Ahoy Captain Cats here and today is another round of video game round-up so let’s go!
Since the announcement that E3 was canceled this year due to the Corona Virus, many video gaming publishers have been making the video game announcements themselves. One of these publishers that for the past few years had one of the best and at times craziest showcases during E3 is Devolver Digital. This past Friday they released a small yet mouthwatering odd tweet on their official Twitter account stating the following:
“Devolver Direct 2020 is happening but we’re not sure when due to THESE UNCERTAIN TIMES. Should be a good one though.” – Devolver Digital
I can’t wait to see what they do this year!
Earlier this year Konami was going to release the TubroGrafx-16/PC Engine originally back on March 19 of this year but was postponed due to the Corona Virus and how it was affecting the world. This past weekend it was announced that the T16 will be shipping out to retailers and people who pre-order it on Amazon in the USA on May 22 of this year, in other words, this Friday. There hasn’t been any word on when it will be released in Europe this year yet.
Lastly this past weekend EVO has made a few announcements, first and foremost this year EVO will be taking place 100% online and will be called EVO Online 2020. Second, the whole tournament will take place over 5 weekends and here are the official dates:
July 31-August 2 Final
Lastly which is a huge change is the game line-up for the online event. Here are the Main and side tournaments for this year EVO Online 2020:
Under Night In-Birth Exe: Late[cl-r]
Dragon Ball Fighter Z
Street Fighter V Champion Edition
Granblue Fantasy: Versus
Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath
Killer Instinct (2013 version)
Them’s Fighting Herds
The one game that was officially off the main line-up for EVO Online 2020 was Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. No word from the organization on why they cut Smash Bros.
There you go that’s your video game news round up!
