Saints Row 3 on Switch, Reigns: Game of Thones, Shadowgun War Games - Here's the big news you may have missed this week
Good ol' Gamescom
Gamescom is a busy old week for announcements and the like, and its 2018 was no exception.
Not only did we see a new Shadowgun game get announced, but Nintendo had a plethora of things to shout about, and we even got word of a new Reigns entry tied to a huge license.
Missed all that this week? Fear not, we've got you covered. Here's six stories from the last week that you really should have paid attention to.
Shadowgun War Games is coming next year
It feels like only yesterday that Shadowgun Legends launched on mobile, and before its even made its anticipated jump to Switch, a new game is on the way.
Shadowgun War Games is a 5v5 team-shooter, with you and your teammates battling it out with others on the Internet to see who's the best killing machine and who is decent cannon fodder. We bet it'll be pretty darn good to boot.Find out more here!

Saints Row 3 is coming to Switch
Bit of an odd one this, but Saints Row: The Third is coming to Switch. Why not the fourth and much better entry? Who knows.
Still, Saints Row 3 is a brilliant entry in the series, so if you missed it before, it'll be a great chance to catch up. And hey, maybe it'll force Rockstars hand into releasing a GTA on Switch. Fingers crossed.Find out more here!
We're happy to announce that @SaintsRow: The Third is coming to #NintendoSwitch! More info to be revealed in due course #gamescom pic.twitter.com/rvGyqEmANi — Deep Silver UK (@DeepSilverUK) August 21, 2018
Monument Valley is getting... a movie?
No, you read that right. Monument Valley is really getting its own film. Because that sounds like a fantastic idea.
OK, all snark aside, it's got a decent team behind it - Director Patrick Osborne has previously worked on Disney projects like Big Hero 6, Paperman, and Feast, and with the backing of Paramount, there'll probably be a decent budget to build whatever vision he has in mind.Find out more here!
The rumours are correct. There's going to be a Monument Valley movie! In collaboration with Paramount Pictures and Patrick Osborne. We couldn't be more excited. https://t.co/j2riIGZfru pic.twitter.com/XGPBabM3z5 — ustwo games (@ustwogames) August 22, 2018
Trials Rising launches on February 12th
Can't go wrong with a bit of Trials, as my Dad always said. That was before the motorbike accident. Don't try that stuff at home, kids.
Anyway, the next entry in the ridiculous physics-puzzler-racer series is coming to Switch on February 12th next year. Get hype! Vroom vroom!Find out more here!
