Nintendo has announced a duo of DLC for its superb Switch (and formerly Wii U) puzzler Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, one of which is paid, and the other free.
If you're a Switch owner with access to at least one friend, family member, or even an unusually accommodating stranger, then Nintendo UK's latest eShop discount bonanza, the (mostly) local-multiplayer-themed Play Together Sale, might be of interest to you.
Nintendo's adorable Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is now available to try on its two new platforms: Nintendo Switch and 3DS.
Nintendo Wii U gem Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is getting a port for both Nintendo Switch and 3DS.
Nintendo has announced another two waves of Amiibo figurines for use with 3DS and Wii U.
The figures include a further batch of characters from Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U, plus the first set of Amiibo figures not centred around Smash.
20th March will see the launch of new Mario, Luigi, Peach, Yoshi, Bowser and Toad figurines with red bases (rather than the usual black).
Wii U-exclusive Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker has launched in 16th place within the New Year UK all-formats chart.
But its launch sales may not be completely representative. Nintendo set the game's official European release date as last Friday, 2nd January, though this was pre-empted by UK retailer GAME to get the title on store shelves before Christmas.
Legitimate copies were therefore floating around from at least the 19th December, although it is unclear to what extent this will have affected UK sales (and it is worth noting that the game has not popped up in the chart before this).
Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is on sale in the UK two weeks before its announced release date.
The Wii U exclusive has an official, Nintendo-announced release date of 2nd January in the UK, but reports indicate GAME is selling it in-store today.
Nintendo Life first reported the news. It appears GAME is shipping out Captain Toad orders, too.
Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker's UK release date is now 2nd January, Nintendo has revealed, a week sooner than the previously-announced 9th January.
The game will feature more than 70 stages, with extra levels unlocked when you complete fiendish optional objectives.
Code Name: STEAM - the new 3DS strategy title from Fire Emblem and Advance Wars developer Intelligent Systems - will meanwhile launch in May 2015.
UPDATE 10/10/14 12:00pm Nintendo has announced a 9th January release date for Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker in Europe.
European Wii U owners will have to wait a little longer to play Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker - the game will now arrive here in January 2015. Other regions still have a "Winter 2014" date.
