January often sees a slow pace for video game sales because of the long gap between the holiday shopping prior and many upcoming major releases each year. It leads to major game companies offering various sales to players, except Nintendo.

However, this year they have decided to make an exception perhaps by offering a New Year's sale for digital Nintendo Switch games. Check out retailer outlet like Amazon or Nintendo eShop to get your hands on some of that pie they are serving.

When Square Enix initially released plans for bringing more content to Final Fantasy XV, fans were convinced that the game will never end considering the title was originally announced back in 2006 before it saw release in 2016, exactly ten years later.

Unfortunately, that certainly is not the case at hand until further development because according to one of their earnings report, this executive decision of cancelling the DLCs resulted in a tremendous amount of loss of around $33 million.
