Time Is Of The Essence

Customization – whether it's visual or via multi-faceted weapons – is a big part of God Eater 3 (PS4 and PC), and what better way to rise to a fight against the Aragami than with a co-op crew ready for the occasion?

The game is out very soon – February 8 – and its latest trailer shows off timed Assault Missions featuring eight players. The task? Taking down powerful foes within a five-minute time limit.

Assault Missions aren't the game's only multiplayer. For more on this front, check out Imran's hands-on impressions of God Eater 3. Also check out this previous trailer.

Another Titanfall Game Coming This Year, New Twist On Universe

Just yesterday, Respawn confirmed that Titanfall 3 is not in development, and Apex Legends is currently their focus in terms of Titanfall games. Turns out that's not the entire story, though the whole story still likely does not involve Titanfall 3. In their earnings call today, EA revealed that there is one more Titanfall game coming out this year aside from Apex Legends, though it is seemingly not a traditional Titanfall game.

In prepared remarks, EA CEO Andrew Wilson talked a little bit about the success of Apex Legends, which is the bright shining spot in an otherwise bummer year for the company despite only being a day old. "As the live service evolves," Wilson stated, "Respawn also plans to launch a premium game this year that is a new twist on the Titanfall universe. More to come on that in the months ahead."

In this context, "premium" means a paid game, not a free-to-play title like Apex Legends.

Nintendo Switch Online NES Titles For February Are Super Mario Bros. 2 And Kirby's Adventure

Nintendo Switch Online NES Titles For February Are Super Mario Bros. 2 And Kirby's Adventure

Nintendo has revealed the two NES titles coming to Nintendo Switch Online this month, adding to their library of classics accessible from the Switch app. This month, players can download Super Mario Bros. 2 and Kirby's Adventure, two major games for some of Nintendo's most iconic series starting on February 13.

For the second month in a row, Japan is getting three games while other regions only get two, with Japan also getting a sumo title. For the first few months of the service, Nintendo had put out three games a month, but seems to be in a pattern of only doing so for the Japanese region at this point. It hearkens back to Nintendo's regional releases for the Wii Virtual Console where Japan would get a number of releases that either came months later or not at all to America.

Super Mario Bros. 2 was originally a licensed platformer named Doki Doki Panic. Fearing that the real Super Mario Bros. 2 was too hard for American fans, Nintendo reshaped Doki Doki Panic into a Mario sequel, making for an extremely strange sequel. To avoid confusion, fans either call this release Super Mario USA or refer to the Japanese Super Mario Bros. 2 as Lost Levels, based on its name from Super Mario All-Stars.
