The creator of the famous Slender: The Eight Pages, Mark “AgentParsec” Hadley, has come out and announced he has teamed up with indie dev Blue Isle Studios to make a budgeted Slender game.
Series gets a rather typical spinoff announced at Tokyo Game Show. A trailer accompanies the announcement.
“Our U.S office mainly works to efficiently release the Japanese titles that Level-5 has created overseas and they are involved in production and distribution in the overseas territories,” Hino explained.
Speaking at the Tokyo Game Show, Sega have announced a release date for the upcoming Yakuza 5 for Japan, and brought along two exciting trailers.
Capcom has announced downloadable content for Dragon’s Dogma, Dark Arisen, which will be an expansion pack rather than the small usual addon.
The recently Metal Gear Solid: Social Ops title, announced for iOS, has finally received a trailer revealing tactical card-game based gameplay. Accompanying the trailer are a small selection of screenshots and card images.
Details for the upcoming Social Ops are scarce, but the trailer reveals titbits of information. Players will be collecting virtual cards which we see applied in battle against various bosses from the title’s Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker scenarios.
Social Ops allows players to participate in events through-out the Metal Gear saga on their mobile device. The card-battle mechanic reminds me more of the Outer Ops mechanic of Peace Walker rather than the card-battle spinoff Metal Gear Ac!d.
With Outer Ops, players dispatch soldiers to combat against another unit. The feature is simulated entirely, with the only player influence being the formation and choice of units. Decisions were based upon statistical values for each soldier. I suspect this will be how the card-battles are handled in Social Ops, if the trailer is anything to go by.
Tetsuya Mizuguchi, co-founder of Q Entertainment and notable for designing Rez and Child of Eden, is currently no longer developing new titles.
