In October, developer CyberConnect2 somewhat hinted at the possibility of Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 coming to Nintendo Switch. Now, that possibility has become a reality: the latest issue of Weekly Jump has revealed that Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 Road to Boruto (an updated re-release) will be released on Nintendo Switch on April 23, 2020. So far, only a release in Japan has been confirmed, but a Western release is fairly likely.

The Switch version is also getting some new downloadable content alongside the other versions of the game: two new characters will be playable in Momoshiki and Kinshiki and there will also be new Boruto-era costumes for eleven characters.

Famitsu announced today that an updated version of Winning Post 9, Koei Tecmo’s horse racing simulation game, will be coming to Nintendo Switch next year. Called Winning Post 9 2020, it’ll feature several improvements and some new content. The new features are as follows (credit goes to Gematsu for the translation):

  • Revival of the marriage and descendant succession systems.
  • Improvements to bond commands (can be executed from the racehorse screen, choose what you like from several utilities, etc.).
  • No more randomness in the system of meeting new connections (you can make connections at events, and there are also bond commands that enable you to meet new connections).
  • You can establish a club.
  • Implementation of a future scenario that starts in 2021.
  • Ability to transfer save data from Winning Post 9.
  • If you have save data from Winning Post 8 on your system, you can get special bonuses.
  • Noel Himeka added as a secretary, who also has several different costumes depending on the season:

The game will be released in March 2020 in Japan. A Western release hasn’t been announced yet and seems fairly unlikely, given past precedent with this series.

Ring Fit Adventure has proven to be a bit of a phenomenon, especially in Japan. The game has been consistently selling in the 5-digit figures every week since its release with barely a drop-off, which is impressive since typically most games send to sell the most on release date, then drop off fairly quickly. Sales for Ring Fit Adventure could have been even higher though, as there have been multiple reports of stock shortages in many stores in Japan. Today, Nintendo has acknowledged and apologized for these stock shortages. The company promises to ship more copies each week, and will increase shipment numbers towards the end of the year.
