Brand New Zelda Amiibo Will Drop Fish From The Sky In Breath of the Wild

Posted on December 3, 2016 by Rae Michelle Richards

Nintendo’s brand new The Legend of Zelda 30th anniversary amiibos will allow Link to procure items from the sky in next year’s The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. If you ever thought that what The Legend of Zelda series needed was a delivery of fish from the sky, boy are you in luck. This is the sort of random and WTF kind of fun nonsense that I wish Nintendo indulged in just a little bit more.

Today saw the launch of four brand new amiibo on store shelves – 8 Bit Link, Ocarina of Time Link and Toon Link + Toon Zelda as a two pack.

Here are the unlockables that will drop from the skies of Hyrule once you’ve used any of the four new amibo with Breath of the Wild:

  • “Ocarina  of Time Link will reward you with a random amount of meat.
  • 8-bit  Link will reward you with a random number of barrels. You might find rupees inside too!
  • Toon  Link will reward you with a random amount of fish.
  • Wind Waker Zelda will reward you with a random selection of plants.”

No description of fish, rupees and barrels falling from the skies would be complete without some animated gifs of the new amiibo in action. Thankfully Nintendo’s official Twitter account is here to oblige:



The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild got two brand new trailers earlier this week that fans have of course ripped apart and analyzed.



A Pair of Marvel Vs Capcom Games Coming To PlayStation 4

Posted on December 3, 2016 by Rae Michelle Richards

Capcom announced at the PlayStation Experience today that a pair of Marvel Vs Capcom titles will be making their way to the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro. First up is Marvel Vs Capcom: Infinite, a new title slated for release in 2017. Capcom’s classic Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3 will be getting a PS4 upgrade / re-release digitally on the PlayStation Store, available today.

Marvel Vs Capcom: Infinite appears to take hints from the Marvel Cinematic Universe – featuring Avengers characters proximately in the brief 1:30 teaser trailer that Capcom unveiled during the Sony keynote.  The first new character that we get a look at in the footage is Captain Marvel, who is slated to get her own MCU film due out in 2019 staring Brie Larson.  Representing the Capcom side in this debut trailer are both Megaman and Ryu, from the Street Fighter series.


On the gameplay side of things Marvel Vs Capcom: Infinite will feature 2 Vs 2 battles, as opposed to the traditional 3 on brawls that the series has been known for. Infinity Stones are in-game items that grant a player a temporary boost in a number of different areas – power, space, time, reality, soul and mind – allowing them to hopefully turn the tide of battle. It was also promised that MVC: Infinite would feature “accessible single-player content” including a full cinematic story mode, training, arcade and mission modes.

If you’re looking for a current-gen MVC fix and can’t wait for 2017, Capcom and Marvel have also teamed up to re-release the now half-decade old Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3 on PS4. It will be available sometime later today when the store is updated, as of press time no official price or listing is available.


As Polygon originally reported, the YouTube trailer for the UMVC3 re-release confirms that Windows PC and Xbox One versions of the game will be made available in 2017 as well.

““Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is being re-released for current generation systems; with the PlayStation 4 digital download version available today and the Xbox One and Windows PC versions coming in March 2017!”]”

Ultimate Marvel Vs Cpacom 3 was originally released in 2011 for PS3, PS Vita and Xbox 360 and features 36 different characters from both company’s stable of heroes.

More information about Marvel Vs Capcom: Infinite is available on the official PlayStation Blog.


Lawbreakers Returns With New Trailer & Upcoming Beta

Posted on December 3, 2016 by Rae Michelle Richards

Cliff Bleszinski’s upcoming role-based team objective shooter Lawbreakers has returned onto the scene with a brand new trailer and news about the games upcoming beta.

This brand new trailer quickly inter-cuts footage from several existing roles that we already have tried during the game’s various private alpha tests, including the blade wielding assassin and the chain gun equipped vanguard. Joining them will be a yet as unnamed class that is able to duel wield pistols and teleport a short distance if the brief glimpse in this new trailer is any indication.

Players can now sign-up for the next beta test  on the game’s official website, which will take place sometime in 2017. Lawbreakers is a title that we have previewed a few times – both in written and video format. Apparently the fan feedback from the previous alpha wasn’t exactly positive, with some feeling that the game was just too frantic and fast. Lawbreakers will be a premium priced game, that was originally intended to be free-to-play, and will be published by Nexon America.


New Death Stranding Trailer Paints a Grim Picture

Posted on December 3, 2016 by Rae Michelle Richards

Hideo Kojima surprised the entire internet with a 5 minute trailer for his yet-undated third person action titled Death Stranding last night. In usual Kojima style the trailer contains absolutely no plot or character information, yet this cinematic trailer contains enough interesting moments that we will speculating for months until the release of the next cryptic morsel.

In the opening of the trailer we see a European city under-siege from an army of zombie skeleton soldiers and planes as the camera establishes it self on an unnamed character presumably played by project collaborator Guillermo Del Toro. We see a pair of neon handcuffs around Del Toro’s wrists and in his opposite hand a mechanical womb-like device that contains a fetus. As the the skeleton troops march across the bridge above Del Toro he affixes a tube from the mechanical womb to himself. The camera then zooms down a large drain pipe to reveal more zombie soldiers and a character played by Hannibal actor Mads Mikkelsen.

Alongside the trailer Kojima Productions also released two cinematic style posters:


The world of Death Stranding seems to be an intriguing mixture of World War II era military technology, dystonia undertones, science fiction devices, characters played by well known Hollywood actors and several mysterious babies.

Any other details regarding the game-play, plot or other Death Stranding related topics are merely conjecture. Some folks have speculated that the babies are used as healing items in a future society where the aged literally siphon the essence of youth from the next generation. Others have drawn parallels to the 2006 post-apocalyptic sci-fi film where humans have lost the ability to naturally conceive.

Death Stranding has no release date but more information might be released during Kojima’s panel at the PlayStation Experience today at 1pm PST.
