Local release titles for Vita revealed

With the PlayStation Vita being released on the 22nd of February on our sunny shores, local game distributor Megarom Interactive has released the list of titles it will have available on release.

Usually when a new console is released, the amount of games available to selection from can be disappointing, but it would appear as if the Vita has laid enough suppressive fire for this not to rear its ugly head.

Darksiders 2 confirmed for June

The forthcoming Darksiders sequel was confirmed this week to be on coarse for a June release, at least on the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3. According to Joystiq, the Wii U version was slated for a release closer towards the end of the year.

Darksiders 2 will feature another Horseman of the Apocalypse, Death, who is apparently far more fluid in his movements, as well as lethally quick and acrobatic in combat than the first game’s protagonist, War. Whereas the first game was set largely on a decimated earth, the developers have hinted that Death would be visiting far more otherworldly locations in the second title.

Additionally, players can look forward to some interesting weapons, with apparently Death being able to complement his scythe with whatever happens to be at his disposal.

Mega Man and Pac-Man: fight!
Fans of the Street Fighter X Tekken have a lot to rejoice about. Not only has Capcom announced that the title has gone gold (meaning production is now complete), but it also posted a picture hinting to the fact that Bison will be making an appearance in the game.
This comes after revealing that Capcom’s Mega Man (albeit the chubby one featured on the original Mega Man 1 box art) and Namco’s Pac-Man (riding on top of Mokujin) will be playable characters. Unfortunately this is only for the PS3 and PS Vita versions.
Check the video to see how these two match up.
 Only the dead fight fair
Lots of killing, loads of high tech weaponry, stealth, headshots and a voice-over sounding just like George Clooney – that is the new single player trailer for Ghost Recon Future Soldier. It’s the fourth appearance for Tom Clancy’s Ghosts, this time taking on ultra-nationalist bad-guys that have sunk their rotten filthy teeth into Russia. The Xbox 360 and PS3 versions should be out in May, with PC to follow.
