title update

Art of Balance has been updated to version 1.01 in North America, developer Shin’en has confirmed. The same patch will be out in Europe shortly as well.

Here’s the update news straight from Shin’en:


TOO DX has released a first update for Sportsball – version 1.0.01. The patch makes a few changes and addresses several bugs.

Read on below for the full update notes.


  • Changed Sportsbrawl Pro rules to stock with bombs.
  • Controllers inactive for 1 minute will no longer rumble until a button is hit again.
  • Added a rumble on spawn
  • Changed level background graphics
  • Players must now hold the + button to pause matches

Bug Fixes:

  • Fixed an issue where matches would restart twice in Sportsbrawl when a tackle happened by the winning team after victory.
  • Fixed memory leaks on exiting the match scene.
  • Fixed an issue where match number would not save to the replay data, displaying match # 0 on the results screen for all replays.
  • Fixed an issue with replays where saved object references were not correctly loaded. This resulted in free lances on moving platforms not syncing movement.
  • Fixed a soft lock issue when saving replays without enough space left in the common block. Now the replay will fail to save and an error message will be displayed.
  • Fixed an issue where after playing a 60 minute match and watching the whole replay, loading another replay may cause a crash.
  • Adjusted the timing of the intro animation to sync up the intro music

Nintendo has updated the official Mario Kart 8 website with first details regarding the game’s amiibo functionality.

According to the site, players will be able to dress their Mii characters in racing suits based on the different looks of the amiibo characters. The feature will be possible with an update scheduled to be released November 13 – next Thursday.

The Mario Kart 8 amiibo page seems to be a bit broken at the moment, so it’s possible that this information wasn’t intended to be revealed just yet. Maybe we’ll see an official announcement during tomorrow’s Nintendo Direct!
