Netflix Releasing A Live-Action One Piece Series, Apparently

about X hours ago from

The streaming giant, Netflix, is no stranger to anime. It's also no stranger to live-action anime adaptations either. Just last year, the California-based company released a live-action version of Tite Kubo's Bleach. Two years ago, Hiromu Arakawa's Fullmetal Alchemist received the same treatment. And in August 2017, the company unleashed Ryuk with a live-action adaptation of Tsugumi Ohba's Death Note. It seems Eiichiro Oda's One Piece is next in line to join Netflix's live-action ranks.

According to a Netflix listing, One Piece is making its way to the platform. There's no information about the series though. No casting announcements. No release date. There isn't even a title card for the series. There's only a description that sounds like a cut-and-paste of One Piece's synopsis:

"Monkey D. Luffy sets sail with his trusty crew to find the One Piece treasure and become the ultimate Pirate King! Based on the manga by Eiichiro Oda."

Devil May Cry 5: How To Get The Secret Ending In Short Time

In Devil May Cry 5, you'll need to up your skills in combat to see some of the game's most exciting and satisfying moments. Just like in previous games in the series, Capcom's action game features some hidden secrets to uncover, and they'll require players to put their skills to the test in order to unlock them. Though in a , which feature post-credits easter eggs at game's end, Devil May Cry 5's secret ending can be seen during the opening mission of the game.

In the Prologue, you'll play as Nero--sans his iconic Devil Bringer. As it's revealed in the first act of the game, his demonic arm was torn off by a mysterious figure, and he's been hellbent on exacting revenge ever since. In this state, the scrappy protagonist is as well-equipped compared to his outing in DMC4, which makes his first major encounter with the all-powerful Urizen a major battle to overcome. This first boss fight is intended to show how powerful this big bad is, and that Nero will need more power to stand a chance. Having said that, it's actually possible to defeat Urizen in this battle--ending the threat before it even begins to have a major impact.

The Simpsons executive team has decided to pull an episode that featured deceased pop star Michael Jackson as a guest voice, following renewed allegations of abuse. Creator Matt Groening, executive producer James L. Brooks, and showrunner Al Jean said they reached the decision together after viewing the HBO documentary Leaving Neverland.

"It feels clearly the only choice to make," Brooks told The Wall Street Journal. "The guys I work with--where we spend our lives arguing over jokes--were of one mind on this."

Games tech company Improbable has announced it is venturing into games development with two newly created studios in London and Edmonton, the latter of which is being headed up by former BioWare veteran Aaryn Flynn. In a press release, the company says the studios are working on "online multiplayer games" powered by its SpatialOS platform.

Flynn worked at BioWare for 11 years and served as the company's general manager from 2015-2017. During his tenure there, he oversaw the development of the Mass Effect and Dragon Age franchises, as well as Star Wars: The Old Republic. He joined Improbable as the general manager of its North American games business in September 2018.

"I was interested in making a game using SpatialOS from the very first time I spoke to Improbable," Flynn said. "Building tools and content has been a great way for our Edmonton team to master SpatialOS, but a full game was always an opportunity myself and others had in mind as the Edmonton studio took shape. Now, after a lot of great hires and great progress, we're going to focus on creating that game using Unreal Engine 4 and building on SpatialOS' next-generation online games platform."

Where Is Xur? Destiny 2 Location And Exotic Weapons And Armor Guide (March 8-12)

Where Is Xur? Destiny 2 Location And Exotic Weapons And Armor Guide (March 8-12)

It's the first weekend of Joker's Wild, Destiny 2's second Annual Pass content expansion. That means everyone's favorite snake-faced salesman, Xur, is back in the solar system with a host of Exotic weapons and armor. But unlike Xur's visits for the first five seasons of Destiny 2, this weekend is different: it's the first time that Xur has a chance of bringing along Exotics from the Forsaken expansion to sell.

Of course, now that Forsaken Exotics are in the rotation, that doesn't mean that Xur is guaranteed to actually bring you something you might want. They're just in the randomly chosen pool of his wares. Luckily, this week is an embarrassment of riches for players who've been hoping to snag some Year Two Exotics, because Xur has three of them.

Xur's arrival this week takes him to the Tower, where you'll find him in the Hangar. At the bottom of the stairs as you enter the area, turn left and walk to the back to where you'll find a staircase heading upward to the left toward a catwalk. Xur is about halfway up, enjoying the view.
