Image
Smash fans have been waiting ever since he was announced at last years Game Awards to get their first glimpse as Joker in Smash. With months of silence, and direct rumors coming left and right, Nintendo has instead thrown a curve-ball and uploaded a 15 minute trailer out of the blue, detailing Joker, as well as more features in the Version 3.0 update.

The free 3.0 update - which will be available on April 18th in Australia - will bring back the Stage Builder feature that was present in the previous titles, as well as a video editing feature, and an update to the Nintendo Switch Online app, titled Smash World, that will allow players to share and download stages and videos they've created.

Much less known, however, was another leak earlier this year of an early build of Pokemon Red and Green versions, giving us yet another insight of early Gen I Pokemon.

An early sprite sheet released on Japanese TV last year, and another one released in a Japanese manga, gives us a look at some very early Gen I Pokemon sprites.
