The Snack World: Trejarers Gold
A few weeks ago, it was announced that The Snack World: Trejarers was headed to the Nintendo Switch. And a few days ago, Level-5 shared some additional details and pictures about this version of the game, to be known as The Snack World: Trejarers Gold.
It will be released on April 12th in Japan, and will feature enhanced graphics, as well as an improved battle system and “action motions”. As expected, this Nintendo Switch version of the game will also include the two DLC Packs originally released for the Nintendo 3DS version of the game. Finally, first-print copies of the game at retail will include a Crystal Sword Z – α toy.

FIFA 18 – UK Sales
Today, Gfk-Chart Track reported that thanks to a price cut, sales of the Nintendo Switch version of FIFA 18 jumped by 494%.
A funny and somewhat impressive stat that’s ultimately worthless without any concrete data to back it. After all, +494% would be a lot less impressive if the game sold 100 units the previous week, than if it had sold 1 000 units… especially as the PlayStation 4 remained the best-selling version that week.
