Persona Q2 To Be Shown During This Week's Persona 5 Anime Episode

Persona Q2, the sequel to the Etrian Odyssey-based Persona crossover game Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth, has been missing in action since its announcement last August. Fans have been asking Atlus for more information on what might be one of the last major 3DS games, but the developer has stayed quiet, until now.

During this weekend's episode of the Persona 5 anime, Atlus will be airing a TV spot for the game during the August 4 episode of the anime, including the Japanese release date. 

The original Persona Q brought together the casts of Persona 3 and Persona 4 into a dungeon crawler based on the gameplay of Etrian Odyssey. Presumably Q2 will bring Persona 5 into the mix, too, especially considering the game's logo is the same flaming hat emblem of the Phantom Thieves. While the game has only been announced on 3DS, some digging in the website metadata suggested a Switch version, as well, but Atlus has not announced anything of the sort.

The First Ten Episodes Of The Mega Man Cartoon Are Available Now

Mega Man: Fully Charged, the first cartoon for the blue bomber since the debut of the 1994 cartoon series, has finally premiered after delays and leaks for well over a year. More than that, you can watch the first ten episodes streaming right now, provided you live in the U.S. or are otherwise located here.

The Mega Man: Fully Charged website has put up the first ten episodes for streaming, starting with "Throwing Shade Part 1" and ending with "Running Wild," which has the description of Air Man lending his support to protagonist Aki's rival for class president in the student elections. You can't beat Air Man.

The concept of the show puts a young boy in the role of Mega Man, with a Mega Mini living in his head and helping him fight off the robot masters attacking the city. The concept is fairly standard for a children's cartoon, but who knows, maybe the show itself is surprising?

Nintendo Weighs In On How To Pronounce NES

Nintendo Weighs In On How To Pronounce NES

The debate about how to pronounce NES, the three-letter acronym for the Nintendo Entertainment System, is never-ending. Or you think it ends and then Nintendo randomly decides to throw a wrench into the works. That wrench this time is called WarioWare Gold.

The 3DS collection of WarioWare's greatest hits also includes a museum mode of Nintendo history. In the Japanese version of the game, the museum shows off a Nintendo Entertainment System, likely unfamiliar to a region that got the Famicom name and form factor. In the description, the game points out that the NES is pronounced "Ness."

The information comes from Twitter account FarmboyInJapan, Kyle McLain.

A Metroid Easter Egg In DK Tropical Freeze Resurfaces After Four Years

An eagle-eyed fan has finally found a fabled Metroid in Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze. The little creature floats in the background during an underwater section in the game, hiding among the coral and other similar octopus-like creatures. While it seems like some fans spotted the little guy long ago, the Easter egg has remained in obscurity since the release.

Retro Studios has a history with Metroid as the creators of the beloved Metroid Prime series. Tropical Freeze already had another Metroid reference in the form of a more easily found Easter egg in the game already, which involved Samus' ship in the background of a level. While Metroid Prime 4 is on the horizon, Retro is not involved with the development. In fact, nobody seems to be sure what Retro is working on.

Fortnite On Android Will Circumvent The Google Play Store

Fortnite On Android Will Circumvent The Google Play Store

If you're excited to get Fortnite on your Android device, don't start looking for it in Google's Play store. Epic Games has decided to release Fortnite as a direct download on Android systems, which is an unusual move. This means that players will have to download Fortnite through an installer directly off the game's official website sometime later this year.

Epic's CEO Tim Sweeney told GamesIndustry.biz that the studio was motivated by economic efficiency.

"The 30 percent store tax is a high cost in a world where game developers' 70 percent must cover all the cost of developing, operating, and supporting their games," Sweeney said. "There's a rationale for this on console where there's enormous investment in hardware, often sold below cost, and marketing campaigns in broad partnership with publishers. But on open platforms, 30 percent is disproportionate to the cost of the services these stores perform."
