Following a release on PS4 and Xbox One, THQ Nordic is releasing the remastered version of De Blob on Switch this year.

The game features single-player as well as 4-player splitscreen complete with eight multiplayer modes.

Our Take Given that THQ Nordic has also announced De Blob 2 already for PS4 and Xbox One, I expect the sequel come to the Switch at some point as well.

Splatoon 2 Starter Edition Inking Its Way Into Retailers Next Month

Next month, Nintendo's third-person ink shooter, Splatoon 2, will be getting extra goodies in the Starter Edition.

This package comes with the full game, a 100-page strategy guide, and two sheets of Splatoon stickers. It's priced at $59.99, same as the standalone game, and will launch March 16.

In other Splatoon news, Nintendo on Sunday randomly revealed Pearl and Marina amiibo that will launch in a two-pack for $24.99 later this year. Goby Arena, a new map modeled after a basketball court, and a weapon set called Dark Tetra Dualies, which allows players to dodge roll four times in a row and shoot, are "coming soon" through a free update. The next Splatfest, which kicks off February 16, pits the power of greed against the power of love.

Harry Potter Director To Helm Five Nights At Freddy Adaptation

Most videogame-to-film adaptations are prone to being shelved or never make it out of conceptual development. With a Five Nights and Freddy's movie having been in talks for the past three years, it wouldn't have been outlandish to see it fall through the cracks. However, the project is moving forward with The Hollywood Reporter announcing that Chris Columbus - director of the first two Harry Potter films and Pixels - will be leading and writing the movie alongside producer Jason Blum, who has worked on Get Out, Insidious, and other horror-themed films. Freddy Fazbear's already got an actor's chair reserved for him, as seen in the tweet below from Blum's production studio. The game's creator Scott Cawthon is still involved in the making of the adaptation as a producer.

Blanka Comes Out Of The Cage For Street Fighter V

Blanka Comes Out Of The Cage For Street Fighter V

Street Fighter V's third season of DLC was officially unveiled with six characters teased all at once during last year's Capcom Cup finals. Since then, Sakura was released in January and now it's Blanka's turn to tear up his opponents on February 20.

The veteran character will receive a curious story where he is adjusting back to society with his beloved mother. When a salesman offers to make him famous by producing a doll in the fighter's likeness, apparently things will get hairy as a consequence. Blanka retains signature traits such as his rolling attacks and electricity, but the former has been implemented for his V-Trigger attacks, which allows him to stun opponents in the air. He will also be released with color variants of three skins: Battle Costume, Story costume, and Nostalgia. He will be available individually for $5.99 and be available at no cost if you purchased the game's season pass. You can read more about his altered moveset by clicking here and watch the gentle giant in action in the footage below.
