Assassin's Creed III Remastered - Switch footage

Assassin’s Creed III is on Nintendo Switch for the first time and, based on players’ feedback, gameplay mechanics have been improved, with several features being revamped.

Some fans are convinced they see Rayman hiding in Smash Bros. Ultimate's Battlefield stage

A legitimate tease, or crazy talk?

This is one of those stories that transports me back to the early days of the internet. The days when people scoured images of games and claimed that insane secrets were hiding in plain site. Those discussions lead to very passionate people who believed the rumors to be fact, and others who thought those fans were crazy.

The video above takes a look at Smash Bros. Ultimate's Battlefield stage, where some people claim they can see Rayman frozen in a block of ice. As you might suspect, some think Rayman is 100% there, and others think it's nothing more than a visual trick. Which team are you on?

Starlink: Battle for Atlas' Crimson Moon DLC now available in Japan

A massive wave of new content to enjoy


As part of the free update, players can explore the Crimson Moon, theater of the Outlaw Games. Players are able to compete in all-new single-player and two-player split-screen racing tracks, fight waves of ruthless enemies in the Crimson Coliseum and see their rank and stats on leaderboards. The Crimson Moon also impacts the entire world of Atlas and lets players engage with new faction story missions and weekly challenges. Additionally, players are able to expand their roster and play through the new Crimson Moon content with five new pilots, three new starships, and four new weapon packs, available separately for digital-only purchase or all together in the Digital Collection Pack.

Alongside the Crimson Moon update, prepare to take control of the Star Fox team members Peppy, Falco and Slippy in brand-new content available exclusively to Nintendo Switch. Hunt down the Star Wolf team in a series of missions with the help of three additional Star Fox team pilots, each with their own unique special ability and skill tree. The new Star Fox content is available separately for digital-only purchase on Nintendo Switch starting today.

Child of Light Creative Director says sequel is unlikely due to Ubisoft focusing on games as a service

Industry trends ruin one sequel's chances

Remember back when Child of Light 2 was teased in no uncertain terms by the game's Creative Director? Well it seems that teasing was a bit premature. In an interview with VGC, Child of Light Creative Director Patrick Plourde now says that a sequel doesn't seem too likely.

“Right now, I don’t think there’s a Child of Light 2 being produced…I’m not holding my breath…I don’t think it’s the type of game that Ubisoft wants to make…In terms of portfolio, it’s still supported – we ported it on Switch and we’re still selling a bunch of copies, but it’s just that right now it’s all about games as a service. We can make money out of it, but you can make more money elsewhere. That’s the problem of not being independent while making this.”

That's a real shame to hear, but not a surprising one. Big-name publishers are focusing on games that keep money rolling in long after launch through various DLC and events. Child of Light simply isn't that kind of series, and adding that kind of content to a sequel would pretty much ruin the experience.
