MouseCraft from indie developer Crunching Koalas will be available in the third quarter of this year on the Nintendo eShop for Wii U. The puzzle game tasks players with helping mice in their relentless quest for cheese by stacking tetrominos, which can be used to create a safe path for the mice. It also challenges players to defeat obstacles, overcome gaps and gather collectibles by using different types of blocks.
Little Devil Inside has reached its first stretch goal on Kickstarter, which means that the upcoming 3D RPG is officially coming to Wii U. Developed by Neostream, Little Devil Inside throws players into a surreal setting with humans, creatures and monsters to interact with. It tells stories about people with ‘unusual’ jobs such as hunting monsters and what happens in their everyday life doing so.
We’ve finally got the NPD figures through for April 2015. The Xbox One was the best-selling video game platform, but we have yet to find out how Nintendo fared with the New Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. The only Nintendo title in the top ten all-formats chart is the excellent Super Smash Bros for the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. Hopefully we should get a press release through from Nintendo of America detailing sales shortly.

Looks like someone has let the cat out of the bag early at Ubisoft as concept trailers for their new IP which is being dubbed Hero have found their way online. We heard earlier today that Ubisoft is developing a new IP which they hope to release before March 2016. Hero could well be the one that was mentioned. Ubisoft is apparently scrambling to remove the videos and the image. Guess it was a project that was due to be officially announced at E3 next month.

Ubisoft is no longer creating titles for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and is instead focussing its efforts on developing for the current generation of consoles. We’ve already heard that Assassin’s Creed Syndicate will only be available on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. However, the company says it will make an exception for the Just Dance series which has sold incredibly well on Nintendo platforms.
Ubisoft has confirmed today that they are hard at work developing an unannounced AAA game for a number of platforms which is due to be released by March 2016. The company wouldn’t give any clues regarding what the mystery title is, but we can assume it will be showcased at next month’s E3 event in Los Angeles. The company also revealed that they are now only developing for current generation consoles for their major titles, but Just Dance will come to last generation platforms. What would you like to see Ubisoft working on?
Today, Ubisoft announced that Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, the newest instalment in the blockbuster Assassin’s Creed franchise, will be available worldwide on October 23 for PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft. The Windows PC version will be available this autumn.
Developed by Ubisoft Quebec in collaboration with eight other Ubisoft studios, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is an epic single player experience set in London during the height of the Industrial Revolution, an incredible age of invention that transforms the lives of millions. During this time, the gap between the poor and the rich expands exponentially, making workers’ lives little more than legalised slavery. The lower classes fight for survival by forming a new kind of family – gangs – and adapting to life in the criminal underworld. Players will embody both Jacob Frye and Evie Frye, twin Assassins raised to follow the Creed. Jacob, a determined, hot-headed and rebellious leader of an underground gang, is vastly different than his sister Evie, a master of stealth and control. Together, Jacob and Evie team up to challenge rivals, plutocrats and Templars alike to free the masses from poverty and corruption, and, ultimately, wrestle back control of London.
In Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, players explore the largest, most modern open-world city ever created in an Assassin’s Creed game. The fighting is more brutal than ever, as players combat rival gangs and grow their sphere of influence throughout London using new weapons, including brass knuckles, a kukri knife, a revolver and the Assassin’s gauntlet. Assassin’s Creed Syndicate also includes innovative navigation and transportation throughout the open world, including a rope launcher for scaling tall Victorian buildings, zip-lining from rooftop to rooftop or performing aerial assassinations, and horse-drawn carriages and high-speed trains for free-running, tracking down enemies or escaping after daring raids.
“The ability to lead an underground gang, commandeer any vehicle on hand and use modern tools to take on an expansive and fast-paced Victorian London sets this game apart,” said Marc-Alexis Côté, Creative Director at Ubisoft. “Assassin’s Creed Syndicate has been in development for more than two years and this new modern take on the living open world will please Assassin’s Creed fans and newcomers alike.”
