Travis Strikes Again DLC Features Playable Shinobu And Bad Girl Levels

In a livestream last night, Grasshopper Manufacture revealed the contents of the Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes season pass. While the pass has been rumored since a retail listing indicated it came with the extra content, neither Nintendo nor Grasshopper have officially acknowledged it until now. The season pass includes two new episodes, one which puts players in control of Shinobu and one that inexplicably gives players control of Bad Girl.

Shinobu was one of the assassins on Travis' list from the original No More Heroes. After severing her arm, Travis spares the schoolgirl samurai, who then becomes infatuated with him. She headlines the episode Black Dandelion episode, which comes with an adventure visual novel part for Bad Man. Shinobu's DLC episode releases on February 28.

The other episode, titled Bubblegum Fatale, stars another No More Heroes assassin named Bad Girl. Her presence is curious, since Travis definitely did not spare her, and her death is actually the inciting incident for Travis Strikes Again. After learning Travis killed his daughter, Bad Man pursues him and they both get sucked into the game console. Her DLC episode will release on April 30 and will come with a visual novel section for Travis.

The Walking Dead: The Final Season Will Only Be Purchasable On PC On Epic Games Store

In one more twist in the circuitous tale of The Walking Dead: The Final Season, it appears that the last few episodes of the final season are being published by Epic, which in turn makes them exclusive to the Epic Games Store for new purchases on PC.

The game's final chapters were in limbo when Telltale Games closed down abruptly, providing no severance or even any warning to the company's 275 employees. The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman's company, Skybound, re-assembled most of development team under the "Still Not Bitten" banner to finish the episodes off. It now appears Epic had some hand in getting the developers back together for the finale.

“The team at Epic owns a major chapter in the history of the game industry,” said Skybound president Dan Murray and Skybound Games CEO Ian Howe in a joint-statement released to the press. “We’re excited to work together on their latest transformative event with the launch of the Epic Games Store. Epic stepped up to the plate immediately to work with us in order to bring the original team back together and ensure fans will receive the completed season of Telltale’s The Walking Dead: The Final Season.”

Street Fighter V Moving Away From Season Passes

Street Fighter V Moving Away From Season Passes

When Capcom announced Kage, the even eviler Ryu, the other day at the conclusion of the Capcom Cup, he was not sold in or used to promote a season pass, which was unusual for Street Fighter V. The game had been rolling its DLC characters out in bundles as well as individually since the first season after the game's launch. Now, in what would have been season four, Capcom has decided to eschew the season pass model and only go with individual character sales.

The news comes from a Capcom tweet directly stating that there are currently no plans for a season pass for DLC and that all 2019 characters will be individually purchased through regular currency or fight money.

Kage can only be purchased individually with Fight Money or real currency. We currently have no plans to offer a Season Pass for the 2019 DLC characters. Stay tuned for information on future updates!

Sonic Mania Adventures Gets A New Holiday Episode

Sonic Mania Adventures Gets A New Holiday Episode

During the run up to Sonic Mania Plus' release, Sega produced and broadcasted a number of Sonic Mania shorts. Hearkening back to early animation vignettes, the wordless episodes were still entertaining and worth watching the full compilation. Today, Sega released a holiday special coda to the series, this time starring Mecha Sonic and a hereto unseen character in the Sonic Mania canon.

Check out the holiday episode below.

The episode takes place immediately after part 5, where Eggman and Metal Sonic crash into the forest after being defeated by Sonic and his friends. Might this be teasing further content for Sonic Mania one day, as well? Probably not directly, but it does say Sega has certainly not forgotten how successful their retro revival was, especially critically.
