The iconic Mai Shiranui is the busty, scantily-clad female ninja from SNK’s Fatal Fury and The King of Fighters series of games, which I’ve never actually played, even back in their heyday (when they were extremely popular arcade games). But I do have have fond memories of watching my friend play, often as Mai. And while those old 2D sprites were pretty cute, I think this new incarnation of Mai looks a whole lot better, don’t you agree? [^_^]
If you play videos games, you will without a doubt be aware that E3, the world’s biggest electronic entertainment event, is happening right now. This means a lot of new clips from upcoming video games will be cropping up. The one that caught my eye today was this sort of teaser trailer for Resident Evil VII, which is coming out on January 24, 2017 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
The logo is pretty cool, isn’t it? Thumbs up to the person who came up with it! [^_^] I’m a big RE fan, so I’ll be keeping on eye on this particular game, but I wonder exactly where it fits in the grand RE universe, because it seems a bit different to the previous games. Not that I’ve seen it, but I get a kind of The X-files vibe from the trailer and there doesn’t seem to be any familiar characters around, at least as far as I can tell. Also, this game will be playable in VR, which will probably make it a whole lot scarier for those who have VR headsets!
I’ll definitely write further posts on Resident Evil VII in the future, but for, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!
