"Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" Trailer Officially Released
Direct from Star Wars Celebration comes the first full-length trailer for Star Wars Battlefront, the highly anticipated action game arriving Nov. 17 from DICE and Lucasfilm.
The third entry in the series, Battlefront allows players to immerse themselves in epic Star Wars battles, firing blasters, riding speeder bikes and even piloting TIE Fighters and the Millennium Falcon in locations ranging from Hoth to Endor to Tatooine. They’ll also be able to play as some of the most memorable characters from the original movie trilogy.
Atlus USA has debuted a new trailer for Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains that highlights combat and locations for the Nintendo 3DS game.
Announced early this month for release in May in North America, Europe and Australia, it’s an enhanced version of the Spike Chunsoft game previously available only in Japan. In Humanity in Chains, players defend the Walls as one of the characters from the hit anime, or they can create their own. They’re also able to transform into a Titan for short periods.
Quickly catching up to an online link, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has officially announced LEGO Dimensions, a new video game that allows players to mix and match characters from different universes, including DC Comics, The LEGO Movie, The Lord of the Rings and Back to the Future.
Arriving Sept. 27, it’s a “toy-to-life” console game, similar to the popular Skylanders and Disney Infinity. However, in this case, players won’t purchase characters but instead LEGO sets that they’ll build into characters, vehicles and devices that can be introduced into the game with the Toy Pad.
Ahead of the debut next week of Mortal Kombat X for consoles and PC, Warner Bros. Interactive and NetherRealm Studios have launched a free-to-play version of the fighting game for iOS devices. It’s available for download now from the App Store, with the Android version coming soon to Google Play.
As the launch trailer below demonstrates, the mobile version features all of the limb-tearing, skull-crushing action we’ve come to expect from the long-running franchise, but with a blend of fighting and card collection — presumably similar to NetherRealm’s Injustice: Gods Among Us.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has released the Mortal Kombat X launch trailer, directed by System of a Down’s Shavo Odadjian and set to the tune of the band’s signature hit “Chop Suey!”
Featuring glimpses of iconic moments, new and returning characters, and plenty of fight sequences, it’s not nearly as graphic as that Shaolin trailer, but there’s still plenty of spurting blood and crunching bones to be had. Enough that it’s probably not quite safe for work (but what are you doing watching a video-game trailer at work, anyway?).
Atlus USA will bring the Attack on Titan Nintendo 3DS game to North America, Europe and Australia in May. Watch the announcement trailer below.
An enhanced version of the Spike Chunsoft game previously available only in Japan, Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains permits players to battle Titans as one of the characters from the hit anime, based on the bestselling manga by Hajime Isayama. They can also create their own characters, head out on missions, and even transform into a Titan for short periods.
For devoted gamers and Dark Knight fans, Sony this morning unveiled the limited-edition Batman: Arkham Knight PlayStation 4 bundle.
Priced at $449.99, the bundle includes a Steel Grey PS4 system chassis with a custom faceplate, matching DualShock 4 wireless controller in Steel Grey and, of course, the finale of Rocksteady Studios’ hit Arkham trilogy.
If all the promotional material for Mortal Kombat X has left you wondering what happened to all the blood and gore, this trailer is for you.
Unveiled this morning by Maxim Russia and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, the Shaolin trailer turns the spotlight on Kung Lao, Liu Kang and newcomer Kung Jin, and doesn’t hold back on any of the decapitations, crushed skulls or bloody throat-punches fans have come to expect from the franchise. Needless to say, this probably isn’t safe for viewing at work.
Even as fans get a lengthy gameplay video, and a new release date, for Batman: Arkham Knight, more details have trickled out about the Harley Quinn DLC pack.
It was announced last summer that players who preordered the highly anticipated game would receive two free story packs, one featuring the Red Hood and the other Harley Quinn. Now, thanks to an update to the Amazon listing, we have an idea of what the Harley pack involves:
Considering the care with which Disney is managing Big Hero 6, we’re unlikely to see characters from the Oscar-winning animated movie appear in a traditional fighting game. However, if you were curious how a San Fransokyo tournament might play out, this video gives an idea.
Modder Salim transformed Zangief into Baymax and Cammy into GoGo Tomago, pitting them against each other in Capcom’s Ultra Street Fighter IV. It’s pretty impressive handiwork, as you can see in further detail from the Baymax skin below.
With the release last month of The Simpsons content pack for Minecraft, players had access to Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, Maggie and 19 other characters, but no Springfield. However, Minecrafters are nothing if not industrious, and one of them has not only constructed the entire town, but also recreated the show’s opening sequence.
Given the constraints — for instance, there’s no skateboard for Bart, and there are a limited number of residents — the recreation is surprisingly faithful. More impressive, however, is Springfield itself, which “Barely Regal” has made available for an interactive tour. You can check out both in the videos below.
TT Games and WB Games have unveiled the first full trailer for LEGO Jurassic World, which will allow players to relive all four franchise films — and to fully explore Isla Nublar and Isla Sorna.
In the game, players will be able to collect amber, which contains dinosaur DNA needed to create and customize species. For the first time, they’ll also be able to play as LEGO dinosaurs, including creatures from the upcoming film Jurassic World.
Developed for Warner Bros. Interactive by Turbine, the free-to-play multiplayer online battle arena game features player vs. player battles set within the DC Multiverse, where users can control different incarnations of their favorite heroes and villains.
Although even developer Rocksteady Studios was surprised to learn Batman: Arkham Knight had been rated “Mature,” we now have a good idea of why it’s the first game in the franchise not to receive a “T for Teen.”
Fan sites Batman News and Arkhamverse note the the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) has published its rating summary, which lays out the factors leading to the decision. While many of the elements are present in earlier games, scenes of torture would seem to be what pushed Arkham Knight into “M” territory. Note: The ratings summary may contain game spoilers.
Lastman, the acclaimed French martial-arts fantasy comic, is being developed as a 3D fighting game titled, appropriately enough, Lastfight. You can watch the announcement trailer below.
The comic, by Bastien Vivès, Balak and Michael Sanlaville, Lastman is an homage to American pop culture that centers on a cigarette-smoking, leather jacket-wearing stranger who enrolls in the gladiatorial-style games of a medieval fantasy world, but insists on relying on his martial-arts skills rather than magic. The series is published by Casterman in France and, beginning this month, by First Second in the United States.
