Resident Evil 7 Cloud Version Comes to Nintendo Switch

Resident Evil 7 "Cloud Version" is coming to Nintendo Switch on May 24 with a free demo but only for Japan now!

Despite everyone's doubt and disbelief on Resident Evil 7: Biohazard can ever be ported to Nintendo Switch, it is finally coming to Nintendo's next-gen portable gaming platform, although it needs an odd cloud installation method. Aside from the game being only available in digital version, it will only be available for playing in Japan for now, which is a major downer for the fans from rest of the world. The most recent title from Capcom’s survival horror series is coming

Below is a trailer for upcoming Switch version of the game we found on official YouTube channel of Biohazard, known for Resident Evil in Japan, where it is labeled as a “cloud version” of the game RE7. All you have to do is to install a 45 MB file on your Switch hard drive and since you will be playing the game from Nintendo's cloud storage, you will need a steady internet connection to enjoy it.

Capcom fans owning a latest Nintendo console can now finally experience the disturbingly shocking horror that the title proved to be. You are allowed to play a 15-minute free trial of the cloud version from May 24 and then you have to spend ¥2,000, which is equivalent of $17.96 only to continue playing for the next 180 days. Currently, the game supporting only Japanese language is listed on Nintendo eShop as Resident Evil 7 Cloud Version and can be found in Japan.

Resident Evil 7 explores the story of a system engineer named Ethan Winters, who has been looking for his missing wife Mia for past three years. When he suddenly receives a disturbing video message from her where she asks him to come look for her in a deserted plantation home of Dulvey, Louisiana, Ethan goes looking for her there only to be confronted by the psychotic members of the Baker family. What freaky terror he discovers there was far beyond his or anyone's imagination.

Resident Evil 7 Cloud Version for Switch also offers downloadable contents Banned Footage Volume 1, 2, End of Zoe and Not a Hero as well. Originally released back in January 2017, RE7 is available to play on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation VR and Xbox One. The one we are talking about doesn't look like to have a translation of English language in it, which means, this version is not meant for Switch players from North America. So, we have to wait until they announce that version or just include option for English language.

No Man's Sky Getting Multiplayer

No Man’s Sky’s big multiplayer update is finally launches in July to to race, build and dogfight with friends.

One of the main features co-founder of developer studio Hello Games, Sean Murray had announced about their action-adventure survival game No Man’s Sky was multiplayer during pre-launch of the game. However, that was missing upon release and became one of the major causes for a huge backlash from fans. They sure have to keep themselves from making that sort of marketing missteps and in effort to improve the game; they are bringing true multiplayer experience.

You probably know by now that, Hello Games will be bringing the next big update for their 2016's release this summer and it will be released for Xbox One as well. Titled “NEXT”, this update will drop on July 24 with a full-fledged multiplayer mode that may finally bring an end to an era after awaiting two years in hope and feeling betrayed. Looks like the studio is finally up for earning some redemption by delivering what they promised for this space exploration adventure.



Initially failing to provide a lot that they actually had in stores, the game forced UK’s Advertising Standards Authority to investigate on Hello Games and its small team of approximately twelve employees. It was really surprising that even after allying up with a publisher like Sony, they would even try to do that. However, they are occasionally releasing a series of free updates to provide those features that weren't there during release and make amends for all those misleading promises.

Although partial features of multiplayer was already implemented through their third major update “The Atlas Rises”, which was released on the game's one year anniversary, the new announcement by Murray suggests that everything is going to change and more players will be taking part when the real deal comes to play. So, the excitement and fun of base building, surviving and racing together is no longer a far-fetched dream in No Man’s Sky then? Only time will tell.

We have an interview of Sean Murray coming to Inside Xbox web series to announce Multiplayer and the anticipated release date for “NEXT” update.




No Man’s Sky is already available to play on PC and PlayStation 4 and now finally coming to Xbox One along with an enhanced version for Xbox One X. Finally all 18 quintillion planets of the game are coming together very soon and some of the players are still quite skeptical but can you really blame them? We only hope that upcoming fourth major expansion really delivers what they promised and players finally get what they have been waiting for.

Battlefield V Live Reveal Next Week

Putting all rumors and speculations to rest, official reveal for Battlefield V is heading this way and we have to wait only a few more days. When they mentioned for an untitled game from Battlefield franchise in last year's financial report, everyone has been waiting for it, while wondering what the title would be. Electronic Arts finally announced that in a live reveal event on May 23 at 1 PM PT, they will reveal the next game of their popular multiplayer shooter series.

After initially let the cat out of the bag, EA has kept their mouth sealed up until now. Instead of confirming or denying anything, they just decided to sit back and watch the rumors fly. A theory of the game being set on World War II era and will be called Battlefield V came up. Then there was another that the new release will belong to their Bad Company series. Some even start calling it Battlefield 2018 before the official announcement came. Looking at their post on official Twitter account, we decided to run with the first theory.

Also to let you know, this live reveal event will be hosted by Trevor Noah of The Daily Show, who posted about it on his personal Twitter account lately, which was also a rumor earlier. With that, he just cleared out all confusion and claimed it was "V EXCITING" for him. That is another clear hint at the game's current title. Given his day to day experience of hosting a popular show on a regular basis and having a fondness for video games, makes him a perfect choice for the job.

Trevor Noah appearing on May 23 live event will surely increase the excitement for all the fans of this series from Electronic Arts. We also like to remind you that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, the latest title from their rival series is going to be revealed tomorrow, which is earlier than Battlefield V. It will be interesting to see what predictions made by the players came out to be true and how much comparison people will do between these titles. You will be able to enjoy the reveal on Mixer, Twitch and YouTube when it is going to stream live.

Kojima Teasing Another Death Stranding Trailer?

Twitter is a great source of news these days and who better knows this than fans of video games and movies? Whether it's about an announcement of an upcoming project or some leak reveal, you will always find it there. Major developers and publishers also like to tease the fans on this platform too. Video game legend Hideo Kojima is no different as well and looks like he is hinting at another massive reveal for his PlayStation 4-exclusive action game Death Stranding.

Since E3 is near, we can take his hints seriously this time because the founder of independent game developing studio Kojima Productions has been teasing his fans on Twitter with a series of photos showing how he is busy with editing some game footage. Kojima is mostly known to many as the creator of Metal Gear Solid, which he created during his time in Konami. Then at Sony's E3 2016 conference, he announced Death Stranding which has no official release date set yet.




Many have speculated that Death Stranding would be one of Kojima's best works ever because he is now free from any corporate restrains and a self-governing entity. What we saw up to this point from mysterious black ooze, babies inside human throat, a cryptic version of Psycho Mantis and giant floating creatures only tells us that we haven't seen them all. It is best to assume that Kojima san has still a lot of strange imagery under his sleeve to catch us off-guard and throw us off-balance.

Sony has announced lately that they will be focusing on their upcoming video game titles at E3 2018 and being one of the most anticipated upcoming titles, Death Stranding would surely be there. So, whatever we saw Kojima is doing wearing that Planet of the Apes t-shirt while sitting beside a Godzilla statue in his Twitter photos, we probably won't be disappointed. Even the baby from the game we saw earlier is showing thumbs up to anyone who's watching, although nothing else is shown.

We are also riddled with the question that if we are going to see some more celebrity appearances in the next event for the game. Up until now, we know that film director Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, The Shape of Water), actors Mads Mikkelsen (Doctor Strange, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) and Norman Reedus (The Boondock Saints, The Walking Dead) are already tied with this project, which made everyone curious. Hopefully, E3 2018 will introduce another renowned celeb linked with to increase the hype. It could be Emily O'Brien and Troy Baker, who recently joined the game's ever-growing cast.

Final Fantasy VII Remake Comes Before 2023

Among its entire role-playing series of games, Final Fantasy VII is undoubtedly one of the most fan-favorite titles. A high-definition remake of the game for PlayStation 4 was in talks for a while from E3 2015 but then everyone went silent on it. We do have an important update on that but just not the one that will probably make you happy. Square Enix has recently confirmed a date of release, which is before the 35th anniversary of Final Fantasy series and that date is year 2023.

During Final Fantasy 30th anniversary exhibition in Japan, Tetsuya Nomura, Yoshinori Kitase and Naoki Hamaguchi, three significant people related to Final Fantasy series were present in a panel there. The audio translated from their conversation reveals about 2023 but it also isn't a final set date. At least, people now know that before when they cannot get it anyhow. We also learned that Biggs and Wedge will have a different redesigned look that you saw them in early trailers.

Years before the official announcement of the remake in 2015, many gamers have been expecting an enhanced edition for some time. After releasing on 1997, it has sold over million copies worldwide and still has a solid fan base dedicated to the franchise. When it came out, it had a great impact on players as they achieved a tectonic shift in game making and its whole franchise by replacing two-dimensional sprites with 3D polygons and it was such a revolutionary step back then.

Now waiting for Final Fantasy 35th anniversary may seem quite a stretch but we know that Square Enix do not hurry with any of their titles, especially when it is as iconic as the one we are talking about. They do know how eagerly fans are waiting for the game to get their hands on; so they are only taking time to make sure that everything is in right order. We believe, fans can wait at least this long. Originally released on PlayStation console, Final Fantasy VII has later debuted on Android, iOS and PC.

Mortal Kombat 11 May Be Announced at E3 2018

Before working on fighting game series like Injustice: Gods Among Us and WWE Immortals, NetherRealm Studios came to be known as the house of the legendary Mortal Kombat series. From the '90s era this franchise has been known to all for dreadful violence and a tense gameplay. It has changed and then evolved over time but still remains popular after two decades. Recently, a Tweet from game's director Ed Boon may have teased for Mortal Kombat 11, which probably is on its way.

Series creator Ed Boon has found immense success though the first Injustice game and its sequel, Injustice 2 but yet wants people to remember how important it is. Boon occasionally jokes around with his fans over social media every now and then, which also supplies a lot of potential clues for upcoming games and additional contents. Most of the tie his Tweets are not just trolling and besides, since there is a hint of a tease, he probably isn't kidding and might really drop something.

Lately, when a random Twitter user was pointing out that it would really be cool if their studio introduces a fourth DLC pack of fighting characters for their critically acclaimed game Injustice 2. Though he didn't shut him down on the possibility of that ever happening but decided to counter asking him "You know what ELSE would be kool....?" If you know that his history of fondness for using the letter "K" instead of "C", then you will notice that it surely is a tease for Mortal Kombat!

Also, it all makes sense because from 2013, NetherRealm Studios has been releasing Mortal Kombat titles and Injustice series one after another. Since DC Universe fighting game Injustice 2 came out almost a year ago, an E3 2018 reveal won't really be that surprising at all. Maybe will all these recent leaks from Walmart for upcoming games are what inspired Boon to be a bit playful about their upcoming project. The good news is, we will not have to wait much longer to find out the truth as E3 is almost upon us.

The last game from the franchise was 2015's Mortal Kombat X, which was released on Android, iOS, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. So, it is safe to assume that the alleged new installment will also be compatible with these platforms as well. For years, the studio has been developing all these incredible fighting games, which keeps us well entertained and always wanting some more. Let's just wait and see what Ed Boon and his teams are working so hard on these days!

Metro Exodus Delayed to 2019

Originally scheduled for a fall 2018 release date, Metro Exodus is now confirmed for Q1 2019 release date.

Up until now, use thought Metro Exodus of the Metro series of first-person shooter games and a sequel to Metro: Last Light from developer 4A Games and publisher Deep Silver was about to release on 2018 as per official announcement but that just changed now! The parent company for the publisher, THQ Nordic has stated on their Blog that previously scheduled fall 2018 release date for the game is pushed back to the first quarter of 2019. They still are deciding a release window for Biomutant and Darksiders III.

Metro Exodus Delayed to 2019

After making a spectacular entry in E3 2017, we hoped to get on board with the game this year and journey through its barren landscape to fight scary mutants this year but fate seems to be not with us on this one. According to their recent statement, the development process is still progressing and they are pretty happy with the finished result. Just because they want us to experience their finest effort when we get to play it, they are taking time to make sure that happens.

So, even though it is for the best but waiting another year for a game is quite tiring after you already spent one in anticipation. However, fans of Metro series must realize that 4A Games had to do this to live up to everyone's expectation and promises to not disappoint you when the game is finally released. All they are doing on the next eight to nine months is to fully focus on polishing the game players truly deserve. This constant process is getting all the attention it needs and so we need to wait.

Just to jog your memory on this story-driven survival horror themed shooter, here goes the announce gameplay trailer dropped at E3 2017.




Metro Exodus will be available to play on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One once it is released worldwide. Series protagonist Artyom will return for a bigger open-world experience in a post-apocalyptic Moscow and a few fellow survivors will tag along. Just because they hit us with a bummer, 4A Games promised to reveal a new footage containing brand new gameplay set on a different location of in-game environment we have not seen yet! That's some consolation there.
