Earlier today we wrote a post that the Luigi’s Balloon World update for Super Mario Odyssey would be out later this week. Well wait no longer because it is out now to download!

Below we have also included the patch notes that Nintendo put out on the new Super Mario Odyssey update.

Another round of data is in from this month’s NPD report. Along with the best-sellers on Switch and 3DS specifically for the month of January, we also have a list of the games that have sold the best over the past twelve months. Continue on below for the full results.

NPD Group has released a listing of the top twenty best-selling games in the U.S. for the month of January 2018. The results can be found below.

Switch sold the most units in the United States out of all hardware platforms last month, according to The NPD Group. PlayStation 4 was the top system in terms of dollar sales, but only 3% separated Switch, PS4, and Xbox One.

Overall, the gaming industry experienced a very strong month in January. Hardware dollar sales of $278 million “is the highest level achieved since the $323 million sold in January 2011,” NPD analyst Mat confirms. “Over one million units of hardware sold in January 2018, also the highest tally since January 2011.”

In December, Nintendo said that 3DS had its best month in the US since December 2014. Those strong results continued into January. NPD says that in terms of hardware dollar sales, last month was the 3DS’ best January since 2014.

Interestingly, no 3DS games made it into NPD’s top 20 software list for the month. However, Pokemon Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon were the first and second best-selling titles in January. Despite releasing in 2011, Mario Kart 7 placed #3 in the 3DS chart.

Luigi’s Balloon World was announced for Super Mario Odyssey in January. When it was revealed, Nintendo mentioned that the feature would be added through a free update this month. February is almost over, but it looks like Nintendo will be holding true to its promise.

Nintendo Australia has a new post on its website dated for February 23, indicating that the update is now live. Obviously that isn’t the case as that day has yet to actually pass. Still, this should mean the update will be out before the end of the week.

Aside from Luigi’s Balloon World, the patch will include Sunshine, Musician, and Knight Armor outfits that will be available soon after players complete the main story. Coin and Neon are also the only new Snapshot Mode filters. You can see this below.

Once you’ve pre-loaded a game from the eShop, you’re locked in to the purchase. There’s no way to cancel the pre-order prior to release. Because of this, Nintendo is now facing heat from the Norwegian Consumer Council.

PressFire obtained a letter sent to Nintendo in which the Council asks for clarification on how to cancel digital pre-orders or create a way to do so as soon as possible. As Polygon notes, Nintendo’s current policy goes against the 2011 Consumer Rights Directive that grants “a higher level of protection for consumers … in their own country or elsewhere in the EU.”

Even before we truly knew what Switch was, rumors have persisted about Smash Bros. appearing on the new platform by featuring content from the games on Wii U and 3DS. Speculation has now picked up once again.

Emily Rogers, who has been both spot on and occasionally off the mark with Nintendo rumors, claims that a Smash Bros. games will be announced and released for Switch later this year. Rogers further says that it will include new content as well as re-worked content from the Wii U and 3DS games.

Rogers isn’t sure as to how Nintendo will brand the game. It’s possible that it could be a deluxe edition, some sort of sequel, or a full sequel.

Trailblazers announced for Switch

Posted on 3 days ago by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 0 comments | 0 Likes

Rising Star Games and Supergonk have announced Trailblazers, a new co-operative racing game. It’s heading to Switch this spring.

Trailblazers involves painting the track, boosting on your color, and working as a team to win. Online play and local multiplayer are supported.

Supergonk was formed by industry veterans with over ten years of experience at studios such as Codemasters, Bizarre Creations and Lionhead. The studio “creates high-quality indie racing titles, and prides itself on creating innovative new experiences and never-before-seen game mechanics.”

When Shining Resonance Refrain was announced for Japan a few months ago, SEGA only intended to put the game on PlayStation 4. Today though, the game has been confirmed for western localization, and it’s coming to new platforms – including Switch.

Shining Resonance is an RPG originally released for the PlayStation 3 in 2014. The series will be returning to the west for the first time in a decade. Shining Resonance Refrain will feature dual audio, all of the original’s DLC, and a new “Refrain Mode”.
