Sonic Chronicles 2

BioWare had ideas for Sonic Chronicles 2 back in the day, but the sequel never materialized. However, lead designer Miles Holmes has now shared details about what the studio had in mind for the story.

For those that never played Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood on DS, that game actually ended with a cliffhanger. The sequel would have picked up right where things left off with Eggman taking over the world, and BioWare had planned certain plot points that would leave the door open to even more games.

Star Wars Knights Old Republic cheats update

These include the ability to add any feat, power or skill, adding 1000 experience, adding 5000 experience, adding 10000 experience, enabling Turbo Speed, creating an item, spawning a cheat bot, toggling screenshot mode, and toggling the flight camera.

Below are the full patch notes for the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic version 1.0.2 cheats update on Switch:

Sonic Chronicles intro cinematic

More than a decade after the game’s original release, a cut animated intro cinematic has been revealed for Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood.

The game was made for the DS by BioWare, the studio behind Mass Effect, Dragon Age, and titles like Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. The company hasn’t done much with Nintendo platforms, but worked with SEGA to make Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood on DS exclusively.

We all know that the all-time classic Star Wars game, Knights of the Old Republic, originally developed by BioWare, got rereleased onto Switch not that long ago as of the time of writing. As one might expect, new developer Aspyr didn’t stop at the digital release. We’re happy to report that they have teamed up with Limited Run Games and are bringing out a physical release.

Here’s what the folks at LRG had to say about it on Twitter.

BioWare made one game for DS back in the day in the form of Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood. It turns out that the company was also tinkering with an exclusive entry in the Mass Effect series, but the project was ultimately scrapped.

The same team behind Sonic Chronicles was also working on something called Mass Effect: Corsair. This would have been a Star Control-inspired game set in Batarian space that ran alongside the original trilogy.

Former BioWare producer Mark Darrah told MinnMax:

Mass Effect Legendary Edition

EA and BioWare are bringing back the Mass Effect trilogy with Mass Effect Legendary Edition. While there’s no news on a Switch version at present, it’s something that hasn’t been ruled out entirely.

Mac Walters, the project director of the Legendary Edition, told Eurogamer:

Walters said:

Mass Effect Trilogy

Portuguese retailer Gaming Replay has listed Mass Effect Trilogy for Switch. That doesn’t mean such a release is happening, but it’s interesting to speculate about the possibility.

It goes without saying that a Mass Effect Trilogy would include the series’ original three games. Gaming Replay seems to suggest an October 2020 release window – at least as a placeholder – which would probably be unlikely.

Mass Effect Trilogy has been rumored previously, but there hasn’t been any talk regarding a Switch version. If EA does happen to make an official announcement, we’ll have it here on the site.


Hello, you beautiful Shy Guys and Shy Girls! This week on NEP, please excuse Oni’s sick voice… BUT! The gang has several great discussions you’ll want to hear. This includes Best Buy leaking games allegedly via their website, which Galen provides some extra insight on, as he used to be a terrible employee back in the day. We then discuss Labo VR and muse over what future ways Labo could be used (Oni freaks over Metroid). We then get a little heavy as we find ourselves talking about the games industry and publishers capitalizing on the social phenomenon of FOMO.

Thank you for listening! Please help the show grow by sharing the podcast with someone you think might enjoy.

BioWare producer Michael Gamble is officially ruling out Mass Effect Andromeda for Switch. Gamble published an inconclusive tweet in October, but has now clarified that the game won’t be on Nintendo’s new platform – at least not initially. Gamble did leave the door open to the possibility in the future, indicating that it’s something that could happen if the fans clamor for it.

Gamble said:

“Yeah, not right now, no. We’re not planning on it. If the Switch launches and everyone’s just yammering for Mass Effect, who knows. We never want to close doors like that.”

Several years ago, EA published Mass Effect 3 for Wii U’s launch. That was handled by Straight Right, the same team that ported Deus Ex: Human Revolution.
