Guilty Gear Xrd SIGN Announced For PS3 & PS4

Arc System Works and Red have revealed that they have been working on an all-new Guilty Gear game called Guilty Gear Xrd SIGN, and it will be coming to both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 in North America later this year.

This game is being looked at as a back-to-basics for the series, as the last installment didn’t do too well and this game is looking to cut off all excess fat. The most notable aspect of the game is that it is being designed as a 2D fighting game rather than 3D and will feature Cel Shaded graphics.

The game will ship with 15 playable characters, but other than that there is little else known about the game. I’m sure it will make an appearance at E3 and much more information will come to light.

My Judgment:

I prefer the 2D-style fighting games, so it’s cool to hear that Guilty Gear is going back to that. Who knows whether or not it will be any good, but you gotta give developers credit when they are actively trying to create something that improves upon what has come before.

News Judgment… PVZ: Garden Warfare Hitting PlayStation This August

Everyone was secretly hoping that it was coming, but not developer PopCap has revealed that their massively popular third-person shooter, Plants Vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, will be making its way to both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 on August 19th.

As an added bonus, both the PS3 and PS4 versions of the game will come with the Garden Variety and Zomboss Down expansions from the get-go. The game will run at 1080p and 60 FPS on PS4 (of course).

PopCap also revealed a trailer announcing that the game is coming to both PS3 and PS4, and you can watch that right below here. 

My Judgment:

The Plants Vs. Zombies games are pretty much loved by everyone, so the fact that it can now reach in even bigger group of people is a great thing. Who the hell doesn’t love plants and zombies battling to the death? No one, that’s who!

Ubisoft Aiming To Sell Over 6 Million Copies Of ‘Watch Dogs’

Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot is very confident that Watch Dogs is going to sell over 6 million copies. Well, 6.3 million, to be exact.

Guillemot claims that he can set the high goal due to the massive success of the Assassin’s Creed franchise. It also doesn’t hurt that the game has had an incredibly great ad campaign, and just about every new tidbit of information has been relished by just about everyone.

Watch Dogs is being developed by Ubisoft for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC and will be released on May 27th. A Wii U version is also being developed and is set to be released at the end of the year.

Western Trailer Debut For Kadokawa Games’ ‘Natural Doctrine’

Another JRPG is making its way to North America thanks to NIS America, and now Natural Doctrine has received its first western trailer.

The game does look very promising, as it reminds be a lot of old-school RPGs that I can’t get enough of. The game is being developed for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita, though from the trailer it seems more like an early PS3 game.

Check out the Natural Doctrine debut western trailer below. 

Naughty Dog Developing “Two Brand New Experiences”

Naughty Dog are pretty much the best developers around right now, bringing us both the Uncharted series and the fantastic The Last of Us. We know that both a remaster of The Last of Us and new entry in the Uncharted series are in development, but what we didn’t know is that they are working on two other things that are completely unrelated to those games.

Creative director Neil Druckmann spoke with EDGE and said the following about current projects:

“We’re working on this re-release, but at the same time we’re working on two other brand-new experiences.”

What these brand new experiences are is anyone’s guess, but you can bet that Naughty Dog is going to be having all eyes on them at this year’s E3.

New Video Game Releases (May 12th – 18th, 2014)
