It seems as though the original Turok on the Nintendo 64 could be remade by a small studio called Night Dive Studios. Whether this game will see the light of day remains to be seen, but I’m sure there are quite a few of you that have fond memories of the Nintendo 64 launch title which was released in 1997.
TR: After Powerslave EX, are you going to try your hand at remaking other shooters?
Kaiser: I was originally working on remaking N64 Turok (called Turok EX) but it got put off to the side. Since now Night Dive Studios has picked up the rights to re-release it, Turok EX will resume development later this year. By the way, I’ve also done work with Night Dive by re-releasing Strife, which was another reverse-engineering project that me and a friend worked on back in 2010.

It would appear as though the upcoming LEGO Dimensions will be getting seven new packs which were discovered via the Walmart website. The latest Toys to Life series will be getting packs based on The Simpsons and well as Valve’s critically acclaimed Portal series. No doubt this will all be confirmed by the LEGO Group at a later date, but for now it looks as though it’s coming.

We’ve been granted the first images of Disney Infinity 3.0 Star Wars, thanks to a German retailer. Yes, the images look completely legitimate and the site that originally posted the leak took down the post by request of Disney. Disney Infinity 3.0 Star Wars is scheduled to be released on August 20th on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and the Wii U. If you are interested in the Wii U version of the game the starter pack will set you back €59.99.
Again, this won’t come as surprise to many of you but it seems as though Ubisoft is busy developing Watch Dogs 2. The news was spotted on the LinkedIn profile of Julien Risse, who works at Ubisoft’s Paris studio. The page mentions the follow-up to the 2014 game, which as I’m sure you remember, gathered mixed reviews. Who knows, we may hear something about the game at E3 in June.
Thanks Nintendo Impact Gaming.
