Could Street Fighter V Champion Edition be coming to Switch? EB Games Canada seems to think so. The retailer tweeted out the news, claiming the game can even be pre-ordered in-store.

Despite what EB Games Canada says, there has been no official announcement from Capcom at this time. That means we’ve either got a mistake on our hands, or the store said something a bit earlier than intended.

Here’s the tweet in question:

Digital Cybercherries has made it clear that its cooperative first-person shooter Hypercharge: Unboxed will be updated with more content in the future. Last week, the developer confirmed that support will continue leading into May. You can find the roadmap here.

Over on social media, a preview was shared of the first update scheduled for February 2020. Players can look forward to party modes, new characters, and a tutorial voiced by Robert Pike Daniel.

Here are a few images showing what’s to come:

One of the big announcements coming out of the last Indie World Showcase was Sports Story. Building off of the highly successful Golf Story, Sidebar Games’ next project will have even more sports and activities to do such as dungeon exploring and fishing.

We recently caught up with developer Andrew Newey to learn more about what to expect from Sports Story. We have information on improvements that have been made following feedback from Golf Story, how fishing will play out, and tidbits on “stealthy infiltrations”. Newey also teased something like GALF for the new game, multiplayer support, a possible physical version, and more.

Here’s our full discussion:

Phraeganoth has shown up as the latest boss in Dragalia Lost’s Astral Raids. The battle is available in Beginner, Standard, Expert, and Master difficulties. Players can obtain astral shards and trade them for various rewards. Note that astral pieces are needed to challenge Astral Raids quests.

The Astral Raids with Barbary will be live until January 27.

Fire Emblem Heroes has updated with its latest content, and Lost Lore is now live.

While active, players can send Heroes to scout out other worlds and wait for them to recover lore for the Heroes’ Saga, collection of tales about characters in the Fire Emblem series. For this event, World of Shadows gets the focus. Players can earn rewards such as Orbs and Dragonflowers from scouting, striking, or recovering lore.

Lost Lore will be live until February 15.
