Shortly before the Tekken 7 finals at Evo 2018, Bandai Namco released trailers announcing returning Soul vets Astaroth and Seong Mi-na.

The golem Astaroth made his debut in the original Soulcalibur, to which Soulcalibur VI time-travels/reboots itself to, and has appeared in the second, third, and fourth games after. Seong Mi-na predates him by one game, having appeared in Soul Blade, known in the arcades as Soul Edge.

Soulcalibur VI arrives on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 19. The game also features a guest appearance from the White Wolf himself, Geralt of Rivia. You can see us taking him for a spin at E3 right here.

The ignominious history of Mega Man voice acting is hard to forget. With Mega Man X Collection releasing recently, it's not hard to remember there was a time where Mega Man voice acting was at best bad. Even closer to Mega Man 11 is the eighth Mega Man mainline title, which kept a line flub in the final dialogue and had Dr. Light pronounce the villain name as "Dr. Wawee."

Capcom is getting ahead of those concerns by showing off voice clips of Mega Man 11's voice actors on the game's website. There's no Dr. Wawee to be found here, as Dr. Light speaks in a way that in no way indicates he's hunting wascally wabbits. It also seems like Torchman is some kind of fire...ninja...guy, which is also cool.

Mega Man 11 releases on October 2 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC.

Ultimate Team & Kick Off Changes Try To Make FIFA 19 More Inviting

Ultimate Team & Kick Off Changes Try To Make FIFA 19 More Inviting

Developers are always trying to get more people to play, whether it's enticing new customers or giving new incentives for the current ones not to leave, and FIFA 19 is making some changes and adding new features to its Kick Off and FIFA Ultimate Team modes in pursuit of this goal.

Kick Off is an exhibition game mode I haven't touched in I don't know how long, but in FIFA 19 it's a standout multiplayer mode (sadly only local offline) due to the inclusion of House Rules. These are exhibition matches that take liberties with the rules of the game to create situations you wouldn't normally get to experience.

I played these, and all of them were a lot of fun, but particularly No Rules, which as you can imagine becomes a free-for-all. Then again, if your opponent thinks they're going to run around just breaking your players' legs, you can make them pay by anticipating contact and dodging tackles, leaving them in the grass.

Indie Action Game Lost Soul Aside Gets A Flashy New Trailer

Indie Action Game Lost Soul Aside Gets A Flashy New Trailer

Lost Soul Aside is an action game we've been keeping our eye on. The game made a big splash on the PSX show floor last year, where the character action title attracted huge lines as part of Sony's China Hero Project initiative to bring promising games from China to the world stage. The one-man developer Yang Bing caught Sony's attention, which supplied resources in exchange for timed exclusivity.

At the recent ChinaJoy, a digital entertainment expo in and about China, Sony showed off some footage from China Hero Project games. This included a new trailer for Lost Soul Aside, which has clearly improved with the extra development resources since PSX.

The newest trailer features a lot more than was available at the PSX demo. While the original target date was 2018, the current trailer describes it as a "work in progress," so it's unlikely to make it this year.
