Here’s everything announced at Nintendo’s Indie World Showcase

Missed the showcase? Here’s a round-up of all the games that were shown off. Nintendo’s Indie World Showcase aired last night, showing off more than a dozen interesting, indie titles that’ll be coming to the Nintendo Switch during 2023. The clue is in the name when it comes to what was on display; indie titles. So, if you’re looking for a morsel of hope that Hollow Knight: Silksong is happening this summer, I have to sadly break it to you that no, it did not show up at the showcase. That said, plenty of other games shown off might tide…

Netflix’s mobile gaming service could expand into television

Right now, we can play games from the Netflix app on our phones, but what if we could play them from our TV? In a report from Bloomberg, it has been revealed that Netflix might be working on bringing its video-game service (currently exclusive to the mobile app) to our television screens. It’s an ambitious move for the streaming service. According to the report, code has been found hidden among the Netflix app which references video games being played on TV, with our mobile devices being used as the controller. Catch the trailer for Terra Nil here, which is one…

Anyone with a Netflix account can play one of the most visionary games of the year – for free

Do you want to save the world with ecologically-viable tech? Want to reintroduce wildlife to once-toxic locales? Then do we have the game for you. I have written before about how good – and inexplicably quiet – Netflix is with its gaming offers. The streaming giant has been moving into the gaming space at quite a pace lately, making killer adaptations and spin-offs for The Witcher, Cyberpunk, League of Legends, Castlevania, Tekken, and many more besides. But it seems that most people (well, 1% of the company’s 200 million users) aren’t aware of the incredible games that you have access…

Dune’s Oscar-nominated screenwriter is penning Netflix’s Gears Of War film

Netflix’s take on chonky soldiers vs. equally chonky underground aliens is, excuse me, gearing up. Last November, the streaming service announced plans to adapt Gears Of War’s chainsaw-swinging into an animated series and a live-action film. The latter has now tapped a writer. Jon Spaihts is the Oscar-nominated screenwriter behind Dune, Prometheus, and Doctor Strange, and he’s now writing the Gears Of War film, Netflix announced today. Read more

Stranger Things Actor Says She’s Streaming On Twitch More Due To Industry Sexual Harassment

The Pokemon Concierge is a charming new stop-motion Netflix series

It comes from the equally charming studio behind Rilakkuma and Kaoru. The Pokemon Company and Netflix are coming together to develop a stop-motion series, as well as other unannounced projects.

Sonic Prime’s latest trailer shows the bolt from the blue hopping across dimensions

Cyborg Tails was unexpected, but is appreciated. Sonic Prime’s latest trailer shows that the blue hog is going to be spin dashing his way across multiple universes, with plenty of redesigns of fan-favorites to boot. Depending on your perspective, it’s a pretty good time to be a Sonic fan. Sure, Sonic Frontiers is far from perfect, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t a real good time anyway. The next instalment in the film franchise is only a couple of years away too, and there’s that Knuckles spin-off series. And next month, Netflix is giving us a brand new show, Sonic…

Cyberpunk 2077 Dev On The Million-Player Revival: ‘It’s F****** Good To Be Back’

Cyberpunk 2077’s launch has been one of the messiest in recent history. Praised in many initial reviews on PC, so broken on last-gen consoles it was pulled from the PlayStation Store, and then saddled with post-launch delays as players waited for promised fixes and new content. Now, nearly two years later, the ambitious open-world RPG’s fortunes have been transformed by the popular Netflix anime spin-off Edgerunners, and its lead quest designer couldn’t feel more vindicated.
