The sixth installment in the main series of the Dead or Alive fighting game series, which I love, has just been announced and is due for release early next year on the PS4, the Xbox One and PC. Yay!😄 A launch trailer for it has also been unveiled, which you can check out below.
Yes, this is literally yesterday’s news, but hey, I got distracted by the Bumblebee trailer yesterday. Anyway, the sequel to 2014’s The Lego Movie was announced out of the blue a couple of weeks ago and now the first trailer is out. I’m a big fan of Lego and The Lego Movie was a whole heap of fun, so I’m really looking forward to being able to see the sequel, titled The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part.😄
OK, when I first noticed the trailer for Bumblebee (the upcoming film from the Transformers franchise) on my YouTube feed yesterday, it did catch my eye, but I wasn’t terribly excited about it. I was eagerly awaiting the trailer for next year’s Lego movie, after all.😋 Well, I did get around to watching the Bumblebee trailer earlier today and I can now say that I am (cautiously) excited!
This is news from last week, so it’s a little bit old now, but a teaser trailer has been released for the third game in Square Enix’s Tomb Raider origin trilogy, Shadow of the Tomb Raider.
On January 10 of this year, the well-known Japanese RPG Maker-based indie game called Yume Nikki (literally Dream Diary) became available on Steam. At the same time, a related announcement was also teased. Then, a couple of weeks ago, a trailer was unveiled for a new take on this game, to be called Yume Nikki -Dream Diary-. This new game, which unlike the original will use 3D, is not being made by Kikiyama (the creator of the original game) but by Kadokawa Corporation, although Kikiyama has given the project his blessing.
Well, this was unexpected. Yesterday, Nissin (the Japanese food company) released a trailer for what will be the final commercial in their 2017 “Youth” campaign for their “Cup Noodle” product.. That’s right, a trailer for a commercial. This seems to suggest something big. Maybe even giant robot-sized big?
Hollywood films based on Japanese material normally don’t really do a lot for me. Case in point: this year’s Ghost in the Shell. Occasionally, however, an interesting adaptation does crop up. Case in point: the film formerly known as Edge of Tomorrow. Now, I only saw this trailer for Alita: Battle Angel a short while ago, but it certainly seems to have a few things going for it. Christoph Waltz, who is a very talented actor, is in it and James Cameron, who has created some fantastic films in his long career, is one of the producers. And although I can’t say I’m a fan of Robert Rodriguez, as his previous films haven’t really been my cup of tea, the footage in the trailer sure looks amazing, doesn’t it?
