Square Enix Expects A Major Game Release Later This Year

Square Enix recently released their financial reports for the last quarter and took questions from investors about how the company is doing business. In one of those questions, the publisher behind games like Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, Tomb Raider, and more indicated that there are some big things on the horizon.

While the company refused to go into details, for the upcoming 2020 financial year, Square Enix president Yosuke Matsuda asked people to look to the road to E3 later this year for more announcements. On its own, this is a fairly innocuous statement, but it is combined with an expectation of extremely high revenue income in the third quarter, which would be around winter of this calendar year.

When asked about why the company expects such a huge boon in the third quarter, Matsuda wouldn't answer.

Apex Legends Draws Heavy Inspiration From Popular Anime

Do you love anime? How about One Punch Man – a show about a powerful but aloof superhero wannabe? Well if you do, you aren't alone. The team at Respawn may have hewed too close to a character from One Punch Man in their design of Apex Legend's Wraith. See if you can spot the similarities between Wraith and One Punch Man's Speed-o'-Sound Sonic, in the comparison shot above.

This isn't the first hint that Respawn contains some anime fans. Titanfall's story of a soldier befriending his robot companion may have taken inspiration from Gargantia of the Verdurous Planet, a show that follows . . . a soldier fighting alongside and befriending his robot companion.

Read our review of Apex Legends, or you can learn about how Respawn has pushed for more diverse characters here.

Apex Legends Loot Now On Twitch Prime

Twitch has announced that one of the benefits of Twitch Prime will now include Apex Legends loot, similar to how the service provides items for games like Overwatch, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, and Fortnite. Players who have a Twitch Prime membership, or an Amazon Prime membership connected to Twitch, can get a legendary skin and five gear packs.

Apex Legends is coming to Twitch Prime: link your account now and you’ll unlock five Apex Packs and the legendary Omega Point Pathfinder skin: https://t.co/8AlASmiDgT pic.twitter.com/DLhGrTrtyi

Pathfinder players will find the legendary skin to be the most attractive option. The five packs might also be good for players looking for just more general cosmetic variety but haven't been keen on paying for it in-game without knowing what they might be getting.

PUBG Mobile's Crossover With Resident Evil 2 Is Live

PUBG Mobile's Crossover With Resident Evil 2 Is Live

PUBG Mobile launched its new crossover mode with Resident Evil 2 today, called Zombie: Survive Till Dawn.

The new game type, which comes as part of the 0.11.0 patch, still pits you against 59 other players, but in a 30-minute match taking place over the course of three days and two nights. A number of Resident Evil 2 enemies also make an appearance, including lickers and undead police officers. Infamous bosses like G1 and the Tyrant will appear as well. G1 spawns in PUBG Mobile's version of the police station from Resident Evil 2, and the Tyrant crops up randomly at night around air drops.

During the day, you can farm zombies for resources, but when the sun sets, enemies become more aggressive, making PvP interactions a little trickier with new threats and reduced visibility.
