You can find the full patch notes below.

Quite a bit is happening in Splatoon 2 tomorrow. The Pearl and Marina amiibo are finally being released and the game will also be updated to version 3.2.0. We don’t have the full English patch notes yet, but as always this update contains quite a few multiplayer balance changes. There are also several bug fixes and adjustments for the Octo Expansion.

Nintendo also revealed some new content coming to the game in a future update. First up is a new stage, Ancho-V Games:

Nintendo has provided a first look at the brand new Wolf amiibo that will be sold for Smash Bros. Ultimate. Wolf, in addition to Ridley and Inkling, will launch on December 7. Pricing is set at $15.99.

Nintendo has also announced that “many” of the original Smash Bros. amiibo will be re-released later this year. They’ll be sold for $12.99 each.


The Yakuza franchise has never really found a home on Nintendo consoles. Aside from Yakuza 1 & 2 on Wii U a few years ago, the series hasn’t appeared on a Nintendo platform.

Unfortunately, the idea was mostly shot down with Sato pointing out the poor performance of Yakuza 1 & 2 on Wii U and stating that the system “may not be the ideal platform.”
