Touhou Kobotu V: Burst Battle was previously announced as coming to PlayStation 4 and PS Vita as an updated version of a game that released for PC back in 2010. The original release date was supposed to be coming sometime this summer, but that has now been pushed back just a bit due to the game now coming to the Nintendo Switch.
NIS American made this announcement today through a press release that Tohou Kobotu V: Burst Battle would be releasing on September 5th in the US, September 8th in Europe, but would not just be coming to the originally announced platforms. In addition, it will also be arriving for Nintendo Switch on that same day.
Touhou Kobotu V: Burst Battle is a bullet hell type fighter that looks like it should fit right at home on the Nintendo Switch. The definitive version may still be the PS4 release due to having PSVR support, but having it portable on the Switch will be nice, even alongside the PS Vita release.
Quake Champions is currently undergoing beta for id Software and Bethesda’s next entry in the storied and popular arena shooter franchise. This time the game focuses on several different champions with varying personalities to draw players in and develop a favorite.
At the base of it though, the game is still a power-up fueled gore fest of blowing heads up and all that fun jazz that made our childhoods great. Being the first main entry in the franchise since 2005’s Quake 4 is a big deal. The developers have also promised that the game will not be released on consoles. Ah well, console fans. At least we have some footage below for you to gawk at. Enjoy over 40 minutes of Quake Champions beta.

This should hardly come as a surprise given the wealth of leaked information on Ubisoft’s upcoming releases lately. The company announced during its financial report the major titles slated for release this fiscal year — which spans from April 1, 2017 to March 31, 2018 — and they’re exactly what you expect.
South Park: The Fractured But Whole was mentioned and isn’t shocking given its currently targeted Q3 release, unless it is to suffer a third delay. The most notable of games mentioned were new entries for Assassin’s Creed and Far Cry. This aligns with the constant barrage of reports stating that both franchises would have new life breathed into them this year.
Assassin’s Creed Origins, as it’s believed to be called, is supposedly taking the series to the very beginning of it all (hence the use of “Origins” in the title) in ancient Egypt. Far Cry, on the other hand, has been the center of a particularly interesting rumor. The word is that a wild west setting will provide us a new take on Ubisoft’s acclaimed open-world formula. Although, this would go against even earlier reports of a teased return to Far Cry 3’s island.
The Crew 2 was definitely the oddball out of the bunch, but it shouldn’t be completely unexpected. The first entry did manage to hit the 12 million player mark this month. With numbers like that, a follow-up is a no-brainer.
Ubisoft’s E3 press conference will occur on Monday, June 12th at 1PM PST. I think we can safely bet on these titles being in attendance.
