Nitara confirmed for the upcoming Mortal Kombat movie

A lesser-known character joins the roster

Greg Russo, writer of the upcoming Mortal Kombat movie, has confirmed that Nitara is going to be a part of the film. Nitara isn't the most recognizable name for the Mortal Kombat franchise, having debuted in Deadly Alliance, and most recently appearing as a cameo in Mortal Kombat 11. Looks like the character will now have a chance to really break through in the film, and she'll be portrayed by Elissa Cadwell.

Just Dance 2020 on Wii outsold the PS4 and Xbox One versions in the UK

Can't stop the Wii!

Just Dance 2020 made its debut on the UK software charts at spot 15, and that's for all platforms combined. The Switch version accounted for 55% of those total sales, making it the #1 platform. Here's where things get interesting though. The Wii version of Just Dance 2020 managed to account for 21% of total sales, while the PS4 version sat at 14%, and Xbox One at 10%.

With Ubisoft recently announcing that Just Dance 2020 was their last Wii game, they might want to rethink the stance with these figures!

Believe it or not, a Diablo game almost released for the Game Boy

Diablown away

Diablo is a long-running franchise for Activision Blizzard, and is certainly loved by millions of fans around the world. It took quite some time for Nintendo fans to get a taste of Diablo via Diablo III on Switch, but it turns out we almost had a chance to go hands-on with an exclusive Diablo game back in the Game Boy days.

As crazy as it seems, there was actually a Diablo title in development for the Game Boy. This would be a game tailor-made for the Game Boy, looking to give Nintendo fans a taste of Diablo's grand adventures on a bite-sized scale. Unfortunately, after a number of months, the call came from higher-up to can the project, as Blizzard had never released a game on cartridge before, and they were worried about a number of factors.

If you want to read more about what the project offered, and how it came to an end, make sure to check out the feature here.

The official Super Mario UK Twitter account is apparently extending the month of Luigi into November

The month of Luigi continues!

Earlier in October 2019, the official Super Mario UK Twitter account decided to turn themselves into a Luigi account. They originally said they were making the move to support Luigi in the month of Oct. for the upcoming release of Luigi's Mansion 3.

Well here we are 11 days deep in November, and the Super Mario UK account is still running with the Luigi name, and still posting Luigi-only content. I guess they've decided Luigi deserves more than one month!
