DC Universe Online to add Metal Part I and II

Things are going to get dark...

DC Universe Online is coming to Switch on Aug. 6th, 2019, which will give Switch owners a brand-new universe to adventure through. As if that weren't enough, two more episodes have been announced for the game, set for Sept. and Dec. 2019 release. Check out full details below.

Just announced at Comic Con, DC Universe Online's next content releases pit the Multiverse we know against the Dark Multiverse Batman has just uncovered. New episodes METAL PART I and METAL PART II will launch this September and December.

NEW EPISODE: METAL PART I

In METAL PART I, Batman has breached the barrier between our world and the Dark Multiverse, and then disappeared. In through the breach storm the Dark Knights, twisted versions of Batman hell-bent on revenge. What is this Dark Multiverse? Who are these Batmen? How can they be stopped?

The answers lie in the exceptionally rare forms of Metal that the Dark Knights seek, Metal which must be found and returned before our world melts into the Darkness.

SJ'S TAKE: "Metal reveals the Dark Multiverse - terrifying alternative universes where Batman has fallen to evil. If you thought Owl Man of the Crime Syndicate was scary, you better prepare yourself for the Batman Who Laughs. The Metal comics are such a trip. We’ve had a lot of fun bringing this crazy, dark, complex story arc to life in DCUO." - SJ Mueller, DC Universe Online Creative Director

THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT METAL PART I:

Metal Part I will be a large-scale episode, with level-agnostic event versions of content available to all players for a limited time.
The episode will feature new and returning heroes and villains, including The Red Death, The Merciless, and The Batman Who Laughs.

The storyline will include singleplayer and multiplayer adventures set in iconic but twisted locales as our universe descends.
The episode will launch new player rewards, including new gear, styles, artifacts, base items, and feats.

EPISODE 35: METAL PART I will launch this September on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.

NEW EPISODE: METAL PART II

In METAL PART II, the saga of the Dark Knights, the Dark Multiverse, and Metal will come to an explosive conclusion. The Bat-God Barbatos has waited since the dawn of the universe for this moment, and it seems nothing can stand in his way.

LEAH'S TAKE: "When we were just starting on the idea to bring Metal to the game, we knew the size and complexity of the cast and story would be challenging. We started testing the waters with looks from the comics - The Red Death and The Drowned - releasing those styles. The reaction was so overwhelming we knew we had to figure out how to bring the story into an episode. The way we figured it out? Not one Episode, but two! Doing the story right meant taking the time, and the team really stepped up and made it their own. We knew we were onto something good!" - Leah Bowers, DC Universe Online Executive Producer

THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT METAL PART II:

Metal Part II will be a large-scale episode, with level-agnostic event versions of content available to all players for a limited time.
The episode will feature new and returning heroes and villains, including the Bat-God Barbatos.

The storyline will include singleplayer and multiplayer adventures set in locales too terrifying to be revealed now (spoilers).
The episode will launch new player rewards, including new gear, styles, artifacts, base items, and feats.

EPISODE 36: METAL PART II will launch this December on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.

I'm not crying, you're crying!

The final Splatfest for Splatoon 2 is a wrap. Team Chaos may have won, but Nintendo wanted to make a point to thank all those who dropped by and had some fun during the event. Check out an official Japanese video from Nintendo above, which pays tribute to the event, as well as the players.

Amazon Prime Day's top-searched item was the Switch

Consumers wanted Switch deals in a big way

What item did Amazon Prime day shoppers most want a deal on? In the US, UK, and Australia, everyone was looking for a Switch. The Switch topped the most-searched list in all three regions. Unfortunately, as there weren't really any major Prime Day deals on the Switch itself, the console didn't make the top 10 sold in those regions. Check out the full report below.

Top searches during Prime Day 2019 mimicked top searches on Amazon during the 2018 holiday season. The Nintendo Switch was the most searched product, dethroning the still popular Instant Pot.

The Nintendo Switch was also the most searched product in the UK, followed by peak-period favorites, like laptops and Fitbits.

Gaming and tech-dominated searches, with the Nintendo Switch, once again topped Australia’s list.

Australia’s top purchased products on their local site largely differed to other markets, with household items, like paper towels, dishwasher tablets, and nappies dominating the top 10. Even with the highest viewed products, Amazon Australia also saw a different mix in product demand.

Playing GoldenEye with a...piano

No, Mr. Bond...I expect you to play!

Those who haven't played an N64 before would have enough trouble tackling GoldenEye with a traditional N64 controller, but that wasn't enough of a challenge for Jackson Parodi. He decided to play the game using a piano. I can't tell you how that idea popped into his head, but you can see the results of his setup in the video above.

RUMOR - Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order showing very strong sales at launch

Let's hope so!

Well here's a bit of encouraging info, albeit unconfirmed at the moment. BenjiSales on Twitter, who appears to have connections to those tracking sales data, has some supposed information on how well Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order is doing. Again, we cannot confirm this information just yet, but we'll certainly try to get another source to back this up. Until then, take the following tidbits with a grain of salt.

- the game's first 48 hours of sales are tracking significantly ahead of expectations in U.S.
- could be the 3rd biggest Switch launch of 2019 so far
- tracking significantly ahead of other big launches on Switch, such as Mortal Kombat 11 and Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled
