It has not even been one week since its announcement, and Super Mario Odyssey's reveal trailer has already been reasonably accurately recreated within the confines of Liberty City in Grand Theft Auto IV. Okay, maybe accurate is the wrong word to use for what YouTuber CrowbCat has created, but it is definitely a pretty entertaining video to watch regardless of that fact.

When Nintendo originally revealed the Switch and its Joy-Con controllers, fans noticed that the latter looked sort of like a puppy, especially when the Joy-Cons were resting within the Joy-Con Grip.

It seems that the Nintendo Switch is not the only Nintendo console getting some love from Atlus. The Japanese Shin Megami Tensei website is currently teasing a mysterious future announcement for the 3DS as well. What's more, the webpage indicating this also prominently features a very interesting 25th anniversary symbol which contains both the Roman numerals of one, two, three, and four and the respective year for each numbered SMT game's release.

This may come as a disappointment, but there's always room for even more DLC, right?

Have you ever stopped to think about Pokémon evolutions? There are some really neat designs out there, but there are also some that don't make a lot of sense. For example, why does Dragonair turn yellow when it evolves into Dragonite? How does Snorunt turn into the snowball Glalie?
