Detective Pikachu 2

During the Pokemon Press Conference 2019, a number of experiences were announced, including a new Detective Pikachu game for Switch. We’ve essentially heard nothing about the project since then, but there’s a chance that it could be released fairly soon.

It’s been spotted that Jonathan Murphy, a senior programmer at Creatures Inc. and Pokemon TCG Development Division, specifically mentions that Detective Pikachu 2 is “nearing release”. An unannounced project is there as well.

Super Mario Bros. movie New York Comic-Con

The first teaser trailer for the Super Mario Bros. animated movie will be shown at New York Comic Con, it’s been announced.

Those attending the expo will be able to see the video on October 6 at 4 PM. Presumably the video will be posted online later on – if not the same day, it should be live not too long after that.

Mario Rabbids Sparks of Hope preview

Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle was one the plucky plumber’s most unexpected and off-the-wall adventures in a long time when it released in 2017; it quickly became one of my favorite games on the Switch thanks to its simple but satisfying tactics and its delightfully quirky vibes. I was excited to have the opportunity to play its upcoming sequel, Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope, for nearly four hours at a recent Ubisoft preview event, where I experienced large chunks of the game’s combat, exploration, and story across a handful of different in-game planets. So far, what I’ve played of Sparks of Hope has me feeling confident that the game will be a substantial evolution of everything that made Kingdom Battle so special, and it seems poised to be Mario’s most memorable adventure in quite a while.

The full patch notes for the September 2022 Mario Strikers: Battle League update are as follows:

Nothing notable at all happened in the gaming industry last week. Nope, absolutely nothing to – wait, hang on, apparently I’m getting word that actually last week was quite possibly one of the biggest weeks for gaming news that we’ve seen all year? And that apparently there was a Nintendo Direct that announced some massive new games, including Pikmin 4 and a brand new Fire Emblem game? And that apparently on top of that some weird niche event called Tokyo Game Show had even more upcoming Switch games to reveal and show off?! Huh – well, I guess it’s time for a new episode of Nintendo Everything Refresh, then! In this jumbo-sized episode, join your hosts Nick, Nicolas and Dennis as they unpack all the news big and small from last week’s whirlwind of game reveals and announcements!
