What will be a big aspect of gaming in the future? If you were to ask former Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime, it would be streaming.

Reggie told Hollywood Reporter that streaming could take off over the next decade. Players will be able to experience any game on any device thanks to advances with the cloud and increase in download speeds.

Have you ever heard of Minority Report: Everybody Runs? If you said no, we wouldn’t blame you.

Activision originally published the movie-based Minority Report: Everybody Runs for the Game Boy Advance way back in 2002. It was made by Torus Games. Alex Hutchinson, who directed the likes of Assassin’s Creed III and Far Cry 4, started his career working on that old GBA title.

Minority Report: Everybody Runs might be noteworthy if only for only one reason. During a recent episode of the Game Informer Show, Hutchinson revealed that movie director Steven Spielberg’s assistant reached out to the team during development. Spielberg apparently wanted the guns removed as they wouldn’t fit in with the GBA’s audience – which he felt was more kid-friendly. In its place, Torus Games was given a suggestion to replace the guns with the Sick Stick – a weapon already in the game – that makes you vomit.

The Pokemon Company has announced Pokemon: Twilight Wings, a new seven-part animated web series featuring the Galar region from Pokemon Sword/Shield. The first episode debuts on January 15 on the official Pokemon YouTube channel.

Not much is known at the moment, but the web series is said to focus on the dreams of Galar’s residents, the realities of their lives, and the challenges they need to overcome. Each episode is about five minutes long.
