Capcom Looking To Reveal Resident Evil 7 At E3?

 Sankei financial newspaper is reporting that there’s a possibility that Capcom may reveal the next entry to the Resident Evil franchise at E3 in June. Whether it’s insider information, or just a rumour that the paper has picked up on, remains to be seen. However, it seems reasonably likely that we will see some sort of Resident Evil title at E3 as Resident Evil 6 launched back in 2012.

And then there’s the matter of E3. Set for June, the publisher plans to show off a major game of some sort for the PS4. Fans are getting increasingly hyped up for the event, as they take it to mean that a new Resident Evil game is on the horizon.

Here’s A Look At Yoshitaka Amano’s Gorgeous Artwork For Child Of Light (Video)

Ubisoft has uploaded a new behind-the-scenes artwork video for the upcoming and beautiful game, Child of Light. Join world-renowned character designer and illustrator Yoshitaka Amano on a journey through his spectacular artistry as he paints Princess Aurora in the mystical kingdom of Lemuria. Amano said that he wanted to express the challenges a child may face when they are born into the world and created darker tones around Aurora in stark contrast with her striking red hair.

A copy of Amano’s gorgeous artwork can be purchased with the Deluxe Edition of the game, which features an exclusive Igniculus key ring and a 24 page art book. Child of Light is due for release on April 30 for Wii U, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC.

Batman Arkham Knight Isn’t Coming To Wii U As It Can “Only Be Done On Next-Gen”

Dax Ginn, marketing game manager for Rocksteady, has told NowGamer that the team decided to make Batman Arkham Knight only available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One because the game wouldn’t function as well on Wii U, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 Ginn cites the Batmobile as one of the reasons and says that “it’s highly technical – all of those things can only be done on next-gen,”

“It was the one thing we hadn’t done,” Ginn explained. “Once we decided we were going to commit to the Batmobile, all these other technical decisions were made for us.”

“We knew that we had to do it right – the imagination of the experience of driving the Batmobile that people have is that it’s fast, that it’s destructive, it’s kind of a tank in Gotham City, but it’s also highly technical – all of those things can only be done on next-gen,” said Ginn.

“Not in the way that people imagine it. It’s the power fantasy of driving this legendary vehicle; if it can only do a top speed of 25 mph that’s not the power fantasy and that’s why we couldn’t have done that previously,”

“We have to make our technology choices specifically with reference to the gameplay objectives that we want, so we choose the platforms that are going to give us that,” said Ginn.

Brutal, Bloody Game ‘Aztez’ Coming To Wii U

Team Colorblind has announced that its debut game, Aztez, will be released on Wii U this year. Described as a “brutal, bloody, expressive, difficult, and replayable action game,” Aztez has players expand and maintain the Aztec empire through turn-based strategy while managing violent outbreaks via real-time beat ‘em up sequences. The title is also in development for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita and Xbox One.

“We’re happy to announce that Aztez is officially coming to PS4, Vita, Xbox One, and Wii U,” the developer wrote on its website.

“Our first release will still be on Steam (PC/Mac/Linux), with consoles releases as soon as possible afterwards. If we could, we’d love to launch on everything at once, but really there are just the two of us and launching on a console is a ton of work. We’ll have more timeframe details as we get closer to release!”

Festival Of Magic Kickstarter Has Relaunched Under New Name

Norwegian developer SnowCastle Games has relaunched the Kickstarter for Festival of Magic under a new name. The upcoming fantasy, turn-based RPG has been renamed to Earthlock: Festival of Magic, and is looking to raise $150,000 for the game’s first volume. At the time of writing, SnowCastle Games has acquired almost a third of their target, sitting at just over $40,000 with 32 days to go.

Last year, SnowCastle Games killed the Kickstarter appeal due to new console releases and a holiday rush, but aimed to relaunch in February. Although a little later than planned, the new campaign has launched with a smaller funding goal and an alpha demo for potential backers.

Earthlock: Festival of Magic will follow the audacious scavenger Amon through a rich, non-linear story in the heart of Umbra.  The game will also feature puzzles and elements of harvesting materials in order to craft new objects. Earthlock: Festival of Magic is aiming for a 2015 release on Wii U, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Mac and Linux. You can learn more about the game on the developer’s Kickstarter page, here.
