Tencent bringing more indie and third-party games to Switch in China, including a few Ubisoft releases

Switch's library in China is starting to grow

The total number of Switch games that have been officially released in China since the console's launch in the region in December 2019 is extraordinarily low. Tencent, the company responsible for helping to bring the system to the Chinese market, has now updated the "future release" section on their official website with some more indie and third-party titles apparently set for an upcoming launch in China.

Only one game on the list, Neon Abyss, has received a scheduled release period, and will be launching on the Nintendo eShop in China sometime in Summer 2020.

Seven total indie games have been added to Tencent's website, alongside three Ubisoft titles (a China exclusive Rabbids party game, Rayman Legends, and Just Dance 2020), and one release from SNK (Samurai Shodown).

Trials Rising Apr. 2020 patch now live

Make sure to update your game

Version 1.0.11 of Trials Rising has gone live for all platforms including Nintendo Switch. Introducing Bike Leaderboards, the ability to disable ghosts, and plenty of other fixes and improvements, check out the full patch notes from Ubisoft below.

BIKE LEADERBOARDS

Are you an apex Alpaca rider? Maybe you dominate on the Donkey. With the release of this patch, bike curious players will be able to compete across Trials Rising’s world of tracks on any available bike and save their time to bike-specific leaderboards. Bike leaderboards will be available on in-game Trials Tracks, Stadium Finals & Ninja Tracks for any bike that is available to ride. Bike leaderboards are accessed from track leaderboards under the BIKE tab. Bike leaderboards will only start to record entries after the patch is released, times made on different bikes prior to the patch will not appear on bike leaderboards.

DISABLE GHOSTS

The thrill of competition is a big part of Trials Rising but sometimes you might just want to have some alone time on the track. With the new Disable Ghost option found in the Game Options menu, you can remove most ghosts from the single-player experience of Trials Rising. No ghosts on tracks, in loading screens or the results screens. There are a few exceptions: ghosts will still appear when playing Challengers, completing Contracts that require beating a ghost and in Stadium Finals.

SKIP IT: SKIP HEAT & SKIP SONG

Sometimes you’re just not feeling it and want to move on to the next. If we’re talking about tracks in private multiplayer or songs on the soundtrack we’ve got two new options for you. In Private Multiplayer matches the host can skip the current track with the restart button and move on to the next track in the playlist.

At nearly any point in the game, it’s also now possible to skip the current song playing. This can be done with a push of a button or through the pause menu. This feature also includes a new UI element that displays the name of the current song in the upper right corner of the screen. This element appears briefly when a new song starts and when first loading a new track.

GIGACRATE

The collection of bike & rider gear available in Gear Crates is getting a lot larger. Up until now, Gear Crates have included around 25-30 customization items. The new gigafied Gear Crates have 167 different items to potentially pull from when opened.

OTHER FIXES & IMPROVEMENTS

Turn the Tables with UNO Flip!, New Add-On Content for the UNO Video Game, Available Now

No, you

Today, Ubisoft announced that UNO Flip!™, the latest DLC for UNO® will turn the well-known card game rules upside down as it releases for $4.99 on PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, the Xbox One family of devices including the Xbox One X, Windows PC and Nintendo Switch™ system. UNO Flip! is the UNO card game you know with an exciting new twist: a double-sided deck that gives classic gameplay a competitive edge.

Switch between the light and the dark sides by playing the brand-new Flip card and get ready to shake things up with unique action cards:

Flip Card – The Flip card sparks the fun in UNO Flip! as everything inverts once it’s played, including the discard pile, the draw pile and each player’s hand.

Draw One Card – When this card is played, the next player must draw one card and miss their turn.

Wild Draw Two Card – Play this card to choose the color that continues to play and make the next player draw two cards and lose their turn.

Draw Five Card – When this card is played, the next player must draw five cards and miss their turn.

Skip Everyone Card – This card can swing games as it skips everyone in line and gives the player who placed it an extra turn.
Wild Draw Color Card – Once this card is in play, the player chooses a color for the next player to draw. No matter how many cards it takes, the next player must keep drawing until they find the chosen color, and they also lose their turn.

For those who want to draw even more, UNO Ultimate Edition is bundled with UNO and UNO Flip! and includes UNO Just Dance®, Rayman®, Rabbids® and winter themes for $14.99. These variations remix the fun in different ways by adding new theme cards that require different strategies for players to win.

In UNO, players take turns matching a card in their hand with the color or number card shown on the top of the deck. In addition to classic UNO gameplay, the UNO video game will also have a variety of online and social features. Players will have the ability to drop in and out of game as well as connect with family and friends using voice and video chat. To up the ante, players who strategize and stack their way to winning matches can snag a spot on weekly and global leaderboards. Additionally, the UNO video game will give players interactive tutorials, in-game tips and the display of house rules before every match.

Announced back at E3 2019, Ubisoft's upcoming team PvP sports game was revealed only for a release on PC.

The PC release is planned for later in 2020, but information is limited on when we can expect the Switch version. Hopefully the Switch port doesn't suffer a similar fate as Ubisoft's STEEP.

Ubisoft’s #JustDanceMemories campaign raises £60,000 for Alzheimer's Research UK

Dancing for donations

We’re excited to announce that our partnership with Ubisoft, the creator and publisher of Just Dance, has raised an incredible £60,000 for life-changing dementia research – double the original target!

Alzheimer's Research UK joined forces with Ubisoft to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of Just Dance and support our vital work.

People were asked to share an inspiring film on social media, which features Alzheimer's Research UK supporter Lynne, and her mam Anne. The film shows how dance still connects the pair, despite Anne being in the late stages of Alzheimer’s disease.

Ubisoft pledged to donate £1 for every share, retweet or comment on the film and for every use of the campaign’s hashtag #JustDanceMemories.

Thanks to you and the incredible support across social media, Ubisoft doubled its commitment from £30,000 to £60,000.
