No, that’s not a typo. Welcome to the Weekly Warp-Up, your weekly wrap-up of the biggest and the best articles posted at Warp Zoned this week…
Nintendo will release two of the biggest games of 2013 this week: Pokemon X and Pokemon Y. But before the pocket monsters invade the 3DS for the first time in a “main series” Pokemon game, the publisher some of their plans for the rest of 2013… and beyond. For example, they’ve confirmed that Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze will now be released in February 2014. And they’ve also added Toon Link and Sonic the Hedgehog to Super Smash Bros. 4.
By the way, Beyond: Two Souls will also be released next week and we went hands-on with Quantic Dream’s next title. You might say it’s beyond awesome (so far).
