1. Kentucky Route Zero Final Act
Seven years have passed since the first act of Kentucky Route Zero was released in 2013, but it seems the end is now in sight. Developer Cardboard Computer has announced that the fifth and final act will be released on January 28. For those who have never heard of the game, Kentucky Route Zero is a point-and-click adventure described as “a magical realist adventure game about a secret highway running through the caves beneath Kentucky, and the mysterious folks who travel it.”
2. Nintendo Switch Gets a Stylus The first official Nintendo Switch stylus is now available. Coinciding with the release of Dr. Kawashima's Brain Training, this marks the first time that a Nintendo-branded Switch stylus has been available for purchase. Unfortunately, most of us will still have to wait as the stylus is currently only available in the UK via Nintendo’s UK store.
3. Sony Reveals PlayStation 5 Logo During its 2020 CES press conference yesterday, Sony revealed the logo for the upcoming PlayStation 5.
