Nintendo insider Emily Rogers is reporting that Nintendo plans to release a Super Smash Bros title this year for the Nintendo Switch console. The game will reportedly be released in time for the Holiday season and will be announced in the near future. This seems like a perfect game to take advantage of the upcoming online system for the Switch but we will have to wait a little longer to hear more. This news comes from a post on the popular video game forums reset era. Here is the quote from the forum:
I can only confirm two things:
1. A Smash Bros title will be announced and released for Switch later this year.
2. They added brand new content and re-worked some of the existing Wii U/3DS content.
The good people over at Polygon have recently published a very interesting article which you can check out for yourself, right here. In the article, they discuss the troubles that XBOX One has been facing (mainly its lack of exclusive games compared to the competition) and have heard that future acquisitions may be in the companies future. One of those companies that have been rumored is in fact EA. Check out a blurb from the article below:
Some of the names being thrown around as possible acquisitions by Microsoft are, frankly, astounding, even unthinkable. But the fact that they are doing the rounds is instructive. The most recent one we heard (from a reliable source close to Microsoft) was, in fact, Electronic Arts. We also heard a whisper about Valve and about Korean outfit PUBG Corp., which Microsoft last year signed to a timed exclusive for its hit survival shooter, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.
“Because of where we are in the lifecycle of all these things, I’m expecting to hear Microsoft announce something very, very shortly,” said van Dreunen.
Things would get very interesting to say the least if something like this happens. As always, we will keep you informed if anything happens. More as it develops.
Remember when I said that Bravely Default could be headed to Nintendo Switch? Well, an image has appeared on Twitter that has once again added fuel to this fire… The official Bravely Default Twitter account has possibly teased Bravely Default for the Nintendo Switch in the image above. The picture depicts a character from the series with neon joy cons in hand. Only time will tell, but we will hopefully hear something soon…
This week, Sony unleashed all sorts of great content and showcased a massive amount of games that are headed to the PS4. There was truly something for everyone and had me wondering… What in the world will Sony show at this years PSX?! Check out my latest YouTube video and be sure to subscribe to the channel.
Could Pokken Tournament Be Coming to Switch? Well that seems to be the latest rumor around the internet today. According to Japanese retailer Sinobi, they have listed an arcade fighting stick for the Nintendo Switch and mentioned that the accessory is compatible with the Pokken Tournament. However it has since been noted that the post has been edited and that the reference made to Pokken Tournament has been removed. The arcade version of the game has added a number of characters so a “deluxe” version of the title would make a lot of sense.
E3 2017 is right around the corner so I am sure we will hear something soon. What do you guys think?
With E3 2017 right around the corner I revisit a patent that Sony made back in February showcasing a Nintendo switch like device. I think they might announce new hardware at this years E3 show!! Do you?
Dr. Serkan Toto is reporting that Resident Evil 7 is in development and will indeed be showcased during E3 2016. The game is apparently being worked on by Jordan Amaro, a designer who previously worked on Metal Gear Solid V and P. T. at Kojima Productions. Dr. Toto also reports that Resident Evil 7 will take the series back to its roots so we will be interested to see exactly what that means…
E3 2016 is right around the corner and we will have all the news for you right here. Stay tuned.
Has the PS4 Neo launch time been leaked? Well, according to a press release from French video game distributor Innelec Multimedia, the new PS4 (codenamed Neo) will launch before October of this year. This points to a possible September release for the upgraded PS4 and we fully expect to hear more at E3 next month. The press release from Innelec stated that the “Neo 4K” (as the company refers to it) will arrive at some point in the first half of the company’s fiscal year, which lasts from April – September 2016.
Since this was released, the company has back-peddled a bit on the statement but may have let the cat out of the bag… More as it develops.
Here’s a nice juicy rumor for everyone to chew on… Apparently the much anticipated (and much delayed) Beyond Good and Evil 2 is indeed headed to Nintendo’s next system, Nintendo NX. According to this new rumor, Nintendo has stepped in and is helping fund the project, similar to what they did for Bayonetta 2.
The rumour was submitted to Destructoid, with an initial source as Alexander Maier, a writer for Dual Pixels that published Geno’s NX rumours last weekend. Alexander was provided with a large document from Geno that was then passed on to Destructoid to assess. Destructoid also reached out to a second source who gave similar information with some of the bullet pointed information crossing over the two sources.
This would be a GIANT win for Nintendo. Stay tuned for more news regarding NX rumors.
