Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are looking to add a lot of new improvements and features to the mix, and new, exclusive Z-Moves for certain Pokémon account for several of those changes. We first caught wind of the fact that Mimikyu would be getting such a move a few weeks ago—although it looks like it was also being teased in the Ultra games' first Direct—and today The Pokémon Company gave us the full reveal.

While this morning's Nintendo Direct focused almost exclusively on the upcoming Xenoblade Chronicles 2, a brief mention was given to yet another of Nintendo's major releases from 2017: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It turns out that another quest will be coming to the latest Zelda game in just a couple of days, via a free update. While we don't yet know what exactly this quest will require of Link, we do know its reward will be the outfit of Xenoblade Chronicles 2's main protagonist, Rex.

DLC for games is nothing new these days, with even Nintendo getting in on the action in recent years. It looks like they'll be doing so again with their upcoming Xenoblade Chronicles 2, as this morning's Nintendo Direct announced an "Expansion Pass" for the game. Five rounds of DLC appear to be planned for the title, which will roll out from December all the way until autumn of next year.

Head past the jump for all the DLC details.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2's Nintendo Direct just wrapped up, but one of the biggest new details about the game came right at the start. For a while now, gamers have been critical of some of the voice acting in the upcoming title, with many hoping that they'd be able to switch to Japanese voices if they wanted to. This is now confirmed to be an option in the game, with Nintendo planning to add the feature via a free DLC patch on launch day.

A new trailer for Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon dropped this morning, and it's brought back the hype in a big way—primarily, by announcing the return of the many Team villains from the past twenty years of the Pokémon franchise. Giovanni himself is reemerging at long last, and in doing so he's assembled the greatest big bads of the Pokémon world into a brand new organization: Team Rainbow Rocket.

Nintendo announced yesterday that a new Nintendo Direct was on its way, one focused on the Animal Crossing mobile title that they've been teasing for well over a year now.

The Nintendo 3DS XL has had several different editions over the years to give it some cool cosmetic looks—from a Majora's Mask themed one to the gorgeous Galaxy-themed handheld, most of these look great.

Since their reveal, Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon have had fans worried that these games were going to be mere remakes of the latest generation, slightly updated with a bit of new content but largely remaining the same experiences as Sun and Moon were. The Pokémon Company has been slowly doling out details on the changes to these new games, however, and now they've hit us with some major reveals that may just dispel your fears. It looks like these new games will feature massive changes after all, with tons of new storylines as well as whole new worlds you can discover via the Ultra Wormhole.

Nier: Automata came out earlier this year and has become an overwhelming success, with the gaming receiving widespread critical acclaim and publisher Square Enix announcing a few days ago that it has shipped over 2 million units already. It sounds like that success is unlocking new doors for the franchise, as Square Enix has now posted a new hiring notice to its website that strongly suggests a new Nier project is on the way.

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.
