Scalebound’s director, Hideki Kamiya, also took to Twitter to express how sorry he is about the game being cancelled, but he promises to work extra hard on Platinum’s upcoming projects. NieR: Automata comes out in March and Platinum also has two other announced games, Granblue Fantasy Project Re:Link, and Lost Order. Both games are yet to be announced for the west, but look/seem promising.
Bioware announced in a blog post, today that Mass Effect: Andromeda will be released on March 21st in North America, March 23rd internationally. March is looking pretty crowded with game releases at the moment.
Mass Effect: Andromeda will be available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
Another year down, more video games to countdown. There was plenty to play in the year of 2016, but unfortunately I cannot play them all. Here are 5 of my most definite favorites though. Lets start with some honorable mentions:
Street Fighter V: Street Fighter V just missed the cut because it got off to a rough start. It got pushed out to the public a bit early and ultimately was an unfinished product. Capcom has been working hard to fix some of the issues with it and its now shaping up to be a pretty great game. The future of Street Fighter V is looking bright.
Dark Souls 3: I’ve never been that big of a fan of this series, but I was able to have quite a bit of fun with DS3. It wont make me like the Souls games over Bloodborne though. Still hoping a sequel will be made.
And the FINAL honorable mention goes to Final Fantasy XV. FFXV is a fantastic game, but it left more to be desired from me. We do know that Square-Enix has future DLC plans for the game, which is exciting.
Happy first weekend of Summer, and it is a hot one! I hope you are able to get plenty of gaming in this weekend.
I will be playing some competitive Overwatch. The mode recently launched in Public Test Realm. I played a few games earlier and lost all 3. Hopefully I can win the last 7. Trails of Cold Steel will also be played and Tokyo Mirage Sessions just arrived in my mailbox today. I will probably play the first hour or so just to see how it is.
If you’re into fighting game tournaments, the big CEO tournament is happening in Orlando this weekend and it should be pretty good. Games like Street Fighter V, Super Smash Bros, MKX, Guilty Gear, and many more will all be featured.
That’s enough about me, what about you? What are you playing this weekend?
The third campaign will feature Specter Knight, a boss in the original Shovel Knight campaign. There is no word on when the DLC will be available, but Yacht Club Games says to expect it “sooner than the wait between Shovel Knight and Plague Knight.”
More DLC is in development as well. The King Knight, Body Swap, and Battle Mode will be available at some point in the future. All DLC will be 100% free.
We’re creating two new Shovel Knight campaign updates! Specter is cool and King Knight rules. Here he is in action! pic.twitter.com/tkIwxcA2Xy
Bioware really didn’t have anything to show off for the upcoming sci-fi epic. They say that we will get more information this fall so look forward to that.
The new trailer is nice though. It really gives you the feel that Bioware is really going back to the roots of Mass Effect when it comes to exploring. There are even a couple of scenes featuring the Mako! That’s enough to get me excited, really. Check out the trailer below.
Mass Effect Andromeda is expected to launch March of 2017.
Nintendo didn’t really bring much to E3 this year. They did not have a proper press conference so this year all of the focus was put into their Nintendo Tree House segment. A great deal of time was spent showing off the next Zelda game and it is impressive. Check out the 30 minutes of game-play below followed by the official trailer.
The wait is almost over. Tokyo Mirage Session #FE drops next Friday. Nintendo released a new gameplay trailer today. It shows off some of the battle system along with a little bit of dungeon crawling, and some cut-scenes. Check it out below.
