Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury will see one of its voice actresses replaced. Haruka Shirashi will replace Yume Miyamoto as Nika Nanaura in the Japanese dub of the series. The reason for the change is a result of Miyamoto's poor health. Shirashi will debut as Nika Nanaura in Episode 10 of Mobile Suit: Gundam The Witch from Mercury on December 11, 2022. [Thanks, Famitsu!]
An official announcement regarding the change also appeared through the official The Witch from Mercury Twitter account. It is fairly straightforward, just highlighting that there will be a change in voice actress for Nika Nanuara going forward. There is no indication that Miyamoto will return to voice Nanuara going forward if her condition improves.
Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury is a new entry in the series. It features an entirely new mobile suit and protagonist. Alongside this, a special prologue novel was released. It covers events that occurred after the prologue anime episode. The episode itself went over events that transpired before the first episode of the anime. An official English localization of the prologue novel was released on November 10, 2022 and is immediately available to read.
Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury is available through various streaming services and the GundamInfo YouTube channel.

Nintendo promised a The Super Mario Bros Movie Direct on November 29, 2022 with a second trailer. As expected, it delivered a detailed look at more characters and scenes from the film. Most notably, it showed how Princess Peach, Donkey Kong, and Luigi would look in The Super Mario Bros Movie. Immediately after the Nintendo Direct, Illumination uploaded it to YouTube.
Here's new The Super Mario Bros Movie Direct, showing Princess Peach, Donkey Kong, and Luigi in trailer 2. Before the presentation of it began, the voice actors for Princess Peach and Donkey Kong, Anya Taylor-Joy and Seth Rogan spoke about their roles.
The first trailer didn't feature as many characters. It started with a detailed look at Bowser invading a penguin kingdom with his minions. After that, Mario ended up in the Mushroom Kingdom after coming down a pipe. He then met Toad, and the two headed off to the "city" proper. This also provided the first opportunity to hear Jack Black as Bowser, Keegan-Michael Key as Toad, and Chris Pratt as Mario.
Ahead of this second The Super Mario Bros Movie trailer, quite a bit of other material leaked out. Different posters for the movie appeared. These showcased major characters like Mario, Luigi, Peach, Toad, and Bowser.
The Super Mario Bros Movie will appear in theaters in the US on April 7, 2023. It will make its Japanese debut on April 28, 2023.

It will be shown via YouTube, with the broadcast to be held on December 3, 2022 at 1pm PST/4pm EST in North America or December 4, 2022 at 12am CET/8am JST in the Japanese and European regions. The event will feature information about Dragon Ball FighterZ, Dragon Ball Super Card Game, and Dragon Ball Legends. A similar event was held in 2022, which distributed information about an assortment of Dragon Ball related titles.
Additionally, an online arena will be available for players to watch battle and interact with other users. Players can choose from a total of eight avatars to represent themselves in this digital space. Emotes will also be available, which include the Kamehameha, an applause, fist-pump, and glowstick emote. More information about this specific feature will be released closer to the event. However, participation will require users to create a Bandai Namco account. The online arena will be available to access either through PC or mobile devices.

With the recent release of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, GameFreak introduced a total of 103 new Pokemon. That's quite a lot, for a game that's already teeming with classics from generations past. So now with the addition of those 100 Paldean Pokemon, just how many Pocket Monsters are in the entire franchise?
As of November 2022, there are 1008 species of Pokemon in the series. That does not mean all of them are available to catch in Scarlet or Violet, of course. This number does not count those with different forms and types as a separate entry. For example, Vulpix and Alolan Vulpix count as one. With that said, let's look at a break-down of how many Pokemon are in each region and generation.
The exact number of new Pokemon per generation is slightly incorrect in the above list. In Generation VII, GameFreak introduced Meltan and Melmetal in the Let's Go spin-off games. However, those two are from Kanto and not Alola.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are available for the Nintendo Switch worldwide.

The cover of the next issue of Nintendo Magazine has been revealed. Its subject this season is none other than Splatoon 3. Now a pillar franchise for the company, and Inkling and their Little Buddy are front and center on the Winter 2022 issue cover. The magazine goes up for free at game stores in Japan this week. A digital edition will be available on the Nintendo website by December 1, 2022.
Check out the cover below.
The Nintendo Magazine 2022 Winter issue is, like all other issues of the publication, mainly a marketing tool to promote new and upcoming games as well as merchandise for Nintendo's brands. The merchandise can be ordered for delivery, or often found in places like Nintendo's Tokyo and Osaka superstores.
Though Nintendo Magazine is in Japanese, international fans who can't read the language may be in luck as well. In recent months, Nintendo has taken the extra step of translating excerpts from the catalog into English for global consumption.
For example, you can check out translated pages from the Nintendo Magazine Summer 2022 issue at this link. The link contains 28 localized pages promoting games like Nintendo Switch Sports, Ring Fit Adventure, Splatoon 3, and more. A special feature on Kirby and the Forgotten World, as well as for Kirby's 30th anniversary are also shown, along with a Super Mario Strikers personality quiz.
The Winter 2022 edition of Nintendo Magazine releases on December 1, 2022 in Japan. A translated edition may follow sometime after.

Not long after appearing at WonHobby G 2022 Autumn, two of Good Smile Company's new anime figures are already available on its site. The Chainsaw Man Makima and Aki Nendoroid pre-orders opened. Both are expected to appear in Japan in June 2023. They'll show up in North America a few months later in August 2023. Each one costs ¥6,200/$39.99.
Both Aki and Makima are a part of the Public Safety Devil Hunters Tokyo Special Division 4. Each one is wearing their uniform for their figure debut. This unit is known for being a mix of normal humans fighting alongside both devil hybrids like Denji, devils like Angel, and fiends like Power.
Makima can be displayed with or without her coat. She comes with smiling, neutral, and interested face plates. She also comes with a cola-flavor lollipop, like the one she offers Denji.
[gallery columns="5" link="file" size="full" ids="941540,941541,941542,941543,941544"]
Meanwhile, Aki comes with a number of his weapons and signature parts. For example, he has his "Kon" hand sign. He can be smoking one of his cigarettes. You can pose him wielding a sword. He can also show a softer side by making an apple bunny slice, like he did for Denji. His face plates feature a serious one, a smiling one, and one with one eye shut.
[gallery columns="5" size="full" ids="941545,941546,941547,941548,941549" link="file"]
The expected release date for both the Makima and Aki Chainsaw Man Nendoroid figures is June 2023 for Japan. They'll show up in North America in August 2023. Pre-orders are open for both until January 12, 2023.

Back in August 2022, Good Smile Company announced at Smile Fest 2022 that Persona characters would join its Hello! Good Smile line. Now, pre-orders opened for the three characters. The Persona 5 Joker, Panther, and Mona figures will be a part of Hello! Good Smile starting in May 2023 in Japan. They'll show up in North America in July 2023. As is common with this budget line, each one will be ¥2,000/$12.99.
The Joker, Panther, and Mona figures feature all three characters in their Phantom Thief attire. Each one only offers one point of articulation. People can adjust the character's head. This allows it to be tilted to the side. They are all stylized approached to the different people. Every Hello! Good Smile figure features an open-mouthed smile, two eyes, and a chibi sort of appearance. They also all stand at just around four inches tall.
Here's a closer look at the Persona 5 Joker figure.
This is what Panther will look like.
Finally, this is what the Mona figure will look like.
The Hello! Good Smile Persona 5 Joker, Panther, and Mona figures will appear in Japan in May 2023 and North America in July 2023. Pre-orders are open until January 6, 2023.

Rejoice, Doomfist mains, and everyone in Overwatch 2 who doesn't play Sojourn. After a controversial decision to not nerf Sojourn during Season 1's balance patch, Blizzard will finally slam Reinhardt's balance hammer down on the dominant Sojourn, who has been ruling the ladder with her high damage and one-shot potential. In addition to Sojourn soon getting a nerf in Overwatch 2, Doomfist (recently reworked as a tank hero) has been underperforming in the ladder, so he'll be getting some buffs. Other heroes like Mercy and Ana will also get balance changes. Sojourn's high mobility and ability to instantly kill targets have been a dominant factor in many team fights, making her a dominant pick in high-ladder matches. Blizzard is preparing to bring the nerf hammer and force Sojourn to take closer fights. While exact numbers have not been revealed, Blizzard stated it is intending to reduce her lethality at long ranges and force her to use her high mobility to br...

So far, it seems that many players and critics felt quite underwhelmed with Gotham Knights. On Metacritic, the PC version received a middling 66 Metascore and a downright abysmal 3.2 user score, and while it fared noticeably better on Steam, it seems clear that it hasn't really set the world on fire. Even so, those who found something to like in Gotham Knights may enjoy the free update that dropped today. This Gotham Knights update added two new co-op multiplayer modes that seem a bit more substantial than players might initially expect. The first of these modes, titled Heroic Assault, centers around Starro, the intergalactic starfish-esque conqueror that previously made an appearance in The Suicide Squad film from last year. In this mode, four players can team up and take on a gauntlet of 30 floors located underneath Gotham City. These floors feature all sorts of enemies and challenges to tackle, so players will want to bring their A-game to make it out alive. In addition to...
