RIME – DEVELOPER DIARY II VIDEO

Check out a sweet new video showcasing the game RIME. This one is a developer diary and is a pretty interesting watch. RIME is headed to Nintendo Switch, PS4, XBOX One and PC on May 26. In this second developer diary, Tequila Works dives deeply into the artwork and music which shape the RiME experience.

I am in love with the art direction…

Pokemon GO Celebrating Easter

The official Pokémon GO blog has outlined their new Easter event that is taking place from today until Thursday, April 20th. Check out the full details below regarding the fun-filled event:

Lace up your walking shoes and get ready to put a spring in your step—the Pokémon GO Eggstravaganza is nearly here! From 1:00 P.M. PDT on April 13 to 1:00 P.M. PDT on April 20, 2017, a greater variety of Pokémon can now be found in 2 km Eggs, so get cracking and see what you find! Your Egg-venture doesn’t stop there, though—you’ll also earn more Candy for every Egg you hatch!

Throughout this Eggstravaganza, you’ll also level up even faster with double XP! Combine this Egg-cellent bonus with a Lucky Egg, and you’ll earn four times the XP you normally would. To make this Eggstravaganza even sweeter, Lucky Eggs will be 50% off in the in-game shop!

I was going to say “Egg-cellent” but I see it’s already used above…. I will have to figure out another egg-centric pun some other time.

Splatoon 2 Releases July 21st

In case you missed it, Splatoon 2 for Nintendo Switch will be releasing on July 21st. This great news was shared during today’s Nintendo Direct presentation. All new Splatoon-themed Amiibo figures will also be headed to retail shelves on the same day. I cannot wait to hear more about the game and it looks awesome thanks to today’s presentation.

Great news for Nintendo Switch owners indeed.

ARMS Release Date Revealed For Nintendo Switch

During today’s Nintendo Direct show, it was revealed that ARMS for Nintendo Switch will be released on June 16th. The game will be arriving in both North America and Europe on that day. Nintendo also shared that all new Joy Cons will be available when the game launches and they will be neon yellow. Although I am not fond of the color yellow, these special joy cons do look pretty darn cool. Check out the trailer above and let us know if you plan on picking up ARMS for Nintendo Switch.

Looks great to me! Check out the 7 minute video guys.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Nintendo Switch Bundle Incoming

It looks as though Nintendo is preparing their first Nintendo Switch bundle and it will feature Mario Kart 8 Deluxe! The image above was found on a official Russian Nintendo shop and we expect to hear more about this later today. This would be a very wise move for Nintendo and help continue the sales momentum that the Nintendo Switch has garnered thus far.

Only a matter of time before this news become “officially official”. Stay tuned!

STAR WARS: BATTLEFRONT II TRAILER LEAKED

Here is the leaked trailer for Star Wars: Battlefront II. I really enjoyed the first one so I cannot wait to play this when it is released. Since the trailer was leaked, we expect to hear a lot more about the game in the coming days. Star Wars: Battlefront II will be headed to PS4, XBOX One and PC later this year. Be sure to watch the trailer while you still can as it may be taken down from Vimeo soon.
