It may be filler, but it’s still canon dammit!

The story from Bandai’s One Piece: Ocean’s Dream actually became canon, albeit as a filler story arc, after being adapted into five episodes for the One Piece anime series.

One Piece today has 98 manga volumes

Episodes 220 to 224 were called the Ocean’s Dream arc and aired in 2005, two years after the game was released for PlayStation 2 in 2003.

Welcome to the Island of Shadows

You can visit the island using the dream address

Animal Crossing: New Horizons players have turned evil, recreating locations from Resident Evil Village on their islands.

This island is particularly notable, including locations like Castle Dimitrescu and Heisenberg's factory.

My home is my castle: The island includes the altar where Ethan Winters meets the House of Lords, Moreau's reservoir and an area filled with creepy dolls. The player's house has been converted into Castle Dimitrescu.

Resident Evil Island: It feels like Lady Dimitrescu could appear at any moment while you trundle around in the diminutive castle. Animal Crossing: New Horizons has played host to loads of fan tributes to other series, with Star Wars being a particularly popular motif.

FIFA 21 honours Youth Hero Kiyan Prince

Kiyan Prince would be 30-years-old if alive today

FIFA 21 has been updated, and has a new addition to its roster: EA has immortalized 15-year-old Kiyan Prince who was murdered outside his school in 2006.

He was attempting to break up a fight when he suffered a wound to his chest, and May 18th 2021 marks the 15th anniversary of his passing.

Digitally aged: Prince was a youth player for the EFL Championship club Queens Park Rangers when he was killed, and EA has created a digitally aged 30-year-old version of him as a tribute.

Special effects: EA enlisted the aid of special effects studio Framestore, who has worked on major motion pictures like Avengers: Endgame, as well as Prince's coaches to help ensure accuracy.

What was the only Shrek game made for the PlayStation 1?

SomeBODY once told me that Shrek was once lowpoly.

ANSWER: Shrek: Treasure Hunt!

It has been 20 years since the farting ogre turned Smash Mouth's All Star into the defining song of the new millennium. Since then, we have been subjected to a steady stream of Shrek games – most of which were not very good. And if you only had a PlayStation 1, your single choice of Shrek gaming glory was Shrek: Treasure Hunt.

Your goal was to collect food for a picnic with Princess Fiona by searching for grub and then completing a mini game to earn it. Inspiring, right? The only review we could find was from Games Master UK, which awarded it 29/100. Shrek: Treasure Hunt was developed by The Code Monkeys, most famous for blessing the world with The Simpsons Skateboarding so, well … what did you expect?
