Next Games on AR zombies, why Nazara is worth $550 million, and Nintendo shares hit a nine-year high

Arena of Valor is the big thing on the mobile market right now - it may not have hit the US just yet, but its effects are definitely being felt around the rest of the world.

Even Nintendo seems to be getting a boost from it, and saw its shares hit a nine-year high following the news that the game would be launched on the Switch, a story so fascinating that it was our most read of the week.

Second on our Hot Five is our look at Nazara Games and its potential IPO in order to answer a very important question - what makes it worth $550 million?

Zombies, charities and events

Third up, we chat to Next Games CMO Saara Bergström about the studio's upcoming augmented reality game The Walking Dead: Our World, and why they thought it would be cool to have zombies in your back garden.

And finally, SpecialEffect has signed up over 30 developers to donate money for its One Special Day event, and Johannes Heinze stops by to talk about the power of in-game events.
