Overcooked 2 launches for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC on 7th August 2018, priced $29.99/£19.99/€24.99, with pre-orders bagging the "Too Many Cooks DLC" with bonus chefs Alien, Walrus, Unicorn, Monkey and Calico Cat.

While Nintendo isn't revealing anything at the moment about Super Smash Bros. Nintendo is hosting its Nintendo Direct E3 2018 press conference on Tuesday, June 12, 2018, at 9 AM PT, where the company is expected to show off its upcoming projects. Along with character reveals, which included all previous characters from the series, plus a few new ones, we learned about how the game will change on the way to the Switch. There's also an added ability to use powerful Smash attacks (not just the upward ones) right out of running, rather than get stuck with a dash attack, which was possible in Melee due to the ability to go into a crouch at any time while running. Nintendo isn't really reinventing the wheel here, even if it is picking up the pace of the game to be more like Melee. If you still haven't tried Fortnite, now's the time to jump in as thousands of Switch players see what all the fuss is about. In any case, here's everything Nintendo showed off during the stream.

All in all, those hoping for a whole new experience may be disappointed, but when all said and done, this game looks to be more of a refinement of everything that's come before, with "thousands" of little changes being scattered throughout. Levels are batshit insane now too, with more moving parts than ever.

Another significant tweak Ultimate is bringing involves the stage and fighter selection process. One has him dashing forward, grabbing the first player he touches and then grinding them across the stage before throwing them off the edge. Many eyes will be on the Super Smash Bros.

You'll have to wait until the second quarter of 2019 to get your hands on it but we bet its worth the while. Fortnite is now available on Nintendo Switch.

Why is the U.S. separating migrant children from their parents?
