Announced over the weekend at San Diego Comic-Con was the fairly exciting looking Marvel Contest of Champions.
Set to be released this Fall, the game hopes to be an immersive beat-em-up of sorts, offering players the chance to fight their way through various iconic locations from the Marvel Universe. You’ll be able to collect your favorite heroes and villains such as Iron Man, Captain America, Spider-Man, and Thor.
There are very few contenders left in the 2D fighting game arena. One of the last standing combatants are the beautifully hand-drawn sprites of the BlazBlue franchise. Recently it was announced that the series is going to be making its iOS debut this fall, in a form that you may not quite expect.
BlazBlue: Battle Cards aims to blur the lines between fast-paced combat and deliberate strategic card games, all the while revisiting characters that fans have come to know and love on their home consoles. Look for more information as the game nears launch in a few months. In the meantime, be sure to enjoy the little sneak peak, below.
Godfire: Rise of Prometheus is one gorgeous-looking action/adventure game that’s just about ready to storm the App Store.
You’ll be guiding Prometheus through seven different acts and three possible difficulties, hacking up bad guys the whole way. He’ll also be collecting lots of gear, which is all upgradable and usually includes some sort of special ability such as causing poison damage. It’s not exactly a new idea, but I did think it as pretty cool how the armor sets will actually start to look different as you upgrade them.
I’m also curious to see how players take to the leaderboards. Normally I’m not much of a high score buff, but the leaderboards for Godfire are actually split across all versions of the game. So it’ll be interesting to see how the competition pans out – and will no doubt spark more physical vs. virtual control debates. To which I say “Bring it on!”
Godfire: Rise of Prometheus should be releasing on the App Store in the second Quarter of this year, and it’ll be a premium title.
