Musician St. Vincent says she's put 300 hours into The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild


St. Vincent is known for her music, but she's branching by appearing in a a new film called The Nowhere Inn. During one of the scenes St. Vincent had to play a video game, and it just so turned out that she was given a Switch as a prop. That right there got her sucked into the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. You can check out what she had to say at the 6:08 mark above, or just read the blurb below.

"Fun fact...I needed a gaming console for that scene. One of our producers had the Switch and had Zelda, the new Zelda in it. That was my favorite game growing up, but I hadn't really gamed since then. I was doing it just for the movie, but then...I was like, 'no hold on guys, wait...I'm about to get this tree branch.' Now I'm obsessed with that game in particular. I've probably put 300 hours into it."

BE-A Walker - more gameplay

You are the pilot of a battle mech BE-A Walker (Biped Enhanced Assault Walker). Your mission is to defeat the hostile natives to protect the colony population. But annihilation of the native race is not the only way to stop the war. Choose your side and make the decision that suits you best: to be a human, a true son of Earth fighting for survival of your race and killing whoever stands in your way, or to be a humanist who’s trying to protect the poor natives, victims of the greedy invaders.

Amazon adds a listing for a Switch version of Ancestors Legacy

The ancestors foretold it!

Back at the start of the month, we found out that Amazon Japan had a listing for a Switch version of Ancestors Legacy. That was the first we heard of the quad-based, real-time strategy game making its way to Switch. While we haven't had confirmation from the dev/pub yet, we do have some more retailer evidence.

Both Amazon.com and retailer Deep Discount have added listings for the game as well. They both show the game as launching on May 19th, 2020, which is the same date listed on Amazon Japan. With the evidence piling up, it seems like this port is the real deal.

Thanks to Sephiroth_FF for the heads up!

Mortal Kombat co-creator says having the series represented in Smash Bros. Ultimate would be 'a really cool thing to see'

Could it ever happen?

There are so many characters in Smash Bros. Ultimate that most people thought would never happen. Banjo and Kazooie made their way over, Joker dropped by, and even San from Undertale is represented through a Mii costume. Still, with all that said, there are other franchises that seem like they'd be downright impossible to have in Smash Bros. Ultimate. Mortal Kombat would definitely be one of those.

While having someone like Scorpion or Sub-Zero in Smash Bros. Ultimate would be next-level surprising, that doesn't mean people don't want to see it happen. Ed Boon, co-creator of Mortal Kombat, is definitely on-board with the idea. When Shacknews asked about Boon's thoughts on Mortal Kombat getting recognized in the Smash Bros. universe, here's what he had to say.

From my perspective, me personally, I can't speak for all of Warner Bros. or anything, but it would be a like a stamp of approval. Like being part of the gang. I would love to see something like that. ...that would be a really cool thing to see.
