It's only by four days, though, to October 21st, which is sort of baffling.

Grim Souls-like Lies Of P will be hitting PC sometime in 2023 according to a new gameplay trailer shown at Opening Night Live during this year's Gamescom. The RPG combines the story of Pinocchio with some major Bloodborne energy, as the puppet searches for a way to become a real human boy in a decimated city. This is far from the classic fairytale story though. With a dark-gothic backdrop and mechanical killer robots to contend with, Pinocchio has his work cut out for him.

Portable monitors are pretty awesome - they're an easy way to get a dual screen setup going on a laptop, and also work well to expand the Steam Deck's rather modest screen into something a little more co-op friendly. Of course, they also work for desktop computers too - and are much more portable and space-saving than an average actual desktop monitor.
You can even get OLED models now - and a coupon code on Amazon US brings one model down from Innocn from $350 to $200 when you tick the 'coupon' box on the product page. That's quite a bargain for a 15.6-in portable screen of this calibre.

In what is becoming something of a theme for me tonight, however, the trailer doesn't really give much away about the game aside from the topline selling points. There is a tiny, teeny smattering of gameplay at the end, though. Big swords, big monsters, big magic, big sand.

The Subnautica devs are doing a turn-based, space-pirates, tabletop miniatures game called Moonbreaker
Imagine I have a weird alien squid pointed right at you. I need you to tell me what the developers of open-world watery survival game Subnautica are making next. Just, your best guess, or the squid'll getcha with its weird alien ink. Ready? Go!.... Okay, well congratulations to anyone who said "a turn-based strategy game inspired by tabletop miniatures". Unlikely as it may seem you were right, and everyone else was wrong. It's called Moonbreaker and it's hitting early access on September 29. And Brandon Sanderson is at this party, too.
I admit it was a trick question, but look, I'm a genuinely big fan of devs doing a completely different project after a successful game. I also know a whole lotta people who love painting plastic fighters in cool colours, carefuly placing them on a tabletop, and slowly pushing them into other plastic fighters in different colours. I'm absolutely sure that Unknown Worlds will make a very good version of a digital tabletop strategy game. I must admit, though, that whenever a video game like this emerges, I sort of wonder why tabletop-thusiasts would buy it instead of more actual miniatures.

Nintendo of Japan is cautioning players to choose the correct region for their first experience with Splatoon 3. The demo, which will host the game's first Splatfest prior to the full release, will only allow players to choose their region once.
Nintendo delivered the advice via a Tweet from the official Japanese Splatoon account.
The tweet laid out how the Splatoon 3 demo would work with regard to choosing player region. When players download the demo, it will ask them which region they live in or closest to. The current available regions are Japan, North America, Europe, and a combination region covering Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, and Korea. This will determine which region they'll be placed in when the demo's World Premiere Splatfest goes live. The wrinkle here is that a player won't be able to change their choice, which can affect their Splatfest's timing and network experience (if they pick a region that's very far away from their actual location). As such, Nintendo's advice should help some players stick a little closer to home to have the best experience with the Splatoon 3 demo.
The full version of the game will allow players to change regions periodically. There will be a "cooldown" period once a player opts to change their selected region, to prevent players from affecting competitive play or Splatfest performance. Previously, Splatoon and Splatoon 2 segregated players based on the region of the game installation. Splatoon 3 uses a uniform game region for all copies, with the local data determined by the player's system settings and selected region.
Splatoon 3 launches on Nintendo Switch on September 9, 2022. The World Premiere Splatfest demo is downloadable now and will go live on August 25, 2022.

Medabots S will have a new collaboration event with the Full Metal Panic! mecha anime series. Players of the mobile game will be able to obtain the crossover content for a limited time from August 25, 2022.
Imagineer will convert three Arm Slave mechs from Full Metal Panic! into Medabots with different names. It will turn the ARX-7 Arbalest into Kasimlest, the ARX- 8 Laevatein into Urzutein, and the Plan-1055 Belial into Silbelial. Medabots S characters will also receive new attires inspired by Full Metal Panic! characters, such as Sousuke Sagara and Teletha Testarossa.
The company has also uploaded a trailer promoting the new collaboration on the Medabots series' YouTube channel. It specifically mentioned that the title it collaborated with is Full Metal Panic! Invisible Victory, the third and latest mainline season to date that aired in 2018.
Imagineer has been holding collaborations with many other anime and game IPs for the Medabots mobile game that it launched in early 2020. The first tie-in with Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045 launched in early 2021. Since then, Medabots S has received more crossover content from other franchises like Digimon and Mega Man Battle Network.
Medabots S is available on Android and iOS mobile devices in Japan. The Full Metal Panic! crossover event will commence on August 25, 2022.

Prime 1 Studio has opened pre-orders for Devil May Cry 5 statues of Dante and Nero in their respective EX color schemes. Each statue will be available at $1,199, with the seller accepting payments in up to eight installments via PayPal. The 1/4 scale statues will have an average height of approximately 70 cm (~27.5 inches) and weigh around 16 kg (~35 lbs).
Each statue will have a number of optional parts that the owner can attach to both hands. Dante will be able to choose between the Rebellion and Sparda swords, or the Ebony & Ivory guns and the Coyote-A shotgun. Meanwhile, Nero will have the options of the Red Queen sword and the Blue Rose gun. The owner can also change his right hand to Punch Line, Gerbera, or Overture.
[gallery columns="2" ids="934130,934129" link="file"]
Prime 1 Studio will only produce a limited amount of these statues. It will make up to 350 Dante and 150 Nero EX Color statues, for a combined total of 500. The company will ship both statues internationally between April and July 2023.
Devil May Cry 5 is playable on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. An enhanced Special Edition is also available on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. In April 2022, Capcom announced that it had sold over 5 million units of the game on all platforms combined.

Bandai Namco's been on a tear lately. Between Gundam Evolution, Dragon Ball The Breakers, and now My Hero Ultra Rumble, the company's testing no less than three distinct multiplayer-oriented games based on popular anime properties. I got the chance to join the second My Hero Ultra Rumble beta test over the weekend. While there's still some work to be done on the game, fans of My Hero Academia may find a new place to tear things up online once it hits full release.
My Hero Ultra Rumble is a My Hero Academia-based take on the battle royal genre. Eight teams of three players duke it out for supremacy while controlling characters from the My Hero Academia series. Options include eight Heroes and four Villains, in any combination (though the game doesn't allow two players to choose the same character on the same team). On the Hero side, players can choose from Deku, Bakugo, Todoroki, Ochako, Tsuyu, All Might, Cementoss, and Mt. Lady. Villain characters include Tomura, Dabi, Himiko, and Mr. Compress. There's more room on the character select menu to add characters, but the twelve present feels like plenty to start with.
Like most battle royal games, players sprawl out over the map and usually spend the first few minutes scrambling for "gear". The gear takes the form of power ups and items. Items can heal you or add to your "Guard Point" gauge. GP is basically a Fortnite-style shield that absorbs damage before health, but GP is especially important in My Hero Ultra Rumble. That's because it keeps you from flinching or getting knocked around while it's up. Not having an attack interrupted is basically the key to winning an equal exchange of damage, so scrambling for GP potions is a big priority. Power cards can be equipped like items to provide a power boost when used, but can also level up your three powers. That's also important, as leveled-up powers become devastatingly effective.
Every character in My Hero Ultra Rumble is unique, with playstyles and unique actions based on their "Quirk" superpowers. It's fun to see how each character gets their power set boiled down to three moves and a unique action. Deku, in his Shoot Style outfit, can shoot air blasts from his fists, do a flying kick, and use a whip-like power to snare enemies and pull them close. As I'm not caught up with the show or manga, I had no idea he even had that whip power. His unique action is to carry a teammate that's been downed to safety. Other characters are a bit more unique. Characters are divided into "roles" indicating their specialty. Assault characters like All Might and Deku are durable, but generally need to get close to do their best work. Strikers like Bakugo and Todoroki can deal damage at range as well, and move quickly across the field. Technical characters like Ochako and Dabi specialize in using unusual strategies and traps to get the drop on foes. Rapid characters like Tsuyu and Himiko move quickly and can take advantage of stealth or hit-and-run strategies. Finally, support characters like Cementoss and Mr. Compress can hinder enemies with their unusual attack properties.
In practice this results in a lot of chaotic scrumming as people get into big brawls with powers flying every which way. It can be tough to get a bead on a single enemy in the confusion. No wonder that the first beta resulted in a lot of players taking full advantage of characters with huge areas of effect. Mt. Lady in particular can grow really big and simply stomp a zone to dust before her enemies can get out of the danger zone. Bandai Namco did say after the first beta that these characters would be toned down a bit. I didn't participate in the first test, so I can't say if they feel less overpowered than before, but they do feel a bit easier to use, because you don't have to worry as much about aiming or focusing on one target to make a big impact.
Personally, I found the most enjoyment in My Hero Ultra Rumble playing and watching experienced players use technical characters. It was a joy to watch a teammate in spectator mode utterly demolish two or three teams with Ochako. This obvious expert lured them into traps of floating debris, and sprang away to safety with combinations of Ochako's zero-G jumping and her grappling hook-like ranged attack. Once the game comes out fully, the early stages where people are finding out how to make all the characters work together might make for an exciting time.
Less exciting is the apparent monetization structure. My Hero Ultra Rumble will be free-to-play, but it'll be supported by the gacha. The game has a built-in "Roll" system and banners for cosmetic items. You can roll skins like the fantasy-themed "Parallel World" character designs, as well as things like emotes and voice lines. There didn't seem to be any indication that new playable characters or variants would be added this way, though, so it can be ignored to an extent. There's also a "shop" function where players can exchange in-game currency earned from matches for costumes. Not everything that was on the gacha was present in the shop, though.
Though My Hero Ultra Rumble is a bit of a rough and unbalanced experience at the moment, there's a lot of potential for a unique and fast-paced take on superpower-enhanced battle royal. It remains to be seen whether Bandai Namco can manage to deliver the variety a game like this needs to thrive in the long term, though.
My Hero Ultra Rumble will release on PS4, PC, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch in 2022.

If you were looking forward to Unknown Worlds Entertainment, aka the developers of Subnautica, announcing a new game that offers similar thrills to the famous underwater survival series, you may want to temper your expectations a bit. The developer has revealed its newest project as Moonbreaker, complete with a reveal trailer and word on a Steam Early Access release this September. Moonbreaker is a digital strategy game based around miniature figurines. It looks like the goal for Unknown Worlds Entertainment is to get in on a similar market to Hearthstone, which is understandably quite lucrative when done well. Moonbreaker is set to launch on September 29, meaning that it'll be released in about five weeks. Surprisingly, the game isn't going to be free-to-play and will instead require an initial purchase, at least in order to start playing during the Early Access period. The Early Access bundle will cost $30 USD, but will supposedly allow people who purchase it to af...

Dead Island 2 was revealed today at last with both a new cinematic and gameplay trailer, as well as a release date: February 3, 2023. The long-awaited sequel to the 2011 original looks to be trying to recapture that irreverent vibe the series became known for. The cinematic trailer follows a Lenny Kravits lookalike (one of the six new playable characters in the game) as he goes shopping at the grocery store in the hills of Los Angeles. Oh, and there are zombies. The trailer strikes a nice balance between humor and gore-filled action. A number of cute visual gags are interlaced between satisfying and visceral zombie slaying. However nice cinematic trailers may be, they are often not indicative of how the game will play. And at times they're not even being remotely similar to the final product. So it's a good thing we've also been given a gameplay trailer for Dead Island 2. In it, we are treated to shots of the zombie-infested streets of LA that serve as the open-world s...

I can't help but feel it's at least a little ironic for Deck13 to show off its next game during the same show The Lords of the Fallen was revealed. The latter game is a reboot of Deck13's action RPG Souls-like, but from a different studio. I'm sure it's fine. Deck13, which also created The Surge, has plenty else to focus on. Atlas Fallen, its new game, was revealed in full today at Opening Night Live with a trailer bursting with action. Well, it bursts with action after about the halfway point. Up to this, we're introduced to the world of Atlas Fallen. In a post-apocalyptic landscape choked by sand, you hunt monsters with shape-altering weapons. Sand seems to hold a great power in Atlas Fallen, as seen in the trailer. Weapons are made from sand, which also grants the use of magical abilities. Anakin Skywalker would hate this game. Sand also lends itself to your mobility. In the trailer, we see two characters gliding along the sands as easily a...

There's plenty to see at Gamescom Opening Night Live 2022, but it's up to you to determine which game is the star of the show. One candidate is Phantom Hellcat, a hack-n-slash adventure which provides entertainment in true theatrical form. According to developer Ironbird Creations, Phantom Hellcat takes place within a cursed theater where the protagonist incidentally finds herself in a tough predicament. The evil within has somehow taken her mother hostage, but there are bigger issues afoot as well. Jolene must find a way to both save her mother and prevent the twisted stories of humanity from escaping out into the world. The trailer is brief and to the point. It jumps straight into some gameplay, demonstrating how you'll dodge, parry, slice, and dice your opponents in melee combat. From what we've seen, the combat mainly caters to mobility and making flashy, short work of various monster-like adversaries. Cursed by design The emphasis on cinematic setti...

The game is described as an "asymmetrical multiplayer horror based on the iconic 80s film" and will feature a battle between the Killer Klowns and the citizens of Crescent Cove. A team of three players will make up Killer Klowns and they will utilize fantastically crazy abilities and weapons.
