Speculation on Pokemon Sword and Shield's launch sales in Japan

How high will it go?

Nintendo fans and Pokemon fans alike are waiting to see just how big the debut is for Pokemon Sword and Shield in Japan. Quite honestly, the figures are all over the place, as no one is sure just how big of an impact fan backlash for the games will have on sales. All we can do is look at the only hard data we have to try and guess where sales might land in the first week.

Over in Japan, COMG rankings show how strong a game is selling prior to launch through preorders. As of right now, Pokemon Sword and Shield sits at a 539 rank, which is nearly double Pokemon: Let's GO's 279 ranking prior to launch. That game managed to move 660k units in its first week, which could mean we'll see Pokemon Sword and Shield floating somewhere around the 1.2 million mark. We'll certainly have our answer soon enough!

Wolfenstein: Youngblood updated to Version 1.0.7

A host of new features

Wolfenstein: Youngblood has received an update, bumping it up to Version 1.0.7. Check out full details on this update below.

Treasure Hunt Missions & Maps

Studying the artifacts from Lab X revealed the location of a second Da’at Yichud chamber inside a reservoir underneath Little Berlin. Apparently, the Nazis found a sealed chest there that supposedly contains an item related to the God Key. So far, they have been unsuccessful in their attempts to open it up. Maybe you’ll have more luck…

After completing the endgame side mission, “Da’at Yichud Artifacts,” you’ll have access to a new sidequest called “Treasure Hunt,” which will take you through two completely new areas – a Parisian reservoir and a secret Nazi bunker – in order to unlock the Da’at Yichud chest. You’ll contend with three new enemy types – the Wurmlochsoldat (Teleporting Übersoldier), the Electrodrohne (Tesla Drone) and the Turmhund (Laserhund with a turret) – in these locations.

Once you’ve finished the “Treasure Hunt” mission your journal will be updated with a list of 20 Treasure Maps in the “Missions” tab that will lead you to artifacts scattered around Paris. Each artifact you track down will reward you with XP, Silver Coins and one Ability Point.

New Abilities & Pep Signals

All three of your ability trees – Mind, Muscle and Power – receive new abilities as part of Update 1.0.7. New abilities like Quick Revive (Mind), Dual Wield Expert (Muscle) and Silent Killer (Power). One of your other new Power abilities is the God Key Sense ability, which you’ll need to help you locate treasures in the world. This ability is automatically granted upon completing the “Da’at Yichud Artifacts” mission, so you won’t have to spend Ability Points to get it.

In addition to these new abilities, you’ll be able to take advantage of two other (id Software title-inspired) Pep Signals. Hammer Rage restores Heavy Weapon ammo for you and your partner, while Quad Damage does exactly what it says on the tin – you and your sister will deal quad damage for four seconds.

New Skins

Update 1.0.7 also comes with a slew of new skins like the Bomber skin, the Chrome Syndrome skin and the Bloodthirst skin for you to wear into battle

Solve a Tropical Mystery in the Newest Theme for CLUE

Grab your swim trunks!

London, November 12th, 2019 - Marmalade Game Studio along with Hasbro, Inc. whisks players away on a wonderful Tropical Mystery in the tenth theme for CLUE/CLUEDO on iOS, Android, Steam and Nintendo Switch.

CLUE/CLUEDO is the quintessential murder mystery classic in which you use your deduction and crime-solving skills to unravel who committed the heinous murder, with which weapon and where. Marmalade Game Studio’s official adaptation for consoles, PC, and mobile captures the undeniable charm of the original and brings it to life effortlessly on your screens.

In the new theme, Tropical Mystery, experience a completely fresh environment with a wholly redesigned board and nine brand-new luxurious rooms on an extravagant mega yacht. As you solve the crime, you move through lavish rooms such as the grand deck with its helipad and exclusive private bar and the enchanting underwater observation room where Dr. Black might still be sleeping with the fish.

Cristina Mereuta, COO at Marmalade Game Studio, says: “With Tropical Mystery we’ve taken the classic board game into a 21st-century setting, capturing the opulent lifestyle of the rich, famous and influential as well as the corruption behind the smoke-screen. However, we're staying true to the spirit of the traditional mystery by having the crime take place in an isolated, confined space, which means the murderer cannot run.”

Six new, mysterious suspects join the classic CLUE/CLUEDO line-up. Scarlett as the corrupt politician, White as the business-minded captain, and Mustard as the ruthless hedge fund manager.

CEO of Marmalade Game Studios, Christopher Willis, adds: “To commemorate the release of the tenth theme, we wanted to give our detectives something special and decided to take them on a glamorous cruise. Our artists brought the luxurious world of billionaire Black and his corrupt consorts to life and we are certain fans of the series will enjoy this much-requested theme.”

Tropical Mystery is the latest gorgeous theme for the popular digital adaptation of CLUE/CLUEDO. It joins a line up well-loved themes such as the Sherlock theme, where players get to tread in the footsteps of the famous English master detective, and Murder Express, which whisks players away on a mysterious train journey to find the truth.

The Tropical Mystery theme is available for CLUE/CLUEDO on Nintendo Switch, Steam, iOS, and Android as part of the Season Pass, which includes access to all previous nine themes, for 34.99 USD/ 39.99 EUR on mobile and Steam, or 9.99 USD/ 9.99 EUR on Nintendo Switch. It is also available as a separate add-on to the game for 6.99 USD/ 7.99 EUR on mobile.
