Amazon Hints At Gravity Falls Release Date And Price; Pre-Orders Open

If you have been anxiously awaiting Gravity Falls: Legends of the Gnome Gemulets (which was only announced this week), Amazon has put up a listing for the game as well as allowed pre-orders to roll in. According to the listing, the game will be released November 3, 2015 and will be priced at $29.99. While Amazon is known to put up place holder dates to act as release dates, the fact that this does not end on an even date lends credit to the believe that it will be releasing soon. Are you excited to enter Gravity Falls?

Gravity Falls: Legend Of The Gnome Gemulets Coming To Nintendo 3DS And Uses UbiArt

UbiArt is gorgeous. It was used in Child of Light and Rayman Legends and will now be used in Gravity Falls: Legend Of The Gnome Gemulets. As we revealed yesterday the game is a Nintendo 3DS exclusive and looks wonderful judging from the screenshots and trailers which have been released today. Ubisoft, who are the developers behind the game, promise that it will stay faithful to the cartoon which currently airs on Disney XD. It will be released in the fall.

“The game delivers Gravity Falls’ trademark quirky humor in an authentic and interactive way, letting fans play as Dipper and Mabel as they set out to solve mysteries and restore order to Gnome Kingdom. Along their journey, players will encounter many more characters from the show and will explore locations including the town of Gravity Falls, the Mystery Shack, and more. Hirsch also designed the game’s original key art.”

Rumour: A Gravity Falls Game Published By Ubisoft Could be Coming To Nintendo 3DS

There is a rumour circulating around the internet that there’s a Gravity Falls game in development for the Nintendo 3DS and it is published by Ubisoft. The game is based on the American cartoon which is broadcast on Disney XD. The show follows the adventures of Dipper and his twin sister Mable as they unlock the secrets of the myserteous town of Gravity Falls where there are plenty of paranormal and supernatural creatures.

Looks Like ZombiU For PlayStation 4 And Xbox One Will Just Be Called Zombi

We heard ZombiU was coming to other platforms. It has been rumoured for quite some time, but we don’t know how the game will change for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The original was centred around the Wii U GamePad so there’s bound to be some big changes in this revised version for current generation consoles. The Taiwan rating board has listed ZombiU as coming to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but instead of being called ZombiU the game will just be known as Zombi. I guess we should get some official details about the game soonish.

Ubisoft CEO: “We Learned From The Mistakes We Made With Watch Dogs”

Ubisoft CEO, Yves Guillemot, has reassured gamers that the company has learned from the mistakes they made with Watch Dogs. No doubt if you were on image boards and internet forums then you will be aware of the visual downgrade the game received at launch, compared to the debut footage we were shown at E3. The game looked nothing like the one that was showcased at E3 2012 and Ubisoft CEO, Yves Guillemot, says this is something that will never happen again.

With E3 2015 we said, OK, let’s make sure the games are playable, that they’re running on the target machines. When we show something, we ask the team, make sure it’s playable, make sure gamers can immediately see exactly what it is. That’s what we learned from the Watch Dogs experience – if it can’t be played on the target machine, it can be a risk.”

Ubisoft Studios Can Create Low-Cost Games Without Executive Approval

Creative titles at Ubisoft have just received a boost as the company has revealed that Ubisoft’s internal studios can create low-cost video games without receiving executive approval. Providing the games budgets are cheap enough (between $500k – $3 million) then the studios can begin skipping the arduous pitching process. This should lead to some very interesting video games coming from the studio which has brought us games such as Rayman and Child of Light.
