Video Game Release Calendar Changelog: E3 2015 Table Setting Edition

releasecalendarupdate-header

Don’t Forget! This is just a changelog of recently announced release dates. Warp Zoned’s complete Video Game Release Calendar includes every title we could find with a 2015, 2016, 2017, or unannounced release date.

This edition of the Video Game Release Calendar Changelog is definitely focused on the pre-E3 table setting that happens every May. In addition to release dates for some of this Summer’s most-anticipated games (Lego Jurassic World on June 12, Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition on June 23, and Rory McIlroy PGA Tour on July 14) we were recently treated to release dates for some of this Falls big franchise titles (Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege on October 13, Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate on October 23, WWE 2K16 on October 27, and Call of Duty: Black Ops III on November 6).

Looking beyond the big names, we now know that Keiji Inafune’s Mighty No. 9 will be released on September 15 (though the 3DS and Vita versions will launch “sometime later”). But even the recent surprise announcements are focused on big names including Need For Speed and Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5, both of which will launch this Fall.

Finally, you can’t talk about release dates without mentioning a few delays. This time, Tom Clancy’s The Division was pushed back (to early 2016) alongside Mirror’s Edge 2 and the Ratchet & Clank remake (both will be available in Spring 2016). But Dead Island 2 got the worst delay of all, going from Spring 2015 all the way to TBA 2016.

But speaking of games that are far away, let’s end this roundup with Telltale’s Marvel Game, an untitled episodic adventure game that won’t be released until sometime in 2017. Hey, gotta get that announcement out there sometime.

Even more new release dates for this edition of the Video Game Release Calendar Changelog can be found after the break. (more…)

Samurai Warriors 4-II coming to PC, PS3, PS4, Vita on September 29

Koei Tecmo has announced they will release Samurai Warriors 4-II for the PC, PS3, PS4, and Vita on September 29.

Unlike the regional structure found in the original Samurai Warriors 4, this sequel/spinoff will focus on the individual heroes of the saga. In all, players will take control of 13 characters across the game’s 13 chapters including an all-new never-before-seen samurai. Other new features set to be added to Samurai Warriors 4-II include:

The game will feature many new and improved features as the battle, action, and character development systems have been revamped. It also introduces a highly challenging and richly rewarding mode called: the Endless Castle. Players can choose to enter and struggle to survive for as long as possible, or to play against the clock and see how far they can get up the castle’s increasingly difficult levels!

If you’re in London this weekend (May 22-24) for the MCM Comic-Con, a playable demo of Samurai Warriors 4-II will be available at Koei Tecmo’s booth.

The Witcher 3, Farming Simulator 15, Life Is Strange: Episode 3 added to PS Store

witcher3-header

Woo hoo Witcher man see how high he flies
Woo hoo Witcher man he got the moon in his eye

Nah, doesn’t have the right ring to it… Lyrical paraphrasing aside, CD Projekt finally added The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt to the PlayStation Store this week and the final adventure of Geralt of Rivia can now be explored in full. And explored, and explored some more, as The Witcher 3 is supposed to be an absolutely massive open-world RPG.

If hunting isn’t your thing, how about farming? Farming Simulator 15 is now available on the PlayStation Store for the PS3 and PS4 courtesy of publisher Focus Home Interactive. Farming Simulator 15 is said to feature a “brand new graphics and physics engine” for the most realistic farming ever and online multiplayer.

Also available this week is Life Is Strange: Chaos Theory (PS3, PS4), the third episode in Dontnod’s episodic adventure series. Max and Chloe have found even more “dark secrets” within the walls of Blackwell Academy and the pending apocalypse is closer than ever. Good thing Max can rewind time.

Finally this week, HyperDimension Neptunia U: Action Unleashed transforms the HyperDimension Neptunia franchise into a hack and slash brawler for the first time. The Vita game features “frenzies of enemies” and a “whirlwind” of special attacks.

More details on all of these games can be found after the break and a full rundown of this week’s new game add-ons and discounts can be found at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)

Shovel Knight PS3/PS4/Vita/Xbox One Review: Still Digging It

shovelknight-header

What a difference a year can make! This time last year, Shovel Knight was just a promising platformer that was still two months away from release. A lot of people backed its Kickstarter campaign and still more got their hands on it at PAX East, PAX Prime, and E3. We liked what we saw, but we had no idea just how good it would actually turn out to be.

So here we are in 2015. Shovel Knight made its debut last June and instantly won the hearts of gamers everywhere. Perfect review scores (including this one from us) piled up like the sacks of gold collected by the title character. Six months later, a gaggle of “Game of the Year” awards rained down from outlets across the Internet (including this one from us). So what does Yacht Club Games do for an encore? They put the exact same game on the PS3/PS4/PS Vita and the Xbox One and add a pair of platform-exclusive bosses. If you bought it last year, there’s no need to buy it again, but everyone else needs to fill the Shovel Knight-sized hole in their tool shed right now. (more…)
