My Hero Academia
A few days ago, Bandai-Namco announced a new game based on the My Hero Academia series, called My Hero Academia: One’s Justice. While the first one was on Nintendo 3DS, this one will be on Nintendo Switch. And today, the publisher revealed that there would indeed be a western release, sometime in 2018.
Here’s three versions of the teaser trailer:

My Hero Academia: One’s Justice (Switch) will be released next year worldwide.
Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 Plus
Today, Bandai-Namco announced that their next Nintendo Switch game would be Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 Plus, to be released on February 22nd in Europe and North America. It offers various game modes and features:
- Score Attack Mode
- Adventure Mode (with big boss battles)
- Co-op Mode
- online leaderboards
- and more…
About the Co-op Mode: it’s actually a Nintendo Switch-exclusive features, and it can be played with a single Joy-Con per player (which means you only need one console and one copy of the game to play with a friend). That mode features special co-op maneuvers, giving this mode a unique spin on the traditional Pac-Man gameplay.
Here’s the debut trailer for Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 Plus on Nintendo Switch:

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2
Today, Bandai-Namco shared some more details about the Extra Pack 2 DLC for Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, releasing in February next year. It will include a brand new character called Fu, who carries a ninja sword for swift attacks. He also happens to love smiling mischievously. The DLC Pack will also include additional Story Mode contents, with Time Patrol missions to tackle with your Master.
But that’s not all: the DLC Pack will allow players to customise Dragon Ball characters, with their attacks and costume colours being adjustable. Finally, there’s new outfits for special characters, such as Goku and his Journey to the West garb.
Here’s some screenshots for the contents of Extra Pack 2:
