Billion Road - Japanese commercial

The first commercial for Billion Road is a tad disappointing, if you ask me. Where on earth is Billy Blanks?! Bandai Namco had Billy Blanks on-stage at TGS 2018 to promote the game, and while I don't think he had any idea what he was promoting, he was sure enthusiastic about it! He better be in the next commercial, damnit...

Dragon Ball FighterZ - A closer look and more details on upcoming Halloween-themed content, and the Galactic Arena

Dragon Ball FighterZ is hitting Switch on Sept. 28th, 2018. We're sure Bandai Namco is going to bring the game up-to-speed with the other versions, but we're not sure how long that'll take. That might mean we missed out on some holiday-themed content that the other versions are getting. Still, with that said, we'll cover that content just incase we do end up getting it in time.

Bandai Namco is adding some new Halloween-themed items to the game via Z Capsules, which are somewhat like a loot box system for the game. This content will include Halloween-themed costume colors, lobby characters, and Z Stamps. To get into specifics, Android 16 will have a Frankenstein look, with bolts coming out of his head. Birus will be available in a mummy costume, while Goku will be dressed up in some sort of furry-type costume.

Now moving away from the Halloween-themed content is the Galactic Arena, a new stage to do battle in. This is going to be a free stage for all, and is set to launch at the end of this month. The stage features monitors that display player information, as well as two jumbo-trons that broadcast the fight itself.

Dragon Ball FighterZ - Android 17 trailer and details

We recently shared news of Android 17 being added as paid DLC to Dragon Ball FighterZ. Obviously, this was announced for the PS4/XB1 versions, but will come to the Switch at a later date. Along with the new trailer above, we have more details on what the characters offers in-game.

The cool-headed Android 17 uses multiple barrier techniques and long-range ki blast attacks to deal with almost all situations. Nothing less to expect from the winner the Tournament of Power! His strongest move is the Super Electric Strike, a large-scale swirl of energy that can be executed both on the ground and mid-air.

Troy Baker was not asked to voice more lines for Yuri Lowell in Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition

Well that's a bit disappointing to hear. While all previous scenes with Troy Baker providing the voice of Yuri Lowell will be retained, new lines of dialog for Yuri were recorded by someone else. That's going to make for a slightly jarring experience, right?
