Capcom tweeted out saying "Here comes a new Anniversary. Cheers to 35 years of epic fights, fireballs and iconic rivalries!" It's to celebrate 35 years of Street Fighter. I remember playing Street Fighter 2 when I was a kid and it's nice that it's standed the test of time. And if you really want to see people who are really enthusiastic about fighting games, you should check out Maximilian_DOOD on Twitch and YouTube. He does a lot of coverage of fighting games. The next bit of news for today is Forza Horizon 5 has now hit 15 million players one month after release, which is pretty damn impressive. It's nice to see that the game is doing so well. If you're enthusiastic about racing games and so on, check out Forza Horizon 5, if you haven't already. If you've got Xbox Game Pass, you might actually already have the game available to download so you can just download it and try it out. And then the last bit of news for today is Take Two Interactive have acquired Zynga. Zynga is the mobile game maker responsible for games like Farmville as well as many others in a deal worth $12.7 billion or something like £9.5 billion. And what they're going to do is they're going to take a hold of all of the Take Two mobile games under the Zynga banner. The Zynga name is not going to disappear. They're going to absorb everything that is Take Two, but it's ultimately going to be owned by Take Two. It's a good thing. I think it's a good thing. Hopefully, it will push both companies and excel both because I personally actually am a fan of mobile games. People might have this perception that mobile games are full of pay to win and so on. But mobile games have moved on a lot since then, so they might be worth checking out. I am definitely enthusiastic about this acquisition.
