Capcom controversy, Cuphead update, Switch stock rise, more



How is it going everybody, Adrian Simple here from The Gaming Observer, and this is your Daily Gaming Update for April 20th, 2019. Today is just going to be some quick news bullets without an outro, because it is currently 8pm and I have an exam in about 12 hours, so I need to study. Head over to for links if you’re interested in any of the stories from today.

Okay, first up, there is some controversy going on with the Capcom mini console. They are apparently using an emulator that is covered under a commercial-free license, meaning the code is open source, and can’t be sold for money. One developer has claimed that Capcom licenced it, others have disputed him. Capcom has yet to respond.

Next up, Cuphead has received the biggest free update yet alongside the Nintendo Switch port. It has added fully animated cinematics, new animations, a character select option, and more. You can now play as Cuphead’s brother, Mugman, who was previously just a co-op character.

Nintendo’s stock has increased by 17% in Tokyo following their entrance into China. This is something that investors have been waiting for for a while, evidently. We’ll see if that rise will be consistent over the next few months.

The Castlevania Anniversary Collection from Konami has the full list of games released. There will be 4 of them, Castlevania 2: Simon’s Quest, Bloodlines, The Adventure, and Kid Dracula. That will be $20 American releasing on May 16th.

Okay, that’s all for today folks. Thanks for tuning in, and see you tomorrow. Happy Gaming Everyone.
