Here’s various illustrations celebrating New Year, from 3rd-party developers/publishers and/or games/franchies/series:

Super Mario Odyssey

Today is January 1st: not just the first day of the week, but the first day of a new month. And that means it’s high time for the latest Super Mario Odyssey wallpaper and calendar for your smartphone!

Attack on Titan 2

Here’s a third TV Commercial for Attack on Titan 2 on Nintendo Switch:

Attack on Titan 2 (Switch) comes out on March 15th in Japan, and March 20th in Europe and North America.

Yo-kai Watch 3

Could Level-5 be teasing a localisation of Yo-kai Watch 3? That’s certainly what the picture shared on Twitter alongside the Happy New Year wishes seem to imply. Have you noticed the bunny ears at the bottom left corner? Those are USApyon’s, a Yo-kai introduced in Yo-kai Watch 3. It could very well be exclusively for the Yo-kai Watch Wibble Wobble mobile game, but that would be surprising… Hopefully, we will get an announcement soon!

First 4 Figures

Earlier today, First 4 Figures shared a blog post going over everything they achieved in 2017, and some of their plans for 2018. As far as actual products go, here’s what they have in store for 2018:

  • More PVC projects. I want to see at least 4-5 in 2018 go into the marketplace
  • Add a third pillar to the F4F lineup – plush!
