“In the Miitopia™ game, you can create Mii™ characters and then cast them as important characters in the game. This means that you can make a super team of your younger cousins and Aunt Flora.
If you want to get a taste of this comedy-filled, fantasy adventure, please try the free demo that just came out.”
Aside from the fact that this game is amazing (we’ve given the demo a go already), Nintendo allows you to take your save data to the full game if you choose to purchase. This means you’re not spending forever designing your miis for no reason. Happy days!

“Fortnite maker Epic Games has said it doesn’t want to make its blockbuster battle royale available via Xbox Cloud Gaming.
In comments made as part of Epic’s ongoing court case against Apple, and reported by The Verge, Epic business boss Joe Kreiner said xCloud was seen as a competitor.
“We viewed Microsoft’s efforts with xCloud to be competitive with our PC offerings,” Kreiner said. Follow-up questioning on the subject has not been made public.”
It’s unfortunate for anyone who was hoping to see Fortnite on xCloud, however, it is understandable to not put your game on a competitor’s system. Luckily, there are so many ways to play Fortnite now, it’s not a big deal.

The exclusive content includes a Ratchet & Clank skin, hat, and pet, which will not be available in any other format. Although otherwise, the game is exactly the same as usual.”
As big Among Us and Ratchet and Clank fans, this is a crossover we weren’t expecting. But we love it! We think it’s an absolutely adorable feature to lure PS4/PS5 users in.
