    Ghouls 'n' Ghosts-Inspired Platformer Battle Princess Madelyn Coming Next Month

    Battle Princess Madelyn, a retro indie platformer that was Kickstarted in March 2017, has been eagerly anticipated by classic platforming fans that feel unheard by Capcom ignoring the Ghouls 'n' Ghosts series for so many years. The title doesn't hide its inspirations, though it does one-up Arthur by giving the titular main character a stronger motivation: her dog died and she's going to get some revenge. There's also some stuff about saving her family and her kingdom, but her dog seems to be more important.

    You can check out the release date trailer below.

    The title is developed by Casual Bit Games, who is best known for Insanity's Blade. Creative designer Christopher Obritsch's daughter, named Madelyn, enjoyed watching him play Capcom's classic platformer, but wished it was her in the game fighting the "Green Head" enemy, the Shielder. This inspired Obristch to actually feature his daughter in a game in pink armor she wanted to wear.

    Battle Princess Madelyn is releasing on PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC on December 6. Rather remarkably, Vita and Wii U ports will follow sometime in 2019.

    Abzû Coming To Switch At The End Of November

    Fans of ocean exploration games, which number higher than you would think but fewer than you might hope, definitely took note of Abzû when it released two years ago. Developer Giant Squid games created a fairly stunning and altogether calming ocean full of flora and fauna for players to peruse at their leisure. Now the game is coming to Switch, so you can take the experience with you on the go.

    The news comes from a tweet from Giant Squid, which not only announces the game, but gives fairly firm date of November 29 for release. That's roughly two weeks away, meaning you won't have to wait too long to go on that diving trip.

    A lot of ABZÛ fans have told us they think the game would be great on the Nintendo Switch. We heard you, and we agree- it’s a perfect fit! ABZÛ on Nintendo Switch will be out REALLY SOON! Nov. 29! 😆

    You can find our original review from 2016 for Abzû right here, when it originally launched on the PlayStation 4. Now if only we could also get Endless Ocean on modern systems, too.

    Fans Unlock Classic Tetris Game Boy Skin In Tetris Effect

    There was a time where Tetris was such a cultural foundation that people often tried to keep Game Boys in their briefcases and purses just to play the Russian puzzle game. It is arguable that portable gaming as a whole was launched off the back of Tetris and would not have moved nearly as far or as fast without it. Thus, it makes sense that no matter how many Tetris games have been released, some people have a firm nostalgia for the dot-matrix handheld version above all else. It makes sense, then, that Tetris Effect brings you back in time thirty years to those classic days.

    As part of the game's weekly live events, or weekly rituals as Tetris Effect calls it, a goal is set for the community to collectively try to accomplish. Doing so this past weekend resulted in a skin being unlocked called 1989, which channels the aesthetic and music of Tetris on the Game Boy in a modern way. You can check out footage of it being played below from YouTube user tetrimaruzou.

    The skin was available to play during the weekend ritual for anyone, but you have to be level 50 to access it now. That shouldn't be too difficult, but it will take a little bit of time if you're not that used to Tetris.

    You can read more about Tetris Effect through our review right here, which also contains the game's quite frankly mesmerizing launch trailer. Tetris Effect is currently available on PlayStation 4 and is compatible with PlayStation VR.

    Path of Exile, the free-to-play action RPG that has been steadily building a huge fanbase of players through its expansions and live content, is getting yet another expansion. Titled Betrayal, the expansion focuses on an investigation into a mysterious organization called the Immortal Syndicate and tasks players with dismantling the syndicate's four divisions.

    "There are eighteen Syndicate members, each with their own personalities, friendships and rivalries that change as you manipulate the organization," Grinding Gear Games says about the new expansion. "You will need to bargain, execute, interrogate and even induce them to betray each other in order to further the investigation."

    You can check out the trailer for Betrayal below.

    Betrayal will release in December 7, with an exact counter to release displayed on the game's website. Also releasing in December is the PlayStation 4 port of the game, which joins the PC and Xbox One versions already released. The expansion will launch simultaneously on all three platforms, so you can start playing on any of them when it launches.

    Ashe Is Now Playable In Overwatch

    It feels like only yesterday that Ashe, the silver-haired gunslingin' hero from the southwest, was announced for Overwatch. It was in fact several yesterdays, as Ashe has now been moved from the playable test realm servers to now being available for everyone, so you don't need to wait long to start using her. 

    Ashe was announced at Blizzcon earlier this month as part of McCree's animated short, hinting at a past between the two old westerners. You can check out her overview trailer below, showing off her various moves and her ultimate, summoning a robot cohort named Bob.

    Alongside Ashe also comes the newest Overwatch patch, where a few changes roll out for other heroes. Mercy, Symmetra, Reaper, and Roadhog all earn themselves buffs in this update, which should be good news for beleaguered Mercy fans who have been watching her get systematically nerfed after an overcompensation rework last year.

    You can take this new patch, and the new character within it, for a spin right now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

    Couple Ordered To Pay Nintendo $12 Million For Running Illegal ROM Sites

    Arizona couple Jacob Matthias and Cristian Matthias have been ordered to pay over $12 million to Nintendo for running the pirated ROM sites, LoveROMS.com and LoveRetro.co. The couple admitted to copyright and trademark infringement, and allegedly settled on the lofty judgement rather than risk losing more in a suit Nintendo brought forth in July.

    Many have speculated that the high figure is meant to deter other sites from offering pirated ROMs, and indeed many other sites have shutdown following Nintendo's legal action.  

    Loveroms once offered pirated ROMs of games like Pokémon Yellow, Donkey Kong Country, and Mario Kart 64. The site has since shutdown and now only offers a simple message titled, “Apology to Nintendo.”

    The ruling is a major coup for Nintendo who will take ownership of the sites, and receive all Nintendo games and hardware still in the couple's possession. The ruling also included a permanent injunction ensuring that the couple will not infringe on Nintendo's copyrighted material ever again. 

    [Source: TorrentFreak

     

    Our Take
    This lawsuit and subsequent ruling shows Nintendo means business when it comes to its copyrighted material. We wouldn't be surprised to see other pirated ROM sites shutting down as a result.
