I might just be crazy, but I love how Link is on the new title screen images for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. These images feature a few new characters and give some new life to the title screen. I really like the direction on these.
While some fans spend their free time enjoying their new Switch (if they can find one), Nintendo’s newest addition to the Fire Emblem series comes in less than a month to the 3DS; although, not completely new. Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia is actually a remake of the second game in the series. The game promises to take the unique gameplay aspects of the original and give it a modern flare. Nintendo released an Echoes overview trailer to highlight what makes it a new experience.
The newest installment to the Professor Layton series is coming to North America and Europe for Nintendo 3DS. Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and The Millionaires’ Conspiracy will be available for purchase this fall. Level 5 also confirmed the mobile version of the game will be available worldwide on July 20th.
The Switch has been killing it, selling over 900,000 units in the US in March and 2 million worldwide. With all of this success, I’d expect Nintendo to release alternate models in the near future. Looks like I’m not alone since Citigroup expects them to make a Switch Mini for 2019.
Nintendo released earlier today a video talking about modernizing the 3D platform with Yooka-Laylee. It is a lovely interview video discussing the challenges of making a modern collectathon. If anything, the video just reminds me how much I want to play this game on my Switch, and no there wasn’t a release date.
