IGN captured 12 minutes of Pokken Tournament DX footage from its appearance at PAX West this weekend. View the gameplay below.

If you’ve played the No More Heroes games and watched the trailer for Travis Strikes Again, you may have noticed something about Travis in particular. It seems that Robin Atkin Downes isn’t involved. Downes voiced Travis Touchdown in the first two No More Heroes games, but a different voice actor is featured in Travis Strikes Again’s debut trailer.

Technically, anything could change before launch, and it does look like Travis Strikes Again is fairly early on in development. But as things stand now, Travis has a new voice actor.


The latest issue of Famitsu has shared a listing of the top 30 best-selling games in Japan for the month of July 2017. You can check out the full results below.

Another character trailer has come online for this month’s Switch release, Pokken Tournament DX. A video focusing on Lucario is attached below.


Disgaea 5 Complete was most definitely a success for Nippon Ichi. Thanks to how the game performed, it looks like the company will be giving Switch greater support going forward.

Hideki Yasuda from Ace Research Institute filed a new report on Nippon Ichi. It’s said that Disgaea 5 Complete was a big hit. Nippon Ichi released it aiming at the domestic portable market, and shipped 30,000 units. Even more noteworthy was the 100,000 copies shipped overseas. Yasuda goes on to say that Nippon Ichi will shift their policy to multiplatform development of Switch and PlayStation 4 starting with next year’s releases. They will actively commit to Switch as a means of expanding their revenue opportunities.

NIS America has actually been more proactive on Switch than its Japanese counterpart. Aside from publishing Disgaea 5 Complete in North America and Europe, they’re also handling several upcoming games. These include Touhou Kobuto V: Burst Battle, Penny-Punching Princess, and The Longest Five Minutes.


Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes was properly unveiled this week during the Nindies Showcase broadcast. Following up on that, the game’s teaser site has opened. You can access it here.

We’re also re-posting the debut trailer for Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes below. The trailer Nintendo uploaded had some issues with the music being too loud to hear what was said in the video, but that’s been addressed in the upload from Grasshopper Manufacture.

SEGA caught up with some Gamescom attendees last week to see what they thought of Sonic Forces after playing the demo. Get a look at the video below.

The second Splatfest in Splatoon 2 is taking place in North America and Europe this weekend. In Japan, however, the event is set for the following weekend, and will be featuring an entirely different theme.

Splatoon’s second Japanese Splatfest will ask players to choose between two different foods. Do you prefer McDonald’s french fries or Chicken McNuggets?

The Splatfest will begin on September 9 at 3 PM JST. It’ll last for a full day per usual.

Earlier today, Nintendo announced a partnership with Western Digital for specially-branded Switch microSD cards. Perhaps that’s in part due to a requirement from some upcoming games. According to Nintendo, “a microSD card will be needed for certain Nintendo Switch games that contain an especially large amount of content and require additional storage for players to enjoy the full experience.”

A Nintendo of America representative told IGN that boxart will be sure to inform consumers about the memory card requirement on the front and back of packaging. This includes NBA 2K18, which is pictured above. The eShop will also continue to let buyers know about file sizes.
