Amiibo

Two months ago two new amiibo figures have been released in all regions to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the classic platform game Super Mario Bros. Of the two variants released, the Modern Color variant was only available in North America as part of a Super Mario Maker bundle which included a copy of the Wii U exclusive game and the amiibo. A few hours ago it’s finally been confirmed when the amiibo will become available for purchase outside the bundle.

A few hours ago a new Walmart flyer has surfaced online, revealing that the 30th Anniversary Modern Colo Mario figure will be available exclusively by Walmart stores in North America. The flyer also confirmed that the figure will become available for purchase on November 26th from 6:00 PM. You can check out the flyer right below.

Earlier this week Nintendo has revealed a new Animal Crossing amiibo diorama which will be released in Japan alongside Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival. The diorama, which will allow collectors to display their Animal Crosssing amiibo figures, will be given for free to those who purchase Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival and 2 amiibo figures or Animal Crossing: Amiibo festival, 1 figure and 1 pack of amiibo cards in Japan. We currently have no news if this diorama will ever be made available outside Japan.

Before the end of the month, more figures are going to be released in North America. This Sunday, November 15th, the Mega Yarn Yoshi figure will become available for purchase. A few days before, on November 13th, the Mewtwo figure will also become available for purchase.

New World Interactive, the developer of the Insurgency series of tactical first-person shooters, has laid off an unknown number of employees as part of Embracer Group’s comprehensive restructuring plan.

Saber Interactive, which acquired New World in 2020, told Eurogamer that the studio had not closed. However, it confirmed an unknown number of layoffs.

Embracer says it is “actively working to fill existing open roles” with impacted employees and will provide severance packages. “Saber also assures that development will continue on Insurgency: Sandstorm, as well as on unannounced future projects,” it said.

Over 900 employees were laid off in an “agonizing” but “necessary” process. As always, we hope all victims recover.

Sony wants non-console owners to access its content beyond its PlayStation-walled garden. This strategy has been slowly implemented: the company has commissioned TV and movie adaptations of its biggest franchises, ported select software to the PC, and launched a mobile gaming division.

In an interview with Nikkei, head Hideaki Nishino explained how this strategy can boost console sales: We want to use movies and dramas to get non-gamers to try PlayStation games. Sales of The Last of Us increased during the live-action drama.

When HBO’s adaptation aired, our The Last of Us content skyrocketed, so we can understand its impact. As a PlayStation fan site, we support this strategy because we want to reach as many people as possible, so if Sony can appeal to non-console owners, that’s a win-win.

More PlayStation users is better, in our opinion.

PowerWash Simulator is one of this month’s PS Plus Essentials, but before you start scrubbing, check out the PS Store. The game has been well supported on PS5 and PS4 with free DLC packs based on Square Enix titles since its release at the start of the year.

Free Final Fantasy VII and Tomb Raider expansions let you clean Croft Manor and Seventh Heaven. The free DLC packs add 10 levels, and the paid ones add more.

Two more Back to the Future and SpongeBob SquarePants expansions cost £6.49 or $7.99 each. You can then scrub the Bikini Bottom and the DeLorean.

The Midgar Special Pack for PowerWash Simulator was another reason to use the cleaning kit. “It doesn’t add much, but getting close to FF7’s props and environments is fun. It offers a fresh take on the beloved title that will please both sides of this collaboration.”
