Forza Developer Seemingly Confirms Mobile Game

Video game announcements are so weirdly coordinated, secretive, and orchestrated that hints or hints of hints tend to send marketing departments into widespread sighing and denial. It's a little harder to deny, however, when the developers themselves accidentally make the announcement.

In a news post from Turn 10 as part of the Forza Motorsport Week in Review, the developer tried to talk about a recent esports winner, but the wrong URL was inserted into the hyperlink. The link instead directed to a page which had info about a mobile game called Forza Street.

"Developed in partnership with UK-based studio, Electric Square, Forza Street is built from the ground up to support a wide range of Windows 10, iOS, and Android devices," the description read.

Avengers: Endgame LEGO Sets Tease Battles And More

Avengers: Endgame releases in theaters on April 26, and you know what that means: the new toys are coming! An Amazon listing for LEGO's first official toy sets give us a few ideas and lead to further questions about what to expect in the Avengers finale.

One set is based around Iron Man's hall of armor and shows several new and returning versions of his many suits. With Tony Stark last seen in dire straights in a derelict space vessel, this leads us to wonder if he finds his way home, or if these suits might potentially have different characters behind the metaphorical wheel. Additionally, the set shows a big blue mechanical suit that appears to be somewhat Hulkbuster like, and Thanos' outriders make a return to potentially finish the mission that they started in Infinity War.

Newspaper Mistakenly Uses Joke About Pokémon Gun As Real Game

Last week, Nintendo and Game Freak revealed Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, the two new eighth generation mainline games in the series. Of course, as soon as something new Pokémon is revealed, the internet gets to work with jokes, and we very quickly had people making a joke about a third version of the game titled Pokémon Gun.

However, a newspaper in Mexico mistakenly used that joke as part of their story about the game's announcement, so innocent little Grookey is now wielding hot fire. The news comes from Twitter user @cin_ceja.

New Shazam Trailer Shows A Hero In Training

New Shazam Trailer Shows A Hero In Training

The newest hero in DC's "Extended Universe" of films is only 15 years old and has no idea what he's doing. The growing pains he undergoes will hopefully be much to theatergoers' delight. Shazam releases on April 5, and the latest trailer makes it look a silly origin story that will eventually give way to darker tones. The trailer focuses heavily on Shazam (Zachary Levi) getting to know his powers as he goofs off with his best friend. This lengthy video also gives us a good look at Dr. Sivana (Mark Strong), a villain who clearly has no time for kid games.

Following the enjoyable Aquaman film, let's hope DC gets on a roll similar to Marvel with its other character-based movies. Shazam is directed by David F. Sandberg (Lights Out) with a screenplay by Henry Gayden (Earth to Echo).

THQ Nordic is responsible for publishing a number of recently released and forthcoming titles, including Metro Exodus, Biomutant, Darksiders III, and Battle Chasers: Nightwar. For more on matter, check out our News editor's opinion piece on how the industry fails to hold itself accountable here.
