Earlier this year Nintendo revealed that the DS hit Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story is getting a remake on 3DS with new content, including the all-new Bowser Jr.'s Journey sub-game. At the time Nintendo stated that it would be a 2019 release, and today they confirmed that we won't have to wait too long. You can look forward to playing it on January 11th, 2019.

Nintendo has previously stated that they aren't giving up on the 3DS yet, and today's Nintendo Direct is proving that commitment. Good-Feel Co. is porting Kirby's Epic Yarn to the handheld, under the title Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn. This 3DS port features all of the stages from the Wii version of the game, but it also includes new abilities, a new "Devilish mode", and new minigames! Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn is scheduled for launch next year.

Shovel Knight is one of the most popular indie games around, and developer Yacht Club Games has kept it relevant with regular updates and expansions. The long-awaited King of Cards expansion was originally planned to launch in the first half of 2018, but it was delayed back in April. Since then we've only had a generic "Late 2018" window for the game, but now we have a concrete release date. Unfortunately, fans will have to wait a little longer.

Yacht Club Games' Shovel Knight is one of the biggest indie success stories of all time with over 2 million sales across numerous platforms. If you bought the Treasure Trove edition of this retro-styled platformer, you have access to all DLC, including the upcoming King of Cards expansion. We thought this would be the last update for Shovel Knight, but apparently that's not the case.

Earlier this week we reported on the impressive fact that Sony has sold over 500 million total PlayStation consoles since the original PlayStation debuted in 1994. That got me thinking about another titan in the industry with an even longer history. Nintendo has officially released sales data for all of its major hardware releases since the Famicom in 1983, so I did a little digging to see what kind of numbers they've piled up over the years and how they compare to Sony's.
