Nintendo and Koei Tecmo came together for the first Hyrule Warriors, a spin-off of the Zelda series, back in 2014. They then collaborated on the just-released Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. Now that we’ve seen two of these games, some fans might be wondering if Hyrule Warriors could be its own dedicated spin-off series.

IGN recently spoke with Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma as well as Age of Calamity producer Yosuke Hayashi, and asked whether Nintendo is considering making this its own standalone series to go alongside mainline Zelda games. The two developers said in response:

Bethesda has confirmed that the Switch version of Doom Eternal is still on track. The physical version has been scrapped, however.

There was some concern about the status of Doom Eternal for Switch after GameStop started contacting customers who pre-ordered the game and informed them that it had been canceled. Now we know that the news simply applied to the physical version.

Bethesda said in a statement:

There’s been a lot of discussion surrounding The Big House and its Super Smash Bros. tournament after it was announced that the upcoming event scheduled for December has been canceled. The event was previously moved to a digital setting, and organizers were looking to use Slippi, an unapproved rollback netcode.

Nintendo has now issued its own statement about the situation. You can read it in full below.

The Big House has made a name for itself as one of the biggest competitive events for Super Smash Bros. Unfortunately, this year’s tournament won’t be happening as originally planned.

The Big House was already forced to go online-only in wake of the coronavirus pandemic. Although the revised digital event was planned for early December, it has now been cancelled entirely. The news comes following a cease-and-desist demand from Nintendo of America.

We’ve posted the full roundup below. Just keep in mind that there is spoiler-related content included before proceeding.

Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers launched back in February, but there’s been no word from Atlus yet regarding English localization. However, there’s a bit of encouraging news coming out of Asia.

Indonesian retailer PS Enterprise, Pakistani retailer Toyorgame, and Singapore retailer Qisahn all have listings for the game. Furthermore, they have a February 23, 2021 date. According to PS Enterprise, the listing was created due to confirmation from their supplier that the game is launching in 2021.

Note that today’s listings are for a “Region 3” English release. What that means is SEGA’s Asian branches would be publishing rather than Atlus West. It’s unclear if and when Atlus would bring the game to other regions officially including North America and Europe.
