Blast ‘Em Bunnies Launches On PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo 3DS And PlayStation Vita On 8 To 11 March 2016

Independent developer Nnooo are excited to announce the release dates for their endless shooter Blast ‘Em Bunnies. The game is scheduled to launch on the following dates and platforms:

March 8 – PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in the Americas
March 9 – PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in Europe, UK, Australia and New Zealand
March 10 – Nintendo 3DS in the Americas, Europe, UK, Australia and New Zealand
March 11 – Xbox One in the Americas, Europe, UK, Australia and New Zealand

Xbox One users can also pre-order Blast ‘Em Bunnies or the Super Mega Bundle containing the game, 5 arena packs, 5 skin packs and 3 multiplier bonuses from February 10.

Blast ‘Em Bunnies pits you the player as a cute, cartoon bunny called Bang Bang who must defend your rabbit burrow, against an onslaught of evil bunnies. These bunnies have captured your offspring and one of them, the evil Throatslitter, is holding them hostage. Just how long can you and your little ‘uns survive? Grab your carrot rifle, watermelon machine gun, turnip mortar or runner bean laser and take them down! Shoot coins to collect them and spend them on new weapons, upgrades and ammo including sticky raspberries, heat seeking chilli seeds, shredding leek lasers or bouncing, splitting, exploding pumpkin bombs!

In its latest console release Nnooo have crafted a fun, frenetic first person shooter with a dark side. Simply pick up your controller and get blasting bunnies! Players on motion-capable devices (PS4, PSVita and Nintendo 3DS) can also choose to aim using motion controls as well as traditional controls.

The game features 4 different weapons to purchase and upgrade and 16 different bullet types to combine with your chosen weapon for maximum tactical effect. By shooting coins the player can save up to purchase each weapon, upgrade, ammo or health upgrade to allow them to survive longer against the ferocious evil bunnies! Should you save up for the Runner Bean Laser or go straight for new Heat Seeking Parsnip ammo? Tough decisions abound!

With over 50 medals to be unlocked and missions which refresh either on completion or daily the player will always be faced with a challenge. Those looking for harder difficulties and modes can take on Survival mode in Easy, Normal, Hard and Very Hard (where you need to survive for as long as you can) or try out Slaughter mode in Normal, Super or Ultra difficulties (where you must survive for 2 minutes with weaker weapons and health depending on difficulty).

Each battle takes place in an arena with bunnies spawning to bring you down. Runners, Walkers, Burrowers, Grenadiers, Blockers and Bosses all conspire to defeat you. The Throatslitter macabrely tries to dispatch your young and the Golden Bunny evades your bullets lest you unleash Frenzy Mode!! Players can also customise their experience with purchasable add-on content from each platform’s online store. There are 5 new arena and matching skin packs which cover Ninjas, Zombies, Urban Army, Clowns and Luchadors. Add-on content can be purchased individually or in bundles with bundles giving a deeper discount on pricing.

Players on PlayStation platforms can purchase the game and add-on content as part of Cross-Buy and receive both the PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 4 versions for one combined price.

Founder and Creative Director of Nnooo, Nic Watt says:

“As a development team of 2 and a company of 3 we have poured our heart and souls into making this game a highly polished, frenetic experience on all of the platforms we are releasing on.

Nintendo Continuing Their “Development And Planning Efforts For NX In Preparation For Launch”

Tatsumi Kimishima, the president of Nintendo, has assured investors that they are hard at work continuing their “development and planning efforts for NX in preparation for launch.” Kimishima obviously wouldn’t give much away, but we do know that the platform will be announced sometime this year with all signs pointing towards E3 in June.

“The previous and current fiscal years have been a period of preparation to launch a number of new endeavors, such as NX development, development for smart devices and business using our character IP, in addition to driving our Wii U and Nintendo 3DS businesses.”

“At the same time, it has been our priority to take a close look at areas of our existing business where the revenue and expenses had become unbalanced, and to make sure that we corrected this balance. As I have said before, we will be launching many of our new business activities as we move from this fiscal year into the next.”

“When you start any new business, it is important to make the public aware of what you will be doing. In the next fiscal year, we will have to make preparations and investments to achieve these goals, and that comes with certain costs.”

“The question was to pick one area with which we will be able to achieve Nintendo-like profits, but I would like to suggest two areas. One area is our NX business, and another is our business for smart devices. I believe that keeping these two endeavors on track will be key to achieving Nintendo-like profits. I don’t have any further details to share about the next fiscal year at this time, but we will explain about our plan and when we will aim to achieve Nintendo-like profits at a future date.”

Rumour: More Troubling Information Comes To Light Regarding Star Fox Zero Development

You may have heard last week that a rumour was doing the rounds stating that development for Star Fox Zero isn’t going as well as Nintendo had hoped. This makes sense as the game was delayed from 2015 and pushed back till April this year. But the troubles with the game are apparently worse than previously thought and it seems to revolve around the controls and the two screen factor with the TV and Wii U GamePad. More information was brought to light regarding this from investigative journalist Liam Robertson who says that he has heard similar rumblings. Here’s what he had to say.

Another Shameless Pokemon Clone Called ‘Pocket Master’ Was Recently Released

One of the latest Pokemon clones to see release is called Pocket Master, which hit iOS and Android devices on January 26. Described as a mobile game in which “cute pokemons debut as human,” the app has been trying to bank on Pokemon’s success via in-app purchases in the form of “Pokemon Stones,” which can cost users up to $100 for a single bundle of the virtual items.


Outside The Realm Is Coming To The Wii U eShop And It Looks Awful

Where’s quality control when you need it? Another gem from TreeFall Studios is making its way to the Wii U this Thursday, and it looks just as bad–if not worse than the rest. Outside The Realm is a puzzling “game” that tasks players with getting an astronaut back to his ship using a simple mix of touch-based and traditional controls. By tapping the GamePad, the astronaut moves forward. Pressing up or down on the D-pad will move him in that direction. You can see the utterly innovative title in the trailer below. If you’re interested at all, or happen to have change left over from a real eShop purchase, you can pick up the game within it’s launch window for $0.49. Otherwise, its $1.99.



GameTrailers Is Shutting Down

GameTrailers is closing its doors after 13 years of providing gamers with content and news coverage in a way that no other website has done before. The staff was informed of the news just a few hours before it was made public on NeoGAF and Twitter.

No word was given why the site is shutting down. It is also unknown what the fate of its staff will be. We wish the staff at GameTrailers all the best and good luck to them. Feel free to tell us your memories of GameTrailers over the years in the comments.
