  • 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.

Grandpa Chen is really catching a whole bunch of Pocket Monsters right infront of his bike.

  • 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.

  • Kotick & Wilson Appears In The List Of 100 Most Overpaid CEOs

As You Sow dedicated to promoting corporate accountability, has published its annual list of top 100 “Most Overpaid CEOs,” which includes Activision Blizzard’s Bobby Kotick and Electronic Arts’ Andrew Wilson.
As You Sow has been publishing this report since 2015, taking a number of factors into consideration when populating the list. As part of its methodology, the organization looks at excess CEO pay in relation to total shareholder return, shareholders’ votes against CEO compensation packages, median employee pay, and more. You can find a detailed write up on the methodology on As You Sow’s website but to cut to the chase, Kotick appears at no. 45 and Wilson appears at no. 98.

Looking at the figures closely, Kotick is paid $28,698,375 – an excess of $12,835,277 by As You Sow’s calculations. The ratio of Kotick’s pay to median worker pay at Activision Blizzard is 306:1. Interestingly, Kotick’s compensation package received 92 percent approval votes.

Wilson earns $35,728,764 per annum – an excess of $19,673,861 per As You Sow’s calculations. The CEO to worker pay ratio at EA is 371:1, with Wilson’s pay receiving 97 percent approval votes.

The report reveals that an increasing amount of shareholders are now opposing extortionate compensation packages but CEO pays continue to increase overall.

Opposition to high CEO pay has risen, and more companies have seen their CEO pay packages receive less and less support from their shareholders,” note!. “European funds and U.S. public pension funds have made their opposition to a broken system clear.


Xbox Game Pass and App Coming To Nintendo Switch This Year

  • Xbox Game Pass and App Coming To Nintendo Switch This Year
  • Xbox Game Pass And Apps Coming On Switch

According to a new rumor, Microsoft and Nintendo are teaming up in a big way in 2019.

As you may know, the past week or so there's been rumblings that Microsoft and Nintendo have some big plans for 2019 that include working together. However, specifics on what these plans could entail, haven't really surfaced.

That said, according to Direct-Feed Games which cites multiple inside sources Microsoft is getting ready to release an Xbox App on Nintendo Switch and also bring Xbox Game Pass to the system via its new streaming technology Project Xcloud.

Further, Microsoft also will apparently start publishing some of its first-party titles directly onto the Switch. More specifically, the games that the system can run natively and that make sense to be on the platform.

It's possible though, and when you consider that there's already some type of precedent set with Microsoft releasing Minecraft onto the Switch, the rumor sounds legit

Lastly, there's been multiple reputable sources claiming that Microsoft and Nintendo have some big plans together for this year.

Nintendo Teases 'Bayonetta 3' Will Come To Nintendo Switch "Sooner Than Anticipated"

No comments

  • Nintendo Teases 'Bayonetta 3' Will Come To Nintendo Switch "Sooner Than Anticipated"
  • Bayonetta 3 Release Date
  • Bayonetta 3 Nintendo Switch Release

After Nintendo announced Bayonetta 3 for the Nintendo Switch back in 2017 at The Game Awards, we haven't heard any word about it all the while. 

In fact, many people believe the title is still a ways off, and most likely coming in 2020. However, a new tease from Nintendo suggests that the highly-anticipated Switch exclusive may be coming sooner than we expected, possibly even this year.

In the official Nintendo Power podcast, Nintendo of America's senior product marketing manager Bill Trinen, eventually found himself talking about PlatinumGames and its partnership with Nintendo over the years. And while talking about this topic, Trinen seemingly suggests Bayonetta 3 will be releasing this year.

This is what I think is so great about the partnership between Nintendo and Platinum Games, said Trinen speaking about the recently announced Astral Chain, another Switch joint from PlatinumGames. "Because to me, I look at Astral Chain and I see the kind of intense action game that historically you haven’t seen a lot of on Nintendo platforms. With this collaboration with PlatinumGames, being able to bring stuff like that… and knowing that they mentioned, of course, Bayonetta 3, "which is" still in the works, it really helps to round out the library overall of what’s available on Switch.

“And of course, that’s another game that’s maybe coming a little bit sooner than people anticipated, later this year." As you could see, Trinen seems to suggest Bayonetta 3 will be out this year, which would be much earlier than most expected it to hit.

That said, I wouldn't cross my fingers too hard here. Even if what Trinen is implying is the case, it's always possible the title gets delayed, and without a release window even announced, it makes it very easy for Nintendo to push back the title if it thinks it needs more time.

But come to think of it, if it was going to release this year, don't you think Nintendo would have showcased it during the recent Direct? Or are they going to reveal it at E3 this year? Tell us what you think in the comments below.
