Amiibo

Several amiibo figures will be released next month in North America, including new figures of the Super Smash Bros line and more. Some of the figures will be only available by specific retailers while others will be available everywhere.

A few hours ago it’s been confirmed that the Ganondorf, Zero Suit Samus, Olimar and 8-bit Classic Mario figures will not be available for pre-order in GameStop stores. According to a memo sent to GameStop management, each store is going to receive a limited amount of figures which will be available for purchase on September 11th, with limited quantities will also being available on the GameStop website on the same day. More details on the matter will be coming in the upcoming weeks and we will let you know more as soon as possible.

The Ganondorf, Zero Suit Samus, Olimar and 8-bit Classic Mario figures aren’t the only ones launching next month in North America. Nintendo confirmed a few days ago that the Dr.Mario and Bowser Junior figures will also be released next month. The Retro 3 Pack, including the Duck Hunt, R.O.B. and Mr. Game & Watch figures, will also be released next month. This pack, which is a GameStop exclusive, has been originally made available for pre-order a few days ago and it’s still available online so you still have a chance to get the pack if you haven’t pre-ordered it in the past few days.

New details on the Mii Fighters figures have also been revealed earlier this month. The figures will be released sometime this November and not during September as originally revealed.

More on upcoming amiibo releases and restocks are always coming and we will keep you updated on them as soon as possible so stay tuned for all the latest news on the successful Nintendo figures.

After about a month of work, a couple of Google employees have successfully hacked the PS Portal, PlayStation’s handheld streaming solution. Their project is not set for public release anytime soon, but the hack is purely software-based, eliminating the need for hardware exploitation.

Andy Nguyen, a cloud vulnerability researcher, and Calle Svensson, a security engineer, shared their latest project on Twitter. They successfully ran the PSP emulator PPSSPP on the PS Portal. They presented the 2005 PSP classic Grand Theft Auto: Liberty Stories.

As a wireless streaming device, the idea of playing games on the PS Portal without a PS5 providing the power was considered impossible. It’s quite surprising how quickly Nguyen and Svensson have overcome this initial hurdle. It remains to be seen where their efforts will take them, but we will definitely keep an eye on their progress. Nguyen expressed that there is still a lot of work left to do.

Lady Gaga, also known as Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, has teased an upcoming collaboration with Fortnite Festival set to be unveiled soon. More pertinent to our specific attention to detail, Gaga has also admitted to a mistake made around four years ago, indicating her keen awareness of the franchise’s significant value.

Gaga shared a mesmerizing picture of her character in Fortnite and also retweeted a post from 2019 where she asked her fans, “What’s fortnight?”. She finally got the chance to correctly spell the title of the game, allowing us to breathe a sigh of relief after waiting anxiously.

Lady Gaga will be teaming up with other top celebrities to maximize their presence on the Fortnite platform. Travis Scott once hosted a live concert in Battle Royale a couple of years ago, while the Weeknd just premiered the music video for the song “Popular” at the Fortnite Festival.

Reflecting on Street Fighter 5’s tumultuous launch, Capcom looks back eight years later

For those who may not recall, nearly eight years ago today, Street Fighter 5 was released in 2016 in a rather incomplete state. The content available was impressive initially, but the limited number of characters and lack of single-player game modes stood out. Capcom expresses regret for the entire situation, offering apologies years later for having “betrayed” players’ expectations.

On SF5’s eighth anniversary, the developers must be feeling nostalgic. They recently posted a Japanese-language tweet looking back on the mistakes made and the challenges that were eventually overcome. The number of playable characters has grown to 45, and the game has seen various enhancements, including the introduction of new abilities such as V Skills/Trigger II and V Shift. Even now, hundreds of thousands of players still choose to play this game instead of the newer Street Fighter 6.
Have you had the chance to try out Street Fighter 5 since it was first released? What do you recall about the game’s reception? Take a trip down memory lane in the comments section below.
