Octopath Traveler was originally announced alongside the Nintendo Switch. It has an incredible charm with its voxel art style, and is being developed by the same team responsible for Bravely Default on the Nintendo 3DS. Now, it’s less than a month away from release and the guys over at Nintendo’s Treehouse got to do a live preview of the game. They reveal some new playable characters that haven’t been seen before and assure us that you will be able to transfer your data from the demo to the full version of the game.

Octopath Traveler is coming July 13, 2018 exclusively for the Nintendo Switch. You can download the Octopath Traveler Prologue Demo right now from the Nintendo eShop.

Cuphead was a throwback to not only the near-impossible platformers we played in the 1980s, but also the classic animated cartoons produced in the 1930s. MDHR hired some of the best traditional 2D animators in the world to work on Cuphead, and you can tell. Now, the game is getting an all-new DLC expansion pack with a new environment, new levels and a new playable character.

If you’d like to see high resolution images from the finished drawings, we will update this post with a link to the completed drawings when they get posted.

Cuphead is out now for PC and Xbox One.

Super Smash Bros Ultimate was the biggest reveal of E3 2018 Day 1. Nintendo capped off their great first day with an incredible invitational tournament where some of the best Smash players from all over the world got together to play the new game. The game is currently incomplete and they could only access half of the final game’s roster, but it was an incredible event with big surprises (and celebrity cameos) none the less.

Super Smash Bros Ultimate is coming December 7, 2018 exclusively for Nintendo Switch.

Octopath Traveler Prologue Demo Released June 14, 2018

During Nintendo’s E3 2018 Direct, they revealed an all-new demo for Octopath Traveler would be released on June 14th. Well, I’m happy to say that it is currently live on the Nintendo eShop, but a link to download the demo isn’t currently attached to the game’s main page on the eShop and because of that it may require some digging to find it.

The fastest way to get the demo is to have Octopath Traveler news enabled on your news feed. There’s a recent news post announcing a preorder and preload option will be available for the game starting today (if you wish to purchase it digitally). You can select the Prologue Demo Version from the side of the news article, which will take you straight to the download menu for the demo. The other option is to manually do a search for Octopath Traveler in the eShop’s search bar, and select it the Prologue Demo Version from the listed options. Don’t worry, it is marked as a free download in the eShop.

I have no idea why Nintendo doesn’t currently have this demo attached to the game’s main page on the eShop, or why there isn’t currently a menu of downloadable demos to select from on the eShop, so as of now we will be forced to jump through these kind of hoops to play it.

UPDATE: This new Prologue demo functions differently than the previous one. You are limited to only three hours of gameplay in the demo and later sections of the game are locked out. However, you will be able to pick from any of the eight playable characters from the full version of the game, and your progress can carry over to the final version.

Octopath Traveler is coming July 13th, 2018 exclusively to Nintendo Switch.

We’re about to kick off E3 Day 3 coverage on the site, but before we do I wanted to publish something we missed talking about last night. The E3 Coliseum wrapped last night with a special performance of God of War‘s music by the Vitamin String Quartet. It was a one night only event, but in case you missed it, here it is. If you’ve played the game or not, I’m sure you’ll enjoy the performance.

For the second year, the guys at Insomniac Games sat down in the E3 Coliseum to talk about their highly anticipated PS4-exclusive, Spider-Man. They’re going to talk in a bit more depth about the game’s villains, and provide a full commentary for the game’s E3 2018 demo. Just be aware, anyone who preorders the game’s Collector’s Edition should not look at the included statue until they complete the game.
