Aksys Games is bringing the visual novel Tales from Toyotoki: Arrival of the Witch to the Switch sometime this Summer. Today brings us a new trailer for the game ahead of its arrival and you can check it out above.

Hikaru finds himself out of luck and homeless on an Island he doesn’t know. While avoiding pit vipers and angry senior committee members he comes across a witch in a very similar situation. The two set out to survive and hopefully thrive on the uncompromising Island of Toyotoki. An island secluded from the modern world, steeped in ancient traditions and shrouded in mystery.

Making a space for themselves on the island won’t be easy, and along the way they find others trying to find their way just as much. An energetic rich girl, a clumsy saleswoman, and a manga loving delinquent all trying to figure out what they want to do. Maybe with some hard work and just a bit of magic they can find out and unravel the mystery of Toyotoki Island.

Key features

  • Coming of age story about overcoming hardships and finding yourself
  • Immersive voice-acting performances by the main cast
  • Unravel a mystery stretching back hundreds of years
  • Beautiful character art

Ever wonder what is the best combination of kart pieces and racers is in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe? There are plenty of conversations online from people who claim to know the top pick, but that’s a little hard to believe due to there being over 700k possible combinations. Thankfully, now we have a definitive answer, and it comes from one very dedicated data scientist.

Antoine Mayerowitz set out to find the best of the best in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, which led him to discover that there are 703,560 different build options, but when duplicates are taken out, players have 25,704 distinct statistical options to pick from. That’s still a ton of choosing to do, so which combination will give you the best shot at first place? Turns out pro players have been onto something for years now.

With all the numbers crunched, we’ve seen that a Peach build is the way to go. In particular, going with Peach, the Teddy Buggy, Roller tyres and the Cloud Glider will get you the best chance at securing victory. This build is optimized for every single attribute, so if all that matters to you is getting first place and not who your racer/kart is, this is the way to go.

Mayerowitz has a LOT more data to offer in his full study, and it’s all presented in rather gorgeous fashion. If you want to dive deeper in the mechanics of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, you can find his full analysis here.

Nintendo shares a new Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door trailer

The GameCube classic is looking better than ever

19 April 2024
by rawmeatcowboy 0

Ahead of its May 23rd, 2024 release, Nintendo has been sharing various videos on social media for Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. Today brings us another of those trailers, and you can see how this remake is coming along in the video above!

In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, the nefarious X-Nauts are after the treasure behind the Thousand-Year Door! With a map from Princess Peach, and the help of a few locals, Mario journeys through a colorful world made of paper to find them first.

To prevail in this quest, you’ll have to level up Mario and his friends, master timing-based attacks and badges to impress the audience on the stage of combat, and make use of all the abilities that come with being cursed—er, conveniently made of paper—like folding into a plane to cross big gaps or turning sideways to slip through narrow openings.
