Zelda Tears of the Kingdom Depths design

A recent interview with Famitsu reveals that the Depths for The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom “were made in a surprisingly short period of time.”

That comes from director Hidemaro Fujibayashi. The initial area’s development came together quickly, though he did acknowledge that “it took a long time and many adjustments for it to take its present shape”. 

When the final wave of Booster Course Pass DLC drops this holiday, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe will finally stop adding more tracks. Thinking about the amount of content the game has, it’s kind of insane. Between the main release and DLC, players can race on nearly 100 courses.

Previous datamines have given hints as to which other tracks will make up the final wave of the Booster Course Pass. But potential leaks aside, what’s the one Mario Kart course we’ve yet to see in the game that you’d like to be be added? Let us know in the comments below.

Fresh Start review

System: Switch
Release date: September 14, 2023
Developer: Awaken Realms
Publisher: Merge Games

Growing up, I never really believed that cleaning up could be a game. That was just a painfully transparent lie that my parents (no doubt inspired by Mary Poppins) told me in some effort to get me to tidy up, even knowing as I did that it was only going to get messed up again within five minutes. But as I grew older I learned that there was something very satisfying and rewarding about accomplishing a simple task, and Merge Games’ latest title, Fresh Start, aims to capitalize on that feeling through its cozy and relaxing gameplay. While it succeeds admirably on that front, it could have used a little more cleaning and polishing before it was brought over to the Switch, and the end result is a muddied experience that is tough to recommend.
