Fortnite Reportedly Adding a Feature Players Have Been Asking for Since Launch

If a new rumor is to be believed, Fortnite will finally be adding a feature that fans have long been asking for! According to noted Fortnite leaker @HYPEX, Epic Games will be adding a "Keep Playing Together" button that will allow teams to stay together in Squad, Duos, and Trios. It's worth noting that this is only a rumor at this time, so Fortnite fans will want to take this with a grain of salt until Epic Games gives some kind of official confirmation. That said, @HYPEX has a pretty solid track record, so this feature could finally be on the way!

New Monster Hunter Rise Update Released, Patch Notes Revealed

Monster Hunter Rise has released a new update, Ver.3.1.0, that fixes a number of bugs -- like, a whole bunch of them -- as well as introducing some game adjustments and generally preparing the Capcom title for upcoming quests. Taken on its own, it's not exactly the beefiest patch ever considering that no significant content of any kind was added immediately, but as a taste of things to come, well, that's exciting in its own way. It is worth noting that the new update will require 0.65GB if players are downloading it along, but if it's the first update players make after purchasing the game, the total will be closer to 3.6GB.

Nintendo Switch vs. Lite: Which of Nintendo’s handheld gaming consoles should you buy?

With the discontinuation of the PlayStation Vita in 2019 and its own 3DS in 2020, Nintendo’s Switch line of consoles became the only truly portable console on the market. While mobile games are currently thriving on smartphones and tablets, iOS and Android can only capture a fraction of the experience offered by Nintendo’s Switch. Classic, well-known game series like Super Mario Bros. and Mario Kart have mobile versions, but the options, pay structure, and smoothness of gameplay leave a lot to be desired for many gamers. Players looking for games with deep, Day-One content and dozens of hours of gameplay don’t consider the mobile vs. Switch debate, but rather the Nintendo Switch vs. Lite debate.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 is surprisingly solid on the Switch

We’re more than four years into the life of the Nintendo Switch, and yet in some ways the handheld device remains an enigma. Namely: when there’s a port of a big game, you never quite know what to expect. Sometimes you get a welcome surprise like Doom Eternal, other times a mess like Apex Legends. Which why I was only cautiously excited about Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 — an excellent-yet-awkwardly named remaster of the first two games in the series — making its way to the Switch. This is a game where movement and flow is paramount; if frame rate hitches get in the way of a good run, it’s not really worth playing.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 HD is almost a great Nintendo Switch game

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater was always a wonderful fit on handheld gaming devices. That was true even before portables were powerful enough to replicate the 3D gameplay of the original Tony Hawk with GBA ports and then full re-creations on Nintendo DS. So I was excited about the idea of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 HD on the Switch. And the HD remakes look and feel great on Nintendo’s handheld. This is a great way to get in some skateboarding action on the go — with one serious flaw.

Square Enix says that the Switch version of the SaGa Frontier remaster has “produced the most sales”

Earlier this year, on April 15th, a remaster of Square Enix‘s SaGa Frontier released on mobile devices, PC, Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch. The game had originally released on the Playstation 1 in Japan in 1997, followed by a North American launch in 1998. Square Enix’s remaster of the game is obviously more available on platforms than the original, and according to the company, sales are doing well.

Neo: The World Ends With You is getting a PS4 and Switch demo tomorrow

Ahead of the game’s release in July, Neo: The World Ends With You will be getting a demo so you can try out the anticipated follow-up to the cult DS game yourself. Last night, the Square Enix Twitter account posted a new trailer for the game that showed off some new elements and gameplay – but there was one little morsel it seems they didn’t intend to share: the confirmation that a demo is coming to the game.

Human: Fall Flat Wobbles Its Way on to PS5

Hilarious physics platformer Human: Fall Flat is one of those games that is almost as much fun to watch someone else play as it is to play it yourself. After Human: Fall Flat passed 25 million sales, we’re not surprised that it has made its way onto PS5. We are, however, pretty thrilled about the idea of this game getting Haptic Feedback. Soon, players will be able to experience the feeling of climbing, swinging, and moving heavy objects in a whole new dimension: touch. The PS5 DualSense controller will register subtle tension in its adaptive triggers as players navigate levels and interact with objects. While it’s very difficult for trailers to convey a sense of touch, this PS5 trailer does a great job of conveying the joy players will get from playing Human: Fall Flat on PS5.
