Nintendo Switch owners who don't game on other platforms weren't able to join in on the Resident Evil 2 remake fun last month, but Capcom hasn't forgotten about them. Last November, Capcom announced plans to bring Resident Evil, Resident Evil 0, and Resident Evil 4 all to Switch sometime in 2019. We haven't heard much about the ports since then, but that will be changing very soon.

Game Informer's Imran Khan recently dropped the juicy teaser that he's heard Nintendo is reviving a game that was officially canceled. Naturally, this has excited Nintendo fans around the world and triggered widespread speculation. What buried treasure could Nintendo be digging back up? One of the most popular suggestions is former Xbox One exclusive Scalebound from PlatinumGames, but we have our doubts. As it turns out, so does Liam Robertson, the man who first broke the story that it was canceled.

Millions of fans around the world are currently enjoying Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu and Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee, but Game Freak isn't just coasting on the strong sales of their most recent releases.

Possibly quite soon!

The weekly hardware and software sales numbers from Japan are in, courtesy of Media Create, and it was a bit of a mixed bag. PlayStation 4 received multiple big games (which might as well have been exclusives given the lack of Xbox interest in Japan) like Jump Force, Catherine: Full Body, Far Cry: New Dawn, and Metro Exodus, but Sony's console actually saw slightly decreased sales over last week. Meanwhile, Nintendo Switch coasted to an easy first place (and increased sales) with no major releases.

The NPD Group has just released its latest monthly report, highlighting hardware and software sales number in the United States. Unsurprisingly, the long-awaited launch of Kingdom Hearts III proved to be immensely successful, as Square Enix's action RPG beat out Capcom's Resident Evil 2 remake for the top software spot.

Well, there's a headline I never thought I'd have to type. Forest of Illusion, a website dedicated to preserving Nintendo history, recently tweeted out a bizarre and amusing discovery. It seems that the United States Environmental Protection Agency poached music from Yoshi's Island DS. Why? To use it in a flash game about recycling, of course!

PlayStation Vita was far from the success story Sony envisioned when they launched it as a 3DS rival. Though more powerful than Nintendo's handheld, Vita lacked the system-selling hit games it needed to thrive, and it wasn't long before Sony began pulling back on first-party support altogether. Vita found a niche audience in Japan but never managed to gain much traction globally. Now, just over seven years after its debut, Sony is preparing to pull the plug.

For the past few years, Nintendo and Universal have been hard at work on a series of upcoming theme parks based on Nintendo IP. The first Super Nintendo World location will open in Japan in time for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics with Orlando, and Hollywood locations are set to follow in the coming years. So what can you expect from this Nintendo wonderland? A new batch of official mock-up images gives us a pretty good idea.

During the recent Nintendo Direct, we learned that Game Boy classic The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening is getting a remake on Switch. From the little footage we've seen, it appears to be a fairly faithful recreation of the Koholint Island we know and love, but with a fresh new look. However, the game's official website has people wondering if there will be some new content, or at least a new way to play.

Indie developer Toby Fox captured the hearts of many with Undertale in 2015. The hit RPG is a bit on the short side (with lots of replay value), but as it turns out, Fox has been planning a much larger successor for years. Fox released the first chapter of the upcoming game, Deltarunelate last year. However, he revealed that he'd need to recruit a development team in order to complete his vision for the game. Unfortunately, it doesn't sound like there's been much progress on that front yet.

Nintendo has been more hesitant than other developers to dabble in virtual reality, as executives like Shigeru Miyamoto and Reggie Fils-Aime have suggested it doesn't really fit Nintendo's style. However, that didn't stop Nintendo from filing patents for VR tech, and two years ago then-President Tatsumi Kimishima said Nintendo wanted to bring VR to Switch. If recent rumors are true, they're finally taking that leap soon.

Bayonetta was a bit of a cult classic, but afterward, developer PlatinumGames struggled to secure funding for its sequel. Nintendo swooped in to publish Bayonetta 2 as an exclusive, and its success allowed a third entry to be greenlit. We've heard relatively little about Bayonetta 3 since its 2017 reveal, but today we have some unfortunate news to report on that front.
