Nintendo surprised the world this morning by launching a Nintendo Direct Mini this morning that came with plenty of fantastic surprises. For DLC, Super Mario Odyssey is getting Luigi’s Balloon World and a few new costumes. Pokken Tournament DX is receiving two new Battle Packs.
For new games, though, Nintendo brought out a few surprises. My personal favorite is the shocking re-release of The World Ends With You: Final Remix. They also announced Mario Tennis Aces, PayDay 2, Dark Souls: Remastered, and more. Check out the Direct Mini above for a full look.

Square Enix announced at GamesCom, that Final Fantasy XV is headed to iOS, Android, and Windows 10 Mobile Devices with its new Pocket Edition. The new edition will be released episodically across mobile platforms to accommodate the large story, and even gets this adorable new art style.
The new art style is a bit off-putting at first, with some proportions and face design being a bit strange on certain characters (looking at you, Gladiolus). But after a bit, it has a charm to it, and I’m already pretty fond of it. There’s no release date as of yet, but hopefully it won’t be long before we can see how well Final Fantasy XV transitions to touch screens.

The Secret World has long been one of most ripe properties in video games, with its incredible blending of mythology and lore. The fight between the Templars, the Illuminati, and the Dragons has ravaged on for centuries, with a war of supernatural abilities tipping the scales back and forth.
Now, that incredible story is being developed for television. It will be produced by Johnny Depp, Christi Dembrowski, Sam Sarkar and Gudrun Giddings alongside Showrunner Pam Veasey. Giddings and Sarkar optioned the rights to The Secret World media back in 2012. The pilot is being written by James V. Hart, who is best known as the co-writer of Hook, with Robin Williams.
Square Enix has shared a new character introduction trailer for Fortune Street: Dragon Quest & Final Fantasy 30th Anniversary, and the new trailer debuts Final Fantasy VIII hero, Squall. In the video above, Squall is shown saying “I don’t fear expensive shops. You just simply have to not stop at one.” He then promptly lands on one, being forced to pay 1,750G to Lightning, to which he says “I’m going to destroy this expensive shop.”

You’d be forgiven for having never heard of Itadaki Street before. The wonderfully charming and original concept takes popular Square Enix characters from Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest, and places them in a Monopoly-style board game. The character designs are wonderful, and the game is incredibly fun.
Fortunately, Square Enix knows that also! During their recent live-stream, Itadaki Street: Dragon Quest and Final Fantasy 30th Anniversary was announced for PlayStation 4 and PS VITA. The game is set to release in October in Japan.
Over the weekend, Square Enix hosted a massive live-stream with a slew of news for fans of the Dragon Quest franchise. The biggest piece of news being that the much-lauded Dragon Quest Builders 2 is coming to the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4. Builders is a game that takes the Minecraft formula and gives it a charming story, with a Dragon Quest backdrop.
The new release also adds underwater diving, hang-gliding, and even local multiplayer for up to 4 players. Local multiplayer! There’s no release date set for the title, but hopefully we get a North American release.
It’s a big day for the Persona franchise, as the Persona Live Sound Bomb has been an explosion of spin-off titles for the series, which has already had a banner year. Persona Q2 has been announced by Atlus, with an official teaser website being put online featuring a Persona 5 inspired “Take Your Heart” message.
No other information is currently available, but we should expect to hear more soon. Keep an eye on Ph LEVEL, or the Official Persona Twitter account for more.
I’m a pretty big fan of Binging With Babish, it being one of the few YouTube channels I regularly follow. His amazing film-inspired recipes are fun to watch, and immensely informative if you have any interest in cooking.
The video above is his latest, and his first foray into the world of video game cooking, which features recipes from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. He starts with a campfire Mushroom Risotto, as well as Campfire Apples. The coup de grace, as it were, is an Ube Monster Cake, with Durian Frosting (pictured above) that looks fantastic, but a bit out there. Just the way I like it.
