Bandai Namco has announced that their newest Tales of game, a mobile title named Tales of Crestoria, will be coming stateside in 2019. While not quite dubbed the next mainline or flagship Tales of game, Crestoria has all the resources of one and will be releasing in 2019 on iOS and Android.

"Tales of Crestoria takes place in an oppressive dystopia where every citizen must carry with them an all-seeing 'Vision Orb' that monitors for criminal violations," Bandai Namco writes. "The game follows protagonists Kanata, a naive boy blindly accepting of to the Vision Orbs’ justice, and Misella, an audacious orphan unbridled in her dedication to defending Kanata. Due to the horrific events of one fateful night, the duo find themselves branded “Transgressors”, and condemned to death by society’s popular vote—the draconian system of justice by which their world is governed. With eyes now opened to the injustices of society, a chance meeting with Vicious, “The Great Transgressor,” gives Kanata and Misella a defining choice: Own your fate, or let fate own you."

To celebrate, Bandai Namco has released a concept movie to show off the themes of that description in a fairly cool artstyle Check it out below.

Sledgehammer Founder And Dead Space Creator Leaves Activision

Almost ten years ago, Glen Schofield surprised a lot of industry watchers and fans alike by announcing that he was leaving EA Visceral and founding a new studio at Activision called Sledgehammer Games. Today, Schofield announced on Twitter that particular journey is over as he moves on to further things outside the company.

I’ve had a great run here at Activision; 3 COD’s- MW3, AW and WWll- that I’m proud of. I feel it’s time to try something new tho. I’ll be leaving Activision end of Dec. and taking some time off to relax. Then off to something else exciting. Thank u Activision for everything!

Schofield founded Sledgehammer in 2009 under the auspices of Activision to work mostly on Call of Duty as part of Activision's plan to start trading off yearly titles in the series between three studios. As Schofield mentions in his tweet, Sledgehammer oversaw Modern Warfare 3, Advanced Warfare, and World War II. The last of those games was such a success that Schofield and co-founding partner Michael Condrey were brought into Activision's corporate team to oversee all of the company's games just earlier this year.

Panzer Dragoon I And II Remakes In Development

Earlier today, Sega and a company named Forever Entertainment announced that they would be co-creating and co-publishing remakes for Sega's Saturn shooter Panzer Dragoon and its sequel Panzer Dragoon II: Zwei. The first game will be made available before the end of 2019, if all things go according to schedule.

Forever Entertainment is a Polish publisher and developer which is known for a large number of games, but most notably the recent Fear Effect: Sedna. The company obtained the license through a Square Enix program that licenses out old IPs to developers that want to do something with them, which they certainly did as you can tell from our review.

The company describes the games as "refreshes" that conform to modern graphical standards, though it is unclear exactly what they mean by either descriptor.

Doom On Switch Gets Anniversary Update With Better Performance

It was kind of a surprise last year when Doom was abruptly announced and then quickly released for the Nintendo Switch. The game had to make some concessions to fit on Nintendo's lower-powered console compared to its PS4 and Xbox One releases, but porting studio Panic Button did a noticeably good job with a tough task. Now, a year after release, the developer is issuing an anniversary patch to, among other things, help the game run better.

Happy 25th Anniversary, @DOOM fans!
We got you a little something – an update to DOOM for #NintendoSwitch with increased performance, and you can now add recent players to your Friend List.

Oh – And video capture.

New Godzilla Trailer Makes Mountains Out Of Titans

Godzilla, the newest kaiju movie from Warner Bros and the latest film in their self-dubbed MonsterVerse, has finally gotten a second trailer elucidating a little on the odds stacked up against Godzilla. Of course humans are at risk, too, but that seems less important.

Check out the trailer below.

The trailer openly pontificates on the idea of weaponizing Godzilla, which is an idea that seems great with basically no flaws in it. Mothra, Rodan, and Ghidorah eventually make the decision way easier by wrecking things up in, well, a war of the monsters.

Stardew Valley Multiplayer Coming To Switch In A Few Days

Back in July, Stardew Valley developer ConcernedApe and former/sporadic publisher Chucklefish announced that multiplayer would be coming to the Harvest Moon-like game eventually. While it has been out on PC since August, the Switch version hasn't had any updates beyond a brief mention last week that it is in submission. Now it looks like we'll be seeing the multiplayer update in just a matter of days.

The update letting the game access multiplayer is coming Wednesday, December 12. The new multiplayer will let you build a farm with friends, get married, attend events together, and basically live the dream farm life with someone else. 

There's also a number of single-player improvements, such as a traveling night market, new characters, and your horse can wear hats. You can find the full list of changes and improvements here. Updates for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are also on their way, while the Vita version was confirmed not to be getting the multiplayer update due to technological reasons.

Sonic The Hedgehog Movie Poster Suggests A More Human-Like Hedgehog

The Sonic the Hedgehog movie has been a point of curiosity for a number of months ever since Sega confirmed its existence. A lot has been especially made of the film's choice to blend CG and live action, starring James Marsden and Jim Carrey in key roles along with an animated Sonic. No footage has been released of the movie outside of set shots, meaning there hasn't been a good look at Sonic himself, until a new teaser appeared today.

Courtesy of IGN, the animated movie poster shows a Sonic with decidedly more human-like proportions. The poster shows Sonic kneeling in a preparing-to-run pose and lightning bolts lighting up his silhouette.
