Nintendo will release a new update for its mobile runner, Super Mario Run, later this month that adds a new playable character, a new world and a new mode to the Android and iOS game.

Super Mario Run’s Sept. 29 update will add Daisy to the roster of runners, making her the seventh playable character (not counting Yoshi color variations).

Minecraft’s big cross-platform update is here

Image
Minecraft’s Better Together update, which brings cross-platform play to the game for the first time, is now available on numerous devices — although players outside the Microsoft, Apple and Google ecosystems will have to wait.

Microsoft and developer Mojang released the Better Together update today on mobile devices, virtual reality headsets, Windows 10 and Xbox One. On those platforms, where the game runs on Mojang’s Bedrock Engine, it is now known simply as Minecraft — no colon, no “Pocket Edition” or anything.
“Our general rule of thumb is that if a version can play together with the others, it’s called Minecraft,” Mojang said in an FAQ for the Better Together update. Versions of Minecraftthat do not support cross-platform play, such as its original Java-based Mac/PC release and its Wii U version, will retain their “Edition” subtitles.


For now, that will continue to apply to Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition. The Better Together update is coming to Switch, but it’s not ready yet. …

Journey Devs Announce Sky, A Timed iOS Exclusive

Image
Described as a game about "giving", the makers of Journey and Flower unveiled their latest game at the iPhone 8/X reveal.

A multi-platform game that's launching on iOS first, Sky is pitched as a multiplayer "social adventure" game, where players fly above the clouds. It seems pretty straightforward.



On the site, however, thatgamecompany says Sky is "hard to explain". "If you can imagine the delight of visiting a theme park where lasting memories are made, we envision Sky will sometimes feel like that," they wrote.

To explain things a little better, thatgamecompany's Jenova Chen filmed a brief Q&A with Geoff Keighley. In that, he mentioned that "true happiness comes from a person who is genuinely wanting to help others", probably a good indication of what to expect.


Sky is due out on iOS later this year.
