EA Satisfied With FIFA Switch Sales Says Nintendo

According to Nintendo France, EA is “satisfied” with the sales performance of FIFA 18 on the Switch console.

Philippe Lavoué – general manager of Nintendo France – said that FIFA 18 on the Switch was a “test match” for EA, which is satisfied with the result.

The game has sold 73,000 physical units in France, and Lavoué expects the game to sell twice that amount with the upcoming World Cup in Russia.

FIFA 18 is the second instalment in the series to use the Frostbite 3 game engine, although some versions of the game use a different game engine. The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions include a continuation of “The Journey” a story-based mode that was originally in FIFA 17 entitled “The Journey: Hunter Returns”. The PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions, known as FIFA 18: Legacy Edition, do not contain any new gameplay features aside from updated kits and rosters.

The console shipped nearly three million in the first month of its launch, exceeding Nintendo’s initial projection of two million, and within a year of release achieved over 14 million units sold worldwide, outselling total lifetime sales of the Wii U. It is the fastest-selling console in Nintendo’s history, and is the fastest-selling console of all time in Japan and the United States.

Nintendo Switch sales were highly tied to the critically acclaimed titles The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey, which became best-sellers for the system, with over six million and nine million copies sold respectively by the end of 2017.

The Devil May Cry HD Collection will be released on PS4, Xbox One, and PC giving new fans an updated taste of the popular franchise.

Capcom announced on its blog recently that all subscribers of Amazon Prime and Twitch Prime will be eligible to download the original Devil May Cry from February 27, after which you’ll be able to download the game via the Twitch desktop app.

Devil May Cry is a hack and slash video game series developed by Capcom and created by Hideki Kamiya. Originally intended to be a sequel in Capcom’s Resident Evil series, in development it became such a radical departure from the series’ style that it was developed into a new property entirely.

The series centers on the main character Dante’s goal of avenging his mother’s murder by exterminating demons. The gameplay consists of heavy combat scenes in which the player must attempt to extend long chains of attacks while avoiding damage in order to exhibit stylized combat; this element along with time and the number of items collected and used are taken under consideration when grading the player’s performance.

The series has been a success with the first three games selling multiple million copies and being awarded the “Platinum Title” award by Capcom and the series has sold more than ten million copies worldwide.

The Evil Within 2 Update Adds First-Person Mode

The Evil Within 2 will now let you play through the entire game in first-person mode.

Published

The Evil Within 2 will now let you play through the entire game in first-person with a new update release. The first-person mode is optional and can be activatedethrough the in-game menu on PS4, Xbox One and PC.

“A lot of players like playing horror games in first-person, so for those who want to see some of the game’s situations through Sebastian’s eyes, it’s a really neat experience,” said Tango Gameworks producer Shinsaku Ohara. “I think exploring Union in first-person makes the scale feel even bigger than it does when you’re in third-person. Also, being able to see our environments and enemies up close allows players to get an even better look at how much effort went into their designs.”

The Evil Within 2 is a third-person survival horror video game developed by Tango Gameworks and published by Bethesda Softworks for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game was released worldwide in October 2017, and is the sequel to the 2014 video game The Evil Within.

The game received generally positive reviews; like its predecessor, it received praise for its visuals, atmosphere, and gameplay but received some criticism for its story and characters.

The game takes place three years after the events at Beacon Mental Hospital, Sebastian Castellanos has left the Krimson City Police Department to uncover the truth about the mysterious organization MOBIUS.

Similar to its predecessor, the game is a survival horror game. Played from a third-person perspective, the player assumes control of detective Sebastian Castellanos, who must descend into the world of Union to rescue his daughter, Lily. There are three difficulty modes, namely Casual, which producer Shinji Mikami recommends, Survival, and Nightmare, the latter setting being recommended for players who enjoyed the difficulty curve in the previous game.

The game came in second place each for “Best Publisher” with Bethesda Softworks and for “Best Horror Game” at the Global Game Awards 2017; and was nominated for “Best Action Game” in PC Gamer’s 2017 Game of the Year Awards.

Spyro The Dragon PS4 Remaster Coming This Year

Sources told Kotaku have indicated that the original Spyro trilogy–Spyro the Dragon, Ripto’s Rageand Year of the Dragon–is being remastered by Activision.

Spyro the Dragon is a platform video game developed by Insomniac Games and published by Sony Computer Entertainment. The game was released for the PlayStation in September 1998. It stars the title character, a young purple dragon named Spyro, and his dragonfly friend, Sparx, and is the first game in the Spyro the Dragon series.

Spyro the Dragon received positive reviews from critics, who praised the game for its graphics and high replay value. The game was also a commercial success, selling nearly 5 million copies worldwide. Two sequels, titled Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage! and Spyro: Year of the Dragon, were later released for the PlayStation in 1999 and 2000, respectively.

The game consists of several different worlds, which are divided into various realms accessed by finding their gates. In order to progress to the next hub world, the player needs to fulfil the goal required by the balloonist in each world, such as a certain amount of treasure, rescued dragons, or dragon eggs.

Most worlds contain dragons encased in stone, which can be rescued by touching them. Some of these dragons offer hints, and their platforms can be used to save the game. Eggs are in the possession of speedy blue thieves that must be chased down and defeated in order to recover them. In order to beat the game, the player must travel to the final homeworld, enter Gnasty Gnorc’s lair, and defeat him.

Upon Gnasty’s defeat the player is presented with a closing cinematic and credits, then the player may now go to all worlds and realms in order to obtain each gem, egg, and release each dragon. Upon achieving 100% completion, the player can access a bonus level: Gnasty’s Loot.
