Shacknews Dump - February 11, 2022

Nintendo hit us with a tidal wave of gaming goodness in its latest Direct, and we're going to discuss that and more on today's Shacknews Dump.


It’s a good week to be a Nintendo fan. And we’re about to close up shop on this fine Friday by talking about why on the Shacknews Dump. Stick around because we’ve got plenty more hot news topics from the week to discuss as well.

On this February 11 edition of the Shacknews Dump, we get into the nitty-gritty of all the gaming goodness that Nintendo shared with us this week on its latest Nintendo Direct presentation. There was plenty to see for gaming fans of all kinds. That wasn’t all though PlatinumGames’ new CEO Atsushi Inaba is in and has lofty plans for the future of the developer that may include more live service games. Furthermore, Dead Island 2 might not be so dead after all?

Be sure to tune in as we talk about these and other hot news stories on the Shacknews Dump on the Shacknews Twitch channel at 1:30 p.m. PT / 4:30 p.m. ET. You can also catch the stream live just below.

Here’s the full rundown of topics slated for today’s Shacknews Dump:
