The UK version of the eShop store has given us a look at how big the file size for Splatoon 2 is going to be. It appears it’ll be about 3.1 GB which is a bit smaller than I expected.

KOEI TECMO has announced a standalone sequel to the Night of Azure, Night of Azure 2: Bride of the New Moon. The game will be coming to PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Steam. It’ll release in the west on October 24th 2017.
Here is KOEI TECMO’s description of the title below.
“Nights of Azure 2: Bride of the New Moon takes place in a fictional, demon-ridden Western European city towards the end of the 19th century. The story focuses on a knight protector named Alushe and her two childhood friends Liliana, a kind-hearted priestess, and Ruhenheid, a holy knight of the Lourdes Order. While guarding Liliana, Alushe is ambushed and killed only to later awaken as an artificial half-demon at the hands of the New Curia, a religious organization with dark ties. In the company of a variety of unlikely allies with their own pasts and agendas, Alushes strong desire to save Liliana gives her the strength to scatter the shadows shrouding the world and motivation to uncover the shocking truth behind the mysterious Queen of the Moon.”

On My Nintendo.com the Nintendo Switch has sold out, in only 8 minutes. The Nintendo Switch has been constantly sold out as fast as possible, whenever it gets into stock again.

Platinum Games recently tweeted this interesting picture of Bayonetta to celebrate their new Japanese Twitter. Featuring Bayonetta on the top and bottom, in her respective looks in Bayonetta 1 and 2. The interesting thing is here, is that the top is blue and the bottom is red, the same colors as a pair of Joycons. It is slightly reaching but we all know Bayonetta 3 will eventually be made for the Nintendo Switch. Now this could be a slight hint at a port of Bayonetta 1 and 2 for the Switch, which will also be welcomed. What do you think? Think I’m having wishful thinking? Or if it’s a little tease for us Bayonetta fans.

The demand for the Nintendo Switch is way ahead of Nintendo’s own expectations. A Nintendo UK PR Spokesperson stated below.
“For Nintendo Switch, our initial plan for the fiscal year ended March 2017 was to ship two million units by the end of March, but we increased production which resulted in shipping 2.74 million units globally.
To take advantage of this favorable momentum, we will continue to bolster our manufacturing facilities and strive to increase production in preparation for the Christmas period, which has been factored into our forecast of shipping 10 million units globally by the end of this fiscal year.”
“Creative director Laurent Malville explains how you can customize your starship on the fly and why the freedom to explore is an important part of Starlink: Battle for Atlas.” Starlink: Battle for Atlas will release in the fall of 2018 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
Splatoon 2 Pre-Orders in Japan have sky rocketed through the rough. With 800K stand alone copies of the game being pre-ordered there. This is not counting worldwide sales, or even the Switch and Spaltoon 2 Bundles in Japan. It seems that Nintendo has a huge title on their hands that has generated a lot of positive buzz. You can find the figures on COMG to see how it compares sales wise.
Splatoon 2 has approximately 800k preorders in Japan (maybe more, maybe less). In a single day should be top selling Switch game in Japan.
