The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

In the past few days, Nintendo has been sharing some gameplay clips for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Here’s the latest two, showcasing the Woodcutter’s House, and the Magnesis ability:

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Wii U / NX) comes out next year, worldwide.

Mario Party: Star Rush

Thanks to MarioFans.de, we have what seems to be the final European boxart for Mario Party: Star Rush:

Mario Party: Star Rush (3DS) comes out on October 7th in Europe, and November 4th in North America.

Wii U Sales in Germany

In an article published yesterday, Börse-Online gives some data about total console sales for Germany. Quite surprisingly, the Wii U is still ahead of the Xbox One, despite selling rather poorly (it hasn’t even reached 1 million units in almost 4 years)… which shows just how poorly Microsoft’s console has been selling so far.

Here’s the total console sales for Germany:

  • [PS4] 3,250,000 (3.2m according to the article, but a bit difference from the graph)
  • [WIU] 750,000
  • [XB1] 710,000

And here’s total console sales for Germany for 2016:

  • [PS4] 460,000
  • [XB1] 105,000
  • [WIU] 60,000 (estimate)

Thanks Ryng_Tolu for the heads up.

A few days ago, Rising Star Games confirmed that the Nintendo 3DS version of Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse would be released at retail in Europe and North America. Good news for American fans: it can now be pre-ordered on Amazon.com! [NB: affiliate link]

Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse (3DS) comes out on September 27th in North America, and September 30th in Europe.
