SNK released the following announcement via the PlayStation Blog

 

We at SNK know how excited fighting game fans are during EVO. To celebrate, together with SIEA Third Party Production, we’re pleased to announce that our next game to hit PlayStation Store will be the legendary Neo Geo classic Garou: Mark of the Wolves on both PS4 and PS Vita — with cross buy support!

This upcoming version, developed with Code Mystics, Inc., will once again have cross play functionality and of course online multiplayer as well.

25th Anniversary of the Fatal Fury Series

Some fans may ask why we’re announcing our latest PlayStation game at this time. When we asked the PlayStation Nation which Neo Geo classic they would like to see most on PSN, there were a huge number of fans who voted for Mark of the Wolves. Additionally, the beloved Fatal Fury series celebrates its 25th anniversary.

For the staff here at SNK, there was little hesitation in this decision.

Gallery Mode and Sound Test Features

Both the PS4 and PS Vita versions will feature an illustrious Gallery Mode, where you’ll be able to unlock many stunning pieces of Mark of the Wolves and Fatal Fury series art through gameplay.

Furthermore, Garou’s original soundtrack will be available to sample in the game menu. We want you to feel the real Garou / Fatal Fury fever along with your memories of the Neo Geo system.

High-quality Netcode

For this title, we at SNK have decided to adopt Code Mystics’ proprietary netcode once again, which was used on our previous Neo Geo classic The Last Blade 2 and received praise from both fans and the press. The team in Vancouver is doing a fantastic job on Garou’s online multiplayer, giving new life to a legendary fighting game classic and ensuring the online gameplay brings SNK fans and series newcomers a great experience similar to the good ol’ days in the arcades.

We’ll be sure to come back with more information on Mark of the Wolves and other upcoming releases from SNK. Please stay tuned for more announcements on PlayStation.Blog!

This is great news. Garou MOTW was a legendary fighting game and fans have been clamoring for a sequel for years. Regarded as one of the greatest games ever made by SNK, this will be a must buy for any Playstation 4 or PlayStation Vita owner.

No GravatarKoei Tecmo has announced that their upcoming game based on the Manga and Anime series Berserk, will launch this fall in the western markets, which should be reassuring to those worried it would be a long wait.

 

Here is some information from their new website

 

 

Slash and Smash Action!

In this work, the action of cutting through hundreds of enemies, fundamental to the Warriors series, is fused together with the dark and gruesome atmosphere of the world of “Berserk“, making various heretofore unseen acts possible, such as using a giant man-sized sword to cut enemies in half, as well as smash or send them flying with the “Cleaving” and “Smashing” attacks.
Revel in the astounding destructive power capable of cutting through multiple enemies with one blow!

Extensive and Profound Story!

In this game, in addition to the well-known and popular “Golden Age Arc”, you will also be able to join Guts and his newest companions on his journey of revenge through “The Hawk of the Millennium Arc”.
Additionally, the extensive story includes an impressive amount of artwork, including footage from the actual animation movie trilogy and new, original scenes portraying more detailed interactions between the members of the Band of the Hawk and other characters.

Diverse Character Selection!

In addition to the main hero of the story, Guts, you can choose to play as any of a number of characters from all the different parts of the story. Every one of these characters possesses a distinctive set of skills and characteristics to ensure the variety of gameplay is consistent with the world of “Berserk“.

Furthermore, to deepen immersion into the story, the same familiar cast of voice actors from the movie trilogy and the new animation series were invited to take part in this project.

? Story

The Golden Age Arc

This story is set in a time of chaos, in a land where the Midland Kingdom and the Chuder Empire have been locked in a widespread war for over one hundred years.

During one battle, a lone mercenary, Guts, attracts the attention of the mercenaries of the Band of the Hawk, and is ambushed by some of them on the road.

After losing in a duel to the leader of the Hawks, Griffith, Guts is forced to join their band, where he acquires many new comrades, including a woman named Casca, a Unit Commander in the band.

With Guts fighting as the Raiders Captain, the Band of the Hawk continues to come off victorious in all of their battles, and finally earns recognition from the King of Midland himself.

Fighting now under the Midland banner, the Band raids a castle occupied by a legendary swordsman and rumored immortal named Nosferatu Zodd. Zodd defeats both Guts and Griffith, but in the last moment he notices the Crimson Behelit that Griffith wears around his neck, and leaves without killing them.

The Band of the Hawk continues to gain fame on the battlefield, and in the end, using only 5000 men fighting with their backs to the river, manages to capture the impregnable Fortress of Doldrey. This victory brings the end to the war between Midland and Chuder.

Though Guts is praised as a hero, he chooses to leave the Band. He believes that only in doing so will he become worthy of being a friend to Griffith. The shock of Guts’ leaving forces Griffith’s hand, and he spends the night in the Princess’s chambers. As a result, the King of Midland, furious, throws Griffith in the dungeon and gives orders to hunt down the Band of the Hawk as traitors of the state.

A year later, Guts, having learned of the troubles of the Band of the Hawk, rushes back to help the outlawed remnants of the Hawks rescue Griffith. However, they are too late. All the torture had left Griffith in a condition that allows for no hope of recovery. And it is this despair that activates the Crimson Behelit…

To fulfil his own ambition, Griffith chooses to be reborn as “Femto”, one of the Five Angels…

and offers in exchange the lives of his devoted comrades and followers, the lives of the entire Band of the Hawk…

The Band of the Hawk, sacrificed for the sake of Griffith ambition, is slaughtered by the monsters called Apostles, with only two of those present there left alive – Guts who has lost his left arm and right eye, and Casca who suffered a mental breakdown and became as helpless as a child.

In order to avenge his companions, Guts decides to wage a war against all of the Apostles and Griffith. He sets out on a solitary road of revenge, dressed in black armor with a giant sword Dragon Slayer on his back…

? Characters

Guts

Guts is a wandering mercenary, who, after being defeated by Griffith, joins the Band of the Hawk. In that band, he earns the status of Captain of the Hawks’ Raiders. After the war ends, he leaves the Band of the Hawk to find his own dream and to become the equal of Griffith.

Griffith

The leader of the Band of the Hawk, a band of mercenaries feared as the Grim Reapers of the Battlefield. He is a young man of striking handsomeness and possesses a charisma that enchants people around him. His dream is to acquire his own kingdom.

NINTENDO 2DS SYSTEM DROPS TO NEW LOW SUGGESTED PRICE OF $109.99

Nintendo Also Announces Two New Games for Young Gamers: 

Style Savvy: Fashion Forward and Disney Magical World 2

VANCOUVER, B.C., July 12, 2016 – The entry point to Nintendo 2DS and Nintendo 3DS games and franchises has never been more affordable. On July 15, Nintendo will lower the price of its kid-friendly portable Nintendo 2DS system to a suggested retail price of $109.99, a great saving from the previous suggested retail price of $129.99. Most systems even come pre-installed with one of two great games from the universally popular Mario Kart 7 racing game to the mischievous YO-KAI WATCH adventure game, making the new value price even more appealing for parents who are looking for an entry-level gaming system for their young gamers.

Plus, for those caught up in Pokémon Go fever, the Nintendo 2DS plays all the best Pokémon games from the last 20 years – from the Pokémon Red Version, Pokémon Blue Version and Pokémon Yellow Version: Special Pikachu Edition originals to the future-classics Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, out November 18th.

Nintendo 2DS launched in October 2013 and is part of the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. The system comes with fun built-in entertainment options and applications to take photos and videos, plus wireless access to Nintendo eShop for those with Internet access. The unique design is built to make it easy for smaller hands to hold. The system includes two screens (including a touch screen) and plays Nintendo 3DS games, plus nearly all Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi games in 2D. For details about Nintendo 2DS, visit http://www.nintendo.com/en_CA/2ds.

“Nintendo 2DS is the best value available for a portable dedicated gaming system and is great for gaming on the go,” said Pierre-Paul Trepanier, Nintendo of Canada’s General Manager and Senior Director. “The system has a library full of high-quality games for purchase, some in our Nintendo Selects category for less than $30 each, featuring Mario, Donkey Kong, Yoshi and Zelda.”

Kids can check out the latest game in the Kirby series, Kirby: Planet Robobot, as well as two new kid-friendly games coming later this year: Style Savvy: Fashion Forward and Disney Magical World 2.

Style Savvy: Fashion Forward, the third game in the Style Savvy series, gives players a sense of accomplishment by putting them in charge of one of five exciting professions. Players can immerse themselves in a world of fashion by owning a boutique, designing clothes, styling hair, applying makeup or becoming a model. When players make themselves look good, customers who visit their boutiques might start adopting the player’s style. The game includes over 19,000 different articles of clothing, items and accessories to choose from. Players can also learn real-world fashion tips from the Fashion 101 guide. To access Nintendo character-themed clothing and accessories in the game, players can tap select amiibo figures to a Nintendo 2DS, Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo 3DS XL system using the Nintendo 3DS NFC Reader/Writer accessory to trigger an event. Once the event is completed, players can get the special items. The amiibo and Reader/Writer accessory are sold separately. The New Nintendo 3DS and New Nintendo 3DS XL systems feature a built-in NFC reader for amiibo. Style Savvy: Fashion Forward launches Aug. 19 at a suggested retail price of $39.99.

Disney Magical World2, the follow up to the popular franchise, lets players enjoy a variety of new adventures in six Disney-themed worlds, such as exploring the world of DisneyFrozen, dancing with Disney princesses or soaring through special Magical Dream events. Players will encounter and interact with well-known characters like Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Goofy, Elsa, Anna, Olaf, Ariel, Donald Duck and Daisy Duck. The game launches Oct. 14 at a suggested retail price of $49.99.

In the meantime, the Nintendo 3DS family of systems has a library of great exclusive games for every type of player, including New Super Mario Bros. 2, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. Some of Nintendo’s other big hits in the Nintendo Selects category are also available for a suggested retail price of only $29.99 each. The Nintendo Selects line includes great games like The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, Mario Party: Island Tour and Yoshi’s New Island.

mega man 7

No GravatarToday’s 3DS VC game for the New 3DS has been revealed as Mega Man 7. The SNES entry into the classic series is one of the more unusual entries but still a great time.

Not even prison can hold Dr. Wily from doing evil deeds!

Dr. Wily knew that one day his plans would fail him. But as the world cheered at his capture, the nefarious scientist stowed four robots in his lab, set to activate after six months of no communication from their master. Now the robots have started a rampage in the city, which serves as the perfect distraction for Dr. Wily to make his getaway.

But Mega Man and his trusty sidekick, Rush, are hot on his trail…and so are Bass and Treble? Who are these mysterious companions? Jump, power up, and blast your way through robotic enemies, and send Dr. Wily back to prison where he belongs!
