  • • Choose a racer from 12 of the most iconic characters: SpongeBob SquarePants, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Hey Arnold!, Rugrats and MORE!!!
  • • Race on 24 different Slimed-filled tracks including Bikini Bottom, NYC sewers, Tommy Pickle's house, Arnold's school and more!
  • • Awesome Co-Op and Local Multi-Player for non-stop action the entire family will love!
  • • Customizable Karts with multiple power-ups and special attacks!
  • • Team-based co-op multiplayer, players can perform devastating fused attack for TONS of FUN!
  • •Slime overload will have you turning you Karts into jet-ski racers!

Get your tickets ready as Carnival Games is coming to all consoles this November


2K has announced that Carnival Games will be launching on Switch on November 6th, but also it will now hit both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One the same day.

The game is only launching digitally on the 6th, those who want a retail copy will need to wait until November 20th.

Like a real-life county fair, Carnival Games allows players of all ages and experience levels to enjoy classic games like ring toss (“Post Master”) and alley ball horse racing (“Roll-R-Derby”), as well as brand new attractions like drone racing (“Light Speed”) and cosmic bowling (“Cosmic Strike”).  Four uniquely themed alleys – Jungle Lane, Saturn Station, Vulture Gulch and Nuts & Bolts – provide a different look and feel for the games within them.  Players have the chance to win tickets by playing any of the 20 games and redeem them for new games and outfits for their customizable carnival guest characters.


More fighters and stages coming to Dead or Alive 6


Koei Tecmo has announced that four classic fighters are joining the roster of Dead or Alive 6 and a new stage will also be included.


The first fighter returning to the fray is Ayane. Ordered to hunt down her half-sister, Kasumi, Ayane’s Mugen Tenshin Hajinmon style of Ninjutsu is as fierce as it gets. Dubbed “The Killer Kunoichi,” Ayane’s ever-changing moves are polished to the point that her opponents have a hard time seeing what is coming next. Forced to live in the shadows, she attempts to fight through her conflicted feelings toward her half-sister, while also fighting her way to the top of the tournament.



The second combatant marking her return is Swedish martial artist, Marie Rose. Marie, known as “The Wicked Lil’ Servant,” boasts a Russian military style emphasizing constant fluidity of movement, enabling the fighter to utilize her small frame to her advantage, outmaneuvering enemies with a variety of tricky moves while turning her opponent’s attacks against them.




Next up is the “Super-Secret Fighter Chick” known as Honoka. This 18-year-old fan of professional wrestling and martial arts movies invented her own fighting style known as Honoka Fu; an art where she combines her favourite moves from fighters she has observed. While in her Hissatsu-no-Kamae stance, she is imbued with unbelievable strength, making her capable of delivering attacks the likes even she has never seen before as her right hand emits a mysterious glow.


The final fighter re-entering the arena is former professional assassin, Bayman. Known as “The Man Who Overcame Death,” Bayman stands inside the ring with the same kind of cold-hearted professionalism that made him such a successful mercenary thanks to his devastatingly-dangerous skills in Combat Sambo.



Those looking for a fight can do so on the new stage Lost Paradise. The magnificent jungle is mixed with the decaying remains of man-made constructions, with some surprising secrets popping out of all corners. Collide with the extremely large eggs and you will not only disturb whatever’s inside, but also alert their mother – a giant Pteranodon who will swoop in for the attack. But that’s not the only danger lurking, as the fence separating the fighters from the jungle is sparked with electricity. Fall to the bottom level and a Tyrannosaurus awaits, ready to rip into anyone within biting distance.

Razer have announced a new device for those who stream games, or just want to avoid messing up their hair, the Ifrit.



The Razer Ifrit has a low-profile dual earset design with a professional-grade, adjustable condenser microphone and flat frequency response in-ear headphones – perfect for broadcasters needing minimal visibility of their audio equipment but still deliver professional quality audio to their recordings.


“With non-gaming live streaming becoming more popular, we designed the Razer Ifrit to appeal to broadcasters who want a lightweight, high-quality solution to their broadcast audio needs,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. "Whether you’re IRL streaming, gaming, painting, cosplay costume building or cooking, the Razer Ifrit is the perfect headset to deliver audio to your viewers without bulky headphones and microphones getting in the way of what you do or what your viewers see.”

The Razer Ifrit is complemented by the Razer USB Audio Enhancer, a USB-to-analogue converter that focuses on improving the quality of the microphone and allows two Razer Ifrit headsets to be connected to one PC, for dual streaming with two broadcasters at once. 

The device is out now on the Razer store and will set buyers back $170.
