Leaks of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet are already visible 11 days before their official release Spoiler Alert!

More than a week and a half before the game’s scheduled launch, previously unheard Pokémon Scarlet & Violent content is already beginning to leak.
Although The Pokémon Company usually keeps its games under wraps before they are released, it appears that some copies of its most recent game are now in the hands of the general public, raising the possibility of spoilers.

Around the time of writing, or nearly eight hours ago at 1 am GMT on Sunday, leaked screenshots had only begun to circulate on social media.

A few minutes later, YouTuber Austin John Plays published a “PSA” video notifying viewers that leaks had just begun to surface and cautioning them that they would probably start to proliferate on social media.

Given that many of the screenshots that have leaked feature dialogue in Spanish, the primary source at the moment appears to be from a Spanish-speaking nation. These screens include a number of Pokémon that have not yet been publicly revealed.

A social media user compiled screenshots and posted them for a few hours before deleting them, urging their followers to preserve and repost the photographs.

The photographs may soon be extensively shared on social media, which could make it difficult to avoid them.

With only 11 days until the game’s release, Nintendo and The Pokémon Company will be worried that the game already seems to have found its way into some players’ hands. For the time being, the leaks seem to be limited to one or two sources.

It’s not the first time in recent years that the Pokemon series has been the victim of a high-profile leak: When Pokémon Legends: Arceus was released in January, dozens of players were already streaming the game on Twitch a week before the official release date thanks to a build of the game shared on piracy sites.

Twitch users also began live streaming beta versions of Pokémon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl in November 2021, up to ten days before their publication.

In February 2020, Nintendo publicly severed connections with a Portuguese website after it was discovered that it was responsible for some pre-release Pokémon Sword and Shield leaks. This was the most well-known Pokémon leak incident to date.

Ten million people play The First Descendant in its first week

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, 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.
