Nintendo held a short Mobile Direct for their new game called Dragalia Lost with their recently acquired studio, CyGames. Nintendo owns 5% of CyGames. You can watch the Direct here if you missed it.
I do not have much to say on this game. It looks okay. However, I will give this game a try as it is a brand new IP. Maybe if it is successful, they will bring a future title to Nintendo Switch.
Dragalia Lost launches for iOS and Android on September 27. You can pre-register now to be notified when the game releases. Unlike Pokémon Quest, there will be no console version.
Nintendo will be hosting another Nintendo Direct this month, tonight at 8:30 pm PT. They will be showing off the new Mobile game, Dragalia Lost. The game will launch on September 27 for Mobile.

The Nintendo Switch was the best selling console in July in the US reports the NPD Group. Nintendo had a great month. SQAURE ENIX’s OCTOPATH Traveler made number one on Nintendo Switch. (It was published by Nintendo in the Americas.) In total, there were five games published by Nintendo that made the Top 10.
Again, OCTOPATH Traveler was the best selling game last month in the US. The Next Nintendo game is Mario Kart 8: Deluxe. Now a third-party game, Crash Bandicoot: N-Sane Trilogy made the list from Activision Blizzard. Crash just released on Switch, Xbox One, and PC in June. It is also on PlayStation 4.
Another Nintendo Switch game that reached the Top 10 last month was The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The game is on Wii U, as well. Also, Super Mario Odyssey and Mario Tennis Aces made the same list.
Nintendo had a great month in July. Five Nintendo games (technically four) made the top ten. A third-party Switch game made the list, being Crash Bandicoot, too. Nintendo also made the list for selling the most consoles last month.

Shooting at the Madden NFL 19 Tournament Whilst Live On Twitch In Jacksonville
UPDATE: Three people were killed, not four.
ORIGINAL: On August 26 in Jacksonville, Florida, Electronic Arts held a video game competition for the game Madden NFL 19. It started out as any normal gaming competition. There were some good teams. Then, something horrible occurred.
It can be seen on the Twitch live-feed now on YouTube. Commentators were chatting away about all the great teams during the competition. In the background, yelling can heard. It is a little hard to make out what he yelled. Before long, shots were fired. The event was interrupted by this and everyone started getting scared. The suspect shot and killed three people, one being himself. At least twelve gun shots can be heard during the feed.
There might be another suspect, according to ComicBook. Police are tracking any other persons if there is. Prayers are going out to all of the victims and their families. Additionally, this is sad for the gaming community.
Nintendo announced via Twitter that there will be another Nindies Showcase on August 28. It will start at 9 am PST / 12 pm EST. They will talk about more indie games. This seems unnecessary as people want to know what is going on with Nintendo’s first-party lineup. You can watch it here: http://live.nintendo.com

I want to see another Snake Pass 2 but I don’t think we will see that. Sumo51 needs to show off more Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes, on the other hand.
