Ahead of tomorrow's release of the NPD Group sales report for April in the US, Nintendo has shared some of the big news regarding Switch and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
Grezzo's upcoming 3DS RPG Ever Oasis may seem like a minor event, but don't sell it short. The game is being directed by Koichi Ishii of Secret of Mana fame, and despite its kid-friendly look, aims to offer up substantial, classic RPG gameplay rife with exploring, dungeon-crawling, and battling. Gameplay also centers around building a "prosperous oasis" over time via missions and other tasks, hence its title.
Nintendo hopped on the "season pass" DLC-style bandwagon with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, a move that was probably inevitable when you consider that pretty much the entire industry is doing it. Nintendo today revealed in-depth DLC details for its upcoming Fire Emblem Gaiden remake Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, and as expected, similar rules apply.
The Nintendo Switch is off to a hot start, selling 2.74 million consoles in its first month, well ahead of Nintendo's first-month forecast of 2 million units. Now, Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima has said Nintendo believes the console can reach "relative parity" with the Wii, which sold more than 100 million units.
According to an undisclosed Kotaku source, Ubisoft is developing an upcoming Switch RPG that will feature its zany Rabbids as well as Nintendo’s iconic plumber. Supposedly, the game is called Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, and it will be out in August or September.
