New Releases: Just Cause 3, Rainbow Six Siege, Xenoblade Chronicles X, More


Three big games will be available in stores this week, including the long-awaited continuation of the Xenoblade series and the return of Rico Rodriguez.

That’s right, everyone’s favorite high-flying secret agent is back in Just Cause 3 for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Taking place on a “Mediterranean island paradise,” developer Avalanche Studios has promised that players will get to experience “complete vertical freedom” during their adventure with the ability to skydive, BASE jump, and free dive throughout the game’s open world.

Also available this week is Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Teams of five will use tactical strategies to either defend their base or break into it in a new “Infiltrate versus Fortify” style for the operatives versus terrorists series. The oft-forgotten Wii U gets a chance to shine this week too as Nintendo’s console is almost home to Xenoblade Chronicles X, another entry in their popular sci-fi RPG series. This time around, Players will be able to ride a personalized mechs called Skells and join online squads to battle massive bosses.

It’s not a new game, but a stealth re-release of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas will also be available in stores for the PS3 this week.

Finally, Microsoft will release the Xbox One 1TB Elite Bundle this week, which includes a 1TB Solid State Hybrid Drive for faster access times and an Elite Wireless Controller. But more power requires a bigger credit card as Microsoft has priced the Xbox One 1TB Elite Bundle at $499.99.

A complete rundown of this week’s new releases can be found after the break. (more…)

Vblank announces Shakedown Hawaii, a 16-bit sequel to Retro City Rampage

Two weeks ahead of this year’s PlayStation Experience, Vblank Entertainment has announced Shakedown Hawaii, a sequel to Retro City Rampage. Set to be released for the PS4 and Vita sometime in the “to be announced” future, the game will be playable on the show floor at Sony’s big showcase. Developer Brian Provinciano teased a tiny bit about Shakedown Hawaii, which will have a 16-bit art style, on the PlayStation Blog:

Shakedown Hawaii brings the Vblank open world universe into the 16-bit era, powered up with destructible environments and an arsenal of supercharged weapons. Taking place some thirty years after the events of Retro City Rampage, the game follows The Player as he comes out of early retirement to rebuild his neglected corporate empire.

The footer of the official Shakedown Hawaii website confirms that the game will also be available for the PC (via Steam) and at least one unnamed Nintendo platform.

Nintendo Download: Mario Tennis Ultra Smash, Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon, Typoman, more


Two games from Nintendo themselves highlight this week’s Nintendo Download.

Tennis anyone? Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash will be available to download tomorrow through the Wii U eShop. Players will be able to serve it up with Mario and all his pals once more with brand new moves (the Jump Shot), new powerups (the Mega Mushroom), and new modes (the randomness of Mega Battle).

Over on the 3DS eShop, players will be able to download Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon, a new entry in the dungeon-crawling franchise, beginning tomorrow. The roguelike game will include 20 playable Pokemon, and all 720 Pokemon will play a role in the story.

Finally this week, two other interesting retro-style games are now available to download on the Wii U. Super Street Fighter II Turbo Revival is a Virtual Console re-release of the Game Boy Advance remake of the Super NES port of the arcade classic. That’s a mouthful, but it’s also a pretty good version of one of the best one-on-one fighting games of all time. Also available today is Typoman, a side-scrolling adventure that requires players to lift and shift letters to advance.

More information on all of these games (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break. (more…)
