Amiibo

In just a few days, amiibo collectors will finally be able to purchase several new figures. Among them will be the nice 30th Anniversary Mario figures, which will be available in classic and modern color variants. However it seems like those who want to get the modern color variant may have to wait for some time before being able to purchase the amiibo by itself in the US.

The page for the 30th Anniversary Mario – Modern Mario amiibo on the Nintendo Official website states that this amiibo is going to be available exclusively in the Super Mario Maker Deluxe set at launch. The fact that it’s specified that exclusivity will be at launch seems to suggest that the amiibo will be available outside the bundle only some time after the release of Super Mario Maker. We will let you know more as soon as Nintendo says more about the matter.

As mentioned above, several new figures will be released in a few days in North America. Among these are new entries of the Super Smash Bros line such as Ganondorf, Olimar, Zero Suit Samus and Dr. Mario, which is going to be a Target exclusive in the US. Other three figures of the Super Smash Bros. line will be released later this month in the Retro 3 Pack, which will include the Duck Hunt, Mr. Game & Watch and R.O.B. figures. This pack will be a GameStop exclusive release.

Last week it’s been confirmed that another figure based on a third party character is going to be released in the future. The Shovel Knight figure will be compatible with Shovel Knight and other future games by Yacht Club Games and will unlock exclusive content not available without it.

News on the upcoming amiibo releases are constantly coming in and we will keep you updated as soon as possible so stay tuned for all the latest news on the successful Nintendo figures.

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.

Bandai Namco and Nike designed Tekken 8 sneakers with tag-team designs

Nike, the maker of high-quality shoes, is working with Bandai Namco, the company that makes the Tekken series, to make a pair of sneakers. The fun competition is part of the franchise’s 30th anniversary celebrations. You can get your own pair for $250 or the equivalent in your country, though they’ll probably be worth a lot more on the sneakerhead black market.

Two pairs of Tekken 8 x Nike Air Foamposite One Fist sneakers are set to come out in September 2024, according to shoe fan Sole Retriever (thanks, VGC). The designs are based on Kazuya and Jin, two main characters in the series. You can get them at Nike and some other stores. People who like hypebeasts and fighting games are likely to buy these quickly, so if you like Tekken and shoes that make people talk, you should probably act fast.

Should Bandai Namco and Nike work together? What do you think? Are you going to fight for your own pair? Make sure to take good care of your shoes and keep their value in the comments section below.

There will soon be a new book in Future Press’s Books of Knowledge series, which is FromSoftware’s officially licensed line of hardcover strategy guides. This will help players who are having trouble with Elden Ring’s Shadow of the Erdtree expansion. The base game came with two books, and now you can get the unholy trinity for $45 (or the equivalent amount in your currency). It will ship on September 30th.

Like the first two games, The Lands Between and Shards of Shattering, Shadow of the Erdtree is both a complete guide to how to play and a beautiful artbook with full-page pictures of enemies, landscapes, and weapons. This big book has 352 pages and is likely to sell out quickly, based on how quickly the ones that came before it did.

Do you know a lot about strategy guides? You could read the first two Books of Knowledge. If so, what did you think of them? Leave a comment below and let us know.
