The film based on the historical tale of Yasuke, a historical black samurai who was among the first foreign born samurai  to serve a warlord in Japan. He served under Oda Nobunaga in the mid-1500s, and has been referenced in other historical works and video games as recently as this year.

No GravatarVideo game peripheral maker Mad Catz has a bad run financially lately, and it is about to be a lot worse. The company is due to bet removed from trading  on the new York Stock Exchange due to “abnormally low” stock value. Mad catz has said theyt will not appeal the process, which will lead to severe financial hardship for them.

It is not the end however, for Mad Catz a publicly-traded company. After it will be delisted from the NYSE Mad Catz stock will then be traded on the “OTC Pink” U.S. financial market for so-called “over-the-counter” securities.

11 Bit Studios put out the following.

Travel back to the streets of 1980s NYC as former detective Jack Kelly. Framed for murder, demoted to the lowest ranks, and forgotten by old pals, this is your last chance to uncover the truth behind this terrible mess. Just don’t forget about writing tickets. You’re a beat cop, after all.

And, in addition to awesome storytelling, Beat Cop has all the cool extra you love in games, like cool pixel-art, multiple endings, ’80s nostalgia, and humor to make your mother blush.

This looks to be an interesting game and should provide a unique experience. We hope to have a review up sometime soon.

No GravatarGame music cover band Moiré Effect has put out a new song that is a Power Ballad version of the Moon Theme from Ducktales on the NES. This song has lyrics as well, and is rather catchy.

 

 

 

Moiré Effect started as a garage rock band in the late ’90s when the guys were in high school. In the last couple years they’ve been revisiting their original songs as well as putting out VGM covers for games including Deus Ex, Chrono Trigger, and Cave Story. You can follow Moiré Effect on Twitter or Facebook.

Thank you to Jayson Napolitano for bringing this to our attention.

Frozenbyte sent out the following

 

Has-Been Heroes, the challenging roguelike game of strategy and action from Frozenbyte and GameTrust (coming to Switch, Xbox One, PS4 and PC) has been delayed by a week in Europe and Australia/New Zealand due to logistical issues. The new launch date for those territories is Tuesday, April 4th.
The US and Steam releases are still on target for Tuesday, March 28th.
Joel Kinnunen, Vice President of Frozenbyte and Producer on Has-Been Heroes, together with Marketing Manager Kai Tuovinen issued an apology video in typical Frozenbyte tradition:

The delay is unfortunate, but if there is something they need to clear before the game can launch in those regions, then it has to be done. We hope to have review of the game shortly and to share our opinions on it.

Focus Home Interactive posted the following

Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom Release Date Unveiled in Music Trailer

Action-RPG Shiness, from indie studio Enigami, will be available for download on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on 18 April 2017 as revealed in today’s Music Trailer. The game’s universe was born over 20 years ago from the pen strokes of Samir Rebib, Artistic Director of the studio. Composed of passionate people, independent studio Enigami went through a successful Kickstarter campaign, allowing the project to grow and gain momentum until it was accompanied by Focus Home Interactive.

In today’s Music Trailer, we invite you discovering the magical lands and characters of the Lightning Kingdom, accompanied by an entrancing, original soundtrack composed by Enigami co-founder Hazem Hawash. This gives you a first taste of the tracks that will accompany you along your journey.

The indie studio has pumped all its energy and passion into Shiness, and in less than a month a child’s dream finally becomes an indie-RPG with a bold personality… and enchanting music!

Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom will be available for download on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on 18 April 2017.

 

This game looks absolutely amazing and should be a lot of fun. This looks like a really unique game, and like a breath of fresh air in gaming. We hope to have a review of the game sometime soon.

Bigben and Games Workshop are happy to announce their partnership for the development of a console and PC game based on the renowned Warhammer Fantasy Battles IP.

This adaptation of the franchise will be the first Hack and Slash game to unfold in the Warhammer world. The game takes place in the Old World, a dark and bloody continent devastated by the wars against Chaos. Dive into the heart of the Warhammer story, become a hero and battle to survive the desolation.

The French studio Eko Software, known for attracting millions of survivors in the How to Survive series, was entrusted with the new Warhammer Fantasy Battles adaptation.

“We are very pleased to work with Games Workshop developing a game which draws from the incredible potential of the Warhammer world. The Eko Software and Bigben teams have long been fans of this franchise from day one, including myself. Warhammer Fantasy Battles is well suited to offer players something quite innovative in the timeless hack & slash genre.” affirmed Benoit Clerc, Director of Video Games at Bigben.

“We’re really pleased to start this new partnership with Bigben, and this project will be an amazing opportunity for gamers to experience an epic story in the first Hack N’ Slash game set in the classic Warhammer Fantasy world. Eko did a great job with their How To Survive series and we’re confident they are going to do something amazing with our IP. I know the Bigben and Eko staff are massive fans of our lore and I can’t wait to see what they come up with.” declared Jon Gillard, Head of Licensing at Games Workshop.

Additional information on the story, key realms and geography, the platforms and playable races will be unveiled shortly.

I would say this sounds interesting, but there really isn’t much to go on other than that this will be a Hack and Slash game set in the Warhammer Fantasy universe. Hopefully it is a good experience.

EA sent out the following

 

Today, Respawn revealed Colony Reborn, the next free DLC update available to all Titanfall 2 players. Starting March 30th, players can re-visit Colony – a fan favorite map from the first Titanfall that is filled with narrow streets, interiors, and rooftops. In addition to Colony, players can try out an all-new Pilot execution, Curb Check pilot, as well as the new R-101 carbine, all for free!

 

In addition to the new free content, Titanfall 2 players can also purchase new cosmetic items including Prime skins for Northstar and Legion, new Camos, Callsigns, and more.

 

To celebrate the launch of Colony Reborn, Respawn will be kicking off another free trial weekend. Starting March 30, those yet to experience the power of Titanfall 2 can enjoy elements of the game’s critically-acclaimed single player. This includes The Beacon, one of the missions from the main campaign, as well as the Training Gauntlet. In addition to introducing single-player content to the trial, players will also have access to all multiplayer maps and modes. The Titanfall 2 free trial weekend will end on Monday, April 3, at which point the multiplayer portion of the trial will no longer be available. However, the single player content from the trial will still be available post-April 3.

Titanfall 2 has been under the radar compared to other big name games, which is a shame as it is a major improvement over the original. Hopefully this new content and the free weekend will help bring in more players.
