Rainbow Six Siege's latest map features a Rabbids Easter egg

Silly Rabbids...

Rainbow Six Siege may not be on Switch, but everyone knows Rabbids love their Nintendo platforms. That's why we felt this Easter egg was worth showcasing. Looks like the Outback level in Rainbow Six Siege is hiding some familiar characters, so be on the lookout!

Ubisoft details changes and additions for Assassin's Creed III Remastered for Switch

Motion controls, HD Rumble, and more

Believe it or not, Ubisoft is going to implement some Switch-specific features for the upcoming Assassin's Creed III Remastered. Check out the official blurb on included updates below.

This release will include the improved ergonomics and gameplay mechanics and also make use of exclusive Switch features such as game menus accessible via the touch screen interface, Motion Control that ensures an intuitive controlled feeling during distant weapon aiming, and a specific UI design that provides HUD adaptation for different display modes (docked or Handheld gameplay).

While not mentioned in the blurb above, the official Nintendo.com listing also notes that the game will utilize HD Rumble. How well it'll be integrated and what aspects will use it remain to be seen.

Costco is the only North American retailer selling the physical version of Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle "Gold Edition"

Worth a trip to Costco for their pizza alone!

In the case of Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle "Gold Edition," your only option to grab the physical release in the states is through Costco. You can snag your copy right here.

Thor being added to Brawlhalla

No sign of Chris Hemsworth anywhere

The next character making its way to Brawlhalla is none other than Thor: God of Thunder. Thor will be added in the game's next update, but we don't have word on when that's happening. It'll likely be sometime next week, but we'll share official news when it becomes available.

Just Dance 2019 hit with a delay in Japan

Just Delay

Well this is a bit strange. Earlier this week, Ubisoft confirmed Just Dance 2019 for release in Japan, alongside news of a March 20th, 2019 release date. Just a couple days later, and that date has been taken back. Instead of launching on March 20th, 2019, Ubisoft now has the game listed as 'TBD.' We're not quite sure what could have gone wrong with the release date in the span of two days, but I guess it's pretty serious!

The game will be an eShop-only release, and includes the same Western artists and track list that we got.
