This is a big week! For one, this weekend marks the anniversary of my birth. Moreover, technology aficionados can preorder the newest iPhone tomorrow. Within our gaming sphere, a few hotly anticipated titles are coming out tomorrow, with other consoles scoring Assassin’s Creed Origins. Nintendo, however, has a super title arriving for their flagship system tomorrow, too…

NINTENDO ESHOP UPDATE – 10/26/2017

Super Mario Odyssey, Mr. Video’s next mainline installment, jumps into stores tomorrow for the Nintendo Switch. Taking cues from Super Mario 64 and Sunshine, this entry harkens back to the sandbox-esque 3D template, evolving it with Mario’s new companion, Cappy. Is Mario’s versatile skillset somehow not enough to collect that Power Moon looming in the distance? Use Cappy’s magic to possess another life form, granting you access to another batch of movement options. The enigmatic talking hat has other uses, too! So, get ready for a journey across the world, filled with hidden secrets and Easter eggs! And, by the way, I’ll be reviewing Odyssey.
