Fire Emblem Warriors launches next week in Japan, so it's no surprise that the last members of the roster have been getting their reveals this week at Tokyo Game Show. We saw a leak early last week that looked to reveal the final five additions to the roster, and after Lyn, Celica, and (seemingly) Anna were confirmed, we've been waiting for the final two to officially join the fight. That wait is now over; at long last, Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light's Caeda and Tiki have been officially confirmed for Fire Emblem Warriors.

DOOM was revealed to be coming to Nintendo Switch last week, and during Tokyo Game Show 2017 this week gaming publications got their first chance to play the new port. Amidst a great deal of praise from a lot of places, there was one downside to the port that several noticed: the game, which runs at 60 frames-per-second on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, appeared to only be hitting 30 FPS on the Switch. Bethesda has now confirmed this to be the case, along with a few other details about the title.

Sonic fans were hyped when Shadow the Hedgehog was revealed as a playable DLC character for Sonic Forces a few days ago, and I saw a number of comments saying something to the effect of "now they just need to do Sonic Adventure 3!" Well, my friends, much as I hate to burst your bubble, it doesn't sound like that's going to happen anytime soon. Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka was recently asked about this very topic, and his comments indicate that SEGA has little to no interest in returning to Sonic Adventure right now.

Bethesda has shown a surprising amount of support for the Nintendo Switch, far more than they have for most consoles from the Big N. We've known about Skyrim coming since day one, and last week they announced that DOOM and the upcoming Wolfenstein II are also heading to the console-handheld hybrid. Now we're hearing that there's interest in bringing yet another Bethesda-published title to Nintendo's platform: The Evil Within 2. Nothing is confirmed yet, but given the man who's expressing interest, it could definitely happen.

Fire Emblem Warriors is less than a month away for most of the world, but Japan is getting it in a mere week, and that means it's time for Nintendo and Koei Tecmo to provide the final reveals for their upcoming title. During the Tokyo Game Show today, they've confirmed yet another character from that leak a few days back, and it's the second character that had gamers dubious: Celica. Fire Emblem Echoes' princess of Zofia will indeed be joining the fight!

Ever since hackers discovered that a copy of NES Golf is present on every Nintendo Switch console this past weekend, countless individuals have been working to uncover why it was placed there and how Nintendo intended for gamers to be able to naturally access the easter egg. Now, some members of the community believed they've figured it out, but it's going to take a while for most of us to test it out. And that's because, if they are correct, this is no mere easter egg—it's a touching tribute to late Nintendo president Satoru Iwata himself.

Monster Hunter fans were in for a treat during E3, when Capcom revealed the next entry in the franchise, Monster Hunter: World, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. During their Tokyo Game Show pre-show conference last night, Sony finally provided us with a solid release date for this new title; when they said the game would launch in "early 2018" at E3, they were not joking, as we won't even be a month into the new year before we can play this HD adventure, at least on consoles.

Humble Bundle launched in 2010, and ever since gamers have become quite fond of the group and the ability it grants to let them both save on awesome games and give money to various charities. After seven years of operation, that fondness is more apparent than ever, as Humble Bundle has now announced that it has raised over $100 million for charity in its lifetime.

A while back, data miners discovered that every Nintendo Switch has an NES emulator buried within its hardware, mysteriously named "Flog." Now they've uncovered the probable meaning behind that name, as it turns out that the Switch has an NES game pre-installed with the console as well: the NES title Golf. What's more, this old game has been remade to allow the use of a brand new control scheme, namely motion controls.

Dragon Ball and fighting genre fans alike are eagerly anticipating Arc System Works' upcoming 2D brawler, Dragon Ball FighterZ, and we now have three more reasons to be excited.

When Nintendo puts out their Nintendo Directs, they often make a separate one for each major region of the world they're operating in—at least one for America, one for Europe, and one for Japan, each of which has slightly different content. Sometimes these differences, however, can hide major reveals that other regions wouldn't be privy to. That's what happened last night, as the Fire Emblem Warriors segment of the European Nintendo Direct looks to contain several characters that have not been officially announced yet.

Today's Nintendo Direct brought with it a ton of news on games both new and old, and one set of newly-announced titles really fits into both of those categories! Nintendo is reaching into their vault of games and pulling out a number of titles that debuted not on their home gaming consoles, but rather the arcade systems that Nintendo focused on in the 1980s, before the NES took off. These titles are on now being brought back for the Nintendo Switch under the series name of "Arcade Archives."
