Argonaut Games will always be remembered for its work on Star Fox and the Super FX tech for the SNES. But the company could have gained even more recognition had history gone down another way.

The Virtual Boy was Nintendo’s first crack at a VR-like experience, but Argonaut was developing its own system around the same time. Known as the Super Visor, the device would have been more powerful with full-color graphics and ‘head-tracking. It was ultimate scrapped in favor of the Virtual Boy.

The last game we saw from Shin’en was FAST RMX for Switch’s launch. While the studio has been quiet since then, it sounds like the team is about to reemerge.

Shin’en just announced on Twitter that it will have news about its next game tomorrow. We don’t have much to go on other than the tweet below, but fortunately it won’t be long until we have a proper update:

The Walking Dead: The Final Season is in a state of flux at the moment. The first episode arrived as planned on August 14, with the next episode scheduled for tomorrow. But due to the closure of Telltale Games, the rest of the season has been up in the air.

Telltale doesn’t want to make any promises, but the studio just said on Twitter that the company is “actively working towards a solution that will allow episodes 3 and 4 to be completed and released in some form.” This was after various “potential partners have stepped forward to express interest in helping to see The Final Season through to completion.”

Monolith Soft isn’t just known for the Xenoblade franchise. The studio has worked on many games over the years, including the GameCube-exclusive series Baten Kaitos. Two titles released on the platform, but it sounds like there were plans for a third entry as well.

Director Yasuyuki Honne has revealed that Baten Kaitos III was planned and was in pre-production. However, certain “circumstances” prevented the project from moving forward. Honne stated that Baten Kaitos III “would have been grand-scale game with settings at the bottom of the sea, on land, and in the sky.”
