Get your horror game fix with Yomawari: Midnight Shadows new trailer

NIS America has released a new trailer for its upcoming horror title Yomawari: Midnight Shadows dubbed “Exploring in the Dark”.

Here’s an quick overview.

A summer night out with your best friend to watch the fireworks leaves you alone and scared in the dark. Pick up your flashlight and take on the views of two protagonists, Yui and Haru. The two girls have been separated by something seemingly sinister, and it is up to both of them to find each other in the night and make their way home. Along the journey, spirits, ghouls, and strange monstrosities will try to eat both of them whole. So find each other before it’s too late, because the dark is no place to be alone.

Yomawari: Midnight Shadows will launch for PlayStation 4, PS Vita, and Steam on October 24 in North America and October 27 in Europe.

You can check out the trailer below.

Mario Journeys Across the Country to Celebrate the Launch of Super Mario Odyssey

Nintendo has announced a Mario Odyssey tour, starting on October 10th. You can read all of the details below.

Mario is taking off on a cross-country tour to explore some wild and wonderful locations in our world. Mario’s real-life odyssey starts in Los Angeles at Universal CityWalk on Oct. 10 and ends in New York on Oct. 26, with many exciting stops in between.

By visiting one of the many stops on his journey, fans will have the chance to meet the Mario costumed character, take photos with him and his amazing decked-out trailer, and get hands-on time with Super Mario Odyssey on Nintendo Switch.

For the first time, the costumed character will even include Cappy, Mario’s new companion in Super Mario Odyssey who enables him to capture various objects, animals and enemies. Cappy also gives Mario new moves like cap throw, cap jump and capture, which define this new adventure and provide a fresh take on the classic Super Mario formula.

Mario will travel in style in a custom trailer featuring Super Mario Odyssey artwork, including a giant inflatable Cappy! At the scheduled stops noted below, fans can visit the trailer, take the Nintendo Switch game for a spin and even snap a memorable photo with Mario and his trailer.

Super Mario Odyssey is all about travel, exploration and that feeling you get when you discover something new and exciting,” said Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America’s President and COO. “Mario’s interactive journey in the real world is a great way for fans to get excited for the game’s launch by getting hands-on time, as well as following Mario as he explores and discovers locations all across the country.”

Mario will be making five major stops across the country that fans can visit, but he will also be making some stops to sightsee and take photos, just like any tourist … who also happens to regularly travel through giant warp pipes. Each of these special stops on Mario’s odyssey will look familiar to anyone who plays Super Mario Odyssey, as they are all inspired by Kingdoms in the game. When he visits big cities, for example, the Metro Kingdom might come to mind, while his stop at the beach will remind fans of the scenic Seaside Kingdom (sans Cheep Cheeps, of course). Photos from these locations will be posted on Nintendo’s Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr accounts, so make sure to follow along!

The Los Angeles kickoff event will be held at Universal CityWalk, with plenty of opportunities to play the game and take photos with Mario – the only celebrity in the city that knows how to triple jump. The final stop in New York will culminate with an event to celebrate the launch of Super Mario Odyssey. Taking place in Rockefeller Center, next to the Nintendo NY store, the event will feature game-play sampling and photos with Mario, as well as some additional surprises and guests. As Mario would say: “It’s-a the place to be!”

Mario, Cappy and the game are scheduled to visit the following locations, which are all open to the public on a first-come, first-served basis.

Chaos; Child Character Trailer for PS4/PS Vita

Most of us who love the Chaos series have probably already watched the anime and are pretty familiar with the cast.  But that shouldn’t stop you from checking out the latest trailer for the game coming to PS4 and PS Vita this October.

For those unfamiliar with the story:

A series of bizarre deaths strike fear in the hearts of citizens in Shibuya, Tokya.  A streamer dies on-screen, a street musician dies horribly on the street.  No one knows how or why.

As part of the school’s newspaper club, Takeru Miyashiro becomes fascinated with the mysterious deaths when he notices that the dates of the incidents match up with a series of murders that happened shortly before a fateful earthquake that killed his parents and changed his life years earlier.

Together with his friends and fellow newspaper club members, Serika and Shinji, his adopted sister Nono, a mysterious fellow student by the name of Hinae, and scientist names Mio, Takeru begin to investigate the phenomenon referred to as the New Generation Madness, and uncover hidden secrets that will put them all in more danger than they ever imagined.

Black Panther, Sigma, and Monster Hunter to launch October 17th

Along with their premium costumes, Black Panther, Sigma and Monster Hunter will launch October 17th for Ultimate Marvel VS Capcom Infinite.  All characters are part of the 2017 Character Pass.

Check out the latest character trailer below. 

You can check out an overview below.

Black Panther

When his father was murdered, T’Challa stepped forward to earn the mantle of the Black Panther, ruler of the technologically-advanced African nation of Wakanda. With his genius intellect, unrivaled combat expertise, and strong sense of justice, he rules over the newly-formed “Valkanda” and serves as its guild master now that his kingdom has merged with Val Habar, a desert town known for its monster hunters.

T’Challa can also cling to walls as well as jump from one to another in a matter of moments, allowing him to escape pressure, but to also pounce on an opponent from multiple angles.

Sigma

Sigma was the first and most powerful reploid created by reverse-engineering X. Sigma once protected humanity against Mavericks (reploids who malfunctioned and became a threat to humanity) until the fateful day when Zero’s stasis pod was unearthed. Zero awakened in an out-of-control state, infected with a mysterious virus, but Sigma did not. Corrupted, Sigma became the instigator of numerous Maverick uprisings. Now Sigma and his virus are one with Ultron Sigma, a being whose hatred towards humanity is limitless.

Using his energy sword, Sigma is able to control the battle by opening up dimensional rifts that linger around the screen, hindering his opponent’s movement options. Armed with a command grab and a counter teleport, he has options to deal with overly aggressive teams that may try to take advantage of his slower but imposing move set.

Everyone who obtained the 2017 Character Pass will automatically get Black Panther, Sigma, Monster Hunter, Winter Soldier, Black Widow, and Venom when they become available. You can also purchase these characters separately for $7.99 each, which includes their premium costumes as seen below.
