The Yakuza 6 demo has returned to PSN

Nintendo Download: Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 Plus

Nintendo is really surprising me as we enter an era where games aren't taking that long to be ported or straight-up designed for the Switch. While a lot of its early offerings were ports of one, two, or three-year old games we're now g...
