While some players were disappointed that the My Time at Sandrock multiplayer side wasn't ready for launch this month, developer Panthea confirms that the chill Stardew Valley-style city-building game will add online play for up to four players "by the end of this year".
The sequel to 2019's My Time at Portia released last week on Steam Early Access, and going by Steam player counts it has already been a tremendous success. However, some players may have been taken off-guard by the lack of a multiplayer mode, which the developer previously confirmed was always the plan for the sequel.
In a new video, developer Panthea outlines its My Time at Sandrock multiplayer roadmap for 2022, and states that the plan is to release it as an update later this year. The team aims to hold global tests for all players in late August/early September and in October, so it seems likely the game's online side will be added in November or December 2022 - with support for up to four players.

One of the coolest Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord mods of recent years - which turns the medieval strategy game into a Warhammer game - just got its "first massive update", adding a load of new units, assets, and a devastating Celestial Wizard magic-user to the game.
We first checked in with 'The Old Realms' mod for Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord last year, where a group of dedicated modders brought the Warhammer fantasy game Old World setting to TaleWorlds' medieval game. It released back in September as a highly unstable 0.0.1 beta with the Empire of Man and the Vampire Counts factions.
Nine months later, the mod's latest 4.3Gb update (thanks, Reddit) brings it up to version 0.2.0, and while still only in beta, it's a lot more stable. While the 'Guns of Nuln' update doesn't add in any new factions, it does add a load of improvements. First and foremost are new units, including the Beastman and the powerful Celestial Wizard magic-user.Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord release, Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord battles, Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord PvP

Discotek Media announced that it will release Virtua Fighter on SD Blu-ray some time in 2022. It will have all 35 episodes with English subtitles. The first 24 episodes in the English dub are available, as well. Discotek will announce special features and extras on the Blu-ray at a later date via the company Twitter account.
The Virtua Fighter anime first released in 1996, though it did not have the same story as the game. Anime Works dubbed the show's first 24 episodes. The company didn't finish dubbing the series due to poor sales. Discotek Media is the first licensing company since Virtua Fighter's original dub to pick it up for an English audience. An SD Blu-ray contains the episodes in standard-definition resolution, rather than the high-definition format of a standard Blu-ray.
Virtua Fighter 2 had a fairly bare-bones story, similar to Virtua Fighter 5. Both games feature a fighting tournament and a secret organization trying to create ultimate fighting machines. However, the anime retains the setting while focusing more on the evil organization aspect. The show had Shinichiro Miki (Lockon Stratos from Mobile Suit Gundam 00) as Akira Yuki, and Naoko Matsui (Dorothy Catalonia in Mobile Suit Gundam Wing) as Pai Chan.
The Virtua Fighter SD Blu-Ray is slated for a launch later in 2022. Discotek Media will post more information through Twitter.

Season 3 of KonoSuba has been announced, as well as an animated adaptation of the spin-off KonoSuba: An Explosion on This Wonderful World. Animation studio Drive will take over from Studio Deen, who worked on the first two seasons. However, Takaomi Kanasaki will remain the director. [Thanks, ryokutya2089!]
KonoSuba is a light novel, manga, and anime series. It follows Kazuma Sato, who wakes up in a fantasy world after his death. While it is an isekai, it has comedic elements in Kazuma's dysfunctional party. They inadvertently find themselves fighting the Devil King's generals through their daily lives. As for KonoSuba: An Explosion on This Wonderful World, the spin-off focuses on Megumin's past and how she learned her Explosion spell.
Aside from a show and a light novel series, KonoSuba is also a video game. This may not be a surprise, considering the amount of MMORPG tropes and references that are in the source material. A sequel to KonoSuba: Labyrinth Of Hope And The Gathering Adventurers is in development. The title will come out on the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.
KonoSuba season 3 and KonoSuba: An Explosion on This Wonderful World are in development. There is no news on when they will release. It is also unknown if they will air in the same anime season.

We've been seeing quite a few stories with mysteries to solve and secrets lately. The kinds of tales that get you wondering what a person could or should have done differently. For example, someone might wonder about that when playing a game like Gnosia. Summertime Rendering presents another situation that makes people wonder what exactly is happening. And, with Udon releasing its first three volumes at the end of May 2022 and last three in August 2022 and Disney+ showing the anime in Japan, it's really an ideal time to dive in.
The Summertime Rendering manga begins with a mysterious encounter. A young man named Shinpei is on a boat with a friend named Ushio. After she chastises him for not coming home often enough, she offers advice about telling people hello, looking for her, and protecting someone named Mio. Only after that introduction does Shinpei "wake up." It turns out he's on a ferry heading to Hitogashima to attend Ushio's funeral. It's also then that Mio comes racing on her bike to meet him.
It's then that Summertime Rendering gets not only Shinpei and Mio, but the reader, guessing what's going on. The story is that Ushio died while saving a young girl who was drowning. However, Shinpei's talks with people he grew up with and who were around at the time suggest something more could be going on. The town's police officer seems to be investigating. Then, there's the rumor about the Shadow Sickness. When Shinpei and Mio are talking about what happened to Ushio and the girl she saved, Mio brings up an encounter the child had. That's when an elderly man brings up an illness that can affect people on the island.
It all comes in at such a steady pace. Summertime Rendering is setting up these little touch points. There are clues hinting about certain things to potentially expect. But then, the story still manages to surprise you with some twists. As an example, I didn't expect the level of fanservice present in its introduction. For example, Ushio is in a swimsuit when we first meet her. When Shinpei encounters a mysterious woman on the ferry for the first time, he's waking up face-first in her breasts. After Mio races to Shinpei to greet him, her bike can't stop and we see her underwear. While it would be a spoiler to explain why I think it is appropriate in retrospect, all of this establishes a sort of tone. Which then make subsequent events feel like they hit harder.
Since we are starting to see stories with situations like this more frequently, it becomes about seeing not only what is going on in the Summertime Rendering manga. It is also about how Yasuki Tanaka will make it stand out among its contemporaries. The things that are happening here. The way it builds out. How Shinpei addresses situations and uses what he learns.
Not to mention, well, it's appropriate because of the season. This is a mystery set in the summer. It's on an island. There's the whole ambiance of swimming, festivals, and small town life. Again, not to offer any spoilers, but Summertime Rendering tells the sort of story that could work at any time of year. But it feels especially effective now.
After going through the first volume of the Summertime Rendering, it really feels like the optimal time for this story to reach more people. The setting in-game, the appearance of its anime adaptation, and the fact that these sorts of tales are coming up more frequently really helps set the stage for it.

During Good Smile Company's WonHobby G announcements, it showed off three upcoming Hololive figures. Pop Up Parade figures of Minato Aqua and Tokino Sora will appear in the near future. The prototypes for both, as well as one of a Houshou Marine figma, already have paint on them, giving a good idea of how the final product will look.
While there are no release windows yet for any of the Hololive figures, they look mostly complete. The Minato Aqua figure has her making a heart with her hands, while Tokino Sora has one arm high in the air. Both of these are Pop Up Parades, which means that they have a fixed pose you cannot change.
[gallery columns="2" ids="928419,928418" link="file"]
Since the Houshou Marine figure is a figma, you will be able to move her limbs and body as you wish. From the picture on the WonHobby G website, she appears to have joints on her elbows, knees, ankles, and chest. It is unclear if you will be able to remove her captain hat.

Hololive is not the only VTuber group for whom Good Smile Company will release figures. During WonHobby G, it also revealed upcoming Nendoroids of Nyatasha Nyanners and Ironmouse from VShojo. While there is a painted prototype of Nyatasha, Ironmouse is still in the concept art stage. VShojo is an American-based VTuber company that primarily streams on Twitch.
The Minato Aqua, Tokino Sora, and Houshou Marine Hololive figures will appear in the near future.
