Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 Stage Demo, Floor Footage E3 2013 Press Conference Trailer Videos (Xbox 360, PS3, PC)

Awesome angelic boss battle!

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is coming in 2014 for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. At E3 2013 we saw even more awesome footage of the game in action.

Gameplay-wise, the game looks to be pretty much exactly the same, but developer MercurySteam has kicked everything up a notch with the powers and moves you have available, and the fact that you play as Dracula himself in this game is absolutely awesome.

The game also has more of a goth focus, even though it is set in the modern world.

Players can now upgrade their Weapons by the combos you perform, instead of having to use in-game currency. Putting the focus squarely back on fighting and taking out enemies.

Additionally there will be no loading times during the Story Mode and it will also be much longer than the previous game.

One cool new focus of this game will be on platforming, something that took a major backseat with the first Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, but has been a huge focus of past Castlevania games… And the way the developers brought it back is very well done and cool, reminding me of something like Prince of Persia.

Check out the videos to see more of the nitty-gritty with the next installment in the Castlevania series, hitting in 2014 for current-gen consoles and PC.

Batman: Arkham Origins Stage Demo E3 2013 Trailer Videos. Combat System And Gameplay Look Incredible. Crime Scene Investigations Added

Batman: Arkham Origins Crime Scene Investigation Gameplay Screenshot (E3 2013)

Crime Scene Investigations are new to Arkham Origins.

Batman: Arkham Origins was at E3 2013 from publisher Warner Bros. Interactive and new-to-the-franchise developer Warner Bros. Games Montreal, and marks another huge title from the WB.

This new developer was established only in 2010 and their first task was to take the reigns of the Batman series.

Because of this, many people are skeptical about Batman: Arkham Origins living up to the very high pedigree of former developer Rocksteady, whose “Batman: Arkham Asylum” and it’s sequel, “Batman: Arkham City”, were huge critically acclaimed and best-selling hits that put them on the map.

Luigi Rescuing Daisy From Waluigi? Nope. But More Luigi Action In New Super Luigi U E3 2013 Trailer Video

New Super Luigi U Mushroom Power Nabbit Gameplay Screenshot E3 2013 Trailer

Nabbit and Luigi powering up with Mushrooms.

I wish Luigi had to rescue Daisy from Waluigi in New Super Luigi U. This E3 2013 trailer for the New Super Mario Bros. U DLC, shows off players controlling Luigi through a number of the more difficult versions of levels from the core game.

While this is absolutely awesome and a welcome addition, as is the new playable character Nabbit, it is somewhat disappointing that they didn’t come up with a new story or at least a cool twist on the story.

Now that you are controlling Luigi, they could’ve made Waluigi star in a core Mario game for the first time, and finally developed Daisy into her own character. Sadly that isn’t the case. Maybe in a second piece of Downloadable Content?

Doubtful but I hope that Nintendo listens to the guy who suggested this idea in the youtube comments, as it’s a great idea and something Nintendo should explore in the future!

Mario & Luigi: Dream Team E3 2013 Trailer Videos (3DS). Enter Giant Luigi

Mario & Luigi 4: Dream Team Giant Luigi Gameplay Screenshot (3DS)


Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Bros. for 3DS is among my favorite and most anticipated upcoming releases. It hits on August 11th and is the 4th entry in the super awesome Mario & Luigi RPG series and the first entry on the 3DS.

I can’t wait for this game!

The best thing about this game is simply how innovative, unique, and fun it looks. These games are always AAA and as good as Action RPGs come, and this one looks to 1Up the outstanding Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story (the third game in the series. Second was Partners in Time on DS, first was Superstar Saga for GBA).

They do that by making the game even weirder and crazier, with Mario entering the psychedelic dreams of the oddball bro Luigi, and messing with the sleeping Luigi to effect the game world as you explore it. You’ll not only see a giant Luigi, you’ll ride a ball of thousands of Luigis, ride a hundreds of Luigi’s tall “Luigi-Tower”, and pull Luigi’s mustache to effect the location you’re exploring! Absolutely GENIUS.

Love the artwork.


Sweet Dreams, Luigi
Mario and Luigi embark on the adventure of their dreams in a hilarious action RPG that combines the resort world of Pi’illo Island with the wild landscapes of Luigi’s imagination, where anything can happen. Meet a host of hilarious characters as you strive to rescue Princess Peach and help Prince Dreambert free his petrified Pi’illo people from the bat-king Antasma’s curse.

Key Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Features:

* Spawn hundreds of Luigi’s that mold into different forms like bouncy towers, wrecking balls and giant hammers for special attacks or to pass obstacles.
Poke, tickle and move a sleeping Luigi on the lower touch screen to alter the dream world on the upper screen.
* Master two worlds by switching between controlling both brothers when battling in the real world and controlling Mario and an army of Luigi’s in dream-world battles.
* With the Nintendo 3DS system turned sideways like a book, experience larger-than-life Giant Battles with a gargantuan-size Luigi on one screen and the enemy on the other screen.
* Find new items and gear to customize Mario & Luigi to fit your play style.
* To help players through the adventure, the game offers various support features, like a Hint System that offers tips on surviving a particular engagement, or an Easy Mode to make a particular battle easier.

The Wonderful 101 E3 2013 WiiU Trailer Videos, Screenshots

The Wonderful 101 Superhero Powers Artwork WiiU

Such awesome art!

The Wonderful 101 release date is on September 15 2013 by Platinum Games exclusively for WiiU and it is one of the biggest WiiU titles yet.

The game is made by the same developers who brought you games like Viewtiful Joe, Okami, God Hand and Bayonetta, and looks mightily impressive and awesome.

It’s somewhat similar to Pikmin, but you control superheroes who, much like Captain Planet, combine their powers to summon new attacks and devastate foes. It makes heavy use of the WiiU GamePad and is a definite core game that hardcore gamers will love.

Super Smash Bros. Wii U 3DS Wii Fit Trainer Girl And Animal Crossing Villager Join Cast Of Characters

Wii Fit Trainer Girl Gameplay Super Smash Bros. WiiU 3DS Screenshot

Wah?! Now THIS is interesting…

Super Smash Bros. WiiU/3DS has a new challenger! Wii Fit Trainer joins Villager from Animal Crossing as the two newest cast members to star in the game, alongside the already announced Mega Man in Super Smash Bros. 4!

WII FIT TRAINER GIRL!?! Absolutely… GENIUS! The development team of Super Smash Bros. is known for putting in completely obscure characters that no one has heard of or no one would expect to see in the new Smash Bros. games.

Villager Super Smash Bros. 4 Gameplay Screenshot WiiU 3DS

Hahaha, awesome.

This started with Ice Climbers, Mr. Game & Watch, Pichu and Dr. Mario in Super Smash Bros. Melee for GameCube. And continued in Super Smash Bros. Brawl for Wii with characters like R.O.B. the Robot, Lucario, Pokemon Trainer, and Toon Link!

I have to admit part of me thinks it is a waste of a character to have “Wii Fit Trainer Girl”, but another part of me thinks it is absolutely genius and once again proves out Nintendo’s humorous tone for the series. It also adds another female character which is always a plus.

Of course, another unexpected character was “Villager” from Animal Crossing! While neither of these characters are “cool”, I think both of them are great selections and it’s nice to see an Animal Crossing character playable. Which is great, especially considering the absolute hit Nintendo has on it’s hands with the newest Animal Crossing game, Animal Crossing: New Leaf for 3DS.

I wonder if K.K. Slider will be playable…

Super Mario 3D World Is New Non-Side-Scrolling Mario Game (WiiU). Cat Suit Power Up And 4-Player Simultaneous Play As Peach, Toad, Mario, Luigi (Ala Super Mario Bros. 2)

Super Mario 3D World WiiU Character Artwork

So out of leftfield! I love it! Cats! :D

Super Mario 3D World for WiiU has been announced via Nintendo’s E3 2013 Nintendo Direct presentation which showed off footage of the all-new non-side-scrolling Mario game.

This game expands on last year’s 3DS title “Super Mario 3D Land”. As the name suggests, it is not “Land” (like “Super Mario Land”) but “World” (Like Super Mario World), and thus is a step-up and giant expansion of what we saw on the 3DS, this time on the WiiU with console-lized HD graphics and cool new features.

The biggest feature of Super Mario 3D World is the addition of Peach, Toad and Luigi as completely separate playable characters all with their own separate abilities modeled after Super Mario Bros. 2! Not only that, but you can play as… wait for it…. CAT MARIO! The Cat Suit allows you to transform into Cat Mario, Cat Luigi, Cat Peach or Cat Toad with some really cool new abilities.

Super Mario 3D World Cat Mario Gameplay Screenshot

I love the way you can leap between platforms as a Cat!

The Cat Suit allows you to run very fast, quickly “pounce” and shoot downward towards platforms as you leap, catlike, from hill to hill, and best of all, the ability to climb walls! While the Cat Suit sounds completely ridiculous at first, once you see it in action you will cheer. It really makes the game look so much funner than it would without it and makes the platforming pop even more above and beyond standard Mario.

Get a much more in-depth view of the game with this Developer Interview.

Other than that, this game looks like Super Mario 3D Land, just not in stereoscopic 3D. The viewpoint is the same as in the 3DS game, and Shigeru Miyamoto emphasized that this game will have a greater focus on Pipes and Warp Pipes in this game, and you can actually see inside the pipe as your three other buddies go through them.

Super Mario 3D World 4-Player Platforming Screenshot Wii U

Remember these levels? Now with four players!

All in all, Super Mario 3D Land is a nice surprise, although not as huge of a leap for a new non-side-scrolling Mario game than say, the first time we saw Super Mario Galaxy. In that sense it is a bit disappointing, but once you see the game in action and realize that you get to play through it with four of your buddies on the couch in local multiplayer (will it support online multiplayer? We can only hope!), you will be hard pressed not to have a smile on your face. I know I sure did! Can’t wait to play it, and definitely more excited for this game than New Super Mario Bros. U.

It should be noted that this game and the new Donkey Kong are the titles Nintendo seems to work be working on first, and trying to get them out quickly to boost sales of the WiiU. Therefore, these games are based on previous games (Donkey Kong Country Returns and Super Mario 3D Land), which allows Nintendo to build and make them much quicker than if they had to build a completely new, and more innovative and unique game, in the vein of what we saw with Super Mario Galaxy. So take heart, a more innovative Mario game will definitely come soon enough, albeit probably not for another year or two.
