Dragon Quest XI S Nintendo Switch Release Date May Be Announced This Month


Dragon Quest XI S for the Nintendo Switch may see its release date announced this month. A dedicated stage show at Jump Festa, an annual manga and anime expo in Japan, will be broadcast on YouTube. It features series creator Yuji Horii, Dragon Quest XI Producer Hokuto Okamoto, and Director Takeshi Uchikawa will appear, alongside a secret special guest. While the announcement at Jump Festa doesn’t hint at what’s on the agenda, given the names on stage, it could be a rather relevant reveal pertaining to the Dragon Quest XI release date or gameplay. The Dragon Quest XI S Nintendo Switch reveal time is 2pm JST (10:30am IST) on December 22.

Considering that Dragon Quest XI sold four million units on PS4, Nintendo 3DS, and Windows PC, publisher Square Enix is probably looking at ways to get Dragon Quest XI in the hands of more people. A bigger concern now more than ever considering that The Shadow of the Tomb Raider sales have been tepid and the critical response to Just Cause 4 has been lukewarm at best. The Japanese role-playing title has been out since July last year in its home country, and hit Western shores on September 4.

Though Dragon Quest XI released in Japan on both Nintendo 3DS and PS4, there won’t be an English-language version for the former. Dragon Quest XI will come to Nintendo Switch instead internationally.

Meanwhile, this is the first time a Dragon Quest game is on PC, and Square Enix has gone all out for it, adding features that are present in the PS4 version of the game including 4K support, a first-person camera mode, and an additional ‘hard mode’.

The Tata Harrier is the new compact SUV from the Indian auto giant and anticipation levels are high from the Hyundai Creta rival. While the production-spec Tata Harrier’s exterior has been fully revealed in images, the automaker has now teased the interior of the SUV in a video.

The teaser of the new Tata Harrier showcases the dashboard. The video confirms a floating 8.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system similar to that of the concept and a dual-tone finish in grey and brown on the dashboard. The three-spoke multi-function steering wheel is likely to sport a new design over the ones that we’ve seen since the Zest. Expect the number of buttons to be minimal across the dashboard, barring the controls for the automatic climate control. The teaser also reveals chrome surrounds of the air-con vents.

The Tata Harrier’s touchscreen infotainment system will be loaded with features including navigation, Bluetooth telephone, reverse camera display, MirrorLink, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and more. The system is likely to be sourced from Visteon, which also makes the infotainment systems for the Range Rover Velar. A Harman audio system will also make it to the Harrier.

India’s First Fortnite PS4 Tournament to Take Place at the Indian Games Expo in Mumbai This Month


India gets its first Fortnite PS4 tournament this month at the Indian Games Expo 2018 (IGX 2018). The event is now in its fourth year and its organisers have partnered with PlayStation and Epic Games to make this possible. And while Fortnite is a 100-player battle royale game, this on-ground Fortnite PS4 tournament is limited to 25 players. The tournament will take place on November 24 and 25 at the Bombay Exhibition Centre in Goregaon which also serves as the venue for IGX 2018.

The overall winner of the inaugural Fortnite PS4 tournament will win a 500 Million Limited Edition PS4 Pro console in addition to the obvious bragging rights. Registrations for the Fortnite tournament will begin on November 17 on the IGX website. If Fortnite doesn’t interest you there will be tournaments around FIFA 19, WWE 2K19, Tekken 7, and Rainbow Six Siege to name a few.

Considering that Fortnite on PS4 is immensely popular in India (partly due to PUBG not being available for the console until December 7), it’s a smart move when you consider that other local events have shunned Fortnite in favour of the usual fare like Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Dota 2.

It’ll be interesting to see if Fortnite gets a mobile tournament in India too due to the widespread availability of smartphones. Though given Fortnite’s performance on Android devices, perhaps restricting it to the PS4 may be the right move.

Previously, Fortnite for Android, iOS, PS4, Xbox One, and PC got a new update that brings a new limited time mode called Food Fight. The Fortnite update 6.30 patch notes suggest that the Food Fight limited time mode has some elements in common with Splatoon 2 for the Nintendo Switch, what with Epic Games asking fans to choose between burgers or pizza on social media. In Fortnite Food Fight, two teams are on either side of the map. There’s a huge barrier down the middle. The objective is to build a fort to protect your restaurant mascot. When the barrier lowers, you’re tasked with destroying the enemy’s mascot to win. The Fortnite 6.30 update download size is around 152MB on iOS.

Karnataka Cabinet Expansion Will Happen This Month: State Congress Chief


In the earlier exercise on June 6, HD Kumaraswamy had inducted 25 ministers. (File)

Bengaluru: 

The much awaited expansion of the HD Kumaraswamy-led coalition cabinet in Karnataka will take place within this month, state Congress chief Dinesh Gundu Rao said on Wednesday.

Pointing out that JD(S) patriarch and former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda was out of town, Mr Rao said, once he was back, the issue would be discussed with him.

“It will be done this month itself,” he told reporters in Bengaluru. 

Congress general secretary in-charge of Karnataka K CVenugopal has already said it will happen, he pointed out.

The cabinet expansion and appointment of MLAs as heads of boards and corporations that was to take place in October was put on the backburner by the Congress-JD(S) coalition, asthe schedule for November 3 bypolls to two assembly and three parliamentary seats in the state was announced.

Several MLAs, especially those from the Congress, who are aspirants for minister’s post have been demanding that the expansion be taken up at the earliest.

Moreover, according to sources close to the legislators, many MLAs feel that this is the right time for cabinet expansion, with theCongress-JD(S)coalition winning two of the three Lok Sabha seats and both the assembly constituencies.

This would be the second expansion of the cabinet since the coalition came to power in May in a post-poll tie-upbetween Congress and JD(S).

Under the power sharing arrangement reached by the two parties, Congress will have 22 ministers and the JD(S) 12.

In the earlier exercise on June 6, HD Kumaraswamy had inducted 25 ministers, taking the ministry’s strength to 27.

However, the lone BSP Minister in the coalition cabinet N Mahesh, who was inducted from JD(S) side, had quit his post in October citing personal reasons, but said he would continue to support the ruling coalition.

There are now six vacant ministerial positions left for the Congress, and two for the JD(S).

The decision to expand the cabinet has come amid speculation that some disgruntled Congress MLAs were still being wooed by the BJP, besides reported factionalism within the party.

With growing number of aspirants and limited ministerial berths in hand, Congress was preparing a list of MLAs to be appointed as heads to boards and corporations, in an effort to prevent any kind of resentment, party source said.

The next gen Toyota Corolla will most likely make it to India sometime next year

Toyota has put out a teaser image of the 2020 Corolla sedan which is all set to make its debut at the Guangzhou International Automobile Exhibition in China on November 16. The new generation Toyota Corolla Sedan is set to take styling cues from its hatchback and wagon siblings in terms of design and will share mechanical bits too including engines and transmissions. The next generation Toyota Corolla will most likely make it to India sometime next year or in early 2020. 

Unlike the previous generation Toyota Corolla, this one gets an aggressive and sportier face as compared to its predecessors with a set of edgy headlamps and an angular Toyota family look grille. The new generation of the Corolla is likely to be longer than the previous generation and this will translate into more space inside as well. The new generation Corolla is also expected to get a little sportier from the rear with a more swooping roofline and a set of aggressive tail lamps. The interior will be completely redesigned with flatter dashboard and an upright large touchscreen for the infotainment cluster. In typical Toyota Corolla style, the instrument cluster will be analogue with a blue theme.

0 Comments

In terms of engines, the Toyota Corolla will have a 1.8-litre or 2-litre petrol engine while the diesel engine is expected to be the same 1.5-litre unit that is currently available in the car in India. Expect a CVT automatic version for the petrol along with a manual and only a manual variant for the diesel.

Waymo To Start Driverless Car Service In The United States Next Month


Waymo will first start this service in a very limited capacity in and around the Phoenix, Arizona area.

Waymo, an American mobility solutions company that is owned by Alphabet Inc, which is also Google’s parent compact has announced that it will be launching its first driverless car service next month in the United States. Waymo will first start this service in a very limited capacity in and around the Phoenix, Arizona area and will restrict it to a small number of pre authorised riders as a test case. The service when eventually be open to more people. Until now, Waymo has been very tight lipped about the program where it has used the likes of the all-electric Jaguar I-Pace as a test vehicle. 

As mentioned, the service will be restricted and thus there will be no publicly available app that will allow other people to access this service. The first set of passengers are most likely to be chosen from the Wamo Early Rider Program where a test group of nearly 400 families have been riding in Waymo test cars for nearly a year. These passengers will also be allowed to take along other people for the ride experience. The service will also not operate under the Waymo brand name but will take on a new name to take on the likes of Uber and Lyft – both of which are popular ride hailing services in the United States. 

0 Comments

Google first started working on a driverless car concept nearly a decade ago and the launch of the new service will be a culmination of Google and Waymo’s efforts. It will also be the first ever such operator in the world and effectively lead the race for driverless mobility solutions.
