Smash Bros. Ultimate's Next Spirit Event Is Themed After Glasses‎

Before Super Smash Bros. Ultimate released, director Masahiro Sakurai talked a little bit about the spirit board, a bounty board for spirits that you could fight and then play a minigame to free. He advised checking back every so often as the spirit board refilled, but a notice in the game seems to better explain why: themed events happen sometimes. The first theme is focusing on spirits wearing glasses of all kinds, including goggles and sunglasses. The way it is broken down still relies somewhat on random changes. Four spirits (James McCloud, Brittany, Jeff, and Brewster) appear at scheduled times. Other spirits, which I've listed below, will appear randomly and include the scheduled ones. Kazuhira Miller Nikki 9-Volt & 18-Volt Lloyd Elite Beat Agents Dr. Lobe Crusty Sean Annie Gracie Orbulon Teddy Toadies Madame Couture Wrinkly Kong Fawful Cereza Strangelove Nick Sumo Brothers Baxter & Forthington Sick Beats Doctor Muddy Mole Coraline Bisk Tatsu Lyle Count Cannoli Moley Professor Chops Toadsworth Most of these are available in the World of Light, but having extras lets you disassemble them for cores to feed to your spirits there. It's an interesting idea to have themed content, but the scheduling is kind of odd. I wonder if at some point they will start doing exclusive spirits, or giving rewards to people who unlock them all in a given theme. The glasses spirit event begins tomorrow on December 13 through December 16. You can read our review of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate right here.

The Crew 2 Free Weekend Starts Tonight‎

Vastly stretching out the meaning of the word "weekend," Ubisoft has The Crew 2 for free right now on all platforms that support the game. The free weekend will go through 12:00 a.m. PT on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC and ends at various times on December 17. You could actually drive through America in the time The Crew 2 free weekend lasts. The game is also on a deep discount while the free weekend is going on, so if you don't get your fill, you can also just pick up a copy at the end of it. Not all free weekends are available on all platforms, so you don't want to miss this one if you're on a console and have wanted to give the game a try.  You can find our review of The Crew 2 here.

The Overwatch League 2019's Schedule Posted, More Games Per Night Than First Season‎

Overwatch League, by Blizzard's metrics and most standards, was a pretty smashing success. The League made quite a bit of money and raised awareness of the game more than any marketing budget could have done with the same amount of money. In the follow up, Blizzard has added a number of new regional teams and added one more game per night than the first season had. In the newly released schedule, Blizzard has revealed exactly when in 2019, as they originally said, the new season will begin. Unfortunately for those who have Valentine's Day plans, the first games begin on February 14 featuring eight of the teams. This means four matches per night, which is one more than 2018's season. Considering an extra eight teams were added this year, it makes sense that more games per night would be required. The teams have a lot to compete for this year. Champions of the league get $1.1 million prize. So every time one of your turrets gets destroyed, that's basically like losing a car. You can find the full schedule of the 2019 games here if you want to start making excuses to loved ones and bosses for why dishes and work did not get done.

Star Wars TV Show The Mandalorian Releases Cast List‎

The Mandalorian, the first live-action Star Wars show since Disney took over the franchise, has been kind of a mystery since it was first announced. The Jon Favreau-headed series was quietly given a name and concept only a few months ago, followed by an update to announce guest directors including Thor Ragnarok director Taika Waititi. Now, Lucasfilm has released a cast list for the show and it's wild. From the official Star Wars website: "Pedro Pascal (Narcos) has been cast in the title role as a lone Mandalorian gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy. He is joined by Gina Carano (Deadpool), Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), Emily Swallow (Supernatural), Carl Weathers (Predator), Omid Abtahi (American Gods), Werner Herzog (Grizzly Man), and Nick Nolte (Affliction)." The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire but before the First Order emerges. Lucasfilm has not been shy about comparing the titular character to Jango and Boba Fett, perhaps to the point of implying a link between them. Despite the TV show being only for Disney's streaming service releasing next year, they seem to have spared no expense in the casting for it. It is likely that Disney is positioning this as their can't-miss entertainment product when they launch it on Disney+, which itself launches in 2019.

Former Sonic Team Members React To Sonic Movie Design‎

With a recent poster for the Sonic the Hedgehog movie showing proportions and fur that many fans didn't exactly expect, people have been talking about the new take on the cartoony mascot character. After an alleged leak of a cardboard standee in a movie theater popped up showing Sonic's legs and little else, not only have fans been posting their thoughts, but so have former developers on the Sonic Team. Thanks to the Twitter account @SonicJPNews, which has been cataloging and translating these tweets. From Shiro Maekawa, a former writer at Sonic Team:

Ninja Gaiden, Wario's Woods, And More Join Switch's Online Service‎

Starting today, Adventures of Lolo, Ninja Gaiden and Wario's Woods are available to Nintendo Switch Online subscribers. Nintendo launched the service in September with 20 NES games, and promised more every month. The Adventures of Lolo follows the titular character trying to rescue his love, Lala, after she is kidnapped by King Egger. In Ninja Gaiden – which launched a long-lived series – you play as a promising young ninja who travels to America to avenge his father's death and prevent his enemies unleashing an ancient demon. Toad's adventure in Wario’s Woods plays like Dr. Mario – but instead of pills, you try to align monsters and bombs. You can get a better feel for each game by watching Nintendo's announcement trailer below.  Beyond adding a trio of new games into the mix, Nintendo has also offered SP versions for Dr. Mario and Metroid which lets you skip straight to the endgame. For Dr. Mario, that means being throwing into level 20 at Hi speed, and for Metroid you'll drop into the game with all of Samus' abilities fully upgraded just before the battle with Ridley. Previous SP types included an endgame Link in The Legend of Zelda and a version of Gradius that gave you fully-powered ships.

Netflix’s The Punisher Is Still Getting Its Second Season‎

In a teaser trailer today that showcased its January lineup, Netflix revealed a glimpse into The Punisher’s next season. Last month, Netflix gave nearly all their original Marvel series the chop beginning with Iron Fist, followed by Luke Cage, then ending with the critically-acclaimed Daredevil. As it stands, only Jessica Jones and The Punisher have been left breathing.  The new teaser for the ruthless vigilante comes exactly one year after The Punisher was officially confirmed for a second season. So far, there is no official premiere date for when the series will air.

The Game Awards Doubles Viewership In 2018‎

The Game Awards has become a surprisingly big show in the years since it split off from Spike TV's infamously crass version that nonetheless commanded attention due to a TV audience. In order to get big reveals, the show had to prove itself, and it had to prove itself by getting big reveals. Now it seems host and creator Geoff Keighley can point to this year's numbers whenever he wants to convince a major developer or publisher to bring announcements to the annual award show. For the 2018 event, over 26 million people streamed the show over the internet, counting restreams and recorded broadcast views after the show itself was over. That number is up 128 percent from 2017's already fairly large number of 11 million. If you were asking yourself why there were so many Super Smash Bros. Ultimate commercials during the show, that's why. During the actual live broadcast, The Game Awards hit four million peak concurrent viewers. If you were one of the few who didn't pay attention to The Game Awards, we listed all the major news items from the show in one place for you right here. If you want to see the show in its entirety, we have an archived broadcast with Ben Hanson and Leo Vader walking you through the festivities here.

Epic Offering Services To Further Cross-Platforming Gaming‎

Epic has announced that throughout 2019 it is launching a suite of cross-platforming services for developers across seven platforms (PC, Mac, iOS, Android, PlayStation, Xbox, and Switch) as allowable on each. The services were originally developed for Epic's Fortnite, and will be "free for all developers, and will be open to all engines, all platforms, and all stores." These can be mixed-and-matched as the developer sees fit. Epic has released a 2019 roadmap for the services, which involve cross-platform login, ID-ing of friends, voice comms, parties, matchmaking, data storage, achievements, and more. Recently the company unveiled its own digital store to try and compete with Valve's Steam storefront. You can also read our interview with founder Tim Sweeney on that topic and look at a list of some of the store's first titles. [Source: Epic Games]
