Super Mario Party

Yesterday, Nintendo finally opened the official website for Super Mario Party in Japan. At the moment, it’s more akin to a teaser website than a proper one, as it’s pretty empty (there’s literally one page). However, there is one new tidbit: the website reveals that a bundle with a pair of Joy-Cons, (similar to the one announced for Europe a few weeks ago), is headed to Japan. It will be released a bit later: on December 1st. The price will be 9 980 Yen + taxes.

Here’s various illustrations from the official website:

Super Mario Party (Switch) comes out on October 5th worldwide. A bundle including the game + two Joy-Cons is launching on November 23rd in Europe and December 1st in Japan.

Nintendo Minute (Nintendo Labo)

Here’s the latest episode of Nintendo Minute, which is about Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 03: Vehicle Kit!

Hi, today we’re playing with the Nintendo Labo Vehicle Kit which launches on Sept. 14! In our last Nintendo Labo video, we focused a lot on the make and discover parts of Nintendo Labo so this time we thought we’d check out play. One really fun area mode we tried out is Adventure Mode where you get to explore with all the different vehicles: the car, plane and submarine! We found some really cool things! Nintendo Labo Vehicle Kit is also going to be compatible with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, so we hope you give it a try when it comes out. As always, thanks so much for watching and we’ll see you next week!
