Xperia XZ2/XZ3 family gets November 2019 security patches; Xperia 1 with October patches

Sony Mobile has updated a few handsets in recent weeks. First off, the current flagship, the Xperia 1, has seen its firmware update move to build number 55.0.A.10.26.

Hori's Mario Kart Racing Wheel Will Be Arriving Stateside This November

Hori's Mario Kart Racing Wheel Will Be Arriving Stateside This November

According to the description of the accessory, “Hori is pleased to announce the Nintendo Switch Mario Kart racing wheel Pro. The racing wheel is ideal for the Mario Kart and racing gamer. The ergonomic wheel design, pedals, and convenient on-board controls were built to create an authentic racing simulation. Officially licensed by Nintendo.”

While the controller seems to suggest that it is for Mario Kart, Hori notes that it will be usable with other racing games as well, so you should be able to use it with more than just one game. While Hori is not the only company to release a steering wheel controller for the Switch, it does come with some added accessories like pedals that will make the game feel a bit more realistic.

Doom 64 Will Be Coming To The Nintendo Switch This November

DOOM 64 Will Be Coming To The Nintendo Switch This November

If you love playing old and classic video games, Nintendo and Bethesda might have some news that could make you very happy. In a tweet by the official DOOM account, it has been revealed that DOOM 64 will be launching on the Nintendo Switch console this coming November, or to be more specific, the 22nd of November.

In case you’re not familiar with DOOM 64, this is a title that was originally released back in 1997 where in case the name already did not give it away, was a version of Doom that was launched for the Nintendo 64 console. It was not a port of the game, but rather a sequel. It has been about 22 years since (we wonder if this might be the reason behind the 22nd of November date) so if you’re looking to relive a classic, then you’ll want to keep an eye out for it.
