Nintendo has unveiled a new website for Super Nintendo World a month before the theme park’s opening at Universal Studios Japan.

The website contains an overview of several attractions and park features, including Mario Kart: Koopa’s Challenge, Yoshi’s Adventure, interactive elements, the Power-Up Band, restaurants, and merchandise available for purchase.

A new dungeon crawling 3D RPG will be arriving on Switch in Japan from Acquire. Check out the details below as translated by Gematsu:

Dungeons and monsters are depicted in monotone by Japanese-style ink brush painting. Gameplay systems are said to be a return to the roots of hack-and-slash.

Acquire plans to first release free version of Zangetsu no Sakyuu that users can play to some extent. If they enjoy it, they can then purchase the full version.
