Watch An Artist Draw All 807 Pokemon In Fast Motion

There are a lot of Pokemon. A lot. And over the 350 hours and the span of 42 days, artist Christopher Cayco decided to draw them all.

Cayco started by working on an older piece, but decided that he should use his improved skills to work on an entirely new image.with all 807 Pokemon, but Cayco didn't just stop with Pokedex entries. In his exhaustive rundown of everything he drew, Cayco mentions that he also included all 48 Mega Evolutions, all the Pikachu variations, all the regional Arbok differences, and way more. The 807 Pokemon number balloons to nearly 1200 creatures when adding all the numbers up.

You can watch a video of Cayco's work below or check out a full image at his DeviantArt page. A copy of the print can also be purchased here.

Switch Version Of NBA Playgrounds Relaunches With Enhanced Edition

Arcade-style basketball game NBA Playgrounds launched on Switch on May 9, alongside the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC versions, but lacked online play due to apparent technical hurdles. After two weeks, developer Saber Interactive promised that online would be patched in eventually. Now, six months after that announcement, Saber has released an Enhanced Edition of the Switch game that just outright replaces the May release.

Titled NBA Playgrounds - Enhanced Edition, the new game/patch/mandatory replacement compiles all the post-launch content that appeared on NBA Playgrounds on the other system and the online play promised last May. These extra contents include a hundred new players from both classic and modern eras, new jerseys, revamped rebounding system, and more.

The new download is also two gigs smaller than the previous version, indicating that some work has been spent on optimizing the game to have a smaller footprint on the Switch's internal storage.

Ninja Gaiden-Like Indie Title The Messenger Announced

Developer Sabotage Studio has announced a new indie platformer, The Messenger, that invokes the NES classic Ninja Gaiden.

The new game, a sidescroller designed to look like Tecmo's tough-as-nails ninja action game, looks like a perfectly suitable spiritual sequel on its own. Perhaps unfortunately, the initial trailer spoils what looks to be the game's hook, that the story spans multiple generations of video game technology. At the end of the teaser, the main character jumps into a portal and emerges a with new armor, a spiffy new hat, and 16-bit graphics.

The Messenger is scheduled for release later this year for "PCs and consoles." Check out the teaser trailer below.
