The Outer Worlds asks players to decipher a conspiracy at the heart of Halycon, a space colony far away from Earth. The story-driven game will be full of factions who want to come out on top — and you’ll be the one who helps determine how things play out.

Two new fighters, both from SNK’s The King of Fighters series, are coming to Dead or Alive 6 on June 18, developer Team Ninja and Koei Tecmo confirmed today. Mai Shiranui and Kula Diamond will make their DOA6 debut as part of paid downloadable content.

In a gameplay trailer, we get a look at Mai’s fiery moves, many of which look familiar from past King of Fighters games — and Dead or Alive 5 Last Round, where she previously appeared as a guest DLC character. She squares off against Kasumi in a contest to see which of the two is Japan’s most powerful kunoichi.

Square Enix gave Kingdom Hearts fans a look at the future of Kingdom Hearts 3’s Re:Mind downloadable content ahead of E3 2019, revealing that the add-on will include Roxas, Aqua, and Riku as playable characters, as well as a new Keyblade transformation for Sora, Oathkeeper.

Fans also got a release window: Kingdom Hearts 3 Re:Mind is coming to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One game “this winter,” the trailer says. That could mean either later this year or early 2020, and Kingdom Hearts fans who have learned patience over the past decade should probably expect the latter.

Splatoon 2’s final Splatfest is Chaos versus Order

After two years of ongoing support for Splatoon 2, Nintendo announced that events are coming to an end. You have one more chance to pick between Marina and Pearl in what is being called the biggest Splatfest yet.

On July 18 to 21, players will vote between chaos (Pearl) and order (Marina.) Then your team will face off against the opposing concept — whoever gets the most votes and most wins takes home the gold. As always, the Splatfest will bring with it a lively concert in the Splatoon 2 lobby, and players will duke it out in a new Shifty Station stage. According to Nintendo, all previous Shifty Station iterations will also be available for the big occasion. Participating players will be able to nab some new gear, because as always Splatoon is all about staying fresh.
