N3: Nightly News Narration--Kingdom Hearts, Watch Dogs Delay, & More

Square-Enix has revealed that Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX will launch on the PlayStation 3 exclusively in 2014. The title will include:

  • Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix — previously on PS2 and exclusive to Japan
  • Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix — previously on PSP and exclusive to Japan
  • Kingdom Hearts Re:coded (HD remastered cinematics)

Riot has another game in the works and if you believe hackers, who broke into the Twitter account of CEO, Marc Merrill, that game is League of Legends Supremacy. This is a standalone trading card game like Magic The Gathering, Heartstone, and Mojang’s Scrolls. Originally, League of Legends: Supremacy was trademarked in 2012.

Riot says they have lots of projects they work on at their offices but it doesn’t mean that the title will ever be released. They have said nothing further about Supremacy.

Beenox, the studio behind the The Amazing Spider-Man game, based on the last movie, is hard at work on the sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2. The game is planned to release on PC, PS3, PS4, X360, XBone, Wii U, and 3DS. Beenox is said to be adding Role Playing elements to the new title and it will release around the next film’s release date of May 2, 2014.

How successful is Pokemon X and Pokemon Y? The new Nintendo 3DS game is on its way to becoming the best selling Pokemon title of all time after a two day launch of more than 4 million sales worldwide. Satoru Iwata had this to say:
“The early response to Pokémon X and Pokémon Y not only reaffirms the ongoing passion of Pokémon fans, but also indicates that an entirely new generation of gamers is eager to experience the franchise for itself.”

Looks like a lot of folks ‘Gotta catch them all!’

Assassin’s Creed 4 may be headed to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on October 29. However, PC owners have to wait until November 19 to grab the newest AC title after the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 releases. Seriously Ubisoft, is there any reason to delay the PC version? Why do you continue to hate on the PC platform?

Were you one of the lucky ones that grabbed one of those Amazon or GameStop PlayStation 4 or Xbox One bundles with Watch Dogs? Sad news. Watch Dogs has been delayed until Spring 2014 so Ubisoft can further polish the game. Amazon still has your back. Orders will be fulfilled with just the console and no game in the exact same position your order was received. GameStop, on the other hand, will allow you to swap the game your bundle comes with, cancel the order, or wait to get Watch Dogs shipped until the Spring when it is released.

Who do you think has better customer service here? Bad form GameStop—-bad form.
