We heard rumours a few months back that Resident Evil: Revelations 2 is in development when a Russian site began listing the title for a number of platforms. Things have taken a step further today as the box-art for the game was hosted on xbox.com. The game was listed for PlayStation 4, Xbox, One, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. Here’s some rumoured information about the story.
There are three returning characters. Two female and one male. Two haven’t been seen in over a decade and one has never had an “in-game” appearance. Guess away. That’s more than enough.”
“Regarding the one who doesn’t appear in-game, I should be a little more specific(because I’m sure someone will call me a liar for being too general). They are mentioned in games but are a background character with no “active” appearance yet. It’s not someone from the movies/comics.”
Although Rayman Origins wasn’t entirely well received on the Nintendo 3DS, it seems as though Ubisoft might be bringing more Rayman titles to the handheld. Amazon Germany have recently listed a Rayman Compilation for the Nintendo 3DS. It’s a very early listing, and there’s no box-art to back it up, but I’m sure Nintendo 3DS owners wouldn’t grumble at a re-release of previous Rayman games.
The Japanese eShop listing for the recently released Hyrule Warriors apparently says that additional characters, weapons and scenario are planned to be distributed in the near future. We’ve still got a while for the game to release over here as it’s not due until September.
Rumor: “Additional characters, weapons and scenario are planned to be distributed!” says eShop page of HW.
The very same person that previously predicted Devil’s Third on Wii U, and Pokémon ORAS claims that he has learned that Nintendo is working on another remastered title. Nico says that it’s the perfect game to fill the gap in Nintendo’s release schedule for 2015. He also claims Nintendo will have one game per month during 2015.
You’re gonna love it, but it’s a Remaster. It’s perfect to fill gaps inthe line-up. Really, Big N [Nintendo] will have one game per month in 2015.
UK hackers, Chadderz and his brother Mr Bean, have discovered four unused cup icons in Mario Kart 8. At this point in time its undetermined whether they were placed there as forthcoming downloadable content, or they were simply scrapped by the development team. Still, it’s certainly an interesting find for Mario Kart 8 fans.
A reader of My Nintendo News has snapped a pre-order box shot of Super Smash Bros Wii U in one of the HMV stores in London. The accompanying label claims that Super Smash Bros for the Wii U will be arriving in stores on November 28th. Of course, this could simply be a placeholder, but as Nintendo has yet to officially confirm anything other than winter, this is one of the closest things we’ve got to a release date for the game.
Thanks, Lorn and Willz
Matt Ryan, who is in charge of Communications, Marketing and Partnerships at Nintendo of Canada, has mentioned in the recent video that Rayman will be playable in the upcoming Super Smash Bros game for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. You can hear his comments at the 1:50 mark in the video embedded above.
Activision hasn’t mentioned at all if Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will be appearing on the Wii U. We know that the previous game Call of Duty: Ghosts didn’t sell well on the platform, but could the company be bringing the latest game in the series to the platform? Well, a bit of digging has found Wii U written in the official website’s source code. You would have thought if it was coming to the platform Activision and Nintendo would have announced it by now, but the same thing happened with Call of Duty: Ghosts. We shall have to wait and see.
Beloved Nintendo character Wario has his very own section on the North American Nintendo 3DS eShop this week. The company has listed which games Wario has appeared in and they list Super Smash Bros 3DS as one of those games. Wario has yet to be officially announced, but it would be surprising if he wasn’t added.
US video game retailer GameStop have teased on Facebook that they have a big announcement to share with everyone tomorrow. They showed the image which is posted above which looks like a protagonist from the Assassin’s Creed franchise. Most people assume it will be Assassin’s Creed Comet which is rumoured to be in development for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. While PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners will get the gorgeous Assassin’s Creed Unity. When the news was originally reported there was no confirmation of a Wii U version. We shall have to wait and see tomorrow.
Thanks to those who sent this in.
Update: Turns out the rumours and guesses were wrong. The big news is that GameStop will have an exclusive Red Hood story pack for Batman Arkham Knight which is on PS4, Xbox One, and PC
