At the start of December, the Taiwan video game ratings board classified an as-yet-unannounced new entry to the dormant draw-em-up franchise, Scribblenauts, which is apparently being developed for PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
Well, further reasons have been unearthed to dust off your crayon box, as Play-Asia now have a pre-order page up for the Switch release of the mysterious Scribblenauts Showdown, with a scheduled European release date of March 9, priced at £34.
Despite all of these pretty snug signs, there has still been zero official word from publishers Warner Bros. or developers 5th Cell, on any such title being even developed, let alone ready for pre-order. We will keep you updated should any further news be forthcoming.

Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition was announced during Nintendo's mini-direct yesterday, but not much else was talked about. A vague Spring release window could mean anything, with a release coming as late as June. According to Nintendo Hong Kong, though, we won't have much longer to wait.
As seen on this press release from the Hong Kong branch, Hyrule Warriors' Switch port will be available on March 22, 2018. It will also contain a Traditional and Simplified Chinese translation, which is pretty good news for that region of Asia. While this doesn't necessarily mean a worldwide release is in order, it would be very odd for a Zelda game to release in China before the US.
For a long time, Nintendo games typically launched in Japan first, but the Zelda series shifted gears towards the West with the release of Twilight Princess in 2006. Every subsequent game, apart from Breath of the Wild, has released in the West first (Breath was the first worldwide release for the series). My money is on Hyrule Warriors coming out in March worldwide based on this.
Late last year, Kansas resident Andrew Finch was killed by Wichita police when a frivolous 911 call was made stating that there was a hostage situation at the address of Finch's mother. Broadly, this act is known as "swatting" -- a reprehensible way of seeking online revenge by getting a SWAT team sent to someone's house.
This particular incident reportedly stemmed from a dispute over a low-stakes Call of Duty match, and Finch's mother's residence seems to be a random nearby address to one of the parties involved in the game. Here's a comprehensive write-up that details exactly how a tragedy like this could unfold.
In the days following Finch's murder, Los Angeles resident Tyler Rai Barriss was arrested and extradited to Kansas in connection with the crime. Bariss is the one who allegedly made the phone call to the Wichita police. As the LA Times reports, Bariss was charged in Sedgewick County court today for involuntary manslaughter, causing false alarm, and interfering with law enforcement. His bail was set at $500,000.
The involuntary manslaughter is the most severe of the charges listed. Involuntary manslaughter is generally defined as a killing that's unlawful but also unintentional. According to the Kansas Statutes Annotated (Kansas' laws enacted by its state legislature), involuntary manslaughter is listed as a felony severity level 5. Kansas prosecutes non-drug felonies based on this grid; it appears as though Bariss, if found guilty, would face a maximum of 55 months in prison on that one charge with the possibility for parole after three years.
It's still hard to believe the original Xbox controller is mounting a comeback in 2018.
Xbox designer Seamus Blackley and Hyperkin have updated "the Duke" for Xbox One and PC players who (for one reason or another) have fond memories of the gargantuan gamepad. As revealed today, the revised controller will cost $70 when it ships in March. While that isn't exactly cheap, it is cheaper than I was expecting for this sort of nostalgia purchase. It's not a total wallet buster.
So, what's different? The new Duke has an OLED screen in its center that plays the Xbox startup animation, a USB cable, and a few extra buttons, including right and left bumpers.
"I don't know a lot of brands that would rerelease an unpopular product from the past ... and [Head of Xbox Phil Spencer] I think correctly understands that it sends a message," Blackley told CNET. "He understands that it sends a message about how serious Xbox is about its heritage, and about the fans."
After the surprise announcement of Dark Souls Remastered from Nintendo's mini-direct yesterday, a lot of speculation started about what this new version of From Software's masterpiece would entail. Dark Souls theorist VaatiVidya had claimed that this new port would be using engine assets from Dark Souls 3 and would contain HDR lighting and some PS4 Pro enhancements.
Turns out that information was false. Vaati has already apologized on Twitter, but it looks like there won't be any brand new assets or even HDR support for this remastered version. That doesn't mean a change in game engine is out of the question, but this will look pretty similar to the version of Dark Souls we already know.
Holiday sales during November and December increased 5.5 percent over the same period in 2016 to $691.9 billion as growing wages, stronger employment, and higher confidence led consumers to spend more than had been expected, the National Retail Federation said today. The number, which excludes restaurants, automobile dealers, and gasoline stations, includes $138.4 billion in […]
MGA Entertainment, Inc. (MGAE) was granted a preliminary injunction against 79 counterfeiters that are being sued for making fake L.O.L. Surprise! toys. The preliminary injunction continues without change to a previously granted temporary restraining order that enjoined all defendants from selling L.O.L. Surprise! counterfeit products on any digital marketplace, and further froze their bank accounts. […]
A 20-year-old Florida man claimed the $451 million Mega Millions jackpot on Friday, choosing to get $282 million at once instead of more in annual installments. A Florida Lottery news release said Friday ...
Yeah...not that football. Funko has announced that the Premier League is coming to Pop! The Pop! Football Series 1 will include some of the biggest names from the Premier League - specifically Liverpool FC, Chelsea FC, and Manchester United.
The Mega Millions lottery reached its fourth-largest jackpot in history last week at $450 million. The sole winner is 20-year-old Shane Missler, who announced his win on Facebook with three words: "Oh. Missler is a Florida resident and is taking the lump sum of nearly $282 million.

The new 2DS XL is a pretty sleek console in general, but this Pikachu edition has me thinking about throwing my perfectly functional 3DS XL in the garbage.
Rest easy, this gorgeous-looking handheld isn't some Japan exclusive. It's launching in America on January 26 where it'll retail for $159.99.
Heres some shocking news, the New Nintendo #2DSXL Pikachu Edition arrives 1/26! This eyecatching yellow design features a stylized close-up of Pikachus face. https://t.co/fh0Tki7SzG pic.twitter.com/6yVcqEbvuf— Nintendo of America (@NintendoAmerica) January 12, 2018

I don't know that I'd want to immortalize my fear with an extravagant statue, but this Dragon Slayer Ornstein statue from First 4 Figures is a sight to behold. I particularly like the detailing on the base.
The statue is a whopping 26.5" tall and comes in a regular and exclusive edition, the latter of which has LED-lit lightning effects on the Dragonslayer Spear as well as an art print. Both statues cost $600 and are targeting a Q4 2018 release. Pre-orders are currently open at First 4 Figures.
The timing here is great, what with Dark Souls fresh on our minds thanks to the upcoming remaster for PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. It's been a while since I've played the original, so I'm partially excited to relive the adventure and partially dreading certain moments. Bring it, Ornstein.
Are you sick of EA's Battlefront II and want an actually good Star Wars multiplayer shooter to play? Well, the upcoming Star Wars: Rivals probably isn't for you, but that isn't going to stop Disney from trying. Soft launched last June in Australia and New Zealand, Rivals will soon be available for download from the Google Play and iOS App Stores. You can pre-register to get in on the action the second it is available.
The gameplay is apparently more Overwatch and less Battlefront, so at least you'll be able to play as iconic Star Wars characters from the get go. That means no crazy microtransactions to unlock Darth Vader, though you can happily part with $99.99 to get something in-game.
[Extremely Freddie Mercury voice] I've paid my dues
Time after time.
I've done my sentence
But committed no crime.
And bad mistakes ‒
I've made a few.
I've had my share of sand kicked in my face
But I've come through.
(And I need just go on and on, and on, and on)
We are the champions, my friends,
And we'll keep on fighting 'til the end.
We are the champions.
We are the champions.
No time for losers
'Cause we are the champions of the world.
