Mega Man Battle Network 6

Capcom has been doing a very good job in making old entries of the Mega Man series available on modern hardware. Earlier this month Mega Man Battle Network 5 has been made available on the European Wii U eShop and the next entry of the Battle Network series will be made available on the Japanese eShop in just a week

The new entry of the Mega Man series launching next week in Japan is Mega Man Battle Network 6, the final entry of the series to get released on Gameboy Advance. Both versions of the game, Cybeast Gregar and Cybeast Falzar, will be available for purchase for the price of 702 yen each. We currently have no news on a possible Western release at the moment but chances are pretty high, considering other Mega Man Battle Network games such as the already mentioned Mega Man Battle Network 5 have been released outside Japan.

Mega Man Battle Network 6 is the final entry of the series and comes with several new gameplay features. One of these new features is the chip limiting system, which limits how many of the same chip players can keep in a folder. The Tag Chip System is another of the new gameplay mechanics introduced in Mega Man Battle Network 6, allowing players to tag 2 chips together to access chip combos and more. The Soul Unison system included in Mega Man Battle Network 4 and 5 also received a major overhaul in Mega Man Battle Network 6, with the Cross System taking its place. Even with all the additions, Mega Man Battle Network 6 doesn’t play all that differently from previous entries, making fans of the series feel right at home.

Mega Man Battle Network 6 will be released on November 18th on the Japanese Wii U eShop. There are currently no news on a possible Western release but we will let you know more about the matter as soon as possible.

New World Interactive, the developer of the Insurgency series of tactical first-person shooters, has laid off an unknown number of employees as part of Embracer Group’s comprehensive restructuring plan.

Saber Interactive, which acquired New World in 2020, told Eurogamer that the studio had not closed. However, it confirmed an unknown number of layoffs.

Embracer says it is “actively working to fill existing open roles” with impacted employees and will provide severance packages. “Saber also assures that development will continue on Insurgency: Sandstorm, as well as on unannounced future projects,” it said.

Over 900 employees were laid off in an “agonizing” but “necessary” process. As always, we hope all victims recover.

Sony: We Need Non-Gamers to Access Our Content

Sony wants non-console owners to access its content beyond its PlayStation-walled garden. This strategy has been slowly implemented: the company has commissioned TV and movie adaptations of its biggest franchises, ported select software to the PC, and launched a mobile gaming division.

In an interview with Nikkei, head Hideaki Nishino explained how this strategy can boost console sales: We want to use movies and dramas to get non-gamers to try PlayStation games. Sales of The Last of Us increased during the live-action drama.

When HBO’s adaptation aired, our The Last of Us content skyrocketed, so we can understand its impact. As a PlayStation fan site, we support this strategy because we want to reach as many people as possible, so if Sony can appeal to non-console owners, that’s a win-win.

More PlayStation users is better, in our opinion.

PowerWash Simulator is one of this month’s PS Plus Essentials, but before you start scrubbing, check out the PS Store. The game has been well supported on PS5 and PS4 with free DLC packs based on Square Enix titles since its release at the start of the year.

Free Final Fantasy VII and Tomb Raider expansions let you clean Croft Manor and Seventh Heaven. The free DLC packs add 10 levels, and the paid ones add more.

Two more Back to the Future and SpongeBob SquarePants expansions cost £6.49 or $7.99 each. You can then scrub the Bikini Bottom and the DeLorean.

The Midgar Special Pack for PowerWash Simulator was another reason to use the cleaning kit. “It doesn’t add much, but getting close to FF7’s props and environments is fun. It offers a fresh take on the beloved title that will please both sides of this collaboration.”
