It’s Friday, y’all. The end of another week full of video game news, stories, and work have arrived and it’s time to wind down. And what better way to wind down than to let loose about the most interesting topics of the week? Nintendo, Epic, Apple, and more are coming your way on another packed Shacknews Dump!
On this September 24 edition of the Dump, Nintendo kind of stole the show this week. Whether it was the amazing announcements like Bayoneta 3 and Kirby and the Forgotten World or the very odd announcements like Chris Pratt playing Mario in an upcoming movie, it undeniably got everyone’s attention late in the week. Not to say there wasn’t other big news. Amazon is putting more of its attention on some federal legalization of marijuana and Apple is full-on blocking Fortnite from coming back to iOS until its legal battle with Epic Games is over.
Catch these and further topics as we go live with the Shacknews Dump on the Shacknews Twitch channel at 1:45 p.m. PT / 4:45 p.m. ET. You can also watch just below.
