The Nintendo Switch had a very solid development throughout the year. It became one of the most successful video game consoles of the year. So much so that it almost broke the number of units sold at launch marked by the PlayStation 2 many years ago.

However, with the Switch having some issues (Namely their storage and support). People question whether or not the Nintendo Switch will continue to bring the thunder in 2018. Maybe, especially considering this “Leak” made by Amazon.

As some users from ResetEra discovered, Amazon made 18 unreleased Switch titles available on their storefront. Every single one is found at a price range between $59.99 USD and $99.99 USD. They also have a release date of December 2019.

I can assume that the games with the $99.99 USD price tag are games that will be using 64 GB cartridges, which will be coming by next year. However, when you go looking for them on the Amazon Pre-Release section, you’ll see that only Project Octopath Traveller is listed.

The image provided below shows the result of the search at the time ResetEra found the leak. The first thing people might notice is the lack of a box art, this also applies to Project Octopath Traveller’s listing. The listing only shows the Nintendo Switch Logo and a reference to a Nintendo Switch Event.

A lot of people have speculated that this leak is due to a Nintendo Direct that’s going to happen in January. This is thanks to this and another leak that has shown that the Nintendo Direct got its information leaked back in November.

This other leak states that we’ll be getting more information from the Electronic Arts game Fe. That said however, there isn’t anything downright stated by either of the parties involved so we must encourage you to take this with a huge grain of salt, as there have been leaks of other games and movies that have been proven wrong.

I always wanted to be a journalist who listens. The Voice of the Unspoken and someone heavily involved in the gaming community. From playing as a leader of a competitive multi-branch team to organizing tournaments for the competitive scene to being involved in a lot of gaming communities. I want to keep moving forward as a journalist.

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.

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.

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.
