Minimur, WTH Happened This Week? Uncharted Trilogy Rumors, The Witcher 3 Game Map and Square Enix Games!
This week we’ve had a new Deus Ex announcement, an Uncharted Trilogy listing and a sales figure for FF Type-0
Square Enix have been in the headlines this week quite a bit, with a new game, the success of Tomb Raider and FF Type-0 and another teaser for a game, their PR department must be running in circles at the moment! But as for other news, There’s an update on Resi 2 for Vita, we also get a look at Kratos in Shovel Knight,
Home – PS4/Vita – April 25th
This is actually the first time I’ve heard about this game, even though it’s 3 years old, it looks pretty good. The developer says how the decisions you make, will have outcomes into the story, take a look at the trailer below
Looney Tunes Galactic Sports – Exclusive to Vita, later this year.
At first I assumed this was a proper game being published by Warner Bros, but the game is being developed by VirtualToys, I’ve never heard of these guys before, they’ve developed Muppets: Movie Adventures for the PS Vita before, but prior to that the only game I recognise from their showcase if Cars 2 on the PSP. Take a look at their site:
Although looking at the blog post, the game does look kind of fun, but I won’t be getting this one….
Gio Corsi, director of the Third Party Production team took a place on the blog this week to give an update on Resi. Evil Revelations 2, and what’s going on with the Vita release, this is what he had to say:
The PS Vita version of Resident Evil Revelations 2 will contain all four episodes of Capcom’s scarefest, including any released DLC (sans consumables) thus far. As for Raid Mode, single-player will also be included at launch, but online co-op Raid Mode and the ad-hoc modes will most likely come post-launch via an update. This is so we can get the full game into your hands that much sooner. Finally, we’ve added Gyroscopic Targeting to make shooting weapons that much more Vita-centric.
- All 4 episodes
- All DLC
- Raid Mode
Gyro shooting doesn’t get a point, as much as I love it, sometimes it’s a bit annoying if you’re about to get that headshot and have a twitch, and lose it, as for a release date however, without committing too much, Gio said:
“coming digitally this summer.”
I guess that means there’re no plans for a physical release then, would you prefer the game with a physical release? I do prefer my games boxed, I originally preferred them digitally but was locked out of my PS4, which in turn rekindled my love for the fresh new box smell. It’s the same feeling as visiting a petrol station! amirite?!?
Shovel Knight, the platformer which was announced at the PS experience, is bringing Kratos to the game, it was announced at time, but this week a full blog post went up on the PS Blog outlining his soundtrack and a few awesome GIF’s of his move set.
Shovel < Blades of Chaos
In the same blog they announced the soundtrack for the fight, here it is, IT’S EPIC!
Retailer CeDe.ch has put up a listing for the Uncharted Trilogy, unfortunately, the listing has been taken down, here’s a screenshot of the web page before it was taken down:
Although this could be a fake listing, it’s entirely possible that they had the news, like everyone else and put it up early to drive people to their site. But as far as that description goes, holy crud.
Uncharted 1-3 in HD! More information soon!
They already are in HD.
In any case, Naughty Dog have expressed interest in such collection previously, and this could be a real thing. Just under a year ago Arne Meyer, Community Strategist for Naughty Dog said in regards to a collection:
It would be a good time for us to leverage all the attention behind it and make it look better. It would be really cool to have. Shuhei really likes the Uncharted series quite a bit, and I think it would be a great way to introduce – I wouldn’t say a new generation – but to expand the people that are bound to know Uncharted.
I don’t know if we’re able to do that, but it’s a really clever idea. It would be nice to see if we can figure that out and pull that off.
A lot can happen in 9 months. 🙂
Square Enix hit the news payload this week, I’ve got 3 articles to sum up for you to ogle. Ranging from new games to sales, let’s talk about the more interesting stuff first though.
On Wednesday, Square Enix announced a new Deus Ex, dubbed Mankind Divided its story focuses on how augmented beings are being treated as a separate species, which in turn causes violence for the prejudice.
Watching the trailer, there were quite a few interesting upgrades you can purchase for Adam, this time around. The tasers looked pretty cool, along with how you could shoot your blade from your arm as well. Take a look at the video!
S.E have decided it’d be a good idea to announce another game, but through a secret teaser site:
You can tweet about the web page, and a lot of people are guessing Star Ocean 5 to be the game, to be perfectly honest I’ve never played a Star Ocean before but it must be good if S.E are warranting a dedicated web page to its announcement, right?
S.E have been doing pretty well sales wise, too, the newly (re)released Final Fantasy Type-0 has shipped 1 million copies worldwide. The announcement was made via twitter through one of many S.E’s accounts:
【祝】FF零式HDの累計出荷本数が、全世界で100万本を突破しましたクポ！この場を借りて皆さんに御礼申し上げますクポ！ そして！『アクティブタイムレポート フィードバック速報SP』の配信が4/28日15:00に決定いたしましたクポ！ pic.twitter.com/XHkqltMVXF

[Congratulation] cumulative shipments of FF Type-0 HD is, Kupo you have surpassed the one million units worldwide! Kupo that I thank to everyone to take this opportunity! And! Kupo “active time report feedback Bulletin SP” of delivery has decided to 4/28 3:00 PM!
It slightly makes sense.
CD Projekt Red has announced expansions and the whole world map for their upcoming game, here it is:
The map you get is a result of pre-ordering the game’s strategy guide from Gamestop. I do like world maps, I’ve still got Lightning Returns A0 world map I got when I pre-ordered the guide.
Something else that was announced this week were 2 massive expansions for the game, Heart of Stone is the first expansion coming in October 2015 and will consist of 10 hours of extra gameplay, for $9.99, and the second expansion, Blood and Wine will be coming ‘in the first quarter of 2016’ and will offer 20 hours more of gameplay for $19.99
An ‘expansion pass’ will be offered, for $24.99 if you are dead set on getting both, but with a claim of 200 hours for you to get through first, I think I might miss out on these.
Here’s their new trailer: It’s pretty awesome!
