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.

Going N. Sane?


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.




Retro-Bit have done well in establishing themselves as the brand when it comes to retro gaming in a modern setting and the hardware producer is hoping to build on that growing recognition with the Super Retro Boy, a Game Boy inspired device that offers up to 10 hours of play time and compatibility with all your favourite Game Boy, Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance games.
No solid price or release date as of yet but toward the end of 2017 is being whispered.


Yooka-Laylee Avoiding U.


The Wii U’s days are numbered, you know it, I know it & it seems Playtonic Games know it as the Yooka-Laylee developers have confirmed that their highly anticipated platformer won’t be coming to the Wii U after all. Yes despite being funded via kickstarter specifically for the Wii U the Nintendo edition of Yooka-Laylee ran into, “unforeseen technical issues.” According to a statement from the developers however its far more likely the pending arrival of the Switch was the cataWii Ulyst for the game’s cancellation.
Yooka-Laylee will be released this April 11th, 2017 for PC, Mac, Linux, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.


The Wait Goes On…& On.


It feels like, here in the West at least, that we’ve been waiting forever for the fifth instalment of the Persona 5 series & that sense will now only worsen as the game is set to miss it’s February release and ship instead some time in April 2017. To further add to frustrations Atlus have been more than a little vague as to the purpose of the delay bar sighting; time needed to ensure the game meets the highest standard upon release. Fingers crossed the wait will be more than worth it.


Nintendo Switch.


After what feels like forever Nintendo have finally decided to give the world a look at their next console, the Nintendo Switch. Much as the rumours had suggested the Nintendo Switch will indeed look to be both handheld and home console, allowing players to take their tablet inspired machine with them wherever they go or connect it directly to a big screen for a more traditional home console experience. The distinctly trendy trailer which revealed the Switch also revealed the console will opt for DS style carts instead of disks and feature a detachable controller reminiscent of the Wii’s nunchuk and that Splatoon, Mario Kart and more unexpectedly Skyrim are all to head to the new console, in fact a “sample” list of developers backing Nintendo’s latest endeavour can be found below.
Sadly more juicy details like pricing or system specifications were frustratingly absent from the reveal, however at least we now know for sure which direction Nintendo are heading in with the Switch and everything else will become clear in time.

Gravity Delay.


Kat’s long over due return to Hekseville has been delayed according to director Keiichiro Toyama.
