Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes will feature several collaborations with indie games. One of these will be Shovel Knight, director Suda51 has revealed.

The news was just shared during the Nindies@Night stream. Specifics were not shared, however, as talks between Grasshopper Manufacture and Yacht Club Games appear to be early on. Suda51 lifted his shirt… to show another shirt with Shovel Knight front and center.

Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes is also collaborating with Hotline Miami. We should be hearing about other partnerships in the future.

Square Enix announced Project Octopath Traveler for Switch during the system’s big presentation back in January. However, we haven’t heard much since then. That’s about to change.

Square Enix has opened its official website for the Tokyo Game Show, accessible here. The page already contains a listing of the company’s lineup for the show, and Project Octopath Traveler is indeed included.

The full lineup is as follows:

If yesterday’s Nindies Showcase wasn’t enough, Nintendo has even more indie fun in store for us tonight. The Nindies@Night event in Seattle is underway, and HyperRPG is hosting a stream in collaboration with the Big N. We’ll be seeing gameplay and apparently some announcements as well.

You can watch the stream as it happens below. It should begin at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM in the UK / 6 AM in Europe.

An official press release has been sent out for Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes, which was unveiled during yesterday’s Nindies Showcase. New details are presented in the announcement.

First, in case there was any doubt, Travis Strikes Again is indeed a 3D action title. Travis Touchdown will be wielding his beam katana once again as he takes on waves of enemies, bosses, and Bad Man.

We have more news about the Switch version of NBA 2K18 stemming from a hands on event that took place today.

First up, NBA 2K18 will be about 25GB. That puts it as one of the larger digital downloads on Switch, but if you have a big microSD card, it’s not entirely unmanageable.

We also have good news about updates on Switch. Nintendo is allowing developer Visual Concepts to push updates day and date with the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions. That means the Switch version won’t be forgotten, and will be receiving the same treatment as other platforms post-launch.


Nintendo has updated the Switch eShop listing for Pokken Tournament DX. Thanks to that, we now know that the game will take up 3.2GB of space.

The original Pokken Tournament on Wii U was pretty similar. On Nintendo’s older console, it was about 3.68GB.

2K Sports unveiled a new mode debuting in NBA 2K18 for the first time. MyPARK, Pro-Am and the popular MyCAREER experience will be brought together in The Neighborhood.

Here’s the full rundown:

The Neighborhood is unlike anything ever seen in NBA 2K or any other sports career mode before. MyPLAYERs live in a neighborhood environment with several locations in the city blocks to visit, flush with other MyPLAYERs and characters with whom to interact. Experiences and ratings revolve around player actions, whether it’s running into Kyrie Irving while getting a shave at the barbershop, competing on the courts in The Playground, getting inked at the tattoo parlor, listening to the latest beats or showing off the latest gear to friends while strolling the block. A user’s experience is entirely shaped by how they compete, allowing them to reap the rewards of playing NBA 2K18 the way they enjoy it most.

It’s not too much, but the first glimpse of NBA 2K18 footage on Switch has come in with an off-screen video. See it below.


Update: Another important detail has come in. NBA 2K18 will run at 30 frames per second, while the PlayStation and Xbox One versions are 60 FPS.

2K Sports and Visual Concepts seem to be treating the Switch version of NBA 2K18 well. Folks are starting to go hands on with the game, including USgamer, and we’re hearing that it’s feature complete and will be identical to the PlayStation 4 version. NBA 2K18 players on Switch can expect the inclusion of MyGM team-management, MyLeague, MyCareer, Story mode, and everything else. It’s the same engine across all platforms.

amiibo support is officially confirmed as well. However, the specifics are being kept under wraps.
