Monster Hunter World is, in many ways, a mystery. How will the game teach its notoriously in-depth combat systems to new players? How well will the online systems work? What is the full scope of the world that players will explore?Capcom hasn't answered those questions yet, but it did allow me to play through a multiplayer mission with the game; and there's one thing I can say definitively about Monster Hunter World at this point: the gameplay strongly adheres to the Monster Hunter formula.That might sound too obvious. But the sentiment around the game, especially across message boards and article comments, has been primarily been concern that World will make too many concessions for Western audiences. The fear seems to be that the game will dumb down its complex battle system for something dramatically more simplistic.And Capcom has made some concessions to make World, in some ways, easier. Quest markers help guide you around the environment in a way that eliminates some of the trial-and-error exploring of previous games. And being able to call in friends to help in the middle of a hunt is a feature the series just hasn't experimented with before. But the overall feel of World's combat is, almost to a fault, incredibly faithful to the franchise's roots.Monster Hunter is infamous for its in-depth combat system. Each weapon is essentially its own class, and there are 14 unique weapons. The combos, timing, and strategies for each are so different that, to be truly, effective, the game almost requires specialization. And even then, it takes dozens of hours to master the nuances of a particular weapon type.But the combos and controls for the weapons in World, even shifting from a handheld device to a home console controller, feel strikingly familiar. Anyone who's invested time in Monster Hunter previously will find World's playstyle recognizable. And even without playing the game, the one thing that's apparent from trailers of the game is World's visual upgrade. Monster Hunter World finally looks like the Monster Hunter game that you imagine when playing. Generations and 4 Ultimate didn't look bad, but there's only so much detail that can fit onto a portable console's screen. Freed of those constraints on a large-screen TV, you see little details about each monster and even your own character that you might never have noticed before. The way that muscle and sinew ripple, or the ragged breaths of a beast on its last legs. So the bigger mystery with Monster Hunter is actually: how will the game be received when it comes out in the US? Games like Dauntless, which went into open alpha recently and that is strongly inspired by Monster Hunter, show that there's an appetite for open-world creature slaying. And the online environment of something like PS4 and Xbox One allow for shared experiences that, in the US, are much more common ways for gamers to get together than gathering around the collective glow of a few 3DS screens.Monster Hunter has always been much more popular in Japan than any other territory, but World could potentially be the game that elevates it from niche Western franchise to verified worldwide hit. The game has a demanding learning curve, but so does the undeniably popular Dark Souls series. And games like Destiny show that there's a mainstream passion for loot-driven quests that require an extensive amount of grinding (another mainstay system of the Monster Hunter franchise, but one that requires a lot more time than a single-mission to be able to comment on any improvements).Series fans are undoubtedly excited for the high-fidelity graphical facelift of World, but will that be enough to bring in a new crowd of Hunters? That's a mystery that will can only be answered when the game launches next year.Info from Gamespot.com

Xbox One players have a generous selection of new games to play this week. Five new titles are available for the console today, with a number still to come throughout the rest of the week.Today's batch of releases is headlined by Madden NFL 18, but only the game's premium GOAT Edition; the standard release arrives a bit later, on August 25. This entry introduces some rather big changes to the long-running sports series, one of which is the new Longshot mode. In this "cinematic" campaign, players take on the role of Devin Wade, a former standout high school quarterback struggling to make it to the NFL. Critics were certainly impressed by this year's installment; GameSpot scored the football title a 9/10 in our Madden NFL 18 review.Also available today is The Escapists 2, the follow-up to the 2015 prison-escape game. This installment features improved visuals, 10 unique themed prisons, a new combat system, and many other features. GameSpot found the first title to be enjoyable, awarding it an 8/10 in our Escapists review and calling it "a gratifying game that provides dozens of hours of entertainment." The Escapists 2 retails for $20/£20.Rounding out today's list of releases is Super Comboman, a colorful side-scrolling beat-'em-up featuring fluid combos and upgradable moves; SwapQuest, a puzzle game with RPG elements; and Rivals of Aether 1.0, an indie fighting game that includes Ori from Ori and the Blind Forest as a free DLC character. Super Comboman and Rivals of Aether both retail for $15/£12 each, while SwapQuest costs $10/£8.A number of other titles are slated to arrive later in the week. Tomorrow sees the Portal-like ChromaGun and Masquerada: Songs and Shadows come to the Xbox Store, while Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Legacy and the Diablo-style RPG Path of Exile launch on August 25.

We've already seen quite a bit of Assassin's Creed: Origins' new and improved gameplay, and today Ubisoft gave us a better idea of what we can expect from the game's story. A new cinematic trailer sets the stage, revealing that the game will take place in a country on the brink of catastrophic war.The video portrays a deeply divided Egypt, with several different forces all laying claim to the region. Ptolemy, Cleopatra, and Julius Caesar are vying for power and revenge, and they amass armies to fight each other. Check it out in the embed above.Intrigue and political maneuvering are familiar ground in the Assassin's Creed series; Assassin's Creed III, for example, tasked you with completing your own, personal quests while also navigating through the guerrilla war between American colonists and the British Army. It'll be interesting to see how Origins deals with these themes as they appeared in the Ptolemy era.Ubisoft released another cinematic trailer during Gamescom which introduces the leaders and pivotal characters in the game. In addition, in a recent interview with GameSpot, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillamot said that Origin's best console version will be on Xbox One X. "We did a deal with Microsoft on Assassin's Creed: Origins," said Guillemot, "which is taking really good advantage of the power of the machine."Assassin's Creed: Origins launches on October 27 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.Info from Gamespot.com

Ahead of Gamescom 2017, Nintendo unveiled three brand new pieces of content for its Switch team-based shooter, Splatoon 2. These include a new map, a new Salmon Run stage, and a new special weapon, all of which are set to debut soon.The new map is called Manta Maria. It's a large sailboat moored at a harbor. The focal point of the stage is its three masts and the surrounding netting. It will be be added to the map rotation Friday evening and will be available in both Turf Wars and Ranked Battles. You can get a look at it in the trailer below.Before that, Nintendo will be rolling out a new Salmon Run stage called Lost Outpost. This map resembles a shanty town that was abandoned due to rising sea levels. Teamwork here is especially vital, as the stage features many walls that obstruct your view. Lost Outpost will be available following a free update on Wednesday, August 23.The final new piece of content that Nintendo announced today is a brand-new special weapon, the Bubble Blower. This special allows players to launch up to three large bubbles, which will explode when shot with your team's ink. The bubbles also serve a defensive purpose, as they can protect you from enemy fire. The Bubble Blower will be coupled with the game's next free DLC weapon, the Forge Splattershot Pro, which is coming to the game next week, on September 1.Also occurring that same weekend is Splatoon 2's next Splatfest. This competition asks players which superpower they would rather have: invisibility or flight. Exact timing details still haven't been announced, though like last time, it will likely begin at 9 PM PT/12 AM ET and run for a full 24 hours.Info from Gamespot.com

Following last week's teaser video, Nintendo has revealed the next free DLC character coming to the Switch fighting game Arms. The title's version 3.0 update will add the "street performing pugilist" Lola Pop to the roster.Described as a "well-traveled clown with a personality as colorful as her clothing," Lola Pop looks to be a fun addition to the unorthodox fighting game. Her hair and arms resemble candy, and just like a real clown, she can inflate her body like a balloon, which provides "great defensive qualities." You can take a look at her unique offensive style in the trailer above.A new stage will also debut alongside Lola Pop, and fittingly, it too is candy-themed. Lola comes equipped with three brand-new sets of Arms; one is a pair of nunchucks, while another is a shield that can deflect punches back at your opponent.Lola Pop is the second free DLC fighter to come to the game since its release. Last month, Nintendo added the Arms Grand Prix champion Max Brass to the roster. He rolled out alongside a new versus mode that lets one player play as Hedlok. The game's most recent update added training exercises.Switch owners who have yet to pick up Arms will soon have another chance to sample the game; Nintendo announced today that another free Global Testpunch demo will be available this weekend. The Testpunch begins at 8 AM PT/11 AM ET/4 PM GMT on August 25 and runs until 1 PM PT/4 PM ET/9 PM GMT on August 27.Info from Gamespot.com

Bandai Namco has unveiled a special Collector's Edition for Dragon Ball FighterZ, the upcoming Dragon Ball fighting game from Guilty Gear developer Arc System Works. The publisher also announced what bonus items players will receive by pre-ordering the title.The Dragon Ball FighterZ Collector's Edition retails for $140. Along with a copy of the game, the package includes a 7-inch statue of series hero Goku with "exclusive 'manga-dimension' coloring," a steelbook case, and three art boards, all of which is housed in a special CollectorZ box. You can take a look at the items below.Those who pre-order the physical version will get two early unlockable characters: the recently revealed Super Saiyan Blue Goku and Super Saiyan Blue Vegeta. You can see screenshots of the two fighters above. Additionally, pre-ordering the game will net players two "exclusive lobby avatars."Dragon Ball FighterZ is releasing for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam in early 2018. A closed beta is set to begin for PS4 and Xbox One on September 16. Xbox One players can register for a chance to participate in the beta through the Xbox Insider program, while PS4 players can sign up at Bandai Namco's website, though as of this writing it appears to be down.This story has been updated.Info from Gamespot.com

Bandai Namco has released a new trailer for Dragon Ball FighterZ. The video gives fans their first look at some of the game's newly announced characters in action, as well as a brief glimpse at its original story mode.As revealed last week in the latest issue of Jump magazine, Android 16 and Android 18 are two of the new characters who'll be playable in the anticipated fighting game. Android 18 in particular is one of the more interesting additions to the roster, as she's joined by Android 17 to perform certain attacks.The trailer also showcases the first gameplay footage of Piccolo and Krillin, demonstrating each fighter's unique abilities. Piccolo can extend his arm to grab faraway opponents, while Krillin can use his signature Destructo Disc attack and change the trajectory of his ki blasts.The most intriguing part of the trailer comes toward the end, when fans get a brief look at the game's story mode. Rather than retelling the events of the series, Dragon Ball FighterZ features an original "forbidden" storyline that imagines Android 16 being revived to battle Goku and friends. It looks to take a dark turn, as many of the series' heroes can be seen falling in battle.Along with the trailer, Bandai Namco has released a handful of new screenshots for the game. These include the first in-game images of Super Saiyan Blue Goku and Super Saiyan Blue Vegeta, both of whom will be offered as early unlockable fighters to everyone who pre-orders a boxed version of the game. You can see the new screenshots above.Dragon Ball FighterZ is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam in early 2018. The game will be available in a $140 Collector's Edition, which includes a Goku statue, steelbook case, and other collectible items.

Update: GameStop briefly brought pre-orders for the system and various bundles online through its website. However, heavy traffic has seemingly taken it back down. It's again now redirecting visitors to ThinkGeek, which has amazingly sold out of all seven of its high-priced bundles.Original Story: Numerous retailers in the United States have brought their SNES Classic Edition pre-orders online today, only for them to sell out right away. GameStop is among those offering pre-orders right now, but you may have to head into a store to secure one.As of this writing, GameStop's website is completely offline, no doubt as it's hammered by people refreshing in the hopes of pre-ordering a system. (It's now redirecting visitors to the website of ThinkGeek, which GameStop owns, and not offering any easy way to refresh GameStop's homepage.) But it's also announced on Twitter that it will be taking orders in its physical stores. Given the limited quantities that are sure to be available, however, you still may not have any luck that way. Several stores we checked with were unsure of how many units they would receive and, as a result, said they were not yet taking pre-orders.I am 43rd in line. pic.twitter.com/WEdGacXxfv — Sean Hollister (@StarFire2258) August 22, 2017We managed to get to a GameStop store in LA that had them in stock, only to find out that it was only offering bundles. One bundle costs $120 and comes with the Playing With Super Power paperback book and an extra, third-party controller. The controller, in particular, is a curious inclusion given that the SNES Classic already comes with two controllers. Other options ranged in price up to $190 for a bundle with a hardcover book, wireless third-party controller, and other unrelated physical items (like a puzzle). Similar bundles are also now being sold online on ThinkGeek's website.Both Best Buy and Amazon brought SNES Classic pre-orders online overnight--and despite the hour, they sold out quickly. Walmart and Target followed during the day today, and those have also disappeared. Toys R Us is also expected to offer pre-orders at some point, possibly in the near future.We'll continue to update out SNES Classic pre-order guide with the latest details on availability. It's unclear if additional pre-orders will be offered from these retailers before launch on September 29. Nintendo has said it will only offer the system during 2017, but it claims it will offer far more units than it did of the hard-to-find NES Classic Edition.The SNES Classic consists of 21 games, including the never-released Star Fox 2. It also has a newly revealed Rewind feature that allows you to replay a portion of a game. We got our hands on one recently and were sure to compare its size with the original SNES and a banana, among other things.This story has been updated.Info from Gamespot.com

When Phil Lord and Chris Miller were fired from the upcoming Han Solo movie in June, there was reportedly only a few weeks of filming left. However, this has now stretched on to several months of reshoots on the Star Wars spinoff, with replacement director Ron Howard in charge. It has now been revealed that actor Michael K. Williams, best known for playing Omar Little in The Wire, is one of the casualties of additional photography.In an interview wth Deadline, Williams--who is also known for Boardwalk Empire and 12 Years A Slave--revealed that scheduling issues meant that he was unable to return to London to reshoot his scenes. As a result, he had instead been cut out of the movie entirely."When Ron Howard got hired to finish out the film, there were some reshoot issues that needed to be done in regards to my character, in order for it to match the new direction which the producers wanted Ron to carry the film in," he said. "And that would have required me on a plane a month ago to London, to Pinewood, to do reshoots. But I'm here, on location in Africa."It's scheduling. I'm not going to be back on the market until the end of November after [SundanceTV show] Hap and Leonard, and for them to wait that long for me, that would have pushed back the release date, which I believe is in May 2018. They wanted me now; I couldn't go. So they had to clip-clip-clip."Nevertheless, Williams spoke positively of his Star Wars experience. "I don't think that me not being in the Star Wars family is final," he said. "I left with a very good taste in my mouth about the whole family, and I hope that I left a good taste in their mouth. They're a great group of people, the Lucas family."Howard has been releasing a series of images since he took over the Han Solo movie. The most recent was of an Imperial helmet, while earlier ones include the first look at Donald Glover as the young Lando Calrissian, a picture of Chewbacca on set, and what might be a new alien.The Han Solo movie stars Alden Ehrenreich as Solo and Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca, with support from Glover, Woody Harrelson, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, and Emilia Clarke. It hits theaters on May 25, 2018.Info from Gamespot.com

It was perhaps to be expected, despite Nintendo's claims that it would deliver far more SNES Classic Edition systems than it did NES Classics. While that might prove to be true in the long-term, pre-orders have gone extremely quickly, resulting in some outrageous prices on the resale market.Numerous SNES Classic listings have emerged on Ebay from those who have successfully secured pre-orders. Although that's to be expected, a look at listings that have actually sold show how much people are willing to pay: dozens have sold for upwards of $200, with many going for nearly $300. This, keep in mind, is for a system that regularly retails for $80.There would have undoubtedly been demand for the SNES Classic under any circumstances--the SNES is a beloved system, and the selection of 21 games (one of which, Star Fox 2, was never released) is very good. But a number of factors have only served to intensify demand: namely, how difficult it was to buy an NES Classic, the surprise discontinuation of that system, and Nintendo's announcement that it only plans to ship SNES Classic units until the end of the year.Several opportunities to pre-order a SNES Classic have been available in the US today. However, the first batch (from Amazon and Best Buy) went live overnight and were gone by the time many people woke up. Others, including those from Walmart at Target, disappeared even more quickly. GameStop's website has been down for a good portion of the day, but it did take pre-orders in stores--although, at least in some cases, it only offered bundles. ThinkGeek had the system available, but only in pricey bundles that have sold out.We'll continue to update our SNES Classic Edition pre-order guide with the latest details on where you can pre-purchase the system. But with the way things are going, you may have to wait until launch to have a real shot at getting one. Info from Gamespot.com

The beautiful, nostalgia-inducing Super Nintendo-themed New 3DS XL is on its way to Europe. With Gamescom 2017 underway, Nintendo made the announcement today, providing Europeans with yet another 3DS model to choose from.This system appears to be identical to the Super Famicom-themed 3DS released in Japan last year. Nintendo said at the time that it would not be released in Europe, but perhaps with the SNES Classic Edition driving interest in the Super Nintendo, the company reconsidered. Note that this a New 3DS XL system, the top-of-the-line version of the handheld, which is capable of displaying stereoscopic 3D graphics, unlike the recently launched New 2DS XL.The SNES Edition 3DS is designed to look like an original SNES. When opened, its inside resembles a SNES controller in Europe, which featured red, yellow, green, and blue face buttons, like the Super Famicom. The North American version of the system, by contrast, featured purple face buttons. There's no word yet on a SNES-themed 3DS for North America.Nintendo will release the SNES Edition 3DS on October 13 and, as is often the case in Europe, does not include an AC adapter. On the same day, three games will be added to the budget Nintendo Selects line of 3DS titles in Europe: Super Mario 3D Land, Luigi's Mansion 2 (known as Dark Moon in North America), and Kirby: Triple Deluxe.Info from Gamespot.com

August 22 update 6: Toys R Us has announced on Twitter that it will not offer pre-orders. Instead, it will be available in stores beginning on launch day, September 29. This comes as a surprise, as Toys R Us was among the retailers that Nintendo listed on its official website as offering pre-orders.August 22 update 5: Amazingly, the expensive bundles at ThinkGeek have sold out. GameStop's website returned online this afternoon with the SNES Classic and bundles available, but heavy traffic brought it offline. As was the case earlier, it's again redirecting visitors to ThinkGeek.August 22 update 4: Just as GameStop is offering some pricey bundles in stores, its subsidiary, ThinkGeek, is now selling the system online. Its website offers seven different bundles, ranging from $140 to a whopping $330.August 22 update 3: Walmart and Target pre-orders are indeed gone, at least for now. GameStop's website has been taken offline, but it's taking pre-orders in its physical stores. There's still no word on Toys R Us pre-orders.August 22 update 2: Walmart pre-orders have gone live and seemingly sold out almost right away. Target pre-orders are live but the site seems to be having trouble, and it may also be gone. Likewise, GameStop's website is slow to load, but you might be able to get an order in. Separately, GameStop announced on Twitter that it's offering in-store pre-orders right now.August 22 update: Amazon and Best Buy both briefly offered SNES Classic units in the very early US morning hours today. It came in and out of stock at Best Buy for a period of time, but for now, it appears both retailers are sold out. That said, it looks as if more stores will soon launch SNES Classic pre-orders.Those in Canada will soon be able to pre-order a SNES Classic from Best Buy. The store has announced that pre-orders go live at approximately 10 AM PT today, so you'll want to start mashing F5 on its website around then. It will not be available in Quebec.August 17 update: The previously available Walmart pre-orders were ultimately canceled in the US. Nintendo has since revealed that SNES Classic pre-orders should arrive in the US by the end of August. We don't yet know when they will go up for sale exactly, but you can check out the store listings at some major retailers through the links below. With the end of the month fast approaching, we should have more details soon.AmazonBest BuyGameStopTargetJuly 21 update: For the first time, the SNES Classic has come up for pre-order in the United States. It's unclear how long it will last for, but Walmart is offering the system here.Update: Those in the UK may have missed at least their first chance to pre-order from certain retailers, but Nintendo's online store has the SNES Classic available as of this writing.Original Story: Nintendo announced the SNES Classic today. A miniature version of the classic Nintendo console, the $80 system that comes with 21 games and two controllers launches in the US in September. Given that last year's NES Classic sold out basically instantly everywhere it was sold, fans might be wondering how they can secure the SNES Classic right away.US retailers are not yet widely accepting pre-orders, but in Australia, you can secure a pre-order right now through JB Hi Fi and EB Games. The console sells for $120 in Australia and it looks a little different than the North American edition.UK retailer Game announced today that pre-orders were available for the SNES Classic, but at press time it appears that the allocated units have been sold through.In the US, Amazon has a page up for the SNES Classic, as does Best Buy, but you cannot actually pre-order the system there as of yet. We will update this post as more retailers open pre-orders for the SNES Classic. Keep checking back with GameSpot for the latest.The Super NES Classic Edition features a total of 21 games, including some huge names--EarthBound, Donkey Kong Country, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, and Super Mario World are among those included. But most notable of all is the inclusion of a game--Star Fox 2--that was famously never released.

But unlike that system, it comes with two controllers in the box.On the subject of supply, while Nintendo isn't sharing specific numbers, it did say it will deliver "significantly more" units than it did with the NES Classic Edition. That said, it only plans to ship the system between September and the end of 2017.In Japan, Nintendo is selling the console as the Super Famicom Classic--and its game lineup is not the same as in the rest of the world.

When Gwent: The Witcher Card Game was announced, it seemed at first glance like another one of the handful of collectible card games launching in the wake of Hearthstone. But developer CD Projekt Red revealed later that Gwent would have a full, Witcher-esque single-player story mode, which set it apart from its competitors. Today, the studio finally detailed what, exactly, that story mode will be.Called Thronebreaker, the story mode follows a new character--Meve--in her quest for retribution. According to CDPR, Meve is a "war-veteran queen of two Northern Realms" who must embark on "a dark journey of destruction and revenge." You can see the announcement trailer below.If the trailer is anything to go by, it seems that the mode might have cartoony, story book-like art style, similar to the opening cutscenes in The Witcher 3. It looks gorgeous, and the video conveys a dark, ominous tone."Players will explore new and never-before-seen parts of The Witcher world, embark on thought-provoking quests, gather resources, as well as engage in custom-made story battles which twist the game's rules in wildly unexpected ways," CDPR said in a press release.In the past, CDPR has also shared that the story mode will feature an open overworld that players can explore in between battles. Back at E3 2016, we discussed the game with narrative designer Mateusz Tomaszkiewicz, who revealed that your actions in the overworld will be important in the overarching story. "There are events you can find, there are treasures you can find, some things might change in the map based on your decisions," he told us at the time."It'll be a story told from the perspective of leaders, and this is a big challenge because we have to come up with a new way to introduce choices and a new way to introduce exploration, and how you solve sidequests and side activities," he explained.Thronebreaker is scheduled for release this year on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. If you want to jump into Gwent's competitive multiplayer now, the game is currently in open beta on all platforms.Info from Gamespot.com
