From Mega Man With Love / 10th of August 2014
There have been a few announcements emerging this week from the gaming industry, with Nintendo showing off the first screens showing Ganondorf as a playable character in the upcoming Wii U title Hyrule Warriors, and Crytek announcing that its Xbox One exclusive, Ryse: Son of Rome, would be making its to PC with all of the downloadable content and running in 4K. On top of that though, there were a few other interesting titbits that emerged…
Square-Enix have announced the Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy Curtain Call competition which tasks Final Fantasy fans with recording their own music video with them singing, whistling or playing the series’ iconic main theme. Sounds like a lot of work, right? Well, the rewards for winning this competition aren’t too shabby at all though, seeing the overall winner snag themselves two tickets to an upcoming Distant Worlds concert, a copy of the game signed by none other than Nobuo Uematsu himself, a Final Fantasy Static Arts Mini Figure and a limited edition, Japanese Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy 3DS. As if that wasn’t enough, the winner will also receive the entire soundtrack collection from the fourteen thus far released numeric Final Fantasy titles-that’s more than thirty discs of music! For more information, please visit the official website.
The cult 2D platformer, La Mulana, which was originally released on PC in Japan back in 2005, is set to get a worldwide release on the PS Vita after Rising Star partnered with developer, Pygmy Studios, to bring the classic game to a wider audience. La Mulana EX is set to feature the same mix of action and puzzle solving, along with vastly improved visuals to ensure that Vita owners get the ultimate version of the game. The bad news though, is that no release date has been announced yet.
Lastly, it was announced that Casey Hudson, who served as director and executive producer on the Mass Effect trilogy, has decided to part company with BioWare, a company that he spent close to sixteen years with, including work on such titles as MDK 2 and Neverwinter Nights. Though we are saddened to hear this, we hope that he continues to bring us new worlds to explore as he moves on to the next chapter of his illustrious career. We wish him luck in his future endeavours, and we thank him for what he has given us all thus far.
