Here is all the big news you may have missed from this past week!
Nintendo Delays 64 GB Switch Game Cards
The Nintendo Switch game cards currently only support 32 GBs, which can definitely be frustrating if you plan on purchasing physical copies of titles like NBA 2K18 or L.A. Noire, as they still require you to purchase an SD card for the system. Nintendo did plan on releasing 64 GB cards for the Switch sometime in 2018, but they have recently told developers that the cards have been delayed to 2019. The Switch’s biggest setback is its storage, and while these cards could potentially fix the problem, if you prefer retail over digital copies, it sucks we have to wait until 2019 for their release.
New Dragon Ball FighterZ Trailer
The latest trailer for the upcoming fighter Dragon Ball FigherZ, focuses on Tien, one of the 24 announced fighters for the upcoming title. The trailer shows off some of the fighters moves and abilities, which you can check out in the trailer above. Dragon Ball FigherZ will also receive an open beta from January 14-16, but players who pre-order can take part in the beta a day early. Dragon Ball FighterZ looks to be another great entry in the popular fighting game franchise when it hits shelves on January 26 of next year.
Diablo 3’s Retro Anniversary Event Returns
The upcoming Darkening of Tristram event, changes up Diablo 3’s look, with its “retro vision” which makes the title feel more like a game from the 90’s. The annual event begins on January 1 at 12 a.m. PT, and will run through January 30. This event should excite longtime fans of the series as it pays homage to the original title in the series, and will also include some event exclusive loot for hardcore fans to pick up.
PUBG Leaves Early Access on PC
PUBG, is easily one of the most popular games around right now, and it has finally left early access on PC, after launching in the program earlier this year. The 1.0 release brings many new ideas to the game, as players can now climb and vault objects, the release also includes the new desert map Miramar, which includes new weapons and maps that change how players will approach the game. PUBG also launched on the Xbox One’s game preview program for $29.99 earlier this month, but the title has much more performance issues on the system compared to the PC version, hopefully, Bluehole can fix the issues sooner rather than later.
