Paper Mario: The Origami King is available now on Switch.

Nintendo and Intelligent Systems have prepared a trailer for the latest summoning event in Fire Emblem Heroes known as A New Future. We have it below.

A New Future features Dimitri, Claude, Lysithea, and Edelgard from Fire Emblem: Three Houses. A new story chapter is also planned.

As revealed by the latest NPD report published today, Paper Mario: The Origami King came in at #3 on the July chart. That’s not bad at all, especially considering it released during the middle of the month.

We now have some additional insight into Paper Mario’s performance in the United States. According to the NPD, Paper Mario: The Origami King managed to set a new launch month sales record for a Paper Mario title. Physical launch month dollar sales more than doubled those of Super Paper Mario. Given that digital sales aren’t factored in here, that makes this statistic even more notable.


Fire Emblem Heroes is currently hosting multiple events.

First, another single-day Bound Hero Battle featuring Innes & Eirika is now live. Paired with this is a single-day 5-star Summoning Focus featuring Innes: Regal Strategician, Eirika: Restoration Lady, and Ephraim: Sacred Twin Lord. Make sure not to miss it!

Additionally, the latest Røkkr Sieges event is now being hosted:

The first set of battles and new stages are live now from August 14 to August 16.
Battle 2 and its corresponding stages are live from August 16 to August 18.
And Battle 3 is live from August 18 to August 20.
