Star Wars: Rebels Teaser Shows Us What Happened To The Clones

In the Star Wars universe, we're led to believe people forgot about the Jedi in roughly 15 years. Services like YouTube and cell phone video recording obviously didn't exist at this time. Another mystery that hasn't been answered is what happened to the armies of clones that were manufactured between the events of the Clone Wars and the creation of the Death Star.

All signs point toward us getting the answer in the second season of Star Wars: Rebels. The latest teaser trailer for this upcoming season shows us a few clones are alive and well.

Check out the video below, and, if you haven't watch the first season of Rebels yet, do so now! You're missing out on a fun chapter in Star Wars' new canon. It's a little cheesy at times, and the stormtroopers can't hit anything with their blasters, but there are great moments in almost every episode. It's well worth your time.

Rumor: Konami Pulls Plug On All AAA Development Except For PES

about X hours ago from

Multiple sites are reporting that Konami has made the decision to move away from triple-A game development almost entirely. The company allegedly has no plans to pursue Metal Gear or Silent Hills titles, which marks a change from recent public statements.

Gameblog, which first reported the departure of Julien Merceron, shared news from internal sources about the change. Konami has not responded to our requests for comment on Merceron, neither denying or confirming his departure.

Today, Gameblog reports that despite Konami’s insistence that the Metal Gear series will continue without creator Hideo Kojima, the publisher has no plans to pursue it. Eurogamer was able to confirm Gameblog’s report, and both indicate that except for Pro Evolution Soccer, triple-A development is winding down at Konami.

Konami Announces New DLC For MGS V: The Phantom Pain

Konami Announces New DLC For MGS V: The Phantom Pain

During a stage presentation at this year's Tokyo Game Show, Konami revealed plans for some DLC for the recently released Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. It doesn't contain any cut content or other improvements; instead, there are new costumes.

The new gear includes outfits MGS 3 fans will find familiar, including jungle fatigues and an old-school sneaking suit. A tuxedo (typically a post-game unlockable in other entries) is also part of the package. Female soldiers will be able to wear suits based on the designs of The Boss and Eva.  Even D-Horse gets in on the action with some new armor.

Given that several of the new suits are inspired by Metal Gear Solid 3, it's possible that future DLC packs would feature gear drawn from other games in the series.
