Splatoon

Splatoon, the third person shooter developed by Nintendo launching later this month in all regions exclusively on Wii U, is getting closer to release with each passing day so it’s not surprising to see Nintendo heavily promoting their game with new screenshots and videos.

A new Splatoon commercial called “Ink It Up” has been made available earlier today on the Nintendo Official YouTube channel. The video, which is a rather short one just like all commercials, features some really quick colorful gameplay sequences that will definitely make all fans of the game even more excited for its upcoming release. You can take a look at the Ink It Up commercial by going at the end of this post.

Players all over the world have had the chance to try out Splatoon last week with Splatoon Global Testfire. The Testfire was only available for one hour for three days but some of the players that have tried the game have recorded several gameplay sequences and made them available online. All those in Europe who have taken part in the Splatoon Global Testfire will also be able to purchase the game on the eShop with a 10% off its full price.

Splatoon is Nintendo’s take on the third person shooter gameplay formula. The game will come with a single player mode focused on exploration and platforming as well as a multiplayer mode more focused on shooting. The game will also be compatible with the new Splatoon amiibo figures, which will allow players to play through some exclusive missions and obtain items that can be used to customize characters.

Splatoon will be released in all regions on May 29th exclusively on Wii U. A Wii U console bundle including Splatoon and Nintendo Land will also be released on the same day in North America.

Raiden, the famous shmup series, will come back as a twin-stick shooter on PS5, PS4, and PC

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.

Bandai Namco and Nike designed Tekken 8 sneakers with tag-team designs

Nike, the maker of high-quality shoes, is working with Bandai Namco, the company that makes the Tekken series, to make a pair of sneakers. The fun competition is part of the franchise’s 30th anniversary celebrations. You can get your own pair for $250 or the equivalent in your country, though they’ll probably be worth a lot more on the sneakerhead black market.

Two pairs of Tekken 8 x Nike Air Foamposite One Fist sneakers are set to come out in September 2024, according to shoe fan Sole Retriever (thanks, VGC). The designs are based on Kazuya and Jin, two main characters in the series. You can get them at Nike and some other stores. People who like hypebeasts and fighting games are likely to buy these quickly, so if you like Tekken and shoes that make people talk, you should probably act fast.

Should Bandai Namco and Nike work together? What do you think? Are you going to fight for your own pair? Make sure to take good care of your shoes and keep their value in the comments section below.

There will soon be a new book in Future Press’s Books of Knowledge series, which is FromSoftware’s officially licensed line of hardcover strategy guides. This will help players who are having trouble with Elden Ring’s Shadow of the Erdtree expansion. The base game came with two books, and now you can get the unholy trinity for $45 (or the equivalent amount in your currency). It will ship on September 30th.

Like the first two games, The Lands Between and Shards of Shattering, Shadow of the Erdtree is both a complete guide to how to play and a beautiful artbook with full-page pictures of enemies, landscapes, and weapons. This big book has 352 pages and is likely to sell out quickly, based on how quickly the ones that came before it did.

Do you know a lot about strategy guides? You could read the first two Books of Knowledge. If so, what did you think of them? Leave a comment below and let us know.
