Sega To Reveal What's Next For Sonic The Hedgehog At SXSW

The panel list for South by Southwest, or SXSW, has been revealed, with Sega holding a panel titled "Gotta Go Fast," obviously having to do with Sonic the Hedgehog and promises of what's to come.

"Sonic is back, and ready to take 2018 by storm," the panel description reads. "Join the official team from SEGA who are building Sonic’s future as they give you an update on last year’s strong performance of Sonic Mania and Sonic Forces, as well as the world-exclusive first look at what comes next for the fastest blue hedgehog."

The panel is made up of Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka, Sonic PD director Austin Keys, Sonic Mania animation director Tyson Hesse, and Sonic social media manager Aaron Webber on March 16. While the description refers to strong performance of Sonic Forces, the game was critically panned and failed to chart on any NPD report since release despite being released on multiple systems in November.

Capcom Financials Show Strong Overall Quarter, Disappointment In Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite

Capcom Financials Show Strong Overall Quarter, Disappointment In Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite

Capcom has released results for their third financial quarter of the 2018 financial year, showing great revenue overall but a massively missed sales target for crossover fighter Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite.

In the press release for the financial results, Capcom specifically points to Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite as tentpole game that contributed to the mixed results in game sales. Capcom's sales target for the game by the end of calendar year 2017 was two million – considering the license, this was more conservative than idealistic. Capcom reported here that the game only managed one million units worldwide since its launch in September.

Overall, Capcom has been positive about the quarter, with Resident Evil 7 hitting nearly 4.8 million copies thanks to the Gold edition, making the 5 million milestone all but assured, and Capcom describing the Switch game Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers as a "smash hit" relative to its expectations.

Diablo Creator Unveils It Lurks Below, Closed Beta This Weekend

Diablo creator David Brevik plans to hold a closed beta over the weekend for his latest solo project, It Lurks Below. 

Coming out of his Graybeard Games studio, It Lurks Below takes the dungeon-crawling and RPG mechanics of Diablo and melds them with the world-building elements of Terraria and Minecraft, adding a unique flavor to that formula. "I wanted more of a point to a lot of those games,” Brevik said in an interview with Polygon. “I wanted to make an RPG, with classes and leveling up, random items, where you get more and more powerful as you go down into the core of the world and fight baddies."

It Lurks Below is aimed for a Steam launch later this year and will include three modes: normal mode, an easier "creative" mode, and a more challenging "hardcore" mode, complete with permadeth. Players will crawl through pixelated dungeons armed with melee weapons and elemental wands to fend off monsters with their own Diablo-inspired tricks.

Glimpse Into Atreus' Past In God Of War Text Adventure

Text adventures have an archaic charm to them. There's something about the breadth of paths you can explore that pulls your imagination into their stories. It may be unexpected, but it's an intriguing method to employ for providing background to Atreus in the upcoming God of War.

Sony has partnered up with Facebook and crafted a text adventure through the social media's Messenger application titled "A Call from the Wilds." There are several chapters to navigate and eight pieces of concept art to unlock should you make it to the story's end. Considering that the text adventure persists if you close it, you can easily pick it up on and off to see Atreus through his adventure in the past before his mother's passing.

God of War is coming exclusively to the PlayStation 4 and will release on April 20. For more info about the game, check out our exclusive coverage from last month by clicking the banner below.
