First of all, if you were searching for our September 2020 list and drawing up blanks I apologies as I took a few weeks off from blogging due to a little burnout. Maybe it was faith as the surprise drop of the 3D Super Mario Collection, and the excellent Hades would render it obsolete. Now, we move on to October, which also means just one last month of current-gen gaming before the arrival of the Next-Gen twins. Luckily, there are some great titles slated for release this month to past the time:
This past weekend was the annual hosting of the Tokyo Game Show (albeit an online version), and while it was a little too light on new game announcements for my liking, we did get a surprise announcement of a new CG Resident Evil series coming to Netflix. Titled Resident Evil Infinite Darkness, the show will feature series favourites Leon S Kennedy and Claire Redfield as its lead characters.
We all jumped for joy when news broke that the Bleach anime series would be making a return next year. That same announcement got even sweeter with the news that Tite Kubo’s other manga Burn The Witch, would also be getting an anime adaptation this year. Today, we finally get word on exactly when the witch burning will begin.
In a year that saw the revival of freaking Ren & Stimpy, nothing surprises us anymore. And yet, some minds were blown with the recent announcement that zaney 90s cult classic cartoon Animaniacs, will be rebooted in honour of the show's 27th anniversary. With its November 20 premiere date fast approaching, Hulu (which snagged streaming rights) released a new sneak peek trailer to give fans an idea on the new series' progress.
Nintendo has sneakingly announced Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity out, a new game set 100 years before The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild out of nowhere, and it will be released on Switch on November 20, 2020. Developed by Koei Techmo under the watchful eyes of Nintendo, the game will allow players to learn more about Zelda, the four Champions - Mipha, Revali, Urbosa, and Daruk - the King of Hyrule, and more through "dramatic cutscenes as they try to save the kingdom from Calamity."
It has been in more ways than one a strange year in gaming. None more so than the ongoing game of chicken between Microsoft and Sony to see who would blink first, and reveal the price and release date for their Next-Gen Console. On that note, we can congratulate Sony as Microsoft squealed first, officially announcing the price for both the Xbox Series S and Series X.
