Pre-Orders For Fist Of The North Star Are Now Available
Pre-Orders are now available on the PlayStation Store. All pre-orders come with the “Destiny Talisman Pack”, which includes 6 talismans that will provide Kenshiro with various abilities. You will also receive a theme and avatar set for PS4, to show your love for the series. However the talismans are no good if you don’t know how to fight. A combat trailer is available below.
Switchblade Heading To Early Access
Lucid Games have announced that their MOBA inspired arena game Switchblade is heading to Early Access. The game pits teams of 5 against one another in an arena battle. Players switch between their 2 chosen vehicles on the fly, making the game fast-paced and giving the player the chance to be both offensive and defensive. It’s a game I played at EGX last September and one I highly, highly recommend. Switchblade will enter Early Access on August 28th.
PUBG Mobile Has Past 100 Million Downloads
You read that right. Over 100 million downloads, in 4 months (excluding Japan, China and Korea)! It’s no surprise really. The game was the most downloaded game in over 100 countries in it’s first week of release, and it doesn’t seem like it’s slowing down any time soon.
Diablo III IS Coming To Nintendo Switch
The rumours were true; Diablo III is coming to Nintendo Switch. The Eternal Collection contains everything from the original Diablo III, the Reaper of Souls expansion and the Rise of the Necromancer pack. Featuring 7 character classes, a 5 act campaign and an Adventure Mode, the Diablo III Eternal Collection is suitable for newcomers and seasoned players of the series.
