Capcom announces new Dungeons & Dragons games, Mega-Man game might be in the works

Gamer Informer

During the “World of Capcom” PAX East panel, Brett Elston from Capcom made the announcement that a new Mega-Man game is on the horizon; however, later a rep explained “‘there are still discussions going on about [Mega Man] and that we won’t announce anything until something is ready. We have not confirmed there is a MM game yet'” (Destructoid). But come April 25th and May 16th, Mega-Man 4 and Mega-Man 5 will release on the 3DS eShop.

Additionally, Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara is scheduled to release in June. The game is a refined and remastered version of two games, Tower of Doom and Shadow Over Mystara,  which will be available for PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii U.

The much anticipated installment of Ubisoft’s popular franchise, Assassin’s Creed III, will be releasing in exactly two weeks (October 31st for EU). Though like myself and for other PC gamers, we must wait until November 20th (NA) or November 23rd (EU) for the release unfortunately. Today marks a new trailer for the title which highlights the multiplayer aspect of the game. It also introduces a new feature of the area by incorporating co-op multiplayer assassinations. Check out the details below.

Injustice: Gods Among Us out April 2013

Trine 2 to receive Goblin Menace DLC in the fall

Trine 2 will be receiving a DLC titled Goblin Menace. The brand new DLC like most DLCs will expand on the gameplay of the original game by introducing new levels along with skills available for the three classes. Check out the reveal trailer below for this new expansion which will hit in the fall for just Steam and Wii U (Trine 2: Director’s Cut). Eventually, the DLC will probably make it to the PS3 and Xbox 360, but there’s still no word on that, the release date, and price. Whatever the release date or the price may be, it looks wonderful in the vivid screenshots and is probably well worth the wait.


Darksiders II gets one last trailer

Darksiders II has released its final trailer before its launch date of August 14th. Check it out below along with another recent trailer.

NBA 2K13’s Xbox 360 and PS3 receives special Dynasty Edition

NBA 2K13 is available in Dynasty Edition now. You can pre-order the Dynasty Edition for $99.99 and it includes the following:

  • The game
  • New NBA 2K13 All-Star add-on content
  • A full-sized Spalding basketball

Amazing Spider-Man will release later on PC

For some reason and with no explanation at all, Activision’s The Amazing Spider-Man game will arrive on PC in August. The game will be over a month late compared to the launch for the Xbox 360, PS3, 3DS, DS, and Wii versions that will hit stores this Friday. Perhaps the halted launch is due to The Amazing Spider-Man being available on Steam on August 10th, oh and with Steam Achievements. Who knows, hopefully they’ll be be enhancing the game and making it the best it should be, at least that’s what I’d like to think whenever there’s a PC game version release date delay. It seems inevitable that most PC releases get hit with the delay bug. However, the Spider-Man game has been compared to Batman: Arkham City, which is a pretty nice statement.

Until the PC release, you can always watch the film that appears in theatres on July 3rd next week.

UPDATE: You can join the final beta test scheduled July 20th to the 22nd. Those who pre-ordered the game can also join in it.

Konami to release Castlevania: Lords of Shadow sequel; possible full game reveal soon

*article taken from Eurogamer*

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 will launch on Wii U, PlayStation 3, Vita and Xbox 360, according to a new report.

Paul Gale, he who first reported on PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, also offered more information on the leaked Nintendo 3DS game Castlevania: Mirror of Fate.

Mirror of Fate is a 2D Castlevania game that has been in development for a year-and-a-half, and features two playable characters and co-op play. It uses the 3DS’ forward-facing camera as a mirror and the outward facing camera for puzzle solving.

Apparently a Wii U version, which interacted with the 3DS version, was in the works before Konami ditched it in favour of a Wii U version of Lords of Shadow 2.

The Wii U version of Mirror of Fate would have been the same game as the 3DS version, with the tablet controller’s touch screen acting as the bottom 3DS screen and your telly acting as the 3DS’ top screen. You were able to use the Wii U’s forward facing camera as a mirror to “capture your reflection and reveal your fate”.

Now, though, Wii U owners will have to settle for a “safer” port of Lords of Shadow 2, which could retain some of the planned connectivity with Mirror of Fate. Both games are being made by Spanish developer MercurySteam and will be unveiled at E3 next month.”
