Last year Nintendo rolled out its Nintendo Switch Online service. For those who are unfamiliar, Nintendo Switch Online is a subscription service that gamers will need in order to play their games online with each other, but now it seems that if you’re a Twitch Prime subscriber, you will be able to get a free year of Nintendo Switch Online service.
According to Twitch, “Get up to 12 months of access to Nintendo Switch Online at no extra cost. You can claim the 3-month Nintendo Switch Online access offer now, then come back to claim the 9-month individual membership when it unlocks.” Basically this means that upfront you will be able to claim 3 months of free membership, and after 60 days and assuming you’re still subscribed to Twitch Prime, you will be able to claim the remaining 9 months.
Fujifilm has several high-end mirrorless cameras, one of which is a rangefinder-style camera in the form of the X-Pro series. So far there have been two models: the X-Pro and the X-Pro2, and according to an earlier rumor by Fuji Rumors, it has been rumored that the X-Pro3 could actually be launched later this year.
Details about the camera are next to nothing at the moment, but according to the publication, they have recently received a tip from a source that claims that the X-Pro3 could actually be manufactured in Japan. For those unfamiliar, Fujifilm has taken pride at how the bulk of its cameras and lenses are made in Japan.
According to earlier rumors, Nintendo could actually be planning on launching a new Nintendo Switch console later this year. Now according to a new report from the Wall Street Journal, it seems that we might expect more than just one Nintendo Switch console this year, and that we could actually be getting two.
The report claims that Nintendo could be following a similar strategy to Microsoft’s, where there have been rumors that Microsoft could have at least two Xbox consoles in the works. One of the Switch models is rumored to be an “enhanced” model that will be aimed at more hardcore gamers, although it still won’t be as powerful compared to the PS4 Pro or the Xbox One X.
Earlier this year Canon launched the EOS RP, the more affordable version of its EOS R mirrorless lineup. Unfortunately if you were hoping to see more EOS R cameras this year, there’s a good chance that we might not see anything new this year. This is according to a report from Canon Rumors whose sources told them that there will be no new EOS R bodies being shipped out this year.
However this doesn’t mean that there won’t be any new announcements. According to the publication, they claim that there could be an off chance that Canon might announce a new camera later in the year, and that it might simply ship in early 2020 instead, but that’s just speculation so take it with a grain of salt for now.
Police in Tokyo have arrested three men on suspicion of breaking into the house of an 80-year-old woman and murdering her last month.

Rail enthusiasts have gathered in the city of Nagasaki to bid farewell to a tram that has been in service for more than 90 years.

YOKOHAMA--The Skywalk footpath beneath the Yokohama Bay Bridge will open as early as March for the first time in nine years in anticipation of increased visitors eager to watch cruise ships.

Earlier this year, Square Enix released one of their most anticipated titles in the form of Kingdom Hearts 3, but it seems that might not be all that the company has planned for the year. According to Square Enix president Yosuke Matsuda, the company has plans to release a major game later this year.
It is unclear as to what that major game could be given that Square Enix has plenty of franchises under their belts, but if it is a major game, it could be worth looking forward to. Unfortunately for those who might be hoping that this major game could be the Final Fantasy VII Remake, that probably won’t be the case.
