Devil May Cry Show Coming From Castlevania Producer

A few weeks ago, Castlevania Netflix producer Adi Shankar teased a new adaptation with a Japanese video game company. While the rumor at the time was that Shankar had procured the rights to The Legend of Zelda, the producer and IGN revealed today that it will actually be Devil May Cry that gets the next TV show treatment.

In an interview with IGN, Shankar admitted Castlevania "did crazy well," paving the way for Capcom's crazy party to get the green light. There aren't many details on how exactly Devil May Cry will get adapted, as Castlevania is based on a Warren Ellis script penned by the writer in the early 2000s. Shankar did say that his personal investment in the series means he gets more creative license with the property.

It wouldn't be the first time that DMC had gotten adapted, though, as a seemingly-canon anime aired in 2007 and tells the story of Dante's devil-hunting business before the events of Devil May Cry 4. Characters from that animated series are referenced in Devil May Cry 5.

Final Fantasy XIV Gets New Expansion, Job Class, And A Host Of New Features

At the Final Fantasy XIV Fan Festival today, producer Naoki Yoshida (affectionately known by the community as Yoshi-P) got on stage to announce a new expansion to Final Fantasy XIV called Shadowbringers. The new expansion is scheduled to come in early summer 2019 and focuses on bringing together the six allied nations to fight the Garlean Empire once and for all. Yoshida emphasized that the Warrior of Light has to become the Warrior of Darkness in the new content.

You can find the teaser trailer for the expansion below.

Stormbringers, uh, brings with it multiple new jobs that Yoshida decided not to announce yet. The shirt he wore had a picture of Bugs Bunny, which Yoshida showed off when hinting at a new playable race, most likely the Viera, rabbit-people from Ivalice. He indicated this would be the last new playable race they are likely to add.

A leak that came out before the conference rumored a Machinist job class, however, and Yoshida's motorcycle t-shirt seemed to hint at that, as well. The shirt also pulled double duty by having a picture of Bugs Bunny, which Yoshida showed off when hinting at a new playable race, most likely the Viera, rabbit-people from Ivalice.

The issue first came to light in September, when an anonymous Reddit user alleged Seon-woo had been assaulting his ex-wife since September of last year, after his loss in that year's Evo tournament. They alleged Seon-woo "blamed his wife for his loss in the tournament," and had destroyed her property and attacked her. "One day she tried to call police but Infiltration snatched her phone and choked her to near death and dragged her out of the apartment but fortunately neighbor saw him beating his wife and called police," the user said.

Report: Microsoft Working On Digital-Only Xbox One System For 2019 Release

Based on a new report, Microsoft is working on an Xbox One system without a disc drive for a 2019 release. According to the report from Thurrott, the digital-only device will carry a smaller pricetag – possibly as low as $200 – in an attempt to lower the cost-of-entry to the Xbox One family of systems.

Thurrott also states that Microsoft will introduce a "disc-to-digital" program, which will allow players to trade their discs in to participating retailers in exchange for a digital version of that game.

At E3 this year, Microsoft teased its next generation of hardware, which Thurrott originally reported was codenamed "Scarlett." This disc-less Xbox One system is not a part of that family, according to this report.

Fallout 76 Players Record The First Nuke Drop And Hellish Endgame Battle

Fallout 76 Players Record The First Nuke Drop And Hellish Endgame Battle

A group of Fallout 76 players launched the first nuke of the game right at a fissure site. They triggered an event called Scorched Earth, which tasks the players to kill a level 95 scorchbeast queen in under thirty minutes. The crazy thing is, they did it, and you can watch the whole battle unfold. Just keep in mind that the video contains a lot of strong language and the audio seems to be a bit off in places.

If you want to launch your own nukes in the wasteland, be prepared for a challenge. You first have to discover a silo which will have a unique code to unlock the launch sequence. Finding the codes can be tricky, since they only drop after you defeat certain enemies in the world. After collecting the entire sequence, you can choose where on the map you want to detonate the bomb.

If you are interested in seeing a more typical vault-dweller experience, watch us play three hours of the beta here. Fallout 76 is out now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
