Shacknews Dump - April 9, 2021

We were able to pull ourselves away from games of PAC-MAN 99 and the Diablo 2 alpha test because a good Dump waits for no one.


The weekend has arrived and with it comes another Shacknews Dump. What a week it has been for gaming news. PAC-MAN 99, Intel profanity filters, and so much more packed into such a tight space, you’d think every one of them was vying to become another Dump of their own.

On this April 9 edition of the Shacknews Dump digital events have been rampant with new information this week. The ESA shared a wealth of details about what the all-digital version of E3 2021 will be and when. Nintendo will be there. Microsoft will be there. But how will they dox press and influencers this time? Speaking of Nintendo, they got together with Bandai Namco to release new battle royale PAC-MAN 99! A pleasant surprise to say the least and free to play as the other 99-style games have been.

You can catch these and other hot news topics on the Shacknews Twitch channel as we go live at 1:30 p.m. PT / 4:30 p.m. ET. You can also catch the show live below.
