A new game in the Double Dragon series was officially announced to be currently in development by Modus Games and Secret Base.

This upcoming new game is called Double Dragon Gaiden: Rise of the Dragons and is currently planned to be released this summer for Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.

In terms of gameplay details, it was announced that it will feature 13 playable characters and a "tag team combat" system but it only supports local co-op at 2 players max and no online multiplayer.

Double Dragon Gaiden: Rise of the Dragons brings back the brothers Lee, as well as a couple more dragons to make quadruple dragons. Marian joins the brothers, after becoming tired of bad guys constantly carrying her off. Meanwhile, I hope Uncle Matin is actually their uncle. There’s reportedly going to be a total of 13 playable characters, but the gameplay only supports two-player local coop. That’s probably a bummer for a lot of people, but I’m okay with it. I don’t like playing games with people who are out of Charlie Horse range.

The big combat change here is that it’s all “tag team combat.” You select two characters and can switch between them freely. There are co-op combos and other moves to pull off between your pair.

Secret Base is best known for Streets of Red: Devil’s Dare Deluxe. They’re applying a twist to the main campaign of Double Dragon Gaiden: Rise of the Dragons. You select the order you’ll tackle the levels, and that will affect the length and difficulty of the following stages. You can also gain cash by performing special KOs and upgrade your fighter.

Basing the gameplay on tag team combos and not having any online co-op is a giant fucking L.

Today's News:
* According to a report from the Game Post, Bungie was recently award $12 million by a court over their lawsuit against cheat seller website VeteranCheats and its owner Mihai Claudiu-Florentin. Bungie claimed that the cheat hacks being sold by the website had "caused significant harm to Destiny 2 and its community, frustrating users and undermining the game’s intent" as the reason for their lawsuit.

The key software allows players to see through walls and auto-aim, alongside other in-game advantages.

Bungie argued that the sale of VeteranCheats had caused significant harm to Destiny 2 and its community, frustrating users and undermining the game’s intent. Bungie sought default judgment of just over $12 million USD, including statutory damages of $2,000 for each of the cheat’s 5,848 downloads, as well as an additional $146,000 for copyright violation, and payment for the studio’s legal fees.

The District Court of Washington found in favor of Bungie’s claim, and ordered a total damage reparation of $12,059,912.98. In addition, Claudi-Florentin was barred from engaging in any activity that opposes Bungie’s copyright act and DMCA rulings. As of this writing, the VeteranCheats website is still operational, selling cheats for other popular video games including Call of Duty and PUBG. The Destiny 2 hacks, obviously, have since been removed.

Pretty much gave up on redfall. At it's very best, it's no better than average.

Microsoft has had so many fails lately that when they do get a win (hi-fi rush) no one even notices.

Starfield can't just be a home run. It has to be a grand slam.

Today's News:
* Add the EU Commission to growing list of government agencies that have given or hinted their approval for Micorsoft's attempted purchase on Activision Blizzard. Similar to others, the EU Commission did not believe that MS' ownership of AB would give them monopolistic power in the gaming industry but also similar to others, they did have concerns over the impact it would have on the cloud gaming market. MS managed to resolve that issue by offering a 10-year deal as a concession for all European Economic Area (EEA) gamers to play “all current and future Activision Blizzard PC and console games” via a cloud service of their choice. This deal for the cloud gaming market will also apply globally as well.

* In some somber news, the original voice actor of Crash Bandicoot, Brendan O’Brien, passed away on March 23rd at the age of 60. The reason for the delay between his passing and it becoming public was not given but likely was just due to family privacy-related reasons.
Quote:
Originally Posted by Destructoud
In the video game sphere, O’Brien performed the array of wild and madcap sounds that Crash makes as he barrels his way through the Wumpa Islands, offering the zany hero personality through chaotic screams and yells, as well as the memetic “Whoa” that is still intrinsically linked with the series and its characters to this day. O’Brien would voice Crash and other characters, including Tiny Tiger, Dr. N. Gin, and Dr. Nitrus Brio in earlier Crash titles including Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, CTR: Crash Team Racing, and Crash Bash.

A fascinating element of O’Brien’s legacy lies in the fact that, while he never really delivered any actual dialogue as Crash Bandicoot, he infused the personality and character that would lead to the platform hero becoming a huge success, during an era when many such characters would be left by the wayside. And while O’Brien would eventually leave the character in his past, he helped the franchise — one that shape the formative years of so many players — find the heart and success that endures today.

In a recent investor's meeting, SEGA revealed that they are currently considering the idea of potentially raising the price for their new game releases from its current price of $60 to a new price tag of $70 similar to what other publishers and companies have done for several of their game releases this gen.

Quote:

Sega Sammy CEO Haruki Satomi and CFO Koichi Fukazawa were asked about the possibility of raising game prices during a Q&A session following the publication of the company’s full-year earnings in April.

“In the global marketplace, AAA game titles for console have been sold at $59.99 for many years, but titles sold at $69.99 have appeared in the last year,” Sega said in a newly published English transcript of the event.

“We would like to review the prices of titles that we believe are commensurate with price increases, while also keeping an eye on market conditions.”

In August 2020, Take-Two’s NBA 2K21 became the first current-gen game to be priced at $70. Sony and Activision quickly followed suit by charging $70 for big new releases, followed by the likes of EA and Square Enix, with the Final Fantasy publisher even bringing the increased price point to some of its PC games.

Microsoft and Nintendo released their first $70 games this month, while Ubisoft has said its long-delayed Skull & Bones will be its first $70 title.

Today's News:
* Sega Europe and Relic Entertainment announced that they have recently laid off around 121 employees at Relic. Official reason given was due to current restructuring plans and process that are going on at the studio.

* Add China's State Administration for Market Regulation to the growing list of government agencies that have given or hinted their approval for Microsoft's attempted purchase of Activision Blizzard. Unlike other government agencies that had some concerns or are against the deal over potential monopolistic issues in the general gaming and cloud gaming markets, China's government agency had no such concerns and gave their unconditional support for MS' purchase.

* According to Kotaku, Ubisoft currently has tentative plans to release their new open-world Star Wars game by Spring of 2024 but it is more likely that the game will be delayed to a later date of by Spring of 2025 instead. The rumored reason for the potential lengthy delay is due to potential development-related issues over the game's large scope.

* New York Times reported that Blizzard is currently developing an A.I. tool that would be able to produce concept art and assets for future projects.

In an email seen by The New York Times, Blizzard chief design officer Allen Adham told employees about the new initiative dubbed last month.

“Prepare to be amazed,” said Adham in the email. “We are on the brink of a major evolution in how we build and manage our games.”

Blizzard Diffusion is reportedly being used to help generate concept art for game environments, characters, and outfits. The internal email also reportedly mentions possible tools for procedurally assisted level design, A.I.-assisted voice cloning, game coding, anti-toxicity, and “autonomous, intelligent, in-game NPCs.”

Blizzard has already been experimenting with A.I. tools in the past. According to the NYT’s report, Blizzard has already abandoned a machine-learning technology it had patented to create environmental textures, as it was taking up too much of artists’ time to be effective. Meanwhile, another tool was assisting with fitting headpieces to players in World of Warcraft.

“The goal is to remove the repetitive and manual process and enable artists to spend more time on creativity,” Blizzard’s vice president of global insights Andrew Guerrero told The New York Times. “Our goal with A.I. has been, and will continue to be, to try to make creative work easier.”

I thought Ubisoft's plan was to dump more resources into Assassins' Creed. 2025 seems more realistic unless LucasArts strolls in for a visit says they want it done now.

Some cool looking new ips. Great to see gameplay for DD 2 ans Spider-man. Overall though, it wasn't an amazing showcase. Only big announcement was MGS 3 which we knew was coming.

If xbox had a bunch of big games under wraps, now would be the time to unveil them.

CD Projekt RED recently denied rumors of Sony being in the process of potentially purchasing the company as part of their current plans to buy more studios as a counter of Microsoft's purchases and attempted purchases in recent years.

In a recent investor's meeting CD Projekt RED's CEO Adam Kiciński stated that their company is not available for sale.

This rumor originated from a screenshot recently posted online from a Destiny leaker claiming that Sony was working on plans to buy the company.

The question came up during the Q&A portion of CD Projekt’s Q1 2023 results. The caller asked about recent rumors that Sony is interested in CD Projekt; for context, they seem to stem from a Destiny leaker, with a screenshot in an accompanying thread alleging PlayStation plans on “buying” CD Projekt Red.

“Nothing has changed on our end,” Kiciński said. “I can repeat what we’ve been saying throughout the years: CD Projekt is not for sale. We want to remain independent; we have–I believe–an excellent strategy. For sure it’s not easy to execute, but it’s very exciting to follow our own path, so it’s a pure rumor.”

A new game in the Wolfenstein series, Wolfenstein 3, is rumored to currently be in development based on recent job postings at developer MachineGames.

Since then, many of you have wanted to see more exploits from the Nazi-killing protagonist.

The existence of a new job opening comes from Reddit user Hard2DaC0re, who points to a new vacancy posted by developer MachineGames. The studio has been responsible for the modern wave of Wolfenstein games, so the fact that the company is advertising a new position suggests something is on the horizon (indeed, the MachineGames website shows a number of job openings). The senior animator listing specifically states that applicants must be familiar with the developer’s prior releases.
Is B.J. back?

It’s still early days to say for certain if Wolfenstein is poised for an immediate comeback. At the time of writing, there’s been no confirmation from official parties about whether Wolfenstein 3 is currently in the works. We already know that MachineGames is making an Indiana Jones game. These new positions could be related to that project. But it’s really just a matter of when in terms of Wolfenstein’s triumphant return.

Sonic the Hedgehog co-creator Yuji Naka reportedly is currently facing a potential prison sentence of two and a half years and a $1.2 million fine over his involvement in a recent insider trading scandal at Square Enix during his time with the company.

Abema Times reported (via VGC) that the reason for the prosecutor’s office at the Toko District Court pushing for a prison sentence of over two years is due Naka had shown no signs of remorse over his crimes.

The punishment is being requested by the prosecutor’s office at the Toko District Court, who argue that Naka had violated Japan’s Financial Instruments and Exchange Act, stating Naka had shown “no signs of remorse” for the offense. Naka was first arrested in November 2022 under suspicion that he had used insider knowledge in order to draw large sums of money on the stock market. Naka was then re-arrested again a month later on additional charges.

The prosecution argues that Naka, alongside fellow former Square Enix employee Taisuke Sazaki, knowingly invested in Japanese developer ATeam Entertainment, ahead of the announcement that the studio would be developing 2021 mobile release Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier. Naka reportedly purchased 120,000 shares in ATeam at a cost of around 144.7 million yen (roughly $834,000 USD).

In a separate incident, Naka, Sazaki, and a third employee, Fumiaki Suzuki, were charged with purchasing stock in another studio, Aiming, ahead of Square Enix revealing that it would be working on Dragon Quest: Tact. In this instance, Naka was accused of having purchased 47 million (roughly $336,300 USD) of shares before the public announcement. The prosecution believed Naka ascertained the details ahead of time by accessing an internal website containing meeting transcriptions.

Naka’s defense team is hoping to reduce the fine and is currently seeking a suspended sentence in the hope of preventing Naka from serving any jail time. A final verdict is expected in July.

Naka left Square Enix in 2021, following the critical and commercial failure of lurid platformer Balan Wonderworld. After the fact, Naka would also file suit against the publisher, arguing that he had been removed from Balan’s development six months ahead of its much-maligned release.

Capcom recently released a new survey asking fans which game in the Resident Evil series should be the next to get the remake treatment.

This question did not have any games listed as choices to select from and instead was entirely left up to the person to fill in the game name as their choice in a blank text box.

Quote:

The recent survey poses a few questions about how well people know what’s happening in the world of Resident Evil. For example, people are asked whether they follow any of the official social media channels, as well as how familiar they are with the entries, be they games or movie adaptations. One of the final questions then gives you the chance to suggest which installment you’d like to see a remake of.

With Capcom flying high in terms of sales, no doubt the studio is interested in where to take things from here. It should be pointed out that the survey results won’t necessarily mean there’ll be another RE remake in the pipeline. However, there have already been rumors that the series’ 2009 release, Resident Evil 5 could be getting reimagined, but there’s no solid evidence for that yet.

Given that the remake of Resident Evil 4 has sold millions of copies, it’s not surprising that Capcom wants to keep bringing back older entries. At this point, however, anything past the fourth entry doesn’t quite fit the “classic” status of the earlier installments. RE5 is certainly a mainline series entry but arguably may not necessarily warrant a full remake.

Today's News:
* Square Enix is currently rumored to be "slightly panicked" over the lower than expected pre-orders for their upcoming Final Fantasy XVI game, according to gaming journalist Imran Khan. Khan reported that even after adjusting their expectations due to FF XVI being PS5 exclusive compared to FF XV, the game is still performing below than expected in terms of pre-orders made. Khan also reported that it is currently rumored that Square's recent announcement of Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth still being in development and targeted for this winter was made in reaction to the current situation with FF XVI's pre-orders numbers.

* During today's Apple Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple CEO Tim Cook officially revealed Apple's new AR/VR headset called Apple Vision Pro that is currently set for an early 2024 release and is currently priced at $3,499.

It’s arguably the most exciting piece of tech to come out of Apple since the iPod. Looking at the Vision Pro and how it works is some real sci-fi shit, technology I thought was still years away. But it’s actually less than a year away.

There is a lot going on under the hood with Apple Vision Pro, including two chips (the M2 and the R1), 23 million pixels across the device’s two screens, eye-tracking, gesture tracking, and 4K video resolution that will be rendered at scale. As if it wasn’t hard enough to get people to look away from their screens, one device feature is EyeSight, which reveals your eyes when you start talking to somebody else in the room. Because heaven forbid you take it off your head when talking to others.

While the showcase focused more on how Apple Vision Pro will take your apps off your iPhone, iPad, and iMac and display them as virtual screens in your real world, it also emphasized that gaming will be a part of the experience. One hundred Apple Arcade games will be available on day one, and the device is compatible with standard video game controllers. The feature I’m most excited about is being able to watch movies on virtual screens of any size. While I still prefer going to a real theater to watch films, something like that will greatly improve the home theater experience. If you’re wondering about battery life, you can run this thing for two hours before needing to recharge or you can plug it in for continuous use.
