Kingdom Hearts III's Release Date May Be Revealed Next Month

It’s never been easy to be a fan of the Kingdom Hearts franchise. All the series titles are wonky, there are various unnumbered games that while unnumbered are still vital to the overall story, and worst of all, the numbered titles are practically fictitious until they actually release. Luckily, we may actually be pretty close to a release for the final numbered title: Kingdom Hearts III.

Last night at the Kingdom Hearts Orchestra World Tour in Los Angeles, series director, Tetsuya Nomura took to the stage to shed some light on the upcoming sequel. When he took center stage, he stated(via a translator) that he would return in a month to the D23 Expo on July 15th. While at D23, Nomura promised to reveal what he dubbed “final information” on Kingdom Hearts III.

We don’t know what the final information is going to be, but fans are presuming it to be a release date. We already knew there going to be at least some Kingdom Hearts III presence at the expo from watching yesterday’s trailer, so it wouldn’t be a terrible stretch. Fans are assuming that this will lead up to a possible March 2018 release similar to when other Kingdom Hearts games have been released. If it doesn’t amount to a date, then 2018 might be the first year in six years without any major addition to the franchise.

Fingers crossed for a bit more information during Sony’s E3 press conference later today. Square Enix has a track record for revealing information while Sony is center stage.

While waiting, you can try enjoying the rest of Kingdom Hearts again on PS4 via Kindom Hearts 1.5+2.5 Remix which collects almost the entire Kingdom Hearts series except Dream Drop Distance. You can find Dream Drop Distance alongside Kingdom Hearts X on the disc for Kingdom Hearts .02 titled Kingdom Hearts 2.8. I would recommend catching up, before Kingdom Hearts III releases, there’s a lot to go over.

Metallica takes center stage on the battle arena of the Fortnite Festival, showcasing their musical prowess in an epic PVP showdown

Published

on

Metallica will be headlining the Battle Stage at the Fortnite Festival, and fans can look forward to an epic performance later today, on the 13th of June. The entire lineup of the legendary heavy metal band has been transformed into digital avatars for the ever-growing gaming platform. Fans can now enjoy their greatest hits and even engage in a thrilling musical player-versus-player game mode.

The collaboration between Metallica and Fortnite marks the start of Fortnite Festival Season 4, featuring an exciting lineup of six Metallica songs, such as “Enter Sandman,”  “Fuel,”  and “Ride the Lightning.”. Additional songs will be introduced as the season progresses. By choosing Epic’s premium Festival Pass, you’ll have the opportunity to unlock all four Metallica band members as playable skins. How about a showdown between Lars Ulrich and Goku?

The aspect that captures our attention is the 16-player musical battle royale. The Battle Stage offers a challenging experience that pushes players to their limits, requiring both physical stamina and a captivating stage presence. Players will find themselves immersed in the intense energy of the four tracks playing simultaneously. Perform with skill, and you can unleash powerful bursts of musical energy, causing less talented individuals to falter and be defeated, with the ultimate victor being crowned the Master of Puppets (most likely).

In addition to that, Metallica will be making an appearance at the Rocket Racing tent, complete with a specially designed track, car, and LEGO replicas of the band members. Is there anything more intense than that?

Do you enjoy Metallica’s music? Could anyone have predicted that the band would rise to prominence in a video game primarily aimed at a younger audience who may not be familiar with their music? And now, let’s turn our attention to the comments section below.

Star Wars Outlaws PS5 Demo Falls Short of Delivering the Full Experience, According to Critic

Published

on

Star Wars Outlaws, although it appeared visually stunning during Ubisoft’s livestream earlier this week, has received some criticism for feeling somewhat outdated. A preview unfavorably compared the release to Uncharted: Golden Abyss, the PS Vita exclusive spin-off that was launched in 2011. However, according to the creative director, the sampler is merely a small taste of what the full experience has to offer.

“When entering a show of this nature, where you’re finalizing a game’s production, you’re faced with numerous decisions. Our producer limited us to just one demo for all the shows we would attend throughout the year, such as Gamescom and Comic-Con,” Julian Gerighty explained in an interview with VGC.

He explained that the events are designed to cater to both consumers and journalists. To ensure an engaging experience, they opted for a 20-minute format that offers a diverse range of content and showcases different game systems. However, they intentionally avoided showcasing the open-world experience at this particular event, as they plan to unveil it during the studio tour and preview event. This will be a brief overview, more of an appetizer than a full meal when it comes to the game.

According to Gerighty, the developer Massive Entertainment has crafted a highly engaging game, with only a portion of its greatness showcased here.

Admittedly, the comments do make sense. It’s common knowledge that creating demos requires a significant amount of the team’s focus. If a game plans to showcase itself at consumer conventions, it can’t just offer a short gameplay experience of two or three hours. That simply won’t suffice when attendees are patiently waiting in line. This seems to be just a subpar demo, which is unfortunate. However, it may not be something to worry too much about in the end.

Published

Ubisoft has given us our first look at The Sky Breaker, the first DLC story pack for Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora. In it, a strange shadow will appear in the sky and threaten the Na’vi clans, who just can’t seem to get a break. It comes out next month on PS5, on July 16th.

A new part of the Upper Plains called “The Heart of the Plains” can be reached by taking the Sky Breaker. Some well-known biomes have changed into new types, and there are also many new ones. Of course, the RDA has also sent out new types of enemies, so you need to be careful. The good news is that not everything is bad. During the Na’vi Festival of Games, players can look forward to timed tasks that are a little less scary. Secrets of the Spires, another story pack, is still planned to be added to the game at some point.
