Last week, news hit the Internet that Sword Art Online (or SAO for short) will receive a live-action adaptation on Netflix. This story came several weeks after the announcement that the Full Metal Alchemist live-action movie would also be available through Netflix, and if I’m being honest, plenty of other anime deserve live-action adaptations more than SAO. The first season doesn’t live up to the promise of its premise, and the second season features backpedaling character development, tentacles, and borderline incest. I can list seven anime off the top of my head that deserve a live-action Netflix original adaptation, and that’s what I’m about to do.

Samurai Champloo

Anime That Deserve a Live-Action Netflix Adaptation

Anime fans admire Shinichiro Watanabe, the creator of the legendary Cowboy Bebop. He also created Samurai Champloo, and while the show is nowhere as widely recognized as Bebop (nothing is), it still deserves to be admired. Samurai Champloo features Watanabe’s uncanny ability to combine any music genre with any setting; in this case, Edo-period Japan and hip hop. In lesser hands, this combination would be a disaster, but Watanabe turns it into the lovechild of Akira Kurosawa samurai epics and Aaron McGruder’s The Boondocks.

While the live-action Cowboy Bebop Hollywood movie anime fans have desired (and dreaded) has finally started production, Samurai Champloo has been left by the wayside, even though it is on par with Cowboy Bebop. While not necessarily fit for an epic movie, Samurai Champloo would make for an excellent live-action comedy, as the show is at its best when it features bonkers stories. Imagine: Japanese Samurai vs. American Naval Officers. In a game of baseball. Complete and utter lunacy.

Gleaner Heights on PC

Farming games are really quite charming. You start off by moving to a new locale, eager to get a start on your new life. It’s a rough start, just like in real life, but there’s a steady sense of progression that urges you to keep farming and striving every morning. Simple yet effective, this formula has hooked the hearts of fans throughout the years. In an attempt to provide a new twist to the genre, Gleaner Heights adds an underlying sinister plot, onscreen scandals, and a bit of combat for good measure. And while it might sound promising, these factors just turn the game into one big slow burn.

Since Gleaner Heights is a farming simulator at heart, you’ll be relying heavily on your crops and livestock to make a living. You play as your own avatar who decides to move to Gleaner Heights for no real reason. You have the option of picking your past profession before becoming a farmer, and depending on what you choose, you can get some nifty perks to help you in your new life. After finally creating your character, you are thrown into your farm and left to your own devices. While the freedom might sound nice for experienced farming players, it can feel a bit overwhelming for newcomers. Gleaner Heights doesn’t exactly guide you from then on, and you’ll be grasping at straws for the most part.

That said, the first thing that should come to mind is to start fixing your estate. The land is littered with grass, wood, and rocks, so it’s up to you to clear them. Players start off with the standard farming tools (watering can, hoe, hammer, etc.) and you can buy seeds at the general store. The farming mechanics are fairly standard, with players tilling the land with their hoe, planting their seeds, and watering them every day.

Gleaner Heights

As with most farming games, Gleaner Heights also has a stamina meter that limits what you can do within a day. The meter drains fairly quickly, so you are forced to find or buy items like herbs and food to restore your stamina if you want to keep working. You won’t faint if the meter burns out, but you’ll start the next day with only half the stamina. Similarly, players have to monitor the various weather effects in Gleaner Heights. While rain may water your plants, it can also wash away freshly planted seeds. Meanwhile, there are days when relentless summer heat will easily wither your plants, entailing players to water them twice a day.

You can also purchase some animals from other farms. Depending on what you buy, you can collect other resources, such as eggs and milk, to sell. Caring for livestock also follows a fairly standard process and you can leave them outside the barn to graze, assuming the weather is fine. It’s when they die, however, where things take a slightly eerie turn. Instead of magically disappearing, your farm animals will rot away in your farm. Forced to face the consequences of your actions, you must dispose of the carcass yourself.

Aside from tending to your farmstead, there are a few other activities you can do in Gleaner Heights. There is an open field filled with monsters near your farm, while a dreary mine waits for players near the waterfall. Mining feels incredibly dull as you are forced to simply strike the walls in hopes of finding some good materials, such as copper. I hardly got anything good for my mining trips, and I ended up avoiding the area for the most part unless I desperately needed ore to upgrade my tools.

Players will stumble across plenty of monsters when they explore, but they can fight back with their farming weapons or a bow. Combat is extremely clunky and hit registration feels really strange. You need to stand directly in front of an enemy to land a hit, which makes you wide open to an attack. More often than not, enemies will bombard you with their attacks before you can even land your first hit. On top of that, these mechanics make it extremely frustrating when facing off against fast enemies.

Gleaner Heights

If you continue to hone your daily skills, your character will gain a level. At every five levels, you can choose one out of a list of useful perks when you turn in for bed. Perks aren’t limited to farming as some can help you see better in the dark, grow closer with villagers, or earn more stamina. I personally felt like there were some perks on the list that shouldn’t have been there and could have been given to your character from the get-go, such as night vision. You’re pretty much lost in the dark without it, and it becomes pretty difficult exploring the town during evenings. Because of this, some locked perks felt like roadblocks instead of actual progression.

Farming might be one of the game’s selling points, but you can’t deny the attraction of a “darker” take on the genre. You can choose to mingle with the townsfolk, give them gifts, attend festivals, and become entangled in their twisted personal lives… or you can just ignore everything entirely. But where’s the fun in that? One of the game’s main highlights is trying to uncover the history of Gleaner Heights and everyone’s personal secrets, after all.

So, naturally, most players will want to get out there and try to learn more about the town of Gleaner Heights. The thing is, though, that most of the ‘dark’ character events feel very far and few between. During one stroll, I uncovered a shocking scene involving a man abusing his wife in their house. It was a thrilling incident, sure, but the aftermath killed the mood. The couple stays mum about the abuse the following morning, nor does the local sheriff do anything when you try to talk to him. Nothing really happened after that shocking evening, and I even made it a point to scour the town every night with the hopes of finding more dirty deeds.

It doesn’t really help when the game hardly drops clues about story events and villagers almost always have the same lines. Moreover, the lack of character portraits didn’t really help flesh out the superficial townspeople of Gleaner Heights, especially since some of the others really feel like NPCs casually thrown into the game. Gleaner Heights also suffers from a handful of spelling mistakes, bugs, and awkward writing. Having said that, the game is still brimming with different possibilities. Some of the romanceable villagers are locked behind the story, and there seem to be plenty of other crimes hidden within Gleaner Heights.

The visuals, on the other hand, are reminiscent of the classic Harvest Moon on the SNES. The sprites look fairly decent, but it’s the palettes that really accentuate the game’s gothic themes. The music is serviceable, but nothing about it really sticks out from other upbeat tracks in the farming genre.

I finished my playthrough by burning through a little over after the first year with nothing to show for it. What’s more, I never felt closer to actually learning anything new about the story, which is pretty disappointing since it was built on the premise of delivering a “darker” farming simulator. Because of this, Gleaner Heights never felt too different from most of the modern and classic titles in its genre. There’s a good idea in here somewhere, I just never got to see it.

Despite promising a fresh take on the farming genre, the execution just falls short. Decent farming mechanics aside, the clunky combat and slow burn of a story really just take away from the experience. There should be plenty of things to do in Gleaner Heights, but the lack of clear direction might even boggle the most seasoned farming veterans.

Score: 2.5/5 – Poor


Pros

  • Decent farming mechanics.
  • Plenty of story and romance possibilities to unlock.

Cons

  • Clunky combat.
  • Progression feels stunted.
  • Really slow story.
  • Townspeople feel really one-dimensional.

Final Fantasy XV was originally released at the end of 2016, and Square Enix just won’t let this game fade away into nothing, it seems. According to an interview with Dengeki Online (via Game Informer), director Hajime Tabata stated that the team wanted to continue to create more DLC content for the game.

There are three episodes planned for a 2018 release, and the first one will revolve around antagonist Ardyn Izunia. Tabata has previously stated that the team was aware of the fans’ desire for a story episode about Luna, though nothing concrete has been announced just yet. In the interview, Tabata announced that they’ve decided to work on a fourth episode, on top of the three announced for this year, and we should expect to see these episodes spread out across 2018 and into next year.

The first three episodes revolved around Gladiolus, Prompto, and Ignis, and they’re already available as part of the first season pass. Final Fantasy XV: Royal Edition will be coming to PS4 and Xbox One on Mar. 6, and the Windows Edition will be releasing that day as well.

Since the game’s official launch, Dragon Ball FighterZ has had a bit of a rough start where online matches are concerned. Players have reported that they’ve been getting disconnected and kicked out of the lobby, and there’s also some difficulty in matching up with other players in Ring Matches. For the most part, the multiplayer portion of the game is still playable, but these issues definitely need to be ironed out.

Bandai Namco and game producer Tomoko Hiroki have stated that there will be two patches coming soon to resolve these problems. The first patch is slated for release by the end of February, and there will be another one coming in March.

We’ve still got a ways to go before these patches drop, but hopefully it’ll be worth the wait. Dragon Ball FighterZ is now available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

While we won’t see the the Detective Pikachu movie for a while, which has a release date of May 10, 2019 and will inexplicably feature Ryan Reynolds as Detective Pikachu, the Detective Pikachu game release date is much closer: next month (Mar. 23, to be exact).

Just last night, Nintendo dropped a new trailer for the Detective Pikachu game. It features two minutes of cute moments, story exposition, and Detective Pikachu’s warm baritone voice.

The story revolves around Tim’s quest to find out what happened to his father as he explores Ryme City with his pal Detective Pikachu. Along the way, they encounter varying shenanigans, solve puzzles, and generally get into and out of trouble. Everyone’s favorite genetically modified Psychic-type Pokemon, Mewtwo, is somehow involved, too.

Nintendo’s site for the game is live and features a release date, art gallery, and some info about the game. It seems that Nintendo and Game Freak are cognizant of youngsters playing the game, and are including an Easy Mode to help. We will also see a larger-than-normal Detective Pikachu Amiibo:

For those players who are new to sleuthing and may need some help in uncovering the evidence, Detective Pikachu features an Easy Mode, where Pikachu will provide handy hints on what to do or where to go next.

A cool Detective Pikachu amiibo is also planned for release at game launch. It’s larger than a regular amiibo, and it will allow players to view all the Pika Prompts from chapters they have completed, including ones they missed finding earlier.

Detective Pikachu was originally released in Japan in 2016, but this year’s release marks the first time it will be available in any region outside of Japan, where it will get European and Australasia releases in addition to its North America release.

Our favorite yellow detective will sleuth his way onto shelves this Mar. 23. It is available for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems.

NieR: Automata has just turned a year old today. The game originally launched on the PS4 in Japan on Feb. 22, 2017, and it seems like Square Enix has something special for its first anniversary. Taking to Twitter, the company announced that they will be holding a continuous Niconico live stream from Mar. 3 to 4.

While there’s no word on any possible announcements, Square Enix will be sharing more details about the stream on the 26. For now, fans will have to keep waiting for further details until then.

NieR: Automata is an action role-playing game developed by PlatniumGames. The game follows the story of android 2B, 9S, and A2 as they fight to reclaim their world ravaged by powerful machines. Most of the gameplay features role-playing elements mixed with action-based combat. Players are constantly swerving away from projectiles and attacks while countering with their own powerful strikes.

The game also features multiple endings and epilogues (26 in total), with a majority of them non-cannon to the main story. Meanwhile, the other endings provide a different perspective to the plot, urging players to finish the story multiple times.

NieR: Automata is available now on the PS4.

Sega of America and Paramount Pictures have officially announced that the live-action Sonic the Hedgehog movie will be co-produced by the two companies and will be releasing in theaters on Nov. 15, 2019 in the United States. After the U.S. premiere, the film will be rolling out internationally.

The Sonic the Hedgehog movie is planned to be the “next step” in the expansion of the Sonic the Hedgehog property, making him to be more than just a video game character. Sonic has already appeared in televisions shows, comic books, and mobile games, making him as big as a character as ever. The live-action film is planned to have CG animations and is being worked on by several veterans in the film industry, such as: Neal H. Moritz (Fast and Furious), Jeff Fowler (Gopher Broke), and Tim Miller (Deadpool).

This Sonic the Hedgehog movie news comes just a few weeks after the official announcement of the Super Mario movie, being co-produced by Shigeru Miyamoto and CEO of Illumination, Chris Meledandri. It seems that every company is trying to get their hands into the movie business these days. Maybe we’ll get an announcement tomorrow about a Mega Man or Crash Bandicoot movie – only time will tell.

Bloomingdale’s is about to get a lot cooler this March, with the introduction of the Bloomingdale’s x Nintendo collection. The iconic department store will be celebrating all things Nintendo as it launches its spring campaign, which is called “Let’s Play” and adorned with your favorite Nintendo characters.

The collaboration isn’t relegated to one type of product, with bags, T-shirts, shorts, hoodies, travel cups, and shoes included in the slate of items you can pick up during the promotion. Designers from Marc Jacobs to Tommy Hilfiger are participating to bring their own special items to the table, and there’s a lot of different items to suit different tastes, whether you like your game references all the way out in the open or a bit subdued.

The launch is planned for an in-store celebration and unveiling on March 10, which is now being lovingly referred to as “Mario Day,” because of Mar10 looking just like the word “Mario.” And aside from the Nintendo-inspired fashion around the store, there will be lots of familiar Mario-related iconography to be found as well. If you want to grab some of the awesome-looking collection, you’ll want to make a (Mario Kart: Double) dash to Bloomingdale’s for the items to debut next month and make some of them yours. That Princess Peach bag is to die for.

Electronic Arts has announced that fans will soon get a sneak peek at what’s next for the Battlefield series along with the sci-fi title Anthem during its EA Play 2018 event. It’s set to take place ahead of E3 2018 at the Hollywood Palladium June 9 through June 11.

The event will show off a swath of EA Sports titles as well as Anthem and the upcoming latest entry in the Battlefield series. The three-day event will include hundreds of game stations with demos and some pretty unique experiences for those who attend. The free tickets will be available in the spring if you decide you’re interested in joining. There’s a new system in place to help fans get to more games and demos that they’re interested in trying out, too.

Anthem is currently scheduled for a release window in the first half of 2019 and Battlefield for this October, though we don’t know a lot about what’s in store for either franchise just yet. Hopefully the rumor mill shuts down soon and we can finally start getting some more concrete information about what’s coming, because both are hotly-anticipated titles.

Are you more excited for Anthem or a new entry in the Battlefield series? Let us know in the comments below.

Bandai Namco has just released Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 Plus for the Nintendo Switch, and it’s up for grabs for you to download right now. Your Switch may be burgeoning with a full slate of games, but this is one you may very well want to add to your collection.

The Switch exclusive features 3D graphics in high resolution with colorful and challenging new Pac-Man maps and the entirety of Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 from back in 2016 with a new two-player co-op mode called Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 PLUS 2P. Each player controls their own Pac-Man character with one Joy-Con controller, and when one player is caught by a ghost, the other can come save the day. Similarly, both players can work together to conquer the map and stave off bosses.

The famous Blinky, Pinky, Inky, and Clyde have returned of course, so you’ll have to face off against them if you want to make it through. You can play through modes like Score Attack and Adventure Mode as well, so if you’re tired of the regular Pac-Man vanilla gameplay, there are a few other modes to test out.

If you’re thinking about picking the game up, know that the Pac-Man Championship Edition games are fast, frenetic and colorful, and if you’re interested in seeing another side to the classic arcade game, these are a great way to see it.

Soulcalibur’s Isabella “Ivy” Valentine is making her way back to Soulcalibur with the debut of Soulcalibur VI. Zasalamel is also coming back to the series for the first time since Soulcalibur III. There’s a new trailer showcasing both characters and their abilities as well as what they’re capable of.

Ivy has been a staple of the Soulcalibur series and has appeared in all of the games except for the first entry, and now she’s back in the saddle with an outfit that looks a lot more like her original. The powerful fighter looks just as formidable than ever with her triumphant return this time around, and you can see her in action in the character reveal trailer.

Along with Ivy you can see Soulcalibur III’s Zasalamel returning three games later, with his scythe and quest to become the demon known as Abyss. He’s out to get Soulcalibur itself, but let’s face it — he won’t, not if players are around to keep him from it. That doesn’t keep him from being one of the coolest characters in the franchise.

You can pick up Soulcalibur VI on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC later this year with Sophitia, Mitsurugi, Nightmare, Xianghua, Kilik, Ivy, and Zasalamel with new character Grøh. Are you looking forward to the new Soulcalibur game? Let us know in the comments below!

Looking for a reason to return to Super Mario Odyssey after finishing it? Aside from the fact that it’s an amazing game, you might need some special incentive to do so. Nintendo has released version 1.2.0 for the game, which adds in the Luigi’s Balloon World minigame that you can access after finishing the game.

You can find Luigi and talk to him in any of the kingdoms where you find him and you can start the game, heading to Balloon World for either the “Hide It” game to let you hide a balloon somewhere in the kingdom, or “Find It” to find balloons hidden by other players. You can move up the leaderboards by doing this, and check the online rankings based on how good you are at seeking them out.

But that’s not all there is to look forward to. There’s also a swath of new Snapshot filters, general gameplay improvements, and new outfits that you can get after finishing the game. The Jump-Rope Challenge has been tweaked as well, as it gets a speed change after you’ve jumped 110 times.

You might want to bust out Super Mario Odyssey for a spell soon, especially for those new outfits.

Yume Nikki: Dream Diary, the 3D remake of the classic RPG Maker 2003 game, is coming to Steam tomorrow, Feb. 23. Before it hits PC, however, Kadokawa Corporation wants to terrify you once more with a new trailer called “Now, Wake Up.”

The trippy trailer is cut with a generous amount of footage to pore over, and you can see how unsettling the game is about to be when we can finally pore over it in full. There’s still little or nothing out there about what to expect from the game beyond its new look, as well as the fact that there are brand new elements and things we never saw before in the original 2D Yume Nikki before. Creator Kikiyama is working on the project and bringing some of their older creations to fruition.

Yume Nikki: Dream Diary will debut on PC via Steam and Playism in both English and Japanese tomorrow for $19.99. If you need to be scared on a budget, this would make for a nice winter pick. It looks like it’s going to really work that “new and unexpected” angle, which is something fans are undoubtedly excited for. In the meantime, check out the final trailer before launch below.

Sea of Thieves, the highly anticipated Xbox One + PC exclusive due out next month, has released another behind the scenes video this time focusing n a special type of PvE encounter, Skeleton Forts. You can check out the full video interview below, but here’s a break down of the most noteworthy information about this “emergent system” which also includes storms and shipwrecks.

  1. There are multiple Skeleton Forts around the world, but only one is ever active at a given time.
  2. You’ll know they are active because a HUGE skull cloud will light up above it.
  3. The hope is that players will all be drawn towards it.
  4. You’ll work through waves of skeleton grunts as you approach the fort itself.
  5. Fights are designed to be dynamic and you’ll need worry about new waves of enemies appearing outside while also trying to make progress in the stronghold itself.
  6. You’ll need teamwork and cooperation with other crews to pull it off.
  7. The forts will have a skeleton captain. A boss like enemy that is much harder to kill.
  8. Although cooperation will be key, only ONE crew (person even) can use the key to open a vault with special treasure and lots of loot. This key can be stolen by other players.
  9. There’s more loot in the vault than one crew can carry, opening up a natural conflict with other crews in who gets to take the treasure. Or maybe if you’re nice, you’ll all share it.

While we enjoyed the beta greatly, deeper more involved encounters like these Skeleton Forts will be crucial in keeping fan interest over a long period of time.

Check out the full video, Official Sea of Thieves Inn-side Story #24: Skeleton Forts, below to hear all about it for yourself. Did you play the beta? Are you excited for Sea of Thieves? Let us know in the comments below.

To celebrate the availability of Regigigas and Heatran to members of the Pokémon Trainers Club in March, three of the series’ developers break down what make the mythical monsters so special in a new video interview.

Posted to the Official Pokémon YouTube Channel, the video shows battle director Shigeki Morimoto, Ultra Sun and Moon director Kazumasa Iwao and Ultra Sun and Moon producer Shigeru Ohmori discussing what makes the legendaries stand out as must haves for the aspiring trainer. Whereas Regigigas blends power and speed to great effect according to Iwao and Ohmori, Morimoto makes the case that Heatran has the potential for devastating fire attacks through its Flash Fire ability. The full video can be viewed below.

Regigigas and Hearten are the latest legendaries to be rolled out as part of Pokémon Company International’s legendary release schedule for Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon in 2018, with two legendaries made available every month. This month saw Dialga and Palkia up for grabs, while April will offer Raikou and Entei.

Those interested in picking up March’s legendaries can do so by signing up for the Pokémon Trainer Club newsletter by March 1, which will net them a special distribution code.

Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are currently available on Nintendo 3DS. For more on the series and its future, check out our review of the series’ most recent titles and our feature on why the Switch needs a Pokémon game announcement to continue dominating the competition.

Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom has officially gone gold, Bandai Namco announced today. This means the game is right on track to hit its March 23 release date, after being delayed out of its original release in January. A new video released alongside the announcement, goes in-depth on the Kingdom Building aspects of the game.

Ni No Kuni II tells the story of Evan Pettiwhisker Tildrum, the young king of Ding Dong Dell who’s ousted from his throne by a devious group. With the help of new allies, Evan has to retake his kingdom and rebuild it from the grouns up. To do this, apparently Evan will be able to recruit talented individuals from around the world, and get them to come work with him.

The video points at that at key points in the story you may need to construct something like a boat or airship, and facilities in your kingdom will allow you to do just that. As your kingdom grows it’ll be able to support you and your party even more. On top of building the kingdom, you’ll be able to lead armies out onto the world map and engage with enemies in Skirmish Mode. Take a look at the full video down below.

Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom will launch on March 23 for PS4 and PC.

TERA the long standing PC MMORPG released back in 2011, is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One at some point this spring and an open beta is on the way. On March 9, players will be able to download the open beta which will begin at 6:00 a.m PST and run until March 12 at 12:00 a.m PST. Alongside this announcement developers En Masse Entertainment have released a new trailer. Take it away YouTube:

The game features lots of typical MMORPG fare such as classes, questing, raiding, etc. but features gameplay more in line with action RPGs. Traditional MMORPGs don’t frequent consoles all that often, Square Enix supported ones aside. So if you’re primarily a console player looking for something other than Final Fantasy XIV (PS4 only as far as consoles go), the open beta is a pretty low risk way to see if TERA is something you like.

Full details from the press release today are below:

“SEATTLE, WASHINGTON – February 22, 2018 – En Masse Entertainment announced today that the Open Beta for TERA on Xbox One and PlayStationⓇ4 computer entertainment system will run from March 9, 2018 at 6:00 a.m. Pacific (PST) until March 12, 2018 at 12:00 a.m. Pacific (PST). PlayStationⓇ4 and Xbox One players will have access to the Beta by visiting the PlayStationⓇStore or Microsoft Store beginning on March 9.

TERA’s development team at Bluehole, Inc. has taken great care to adapt the vast world of TERA and it’s best-in-genre action combat to console platforms,” said Matt Denomme, Sr. Product Manager at En Masse Entertainment. “We feel the results speak for themselves and we’re excited to get the game in the hands of players during our upcoming Open Beta event weekend. Consoles need a solid MMORPG and TERA is prepared to deliver.

TERA brings true action combat into a high fantasy MMORPG setting. Players explore a vast world where their combat skills are put to the test against deadly Big Ass Monsters (BAMs). They’ll need to actively dodge out of the way of incoming attacks, study enemy attack patterns, and execute precise skill combos to take them down!

With a character type to match nearly every play style and innumerable customization options, TERA gives every player a gameplay experience that is uniquely their own. Quest solo, bring your friends, or make new ones…the world of TERA awaits.

TERA will be available across the Xbox One family of devices, including Xbox one X, from Microsoft and PlayStationⓇ4 computer entertainment system in Spring 2018. For more information on TERA, please visit the official site tera.enmasse.com and follow the progress of the game on FacebookTwitter, and YouTube.”

Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 Plus has just released for the Nintendo Switch, and it feels right at home on the system. The arcade genre of games has been slowly creeping onto Nintendo’s hybrid system with the likes of the Arcade Archives series, Namco Museum, and the recently announced series of Data East titles. While the ones we’ve got so far are great, production for Switch versions of arcade ports or remakes needs to be ramped up. The system is just perfect for them.

Obviously, the portability of the Switch is excellent for arcade games. That “one last try” mentality was born in the 70’s with coin-op games like Pac-Man, Space Invaders, and Donkey Kong. That “one last try” was going to be the one where you finally topped your personal high score. The problem with that was that not only were you confined to the opening hours of wherever owned the arcade cabinet, but you were also limited to the number of quarters that you had in your pocket. With the birth of home video game consoles in the 70’s, you could theoretically play an inferior port of your favorite arcade game for as long as you wanted, but you’d likely be kicked off the TV by your parents whenever Happy Days was about to start.

With the Switch, however, all of these limitations vanish. If your parents want to kick you off of the TV to watch the latest episode of Game of Thrones, just pop that bad boy into handheld mode and you’re good to go. Or imagine this: you’re on the train back from work. You only have one life left, and you’re so close to beating your score. It’s so intense that you’ll need 100% concentration so that you don’t screw it up. Pause the game, bring it home, pop it in the dock, and earn your well-deserved 3,333,360 points.

But the ability to switch between TV and handheld mode isn’t the Switch’s only unique feature. In fact, some developers have experimented with the Switch’s form factor to create interesting experiences, including Bandai Namco with its recent Switch version of Namco Museum. This game allows you to play in TATE mode while the Switch is undocked. Unlike home TVs, and most handheld consoles, arcade cabinets would often feature vertical screens. The TATE mode in Namco Museum allows you to flip your Switch system 90 degrees, and just like that you’re playing with a vertical screen. It’s a really cool feature that can only really be possible with the Switch. I can’t say this is a feature entirely exclusive to the Switch, though, as Namco Museum on the original PlayStation also had this mode, but required that you tilted your whole TV set. Kind of impractical, but also kind of hilarious. Suffice it to say, the feature is a much better fit for the Switch.

namco museum, galaga

Many arcade games’ multiplayer modes, including Pac-Man, Asteroids, and Galaga, had players take it in turns playing the game. But there are also a number of arcade games, such as Mario Bros., Centipede, and Joust that feature two players on the screen at once. Unlike other consoles, these multiplayer modes are immediately accessible on the Switch without the need to purchase any additional accessories, thanks to the console coming with two Joy-Cons out of the box. We’ve already seen Mario Bros. in the form of Arcade Archives Mario Bros., and that game works great with the two Joy-Cons. The small, simple controller is easier for newcomers to understand than something like the Xbox One or PlayStation 4 controller with its reduced amount of buttons, and so it pairs great with the simple controls of arcade games. In the Switch version of Pac-Man Championship Edition 2, Bandai Namco even added in an exclusive two-player co-op mode, and it’s a lot of fun. Were it not for the instant local multiplayer capabilities of the system, we may have never seen a mode like this.

There really isn’t a better system to play arcade games on than the Switch. We’ve seen games that need to be graphically compromised for the system, like Doom, and L.A. Noire, but are there really any arcade games that would greatly benefit from the greater horsepower of the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X? I can’t think of any, and because of that, there isn’t really any reason why games like Pac-Man would be better on any system that isn’t the Switch. So let’s start seeing more arcade ports, remakes, sequels, and collections on the Switch. A Taito collection would be top notch. I need to be able to play Joust on my Switch, like, yesterday.

Good news for owners of Final Fantasy XV on Xbox One: The upcoming PC port of the game will support cross-play between the two platforms.

In a blog post made to their official website, Square Enix revealed  the latest port for Final Fantasy XV will offer cross-play between PC and Xbox One via its online mode, Comrades. The function will be made available in a post launch update sometime after the PC port’s release on March 6. As with other titles that offer cross-play functionality though, there are no signs that the feature will be made available on PlayStation 4.

The announcement came alongside many others related to the PC port, including information on some of the different DLC available via preorder through different outlets and the launch date of a free demo for the new version of the game. A breakdown of some of the most interesting offerings can be found here.

Originally released Nov. 29, 2016, Final Fantasy XV has grown and changed vastly since it first launched with the addition of the online multiplayer mode Comrades, story driven DLC packs and a slew of free updates and patches. Square Enix shows no signs of ceasing support anytime soon either; past the release of the PC port, three more DLC packs are planned for release in 2018, and a Royal Edition of the game is set for release on March 6.

Final Fantasy XV is currently available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. For more on the game, check out our original review as well as what the game’s director had to say about an all female spin-off title.
