Here's info on Version 1.5.8, which is out right now.
“This update simplifies adding users to local multiplayer games. Previously, when choosing additional users, you could pick one that was already selected by a friend and steal control from them. It was a bit confusing and has been prevented with the new update. This will make it easier for friends and family to choose their own user or choose the skip button to play as a guest!”
The developer also confirmed that another update is in the works, and should be hitting the Switch shortly. No word on what that update will do.
The following comes from Regista, the visual novel studio behind the Root Double series and the Nippon Ichi Software-produced Exile Election.
“The limited company Regista will develop for Nintendo Switch. We are starting work on the development of existing titles, as well as original titles. Please look forward to the announcement of more information.”
Looks like there will be ports and new content, so the best of both worlds! Let's hope some of these games get official localizations.
Looks like people really, REALLY like the theme song for Super Mario Odyssey. While it's fluctuating a bit as the day goes on, Jump Up, Super Star! has been in the Top 40 on the iTunes charts in the United States. That's the ALL chart, not a specific chart. In other words, this is one of the top 40 most popular songs in the states right now!
UPDATE - Looks like Japan has showed us up. On their iTunes charts, the song is currently sitting in the #1 position!
I think everyone has these lyrics drilled into memory by now, but if that's not the case, the box for Super Mario Odyssey has you covered! I always appreciate seeing a bit of something on the inside of a game case. Not surprised to see Nintendo went the extra mile.
Whenever a LEGO game comes out on Switch, people are worried that there will be an extra download required with the retail versions. We can all thank LEGO City Undercover for making people worried about that! Thankfully there has been confirmation that LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 won't require a download if you're going the retail route, so your Switch space is safe.
List of changes:
- raises level cap from LV. 99 to LV. 150
- various bug fixes
- will be released alongside the first DLC pack sometime in October
DLC Pack 1 – Point 1
This DLC allows players to challenge some vicious bosses:
Zombie King: he used to be the King of a certain Kingdom. One day, someone put zombie powder in his food by mistake, and he became a zombie.
Holy Dragon Dear Falcon: a dragon version of Dear Falcon.
DLC Pack 1 – Point 2
This DLC allows players to tackle some new dungeons:
Underground Labyrinth Foie Gras, where the Zombie King is said to live. The layout is pretty complicated, which is why adventurers frequently get lost inside. Lots of mysterious monsters are said to live in that dungeon.
Scorching Hot Volcano Gratania, found in the north-eastern part of the continent. As expected, all the monsters living in there are pretty hot… and no, we’re not talking about physical appearance here! There’s also lots of lava around, so make sure you’re extra careful when you head into that dungeon. Oh, and be wary of the boss whose roar can be heard often in those parts…
DLC Pack 1 – Point 3
This DLC allows players to play with a Dragon Knight version of Chap and Vincent.
Dragon Knight Cap can hit enemies with continuous slashing attacks, while Dragon Knight Vincent is even stronger than the regular “version”, with his deadly special moves.
DLC Pack 1 – Point 4
This DLC allows players to break through the limits of their stats. With this DLC, you will get the following:
lots of XP after you’ve reached LV. 99. And no, it’s not a mistake: on the same day as the DLC is released, a free update (for all players) will raise the level cap, from LV. 99 to LV. 150
raised level cap for Jarra, from LV. 5 to to LV. 8
raised cap for bonds with characters and monsters you have as snacks, from ♡ 3 to ♡ 5
