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.

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.

The following was sent out.

 

 

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.

No GravatarYoutuber JonTron recently made some very controversial and racially charged statements. While we wont go into what was said, this has led to a blowback against JonTron ( real name Jon Jafari). This has created a problem for Playtonic Games, as JonTron was set to lend his voice to their upcoming game Yooka-Laylee.

Playtonic put out the following statement today.

We recently became aware of comments made by voice artist JonTron after development on Yooka-Laylee had been completed,” the firm told GamesIndustry.biz in a statement.

“JonTron is a talented video presenter who we were initially, two years ago, happy to include as a voice contributor in our game. However, in light of his recent personal viewpoints we have made the decision to remove JonTron’s inclusion in the game via a forthcoming content update. We would like to make absolutely clear that we do not endorse or support JonTron’s personal viewpoints and that, as an external fan contributor, he does not represent Playtonic in any capacity. Playtonic is a studio that celebrates diversity in all forms and strives to make games that everyone can enjoy. As such, we deeply regret any implied association that could make players feel anything but 100% comfortable in our game worlds, or distract from the incredible goodwill and love shown by our fans and Kickstarter backers.”

Given the extremely contentious issues going on right now, and the blowback against JonTron, it is extremely understandable that Playtonic would not want him in the game. This is Playtonic’s first game and any controversy surrounding it, could hurt the game and thus their studio. As such, what they did was perfectly understandable. Free speech guarantees you can say something, but there are still consequences.

The Pokémon Company has announced The 2017 Pokken Tournament Championship Series

Take a shot at becoming the Pokkén Tournament World Champion when the Pokkén Tournament Championship Series returns in 2017! In addition to the title, a combined $25,000 in prizes are on the line at the qualifying competitions in June and the World Championships event in Anaheim, California, this August.

This year, 16 players will qualify for the World Championships, and there will be only one age division for all competitors. Four players will receive invitations from each of the two qualifying events, plus four more players will be chosen from Japan, and the four top players from a Last Chance Qualifier occurring right before the main Worlds event will be the final contenders.

Good luck battling to become the next Pokkén Tournament World Champion!

The Pokémon Company continuing to support the game’s competitive scene is a great sign for the game’s future. Not only does it help the competitive scene grow but it also means it is likely we will see a Switch version of the game, as that is the system Nintendo is focusing on now. Perhaps we will even see the content that didn’t come tot he Wii U version, in a Switch version

Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap is coming very soon and it seems the surprises are still coming.

As it turns out, there is another playable character in the game in the form of Wonder Girl. She is playable in both the HD version and  the classic 8 Bit look of the game.

The game releases April 18 and should be an exciting experience. Have a look at the Wonder Girl trailer below.

We knew it was coming thanks to Nintendo of Europe showing it in an image, but now it has been made official. Bloodstained: ROTN will be coming to the Switch, while the Wii U version has been cancelled.

A kickstarter update was put out where Iga stated that “the situation has drastically changed after the release of Nintendo Switch.” While it had made sense to include Wii U during the campaign that is no longer the case due to Nintendo shifting their focus to the Switch,

It continues

 “This change made it difficult to receive the necessary support from the hardware maker, which has led us to drop the Wii U development and shift the development to Nintendo Switch,”

If you supported Bloodstained on Kickstarter , there is an option change their backer survey platform from Wii U to Switch or any other version, or other versions to Switch. I already changed my platform of choice on the backer survey, from PS4 to Switch. The option is there already.
