Just like the first game, Splatoon 2 features gear. There are three categories: headgear, clothes, and shoes. The Splatoon 2 Twitter account teases new gear keeping in line with the fashion trends taking place in Inkopolis Square.

Every piece of gear has an ability. With abilities, it’s possible for the same kind of gear to be unique. With the two years that have gone by since the first Splatoon, it sounds like some abilities are new or have changed.



It won’t come as much of a surprise, but CI Games says there are no plans to have Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 on Switch. However, level designer Tomasz Pruski told that the company is “definitely looking at it for future products.”

Pruski noted:

“So we will not be releasing Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 on Nintendo Switch, but we are definitely looking at it for future products. We met with them [Nintendo] and talked about the possibilities. Sniper is not our only IP, so we’re looking to put different games on there. But nothing is official as of now.”

Concerns about the Switch version of LEGO City Undercover were raised after the title’s packaging was found in the wild. Two elements in particular stuck out. First, the box states that players may need up to 13GB of storage for the “game download”. Also noted is that an internet connection is required.

Apparently these were both nothing more than errors. Warner Bros. sent out a fresh statement to IGN, confirming that LEGO City Undercover’s packaging listed incorrect information. Players will be “getting the complete game, and do not need to download additional content to enjoy the full experience.”

The full statement reads:

As part of the latest Kickstarter update, the team behind Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is revealing a trio of characters today. We’re introduced to Dominique Baldwin, Alfred, and Anne Knolles.

Below are the introductions for each:

Dominique Baldwin
Age: 25
An exorcist dispatched by the church, she supports Miriam as the shopkeeper. She speaks in a posh way, but she treats everyone kindly. While the church believes Miriam and Gebel to be demons, Dominique trusts them as human beings. In order to foil Gebel’s ambitions, she asks her old friend Johannes to summon Miriam.

Age: 57
Alfred is one of the alchemists responsible for the demon-summoning uproar ten years ago. He was Johannes’s mentor, and a father figure to both Johannes and Miriam, but he’s lost his former self as he heads to the castle seeking the Book of Logaeth in Gebel’s possession. Quite and intelligent, Alfred’s alchemic ability was unmatched even among his fellow alchemists.

Anne Knolles
Age: 12
A village girl whose parents were murdered. Anne was saved by Dominique and Miriam when demons attacked her village. When Dominique is out of town, Anne looks after the shop. She is a bright and cheerful girl.

That’s not the only news on Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. Developer Koji Igarashi has answered several new questions in a video, posted below.
