Harvest Moon: One World Announced For Nintendo Switch

Harvest Moon: One World Announced For Nintendo Switch

Natsume and Rising Star Games have announced the upcoming title in the longstanding Harvest Moon franchise, coming this fall to the Nintendo Switch. Harvest Moon: One World, like other games in the series, is all about building up a farm, hanging out with villagers, and taking on various challenges. The new title features a new engine and graphics.

The story has been hinted at - you find yourself in a world without many of the staples that we enjoy, such as tomatoes, cabbage, and strawberries. Perhaps these delicious farm foods could be discovered through research and adventure, as an old book provides some clues to discovery.

While not much else is known about Harvest Moon: One World right now, I'm interested to see where the farming fun goes when it (hopefully) takes a few new directions in the classic franchise.

What The Golf Comes To Switch On May 21

Fans of silly things and a truly ridiculous take on golf will be happy to know that Triband's What the Golf? is coming to Switch next week on May 21. 

The Switch version of the game includes a local 2-player party mode so that you can really get into the insane physics-based lunacy.  The mode is "coming first" to Switch so we may see it on other platforms later.

For the full announcement and a look at just a few of the nutty things that can happen, take a gander at the trailer below!

Star Wars Day Brings Two New Video Game-Inspired Collectibles

Star Wars Day Brings Two New Video Game-Inspired Collectibles

Star Wars Day always brings several surprises. I suspected we'd get a tease for The Mandalorian's second season today, but instead got something even better: news that Taika Waititi is directing a new Star Wars film! We also learned a new Disney+ Star Wars series is on the way from Leslye Headland. We don't know anything about either project, but it's always nice to hear more Star Wars is in the works with big names attached.

We haven't heard any news pertaining to video games yet, other than two surprising product reveals for collectors. Remember Star Wars: The Force Unleashed? Hasbro has partnered exclusively with GameStop to release a new Black Series action figure of the Shadow Stormtrooper. Even though Starkiller made short work of these troopers, their neon blue highlights made them fan favorites. The figure is available for preorder now and is slated to release on July 1.

Hasbro and GameStop are also teaming up for an unexpected (and cool) Star Wars Battlefront item: a voice-changing helmet based on the game's Shadow Trooper design. No release date is given for this product, but preorders are now live.

Call of Duty League Supports The Real Heroes Project To Recognize Healthcare Workers

Professional sports leagues like MLB, NBA, NFL, NHL and more announced "The Real Heroes Project" today, and Call of Duty League is joining them to recognize the heroes on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Big names like Seth "Scump" Abner from COD League are sharing personal messages and thank yous on social media using the hashtag #TheRealHeroes - replacing the name on their jersey with the name of a personal healthcare hero. For Scump, it's Dr. Henry Ostman. 

“I am really honored to be a part of the Real Heroes Project. It’s so important to shine a light on those on the front lines during a time like this, and to do so alongside the biggest names in sports, including my Chicago’s own Jonathan Toews, is truly special. Huge shoutout to Dr. Henry Ostman and all of our heroes owning the fight against Covid-19.”

Taika Waititi Is Directing A New Star Wars Film

Taika Waititi is one of those rare talents capable of dazzling with his writing, directing, and acting. From his work behind the camera on Thor: Ragonarok and Jojo Rabbit to his portrayal of IG-11 in The Mandalorian (of which he directed the season one finale), he's building up quite the body of work. Disney today announced the Academy Award-winning Waititi has been tapped to direct and co-write a new Star Wars film for theatrical release.

The other writer is Krysty Wilson-Cairns who wrote 1917 along with a number of Penny Dreadful episodes. No date or story details were given for this film.

On top of the movie news, Disney revealed yet another Disney+ Star Wars series is in the works. This one is helmed by Leslye Headland (Russian Doll, Bachelorette) who will also write and executive produce the series. This untitled project joins the second season of The Mandalorian, as well as the untitled Cassian Andor and Obi-Wan series slated for Disney's streaming service. Like the film, no details have been announced for this series.
