Demo for The Touryst hits the Switch eShop

Up for a vacation?

Shin'en has made a ton of wonderful content for Nintendo platforms, and The Touryst is certainly one of those experiences. Unfortunately, it seems the game got lost in a mix of bigger games when it originally launched. Hopefully Shin'en can turn things around with the demo they just released today. It's a quick demo, but it might be enough to push people towards a purchase.

I honestly can't say enough good things about the game, so it definitely gets my stamp of approval!

Rocket League Championship Series 9 detailed

Feeling fine with season 9

The Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) is just over one week away from returning for Season 9! It's bringing a fresh coat of paint, new teams, and a longer format that will truly test the mettle of the best Rocket League teams on the planet. If you’re new here or just need a refresher of what to expect, let’s get you caught up and ready for the newest (and sleekest) season of the RLCS yet!


As mentioned previously, the RLCS will be moving to ten-team leagues for North America and Europe for the first time ever! As players have continued to get better and better at Rocket League, it became increasingly clear that an eight-team league simply wasn’t big enough for all the current and up-and-coming pros. Last season, a ten-team league was added to the Rival Series and after a successful and competitive season, it was time for the RLCS to follow suit.

In order to accommodate the move to ten teams, Season 9 League Play has been lengthened to eight weeks. Teams will play a total of nine matches over the course of the season. That’s two more matches for each team, giving them a greater opportunity to jockey for position and prove they have what it takes to make it to the World Championship.


Oceania (LPL Rocket League Oceanic Championship presented by Let's Play Live) and South America (Grand Series presented by RocketStreet) are both returning for Season 9 and both received a prize pool bump to boot! The LPL Rocket League Oceanic Championship will now sport a prize pool of $75,000, while the Grand Series will now have a prize pool of $35,000.

Qualifiers for the LPL Rocket League Oceanic Championship will take place on February 8 and 9, while League Play will begin on February 23 and run through April 5. The Regional Championship will last two days and take place on April 11 and 12. Grand Series Qualifiers (the first two were on 18 and 19) will take place on January 25, and 26. The Play-In will follow and will be on February 1. Grand Series League Play begins on February 9 and will end on March 15. The Grand Series Regional Championship will round out the South American action on March 22.

Make sure to tune in to the LPL Rocket League Oceanic Championship HERE and the Grand Series HERE.


As with seasons past, you can catch all of the RLCS action on both Twitch and YouTube all season long! RLCS League Play will be live on Saturdays and Sundays from February 1 through March 22; with the Rival Series kicking off the weekends on Fridays. Check out the schedule below:

Fridays: Rival Series airs starting on February 7 at 10 a.m. PT (6 p.m. UTC) for the European Rival Series and North America will follow at 3 p.m. PT (11 p.m. UTC)

Saturdays: RLCS (North America) airs starting on February 1 at 11:30 a.m. PT (7:30 p.m. UTC)

Sundays: RLCS (European) airs starting on February 2 at 8:30 a.m. PT (4:30 p.m. UTC)

Season 9 is just about to get underway and we have more content, news, and information to share soon. Make sure to tune in for all the RLCS action as we kick off Season 9 on February 1. We hope to see you there!

Koji Igarashi to host a Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night panel at GDC 2020

Sure to be a bloody good time

GDC 2020 is going to be packed with all sorts of panels that Switch fans will want to check out, and now another has been revealed. Koji Igarashi is going to be hosting a panel all about Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, and you can check out the official synopsis for it below.

Beginning from Kickstarter: The Development of 'Bloodstained'

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night" started from a successful crowdfunding campaign.
In this discussion, we will be explaining the differences between developing a game under a well established publisher and developing a game under a smaller independent studio. We will be focusing on the development progress and the promotional efforts by sharing real life examples from the project.

I have been in this industry for roughly 30 years and yet there are endless amount of new experiences. I hope by sharing the result of this funding method, it will help others who are planning to start a new project.

Samurai Shodown devs explain why they're bringing the game to Switch, says Safari Games handled the port

We're happy they did!

While Samurai Shodown is already out on other platforms, the title is yet to hit Switch. That'll change on Feb. 25th, 2020, when the game is set to launch for Switch. In an interview with Siliconera, Game Director Nobuyuki Kuroki explains why they wanted the game on Switch, and who helped make it possible.

Our only wish is to allow more fans of this title to enjoy the game. Since the users who played this game speak highly of it, we are confident that our fans will be pleased with this version. However, it was quite difficult to port the game while keeping 60fps, which is the core of fighting games. Therefore, we really appreciate all the hard work done by SAFARI GAMES, the company in charge of porting the game to Switch.
