Brie Larson has been playing Animal Crossing since the GameCube days, says she's down to be in an Animal Crossing movie

A true fan

Earlier today, we shared an Instagram post from Brie Larson that was an official ad for Animal Crossing: New Horizons. There's no doubt Larson was psyched to get the opportunity, as she's been a big Nintendo fan for a long time now. In an interview with People, Larson talks about how far back she goes with the Animal Crossing series, and what it means to her.

“I’ve been playing the game (New Horizons) I think since Monday by myself and I’ve had nobody to be able to talk to about it. It’s been really sweet to have this special time with it to figure it out on my own.

The original game, the first time I played it was on Nintendo’s GameCube and it was just so important to me and my sister. My mom set up a rule: whoever finished their homework got to play first. It was an amazing tool to get us to finish our homework.
...I’m so excited to make new memories with my sister [Milaine Desaulniers] again. We’re adults now and yet we still just have such a deep love for this game and it’s been really fun to talk with her about it. Given the circumstances, we can connect via the Internet and go to each other’s islands while we’re FaceTiming and communicate about this. It’s just sweet.”

When Larson isn't playing Animal Crossing, she's busy appearing in all sorts of movies and TV shows. Would Larson ever be up for a big screen adaptation of Animal Crossing if one were to get greenlit?

“Of course. I support Animal Crossing all the way, through and through. I think it’s good for our hearts.”

Smash World Tour 2020 changes schedule due to coronavirus concerns

The Smash World Tour 2020 is going to have some events completely halted due to coronavirus concerns. Activity in March and April 2020 has been scrapped for the most part. You can check out full details on the changes in the message below.

Switch dock modded to include GameCube controller ports

A perfect union

There are a number of different ways to use your GameCube controllers on Switch, but you'll have to cough up cash to enjoy them. From a first party offering to numerous third party options, you can choose whatever option best suits you. ...or you could just mod the Switch dock and cram some GameCube controller ports in there!

Redditor i_AM_hank just wasn't happy with the options that were out there, and he wanted something that would let him plug in GameCube controllers whenever he wanted. That's why he undertook a modding project that crammed a Mayflash GameCube controller adapter into a Switch dock.

As you can tell, extensive work went into the project, but the final results is pretty near perfection. If you want a complete rundown of all the effort that went into this mod, you can check out the full breakdown here.

Kamiya says he can't do it alone, needs fans to rally together to make Capcom greenlight Viewtiful Joe 3

Let's henshin a go-go!

Kamiya has said countless times in recent weeks that he wants to work on Viewtiful Joe 3. He has also said that it can't happen without Capcom's blessing. In an interview with NWR, Kamiya once again said what needs to happen in order to bring that sequel to fruition. It looks like Kamiya is really turning to the fans to help make his dream a reality.

(These comments come from Kamiya, but were interpreted by a translator) He said maybe if enough people actually reach out to them and propose it, it might happen. He alone cannot do it. So, if you guys rally people up and get them together he would love to do it.

Seems like it's time for someone to get the ball rolling on a campaign. A catchy hashtag, a movement on social media, and email campaign, and so on. Anyone care to take up the mantle?!

Sakurai asked about a sequel to Kirby's Air Ride, and responds with a commentary on sequels in general

Yeah...but will it happen?!

Masahiro Sakurai is no stranger to sequels. He's created multiple Kirby games, numerous Smash Bros. installments, and brought back the Kid Icarus series. One of the projects that Sakurai worked on was a spin-off title for Kirby called Kirby's Air Ride. Fans have been clamoring for a sequel for years now, but it never came to be. In this week's Famitsu, the question of a sequel comes up again.

Could a sequel to Kirby's Air Ride ever happen? Rather than address the idea directly, Sakurai instead offers up his thoughts on how sequels come about. Whether this means anything or not for a potential Kirby's Air Ride 2 remains to be seen.

“Many great games have sequels, and knowing when to release sequels takes some know-how regarding games’ maturities. It’s difficult to deliver on the images that people have in mind for sequels.”

VGBC announces Smash World Tour 2020, featuring a $250k prize pool

Time to start practicing!

Countless Smash Bros. fans would love to see Nintendo really get behind the idea of Smash Bros. eSports, but the Big N just doesn't seem all that interested. They're going to run a few events here and there, but they're more for the fun of playing, rather than showing off skills and winning big prize pots. That void from Nintendo is now being filled by the VGBC gang, who have announced the Smash World Tour 2020. Check out full details on the event below.

We are incredibly excited to announce the first-ever Smash World Tour, an international tournament series for Ultimate AND Melee!

In its first year, it will have stops all over the globe, both big and small, leading up to the Smash World Tour Championships with a combined starting prize pool of $250,000! The Smash community has so many amazing events throughout the year around the world, our goal is to help unify them and take it to the next level.

Who will be crowned World Champion?


Between Platinum, Gold, and Silver tournaments, players can earn points from community events all of the world. At the end of the year, the competitors with the most points will be flown out for the SWT Championships (December 17-20th), with over a combined $250,000 on the line!

Players can earn points from both the largest Smash events in the world and their local weeklies – our goal is that the Smash World Tour encourages growth at every event level!

New footage of Blizzard's cancelled Starcraft: Ghost project surfaces

A cancelled GameCube title

Starcraft Ghost was originally announced in 2002, and was slated to come to the GameCube. The project was put on hold in 2006, and then officially cancelled all the way in 2014. Now here we are in 2020, and new footage of the never-released game has been shared online.

No one seems to know where the footage came from, but it appears to be legit. Since the project has been long dead, hopefully Blizzard will step forward and explain where this could have come from.
