Nintendo Labo Contest Winners Include Zelda Piano And An Accordion

Back in April, Nintendo announced a contest for people to take their newly-purchased Labo kits and decorate them in interesting and creative ways. In the three categories Nintendo set (Best Decorated Toy-Con, Best Toy-Con Mod Using Toy-Con Garage, and Best Original Invention Using Toy-Con Garage), three winners were chosen in each category, so we'll show off a few right here.

One of the winners of the Best Decorated Toy-Con is this Zelda-themed piano with a Master Sword sticking out the top.

For best mod, this entry made a Simon Says out of the Labo house.

Konami Announces Shonen Jump Stadium For Mobile Platforms

Looking forward to Jump Force but feel like it needs a much more super-deformed artstyle? Konami might have your back with the newly announced Jump Stadium, a four-player Smash Bros.-like for mobile phones. 

The announcement trailer goes through characters by the decades and shows off every single character, including a number of deep dives and a lot of obvious choices. You can check out the trailer below.

A western release has not been announced, but it's not terribly difficult to download games from other regions on your phone. It is also likely that the game will have more characters added to it as time goes on, so the base roster is likely to expand even further.

Stranger Things Season 3 Teaser Invites You To The Mall

It feels like Stranger Things' second season just came out, but Netflix is already teasing the third season with a commercial for Hawkins' Starcourt mall.

The commercial is about as 1980s as you can get, complete with nostalgia of stores long past, cool guys standing around with walkmans and sunglasses on inside, and neon signs. Check out the short teaser below.

The teaser ends with "Coming Next Summer!", so that is likely the target date for season three. Where do you expect the show will go next year?

Ubisoft Announces Hungry Shark World For PS4, Xbox One, And Switch Available Tomorrow

Ubisoft has revealed that mobile title Hungry Shark World will be coming to consoles on July 17 after 500 million downloads on mobile.

The Shark series, created by Ubisoft studio Future Games of London, has had multiple games on mobile platforms, with Hungry Shark World being the sixth. Hungry Shark World lets players swim around, fight other sharks and aquatic life as multiple types of shark, and obviously eat people. You can check out the announcement/launch trailer below.

While the title is free to play on mobile, it is unclear what the pricing structure will be on consoles. Ubisoft did explain that the game will be optimized for consoles and also run better on the PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X than the base consoles.

Getting through the Mega Man X games, especially some of the later ones, can be fairly difficult. If you're someone who gets frustrated by one-hit kills, bosses that seem to track you when short-hopping and take out half your lifebar, or infrequent checkpoints, the games can be hair-pullingly tough to play through with a lack of time.

Mega Man X Collection is thus introducing Rookie Hunter Mode, a difficulty toggle which can be done per game or for every game in the main menu. In Mega Man X 1-3, the mode simply halves the damage you take. In 4-8, it also prevents you from instantly dying to spikes bottomless pits. Much like Mega Man Legacy Collection's various modifiers, you can simply choose not to use it if you don't need it.

Additionally, the trophy/achievement lists for the collections have come out, hinting at a secret image for players to find. Almost exactly a year ago, Capcom included an image of what turned out to be concept art of Mega Man 11 inside the Mega Man Legacy Collection, so perhaps they are doing something similar again.

14-Minute Uncharted Fan Film Stars Nathan Fillion And You Can Watch It Right Here

For years, Nathan Fillion has been on the lips of many Uncharted fans when it comes to answering the question, just who would play Nathan Drake? The premise of Fillion, who gained fame playing Captain Mal in Firefly and later Richard Castle in Castle, playing the role of Drake has existed purely in the realm of speculation...until now.

Film director Allan Ungar uploaded a 14-minute fan film to YouTube that stars Fillion as gaming's cockiest explorer. We don't want to spoil too much here but if you're into Uncharted, you should definitely make time to watch this.

Well, there it is! Nerd culture's most popular Nathan as Nathan Drake. How did he do? Let us know in the comments below.

Rogue Trooper Gets A Movie Helmed By Warcraft Director Duncan Jones

Rogue Trooper Gets A Movie Helmed By Warcraft Director Duncan Jones

Duncan Jones teased his next project on twitter with a small trailer that heavily implies he's working on Rogue Trooper. The Hollywood director even goes as far as shaving a blue mohawk into his hair, one of the elements of the comic book series. 

Originally an '80s comic series published in 2000 AD, Rogue Trooper follows a futuristic, genetically manufactured super-soldier by the name of Rogue, who is seeking revenge for his fallen comrades at the hands of their general. His fellow soldiers have been downloaded into his gear and accompany him on his quest for vengeance. 

Duncan Jones' teaser mentions 2000 A.D., the year Rogue Trooper takes place and even the universe it resides in. Jones leaves nothing to the imagination. 

Metal Gear Film Director Teases Movie Info Coming Soon And Shares Fan Art To Celebrate The Series' Anniversary

Metal Gear Film Director Teases Movie Info Coming Soon And Shares Fan Art To Celebrate The Series' Anniversary

The details surrounding the upcoming Metal Gear film (we still don't know if it deserves the 'Solid' suffix yet) are vague, but as far as we know, it is truly happening and Kong: Skull Island director Jordan Vogt-Roberts is attached to make it. We also know that Vogt-Roberts is a big fan of Metal Gear and takes every opportunity he can to make sure everyone knows.

The most recent example comes from a recent (and ongoing) series of tweets from Vogt-Roberts. On Friday, he pointed out that Metal Gear released 31 years ago and to celebrate the occasion, he is sharing some of his favorite fan art. He also partnered with actor Paul Eiding, who played Colonel Campbell in the series, to create a codec-style conversation detailing exactly what Vogt-Roberts is doing with his twitter fan art twitter thread. Through the voice of Eiding's Campbell, Vogt-Roberts also makes it clear,  "We must stress that this is, quote 'fan art,' and is not meant to represent what is or is not in the forthcoming film." But hey – if this is the kind of art Vogt-Roberts associates with Metal Gear, then it's a pretty safe bet to assume he will try to emulate some of it for his film.

You can check out the full tweet thread here, or below.
