Back in the day of the Wii U, it seemed that many developers weren't that excited about creating games for the platform. However Nintendo seems to have turned that narrative around with the Switch, where it appears that many developers are expressing their excitement for the console, such as Capcom.
Recently the company announced that they would be releasing the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary collection for the Switch, along with all the Mega Man X games, and also the upcoming Mega Man 11, but it seems that isn't all. According to a tweet by Dr. Serkan Toto, Capcom apparently has plans to port more games onto the Switch, some of which are titles that weren't available previously for Nintendo consoles.
If you're a fan of Capcom's Street Fighter series and would love to play all of the titles at once in one massive collection, then you'll be pleased to learn that Capcom has announced the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection, which as its name suggests collects various Street Fighter titles under a single release.
According to Capcom, this includes titles such as Street Fighter, Street Fighter II, Street Fighter II: Champion Edition, Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting, Super Street Fighter II, Super Street Fighter II: Turbo, Street Fighter Alpha, Street Fighter Alpha 2, Street Fighter Alpha 3, Street Fighter III, Street Fighter III: 2nd Impact and Street Fighter III: Third Strike.

Toshiba has unveiled what it claims is the first ever Conventional Magnetic Recording (CMR) Hard Drive (HDD) with a massive 14TB capacity. This drive, which is billed as a model for enterprise use, boasts nine disks and a helium-sealed design, 3.5in form factor, 7200rpm speed, and a 6Gbit/s SATA interface.
Toshiba announced the new drive, which is part of the new MG07ACA series, last week alongside a smaller 12TB 8-disk model. Both hard drives boast a lower operating power profile than the previously launched MG06ACA series, according to Toshiba, as well as better storage density.

Breakpoint was created a little over a year ago, with the goal of creating a studio specializing in developing sports simulations, particularly tennis simulations… hence the name!
This dedicated structure was built around talents who had worked on the Top Spin licence, starting with its director and founder. By the way, our director was the associate of the director of PAM, who created the licence.
The thing about Sony's smartphones is that while they might pack some pretty impressive hardware features and specs, the design can be a bit "boring" as they've more or less kept to the same design over the past few years, with some slight changes here and there. However that could change in 2018.
In a post by Vortex.ge (via PhoneArena), the alleged specs of the upcoming Sony flagship smartphones have been leaked. First of all we have to say that we have no idea if the photos are genuine or if they're a fake because they do look particularly clean for leaks. Secondly they could simply be fan-made renders, so do take it with a grain of salt.
Earlier this year, Nintendo announced that there would be a couple of DLCs for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The first DLC has since been released, but many were wondering about the second one and whether or not it would arrive by the end of the year. Nintendo did promise it will, and the good news is that it has.
Dubbed The Champion's Ballad, this is the second DLC that was announced for Breath of the Wild and it is currently available for gamers who have purchased it. According to Nintendo's description, "Revali, Mipha, Daruk, and Urbosa fell 100 years ago in an attempt to defend the homes they love. You must rise today. The next installment of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Expansion Pass: The Champions’ Ballad is here. The exhilarating adventure continues!"
Earlier this year it was hinted that the Bayonetta franchise could be coming to the Nintendo Switch, but save for the teaser, nothing was officially confirmed, at least until now. Nintendo Switch gamers who have been looking forward to the franchise, you'll be pleased to learn that it'll be arriving.
During The Game Awards 2017, Platinum Games announced that Bayonetta 3 is in the works and will be an exclusive to the Nintendo Switch platform, something that we're sure many gamers will appreciate. Unfortunately details about the game are scarce right now, but a teaser trailer was released.
While some might associate Street Fighter as sort of the de facto arcade-style fighting game around, there are plenty of other just as popular franchises out there. In fact Bandai Namco's Soul Calibur series is one of them, and the good news is that if you're a fan of the franchise, Soul Calibur VI has been officially announced.
It has been about 5 years since a major Soul Calibur title was released, so we're sure that many gamers out there must be pretty psyched with the latest announcement that was made during The Game Awards. The game is scheduled to be released in 2018, no specific dates mentioned, where it will arrive on the PS4, Xbox One, and the PC.
