Want to watch some new Super Mario Odyssey footage? Check out the video above! This video showcases New Donk City and is taken from the San Diego Comic Con. Super Mario Odyssey will be releasing on October 27th and I cannot wait. It looks like Super Mario 3D World mixed with Mario 64!
If you are like me, Rayman Legends: Definitive Edition for the Nintendo Switch is on your gaming radar. Although I have already played (and freaking LOVED) the game, I plan on “double dipping” when Ubisoft drops the game for Nintendo Switch. Well my friends, it appears as though an official release date for Rayman Legends: Definitive Edition on Switch has been announced. Rayman Legends: Definitive Edition is now showing as having a release date as September 12, 2017. A demo is available right now in Europe and I am hoping to hear something soon for a US version. We fully expect some more added goodies to this “definitive edition” for Rayman Legends and we will share them once they are announced.
It has been announced that Sony is once again king of the consoles as they posted impressive sales numbers for the PS4 last month. The PS4 outsold both the XBOX One and Nintendo’s newest machine, the Nintendo Switch. The new gold 1TB slim PlayStation 4 drove those sales and led to the best June ever for PS4 system sales.
Sony launched the limited edition gold PS4 slim for $250 on June 9. Only time will tell if this momentum keeps up but we will be here to report it.
In case you missed it, I posted another Nintendo Switch related video on my YouTube channel, so check it out above! In this video, I discuss the major restock that is coming for the system and how Splatoon 2 will play a major role in that.
During a recent earnings call, Ubisoft has stated that it has more Nintendo Switch games coming down the pipeline and they will be announced “very soon”. Ubisoft has always been a big supporter of Nintendo consoles and I can’t wait to see what they will be bringing to the Switch. In August, the company will release Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle exclusively for the system and I plan on picking it up late next month.
As soon as Ubisoft announces its Switch games, we will be here to break the news. More as it develops my friends.
Here is the first TV commercial for Hey! Pikmin on 3DS. Notice how the kid in the 30 second spot is sporting the new 2DS XL as well… Pikmin for the 3DS looks pretty decent and I am very eager to read the first reviews on the game. Hey! Pikmin comes to Nintendo 3DS systems on July 28.
Today’s image of the day is just a nice little drawing of our friend Mario. While perusing the internet, I came across this little gem and I thought some of you may enjoy it. This was found on a random page on pinterest so please check it out.
