Nothing in the way of gameplay is shown but it sets the tone for the game very well. Van Helsing and Count Dracula come toe to toe for a showdown, smile at one another and then … to be continued.

Deadlight wants you to fear yourself more than zombies

Tequila Works has been showing off thrilling gameplay for their upcoming zombie game Deadlight for some time, but the story that will back it up appears just as exciting. The narrative will be given through fully voiced comic-style cutscenes reminiscent of The Walking Dead comic books. Hero Randall Wayne, living in an alternate 1980s filled with zombies, is left to use his wits and agility to survive. Beyond survival, Randall will come across a cast of fellow survivors who will help him with guns or helicopters, fight some evil non-zombie kidnappers, and attempt to save a woman named Stella. Having such a strong emotional story being tied in with sidescrolling puzzle-survival gameplay, Deadlight is shaping up to be a real treat for gamers and zombie fans alike.  The game will release this summer, but Randall will probably consider it “just one more day”.


Double Fine’s Ron Gilbert and Sega bringing The Cave to XBLA

You might have thought Double Fine had forgotten about XBLA, with their Kickstarter fame all we’ve heard XBLA-wise is rumblings of new Iron Brigade content. Now Sega is publishing their brand new game entitled The Cave, conceived by Maniac Mansion creator Ron Gilbert. It’s an adventure game with puzzle and platforming elements but not in a traditional sense and more Metroidvania-style exploration. You’ll assemble a crack team of spelunkers each with different abilities and personalities. You can switch between any of the three characters on the fly or use 3-player local co-op. The characters include a scientist, a knight and a hillbilly…because why not? Ron Gilbert had this to say about The Cave:

“The concept of The Cave has been bouncing around in my head for many, many years, and then the little voices that tell me to do things said it was time to make the game,” added Ron Gilbert. “I’m thrilled to be working with amazingly talented folks at Double Fine and ecstatic that the team at SEGA believes in adventure games and quirky ideas.

Catch some screenshots after the jump, the game will be out some time in 2013.

Double Dragon Neon video shows reboot is not just for 80s kids

More details are surfacing for Double Dragon Neon, the upcoming reboot of old school arcade brawler Double Dragon.

Our own Nick DePetris got to grips with the game recently at PAX and you can check out his in-depth preview here. Double Dragon Neon is set to release on XBLA Summer 2012.

Babel Rising coming to XBLA in June *Update*

Update: Eurogamer updated with a more definitive date of June 13.

Ubisoft has announced that Babel Rising, the HD remake of the popular iOS and Droid game of the same name, will make its debut on XBLA and PSN at some point during June. A teaser trailer that popped up back in March positioned Babel as a spring release, which would mean it’s due to come out before summer kicks off on June 20, though no mention was made today as to whether or not developer Mondo Production has been able to stay on track for that time frame.

Ubi also released the launch trailer seen above alongside the date. The game’s upgraded visuals and Kinect-powered smiting of the puny Babylonians, whose arrogance has angered God (the player) in the game, are on full display in the vid.

Mad Riders speeding onto XBLA May 30

Techland’s off-road arcade racer Mad Riders got an official release date and a brand new trailer today. The game which is being published by Ubisoft is now set to release May 30 on XBLA. The date is not a huge surprise to us, as we had already spotted a marketplace listing with this date but these don’t always ring true. The game will come with 45 tracks, 3 multiplayer modes for up to 12 players and a large selection of customizable ATVs, Buggies and character styles. No word on pricing just yet other than that it will be the same price as a pizza…we’re not sure if that’s standard or stuffed crust though?

*Update* According to Eurogamer Mad Riders will be priced at 800 MSP on release.


Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode 2 launch trailer

Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode 2 launches for XBLA on Wednesday May 15 for 1200MSP. The conclusion to Episode 1 looks to be pretty intense with a lot of high flying action. Hopefully the Xbox 360 will have the “blast processing” power to handle it all. Don’t forget that owners of Episode 1 will also unlock the special Episode Metal with the purchase of Episode 2. Time will tell if this title corrects some of the mistakes of its predecessor but this trailer has us feeling hopeful.
