Returnal is Getting A New Update
We’ll kick this off with the company’s latest State of Play presentation, which included a number of Japanese-developed games that were fun to see. Returnal’s free Expansion release this month will probably be the most talked-about of all the noteworthy games announced. Story co-op and a novel survival option are both included in the “Ascension” expansion, which pits Selene against the Tower of Sisyphus, a fitting moniker if you’re familiar with Greek mythology.
Nintendo Delays Advance Wars
Unlike many other publications, The Super Mario developer appears to be paying close attention to the unfolding crisis in Ukraine as well as is trying all it may avoid coming out as callous. This is since Nintendo has put off the remastering of Advance Wars for an indefinite period since releasing a title about invading imaginary nations when another nation is getting attacked every day, wouldn’t be a good idea, to say the least.
Sony Cut Ties With Russia
As a gesture of solidarity with the Ukrainian people, videogame companies from around the world have pulled their goods from the country. With Sony’s announcement that all services and device transactions would be halted and also that all the stores in the nation will be closing down, the company has joined the list of publishers taking similar measures.
