Sonic Mania Plus Is Now In Stores

Sonic Mania Plus is in stores today. You can get the physical version to Sonic Mania for $29.99 USD. It comes with an art book, a reversible cover, extra in-game content, and more. If you don’t want to buy the game again, you can download Sonic Mania Plus as DLC if you already own Sonic Mania for $9.99 USD. If you own the base game and still want to buy the physical edition, your save data will carry over to this version.

Sonic Mania Plus is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. The DLC is also available on PC via Steam. To learn more about the game, you can visit SEGA.

In addition to Sonic Mania Plus’ release, SEGA released the final episode of Sonic Mania Adventure. This makes it five episodes total and the entire mini series can be viewed on YouTube. The team that animated the series actually designed the game, too. You can watch Sonic Mania Adventure: Episode 5 here.

Yakuza Unlikely To Come To Nintendo Switch, But Series May Come To Xbox One

tralier logo.JPGYakuza has been primarily a PlayStation exclusive since the beginning with Yakuza on PlayStation 2 in 2005. This was the case until 2013 when Yakuza 1 and 2 HD released in 2013 on Wii U in Japan. In addition to the Wii U release, you will be able to play Yakuza for the first time on the PC in August. You can now pre-order Yakuza 0 for August 2 and Yakuza Kiwami will release later this year on Steam.

Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio is considering releasing their games on many platforms. But Yakuza has been mostly a third-party PlayStation exclusive. Daisuke Sato, the game series’ director expressed his opinions. It might come to Xbox One, but unlikely Switch, he says. He believes Switch users are “used to different games.”

However, games like DOOM and Wolfenstein II doing well on Switch could be argued that ‘Yakuza failing on Wii U’ is a bad reason for not bringing it to Switch. There are almost no third-party games that sold well on Wii U. Several games like The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, LA Noire, Sonic Mania, and South Park: The Fractured But Whole have performed well. Some of them may not have sold gang busters and some other games may have failed, et. WWE 2K; Overall though, there are enough people playing them to want to play more games in the future.

I am fine with it being a PlayStation only game. I do own a PS4 afterall and was both excited and annoyed to hear it coming to PC. That is a big reason I bought one, anyway. None-the-less, I gave in and pre-ordered Yakuza 0 as I do not own that game on PS4 but similar to what NintendoPrime stated, comparing Yakuza on Wii U to how future sales would fare if Yakuza came to Switch will perform is silly.

Nintendo Attending TOKYO GAME SHOW 2018

Nintendo Attending TOKYO GAME SHOW 2018

Nintendo will be attending the TOKYO GAME SHOW this year, TGS for short. It has been over a decade since Nintendo showed off the Wii at TGS in 2005. However, it seems that this will be mainly for business-only and by appointment. So, it seems they will not be doing anything like Sony does, as in a big showcase. This is all according to KOTAKU and BCN.

Should Nintendo hold a press conference?

Nintendo could try a press conference once for a change. It would not harm the company a whole lot. If it does not go well, than next year they can just have a Nintendo Direct for the fall. In addition to a Direct, game booths available for the press and public to experience is a great idea. TGS may not be as big as E3, but for Japan, it may be a huge event.

More Information

TGS is like the Japanese version of E3. The event will be held on September 22nd through the 23rd this fall. They will also be open for businesses from September 20th to the 21st. (This is likely more for the press and investors. Ex. Press Conferences) You can learn more here.

Minecraft Now Supports Cross-play Between Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Windows 10 devices, iOS, & Android

Minecraft is available on so many platforms now, including PC’s, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii U, Nintendo 3DS, Switch, iOS, and Android just to name a handful. It even features Cross-play support.

By supporting cross-play, thats means if someone owns a Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, iOS or Android device, or Windows 10, that person will be able to play with a friend on a competitor’s platform. One big exception to this is Sony with their PlayStation 4.

The PlayStation 4 is this generation’s best selling console and Sony has had numerous hackings with their PlayStation Network service. These are likely the reasons why Sony has opted out of cross-play. However, this is not consumer-friendly and angers many gamers around the world. Regardless of gaming politics, this is not the right move for Sony and it needs to be changed.

Nintendo even uploaded the cross-play trailer for Minecraft on their YouTube channel. You can watch it above. They even show the Xbox One logo and a Xbox One Controller throughout the video. They made a big deal out of it in the description too, saying that you can play the Switch version with gamers on Windows 10 and Xbox One. Another option is Mobile. But the point of this video seemed to be more of trolling Sony none-the-less. Check it out above.
