Life Is Strange 2 Is An Impressive Big Brother Simulator

Yesterday, the world got its first look at the new setting and characters of Life is Strange 2. While that initial trailer doesn’t look like too much of departure from what we’ve come to expect from the series, I was able to gleam several new details about the game during a theater presentation for the sequel, which does make some interesting alterations to the formula.

The most significant change Life is Strange 2 makes over its predecessor is that rather than see the outcomes of your decisions manifest in the people in and around Arcadia Bay (the setting of the first Life is Strange), you’ll be taking a road trip. Life is Strange 2 follows Shawn and Daniel Diaz, two brothers who’ve had to run away from home after a mysterious event occurs in their hometown of Seattle, Washington. Taking place three years after the events of the original Life is Strange, the Diaz brothers’ journey has them traveling from Seattle to Mexico, which means we’ll be seeing quite a bit of the American West Coast in Life is Strange 2.

Since many characters may not stick around as you make your way to Mexico, a huge part of the sequel will be the relationship between Shawn and Daniel, which acts as the lightning rod for decision-making this time around. As his older brother, Shawn is shaping what kind of person Daniel will become.

Valkyria Chronicles 4 Shows Off Its New Features To Aid You In Battle

The wait for Valkyria Chronicles 4 is not too long now, but the larger wait for a new console Valkyria title has lasted a decade. It stands to reason that in those ten years, war might have changed a little, and this new trailer is eager to show you exactly how.

The New Features trailer shows how to command your army and request backup from offshore cannons to bombard your enemy with explosions or inspire dying soldiers to keep it together for just a bit longer.

As the trailer indicates, there's a few new commands and wrinkles to the game this entry to make battles a bit more varied and to bail you out when the unexpected happens. Valkyria Chronicles 4 releases on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC on September 25.

A Hat In Time DLC And Co-Op Announced, Switch Version Coming Soon

Gears for Breakfast has released a new video about their 3D platformer A Hat in Time, which is filled to the brim with news, including for new DLC, new modes, and a Nintendo Switch version.

The trailer, which you can see below, announces a brand new DLC expansion for the game titled Seal the Deal. There's also new time rifts introduced to the game, and a "Nostalgia Badge," which filters the game to look like a N64 platformer. If you're a fan of visual filters, you will enjoy the new ones added to the game's photo mode.

As mentioned before, the trailer also mentions a new split-screen co-op mode, as well, and finally announces the Switch version. A Switch port has been denied multiple times since the game's release last year by the developers, but it appears they have finally acquiesced to Switch fans hoping for a release. It is only listed as the "near future," however.

Dead Or Alive 6 Adds Hitomi And Leifang, Along With A New Pirate Ship Stage

KOEI Tecmo and Team Ninja have released a new gameplay video of Dead or Alive 6, showing Hitomi and Leifang together on a pirate ship complete with a Kraken hiding beneath the surface.

The new trailer shows both characters, who were treasure hunters in the previous Dead or Alive game, likely continuing their newfound occupation in a gold-filled ship. One of the stage hazards appears to be a Kraken tentacle reaching out and slamming your opponent into the bowels of the ship.

Hitomi was introduced in Dead or Alive 3 in 2001, while Leifang has been a mainstay of the series since the very first game in 1996. The two returning characters follow up an already-introduced roster that includes Kasumi, Ryu, Jann Lee, and newcomer Diego.
