Concerns about the Switch version of LEGO City Undercover were raised after the title’s packaging was found in the wild. Two elements in particular stuck out. First, the box states that players may need up to 13GB of storage for the “game download”. Also noted is that an internet connection is required.
Apparently these were both nothing more than errors. Warner Bros. sent out a fresh statement to IGN, confirming that LEGO City Undercover’s packaging listed incorrect information. Players will be “getting the complete game, and do not need to download additional content to enjoy the full experience.”
The full statement reads:

When we last heard about The Girl and the Robot, is was slated to end up on Wii U by the end of 2016. That didn’t happen, but this version of the game hasn’t been cancelled. It’s been submitted to Nintendo, so it shouldn’t be too long before The Girl and the Robot is published on the eShop.
As for Switch, a release on the new console might be in the cards. Flying Carpets Games wrote on Twitter that the team is “exploring” the platform.
@peachykeeny Made a Wii U submission to Nintendo, now waiting! More info on that and PS4 version soon. We are also exploring the Switch…

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night reveals three new characters
Posted on 19 hours ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 2 Comments | 0 Likes
As part of the latest Kickstarter update, the team behind Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is revealing a trio of characters today. We’re introduced to Dominique Baldwin, Alfred, and Anne Knolles.
Below are the introductions for each:
An exorcist dispatched by the church, she supports Miriam as the shopkeeper. She speaks in a posh way, but she treats everyone kindly. While the church believes Miriam and Gebel to be demons, Dominique trusts them as human beings. In order to foil Gebel’s ambitions, she asks her old friend Johannes to summon Miriam.
Alfred is one of the alchemists responsible for the demon-summoning uproar ten years ago. He was Johannes’s mentor, and a father figure to both Johannes and Miriam, but he’s lost his former self as he heads to the castle seeking the Book of Logaeth in Gebel’s possession. Quite and intelligent, Alfred’s alchemic ability was unmatched even among his fellow alchemists.
A village girl whose parents were murdered. Anne was saved by Dominique and Miriam when demons attacked her village. When Dominique is out of town, Anne looks after the shop. She is a bright and cheerful girl.
That’s not the only news on Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. Developer Koji Igarashi has answered several new questions in a video, posted below.
