Amazon UK shows The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim launching on Oct. 23rd

We still don't have an official release date for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on Switch, but Amazon UK has just updated their listing with an Oct. 23rd date. We don't know where they're getting this info from, so the date could just be placeholder. If the date is true, Oct. is certainly a busy month for Nintendo fans!

Modder adds two-player feature to Mario Tennis on Virtual Boy

Nintendo originally had plans for multiplayer on the Virtual Boy, but the device didn't last long enough on the market to make that happen. All these years later, a fan has stepped in to take care of things.

Now with a new patch, people can enjoy multiplayer Mario Tennis. All they need is the patch, two Virtual Boys, two copies of Mario Tennis, and a standard Category 5 cable. May the Virtual Boy live on forever!

The Escapists 2 dev talks adding multiplayer, crafting a sequel

A portion of a Gamasutra interview with designer James Witcomb...

“It was essential to retain the sandbox nature of the first game, so we inherited all the ‘traditional’ methods (digging tunnels, chipping through walls, switching off generators to disable electric fences etc.) that returning players would be familiar with, but we also wanted to add an entirely new type of escape to the game.

The Escapists was a big success, and seeing the fans response to the game and subsequent DLC was amazing. It very quickly became clear that fans really wanted multiplayer, but the only way we could get multiplayer to work was to re-write many of the game systems. This presented us with the opportunity to not only add multiplayer, but to work with The Escapists' creator Chris Davis to iron out issues with the first game, and show our gratitude to the community by taking on board their ideas and feedback via community surveys prior to starting development.”

Etsy - Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Master Sword

This is a prop sword inspired by the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It is cast as one piece from epoxy resin and fiberglass, then nicks and cuts are carved into the blade and hilt. The sword is hand painted with metallic blue, silver, and gold paint and is given a faux rust finish. The grip is wrapped in a "weathered" faux suede cloth.
The edges of the gold jewel on the hilt and the hand guard have Hylian runes carved into them. The Triforce is etched into the blade.

Due to the handmade nature of this sword, each piece is unique. While similar, the sword that you receive will be different than the one in the pictures.

This Master Sword is designed after the rusted sword seen in the latest Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild trailer. While it can be used as a costume prop, it's more intended to be a display piece.

Because of its construction, this Master Sword is 100% "convention safe" meaning you can take it to any convention and it should pass weapons check. It has no metal in its construction, no sharp edges and a dull tip. Check the convention's rules to be sure though!
This sword NOT intended for LARP or any real combat.
This is for the sword only, no sheath.

Total Length: 40
Blade Length: 30 inches
Hilt width (measured at the tips of the "wings"): 8.75 inches
Weight: approx 1.5 lbs
