Doom on Switch Adds Motion Controls

If first-person shooter game Doom from id Software has taught us anything that would be blasting off demons is never a boring chore. People who want to have this simple enjoyment on-the-go have sought to the Nintendo Switch version of the game when this demon-slaying fest debuted on the platform. With a newly released update, Doom has added "Motion Controls" for Switch console.

Doom on Switch Adds Motion Controls

Ever since the game is ported to Switch, people have been asking about "Motion Aiming" using the built-in gyroscope of the Joy-Con to let them aim more accurately. The traditional aiming with the analog stick of the controller is still there but mixing the two options at hand, you can play the game with more precise control. Courtesy of 1.1.1 patch, you can find the "Motion Aiming" option under the setting menu for Controller.

Aiming at your enemies with the game stick can be a bit painful and tough when there are massive oncoming hordes on your way to overwhelm you. So, without any mention of the most-requested feature, Bethesda just added it to the menu so that you can aim better with a simple tilt of the console. Perhaps, they had it planned all along and saw the release of this new patch a nice way to let people have some more fun. Players who gave it a shot claim that, this new update definitely increases game's performance for them.

A new Game Icon will now appear below the main menu of Nintendo Switch, just like the one you saw on the game's boxart. Besides, apart from Motion Controls and Party Support, the patch offers a few minor fixes to improve the experience, which includes some audio issues too.

Joy is described as a “Japanese computer whiz" in the promos, who is the newest addition to the gang and she is a hacker, which makes her a unique asset to the team in a heist. Just because she is a hacker doesn't mean that she will be busy with the computers to help her infamous teammates of the gang.

Below is the brand-new official trailer for OK K.O.! Let's Play Heroes, showcasing brief details of the gameplay and the plot of the adventure K.O. gets into.




K.O. is an aspiring superhero to be and he takes inspiration from his icons he mostly hangs around with. Lord Boxman is a madman who despises K.O. and takes away all the levels from the heroes' pow cards. The trailer shows that. K.O. and his friends will be wandering around inside Lakewood Plaza strip mall as he learns to be a superhero. Scratched from some old concept ideas and character designs, they finally managed to complete the show as they wanted to.


OK K.O.! Let's Play Heroes nicely retains its comical tone just like the animated show and Capybara Games did a fine job at that. Though the original series had a 2D styled animation, the gameplay adaptation may seem like a 2.5D experience because of the side-scrolling nature of it. Plus, the game promises to have much more fun in stock and cut-scenes in between K.O.'s adventure quest.


OK K.O.! Let's Play Heroes is set to launch on January 23, 2018 for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms. So, prepare yourself for one of the finest game made from cartoon show that will let you brawl and collect cards with your favorite fictional characters from the show.

Mercenaries Saga Chronicles Comes to Nintendo Switch

CIRCLE Ent. is a Japan-based game publisher who brings new games to market and in 2017, they have introduced 30 new games to various platforms. They mostly work with small-time indie titles and they operate under the name Fly High Works in Asia. Some their great release includes SteamWorld Dig 2, The Day We Found Earth and The Legend of the Dark Witch 3. A few days ago, they teased the announcement of a new Nintendo Switch title on Twitter.

mercenaries saga chronicles nintendo switch
Mercenaries Saga Chronicles Comes to Nintendo Switch

As soon as the clock hit midnight and it was already 2018 in Japan, CIRCLE Ent. have twitted that they are bringing strategy role-playing series Mercenaries Saga for Nintendo Switch.



Tactical RPG Mercenaries Saga by Japanese developer studio Rideon was primarily out as mobile game which used to rock on Nintendo 3DS console later and there were three installments of the game released so far. Many have considered the Mercenaries Saga series as a worthy descendant of Final Fantasy Tactics. The first game of the series was never released in the Western regions and then came Mercenaries Saga 2, which came out in 2015 on Nintendo 3DS, then eventually on Android and iOS.

The third and final title Mercenaries Saga 3 was released on 2016 exclusively for Nintendo 3DS. So, as CIRCLE Ent. is bringing Mercenaries Saga Chronicles, we are getting all three games together much like an anthology. You can also consider the tiles as remaster edition because originally the Mercenaries Saga game series used to run on 240p resolution which is going to be enhanced to a 1080p resolution for Nintendo Switch. So, that definitely bridges the graphical gap between the new take on the game and the predecessor versions.

However, at the moment we cannot say anything about how much the game will cost or there are no official release date announced by CIRCLE Ent. yet. Plus, this time the series is going to see a Western release after all, which will be a great move by the developer and the publishers.

Regalia: Royal Edition Release Date Announced

A Kickstarter funded project by developer Pixelated Milk, Regalia is a JRPG video game which mainly took inspiration from the Final Fantasy days of the creators or the modern day classic Persona series. Even though the game is from a European studio, it is loosely based on JRPG theme while they also mixed up the storytelling adventure in it at the same time. Regalia in its core is a tactical RPG that has a great plot to follow you up on your journey.

regalia of men and monarchs
Regalia: Royal Edition Release Date Announced

The game is about a young man named Kay who is out to restore his kingdom of Ascalia, interacting with other in-game characters who will come across as he advances in his quest. As he journeys to get back his throne again, Kay will lead us to some of the most cherished JRPG moments in recent times. The combats you will get into will be well rewarding if you are tactical enough because that is the main objective of the game.




At times, you can tone down the difficulty level a bit or heck, you can even skip battles if you do not wait to see what plot point is laid ahead of you. However, avoiding fights will not simply make the trouble go away because there is always something up in Ascalia and you've got to deal with them at some point. Just as you are already troubled with a lot that is happening around your kingdom, you also have to face the drama of your teammates’ as well.

Many may think that JRPG has to do something with being Japanese but the developers at Pixelated Milk believe that it is more to do with a certain gameplaying style. They pointed out that a game made in the West will certainly have unique design differences than the one made in the East but that is not essentially a bad thing. Games like Baldur’s Gate or Final Fantasy series has taken a very different approach to the genre despite being considered as consider role-playing games.

Theo’s Blood Aversion

Indie studios often face a few common problems like shortage of crews on board and thus, it becomes very difficult for them to get the project up and running on time. The entire process of "just make a game together" turns out to be whole lot of painful than anyone ever thinks of initially. No matter how determined you are to get out of cliche stories and sometimes bothersome trends, you always have limitations slowing you down.

The game was never meant to be a hero's journey or how he bravely saves the world, it was planned as a single plot that could produce many spin-off stories if needed. Upon its entry on the other consoles in the market, Regalia surely will make a name for it and a unique identity of its own.

Regalia is a Japan-themed tactical RPG was released back in May 2017 for PC and according to the announcement of Pixelated Milk, the game is about to make its debut on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita and Xbox One as Regalia: Royal Edition in 2018. There will be no Early Access on Steam for the game and nor it will allow any in-game micro-transactions either. The Royal Edition contains a 30 hours long adventure to experience and many vivid characters to interact with.

Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2 are one of the finest action games that PlatinumGames have ever created.

Bayonetta 3 Revealed for Nintendo Switch

Fans of PlatinumGames' action-adventure hack and slash video game series Bayonetta can rejoice now because they're finally getting a much awaited sequel of the game. Recently at The Game Awards, Nintendo has just announced that Bayonetta 3 will be out for Nintendo Switch but right now, it is on development stage. The series protagonist and titular character Bayonetta will be back kicking ass with her trusty dual-wielding hand guns once again.

Check out this short video clip by Nintendo officially announcing Bayonetta 3 and experience the awesomeness of the game.




The trailer starts with the sky slowly turning into red and then the frame shifts to the twin-pistols of the series protagonist Bayonetta, who is constantly getting hit by a light purple apparition. The being seemed to be too fast for her and when it throws her off after hitting her several times, she instantly fires six rounds of bullets that seemingly hit a glass-like wall. As they both come face to face for another confrontation, Bayonetta suddenly disappears from the fight and her guns drop on the floor.

The trailer clip was relatively short and contains too little information to determine what to make of it, except we're getting a third installment of the game and most probably a new villain and new crisis is headed our way. However, the heroine looks fabulous as she is destined to be and given the previous history of the franchise, it is easily predictable that it will do great upon release.

Mega Man 11 Announced

On the 30-year anniversary of arcade's most favorite Blue Bomber protagonist Mega Man, Capcom decided to drop the bomb which the fans of the series might not have seen coming but is happy that it dropped. Yup, you guessed it right. The publisher of the game made an official announcement that the legendary hero will return sometime in 2018 with Mega Man 11. Producer Kazuhiro Tsuchiya will be on board with director Koji Oda for this brand-new game of the series.

Mega Man 11 Announced

While there are not much details for Mega Man 11 at hand except that the game will be available to play on Nintendo Switch,  PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. We have a trailer at hand to show you a brief peek at what's coming in the upcoming title though. Check it out.




One thing is certain that, Mega Man 11 will still remain a 2D side-scrolling action adventure title. In fact, you can even consider it as 2.5D. From its original 8-bit days, Mega Man has managed to become a legend while also inspiring countless other fan-favorite series in the process. With every other games going through a revolutionary change, Mega Man 11 will surely be no different and is about to create new milestones.

What we were able to gather was that while the game will resemble to the predecessors of the series in looks, it will be modernized and a noticeable change in art style will be there. Our hero, Mega Man's appearance might even slightly change and he will have a new weapon as well. In this way, the game is re-invented and fans from both older and newer generation can enjoy it at the same time.

Newest Side-Scrolling Adventure

The year 2018 will not only see the release of the latest installment of the Mega Man series but it will also be celebrated for Mega Man’s 30th anniversary. To increase that excitement a little more, all eight games from the Mega Man X series are coming to PlayStation 4 on the same year. So, you can also go back to your old days with those games while you wait for Mega Man 11 to release. Sounds like a plan!

When a series has 30 years of enriched history of being adorned by fans and players worldwide, we only hope from Capcom to bring their very best with Mega Man 11 and nothing less. Since the title is still on the development stage, we have to hold our excitement for the moment and wait for the revealing of the release date for 2018.

Batman: The Telltale Series on Nintendo Switch Out Now

The episodic structure and narrative-driven adventure is considered as the winning point for the Season One of Batman: The Telltale Series when it came out. The series saw its release back in 2016 and it simultaneously conquered Android, iOS, PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

Batman: The Telltale Series on Nintendo Switch Out Now

Announcing the release of the game for Nintendo Switch, Telltale Games already released a trailer earlier with the glimpse of awesomeness that won over fans before the game even came out in the first place.




Batman: The Telltale Series Season One happens to be the first mature-rated title from Telltale on Nintendo Switch. With more intense games for adult audiences like Skyrim and Wolfenstein 2 are awaiting their release on Switch system, Batman: Season One was a good start for sure. However, there is one thing that you should know before you get a copy of the game and that is, visual quality of the title is slightly less detailed on Switch than it is on other platforms.

Fans of Batman: The Telltale Series are already pretty busy with the Season Two of the series; The Enemy Within on consoles, mobile devices and PC. So, it's time that Nintendo Switch owners should get busy with saving Gotham as The Dark Knight as they have access to one of Telltale's best game ever. You have to trust us on this one. We are simply not over-hyping this one.

You can get a physical copy of Batman: The Telltale Series game on Nintendo Switch for only $39.99 and can also choose digital download. All good things considered of the game, Switch's portability will be a plus point for those who chose to experience the game on the system as they can go in and out in the world of Batman anytime they want now! That's probably the best part of having the game on Switch.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus Launch Trailer

The return of the Wolfenstein franchise with the latest title Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus has kept fans and everyone else on their eager tippy toes since it had made its presence known at E3 2017. It's been a hot topic of discussion for gamers all around the world since then. Specially, hardcore action game lovers are speculating the game to become one of the best action titles of this year, when it will finally comes out.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus Launch Trailer

Bethesda Softworks has recently dropped the launch trailer for The New Colossus and filled with some awesome action sequences, it is right below for you to check out right now.




Set in the alternate take of the history, the trailer opens with a host welcoming the audience to America's number one game show "German . . . or Else!". Then it cuts back to a distress message where leader of the American Resistance, Grace Walker invites her fellow Americans to join the rebellion against the Nazi forces who took over the U.S. by killing their countrymen as series protagonist William "B.J." Blazkowicz keeps slaughtering the Nazi enemies in a berserk mode.

It is probably not necessary at this point to retell you that in The New Colossus, Nazis have won World War II and America is under their rule. Yet, our hero Blazkowicz tirelessly takes down the members of the Ku Klux Klan as a member of the Resistance. Scenes of both Nazis killing American citizens like animals and the hero killing the enemies with guns and grenades will probably blow your mind, because it gives you a fair idea of how much raw violence you are about to get into in Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus.

The trailer then ends on an interesting note when the audience in the room leaves their chair and stood chanting "Hail Hitler" with the entrance of an elderly Adolf Hitler wearing a robe and coughing. His face remained unseen though.

We are already too close to the date when Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus will hit PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 27, 2017. The Nintendo Switch version will probably come out sometime in 2018.
