Shovel Knight new game

To cap off its special presentation for Shovel Knight’s 10th anniversary, Yacht Club Games confirmed that a new entry in the series is in development.

Nothing concrete was shared during the presentation. However, we did get to hear a bit about the general visions from Yacht Club’s Sean Velasco.

Aloy Horizon Smash Bros

Now that a Nintendo console is getting a game in PlayStation’s Horizon series, that’s leading some to think about whether we could see Aloy – the leading hero of the franchise – in a Smash Bros. entry. Guerrilla Games does at least appear to be interested in seeing that happen.

Kotaku recently caught up with Guerrilla Games franchise development lead producer Tim Symons to talk about the just-announced LEGO Horizon Adventures. That’s where the question about Smash Bros. comes in.

Animal Crossing New Horizons aquarium

Today, Nintendo has announced that it is expanding the aquarium experience inspired by Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

Initially, the event was held at the Seattle Aquarium. Now the experience is going on a national tour, making multiple stops across the U.S. throughout the year.

Shadow the Hedgehog gun

If there’s one thing you may remember about the 2005 game Shadow the Hedgehog, it’s that the character used a gun. However, since then, SEGA has moved away from that.

Shadow is now getting his own campaign again as part of Sonic x Shadow Generations. This time around though, he won’t be wielding a gun at all – and it’s something Sonic Team boss Takashi Iizuka doesn’t feel is truly necessary.

Sonic remastered

The Sonic series has already been remastered a couple of times with Sonic Colors and the upcoming Sonic x Shadow Generations, but it seems that SEGA may not stop there.

Sonic Team’s Takashi Iizuka recently spoke about what could come next in an interview with IGN. He noted that 

Summer Game Fest 2024 live stream

Summer Game Fest 2024 is beginning later today, and we have the official live stream here for you. The fun kicks off at 2 PM PT / 5 PM ET / 10 PM in the UK / 11 PM in Europe. Days of the Devs will begin immediately after.

This is obviously a multiplatform show, but we should be getting at least some Switch news here. It’s thought that SEGA could be showing a new trailer for Sonic x Shadow Generations today – the game’s release date already leaked apparently. There could be other updates as well. If there’s anything notable, we’ll be sure to pass it along on the main site as the show goes on.

Here’s where you can watch the Summer Game Fest 2024 live stream:

Munchlax Build A Bear

Munchlax can be found in stores and online. For those going the online route, there’s an exclusive bundle. Each order includes the main plushie with 5-in-1-sound, Heavy Ball hoodie, and Bib and Tamato Berry Wristie. 

My Nintendo Classic Games Postcard Set

A new reward just went up on My Nintendo, and it’s one that retro gamers might be interested in. Members can now spend their points on a Classic Games Postcard Set.

The set comes with eight different postcards with boxart from classic titles. Game Boy, Game Boy Advance, and Nintendo 64 are represented here.

No More Heroes Travis Touchdown future

No More Heroes creator Suda51 was recently asked if Travis Touchdown, the series’ star, could return in the future. As of now it doesn’t sound like an easy question for him to answer.

Eurogamer asked the well-known developer about the future of the character. Suda51 responded by saying that he’s unsure, especially given how Marvelous owns the rights to the No More Heroes franchise. Grasshopper Manufacture developed the different games in the series, but that was thanks to Marvelous being on board.

Nintendo leaks Google

According to a report from 404 Media, Nintendo was by previously impacted by leaked information obtained by a Google employee who accessed private YouTube videos. Google held an internal review and deemed that the activity was “non-intentional”.

404 Media says its article is based on “a copy of an internal Google database which tracks six years worth of potential privacy and security issues”. The thousands of incidents were actually reported by the company’s employees. The database covers a ton of other incidents as well, ranging from accidentally collecting children’s voice data to Google Street View transcribing and storing license plate numbers from photos.
