Kirby Gets Another Classic 4-Player Adventure For Switch

Kirby is an adorable pink ball of fluff. He’s so cute that he deserves to be shared with friend. In the little vacuums' next adventure, you’ll be able to play with up to three friends.

Nintendo just announced that it is developing a new 4-player Kirby game. We don’t know much about this title, or even it’s final name, but it looks to feature classic Kirby gameplay. We watched Kirby swallow enemies to steal their powers. We also saw Kirby use the power of friendship to turn enemies into friends. Using this ability, players will be able to amass a gang of up to four companions that will help them overcome all of the game’s challenges These companions can either be other players or computer-controlled allies.

Unfortunately, Kirby fans won’t need to round up their friends until 2018.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Coming This Year, Story Detailed With New Trailer

After opening the show with a few brief clips of well-covered games like Splatoon 2, Arms, Pokkén Tournament, and a surprise appearance from Rocket League, Nintendo truly opened its Spotlight presentation with Xenoblade Chronicles 2.

The game is still on track for holiday 2017, and the trailer details some of the game's story. The protagonist is on a journey to bring a woman, who is also a sword, to Elysium. Over the course of the trailer distinct environments like beaches, snowy areas, and forests were shown, as well as an assortment of creatures and animals. Dragons were flying through the air, along with rideable creatures. It also looks like the game's protagonist will be carrying a cat in his backpack through the course of the adventure.

Super Mario Odyssey's Creators Don't Dismiss Guest Appearance From Donkey Kong

There have been numerous references to Donkey Kong in Super Mario Odyssey since the game's unveiling earlier this year. The city Mario explores is called New Donk City, which is only two letters away from Donkey, and street signs in the game point to Diddy Kong and Dixie Kong. During our Breath of the Wild coverage back in February, we also asked Miyamoto if Pauline lives in New Donk City, to which he replied, "I think so."

We can now confirm, without a doubt, that Pauline not only lives in New Donk City, but is its mayor. That in turn prompted the question – did Pauline wrestle power away from Donkey Kong in Donk City and proclaim herself the mayor and rename it New Donk City? “[Laughs] Well, that’s not the setting that we’ve come up with,” said Kenta Motokura, director of Super Mario Odyssey.

In order to simplify the questions we simple asked, will Donkey Kong make an appearance in Super Mario Odyssey? “Well I can’t say exactly right now," Yoshiaki Koizumi, Odyssey's producer, "But Pauline is there and you know… some interesting things might happen.”

There were a lot of highly anticipated games at Sony's E3 presser last night. However, one of the notable absences was The Last Of Us 2, to the chagrin of many fans.

Creative Director Neil Druckmann tweeted out a statement concerning the lack of a showing from the sequel:

Believe me, we're super excited to show you more of Ellie and Joel's 2nd journey, but right now it's Chloe and Nadine's time to shine.

How Capybara Games Is Helping Build The World Of Cartoon Network's OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes TV Show

Ian Jones-Quartey loves video games. He grew up playing them as a kid, and over the years has amassed an enormous library of trivia and inspirations from the medium. Despite this love, Jones-Quartey's career has mostly been in television, working on a number of nerdy Cartoon Network shows like The Venture Bros., Adventure Time, and Stephen Universe. But with the show he's currently spearheading, OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes! Jones-Quartey is finally putting that knowledge to use.

As we've previously reported, OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes is both a TV show and video game, the latter of which is being developed by Sword and Sworcery and Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes developer Capybara games. The show (which debuts this August) showcases a clear love of classic games like Mega Man and Street Fighter, so it was only natural to set a game in the show's universe. But more than any of its other properties, Cartoon Network sees video games as a core part of the OK K.O.! series.

Supermassive Games announced several new PlayStation VR titles during Sony's E3 press conference this evening. In addition to the psychological-horror title The Inpatient, the studio is working on a first-person shooter called Bravo Team. 

The trailer looks like a fairly standard FPS; perhaps the addition of VR and Aim-Controller support will elevate the experience.

Sony Gives A First Look At Gameplay For Insomniac's Spider-Man

Insomniac's Spider-Man, coming to PS4, was announced at last year's E3. Today at Sony's press conference, we got a first look at gameplay, showing Marvel's Spider-Man scale a tall building under construction, impressively swinging from his web, and taking on a slew of enemies.

We see Spider-Man cheat death as a crane falls apart and we watch him hijack a helicopter by jumping on top of it. He also takes out gangsters in a variety of ways, including pulling them or choking them with his web.

A glimpse of what looked like Miles Morales was shown at the end, who is an alternate version of Spider-Man. You can check out the trailer below.
