Reggie Fils-Aimé

As announced a few weeks ago, yesterday (April 15th) was Reggie Fils-Aimé’s last day at Nintendo. And it looks like he’s decided that now that he’s no longer president of the company, it’s high time for him to make his debut on Twitter. Yesterday, he posted his very first tweets, which are all about his last day at Nintendo. We don’t really know what he’s planning to share on this account, but it’s probably safe to assume it’s mostly going to be about Nintendo in general.

Here’s the first tweets from the Reggienator:

Splatoon 2 artbook

Good news for fans of the Splatoon series: Dark Horse is localising the first Splatoon 2 artbook. According to the product page on Amazon (NB: affiliate link), it will be released on October 15th, and will cost about $39.99 (with Kindle version sold $22.15).

Here’s some details and the cover of the artbook:

Dive into over 380 pages worth of illustrations, key art, and designs of your favorite colorful characters, weapons, gear, locations, maps, and brands. The Art of Splatoon 2 also features storyboards and other extras sure to make a splash with any fan!

Don’t miss this ink-redible look at the best-selling family-friendly game Splatoon 2 in this colorful high-quality hardcover!

Late last year, a second artbook for Splatoon 2 (mostly focusing on the Octo Expansion) was released in Japan, and it’s quite likely that it will also be localised, eventually. Of course, it’s unlikely to be announced before the first one is released in English, though!

Super Mario Odyssey VR

Nintendo have shared more details about the VR content in Super Mario Odyssey, revealing that it will be playable even without the Toy-Con VR Goggle. Of course, if you want to see the world in full 360°, you will need to play in VR!

The update adding Toy-CON VR Goggle to Super Mario Odyssey will be released on April 25th/26th!

Kirby Star Allies

HAL Laboratory have shared some more concept-art for Kirby Star Allies, this time showcasing Void Termina! They came up with various designs, and ended up with the final one after many attempts at refining it. It certainly has quite the aura, with a mysterious and solemn appearance.
