When we saw the Honda Urban EV concept at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, we wondered how much of the butch attitude would make production. The answer is most of it. Honda unveiled the Honda E Prototype today, which is a few percent away from what the production electric vehicle — sold under a different name — will look like when it goes on sale later this year in Europe.
The illuminated badge and text displays on the concave black front won't survive to the dealer's lot because the UK's Advertising Standards Authority considers such illuminations forbidden advertisement. The front and rear headlights have gone full circle, instead of the clipped circles and rounded rectangles on the concept. The body-colored rim around the roof is gone, but a roof spoiler hangs over the backlight. The loss of the 20-inch multi-spoke wheels under kicked-out fender flares makes the biggest change in stance. The pictured proto sits on 17-inch wheels, the optional rim from the 16-inch standard. But there might be room to slide a 19-incher under there.
Nintendo has launched several mobile games to date, a very different change in pace compared to several years ago when the company was adamant about not launching games on mobile. Turns out it was a great decision because according to the latest data from Sensor Tower (via AppleInsider), Fire Emblem Heroes has made the company a lot of money.
If the data is accurate, Fire Emblem Heroes has reportedly made Nintendo a whopping $500 million to date. This makes it the most successful mobile game that Nintendo has launched so far. This is versus other Nintendo titles such as Super Mario Run which only made $68 million to date (which Nintendo had previously expressed some disappointment at), along with Dragalia Lost and Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp which made $74 million and $70 million respectively.
#CES2019 – At CES 2019 we’ve seen quite a number of interesting TVs from your usual suspects, such as LG who announced that their rollable TV will be launching this year, and Samsung who took the wraps off a monstrous 98-inch 8K QLED TV. Now it looks like Panasonic has some TV announcements of its own in the form of the GZ2000.
Now the GZ2000 is not the biggest TV announced at CES and is offered at 55-inch and 65-inch models. It doesn’t feature a flexible/rollable display either. It also seems to be using OLED versus other companies who are pushing QLED. However this is a TV that Panasonic is calling the “world’s most cinematic TV” thanks to Panasonic’s work with Stefan Sonnenfeld, a leading colorist who has worked with many filmmakers in the past.
