Last Chance To Get Smash Bros. Ultimate's Free Piranha Plant DLC

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's first DLC character, Piranha Plant, is coming very soon. The new fighter is slated to arrive this February, and unlike Persona 5's Joker, it won't be included as part of the game's Fighters Pass. However, early adopters will be able to receive the character free of charge--but your time to get it is running out.

To receive Piranha Plant for free, you'll need to register your copy of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on My Nintendo by January 31. This was done automatically if you purchased the game digitally through the Switch Eshop, but if you picked up a physical copy, you'll need to register it by pressing the plus button while highlighting the game's icon in the Switch menu, then selecting the My Nintendo Rewards option.

Once you've registered the game, you'll receive an email containing a download code for Piranha Plant to the address linked to your My Nintendo account within 10 days. Redeem the code in the Switch Eshop and Piranha Plant will automatically be added to your game once it launches. You'll have until 11:59 PM PT on June 30 to redeem the code. If you miss the cutoff date, Piranha Plant will also be offered as paid DLC separate from the Fighters Pass.

As promised, Nintendo showcased a variety of new games on the way to Switch this year during its latest Indie Highlights video. In all, the company spotlighted nine new indie titles for the hybrid console, including a few surprise releases that are available to download right now.

The biggest surprise of the presentation was the announcement of SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech, the newest game in Image & Form's genre-spanning series. Unlike the recent SteamWorld Dig 2, SteamWorld Quest is a steampunk-fantasy RPG in which players select cards to perform attacks. No release date has been announced, but the game is slated to arrive first on Switch later this year.

Nintendo also announced a release date for Wargroove, the Advance Wars-style turn-based strategy game from Stardew Valley publisher Chucklefish. After suffering multiple delays, the title is finally scheduled to arrive on Switch on February 1, and those who have been eagerly awaiting its release can now pre-order it from the Eshop.

about X hours ago from

As part of Nintendo's "Nindies" showcase today, the company surprise-released a handful of games. Three of the games shown off during the presentation are available now through the Nintendo Eshop.

When Ski Lifts Go Wrong ($15) is a physics-based construction puzzle game that has you building--what else--ski lifts. Once they're constructed you can set them free to become used by the customers, to often hilariously disastrous results. Goat Simulator: The GOATY ($30) is a bundle that includes several Goat Simulator expansions. Finally, Unruly Heroes ($20) is an action platformer with four heroes that can be swapped in solo play or cooperatively.

The presentation had a few other surprises in store, including the announcement of SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech, a card-based RPG set in a fantasy steampunk world. It also finally revealed a release date for Wargroove, which is set for just around the corner on February 1.

Netflix: What's Coming And Going In February 2019--TV, Movies, Originals, And More (US)

about X hours ago from

January is almost over and February will be here soon, and that means Netflix subscribers have a whole new slew of movies, TV, and originals to choose from. Sadly, it also means a bunch of stuff is leaving the service as well. Starting on February 1, subscribers will find plenty of new content to binge as Netflix starts dropping new stuff.

Starting on the first of the month, Netflix will release the first three American Pie movies. The early-00s series was the most successful comedic franchise during that time. In addition, Jaws, Jaws 2, Jaws 3, and Jaws: The Revenge will be available, so you can cuddle up to that special someone to watch a great white shark eat a bunch of beach-goers--and some people at an underwater aquarium.

As far as original programming goes, there are a couple of key dates to keep in mind. On Valentine's Day (February 14), comedic actor Ken Jeong drops his first comedy special, "You Complete Me, Ho." Jeong returns to stand-up in this special and looks back on how he was a doctor and transitioned into comedy. Additionally, on February 15, The Umbrella Academy comes to the service. Based on the comic book series of the same name, the show follows sibilings who are reunited after their father's death and learn they have extraordinary powers.

GameStop Deals Include Some Big Recent PS4 And Xbox One Games

about X hours ago from

GameStop has rolled out its latest set of weekly deals, and this time it's heavily marking down recent Ubisoft games. Far Cry 5, The Crew 2, Just Dance 2019, and Assassin's Creed Odyssey are all discounted. In fact, at $15, the price for Far Cry 5 is even lower than the recent Ubisoft franchise sale on Xbox One. The older but still going strong Rainbow Six Siege is also reduced, if you've been looking for an opportunity to hop into one of Ubisoft's most successful live games.

In non-Ubisoft deals, Hitman 2 and Battlefield 5 are both going for $30, and Just Cause 4 has already been reduced to $40. If you're more in a sporting mood you can pick up FIFA 19 and NHL 19 for $40, or NBA Live 19 and WWE 2K19 for $30.

Other deals include cheap prices on deluxe editions, so you can get a game plus its bonus content for a song. Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2 Deluxe Edition is $30, and Valkyria Chronicles 4 Memoirs from Battle Edition for Nintendo Switch is $60, down from a whopping $100. Sometimes waiting pays off.
