That new Gauntlet game is coming out on September 3 photo



Hey! Remember how there's a new Gauntlet happening and people were excited for it yet Warner Bros. is barely making a big deal about it? Well yeah it's still happening, set to arrive for just the PC/Steam on September 3.

The online/local four-player classic is up for pre-order, and if you want to "secure" your copy now you will be given extra items and a free comic the day the game is released. The comic is titled Gauntlet: Darkness Calls, and will detail the origins of "Gauntlet's most vile master," Morak.

More interesting to me from this press release was details on WB Games Vault, a program that will see Midway/Warner Bros IP paired with different game developers. For instance, this new Gauntlet is being made by Arrowhead Game Studios, famous for the Magicka series. It's nice to see a studio finally attempting to do something with their old IPs.

Persona 5 is coming to PS4, gets first trailer

Atlus' YouTube has our first look at Persona 5, which appears to have a ruffled brown haired boy protagonist and subways. Not a lot to get excited about aside from the fact that Persona 5 is exciting inherently. Though there was an announcement of a PS4 version of the previously PS3-restricted title. Makes sense. more

Shovel Knight looks great in 16-bit, Aegis Defenders just looks great

Oh my goooddd. How did I miss this until now? It's like a Nausicaa game. Thank you sir Shovel Knight for making a cross over appearance (above) in Aegis Defenders, which is how it came to my attention.  The Kickstarter already passed its initial funding goal and its PS4 stretch goal. Local co-op and a Wii U version are up next. Here's hoping. This looks amazing. more
