WayForward Announces Shantae 5

Wayforward, developer of games like Contra 4 and Mighty Switch Force, has abruptly announced that the next Shantae game is in development and will release on pretty much every platform, including Apple's newly announced Apple Arcade subscription service.

The tweet announcing the new game is mostly free of details, simply announcing the platforms and that the game exists. Unlike other Shantae games, it eschews a subtitle in favor of a number, but that could always be saved for a full reveal later down the line. Shantae 5 being an Apple Arcade title means it likely won't show up for Android devices, as Apple says games on Apple Arcade are exclusive to their platform. Obviously that only means for mobile phones, since Shantae is being released everywhere.

The previous Shantae title, Half-Genie Hero, was kickstarted so Wayforward could pay for development, but it does not appear that Shantae 5 needs to be. It is unclear if this is because of the support from Apple or due to the success of Half-Genie Hero. There is also no timing, but since Apple Arcade is launching in the Fall, Shantae 5 might make a good launch title for it.

Avengers: Endgame Is Over Three Hours Long

According to an AMC listing for the upcoming Avengers: Endgame, the much-anticipated finale to Marvel's decade-long and multi-movie cinematic universe's 22-movie run so far, the movie will run for 182 minutes, or three hours and two minute. This clocks it as the biggest Marvel movie yet, besting its first part by 33 minutes.

Marvel movie chief Kevin Feige previously said the movie would be "the perfect length" and that they were not concerned about time constraints. It seems Marvel and the Russos are definitely making the movie they want to make without worrying too much about runtimes.

Don't bring too big a drink in with you and get comfortable when Avengers: Endgame releases on April 26.

Ready Set Heroes Launches Later This Year For PlayStation

During Sony's State of Play stream it announced a new dungeon crawler, Ready Set Heroes, being developed internally for release later this year.

The game appears to be your standard cooperative Diablo-style game, but in Ready Set Heroes, there is also a second, opposing team running through the same exact dungeon at the same time, racing to be the first to the end. Once there, you duke it out for some of that sweet loot, but the first team there will have the advantage in the final arena battle. 

No more specific release was given, but it will release exclusively on PS4 in 2019.
