    2. Retro Consoles/Translation News

    Capcom is getting into the plug-and-play retro craze. But where the NES Classic, PlayStation Classic, and Sega Gensis Mini have gone small, Capcom is going big.
    The publisher today announced the Capcom Home Arcade, a plug-and-play system with two full-size arcade joystick and button set-ups on a panel shaped like the company's logo. The Home Arcade features Sanwa joystick and buttons, and Capcom's European store front is current accepting preorders with a €229.99 price tag and an October 25 release date. (North American release details will be announced later.) It will be manufactured by Koch Media under license from Capcom.


    As for the games, the Home Arcade will include 16 titles from the company's CPS1 and CPS2 arcade hardware offerings, running on the FB Alpha arcade and console emulator. While the lineup includes some of the company staples like Street Fighter II Hyper Fighting and Final Fight, it also features a number of deeper cuts like Capcom Sports Club, Mega Man: The Power Battle, and Armored Warriors. Perhaps most interesting among the offerings is Alien vs. Predator, the officially licensed 1994 arcade beat-'em-up that has never previously seen a home adaptation or re-release.
    Capcom made no mention of being able to add more games to the system later on, but it does have WiFi that the company said will be used to connect to global high-score leaderboards.

    Today during its regular Inside Xbox event, Microsoft revealed its long-rumored digital-only version of the Xbox, officially called the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition and planned for launch on May 7.
    The Xbox One S All-Digital Edition confirmed rumors that have circulated recently of a console nearly identical to the current Xbox One S systems, including a 1TB harddrive, supporting 4K Ultra HD Video and HDR, and coming with a single wireless controller. However, per its name, it does not include the physical disc drive and cannot play physical games.

    2. Nintendo Switch

    Software sales drove revenue and profit growth for Nintendo in the last fiscal year, with 23 Switch games selling more than one million units.
    The two biggest sellers were Nintendo's major launches for the year: Super Smash Bros Ultimate with 13.81 million units, and Pokémon Let's Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon Let's Go, Eevee! With 10.63 million units -- the third and fifth best-selling Switch games to date.
    Nintendo's other big first-party release, Super Mario Party, sold 6.4 million units, but it was beaten by Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, which sold 7.47 million units despite having launched in April 2017.
    In total, 23 Switch games became million-sellers during the fiscal year ended March 31, 2019, and 118.55 million units of software were sold overall -- an 86.7% increase over the prior year.
    Nintendo's digital software business also increased, with full-game downloads on Switch almost doubling year-on-year to reach ¥118.8 billion ($1.1 billion).
    In terms of hardware, Nintendo fell just short of its forecast with 16.95 million units of the Switch sold. That is an increase of 12.7% year-on-year, but it is shy of the 17 million units it expected to sell, which was itself cut from an earlier projection of 20 million units.
    As of March 31, Nintendo Switch had sold 34.74 million units worldwide.
    Nintendo earned ¥1.2 trillion ($10.7 billion) in revenue in the fiscal year, a 13.7% increase. It earned ¥194 billion ($1.7 billion) in profit, up 39% year-on-year.
    Rumours of two new versions of the Switch continue to swirl, with the cheaper and more portable of the two expected to launch in the summer. However, Nintendo has yet to reveal plans for anything other than software.
    In that sense, though, Nintendo has a busy year ahead, with Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 04: VR Kit this month, Super Mario Maker 2 in June, and Fire Emblem: Three Houses in July. Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, a new Animal Crossing, and The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening are scheduled to launch in 2019, though firm dates have not been set.
    It will also launch Dr. Mario World and Mario Kart Tour for mobile devices, the latter of which is about to start a closed beta test.
    Update: Bloomberg reports that speaking to reporters in Osaka, Japan, Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa said that new Nintendo Switch hardware would not be announced at E3. He did not specifically squash reports that a smaller, cheaper Switch console would launch this fall.

    2. PS4

    Downloaded games have quickly come to dominate PlayStation Now, proving twice as popular as streamed titles on Sony's on-demand service.
    PlayStation Now launched as a streaming service in 2014, and Sony only added the option to download games from its catalogue in September 2018. As Sony chief financial officer Hiroki Totoki explained in a call with investors last week, the feature was added, "for users who want to enjoy gameplay without worrying about the network connections."
    The move has proved to be decisive in terms of user retention and engagement, Totoki said. Seven months on from the feature being added, downloaded games receive double the amount of gameplay time compared to streamed titles.
    Microsoft chose the download model for its own on-demand service, Xbox Game Pass, and the fact that it has made such an immediate impact on PlayStation Now raises questions about the quality of experience a game streaming service can provide at present. It should be noted, of course, that Microsoft is also preparing to launch its own streaming service, with the first public tests scheduled to take place later this year.

    New from Hydr8gon

    NoiES for Switch

    I present to you my own original NES emulator for the Switch, NoiES! This entire emulator was written from scratch by me. I started this project just to teach myself about how emulators are made so that I can work on larger projects in the future, but it went farther than I originally expected and is now pretty much a full-fledged emulator, apart from some minor inaccuracies and some missing mappers.

    But there are already other NES emulators for the Switch, why use this one?
    Well, no reason in particular. As I said before, this was more a learning experience for me, but I ported it to the Switch for the homebrew bounty and I might as well release it. I suppose the biggest advantage I can offer is that since I developed the entire emulator core myself I am very familiar with it and can easily dive in to fix bugs and add new features.

    Minor inaccuracies?
    Yes, well, I've yet to test my CPU timing for cycle accuracy so no promises there. There are also some minor timing issues with the PPU, particularly with the MMC3 IRQ counter, which can be seen in the slight vibration of the status bar in Kirby's Adventure. Another odd bug I found is that I can't seem to navigate the items menu in The Legend of Zelda. Oh, and the audio system is still kind of a work in progress, so you might notice crackles (especially in docked mode!), missing sounds, or things that sound slightly off. (Wow, doing a great job selling it here)

    Mappers?
    Right. Every ROM has a mapper; it's basically what loads different portions of the ROM memory into the CPU memory for execution. I've implemented mappers 1 through 4, which should cover a large portion of the NES library. If you have any particular games you want to play that aren't supported, tell me the mapper number (the emulator will tell you which one it is if it isn't supported) so I can place higher priority on implementing it.

    New from romain337

    Here is a quick and dirty port of GrafX2 the famous paint editor that we all love.
    I just created a Makefile and put all the needs inside, then added a bunch of defined(__SWITCH__) here and here. Just diff the source (included) against the original to see what changed if you ever want to add things on it.

    I do not plan to support this project so feel free to take the source and maintain it on github yourself. Maybe in 6 month or more I'll add proper mouse support or something.

    Things that don't work:
    - on screen keyboard (it appear but nothing can be typed with it)
    - no lua scripting
    - no tiff support
    - 1280*720 resolution. It seem like a bug in SDL2, but really, I don't know.

    Things that work:
    - drawing \o/
    - loading/saving (if you can type into the textbox).
    - ...

    All credits to the original authors of this program.

    The original project is on gitlab:

    2. Nintendo Switch

    The classic MS-DOS shooter by Ken Silverman finally running native on a portable platform! This is based off the enhanced SDL port for Windows and Linux with enhanced textures and 60fps rendering.
    Includes the complete game and uses Adlib emulation for the music. If there are any bugs or feedback then please let me know. The game is also in the Homebrew AppStore.

    Known bugs:

    Highscore and game saves can't get a keyboard input for name entry so they default to the name Ken or use the Switch account name if you are signed in. If there's an available on-screen keyboard for this part then let me know!
    Replacing the data files with the files from Ken's Labyrinth 1.0, the game loads fine but none of the controls work


    Change log:

    3.2.2: 2019-04-02
    * USB keyboard and mouse support for Nintendo Switch

    3.2.1: 2019-03-03
    * Anisotropic filtering now supported on Switch

    3.2.0: 2019-12-18
    * New audio device selectable in the setup menu: Adlib random instruments. This will play
    the music tracks with randomly selected instruments. If you don't like the instrument settings
    you can select it again and it will load a different random set.
    * Changing audio settings now no longer requires you to quit the game. All changes are immediate
    * Switch - Now dynamically switches to 1080p from 720p when connecting to the dock and vice versa.
    The setup menu will also reflect the current mode.
