Nintendo Restarting The Development Of Metroid Prime 4

Nintendo has announced that it is restarting development of Metroid Prime 4 for the Switch, partnering up with original series developer Retro Studios to work on the game.

In a special video, Shinya Takahashi, Nintendo senior managing executive officer, says the project – first announced at E3 2017 – so far hasn't met the company's standards. Going forward, the internal development producer, Kensuke Tanabe, will work with Retro to start over on the project.

Almost a year ago, a report surfaced that a development branch of Bandai Namco in Singapore was working on the game, but Nintendo did not make any official announcements on the matter. 

Report: Resident Evil Series Coming To Netflix

Report: Resident Evil Series Coming To Netflix

With only hours until Resident Evil 2 releases, it seems like there might be more Resident Evil news in the pipeline already. In what appears to be a very nascent deal, Deadline reports that Capcom has begun discussing details with Netflix for a Resident Evil series on the streaming service.

According to Deadline, the series isn't going to just be a retelling of the story of the video games, but rather an expansion of the universe outside of the usual group of bioweapon-killing near-superhumans that the series has been focusing on for years. Instead, it will look more at things like the Umbrella Corporation and the creation of its various genetic experiments.

It is not clear yet whether the series is animated or live action. While there have been successful animated adaptation of video games on Netflix, like Konami's Castlevania, the live-action Resident Evil movies by Paul W.S. Anderson were fairly large successes, each turning a profit.

PUBG Introduces A Free-To-Play Lite Version

Lower hardware requirements means more players can play a game. PUBG Corporation and Bluehole are hoping a new lite version of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds will bring new PC players into the fold. Work on this version began in October, and it's now available in a beta test. Interestingly, this version is entirely free, whereas the standard version is still $29.99 on Steam.

As of now, the amount of content in the test is considerably less than the core offering. More content will be offered over time (including exclusive things not found in the other versions), but if you jump into the test, you'll only find one map, Erangel, with solo, duo, and squad avenues of play. PUBG Corporation's Lite Team seems pleased with the progress so far, saying "We have made the game to be playable even on low specification requirements like computers and laptops with integrated graphics."

The minimum and required specifications are listed below:

Ubisoft Making Changes To Unpopular End Of Assassin's Creed Odyssey Shadow Heritage DLC

Ubisoft Making Changes To Unpopular End Of Assassin's Creed Odyssey Shadow Heritage DLC

Earlier this month, Assassin's Creed Odyssey's second premium DLC release, Shadow Heritage, prompted Game Informer senior reviews editor Joe Juba to recommend players steer clear from the entire arc. While one of the points is that it doesn't add cool or meaningful content, another major reason is an odd turn the story takes. This sentiment was shared by enough in the community to prompt Ubisoft to apologize. Now, the developer has announced it's working on a revision to Shadow Heritage.

According to the post on the Ubisoft forums, the developers are making, "changes to a cutscene and some dialogue in Shadow Heritage to better reflect the nature of the relationship for players selecting a non-romantic storyline." The changes will also include altering the name of one trophy.

Ubisoft says the changes are being made now and will be implemented in a future patch. The team is also looking at how the choices made in Shadow Heritage can affect the next DLC release, Bloodline, to ensure narrative consistency.
