Every Game Announced For Switch During The LRG3 2020 Broadcast

Every Game Announced For Switch During The LRG3 2020 Broadcast

During yesterday’s LRG3 broadcast by Limited Run Games, it was revealed that nearly 30 games will be coming to Nintendo Switch in physical form. That’s a lot of games, so let’s go through them one by one. The games are listed by release date. Also, any title with an asterisk next to it is part of LRG’s distribution line, which means it’s selling these games on behalf of the publisher. These physical editions are not created by LRG and thus aren’t a part of its numbered releases (just FYI for those of you who are trying to keep a full collection going).

There are a couple of games worth some extra special attention here. First off, both Shantae and Xtreme Sports will be getting official reproduction Game Boy Color cartridges. Yes, you read that right! So if you’re like this writer and failed to obtain an original copy of either game back in the day, now is the time to redeem yourselves. Another entry that caught our eye is the “More River City Girls,” which as of this moment is… a total mystery! One we hope to hear more about soon, naturally.

So! That’s a ton of physical games to look forward to! Which ones will you be picking up? Tell us in the comments and on social media!

Donkey Kong Country Finally Coming to Nintendo Switch Online

Donkey Kong Country Finally Coming to Nintendo Switch Online

It only took forever, but nearly two years after the launch of Nintendo Switch Online, Donkey Kong Country is officially coming to the service. Developed by legendary UK studio Rare, Donkey Kong Country was a major head-turner when it launched back in 1994. Of particular note were the gorgeous pre-rendered graphics used to give the game its stunning 3D-esque visuals. It was a major turning point for Rare and remains one of the funnest games ever released on SNES.

Street Power Soccer Coming This August

Remember FIFA Street from back in the day? That game put an emphasis on freestyle, street-level soccer and was part of EA’s lineup of other, similar titles like NBA Street and NFL Street. In a similar spirit comes Street Power Soccer from SFL Interactive and Maximum Games. Take a look:

Here’s what to expect from the game:

Street Power Soccer comes out August 25 on Nintendo Switch. There’s a physical version of the game that will be made available, as well. We’ll let you all know more as soon as we learn it, but until then tell us what you think in the comments and on social media!

Physics-Based Puzzle-Platformer Biped Out Now

Physics-Based Puzzle-Platformer Biped Out Now

If there’s any action that players tend to take for granted in most games it’s basic movement. Press the control stick forward, watch the character march in that direction. In Biped, from Russian developer NExT Studios, movement isn’t quite so straightforward. Give the trailer a look:

As you can see, the player character’s legs are each controlled with one of the control sticks on the controller. This makes simply navigating the game world a unique (and entertaining!) challenge, as a result. The game is also a co-op experience, so if you’re itching to play something with someone else, this could be the software you’ve been waiting for.

Biped is available now for Nintendo Switch via the eShop, so if you’re interested, be sure to consider giving it a download! In the meanwhile, tell us what you think of Biped down below.

Preorders Open for the First 4 Figures Majora’s Mask PVC Statue

First 4 Figures (F4F) always impresses with their beautiful, high-quality video game statues, and their latest addition is no exception. They’ve opened up preorders for their PVC statue, The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask — Majora’s Mask PVC Statue [Exclusive Edition].

This 12″ statue is smaller than their life-size resin replica of Majora’s Mask, which gives it the option of being wall mountable. The eyes of the Exclusive Edition have two LED modes (static and pulsing), which can be switched via motion sensor. The statue’s logo base features static and animated LED lights; the static mode emits white light while the animated mode cycles through five colors (white, red, yellow, blue, and green).

Take a closer look at our The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask – Majora’s Mask PVC statue, hosted by Liz of First 4 Figures! Everything you need to know (and more) can be found in the link provided. https://t.co/3v6sN0nen9#Nintendo #TheLegendofZelda https://t.co/ZXVuarv8Ne

Evo Online Has Been Canceled

Evo Online Has Been Canceled

Evo 2020 was originally set to take place in Las Vegas this year, but after the physical event was canceled due to COVID-19, organizers planned to move it online across multiple weekends in July. Now Evo Online has been canceled as well amid accusations of sexual misconduct that have been levied against the organization’s CEO, Joey Cuellar.

On July 1, FGC Mikey “Crackpr0n” Pham accused Cuellar of repeatedly preying on underage boys in the early 2000s. Pham claimed that in 2001 when he was 17 and Cuellar was 23 or 24, they were at an arcade in Southern California that was popular for fighting game competitions; after a conversation in which the players present were discussing penis sizes, Pham claimed that he was “above average,” Cuellar bet Pham $20 he was not and asked to see Pham’s genitals in person, and the pair went to the arcade’s bathroom, where Pham showed himself to Cuellar and Cuellar paid him the money.

On July 2, Evo announced that they were completely cutting ties with Cuellar and replacing him with co-founder Tony Cannon as acting CEO:
