Into the Spider-Verse animated flick gets its first trailer

Into the Spider-Verse, the animated adaptation of the 2014 Marvel Comics “Spider-Verse” storyline by the same name, launched its first trailer today.

Centered on Miles Morales, the trailer promises to deliver more than one individual wearing Spider-Man’s mask. The 2014 storyline involved Morales (as Ultimate Spider-Man), Spider-Girl (Mayday Parker) Spider-Gwen (the informal name of the Spider-Woman role Gwen Stacy takes), Spider-Woman (Jessica Drew, the oldest of the characters other than Peter Parker), and more.

Tabletop giant Fantasy Flight’s next project is a digital card game

Fantasy Flight Interactive, the newest digital studio within Asmodee North America, has just announced its first game. Called The Lord of the Rings Living Card Game, it’s a single-player and cooperative multiplayer card game based on the successful Lord of the Rings: The Card Game, released in 2011.

Digital card games like Hearthstone or The Elder Scrolls: Legends all rely on random packs. Living card games, such as the classic Netrunner and Lord of the Rings: The Card Game, don’t. Instead, LCGs use a sort of expansion model, with known sets of cards available to be purchased for a fixed price. The Lord of the Rings Living Card Game will bring that model to PC for the first time.

Mega Man coming to Monster Hunter: World

Capcom just dropped a new trailer for Monster Hunter: World at the opening ceremony at PlayStation Experience 2017, showing off the breadth of the world, the characters you’ll interact with and action-packed battles with beasts like Nergigante. It also included an unexpected cameo: Mega Man.

Apparently the helpful palico buddies of Monster Hunter: World will be able to dress up like Mega Man, in chunky, 8-bit, cel-shaded style. Mega Man palicoes will be able to chug energy tanks and eat sausages, and players will be able to take part in monster hunts while also listening to classic Mega Man chiptunes.

Stardew Valley is still coming to PS Vita

The developers of farming role-playing game Stardew Valley are still plugging away at bringing the game to PlayStation Vita, with a portable port expected to hit sometime in 2018.

Developer ConcernedApe said earlier this year that it was investigating a Vita version of Stardew Valley, but publisher Chucklefish finally confirmed it today. The good news is that the Vita version will be cross-buy compatible with the PlayStation 4 version, meaning it won’t require a second purchase. The bad news is that the Vita port won’t include the multiplayer update that’s coming to Stardew Valley.

Bungie promises to fix Destiny 2 achievement and other issues

Bungie promises to fix Destiny 2 achievement and other issues

Destiny 2’s first expansion, Curse of Osiris, launched this week to a lukewarm reception, not least because it locks players out of content they could previously access if they don’t buy the add-on. Bungie is addressing at least one of the major complaints about that locked content: a specific achievement in vanilla Destiny 2.

A particular endgame feat — completing a Prestige raid or Prestige Nightfall strike — unlocks a PlayStation Network trophy or Xbox Live achievement, depending on which console you’re playing on. However, due to the power level increases for Prestige activities in Curse of Osiris, players who don’t own the expansion are now locked out of those exercises. In other words, the release of paid downloadable content is preventing people from being able to earn a trophy/achievement in the main game (and unlock its platinum trophy on PS4).

Kojima fans try to make sense of Death Stranding’s latest trailer

Kojima fans try to make sense of Death Stranding’s latest trailer

Part of the fun of Death Stranding is how inscrutable it is. By that measure, its new trailer, a Game Awards 2017-exclusive cinematic featuring Norman Reedus, a baby, some alien creatures and a bunch of other nonsensicalities, was the most fun one yet.

Inexplicable as the footage seemed, fans of director Hideo Kojima’s previous work are dedicated to sussing out as much as they can from it. From figuring out who that masked villain was to spotting a possible Kojima cameo, these are the latest Death Stranding theories and clues dug up from last night’s trailer.
