RUMOR: Pokemon Sword and Shield Galar-Region Pokemon codenames and evolutions may have been discovered

Well this is an interesting find

Earlier yesterday, we told you about the Dynamax Camera website for Pokemon Sword and Shield. This website lets you upload pictures and add in Dynamax Pokemon to them for a bit of fun. Of course, those hungry for more information on Pokemon Sword and Shield dove into the website to try and find more tidbits, and it appears some juicy details may have been discovered.

Twitter user abcboy101 has found what he believes to be codenames for Galar region Pokemon, as well as some evolution details. Check out a rundown of what he dug up below.

- Scorbunny: Usagi1
- Sobble: Chameleon1
- Grookey: Gorilla1
- Yamper: Inu1
- Rolycoly: Sekitan1
- Wooloo: Wool1
- Corviknight: Gcommondori3
- Alcremie: Gcream2
- Morpeko: Pospika
- Polteageist: Teacup2
- Sobble’s line is based on a chameleon
- Grookey’s line may involve a gorilla Pokemon
- Corviknight is a stage three Pokemon, meaning it has two pre-evolutions
- Alcremie and Polteageist are second stage evolutions
- Drednaw has a ‘2’ too in its codename of Gkame2 (kame meaning ‘turtle’ in Japanese), with the G likely representing its Gigantamax form
- It is possible Drednaw is also an evolved Pokemon
- Morpeko has no number with its codename, and so may not evolve
- Yamper and Wooloo have numbers, so they may have an evolution
- Duraludon appears to be a single-stage Pokemon
- Gossifleur is a base stage

Obviously none of this is confirmed until it comes from Pokemon Co., Game Freak, or Nintendo, but it's certainly looking quite plausible for the time being.

Famicom game 'Gunhed: The New Battle' gets a fan translation

An untranslated movie game gets its day in the sun

Gunhed: The New Battle launched for the Famicom back in 1989, but never saw an official localization. 30 years later, fan translation team 'filler' has taken on the the task of making the game playable in English, and they've just wrapped up work on the project. Perhaps now the game can find a whole new life with English-speaking audiences.

Gunhed: The New Battle is based on the 1989 film of the same name. The year is 2040, and a battle on 8-JO is about to begin, waged by a new set of people out to get the Texmexium that was previously found on the island. In this game, you'll be taking on the island's defense forces by building mechs with parts scavenged parts.

Xeodrifter gets fancy new artwork for its physical release

We've got you covered

We've talked about Xeodrifter's physical release a few times now, but we haven't shown off the cover art you'll get with that purchase. This cover really hearkens back to the NES days, where artwork was super detailed and eye-catching, while the graphics in-game were chunky and pixelated. It invokes a bit of a nostalgic feeling in me, and I really love it!

As we said, there are only 2,800 copies of Xeodrifter in total when it comes to the physical release, so lock in your preorder before they all get snatched up!

Armello updated to Version 1.0.4


After quite a period of radio silence, the Armello dev team has announced that an update is now available for the Switch version. This brings the game up to Version 1.0.4, and takes care of stability issues. Unfortunately, that's all we know about the patch at this time. If more details are shared on what the update does, we'll be sure to add them to this post.

Fortnite's Batman content to include a Catwoman skin

Cat scratch fever

Full details on Fortnite's Batman collaboration are coming early Monday morning, but it seems we don't have to wait until then to get a taste of what'll be included. As you can see in the image above, players will be able to grab a Catwoman skin as part of the crossover, complete with a special mask and grappling hooks. Now that we know Catwoman is going to be included, it makes you wonder what other Batman characters are going to see tributes.

OC ReMix presents Songs of the Sirens, A Link's Awakening ReMixed Album

The perfect time for a tribute album

Celebrating today's highly anticipated re-release of Link's Awakening on the Nintendo Switch, OverClocked ReMix today released its 71st free community arrangement album, Songs of the Sirens: Link's Awakening ReMixed!

Featuring 14 tracks from 14 artists, Songs of the Sirens pays tribute to Nintendo's 1993 handheld classic The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening, and is co-directed by OC ReMix veterans William "WillRock" Harby & Emery "DaMonz" Monzerol.

The album's artwork -- depicting a stone carving of Koholint Island's mysterious Owl and Wind Fish characters -- was designed by Canadian artist Roxanne Chartrand.

Songs of the Sirens marks OC ReMix's fourth Legend of Zelda series album, following 2017's Mirror Image tributing A Link to the Past, 2011's 25YEARLEGEND commemorating the franchise's 25th anniversary, and 2010's Threshold of a Dream previously honoring Link's Awakening.
