Blizzard Entertainment recently announced that they'd be releasing a new map for Overwatch, their incredibly popular team-based shooter. Eichenwald, a map consisting of a German castle and village, is now available to try out on the Public Test Realm. The map's medieval aesthetic reminds some of Dark Souls, so it's fitting that Blizzard has included a nod to the popular and punishing game franchise. A room within the castle contains a sword that has been thrust into a flaming mound, which is an obvious reference to the bonfires of Dark Souls. You can check out footage of the new map and the Easter Egg by clicking below!

Lots of stuff's been going on for Pokémon Sun and Moon recently, including a new sea cucumber Pokémon called Pyukumuku and Alolan forms for Meowth and Marowak, alongside a bunch of new Pokémon, a clip from a new trailer leaked online revealing an Alolan Raichu and more, and more screenshots leaked revealing the new Team Skull.

This was one of the talking points on this week's episode of Nintendo Week, our Nintendo-themed podcast here at Gamnesia—we took the discussion primarily towards Team Skull, who we think is absolutely fantastic. Check out the discussion video above for our full thoughts, or keep reading below for a brief, brief summary.

Last week Nintendo kicked off a YouTube series called Rescue V that follows an all-Toad rescue squad modeled after Super Sentai. The Rescue V squad will assist Mario on his journey to save Prism Island in the upcoming Wii U game, Paper Mario: Color Splash. This week's episode focuses on Rescue Red, who courageously aids Mario by getting a group of Purple Toads to do all the work for him. If you're not worried about potential spoilers (as the videos seem to include footage from in-game events), you can check it out by clicking below!

In celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Resident Evil franchise, developer Capcom is re-releasing the fourth, fifth, and sixth main-series installments on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Capcom has released two videos to show off the classic game running on PlayStation 4, including footage of The Village and an Ashley escort mission through The Castle.

Earlier this summer, Pokémon GO players flocked to a park in Japan because a Mewtwo was rumored to have spawned there. A similar event happened in Taipei this weekend, as thousands of people rushed the streets of the city in hopes of catching the relatively rare Snorlax. A video of the event started making its rounds on social media on Saturday, showing the mob of people rushing through the streets of what appears to be Taipei's Xinbeitou district—a district which in recent times has reportedly suffered from overcrowding due to Pokémon hunters. While it is uncertain whether or not these trainers received a Snorlax for their efforts, it's important to look at this and see how much the game has affected various communities.

If you're still playing Pokémon GO, make sure you're staying safe out there. No Pokémon is worth putting yourself in harm's way to obtain.

A few weeks ago, Crystal Dynamics announced that Rise of the Tomb Raider would be getting some new DLC later this year, including a new story-based pack set within the mysterious Croft Manor. Lara's family home will be free to explore and investigate in the "Blood Ties" pack, though there will also be plenty of dangers lurking in the shadows for the Tomb Raider to face off against. Included in this pack is an alternate mode, "Lara's Nightmare," in which Lara must defend the manor from zombie hordes. A new trailer was released this morning to show off both of these modes, so make the jump to check it out!

Following its hot reception at E3 2016, Nintendo has been keeping the hype for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild strong by regularly releasing short video clips. These teasers have given fans a look at the ruins of the Temple of Time, the return of the Koroks, the ever-useful Woodcutter's Axe, and the special Magnesis ability. Magnesis is itself one of several Runes that Link can acquire throughout the game, each granting him a new power. The latest Breath of the Wild clip shows off more of the Runes, including Cryonis, Stasis, and Bombs. You can check it out by clicking below!

Update: Eurogamer has decided to removed the video evidence of the new PlayStation 4 model. This decision was reached after they received legal advice on the matter. 

Original story: Yesterday we reported that a supposed PlayStation 4 Slim model had leaked on UK auction site Gumtree. The initial report contained some rather compelling photographic evidence, but images can be faked, so Digital Foundry's Richard Leadbetter tracked down the buyer of the upcoming console and acquired video evidence as well. A new video uploaded to Eurogamer's YouTube account gives us a close look at the upcoming console and shows it booting up.

Final Fantasy XV is a highly-anticipated RPG a decade in the making, and fans were prepared to dive into the fantasy world on September 30th, but developer Square Enix recently confirmed that the game has been delayed to November 29th. The extra time will be used to polish the game and to add some extra content, and it also gives Square Enix more time to market the game to fans.

The latest upload to Final Fantasy XV's official YouTube channel focuses on the English voice acting cast, introducing the game's prominent characters and the talented people who are helping bring them to life. The video also delves into some of the inspiration and motivation behind each character's personality and voice. You can check it out by clicking below!

More footage from Pokémon Sun & Moon was recently uploaded to YouTube by Japanese publication V Jump, and it shows off a money-making feature that's available to players. The description for the recently-revealed Pokémon Pyukumuku states that "Part-time work pulling Pyukumuku off the beach and chucking them back into the sea is available at tourist beaches," and this turns out to be rather lucrative!

Minecraft, the sandbox world-building game that hardly needs an introduction, is now available on the Oculus Rift. This version has been improved over the VR version created for the Samsung Gear VR, featuring a lot of cool new tidbits. For example, new turning features allow for a less-disorienting experience by only turning at increments. A "virtual living room" was also added, which lets you play the regular version of Minecraft from a virtual Minecraft living room, allowing the player to take a break from the intensity of VR while contemplating how meta the feature is.

The current version is available as a part of the Minecraft: Windows 10 Beta, which is free on Windows 10. Make the jump for more info and to watch the reveal video!

The Olympics have come to a close, but we only have to wait four more years before they return—and this time, they'll be taking place in Tokyo. Japan's prime minister, Shinzō Abe, took center stage at tonight's closing ceremony to mark this, and his method of entrance is sure to make any gamer smile: a giant warp pipe. This was accompanied by video footage that showed Mario in Tokyo, diving into a  warp pipe on his end; Abe then emerged from the pipe in the stadium, proudly waving a Mario hat to those in attendance.

Dragon Ball Xenoverse was a smash hit last year, and developer Bandai Namco Entertainment has wasted little time creating a sequel. Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 launches on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC this October, once again putting players in the shoes of a Time Patrol agent on a mission to protect history. Bandai Namco has released a short new TV commercial for the upcoming game that highlights a few scenes from the anime re-imagined as in-game cutscenes. You can check it out by clicking below!

Dragon Ball fans are eagerly awaiting the sequel to last year's Xenoverse title, and with the game only two months away, Bandai Namco has revealed a new trailer and some more screenshots for the game. The trailer gives us a look at the game's "expert missions," battles against powerful enemies that you'll be teaming up with five other fighters to take down. It also reveals the return of a fan favorite character from the Buu saga: Majin Vegeta.

A fan game called "Pokémon Uranium Version" came out last week, introducing a new Nuclear-type and a darker storyline. But the creators caught wind that Nintendo was planning a takedown notice, so they preemptively removed all their download links. Understandably, some fans were not happy.

This was one of the talking points on this week's episode of Nintendo Week, our Nintendo-themed podcast here at Gamnesia, and we think there's a big difference between this and the recently-struck AM2R.
