Buddy Mission Bond

Nintendo has shared the opening movie for Buddy Mission Bond, its new adventure game for Switch. Watch the video below.

Buddy Mission Bond releases for Switch in Japan on January 21. As of now, there’s no word on a release for the west.

Before Captain Toad got his own game, he was featured in Super Mario 3D World. The Wii U game originally introduced the puzzle mechanics that would later spawn an entirely standalone adventure.

Super Mario 3D World is now making a return on Switch, and those original Captain Toad levels are naturally coming back as well. Now, however, they’ll include a new addition. The official website for Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury confirms that multiplayer is supported. You’ll be able to take on the puzzle stages with up to three other players. On Wii U, they were single-player only.

Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury launches for Switch on February 12.

THQ Nordic and Feld Entertainment today announced Monster Jam Steel Titans 2, the next entry in the off-road racing series. It will launch on March 2.

Here’s an overview of the game:
