A Japanese overview trailer of MK8D shows off more battle mode tracks.
-Candy stage (like Sweet Sweet Canyon) -Space stage (like on a crater surface of a moon and also attached to a big space base that looks similar to the one from Rainbow Road.) -Oriental stage with big dragon statues (like that DLC Dragon race track) -Retro track, Wuhu Island Plaza from Mario Kart 7. The first time Wuhu Island has appeared on the Switch.
These stage join the previously revealed new course of Battle Stadium, Urchin Underpass and retro returning courses of Battle Course 1 (SNES) and Luigi's Mansion (GCN).
Shine Runner from MKDD returns and some new mode which looks like your being hunted by players with Piranha Plants and have to activate buttons (3:33)
The Alm and Celica amiibo will be used to summon an single turn ally version (at the sacrifice of their own health) that can level up and grow stronger and have those stats saved to the amiibo. The FE Smash amiibo (and the upcoming Corrin) will also be usable as temporary allies of themselves, while other amiibo will summon an ally monster to assist them.

Nintendo has been promoting ARMS over from Twitter with new pictures every so often. And they finally revealed a new character, Helix! One who appeared in the recent Direct leak, and has been foreshadowed since the games reveal.
SNES Mini to be released on 27 September, coming with (the US versions of) 21 games, including Star Fox, the unreleased Star Fox 2 and Yoshi's Island. Quite a surprise to me, and here I thought Nintendo wanted to (or had to) avoid Super FX chip emulation.
Thankfully, the physical console design is European.

Star Fox 2 is enough to turn my head. I've been wanting to play that for over 20 years.
However, that's the only game I really care about, as I already own almost all the others.
The mere presence of Super FX games, tho, does make me wonder if we'll eventually see them on a Switch Virtual Console anyway. It'd be strange to keep them exclusive to a limited run plug-and-play console.
SNES mini could deserve it own thread it there is enough interest.
Any how I just pre-ordered one, didn't have any interest in the NES mini after playing most of those games via Animal Crossing/VC/etc, the only SNES VC game I'm played is Super Metroid (Wii VC) and Kirby Super Star (Wii U VC). I still haven't played EarthBound since getting it the day of my Wii U or SMW last E3 (or was it 2015?).
But the inclusion of the unreleased SF2, just made me want it even more, I mean WHO THOUGHT THAT THIS WOULD EVER HAPPEN? SF2 will be playable this year!?
Includes two controllers with 5 foot cords (compared to NES mini's 3 foot and single controller), both SF and YI. Outside of not including the surprising omissions of DKC2/3 and no puzzle games and 3rd party licensed stuff (Tetris, Simcity) it's a pretty good list of games (would have been a great opportunity to re-brand Tetris Attack as Puzzle League).
Super Famicom mini also announced for Japan with the following games changed. Street Fighter II Turbo - Super Street Fighter II Super Castlevania IV - Ganbare Goemon Super Punch-Out!! - Super Formation Soccer Kirby's Dream Course - Panel De Pon EarthBound - Fire Emblem
For once, Japan doesn't get EarthBound.

^ Now it's confirmed, Detective Pikachu is coming west and will have an NA and Europe release March 23rd!
Also Detective Pikachu amiibo!
From the press release, A special Detective Pikachu amiibo is in the works, too. This amiibo features a sleuthing Pikachu that’s larger than the standard amiibo, and when used with your game, it can unlock short videos that may contain helpful hints for your investigation. Check back for details on this special limited-edition amiibo.
I'll admit though this is the Switch board, this Game Announcement thread still feels like 3DS games belong in it.
In a break from Wii U to Switch ports, here's comes a Wii to Switch port. Go Vacation was originally released in 2011 from the Namco dev's who made We Ski and it's sequel, this is basically like Wii Sports Resort except with more sports and you can travel around the island free roaming style. Also Nintendo is publishing the Switch version.
Story trailer for Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido. This game will have both Joy-Con or touch screen controls for the Switch version.

Nester the Lark: Speaking of the song "Reincarnation," perhaps it might have sounded something like this if the game had gotten an English dub.

nocturnal YL: According to Nintendo's IR calendar, they're going to release their financial information up to December 2020 on 1 Feb. Switch sales (68.30 mil at Sep 2020) may very well surpass that of the 3DS (75.94 mil), but how will it compare to the GBA (81.51 mil)?
Jan 31, 2021 12:10:02 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: It's closer to the GBA sales than I thought. Switch hardware sales up to December 2020 is 79.87 mil, while I expected about 78 mil.
Feb 1, 2021 8:07:53 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Also, while they stopped counting 3DS and Wii U hardware sales, software went up from 385.12 mil to 385.85 mil and 103.27 mil to 103.31 mil. Switch software sales went from 456.49 mil to 532.34 mil, surpassing that of NES and Game Boy.

nocturnal YL: So now that I have a capture device, I've been looking at my games and tried to figure out the resolution and frame rate they run at. Trials Rising is 540p30, Project DIVA Mega Mix has the UI at 720p60 and the simpler, single-singer PVs run at 540p60…?
Feb 6, 2021 11:42:34 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: All the Atelier games I've seen so far (Arland 1-4) run at 1080p30, which is a bit surprising as I expected a lower resolution for Lulua. Void Terrarium and Puyo Puyo Tetris 1 and 2 all run at 1080p60. PPT1 also ran at 1080p60 on Wii U, so no surprise.
Feb 6, 2021 11:45:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ In Atelier Lulua, the system UI and even some parts with 3D models (like the synthesis screen) run at full 1080p at 60 fps. That's a huge leap from the previous two games in the series. World map runs at 30 fps though, despite not being intensive.
Feb 8, 2021 11:13:44 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Rune Factory 4 Special runs at 720p60. Fire Emblem Three Houses is a weird case; it looks like 900p30 to me, but because of the way the edge of the models are drawn, the graphics end up looking very ugly.

Nester the Lark: I've been doing the same thing I do every time I consider getting Smash Ultimate: playing Smash for Wii U. It turns out there are still plenty of people playing it online. Makes me curious about Splatoon 1.
Feb 20, 2021 10:08:42 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: The online also worked better than I remember. Maybe because there are fewer people...?
Feb 20, 2021 10:10:09 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: My skill curve in Smash Bros seems to be the opposite of other games: the more I play, the worse I get.
Feb 23, 2021 17:28:27 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: TIL I had not yet unlocked all the stages in Smash for Wii U. Just unlocked the last one today, six years after getting the game.
