Battle Princess Madelyn Releases December 6th 2018 on Switch, Wii U version due in 2019

13th November 2018 - Causal Bit Games and Hound Picked Games are delighted to announce the release date for the much anticipated, long awaited, Battle Princess Madelyn, that has already achieved phenomenal coverage throughout its development cycle delivering star studded previews and articles. Battle Princess Madelyn is to be released on Playstation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC (Steam) on December 6th 2018, with the Wii U and Vita versions to follow later in the new year.

"It's been an exciting, exhaustive, stressful, enjoyable, frustrating, etc. period over the last two years developing Battle Princess Madelyn and I would do it all over again. The feedback that has been given in the creation of the game, the positive remarks, the way social media, the specialist gaming press, etc. have supported the game throughout this long period has been nothing short of remarkable. The end result is a game the team are all proud of and went beyond what was envisioned. Within a very short time gamers will be able to play Battle Princess Madelyn. I hope it will give them as much enjoyment as it has to the team that created it!.", Christopher Obritsch - Causal Bit Games.

Ubisoft vows to fix issue with Just Dance 2019 that inundates kids with messages to buy songs

Just Dance 2019 offers a Kids Mode that keeps songs safe, and makes menus easier to navigate. In the North American version of the game, Kids Mode also bombards kids with messages to buy songs that they don't have in their collection. This lead to one fed-up mother complaining about the issue on Reddit, and the complaint has made it all the way back to Ubisoft. The company pledges to fix the issue in the near future.

"We realized that the labeling of the content in-game and more especially the difference between what's included on the cartridge/disc and what's available in the Just Dance Unlimited streaming service in the Just Dance Kids mode could be confusing for our players. We never intended to create an uncomfortable situation for parents".

Just Dance 2019 users experiencing issues with Ubisoft account logins

Some people have gone so far as to create multiple new accounts just to test if the login works that way, and it does not. Ubisoft is yet to comment on this issue.
