Brie Larson takes a quiz to see which Animal Crossing character she's most like

I don't think she's too happy

We already know that Brie Larson is an Animal Crossing super fan, and it seems she's not done spreading the love just yet. In a recent video from Brie, we get to see her take an online test to see which Animal Crossing character she's most like. If you don't mind spoilers, you can see her reaction to the pick and who was chosen for her below.

"I can't even say...I'm shocked. I want to do this again. This is shaking me to my core. I've never seen this character before. Pietro. Are you kidding? Nooo, no. Nooooo. Why aren't I Isabelle? Why aren't I Soleil? It's like I don't even know myself anymore. I don't want to be the clown Animal Crossing character."

We found out that The Pedestrian is coming to Switch awhile ago, but we still don't have a release date. All we know for sure is that it'll be sometime later this year. While we wait for more specific release info, you can enjoy a new trailer for the unique puzzler above.

Twin-stock shmup "Bezier: Second Edition" comes to Switch on Jan. 21st, 2021, major discount available for pre-orders

Blast the void

Bezier: Second Edition comes to Switch on Jan. 21st, 2021, giving Switch owners another shmup to enjoy. The game is normally priced at $20, but those who pre-order now can get it for just $5! Now that's a serious pre-order discount! Read all about the game below.

Bezier is a twin-stick blaster set inside a vast computer built deep underground. The story traces the principal's escape from this "Noah's Ark" gone wrong. A simple shooter on the surface, the deeper narrative pulls in his relationship between evolution and god, family and love. These themes question his motives, force him to confront what is real, and lead him to salvation.

Powered by BezierSynth technology, traditional rendering is renounced in favour of a fluid aesthetic guided by story elements and player interaction, while an 80 minute soundtrack blends together orchestra, synthesizers and many ethnic instruments to drive the drama through fifteen dynamic game zones.

FEATURES:

- Pure twin-stick arcade action
- Multiple playing modes
- Seven devastating weapons
- 15 different game zones
- 100 different enemies
- 80-minute soundtrack

Square-Enix talks about how the pandemic delayed Bravely Default II into 2021

Disappointing, but necessary

Bravely Default II is coming to Switch on Feb. 26th, 2021, but the game was originally intended to launch in 2020. Unfortunately, the pandemic led to a significant delay for the game. In an interview with Famitsu, Bravely Default II producer Masashi Takahashi went into detail on just how the pandemic pushed things back. Check out his comments below, as translated by NintendoEverything.

Development overlapping with the spread of the virus combined with the fact that we were unsure how long things would go on for had quite an impact on things.

As an example, progress on voice recording for foreign languages was slow. We had to coach the voice actors remotely, and they had to record in their own homes without background noise, then send the audio back to us – everyone involved really gave it their all, and we got it done. We’re a few months behind schedule, but we were able to get the voice work done without much trouble.

Both Square Enix and Claytechworks made the switch to work from home, though, so it took time to create home office environments. Even after we were able to get things going to some extent, we had a few miscommunications due to it being our first time working like that. It was a tough decision to make, but given the situation, we delayed the release to February 2021.
