The game Matt called "the finest game on the 3DS” in his five-star review is back, with its sequel being released early next year. Bravely Second: End Layer will be available on February 26, and as with its predecessor it is a 3DS exclusive. There will also be a collector’s edition released; it includes the game itself (of course), an art book, a soundtrack, and a figurine. Stay tuned to DDnet for more news about a game I, for one, am extremely excited for!
Assassin’s Creed Chronicles returns with India and Russia
Don’t worry, you weren’t alone if you thought that Ubisoft had forgotten about Assassin’s Creed Chronicles after the release of Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China earlier this year. After months of silence on the series, it has been announced that Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India will be out January 12 and Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia will drop February 9. A bundle will also be released on February 9, containing the trilogy of games. The Assassin’s Creed Chronicles series is available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. It will be made available for the PS Vita in April.
Gone Home is finally coming home… to consoles
On January 12, 2016 - two years after its PC release - Gone Home is finally coming to consoles. Gone Home was DDnet’s PC Game of the Year in 2013, as well as a runner up for Best Narrative and Indie Game, so you know it’s worth experiencing all over again on consoles. After a hiatus, the game’s port has gone into development again. Gome Home has actually been redone using Unity 5 (instead of 5). In the above video, the port is described as “picture perfect” in relation to the original PC version. The port will be available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with these editions including 90 minutes of commentary.
Yarny + Yule Log = holiday magic
This is possibly the weirdest news of the week, but it is so amazing: Yarny, from the upcoming game Unravel, has his very own Yule Log video. You’ve seen Lil’ Bub do it, now see a burning log with a video game twist! The video is 50 minutes long and in full 4k glory, making it perfect to put on a loop during your holiday festivities. Unravel will be out next year for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
Does any of this news tickle your fancy or make you steaming mad? Let us know in the comments! And meet us again next week for a new edition of Catch-up coffee Monday.
