Microids readied a new trailer for Flashback to promote its launch on Switch. Get a look at the video below.

WWE 2K19

Last year, WWE 2K18 made it to Switch. It was the first time the series appeared on a Nintendo console since WWE ’13 on Wii.

Unfortunately, that seems to have been a short return. 2K announced WWE 2K19 today, and Switch is nowhere to be seen in the press release. There’s always a possibility that it could be announced later in the year, but it’s unlikely given that NBA 2K19 was recently revealed for Switch alongside all other platforms.

WWE 2K18 did launch on Switch in a terrible state. The game suffered from severe technical problems, including frame rate drops and actual slowdown. 2K may have felt that this year’s entry wouldn’t be possible on Switch or wouldn’t be worth the extra effort.

Warriors Orochi 4

Warriors Orochi 4 was previously given a September 27 release date in Japan. The game will follow a few weeks later in the west, with Koei Tecmo announcing today that it’s planned for October 16 in North America and October 19 in Europe.

Hot on the heels of E3 2018, Koei Tecmo has also confirmed that Warriors Orochi 4 will bring back split-screen co-op. Split Joy-Con play is possible on Switch as well.

Wolfenstein II

Panic Button has quickly become an expert when it comes to Switch ports. Having worked on the Switch versions of Bethesda’s Doom and Wolfenstein II as well as Rocket League, the studio knows how to get demanding titles up-and-running on the system.

Speaking with MCV, Panic Button boss Adam Creighton spoke about the window between a game’s initial release date and the Switch release. He says the window is “shrinking all the time for those publishers and developers who are planning on Switch at the outset.”

Fortnite is breaking the mold with voice chat on Switch. The game has its own in-game voice chat functionality, meaning you don’t need to use the Nintendo Switch Online app in order to communicate with others.

In light of this news, Turtle Beach confirmed today it now offers 25 headsets in its current product lineup (not including prior legacy models) that are fully compatible with Fortnite’s in-game chat system on Switch. The company also revealed two new products at E3 last week – the Recon 200 and Stealth 300 – that are both optimally built for Fortnite on Switch as well as other Battle Royale games.

FIFA 19

More and more games these days are starting to offer cross-platform play. Could FIFA offer the same sort of functionality in the future? Possibly.

FIFA creative director Matt Prior spoke about the subject in an interview with Eurogamer at E3 last week. Prior said the team has looked into cross-platform play, stating:

Niantic has revealed brand new functionality coming to Pokemon GO. New features involving friends, gifting, and trading are all on the way.

Here’s the full rundown from Niantic:

Runbow has received a new release date on Switch following a previous delay. The game will launch via the eShop on July 3.

A physical version is also planned for Q3. It’ll include all DLC and two stickers.

We have more information about Runbow below, along with a trailer.

Steins;Gate Elite will launch in Japan on September 20, 5pb. announced today. Pricing is set at 7,800 yen for physical copies and 7,000 yen for the download version.

Here’s the opening movie:

Nintendo has announced the Nintendo Switch Family Showdown, which will air on Disney Channel and Disney XD this summer. It will be streamed to the DisneyNOW app this summer as well.

The event “will pit families against each other in a fun and friendly competition.” The Nintendo-themed set will have challenges involving various Switch games, including “searching for collectibles in Super Mario Odyssey, competing in head-to-head matchups in Mario Tennis Aces and participating in dance-offs in Just Dance 2018.”
