Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu And Let's Go, Eevee Demo Added To Nintendo Eshop

Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu/Eevee came out last November, but in case you missed it or finally have some time on your hands to give the game your attention, Nintendo has added a demo to the eShop.

Players can explore Viridian Forest, collect Pokémon, and battle trainers with either Pikachu or Eevee (the demo picks one at random). However, your progress in the demo does not transfer to the full title if you buy it.

Steam To Remove Video Section From Store

For the last several years in addition to selling games, Steam also sold movies in a video section. Though the section included hits like John Wick and The Conjuring, it was never packed to the gills with big releases and trailed behind other platforms that sold videos online like Amazon. Today Steam revealed that it was removing the section after conducting a review that unsurprisingly showed its customers were much more interested in gaming content

Here's the statement in full:

US Government Stole Yoshi's Island Music For Flash Game About Recycling

The United States' Environmental Protection Agency has an educational flash game on its site called Recycle City Challenge. That in itself is not special. However, what is interesting is that when you clicked the Let's Get Started button, a familiar tune for Mario fans played.

Keen-eared listeners have noted that the song in the background is taken from Yoshi's Island DS. The song no longer plays in the flash game (having probably been removed) but we've heard it with our own ears, and there was no mistaking it was this tune:

The Verge reached out to the EPA for comment after the incident. Here's what the EPA told the publication:

Untitled Goose Game Has Been Delayed

Untitled Goose Game Has Been Delayed

The Untitled Goose Game from developer House House just slipped from its early 2019 release window. The window wasn't given a more concrete time frame to replace it. House House just says the game is coming "later 2019."

Untitled Goose Game looks to be a fun indie game that has you playing as said goose and causing trouble for people by stealing their things or generally being an obnoxious goose. Little details were given as to why the game is missing its target other than "circumstances beyond our control." The developers promise in the tweet announcing this that it will only serve as cause to make an even better game in the end, so we'll just have to wait and see when the game comes out later in 2019 for Switch, PC, and Mac.

You can read our preview of the game here as well or see what other indie games we're looking forward to this year.

Chrono Trigger Director Working On New Square Enix RPG Oninaki

At the most recent Nintendo Direct, Square Enix announced Oninaki, a new RPG from developers Tokyo RPG Factory. Unlike their previous games I Am Setsuna and Lost Sphear, Oninaki is varying things up a little with a different kind of battle system and tone. It's also getting a pretty big dose of veteran talent with Takashi Tokita, best known as director of Chrono Trigger and Parasite Eve.

According to Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu, which had a spread on the new title this week, Tokita is on the project as a creative producer. Tokita will be sharing the role with Hirotaka Inaba, writer for Level-5's Fantasy Life and Tokyo RPG Factory's previous two games. Oninaki is being directed by Atsushi Hashimoto, a programmer for popular visual novel 999 and designer for Kid Icarus: Uprising.

You can check out a trailer for the game below, or read our interview with Tokita about why he would "love to see" a new version of Chrono Trigger.
