The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is a demanding game and while the Nintendo Switch is powerful, many are unsure if it’s that powerful. This is why it’s amazing to think that the game may be coming to the portable console. Several Asian marketplaces have put up listings for a Nintendo Switch version of the game according to a thread on ResetEra which also says the game will be released this September.
I would take this with a giant grain of salt as rumors like this happen all the time. Some say that because multiple resellers are listing it that adds to its veracity, but I still don’t buy it. The Witcher 3 is very intensive and CD Projekt Red has been said to be focusing on Cyberpunk 2077. That being said, it is possible that a team was created for creating this port, but even then, it would most likely require a lot of downgrades in visuals, especially when being played in handheld mode. I guess we’ll find out next month though during CD Projekt Red’s E3 presentation.
Call of Duty 2019 announcement coming tomorrow

The title for the upcoming game will likely be confirmed during the livestream, though rumors have already been spreading that the game will be called Call of Duty: Modern Warfare in a potential reboot of the Modern Warfare series of the franchise. We only have to wait until tomorrow morning to find out for sure what the game has in store, but in the meantime, what are you hoping to see during the announcement?
Call of Duty is a first-person shooter video game franchise published by Activision. Starting out in 2003, the franchise first focused on games set in WWII, but over time, the series has seen games set in modern times, the midst of the Cold War, futuristic worlds, and outer space.
The most recent release in the series was Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 in October 2018. The game is a gritty, grounded, all-out combat experiences that raised the bar for Multiplayer mode, increasing tactical gameplay and player choice along with the biggest Zombies offering ever with three full experiences. The game also includes Blackout, where the Black Ops universe comes to life in a massive battle royale experience featuring iconic characters and locations from all four Black Ops games in a one-of-a-kind offering that is uniquely Black Ops.
The recent Pokémon press conference was not as satiating as I had hoped. It was a moment for The Pokémon Company to announce some of their upcoming plans, but that meant that there was very little detail provided on a lot of things. The press conference started by announcing that the 3DS title Detective Pikachu, the game that was recently turned into a Hollywood film, would finally be getting a sequel on the Nintendo Switch. Other than the fact that the game will play out differently than the film, we didn’t get any other details.
That news was followed up by talk of the new Pokémon Center Singapore in Changi Airport and the Pokémon Center Shibuya that will be opening in Parco later this year.
Additionally, it was announced that Pokémon Quest will be the first official Pokémon game in China with 1.7 million users already pre-registered to play when it launches. The game will even have new features including PvP and social systems integrated. Hopefully other regions will get those at some point.
Finally, remember those cool Pokémon shirts? The Pokémon Company is working to bring those to the rest of the world. Not much was said to expand on that, but we were told that more details are to come.

The first trailer has been released for Hideo Kojima‘s long-awaited game Death Stranding and it’s nine minutes long! It’s packed full of cinematic footage, gameplay footage, and details on the story that it will tell.
After the collapse of civilization, Sam Bridges must journey across a ravaged landscape crawling with otherworldly threats to save mankind from the brink of extinction.
The game stars Norman Reedus in the role of Sam Porter Bridges and the trailer features him at work making deliveries across the devastated remains of the United States. Along the way he is being attacked by masked assailants with cattle prods and invisible monsters that turn swathes of the world into inky muck.
The game looks awesome and it also stars Mads Mikkelsen as Cliff, who is a researcher who speaks to a weird baby in a pod. He also plays the role of a badass commander of a squadron of skeletal soldiers. The game also stars Lea Seydoux as Fragile, Margaret Qualley as Mama, Guillermo del Toro as Deadman, Nicolas Winding Refn as Heartman, Tommy Earl Jenkins as Die-Hardman, Troy Baker as Higgs, and Lindsay Wagner as Amelie.
The game looks visually stunning and there is also some great creepy stuff packed into it as well. I love what I’m seeing here and I can’t wait to play it!
Death Stranding will be released on November 8th, 2019.
