Modders have successfully replaced all of Dragon Quest 11's music with orchestral tracks

Unlike the last grand console adventure in the Dragon Quest series, the music in Dragon Quest 11: Echoes of an Elusive Age is entirely synthesized. Some Dragon Quest enthusiasts were disappointed by this perceived step backwards, especially since Dragon Quest 8 on PS2 had a lushly orchestrated soundtrack. If you're among the disappointed, never fear: a mod has been released that lets you replace all the music in DQ11 with pre-existing orchestral versions of the songs.

Clementine's voice actor suggests The Walking Dead: The Final Season may go unfinished

Melissa Hutchison, who provided the voice for Clementine in The Walking Dead as well as characters in other Telltale releases like Puzzle Agent, Back to the Future, and The Wolf Among Us, has written a sad farewell to the studio that recently confirmed a majority closure. She writes, "I, unfortunately, like most of you, do not have the details on how this all came to be and I also do not know the fate of the final season of TWD. To my knowledge, they will release Episode 2 and then that will be it."

Troy Baker Will Not Voice Additional Content in Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition

Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition will be significant in that it is the first time that the additional content from the PlayStation 3 version of the game will be available to play in English. However, it turns out that not all of the original voice actors will be reprising their roles.

Footage of the English content was shown at the 2018 Tokyo Game Show depicting Yuri Lowell with a different voice actor than Troy Baker, who apparently knew nothing beforehand about being replaced.

….wow. Yeah, had no idea about this. Was never approached to do any additional lines/scenes. Pretty gutted, to be honest. Love this character so much, would’ve jumped at the chance to step into those boots again. https://t.co/nwDqJGAoWH

About four days ago, Twitter user Haniwa posted a short comic about Bowser using the new crown power-up from New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe (the same one that transforms Toadette into a Princess Toadstool look-a-like named Peachette) to reassign his gender before starting a relationship with Mario. From there, the internet went bananas.

Some have reimagined Princess Bowser as a buff and busty redhead, a determined ruler, a fanged diva, an Akuma-looking warrior, a demure and alluring office worker, or a friend to princesses everywhere. Others have used the opportunity to call back to official, canonical occurrences of Bowser's past transitions to queen status, or ponder what Princess Yoshi and Super Maria might look like. Still others have conjured up ideas of how Princess Bowser might have fared in past Mario games, or in official Nintendo infomercials, or even non-Nintendo games like Phantasy Star Online 2, and that's all still just the tip of the iceberg. Reigning Smash Bros. champ ZeRo even added Bowsette emotes to his Twitch channel fer cripes sake.
