Dark Horse Comics has announced a new comic based on Nintendo's fighting game ARMS being written by Ian Flynn, most famously known for Archie Comics' Sonic the Hedgehog.

The ARMS comic is debuting as part of a double-issue with a new Legend of Korra comic being given away during Free Comic Book Day, a day where comic book stores and publishers give away certain issues of comics for free to drive business into stores. The ARMS half of the book is being written by Ian Flynn with art from Joe Ng, who is best known for the Overwatch comic Binary.

Dark Horse describes the ARMS comic as follows: "In a story based on Nintendo's exclusive fighting game ARMS, a young fighter trains tirelessly to reach the top in the ARMS League Grand Prix—but first, he must defeat 599 other contenders!"

Development Has Begun On The Next Legend of Zelda

Development Has Begun On The Next Legend of Zelda

Eiji Aonuma and his team have started development on the next Zelda game, according to a note in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Master Works, an official artbook dedicated to the game of the same name.

There aren't many details aside from Aonuma's note, but it's certainly not surprising. Work on Zelda tends to be very cyclical, with Breath of the Wild starting almost immediately after Skyward Sword finished up in 2011. That said, it will likely be a long time until anything tangible is created, as Aonuma was still rethinking Breath of the Wild's core fundamentals by the January 2013 Nintendo Direct.

In the ten months since Breath of the Wild's release, Aonuma has stated that open world Zelda is likely here to stay, but also that the handheld Zelda team behind games like A Link Between Worlds remains separate and could stay 2D even on the Switch.

For Honor Groping Execution Accidentally Added To Game Has Been Replaced

Last month, Ubisoft added a new execution for the Valkyrie hero and has had a headache and a half removing and replacing it.

The execution, which you can see in the video below, involved the female Valkyrie plunging her spear into the enemy's gut, who then falls forward. The enemy's hands land on the Valkyrie's breasts, who, despite having just had a spear run through them, begins pantomiming apology motions. The Valkyrie then kicks them in the crotch and backhands them with the shield.

Bandai Namco Officially Reveals What Wishes The Dragon Balls Grant In FighterZ

Ever since we revealed in our recent cover story that Dragon Ball FighterZ would let players collect the Dragon Balls midmatch to be granted a wish, fans have been speculating about what they might be able to wish for. After a few leaks and scant details emerged in the months sense, Bandai Namco has officially revealed how the magical spheres affect the match.

According to a recent tweet from the company, after seven combos with a specific hit count (10 hits for the one-star ball, 30 hits for the three-star ball, etc.) are performed during the match, Shenron will appear to grant one player one of four wishes. The next player to land a combo (the tweet does not mention specifics, though an image in the tweet suggests it's no more than seven hits, may need to end with a heavy attack, and may require a full seven bars of Ki meter to activate) will get the wish.

That player can then choose to have their current character's health bar fully restored, revive one of their allies with half health, gain an additional Sparking Burst charge, or become immortal, restoring half their health and gaining auto-restoration for their energy gauge.

The Escapists 2, Team 17's prison break simulator, is coming to the Switch on January 11.

The game is a top-down sprite-based playground for players to figure their way out of prison with disguises, ropes, and hopefully at least one Racquelle Welch poster. The Switch version also allows local co-op using the system's two joycons.

You can check out the Switch announcement trailer below to get a feel for the game and check out our review of the PlayStation 4 version here. The Escapists 2 was originally released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in August.

Destiny 2's First Dawning Event Is Now Live

Destiny 2's Dawning Event, which was announced several weeks ago and detailed a few days ago, is now live.

This year, the event runs from today until January 9 and includes snowballs you can throw at friends in the Tower and Farm, and at enemies during Strikes to deal damage. Mayhem (which reduces the cooldowns of all abilities) is back in the crucible for the first time in Destiny 2's multiplayer. Participating in these events will earn you Dawning Engrams, which you can use to gain new armor, ships, and more. The soccer ball in the Tower has been replaced by a hockey puck, too.
