News about the situation surrounding Telltale Games continue to surface. After the company confirmed a “majority studio closure”, USgamer and Game Informer are reporting that The Walking Dead: The Final Season has been cancelled and the team has been laid off. That means the series will not be finished.

Telltale just announced this week that the second episode of The Walking Dead: The Final Season would be launching next Tuesday. While it appears that will still happen, the remaining two episodes will not be released.

Telltale is apparently finishing up its deal with Netflix for Minecraft: Story Mode. After that, it looks like the studio will be finished.

We’ve been going back and forth throughout the day as to whether or not we should share this. Essentially, a post surfaced on 4chan earlier today with an image claiming to show a new character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. If you’d like to see the image for yourself, continue on below.

Serebii reportedly discovered an image of what could potentially be a new Pokemon which was leaked in the network traffic of Pokemon GO. Only click to read more if you want to see the image of what could be the new Pokemon.

In the lead up to the release of Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph 2 in theaters this November, the company’s marketing efforts are now turning focus towards the film. As such, attractions and even music are being transitioned over throughout Disney World’s new Play Zone at Epcot to reflect the upcoming release.

While no official confirmation has been made by Nintendo or Disney at this point, the attentive ears of Attractions Magazine on Twitter have caught on video what sounds like a new orchestration of the Super Mario Kart theme playing at the park.

Last Wednesday, a Nintendo Direct was announced that would be airing the following day. However, due to an earthquake in Japan, the presentation was pushed back to an unspecified date.

We’ve been waiting on a new date for that presentation since then. There’s been some chatter about the Nintendo Direct airing this Thursday instead, in large part because of some information datamined from Splatoon 2. This is now being backed up by a report that Nintendo Life who has heard similarly from “trusted sources”.

Earlier today, Nintendo unveiled a special Switch bundle and themed design for Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu / Eeevee. That might not be the only new hardware package offered in time for the holiday season.

Rumors recently circulated regarding a potential new Super Smash Bros. Ultimate bundle. We tend to be a bit cautious with unverified information from unclear sources, so we avoided reporting on it at the time. But with today’s Pokemon bundle announcement, there could be some truth to the original rumor.

Yesterday, a description on the back of the box of an upcoming Switch game in Japan made some people doubt whether or not the cloud saving feature of the upcoming Nintendo Switch Online service would work with all Switch games. Today, we can possibly shed a little light on that issue, though it’s nothing official yet.

The folks over at Nintendo Life reached out to a source of theirs, presumably someone working at a developer or publisher, and asked them about the cloud saving feature. Here’s what the source had to say:

A new Nintendo Direct was originally planned for later today. However, due to an earthquake in Japan, the presentation has been postponed.

Nintendo hasn’t provided a new date for the broadcast just yet. However, there’s an indication that we can now expect it next week.

In this photo, there’s a description on the back of a box for Japanese title Hakuoki Shinkai: Fuukaden that reads, “Compatible with Save Data Cloud Backup of Nintendo Switch Online.” That suggests that Switch cloud saves might not be universal and instead are dependent on the game. We’ll likely learn more during tomorrow’s Nintendo Direct.


For the past few years, fans have come to expect a new Nintendo Direct in September. Last year’s presentation during the month was noteworthy, as we received lengthy looks at previously-announced titles as well as some brand new games.

Speculation is now circulating that a Nintendo Direct will be airing very soon – in fact, possibly tomorrow. The presentation is rumored for 4 PM PT (September 6) / 7 PM ET (September 6) / 12 AM in the UK (September 7) / 1 AM in Europe (September 7).

Information about the Nintendo Direct appears to come from indie sources, indicating that we’d probably see an indie game or two during the broadcast. The rumor also stems from sources who accurately helped to predict Nintendo of Europe’s Indie Highlights video a few hours before it went live last month. Stay tuned.
