A new version of Street Fighter IV has been announced for iOS by Capcom. Street Fighter IV Champion Edition will come to mobile phones later this summer

 

Champion Edition adds Poison, Ibuki, and Dundley to the roster of characters, bringing the total up to 25. Players can fight against AI or online via Wi-Fi. The game is controlled with a four-button virtual pad on screen, which “allows players to execute moves through multiple key combinations and shortcuts,” according to Capcom. The game will also support external controllers and gamepads.

Champion Edition launches this summer, although Capcom has yet to give a firm release date. There’s no word on a price yet, either, but Street Fighter IV currently costs $4 on the iOS App Store. You can pre-register for news about the release of the game here.

This new version is likely coming to iOS due to updates to the operating system rendering older apps unable to continue being supported. It will likely be around the same price if not a dollar or two more, but all in all, this is just a replacement app really. Still it will hopefully be a good experience for those who choose to play it.

Pokemon developer Game Freak is recruiting for a new game. The company has put out an official job listing for a programmer who will be involved with some sort of RPG on 3DS.

We have no  further details, and nothing more is included in the listing. Could this be a new Pokémon game? We know a new entry in the series is supposed to come to Switch, so could this be something new instead?

We will have to wait and see.

Gambitious Digital Entertainment has revealed that independent developer Vile Monarch’s new irreverent insult dueling game, Oh…Sir! The Hollywood Roast, will launch on May 31 for Windows PC, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android.

A star-studded spinoff of the infamous insult ‘em up Oh…Sir!! The Insult Simulator, Oh…Sir! The Hollywood Roast cobbles together a jumble of focus group-tested pop culture icons and references to create new characters and film sets with which to battle. String together combo chains of discourteous dialogue to verbally beat down your scene partners for top billing in single-player or online and local multiplayer.

True to modern moviemaking, Oh…Sir! The Hollywood Roast takes the series in a dark direction, with gritty new features like an expanded career mode, character creation tools and controller integration. The script has been rewritten a dozen times by heavy-handed executives to ensure that Oh…Sir! The Hollywood Roast offers twice the vocabulary of its predecessor. The producers have also recast and redesigned the scoring system for more engaging fights while introducing a hot new charged comeback mechanic that lets players drop the final curtain on each other with dramatic effect.

Oh…Sir! The Hollywood Roast will launch on May 31. The original cult classic, Oh…Sir!! The Insult Simulator, will launch on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system on May 30 and on Xbox One in June. For the latest updates until then, please visit http://store.steampowered.com/app/575330, and follow us on Twitter @GambitiousInc and @VileMonarch.

Oh……. Sir! The Insult Simulator was a truly innovative indie game and it is good to see that a spinoff is coming. Hopefully this one will catch on just as well as the first game did.

According to The Wall Street Journal, The Legend of Zelda will be headed to mobile in the future. Following the great successes of Pokemon GO and Super Mario Run this may come as little surprise, but it’s certainly awesome to hear nonetheless! The game will reportedly come after the release of Nintendo’s Animal Crossing mobile game, which will reportedly release in the second half of 2017, leading many to believe The Legend of Zelda title will release in early 2018. There’s no word on what the game will be, and while a port of a classic LoZ title would be amazing (A Link to the Past please!),  so far all of Nintendo’s games have been original titles. There’s also no word on whether this game will be free to play (like Pokemon GO or Miitomo) or not (Super Mario Run had a hefty $10 price tag for full admission!).

The timing of the news is certainly interesting with E3 beginning in less than a month (June 13-15). 2016’s E3 included news from Bethesda concerning their mobile game Fallout Shelter coming to PC, so E3 mobile game news wouldn’t be unheard of. The speculation on what the Zelda title may be is perhaps even more fun than the game will be itself, with TechRadar detailing some great possibilities including a cooking game, puzzle game and an online multiplayer title in the vein of Phantom Hourglass on the Nintendo DS.

Whatever it may end up being, one thing is for sure – it’s an exciting time to be a Nintendo fan!

Have you been missing that creative urge? Today Maxis announced The Sims Mobile, an all-new Sims experience that leverages the player’s power of imagination to create Sims and play with life.

 

Developed by the creators of The Sims and SimCity franchises, The Sims Mobile is inspired by The Sims 4 Legacy Challenge, encouraging players to build a successful multi-generational family, while unlocking and collecting unique Heirlooms along the way. As players progress, these powerful Heirlooms offer different gameplay benefits that help Sims achieve their Life Goals throughout the game.

 

In The Sims Mobile, players can also interact with their real-life friends in a whole new way. Their Sims can host and attend parties, develop relationships as best friends, nemeses, soul mates, and more with their real-life friends’ Sims, and share in big moments together in the game.

It is always great to see The Sims franchise continue in new ways. Will Wright’s iconic game series has gone through many forms, but it is perfect for mobile devices. I can see this doing very well.

I have always loved pinball. Ever since I was a child, I have loved pinball machines and pinball videogames. Maybe it was playing NES pinball, or Alien Crush, I just found a love of both the machines and the video games. As such, I was a big fan of Zen Studios work. I hadn’t played some of their new boards in years, but one set that stood out above all others was their Bethesda pack.

Imagine taking Fallout 4, DOOM and Skyrim and turning them into pinball games, and at the same time retaining almost everything about the games. These are not just Bethesda themed pinball boards, they are the games fully adapted into pinball games, complete with game mechanics and identity.

Skyrim Pinball is nothing short of amazing. It retells the story of Skyrim through pinball and stays true to the game. It has the iconic music, it has leveling up and boss battles, and you have to watch your health and stamina at all times. You will go through dungeons, you will pick up loot and sort through and inventory and even craft items. I was absolutely blown away by the amount of detail put into the game. Yes its a stripped down version, but the essence is all still there. I had to be pulled away from the game just to be reminded that I had other obligations, that is how into it I got. The Skyrim board alone makes this worth getting. But it isn’t the only board.

DOOM Pinball was like getting hit with sensory overload in the best way possible. Great music, great visuals, good enemies and fights, I would never have thought it possible but it works. This follows the basic storyline of the new game and incorporates several elements from it, all done in the best way possible to keep the feeling despite the different format. I will even go so far as to say, that this particular board felt like more of a sequel to Alien Crush Pinball than the actual sequel for the Wii did .

Fallout Pinball is where things fell a bit short. I admit this may be because I am not extremely familiar with the Fallout games as much as others, but it felt like adapting many elements just got in the way. With Skyrim and Doom inventory and battles felt fluid and easy even if it took a while to get used to. With fallout, it felt way too clunky at times, but I can still appreciate the work done on this. The visuals are amazing and the music was good, but to me this just felt like the weak entry.

Overall, I would definitely give this a look at. My issues with the Fallout board likely have to do with my unfamiliarity with Bethesda’s entries, and fans might will like it. The other two boards however, were nothing but awesome. DOOM and Skyrim individually would make the purchase worth it, as they are some of the best pinball boards ever made. Fun, exhilarating and with an amazing amount of detail, these will suck you in fast.

I fully recommend checking this out.
