Overwatch Breakfast Cereal Announced At BlizzCon

Prepare to "amp up your breakfast with a sonic boost," because Overwatch just announced a breakfast cereal featuring Lúcio. Brought to you in partnership by Blizzard and Kellogg's, the new cereal is called Lúcio-Oh's and looks a lot like Fruit Loops ran out of every color but yellow and green.

In Overwatch, Lúcio Correia dos Santos, a world-renowned musician, uses a Sonic Amplifier to pummel enemies with projectiles. He can also push them back with the force of the sound blasts. Lúcio helps his team by either boosting their speed or healing them with his music.

Every cereal box comes with a special loot boost inside which you can redeem in-game. Lúcio-Oh's will be available in the United States starting December.

Orphea Is Heroes Of the Storm's First Original Character

Heroes of the Storm is about bringing heroes and villains from across all of Blizzard's games together to beat each other up, but its latest character is entirely original.

Orphea, known as the Heir of Raven Court and daughter of the Raven Lord, arrives in the nexus to put a stop to her father's plans (whatever those might be), when the game's next major patch hits this weekend (November 2-3). 

Orphea, who carries a big ol' coffin on her back, uses a slithering, Venom-esque companion to launch her special attacks. One spawns a tendril that drags enemies toward her, while another launches a trap that damages anyone caught in it.

Bryce Harper Revealed As The Cover Athlete For MLB The Show 19

Bryce Harper Revealed As The Cover Athlete For MLB The Show 19

The 2012 National League Rookie of the Year, 2015 National League MVP, and 2018 Homerun Derby champ, Bryce Harper will be gracing the cover of this year’s MLB The Show 19.

Because it’s still not known where Mondo will go next season, the cover art for the game currently has the six-time all-star depicted without a jersey. This morning on PlayStation.blog, San Diego Studio announced that it was partnering with the outfielder to reveal his next team on the game’s final cover.

According to the Chicago Tribune this morning, Haper's prior team, the Washington Nationals will make Mondo an official qualifying offer before Friday’s deadline, which means he’ll likely reject the offer because it’s less than he made in 2018. Harper became a free agent this off season after the Washington Nationals had a less than stellar run in the 2017-18 season. 

Undertale Creator Opens Up About Deltarune, Which Is A Long Way Off

Undertale Creator Opens Up About Deltarune, Which Is A Long Way Off

We've all been scratching our heads about Deltarune, a new game released by Undertale creator Toby Fox for free. The title baffled Undertale fans by, without spoiling anything, turning a lot of the first game's mechanics and story on its head without being clear how or why. On the game's website, Fox asked for a moratorium on discussing Deltarune for 24 hours so people could experience it fresh, and then released a statement about the game after those 24 hours were up.

If you haven't finished Deltarune and wish to go in fresh, then I would spend the few hours doing that, then coming back here.

"I will say that basically, what you're seeing here is not the world of Undertale," Fox said in a Twitlonger post. "Undertale's world and ending are the same as however you left them. If everyone was happy in your ending, the people in the Undertale's world will still be happy. So, please don't worry about those characters, and that world. It will remain untouched."

Blizzard Reveals Diablo Immortal

During Blizzcon, the company revealed that a new Diablo title was on the way but maybe not the one fans were expecting. Diablo Immortal is a mobile game that serves as a prequel to Diablo III, taking place 20 years before the events of that game. Diablo Immortal follows on the heels of Diablo III's release to Switch, another sign that Blizzard has an interest in bearing down on mobile devices for its properties.

The game is being developed by Chinese developer NetEase Games with Blizzard adding input. Immortal will allow you to play six classes (wizard, necromancer, witch hunter, barbarian, crusader, and monk). Blizzard hasn't revealed a price point, monetization plans, or a release date yet but hopefully we'll know more soon.

For more on Diablo III, check out our review of the Switch version of Diablo III.

Fans Are Already Editing Smash Bros. Trailers To Crossover With Infinity War

Fans Are Already Editing Smash Bros. Trailers To Crossover With Infinity War

Today, Nintendo murdered every character in their catalog, except Kirby. It was actually a pretty cool trailer, and Captain Falcon is a huge coward. The cinematic trailer for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's World of Light single-player mode bears more than a few similarities to the Avengers movie released earlier this year, Infinity War, which is not, like, super shocking. You can only really raise the ceilings on epic crossovers so much without them all bearing a resemblance. 

Fans definitely took notice, however, and there's already edits pairing the two properties, or ur-properties, together. Check out this video, which cheats a little by using the Robin/Lucina trailer from Super Smash Bros. for 3DS/Wii U in it, as one example.

There have also been reactions on Twitter comparing the two.

The second chapter of Stephen King’s nightmare-inducing book adaptation has gotten a release date. Coming to a sewer near you, Pennywise the Clown will be returning to the big screen on September 6.

Following the story originally penned by Stephen King, the film picks up 27 years after the events of the first movie when the evil entity known as Pennywise the Clown is set to return. At this point all the kids in the Losers Club have grown up and must once again face their worst nightmares.

Once again, Bill Skarsgard will resume his role as the infamous clown and the director of the first film, Andy Muschietti is still directing.
