Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King / Poochy & Yoshi’s Wooly World

This week, Nintendo updated the gamepages/websites for two upcoming games on Nintendo 3DS:

Super Mario Run

If you want to use your Mii in Super Mario Run, you have to link the game to your Nintendo Account. But did you know you could use your Mii from Miitomo in Super Mario Run (and for your Nintendo Account)? You have to do the following:

  • in Miitomo (Ver. 2.1.0 or more recent), link the game to your Nintendo Account (if you haven’t already)
  • go to the Menu, and choose the “Use my Miitomo Mii on my Nintendo Account option”
  • in Super Mario Run, link the game to your Nintendo Account, and voilà!

The Wonderful 101

Ahead of the removal of the Wonderful 101 original soundtrack, on December 31st, Platinum Games is doing a countdown of the most popular tracks from the soundtrack. This week, it’s track #1: The Won-Stoppable Wonderful 100 (English)!

Nintendo searches

According to SimilarWeb, search volume for Nintendo-related terms increased dramatically in the past few months. Naturally, this is due to the various announcements (Nintendo Switch) and new releases (Pokémon Sun and Moon, Pokémon GO, Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System).

The growth in search traffic is really impressive: traffic in November was 60 times higher than in January. This was helped by the increase in keywords generating traffic: 6 in January, and… 101 in November. Compared to Nintendo’s direct competitors, both the search volume and the number of keywords generating traffic are much higher.
