I love lazy Sundays, and if you’re anything like me, you spend most of your day sleeping, napping, or just dozing off to some tune. This of course means that you’re behind everything that’s going on in the game world, so now you’ve got a lot to do. Well, don’t worry about that, because we’ve got this handy news digest for you. Today, we find out that Eidos Montreal wants to pick up where Deus Ex left off, Fatal Fury is returning after a 20-year hiatus, and Bandai Namco may just be making Tekken 8. There’s more where this came from, so read on for the rest.
Deus Ex developers reportedly want to return to the series
Hopes of getting another Deus Ex game largely disappeared when Eidos Montreal, the studio behind the series, was sold by Square Enix, but the developer clearly wants to pick up where it left off. The news came from industry watcher Jeff Grubb, who noted that “the rumble I heard was that the studio wanted to be in Deus Ex right away.” Grubb went on to describe “They want to go back to that state. They want a challenge. They want to do Things that Cyberpunk 2077 can’t do, that sort of thing. That’s the word. We’ll see if that happens. It’s too early, like what that becomes. Started under Square Enix, right?” Another entry in the Deus Ex franchise that I would personally love.
Crisis Core Reunion isn’t just a remake, but ‘not a complete remake’ says creative producer
According to creative producer Tetsuya Nomura, the upcoming Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core Reunion is not just a remake, nor is it a full remake. What does that mean? Well, frankly, I don’t know, but Nomura has something to say on this topic. “The graphics have been refreshed, the models have been remade from scratch, many of the original subtitled scenes are now dubbed, and the combat system has been updated,” he said. “We’re still not sure of the term that better describes the game, which is why we use ‘reunion.’ It’s really complicated because it’s not just a remake, but it’s not a full remake at the same time.”
EVE: Valkyrie server shutdown also removes single player campaign
The live service game EVE: Valkyrie is really dead now. The servers are completely offline and even single player content cannot be accessed. I guess this is life. “We’re incredibly proud of what we’ve accomplished with EVE: Valkyrie and its Warzone expansion, and would like to express our deep gratitude to all players for their support throughout the life of the game,” said CCP, the developer behind the game. a move. “It’s an honor to be part of such a dedicated community.”
Deadly Fury series returns after 20-year hiatus
The classic fighting game franchise, Deadly Fury, has remained largely untouched since its latest entry in the series, Mark of the Wolf, came out in 1999. However, as SNK announced at its latest EVO in Las Vegas, Nevada, we can expect something big to come in the near future. What exactly that means remains to be seen, but another Fatal Fury is certain anyway. “Legends never die,” SNK commented. “After more than 20 years, Fatal Fury/Garou is back! Finally, the long-awaited sequel has the green light!” Get ready for something that rhymes with “tumble.”
Tekken 8 teased at EVO 2022
Bandai Namco recently teased what could be another entry in the Tekken series. The news comes from the latest EVO, during which the publisher screened a short trailer that begins with a shot of Kazuya taking Heihachi to the edge of a cliff, before cutting into a close-up of Mishima and the words “get ready.” It all points to something big brewing, but in a typical trailer, we don’t know exactly what it is yet. Will this be Tekken 8? The only thing I can be sure of is that time will tell.
