Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze Removed From Wii U Digital Store

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Retro Studios' 2D platformer from 2014, has been delisted from Nintendo's Wii U eShop in North America today.

Fans on the Wii U subreddit noticed it missing today, which seemed rather abrupt as people have been able to buy it as recently as yesterday. The top comment points out that Nintendo's website, which previously sold digital and physical versions of a game, has been updated to only sell physical versions.

We have confirmed both these changes ourselves on the Wii U eShop and website.

Report: Pokémon Go Team Working On Gen IV, New Level Cap, And More

Report: Pokémon Go Team Working On Gen IV, New Level Cap, And More

In the nearly two years since Pokémon Go released, developer Niantic has continually evolved the experience. Doctor PoGo, a hardcore player who sat next to Niantic CEO John Hanke on a flight, claims Pokémon Go is on its way to its next stage of evolution.

According to Doctor PoGo, Niantic is working on several changes, including the addition of Gen IV Pokémon and a new PvP system. In addition, die-hard players will delight in a new level cap beyond the current cap of 40. Also, if you've ever wanted to submit a Poké Stop for consideration in the game, that ability is also on the horizon, which could help players outside of major cities and parks to enjoy the game more. Hanke also reportedly told Doctor PoGo that Niantic will be cracking down on cheaters and spoofers even harder than before.

Perhaps the most unexpected news is that Niantic is going to try its hand at Pokémon Go Fest once again. You may remember last year's Pokémon Go Fest in Chicago, which was such a disaster that Niantic issued refunds, gave attendees $100 in in-game currency, and reportedly settled a lawsuit stemming from the event to the tune of $1.5 million.

Sonic Mania Adventures Second Episode Now Available

The incredibly charming animated shorts centered around Sonic Mania has added a second episode online.

Sonic Mania Adventures, a decidedly confusing but appropriate brand name, had a first episode a few weeks ago where Sonic found out Eggman was searching for the chaos emeralds, as he tends to do. In the second episode, Sonic finds Tails along the way and then just dashes off on his own without his fox buddy in tow.

Fortnite Season 4 Coming Tomorrow

Fortnite Season 4 Coming Tomorrow

After about a month of teasing, Fortnite season 4 is at least being shown tomorrow and will bring answers to all the questions Epic has been raising.

Meteors started showing up earlier this month above Tilted Towers, causing fans to go crazy with speculation over what it could mean. Amidst the ensuing confusing and conversation, Epic added jokes and signs to the roof of Tilted Towers and started making the meteors impact on the surface.

The meteors caused little to no damage to the actual stage, but considering the teaser image and the "brace for impact," it seems likely something is becoming a crater and superheroes are emerging from it. Regardless of how it turns out, it looks like tomorrow will be the end of all the fan questions and speculation over the last month.

New Solo: A Star Wars Story Featurette Reveals A Surprising Amount Of New Footage

Today Disney released a new behind the scenes featurette for Solo: A Star Wars Story where Donald Glover, Ron Howard. Emilia Clarke, and others talk about how excited they are for the movie.

The interviews themselves are probably a little boring. However, for some reason, intercut between all these interviews is mostly new footage of the movie that hasn't been in previous trailers, including some nice scenes where Han jokes with Chewie and Lando.
