Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

In order to promote Super Smash Bros. Ultimate in the United States, Nintendo has partnered with the Tailgate Tour (the largest traveling fan experience in college football). During select college football games this season, the game will be playable outside the stadium in a customised trailer with six gameplay stations and a large LED screen.

Here’s the schedule for the tour:

  • Sept. 22 – Stanford @ Oregon
  • Oct. 6 – Alabama @ Arkansas
  • Oct. 13 – Wisconsin @ Michigan
  • Oct. 20 – Oklahoma @ TCU
  • Oct. 27 – Clemson @ FSU
  • Nov. 3 – South Carolina @ Ole Miss
  • Nov. 10 – TCU @ West Virginia
  • Nov. 17 – Miami @ Virginia Tech
  • Nov. 24 – Michigan @ Ohio State
  • Dec. 7 – The launch of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate!
  • Jan. 1, 2019 – Teams and location to be determined

You can find more details on the official website!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (Switch) comes out on December 7th worldwide.

Splatoon 2

On September 1st, the latest content update for Splatoon 2 didn’t go live as usual. Nintendo then announced that it would come a bit later than usual, in early September. Unfortunately, it looks like Inklings and Octolings around the world will have to wait a little longer: the Squid Research Lab has confirmed they were running behind schedule. We can definitely expect tomorrow’s Nintendo Direct to shine some light as to why it was delayed in the first place!
