Here is some good news. There had been concern over how well Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 would do on Switch due to it being a late port, but it seems to not be the case.

The game came out on Switch in Japan this week on Thursday, and based on Bandai Namco’s reports, it’s off to a strong start. Specifically.  Bandai Namco published a tweet saying that Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is a big hit on Switch. They then sent out another message earlier today stating that there is a shortage for the physical version, with more shipments planned towards the end of this month.

It is possible that Bandai Namco had planned a conservative shipment for Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2. That being said, the high sell rate most certainly impressed them.

The game launches in the west on September 22.

Today at Gamescom, WB games and NetherRealm studios revealed the second DLC pack for Injustice 2. This pack of three characters has 2 that were expected and one that was a very welcome surprise. I must say, even though he was a rumor, I do not think anyone expected this guest character.  NRS is really going all out to make this game as epic as possible. Take a look below.

 

Are you excited for this? We sure are!

A new character has joined the Arms League.

 

Lola Pop, a well-traveled clown with a personality as colorful as her clothing, will soon join the ARMS roster in the next free update!

Lola is certainly an interesting new character for the game, and really does add to the cartoonish nature and whimsicalness of Arms. But what do you all think of the new addition? Are you excited to play as Lola?

Let us know!

Few fighting games have made as much of an impact as Super Smash Bros. The party/platformer/fighting game obviously had the big draw of being a Nintendo crossover, but the combat has gained attention as well, due to its unique nature.

As with any big product, fans have their own ideas for how to do things, and in one such case, a spiritual sequel came to be in the form of Brawlout. Brawlout takes what works from the Smash Bros series, and gives its own unique spin on it. It is a well designed fighting game and while it doesn’t have the unique characters of Nintendo, the characters of Brawlout have their own charm to them. The developers could have gone the easy route and made the characters generic but instead they actually do feel like characters.

The combat mechanics are mostly similar to Smash Bros Melee but the game does take some hints from Brawl and other fighters. This is not a bad thing at all, and the game feels less like a clone, than a tribute. I was concerned I would find the fighting bland, like with many tribute games, but instead I really got into it and had a blast. The game ran smoothly and the fighting was quick and without fault. Playing against others was fun and made me appreciate all the work the developers did.

Brawlout is amazing more when you realize it is still being built on, as it is an early access game. It doesn’t feel incomplete, but rather it feels like the developers just happen to have more they want to do with it and that is fine. I am eager to see what comes next in the game.  Some have said this surpasses Smash as a fighter, but that isn’t a necessary comparison. It compliments Smash by making you realize how well done both games are. That is a rare feat and Angry Mob games did well with this. I recommend checking this out.

Angry Mob Games sent out the following

 

Smash & bash indie platform fighter, Brawlout, is coming to Nintendo Switch™ this holiday season. Get ready to call out your friends in the next big fighter to hit the portable console!

Following a successful launch on Steam Early Access in April 2017, platform fighting game, Brawlout from Angry Mob Games, is headed to the Nintendo Switch™ in time for the holiday season. Brawlout packs a punch with couch and online play modes, blending platform fighter mechanics and traditional fighting game play into a stylish and fluid battle royale. To celebrate the announcement, Angry Mob is offering 50% off the Steam version to satisfy itchy controller fingers ahead of the Nintendo Switch™ release.

 

If that wasn’t enough, Angry Mob is also excited to announce a new playable character to their already stellar line-up: Hyper Light Drifter, from the hard-hitting indie gem of the same name. Developed by Heart Machine studio, the titular hero is set to unsheathe his light sword against the competitors of Brawlout today.

 

“We love indie games; one of the first, and most iconic, characters that came to mind was Hyper Light Drifter,” says Bogdan Iliesiu, CEO of Angry Mob Games. “He fit into the Brawlout universe perfectly, as he is already built for the type of battle we see in the game. We collaborated closely with Heart Machine to make sure The Drifter remained true to the original, working in his iconic light sword and making his signature dash a character specific move. The Drifter brings a more technical style of combat to Brawlout, with tons of movement options and both defensive and offensive play, that we think he’s going to become a staple for those looking for a competitive edge.”

 

Whether players are looking for a casual couch experience with friends, or to challenge pros in worldwide online tournaments, Brawlout caters to anyone looking to create a little chaos. For those wanting to take part in the mayhem from a safe distance, Brawlout TV is available for spectators to watch ongoing matches.

 

FEATURES

 

  • Choose from six original characters, each with unique combat styles, or try your hand at Hyper Light Drifter from the indie hit of the same name + more surprise fighters in the works
  • Host up to 4 players in online and local battles, with several modes including timed, stock or team matches
  • Fuel your Rage Meter to power up for hard-hitting Special Attacks and unleash your Rage Mode
  • Action is kept fast and fluid with advanced techniques like air dodging, wavedashes, directional influence on stun, ledge grabs or Rage Bursts.
  • Brawlout does away with shields and blocking, focusing heavily on the aggressive, fast-paced combat which has made platform fighters so fun to both play and watch.

 

Download Brawlout on Steam Now, with a 50% discount, for $9.99 USD; Nintendo Switch™, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions coming soon.

 

Brawlout is rated E10+ (Everyone 10+) by the ESRB and PEGI 3+.

Brawlout is a fantastic platform fighting game, and to have it come to Switch is excellent. This will no doubt appeal to many Nintendo fans due to the nature of the game. We will have a review of the Steam version up on the site later this week.

Capcom reported its latest financial results earlier today, and revealed something interesting. Their first Switch game, Ultra Street Fighter II,  has been a “smash hit” and “made an excellent start”. The game shipped 450,000 copies in Q1, which was above what Capcom anticipated.

Capcom wants to capitalize off that success and is now putting in more resources towards Switch. They have stated they are “starting to prepare” multiple Switch-version titles, but nothing further was stated as to what those titles were.
