Ubisoft has brought another game to Switch today. Monopoly is out not physically as well as on the eShop. View some footage below.

Ubisoft readied a new video to promote the inclusion of the exclusive Mario track in the Switch version of Just Dance 2018. Have a look at below.

Ubisoft has released a trailer for the recently released Ultra Challenge Pack DLC for Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle. Give it a watch:

Yesterday it was first made known that the Switch version of Just Dance 2018 has exclusive Mario maps. What that amounts to is apparently simply a remake of “Just Mario”. It originally appeared in the Just Dance games for Wii, but has been updated on Switch.

Here’s a look:

Other than “Just Mario”, the Switch version of Just Dance 2018 also allows for two-handed choreographies using the Joy-Con.

The first piece of Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle DLC is starting to go live. In the UK, we’re hearing reports that the Ultra Challenge Pack is now available, with other regions to follow very shortly.

The Ultra Challenge Pack features “Special Challenges” that offer difficult maps that you can now tackle from the “Secret Area” in each of the four worlds. It also includes the “Cataclysm Kerfuffle” co-op campaign comprised of five maps with more difficult versions that can be unlocked.

A new patch is now available for Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle, bringing the game up to version 1.2.400297. There are no patch notes so far, but it seems like the purpose of this update is to prepare the game for the upcoming DLC, which is actually being released very soon. The digital receipt you get when buying the season pass now lists October 17th as the release date for the first part of the DLC, the challenge maps. The second part of the DLC, which will bring new story content, has also gotten a concrete release date: January 16th, 2018.

Ubisoft hasn’t said much about the Switch version of Steep since it was announced for the console back in January. Even with the silence, we apparently shouldn’t be too concerned, as it’s said to still be happening.

Nerd Report interviewed Steep director Arnaud Ragot in preparation of a new expansion releasing on other platforms soon. The publication also managed to ask a question about the Switch edition. Ragot said that it’s “still planned, still something we have in our mind.” The current focus is that expansion, though.


IGN France reported in June that Ubisoft was having some trouble getting Steep to run properly on Switch. But development was apparently ongoing at the time, and Nintendo was even lending its assistance.

Yesterday, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle creative director Davide Soliani participated in a Reddit AMA. Fans were able to ask the developer all sorts of questions. Soliani touched on interest in making sequel, teased the upcoming DLC, confirmed that a new patch is coming this month, and more.

We’ve collected many of the relevant responses from the AMA below. You can read the full thing here.

Update: A demo on the Wii U is also now available. 


Original: Last night, a demo for Just Dance 2018 was made available for Switch in Europe via the eShop. The same demo is out now in North America as well. Look for it in the “Coming Soon” section of the eShop.

Ubisoft released a new trailer to promote the demo’s arrival. You can find that attached below.

A demo for Just Dance 2018 has gone live on the European Switch eShop. You can find it via the “Coming Soon” section of the store, on the game’s official listing. It’s a 444MB download.

The demo lets you play with either the Joy-Con or a mobile device. It features 24K Magic from Bruno Mars.

Meanwhile, the eShop listing also confirms the file size for the actual game. Just Dance 2018’s final version is 6.6GB.
