Apex Legends Coming to Mobile With Regional Beta Test First

5 hours 37 minutes ago

Respawn Entertainment announced on Monday that it will be bringing its competitive battle royale title Apex Legends to mobile devices.

Simply titled Apex Legends Mobile, the game will be specifically designed for touchscreens and contain “streamlined controls and thoughtful optimizations” to work with smartphones, the studio said in a blog post. The mobile game will be free-to-play, like the PC and console versions, but will not have cross-play with the other platforms since the game is being built to work just for mobile devices.

The game will also have its own battle passes, collectible cosmetics, and unlockables that will be separate from the PC and console versions. Respawn had created an internal team dedicated to developing the mobile version, though will collaborate with the main team and other partners.

Apex Legends Mobile will first be available as a small closed beta test for “a few thousand players” with Android devices in India and the Philippines later this month. The studio said it will steadily increase the size of the tests, add more regions, and support iOS as the tests continue. Respawn will open the game to more regions with a pre-register page when it is ready.

Legoshi & Haru Get Ghibli in This Adorable Beastars Fan Art

6 hours 35 minutes ago

Ever since Beastars arrived to Netflix last year, fans have fallen in love with lead characters Legoshi and Haru, as the odd couple of this timid wolf and the confident bunny certainly paint an interesting picture. One fan has taken it upon themselves to combine that love for these two characters with another of their favorite anime styles, creating a version of them that is “Ghibli-ish.”

In the art above, you can see Legoshi and Haru transformed using the Studio Ghibli art style at the hands of user Twitter user F0XnR0LL, somehow managing to look even more adorable than they usually do. The picture itself fits the characters perfectly as well, showing Haru as carefree as ever picking flowers while Legoshi holds her up, embarrassed at the prospect of his crush sitting on his shoulders.

If you’d like to check out more of this artist’s work, head over to their Twitter account that features a boatload more of their talented art. While you’re here, you should also check out all of the other Beastars and anime content we have to offer.

Sony Reverses Course: PS Store on PS3 & PS Vita Will Remain Operational for “Foreseeable Future”

10 hours 21 minutes ago

In a surprising reversal, Sony has changed their mind about retiring the PlayStation Store on PlayStation 3 and PS Vita. Originally scheduled to be phased out on those platforms on July 2 later this year, Sony has announced today that the PS Store on PS3 and PS Vita will continue on and players will be able to continue buying and downloading games from the storefront on those consoles.

Citing player response to the move and self-reflection, Sony admitted to making the wrong move and searched for a way to continue operations.

The statement from Sony Interactive Entertainment president and CEO Jim Ryan isn’t overly long, so here it is in full below:

Recently, we notified players that PlayStation Store for PS3 and PS Vita devices was planned to end this summer. 

Upon further reflection, however, it’s clear that we made the wrong decision here. So today I’m happy to say that we will be keeping the PlayStation Store operational for PS3 and PS Vita devices. PSP commerce functionality will retire on July 2, 2021 as planned. 

When we initially came to the decision to end purchasing support for PS3 and PS Vita, it was born out of a number of factors, including commerce support challenges for older devices and the ability for us to focus more of our resources on newer devices where a majority of our gamers are playing on. We see now that many of you are incredibly passionate about being able to continue purchasing classic games on PS3 and PS Vita for the foreseeable future, so I’m glad we were able to find a solution to continue operations.

I’m glad that we can keep this piece of our history alive for gamers to enjoy, while we continue to create cutting-edge new game worlds for PS4, PS5, and the next generation of VR.

Thank you for sharing your feedback with us – we’re always listening and appreciate the support from our PlayStation community.

Double Fine Says Psychonauts 2 Still Coming This Year

11 hours 39 minutes ago

Psychonauts 2 studio Double Fine took to Twitter today on the 16th anniversary of the original’s release to remind everyone that the sequel is still coming in 2021.

“And yes, Psychonauts 2 is this year and yes I’ve been mentioning that here and elsewhere for a while but no I can’t tell you when because someone from THE COMPANY would arrange for a mysterious “cactus accident” to happen to me… But it is real. It is playable. It is coming,” Double Fine wrote on Twitter.

No specific date for 2021 has been announced for the mind-bending platformer. The original Psychonauts celebrates its 16th anniversary today with a discount on Steam after launching on PC, PlayStation 2, and Xbox in 2005.

Psychonauts 2 has had a long development history and was initially announced at The Game Awards 2015 alongside a Fig crowdfunding campaign with a $3.3 million goal. The campaign exceeded its goal with an estimated delivery date of fall 2018.

Apex Legends References Titanfall in Valkyrie’s Northstar Outlands Video

Come On Nintendo, It’s Time To Bring the Mother Series to the Switch

12 hours 18 minutes ago

There’s a saying that goes, “The best time to plant a tree was 10 years ago; the second-best time is now.” Likewise, the best time to bring an Earthbound/Mother trilogy to a Nintendo console was 15 years ago; the second-best time is now.

Yes, yes, I know what you’re thinking. The cry to localize Mother 3 is so overdone. Nintendo wants nothing to do with the Earthbound franchise anymore. Even Reggie Fils-Aime is sick of hearing about it. And as of this week, it’s been 15 years since this conversation began. What more could possibly be said?

Well, hear me out for a minute.

For the uninitiated, the franchise Mother (known as Earthbound outside of Japan) is a quirky RPG with a cult following in which you play as kids who save the world. It breaks a lot of conventions in the best ways possible, has a memorable cast of characters and catchy music, and every line of dialogue is extraordinarily well-crafted.

Mother 3 is, as the name suggests the third game in the series; it released in 2006 for the Game Boy Advance, but, despite being a bestseller, never released in the west. Once it became apparent that the game wasn’t leaving Japan, some dedicated fans came together to create an unofficial translation so English speakers could enjoy it.

Xbox has announced that Xbox Cloud gaming will finally be launching in beta for iOS devices from today, while web-based Game Pass functionality will also come to Windows 10 for the first time. Select Xbox Game Pass members from 22 different countries will be sent invites to take part from today.

The beta phase will offer over 10 Xbox Game Pass titles through xbox.com/play, allowing users to play games through Edge, Google Chrome, or Safari. The intention is to make the service even more accessible to a wider range of players.

An article over on Xbox’s official website explains that the team at Project xCloud hopes the beta will help it hone the experience for a full launch as they evaluate feedback.

Our plan is to iterate quickly and open up to all Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members in the coming months so more people have the opportunity to play Xbox in all-new ways….

…In the early stages of the beta, we’ll be focusing on fine-tuning features and creating a consistent experience across platforms, while making sure games are running their best.

Those sent an invite need only a compatible Bluetooth or USB-connected controller to get involved; that, or they can use the service’s custom touch controls, which have been adapted for 50 different games. Game Pass has, of course, been available on Android devices for quite some time.

NieR Devs Yoko Taro & Yosuke Saito Announce That They Have a New Game in The Works

14 hours 27 minutes ago

Today during a livestream from Japan, NieR producer Yosuke Saito and creator Yoko Taro had a special announcement to make.

They revealed that they have a new project in the works on which Saito-san will as usual work as producer, while Yoko Taro will take on the role of creative director

Not much else was revealed that the game will feel “a bit indie” and it will be download only (but it might get a special package).

The two developers also announced that the game will feel somewhat nostalgic but also new, and it’s difficult to explain. Considering the involvement of Yoko Taro, I doubt this will surprise anyone.

More details and other members of the staff will be announced at a later time.

Earlier during the livestream, we heard that  Square Enix is looking to hire developers for its Business Division 4 for NieR-related work. The company is seeking a scenario designer, art director, and assistant producer. More details about these jobs will be announced tomorrow (April 20). That being said, this may be unrelated to this new game, which appears to be worded as a new IP.

In the meanwhile, if you’re interested in their work, NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139… just received a ton of reveals including gameplay, extra content, and the return of dad Nier in costume form.

Genshin Impact PS5 Version Set to Launch This Month, miHoYo Announces

3 days 10 hours ago

Earlier today Twinfinite reported the release of a trailer introducing new content set to feature in Genshin Impact’s upcoming Update 1.5, Beneath the Light of Jadeite. Since then, a detailed article over on the PS Blog has revealed new details, but importantly for owners of Sony’s PS5 console, it also confirmed that the launch of Update 1.5 will coincide with the PS5 update.

Zhenzhong Yi, studio technical director at miHoYo, explains:

“We are extremely excited to announce that a native version of Genshin Impact for PlayStation 5 will be released on April 28. With native support for PlayStation 5 comes 4K resolution, enhanced textures, and faster loading times.”

Of course, the update itself was announced earlier this month, but the release date had been kept under wraps until now.

Although Genshin Impact on PS5 already runs substantially better than its PS5 counterpart, the upgraded resolution, textures, and zippy loading times are going to be a huge boon.

As for what there is to look forward to in terms of new content coming in Update 1.5, you can head over to our breakdown based on today’s Genshin Impact livestream.

Genshin Impact is now available for PS4, PC, iOS, and Android. A PS5 version is coming this spring and a Switch version also planned down the line. We still don’t have a specific release date for Nintendo’s console.
