By: Jak Connor | More News: Gaming | Posted: 13 mins ago

Tarsier Studios, the developers behind the indie horror adventure success Little Nightmares have announced that their title has reached a massive milestone of 1 million units sold.

 

 

For those that don't know, Little Nightmares is a game where players take control of a little girl called Six. Six has awoken in what is called The Maw, a underwater resort scattered with different monsters that she has to escape from. Now jumping over to where the sales came from, the numbers include both digital and physical copy releases across all platforms, the platforms are the following: PS4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch.

 

Andreas Johnsson, CEO at Tarsier Studios has spoken out about this achievement, here is what he said "We're very proud that our first original game sold so well, it's well beyond what we ever expected. "Little Nightmares is after all part of an indie game landscape and the fact that one million players have played our game is wonderful. This achievement is a milestone for both Tarsier Studios and Little Nightmares. To have created an original game that becomes as successful is proof that the new direction for the studio was the right choice, and that feels great. Little Nightmares is available on the Xbox One, PS4, PC and the Nintendo Switch. If you missed out on the Little Nightmares Nintendo Switch trailer, check that out here.

Blizzard say Overwatch port to Switch is completely feasible

By: Jak Connor | More News: Gaming | Posted: 1 hour, 19 mins ago

After the recent news confirming Diablo 3 being ported over to the Nintendo Switch, Blizzards Senior Producer, Pete Stilwell was asked if it was possible that Overwatch could see the same treatment. Hold onto your hat because Overwatch coming to the Nintendo Switch is completely possible.

Blizzard and Nintendo just confirmed that Diablo 3 would be making its way to the handheld console this fall, and while that is amazing news GameSpot has sat down with Senior Producer at Blizzard Entertainment, Pete Stilwell. Stilwell was asked a series of questions regarding the now confirmed port of Diablo 3, the producer said that now that the developers have worked very closely with the Nintendo Switchs' technology, the developers have now achieved a much better grasp on how everything works, thus opening up more possible avenues for collaboration.

 

With the developers now new found knowledge of how the system works, GameSpot directly asked Stilwell if he could see Overwatch being ported over to the Switch. Stilwell replied with: "Anything is within the realm of possibility. Our team was given the task to work on this. If [Overwatch developer] Team 4 picks up that endeavor, that's on them. As of right now Diablo is our only focus on Switch." Stilwell was further asked if the Switch had the technological capabilities to run Overwatch, the Senior Producer replied with "Yes, it is feasible." Sure, this isn't really much to go off to say that Overwatch is 100% coming to the Switch, but it does confirm that it is entirely possible. Could we see Blizzard make an Overwatch port sometime soon? Perhaps, my personal guess would that the developers will wait until Diablo 3 is successfully brought over before tackling another massive project.

New Super Mario Bros. U/New Super Luigi U rumored for Switch

By: Jak Connor | More News: Gaming | Posted: 3 hours, 6 mins ago

Rumors have surfaced about a coming New Super Mario Bros. U and New Super Luigi U coming to the Nintendo Switch. According to the rumors the title will be released sometime in 2018.

According to Comic Book, sources that are close to Nintendo Europe have told the website that Nintendo are planning on releasing port of 'New Super Mario Bros. U' for the Nintendo Switch. The rumor reveals that this port of New Super Mario Bros. U will also contain the paid DLC New Super Luigi U. Comic Book claims that these rumors have been provided by the same person who gave them accurate information regarding Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle, but no definitive proof has been provided.

 

Comic Book also says that the title of the finished game could be 'New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe', "It's unclear whether or not this could be an internal placeholder, but the recurring nature of this title among multiple Nintendo sources suggests it could be more final." This would make sense and it would certainly complement the Gameboy Color Super Mario Bros. Deluxe title. Do take these rumors with a grain of salt because at the moment this is all hear-say , if anymore information surfaces regarding the potential port we will be sure to update you.

We've known for a while now that Diablo III would arrive on the Switch, but key details remained unknown. According to new info passed along to Eurogamer, the Diablo III Switch port will actually be filled with a number of options and modes.

 

The ARPG's Switch version will run at a smooth 60FPS across both handheld and docked modes, Blizzard confirms, and comes with extra Nintendo-inspired goodies like a Ganondorf skin, a cucco pet, a set of vanity wings, and a Triforce portrait for customization. The game is also bundled with the Reaper of Souls expansion alongside the new Rise of the Necromancer pack, which adds Diablo II's necromancer as a playable class.

Halo Infinite is Halo 6, a direct sequel to Halo 5

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: 10 hours, 23 mins ago

343i's big new Halo game may not be numbered, but that doesn't mean it's anything other than a sequel.

When Halo Infinite was announced I'll admit I was anxious. 343 Industries is investing a ton into the next mainline game, going so far as to create a brand new games engine (the Slipspace Engine) just for the project, and is making promises to take the series in new directions. But one thing I pretty much knew from the start is that Halo Infinite is indeed Halo 6 and will continue where Halo 5 left off--for better or worse.

 

Now 343i confirms that yes, Halo Infinite is Halo 6, and no, it won't be any sort of prequel that, say, chronicles the story of Blue Team or dabbles in the Covenant's formation (much to my dismay). "It is Halo 6. You should just consider it Halo 6. Don't think of it as a weird prequel kind of thing. It's the next story. It's the next chapter in what is going on," said 343 Industries lead writer Jeff Easterling in a Mixer stream.

New Battlefield V gameplay shows destructive WW2 chaos

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: 11 hours, 1 min ago

Battlefield V's new Gamescom 2018 gameplay footage highlights the game's dynamic mayhem and teases its battle royale mode.

 

 

Predictions of weak pre-orders notwithstanding, Battlefield V is looking damn good insofar as fluidity, gameplay, and overall technical prowess. Every bit of footage we've seen so far shows DICE's strengths across the board: destructible environments, new player mechanics, impressive effects, and a myriad of in-engine improvements.

 

The latest gameplay footage is short but sweet and full of seamless chaos. It gives players a look at a few new theaters of war where they'll battle for WW2 dominance, as well as a glimpse at the upcoming Grand Operations and battle royale modes.

PlayStation VR sales break 3 million

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: 11 hours, 42 mins ago

Sony's PlayStation VR headset has broken 3 million sales worldwide, the company today announced.

 

playstation-vr-sales-break-3-million_664

 

While console-powered headsets are better suited for VR gaming than dedicated PC-driven HMDs like the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, the market is dominated by cheaper mobile VR headsets. Sony has still managed to steal quite a bit of VR hardware sales from its competitors and remains a dominant player in the space--case in point: the PSVR has sold 3 million headsets globally. The headset has done well insofar as unit sales since it was released in October 2016. Sony's PSVR topped 1 million sales as of June 2017, and as Twitter's Dom's Playing notes, hit 2 million units nearly a year after its release.

 

At the same time, however, the headset's attach rate remains rather low. Sony has shipped over 82 million PS4 consoles as of Q2'18, which means about 3.7% of all PS4 owners actually have a PSVR too.
