Details Revealed on Mysticons Graphic Novel series

1 Mar

Yes, watching Mysticons is a guilty pleasure for us here at Otakunoculture. The series is very enjoyable to watch and the music is far catchier than those Sailor Moon openings we saw decades prior.

Last year, on May 2017, Dark Horse and Corus Entertainment’s Nelvana announced a publishing agreement to produce a series of graphic novels based on their animated action series, Mysticons. Today, the partners are excited to reveal details from the upcoming graphic novel series! [and perhaps with further details at Emerald City Comic Con, which started today. -Ed]

Dark Horse’s Spell on Wheels creative team, writer Kate Leth (Patsy Walker aka Hellcat!), artist Megan Levens (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), and colorist Marissa Louise (Wonder Woman Annual), joins forces once again to bring more empowering female characters to life!

Everybody can be Kung-Fu Fighting with the LEGO Ninjago Movie Video Game

22 Sep

Arriving at the same time as the movie, The LEGO® Ninjago Movie Video Game is now available in the Americas for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch™ and Steam. Developed by TT Games and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, this product allows players to extend the non-stop action and humour of the new big-screen animated adventure. Players can battle their way through waves of enemies with honour and skill as their favourite Ninjago heroes – Lloyd, Nya, Jay, Kai, Cole, Zane and Master Wu – to defend Ninjago Island from Lord Garmadon and his Shark Army.

With new, powerful combat moves, players can jump into the action with adrenaline pumping fighting sequences that let them jump higher, kick harder, swing further and defy gravity to conquer their enemies. Players can master the art of Ninja-gility by running on walls, high-jumping and battling foes of NINJAGO to rank up and upgrade the ninja’s combat skills, and traverse across Ninjago Island fluidly with parkour-like moves. The new combat moves include Rushing Boar, a dash attack to bridge the gap between characters, Floating Butterfly, a jump lunge attack that allows the ninja to leap and attack from above, Swooping Hawk, a jump slam attack, and Stinging Bee, a flurry of very fast strikes.

Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms Videogame Teaser Trailer & Art Updates

When considering I have been a playing a lot of Codename Entertainment‘s Crusaders of the Lost Idols lately, the thought of how this fantasy themed side-scroller can become more challenging crossed my mind. The game play is simple: kill monsters for experience points to level up the characters and buy better equipment so they can walk through a dungeon unscathed. The harder part is in how to arrange the party of warriors so the team can dole out the most damage.

I am definitely curious in looking at this Victoria, BC based company’s next game, Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms. Will it be the same game, or be better? Crusaders on Steam is in beta for a long time, and I suspect that’s because the producers have been testing this version out for some time, before deciding to finally wrap it around a franchise property for wider appeal. This fantasy realm developed by Ed Greenwood is beloved amongst role playing gamers for its rich world, and to see it brought to life (again) in a video game is exciting.
