Oh Rocksteady, you guys know how to make an entrance. After it was announced that Batman: Arkham Origins would not be developed by Rocksteady Studios, many speculated that perhaps the company had left Bats behind them. But with no new announcements from the studio and little hints here and there, opinion started to change to the idea that Rocksteady had abstained from doing Origins in order to develop a far larger Arkham title for next-gen consoles. That rumor turned out to be spot-on this morning as a trailer and a slew of information about the new title, Arkham Knight, hit the web. Hit the jump to check out the trailer and read on.
This. Looks. Dope. I was already interested in Guardians of the Galaxy based on what I had heard (it’s not a comic I’ve ever read), but after seeing this trailer it has immediately jumped to my most anticipated film of the year. Hit the jump to check out the first trailer for what is sure to be the most refreshing Marvel movie to date.
It’s really a shame FINAL FANTASY XV had to be announced so early. I know it was technically announced extremely late, as it’s been in development for almost a decade as FINAL FANTASY Versus XIII, but when you make as large of a splash as the title did last year when there’s still so much time to go in development things are going to get rough. As a result, fans have been clamoring for any and all bits of new media or news to fuel their beliefs that we could get the game either late this year or next year and frankly, the news has been a little dry. But now, to celebrate the PS4’s launch in Japan, there is a new trailer out for FINAL FANTASY XV and it looks utterly splendid. Hit the jump to check it out.
As is tradition, many studios tend to wait until the Super Bowl to debut new trailers to their most anticipated features and this year was no exception. Though we didn’t get the rumored Guardians of the Galaxy trailer (to my infinite sadness), Disney/Marvel did deliver a pretty fantastic new trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Hit the jump to check it out.
The disdain for Square-Enix’s first next-gen entry into the FINAL FANTASY franchise is fairly obvious, especially amongst die-hard FINAL FANTASY fans, which is why it has always baffled me that the company continues to keep pushing FINAL FANTASY XIII onto the public. First there was a sequel nobody wanted (which was actually pretty damn good, more than it had any right to be), then a tie-in to the stellar FINAL FANTASY XIV through in-game events. Square is trying hard to get the public to like Lightning as much as they do and their latest attempt is a third entry in the saga, Lightning Returns: FINAL FANTASY XIII, starring the aforementioned heroine and no one else.
With the release of Lightning Returns drawing near, Square-Enix has put out a video recapping the story so far in a retro style that harkens back to the series’ glory days on the Super Nintendo. Hit the jump to check it out.
It’s become quite common for DC Comics to pull an existing storyline of their comics for each of their animated features, and their latest is no exception. Today we have the trailer for Son of Batman, which inspiration from the first book in Grant Morrison’s Batman saga, “Batman and Son.” But something is just a bit off, and it could spell out some very bad news for future DC animated features.
