Destiny's new expansion, The Taken King, is set to be released on September 15. It comes with the usual things expansions have to offer: new missions, new weapons, and it even raises the level cap. There is also a new raid to go with it: "The King's Fall." Raids are complicated team-based missions which require a great deal of coordination and planning. However, it appears that this raid does not get released at the same time as the other content. Bungie hasn't revealed when the raid will be released, nor did they give a reason for the delay, so the only thing players can do is wait for it and level up to prepare.

While people in North America have been able to enjoy The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth on their Nintendo platforms for a little while, us Europeans were still left to wait.

The long-awaited date has arrived, and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain (likely series creator Hideo Kojima's last entry) has released. Last week, Kojima said that he was working with Geoff Keighley and Greg Miller on a commemoration video to launch alongside the game. That video released today, and it's quite an emotional send-off for Kojima.

Members of Kojima's staff (along with Keighley and Miller) share their thoughts and memories from the franchise in a series of exit interviews. Afterwards, Kojima visits a family that lost a son to cancer. The son, Sean Paul Gillespie, was a passionate fan of Metal Gear, and an email he wrote to Kojima and his staff gave them inspiration during their toughest hour. You can watch the touching video, dedicated to Sean, by clicking below.

EA has just announced that an online beta for the upcoming game Star Wars Battlefront will be coming early next month.

The Star Wars Battlefront beta will be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Origin on PC in early October.

The beta will also include a brand new game mode called Drop Zone, which EA will share more details about in the coming weeks. Head inside for more.

It's been a long time since we've been given a new Star Fox game (outside of the 3DS remake of Star Fox 64 in 2011), but Nintendo is reviving the franchise with Star Fox Zero. The upcoming Wii U game will be the first HD entry in the franchise, but reactions to the game's graphics have been mixed early on. Nintendo has released a new batch of screenshots that showcase varied environments, so you can check them out and judge for yourself by clicking below.

For those of you who prefer to buy digital games, Nintendo has now launched a digital shop on Amazon. The shop will have digital Wii U, 3DS, Wii, and Virtual Console games available to buy. Once you make your purchase on Amazon, you will log in to your Nintendo Network account, then be able to download it directly onto your console. All recent Nintendo games are available on the shop, including: Splatoon, Super Smash Bros., Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, and you can also pre-order Super Mario Maker. At the moment the prices on the Amazon shop are the same as the eShop, but the games may be included in Amazon sales in the future.

Both Sony and Microsoft have had a very strong start to the young generation, with PlayStation 4 smashing sales records and quickly eclipsing 25 million global sales, and Xbox One outpacing its predecessor. By the NPD Group's count, combined sales of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are 50% higher than their predecessors in the US. This boost in early momentum has been especially beneficial for GameStop. During a recent conference call, COO Tony Bartel reported that PlayStation 4 sales are triple those of PlayStation 3 after 22 months, and Xbox One sales are nearly double those of Xbox 360.

A few days ago, we learned that Yacht Club Games would be releasing a stand-alone Shovel Knight Amiibo and that it would be produced at a factory that specializes in producing NFC toys. Now, Yacht Club has shared more details on the production and distribution of the figure. According to studio head Sean Velasco, Yacht Club is responsible for all of the development decisions for the Amiibo, not Nintendo; Nintendo is licensing the Amiibo technology, but they are not producing the figure. He also stated that the figure will be manufactured in the same factory that produces the Disney Infinity figures.

It's become commonplace for developers to release console bundles that include a digital download code for a free game, but GameStop would like to change this. The popular video game retailer opted not to sell the Madden NFL 16 bundle with a digital code, instead offering a free physical copy of the game to customers who purchased a PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, and this practice could continue.

During a recent conference call for quarter two, GameStop Chief Operating Officer Tony Bartel announced that they are working with Sony and Microsoft in particular to promote bundle deals that include physical games rather than digital ones. This is beneficial to GameStop (and customers as well), as a large portion of their business is used game sales.

Yesterday, the news broke that Deus Ex: Mankind Divided would be employing a tiered pre-order scheme in which consumers are able to select the pre-order bonuses they want, depending on what tier they’re paying for. Furthermore, it was also announced that the more people pre-order the game, the more tiers are unlocked, Kickstarter style. The announcement was met with near-universal contempt and has re-awoken the discussion of pre-order habits.

With that in mind, we want to know: how often do you pre-order your games?

There's been lots of Resident Evil news lately, including the announcement of a Resident Evil 2 remake and a bundle featuring Resident Evil HD Remaster and Resident Evil 0 HD, but that's not all Capcom has to announce. A new trailer for Resident Evil 0 HD has been released, showcasing a new game mode that lets you play as series villain Albert Wesker! You can check it out by clicking below.

Speaking to Game Informer, Yacht Club Games' Sean Velasco discussed the various stages of development behind the Shovel Knight Amiibo. At one point Yacht Club was juggling various concepts for the Amiibo's in-game functionality, including one idea that the legendary Shigeru Miyamoto was not too fond of. “We went over the entire range of possibilities of what we could do," recalled Velasco. "And what was going too far, what wasn’t going far enough, what does the Amiibo do, how does it work together...I heard that Mr. Miyamoto read one of my pitch documents and said, ‘No’ and that’s like the greatest honor of my life.”

Earlier this year, Capcom released Resident Evil HD Remaster, and they're following it up with Resident Evil 0 HD next year. If you're looking to pick up both, you can do so with one purchase. Capcom has just announced the Resident Evil Origins Collection, set to launch on January 19th for $39.99. This bundle includes physical versions of both games, making it the only way to pick up a physical copy of Resident Evil 0 HD. You can check out the trailer by clicking below!

While fans of the Ace Attorney franchise are patiently waiting to hear any news on a localization of The Great Ace Attorney (hurry up, Capcom!), Famitsu gave us a big surprise today by teasing the next game in the main series, Ace Attorney 6!

The project is being spearheaded by series veterans Motohide Eshiro and Takeshi Yamazaki, as the game's producer and director, respectively, and is being developed for the 3DS. What's even more surprising is that the game is going to be playable at the Tokyo Game Show later this month! Also, Western fans can already put aside localization worries, as Capcom confirmed a Western release, saying, "Ace Attorney 6 will be coming to the west. We’ll have more information on the Western release soon.”

It's certainly a great day to be an Ace Attorney fan!

The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes will mark a return to the style of co-op dungeon crawling and puzzle solving seen in the Four Swords games, and its October 23 release date is fast approaching. To tide you over until then, though, we've gotten several new screenshots, which show off a new ice cavern area and its boss.

You can check them out after the jump.
