Super Mario Odyssey (Switch) comes out in time for the holidays, worldwide.

Sonic the Hedgehog (First 4 Figures)

Here’s the usual making of video for the Sonic the Hedgehog 25th Anniversary statue from First 4 Figures:

ARMS

This week, ARMS will be showcased in Famitsu magazine, who will have a massive 14 page article with details about the various game modes, the fighters, and more.

Here’s the preview pages:

Nintendo Switch

Here’s pictures of a grip accessory for the Nintendo Switch, which allows you to transform a single Joy-Con (Left or Right) into a “regular” controller… but a pretty sad-looking one!

This accessory is now available in Japan.

FIFA 18

Yesterday, EA announced that FIFA 18 would be released on September 29th worldwide (Europe, North America, and Japan). No trailer was revealed for the Nintendo Switch version, but we already have the confirmation that it will indeed be “very special” and “custom built”, worthy of the Luigi name: no Frostbyte engine, missing game modes/features, and who knows what else EA decided to cut. Still full price, though!

The Upcoming Releases page has been updated.
