'Overwatch' pro suspended for 'racially disparaging' emote

In January, Dallas Fuel pro Felix "xQc" Lengyel drew a suspension for violating the Overwatch League's Code of Conduct while streaming for using an anti-gay slur, and now he has been suspended again. The League announced that this four-game suspension is because Lengyel "repeatedly used an emote in a racially disparaging manner on the league's stream and on social media," and used "disparaging language" toward casters and other players on his stream and social media.

PS4 zombie survival game ‘Days Gone’ delayed until 2019

Kotaku UK has confirmed that Days Gone, the PS4-exclusive peripatetic post-apocalypse game from SIE Bend Studio, has been delayed until 2019. The title was announced in mid-2016 but we first got our hands on it at E3 2017, where a gameplay demo showcased a bit of the the not-zombie (they're "freakers") game's open world and sneaky survival action. It's unclear how far into 2019 Days Gone's release window has shifted, as its website simply lists its launch date as next year.

'Undertale' marks the arrival of GameMaker Studio 2 for Switch

During the Nintendo Direct stream we also learned that Undertale ("the friendly RPG where nobody has to die" and one of our favorites from 2015) will come to the Switch "eventually." While that's great for fans of the game, it's also good news for developers and fans of other games built using the same GameMaker Studio 2 platform. If you're not familiar with the software, it's similar to other widely-used middleware like Unity, however this one is built for use by people who might not have programming or game creation experience. Other games built using versions of the tool include popular titles like Hyper Light Drifter, Hotline Miami and Spelunky.

'Fortnite Battle Royale' is coming to phones and tablets

Fortnite has rapidly gained ground on the battle royale-style champ, PUBG, and now Epic Games has announced it will launch a mobile version on iOS and Android. Amazingly, it's supposed to be the same game as we've seen on other platforms, and there's even a promise to support cross-play and cross-progression with the PC and PS4 versions of the game. Unfortunately, the Android version is coming "in the next few months," but sign-ups to play on iOS will open Monday and begin rolling out soon after. Compatible iOS devices include iPhone 6S/SE, iPad Mini 4, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2 and iPad 2017 running iOS 11.

'Mario Tennis Aces' hits the Nintendo Switch on June 22nd

Nintendo said that we'd get Mario Tennis Aces on the Switch this Spring, and now it looks like the company is stretching that deadline a bit. The game will actually land on June 22nd, one day after the season officially ends. We won't hold that against Nintendo too much though, because it looks to be a unique entry in the Mario Tennis franchise.

The first WarioWare game in five years comes to 3DS in August

We last saw a new WarioWare title, Game & Wario, way back in 2013 on the Wii U. During today's Nintendo Direct the company finally ended that drought and announced WarioWare Gold for the 3DS. Yes, you read that right -- it's heading to Nintendo's eight-year-old handheld, which is still going strong even as the Wii U winds down in favor of the Switch.
