5 Things You May Not Know About Splatoon 2

The good people from Nintendo Minute have uploaded an all new video showcasing the upcoming Nintendo Switch game Splatoon 2 and may contain some info that you didn’t know about. The next big Nintendo Switch title is set to release on July 21st and will have a ton of publicity following the game release. Nintendo will be releasing the game, a new pro controller that’s Splatoon 2 themed and the first Nintendo Switch bundle that will have the game packaged. The game has garnered a huge following and I am very eager to see how this one does in terms of retail sales. I am really thinking that Splatoon 2 is going to turn into a mega hit and will shift even more systems for Nintendo.

Check out the video and be sure to let us know what you think in the comments section. Enjoy.

Pokémon GO Has Officially Reached 752 Million Downloads

We all knew that Pokemon GO was popular but 752 million downloads popular? That’s just downright CRAZY! The popular mobile title has reached this tremendous milestone while pulling in over $1.2 billion in revenue. This is outstanding news for the game and has me excited for the future of this series. I think the developers still have a lot to explore with Pokemon Go, so we will have to wait and see what happens in the future.

Are you one of the 752 million people who have downloaded this mega hit?!

TITANFALL 2 – THE WAR GAMES GAMEPLAY TRAILER

It’s all fun-and-games until someone loses a Titan in the latest free DLC pack for Titanfall 2: The War Games. Pilots on the Frontier frequently use simulator pods to train, using life-like recreations of historical battles as combat scenarios. The remastered map “War Games” highlights the civilian shops, city streets, and tall buildings for window-to-window fighting from the Battle of Angel City, as well as the large, open tank garage facilities for hand-to-hand Pilot combat from the Battle of Airbase Sierra. The outskirts of the map feature a clean, VR style perfect for Titan duels, while Pilots are often found running along the bright, interconnected wallrunning routes.

The War Games free DLC pack also includes a free new Live Fire map “Traffic”, featuring a weathered test site where pilot positioning is pitted against mobility across two busy thoroughfares. Dense cover makes every corner a threat, with room for snipers to hide in the back fields.

This DLC pack also includes some key free features, including the addition of a 3rd weapon slot, the permanent addition of Titan Brawl as a game mode, and the latest Holo Pilot execution that will put your shadow boxing skills to the test.

Rocket League For Nintendo Switch Progressing Smoothly

One of the best announcements to come out of Nintendo’s camp during E3 2017 was the fact that Rocket League is headed to the Nintendo Switch. The popular game is phenomenal and seems like a perfect fit for the Switch. Now, the developers are coming out and stating that the game is AHEAD of schedule and development has gone swimmingly. Here is what they had to say regarding the title:

“We’re actually ahead of where we thought we’d be. We didn’t think we would have it running this smooth, this early. For a while we were concerned about whether we’d have anything to show at E3 at all. We have a very talented team at Psyonix. Our engineers have done a lot of hard work to make sure this runs as well as it does already. We’ve already discovered things in the last few weeks that we weren’t aware of a few weeks ago. It’s already made the game perform incredibly. We’re very encouraged.”

I am going to “double dip” on Rocket League and pick it up (again) when it’s released later this year for Nintendo Switch.
