Gears of War 4 is coming to Japan:
Following its October release in the states, Microsoft has revealed that Gears of War 4 is coming to Japan on May 25th. This news was unveiled after a new version of the game’s “Tomorrow” Cinematic Trailer was released, and the game will include three editions for purchase upon launch, one coming with a Season Pass. The game will also contain both English and Japanese subtitles, and holds a CERO Z rating.
Nier Automata has shipped and sold one million copies:
It’s only been out since the 23rd of February, but Square Enix has reason to celebrate, as Nier Automata has passed the 1 million sales milestone, which includes shipments and digital purchases. This is great news for Platinum following the cancellation of Scalebound, which many thought would signal a dark turn for the company.
The sequel to cult indie title The Fall is coming to the Nintendo Switch:
Announced alongside a new Story Trailer (which you can watch below), The Fall - Part 2: Unbound is now releasing on Nintendo Switch, along with Playstation 4, Xbox One, WiiU, PC, Mac, and Linux versions. Plot wise, the game will continue immediately after the events of the first game.
Project Scorpio is getting a reveal soon:
Digital Foundry has tweeted they will showcase an exclusive Project Scorpio reveal on the 6th of this month, following a dry spell of news that began after Microsoft’s last E3 conference. It’s also likely the news will not focus on any games, as Digital Foundry is a very hardware focused site.
Agents of Mayhem has now a release date:
Coming after leaks that hinted around such news, third person shooter Agents of Mayhem has a August 15th launch date, along with a new trailer (which you can watch below). This has been bundled with a whole new load of preview coverage for the title, from sites such as PCGamer and IGN.
