The first Nintendo Direct of 2019 is minutes away. The live stream starts today, February 13, at 2 PM PT / 5 PM ET / 10 PM GMT (9 AM AET on February 14), and it'll provide new details on a number of games coming to Nintendo Switch this year, including "new details" on Fire Emblem: Three Houses, the first proper Switch entry in the long-running strategy RPG series. Just don't get up your hopes for any Metroid news. You can watch the stream live below.

It makes sense for Fire Emblem to feature prominently, as very little has been shared about Three Houses prior to now. Despite that, it's set for release sometime this spring, so we might get a release date in addition to a better understanding of how it plays. The reveal at E3 last year showed us it features the familiar grid-based gameplay of previous entries, but with some notable changes, such as armies battling each other in combat and a 3D world for players to explore.

Batman And Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Team Up For New Animated Movie

Batman And Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Team Up For New Animated Movie

Batman and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles might not seem like the most obvious of comic book team-ups, but they do have their similarities. Both fight crime at night in a big city, are known to inflict considerable pain on their enemies, and have animal-based superhero names (of course, the Turtles ARE actually turtles). Fans can now enjoy their first onscreen team-up in the new animated movie Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

As reported by Syfy.com, the film is a collaboration between DC Entertainment and Nickelodeon. It's based on the 2015 Batman/Turtles crossover comic by James Tynion IV and Freddie Williams II, and will see the heroes meet up via a "transdimensional encounter," and end up fighting various villains from Batman's rogues gallery.

Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles releases on 4K, Blu-ray, and Digital in late spring. The voicecast includes Troy Baker (The Last of Us), who will play both Batman and the Joker, Darren Criss (The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story) as Raphael, Kyle Mooney (Saturday Night Live) as Michelangelo, Baron Vaughn (Grace and Frankie) as Donatello, and Eric Bauza (The Woody Woodpecker Show) as Leonardo. A first image from the movie has been released--check it out below.

Metro Exodus Review - Light At The End Of The Tunnel

Metro Exodus Review - Light At The End Of The Tunnel

Beyond the dark, oppressive tunnels and radioactive surface of Moscow are the societies that emerge from a nuclear apocalypse and prospective lands habitable for new life. It's a sensible change in setting that broadens Metro's horizons, though it sometimes loses the focus the series is known for. Still, the firefights and stealth deliver a familiar and incredible tension, complemented by streamlined survival mechanics necessary to face terrifying threats. But with Artyom and friends punching a one-way train ticket in hopes of greener pastures, Metro Exodus becomes a journey more about the enduring relationships and ties that bind an earnest crew of survivors.

In the opening hours, returning protagonist Artyom is shown with a tenacious insistence that human life exists outside the metro. It gets him into serious trouble, and it's further revealed that a larger conspiracy is at play. Your departure seems all too sudden and a bit of a disservice to the hardships endured in the previous games, but the heat of the moment and gut instincts of your companions help ease you into the premise of a year-long expedition to wherever the railroads lead.
