Square Enix has announced that its free-to-play collection-based tactical RPG Dragon Quest Tact will be coming to the West on both Android and iOS. Back in February (2020), Square announced the game for Japan, and it would appear it was launched in July (2020) and has already racked up 500,000 installs. I suppose this success is the reason the game will soon come to new territories. While the English version isn't slated for a release until 2021, it's already available for pre-registration on the Google Play Store.
Last April, we learned that Electronics Arts would be bringing its games to Stadia, such as Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. At the time of this announcement, EA also stated that the Madden NFL series would be coming to the platform but never stipulated which entry in the series would be Stadia's first. Well, EA has finally decided to announce that this entry will be Madden NFL 21 and that it will be available on Stadia starting on January 28th. Even better, this launch will signal a free weekend that will end on the 31st, which should ideally allow any interested parties a lengthy look at the game without going out of pocket.

An early sales campaign has wrapped up for boutique tech accessory maker Mobvoi and its wireless Earbuds Gesture — the new wearables are now widely available for purchase in the U.S. and Europe direct from the company or on Amazon starting at $90.
It's often more difficult tracing the differences between old and new Chromebooks given their wild release schedule. For Acer's part, the all-new Chromebook Spin 514 is set to head to market alongside the Spin 513 — the company's first with Qualcomm Snapdragon 7c silicon — but towing AMD's 3rd-gen Ryzen mobile processors instead.
For some of you, an Android tablet might be all you need — maybe just with a few mode changes like a dock, a folio, maybe even a pen. Lenovo has catered to this very peculiar subset for a long time and it's doing so again for 2021 with its latest Tab P11.
Historically, Xiaomi has been a consistent contender to launch the first phones with next-generation Qualcomm silicon. It's taken the lead again this year by announcing its Mi 11 series of phones complete with the Snapdragon 888. With that new engine comes a cavalry of other upgrades.
Animal Farm is a satirical book from George Orwell that draws many parallels to society and its governments by focusing on the threat of a political dystopia on an animal farm, and the developer behind the well-received Reigns card game series is working in partnership with The Dairymen in order to bring a new game based on the book to mobile and PC. This game is appropriately called Orwell's Animal Farm, and it's being developed with the full endorsement of the Orwell estate in preparation for an official launch this fall.
