Playtonic games announced this past Monday that every weekday they would reveal a character that’s going to be in Yooka-Laylee up until the games release or until they get bored. Which ever one comes first. Here are the first weeks round up and don’t worry non of these characters are spoiler heavy those are going to be a surprise

IGN shows off more of Yooka-Laylee’s multiplayer this time 4 player racing game called “Kartos Karting”.

It’s nothing ground breaking just looks like a fun mini game to play with friends on a whim. It actually reminds me of of R.C. Pro-AM on the NES which is fitting since that game was made by Rare ware.


Konami just uploaded the 4 minute opening for Super Bomberman R on their youtube channel. It highlights the personalities of the Bomberman brothers and the villain. I don’t know about you guys but I’m actually looking forward to this game.



Yesterday Nintendo’s Japanese youtube channel showcased two new trailers for their upcoming game ARMS. The first trailer was introducing us to all the announced characters and what makes them unique from one another. The other was showcasing the weapons known as “Gloves”.

I’m interested to see more of this game within the coming months.

During the Nintendo Switch event Jirard the Completionist interviewed Miyamoto and Aonuma. During the interview we got some nice information on the game one in particular is that Aonuma re-confirmed that you can go straight to the final boss as soon as you Start the game.



UPDATE: Please read this post by Protodude regarding the footage and more (Footage is early).

Footage removed since it was requested by File Roman from other sites to be lifted

Animation studio Film Roman uploaded a reel for shows that they’ve been working on and one of it is the new Mega Man cartoon created by Man of Action. I don’t know about you guys but with the short glimpse that we saw of this show gives me a better impression than the promo artwork that was shown last year. Hopefully the show will be good.

Thanks to Tanner for the tip (Tweet deleted)!



I know that we’re all looking forward to Sonic Mania and some folks have already preordered the collectors editions. However it seems like the Switch version is currently not avalible at the moment. Your best bet is to preorder it on Game Stop’s website. Is this a sign with things to come with the Nintendo Switch later down the road? Only time will tell

It’s no surprise that Ubisoft wants to expand their IP’s through other medias. We already have a Rabbids cartoon which is currently in it’s 3rd season and the the Assassin’s Creed movie which came out last month. What did surprise me however is the fact we’re getting one based off the upcoming Ghost Recon game.

Titled “War within the Cartel” it will be a 30 minute short film which will serve as a prequel to Wildlands focusing on the villains of the game. It will premiere on Ubisoft’s Twitch channel on February 16 then it will be available to watch on amazon free for amazon prime subscribers.  One other important thing to note is that the executive producer is Roberto Orci who has written films like Transformers(2007), Star Trek(2009) and The Amazing Spider-Man 2(2014).
