Jason Clement posted a article in Industry NewsOver the weekend, Bandai Namco announced at Anime Expo that a pair of Digimon titles would be heading to the Nintendo Switch later this year -- namely, Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth, and its sequel, Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth -- Hacker's Memory. Both will be included in one collection called Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth: Complete Edition. The announcement comes as good news for fans of the series since the PlayStation 4 version of Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth (the English version of which originally released in 2016) is now out of print physically and was removed from the PlayStation Store in December 2018. While Bandai Namco's official response as to why it was removed is a bit cagey, it's largely assumed that it was due to the license (which Saban currently owns) ending for that particular title. In any case, fans can look forward to playing Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth: Complete Edition when it lands on Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam later this year on October 18. Source: Press Release
Jason Clement posted a article in iOS/AndroidSan Diego Comic-Con is underway this week and Bandai Namco have announced that two Pac-Man games will be coming to mobile devices later this year. The first is a well-known entity—the highly addictive Pac-Man Championship Edition DX, which released on PS3 and Xbox 360 a few years back. In addition, a brand new game in the series was introduced as Pac-Man Friends and will feature tilt controls as you guide Pac-Man through challenging mazes to rescue his friends from the Ghosts' castle. It will feature 95 levels across 6 worlds and also include 9 unlockable uniquely powered friends. Pac-Man Friends will release on mobile devices first in September with Championship Edition DX following in November. Source: Press Release Are you interested in either of these new Pac-Man games?
Jason Clement posted a article in Industry NewsBandai Namco formally unveiled Tekken 7 at EVO in Las Vegas over this last weekend, but perhaps the bigger surprise is that the game is being developed using Unreal Engine 4. Tekken series Executive Producer and Director Katsuhiro Harada commented on the reveal, saying: â€œThe power and flexibility means that we can focus our efforts on making TEKKEN 7 the best possible game without worrying about spending time creating a stand-alone graphic engine. With Unreal Engine 4, we could rapidly achieve visual quality expected on next-gen platform and go beyond it. Not only is Unreal Engine 4 powerful and easy to use, but it allows us to immediately bring TEKKEN 7 to any platform we desire.â€ A teaser trailer was also shown for the game at EVO, though no actual gameplay was shown. The trailer reveals that Heihachi will play a big part in its story, and that the female character narrating (presumably Kazumi, as evidenced by the ending) must stop him in what is billed as the final battle. No expected release window or platforms were announced, though it is expected to release only on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One (and possibly PC) due to the high processing requirements of Unreal Engine 4. You can watch the announcement trailer for the game below. http://youtu.be/ZpKZimcWLi4 Source: Press Release Are you excited for Tekken 7?
