Japanese gamers have spent a disturbing amount of time and effort trying to see up Peach's dress in Smash Bros. Ultimate

Some people just want to watch the world burn. Ever since Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS, a number of fans have been doing everything they can to see what's underneath Peach's dress. Nintendo planned for this, and made the underside of Peach's dress extremely dark. Those defeated Smash Wii U/3DS fans haven't given up though, and set out in Smash Bros. Ultimate to get a peek once again.

Yes, as soon as the game launched, a number of people made it their mission to try and sneak a peek once more. The thing is, they've found out a way to actually get a look this time. Years and years of effort to catch a glance, and now they've succeeded. Messages of celebration and more have been shared by Japanese gamers on Twitter after their discovery.

No, I won't be showing those screens on GoNintendo. I mean, I think you can understand why! We'll just sit back and wait to see if Nintendo patches this new discovery.

The Switch OS may soon see an official Chinese translation

While a number of Switch games have received official translations into Chinese and Korean, the Switch OS itself has not. That appears to be changing, as Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's version 1.1.0 update includes menu options written in Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese. There's no official comment on OS-level translations just yet, but this is definitely a step in the right direction.

Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth becomes Japan's biggest 3DS launch of 2018

Famitsu's weekly most wanted charts showed us that Japan was pretty eager to get its hands on Persona Q2, and now the sales charts have proven the Famitsu polls were spot-on. Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth saw 80,000 copies sold in its first week, making it the best-selling 3DS game of 2018 in Japan. It beat out the previous record holder, Etrian Odyssey Nexus, which debuted to 72,000 sold.

That said, we do have to put things into perspective. When Persona Q2 is compared to the original, things don't look quite as rosy. The first game managed to pull in 187,000 units sold in the first week, accounting for 80.64% of its initial shipment. Persona Q2's opening sales accounted for 64.54%.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe bundle and Super Mario Odyssey Starter Pack see release in South Korea

Nintendo has two more special Switch releases for South Korea, and they're both coming out very soon. First up is the Switch Mario Kart 8 Deluxe bundle that saw release in other parts of the world. The bundle, which includes Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and a Neon Blue/Neon Red Switch, launches December 13th, 2018, and is priced at 369,800 won. This is actually 55,000 won cheaper than buying a Switch/copy of the game alone!

Next up is the Super Mario Odyssey Starter Pack, which is actually available in South Korea right now! The Starter Pack saw a bit of a stealth release, kind of like what happened here in the states.

The game has debuted at spot #1 on the Switch eShop-only charts! It also did quite well in the overall eShop charts, where it placed 4th below Smash Bros.

Ni no Kuni DS fan-translation now available

Ni no Kuni's PS3 version made it outside of Japan, but the DS version never did. It was unfortunate to see Level-5 make the decision to hold back the DS outing, but of course, fans stepped in to change that. A fan-translation for Ni no Kuni on DS is now available. As you can imagine, there was a TON of text to translate for this title, so this was quite a labor of love. Now let's see if any official parties step in to hit this translation with a cease and desist.
