Moon Chronicles Gets North American Release Date

Moon Chronicles 3DS Release DateMoon Chronicles, an enhanced remake of Renegade Kid’s DS first-person shooter game Moon, is set to hit the 3DS eshop on 15 May in North America. The game will be released in episodic installments, with episode 1 being the largest and most expensive of the four part “season”, reportedly clocking in at 4 hours long and priced at $8.99.

The following episodes will be made available as DLC for $1.99 each and will have about 2 hours worth of gameplay per episode.

A full summary of Episode 1’s content has also been released by Renegade Kid:

Episode 1: One Small Step

Major Kane’s investigation quickly spirals into a desperate search for lost team members and the discovery of troubling evidence.

Bonus Mission: Tsukigami’s VR Training

Created by Captain Tsukigami to emulate the behaviors of alien hostiles; this mission helps you perfect your skills, while providing some intense first-person shooter action.

A second season is also planned for 2015 with ‘all-new story content’. Meanwhile Jools Watsham, co-founder of Renegade Kid, has stated that the first season will not be released in Europe until all episodes are finished.

Now that Episode 1 is approved, we’re working hard to finish the remaining episodes (2, 3, and 4) in one focused effort. Our plan is to submit the game to NOE when we have all episodes completed, so a confident release plan for Europe can be scheduled.

You can check out the trailer for the game below.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Official Trailer

Paramount Pictures have released an official trailer for their live-action adaptation of classic comic/cartoon series Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Check it out below.

The film is directed by Jonathan Liebman (Battle Los Angeles, Wrath of the Titans) and produced by Michael Bay – which probably won’t come as a surprise as the trailer definitely has a Transformers vibe about it, and not just because of the presence of Megan Fox as April O’Neil. The cast also includes Will Arnett as April’s ‘wise-cracking cameraman’ Vern Fenwick and William Fichtner as the Turtles’ nemesis Shredder. The turtles themselves are CGI creations filmed using motion capture technology.

The movie will hit cinemas in the USA on 8 August 2014 and the UK on 17 October.

New Trailer for Tom Cruise Sci-Fi Edge of Tomorrow

Warner Bros and Village Roadshow have released a new trailer for upcoming science-fiction film, Edge of Tomorrow. The movie, starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt, is based on Japanese novel, All You Need Is Kill by Hiroshi Sakurazaka.

The book’s title is certainly apt as the plot involves Cruise’s character, Lt. Col. Bill Cage, dying over and over again as he fights in a war against alien invaders known as Mimics. Cage discovers he is stuck in a time loop and with the help of Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Blunt) gradually becomes more skilled in combat, surviving a little longer each time. Cage’s ultimate aim is to break the cycle and find a way to defeat the invaders.

Edge of Tomorrow is directed by Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity, Mr. & Mrs. Smith) and also stars Lara Pulver, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Jeremy Piven, Bill Paxton, Charlotte Riley, and Jonas Armstrong. It will hit cinemas worldwide on June 6th 2014.

Assassin’s Creed: Unity Confirmed by Ubisoft

Ubisoft has released a short teaser trailer, comprised of alpha game footage, confirming the existence of Assassin’s Creed: Unity. The trailer also confirms that Unity will be set in Paris, which was suspected after screenshots of the game were leaked showing various famous locations from the French capital. Ubisoft stated that they “weren’t quite ready to show you our full vision for a next-gen only AC”, but presumably the leaks changed their minds. You can view the trailer for yourself below.

The game has been in the works for 3 years and will be released for Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC towards the end of the year. Another Assassin’s Creed game, subtitled ‘Comet’, is rumoured to be in the works for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360, but Ubisoft has not yet made an announcement regarding that title.

Keiji Inafune Still Hopes Mega Man Legends 3 Could Happen Someday

mml3Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune has revealed he still has desires to complete Mega Man Legends 3, the 3DS action RPG that was cancelled by Capcom in 2011 to the disappointment of many fans of the franchise. Talking to US Gamer, Inafune said:

If somebody asked, even right now, what’s the game you want to create most? It’s still Legends 3. I put so much effort into that game, so much passion into that game, but it didn’t happen. It’s always a regret in my mind. Even now…

We all know that’s not going to happen, though, as long as Capcom holds the IP. But if they asked me to make that game, I could still gather most of the original team, even right now. Some of them have quit Capcom, some of them are still at Capcom, but I believe that team would be passionate enough to come back together and create that game. So…we’ll see what’s going to happen. You never know.

Let’s say that, if we have all seven Dragon Balls right here, right now, and Shen Long comes up and says, ‘What’s your wish?’ My wish would be, give me all the right tools, people, and environment to create Legends 3.

Inafune has since moved onto other projects away from Capcom, including what many consider the spiritual successor to Mega Man, Mighty No. 9. However it would surely be to the delight of many fans if Inafune was to get his wish, although it remains a somewhat unlikely prospect.

Meanwhile, if you don’t feel like waiting around for Mega Man Legends 3, you can check out this trailer for Mighty No. 9 which was shown at this week’s Game Developer’s Conference.

Gauntlet Reboot Coming to Steam

Arcade classic Gauntlet is to get a reboot courtesy of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Arrowhead Game Studios. The game will be released on Steam this summer with full SteamOS support.

The game follows the hack and slash formula of the original Gauntlet, with the player able to choose from four familiar character classes – Warrior, Wizard, Valkyrie, and Elf, each having different strengths and weaknesses.

Gauntlet will be the first game in a new initiative from Warner Bros. – the WB Games Vault, a series of direct to digital paid games released across multiple networks based on existing Warner and Midway brands, as well as new IP.

David Haddad, Senior Vice-President of Digital Games at Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment explained the thinking behind the reboot:

With Gauntlet we combined the arcade style of the original game with an entirely new look and feature set that includes emergent, local and online four-player gameplay

Johan Pilestedt, CEO of Arrowhead Game Studios, added:

To us at Arrowhead, Gauntlet is one of the most defining games from our childhoods, and it’s amazing to be able to work with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment on a brand new version. Gauntlet is one of the original and best known video game properties and we are looking forward to creating a fresh, yet true to the original, take on a multiplayer masterpiece.
