Developer Cliff Bleszinski left Epic Games after 20 years, and he's gearing up to release his first game with his new team, Boss Key Productions. Launching in 2016, LawBreakers is a free-to-play arena shooter on PC. The game has a variety of character classes with their own strengths, and Boss Key recently kicked off a video series called Killer Verticality to familiarize players with the game's playable characters. The newest video in the series is out, and this time the star is The Vanguard—a fighter that's all about using speed and height advantages to get the job done.

Last week Playtonic Games revealed a massive new look at Yooka-Laylee, an upcoming 3D platformer that aims to modernize the magic gamers of the 90s saw in Rareware games like Donkey Kong Country and Banjo-Kazooie. Not only did we learn about the game's story, but we got a slew of new promotional images and details about its "toybox" build coming in July.

This was one of the talking points on this week's episode of Nintendo Week, our Nintendo-themed podcast here at Gamnesia. Check out the discussion video after the jump for our full thoughts, or keep reading inside for a brief, brief summary.

Kickstarter project Mighty No. 9 generated an incredible amount of hype (and funding) three years ago, but a long wait made longer by multiple delays (when the base game was said to be complete over a year ago) has left a bad taste in the mouth of fans and backers. Unfortunately, faith in the game waned even further when publisher Deep Silver released a new trailer full of cheesy dialogue, bad jokes, and unconvincing explosions.

It looks like potential customers aren't the only ones disappointed with the new trailer, as Inti Creates CEO Takuya Aizu has taken to Twitter to criticize it. Inti Creates co-developed the game with Comcept (director Keiji Inafune's team), but Deep Silver is publishing, and that apparently includes handling the trailers. After watching the trailer, Aizu tweeted out that it was "crappy" and "unforgivable," specifically calling out Deep Silver. Hopefully this means that the trailer isn't representative of the spirit of the actual game.

Before Yooka-Laylee gets released this October, EDGE was able to get the highly-anticipated platformer featured in their magazine. In the article, EDGE describes Yooka-Laylee as "almost unrecognizable from the footage that convinced so many to part with their money." While the two main characters remain the same, the world is "significantly more substantial than we'd anticipated, with a scale and a level of detail belying the size of the team making it." Fans will be happy to learn that Yooka-Laylee will have many nods from previous classic N64 platformers such as Banjo-Kazooie.

Last week, Playtonic Games gave us a ton of new details concerning their upcoming title, Yooka-Laylee, revealing the game's main storyline and a number of new characters involved with it. Not content to stay quiet for long, the team has once again emerged with new images that show off two of those characters, the traitorous Dr. Quack and the genius Dr. Puzz, in full.

Earlier this week, we heard that the highly anticipated game No Man's Sky might have been delayed. GameStop employees had been reportedly asked to cover the game's release date on promotional material with a sign that reads "coming soon." Today, Sean Murray of Hello Games officially announced that No Man's Sky will now be releasing on August 9th in North America, August 10th in England, and August 12th in the UK.

The not-so-ordinary marketing campaign for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided has now moved into live-action trailers, it seems. However, whereas most live-action trailers are just meant as a cool thing to ogle until a gameplay video comes out, this one, dubbed "The Mechanical Apartheid," actually manages to tell a fairly compelling tale of love and segregation. The video opens up on the evolving world, where augmented and normal folks live together harmoniously.

During Ubisoft's press conference at last year's E3, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands was revealed to the public, promising the largest open world that Ubisoft has ever created. Earlier today, Ubisoft released a brand new trailer for Ghost Recon: Wildlands that showcases the game's open world and gameplay. In Wildlands, you play as a Ghost who is sent on missions to break up cartels and save the people from Santa Blanca's nefarious leader.

Yesterday, publisher Deep Silver released a new "Masterclass" trailer for upcoming Mega Man spiritual successor Mighty No. 9. The trailer, which had a campy 1990s feel to it and featured jokes like "crying like an anime fan on prom night," has been heavily criticized since its release, and currently has over 8 dislikes for every like on YouTube.

In almost no time at all, James Rolfe, better known as the Angry Video Game Nerd, has responded with a parody trailer (via ScrewAttack's YouTube channel) for his game AVGN II: ASSimilation. The new "MasterASS" trailer highlights some of the cool features and weapons of the game while not-so-subtly mocking Mighty No. 9's marketing. You can check out the trailer by clicking below, and you can currently pick the game up for 20% off by clicking here.

For those agents who have already completed their assignments in Paris and Sapienza, you're about to get a dossier for Morrocco. Hitman's third episode, set in Marrakesh, will launch in a few days on May 31st. Marrakesh was designed to be full of life, while giving agents a wide variety of things to do. IO Interactive promises that both targets in the story mission will be challenging to reach (one is in the Swedish Consulate), though will have some special moments attached to them. In addition to the story mission, Marrakesh will also be available for player-made Contracts, Escalation Contracts, and Elusive Targets.

Yesterday, Kotaku and Polygon dropped a bombshell by reporting that Microsoft will unveil two new versions of Xbox One at E3. According to their sources, Microsoft will unveil a smaller, cheaper version of the current Xbox One, as well as a new model that's packing four times as much power. This is all said to be part of Microsoft's plans to converge Xbox One and Windows, essentially treating them as a single platform in the future.

As a big step in this plan, Kotaku reports that Microsoft is planning to release future games on both Xbox One and PC, including their flagship Halo titles. Microsoft has been slowly releasing some Xbox One titles on Windows 10, and it looks like they plan to ramp this up substantially in the future, bringing even their most important Xbox exclusive titles to PC.

A couple of months ago, we learned that Hello Games' anticipated open-world title No Man's Sky would release on PlayStation 4 and PC on June 21st; however, it seems like that may no longer be the case. According to sources close to Kotaku, No Man's Sky has been delayed from its initial release date and won't release until July or August at the earliest, but no concrete release window or date was given. One of these sources, a GameStop employee, stated that the chain's stores were told to cover up the release date on promotional materials with a "Coming Soon" label. He even provided a photo of one such material, which you can check out after the jump.

Mirror's Edge Catalyst is about to be released in two weeks, and EA decided to ride that wave of hype by announcing a Mirror's Edge TV series. President of Endemol Shine Studios Sharon Hall helped announce the news today and expressed her excitement for the upcoming show. Endemol Shine Studios worked on a number of television series, including Hell on Wheels, Big Brother, The Biggest Loser, and MasterChef.
