● In likely the top story all week, the Japan Meteorological Agency report that the scale of Super Typhoon Hagibis is “large” and the intensity is “violent”. The Kyoto region could be affected from the 12th with Nintendo Live 2019 scheduled to commence on the 13th. This is an ongoing story and we should have a clearer idea in a couple of days or so over whether the event is likely to be cancelled.

● Bethesda Softworks announced a delay to DOOM Eternal for 20 March 2020 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, with no set date for the Nintendo Switch version. The pre-order bonus will be DOOM 64 which will be available on all platforms on 20 March.

● The only addition in the Version 1.4.0 update to Yo-kai Watch 4 was in-fact Chairman McKraken (screenshots here). Players also receive a 5-Star Coin, 1-Star Coin and 2 x Crank-a-Kai.

Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth Hacker’s Memory Complete Edition has a bug where typing a comma (,) in your character’s name will mean you will be unable to save the game. A Version 1.0.2 patch will fix this, although it won’t necessarily be available on launch day.

Fire Emblem Heroes will see the new Hall of Forms event on Friday featuring Alm: Imperial Ascent, Celica: Caring Princess, Mae: Bundle of Energy, and Boey: Skillful Survivor. Today’s Version 3.10.0 update made room for the update and also included Aether Resorts additions, new weapon skills and weapon to refine , additional Heroes to summon using Heroic Grails, and more in the patch notes here.
