The new Switch model, whatever it will be called, has received another report that it could be out sometime this year, packing a 7-inch 720P OLED screen from Samsung which is said to output 4K ultra high definition when docked. That’s a massive resolution difference between the 2 modes, and 7 inches could basically mean a thinner bezel than what the Switch currently has. Bloomberg reports that this new Nintendo Switch model will have a bigger Samsung OLED screen that should “prop up demand in time for the holidays”. Samsung is reportedly set to mass produce these displays by June and is scheduled to be shipped out a target of nearly 1 million units to assemblers just a month after. Bloomberg also points out that Nintendo decided to proceed with rigid OLED panels, which is “a cheaper but less flexible alternative to the type commonly used for high-end smartphones,” and…

Users around the world have already been enjoying their PlayStation 5 but in some territories, the next-gen console is just starting to release. One such country is Vietnam, and in this case, as probably inspired by the now viral Plash Speed video (which even spawned a partnership with Sony), some madlad made sure his purchase was well hidden. A Facebook post by user Lê Gia Hưng (as spotted by Nmia Gaming) pulled off a real-life Plash Speed 5 stunt, posing his brand new PlayStation 5 as a brand new router since their network was a bit slow. The post is in Vietnamese, but a quick run through google translate shares the following story: The service provider’s story early this year.At the beginning of the year, my family discovered that the network was a bit fluttering. I called through the call center to take care of itViettel’s customer care, I was…

Acquisitions seem to be the in thing these days and we have another one to add to the growing list the Tonic Games Group, developers of the widely popular Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout, will be joining the Epic Games fold, as announced on the Epic Games website. Apart from the purchase, this won’t mean any drastic changes to how Fall Guys is played, in fact the game will remain purchasable on Steam and PSN, as the developers are preparing to bring it over to the Switch and Xbox as well. There’s also no announcements yet on whether the game will be going free to play or not. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2CT7eZ1ydPs “It’s no secret that Epic is invested in building the metaverse and Tonic Games shares this goal. As Epic works to build this virtual future, we need great creative talent who know how to build powerful games, content and experiences.” shares Tim Sweeney,…

It’s been quite a while since the last (good) Aliens game but Cold Iron Studios may just have the thing to scratch that itch as Aliens: Fireteam has just been announced and it will be making its way to the PS4 / PS5, Xbox One / Series, and PC later in the Summer. Dubbed as a third-person coop survival shooter, seemingly similar to back 4 blood, players will have to team up to “Survive the Hive”, and if the gameplay from this early trailer is anything to go by, then it’s looking to be pretty epic. https://youtu.be/B63_ljZ91Mc You can read the game description below courtesy of its Steam page: 2202. A mysterious distress call reroutes your Marine Assault Unit to LV-895 in the outer colonies, where deadly Xenomorph legions, hidden corporate secrets, and ancient alien ruins await your arrival.Set in the iconic Alien universe, Aliens: Fireteam is a cooperative third-person survival shooter that drops…

An official trailer has been released, which you can see below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dJJeGRCO1Zs It is also quite interesting to note that 4 new promotional materials were released with a hidden QR code broken up in each of the corners of the posters.

Forever Entertainment, known as the team that worked on the Panzer Dragoon remakes, has struck a deal with Square Enix to remake “several” titles from an IP owned by SE Japan. It is interesting to note here that the remakes will be under one brand or series, and not across several, so fans should temper their expectations. This comes from a report from Polish Website Biznes, which details that these remakes will feature new visuals but will retain the gameplay and scenarios from the original game. Forever Entertainment will be shouldering all development costs for this but revenue will be split 50/50 between FE and Square Enix. https://twitter.com/Nibellion/status/1366371726490279936 The IP has not yet been revealed, but will be announced when its global marketing campaign initiatives start rolling out. It’s not very likely that these remakes will feature a big IP, but speculation is always fun. What do you think will…

In news that seems to be a surprise to absolutely nobody, a physical E3 2021 event will not be taking place this year, according to reports that the live event has been cancelled by the Board of Los Angeles Convention and Tourism Development Commission. According to a post on the Resetera forums by Rosti, E3 2021 was tentatively scheduled for June 15 but due to the ongoing pandemic, a digital event has been eyed to take its place instead. You can see the shared image below, as it comes from a presentation that was supposed to be discussed during a board meeting this March: E3 2020 didn’t push through at all, with big names such as Sony and even Geoff Keighley announcing their non-participation even prior to cancellation. With E3 this year aiming to take on a virtual format, it would be interesting to see if they gain support from…

After recently just getting 9 minutes of gameplay for the upcoming remaster, NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139… drops another action-packed trailer, which gets us even more hyped for its release in a couple of months. The trailer is in Japanese, which is perfect, truth be told.

Final Fantasy fans must be feeling great after the weekend. Between getting the FF7 Remake for free on PS Plus and 2 new mobile games in Ever Crisis and The First Soldier, the PS5 upgrade of Final Fantasy VII Remake has also been revealed. Entitled “Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade”, the PS5 version will sport various graphical and performance updates, along with a new DLC that introduces our favorite Materia thief, Yuffie. PS4 gamers who are looking forward to playing the new DLC content will be out of luck, unfortunately, as Square Enix have confirmed that the Yuffie DLC will not be coming to the PS4 and will be a PS5 exclusive. According to an FAQ page from the FF7R Intergrade Website, the new Yuffie episode is “optimised for PlayStation 5, so it is not available on PlayStation 4.” This effectively means that you’ll need a PlayStation 5, which is…

If you aren’t taking notice to Deathloop just yet, then this new trailer may finally convince you to give it more than just a passing glance. Shown off during Sony’s State of Play presentation, a new Deathloop trailer was shown that, while there wasn’t really anything “new” that we don’t know of already, was an awesome and stylish trailer that we’ve come to expect from Arkane. If there was ever a trailer that sold you a game upon watching it, this could be the one. https://youtu.be/cGd–oZUBlA “Along with the different visual influences in each district, we wanted to ensure players would hear different things between the different regions of the island. The scores of each district are changed by the architecture and vibe of that particular location, as well as the Visionaries that call those areas home. Where Aleksis’ Updaam is all psyche-rock and vintage sci-fi tones, an area like…
