The unquestionably adorable title was originally announced back in 2017, and looks to offer a similar slice of side-scrolling platforming to Nintendo’s wonderful Yoshi’s Woolly World on Wii U – complete with two-player mode. It was initially expected to release some time this year, so its absence at E3 was a bit of a surprise. Now, however, Nintendo has moved…

The Nun Trailer Arrives, the Darkest Chapter of The Conjuring Universe

The first trailer for The Nun has arrived. Warner Bros. and New Line found themselves something special in 2013 when The Conjuring was released. Not only was it a horror movie that did big business at the box office, but it was one of the relatively rare mainstream horror movies that managed to win over critics as well. It wasn’t considered to just be good in the realm of horror, it was plainly a damn good movie all around. But instead of just making sequel after sequel, the studio decided…

FIFA 19 on Switch will finally let you play online with your friends

FIFA is returning to Switch later this year, in the form of FIFA 19, and EA has confirmed that this latest iteration will finally enable players on the console to head online and play matches against their friends.
