Bloodstained's Story Trailer Shows Demonic Destruction Taking Place

It is not like Koji Igarashi, made famous for heading Castlevania during its exploratory Metroid-like days, has not been hiding Bloodstained's lineage and Castlevania influence. Igarashi is going to do what he does best. That comes across in the new story trailer for the game, which pits main character Miriam against the hordes of demons of the night.

Check out the story trailer below.

Miriam is played by Erica Lindberg, who is probably best known as Futaba from Persona 5. Zangetsu, who was the main character in prequel game Curse of the Moon, is voiced by David Hayter of Solid Snake fame. Ray Chase voices Gebel, who you would probably know as Final Fantasy XV's Noctis.

Games these days value robot "feelings" too much. That's the thesis posed by Blazing Chrome, a sidescrolling robot-blasting romp inspired by games like Contra and Metal Slug. Earlier this year we said it was one of the best games we saw at PAX, and that feeling only continues with this new trailer.

The trailer shows two players riding on hoverbikes, running along a train, getting murdered by a giant flying mech, and more. There's no platform information yet, but the developers are aiming for a 2018 release. If this vertical slice is anything to go on, the game is looking pretty swell so far. 

More info is on the game's site, here.

You might remember Mothergunship when it was announced a little while back. Since then, we listed it as one of the best indie games we played at PAX West and did a deep dive into the game earlier this month. Finally, the developers are ready to tell the world when they can finally get their hands on the game and it's only a few weeks until its release of July 17.

Mothergunship tasks players with taking down an alien invasion by blowing up everything between them and the mothership. Players gain gun parts and customize the weirdest and most powerful guns to blast their way through with their own creative methods of combining parts.

Check out the launch announcement trailer below.

Mega Man X Legacy Collection Changes One Of The Series' Oddest Localization Choices

Mega Man X Legacy Collection Changes One Of The Series' Oddest Localization Choices

Eighteen years ago, when Capcom was preparing to release Mega Man X5 on the PlayStation in America, the task of localization fell to third-party localization company Genazea. At the time, Genazea was headed by Erik Suzuki, the editorial supervisor for Resident Evil 2 before he founded a separate company to work with multiple companies. When Mega Man X5 rolled in, Suzuki asked his wife Alyson Court, also known as the English voice for Claire Redfield, to name the Maverick bosses in the game. Before X5, they were all usually named with a descriptive word and then an animal name – Chill Penguin, Crystal Snail, Cyber Peacock, etc. Court, knowing her husband was a Guns N' Roses fan, suggested that they name the bosses after Guns N' Roses references. This meant names like Duff McWhalen, Axle the Red (who has a rose on his head), and Squid Adler. They both liked the idea.

In the years since, fans made it clear that they weren't fans of the changed boss names, and no Mega Man title has taken that kind of liberty with the names again. The full story about it was told by Alyson Court in a now-deleted Twitter post from 2011, but Capcom themselves have never really commented on it.

Mega Man X Legacy Collection's X Challenge Mode Trailer Shows Harrowing New Boss Arrangements

Mega Man X Legacy Collection's X Challenge Mode Trailer Shows Harrowing New Boss Arrangements

Mega Man X Legacy Collection is following in the footsteps of the previous Mega Man Legacy Collections, but is going a step further with the new X Challenge Mode. 

The new mode pits X in a new armor set against bosses from the series history. Rather than being a simple boss rush, however, the X Challenge mode combines Mavericks from different games and puts them into a single room with X. The bosses are arranged by themes, like ice bosses Chill Penguin and Frost Walrus together, Spiral Pegasus and Dark Necrobat to represent light and shadow, and the genuinely upsetting combination of Vile and High Max.

X only gets to choose two weapons aside from the X Buster to bring with him to the fights, which is a lot harder than it sounds. You can check out a trailer of the X Challenge fights below.
