With the release of the Nintendo Switch there have been very few games to actually play.  Sure, Breath of The Wild is accepted as an amazing game by many, but what happens after you’ve beat the game?  With games like Super Mario Odyssey and Splatoon 2 so far away what is left to encapsulate gamers besides the likes of Mario Kart 8?  Well, coming spring, it would seem like ARMS is jumping in to fight for your interest.

ARMS is one of Nintendo’s newest ideas revolving around a fantasy boxing environment consisting of characters with projectile fists of fury.  In this game, as far as has been revealed, one can play as one of five “champions”.  These champions are known as; Spring Man, Ribbon Girl, Ninjara, Master Mummy, and Mechanica.  While not the most creative of names, the artistic style and aesthetic of these characters leaves not a lot to be desired.  Each champion has their own special ability, be it mid air jumping or the ability to regain health while guarding.

Along with these characters also comes different “arms” that each have their own special attack.  Examples of this are the Toaster, which is able to charge up and set enemies on fire whilst also knocking them down, and Boomerang, which shoots at a wide arc allowing you to hit enemies around obstacles.  Further more players can mix and match these weapons as they please, two arms means you can wield two different weapons at the same time.

This game also makes full use of the joycon motion controls, similar to Splatoon.  Players use motions with the joycons in order to perform punches, guards, and grabs.

While there hasn’t been much gameplay shown quite yet, from what has been seen the game looks interesting enough. Furthermore it would seem to be generating enough hype for some people to be equating it to the popularity of Splatoon on the WiiU.

What do you think about ARMS?  Will it be a major hit for Nintendo, or will it fall flat?  Leave your thoughts in the comments down below.

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.
