Gameloft: Modern Combat Versus will be available ‘really soon’

thumbnail

According to the latest press release from Gameloft, the next instalment in its popular Modern Combat shooter franchise – Modern Combat Versus – will be available “really soon”. Unfortunately, ‘really soon’ is a largely subjective term. If you’re waiting in Starbucks, ‘really soon’ means about 30 seconds from now, while if you’re a geologist it means at some point in the next 10,000 years. In the world of mobile gaming, we suspect ‘really soon’ means the next week or two, but don’t hold us to that. Anyway, what’s ...

Phoenix Wright: Spirit of Justice lands on Google Play like a solid gold gavel

thumbnail

Order in the court! Phoenix Wright: Spirit of Justice has landed on Google Play. Unfortunately, you’ll have to earn as much as a barrister to buy it. Objection! Okay, objection sustained. Spirit of Justice costs £18.99, which may be eye-wateringly steep for an Android game but it’s a fair price for a full-length title in the awesome Phoenix Wright series. That sum buys you all five chapters, plus the special episode featuring Larry Butt, and costume add-ons. Otherwise you’re getting everything you’d expect from Capcom’s long-running courtroom sim: melodramatic ...

thumbnail

For what it’s worth, which is pretty much nothing, an analyst has predicted that Animal Crossing will be out on mobile this December. Animal Crossing for mobile has been in the works since last year, when Shigeru Miyamoto crossed his own person Rubicon by announcing several Nintendo IPs for mobile. It has seen delays, however, and at this point nobody really know what’s happening with it. Nobody, that is, except Macquarie Capital Securities analyst David Gibson, who believes Animal Crossing will come to mobile as soon as ...

Terra Battle 2 has just landed on Google Play.

This new Middle Earth: Shadow of War mobile trailer explains the updated Nemesis system

thumbnail

2014’s console and PC game Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor was great, thanks in part to its innovative Nemesis system, which saw you taking on orc commanders who belonged to a military hierarchy. Win and another orc would rise through the ranks to replace them. Lose and they’d grow more powerful. The Nemesis system didn’t have anything other than a cosmetic influence on your overall progress through the game, but it infused the big set-piece battles with extra tension. Guess what. The sequel, Shadow of War, is ...
