Jotaro Kujo And Dio Coming To Jump Force

Bandai Namco has revealed two new characters for Jump Force, the upcoming crossover fighter featuring characters from all number of Shonen Jump manga. You can't have a Jump crossover without some representation from Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, however, and it makes sense to bring in the series' biggest villain and its most popular protagonist.

Yare Yare Daze...

Dr. Mario World Coming To Mobile Devices This Summer

Dr. Mario World Coming To Mobile Devices This Summer

As part of their financial release today, Nintendo has also announced another mobile title aiming for a worldwide release this summer. Titled Dr. Mario World, it is presumably a larger expansion of the Dr. Mario concept of putting colored pills onto viruses to destroy them.

The title is one of two announced mobile games currently on Nintendo's slate, including the now-delayed Mario Kart Tour, meaning that both games are slated to come out in Nintendo's next financial year. Dr. Mario World is scheduled for early summer, while Mario Kart Tour is just a broader summer schedule.

Dr. Mario World is part of a new partnership between Nintendo and multi-pronged Japanese software platform LINE. This is Nintendo's third mobile game partnership, including DeNA and CyGames.

Report: Nintendo To Release Revised Version Of Switch This Fiscal Year

Report: Nintendo To Release Revised Version Of Switch This Fiscal Year

The Nikkei, a Japanese financial newspaper, is reporting, after much speculation, that Nintendo will release a revised version of the Switch sometime in its 2019 fiscal year. The fiscal year runs from April 1, 2019 - March 31, 2020 with the report suggesting it is slated for fall, but could find its way out as early as this summer.

Few other details were given about this revision other than it will be focusing more on the handheld aspect. Other features are supposedly going to be removed to help cut costs, but nothing concrete was offered as to which features would be getting removed. The rumors have suggested a slimmer frame and better battery, which sounds likely for a remodel of Nintendo hardware.

Nintendo home consoles don’t tend to get revisions nearly as drastic or with nearly the same frequency as their portables do, but if this is in fact going to be a more focused handheld device, then maybe this also means we are finally at the end of the 3DS’s long life. This would allow them to sell a dedicated handheld to families that just want something for their children and a home console for everyone else. The difference this time out is that it would have a completely unified software library.

Darksiders Warmastered Edition For Switch Officially Announced

Darksiders Warmastered Edition For Switch Officially Announced

Update: As expected, THQ Nordic has confirmed the release of Darksiders Warmastered Edition for the Switch. The company has also added a release date: April 2. The game will be available both at retail and digitally for $29.99.

Also, the leaked trailer below is now official, so you can enjoy it again or for the first time by scrolling down.

Original Story: While it has been rumored through retail listings for a month or so, it seems like THQ Nordic is ready to announce that the HD remaster of the first Darksiders game is coming to Switch before too long. This version has previously been released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Wii U, but has not come to the Switch since its release in November 2016.

Nintendo Switch & Its Software Enjoying Success

Nintendo Switch & Its Software Enjoying Success

Nintendo has released its financial results for the last nine months (ending December 31, 2018), and everything is going swimmingly with the Switch selling 14.49 million units worldwide – an increase of 19.5 percent from the previous year during the period.

On the software side, Nintendo is celebrating "record sales" from Super Mario Party (5.3 million units), Pokémon: Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee (10 million), and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (12.08 million). It's worth noting that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate released on December 7 but still racked up the sales numbers.

According to Nintendo, the Switch has 20 million-selling titles from first- and third-party publishers, and software sales during the nine-month period increased 100 percent.

Mario Kart Tour Delayed

Mario Kart Tour Delayed

Nintendo has delayed the release of mobile title Mario Kart Tour from the end of the fiscal year (March 31) to some undisclosed time this summer.

Not much is known about the game, but Nintendo has said, like Mario Run, Mario Kart Tour will be "free to start."

Perhaps related to that comment, the company says the delay aims to improve the game's quality, but also to "expand the content offerings after launch."

Super Mario Bros. 3 Mid-Boss Boom Boom Comes To Mario Tennis Aces

Super Mario Bros. 3 Mid-Boss Boom Boom Comes To Mario Tennis Aces

There aren't many enemies that can stand up to Mario's powerful stomp, but Boom Boom has always been pretty good about trying to do so. The officer in Bowser's army usually takes three hits in the head before he bites it, so maybe a nice relaxing game of tennis is exactly what he needs. 

Slated to arrive in an update this week, Boom Boom is joining the game as a defensive character, which makes sense because he's nigh-invulnerable from the Y-axis...unless you have any sort of item, then he falls apart like a house of cards. But that doesn't appear to be the case here, as you can see from the trailer below.

The update containing Boom Boom also includes the Boo Hunt co-op challenge and new balance updates to the game to help keep the competition alive, which is important because competition is how you access the character early. If you participate in February's online tournament, Boom Boom unlocks early for you; if not, you get him on March 1 regardless.

Overwatch Announces New Paris Assault Map

Blizzard has just announced a new Assault map for Overwatch taking place in the city of love Paris, France. Though there's likely a lot less love and a lot more storming areas for objectives. That's still pretty Parisian, historically speaking.

Chance encounters lead to novel beginnings.

The map is now live on the Playable Test Realm, so if you're a part of that, you can jump right in and check it out. For everyone who wants to wait for the full release, though, here's a quick look at what the new map looks like.

Report: Darksiders Warmastered Edition Coming To Switch

While it has been rumored through retail listings for a month or so, it seems like THQ Nordic is ready to announce that the HD remaster of the first Darksiders game is coming to Switch before too long. This version has previously been released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Wii U, but has not come to the Switch since its release in November 2016.

The announcement trailer was found by the Australian Nintendo website VOOKS, which picked the trailer off THQ Nordic's wesite , clearly announces the HD remaster for Nintendo Switch. While no official PR has been released, and thus no real details, it doesn't seem like the port is particularly far off.  You can watch the accidentally uploaded trailer below.

Funnily enough, the trailer has been taken down and replaced it with this gif.

Overcooked 2 Getting Lunar New Year Content

Overcooked 2 Getting Lunar New Year Content

There's probably no end to the number of relationships, friendships, and families that Overcooked has broken up, but that's also probably because there doesn't appear to be an end to actual Overwatch content. It seems every few months that Team 17 and Ghost Town Games have new levels to announce for the title and it seems that this time the theme is the Lunar New Year. Move over, Overwatch, there's other Over- prefix games in town doing Lunar New Year events.

The teaser really doesn't say much, but there's probably not a whole lot of details they can really add in here. There will be new Overcooked levels with a new theme and likely new dishes that will make you yell at people like you're Gordon Ramsey. That plus the fact that it's free is pretty much all you need to know.

Overcooked 2 is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC.
