The Cube-Daily News Update: 7/27/16
We likely won’t hear about a story as big as the NX leak for quite a while, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t anything worthwhile to read or hear about. Here are your essential stories for Wednesday, July 27th 2016.
Nintendo’s Pokemon Go accessory has been delayed:
Nintendo has announced on Twitter that Pokemon Go PLUS will not be launching in late July, and instead sometime in September. They offered no official reasoning or statements besides for a link that redirected to no new outbursts of info, but we suspect this might have to do with the fact that the game in question needs more polishing first. (Three step glitch, anyone?)
Nintendo’s new earnings report is a bit worrying:
Nintendo has stated that their loss for their recent quarter is bigger than expected (by about 1 million Yen). They blamed it on the yen being lower than usual, and sluggish hardware sales. Thankfully, they’ve stated Pokemon Go and their upcoming products (like the mini NES) will jump the company up 37%.
The Playstation Plus August titles have been announced:
There are really good months for free services, and other times there are really bad ones. It seems like Playstation 4 users may have gotten the short end of the stick this time, as the indie titles Rebel Galaxy and Tricky Towers are being offered. (Plus the crossbuy Ultratron) That isn’t to say these games are bad, but on top of a Playstation 3 game that’s already been offered (Retro/Grade), it’s a definite downgrade. At least PS3 owners are getting Yakuza 5 as well.
New information for Prey has been revealed:
Bethesda has released a rather late post-E3 video talking about Prey, and while it doesn’t offer any new footage, there is some info at hand. Particularly the biggest one is how you can choose as a female or male before you start the game, and more. We’ve embedded the video below if you want to get the full scoop.
Metal Gear Solid 5 may be getting a re-release:
Redditors have discovered an Amazon listing for Metal Gear Solid 5: Definitive EX. It’s supposedly set to launch sometime later this year, but besides that, there’s not much else we know. It could contain Ground Zeroes, but we suspect it might be a package with some of the online and cosmetic DLC Konami released earlier, considering how greedy they are.
