The 1.0 release of Ooblets will include all previous content seen in early access, as well as new locations, new quests, and the long-awaited conclusion to the main storyline. It’s available to pre-order here.
“New friends are plentiful in Ooblets,” starts a description of the game. “Spend your days renovating your farm, raising weird little pals, participating in dance-offs, designing your house, and helping the mayor save Badgetown!”
Earlier this week it was revealed by former Nintendo Of America president Reggie Fils-Aimé that at one point, Nintendo was working on a cross-platform controller designed for people with access needs.
Fils-Aimé said Xbox’s adaptive controller was used “as a jumping-off point to create something that would be platform-agnostic and adaptable by any consumer.”
However, since he left the company in 2019, he doesn’t know if the controller is still in active development. “My hope is that the effort has continued (and that the controller) is launched and shared with consumers as quickly as possible.”
