Early this morning, January 16, Masahiro Sakurai, the director of the Smash Bros. series, shared another update on Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for Nintendo Switch. We learned what the last DLC character would be in the Fighter Pack 1, he showed us the next round of Mii costumes, we saw the next amiibo, and we found out there will be six characters coming in Fighter Pack 2.
Earlier today, via Masahiro Sakurai’s and NintendoVS Twitter, it was announced that there will be a 35 minute video livestream featuring an in-depth look at an upcoming DLC fighter. Nintendo then followed up with an official press release. This will be the final DLC character to be released under the first Smash Fighters Pass.
Super Nintendo World, a new Mario themed park being added onto Universal Studios in Osaka, Japan has released a slew of new information regarding the park. The park is planned on opening before the 2020 Olympics in Japan later this summer and looks like it will truly be an amazing adventure.
To celebrate the new year, Nintendo has dropped the price on a TON of games. (Even though the image says up to 30% off, it’s actually up to 75% off!)
