Read on below!
Pokemon's Seventh Generation kicks off with Sun and Moon
It's official: The Pokemon Company has announced that Generation 7 is coming with Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon when it releases on 3DS in Holiday 2016. Not much else was revealed about the games other than their logos and the fact that they'll be available to play in nine languages, but expect to hear more in the near future.
We also got some new information regarding Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow, which are launching tomorrow. Apparently, you'll be able to use the Pokemon Bank app on 3DS to bring any Pokemon from the 3DS version of those first three games over to Sun and Moon. No word on support for X/Y or ORAS, however.

Rumor: Nintendo and EA might rekindle their relationship for NX; sports games a central topic surrounding this
Remember EA's "unprecedented partnership" with Nintendo back when Wii U was going to launch in 2012? We all know how that turned out in the end, but it looks as if both companies are ready to give the relationship another try if the latest rumors are correct.
Reportedly, talks are in place coming up over the next month or two between the company that will determine what level of support EA will be giving to Nintendo's next platform, codenamed 'NX.' The rumors indicate that EA is looking for major support from Nintendo regarding its sports titles and how they plan to cultivate an audience of sports fans that they can sell to. EA also apparently wants hardware bundles with their games, and for Nintendo to start promoting their hardware and software during high-profile sports events.
It's too early to say what will happen for sure, but stay tuned for this year's E3, in which we'll likely find out whether Nintendo was able to secure EA's support once again or not. If they do, they could be a key player in keeping NX afloat in subsequent years thanks to the popularity of their games.

Resident Evil 4, 5, and 6 coming to PS4 and Xbox One
Resident Evil Zero HD Remaster might have just released but Capcom is just getting started with Resident Evil remasters. The company recently announced that Resident Evil 4, 5, and 6 are all coming to PS4 and Xbox One over the course of 2016.
The first game to release will be Resident Evil 6 in March, followed by 5 during the Summer, and 4 during the Fall. Fortunately, all of RE6's add-on content will come with the game, in case you were worried that they would make you buy it again.
Alan Wake may be getting a new game
If you're a big fan of Remedy's Alan Wake series, you might be getting a new game at... some point -- apparently a trademark for "Alan Wake's Return" has been spotted. What might "Return" allude to? Is it a remaster of the first game for Xbox One, or might it actually be a full-blown Alan Wake 2? We'll have to wait and see.
March PS Plus Games Announced
Sony has announced what games you can expect to see as part of the March PlayStation Plus free games lineup, and they are...
Flame Over, PS Vita
The Last Guy, PS3
Reality Fighters, PS Vita
Super Stardust HD, PS3
For the most part, it really looks to be a mish-mash of indie games this time around, with the excellent Super Stardust HD thrown in (which somehow has never come to PS Plus until this point).
Broforce and Galak-Z look to be the highest profile games aside from SSHD, so be sure to check them out if you have a PS Plus subscription once March arrives.
