Welcome back to another weekly issue of On The Horizon!
This Tuesday, April 16th, Injustice: Gods Among Us will be released for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii U! Developed by Netherrealm Studios (who brought us Mortal Kombat), Injustice: Gods Among Us is a fighting game with a roster of characters from DC comics such as Superman, Batman and several others. Check out this list of characters and gameplay trailer:
Also coming out on Tuesday, April 16th is the long awaited translation of a previously unreleased game from 1997, Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers for 3DS! A classic Shin Megami Tensei game, Soul Hackers features demon fusion, massive dungeons filled with puzzles and challenges, and a brand new cast of voice talent to help tell the story of a group of hackers that are taking on an evil corporation. Gamer Horizon has a review in progress and it will be published bright and early at 6:00AM PST on April 16th. In the meantime, check out this gameplay trailer:
The last big game for Tuesday, April 16th is Pandora’s Tower for the Wii, an action RPG developed by Ganbarion and Nintendo. Though it was released in Japan in 2011, for a while it seemed like Pandora’s Tower would never be released in English, but we’re getting the game after all courtesy of XSEED Games. The protagonist in Pandora’s Tower has to slay over a dozen monsters and collect their flesh to lift the curse that has a hold over his lover.
Today, Monday April 15th, two games are being released on additional platforms. Painkiller: Hell and Damnation is the remake of the classic action shooter, and is being released for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 (it has been available on PC since October). And the ArcaniA: Game of the Year Edition is finally making its way to PlayStation 3 (it has been on Xbox 360 since August).
Finally, on Sunday April 21st, Lego City Undercover: The Chase Begins will be released for the 3DS. It is a prequel to the Wii U title, Lego City: Undercover, released earlier this year.
This week on Gamer Horizon, Ted will be writing up his impressions of Injustice: Gods Among Us, Ari will have the review for Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers, and Sean is working on a new editorial about the story of Bioshock Infinite. And as always, Ted will be providing a PlayStation Plus update, and we’ll have lots of news to share with you. Should be another fun week!
