If you liked the 2015 surprise hit, Life is Strange, then I have some good news for you.
Today, the developers at Dontnod Entertainment took some time off from working on their upcoming game Vampyr to acknowledge and celebrate Life is Strange selling over 3 million copies. In the tweet below, the devs express their appreciation for their many fans. However, it’s the end of the video that’s interesting.
Near the end of the video, the devs mention that there will be a Life is Strange 2. They also revealed that the new game has been in development since the original game received a boxed version – which happened last year. Unfortunately, they never mentioned a release date for Life is Strange 2.
It’s hard to believe that the next game in the series would be a continuation of the first game since the ending seemed to be pretty conclusive. In fact, it wouldn’t be surprising at all if Life is Strange 2 featured an entirely new cast of characters.
What do you think? Would you be down for a brand new adventure in the Life is Strange Universe, but with different characters?
In less than a month, E3 2017 will kick off. Wasting no time, Nintendo has revealed their plans for the event. Still forgoing the traditional E3 press conference, Nintendo will be doing their now annual Nintendo Spotlight: E3 2017 video presentation. They will also bring back Nintendo Treehouse Live at E3, where presenters will show off upcoming games for the Switch. Last of all, they will be hosting live-streamed tournaments for both Arms and Splatoon 2 from the show floor.
It’s expected that Nintendo will share new details on upcoming games for the Switch, but for now, these are the games we know Nintendo will have at their booth:
ARMS is a brand new IP coming to the Switch. Some have described this brawler as a mix between Rock ’em Sock ’em Robots and Punch-Out!! If you’re dying to try it out for yourself, don’t worry, you’ll be able to get your hands on this game soon. On June 16, right after E3 to be exact.
The Inklings are making their way to the Switch in the sequel to one of the Wii U’s best games, Splatoon. Splatoon 2 takes place two years after the first game and will boast a variety of new weapons, gear, and maps for players to enjoy. Splatoon 2 is scheduled for release on July 21.
Super Mario Odyssey
E3 2017 will have the first playable build of Super Mario Odyssey. The game will be the first sandbox-style Mario game since Super Mario Sunshine. E3 event goers will be the first ones to get to play the new Mario game, the rest of us will just have to wait until the holiday season.

A new trailer for the martial arts focused online role-playing game, Absolver, has released new details and a release date.
As you’ll see in the video, the trailer dives headfirst into the details of the game’s complex combat system. There are three main styles that players can choose from. The Forsaken style focuses on parrying, Khalt style is good for absorbing hits and Windfall style is for nimble fighters who can dodge attacks.
In addition to the combat styles, there are also different stances that your fighter will be able to use. Each stance will open up new move sets which will, in turn, change the flow of how you fight. If you want to know more, check out the video below.
Absolver has a release date of August 29, for PlayStation 4 and PC.
A new collection of early concept art for Mass Effect: Andromeda has popped up online. The gallery comes to us from former Bioware Montreal Lead UI Artist, Eric Bellefeuille. The images Bellefeuille has shared with us shows what the game looked like in the early stages of its five-year development.
The images not only provide interesting insight into what the game could’ve looked like, but it also reveals a few of the team’s earliest ideas that were nixed in the final release.
Some of these ideas included earning gameplay-enhancing bonuses for scanning Remnant glyphs, an omni glove that shows the mission description and your location on the map, and a much different looking Pathfinder quarters with SAM contained in a Zordon-like tube a la Power Rangers.
You’ll also notice that many of the characters have different looks and descriptions. Most notably Peebee’s appearance, Vetra Nyx’s name change, and Cora Harper sporting a different haircut. It’s also interesting to note that in the screenshot below, Cora is listed as an Asari when she is clearly a human.
You can find the rest of Bellefeuille’s Mass Effect: Andromeda artwork on ArtStation.
It’s only been a week since Nintendo made the surprising announcement that they will be discontinuing the production of the NES Classic. Many fans still feel confused and disgruntled by the baffling decision given that the product was still highly desired. Nintendo clarified its decision explaining that the NES mini was never meant to be a permanent product.
The NES Classic, which is a reimagined miniaturized version of the original NES, has been a hard to acquire item since its release in December 2016. Mainly due to Nintendo’s inability to keep up with public demand. Although Nintendo has given up on the nostalgia-inducing system, it may not be all bad news.
Hot off the heels of the discontinuation, Eurogamer reports that Nintendo has plans on releasing a mini SNES console. The new system is scheduled to release at the end of this year, around Christmas, and is already under development.
Unfortunately, it’s very likely Nintendo will make this new microconsole a temporary novelty as well. Here’s to hoping that Nintendo has learned it’s lesson with the NES Classic and will be better prepared to keep the SNES mini in stock while it’s available.

The fastest man in the world is back for another go in the new Injustice 2 trailer.
To freshen up your memory, The Flash fought for Superman’s Earth One regime in Injustice: Gods Among Us, but he was clearly conflicted by his decision and left the team. In this new trailer, we see the scarlet speedster donning his red boots once again, hoping for a chance at redemption.
Check out the new trailer below
Now that the Arkham series has concluded, Rocksteady Studios can focus on the future. At the moment, we know almost nothing about their new project. However, we can surmise that it will probably be another superhero game based in the DC Universe. Given that, I thought it would be interesting to come up with some ideas for heroes they should consider. These are heroes I’d love to see Rocksteady use for a new game.
Green Arrow is the Robin Hood of the DC Universe, minus the stealing part of course. Like Batman, Green Arrow doesn’t rely on any superpowers. He simply uses his athleticism, archery skills, and tech to dispatch his foes. Making a game around a superhero like this seems like it would be right up their alley. In fact, it might be the safest gamble for Rocksteady.
Since they wouldn’t have to worry about superpowers, they could easily extrapolate what they learned from their Batman games and apply it to Green Arrow. I think it would probably be the most natural progression for the developer. I have further confidence in this idea after playing Horizon Zero Dawn. Guerrilla Games found a way to make bow and arrow combat exciting, fun, and challenging and I believe Rocksteady can do the same.
Could you imagine what Rocksteady could do with a superhero like The Flash? The scarlet speedster has all sorts of interesting powers (other than just running fast) including the ability to pass through solid objects, immunity to telepathy, the ability to create vortexes, lightning throwing, and more. There’s more than enough for Rocksteady to work with here. Just think about how fun it could be to fight the Reverse Flash or Gorilla Grodd at breakneck speeds.
Although Vixen isn’t as big of a headliner as a Superman or Batman, she could be a very interesting choice given her unique skill set. To give a little background to her character, Vixen is a superhero who has the power to use the abilities of any animal on Earth, alive or extinct.
Since her story isn’t as well known as others, Rocksteady could explore her origins. Since she would be gradually learning how to use her abilities, there would be a built-in explanation (gameplay-wise) as to why she would continue to learn new abilities throughout the game. The potential for a game with a protagonist like this would only be limited by the developer’s imagination.
Although Cyborg has recently been getting a big push from DC, he’s still a somewhat undervalued hero. He has an interesting backstory that could be explored much further in detail. And in addition to having a good backstory, he also has amazing powers.
His most well-known power is his sonic cannon, but he also has the ability to continuously adapt the technology that surrounds his body. This means he can enhance his abilities throughout the game. On top of that, he has the ability to immerse himself into cyberspace, which could lead to some pretty cool and maybe cyberpunk-like ideas.
Let’s be honest, Wonder Women is due for a video game of her own, and who better to give us the game she deserves than Rocksteady? Given Wonder Woman’s connection to Greek mythology and her warrior mentality, I think a game with visceral combat would probably work best. As an example, I could see the game being something like a God of War.
The Atom’s powers allow for him to grow or shrink himself or objects at will. This could provide a rather appealing dynamic where you would have to switch back and forth from the normal world to the subatomic world. Imagine The Atom dealing with bad guys at normal size then having to deal with a problem at a subatomic level.
For those of you who don’t know who Jonah Hex is, he’s a Western-style bounty hunter who occasionally time travels in his free-time. His marksmanship and expert tracking skills make him a formidable force to be dealt with. With a character like this, Rocksteady could make a Western-type game, maybe along the same vein as something like a Red Dead Redemption.
This suggestion is a little bit of a stretch since he’s a not as closely affiliated with DC as the others, however, he is a great character who deserves much more attention. Static Shock is a metahuman with electrical powers. He was originally created by Milestone Comics and later incorporated into the DC Universe.
Static’s origin story is somewhat like Cole McGrath’s (Infamous) origin story; he was a normal guy until a big explosion changed him and everyone nearby. Think of Static in an Infamous type of game—it would be perfect.
