Psychonauts 2 to be Crowd-Funded, coming soon!

Standing on stage the Video Game Awards in Los Angeles tonight, Double Fine Productions President and CEO Tim Schafer announced the launch of a Psychonauts 2 crowdfunding campaign on new games crowdfunding site Fig.

“Our fans constantly ask us to make Psychonauts 2, and often we’ve talked about doing it” said Schafer “The problem is that through traditional means we’ve never been able to raise a budget high enough to do it justice. When we crowdfunded Broken Age in 2012 and broke all the records with the amount we raised, it really showed me the power of our community, and it made me think… maybe we can do this, maybe we could make Psychonauts 2 this way!”

Rashid and Karin Blast into Street Fighter V!

A new character and a returning classic, Street Fighter V continues to build its roster!

Rashid
Joining the series from the Middle East, Rashid is an easy going and laid back character that has a very keen interest in technology and the latest gadgets on the market. His fighting style takes cues from parkour and he mixes it up with his unique ability to harness the power of wind. Always first in line to buy new tech, he uses these devices to research and create his fast-paced acrobatic moves, leaving his opponents in the dust and wondering what’s coming next.

Karin
Behind Karin’s golden locks and razer-sharp wit lies a true martial artist trained in the unique “Kanzuki style” of fighting. Utilizing her new dash move allows her to close distances quickly with her opponents and go in for quick high-low attacks or throws. Her well-rounded skills allow her to possess a full set of tools and deploy a wide array of strikes and maneuvers that will have opponents feeling the pressure. For fans who’ve longed for her return, or for those just looking for a quick fighter with lots of versatility, Karin is a welcome addition to Street Fighter V!

KINGDOM HEARTS III TO INCLUDE BIG HERO 6

Finally, some Kingdom Hearts 3 news that isn’t a delay!

LOS ANGELES (August 16, 2015) – SQUARE ENIX® and Disney Interactive today announced that the beloved characters and world of Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Academy Award®-winning film Big Hero 6 will make their debut in the ever-expanding narrative of KINGDOM HEARTS III.

The much-anticipated addition to the KINGDOM HEARTS franchise will take Sora and a cast of Disney companions to the urban setting of San Fransokyo, home of lovable robot Baymax, continuing the events of the animated film.

At D23 Expo 2015, Academy Award®-winning producer Roy Conli delighted fans with the announcement that Big Hero 6 characters will be an integral part of KINGDOM HEARTS III. In a video message for D23 attendees, Conli draws parallels between core elements of the animated film and the overarching KINGDOM HEARTS story, remarking: “Big Hero 6 is such a special film for me – and we always made sure that each action sequence had a very special meaning. The themes in KINGDOM HEARTS and Big Hero 6 match very well. For instance there’s friendship, really important to both stories, and then of course light over darkness.”

I can personally state that I’m very, very excited for this. What about you guys? What worlds would you like to see in Kingdom Hearts 3?

Keeping the Bromance Alive — Yosuke and Yu Reunited for Another Mission!

Woah, more characters for Persona 4: Dancing All Night? Don’t mind if we do! This time we’ve got the true OTP of the series, Kanji and Yosuke! Two hard working dudes that just want to dance!

YA WANT SOME?! WELL OK THEN! Up next on the Midnight Stage is Kanji Tatsumi! The notorious delinquent has a tough exterior, but deep down, Kanji has a soft spot for anything cute, which is why he won’t let anyone stop him from rescuing the members of Kanamin Kitchen! Persona 4 fans get a chance to see Kanji prove he’s all man with his powerful dance moves as he and his Persona defeat Shadows and bring down the house!

Debuting next is Yu’s #1 Best Bro, Yosuke Hanamura! Despite his moments of clumsiness in Persona 4, Yosuke is agile and specializes in fast-paced songs. He comes into Persona 4: Dancing All Night strong with some stylish hip-hop inspired dance moves! Team up with Yosuke and the rest of the Investigation Team as they dance their way to rescue Kanamin Kitchen. Check out his trailer video to see him strut his stuff in some hilarious costumes!

Forget what Persona 4: Dancing All Night is about? Persona 4: Dancing All Night is a story-driven music game that takes place after the events in Persona 4. Players get pulled onto the MidnightStage when the spotlight turns to mega-idol Rise and her junior group, Kanamin Kitchen. Members of Kanamin Kitchen have disappeared and it’s up to the Investigation Team to mount a rescue mission – only they discover the same monstrous Shadows from the Midnight Channel. To make matters even worse, their Persona abilities are rendered ineffective, and the Shadows in P4D can only be defeated by dance, so bust out powerful dance moves to save the day!

With more characters being shown as we get closer to the release, who do YOU want to dance as?
