Overwatch 2 Is Trialling Some Seriously Massive Changes

Overwatch 2 might not be out this year, and for the first time since its announcement the hero shooter wasn’t part of Blizzard’s official opening ceremony.

The Makers Of Minit Are Back With A Clever New Spin-Off

Minit took the sense of exploration and discovery from a classic Zelda and recreated it in 60-second black and white chunks. The result was fantastic, so it’s not surprising its creators are returning to that world in their latest game: Minit Fun Racer.

Nintendo’s first big release of 2021, Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury, packages together a re-release of a seven-year-old game alongside a new, yet bite-sized, adventure.
