New Releases: Fallout 4, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Starcraft II: Legacy of the Void, More


It is time. Bethesda is ready to open the Vault and unleash Fallout 4 on the world. The first-person RPG will be available for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One, and it’ll let players explore a post-apocalyptic New England and craft a new world to their heart’s content. And if that kind of openness and epicness doesn’t appeal to you, there’s always Super Mutants to shoot.

Bethesda has also partnered with Microsoft to offer a 1TB Xbox One + Fallout 4 Bundle in case you haven’t made your new-generation console decision yet.

Speaking of Microsoft, the consolemaker will also partner with Square Enix this week to exclusively launch Rise of the Tomb Raider for the Xbox One and Xbox 360. Lara Croft’s next adventure will eventually make its debut on the PC and PS4 in 2016, but for now, you’ll need to raid tombs and make insane archaeological discoveries on a Microsoft platform.

Stepping out of the past and rocketing into the future, this week will also see the release of Starcraft II: Legacy of the Void, the finale to Blizzard’s StarCraft II trilogy. Focusing on the Protoss, the standalone game will actually “unite the three races in the ultimate battle for survival against an ancient evil threatening all life in the universe.”

Finally this week, a pair of Wii U exclusives prove that Nintendo’s little corner of video gaming is still an interesting place to be. Nintendo themselves will publish Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival, a board game that is changed and shaped as Amiibo figures and Amiibo Cards are dropped into play. And NIS America will release Rodea: The Sky Soldier, another skybound adventure from Yuji Naka, the creator of Nights Into Dreams.

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

Nintendo will release Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival on November 13


Alright all you Amiibo Hunters… this one’s for you… on your marks… get set… go!

Nintendo has announced that Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival will be available for the Wii U on November 13. The minigame collection will carry a retail price of $59.99, but it’ll come packed with two Amiibo figures (Isabelle and Digby) and three Amiibo cards (Stitches, Goldie, and Rosie).

But wait, it gets better. Nintendo also has plans to release six more Animal Crossing-themed Amiibo figures in November. Things kick off on November 13 with the release of an Amiibo 3-Pack that features K.K. Slider, Reese, and Cyrus. Two solo figures, Tom Nook and Mabel, will also be available that day. Finally, Nintendo will release an Amiibo figure for the “fashionably late” Lottie on November 22.

The solo figures will be priced at the standard $12.99 rate, while the 3-Pack will set you back $34.99.

Interested Amiibo Hunters can get a good look at all six figures and the Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival bundle on Nintendo’s Twitter page.
