A Hat In Time DLC And Co-Op Announced, Switch Version Coming Soon

Gears for Breakfast has released a new video about their 3D platformer A Hat in Time, which is filled to the brim with news, including for new DLC, new modes, and a Nintendo Switch version.

The trailer, which you can see below, announces a brand new DLC expansion for the game titled Seal the Deal. There's also new time rifts introduced to the game, and a "Nostalgia Badge," which filters the game to look like a N64 platformer. If you're a fan of visual filters, you will enjoy the new ones added to the game's photo mode.

As mentioned before, the trailer also mentions a new split-screen co-op mode, as well, and finally announces the Switch version. A Switch port has been denied multiple times since the game's release last year by the developers, but it appears they have finally acquiesced to Switch fans hoping for a release. It is only listed as the "near future," however.

Dead Or Alive 6 Adds Hitomi And Leifang, Along With A New Pirate Ship Stage

KOEI Tecmo and Team Ninja have released a new gameplay video of Dead or Alive 6, showing Hitomi and Leifang together on a pirate ship complete with a Kraken hiding beneath the surface.

The new trailer shows both characters, who were treasure hunters in the previous Dead or Alive game, likely continuing their newfound occupation in a gold-filled ship. One of the stage hazards appears to be a Kraken tentacle reaching out and slamming your opponent into the bowels of the ship.

Hitomi was introduced in Dead or Alive 3 in 2001, while Leifang has been a mainstay of the series since the very first game in 1996. The two returning characters follow up an already-introduced roster that includes Kasumi, Ryu, Jann Lee, and newcomer Diego.

Bloodstained Delayed To 2019, Vita Version Cancelled

Bloodstained Delayed To 2019, Vita Version Cancelled

Bloodstained, a Kickstarted game from former Castlevania head Koji Igarashi, will not be releasing until 2019, Igarashi as announced. Additionally, the game will not be releasing on the PlayStation Vita as originally planned.

While the target date for the game was 2017, it slipped to 2018 after original developers Inti-Creates were taken off the project. Inti-Creates still continued work on the NES-styled prequel Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon, while Igarashi's employer ArtPlay continued developing the title. Today the game was officially delayed to 2019, confirming suspicions that it would not make it out this year.

When the Kickstarter campaign was launched, Igarashi included Wii U and Vita stretch goals, despite neither system supporting Bloodstained's use of Unreal Engine 4. ArtPlay contracted Armature studio, former Retro Studios developers that made games like Arkham Origins: Blackgate and Recore, to port Unreal Engine 4 to the two older systems and thus allow the game to work there. The Wii U version was cancelled in favor of the Switch last year, but the Vita port remained at the time.

Grand Strategy Title Stellaris Heading To Consoles

Grand Strategy Title Stellaris Heading To Consoles

If you like grand strategy games, your platform of choice has always been limited to PCs. Outside of a few games like Civilization Revolution, the genre has been dramatically underrepresented on consoles. Paradox Interactive has plans to test these uncharted waters by migrating its space exploration strategy game Stellaris to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Stellaris: Console Edition promises to bring the full PC experience to the new platforms courtesy of developer Tantalus Media. Both the standard and deluxe editions (the latter of which includes the Plantoids Species Pack, plus the upcoming Leviathans Story Pack and Utopia Expansion) are built off version 1.7, and Paradox promises to support the game with new DLC moving forward.

Stellaris: Console Edition currently has no release date. You can read our review of the PC game here.
