The News At Sixth: 26/04/18

After the lean years of the Wii U, Nintendo are absolutely rolling in it. They’ve now reported 17 million Switches sold in just over a year, 10 million copies of Super Mario Odyssey and some nicely filled coffers to give themselves a bit more financial stability. It makes this the right time for Tatsumi Kimishima to step down as president, having taken on  the mantle in the wake of Satoru Iwata’s untimely death, and pass the baton back to a younger generation.

The future looks really bright for Nintendo, and Shuntaro Furukawa will likely be leading the company for the next decade. Who knows where they will be in 10 years time?


Also today…

Euro Fishing is taking us to Hunter’s Lake with some new DLC. There’s five islands on an 8-acre lake, with a new fish to try and catch, the Roach, alongside ten other species and twenty new boss fish. Des O’Connor, Producer at Dovetail Games, called it an “action-packed lake”.


May is all about Soviet Dream Machines in World of Tanks on console. During the month you’ll be earning points for the event when you place in the top five spots of your team during multiplayer battles. These can then be redeemed for prizes of your own choosing, such as Premium time, Boost Ops and Premium tanks. This includes the new T-29, heavyweight KV-220-2, T-50-2 and ISU-122S.

To be fair, the dream Soviet machine wasn’t exactly going to be a Lada, was it?

And finally, a footballer plays Fortnite!

Since Fortnite emotes have become the taunt/goal celebration of choice, we know that footballers love a bit of Fortnite Battle Royale, but are they actually any good at it? Well, Dele Alli’s going to be streaming this coming Tuesday at 6PM, so if you really, really, really want to know how good he is, you can find out. He’s got his own Twitch channel here.
