In Other News

And now another game being made for another old gaming system is attempting to crowdfund the costs of having custom cartridges produced. This time, the game is Unholy Night: The Darkness Hunter (“an unreleased NTSC Format SNES cartridge title created in Japan”), which is being produced for the Super Nintendo by Blazepro (which is comprised of “members of the creative team who brought you games such as Samurai Shodown and King of Fighters”). Check them out on Kickstarter for more information.

The new Pokémon just went live in Pokémon GO and the servers are melting again.
