Niantic Targeting This Year For Pokémon Go PVP

Niantic Targeting This Year For Pokémon Go PVP

The developer behind Pokémon Go announced the game in September 2015 with a host of features for the game that it didn't launch with. One of them, trading, only came to the game recently. Another one was PVP, for which Niantic has confirmed they're targeting before the end of 2018.

In an interview with Polish publication Gram, Niantic head of marketing for Europe, Middle East, and Africa Anne Beuttenmüller confirmed that PVP is something the developer is working on. Though translation software, Beuttenmüller said that PVP is the next thing they want to add and hope to get it out by the end of 2018. 

It's not clear yet what PVP will look like, as the initial reveal trailer showed group battles as something more turn-based than what the actual game's battling ended up being. It could end up just being a race to see who can tap faster, but Niantic hasn't tipped their hand on what it might be yet.

Someone Just Got 100% On Every Zelda Game And It Only Took 500 Hours

Someone Just Got 100% On Every Zelda Game And It Only Took 500 Hours

Beating a Legend of Zelda title is often treated as a rite of passage. Whether that game is Ocarina of Time, A Link to the Past, or Twilight Princess (my shamefully late introduction to Hyrule), Link's adventures are some of the most iconic stories in all of gaming. 

By that metric, player "MC" might have more gamer credibility than anyone else on the planet. Over the course of a year and 484 hours, they completed every single canon, singleplayer Legend of Zelda title ever released. That means every heart piece, every hidden bug, and all 900 Korok seeds. 

MC did an AMA on Reddit yesterday that included interesting tidbits such as:

Report: Supergirl Is Next Up For Her Own DC Movie

Deadline is reporting that Supergirl will be the next DC property to get a movie in Warner Bros.' latest attempt at massaging their superhero movies to be lighter and less dour. 

The movie is reportedly being penned by Oren Uziel, who was behind screenplays for the recent reboot of 21 Jump Street and the now-filming Sonic the Hedgehog

Supergirl, also known as Kara, was a Kryptonian that fled the planet as a teenager before its destruction, but remained in stasis until arriving on Earth. Her origin and personality have been finessed in different adaptations and by different writers and she played a pivotal role in Netherrealm Studio's recent Injustice 2.

Nintendo Places The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild On Series Timeline

Nintendo Places The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild On Series Timeline

This past weekend, Nintendo updated their Japanese Zelda website, which contains an official timeline of the series so far. This update was the first placing of Breath of the Wild, the open-world Zelda game on the Wii U and Switch, on the official timeline.

While the last mainline console game in the series, Skyward Sword, is still at the very earliest point in the timeline, Breath of the Wild contrasts that by getting placed at the very end of the timeline. Maddeningly for some fans, the website does not indicate whether Breath of the Wild takes place after the Victory/Failure split of Ocarina of Time. It in fact completely dismisses the question entirely as not mattering.

When the director of the game Hidemaro Fujibayashi was asked in which timeline the game took place last year, he demurred and left it up to the interpretation of the player. So it seems Nintendo isn't concerned with the answer or doesn't think the player should be.

Square Enix Is Teasing Something Related To Bravely Default

Square Enix Is Teasing Something Related To Bravely Default

The success of Octopath Traveler, which has sold over a million copies so far, has proven that there's still a huge audience of old school JRPG fans out there. It looks like there might be more of that old school grinding and leveling on the way to sate their hunger, too.

The official Twitter account for the Bravely Default tweeted out a statement yesterday celebrating the performance of Octopath Traveler. Though Bravely Default is from another studio than the one that developed Octopath, they both have the same publisher and embrace classic JRPG aesthetics and philosophy. The tweet thanks people for buying the game and then teases an silhouette of Bravely Default's cryst-fairy.

Street Fighter V Trailer Shows Off Sagat And Presidential G For The First Time

Street Fighter V Trailer Shows Off Sagat And Presidential G For The First Time

Before the Street Fighter V tournament at Evo 2018, Capcom producer Yoshinori Ono introduced G, Street Fighter's southern gentleman president. The trailer also confirmed Sagat as the final DLC character for the season. Both characters release tomorrow, so no waiting. Well, a few hours of waiting.

G looks to be a completely unusual character with presidential-themed attack names and the look of an Abraham Lincoln-lookalike on a budget. You won't have to suffer like G did if he makes everyone else suffer instead.

Sagat brings a pet tiger with him, but also a new design into the world of Street Fighter V. He's back with all the tiger fireballs, uppercuts, and knees he's well known for.
