On July 21st you’ll be able to download a limited verison of the Nintendo Switch Online app for both iOS and Android. It’ll work with Splatoon 2 and feature things like SplatNet2 and of course Voice Chat services. It’ll let you invite friends, look at game features, etc. This app will be free until it launches in early 2018.
Prepare for Platinum. The hardest mode from Mass Effect 3’s multiplayer is now returning to Mass Effect Andromeda. It also appears that the Batarians are going to be making a return as well. Of course this multiplayer update will be completely free which is great. No word on singleplayer DLC yet, and I wanted to say that our site has not covered the story that is running about. The story that says the DLC is cancelled, which I can’t comment on, but there seems to be many misconceptions and we don’t want to report “fake news.”
The UK version of the eShop store has given us a look at how big the file size for Splatoon 2 is going to be. It appears it’ll be about 3.1 GB which is a bit smaller than I expected. It appears Nintendo has mastered compression with their titles. Splatoon 2 comes out on July 21st only on Nintendo Switch.
KOEI TECMO has announced a standalone sequel to the Night of Azure, Night of Azure 2: Bride of the New Moon. The game will be coming to PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Steam. It’ll release in the west on October 24th 2017.
Here is KOEI TECMO’s description of the title below.
“Nights of Azure 2: Bride of the New Moon takes place in a fictional, demon-ridden Western European city towards the end of the 19th century. The story focuses on a knight protector named Alushe and her two childhood friends Liliana, a kind-hearted priestess, and Ruhenheid, a holy knight of the Lourdes Order. While guarding Liliana, Alushe is ambushed and killed only to later awaken as an artificial half-demon at the hands of the New Curia, a religious organization with dark ties. In the company of a variety of unlikely allies with their own pasts and agendas, Alushes strong desire to save Liliana gives her the strength to scatter the shadows shrouding the world and motivation to uncover the shocking truth behind the mysterious Queen of the Moon.”
Stay tuned for more news on Nights of Azure 2 in the coming months, and everything KOEI TECMO here at RealGamerNewz. Real news, for real gamers.
“KOEI TECMO Europe is excited to reveal today the upcoming western release of developer Omega Force’s latest one-versus-thousand action title and celebration of everything KOEI TECMO, Warriors All-Stars. Bringing together many of KOEI TECMO Games’ most beloved characters for an all-new Warriors style experience, Warriors All-Stars is headed to PS4 and digitally on PC via Steam on 1st September 2017.”
Player Unknowns Battlegrounds has gotten a new tease at one of the upcoming maps. This one is the desert map, it seems to be going with more a western United States approach instead of the middle eastern desert. The other map we know they are making is a winter snow map which is the one I am greatly interested in.

A Dutch PR company recently confirmed that they would be handling the PR for Dragon Quest 11 in the west. They did not mention a release date, platforms, or anything, just the fact it’s coming. Dragon Quest XI is coming to Japan on July 29th for the PlayStation 4, and Nintendo 3ds family of systems.
The Arcade Fighter Gundam Versus will be hitting the west on September 29th, only on the PlayStation 4. It’ll have plenty of mechs to control, plenty of modes to play. and tons of 2v2 fighting to take part in. Gundam Versus has everything a fan of the series could ask for, and even offers something to the everyday gamer. I personally can’t wait to play the online battle royale.

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.
