Capcom debuted the Final Fight series all the way back in 1989. We haven’t seen too much in the way of new Final Fight games in quite some time, but Capcom is paying tribute to the franchise’s Metro City by including it in Street Fighter 6. While Street Fighter 6 isn’t coming to Switch, we can at least enjoy some free content thanks to the Street Fighter tie-in.

In honor of Metro City’s inclusion in Street Fighter 6, Capcom has made Final Fight free to download on Capcom Arcade Stadium. Remember, even if you don’t currently own Capcom Arcade Stadium, it’s also free to download. In other words, you can download Capcom Arcade Stadium for free right now and then grab Final Fight for free as well!

Capcom didn’t say how long Final Fight will be free for, so best to grab it now instead of missing out.

Back in 2018, the Pokémon Co. released a series of ‘Saiko Soda’ line that featured various Pokémon in a retro art-style. Finally, after a 4-year absence, Pokémon Co. is continuing the line.

Pokémon Co. and illustrator F*Kaori have revealed 5 more Saiko Soda Refresh plushies, and they’ll be available through both Pokémon Centers in Japan and Amazon Japan. The lineup includes Togepi, Bellossom, Mudkip, Plusle, and Minun, and will see release on Dec. 17th, 2022. Each plush will be priced at 1,760 yen.

As usual, there’s no word on a release outside of Japan at this time, but we’ll likely see these items available via Pokémon Center Online later next year.


Apple TV+'s Tetris movie gets an R rating

Rated R for the long Tetrimino

It appears the Tetris movie set to air on Apple TV+ is moving right along, as the film has received its rating. While you might think a Tetris movie would be a family-friendly affair, Apple clearly had a different idea in mind.

The Tetris movie has officially been given an R rating, which I don’t think anyone saw coming. According to the ratings details, the movie has been given an R due to harsh language.

In the Tetris movie, Taron Egerton (“Rocketman”) will star as Henk Rogers, the Dutch video game designer who secured the rights to the original Tetris, and then licensed it for Nintendo platforms. A dispute arose due to this licensing, and the film will no doubt explore this battle in considerable detail.

WARNING! The invasion has arrived, and it’s all tentacles on deck to protect Splatsville from a Salmonid infestation! Starting at 7 PM ET today, Dec. 9, and running through 7 PM ET on Sunday, Dec. 11, the special Big Run event for Splatoon 3 for Switch brings one of the biggest co-op events in Splatoon series history!

Splatoon 3 may be known for its fast-paced 4-v-4 Turf War battles, but in this new twist on the co-op Salmon Run mode, players will need to set aside their differences and team up in workforces of four to stop wave after wave of Salmonids from overrunning the city. And unlike regular Salmon Run matches, which take place on special stages, this inaugural Big Run event will see the Salmonid swarms overtaking a huge stage normally seen in competitive modes – the amusement park-themed Wahoo World!

Everyone who slaps on a Grizzco jumpsuit and participates in Big Run will receive a special in-game decoration for their locker. Plus, the number of Catalog Points and Bonus Rewards you can receive will also increase. But don’t even think of slacking off – Grizzco will be tallying your points throughout Big Run, and the very strongest performers will receive rewards that reflect their ranking! Once the event ends, the final Big Run results will be announced.

So, stay on alert – nowhere is safe from the Salmonid menace unless brave Inklings and Octolings work together for the greater Grizz … uh, we mean the greater good.

And don’t forget, Big Run isn’t the only fresh catch in Splatoon 3. The new “Chill Season 2022” just started, bringing with it additional weapons, stages and gear. A new seasonal catalog debuts every three months, so make sure the new catalog rewards don’t slip through your nets!

Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon was announced for Switch during The Game Awards, but Nintendo has since shared a few more details. Most importantly, we now know the game will be getting a physical release alongside the already-mentioned digital option.

Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon is a new take on the Bayonetta series starring Cereza, a young apprentice witch before she would come to be called Bayonetta. The game launches for Switch on March 17, 2023.

In Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon, players take on the role of Cereza, a young apprentice witch, and start a fateful journey into a forbidden forest to gain the power to save her mother. In addition to sporting a striking and distinct storybook-inspired art style of its own, this new title also features gameplay never before seen in the Bayonetta series. Controlling both Cereza and her infernal demon partner, Cheshire, players will focus on exploration, combat and puzzle solving to help Cereza go deeper into the forest.

Players who want a sneak peek of the game won’t have to wait long at all! In fact, a brief playable teaser for Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon can be accessed within the Bayonetta 3 game! Players who purchased the Old Picture Book at Rodin’s shop, The Gates of Hell, using in-game currency and unlocked it with three keys will be able to access the teaser.

You thought the Game Awards was done with the Super Mario Bros. movie after they shared their exclusive clip? Well think again, as another commercial aired that gives us yet another peek at the film.

The bulk of this commercial has been shared already, but outside of America. While we’ve covered those commercials, this is the first time we’re getting to see these moments in English.

Again, if you’re trying to avoid spoilers, I guess you should steer clear of this clip. There’s nothing major revealed, but it’s still more footage than what was shown in the two official trailers.


As was confirmed earlier today, a new clip for the Super Mario Bros. movie was shown at The Game Awards. Instead of giving us a new trailer, today we get to see an actual scene as it appears in the movie. If you don’t mind some light spoilers, you can check out the clip above.

The Super Mario Bros. movie is directed by Aaron Horvath and Michael Jelenic (collaborators on Teen Titans Go!, Teen Titans Go! To the Movies) from a screenplay by Matthew Fogel (The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part, Minions: The Rise of Gru), the film stars Chris Pratt as Mario, Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach, Charlie Day as Luigi, Jack Black as Bowser, Keegan-Michael Key as Toad, Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong, Fred Armisen as Cranky Kong, Kevin Michael Richardson as Kamek and Sebastian Maniscalco as Spike.

The image above shows everything included in the first wave of this Expansion Pass, with details on the remaining waves to be shared at a later date.


Nintendo and Platinum have announced Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon, a brand-new Bayonetta spin-off title that’s set to launch March 23rd, 2023. Turn back the pages of the Umbra Witch’s story to learn where it all began. Take control of Cereza and her first demon Cheshire to fend off faeries and solve puzzles.


Supergiant Games has revealed that they’re working on Hades II, and more details are coming in 2023. For now, you can see the debut trailer above.

No specific platforms outside of PC mentioned in the debut trailer, but with Hades being a Switch timed-exclusive, it seems quite likely the sequel will make its way to the platform as well.

The first-ever sequel from Supergiant Games builds on the best aspects of the original god-like rogue-like dungeon crawler in an all-new, action-packed, endlessly replayable experience rooted in the Underworld of Greek myth and its deep connections to the dawn of witchcraft.

Key Features

Battle Beyond the Underworld – As the immortal Princess of the Underworld, you’ll explore a bigger, deeper mythic world, vanquishing the forces of the Titan of Time with the full might of Olympus behind you, in a sweeping story that continually unfolds through your every setback and accomplishment.

Master Witchcraft and Dark Society – Infuse your legendary weapons of Night with ancient magick, so that none may stand in your way. Become stronger still with powerful Boons from more than a dozen Olympian gods, from Apollo to Zeus. There are nearly limitless ways to build your abilities.

Mingle with (More) Gods, Ghosts, and Monsters – Meet a cast of dozens of fully-voiced, larger-than-life characters, including plenty of new faces and some old friends. Grow closer to them through a variety of new interactions, and experience countless unique story events based on how your journey unfolds.

Every Run is its Own Adventure – New locations, challenges, upgrade systems, and surprises await as you delve into the ever-shifting Underworld again and again. Reveal the mysteries of the Arcana Altar, tame witchy familiars, and gather reagents using Tools of the Unseen to get closer to your goal.

The Perks of Immortality – Thanks to a variety of permanent upgrades and the return of God Mode, you don’t have to be a god yourself to experience what Hades II has to offer. But if you happen to be one, you can brave escalating challenges for greater rewards, and prove just how divine you really are.

Signature Supergiant Style – Rich, atmospheric presentation and storytelling fused with responsive action is the hallmark of Supergiant’s titles. Vivid new hand-painted environments, even smoother real-time 3D characters, and an electrifying original score make this mythic world burst with life.
