Update: Capcom has now officially confirmed the game's existence, providing a new trailer and screenshots for the game. It will launch in the west on December 12th, for the price of $20.

Original: Just yesterday we heard rumors of an Okami HD coming to current gen platforms (minus the Switch), and today we have confirmation. As is often the case, the newest issue of Japan's premiere gaming magazine, Weekly Famitsu, has leaked early, and in it Capcom announces that Okami HD is on its way to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC later this year, at least in Japan.

Okami is a classic from the days of the PlayStation 2, and later the Wii and PS3, and there's a chance the adventures of the lupine sun god Amaterasu are on their way to a new generation of gamers! Every now and then, rating boards list a game that hasn't been announced yet, and a few days ago the Korean Ratings Board did just that for an Okami HD, listing it for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

The Uncharted franchise is known for being one of the most consistent high-quality series in video games. Four installments featuring Nathan Drake—the Indiana Jones of video games and then some—have toured gamers through a fictional version of our world filled to the brim with lost civilizations to find, armies of terrorists to fight, and a wonderful mixture of satisfying gameplay and story beats to experience.

With Uncharted: The Lost Legacy having been upgraded from the campaign DLC of Uncharted 4: A Thief's End to a standalone, budget title, does it bring all the fun and catharsis gamers have come to expect from Naughty Dog's renowned action series? Head inside the full review to find out!

In the final expansion to Yacht Club Games' critically acclaimed Shovel Knight, players will finally step into the shoes of King Knight as he embarks on a quest to be a mighty king (so enemies beware!) in King of Cards.

Pridemoor has yet to see a king with quite the knack for flair, but the Gilded Goon aspires to be the main event like no king was before (brushing up on looking down while building up his score) in this new prequel story—and this is a facet of King Knight's character that is reflected quite clearly and charmingly in his gameplay.

Invading dragons have razed the Earth, human civilization has collapsed, and survivors have taken to living out the remainder of their days in capsules in outer space. This is the bleak scenario painted by Cleaversoft for their upcoming, procedurally-generated runner game EarthNight, where you take on the role of either 14-year-old high schooler Sydney or freelance photographer Stanley to scavenge for resources, collect power-ups, and slay dragons.

After a 2013 pilot episode, a mobile game, and several shorts over the past few years, August saw the long-awaited premiere of Ian James-Quartey's superhero comedy series OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes on Cartoon Network. Unlike other CN programs that wound up receiving video game adaptations later on in their run, such as Steven Universe with Attack the Light, OK K.O.! is unique in that it is debuting both a show and a tie-in video game at relatively the same time.

The show itself is inspired by a number of all-star classics and is filled to the brim with a number of tongue-in-cheek references, so it would only make sense for there to be a game for it as well. OK K.O.! Let's Play Heroes, developed by Capybara Games, was first revealed back at E3 2017, and a demo became playable for attendees at PAX West this year.

Though I didn't get my start until Mega Man 9, the classic Mega Man games hold a special place in my heart. Their challenging gameplay, killer soundtracks, and retro graphics keep me coming back for more all the time. While I've spent a significant amount of time with the first six games (especially Mega Man 2), I never had the opportunity to play Mega Man 7 and Mega Man 8. Thankfully, earlier this month, Capcom released Mega Man Legacy Collection 2, allowing me to complete my goal of finishing all of the classic Mega Man games—well, almost.

It seems like it's been forever since we heard anything significant about Super Meat Boy Forever, but Team Meat finally pulled through for us. Super Meat Boy Forever is the official sequel to the adorable, tough-as-nails platformer Super Meat Boy. In Forever, Dr. Fetus returns and kidnaps Nugget, the child of Meat Boy and Bandage Girl. You are thus tasked with navigating your way through "dynamically constructed" gauntlets in order to get your child back.

Super Meat Boy Forever is scheduled for release sometime before summer of next year for Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Steam, and mobile devices. Head inside to find out more about what you can expect from this new entry, as well as checking out the adorable new trailer!

Nintendo hosted a Nindie showcase earlier this afternoon, and one of the coolest things shown off was the first gameplay footage of Shovel Knight's final DLC campaign. Entitled King of Cards, this campaign sees you playing as King Knight as he travels the realms with the goal of defeating the Three Kings. King of Cards features thirty brand new courses across four worlds, and when you aren't bashing your way to victory, you can even enjoy a card game with your future subjects.

We'd be surprised if South Park: The Fractured But Whole didn't get an ESRB M for Mature rating. Its name alone is a joke about buttholes, and it's a South Park game. It's a no-brainer, and it's certainly not news. However, the way they described the reasoning behind the rating is worth sharing. With extreme detail, the rating describes just how explicit and crazy this game can get.

Game companies, like many other businesses, don't like it when people try to lay claim to their ideas and products. They don't see value in allowing other people to offer their products for free through emulation, they aren't the biggest fans of cheap knockoff versions of their intellectual property, and they certainly have no desire to be one-upped by their own fans. As you've heard before in cynical comment sections and YouTube videos alike, these corporations are not your friends. You have no connection with these people and they are only after your money. If you make a fan project and they don't want it to exist, there's nothing stopping them from shutting that shit down. It's their IP to create and use. Not yours. This is the approach Nintendo has taken when it comes to anything that fans have created around their IP.

But this isn't the only way, as Sega has proven by doing things differently. When fan projects popped up around the Sonic franchise, rather than shutting those people down, Sega chose to hire those people and on-board them for their talent and passion for the franchise. With Sonic Mania, Sega hired a small army of passionate fans, and those very fans' efforts created the most widely acclaimed Sonic game in nearly a decade. No threats, no cease and desist letters, just results and progress. So why does Sega do what Nintendon't when it comes to fan support?

One of the biggest stories of E3 2015 was the announcement of Shenmue III, a very long awaited sequel to the massively influential sandbox action games from the Dreamcast era. Aside from hearing about its record smashing success on Kickstarter, we haven't heard anything about it in the two years since its announcement. This week, we finally get to see what the game looks like in a brand new trailer!

Attack on Titan is easily one of the biggest anime of the last decade. The story of teenagers in the military with Spiderman-like weapons fighting off hungry, naked giants has been such a hit that it's spawned quite a few video games in its name. While most of them were on the Nintendo 3DS, it had one major title that reached the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows platforms. Just this week, Koei Tecmo announced a sequel to that Attack on Titan game with a new trailer.

Collector's Editions in general have been running rampant for the past few years. Some recent games have gone as far as having thirty different collector's editions, and some have had some ridiculous price tags attached to them. Now, ten years since its launch, the absolutely legendary BioShock is getting a brand new collectors edition including statues of the iconic Big Daddy and Little Sister.
