Back in August, RPG fans were delightfully surprised when Square Enix announced a remake of the popular SNES game Secret of Mana. The game is releasing on PlayStation 4, PS Vita, and PC next month. However, some fans are wondering if Nintendo will get any of the love since the game did originally release on one of their systems. Producer Masaru Oyamada has heard the voices of these fans and didn't rule out the possibility of releasing the remake on Nintendo Switch later on.

After the numerous spinoff titles that were spawned from Persona 4, many fans were expecting the same treatment for Persona 5. These expectations became reality when Atlus announced Persona Q2, which will use the cast of Persona 5, and Persona 5: Dancing Star Night, a rhythm game similar to 2015's Dancing All Night. On top of this, the company surprisingly announced Persona 3: Dancing Moon Night, which will coincide with the release of Dancing Star Night.

Both dancing titles are set to release in Japan on May 24th, so promotion for the games is ramping up. A batch of brand new screenshots and a tracklist for both games has been revealed. Head inside to check them out!

Back in 2014, Ubisoft decided to release two brand new Assassin's Creed games on the same day. Assassin's Creed Unity was released on the brand new Xbox One and PlayStation 4 systems and was widely received as a colossal failure. This overshadowed the release of the other game, Assassin's Creed Rogue, which featured the popular pirate gameplay from Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and released on the older Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles.

If you missed Rogue because it had to live in the shadow of Unity, you're in luck. Ubisoft is remastering the game for PS4 and Xbox One, even though it's only been a little over three years since the original game launched. Head inside for more!

Many Wii U and 3DS owners were saddened with the inevitable death of the online message board known as Miiverse. The service allowed players to share their favorite moments, opinions, or tips about any game they owned on the system. Miiverse was also known well as an outlet for amazing artists to show their talent and as the home of some infamous memes, such as the often quoted "Y cant metroid crawl?"

The online community was taken offline in late 2017, as the successful Nintendo Switch excluded the feature. But if you still want to see the goodness that came from Miiverse in its five years, you don't have to worry about a thing.

The Nintendo Switch has already become a massive success just ten months into its life cycle. It seems the gaming giant has resonated with consumers much better than they ever did with the Wii U, selling over 4.8 million units in the United States alone. At this rate, the Nintendo Switch will likely outpace its predecessor in its second year. Sales for the system are actually so high that it's become the fastest selling console ever in the US.

While I didn't play all the major games that released in 2017, I did get to finish every single one that I had been anticipating since announcement. Gigantic franchises such as Persona, The Legend of Zelda, and Resident Evil received new installments this year. However, a smaller title told a story of sixteen high school students and a demonic teddy bear in 2017, and it was the most captivating experience I've had with video games all year.

There was a point in time when 3D platformers dominated the video game market. However, gaming trends have evolved, and now most games seem to feature a more open world experience. With these larger worlds, 3D platforming games have become scarce, mostly coming from Nintendo and SEGA. But with the rise of indie game developers, this genre is being revitalized with a passion we've never seen before. A Hat in Time is one of several 3D platformers to release this year, and it represents everything you could possibly want in a modern day title from this genre.

Many Nintendo fans have been predicting it since the highly praised game came out earlier this year, but Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild just won the 2017 Game of the Year Award. This marks Nintendo's first Game of the Year award since the The Game Awards started in 2014. Eiji Aonuma took to the stage to thank the fans and the entire development team. He also promised to take the energy from winning this award and use it to continue making Zelda games in the future.
