Hypercharge: Unboxed a cooperative first-person shooter, landed on the Switch eShop at the start of 2020. But rather than just releasing the game and calling it a day, developer Digital Cybercherries is committed to adding more content, features, and more. We previously shared the roadmap here.

Unfortunately, like many things this year, development of the roadmap is behind schedule due to the coronavirus. Digital Cybercherries recently provided a status update, stating that the team is “working hard to play catch up”.

Shin Megami Tensei series director Kazuyuki Yamai spoke more about the new Merciful Mode for Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD Remaster in an interview with IGN Japan.

Available as free DLC, the new mode will let players quickly and easily take down enemies. Yamai explained why the team added this feature, noting:

The Pokemon Company generated $2.98 billion in 2018. That number went up to $4.2 billion in 2019, according to License Global.

2019 was one of the biggest years yet for Pokemon. The franchise saw Detective Pikachu in movie theaters and the launch of Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield on Switch. We’d also be remiss if we failed to mention Pokemon GO, which continues to be a monster success. The IP is represented in many areas with the trading card game, toys, apparel and accessories, designer collaborations, tech gear, home decor, and more.
