Level-5 Gives Professor Layton Spinoff A New Name, Release Date

Professor Layton fans have some more info to chew on regarding the upcoming spinoff, which stars the professor's daughter, Katrielle Layton. Layton's Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires' Conspiracy (formerly called Lady Layton: The Millionaire Ariadone's Conspiracy) is coming to iOS and Android this July, with a 3DS version of the puzzle game following sometime later in the fall.

According to the press release, the protagonist isn't the only thing that's slightly different.

First Details For The Campaign And Multiplayer

Star Wars: Battlefront II is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on November 17. A small taste of what this sequel has to offer leaked in a teaser trailer last week, but the extent of just how big the game is was revealed today at this year's Star Wars Celebration. Electronic Arts has heard the demands of fans and is turning Battlefront II into a robust experience that spans both single and multiplayer.
Star Wars is at its best when it focuses on a group of unlikely heroes coming together to save the day. Luke meeting Leia, Rey finding Finn – their stories intertwine and become one, like the Force. Electronic Arts knows the heart of Star Wars is an ensemble story, but has no intention of shining the spotlight on the heroes of the Rebellion again. Star Wars Battlefront II features a single-player campaign that is told from the perspective of the Empire.

A Society Is Formed In Latest Story Trailer

The fourth Shattered Alliances trailer for Injustice 2 dropped today via the Injustice YouTube channel. Having seen Batman, Superman, and Supergirl's sides of the story in previous story trailers, this one gives fans a closer look at Gorilla Grodd's "Society", a cabal of supervillains including Scarecrow, Poison Ivy, Captain Cold, and more. You can take a look at all the monkey business for yourself down below.

As with previous story trailers, there is a lot to unpack. Eagle-eyed fans will notice that Scarecrow here is shown in a lab oat when standing alongside Grodd, giving some credibility to the fan theory that his appearance when fighting is brought on by his fear toxin. In one dramatic shot, we see Batman and Superman appearing to have a conversation over a ruined Justice League table, hinting at the possibility that the two may have to team up to battle Grodd's Society, or even something worse. 

Undead Labs Talks Map Size In State Of Decay 2

 Undead Labs Talks Map Size In State Of Decay 2

Developer Undead Labs posted a small update on the main website for State of Decay 2 that revealed some details about the size of the world in the upcoming sequel. Undead Labs says that the game will launch with three maps, each roughly the size of the world from the original game:

Hey, all, I’ve seen a lot of chatter about what everyone is hoping to see with a map. We’re finally far enough along that I can safely tell you: We are launching with THREE maps. Each roughly the size of the original. You should expect to see slightly different environments, definitely different landmarks and locations, different layouts lending themselves to different strategies, unique home sites, and even different mission types.

Why’d we do it that way? Well, primarily, because it makes the game more fun. It really feels like you’re moving from one small town to another, and creates a tremendous sense of immersion. And perhaps counter-intuitively, it makes the world feel even bigger. You know how on one map (even one three times the size as the original game’s) the longer you play, the more you start feeling deju vu with every mission? That’s less of an issue with separate maps. And see above about strategies and missions. Oh, and one more detail – the multiple map set up makes it easy to expand the world down the line, if you know what I mean.
