Dragon Ball Kakarot is about to get a lot more Super
Fans of Dragon Ball related games are used to repeating the same iconic “Z” story over and over. At least the manga and the anime are currently sailing in the new and uncharted waters with all-new storylines featuring our favorite heroes. Unfortunately, even the latest Dragon Ball game – Dragon Ball Kakarot is another retelling of the same old story. Fortunately, DLC’s are a thing and Kakarot will be getting two substantial ones that will introduce characters, storylines, and transformations from the Dragon Ball Super anime. For more details on when and what exactly you’ll be getting – check out our original coverage.
Cyberpunk 2077 getting a huge DLC treatment
I like to think that many companies will rethink their approach to gaming after the whole COVID-19 situation settles down. Why? Well, it’s because of CD Projekt Red whose financials aren’t in jeopardy thanks to their great approach to both creating their games and managing their fanbase. They remain confident in meeting their September release date for Cyberpunk 2077 and they even went out and said that the game will feature DLC’s similar in scope to the ones Witcher 3 got. Not only does this mean smaller, free DLC’s but also huge expansions that could be repackaged as a standalone game without anyone batting an eye. For more details on what they have planned for Cyberpunk after its release, check out our original coverage.
Resident Evil 4 remake is a likely possibility
Despite somewhat mixed opinions on the latest batch of Resident Evil remakes, Capcom shows no signs of stopping. And it’s no wonder. The games have been a commercial success across the board and they are probably much easier to do than creating a new game from scratch. A rumor reported from Video Games Chronicle suggests that Resident Evil 4 is in full development for a 2022 release window. Since this is probably one of the more iconic entries in the franchise with numerous ports and different editions, we believe this rumor is probably going to come true. For more details on the original as well as all the remake rumors, check out our original news coverage.
Ghost of Tsushima to feature a robust choice system
Ghost of Tsushima is fast approaching its June release date. With that in mind, Sucker Punch decided to switch its marketing into 6th gear and release a whole host of information on how the game is going to play. First up, the game will feature no hand-holding in terms of waypoints as the players will have to rely on their orientation, landmarks, and knowledge of the world. Second, the game will have a robust choice/consequence system that will see friends turn enemies and vice versa depending on your choices and actions during the game. One factor in this system is how much the protagonist uses his honorable samurai skills vs how much he uses the non-honorable ninja ones.
