Capcom hasn't shown the Blue Bomber much love in recent years, but that's set to change soon. Capcom is hoping to revive the popularity of the once-prominent franchise in time for its 30th anniversary, and that includes debuting an all-new Mega Man cartoon from the creators of Ben 10. Man of Action Entertainment unveiled Mega Man's new design last year, and thanks to a recently-discovered sizzle reel, we've now been given a brief first glimpse at how he'll look in action.

Nintendo is trying their best to break the modern conventions of The Legend of Zelda series with their newest installment, Breath of the Wild. We've seen a ton of new things in this game so far that we haven't seen previously in the series, but producer Eiji Aonuma teased one tidbit that may surprise some: the possibility of multiple endings. Aonuma said, "There is an alternate ending if you meet certain criteria. If you do a few things, you may see a different ending." While it's unclear how the possible endings will be unlocked for now, it is an interesting addition to a Zelda title. We'll have to wait until the game releases to find out just what this alternate ending could be, so all we can do for now is speculate.

What do you guys think of this? What sort of criteria do you think is required for a second ending? Do you think there will be more than just two? Let us know your thoughts in the comments after the jump!

During Nintendo's Switch presentation, the gaming giant announced that over 80 games are in development for their new system. To help show the amount of games coming over the next year, Nintendo released a graphic that lists the release date of highly-anticipated titles. However, they failed to list a lot of the games that many fans are excited for. That's why one dedicated fan added a lot more to the image, showing every single game that's been announced so far. You can take a look at both graphics after the jump!

While the Nintendo Switch already has a number of new titles announced for it, Nintendo's next console will also be getting at least one port of a Wii U gem in the form of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. We've already heard about some of its new features, chief among them the revamped Battle Mode, but thus far we've only seen two of these modes in action. A recent PR image sent out by Nintendo, however, reveals that there are planned to be at least five, and the image hints at what exactly each mode will entail.

A recent tweet by publisher Nicalis has revealed new details about the user interface of Nintendo's upcoming Switch console. The tweeted image was quickly deleted by Nicalis, but not before others managed to save and start sharing it. It shows off the UI for the console's portable screen, which includes a slider (presumably for recently played games) and icons for messages, settings, and something related to the Joy-Con controllers.

There will be a event in Overwatch in a few days to celebrate Chinese New Year, with several new seasonal skins becoming available to players to commemorate the occasion. Although some of the rewards are usually kept secret until the start of the event, it seems like we'll be getting a sneak peek at this event's skins, as a Chinese Overwatch player has leaked an ad for them on Reddit.

We've known since last year's E3 that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will be the first game in the series to feature voice acting on a larger scale than the typical grunts and yells. This was apparent in the reveal trailer when a voice says, "Open your eyes […] Wake up, Link," which also called into question whether players would be able to enter their own name for Link when starting a save file; this has almost always been the case since as early as A Link to the Past. But in a recent interview / gameplay presentation, series producer Eiji Aonuma confirmed that, for the first time since the NES Zelda titles (excluding the multiplayer spin-off Four Swords Adventures), players will not be able to change Link's name in-game.

Following the Nintendo Switch event, many gamers were quick and eager to preorder the console. Despite a rather thin library of games at launch, Nintendo hopes to sell most (if not all) of its hardware. According to research firm DFC Intelligence, they predict that Nintendo Switch will sell over 40 million units through 2020, which would be three times as many units as the Wii U.

We've seen the heroes of Overwatch turned into many things by fans since the game's release, including Pokémon. But why stop at fictional creatures when you can turn the cast into adorable kittens? A couple of fans have done just that, with one artist named Suzuran drawing every hero as a cuddly cat, and a dedicated 3D animator named Dillon Gu who recreated each of the offensive heroes' personalities in a 3D animation. You can check out both of these after the jump!

After its release on iOS devices in December, Super Mario Run will be making its debut on Android devices this March. The announcement comes from the official Japanese Nintendo Twitter account, which was shortly reiterated by the other regional accounts, so this appears to be the worldwide release date. If you're as excited for the game's release on Android as I am, you can pre-register on the Google Play store here.

The good folks at Playtonic Games are no strangers to quirky and inspired multiplayer modes. Without them, Banjo-Tooie, Conker's Bad Fur Day, and even the legendary Goldeneye would not have been quite so memorable when enjoyed with friends. So, with Yooka-Laylee's launch just a few months away, it really comes as no surprise that Playtonic has announced eight different multiplayer modes in that will accompany the single player campaign, all "designed" by the lonely, video game-obsessed dinosaur named Rextro.

During last week's Nintendo Switch Treehouse stream, we learned a lot more details about The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. One of the main focuses of the demo was the wild horses that you come across in the game. When you encounter these horses, you can tame then and keep them at stables across the world. It'll cost you a few rupees to register your horse at a stable, but once you do, you can find a lost horse from any stable.
