During Capcom Cup 2017, a new announcement was made, The Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection will collect 12 arcade games in the series from the original to 3rd Strike, complete with ranked and unranked online.

 

This will come to all major systems and PC in May.

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of one of the world’s most popular video game series of all time, Capcom has announced the ultimate tribute to the Street Fighter arcade legacy in the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and Windows PC coming in May 2018. The collection highlights the series’ past in this anthology of 12 iconic titles with arcade-perfect balancing, including the original Street Fighter, Street Fighter II, Street Fighter II: Champion Edition, Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting, Super Street Fighter II, Super Street Fighter II: Turbo, Street Fighter Alpha, Street Fighter Alpha 2, Street Fighter Alpha 3, Street Fighter III, Street Fighter III: 2nd Impact and Street Fighter III: Third Strike.

Players will be able to take the fight online in four of the classic titles for even more gameplay options, including Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting, Super Street Fighter II: Turbo, Street Fighter Alpha 3 and Street Fighter III: Third Strike. Players can recreate the classic arcade gaming experience by competing against the CPU while waiting for friends in online battles where they can put their fighting skills to the ultimate test. Lobbies support up to four players waiting to climb up the ranks through Ranked Matches. Each title will also have their own Global leaderboards and the “rewind” tech ensures low-latency online battles.

With the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection, fans can re-visit historic moments from the series, including the introduction of two of gaming’s most famous heroes – Ryu and Ken in the original Street Fighter, and explore the timeline of events that helped create one of the world’s leading fighting game series. Fans can take a walk down memory lane in the Museum and view stunning pieces of concept art, scroll through character bios and uncover little known facts behind each game release with an interactive timeline. Audiophiles can also sit back and relax while listening to the most memorable Street Fighter tunes in the Music Player.

 

This is already a must buy and a very beefy collection. Kudos to Capcom!

Legrand Legacy, the nostalgic love letter to classic JRPGs from publisher Another Indie and developer SEMISOFT, will arrive on Steam for Windows on January 24, 2018. Legrand Legacy will release on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in Q1 2019.
In the war-torn land of Legrand, a slave named Finn will rise from humble roots to possibly becoming a savior. After Finn exhibits powers beyond his control in the gladiator arena, an old man buys his freedom. Together they journey to save the man’s daughter, which leads them to a prophecy and a greater quest: to save Legrand from the second coming of a conflict that nearly destroyed the world in times long past.
Despite the looming darkness, Legrand is a thriving realm depicted in an art style delicately balancing eastern and western oil paintings. As Finn explores the beautiful world of Legrand he will learn the backstories of allies, uncover side quests, go fishing, and engage in fencing competitions in addition to intense hack and slash battles.
Exploiting enemies’ weaknesses and unleashing powerful attacks is key for victory. Craft weapons and unlock new magic abilities as the enemies become fiercer. When the stakes are at their highest, take to the battlefield with an army and conquer foes in tactical warfare.
By recruiting citizens of Legrand to join his party, Finn can upgrade his headquarters, Dumville Castle. As his party expands, Finn gains the services of blacksmiths, shopkeepers, and others that aid his journey. Can Finn and his companions gather the strength they’ll need before the world falls to its impending doom?
Legrand Legacy is packed with callbacks to classic JRPGs, from the modern take on original PlayStation style graphics to music, gameplay and mini-games,” says Iain Garner, Director of Developer Relations, Another Indie. “Most importantly, the story is the kind of epic RPG fans crave.”
 
Legrand Legacy will be available on PC via Steam for $24.99 USD. It will have language support for English, Japanese, Mandarin Chinese, Korean and Russian. The game was successfully Kickstarted by 1,000 backers on January 18, 2017, surpassing its goal of £40,000 (more than $53,000 USD).
 
For more information, please visit the official website, join the Another Indie Discord or follow Legrand Legacy on Facebook and Twitter.

Now this is a game that looks exciting.  Indie games are getting more and more ambitious and this one looks to be pushing boundaries for indies. Hopefully it will be a success.

“Hello and welcome back to the Aperture Science computer-aided enrichment center.”

We welcome all lucky applicants to Bridge Constructor Portal with our new vehicle-based test chambers, Quantum Tunnels and patented Aperture technology!

For the last year we’ve been secretly working in our underground labs on the next iteration of the million-selling Bridge Constructor series. This new stand-alone title will release on PC, MacOS, Linux, mobile devices, and console, and fully embraces the Portal license, one of the most beloved video game franchises of the last decade.

Bridge Constructor Portal will blend the laws of structural engineering and technology straight from Aperture Laboratories into an exciting new game experience, all under the demanding gaze of GLaDOS.

 

Bridge Constructor Portal will be released on December 20 2017 for Windows, MacOS and Linux as well as for mobile devices. The console versions will follow in early 2018.

“If you’ve been paying attention the solution should be obvious. As the case may be… good luck!”

This was certainly unexpected. A crossover between Bridge Constructor and Portal was not one of the games we would have seen coming. Still, there is a lot of potential here.
