on a Wii U game for several months. It was completely finished, and was just a matter of when it would release.

Ultimately, Ubisoft chose not to publish the title. After it was clarified that the game was primarily aimed at “families and friends”, it was never officially announced. Footage did end up leaking a year later in February 2015 after it was outed as Know Your Friends.

DidYouKnowGaming? and Liam Robertson have now taken a closer look at Know Your Friends, which did not ship primarily due to slow Wii U sales. Watch the full report below.
