Devolver Digital denies claims of ‘Fall Guys’ coming to Xbox Game Pass
Fall Guys may be coming to Xbox Game Pass, although the publisher Devolver Digital has refuted the claims.
The popular battle royale, which sees players competing in a variety of platforming gauntlets and challenges, may have been secretly confirmed to be coming to Xbox platformers, although it’s unclear whether that will be for PC, consoles, or both.
In Xbox Game Pass’ most recent Instagram post, one fan commented asking for Fall Guys to be added to the service, to which the official account responded: “It’s coming.”
However, publisher Devolver has said in a response to The Verge’s Tom Warren sharing the news, that the information is “incorrect” and that “there are no plans for Fall Guys to come to any form of Gamepass”.

Speculation of its arrival arose last week (January 12), when the Fall Guys Twitter account was spotted responding to the Xbox Game Pass account asking users to respond for gaming recommendations, causing fans to deduct that the game would be arriving on the service.
However, the Fall Guys Twitter account later refuted the rumours after numerous fans posed the question on its inclusion and whether the exchange was a tease of its arrival. In response, it stated: “No I just wanted to see what game lol.”
The game proved to be one of the most popular new releases of 2020, making Steam’s top 100 games of the year. Post-launch content has seen new modes and maps being added, as well as a sleuth of skins.
Most recently was a crossover with Doom Eternal, which saw the Doom Slayer available as unlockable in-game cosmetic, joining previous inclusions such as Sonic The Hedgehog and popular streamer, Ninja.

‘Pokemon GO’ Johto Celebration Event announced
A new Pokemon GO event has been announced for the lead-up to Tour Kanto, which will showcase the Johto region and its native Pokemon.
The event is scheduled to begin at 10am local time on January 26, continuing through to January 31 at 8pm local time. The Johto Celebration Event will include increased spawns, raids, new egg content, and exclusive field research goals.
Pokemon native to the Johto and Hoenn region will increase in number during the event, making them easier to catch for a brief time. These include Chikorita, Cyndaquil, Totodile, Aipom, and Snubbull. A Shiny Miltank has also been added, possibly in celebration of 2021 being the Year of the Ox.
Eggs found during the event will be more likely to produce Pichu, Cleffa, Igglybuff, Wooper, Smoochum, and Larvitar. All of these have been confirmed to appear in 5km eggs.
Event-exclusive field research will include tasks that reward players with Stardust and lead to encounters with Johto region Pokemon. There will also be a Collection Challenge that will reward dedicated players with 15 Poke Balls, 10 Ultra Balls, and an Incense.
One-star and rhree-star raids will feature native Pokemon, including Togetic and Skarmory, with Five-star raids exhibiting legendary beasts. Entei, Raikou, and Suicune will all be appearing at different times.
Elsewhere in Pokemon news, a Nintendo Switch remake of Pokemon Diamond And Pearl is rumoured for announcement in February according to Pokemon Centre. A Nintendo Direct has also been speculated for February 27, which means this could be the day Pokemon Diamond And Pearl gets an official announcement.
