Humble Nindie Bundle brings “Pay What You Want” scheme to 3DS and Wii U for first time

Humble Bundle has been offering “Pay What You Want” bundles of PC and Android games for over five years now. But console gamers were never able to get involved… until now. Nintendo has partnered with Humble Bundle to offer the Humble Nindie Bundle and it features a ton of games:

Pay what you want and get Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition for the Wii U, Woah Dave! for the 3DS, and Might Switch Force! for the 3DS. Beat the average to unlock The Fall for the Wii U, OlliOlli for the Wii U and 3DS, and Moon Chronicles for the 3DS. If you pay $10 or more, you’ll unlock Stealth Inc 2 for the Wii U and SteamWorld Dig for the Wii U and 3DS. That’s a lot of Nintendo games! And even more titles will be added to the Humble Nindie Bundle next Tuesday, June 2.

All of these games are currently available through the Nintendo eShop for a combined price of $88, so being able to purchase them for as little as $1 is a deal that’ll never come around again.

Happy shopping, and don’t forget, the Humble Nindie Bundle will expire on Tuesday, June 9 at 2:00 PM (Eastern Time).

New trailer confirms Extreme Exorcism is also coming to PS3 and Wii U this year

Developer Golden Ruby Games is hard at work on Extreme Exorcism, an arena platformer where players have to bust a bunch of ghosts while avoiding attacks from their past lives. The premise alone should be enough to put it on your radar, but development is also coming along nicely as we awarded it a Best of PAX East 2015 badge earlier this year.

In fact, Extreme Exorcism was a huge hit with a lot of convention-goers, many of whom asked the developer to bring the game to the PS3 and Wii U in addition to its previously-announced destinations (PC, PS4, and Xbox One). As you might have guessed from the headline, Golden Ruby has granted their wish and released a brand new gameplay trailer to boot.

Extreme Exorcism will be available for all five platforms later this year, but it’ll likely be after this year’s E3 Expo as Golden Ruby plans to demo the game in Ripstone Publishing’s booth at the big show.

New Releases: Splatoon, ArcaniA: The Complete Tale

splatoon-header

If you plan to visit your local game shop this week, you’ll only find two new titles on the shelves, and both of them won’t be released until Friday.

This week’s big new release is Splatoon, Nintendo’s entry into the team-based shooter category. But instead of gruff military guys, Splatoon is populated by kids who have the ability to transform into squids. They use this power to literally paint the map and the object isn’t to get the most kills (though you can still do that), but to cover more of the floor with your team’s color. It’s a crazy idea, but if anybody can make it work, it’s Nintendo.

Also available this week is ArcaniA: The Complete Tale. The PS4 RPG is an enhanced remake of the PC/PS3/Xbox 360 game of the same name. In addition to prettier graphics and more detail environmental effects, ArcaniA: The Complete Tale also comes packaged with the game’s “Fall of Setarrif” expansion.

Be on the lookout later this week for posts detailing new games available on the PlayStation Store, Xbox Games Store, and Nintendo eShop. Both of these titles will be available to download alongside digital-only releases like Ultra Street Fighter IV, the fourth episode in Telltale’s Game of Thrones adaptation, and more.

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…)

Great Scott! This new Lego Dimensions trailer stars Back to the Future’s Doc Brown

Don’t be a butthead, watch this new Lego Dimensions trailer right now! Christopher Lloyd, old Doc Brown himself, headlines the video as we get a closer look at some of the game’s Back to the Future-inspired locales. A few of Batman’s greatest foes also show up to cause some mayhem (Bane and Two-Face) and get some laughs (The Joker and Harley Quinn).

Will we need roads where we’re going? Doc Brown doesn’t know, but he does know that WB Games also announced the following minifigure expansions for Lego Dimensions, which will join the previously confirmed Portal 2, Simpsons, and Doctor Who sets:

  • DC Comics Team Pack: The Joker and Harley Quinn
  • DC Comics Fun Pack: Superman
  • DC Comics Fun Pack: Aquaman
  • DC Comics Fun Pack: Bane
  • Back to the Future Fun Pack: Doc Brown
  • Lego Ninjago Fun Pack: Sensei Wu
  • Lego Ninjago Fun Pack: Lloyd

We don’t know exactly when each pack will make its way onto store shelves (as early as this Fall or as late as the first half of 2016), but we do that Lego Dimensions will be released for the PS3, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360, and Xbox One on September 27.
