A Switch rating for Journey to the Savage Planet first popped up in Brazil back in October. Another classification has now appeared, this time from the ESRB. The Switch version was rated alongside other platforms.

Note that ratings don’t always confirm upcoming plans. However, it’s at least a sign that publisher 505 Games and developer Typhoon Studios are thinking about the possibility.

Some gamers may remember Solatorobo: Red the Hunter. The cult classic action-RPG was made by CyberConnect2, and released on DS about a decade ago. It was a part of the studio’s Little Tail Bronx series.

During a fan Q&A a little while back, CyberConnect2 boss Hiroshi Matsuyama addressed the possibility of a remake. Here’s what he had to say about the subject:

The Atelier Dusk Trilogy Deluxe Pack won’t be offered physically in North America or Europe. On the bright side, it’s been confirmed that Asia will have a retail version complete with English support.

Play-Asia has opened pre-orders for the physical version of the Atelier Dusk Trilogy Deluxe Pack here. Its release will take place sometime in January.

Fortnite is gearing up for a new event in which the game will give a first look at a scene from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Those that are interested in the movie can stop by the game’s Risky Reels drive-in theater on December 14.

Look for the doors to open at 10:30 AM PT / 1:30 PM ET / 6:30 PM in the UK / 7:30 PM in Europe. Then a half hour later, the actual video will play. And if that wasn’t enough, director J.J. Abrams will apparently make an appearance.

Mjölnir’s Strike has started in Fire Emblem Heroes as the game’s latest event. Players are tasked with protecting the Kingdom of Askr from Thórr’s advancing army, which is lead by Narcian. Mjölnir’s Strike is currently in the Brace phase where players build structures and place allies on the map.

Also worth noting, Fire Emblem Heroes has seen one of its regular updates today for Special Maps: Rival Domains and Special Quests (Axe Art Quests).
