Splatoon

Splatoon, the third person shooter developed by Nintendo now available in all regions on Wii U, may have been released lacking some features but there’s no denying that the team has been working hard to fix this lack. And more is going to come soon for the game, as the Japanese company confirmed earlier today that a new Splatoon update is going to be released next week.

The next Splatoon update, the 1.3.0 update, is going to be released next week, on July 1st. Unfortunately we don’t know precisely what this Splatoon update will include other than some unspecified balance tweaks and fixes for matchmaking. Just like for previous updates, the Splatoon update 1.3.0 is going to be required for online play.

The previous Splatoon update has been released earlier this month. The 1.2.0 update included several gameplay tweaks which improved the experience. The first Splatoon update, which has been released right after launch, added the Port Mackerel map and the Ranked Battle mode.

In the past few weeks, Splatoon has been receiving some extra content that wasn’t included in the game at launch. Among the new content are several new weapons like the Inkbrush weapon which further expand the gameplay experience of Nintendo’s third person shooter. This weapon in particular is a unique take on the standard roller weapon that has been shown in the game’s pre-launch promotional material, so much that many thought the weapon would be included in the game from the start. That wasn’t the case, unfortunately, but Nintendo soon fixed this small issue.

Splatoon is now available in all regions exclusively on Wii U. We will let you know more about the next Splatoon update and what it’s actually going to introduce in the game as soon as more comes in on it so stay tuned for all the latest news on Nintendo’s third person shooter.

After the recent port to PS5, Microsoft is “really pleased” with the overall sales and performance of Sea of Thieves. As a result, more people are playing the Xbox and PC versions as well. Matt Booty, president of game content and studios at Microsoft Gaming, said this:. He also said that the success of the series means it can grow and that more money should be spent on a Variety podcast interview.

Microsoft is bringing four games that used to only be available on Xbox to other systems. Sea of Thieves was the last of these games to come out. The others are Pentiment, Grounded, and Hi-Fi Rush. Even though things have been going well lately, Booty says that more ports will be dealt with “case-by-case.”

News spread before the port came out that Sea of Thieves was being used as a “key test” to see if more Xbox-only games would be ported to PS5, PS4, and Xbox One. In May 2024, the game was the best-selling PS Store game in both Europe and the US. It also did well in the weekly sales charts.

Aside from the four games that have already been ported to Xbox, nothing else has been officially confirmed. However, news reports say that a lot of exclusive games may be about to come to other platforms. Some say that PS5 games like Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II, Starfield, and a rumored remaster of Halo: Combat Evolved are all being thought about.

The upcoming game from the creators of the Danganronpa series has found a publisher in Sony subsidiary Aniplex. However, it’s worth noting that it won’t be initially released on the PS5. It is highly likely that The Hundred Line: Last Defense Academy will be released on Sony’s system at a later date, just like Master Detective Archives: Rain Code in October. However, the development team is currently focusing on prioritizing the release of their latest title on the Nintendo Switch and PC.

Described as a strategy game, the title allows players to step into the shoes of teenager Takumi Sumino, who resides in the perpetually secure Tokyo Residential Complex. When monsters suddenly unleash chaos upon the town, Takumi finds himself thrust into the Last Defense Academy. His mission? To protect the school alongside 14 other students for a grueling 100 days.

As one would anticipate, alongside the strategic gameplay, it is crucial to foster strong relationships with your comrades. Moreover, the outcome of the game can vary greatly, with a staggering 100 possible endings contingent upon the choices you make. We will reach out to Aniplex to inquire about the possibility of a PS5 port. However, it is important to note that Aniplex operates independently from PlayStation, as it falls under the Sony Music umbrella.

Most new games these days have some kind of photography feature, so it’s hard to remember a time before Photo Modes. Some developers don’t think it’s important for players to be able to take pictures right away, so the feature is added later. One great example of this is Alan Wake 2, which now has Photo Mode thanks to a new update that is now available.

If you look at the trailer above, you can see that you can really get creative with your photos by adding cool borders, overlays, and filters. We always like photo modes, where you can move different lights around in the scene. As the video shows, Remedy really lets you use your imagination with the different colors and lighting props.
