Red Dead Delayed.

The long awaited sequel to Rockstar’s epic take on the wild west, Red Dead Redemption 2 won’t be riding on to either PlayStation 4 or Xbox One this year after all. The brains behind the Grand Theft series have sighted the need for extra time to produce the best experience possible adding that the studio firmly believed in delivering a game only when it is ready.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is now set for a Spring 2018 launch.

Darksiders III.

Once billed as little more than a darker, edger Legend of Zelda, the Darksiders series has gone on to establish itself as so much more than just the inspiration Link & co. have lent the franchise & now as the third instalment of the series nears, publisher THQ Nordic have the chance to continue establishing Darksiders as a premier action adventure title.
Set during the events of Darksiders 2, the third game of the series promises to offer the same intense level of action and brain testing puzzles that helped establish the previous games while shaking things up a fair bit with the addition of a brand new lead character in the form of another of the Four Horsemen this time Fury.
Darksiders III will be coming to PC, PlayStation 4 & Xbox One next year, until then here is a trailer.

Friday the 13th The Game.

Jason Voorhees is gearing up and getting ready to begin a brand new murderous rampage in just a month’s time (May 26th). Oh yes it’s true, the Crystal Lake killer is indeed head to the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in a game which offers gamers the chance to either take control of the axe wielding maniac himself, spanning a number of his incarnations, or a group of ill prepared campers who must kill or escape his monstrous clutches. Whether you prefer playing the predator or would be pray Friday the 13th The Game aims to offer two distinctly different play styles in hopes the players needed to insure the game remains, viable keep coming back for more. If your still on the fence perhaps a trailer will help.

Bloodless.

In a move that really shouldn’t come as much of a shock to anyone Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Wii U edition is no more. In a statement from creator Koji Igarashi the Switch was wholly blamed for the game’s cancellation and while Mr. Igarashi was apologetic for this, foreseeable turn of events, he was also optimistic that the Switch version of Bloodstained would be worth the trouble.
Wii U backers will now have the choice of receiving either the Switch edition of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night or the PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Xbox One or PC edition of the game before it’s 2018 release.

The Disney Afternoon Collection.

Capcom love reliving past glories and so too do a fair few of us so thankfully The Disney Afternoon Collection should satisfy everyone concerned as Capcom repackage and release six NES classics; Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers, Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers 2, Darkwing Duck, DuckTales, DuckTales 2 and TaleSpin on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC next month. All five games will feature rewind functions, online leaderboards and Boss Rush modes as well as looking all nice and shiny on your HDTV.
Why not take a sneak peak at the trailer and start building that nostalgia.

Sonic Forces.

Sega have yet to really nail down a successful blueprint for Sonic in the third dimension but that, for better or worse, has not stopped them trying and so here we go again.
Sonic Forces is the latest 3D outing for everyone’s favourite hedgehog and it looks much like the 3D Sonic outings which have come before it, roller-coast style stages littered with enemies, rings and all manner of distractions eager to slow the blue blur and that’s about all we know but from the looks of the first trailer there might not be much more to know anyway.
Sonic Forces will make it to PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC by the year’s end according to Sega.

MultNews22

Playstation fans have been eagerly waiting the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy for awhile now and with good reason, N. Sane is after all a generous package featuring ground up recreations of Crash’s early and most popular adventures; Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back and Crash Bandicoot: Warped however Playstation owners might not in the end be the only gamers to actually get their hands on the trilogy according to none other then Sony themselves who took to Twitter this past weekend and clarified the game would be coming to the PlayStation 4 first but not exclusively.
Sony of course, said nothing of where else the collection will be heading but PC is likely and perhaps the Switch?
Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy will be available for the PlayStation 4 from June 30th.
