Costume updates for Super Mario Maker are a fairly regular occurrence nowadays, it seems a new one pops up almost every week.

It's not every day that you see a new game release for an old console, but it does happen from time to time.

There are some strategy games that don't focus on swords or fighting, but take a slightly more realistic approach by placing players in a setting that's entirely plausible in the current day. For PC gamers, the 'Tycoon' games did this by placing players in control of a fictional amusement park or zoo or something to that effect...
