Happy Wednesday, everyone. I hope you're all doing well, or at least a little better than Skull and Bones, as it's been announced that the title has been delayed yet again, this time into 2023.
Our other big stories included in this here roundup involve the reveal of a new Pokemon called Wiglett which is dividing social media and the reveal of EA and Koei Tecmo's Monster Hunter-esque title Wild Hearts. For more info on these stories and more, just read on.
Skull And Bones Delayed To March 9
It's probably quite unsurprising for some, especially since it was supposed to launch right before God of War: Ragnarok and on the same day as Sonic Frontiers, but Skull and Bones has been delayed yet again. Even worse, it's been pushed back all the way to March 9 next year, suggesting the delay isn't just because of release congestion. We may get to play the game before then though, as Ubisoft has also announced an open beta will take place "ahead of the game's worldwide launch."
New Pokemon That Looks Like Long Diglett Apparently Not Diglett
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet has been steadily showing us new 'mons that will be included in the game, and it's revealed yet another. However, this time it's a Pokemon that will feel pretty familiar to many, as Wiglett looks like your standard Diglett but a lot whiter and a lot longer. While many thought this may have been a Paldean form for Diglett, it has been confirmed that it's a completely brand new Pokemon with a separate evolution, so don't go expecting Wiglett to turn into Wugtrio.

We also found out that Wild Hearts is set to launch on February 27 next year for PC, Xbox Series X and PS5.
