Firewatch delayed for Xbox One in Europe
Sad news for Xbox users waiting to play the critically acclaimed walking simulator Firewatch. The game has been delayed to September 30. The worst part? Xbox One users are now the only ones trying out the new free-roam mode, so those in North and South America are already enjoying the mode prior to those using other consoles — it will be launched soon though.
Build your own character in Dragon Ball Fusions
Who can’t get on board with game reveals that happen only months prior to launch? Bandai Namco has announced Dragon Ball Fusions, launching on December 13 for 3DS in Japan and February for PAL territories. In the action RPG, players create their own character before calling upon familiar Dragon Ball Z faces to recruit into battle. The real-time battle system is rock-paper-scissors based. Battle through a story in adventure mode or take on friends in multiplayer mode.
Pac-Man 256 removes credits in 2.0 update
Two pieces of Bandai Namco news, what a happy Monday! This second tidbit related to the Hipster Whale developed Pac-Man 256, the free mobile game featuring everyone’s favourite chomper. The game has received a massive 2.0 update where they remove credits and upgrade timers. Those who have purchased unlimited credits for the game in the past will be able to unlock any theme instantly, received an exclusive theme, and continue to be able to play without the interruption of ads or the need to spend coins. Power-ups now unlock over time, with all of them enabled all the time. Upgrades are instant. New themes include Arcade and Moon Lander. Why are you still reading this? Get the update now!
Persona 5 steelbook art revealed
I adore steelbooks as an alternative to normal plastic cases, especially when the game is something as big as Persona 5. The case design for the Western launch has been revealed. While the above graphic states “art not final” we expect that the final product will be incredibly similar. The steelbook is a PlaysStation 4 preorder bonus and is also included for those who are picking up the Take Your Heart collector’s edition that also includes a school bag, soundtrack, and plush. Persona 5 launches for Western countries (North and South America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand) on Valentines Day 2017.
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.
