Bioware's highly-anticipated sci-fi RPG Mass Effect: Andromeda, will depict humanity colonising the Andromeda Galaxy. That's according to a leaked survey from developers Bioware, posted on a video game forum.
The survey suggests that the plot will differ hugely to that of the first three Mass Effect games (2007-2012), in which humanity and other alien races of the Milky Way were confronted by a race of ancient mechanical lifeforms called the Reapers.
Nintendo's social networking app Miitomo is now available for download in the UK, US and wider Europe. The app is the first product of Nintendo's partnership with mobile developer DeNA, which it announced roughly in mid-March 2015.
