Hello there, it’s been a rather quiet week here an Snatch HQ, with everyone recovering from Gamescom. We start with a video for Middle-earth: Shadow of War which introduces the Marauder Tribe.
As you might have noticed there are lot of games around so here’s an update on some release dates which were announced in the past week. Dates are for UK unless stated otherwise.
- Dino Dini’s Kick Off Revival – September 12th (PC)
- Kingdom: New Lands – 14th September (Switch)
- SteamWorld Dig 2 – 21st September (Switch)

The developers of ARK: Survival Evolved say that enabling cross-play between PS4 and Xbox One would take “not take more than a few days” if Sony allowed it.
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is coming to Switch for Switch and you must your Kamehameha to protect the Dragon Ball World.
To me that sounds veru strange as I know the word Kamehameha (pronounced Ka-May-Ha-May-Ha) as he was the first ruler of Hawaii. Kamehameha, or Kalani Paiʻea Wohi o Kaleikini Kealiʻikui Kamehameha o ʻIolani i Kaiwikapu kauʻi Ka Liholiho Kūnuiākea as he was known to his mates, unified the Hawaiian islands with the help of British traders.
According to our resident Dragon Ball expert Miguel, the creator of DBZ couldn’t think of a name for the series’ special attack, so he asked his wife and she said it would be easy for readers to remember Kamehamehas name. I’m not convinced.
