Tunche Gets A Switch Release Date, So You Can Save The Amazon Rainforest As Hat Kid

Five playable characters and co-op supported.

Initially expected back in March, there is now a confirmed release date for Tunche on Switch; it arrives on 2nd November. A fun little fact about the game is that one of its playable characters is Hat Kid from A Hat In Time, if you fancy a blast from the Indie past.

If you haven’t come across Tunche before it’s a beat ’em up with a hand-drawn aesthetic, which you can play solo on in local co-op for up to four players. There is a roguelike feel as each run will gain you experience to learn new abilities, but with five playable characters to master there should be decent variety.

Scalpers Are Selling Sold Out Xbox Series X Mini Fridge

The Xbox Series X mini fridge sold out in minutes, and now scalpers are already selling them online for hundreds of dollars.

Microsoft released the first wave of preorders this morning, which sold out in under 15 minutes according to potential buyers on Twitter. The fridge modeled after the Xbox Series X console officially retails for $99.99/£89.99, but it’s already going for more than double that on eBay.

A recent check on eBay showed multiple listings for the mini fridge priced at well over $200. Multiple listings have already sold at their listed price or accepted the ‘best offer’, meaning people are paying for fridges at double the cost of the MSRP price.

In the US, the fridge is on sale exclusively at Target, while it’s available from GAME in the UK. Microsoft says it’s planning to expand regional availability in 2022. It’s also important to note that Xbox called today the “first wave” of preorders, meaning there may be more chances to secure the fridge in the US and UK later on.

The Xbox Series X mini fridge has been a meme since the console’s reveal in 2019 when the internet immediately noticed the Series X’s resemblance to a fridge. Last year, Microsoft made a full-sized Xbox Series X fridge. Earlier this year, Xbox announced that it would make the Series X mini fridge a reality for fans to bring into their homes.

Pokemon Legends: Arceus Introduces Some New Mysteries With a Creepy Found Footage Video

A new trailer for Pokemon Legends: Arceus shows off a fresh glimpse of the Hisui Region.

The video is presented in an eerie found-footage format as seen in horror movies, showing off some snowy terrain surrounded by rocks and trees. You can check out the trailer below.

In the trailer, the narrator describes a Pokemon he sees by saying, “The tip of its tail is red and swaying,” and, “the white fur on top of its head and around its neck is so fluffy.” He also says it’s not a Vulpix or a Growlithe, so it’s probably a new form of an existing Pokemon, or a new Pokemon entirely. The Pokemon Twitter account is asking trainers to examine the footage and report back with their findings.

Pokemon Legends: Arceus is set to be a big departure from the standard Pokemon formula. While the game won’t be open-world, it will feature a handful of open areas to explore, similar to Monster Hunter: Rise. The game is also introducing a new class of Pokemon called Noble Pokemon, as well as a revamped battle system where Pokemon’s stats and other factors may allow them to use multiple moves in a row.

If this sounds like too much change, Pokemon purists can look forward to Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, which we called “the old-school Pokemon games we’ve been missing” in our hands-on with the remakes.

Grotto review: a grim, mystical tale about the limitations of language

Grotto. You live in a dingy little cave, the locals look at you with varying levels of distrust and suspicion, and occasionally your campfire will perk up and talk to you when no one’s looking, its yellow flames turning an ominous shade of blue as it whispers dread-filled words about failure and the beating heart of the mountain into your ear. It’s unclear how you ended up like this, but day after day you’re tasked with consulting the handful of stars visible through a crack in the cave’s ceiling to dole out advice to the local tribespeople, a group of anthropomorphic animals known only as The Brutes.

Said advice comes in the form of 24 constellations you can discover by looking up and drawing shapes in the sky with your mouse. You’ll need to give one of them to each Brute that asks you a question, but when every constellation has its own fortune-cookie-like meaning attached to it, finding the right one to answer their question successfully can be a challenge. As the toad man Ouuch tells you at the start, if you ask three separate people what the word ‘blue’ means to them, you’ll get three separate answers. Sometimes, your intentions will be misinterpreted, while others will willfully ignore you. But one thing Grotto always manages to do is to keep you coming back for more. Once you’ve set this car crash of consequences in motion, it’s very hard to tear your eyes away.

Feature: 8 Games That Missed Nintendo Hardware

The most mysterious omissions in Nintendo history.

Any longtime Nintendo fan knows that the company’s third-party publishing partners can be fair-weather friends. Plenty of the industry’s biggest franchises have been absent from Nintendo hardware for quite some time. In some cases, Nintendo’s own bold decisions over cartridges and standard definition gaming have cost them key entries in series that were once synonymous with their brand.

But, thanks to the Switch’s popularity, some of the most infamous games to skip Nintendo hardware have come home. Square’s ambitious Final Fantasy VII was once too big to fit on an N64 cart, a factor in driving the longtime Nintendo partner to opt for optical disc media on Sony’s PlayStation. The move apparently had Nintendo telling Square “never come back.”
