Switch has all sorts of different ways of playing. With Hamster’s Arcade Archives series, it looks like you can actually have a setup in which the screen is displayed vertically. This was discovered with the latest Neo Geo release, Neo Turf Masters, but it applies to the other titles as well.

The screen option admittedly doesn’t have a tremendous amount of use here. In the future though, it’ll be interesting to see if any other Switch games are made with a vertical format in mind.

Popular YouTuber JonTron has been in the news lately due to some controversial comments he made in recent weeks. Certain views he expressed on particularly sensitive topics resulted in backlash from fans and others.

Originally, Playtonic worked with JonTron to have his voice featured in the game for one of the characters. The studio now says though that the situation has prompted his removal in full.

Playtonic said in a statement:

“We recently became aware of comments made by voice artist JonTron after development on Yooka-Laylee had been completed. JonTron is a talented video presenter who we were initially, two years ago, happy to include as a voice contributor in our game. However, in light of his recent personal viewpoints we have made the decision to remove JonTron’s inclusion in the game via a forthcoming content update. We would like to make absolutely clear that we do not endorse or support JonTron’s personal viewpoints and that, as an external fan contributor, he does not represent Playtonic in any capacity. Playtonic is a studio that celebrates diversity in all forms and strives to make games that everyone can enjoy. As such, we deeply regret any implied association that could make players feel anything but 100% comfortable in our game worlds, or distract from the incredible goodwill and love shown by our fans and Kickstarter backers.”
