The end of season 3 of Ted Lasso sure felt like a finale for the show, but we still don’t have confirmation either way. Now Apple seems to be teasing that things aren’t quite over yet — but whether that will come in the form of a new season or a spinoff isn’t clear. Nate isn’t talking, though.
Yeah, sure, Nintendo just released a little game about saving the realm of Hyrule (again). But it also has another notable Switch release for the summer: Pikmin 4. It’s launching on July 21st, and you can get a brief glimpse at the new character creator in the latest trailer.
Fresh off the launch of Street Fighter 6, Capcom has announced that it’s joining the not-E3 frenzy with a showcase event at 6PM ET on June 12th. (That’s just a few hours after Ubisoft’s event on the same day.)
It’s expected to last around 36 minutes, and you can probably expect to see updates on the company’s big franchises, like Resident Evil and Monster Hunter, alongside new titles like the dino shooter Exoprimal. If we’re very lucky, we’ll see a new Ace Attorney.
You can keep up with the increasingly complex web of summer gaming events right here.
Fortnite’s current cyberpunk-themed season is ending soon, and Epic is already teasing what’s next: a season dubbed “Wilds,” which kicks off on June 9th. Better use those web shooters while you still can.
Bird Box was a big hit for Netflix back in 2018, so it’s no surprise we’re getting more. The new film is described as an “expansion” of the original and, as you can probably gather from the title, it explores how Barcelona is dealing with the post-apocalypse. It starts streaming on July 14th.
Because it sure was a packed week in the world of entertainment. We’ve got the excellent sequel to Into the Spider-Verse; a brilliant revival of Street Fighter; remakes of the classics games System Shock and Etrian Odyssey; and the season finales for Yellowjackets and Ted Lasso. Oh, and if you pre-ordered Diablo IV, you can dig in a little early.
