New Trailer for Kingdom Hearts III Brings the Crew to Olympus

SQUARE ENIX and Disney Interactive has released a new KINGDOM HEARTS III gameplay trailer featuring never before seen footage based on Disney’s animated hit, “Hercules,” which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year.

Fans will see Sora in a new form, which allows him to perform special powerful solo and joint attacks on his enemies. A new glimpse into the game’s storyline reveals a reunion with Disney villains Hades, Maleficent and Pete as they discuss the location of a mysterious item while Sora is faced with a dilemma in an effort to bring back an old friend.

Kingdom Hearts III is in Development for Playstation 4, and Xbox One.

Guilty Gear Styled Dragon Ball Game Leaked before E3

Today Bandai Namco has accidentally leaked a new Dragon Ball game titled, Dragon Ball Fighters.

Dragon Ball Fighters was originally set to be announced June 12 (Day 1 of E3), but the news broke out after Bandai Namco accidentally shared this information ahead of its official reveal.

The new title is being developed by Arc System Works, and will be a 2.5D gameplay style, which will resemble Guilty Gear XRD Rev 2’s art style. The game will also use a 3v3 team battle system, allowing players to create their Dragon Ball team of choice and will also incorporate the “ultra high speed battles” and “flashy special moves” that the Dragon Ball series is known for.

As of now this is everything known so far for Dragon Ball Fighters, until the official announcement is made, so lets just hope this title makes an appearance at E3’s show floor as well as EVO 2017.

Dragon Ball Fighters, will launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC worldwide in early 2018.

Ninja Theory’s new title “Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice” release date revealed

Ninja Theory has announced the release date to the upcoming title Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice. The title is set to launch August 8 for $29.99 on Playstation 4 and PC.

Users who pre-order the game on PlayStation 4 will receive a Hellblade dynamic theme that depicts the burning tree scene from the game. Users who pre-order on PC will receive an exclusive digital comic short, titled Hellblade: Senua’s Song, a collaboration with comic book publisher Valiant Entertainment featuring words by Hellblade creative director Tameem Antoniades and art from multiple Eisner Award nominee Ben Templesmith.

Here’s an overview of the game, via Ninja Theory:

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice comes from the makers of Heavenly Sword, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, and DmC: Devil May Cry. It is the story of Senua, a traumatized Celtic warrior journeying into the Viking underworld of hel. Supported by Wellcome and created in collaboration with neuroscientists and people who experience psychosis, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice will pull players deep into Senua’s mind.
