Capcom is bringing the Ace Attorney: Phoenix Wright Trilogy to Switch

Martin Robinson Features and Reviews Editor @vics_viper Capcom had a special Ace Attorney: Phoenix Wright-themed presentation at today’s Tokyo Game Show, and it used the occasion to announce something not entirely unexpected; the Phoenix Wright Trilogy is coming to Switch, PC, PS4 and Xbox One early next year. The Ace Attorney: Phoenix Wright Trilogy first came to iOS devices back in 2013, with a 3DS version following in 2014. This new version does look different, though, with touched up artwork that should fit well on HD devices. The trailer which…

Sega and M2 are bringing Virtua Racing to the Switch

Martin Robinson Features and Reviews Editor @vics_viper Sega’s used the first public day of Tokyo Game Show to announce that it’s bringing its arcade classic Virtua Racing to Nintendo’s Switch as part of the Sega Ages series. Virtua Racing first released back in 1992 for Sega’s Model 1 board in the arcades, marking some of its first experiments with polygonal graphics and the beginning of a golden age for its racing games. It’s enjoyed several home ports since, though with M2 behind this one – who also handled the Sega…

The weekend has arrived in earnest once again, which means that it’s time to play some good old fashioned video games. As we’re on location at EGX 2018 this week, this is shorter than you’re regularly scheduled WAYP – but we weren’t going to skip it, were we?

The Division 2, The Man of Medan, and Untitled Goose Game are all on the docket, as well as my annual hunt for the some crazy-insane…

Review: Transference (PS4)

Transference is one of those games that’s best experienced knowing as little about what awaits you as possible. As such, we intend to remain as vague as possible when it comes to discussing narrative threads and consequences, while still giving you a good idea of how the experience adds up as a whole. Although, with The Lord of the Rings’ Elijah Wood contributing his talents in an artistic director role, what else do you really need to know? In an opening speech from scientist Raymond Hayes, it is explained that…

Hands On: In Hitman 2, You Can Finally Claim Fatalities as a Flamingo

There’s surely a formula to the very best Hitman levels, and the good news is that Hitman 2’s new Miami stage follows it to a tee. While you get the feeling this vibrant environment could have been added as an episode to the first season, developer IO Interactive would no doubt argue that a lot has changed under the hood. From where we’re sitting, it’s more Hitman. But when the levels are this good, who cares? The backdrop, built around a racetrack, sees you trying to eliminate two unscrupulous motorsport…

Hands On: Dreams Is Going to Be a Game of the Year Candidate

Media Molecule’s showing a compilation of mini-games that it’s made in Dreams here at EGX 2018, and the highest compliment we can pay them is that many of them would comfortably hang in the indie stand. We don’t even need to get hands on time with the package’s impressive and comprehensive creation suite to realise that the Guildford developer’s been cooking something scarily special here. The mini-games are vibrant and varied, ranging from arcade shooters to visual novels. The latter, a classic white-on-black text adventure, tells the tale of an…

Reports Say Telltale’s The Walking Dead Final Season Is Also Cancelled Following Layoffs

Earlier this evening, news broke that Telltale Games has laid off 285 employees, effectively closing the developer down. However, initial reports suggested that a “skeleton crew” was being kept on to finish up the final season of The Walking Dead, but now new reports are saying that isn’t actually the case. Sources have told USGamer that the aforementioned skeleton crew isn’t working on The Walking Dead — it’s in fact working on the “Minecraft Story Mode project for Netflix”. This means that the remaining episodes of the final season of…

Japanese Aquaman Trailer Goes All in on Epic Underwater War

Aquaman is now three months away from opening in theaters and Warner Bros. and DC Films are starting to ramp up the promotional campaign. Jason Momoa returns to his Arthur Curry role for the first standalone film for the aquatic superhero, who often ends up at the butt of the joke. Momoa and director James Wan are hoping to take Curry and bring a cool edge that has not been present in the comic books or previous animated shows. While it’s too early to tell if they succeeded on their…

Blumhouse’s Thriller Trailer Turns a Childhood Prank Into a Nightmare

Blumhouse is going all in on its winning barebones production formula with the cheap-looking Thriller, which makes it extra scary by default. Its loose production values add a certain aura to this haunting tale that you would never get with a big budget horror project. Oh, and we should mention, since it’s returning to theaters today, this has nothing to do with Michael Jackson’s Thriller, which is playing in 3D alongside The House With a Clock in Its Walls. Thriller is the latest low budget creeper from Blumhouse, who are…
