News Roundup – Sword and shield hacked, DEAD CELLS BUNDLE, and more

Welcome to the News Roundup, everyone! As per the usual for Nintendo, a lot of Pokemon news dropped this last week, from bugs to new Pokemon. Valentine’s Day saw multiple new releases aptly released on a day of love. Let’s dive in!


Pokemon Sword and Shield Hacked Pokemon

For the time being, you may want to avoid raids and surprise trading in Pokemon Sword and Shield. Hackers are releasing Pokemon not yet available in the game, and receiving them can lead to a loss of online connectivity, or worse, crashing. Nintendo, as of this writing, has not released a statement on the hacks, but better safe than sorry!


Sword and Shield New Mythical Pokemon

The latest edition of the Japanese magazine CoroCoro features a new mythical Pokemon that will be added to Sword and Shield, but in typical Pokemon fashion, we’re only getting a silhouette for now. If we were to take a guess, the Pokemon looks vaguely like a cross between a money and a bird. A fighting/flying type maybe? That’d sure be an odd mashup! This Pokemon will be revealed on Pokemon Day, aka February 27. In addition, this Pokemon will be in the upcoming Pokemon KoKo movie.

Dead Cells: Prisoner’s Edition

If you’re a super-fan of Dead Cells, then this is the bundle for you, if you can wait until June 23 and have the $109.99. The Dead Cells: Prisoner’s Edition is chock full of physical goodies. The Prisoner themselves comes in the bundle as a 22cm tall figurine brandishing the Vorpan. Adorn yourself with 3 collector pin badges, trick out your possessions with 4 metallic sticks, and cover your wall with an exclusive print art card and numbered collector’s certificate. If that wasn’t enough, have a 7″, two track orange vinyl record. And last but not leave, the Prisoner’s bundle also includes a copy of the actual game, the Action Game of the Year version to be exact. Dig right into The Bad Seed DLC with the included digital code.


New Releases

Speed Dating for Ghosts

I don’t know about you, but I’m intriged. Speed Dating for Ghosts was released, appropriately, this Valentine’s Day. It features an almost Undertale art style and a dark sense of humor. From the game’s description: “Part horror, part comedy, and kinda sorta heartbreaking, Speed Dating for Ghosts is a game like no other about finding companionship and closure in the afterlife.  “

If you love a face-full of food-based puns, you’re in luck. Snack World: The Dungeon Crawl is another Valentine’s Day release. It is a randomly generated RPG dungeon capable of being played by up to 4 players. Defeat the evil Sultan Vinegar and save the land of Tutti-Frutti!



Mario Kart Tour – Vancouver

Journey to Canada in the latest Mario Kart Tour adventure, available for a limited time. The included Tour gift this time is Morton. However, if you’re subscribed to the Gold Pass, then you’ll also have a chance to get the Snow Skimmer kart as well. The Vancouver tour ends February 25, 2020.
