We already have a release window for Final Fantasy 16: Summer 2023. It's being planned for release on the PlayStation 5 and PC.
Revealed at Sony's State of Play event, Final Fantasy 16 also got a new trailer, the first look at gameplay after previous cinematics.
Back in 2017, Sony's Insomniac Games famously tweeted that its Spider-Man game was a "permanent PS4 exclusive" that would "never appear on Xbox or PC." Welp, Sony just announced that the Spider-Man series is coming to PC, with Spider-Man Remastered arriving on August 12th, 2022 and Spider-Man: Miles Morales coming in the fall.
From the footage shown in the teaser, the visuals look pretty great. The remastered version includes adjustable render settings and ray-traced reflections, and you'll of course be able to use your keyboard and mouse. The game "will include the full main story and its continued narrative in Marvel's Spider-Man: The City that Never Sleeps DLC," with three accompanying Peter Parker story chapters along with additional missions and challenges, according to Insomniac.
Capcom has confirmed that it will be taking the story of Resident Evil 4 in a bit of a different direction with its forthcoming 2023 remake. To coincide with this past week's PlayStation State of Play presentation, the longtime Japanese publisher confirmed previous reports and rumors that RE4 would be the next game in the series to get the remake treatment. And while this news on its own has greatly excited fans, it sounds like the game's story won't be identical to the original.
In a press release that Capcom let loose following the reveal of the first trailer for Resident Evil 4, it was explained that the story of the game will be "reimagined" with this remake. Capcom didn't say much about what this might mean overall, but it did make clear that any changes will be "true to the promise of the original release." As for the opening portions of the story, Capcom has said that it will still center around Leon Kennedy as he travels to a remote village in pursuit of retrieving the kidnapped daughter of the president of the United States.
In a general sense, this shouldn't be shocking given that Capcom has largely done the same thing with the storylines in its remakes of Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3. Even though these new versions of the previous Resident Evil titles were quite similar to their original iterations, some tweaks were made in certain spots. It remains to be seen if Capcom will end up making more drastic overhauls with the story of Resident Evil 4, but considering that the game is a bit longer than RE2 and RE3, it definitely seems like more alterations could be made with this remake.
For now, all we know for certain is that Resident Evil 4 will be let loose early next year on March 24, 2023. When it does release, it will come to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and PC.
Whispers of a Metroid Prime remaster for Switch have been circulating for quite some time, but a new report has claimed Nintendo is finally almost ready to share the fruits of its labour, and will be releasing the long-rumoured game at the end of this year.
That's according to the persistently leaky Jeff Grubb, who shared the news on Giant Bomb's Game Mess Mornings show, saying he'd been told "pretty definitively" that an updated version of Metroid Prime 1 - what he referred to as Metroid Prime Remastered - was set to be one of Nintendo's "big holiday games" for 2022.
"In the past, this is something I'd heard was in the works," Grubb explained, "they have things happening with that game. Now I’ve been told that their plans are to release that game this holiday - I think almost certainly to line up with the 20th anniversary in November."
WB Games released Gotham Knights character trailers for Nightwing and Robin, respectively.
The Castlevania animated series will return to Netflix for a new project, Castlevania: Nocturne, the streaming service announced Friday during its Geeked Week event. A release date for more Castlevania animation wasn’t announced, with Netflix confirming only that Nocturne was now in production.
The new Castlevania series will focus on Richter Belmont, star of Castlevania: Rondo of Blood and Symphony of the Night. If it’s accurate to the video game canon, it would be set centuries after the existing Castlevania animated series. The previous Castlevania series focused on Trevor Belmont and his allies Sypha Belnades and Alucard.
Castlevania: Nocturne is led by showrunner Kevin Kolde, who worked on the previous Castlevania series that streamed on Netflix from 2017 to 2021, and creator/writer Clive Bradley. Project 51 Productions and Powerhouse Animation will also return for Nocturne.
