News Bites – 4th of June 2015
– Thanks to a leaked screenshot on the mobile Playstation store it is pretty safe to say that the long rumoured Uncharted collection will be announced at E3. Titled the Nathan Drake collection it seems to include the 3 main adventures of Nathan and co. No word on whether it will include the PS Vita game Golden Abyss. It is by no means confirmed but it is looking more and more like a sure thing. Really smart move for Sony with there current lack of first party titles for the end of 2015.
– It seems the rules of platform mascots even apply to the Toys-to-life genre with Activision announcing today that the next Skylanders game will be a kart racer. Titled Superchargers, this Skylanders game will feature more collectables and the traditional platforming as well as new Kart racing levels. Activision even shelled out big cash to get Nitro Circus lead man Travis Pastrana to star in the trailer. Check it out for more info.
– Heir to the Gears of War empire Black Tusk Studios has changed its name just ahead of E3. The development group will now known as The Coalition. “In short, The Coalition speaks to who we are as a team, and what it is we’re working on,” studio head Rod Fergusson said in a statement. “A coalition is a team of diverse individuals working together for a common purpose, a concept that we feel describes our studio quite well. Fans will also recognize the Coalition of Ordered Governments (COG) from Gears of War lore.” There is a good chance we will see more Gears of War at E3 next week.
