This Week on Youtube
What a week for trailers. A ton of new game footage and announcements released this week, and I really had a hard time narrowing down my favorites to these six.
We are going to start this list off with a bang. Watch Dogs is easily one of the most anticipated games of the year and yesterday Ubisoft released its first real trailer for the game. It gives a bit of backstory and shows a lot of action. Definitely looking forward to this one.
Along with this trailer we also found out that Watch Dogs will be released on May 27, 2014 across all platforms and across all continents (including Asia).
Batman Arkham Knight Announcement Trailer
This announcement trailer for the upcoming Batman Arkham Knight is exactly what every fan wants to see from a Batman game. The trailer features a letter narrated by the deceased Thomas Wayne to Bruce, which asks him to give back to the city that has given their family so much. The video goes on to show just how Bruce intends on giving back. Batman Arkham Knight will be available on the Playstation 4 and Xbox One sometime this year.
Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate
This week Koei Tecmo, released a video that revealed what Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate’s newest character, Mary Rose, was capable of. The very first thing this school girl says in the video is, “Don’t underestimate me just because I’m small.” She then proceeds to destroy all of her opponents with some powerful throws and locks. She may be young, but it looks as if this new character will be both strong and agile.
J-Stars Victory Vs
Bandai Namco released five new videos showing off five different characters and their moves. These characters included Toriko, Yamata Tarou, Joseph Joestar, Kurokami Medaka, and Nueno Meisuke. We already did a detailed look at each character, but as a quick recap; Toriko is quick and has some decent long distance attacks, Yamata Tarou is crazy, Joseph Joestar uses weapons and can heal quickly, Kurokami Medaka can restrict her opponents’ movements, and Nueno Meisuke will drain his opponents’ of their energy. You can see them all in action here.
Gundam Extreme Vs Full Boost
J-Stars Victory Vs isn’t the only anime-based fighter Bandai Namco released videos for; just yesterday the game company released a new video introducing some new DLC for Gundam Extreme Vs Full Boost. The DLC includes three new playable characters that can be purchased for 400 Yen ($4). You can see a more detailed account of the DLC here.
New Monster Hunter 4 commercial
Ok so this one really isn’t a trailer, but it is just too weird not to share. Capcom’s newest commercial for Monster Hunter 4 features the three little pigs sitting around a table playing their 3DSs when all of a sudden the big bad wolf barges in. In this story though, the wolf isn’t there to chomp on some piggies, but rather join them in some monster hunting fun.
