The latest update for Nintendo’s mobile game Super Mario Run released on Thursday.  Among other additions such as an easy mode and bug fixes, Nintendo added new characters to play and additional content for free players. Along with this update the game is also releasing onto Android for the first time. The app originally released in December of last year and Android users are finally able to play the game. The intention with the simultaneous release of the update and Android version is to bring in players both new and old, but does it succeed?

Super Mario Run’s update adds Red, Blue, Yellow, and Purple Yoshis as playable characters. If these Yoshis are used in the Toad Rally mode, more Toads of the same color will appear. The update also allows free players to access level 1-4, which was previously locked behind the paywall. Clearing this level will give you access to new stages in Toad Rally. The new stages in turn can grant colored Toads that can be turned in for new buildings to place in the player’s kingdom (including unlocking the colored Yoshi characters). Along with this are other various changes, like making Rally Tickets easier to obtain from the bonus game house.

While the ability to play a level for free is convenient for the new Android playerbase, that doesn’t give those that already purchased the game anything new. The update instead focuses on the game’s Toad Rally mode and the rewards for participating in it. The additions to the game’s Tour mode are relatively non-existent. So for those that enjoy playing the Rally mode, this makes the grind for more Toads a little more palatable. Meanwhile those fans of the game that just want more standard Mario platforming goodness from the Tour mode will have to wait for another update.

The new game from Danganronpa’s developers is being published by Aniplex, a Sony company, but it won’t be coming out on PS5

The upcoming game from the creators of the Danganronpa series has found a publisher in Sony subsidiary Aniplex. However, it’s worth noting that it won’t be initially released on the PS5. It is highly likely that The Hundred Line: Last Defense Academy will be released on Sony’s system at a later date, just like Master Detective Archives: Rain Code in October. However, the development team is currently focusing on prioritizing the release of their latest title on the Nintendo Switch and PC.

Described as a strategy game, the title allows players to step into the shoes of teenager Takumi Sumino, who resides in the perpetually secure Tokyo Residential Complex. When monsters suddenly unleash chaos upon the town, Takumi finds himself thrust into the Last Defense Academy. His mission? To protect the school alongside 14 other students for a grueling 100 days.

As one would anticipate, alongside the strategic gameplay, it is crucial to foster strong relationships with your comrades. Moreover, the outcome of the game can vary greatly, with a staggering 100 possible endings contingent upon the choices you make. We will reach out to Aniplex to inquire about the possibility of a PS5 port. However, it is important to note that Aniplex operates independently from PlayStation, as it falls under the Sony Music umbrella.

The photo mode in Alan Wake 2 on PS5 doesn’t hold many surprises

Most new games these days have some kind of photography feature, so it’s hard to remember a time before Photo Modes. Some developers don’t think it’s important for players to be able to take pictures right away, so the feature is added later. One great example of this is Alan Wake 2, which now has Photo Mode thanks to a new update that is now available.

If you look at the trailer above, you can see that you can really get creative with your photos by adding cool borders, overlays, and filters. We always like photo modes, where you can move different lights around in the scene. As the video shows, Remedy really lets you use your imagination with the different colors and lighting props.

There will be an update for Elden Ring next week that sounds pretty important. The patch will come out on June 20, right before Shadow of the Erdtree goes live on June 21. “New features” and “balance adjustments” are what FromSoftware says the update will have.

Luckily, the developer went on to give more information. We went ahead and put them all together in the patch notes below:

New parts of inventory:

  • Items that were just gained will have a “!” next to them
  • There is now a new tab called “Recent Items” that lets you look at items that you just got

What’s new in Summoning Pool?

  • Now, active summoning pools will follow you to NG+
  • The newly added Map Functions Menu now lets you turn on and off individual summoning pools
  • When you use the Small Golden Effigy, it will only choose active Summoning Pools

All new hairstyles:

  • The game now has five more hairstyles to choose from. You can choose them when you make your character, with the Clouded Mirror Stand, or with Rennala’s Rebirth feature.
    FromSoftware also says that the patch will have extra features that aren’t listed here. I hope they’re a pleasant surprise!

Would you like to see any of these changes made? Are you still excited about Shadow of the Erdtree? Get ready by reading the comments below.
