In the last Nintendo Direct, which was all about Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, game director Masahiro Sakurai said that there’s still one more game mode that he can’t talk about yet. Fans think they’ve figured out what it’s called, but they still don’t know what it actually is. I’ve got a few ideas.

Dead Cells is a really good video game, and is a perfect fit for the handheld Nintendo Switch. However, the Switch version performs noticeably under 60 frames-per-second, which makes for a less smooth experience than on other gaming systems.

It's not every day you get assigned to write an article about how your boss is completely wrong, but this morning during one of our many discussions about the fantastic game Hollow Knight, Kotaku editor-in-chief Stephen Totilo told me to write [Editor's note: suggested you write] about how wrong he is about the nails-tough platforming sections.
