Ahead of the official reveal of some new Pokemon news due out tomorrow was a leak of seven new Pokemon from the upcoming Pokemon Sun and Moon titles due out in November and they're receiving mixed reviews. While Verge wasn't a fan, Kotaku was a little less harsh. You can take a look at the latest Japanese trailer below ahead of the official translated version that should arrive tomorrow morning!
If you remember this iconic box art then you've been playing video games for a long time and the re-release for the Super Mario RPG has been a long time coming. The original game, released for the Super Nintendo System back in 1996, is finally getting a re-release for the Wii U virtual console. (with off screen support included) After the release came to Europe last year, gamers have been patiently waiting for news about the title to hit stateside and now it's officially on the Nintendo website. The title mirrors classic RPG's from the 90s with a top down view and turn based combat, closer to early Final Fantasy titles. The title will release for the Wii U June 30th!
More bad news for fans of the Batman game series as the latest title has been postponed indefinitely. According to WBgames, Virtuous games was not quite there in terms of quality for a rumored July release. The title would have featured remastered versions of both Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City. While we don't know when the title will be released, Telltale Games Batman title will be arriving on consoles in a 5 episode format this fall.
More Pokemon Sun and Moon news is on its way. After a pretty lackluster reveal at the Nintendo Treehouse event during E3, even more info is coming our way. What we'll see this time around is really up in the air considering the look at the demo, new starters, and new legendary types but possibly more new Pokemon like the rock type Iwanko or the cute Koala Pokemon picture above from a Corocoro scan. We'll know more come July 1st at 9am eastern time so stick around and get excited for even more Pokemon fun!
Anime fans rejoice, a popular series is making it's way to one of the best fighting franchises. In the form of some awesome costumer DLC for the Dead or Alive 5: Last Round title, the series Fairy Tail is making it's debut. The manga series has been running for nearly a decade with an anime series, multiple films, and OVA's to go along with it. Take a look at the new costumes in action, you can pick them up today for the PS4, Xbox One or PC for $31.99 or $2.99 for an individual costume!
Let me be frank when I say this, Warcraft the film is nearly unwatchable. I, somehow absolutely adored everything Duncan Jones did in the film but only because of my many years spent with the long running Blizzard franchise. If I had no prior knowledge of, well, anything happening in this film, I'd probably have laughed and left disappointed. Despite the very low reviews for the film nearly a decade in the making, Warcraft has gone on to break records in almost everywhere but stateside. As a matter of fact, it's now the highest grossing video game film of all time beating out Prince of Persia. This might not be terribly shocking considering at one point the MMO version of the PC title, World of Warcraft, boasted an incredible 10 million players world wide. The movie's beautiful to look at, regardless of some ridiculous moments and it's an amazing feeling to see these characters and units from the games up on the big screen but for new comers, the movies a bit convoluted. The future is uncertain for the film franchise due to the fact that Warcraft grossed $37 million in the U.S. and over $200 million in China. Whether we'll get to dive back in to one of the most popular franchise has yet to be seen but if you were a fan, (like I oddly was) then keep your fingers crossed.
A lot of interesting games were shown at E3 but one developer wants some sequels to some already popular titles. Co-founder of Platinum games studio, Hideki Kamiya, spoke to UK gaming site Metro about the possibility of continuing on the Bayonetta and Okami franchises. In regards to Bayonetta, Kamiya said "why should it end at 2," as well as "I've got ideas in my head of Okami 2!." He even spoke about 2017's highly anticipated dragon riding Scalebound, stating "We've got other Scalebounds in our heads too." Bayonetta 2 received critical acclaim and the character became popular enough to enter into the 4th installment of the Super Smash Bros franchise. Hopefully all of these games will be coming our way in the next few years but you can read more about Kamiya's comments in the interview here and look at the Scalebound multiplayer footage show at E3 below.
