Detective Pikachu Cast And Director Reveal The Movie's Logo At The 2018 Pokémon World Championships

Today, during the opening ceremonies of the 2018 Pokémon World Championships, the lead cast and director of the upcoming Detective Pikachu movie appeared on stage to reveal the film's logo and to get the audience to chant, "Pikachu!" You can check out the photo gallery below for photos of Justice Smith (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom) and Kathryn Newton (Blockers), who are playing the film's two leads, and director Rob Letterman (Goosebumps) at the event. Unfortunately, Ryan Reynolds, who will be providing Pikachu's voice in the movie, was not in attendance.

 We still don't know much about the movie, Detective Pikachu, but some photos from the set did leak at the beginning of the year, which you can see here.

If you’re excited to have Blizzard’s blockbuster lootfest on your Switch, you’re not the only one. Nintendo worked closely with Blizzard to move Diablo III over to its portable system. In fact, Nintendo had practically been waiting for Blizzard to make the call.

“The Switch came out and we were all playing it,” says Blizzard associate producer Matthew Cederquist. “Some of us were playing Mario and some of us were playing Zelda, and we were kind of thinking to ourselves, ‘We’ve got a pretty good game for this.’ We all travel a lot and we were sitting on a plane and thinking, “We’ve got the perfect game for the Switch.’ So we brought the pitch to Nintendo and they said, ‘What have you guys been waiting for?’ They were pumped. They were as excited as us.”

However, Diablo III isn’t a small game. It’s currently over 14 GB on PC, which is almost half of the Switch’s internal memory, so Blizzard knew it would have to trim the game a bit to fit it on Nintendo’s portable system – not to mention optimize its processing power.

Destiny 2's Forsaken Raid Arrives One Week And A Half After Expansion

A lot of Destiny players are looking forward to the next major expansion soon. Forsaken launches on September 4, which isn't too long now, but people looking forward to the raid won't have to wait too long after. Destiny 2: Forsaken's first raid, Last Wish, will arrive shortly after September 14.

Bungie shared the first details in a blog post today.

"Forsaken is proof that the full Destiny 2 experience is just beginning when the campaign comes to a close," senior designer Joe Blackburn wrote. "With so many new things to do and so much Power to gain, we knew that players would need more than just three days to prepare for the incredible challenges of Forsaken’s raid. That’s why “Last Wish,” the next chapter in Destiny’s raiding legacy, goes live on September 14 at 10 a.m. PDT, a week and a half after you’ll have first set foot on the Tangled Shore. Good luck, Guardians."

Nintendo's Shigieru Miyamoto Warns Against Exploiting Customers

Nintendo's Shigieru Miyamoto Warns Against Exploiting Customers

Shigeru Miyamoto, creator of some of gaming's most iconic series and overall creative shepherd for Nintendo, is warning the industry that getting too greedy could end up badly long term.

In remarks to the Computer Entertainment Developers Conference in Japan, Miyamoto talked about the general trend of the industry, recorded in a Bloomberg report. “We’re lucky to have such a giant market, so our thinking is, if we can deliver games at reasonable prices to as many people as possible, we will see big profits,” Miyamoto told the audience.

That statement does come with a caveat, however. “I can’t say that our fixed-cost model has really been a success,” Miyamoto added. “But we’re going to continue pushing it forward until it becomes entrenched. That way everyone can develop games in a comfortable environment. By focusing on bringing games to the widest range of people possible, we can continue boosting our mobile game business.”

Epic Trying To Encourage Two-Factor Authentication In Fortnite With Exclusive Emote

Have you ever received emails about someone trying to break into your Epic account? With Fortnite being so popular, it's a pretty common occurrence for a lot of players, especially those that signed in once or twice to try the game and never touch their account again. Epic really wants you to enable two-factor authentication to help combat this, but not a lot of people are willing to undergo the extra hassle.

So Epic is seemingly going to give people an exclusive emote for locking their account doors. The news was found by a Fortnite news Twitter account that finds new updates to the game.

If you enable Two-Factor Authentication for your Epic Games account, you'll unlock the Boogie Down skin! #Fortnite pic.twitter.com/BES6Mf23MX

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Trailer Shows Off PC Features, Blackout Open Beta September 15

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Trailer Shows Off PC Features, Blackout Open Beta September 15

Call of Duty has had an up and down relationship with the PC gaming community, but Activision is hoping to make some overtures for Black Ops 4 by showing off the game's PC features.

In the trailer, which you can see below, ultrawide monitor support is confirmed by adjusting the aspect ratio on the game footage. The game also supports native 4K resolution and an uncapped framerate.

Additionally, the trailer confirms that the Blackout mode will be getting an open beta on PC on September 15. Preorders get access to the beta, which gives us the first glimpse at Call of Duty's take on the battle royale formula. Black Ops 4 joins Destiny 2 as one of the few non-Blizzard games on Battle.net, making it more of an Activision Blizzard launcher than just Blizzard itself at this point.
