We all remember that absolutely terrible attempt at a live-action Death Note film that arrived in 2017 and was soon forgotten, but it seems Netflix wants to right that wrong as a new report suggests a series is in the works.

According to Deadline, Halia Abdel-Meguid has been chosen to write and produce the live-action show which will be produced by Stranger Things’ creators the Duffer Brothers company.

There’s no shame in being skeptical about this show given that Death Note fans have been wronged by the streamer before, but for now we’ll just have to wait and see what comes out of this project.

Digimon World: Next Order is coming back, this time on new consoles

If you’re a longtime fan of Digimon who has been playing the franchise’s video games then you would have most definitely heard of Digimon World, and now Next Order is coming back after its initial release in 2016.

After its first release on PlayStation Vita back in 2016 and then eventual PS4 release a year later, now it is headed to Nintendo Switch and Steam for the first time — and there are some neat changes to enjoy.

When it arrives on Nintendo Switch, Digimon World: Next Order will include a new difficulty mode and higher pace movement to get around the map and work through the story. Digimon World: Next Order will arrive on Feb. 22, 2023.
