Nintendo Confirms Luigi Did Not Die Today Despite Clearly Dying

If you watched the Super Smash Bros. Direct this morning, you might remember that the Simon Belmont trailer started with everyone's second favorite Mario brother found himself in over his head in Castlevania. After fleeing from some monsters, Luigi comes face to face with Death himself, who slashes Luigi and takes his soul likely for banishment purposes. I mean, his name is Death.

In true Sakurai form, Luigi was not seen elsewhere in the entire Smash direct, because he was dead. It's sad, but sacrifices had to be made. At least that was the common thought, but Nintendo has put everyone's worries to rest.

Luigi is okay

New Rainbow Six Siege Season To Feature Two New Operators

We recently named Rainbow Six Siege one of the games most improved by free updates, and it looks like Ubisoft Montreal is planning to continue that trend. In the game's next major update, "Operation Grim Sky," players can look forward to new operators, graphics modifications, and map reworkings. 

Gameplay details are sparse on the new characters, but we do know a little of their backstories. The first is a British Defender, specializing in "mob behavior and snatch-squad tactics." The second, an American Attacker, has a "remarkably sharp mind" for tactical operations. 

The Hereford Base map will be adjusted to make it more suitable for competitive play, and new modifications will be introduced to fix a common issue with weapon sight misalignment.

Pokémon Lets Go! Titles Will Include Mega Evolutions

First explored by Pokémon X and Y, the rare and powerful mega evolution mechanic will be part of a trainer's toolbox in the upcoming Switch titles, Pokémon Let's Go, Eevee! and Pokémon Let's Go, Pikachu!

If a Pokémon's trainer has the appropriate mega stone it can mega-evolve, but the change only happens during the course of one battle. The news comes our way via Japanese magazine CoroCoro, which shows the mega evolutions of Charizard, Blastoise, and Venusaur.  You can thank Pokémon fansite Serebii, who helped spread the word by quickly posting screens from the magazine to confirm the news.

 The Dreaming City is the new endgame area for Destiny 2: Forsaken. Here players will not only be able to complete the raid, but also engage in high-power level patrols, public events, and more.

The new trailer also showcases the Blind Well, Forsaken's answer to the Court of Oryx from The Taken King, alongside the abyss which seems to feature a dark and sinister side to the gorgeous Dreaming City.
