It's a little hard to believe, but with the latest update for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Sora from Kingdom Hearts is officially in the game.

New Mario Party Superstars trailer is a blast from the past

While Metroid Dread may be the biggest Switch release of October, the Mario Party fans of the world are probably looking forward to the launch of Mario Party Superstars at the end of the month.
