     Wuthering Waves tier list for 1.0 - best characters June 2024

Looking for the best Wuthering Waves tier list? The best Resonators can make all the difference when clearing dungeons or endgame challenges like Tower of Adversity. Whether you're looking for a devastating damage dealer or a stalwart support, new characters are constantly arriving in Wuthering Waves, and it can be tough to work out the best units and synergies in the roster. That's where we come in.

Our definitive WuWa tier list is here to help you decide which Wuthering Waves characters to draft onto your team and who to pull for in limited-time Wuthering Waves banners. This tier list comes with the caveat that combat in Wuthering Waves is more reaction-based than other gacha games, and the best units often require good reflexes to help them perform at their best. We also expect the meta to change dramatically as more characters arrive in future updates, so check back regularly to keep up with the rising (and falling) stars. Nevertheless, here are the best characters in Wuthering Waves 1.0 in descending order.

I must now hang my head and await the executioner's ludicrously oversized hammer, for while Phantom Blade Zero's ambience and layouts owe something to From's work, the moment-to-moment has just as much in common with older hack-and-slash games such as Ninja Gaiden.

Genshin Impact Cloud Version Open Beta Begins, Costs Money to Play

HoYoVerse announced that the Genshin Impact Cloud version open beta is now open in the US and Canada. However, while it is free to download on a PC, iOS device, or Android device, someone will need to pay real money to keep playing.

The idea behind this version of Genshin Impact is that you can play on any PC or mobile device without any additional downloads. Progress is carried over, once you log into it. However, in order to keep playing, you need to either purchase a 30-day Cloud Pass to have unlimited access or Cloud Coins to play for certain amounts of minutes.

A free trial is in effect for the Genshin Impact Cloud version. However, it is limited. When you log in for the first time, the five-hour (300 minute) free trial is automatically credited to your account. You can also get 15 free minutes every day that you log in. However, the total amount of free time you can get is 600 minutes. After you hit that limit, you must always pay for access. 

If someone buys a Cloud Pass for Genshin Impact, it costs $19.99, while Cloud Coins are available in various bundles. The smallest Cloud Coin bundle gives you 1,800 for $1.99. The game costs 10 Cloud Coins per minute to play. So that bundle gives you three hours worth of game time. The largest bundle is 14,000 Cloud Coins for $14.99, which is just over 23 hours worth of time.

Genshin Impact is available on the PS4, PS5, PC, and mobile devices. The Cloud version is in its beta phase in Bangladesh, Cambodia, Canada, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore, Thailand, the Philippines, and the United States.

si-gu-mi paper art puzzles based on Gundam mobile suit Zaku II

Bandai Namco's subsidiary Plex has opened pre-orders for new sets of paper art puzzles that feature the Zaku II mobile suits from the first Gundam anime show. People who reside in Japan can place their orders on the Japanese Premium Bandai web store. [Thanks, Hobby Watch!]

The puzzle sets will be available in two versions: The regular mass-produced MS-06F Zaku II and the MS-06S commander variant painted in Char Aznable's custom color. Both sets will have the same price tag of 4,800 yen (~$30.55). Each package will come with an instruction manual and four paper sheets containing the puzzle parts.

Each version will also have a different pose and total height. The regular Zaku II will have an overall height of 125mm (~4.92 in) and come with a bazooka. Meanwhile, the Char custom variant will be around 133mm (~5.24 in) tall while including a machine gun.

Here are some of the sample images for each set, including their full dimensions in millimeters:

The Gundam franchise has been most famous for its plastic-based Gunpla model kits, but Plex has also been releasing sets that use other materials. In late 2023, the same company revealed a ki-gu-mi craft puzzle set based on the RX-78-2 Gundam that utilizes bamboo in lieu of plastic.

The Paper Art si-gu-mi Pro puzzle sets based on the Zaku II units from Mobile Suit Gundam will be available in late July 2024.

Next Lego Transformers Character Is Bumblebee

Lego announced that a set based on Transformers character Bumblebee is about to take flight. The new release in the Icons line will cost $89.99 when it shows up on the official site on July 4, 2024, though people who are part of Lego Insiders will get early access on July 1, 2024. 

Bumblebee consists of 950 pieces to build, and the recommended age is 18+. It features two modes to it. The one allows you to see Bumblebee as a robot. This also includes a gun the character can equip. However, you can transform it into a Volkswagon Beetle. This is done by strategically moving parts around, like you would a normal Transformers action figure, rather than taking apart and completely rebuilding the set.

Here are some initial images, including one of Bumblebee as it is going from robot to car form.

This is the second Lego character in this Transformers line. The first was Optimus Prime. It launched in June 2022. It set the precedent for sets to have the capability to swap between robot and vehicle modes without needing to do any rebuilding. As that kit consists of 1508 pieces to Bumblebee's 950, it costs $179.99.

This isn't the only crossover product between Transformers characters and other merchandise brands. For example, many of them are also part of the Kotobukiya Bishoujo figure line. A feminine adaptation of Optimus Prime debuted in January 2023, and Bumblebee followed in August 2023.

Lego Bumblebee will launch on July 4, 2024, with Lego Insider Early Access running July 1-3, 2024.

mononoke movie cast

A new trailer for the Mononoke: Karakasa movie is out, revealing some new male voice actors voicing characters in the cast. The trailer is a lot livelier than the previous one, which focused more on the women inside Ooku. [Thanks, Dengeki Online!]

You can watch the trailer here:


As a reminder, Sakurai was originally the Medicine Seller in Mononoke. However, due to his adultery scandal, Hiroshi Kamiya replaced him. This is due to the plot of the movie focusing on the plight and struggles of women in Ooku. Considering the circumstances in Sakurai's personal life and the themes of the film, the studio decided to recast him.

The new cast members in the Mononoke: Karakasa movie, as well as their previous roles, are:

  • Hiramoto: Jun Fukuyama (Joker in Persona 5, Lelouch in Code Geass, Lawrence in Spice and Wolf)
  • Mizorogi Hokuto: Kenjiro Tsuda (Kaiba in Yu-Gi-Oh, Dainsleif in Genshin Impact, Nanami in Jujustu Kaisen)
  • Saburoumaru: Yuki Kaji (Eren in Attack on Titan, Meliodas in The Seven Deadly Sins, and Todoroki in My Hero Academia)
  • Sakashita: Daisuke Hosomi (Professor Fudo in Yu-Gi-Oh 5D's, O.D. in Gatchaman, and Inoue in Tsuritama)
  • Tenshi: Miyu Irino (Cyno in Genshin Impact, Sora/Vanitas in Kingdom Hearts, Jintan in Anohana)

The plot of the Mononoke movie will feature the Medicine Seller investigating Ooku. It seems that the women are conducting a strange ritual every night. As well, a very important ritual, Oomochi-zuki, was delayed and someone disappeared under mysterious circumstances. It will combine spiritual fantasy, mystery, and historical fiction.

Mononoke is available for streaming on services like Crunchyroll and the film Mononoke: Karakasa will air on July 26, 2024.

Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War Rangiku Figure Is Having a Drink

MegaHouse announced its next Bleach figure will be of Rangiku Matsumoto as she appears in Thousand-Year Blood War. It is the latest in the GEM Series, and people in Japan will be able to pre-order it from Premium Bandai ahead of its November 2024 release.  

Throughout the series, Rangiku is known for occasionally enjoying and partaking in sake. For this figure, she's wearing her Gotei 13 uniform. She's sitting on a chair holding a bowl in one hand, and an empty bottle can be positioned on the ground. As this is based on the most recently adapted arc, her hair is shorter than it was in some other parts of the story. However, she still has the pink scarf that is one of her most common accessories. The figure will cost 24,200円 (~$154).

Here is the official announcement for the upcoming Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War Rangiku figure. It included three initial images of the character from different angles. Based on the early photos, it seems like the additional empty bottle may be able to be posed to someone's liking. 


This isn't the first time a Rangiku figure has been a part of MegaHouse's GEM line. Another one appeared back in June 2022. This new one will be slightly smaller, as she apparently stands at about seven and a half inches, while the one of her using her Bankai was over nine inches tall. At this point, the older figure of her goes for about $259.99.

The GEM Bleach: The Thousand-Year Blood War Rangiku Matsumoto figure will launch in November 2024 in Japan. The latest anime adaptation is streaming on Disney+. Viz Media handles the manga outside of Japan.

snufkin melody of moominvaley physical edition

A physical Nintendo Switch version of Snufkin: Melody of Moominvalley is out now in Japan. It was previously only available as a digital download. [Thanks, Famitsu!]

The Nintendo Switch physical edition comes with the Cherished Keepsakes DLC of Snufkin: Melody of Moominvalley, as well as some paper stands you can display around the house. Cherished Keepsakes is a cosmetic DLC that you can use to give Snufkin some flowers for his hat, as well as a wooden mouthpiece for when he's just chilling and enjoying nature.

The limited version of the box will come with the game, the DLC, the original art book, the soundtrack, a pin of Moomintroll giving Snufkin a piggyback, and the paper stands. Depending on where you purchase it, you can get different bonuses. Ebiten will give a Snufkin keyholder, Rakuten a Moominmamma keyholder, Bookoff a postcard and sticker sheet, and Amazon a pop-up card of the theater.

While Kakehashi Games is only going to release the physical edition of Snufkin: Melody of Moominvalley in Japan, the Nintendo Switch does not have a region lock. This means that people from outside of Japan will be able to play it as well. You will have to import it though. Because of the bonuses, it might be a good item to purchase for fans of Moomin.

Cygames announced that Umamusume: Pretty Derby passed over 21 million downloads. To commemorate this, all players will get an SSR Make Debut gacha ticket. [Thanks, 4Gamer!]

The SSR Make Debut gacha ticket will guarantee that you get an SSR support card. However, the options won't be newer than ones that came out in January 2024.

In addition, a new horse girl named Jungle Pocket debuted in the game and she is available in the gacha. Jungle Pocket was a Japanese thoroughbred that won five out of thirteen races over the course of his career. He retired in 2002 and died in 2021. The horse girl version of Jungle Pocket plays a major role in the Beginning of a New Era film.

Umamusume: Pretty Derby is a multimedia franchise focusing on personified versions of famous race horses in history. While a good number of these horses were male in real life, they're all girls in Umamusume. Aside from the game, there are anime series and manga adaptations of the characters and story. So far, Cygames has not announced any plans to release the game outside of Japan. However, Google hinted at a possible global release back in March 2023.

It has been a very popular game despite all of its delays, making over 2.4 billion JPY. Over 72% of the money Cygames made from mobage between February 2021 and March 2024 came from this game. Even back in 2021, it was the third highest grossing mobile game, competing with titles like Pokemon Go and Genshin Impact. It reached this number within about three months of release.

Umamusume: Pretty Derby is readily available on mobile devices and Windows PC in Japan.

Fate Zero figure of Saber with Saber Motored Cuirassier motorcycle

Good Smile Company revealed that it will restock the Fate/Zero Saber figure that has her riding a motorcycle in 2025. It has also opened pre-orders for the new batch on both the North American and Japanese international web stores. The figure set will be available at ¥19,000 / $111.99.

This figure depicts the protagonist's Servant Saber with the motorcycle formally known as the Saber Motored Cuirassier. The character is also wielding her signature Excalibur sword on her left hand. The 1/8 scale figure has an overall height of around 160 mm (6.29in), with the motorcycle measured at around 290mm (11.42in) long.

Here are some of the sample images for the figure set:

Good Smile Company originally released this figure set in June 2012. That was around the time the TV anime adaptation of the prequel novel to Fate/Stay Night concluded its run after it launched in October 2011.

The same Saber-class Servant also appeared in Fate/Stay Night, which originated as a visual novel for PCs. Type-Moon is working on remastering the original visual novel for Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam while adding new English and Simplified Chinese localizations in 2024.

The pre-order window for the new batch of Fate/Zero figure sets of Saber with the Saber Motored Cuirassier will close on July 24, 2024. Good Smile Company will ship the restocked sets from Japan in January 2025 and North America in Q2 2025.

New chibi Devil May Cry series collaboration in Capcom Cafe

Capcom revealed that a new Devil May Cry collaboration event starring multiple characters will appear temporarily at its Japanese cafe outlets between July 2024 and August 2024. It will newly feature chibi illustrations of Dante, Vergil, Lady, Nero, and V. The event will be available at both Capcom Cafe outlets on Grandscape Ikebukuro in Tokyo and Daimaru Umeda in Osaka.

Capcom Cafe frequently holds Devil May Cry collaborations in an almost yearly basis. Prior examples included a Dante pizza burger in 2020. But while Capcom had held a collaboration featuring multiple versions of the same characters in 2022, it will focus on a single version for each character in the upcoming 2024 edition.

Dante and Vergil will appear in their Devil May Cry 3 attires, while Lady and Nero's appearances will be based on Devil May Cry 4. The fifth and last character featured in the key visual will be V, who made his debut in Devil May Cry 5, the series' latest mainline entry to date.

The new Devil May Cry collaboration event will appear at both Capcom Cafe outlets in Ikebukuro, Tokyo, and Umeda, Osaka, from July 5, 2024, to August 8, 2024. Capcom will reveal more details about the collaboration, including the menu and merchandise, in the near future.

You can also throw items at enemies and attack them with your swords. Defeating them can also let you level up.
