Forget The Past, Nintendo's Future Is Focused On New IP And "Staple Series"
Resurrecting forgotten franchises does not appear to be a priority. Would you like to see Nintendo revive some of its older and perhaps lesser-known IPs for the Switch generation? Well, if Shuntaro Furukawa's latest comments are anything to go by, it's probably best not to get your hopes up. During an interview with Nikkei earlier this week, the Nintendo president explained how much of the company's current focus was on "new ideas" and what's next (aka the future).

Video: 10 Times Nintendo Characters Appeared In Third-Party Games
Peach Panda will never be forgotten. Nintendo has historically been rather careful with whom they lend out their characters and properties, which is why the likes of Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle and Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the NecroDancer Featuring The Legend of Zelda are such a recent breath of fresh air. That's not to say there were instances in the past where Nintendo's characters were used – or at least referenced – in third party games, which is handy because we made a whole video about it; if there were no examples it'd be quite a short and dull affair.

Deliciously sinister Rusty Lake series unveils time-travelling co-op puzzler The Past Within
Developer Rusty Lake has unveiled the latest entry in its deliciously off-kilter series of point-and-click puzzlers and it sounds the studio's most ambitious endeavour yet, taking the form of time-travelling co-op adventure The Past Within. If you've not yet had the pleasure of Rusty Lake's surreal, centuries-spanning narrative, it currently worms its way through 15 games - six are fully fledged premium offerings (Rusty Lake Hotel, Paradise, Paradox, The White Door, series precursor Samsara Room, and the exquisite Roots), while the remaining nine are comparatively smaller companion pieces, falling under the Cube Escape banner. All are relatively simple things at their core - casual puzzlers featuring streamlined point-and-click mechanics with a room escape slant - but it's the darkly surreal theatricality of it all that really makes the series sing.

No, Konami Isn't Exiting The Video Game Business
"We have not 'shut down' our video gaming division". While video games seem to be fairly resilient to the effects of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, that hasn't stopped some companies from taking a good, hard look at how they operate – one of which is Japanese giant Konami, the firm behind titles like Castlevania, Metal Gear Solid, Pro Evolution Soccer and current Japanese chart-topper Momotaro Dentetsu: Showa, Heisei, Reiwa mo Teiban!, which we spoke about recently. It's long been argued by hardcore fans that Konami's glory days are in the past, and it's certainly true that the firm has released fewer AAA titles in recent years; it is heavily invested in health centres and also has pachinko and amusement businesses, and these sectors have proved to be very successful of late (well, pre-COVID, at any rate).
