It looks like it’s finally time for a new fighter and stage for ARMS! This week, Nintendo began teasing both on the game’s official Twitter account in Japan. We don’t quite know who the new fighter is (though there are hints in the screenshots below), but we do have details about the stage.
It’s located in temple grounds, and it’s been the site of fighting matches way before the ARMS League was even established. A rather peculiar face is engraved on the pillars… most definitely our new fighter!
Here’s the two screenshots shared this week:
Speaking of ARMS, here’s the usual pictures and video for the latest Splatoon Japan Grand Prix 2017 tournament, which was held in Tokyo last week-end:
Snipperclips Plus: Cut it out, together
Here’s the launch trailer for Snipperclips Plus: Cut it out, together, now available worldwide:
Also, Nintendo shared some pencil decorations today… or rather, a pdf file for you to print and cut out! That way, you can put Snip and Clip on your pencils and pens, and even play with them if you want. Click here for the pdf file to download!
Instructions are pretty straightforward:
- print the pdf file
- cut the sheet of paper, following the lines
- put the bottom part of the decorations around the top of your pencil/pen, using tape
- you’re done!
Nintendo Presents: New Style Boutique 3: Styling Star / Style Savvy: Styling Star
Here’s a couple of French commercials for Nintendo Presents: New Style Boutique 3: Styling Star / Style Savvy: Styling Star on Nintendo 3DS:
Nintendo Presents: New Style Boutique 3: Styling Star / Style Savvy: Styling Star (3DS) comes out on November 24th in Europe, and December 25th in North America.
Super Mario Odyssey
Super Mario Odyssey is off to a great start worldwide, and that includes France.
According to data from Le Monde, the game sold 115 000 units at launch… and that’s not counting the copies from the Nintendo Switch bundle (or digital sales). That’s a lot more than Super Mario 3D World, which sold 80 000 units… in 2013, not just at launch. It’s also the best start for a Nintendo Switch game, with 18 000 units more than The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (97 000 units at launch).
Speaking of Super Mario Odyssey, here’s the latest Accolades trailer:

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
Nintendo never shared a release date for the second DLC Pack for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (The Champions’ Ballad), just a vague “Winter 2017”. If you were wondering whether there would be a delay or not, the answer is… no. On the Nintendo eShop, Nintendo specifies the DLC Pack will be released sometime in December.
