Luigi’s Mansion 3

Nintendo has issued a new update for Luigi’s Mansion 3. The latest patch is version 1.2.1.

According to Nintendo, the main purpose of the update is to address an issue in which some achievements wouldn’t unlock. There are also the usual vague fixes and improvements.

The Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences (AIAS) has announced the finalists for its 23rd Annual D.I.C.E. Awards. The D.I.C.E. Awards recognizes outstanding achievement in video game development with categories focusing on character and story as well as the technical side.

Quite a few Switch games have been nominated, including Untitled Goose Game for “Outstanding Achievement in Character” and Luigi’s Mansion 3 for “Outstanding Achievement in Animation.” The D.I.C.E. Awards also announce Game of the Year categories and both Luigi’s Mansion 3 and The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening are nominated for “Adventure Game of the Year.”

More Switch games make the list, so make sure to check the full catalog below.

Hello my coffee-flavored Gooigis. This week on NEP, we’re looking back on our predictions of 2019 and seeing what we got right, wrong, and what was totally unexpected. Luigi’s Mansion 3, Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Pokemon Sword and Shield and more–it’s funny how much our perspectives changed in under one year.

Luigi’s Mansion 3 is selling pretty well in the UK – perhaps better than one would expect. In the previous week, sales were actually up 49 percent.

Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield have been top sellers on Switch during the holiday season. However, Luigi’s Mansion 3 has actually sold more copies than a number of other top titles, including New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, Super Mario Maker 2 and The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening. GamesIndustry also reports that Luigi’s Mansion 3 “has far exceeded previous games in the franchise”.

Hello my 8-bit and 16-bit beauties. This week on NEP, we accidentally pitch our ideas for the next Luigi’s Mansion game (and the next) in a fervor of excitement. Then, Oni Dino is excited about Heroland while Galen critiques Bioware’s Anthem. Oni Dino goes on to talk his love for Breath of Fire II and Galen muses on the “Zelda II Maker” update we received in Super Mario Maker 2, and what Maker could be next. We then read some listener mail leading into next week’s The Game Awards, a New Year Nintendo Direct and Super Mario Sunshine… 2?

Hello my happy helpers and fortune cookies! This week on NEP, Oni Dino and Galen are talking The Game Awards, the industry and mobile monetization schemes. We chat about the nominees, snubs, predictions for Nintendo and past instances—new Smash DLC fighter? Metroid? Bayonetta? Who knows! Let’s keep it logical, though.
Then we tackle Animal Crossing Pocket Camp getting a subscription service with a very opinionated argument over if free-to-play games like these should even be considered games. We finish things off with some Pokemon talk on the new designs, and the Gizmodo situation in our listener mail segment.
