Switch

Switch is a hit thus far, and the system is selling extremely well. Sadly, that success and the lack of stock is leading to some unfortunate situations in Japan. One issue concerns fraud, which is even being reported by major TV outlets.


SEGA gave fans a first look at Special Stages in Sonic Mania during a panel at Comic-Con today. They’re inspired by titles on the Saturn and CD. You’ll collect rings for more time and Blue Spheres for more speed while chasing down a UFO for a Chaos Emerald.

YouTuber FILIP played Pokken Tournament DX at Comic-Con this week, and shared new direct-feed footage of the game on Switch. Check out some footage below.

For awhile we had hoped that Redout would finally come to Switch this month. GameStop went as far as to list it for July 25 in one of its weekly ads. Unfortunately, July 25 is almost upon us, and that date is looking extremely unlikely.

GameStop’s own online listing has been updated to October 24. The same goes for Best Buy. Amazon has a release date of August 29.

In any case, the bottom line is that we still don’t have an official release date for Redout on Switch. Anything being listed by retailers is speculation at this time.

Thanks to Brent for the tip.

This week’s issue of Famitsu features an interview with Square Enix’s Tetsuya Nomura. The Japanese magazine primarily talked with Nomura about Kingdom Hearts III, but there was some brief discussion pertaining to Xenoblade Chronicles 2 as well.

For those who haven’t heard, Nomura contributed to Xenoblade Chronicles 2 as a character designer. He worked on characters included in the game’s Ira organization.

Players may not have known it, but Ultra Street Fighter II has had a secret unlockable character from the start. Capcom unveiled how to add Shin Akuma earlier today by going through a few simple steps. See some footage of the character in action below.

The first-person shooter SUPERHOT is being considered for Switch. That’s according to developer Andrzej Dominowski, who was asked about the possibility during a Reddit AMA today.

SUPERHOT is a unique take on the first-person shooter genre. Time moves only when you move, the game ditches regenerating health bars, and will have you moving through slow-motion bullets.

The concept of SUPERHOT may sound slightly strange if you’ve never heard of it before, but it definitely works. You can get a feel for the gameplay with the video below.
