MediEvil PS4 Remake Gets New Trailer And October Release Date

Back when Sony last held the PlayStation Experience in Anaheim, California, the company decided to ease back on the announcement-packed conference and go for something a little more subdued. They still did end up announcing a new game, though, in the form of a remake of the 1998 action game MediEvil. Since then, Sony has been fairly quiet about the title, though we got our reintroduction to it with a story trailer today, as well as a release date for October 25.

You can see the first story trailer, which sets up the concept of the game and shows gameplay, below.

It definitely still retains all the things that people remember about the PlayStation classic. While I never got into the series myself, I know a lot of people who swear by Sir Daniel Fortesque as one of their favorite characters from the classic PlayStation era.

Monster Hunter World's Iceborne Expansion Coming This September

Capcom is nothing if not all-in on Monster Hunter World, now that it's become such a big milestone for their success, but they had been weirdly quiet about the game's upcoming Iceborne expansion. The new content was supposed to focus on a more wintry setting and was indeed supposed to launch in Fall or Winter of 2019, but it looks like we'll actually be playing it a little bit earlier on September 6.

The news comes from Sony's State of Play, which opened with the Monster Hunter World expansion trailer. Not only did it show monsters new to the game in deep snow environments, but also expansions to the game's New World with new monsters like Nargacuga, as well. So you won't just be in the snow trenches for this one. 

Monster Hunter World is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. While Iceborne is hitting September 6 for PS4 and Xbox One, it will be a few months later in Winter for PC users.

Kinda Funny Games Running Another Showcase At E3

Last year, in the absence of the PlayStation Experience as Sony pulled slowly started to back away from live game shows, gaming and comedy website Kinda Funny announced their own plans to holding a video game showcase in its place. Host and co-founder Greg Miller said he wanted to help expose the games that usually don't get major marketing pushes and thus held the Kinda Funny Games Showcase in December. Now, with Sony also not attending E3 this year, Miller and crew are doing another showcase for the event next month.

The stream will take place on June 10 at 4:30 p.m. PT, so between Ubisoft's and Square Enix's conferences, with the latter having taken Sony's former spot with their own live stream. In December, the showcase focused primarily on indie games with a few other surprises, like a localization announcement and first English trailer for Sega's Yakuza spin-off, Judgment. Interestingly, that now exists as a weird frozen point in time, as one of the actors in that trailer was removed from the game for cocaine possession

Dragon Ball FighterZ Celebrates Goku Day

Dragon Ball FighterZ Celebrates Goku Day

Hey everyone, it's Goku Day! You know those corporate holidays where a license holder uses a date from the year to get the fandom to talk about it. You might know other prominent examples of this such as May the Fourth and March 10 as Mario day. In Japan, they also do this same thing, like May 9 as Goku day. May is "Go," which is short for "Gogatsu," and 9 is "Ku," thus Go-Ku. Fun.

To celebrate Goku Day this year, Bandai Namco released a Dragon Ball FighterZ compilation of various cutscenes and intros of various Gokus in the game. There is no game with a stronger Goku ratio and this video goes out of its way to prove it.

Take a look and celebrate Goku in your own way while watching.

Sega Acquires Two Point Hospital Developer

Sega Europe has acquired Two Point Studios, the developer of Two Point Hospital, which Sega published last year. The game is the spiritual successor to Theme Hospital from Bullfrog Productions back in 1997. Two Point co-founders Mark Webley and Gary Carr worked on Theme Hospital while at Bullfrog, as well as other series such as Fable.

The signing comes under Sega's Searchlight program designed to work with outside IP.

Nintendo Lays Out Its E3 Schedule, Including A New Direct

Nintendo Lays Out Its E3 Schedule, Including A New Direct

Nintendo has revealed its E3 2019 schedule, and while it doesn't reveal anything particularly juicy, it does provide a general roadmap for when viewers can tune in to watch tournaments, Treehouse Live broadcasts, and a new Nintendo Direct.

The Direct will be taking place on June 11 at 9:00 a.m. Pacific. It should come as no surprise that the Switch is the focus of the livestream; the 3DS isn't mentioned in the blurb on Nintendo's official E3 page. After that (from June 11th through the 13th), the company is hosting its Nintendo Treehouse Live. Specific programming hasn't been revealed, since that would likely spoil whatever surprises are in store from the Direct. 

A few days beforehand, Nintendo is hosting international tournaments for both Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Splatoon 2 at the Ace Hotel in Los Angeles. If you're in town for the show (or for, well, life) tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis (go here for more information). Otherwise, the tournaments will be broadcast live starting at 11:00 a.m. Pacific.

The Creators Of The Super Mario Super Show Had Plans For Metroid And Castlevania

The Creators Of The Super Mario Super Show Had Plans For Metroid And Castlevania

Hey paisanos, remember the Super Mario Bros. Super Show, the afternoon block of Mario cartoons in the early 90s that behooved you to swing your arms from side to side? If so, you might also remember some other adjacent character shows, like Captain N: The Game Master and The Legend of Zelda. Turns out the company that made all those cartoons had plans for other cartoons based on Metroid, California Games, and Castlevania and boy were they something.

The news actually comes from an eBay listing, where a user by the name of Lance Cannon is selling some pre-production posters from DIC, which were presumably going to be used to pitch these shows. The California Games and Double Dragon ones are interesting, though not particularly notable. Double Dragon did get its chance at airing, but California Games was never released on TV.

Holy shit. Someone just put up promo art for The Super Mario Bros Power Hour on eBay! These were concepts for other video game based cartoons to run along side Super Mario Bros 3. None of these ever got past the concept phase. pic.twitter.com/eIFft21T3u
