Now that we’ve got our Bayonetta 1 to 3 Digest out of the way, let’s talk, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild!
As some had suspected, whilst also at The Game Awards 2017, the release date for the Champions’ Ballad DLC was in fact revealed and it is out now already now that the show is over. You will need to update your game to version 1.4.0 in order to play it, but given the new dungeon it adds, added story and a motorcycle Link can ride around on in Hyrule, you are definitely going to want to play and buy the DLC if you never brought the Expansion Pass before. Below we will be sharing a trailer for the DLC, footage of some of it in action, part of the press release that concerns it and an official overview: Continue reading A Complete Zelda: Champion’s Ballad DLC is Out Now Digest (Overview & Footage)

Last month the talented folks over at WayForward revealed almost every detail there is to know about Shantae: Half-Genie Hero’s upcoming Friends to the End DLC. What they didn’t share though, was a trailer, until now:
No release dates were revealed, but going by what WayForward said before, it should be out during the Holiday period as it has already been submitted for approval and that the DLC is free to backers, with non-backers having to purchase it, should they wish to add it to their copy of Shantae: Half-Genie Hero. As for who voices who, Cherami Leigh is the voice of Rottytops (voices Gaige in the DLC for Borderlands 2.) Nathan Sharp who voiced Marcel in Attack on Titan voices Bolo and Karen Strassman (voice behind Fire Emblem’s Anna) for the voice of Sky.

As nice as it would be to have the online services for every game to remain intact and keep on going for as long as possible, it’s just not feasible, so today Ubisoft are ending the online services for a whole range of games on various platforms, including the Wii U and Wii.
For a detailed explanation as to how each game is affected and which games are affected, we have that information right here: Continue reading Online Services for Certain Ubisoft Titles on Wii U and Wii are Ending Today

Oh, Xenoblade Chronicles 2, what are you doing to us today?
If Zelda fans didn’t get enough news regarding new content for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, today (new side-quest with new costume available as a prize being distributed on November 9th) it’s time for some less official news. According to an updated listing of Breath of the Wild in the European Switch eShop, the Champions’ Ballad DLC Pack that adds a new dungeon, original story and new challenges, is due out in December.
By no means is this official confirmation, as for now it is circumstantial, but like Nintendo has said time and time again, the second DLC pack will be out this year and with just November and December left, next month is as good a time as any to bring it out. But until Nintendo officially come out and give us a date, which they will do soon enough, for now nothing is set in stone.

Yacht Club Games, have released a special reveal trailer featuring the Game Grumps to unveil 3 new amiibo, Plague Knight, Spectre Knight & King Knight. These three amiibo will available in a multipack and will no doubt have special functions to the each corresponding Character and their Game. Whether they will have functionality in each others story modes is not yet known but it is cool of Yacht Club Games to create amiibo versions of their characters. Maybe we could expect to see even more Shovel Knight characters get their own amiibo, like the whole Order Of No Quarter. That would be awesome! Anyhow, here is the reveal trailer for the amiibo.
