Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is Switch's biggest UK launch yet

And the best launch ever for the series.

Smash Bros. Ultimate has punched its way to the top of the UK charts, with the best ever launch for the series and the best ever launch for any Nintendo Switch game.

In its first weekend of release, Smash Bros. Ultimate sold more physical copies than Zelda, Mario, and even the combined sales of Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee.

It's also the best UK launch for any game in the Smash series - more than 300 per cent higher than the game's Wii U version, and more than 60 per cent higher than Smash Bros. Brawl on Wii.

Square Enix reveals Just Cause 4's post-launch DLC plans

If you're eager to learn what's in store for Just Cause 4 after release (despite not having, you know, even managed to play the base game yet), there's some good news! Square Enix has revealed first details on the post-launch DLC coming to its open-world stunt-action extravaganza in 2019.

Just Cause 4's post-launch DLC will, says Square, consist of three separate content "packs", each with its own distinct theme. For instance, pack one (also known as Dare Devils), is a racing-focussed instalment in which Rico takes on the gangs of the Solís underground, challenging them to "heart stopping death races and rampage rallies".

Just Cause 4's second DLC pack, Demons, takes a turn for the supernatural, and sees Rico face an ancient demonic force that threatens the inhabitants of Solís. Its third and final DLC pack, Danger, apparently introduces new advanced technology, new secret weapons, and specially trained operatives - all thanks to the mysterious arrival of Rico's former employer.

Just Cause 4's latest gameplay video shows off chaotic tornado action

Avalanche Studios has unveiled a brand-new slice of gameplay footage from its upcoming stunt-action spy extravaganza, Just Cause 4 - this one showcasing the game's devastating tornados.

According to Avalanche, these "fully physicalized" tornados are just one of four so-called Extreme Weather simulations in Just Cause 4 (the others including intense lightning storms and blizzards), and are able to "rip through the landscape, send huge pieces of debris spiralling through the air and tear aeroplanes out of the sky".

The latest gameplay video, which you can see below, demonstrates a mission specifically based around pursuing one of these tornadoes, and involves hurtling along in a brand-new vehicle - the heavily armoured Storm Chaser - in order to reach a base that lies in its path.

UPDATE: Square-Enix has just dropped some new details on Just Cause 4 during its E3 showcade.

The new game is set in the South-American country Solis, which is the series' largest playground yet. There are ancient temples and lovely beaches, but there's also a horrible paramilitary group called the Black Hand, run by a lady named Gabriella.
