After laying the seeds of their cinematic universe with last year’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad, and this Summer’s Wonder Woman, Warmer Bros. is finally ready to open their Justice League film this week. Naturally, NetherRealm Studios has created new gear for Injustice 2 to tie-in with the theatrical event.
Players on all platforms will be able to tackle new challenges in the Multiverse for a chance to unlock Justice League-inspired looks for Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg, and The Flash.
A new trailer showcasing some of this Gear (alongside a few clips from Justice League) has been embedded above.
Telltale Games has announced that Batman: The Enemy Within‘s third episode will be released on November 21. Episode 3: Fractured Mask raises the stakes yet again for the Dark Knight, who has to infiltrate a shadowy criminal organization:
After an unexpected reunion, Bruce finds his attention (and his loyalties) stretched in yet another direction. Now, in addition to brokering a power struggle between Commissioner Gordon and Amanda Waller, Bruce must balance romantic entanglements with his mission to infiltrate the Pact. As he plunges deeper into the criminal underworld, the villains’ plan starts to come into focus, but will his deceptions take a dire toll?
Like previous episodes in the series, Batman: The Enemy Within – Episode 3: Fractured Mask will be available to download on the PC, PS4, Xbox One, and mobile devices.
Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey, PUBG, Persona, Horizon: Zero Dawn nominated for “Game of The Year” at 2017 Game Awards
The unprecedented success of the Nintendo Switch has been THE story of 2017, and not surprisingly, Nintendo’s latest console is well represented among the nominations for the 2017 Game Awards.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey received six nominations apiece, and both will be competing for “Game of the Year.” PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, Atlus’s Persona 5, and Guerrilla’s Horizon: Zero Dawn (which also received six total nominations) were also nominated for the prestigious award.
A grand total of 102 games and individuals were nominated for at least one award as part of this year’s ceremony, and several games are looking to take home a lot of hardware including Destiny 2 (six nominations), Studio MDHR’s Cuphead (five nominations), and Bethesda’s Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus (four nominations).
The Game Awards will be held on December 7 at 9:00 PM (Eastern Time), and fans can watch the show through their favorite video streaming service or at TheGameAwards.com. The full list of nominees can be found after the break. (more…)
Niantic’s Pokemon Go turned the mobile gaming world upside down last year, as millions of players tried to “catch ’em all,” and escape to the wilderness to chase Pokemon hiding out in the real world. Yesterday, the developer announced their next augment reality game for mobile devices, and I think it’ll likely make an even bigger splash with the gaming public.
In Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, players will get the chance to “go on adventures, learn and cast spells, discover mysterious artifacts, and encounter legendary beasts and iconic characters as they explore real-world neighborhoods and cities across the globe.”
“At Niantic, our goal is to leverage technology to create real world experiences that help people to discover the wonderful, and often magical parts of the world around them,” said Niantic’s CEO, John Hanke. “The beloved Harry Potter stories have captured imaginations worldwide for more than 20 years and soon we’ll turn the fantasy into augmented reality, allowing fans and their friends to become wizards and witches.”
Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will be the first title published by Portkey Games, a new division within WB Games devoted to creating video games based on characters and locations from J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World. So you can expect more Harry Potter games to be announced in the not-too-distant future.
More information on Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will be announced in 2018.

After months of teasing and at least one major delay, Nintendo has finally offered up the first details on Animal Crossing Mobile. Officially known as Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, the free-to-play game will be available to download for iOS and Android devices in late November.
And we learned quite a bit more about the game during a special Nintendo Direct presentation that Nintendo delivered to fans late last night:
Manage Your Manager: When you start a new game in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, you will be asked to create your personalized campsite manager avatar – your character in the game. You can choose to be a girl or a boy, and customize things like skin color, hair color and eye color. Whatever suits you!
Arts & Crafts: By gathering resources like fruit and wood, you can craft items for your campsite. These include furniture and decorative items, like couches and benches, as well as baskets and plants. To craft items, just speak to classic Animal Crossing villager Cyrus to put in an order. After the item is finished, you can place it around your campsite or decorate the interior of your camper.
Leaf Tickets: Leaf Tickets can be earned through regular gameplay or purchased using real-world money, and can be used in a variety of ways in the game. For example, they can be used to shorten the time needed to craft items, more easily acquire materials or acquire unique camper exterior designs.
Friendship Level: In Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, you can chat with your animal friends or fulfill their requests to raise your friendship level. If you level up your friendship or decorate your campsite with an animal’s favorite items, she or he might pay you a visit.
BHFF (Best Human Friends Forever): Not all of your friends in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp will have fur or feathers. You can send your in-game Player ID to real-life friends who also own the game to have them visit your campsite. Random player avatars will also visit the campsite from time to time. Once someone visits, you can exchange your Bells for items saved in the Market Box.
Tick Tock: Similar to past Animal Crossing games, time passes in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp just like in real life! As morning, day, evening and night pass, the scenery in the game will change and different animal friends might show up.
Area Map: Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is full of places to visit and explore. In addition to your campsite, you can travel in your camper to a beach, a forest, a river and an island.
Market Place: The go-to spot for shopaholics, Market Place is full of stores run by familiar Animal Crossing characters like Timmy, Tommy and the Able Sisters. The various shops in Market Place offer things like furniture and clothing items. The selection at each shop rotates, so don’t be a stranger!
OK Motors: Remember that camper that was mentioned a few bullets back? It’s not used to just travel between locations in the game. By visiting the OK Motors store, you can acquire things to customize your camper, including furniture to fill the interior and paint to decorate the exterior. It’s like those tiny homes that are all the rage … but with wheels!
Expanding Camp Life: In addition to all the fun things you can do in the game, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp will eventually offer seasonal events to keep the experience fresh and surprising, as well as limited-time furniture and outfit options through game updates. These events and updates will begin rolling out after launch.
You can learn more about Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp by visiting the game’s official website.
