Footage Of Cut Mini-boss From Mega Man 4 Surfaces

Back in March of this year, Robert Hoskin uploaded a video of him and fellow Electronic Gaming Monthly ex-staffers Ken Williams and Ed Semrad at the 1991 Tokyo Toy Show. The video is a time capsule of the Japanese toy and game industry at the time, with several classic games on display. The video also contains a neat secret: Footage of a Mega Man 4 mini-boss that never made it into the final game.

A few days ago, Mega Man fansite Protodude's Rockman Corner found the video, pointing to the Sphinx-like boss that was originally going to be part of Pharaoh Man's stage. According to the fansite, fans had been able to find bits of pieces of the boss in the retail version of the Mega Man 4, but couldn't put those pieces together in order to resurrect the mini-boss. Hoskin's video shows the mini-boss in its full glory, as well as a few other elements from pre-release version of Mega Man 4.

Retail Version Of Binding Of Isaac: Afterbirth+ For PS4 On The Way

The Binding of Isaac is no stranger to new versions and ports. It's been updated time and again, and has released for several consoles over the years. After the game's foray into consoles as The Binding Of Isaac: Rebirth came two DLC add-ons called Afterbirth and Afterbirth+. The latter expansion is making its way back onto PS4, and will get some retail packaging to boot.

The announcement comes via publisher Nicalis' Twitter, which mentions that not only is the game getting a PS4 disc version, but those who pre-order may get a special bonus for doing so.

Watch Someone Play Level 1-1 In First-Person Using Microsoft's Hololens

Watch Someone Play Level 1-1 In First-Person Using Microsoft's Hololens

Mario's iconic first level has been recreated countless times in every level editor, game engine, theater production or cardboard box you can think of. But few of them have gone the first-person route, and even fewer have gone the augmented reality route.

Abhisek Singh has built a simple version of level 1-1 in Hololens, which we first tried out last year but has still not had a wide commercial release (it is currently only available for developers and organizations at price points ranging from $3,000 to $5,000. But though you may not be able to get your hands on Singh's vision of level 1-1 anytime soon, it's still a fun curiosity to see the level at this scale. It's also fun to watch people look on as a man dressed as Mario jumps his way through Central Park.

Dragon Ball FighterZ Adds Trunks To Its Roster

Dragon Ball FighterZ Adds Trunks To Its Roster

At its E3 reveal earlier this month, Dragon Ball FighterZ had only six fighters: Goku, Vegeta, Gohan, Frieza, Cell, and Majin Buu. This week we get one additional character: Future Trunks.

As Siliconera reports, the latest issue of Famitsu shows a screenshot of the character in action, performing what looks to be a super move. Future Trunks is the son of Bulma and Vegeta from another timeline, wherein Androids 17 and 18 have turned the world into a post-apocalyptic wasteland. After realizing his current world is likely doomed, Trunks travels back in time to warn the Goku of the main timeline about the impending Android threat. He's also pretty good with a sword.

For more on Dragon Ball FighterZ, check out our interview with producer Tomoko Hiroki.

Weekend Warrior – Back To The Old Grind

Many of us are still suffering from our post-E3 hangover. That means returning to the games we abandoned for a week and trying to figure out what the hell we were last doing before we saved. It also means that as the dust settles and the hype has worn off from last week's reveals, we're reflecting on what we just witnessed over the past week. So what do you think? Apart from what you'll be playing, let us know in the comments how you feel about the announcements one week later. And for what we thought be sure to check out our Best of E3 Awards.

Jared Koncsol (@JaredKoncsol) – I started Doom a few days ago, so I’ll be finishing that up. I’m also hoping to get into NBA 2K17 some, but I finally broke down and ordered Overwatch so my life can become the unceasing sinkhole I’ve always wanted it to be.

Brian Shea (@BrianPShea) – I feel like it’s the same story for me every weekend at this point: Persona 5 and Overwatch.
