J-Stars Victory VS

J-Stars Victory VS +, the upcoming game published by Bandai Namco featuring characters taken from manga series published on the popular Shone Jump magazine, has received a new short gameplay video showcasing one of the better known characters included in the game.

The new video, which can be checked out on Bandai Namco’s official Facebook page, showcases Ichigo Kurosaki, main character of  the Bleach series, as he unleashes one of his more powerful special techniques. The video is rather short, but it’s definitely a good watch for fans of the character.

Another short J-Stars Victory VS + gameplay video has been made available online last week. The video showcased another incredibly popular character that will be included in the game, Son Goku from Dragon Ball. Another short gameplay video featuring Monkey D. Luffy from One Piece has been made available earlier this month, showcasing one of the powerful combat techniques the main character of the One Piece series will be able to use in the game.

J-Stars Victory VS + character roster is going to be incredibly varied, with several fan favorite characters such as the already mentioned Ichigo and Son Goku, Naruto, Monkey D. Luffy and others as well as some characters that are less known in the West. One of these characters, Kankichi Ryotsu from Kochira Katsushika-ku Kameari Kōen-mae Hashutsujo, has been showcased in a gameplay video made available last month alongside Gon Freecs, main character of the Hunter X Hunter series. Even though not many know Kankichi in the West, he is actually quite popular in Japan, with Kochira Katsushika-ku Kameari Kōen-mae Hashutsujo being one of the longest running and best selling manga series ever released.

J-Stars Victory VS + will be released on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita on June 26th in Europe. The game will be made available in North America a few days later, on June 30th.

Star Wars Outlaws has Ubisoft’s biggest marketing budget ever, and the company expects it to have a strong launch

Ubisoft is putting everything they have into Star Wars Outlaws, which comes out next month on August 30th for PS5. The fact that the name includes “Star Wars” shouldn’t come as a surprise when you learn that the company is putting a lot of money into marketing the project and thinks it will do very well.

The CEO of Ubisoft, Yves Guillemot, made the bold claim during the company’s recent earnings call Q&A (thanks, MP1st), though some investors thought it was even more daring than they thought. Based on Ubisoft’s guidance, Nick Dempsey of Barclays came up with a rough estimate of five million units sold and asked if the company was being too cautious. This is what Guillemot said:

“What we expect is for Star Wars Outlaws to have a strong launch.” One reason is that it’s one of the most anticipated games of the year, which shows how positively the community feels about it. Another is that we’re launching the biggest marketing campaign Ubisoft has ever done for a game.

We’d like to know how much Ubisoft spent to market this and what the company expects to get back from it. We had some small worries when we played the game in person at Summer Game Fest, but we’ll keep an eye on things before and after launch.

Are you excited about how soon Star Wars Outlaws will be out? Do you think the game’s supposedly huge marketing budget has an impact on your life? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Critics and fans alike went crazy for Amazon’s take on the famous role-playing game series Fallout. There were a lot of nominations for 16 Emmy awards, including Best Actor and Outstanding Drama Series. The show was able to reach audiences outside of gamers and got a lot of attention from the industry.

Eurogamer has been keeping track, and now that all the votes are in, Fallout is tied for fifth place with 23 nominations for the 76th Emmy Awards, which are put on by the US Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. With 25, The Bear has the most nominations, followed by True Detective: Night Country with 23, and Shogun with 19.

It shouldn’t be a surprise that Walton Goggins is up for Best Actor for his performance as The Ghoul. Although games will always be our first choice, it’s great that adaptations of games don’t have to be awful, and we can’t wait for the next season of the shows.

Are you surprised by how well Amazon’s version of Fallout has done in the mainstream? Is the curse of movies based on video games finally over? Leave a comment below and let us know.
