Floor Kids - more music and features coming, as well as a bonus character

Coming from a Nintendo Life interview with composer Kid Koala...

NL: What's next for Kid Koala, JonJon and Floor Kids?

KK: An 18-city Vinyl Vaudeville Floor Kids Edition tour! It's going to be a great party! I'm bringing a tour bus full of amazing performers and sets! With dancers, puppeteers and turntables, of course! We are bringing custom Floor Kids arcade consoles so people can battle each other on the game before the show starts. We've just added a new update to the Switch version of the game called 'Infinity Mode'.

It's a mode where people can practice their moves, tricks and combos before taking them to battle in one of the venues. In the coming months, we will be porting the game to other platforms like Steam, PS4 and Xbox. I am working on some more music for future updates/features to the Switch version of the game. JonJon is currently animating a bonus character for the game who has 16 new moves people can learn! Stay Tuned!

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze Easter Egg references the old Donkey Kong Country cartoon

Don't watch the video if you don't want the Easter egg spoiled! This is one you should be able to find on your own, but there is a random element to it. If you can't stand not knowing, watch the feature above and bask in the tribute's glory.

Goetia - more footage

The ruins of any village are the silent testament to its final moments. The ruins of Oakmarsh are no different. Their telling silence, the dust blanketing what was once a quiet village near Coventry.

GameTech releases Switch cooling fan

- designed to attach to the back of the Switch dock
- powered by connecting the USB cable to any of the dock’s USB ports
- features a power button to turn it on or off

I would love to know how loud this fan is, and how much of a difference it makes in temperature. I can't imagine too many people out there are worried about Switch cooling to this degree, but maybe I'm wrong.

Death Road to Canada rescheduled for May 15th, 2018 release on Switch

Death Road to Canada is a Randomly Generated Road Trip Simulator. You control and manage a car full of jerks as they explore cities, recruit weird people, argue with each other, and face gigantic swarms of slow zombies. Death Road is built for replay value. Everything is randomized: locations, events, survivor appearances and personalities. There's a different story every time you play, set in a world that doesn't take itself too seriously.

After being delayed due in light of the events in Toronto, the Switch eShop now shows a May 15th, 2018 release date for Death Road to Canada.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Original Soundtrack - more pics

Oh man, it's such a gorgeous set. This is one of those things I want to import, because I know Nintendo will never release it stateside. They might release some version of it, but not the full package Japan is getting. To see more pics of this set and become super jealous, check out the gallery here.

Dillon’s Dead-Heat Breakers - more screens

Check out more here

As a team, defend a post-apocalyptic wild west from an invasion of transforming rock monsters alongside your Mii™ character, Dillon the armadillo, and his squirrel engineer, Russ. Recruit hired gunners to back you up in battle, and then roll into fights and high-speed chases and take down waves of enemies as Dillon—the "Red Flash" himself!
