We've already detailed the big update that's coming to Puzzle & Dragons Super Mario Bros. Edition in Japan, but the update was never given a release date. Now Gungho has come forward to announce that the update is launching on Dec. 17th. That date is for Japan, as there's still no word on the update releasing in North America.
We've had the Yo-Kai Watch demo in North America for awhile now, but our friends in Europe and Australia have to wait. The good news is, Australia can now pick up the demo for the 3DS. You can just hop on the eShop and download it! The demo is the same one that we got in North America, so no new content that we haven't seen.
