It took a little bit longer than usual, but we’re finally in the middle of the Fall gaming avalanche.
This week, gamers can look forward to Battlefield 4 (PC, PS3, Xbox 360), the next entry in DICE’s popular shooter series; Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag (PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360), the next entry in Ubisoft’s popular stealth series; and Sonic: Lost World (Wii U, 3DS), the next entry in Sega’s
sometimes anger-inducing popular platformer series.
Also available this week is…
- The Wii Fit U Fit Meter, Nintendo’s stylish exercise gizmo designed for the free downloadable version of Wii Fit U (which will also be available this week).
- The first wrestling game published under the 2K Games banner WWE 2K14 (PS3, Xbox 360).
- The console version of Angry Birds Star Wars (3DS, PS3, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360).
- The latest platformer starring Pac-Man, Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures (PC, Wii U, Xbox 360)
A complete list of this week’s new game releases can be found after the break. And remember to keep an eye on “New Releases,” because we’re just a little over two weeks away from the launch of two new consoles. (more…)
It’s a big week for Nintendo’s eShop. It’s like a stealthy intruder who sneaks up on you unsuspectingly, except instead of a blade to the throat or a judo chop to the back of the head, this ninja/assassin delivers a giant pile of new games into your arms. So let’s get to it…
The ninjas are covered by Batman: Arkham Origins (Wii U) and Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate (3DS). Both games chronicle the rise of The Dark Knight (albeit in different stories) and they’ll both be available to download tomorrow. Arkham Origins also features plenty of assassins, but Edward Kenway, The Assassin, will leap onto the Wii U this week. While Ubisoft has no plans to bring the game’s DLC expansions to the system, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag will be downloadable through your Wii U on Tuesday, October 29.
Also available on the 29th is Sonic’s first Wii U adventure, Sonic: Lost World The blue hedgehog’s latest game will also spin dash its way to the 3DS on the same day.
Finally, if you’re looking to download something today, Capcom has released the fifth game in the Phoenix Wright series, Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies. It’s not available in stores and is only available through the 3DS eShop.
More information on all of these games (and many others) is available after the break. (more…)
Sega has released a new Extended Cut trailer showcasing “The Deadly Six,” the sextet of supervillainous opponents that will challenge Sonic in Sonic: Lost World.
However, the trailer does deliver a little bad news as the Wii U and 3DS game will now be released in stores on October 29, a slight delay from its original October 22 release date.
PAX Prime 2013 opens in a few hours and Sega has revealed the four games they’ve brought to the Washington State Convention Center. If you’re going to be wandering the show floor today, you’ll get a chance to play Sega’s entire Fall lineup including Sonic: Lost World, which will be released this October exclusively for the 3DS/Wii U; Total War: Rome II, which will be available next week; Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse, which will also be available next week; Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F, which was added to store shelves and the PSN this week; and Heroki, a mobile game that will be released later this year. You’ll be able to find all of these games at Sega’s booth: #142/#242.
If you’re interested in the inner workings of Total War: Rome II, the development team at Creative Assembly is hosting a panel on Sunday, September 1 titled “History vs. Gameplay – Hey Creative Assembly, Where’s the Accuracy in My Pew Pew Shooter?” Sounds like a good time.
More details on all of Sega’s PAX Prime lineup is available after the break. (more…)
Sega has released a new trailer for Sonic: Lost World that showcases the hedgehog’s new powers (including the Power of Rock!). The trailer has also unveiled an October 22 release date for the 3DS and Wii U game, so mark your calendars now.
IGN has posted the first trailer for Sonic: Lost World, the Nintendo-exclusive next entry in the Sonic the Hedgehog series.
The trailer introduces “The Deadly Six,” a monstrous group of… well, monsters… that have begun to threaten Sonic’s animal friends. Naturally, the blue speedster has strapped on his red sneakers and is going to do his best to defend them. The video also reveals a few glimpses of gameplay footage, and Sonic: Lost World appears to be a mix of behind-the-back play and side-scrolling sections.
Sonic: Lost World is looking pretty good so far, and it will be available for the 3DS and Wii U later this year.
Nintendo President Satoru Iwata used this morning’s Nintendo Direct presentation to announce final release dates for a ton of upcoming Wii U and 3DS games. But Iwata also revealed a handful of new games, including the next Sonic the Hedgehog title, which will be released exclusively on Nintendeo platforms.
Right now, all we about Sonic: Lost World is that it’s “a new action-adventure platforming game” in the long-running series and that more information will be revealed just before the start of this year’s E3 Expo. The game is actually the first piece of a new partnership between Sega and Nintendo that will see the next three games in the Sonic series released exclusively on Nintendo platforms.
“The onetime rivalry between Mario and Sonic has grown into a friendship that has never been closer,” said Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime. “These announcements in conjunction with Sega demonstrate the commitment we have to bringing great games to the Wii U platform, and set the stage for our upcoming announcements at E3.”
