As we have seen, Epic Games has been sued before by various rappers over their dance moves, this time around a famous saxophone player named Leo Pellegrino.

According to The Verge, the lawsuit Pellegrino and the Pierce Bainbridge Beck Price & Hecht LLP law firm are pursuing and stated the legal action partain with "Phone It In" emote. Some folks might be wondering who Pellegrino is, he is the saxophone player for the group Too Many Zooz and the video below will explain who he is as well.

According to The Verge comment, the law firm said Pellegrino uses “outward pointing feet” when playing the saxophone and that the performer is “duck-footed” which leads to the unique shows Pellegrino puts on. Have a look at another video below and If you think they’re similar, you aren’t alone, we thought the same.

  • Nintendo Switch Pro & Lite Version USB-PD

As the day goes, more interesting news comes up, concerning the upcoming Nintendo Switch models coming in 2019.

Nintendo has put up a job listing looking for a power supply designer with expertise in USB-PD (USB Power Delivery). What makes this job listing so interesting is the fact Nintendo is looking for someone with experience with USB-PD, as the company has never released any device that supports USB-PD.

Currently, the Nintendo Switch supports USB-C, which allows the Switch to transfer information at a fast speed. With USB-PD, devices will be able to charge faster and the data transfer rate will increase.

So this job listing hints Nintendo Switch Pro and Switch Lite devices might support USB-PD,  probably these are the consoles nintendo will be releasing soon.

  • A Report Stated That Another Nintendo Direct Is Coming In April 2019
  • Is Nintendo Direct Coming Next Month?

It all started with the  announcement that shows up early this year that stated the direct will come in January but turns out to be fake

Finally the Direct was aired in February. A rumor stated that the next direct is round the corner, sooner than we expected.

Sabi, who previously reported on various Persona rumors, claims that the Spring 2019 Nintendo Direct will be aired in April 2019. Sabi says this information comes from the same source that told them about the Pokemon Sword and Shield starter reveal on February 27. However, it’s important to keep in mind the information comes from the source that has heard from another brand ambassador.

As usual take all rumors with a grain of salt. For now we’ll have to wait and see what happens next. It wouldn’t be unusual to see a Nintendo Direct in April, as we don’t know much about Nintendo’s upcoming games coming this summer.

  • Rumor: Monster Hunter For Nintendo Switch Will Arrive In 2020 According To King Zell
  • Monster Hunter 2020 Nintendo Switch Launch

King Zell a prominent leaker who hinted multiple third party AAA titles for Switch, hints that a new Monster Hunter title will be revealed in March 2019.

This has been a talk of the town on various Japanese message boards. This ties into King Zell’s latest comments on ResetERA and something Capcom put out recently. He said, one of the games that’s about to be revealed later this month was “hinted but not fully revealed”. He claimed that this game is scheduled to release in Winter 2019 or Q1 2020.

“Just to be clear, one of the games that i was talking about being revealed in March got hinted and not fully revealed. I think its a winter 2019/ Q1 2020 game so it should be fully revealed on a later date”

This month, Capcom celebrated the 15th anniversary of the Monster Hunter franchise. On the official 15th anniversary website, there was a message card from the game’s developers, and it contained a secret hint – the word “NEXT”.

Folks believes that the follow up to Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate, or Monster Hunter XX in Japan, would be called Monster Hunter NX or Monster Hunter NEXT. Also keep in mind that NX was the codename for Nintendo Switch. Take this with a grain of salt until Capcom officially announces the next Monster Hunter entry, till then, but now is a rumor.
