Indie action game Pizza Possum has been announced for a Nintendo Switch release during the 2023 Future Games Show Spring Showcase. In this game you play as a pesky possum eating as much as you can while trying to avoid guards. Right now it’s just listed as “coming soon”, so stay tuned for more specific info on the release date for this one.

Life is good when you are a possum. You can eat all you want, and there is no one who can stop you. Well, except for all the guard dogs patrolling the village you’re in. But really, who are they to stop you. Besides, if you get chased, a quick hide in the bushes will often do the trick and get them off your scent. So what are you waiting for? Time to eat!

A new commercial for the Japanese eyedrop brand Rohto has aired featuring footage from Street Figher II. Rohto has really gone the extra mile here, as this isn’t just a clip from the original game. The ad features new editing and animation to depict fighters Ryu and Dhalsim using the product to restore their tired eyes.

It’s a brief commercial, but it’s surprisingly well made, gets the point across quickly and leaves an impact! The characters in Street Fighter probably do need to refresh their eyes from time to time in order to stay in top fighting shape. Watch the full ad above and see what other differences you can spot from the original game.



In addition to a great library of games, the Nintendo 3DS had some very cool apps intended for creative pursuits like art and music. Now, just days before the official closure of the 3DS eShop, animator Wayne Unten has shared an animated short he created using only those apps.

Unten works at Walt Disney Animation Studios and says he spent various moments of free time over the past two years working on this short, titled “Toadal Disaster”. It’s a cute little short featuring a witch practicing some spells with her pet toad. The apps used to create it include Butterfly: Inchworm Animation II, Colors! 3D, Flipnote, and Korg M01D.

Click here to watch the animation in full. It’s an impressive piece of work, especially considering the hardware used to create it! If you’d like to produce your own masterpiece using these 3DS apps, be sure to download them soon before you lose your chance.

A co-op platformer called Alice Sisters has just launched a new Kickstarter campaign to fund a release on Game Boy Advance. This retro throwback game was previously released on SEGA Genesis and the Dreamcast, and now developer OrionSoft is looking to expand its reach.

The game was designed with 2-player co-op in mind, and you’ll be able to enjoy that mode using two Game Boy Advance systems connected via Link Cable. Best of all, you’ll only need one cartridge in order to share the game, so you can bring a friend along easily.

At the time of this post, the campaign has received around $5,500 of its $21,433 goal, with 25 days left to go. You can back the project for $16 to receive a GBA ROM of the game, $43 for just the physical cartridge, or $59 for the cartridge with a box and manual. There are also options for other console versions such as the PlayStation 1.

The evil “Dark Boss” from the big mountain captured the mom of Alice and her sister, again. Help Alice and her sister save their mother through 28 levels spread over 4 unique worlds. Fight against several ennemies and defeat the 4 evil bosses of each worlds!

  • 4 unique worlds

  • Cute graphics
  • An auto save system



Some new Kingdom Hearts artwork has cropped up online following the special Kingdom Hearts Second Breath concert which was held in Tokyo this past weekend. The artwork appeared in pamphlets handed out to the audience, and was created by Shiro Amano who also worked on Kingdom Hearts’ manga adaptations. It features characters from the in-game group Organization XIII performing a concert of their own. Check it out in full below.

As an added treat, here’s a shot of another piece of artwork by artist Tetsuya Nomura featuring Sora conducting. None other than Masahiro Sakurai himself took this photo! After attending the concert, he remarked that “Conductor Kaoru Wada’s movements are youthful and amazing”. Sounds like a great event!

Hogwarts Legacy currently has no companion system, meaning you’ll have to tackle all of its missions by yourself without any friends by your side. However, players have managed to discover a number of dialogue clips which seem to indicate that this was a planned feature, but was cut before the game’s release.

A mod for the PC version of the game enables a rudimentary companion option, allowing you to take your classmates with you on various missions. What’s revealing about these missions is that several of the characters have voice lines which only make sense in the context of them joining you, something they aren’t able to do in the official version of the game.

See the screenshot below for an example from Reddit user _SeventyEight, featuring the line “Following floating candles into the Forbidden Forest? Well, then. After you.”


Other players have reported hearing similar lines from various characters when approaching specific areas of the game. As of now, developer Avalanche Studios hasn’t commented on whether or not a companion option was meant to be in the game, or if it could be coming in a future update. However, with a AAA game of this size, it’s not surprising that some things had to be cut.

Hogwarts Legacy will be available on the Switch on July 25, 2023.

The Persona series’ director and producer Kazuhisa Wada recently sat down for an interview with Sega Asia. Wada discussed the Persona series’ evolution, as well as its recent transition to consoles like the Nintendo Switch with Persona 5 Royal and other titles. Here’s a portion from the interview in which he mentions the challenges involved with getting the game running on less advanced hardware:

Q: With how different the hardware is for each platform, I imagine that porting P5R to the Nintendo Switch was quite a difficult process.

Wada: Yes, SEGA really saved us there. [laughs] Thanks to their help on the technical side and in other ways, we were able to fully optimize P5R for all platforms. [As previously reported, Sega assumed the lead on the development of Persona 5 Royal‘s ports.]

Q: What else was difficult about preparing for a multi-platform release?

Wada: Unlike consoles, Steam is used on an endless variety of hardware and specs, so taking care of the framerate was our first task. Also, a surprisingly large portion of users prefer to play RPGs with a mouse and implementing mouse and keyboard support with the UI was quite difficult.

Another challenging aspect was managing version control for multiple platforms all at the same time.

Luckily, SEGA was there to provide their expertise in the adaptation! Wada also gave his thoughts on the future of the Persona franchise, and the team’s intentions to get even more fans on board for upcoming games:

Q: I’m sure there are a lot of things that you can’t divulge yet, but how will the Persona series continue to grow in the future?

Wada: We are working on various ways to bring the Persona series to a wider audience. I can’t say any specifics at this time, but please look forward to it.

Q: Are there any game genres you want to experiment with while using the world and characters of Persona?

Wada: We’ve already done the genres that I wanted to, like fighting games and rhythm games. We also tried out the action genre with Persona 5 Strikers. The action genre is quite popular worldwide, we’d like to try making another game in that genre later on.
