Lando Gets Another Shot In His Second Comic Series

While Disney's reticence to reveal the Solo: A Star Wars Story trailer about 100 days from release has been concerning for some fans, the marketing has gone into full swing. In order to give fans a closer look into the stories and characters surrounding the upcoming film, EW has exclusively revealed peripheral material emerging out of hyperspace soon.

One of the most exciting reveals comes with Lando: Double Or Nothing. A five-part comic series written by The Boondocks writer Rodney Barnes, the arc follows the charismatic dealer and new droid L3-37 with an event set right before the upcoming movie. A novel is also in the works titled Last Shot by Daniel José Older. It, too, devotes time to Lando and L3-37, but also features an arc devoted to Han and Chewie meeting smuggler Sana Starros, who is a heavily involved figure in the ongoing Star Wars comic set between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back. A snippet of events after Return of The Jedi will be written about as well that includes a young Ben Solo. The book comes with a reversible cover featuring Lando, which book publisher Del Rey details in the tweet below. The novel will release on April 17, but dates for the comic series remain unknown at this time.

Overwatch Would Make A Smashing Fighting Game

If you've ever dreamed of punching Hanzo all the way to space, you can now dream a little more vividly. TGN posted a painstakingly-edited video showcasing what Overwatch would look like as a fighting game and it looks pretty freaking cool. Just see for yourself below.

The little details really make it shine, like the clever uses of highlight intros, Ana's sleep dart signifying knockouts, the character selection screen (complete with stats), and the classic vehicular destruction bonus stage. Now, if there was some way to include an assist from Sub Zero for a Mei finishing move, I'd preemptively give this completely hypothetical game a 10/10.

System Shock Remastered Put On Hiatus

System Shock Remastered Put On Hiatus

Today, Nightdive Studios was upfront with Kickstarter backers about the status of its System Shock Remaster, announcing it's currently on hold.Nightdive Studios announced a remaster of the beloved sci-fi game via Kickstarter in June of 2016. The campaign was more successful than the developer ever imagined, with over 21,000 backers lending over $1.3 million for it.

Nightdive Studios CEO Stephen Kick says the team got to work quickly but got overly ambitious – to point where it felt like they were creating a new game and not a remaster. After switching engines from Unity to Unreal, the new potential only made their appetite increase, which in turn had them straying further from their initial goal. "The more that we worked on the game, the more that we wanted to do, and the further we got from the original concepts that made System Shock so great."

Kick takes complete responsibility for letting that vision slide. "As the CEO and founder of Nightdive Studios, a company that was built on the restoration of the System Shock franchise, I let things get out of control," he says. "I can tell you that I did it for all the right reasons, that I was totally committed to making a great game, but it has become clear to me that we took the wrong path, that we turned our backs on the very people who made this possible, our Kickstarter backers."

Marvel Studios President Wants Black Panther Director To Helm Sequel

Marvel Studios President Wants Black Panther Director To Helm Sequel

Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, says he "absolutely" wants Black Panther director Ryan Coogler to return for a sequel.

Speaking with Variety to promote Black Panther among other discussions, Feige feels the comic has plenty more stories to explore on the silver screen. "We always say we work on one movie at a time," he says. "If you have any good ideas, put it in the movie you're making. If you don't, you might not be able to make another one. That said, Panther has been around for more than half a century in the comic books and there are many, many stories to tell."

A Black Panther sequel is not on the official slate of Marvel Cinematic Universe films for now. The current schedule is Avengers: Infinity Wars (May 4), Ant-Man and the Wasp (July 6), Captain Marvel (March 8, 2019); and Avengers 4, (May 3, 2019).

Two New Operators Cleanse The Perimeter In Rainbow Six Siege

Ubisoft is developing a track record for superb post-game content with recent releases. From For Honor to Tom Clancy's The Division, these games are different beasts from when they first launched, and Rainbow Six Siege is a prominent example. With a robust roster of Operators, major fixes and balancing, and a steady stream of content (with the Outbreak event quickly approaching), there's a reason why it's developed such a dedicated following. The popularity is even more apparent with the Six Invitationals esports competition and its continually impressive sales. With so much attention surrounding the game, especially with a free weekend on the horizon, Ubisoft is taking advantage of it by announcing two new Operators: Lion and Finka.

Swery And Arc System Works Announce Joint Project

Hidetaka "Swery" Suehiro announced that he will be teaming up with Arc System Works for a new game called The Missing.

Not many details were given on The Missing during Swery's announcement video, but he did say that the game "will blow your mind."

“The title, The Missing, has many meanings,” Swery says in the video. “A missing person, someone who’s lost, or even something lost… Maybe it’s your loved one… or a place you belong. Do you ever feel lost in your everyday life? The Missing is for someone like you.” He went on to say that Arc System Works, the team behind fighting games like Guilty Gear and Dragon Ball FighterZ, has allowed him to create something entirely new. "Arc System Works has been very supportive," Swery says. "They let me pursue my vision."
