  1. Last month, Devil May Cry 5 director Hideaki Itsuno and producer Matt Walker said how they would "love" to see the popular hack and slash series on the Nintendo Switch. Now, in a recent interview with German magazine M!, Itsuno said the latest game in the Devil May Cry series would be considered for the Switch if Capcom's April release Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen "sells well" on the platform. Below is the translation: As for why Devil May Cry 5 wasn't announced for Nintendo's hybrid system in the first place, it's because development began before the team had access to Switch development kits.

  2. Ubisoft's online shooter sequel The Division 2 is mere days away from its March 15th launch now, but PS4 owners might want to prepare themselves for a bit of an extended wait before play can commence; the game's day one update on PS4 will weigh in at a mammoth 90GB. That's according to a new official support page (as spotted by Game Informer) in which Ubisoft warns PS4 players who've opted to purchase The Division 2's physical edition that they should expect an 88-92GB download on launch day. "If you purchased a physical copy of the game, begin installing from the disc," it explains. "Provided you are online, your console will simultaneously download Title Update 1 while you install it." Ubisoft also notes that the the final HDD install size on PS4 will be between 88-92GB, for both the digital and disc versions. In other words, it sounds like physical owners are essentially being asked to download the entire game from scratch when release day comes. It's obviously a whopper of a download (even Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's 50GB launch day patch, one of the larger in recent memory, looks positively dainty in comparison) although it's not entirely clear why. According to Ubisoft's same support page, Xbox One and PC players should "expect a 48-52GB download" on launch day, meaning that the PlayStation 4 update is, for some reason, almost twice the size of other versions. All of which is to say that you probably shouldn't bank on playing The Division 2 soon after launch if you've plumped for the physical release, regardless of platform. And if you're on PlayStation 4, you'll have plenty of time to, say, read a book or learn a language or transcend entirely to another plane, while you wait for your download to complete. SOURCE
  3. LO ANGELES, CA – Crowds gathered outside of the Los Angeles Supreme store earlier this afternoon in anticipation for the skateboarding and streetwear brand’s latest release in collaboration with anime series Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid. The collaboration features a limited run of various clothing and accessories incorporating Dragon Maid characters with the iconic Supreme box logo. Fans began lining up hours in advance in hopes of being among the first to partake in the launch. Unlike previous releases, the launch not only attracted the usual crowd of brand enthusiasts but fans of the Dragon Maid anime as well. Supreme collectors and so called “hypebeasts” found themselves beaten to the punch as anime fans began lining up hours before others had even arrived. “I’ve been to Anime Expo before so it’s actually quite a relief to only have to wait for 12 hours before getting the opportunity to buy some merch,” stated anime fan Brian Denmond who had been in line since the night before. “Normally you have to line up for a badge before you can even begin to queue for the merchant hall.” “I’m not sure what this Supreme thing is but once I heard from my Discord group that there were going to be Kanna shirts I knew I had to get down here,” another young man near the beginning of the line told our correspondent. Others in line did not provide such positive feedback, feeling cheated by the sudden influx of anime fans that had taken over the front portion of the line. “This is total bull,” said Nathan Dallas dressed in the finest name brands his parents’ money could buy. “I’m always here for the latest drop, but at this rate those damn weebs are going to grab all the good shit before I even get up there.” When the door finally opened, all merchandise was reportedly sold out within 15 minutes. Those who had been lucky enough to make a purchase were last seen heading towards the Los Angeles Convention Center to begin saving their spot for Anime Expo. SOURCE
  4. Sony Interactive Entertainment has officially ended the production of PS Vita in Japan. The news comes via the handheld console’s official website, where the two remaining SKUs – the PCH-2000 ZA11 and PCH-2000 ZA23 – both now display “shipments ended.” Sony previously confirmed they’d be ending the manufacturing of the handheld, in 2019. While a date for when production ends isn’t confirmed, when Sony announced the end of PS3 production, they officially stopped production two months later. The PS Vita was originally launched back in 2011. SOURCE
  5. Google’s Threat Analysis group has disclosed two 0-day vulnerabalities affecting Google Chrome and Windows 7 PCs yesterday (via Ars Technica). Google said it has already patched Chrome to remediate the vulnerability on March 1, and it’s recommending users to make sure that they have already updated the web browser to version 72.0.3626.121 or newer. As for the Windows 7 vulnerability, Google says that it already reported it to Microsoft but had to reveal it yesterday after the end of its to a 90-day disclosure deadline. The Redmond giant is said to already be working on a fix, but according to Google this vulnerability is already being exploited in targeted attacks. As Microsoft has yet to announce when it will fix this vulnerability, Google is recommending Windows 7 users to upgrade their PCs to Windows 10. Microsoft announced yesterday that the new OS is now running on 800 million devices worldwide, but 43.93% of Windows users were still using Windows 7 in March according to Netmarketshare. MY NOTE: Just because this is currently only being used against 32 bit versions of Windows 7 does not mean that the 64 bit version is safe. No where does anyone mention that windows 7 64bit is safe either. Just that it is has not being exploited on the 64bit version yet. It's just a matter of time. Microsoft has not even announced a fix yet. PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD UPDATE TO WINDOWS 10. ITS FREE. SOURCE
  6. Looks like June 15th came early! A new version of Atmosphère has just been released, 0.8.5 to be precise, which brings several new features an improvements to the table. First of all, there's the previously mentioned cheat functionality: a new system module which uses a format compatible with SX OS's cheats while also bug fixing and improving it. The implementation is fully documented in the repo and users are recommended to read through it to get a better understanding on how to use it. The system module also supports interfacing itself with homebrew apps and, if you're a developer and want to make use of it, you may want to read Atmosphère's accompanying dmnt sysmodule documentation aswell. Other additions include being able to override content on a per-title basis, separately from HBL's override key, added content headers in fusee-secondary (which primarily affects and enhances Hekate and other bootloaders that do not use fusee-primary) and a bug fixes for AMS' fatal screen on firmwares 1.0.0-2.3.0 and prodinfo backups. As usual, you can read the full changelog below: GitHub Download SOURCE
  7. One of the earliest Nintendo 64 titles to truly dazzle gamers was Turok: Dinosaur Hunter. At a time when many FPS titles still employed 2D sprites, this full-3D shooter really impressed and was arguably something of a killer app for the console. It has now been confirmed that the game - alongside its sequel, Turok 2: Seeds of Evil - will be coming to the Switch. The original Turok will launch on March 18th for $19.99. Release details for Turok 2 have yet to be confirmed. SOURCE
  8. Nintendo has unveiled the next mainline Pokemon games. Titled both Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield, the eighth generation Pokemon games are coming to the Nintendo Switch sometime later in 2019. Featured above, you can view the announcement trailer for the games. Nintendo Blurb: The games feature a trio of new starters: Grookey: The Chimp Pokémon! This mischievous Pokémon is full of boundless curiosity. Scorbunny The Rabbit Pokémon! Scorbunny is always running about, bursting with energy. Sobble The Water Lizard Pokémon! Sobble is a bit timid, shooting out attacks as it hides itself in the water. The game is naturally set in a new region as well: Galar. Nintendo describes Galar as a land “filled with idyllic countryside” and “contemporary cities,” as well as “vast plains and snow-covered mountains.” There’s also clearly some European-inspired architecture. Here’s some more screenshots: SOURCE
  9. Nintendo and Platinum Games have announced Astral Chain. The new action game is coming to Nintendo Switch on August 30th of this year. Featured above, you can view the announcement trailer for the game.
  10. Ever since Nintendo revealed Joker from Persona 5 would be added to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as a playable DLC fighter, there have been ongoing rumours about the Persona series coming to the Switch. Atlus fueled speculation when it registered multiple domains last December and then confirmed the existence of Persona 5 R – also known as "P5R" – with a teaser trailer and official website launch in December. In the latest development, a reliable leaker, who previously spoke about Persona 5 R ahead of its reveal, has taken to Twitter to reassure Persona fans a Switch release is happening. According to Mr. Ohya, who goes by the Twitter handle @JaridOhya, Atlus will release "Persona 5 S" on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 this fall: He didn't stop there, though, suggesting all would be revealed before the month of May: What do you think about this rumour? Do you think the latest entry in Persona's mainline series will appear on the Switch in the near future? SOURCE
  11. A sandwich, pasta, French fries: These are all items that might reasonably be improved by adding some cheese. Notice that nowhere on that list did you see an entry for “babies.” To be clear, there is no benefit, neither nutritional nor tastewise, to adding cheese to a baby. And yet, a series of videos that’s gaining attention on Twitter suggests that cheese makes a great complement to any baby. Babies are defenseless creatures who can’t protect themselves when cheese is thrown in their direction and sometimes can’t figure out how to remove the cheese, which leaves them suspended in a cheesy limbo state until an adult steps in to provide assistance. This, you might argue, is what makes “cheesing” great, but doesn’t that seem a little easy? It’s like dunking on a baby. Is it also funny when babies get hit by anvils or conked on the head or fall off cliffs or end up in any Wile E. Coyote–like situation? It is kind of funny when babies fall down, but not if they actually get hurt: No one wants to see a baby in distress. And cheesing a baby is a quick recipe for exactly that. To review: Adding cheese to food? Often a great idea! Adding cheese to a baby? Don’t do it! SOURCE
  12. KYOTO, Japan — Nintendo has cancelled their new title Pokemon Let’s Go, Jynx! mere moments after announcing the game during a Pokémon Direct broadcast earlier this morning, responding to immediate and widespread controversy online. The game, which was touted as an extended edition of the core gameplay found in Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!, promised gamers the opportunity to re-experience the Kanto region accompanied by the classic Pokémon Jynx, who fans on social media were quick to point out is essentially a racist caricature. The debacle arrives on the heels of similar PR blunders by companies such as Gucci and Burberry, who recently apologized for clothing items resembling black face and noose imagery, respectively. “Hoooooooo boy,” explained Game Freak CEO Satoshi Tajiri to reporters in an immediate follow-up after the conclusion of the announcement broadcast. “I mean obviously now in retrospect, it makes a lot of sense why people are mad. We apologize for insensitively highlighting this unfortunate part of our company’s history. We also apologize for worsening the matter by reverting Jynx to her original, even more offensive color scheme in an effort to please die hard fans of the original games. Although we will not be moving forward with this entry in the series, we hope fans will still look forward to the planned companion title, Pokémon: Let’s Go, Electric Soldier Porygon!” At press time, Nintendo announced the next 20 or so Pokemon would just be “chairs or keys or other household items so please, for the love of God, do not worry.” SOURCE
  13. In its current state, this Android port seems to have the basics working just fine except GPU acceleration which is being worked on (image from video below) For quite a while, it’s been possible to run Linux on fusee-gelee vulnerable Nintendo Switch consoles which gives you a fully-fledged browser, ability to use emulators like Dolphin (with limited success) and much more. Unfortunately, desktop Linux distributions aren’t really meant for use with 7-inch tablets so the UI can get a bit clunky but now, Android got ported to the Switch which may make running Linux on your device much more appealing! Android on the Nintendo Switch and its current state Initial hints that work was underway on getting Android to run on the Switch came in the form of a tweet from natinusala, a developer that worked a lot on the Switch’s RetroArch port, on February 12 showing a Switch booting (or trying to, anyway) Android. Fast-forwarding a little under two weeks, work on porting Android to the Switch reached pretty advanced stages and to share the progress, Max Keller (@langer_hans) published a video (below) of a Nintendo Switch running Android Q (which looks quite similar to Android Pie), the upcoming version of Android and successor to Pie (9.0)! As of right now, this Android port which is apparently a joint effort between Max Keller and ByLaws (Billy Laws) is still work-in-progress and from the video, it seems to be at the current stage: Framebuffer output and the touchscreen input are working fine WiFi and Bluetooth are supported so connecting to the Internet and browsing is possible (and demonstrated in the video as well) The joycons function which could open quite a few possibilities relating to Android gaming Performance isn’t too great because the graphics acceleration isn’t working since the GPU drivers are functioning as they should. Thankfully, this problem is being worked on so it may only be a short while before Android starts running smoothly on the Switch! Some things like SDCard support and rotation support weren’t demonstrated in the video or mentioned in any tweet so there’s no confirmation about their status as of yet If you weren’t following Switch Linux news, the infamous battery bug was fixed last year so you needn’t worry about that. Right now, there is no download link available for Android on the Switch and no ETA has been given either. However, there may be a decent chance of a release happening in the foreseeable future especially if the GPU driver issue is fixed. SOURCE
  14. As so often happens, it seems there were minor regional differences between the Nintendo Direct broadcasts for the east and west. Japanese fans were treated to games missing from the North American and European versions. First up is Dragon Quest Rivals, a free download first released on mobile back in 2017. It's an online card-based battler in the Hearthstone mould with characters from across the RPG series and cross-play between Switch and mobile. Next is a cutesy baseball game from Konami, Jikkyuu Powerful Pro Baseball, launching this year. Part of a long-running series, it's arguably most notable for being from Konami - they still make games, see! - but we're not the biggest baseball fans. Four-player co-op sounds interesting, though, if you like a spot of rounders. Finally we have a crossover, Doraemon: Nobita’s Story of Seasons, and we're a bit jealous. It appears to mix classic Harvest Moon-style gameplay with the cast of Doraemon in a beautiful watercolour world. Check out the trailer: Looks lovely, no? Hopefully we'll get some information about a western release soon SOURCE
  15. Ubisoft has confirmed the release date for Assassin’s Creed III Remastered on Nintendo Switch. The newly remastered threequel will launch for the hybrid console on May 21st. The game includes all prior DLC, Assassin’s Creed Liberation, and features Motion Aiming and touch input. Curiously, prior announcements of the game stated it would be launching on May 29th. We will keep you updated if other versions of the game have also had their release date moved forward. SOURCE
  16. Nintendo has announced Rune Factory 5 for Nintendo Switch. Well that's it. What did you expect? It's Nintendo. All they did was show this picture ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  17. Mass entertainment company Disney made an informal industry announcement yesterday that it had begun plans to produce a series of live action adaptations of classic Studio Ghibli films. With live action versions of Dumbo, Aladdin, and Lion King already scheduled for release in just 2019 alone, Disney stated it had started to look into other properties to also give the live action treatment. Disney is already known to have been a major distributor of Studio Ghibli movies throughout North America so the move was seen as the next logical step for the company as is begins to run out of movies of its own to convert. No official statement was given as to which Ghibli films were being considered for a live action remake although rumors pointed to Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle, and My Neighbor Totoro as likely candidates. Disney did state that the release would feature “major Hollywood talent” with insider leaks revealing that Will Smith had already been contacted for a potential role. Major director talent from industry veterans James Cameron and Tim Burton was also rumored to be on the table. Disney assured fans that the completely necessary live action films would still follow the original stories of the Ghibli films with additional alterations only to “modernize” and “broaden the appeal” of the movies – something which definitely hasn’t had a history of diminishing the original tone in other adaptations. The colorful imaginative worlds of Miyazaki’s original works would also certainly not be lost in the conversion to the gritty realism of modern computer generated graphics. No set release dates have been announced so far, although most expect the first of the live action Ghibli films to arrive sometime in 2020. Not to be outdone, production company Legendary Entertainment also announced that it had begun preliminary production on a live action Beyblade film. Legendary’s movie is set to be directed by Micheal Bay and will feature a team of young heroes who battle hyper realistic robotic spinning weapons against each other. Source
  18. Nintendo and Marvelous have announced a western release for Rune Factory 4 Special for the Switch. The upgraded port of the classic fantasy RPG will launch for the hybrid console sometime this year
  19. Nintendo has revealed that Super Mario Maker 2 will be launching on Nintendo Switch this summer. June, to be exact (well, more precise). The news was announced during today's Nintendo Direct, with Mario's latest level creator opening the show. Although it's still in development, the game is set to feature brand new features and new elements, expanding in the original Wii U release. As you can see in the trailer above, this game appears to add underwater options, slopes, and assets from the recent 3D games - Super Mario 3D Land and Super Mario 3D World. Looks like we'll be able to create even bigger, better, and more creative levels than ever before. SOURCE
  20. Nintendo has announced a remake for The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening. The new remake is coming to Nintendo Switch. Featured above, you can view the announcement trailer for the game.
  21. Continuing a long tradition of strange and questionable merchandise, music label Ariola Japan has released a series of cute, themed doormats each decorated with a picture of an idol. Their quirkiest feature is a pressure-activated speaker which allows the mat to apologize when stepped on. With the recent controversy surrounding Yamaguchi Maho, a member of Japanese idol group NGT48, questions have been raised as to whether this product was in poor taste. Yamaguchi, 23, was allegedly assaulted by two men outside her apartment, and later made to apologize by management after sharing the disturbing details on social media. Yamaguchi was questioned at a fan meetup as to whether she approved of the new but potentially offensive line of merchandise. “I think it’s cute” she responded with a nervous smile. NGT48 management later confirmed in a statement that all members should have no problems with their likeness being stepped on. High-tech “smart” models, which interface with home security systems, can selectively reject unsolicited visitors such as boyfriends. The doormats will hit store shelves this February. Each comes with a 3-year-warranty before being considered “retired”, at which point the manufacturer highly suggests throwing it out and purchasing a new one. SOURCE
  22. Nintendo has issued an official statement updating fans on the progress of Metroid Prime 4. Sadly, development of the game has been entirely restarted. The message comes from Shinya Takahashi, Senior Managing Executive Officer at Nintendo. In the video above, Takahashi thanks fans for their continued excitement and support, before stating that "the current development progress has not reached the standard we seek in a sequel to the Metroid Prime series". It's a refreshingly open and honest update, and one that, while incredibly saddening for fans of the game, should hopefully provide reassurance that Nintendo wants this upcoming title to be of the highest quality. As such, development has been restructured entirely, and its producer Kensuke Tanabe will now work alongside Retro Studios, the team that developed the original Metroid Prime series. Naturally, this means it will be quite some time before we hear anything new about the game; Takahashi apologies for this again, ending the video by promising that the game "will stand shoulder to shoulder with the past Metroid Prime series titles". SOURCE
  23. Sega has sneakily confirmed the PC release date for the original Yakuza Kiwami. The news comes via a new animated GIF posted on the game’s Steam page, where a new “Majimaaaa!” category added just above the game’s main synopsis. It shows an animated gif of the aforementioned Goro Majima appearing out of a sewer cover. For a split second at the end of the gif, the words February 19th can be seen. Are you looking forward to it like @watyermelon is? Let us know in the comments! SOURCE
  24. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), an international animal rights group, recently launched its ‘Goblin Lives Matter’ campaign, an activist movement opposing the indiscriminate killing of goblins. The campaign is a response to increased animosity towards the species over the past few months. PETA advocates a controversial ‘no kill’ policy forbidding the harming of any sentient life regardless of reason. The same principle, it argues, should apply to goblins as well. On the other hand, many hold that killing goblins is justified due to their harmful relationship with humans. Goblins have a reputation for raiding human settlements, burning them to the ground and capturing the women for use as sex slaves. While well-populated areas are unaffected, many rural communities remain at risk. As a result, many local governments contract hunters in an effort to curb the goblin population. The most famous of these hunters, an enigma simply known as ‘Goblin Slayer’, has even inspired a fantasy light novel series. Despite evidence that goblins are a direct threat to humanity, PETA remains adamant in its goal to protect all nonhuman creatures. “A life is a life, no matter who it belongs to,” a PETA spokesperson writes in a Facebook post. “Like humans, goblins are emotional creatures. They have families and care for them. Every year, thousands of goblin children are orphaned or murdered! #goblinlivesmatter”. PETA is currently organizing a missionary trip into goblin territories to provide relief aid and conduct peace efforts. The operation hopes to establish a friendly liaison between the human and goblin races. Despite numerous warnings from authorities, PETA is confident that the expedition will go smoothly. SOURCE
  25. Fans of animated Japanese adult entertainment have suffered another blow last month, with just days after Tumblr announced and implemented a system to ban all adult content site-wide, one of the most popular western hentai websites, HentaiHaven, has been shut down. The site’s sudden disappearance has left many fans shocked and dismayed. “What the f**k am I supposed to do on Christmas now? Visit my family?” commented one user, BlackerBible, on Twitter. Although the actual reason behind the sites abrupt closure is still ambiguous, sources close to Anime Maru have indicated the possible involvement of the Russian government. A leaked cable from the desk of Alexander Bortnikov, current director of the Federal Security Service, implicates the use of internal resources to have HentaiHaven removed from the internet, and to help reduce the impact that animated pornography (“большой жир аниме грудь“) was having on the Russian populous nationally. Russia has yet to release any official statements on the matter, though the attack is a possible response to the surprise revelation from Pornhub earlier this month that Russia is one of the worlds largest consumers of hentai. “Its typical Russian geopolitical posturing” stated Hugo Voloshyn, professor of Eastern Media & Political Globalization at Yale University. “They start off fairly coy and tsundere, happy to brush things aside or simply ignore problems until they go away, but when push comes to shove, they have no hesitation to go full yandere, especially if they feel the situation gets out of control and could potentially leave them embarrassed, which I believe is what has happened here.” The actual facts surrounding HentaiHaven’s shutdown may never be revealed. But the growing prevalence of censorship or removal of adult content on a growing number of platforms has left observers worried that 2019 may become the year of the “Waifupocolypse”, with additional rumors suggesting its only a matter of time before Kissanime.ru is next on the firing line.
