Glide mini-game and Mini Game Masters Skin Pack info

A new update soars majestically onto Console Edition today - bringing with it a new game mode and two new skin packs, among other improvements!

First up is Glide - a free new mini game in which players strive to beat the clock, the score, or each other by strapping on elytra and swooping round challenging tracks. Up to 16 players can compete at once, or scuffle over scores on the all new leaderboards, available on Xbox One and PS4. You can read all about it and watch the video we posted yesterday here! It’s pretty swish.

As you strive to out-swoop the competition, we want you to look like the champions you are, and so we’re releasing the Mini Game Masters Skin Pack today as well, featuring sporting skins fitting for any would-be winner. Whether you’re a beast of Battle, a titan of Tumble or a god at Glide, we have the streamlined spandex for you. Are you strong on defence? You should try out for Team Guardian. Got an explosive attacking style? Team Creeper might have an opening for you. Look like an undead biker, uh, wearing a chicken? Then I guess Team Zombie is a good fit. Congrats?

Whichever team you pick, prepare to out-style AND out-play your competitors! As always, a handful of these skins are free - so check them out and see if the knee-pads are a good fit.

Has-Been Heroes getting day-one patch, Frozenbyte open to Trine/Trine 2 ports to Switch

A portion of a GameSpace interview with Frozenbyte...

GS: Are there any plans for content updates post launch?

F: We have a day 1 patch coming but that is more of a visual and balancing update… We’ll have to see about content updates, the stuff we have on launch is pretty tough to beat as it is!

GS: Do you see yourselves bringing past games like Trine to the Switch?

F: We’ve done so many ports over the years for Trine and Trine 2 that we’d rather concentrate on bringing some totally new games to the Switch now. It might be an option further down the line though.

Looks like Twenty One Pilots' Tyler Joseph was caught playing some Breath of the Wild in his downtime. Is this rose-tinted glasses, or did the Wii U get much less attention from gamers/celebs when it came out? I don't remember so many people talking about/sharing their purchase.
