Little Witch Academia Flies Onto Netflix

Netflix has announced that the first 13 episodes of Studio Trigger’s Little Witch Academia will finally be available for streaming in the US starting on June 30th.

There’s no word as to when the remaining 12 episodes will be added. Hopefully, it’s a rather short wait. The first batch of episodes will likely have the addition of a Netflix-casted English dub. Who’re are likely the same cast members from the two previously dubbed Little Witch Academia Films(Little Witch Academia and Little Witch Academia: The Enchanted Parade), both of which you can find on Netflix.

The show follows three young witches: Akko, Sucy, and Lotte making their way through witch school at Luna Nova Magical Academy. They go on crazy magic filled witch adventures like meeting the Author of Eclipse and dealing with magical blonde female school rivals. They do all this while the lead, Akko Kagari is just trying to learn how to be a great witch without growing up in a magical home. It’s a grand, spellbinding adventure.

Little Witch Academia is Studio Trigger’s 4th full length, half-hour animated series. You may know them from their previous works such as Kill La Kill, Kizunavier, and When Supernatural Battles Became Commonplace. You could also know them from their equally great shorter series such as Inferno Cop, Space Patrol Luluco, and Ninja Slayer From Animation. However you know them, it doesn’t matter Studio Trigger is a consistently critically acclaimed studio with animation heavily influenced by western media.

Little Witch Academia is a fun show, and you should give it a shot when its first season hits Netflix on June 30th. If you need some Trigger content to tide you over, try watching the first two films or Kill La Kill on Netflix. Here’s Little Witch Academia’s English Dub cast if you’re interested:

Erica Mendez as Akko Kagari
Laura Post as Diana Cavendish
Rachelle Heger as Sucy Manbavaran
Stephanie Sheh as Lotte Yansson and Jasminka Antonenko
Alexis Nichols as Professor Ursula
Jennifer Alyx as
Constanze Braunschbank Albrechtsberger
Hanna
Marianne Miller as Amanda O’Neill

Raiden, the famous shmup series, will come back as a twin-stick shooter on PS5, PS4, and PC

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.

Star Wars Outlaws gives you a deep dive into its huge PS5 open world

The marketing for Star Wars Outlaws makes a big deal out of the fact that it is the “first” open-world Star Wars game, even though Star Wars Jedi: Survivor was already pretty much that. Still, Massive Entertainment, the company that made The Division 2, makes it all seem to work together smoothly, which is likely where the difference lies. Now, that open world is the subject of an IGN First video that goes into great detail about how the playable universe works and all the things you can do in it. See it up there.

Higher-ups at Massive Entertainment talk about how the game is meant to feel like a new cinematic story experience, even though it has no clear ending in the 21-minute video. The main missions will have hand-crafted set pieces that make it feel like Uncharted, and the open world will be huge and full of things to discover.

It’s official that you’ll have to clear a fog of war when you land on a new planet. This means that your map won’t be filled with icons right away; you’ll have to find places and quests on your own. In the deep dive, there are also more things to talk about when it comes to the loyalty system, your reputation, and your skills. You have chosen Star Wars: Outlaws as your second-most-anticipated game for the rest of 2024. It will be out on PS5 on August 30, 2024. It only lost to Astro Bot, which came out a week later.

Bandai Namco and Nike designed Tekken 8 sneakers with tag-team designs

Nike, the maker of high-quality shoes, is working with Bandai Namco, the company that makes the Tekken series, to make a pair of sneakers. The fun competition is part of the franchise’s 30th anniversary celebrations. You can get your own pair for $250 or the equivalent in your country, though they’ll probably be worth a lot more on the sneakerhead black market.

Two pairs of Tekken 8 x Nike Air Foamposite One Fist sneakers are set to come out in September 2024, according to shoe fan Sole Retriever (thanks, VGC). The designs are based on Kazuya and Jin, two main characters in the series. You can get them at Nike and some other stores. People who like hypebeasts and fighting games are likely to buy these quickly, so if you like Tekken and shoes that make people talk, you should probably act fast.

Should Bandai Namco and Nike work together? What do you think? Are you going to fight for your own pair? Make sure to take good care of your shoes and keep their value in the comments section below.
