As mentioned above, this Friday the 30th Anniversary Mario figure will be released alongside the highly anticipated Super Mario Maker. Earlier this week we have reported how the Modern Color 30th Anniversary Mario figure variant may be released as a standalone in the future. At launch, the figure will only be available as part of the Super Mario Maker Deluxe set.

Later this month more Super Smash Bros line amiibo figures will be released in North America. The Duck Hunt, Mr. Game & Watch and R.O.B. figures will be included in the Retro 3 Pack, which will only be available in GameStop Stores.

Last month the first third party amiibo has been revealed. This amiibo is the Shovel Knight figure, which will be compatible with the excellent platform game Shovel Knight and with future games released by Yacht Club Games on Nintendo Wii U and 3DS. The figure will allow players to unlock exclusive content not available otherwise.

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.

The highly anticipated sequel, Death Stranding 2, is inching closer to its release. Recent reports suggest that the motion capture filming and recording for the game have been successfully completed. Now, the project will enter an “adjustment phase,” where the renowned creator Hideo Kojima will fine-tune every aspect until it meets his exacting standards.

As reported by Famitsu (translated by Automaton, thanks to GamesRadar+), Kojima recently made an appearance on a radio broadcast to discuss the ongoing development of the game. The meticulous director announced the completion of filming and recording for the cast of Death Stranding 2, leaving some uncertainty about whether he was referring to the English or Japanese cast.

Additionally, Kojima mentions that the game is currently going through an “adjustment phase” that he anticipates will last for at least a year. This phase will focus on refining gameplay and visual elements, giving the QA team ample time to address any lingering bugs or glitches. We’ll have to exercise patience and wait until the latter half of 2025 to get our hands on it, at the very least.

Need for Speed Unbound will be supported for a second year, which was confirmed when the game was added to PS Plus Extra earlier this year. The first free content drop based on a previous entry will be available today on PS5. “Drift & Drag” is the theme for Need for Speed Underground’s three new game modes: Drift, Drag, and League. You can get the content for free, and if you want extra body parts and decals, you can buy the Premium Speed Pass.

You’ll be able to use a new handling system made just for drift builds in the new drift mode. There will also be Drift playlists just for PvP and free roam. Up to four players can then test their manual gear shifts, strategic lane changes to avoid obstacles, and perfectly timed nitrous boosts in Drag. After that, League Mode is meant to improve the free-roaming experience for one player by letting you fight other racers head-to-head.

“This feature also introduces a community challenge, requiring collective effort to unlock the final boss and claim a new custom,” a release says. “With rivals showing up regularly and with new leagues on the way, this is where strategy, skill, and community converge, pushing players to earn their place among street racing legends.” It also adds two new cars, the Ford Mustang Dark Horse ’24 and the BMW M3 Competition Touring ’23.

After the Drift & Drag update, between August and October, the Cops vs. Racers content drop comes out. It was inspired by Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit. The creator says that a fourth volume will also come out at the end of 2024. You can still get the game on PS Plus Extra, so you can try out both the base game and any updates that come out after launch.

Pre-orders for Assassin’s Creed Shadows are already showing great promise

The recently announced Assassin’s Creed Shadows from Ubisoft has already garnered significant attention from the gaming community. Pre-orders for the game are showing great promise, even though it was only revealed to the public last week.

According to Tom Henderson of Insider Gaming, he recently shared some positive news on Twitter, based on information from undisclosed sources. The industry insider claims to not have exact figures at the moment but exudes confidence by asserting that those who are well-informed have not expressed any disappointment with them.

Taking place in feudal Japan, a time and location that fans have eagerly anticipated the series to explore since its inception, it’s a development that comes as no shock. The vast open world of Assassin’s Creed Origins certainly indicates that the series is undergoing some notable changes.

The game allows players to strategically locate and engage their designated adversaries in a flexible manner. The inclusion of vantage points in the game serves to assist players in surveying the environment for noteworthy locations, rather than inundating the map with an excessive number of objective markers. The use of light and darkness will have a crucial impact on the stealth mechanics, drawing inspiration from the tactics employed in Splinter Cell.

Have you already pre-ordered Assassin’s Creed: Shadows? Are you eagerly anticipating the series’ long-awaited voyage to Japan? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.
