With Ubisoft officially publishing the Rayman Legends Definitive Edition demo, the original version from July has been updated. You can see how the old and new releases compare below.

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle creative director Davide Soliani shared a little nugget about the game’s performance on Twitter. When Switch is docked, the resolution will be 900. Like almost every other Switch game, it’s 720p in portable mode.

We’ve also pretty much known that Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle runs at 30 frames per second. But if you needed further confirmation, Davide has offered just that. Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is 30 FPS both docked and when playing on Switch.

The toys-to-life market currently isn’t where it used to be a few years ago. It’s been on the decline, as is evident by the lack of a new Skylanders game this year and the slowdown of LEGO Dimensions.

Given the market, it came as a surprise to many when Ubisoft announced Starlink: Battle for Atlas at E3. Players can buy and attach physical starships to controllers. The concept is risky, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has admitted, but the company believes “that there are lots of people who want this type of game.”

Guillemot told GamesIndustry:

“We thought that bringing 2.0 of that model was potentially very interesting. We’ll see. It’s a risk, but we feel that there are lots of people who want this type of game. Maybe they don’t want to say it, but they do want to buy it.”
