HBM News: 6/5/16 - 6/11/16

Well, it was pre-E3 week, and we ended up getting a lot of news.  So I'll actually get to do a longer post for once. Good.

Injustice 2: Yes, this is officially a thing now. You can customize your hero's appearance/fighting style, new characters include Supergirl, Gorilla Grodd, and Atrocitus, the story is confirmed to continue from the previous game, and it's coming next year. Awesome.

Yooka-Laylee: So while we finally got a gameplay trailer for this game, it also came with news that it was delayed to Q1 2017. Hey, as long as the final game is good, that's fine.

Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age: This is basically an HD Remaster of FFXII, based on the Internation Zodiac Job System version. It's only confirmed for PS4, and has the game completely redone in HD, with remixed music, a new Trial Mode, and more. Coming next year.

Just as painted-on as ever, though...
Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night: We got a look at the progress made on the game, and at this point, the graphics look kinda like Dracula X Chronicles, which is fairly good. There'll be a playable demo at E3, which will come to PC for backers soon.

Kingdom Hearts II.8 Final Chapter Prologue: A new trailer was released, giving us the release window of Winter, worldwide. It also said we're not getting new KH3 info until winter. Because Square logic.

Watch_Dogs 2: This had been teased for a while, and now it's a reality. This time, we follow a new hero, Marcus Holloway, in San Francisco, who has been accused of crimes he hasn't committed. There's more freedom in the hacking, allowing you to hack multiple targets at once, you have parkour, melee combat makes use of bolas, and the seamless online play is back. There are 3 special editions available to pre-order with various amounts of goodies, and the game is coming November 15th this year. Looks pretty sick.

Hacking protip: Keep smartphone out at all times for no reason.
Street Fighter V: The Story Mode has been detailed. Named "A Shadow Falls," it's 5 chapters long, allows you to play as all the Year 1 DLC characters even if you don't have them downloaded or they aren't released yet, and you get 30k Fight Money for beating it (50k on hard mode). Speaking of Fight Money, Zenny is not going to be implemented, replaced with a system to purchase Fight Money, which makes more sense to me. Also, soon more things will be implemented, such as Targets (Daily Challenges to get Fight Money), Vs CPU, and Extra Battle.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven: This week, along with a new trailer, we got confirmation that EoH will be digital-only in America. Because Bamco logic.

So, that's this week's news. Now it's time for me to prepare to start documenting E3 stuff in my post on it, so expect a lot more news soon.

HBM, signing out.
