Fans Think Re:Verse Was Delayed, but It Never Had a Release Date to Begin With

When Capcom first announced Resident Evil: Re:Verse, the spinoff competitive multiplayer game, the community had assumed it would launch alongside Resident Evil Village. It was sort of presented that way during the reveal, but Capcom has clarified this by telling VGC that Re:Verse does not have a definitive release date. Instead, it’s set to launch sometime in summer 2021, as shown in the tweet below.

Nintendo Has Added Online Play to Super Mario Party

Seemingly out of nowhere, Nintendo has updated Super Mario Party to include online play. It used to only feature online functionality as part of its Online Marathon mode, which only offered random mini-games, but now, thanks to the recent update, Mario Party mode and Partner Party mode are both playable via the internet. Fans were pleased with the news of the update but were wondering why it wasn’t implemented to begin with. Nonetheless, you can download the free online update right now.
