I was already hyped for Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor, but this trailer that was released at Comicon made the story that much more interesting. Tolkien fans are in for something interesting as the identity of one of the characters Tirion will encounter plays a huge part in the history of Middle Earth. That means one of two things; either this is going to be a great supplement to the Lord of the Rings story or it’s going to be a huge disappointment. Either way, I’m excited to get my hands on this game.
Splatoon is a four-on-four multiplayer action game that drops players into a battle arena that two teams strive to claim as their own. Players of each team spray ink on the ground around them while blotting out the opposing team members in turf war competitions. Each character can turn into a squid-like character and swim through his or her own team’s ink – gliding up and down walls and under floors – with ease. Using intuitive controls made possible with the Wii U GamePad’s gyro sensor makes it easy to look around and aim, and the on-screen map displays the entire arena at a glance, both of which feel great and redefine multiplayer action. Splatoon is targeted to launch in the first half of 2015.
Nintendo showed off the first details of their new, open-world Legend of Zelda title. The game takes on a similar art style to that of Skyward Sword, updated in HD. During Nintendo’s Digital Event, producer Eiji Aonuma talked about how the game has changed for their new, more open experience that is inspired by the original Legend of Zelda.
You’re going to be tired of hearing me talk about this game until it comes out, but I’m really excited about this game coming to the Wii U eShop. This reveal trailer for Swords & Soldiers II shows off two of the factions in the game, one of which is new. The Vikings and Demons get the fight started with more factions promised to be released in the future.
This game from Monolith Soft can’t come out fast enough. Xenoblade Chronicles was my favorite game on the Wii and is easily in my top five games of all time. I’m so hyped for this game. X looks amazing. Check out this trailer if you don’t believe me.
