Check Out New Footage of ‘Street Fighter IV: Champion Edition’ Being Played with a Gamevice Controller, Game Launching Early July

Check Out New Footage of ‘Street Fighter IV: Champion Edition’ Being Played with a Gamevice Controller, Game Launching Early July

Capcom launched the original Street Fighter IV [$ 4.99] for mobile way back in the March of 2010, and despite being a scaled down version of the full console game it played surprisingly well with its smattering of virtual buttons. A little more than a year later saw the release of Street Fighter IV Volt [$ 4.99], a new version of the game with the massive new feature of online multiplayer as well as a smattering of additional improvements. Street Fighter IV Volt was pretty darn popular with a really active online community, but for some reason all that success didn’t translate into much post-launch support or any more new games, and the Street Fighter IV series on mobile remained dormant for the next several years. Until just under a month ago when Capcom Mobile announced Street Fighter IV: Champion Edition, a revamped version of Volt with long-awaited new features like new characters, widescreen support, higher resolution visuals, and MFi controller support. Then just last week a new trailer was released showcasing the many new characters that are set to arrive in Champion Edition. In regards to MFi support, that new feature is the focus of a new video from Gamevice showcasing Street Fighter IV: Champion Edition being played with a Gamevice controller for the iPhone.

It seems based on that trailer that folks who are able to use a physical controller with Street Fighter IV: Champion Edition are going to have a huge advantage over those who don’t. Or, at least, that’s what Gamevice would like you to think so maybe you’ll buy one of their controllers! I’m only kind of kidding there, but the fact is that Street Fighter was designed with physical controls in mind so of course using physical controllers will be ideal, but we’ve found through previous mobile releases that players can get along pretty dang well with virtual controls. Either way, the Street Fighter mobile games have always been really fun little games to keep on my iPhone whenever the mood to do some mobile brawling strikes, and I’m really looking forward to Street Fighter IV: Champion Edition even if it is just a slightly improved version of a nearly 7 year old game. According to the Capcom Mobile Facebook page, Street Fighter IV: Champion Edition is set to launch in early July, and until then you can find discussion on the game from all the Street Fighter regulars in our forums.

Check Out Some More ‘Silly Walks’ Gameplay Footage

Check Out Some More ‘Silly Walks’ Gameplay Footage

It was just a few days ago that we brought you the news of Silly Walks, an upcoming game from Party Time Monk? er, I mean PART Time Monkey, that has you playing as various types of food come to life who must make their way through gauntlets filled with everyday household items who have also come to life and want to kill you. Yeah, it’s a weird and awesome premise. Anyway, that first trailer was more of an overview of the entire game, but Part Time Monkey has recently posted a more direct gameplay trailer showing what the actual game flow of playing through a level in Silly Walks is like. Check it out.

This is the type of game where the more I see of it, the more excited I get to play it. I also love the quick zoom-in and foreboding tuba that plays when you encounter an enemy object and how elaborate some of the level layouts are. I’m pretty much always a sucker for games that take place in everyday household environments like this. Silly Walks is still in development but it looks as though Part Time Monkey is still taking in some beta testers, so those who are interested should head over to the forum thread to inquire about that and we’ll bring you any more news on the game’s progress as it continues.

Check Out Footage of the ARKit Integration in ‘Pokemon Go’

Check Out Footage of the ARKit Integration in ‘Pokemon Go’

One of the reveals from the WWDC 2017 keynote was Apple’s introduction of ARKit, a toolset for developers that want to implement augmented reality into their games. And Apple got the augmented reality game to add ARKit support for compatible devices, Pokemon Go [Free]. But how is it going to perform? Well, check out some footage from a WWDC session talking about ARKit. You can watch the whole developer-foucsed video through Safari or the WWDC app [Free]. But thankfully one Reddit user has clipped out the key footage of ARKit in Pokemon Go:

It seriously looks so much cooler with the ARKit effects, as you can see the Pokemon as dynamic creatures in the real world, as opposed to the current AR solution. Ironically, this may mean that a game made by a Google-owned company will work better starting on iOS 11 than it does on Android, though Google is doing some AR technology as well. But still, if you’re a Pokemon Go player, the Pokemon capturing experience is about to be so much better.

Here’s the Stunning First Footage From the Mobile Port of ‘GRID Autosport’

Here’s the Stunning First Footage From the Mobile Port of ‘GRID Autosport’

A few weeks ago, the unfortunate news broke that Feral Interactive’s port of the classic Codemasters racing title GRID Autosport had been delayed to Autumn. While this was obviously a disappointing move, the developers asserted their commitment to what will be a major 2017 App Store release, and promised that the delay would mean a more polished and better quality title when the Autumn date eventually rolls around. To satiate excited fans of the series, Feral have today released a glimpse of Alpha footage from GRID Autosport, and all I can really say is wow.

Despite still being a few months off, and not showing any features such as modes or controls within the game, the preview of GRID Autosport looks incredibly well done and a testament to how far the App Store has come since its genesis in 2008. The best compliment I can bestow on GRID Autosport is that it looks almost as good as its console counterpart, and without a side-by-side comparison it’d be difficult to tell them apart. The dynamic lighting is stunning, and while Feral stress this is an alpha build of the game, it looks like their porting skills that were so effective for the Rome: Total War [$ 9.99 (HD)] series are as strong as ever. Apart from the graphical prowess, isn’t too much we can discern from the trailer bar the inclusion of tilt controls and a replay feature, so hopefully over the coming weeks more details drop for the iOS version of GRID Autosport as we get closer to its Autumn release date.

Check Out Some Early Footage of the Paladin Class Coming to ‘Wayward Souls’

Check Out Some Early Footage of the Paladin Class Coming to ‘Wayward Souls’

I’m just going to come out and say it: Wayward Souls [$ 6.99] is my favorite iOS game. Yes, we picked it as our Game of the Year back in 2014, and yes we awarded it 5 stars in our original review, and yes it’s been critically acclaimed by tons and tons of gamers since its release, so maybe that statement isn’t all that surprising. However, there are SO many fantastic games on mobile that it makes it hard to boil it all down to just one favorite, but I think I’ve finally decided that Wayward Souls deserves that honor. I mean, just writing about it or even thinking about it makes me want to instantly start playing, which I will be doing just as soon as I’m done with this post, by the way.

Anyway, Wayward Souls has been updated a ton over the years, and as was hinted at in an update this past December and has been planned for even longer than that by developer Rocketcat Games, one big final update is coming that will add the Paladin class to the game complete with its own separate story campaign and crazy new difficulty levels. This weekend Rocketcat posted some early footage of the Paladin class in action. This first video is a brief run that pretty quickly ends in death, and is accidentally captured at 24fps so it’s a bit choppy (the game itself runs at 60fps, fyi). This second video is a lenghtier run (nearly 10 minutes) that also ultimately ends up in death. Both videos are a joy to watch for Wayward Souls fans anxious for the Paladin update.

Ah, exciting stuff I tell ya. The only problem with getting excited for this new Paladin update is that we aren’t too sure when we’ll get to actually play it. Rocketcat tries to be careful about giving hard dates for stuff as timelines for game development can change on a whim due to all sorts of circumstances. The good news is that Rocketcat making videos of the Paladin in action is a sign that things are moving along quite well, so hopefully that final 10% of polishing up and playtesting won’t take too long and we’ll be able to play as the Paladin ourselves in the near future. There should actually be more Paladin videos coming this week, so keep an eye on Rocketcat’s Youtube channel and once we have a more specific timeline for the release of this update we’ll let you know.

Check Out New Footage of The Long-Awaited ‘Munch Time 2’

Check Out New Footage of The Long-Awaited ‘Munch Time 2’

As Eli said last year, you’d have to be pretty hardcore to remember Munch Time [$ 0.99 / Free / $ 1.99] from back in the day in 2012. But Munch Time 2 has seemed particularly appealing as it takes osme of the machanics like swinging and color-changing and putting them into a Metroidvania-style open world. The game’s progress has been getting periodic updates on our forums, and some new footage. In fact, a Greenlight campaign for Steam has started up, and a new trailer has launched for it:

The game is still being tweaked, but the developers consider it 100% playable, and a mobile beta could happen soon. I’d still be patient, since the game’s been in development for a few years now, but it’d be real cool if this hit sometime this year…

Ironhide Game Studio Releases Beta Footage of Upcoming RTS ‘Iron Marines’, Shooting for Release Mid-2017

Ironhide Game Studio Releases Beta Footage of Upcoming RTS ‘Iron Marines’, Shooting for Release Mid-2017

Just about a year ago, Ironhide Game Studio began teasing a new real-time strategy game called Iron Marines, which looked like an exciting departure from their critically-acclaimed fantasy tower defense series Kingdom Rush. Not a ton of new information about Iron Marines was released in the time since though, and with Ironhide officially teasing a new Kingdom Rush game just last week it left a lot of fans wondering what the heck was up with their upcoming RTS. Well, wonder no more! Today Ironhide has posted some beta footage of Iron Marines on their blog and are asking for feedback on how it’s shaping up. What do you think?

Ironhide goes on in the blog post to say that the team behind Iron Marines had hoped it would have been finished last year, but since game development is a tricky thing that just plain didn’t pan out. However, the recent beta was a success and the team is “now in heavy production to finish the game as fast and good as we can.” They confirm that Iron Marines will be the first game that Ironhide releases this year, and they’re shooting for publishing it “mid year.” Hopefully everything goes according to plan and we’ll all be enjoying some fierce real-time strategy with Iron Marines by this summer.

Here’s the First Teaser Footage of Open World Western Adventure ‘Guns and Spurs’

Here’s the First Teaser Footage of Open World Western Adventure ‘Guns and Spurs’

Last month we showed you the first screens of Guns and Spurs, a Western-themed open world game from solo developer Sakis25 that is actually a remake of a game he created in Game Maker way back in 2010. This new version is being completely rebuilt using Unity, and although the scope seems a bit small due to being a one-man project, it looks like it’s poised to offer some pretty enjoyable cowboy-style fun. One of the activities you’ll be able to partake in in Guns and Spurs is racing your horse, and today the first video from the game gives us a brief look at that racing in action.

While the game looks to have a certain amount of roughness, it’s actually kind of charming and this is a pretty impressive undertaking for a single person. I never played the original Game Maker version, but you can check out what it looked like on the Sakis25 Games blog. The remaster looks leaps and bounds better than the original, and I’m really looking forward to checking it out when it releases at some point early this year. We’ll keep tabs on any new information or videos that come for Guns and Spurs, and you can keep tabs on the development yourself by checking out the game’s forum thread.

Footage Emerges of ‘Torchlight Mobile’ to Prove It Still Exists…but Nothing Much Has Changed

Footage Emerges of ‘Torchlight Mobile’ to Prove It Still Exists…but Nothing Much Has Changed

Torchlight Mobile drew a lot of excitement when it was first announced in June of last year, and deservedly so. Torchlight II was an absolutely essential dungeon crawling action RPG on PC that managed to stand up to the genre behemoth that is Diablo 3, and as a result, the Torchlight series has attracted many devout fans. A portable, mobile adaptation on iOS was consequently big news, however subsequent previews at E3 and TGS lessened such expectations, as despite some beautiful graphics, Torchlight Mobile was riddled with free-to-play gimmicks, and ideas that were not fully fleshed out. A year later, with virtually no new information on the iPhone iteration, Torchlight Mobile was shown at this year’s Tokyo Game Show?and nothing much has changed. But hey, Torchlight Mobile still exists, and will hopefully be released in the near future on the App Store, so there’s still time to see a more complete version that is worthy of the Torchlight moniker.

In case you’ve missed our previous coverage on Torchlight Mobile, I’d recommend giving Jared’s E3 2015 write-up a read, as not much appears to be different from the build he tried out last year. Apart from some minor UI graphical alterations, the much maligned free-to-play aspects appear to remain, including the energy meter and the abundance of currencies that feature within Torchlight Mobile. Regardless of these hindrances that may put off some gamers, Torchlight Mobile looks beautiful in motion, and for any fans of the hack and slash genre, the core Torchlight gameplay looks to still be present. With no further details on a release date, hopefully we hear about when the mobile iteration will drop onto the App Store sooner rather than later, as it will be interesting to see how the years of development have affected and altered the game – and don’t forget to share your impressions on our forum thread.
