Rayman Legends, previously a Wii-U exclusive, is making its way to PS3 later this year and will include an exclusive Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag skin.
The skin is based on IV’s main character – Edward Kenway – and will see Rayman don his assassin gear on his adventure to save all the Electoons.
Barbara Gordon, more commonly known as Batgirl, is joining the fray in Injustice: Gods Among Us and this time it’s personal.
In DC Comics graphic novel The Killing Joke, The Joker brutally shot Barbara and is the reason behind her paralysis. Due to the alternate Universes in Injustice, we assume that Batgirl has either regained the ability to walk through technology or was never attacked. Regardless, she’s seemingly very annoyed with The Joker and hopefully we’ll find out more during her arcade story.
Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX – what a mouthful, eh? – is being released in North America on 10th Sep whilst Europe gets to play it 3 days later.
A pre-order incentive has been announced for both regions in the form of a limited edition artbook, showcasing concept art, character designs and other work that went in to bringing Square Enix and Disney’s fantasy RPG epic to consoles.
Cel-shaded RPG Borderlands 2 is receiving its sixth playable class in the form of Krieg the Psycho. In case his title didn’t make it clear, he’s a psycho. A psycho with really, really bad speech.
He, like Gaige the Necromancer, will not be part of the Season Pass.
Persona 4 Arena sees characters from Persona 4 and 3 return in a crossover fighting title to solve the case of the returning Midnight Channel, the place where the events of Persona 4 took place. With the return of the Investigation Team from P4, several characters from P3 and Arc System Works’ ability to make an in-depth and immersive fighter, can P4 Arena compete with the best of its genre?
Zen United has released a story teaser trailer for Persona 4 Arena which is finally releasing in Europe on 10th May, roughly a year after it was available in Japan and North America. Featuring a story canon to both Persona 3 and 4, fans can catch up with their favourite characters as they delve in to a new adventure.
Terraria, the previously PC exclusive hit which arrived on the North American PlayStation Store a couple of months ago, has finally received a European release date so that we can enjoy it alongside our NA relatives on PSN. Sadly, the Vita won’t be seeing any of this action until later this Summer.
Jazz. Kisses. Gigolo glasses. What do they all have in common? They’re all featured in wacky, upcoming hack & slash title Killer is Dead.
Developer Grasshopper Manufacture aren’t new to excess blood, animated graphics and iconic women as made evident by their previous works including No More Heroes and Lollipop Chainsaw. All of which come from the creative mind of Goichi Suda, more commonly known as Suda 51.
With a game like Diablo 3 in-game experience points are important and are necessary to progress onward same as with most games within the RPG bracket. Blizzard seem to be aware of this and are offering a XP-boosting Infernal Helm to anybody who pre-orders Diablo on the PS3, and we assume, the PS4.
Capcom has confirmed that Resident Evil: Revelations, a HD remaster of a 3DS title of the same name, will grace us with a demo before the game is officially released.
Japan already has access to the demo and the worldwide release date has not been announced yet.
Skyrim, one of 2011’s highest-rating titles, is receiving a Legendary Edition which will contain both the full game, all released DLC and some extra features available through patches.
Bethesda aren’t new to the idea of releasing ultimate editions of their games a while after release, and so those who had the patience to wait will finally be rewarded in the form of saving money.
Dragon’s Crown, the latest title from Japanese developer Vanillaware, finally has a release date. It releases in Japan on 25th July and in North America on 6th August but sadly, there is currently no confirmed date for when the well-endowed title will hit European shores.
It is Sony exclusive and will be available on both PS3 and Vita.
Until Dawn, an upcoming game from developer Supermassive Games, was announced as a PlayStation Move exclusive title in, what we assume, was an attempt to sell more Move controllers by introducing an immersive horror experience exclusive to the motion controller.
A recent packshot indicates that you will now be able to use your DualShock to play the game, rather than requiring that you purchase additional equipment.
BEYOND: Two Souls has received an official cover art with a movie-vibe to it, in a bid to stand out in-stores. It releases this October, giving you the perfect excuse to stay in and get in your snuggie with hot chocolate to spend time with Ellen Page.
It’s PS3 exclusive and most likely Quantic Dream’s swan song before they begin developing a game for the PS4.
I’m sure you already know by now because you’re hungry for all the latest news on my upcoming game, but just in case you missed the biggest news of the century, I’ll let you all know right now why 2013 is going to be freakin’ awesome.
Deadpool, the game featuring me, your beloved and favourite superhero/villain charcter who’s the best at being both (suck it, X-Men), will be releasing this Summer so instead of wet t-shirt contests, water fights and parties that last all night, you can instead have the time of your life playing with me! (Eh, eeeeh?)
The EU release date of Persona 4 Arena is quickly approaching and, to make up for the delay, Zen United has revealed that you are now able to pre-order the Limited Edition available only at the Zen United EU store.
Consisting of many exclusive goodies that won’t be available elsewhere, this set is perfect for die-hard Persona fans.
Lobo, the villainous mercenary and bounty hunter for hire, may be the first DLC character joining the already established Injustice: Gods Among Us cast later this year.
If the rumour is to be believed, and the character model makes it hard to deny, then we only need to guess the next 3 characters that will be revealed as part of the Season Pass.
With Battlefield 4 being the worst kept secret since the reveal of the PlayStation Vita, it’s no surprise that more information has come to light.
This seems to be intentional but this may be another case of a retailer jumping the gun on announcements which seems to happen more often than not.
Namco Bandai has revealed a collector’s edition for Tales of Xillia which will release alongside the game later this year. It will release in North America on August 6th whilst Europe gets it 3 days later on the 9th and, lucky for Japan, they’ve had it since 2011 and already have a sequel.
