Random Time! Hideki Kamiya Tweets out poll asking which of his characters fans would like in Smash Bros.

Hideki Kamiya has suddently created a Twitter poll asking which of his characters would be the most likely to appear in a Super Smash Bros. game. The current options are Dante (from Devil May Cry), Viewtiful Joe, Amaterasu (Okami), and Wonder Red (The Wonderful 101). 

It is unknown if this poll will have any sort of impact, as the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC fighters have allegedly already been chosen. With that said, it is still fun to see what a general audience may pick, and Kamiya is likely just trying to gauge fan interest. We will see if any of these characters make an appearance in Super Smash Bros. in the future!

Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission - Online Mode announced


Bandai Namco recently shared some information regarding their upcoming card battler arcade game, Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission. In the latest issue of V-Jump, they announced that there would be two different online battling modes: Regular Versus and Ranked Versus. The main difference between the two modes is that the Ranked Versus mode will have ranking system with a rotational rule system that changes every two hours. 

Bandai Namco then announced that the game would feature offline, wireless multiplayer options. If two or more players have Nintendo Switch systems, then they can connect and battle against one another wirelessly. Additionally, as an early-purchase bonus, the game will include Son Goku Xeno, Vegeta Xeno, Jiren, and ??? (Mystery character) avatar cards.

Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission is currently slated for release in 2019.

    Sheltered - Launch trailer


    18th December 2018 – Team17, a global games label, creative partner and developer of independent, premium video games in partnership with Unicube announced that Sheltered is out now on Nintendo Switch™. Sheltered is available digitally via the Nintendo eShop, priced at £9.99/$14.99/€14.99 with a 20% discount for the launch week.

    Sheltered is a post-apocalyptic disaster management game that gives a whole new meaning to the term “nuclear family”. After a global apocalypse, you take on the role of protecting four family members living in a deserted underground shelter. Combat hunger, radiation and mental exhaustion as you cling desperately to life in the cramped, cold underground shelter. You’ll have to leave the scant protection your new home offers as you’re forced to venture outside into the dangerous wasteland to scavenge for vital supplies which could ensure your family’s survival for just one more day.

    On Nintendo Switch, Sheltered includes the base game plus the Surrounded and Stasis additional content.

    Surrounded

    A family of three have discovered a large cache of supplies inside a hidden bunker, in a very dangerous part of the world. They have no way out, no way to transport the supplies, and are constantly under assault from gangs of bandits. The family has no choice but to split up. The father goes out in search of transport, whilst the mother and son barricade themselves inside and setup traps to try and protect the supplies until father returns.

    50 days

    No back-up

    You are surrounded…

    Stasis

    Earth is dying. There will be no recovering from the apocalypse that man has unleashed onto the world, you must reach out to the stars and find a new home…

    In Sheltered: Stasis you must find a way to leave your hostile home planet behind you by building and launching a rocket. The scenario will be complete when you gather all the rocket parts and successfully launch, or, if your family perishes. There are eight different endings available for you to discover - all depending on the success or failure of your mission.

    Sheltered is available digitally via the Nintendo eShop, priced at £9.99/$14.99/€14.99 with a 20% discount for the launch week.

    “We are thrilled to see such a strong reaction from consumers in the second holiday season for Nintendo Switch,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “We’re looking forward to delivering more excitement and smiles to our fans in the coming year and beyond.”

    The following data from Nintendo of America is specific to the U.S. only:

    • Nintendo hardware unit and dollar sales for 2018 are at their highest annual totals since 2011.
    • Nintendo eShop sales have grown 105 percent over 2017.
    • Evergreen Nintendo Switch games have set new milestones, with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe selling over 4 million and 5 million units, respectively. Super Mario Odyssey has sold over 4.7 million units.
    • In addition to the fast-selling Super Smash Bros. Ultimate game, other recently released games that continue to make a splash include Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!, which together total 2 million units, and Super Mario Party at 1.4 million.
