The new Pokemon Presents event for February 2023 will be starting soon, and we have the official live stream ready to go. Remember that the fun begins at 6 AM PT / 9 AM ET / 2 PM in the UK / 3 PM in Europe.
The only tidbit shared thus far is that the new Pokemon Presents will contain “about 20 minutes of exciting Pokemon news in celebration of Pokemon Day 2023”. We could hear about currently-released games like Pokemon Scarlet and Violet and perhaps some new stuff as well, but fans have thus far been left to speculate.
Here’s where you can watch the Pokemon Presents February 2023 live stream:

Octopath Traveler II guild locations guide
Posted on 1 month ago by Tom in Guides, Switch | 0 comments
Now that Octopath Traveler II is here on Switch, we’ve put together a new guide that should come in helpful to find all of the game’s guild locations.
Similar to the first game, Octopath Traveler II provides licenses to outfit your party members with secondary jobs. These jobs allow them to access the abilities of other classes, giving your party more variety when in combat. One way to obtain these licenses is by finding various class guilds spread throughout the world.
The guide below will provide the location for each of the main eight class guilds. We also have a video version at the very end of this post.

[Review] Octopath Traveler II
Posted on 1 month ago by Elias in Reviews, Switch | 0 comments
Release Date: February 24, 2023
Developer: Square Enix / Acquire
Publisher: Square Enix
The original Octopath Traveler inspired me to create a now sprawling fan group on social media, one that morphed over into a Switch RPG community when the original game’s fire finally died down. Personally, I loved the unique art style the most – beautiful 3D backgrounds and windswept plains, icy tundras and winding cities each punctuated with cute 2D sprites that felt alive in this strangely unique world. Octopath Traveler II is much of the same, but does this entry simply continue with the formula of the first one, or are the changes enough to keep one immersed more than its predecessor?

Metroid Prime Remastered obviously isn’t a new game, but some of you might be playing it for the first time. We’re also sure that some of you only played it back on the GameCube and haven’t revisited it until now.
No matter what your experience is, what do you think of Metroid Prime Remastered? How do you feel about the upgraded visuals? Which control style are you going for? Let us know in the comments below.
[Preview] DC’s Justice League: Cosmic Chaos

Outright Games has a long history of creating games suitable for all ages that all derive from a beloved property. From Paw Patrol to Transformers, Fast & Furious to Zoids, and Trollhunters to the Dragons franchise of films, chances are the company’s name has worked with and been attached to a popular IP that even you, the reader, are a fan of. As a huge fan of superheroes and DC myself, it was an absolute privilege for Nintendo Everything to be invited to an early look at a new DC-focused game to add to the OG catalog – following up from DC League of Super-Pets: The Adventures of Krypto and Ace last summer – in the form of DC’s Justice League: Cosmic Chaos.
