A while back, a game based on the Warhammer 40k universe was shown to be coming to Wii U. That game is called Space Hulk, a turn-based strategy game where you play as the Blood Angel Terminators and fight against the Genestealers. Well it received a release date earlier today for May 2nd.
According to the hub-page, the single player will be based off of the Sin of Damnation campaign. It will feature 3 brand new missions and will include the 12 missions from the classic board game. Multiplayer will be more like the board game pitting players against each other in a head-to-head battle. It isn’t known if the multiplayer will be local or online.
Not too long ago, Street Fighter V was announced as a PC and PS4 exclusive. However, though the game was announced already, it will be a while before we’re actually playing it. Capcom knows this and wants to get PS4 owners ready in the mean time with Street Fighter IV.
It was recently announced that Ultra Street Fighter IV will be launching May 26th for Playstation 4 and will include all characters, all stages, and all DLC in 1 package. This is definitely a good deal for those wanting to test out how the series feels on PS4, never got around to picking up the game on previous systems, or aren’t too familiar with the series in general.
Back in February Atlus announced Rodea: The Sky Soldier is coming in Fall of 2015 to North America and Europe on Wii, Wii U and 3DS. Now Atlus has given us an actual date. Rodea: The Sky Soldier will be soaring to North America September on 22nd and landing in Europe on September 25th.
A reminder, first print copies of the Wii U version will include the entire Wii game. All three versions will be available at retail and the Wii U and 3DS versions will also be in the eShop.
In the recent Direct, we got quite a bit of Smash Bros. news. Among the information was a trailer for Mewtwo, pricing, and a release date. For those who didn’t register both versions of Smash Bros., Mew Two will be available April 28th for $3.99 per version or $4.99 for both versions. If you registered both copies on Club Nintendo, you’ll receive a free download code April 15th. I can’t wait to use those ultra powerful throws on people once again. Also that Final Smash looks really crazy! Mewtwonite Y Mega Evolution?! Yes please!
Next we got ourselves another character reveal. Lucas came out of nowhere and is back in the fight! I totally wasn’t expecting to see Lucas make it back in Smash but I’m glad to see him. He looks even better then he did in Brawl. Mr. Iwata also went to on to note that he’s from Mother 3 which was released only in Japan and that they’ve heard the requests. I wonder if this is a hint towards something in the future? Who knows. Either way, having Lucas back on the roster is a huge plus.
Along with the two character reveals we also got another pretty big announcement. They’ve opened up a site where you can formally request new characters for Smash Bros. There’s no limits who you can vote for. This means if you want to characters to return or if you’ve been wanting to see characters such as Rayman, Crash Bandicoot, Laura Croft, Mickey Mouse, Wonder Red, etc. you can send your vote in. There’s no limits who you can vote for so definitely hop on over there and cast your vote!
There’s also new outfits on the for Mii Fighters which include outfits based on different games coming via DLC. You’ll be able to use a Cat suit, a Monkey suit, a Smash Bros. T-Shirt, Link’s Tunic, Link’s Tunic with Majora’s Mask, X’s armor, Proto Man’s armor, and Dunban’s Outfit. Each outfit will go for $0.75 per version or $1.15 for both versions. These outfits will be available April 15th. This is only the first wave of character outfits. There are more outfits coming at a later date as well.
Finally, most of this DLC will be coming out along side Update (Ver. 1.0.6). The update will include the DLC, it also will tweak the characters for balancing, and add in more sharing functionality on Wii U. Nothing really has been shown on the update itself but they did note that the sharing features will include Photos, Mii Fighters, Replays, Custom Stages, and “More” which doesn’t tell us much. I guess we’ll have to wait and see what the new features they add will be. The update will be available April 15th.
During the recent Direct, Nintendo revealed Puzzle & Dragons Z + Puzzle & Dragons Super Mario Bros. Edition (say that five times fast), Nintendo and GungHo’s new Puzzle & Dragons cross over game, and its right around the corner. It’s two games in one package, one game with a Super Mario Bros. theme and the other game with a more standard Puzzle & Dragons theme.
In Puzzle & Dragons Super Mario Bros. Edition, the game starts off with Bowser capturing Princess Peach. In order to rescue her, you have to make a team out of Bowser’s minions. You lead those minions with a team leader based main characters such as Mario or Ghost Luigi. To see some more in depth gameplay on both games, check out this video here.
Puzzle & Dragons Z + Puzzle & Dragons Super Mario Bros. Edition is releasing March 22nd for $29.99 in the US and is releasing in Europe March 8th. For those who want to try before they buy, a demo will be available April 30th in the US. No release date has been given for the demo in Europe yet though it is coming soon.
During yesterday’s Direct we were treated to more Splatoon footage. Much of what was shown was already covered before such as the Ranked Battles and Splat Zone but we did get some new information in the show.
Ever since Splatoon was first shown off there’s been a few people who have been wondering if the game would offer local multiplayer. Well, during the yesterday’s Direct, local multiplayer was confirmed for Splatoon in the form of Battle Dojo. Battle Dojo is 1-on-1 fights where the goal is to pop the most balloons rather then covering everything in ink. In this mode, one player will use the gamepad and the other uses another controller and the TV. It seems like a pretty simple concept overall but I personally can’t wait to have people step into my dojo.
The other thing they shown was they’re actually launching a Splatoon line of Amiibo’s along with the game. Using the Inkling Amiibo’s will give you a mission based on the Amiibo you used. When you complete the missions you can get gear and equipment that you can only get through those Amiibos. The Amiibos can either be purchased individually or together in a pack. Both the Splatoon series Amiibo’s and Splatoon will come out May 29th.
