From Chart-Track you find the recently remade trilogy of Crash Bandicoot sitting at the top. Showing their is still a huge audience for this style of game. I am happy that it has sold well, and we should have our review up soon so stay tuned for that.
Five Nights at Freddy’s 6 has been officially cancelled, after only recently entering development. Scott Cawthan, the creator of the series, makes his statement below.
“For the last month or so I’ve been dropping hints about a new game; and it’s true that I’d been working on one (call it FNaF 6 if you’d like.) But after forcing myself to keep working on it day after day, I realized something- I just don’t want to work on this,” he wrote. “With each game’s release, I think the expectations get higher and higher for the next, and rightfully so. Each game SHOULD be better than the last! But that pressure starts to mount, and I fear that I’ve been neglecting other things in my life for the sake of trying to keep up with those mounting expectations.
“So, after giving this a lot of thought; I’ve decided that I’m going to stop working on it. I’m not going to reveal anything else about what the game was, and I’ve asked other people involved to never divulge anything either. It’s just not going to be talked about.”
He explained that he wants “to get back to what made game-making enjoyable in the first place.”
“In fact, the first game that I’d like to make would be something for you guys. Remember Foxy Fighters from Update 2? I loved working on that game,” he explains. “It was a lot of fun, and it took a lot of the pressure off me knowing that it was just for the fans of the games. That’s the kind of project that I’d like to work on again. Maybe I’ll try my hand at a pizzeria tycoon game, who knows. The point is that it would be something for fun, and something for the fans.”
Let’s hope whatever he decides to do next is great, as the first game in the series I remember having fun with.

The demand for the Nintendo Switch is way ahead of Nintendo’s own expectations. A Nintendo UK PR Spokesperson stated below.
“For Nintendo Switch, our initial plan for the fiscal year ended March 2017 was to ship two million units by the end of March, but we increased production which resulted in shipping 2.74 million units globally.
To take advantage of this favorable momentum, we will continue to bolster our manufacturing facilities and strive to increase production in preparation for the Christmas period, which has been factored into our forecast of shipping 10 million units globally by the end of this fiscal year.”
Splatoon 2 Pre-Orders in Japan have sky rocketed through the rough. With 800K stand alone copies of the game being pre-ordered there. This is not counting worldwide sales, or even the Switch and Spaltoon 2 Bundles in Japan. It seems that Nintendo has a huge title on their hands that has generated a lot of positive buzz. You can find the figures on COMG to see how it compares sales wise.
Splatoon 2 has approximately 800k preorders in Japan (maybe more, maybe less). In a single day should be top selling Switch game in Japan.
“Kazuma Kiryu, the Dragon of Dojima (and the main protagonist of SEGA’s long-running Yakuza franchise) will find out exactly how much people are willing to sacrifice for family – be those ties through blood or bond – when Yakuza 6: The Song of Life releases in the West. The game is coming to consoles only on PlayStation 4, and thanks to the new “Dragon Engine,” is the most advanced Yakuza title to date. From the unparalleled realism of the new setting of Onomichi, a beautiful, sleepy port town in Hiroshima Prefecture, to the latest evolution of Kamurocho, the biggest red light district in Tokyo, Yakuza 6 is the ultimate iteration the game’s blend of gritty crime story, hyper-explosive combat, and all the vices and distractions those locales have to offer. Yakuza 6: The Song of Life will be localized by SEGA and published in the Americas and Europe in physical and digital formats in early 2018.”
