Developer Saber Interactive has revealed that NBA Playground is coming to Nintendo Switch eShop in May! The surprise announcement caught myself off guard and was a welcomed surprise to say the least. The gameplay for NBA Playgrounds is very reminiscent of NBA Jam and offers a number of different game modes. Players will be able to be played solo, local-multiplayer, or “against the world” online. NBA Playgrounds will feature every single NBA team.

Persona 5 is upon us and you can watch the launch trailer for the popular game above. Persona 5 is a game about the internal and external conflicts of a group of troubled youth who live dual lives. They have the typically ordinary day-to-day of a Tokyo high-schooler – attending class, after school activities and part-time jobs. But they also undertake fantastical adventures by using otherworldly powers to enter the hearts of people. Their power comes from the Persona, the Jungian concept of the “self;” the game’s heroes realize that society forces people to wear masks to protect their inner vulnerabilities, and by literally ripping off their protective mask and confronting their inner selves do the heroes awaken their inner power, and use it to strive to help those in need. Ultimately, the group of Phantom Thieves seeks to change their day-to-day world to match their perception and see through the masks modern-day society wears.
From what I have read thus far, this game is SUPURB. Check out the trailer and let us know if Persona 5 is a game that YOU want.

Blizzard has announced that they would be open to bringing their popular, online trading card game to Nintendo Switch. Hearthstone senior game designers Mike Donais and Matt Place said that since the game is on tablets and phones a Nintendo Switch version of the card title would work well. Here is what they had to say:
“Hearthstone is available on iPads and phones, so it’s a good discussion worth having.”
IF you have never played the game, it’s outstanding! This would be HUGE news for Nintendo Switch if the title does become available. More as it develops.
Pokemon Go players caught over 589 Million Magikarp during the gams first water-themed event. Players who logged in enjoyed a healthy number of water based Pokemon and it looks as though Magikarp was in high demand. I only was able to catch a couple of Marikarp myself, I did catch a number of new water-type Pokemon and I am excited for more events like this in the future.
