Update (2/11): Eurogamer has updated its original report, and says that “Bandai Namco’s Japan studio is also working on the project, with the intention it will now take the lead on its development while Singapore moves to focus on another Switch game”. The site does not elaborate further beyond this. However, Eurogamer now seems to believe that Bandai Namco Japan is the lead studio on Metroid Prime 4 as opposed to Bandai Namco Singapore.

Original (2/9): Rumors of Bandai Namco working on Metroid Prime 4 picked up this week following a discovery on a LinkedIn profile page. This person listed an “unannounced IP (first person shooter/adventure exclusive to the Nintendo Switch)”, which would fit the bill for the project.

Eurogamer now says that Bandai Namco Singapore is indeed behind Metroid Prime 4. The site’s sources say that they’re the “lead studio on the game in collaboration with Nintendo.” Bandai Namco Singapore has some talent from the now defunct LucasArts Singapore, who previously worked on the cancelled Star Wars 1313.

You know what’s sort of crazy? The last time an original Retro Studios-made game released was in 2014 with Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. We’re now coming full circle with a port on Switch later this year.

Retro often works in the shadows. We don’t often hear about the company much, and it’s anybody’s guess as to what they’re working on currently. Four years in between games is quite awhile, and fans are very much interested in Retro’s next title.

Could Retro be developing another Donkey Kong game? A resurrected Nintendo IP? A new IP of their own? Just thinking about the possibilities are exciting. Let us know about the ideas you have for Retro’s future in the comments below.

Update: Just like that, everything is back up and running. Thankfully the downtime didn’t last very long at all.

Original: If you’re having issues with Splatoon 2’s online functionality, there’s a reason for that. Nintendo is currently conducting emergency maintenance.

Splatoon 2’s network services were impacted starting at 11:31 AM PT / 2:31 PM ET / 7:31 PM in the UK / 8:31 PM in Europe. This is still ongoing. When it ends, we’ll let you know.


Hello Neighbor confirmed for Switch

Update 2: tinyBuild made this official during its presentation. No set release date just yet.

Update: Bumped to the top. This is now up on Amazon as well.

Original: Later today, tinyBuild will be hosting a presentation to announce six new games for Switch. Best Buy seems to have spoiled at least one of the surprises, as the retailer is listing Hello Neighbor for Nintendo’s console. Pre-orders are open here.

Hello Neighbor has actually been rumored for Switch previously, so perhaps this shouldn’t be much of a surprise after all. In any case, we’ll report back later with tinyBuild’s full slate of announcements.

As for Hello Neighbor itself, it’s a stealth horror game in which you’re tasked with sneaking into your neighbor’s house to find out what horrible secrets he’s hiding in the basement. We have a few more details and a trailer below.

For those who missed out on it the first time, you can order the Bayonetta Special Edition from Amazon Germany once again. Pre-orders are up here. In case you’re curious, this does ship to the US.

The Bayonetta Special Edition includes Bayonetta 2 on a game card, a download code for Bayonetta, a steelbook, and Bayonetta-themed stickers and Verse Cards.

In about an hour from now, tinyBuild will be kicking off a #HelloSwitch presentation. The company is expected to make six Switch announcements – one of which should be Hello Neighbor.

You can watch the broadcast starting at roughly 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM in the UK / 7 PM in Europe. We’ll also be sharing all of the news on the site.

SNK is back on Nintendo platforms with SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy. NIS America will be publishing the game on Switch this summer.

During an interview with Game Informer, producer Yasuyuki Oda spoke more about SNK Heroines. Notable topics include the game’s sexualization as well as having it on Switch.

You can find comments about these topics from Oda below. For the full interview, head on over here.

Ubisoft has prepared a new behind the scenes video for Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. In it, fans are provided with a look at the challenges musicians faced in creating the music for the Switch title, and we’re even able to see what it was like recording music with an orchestra in Prague. Check out the full video below.

Two more updates were added to the official Super Mario Odyssey Twitter account this week.

First, we have a new piece of concept art below featuring the Jaxi. Prior to finishing the design, Nintendo says that it determined its movable and non-removable parts in order to emphasize its movements.

Later today, the next European Splatfest in Splatoon 2 will begin. Nintendo has published some official art as usual, which we have above. Players will battle over whether they like or dislike gherkins on their burgers.
