We heard about Super Mario Maker’s first update in Japan earlier today. If you missed it, you can read up on the details here.

It appears that this update is live in Europe, and it will be up in North America tomorrow as well (if it’s not available already). We now know that the size comes in at around 175MB.


Yacht Club Games has revealed that Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows will launch on September 17. This applies to both Wii U and 3DS, and it’s apparently for all regions where the game is available.

Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows adds Plague Knight’s adventure. Additionally, players can take on the new Challenge Mode.

You’ll need to clear the game as Shovel Knight before Plague Knight’s campaign unlocks. However, developer Yacht Club Games did mention in a blog update today that a special code will be shared to unlock it from the get-go.

On Twitter, UFO Crash Games shared news about plans for a FullBlast patch. The upcoming update will address “some minor bugs” as well as glitches.

UFO Crash Games said in its Twitter message:

It’s not yet known when the update will be available, but it’s likely coming soon.


Another update is coming soon to Elliot Quest. Version 1.2.6 could be out next week, so long as Nintendo approves it.

This new Elliot Quest update will address more bugs. Additionally, it will unlock some Miiverse stamps based on save data.

PlayEveryWare posted the following news on Miiverse:

In a separate post, the company added the following:

I also want to thank all of Miiverse community for being patient and understanding, while sharing with us the issues that are surely frustrating you.

What happened was that we made a whole bunch of performance optimizations alongside our Miiverse Journal feature update. Unfortunately one of the optimizations had some unintended, but serious consequences. We also wanted to address the feedback we were getting about players wanting to have Stamps unlocked based on their save data. Along with fixing bugs that were my fault, I really want to be sure we are adding in features that you the community find important!

We really hope this will be the final update for Elliot Quest on Wii U, but of course we will continue to support the game by watching Miiverse and elsewhere to see if players find any further issues or have any additional feature requests for the game!


Polygon has posted additional footage from Shovel Knight’s free expansion known as “Plague of Shadows”. You can watch the new video below.

Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Tipping Stars has received a small update, bumping the game up to version 1.0.1. As expected, the patch is pretty small in nature. The update only addresses an issue uploading particular levels to Miiverse on 3DS.



At PAX Prime 2015, Inti Creates said that Azure Striker Gunvolt would be getting a Japanese Voice Mode. This will be added to the 3DS game via an update at some point in the future.

On its official website, Inti Creates has shared more details about the mode. Here’s the lowdown straight from the studio:

* The entire script of the game has been re-translated to fit with the original Japanese voices. This means that the script is how it would be in the Japanese version, but translated into English. Japanese references to things like takoyaki and tokusatsu shows, just to name a few, are kept as-is.

* All of the dialogue from the Japanese version is intact in this mode, from the mid-stage conversations to all of your chats with Joule.

* Despite the fact that the presence of mid-stage conversations with English text are one of the main reasons for having this mode, you can still disable/enable these at any time with the push of a button.

* To play the game in Japanese Voice Mode, select it from the Language Settings menu before starting the game.

Following a period maintenance period, Splatoon’s new patch is now available. Version 2.1.0 can be applied to the game as of now.

597MB is required for today’s Splatoon download. If you need a refresh on the update, head past the break for the patch notes.
