Miis lose their range of expressions in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Looks like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has lost one feature the Wii U version had. People are noticing that the Mii faces in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe just don't show the range of emotions they did in the Wii U version. Mii faces in the Switch version seem to remain the same during the entire race, whereas on Wii U, they would react to what was going on with your character. Could be a bug, or could be removed content. Either way, it can be a bit creepy!

Unholy Night: The Darkness Hunter - English boxart

Runner3 dev blog update - Charles Martinet finishes recording his lines

As you may already know, Charles Martinet very graciously agreed to return for his role of The Narrator. What you don’t know, however, is that he has quite a few more lines this time around! Like, way more!

The story of Runner3 is going to be a little more substantial than what you’ve seen in the previous Runner games. We won’t let it obstruct the gameplay, certainly, but if you’re the kind of player who’s interested in learning a little more about the wacky world of Runner3, that option will be there for you. I don’t want to tell you how to play your video game, of course, but I do highly recommend you seek out the story we’ve woven throughout the game. We’ll do a blog post soon about what that kind of pursuit would look like.

Harvest Moon: Skytree Village - Limited Edition available for preorder

Times have changed in the land known as the Oasis of the Harvest Goddess. Many people used to live in Skytree Village, and the land was lush and green. However, the power of the Harvest Goddess gradually began to wane, and the land became parched and dry.

It's up to you to revive the seven Skytrees in order to give the Harvest Goddess her power back, and in turn, bring life back to this desolate land! Along the way, players will meet a new cast of characters (with a few returning faces!), alongside a brand new art style, new character models, and more.

With user-friendly tutorials, players will immediately be able to jump into the thick of things, customising their farm by raising and lowering the land, creating rivers, ponds, and more. Upgraded tools will assist farmers in shaping the land more efficiently, and afterwards they can kick back and relax in their boat to do a spot of fishing! It won't be long before they'll need to weigh anchor to care for their newest herd animal: the Poitou donkey!

Key Features:

Play as a boy or a girl, woo bachelorettes and bachelors, and start a family!
Completely new story with tons of interesting new characters.
New crops and flowers to discover.
New fishing mechanics: expand waterways and catch rarer fish.
A full town with many residents, each with their own personalities and quirks.
Limited Edition includes:

Harvest Moon®: Skytree Village game for Nintendo 3DS
Collector's box
Full-colour, 44-page softcover art book
Original soundtrack with jewel case
6 Lapel pin set
Blue feather rubber strap keychain
