Deck13 Interactive, CI Games , & Bandai Namco Games have revealed a limited edition release for the upcoming hack & slash game, Lords of the Fallen. The limited edition will come with the game, a soundtrack, and two DLC packs (The Monk’s Decipher DLC & the Demonic Weapons Pack DLC). The Demonic Weapons Pack DLC includes three weapons, Margyr (daggers), Thehk (hammer), & Ihir (sword).

EA brings us more bad news with yet another delay. But at least this one isn’t pushed back to 2015. This time, it’s BioWare’s Dragon Age: Inquisition. The next entry in the Dragon Age series will be getting a delay of approximately six weeks. The game was originally scheduled for release on October 7th, but is now scheduled for November 18th in North America & November 21st in Europe. This information comes from the official site and Mark Darrah, Executive Producer of Dragon Age: Inquisition. He didn’t go into too much detail about why the game was being delayed other than to say that the team needs time to polish the game. He also said that they wanted to “strengthen the emotional impact of the Hero’s choices.”
And yet another title gets delayed until 2015. EA has officially announced via The Battlefield Blog that Battlefield Hardline has been delayed until early 2015. Their reasoning? They want to work more on the multiplayer, single player, and making sure the launch process goes smoothly. Karl Magnus Troedsson, DICE VP & Group GM, describes these things as: Multiplayer Innovation, Single Player Story Depth, & Stability. Basically, he said that the team were taking player feedback received during the beta and wanted to use that to improve the game and because of this the team needs more time.
Koei Tecmo has revealed details about new characters in Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate. Sophitia Alexandra is seeking to rid the world an evil sword known as the Soul Edge. She is tasked with this quest by the god of fire, Hephaestus. Her daughter winds up kidnapped and instead of destroying the sword, she is made to defend it. She enters the world of Orochi through a rift in space-time on her way back home.
Sterkenburg Cranach served as a knight in the employ of the Kingdom of Arland. He is searching for the former king and seeks to defend his chivalrous side. Like Sophitia, Sterkenburg is drawn into Orochi via a space-time rift. This happens when he is on his way back to Arland and bringing Princess Meruru back to Arls.
Nezha hails from an area known as the Mystic Realm. He is part of the Mystic Army as an officer, but wants to test himself in battle. He utilizes a Fire Spear in combat.
Tamamo is another mystic. She hates humans and loves chaos and negative occurances. She wields a scroll that can cause havoc for humans and has seemingly allied with Da Ji.
Yinglong is another officer in the Mystic Realm, like Nezha. He hails from the ancient era of the Mystic Realm. He was once allied with Fu Xi. He is well respected by others and an inspirational character. He follows through on his principles and takes people at their word.

Comcept has announced another round of crowdfunding for Mighty No. 9 that will go towards adding bonus content into the game. The first stretch goal listed is to raise $100,000 to add full English voices to the game. Other stretch goals will be revealed at a later date. Keiji Inafune has stressed that any additional money raised will not go towards development of the main but to add in only bonus content. The second round of crowdfunding is going through the official site for the game and is being processed through Paypal. If you contribute, you can pre-order the game or if you pay a bit more, you can pre-order the game and get extras like a digital soundtrack, manual, art book, and strategy guide. This latter tier contributes towards the stretch goal. Pre-orders only (with no extras) do not contribute to the stretch goal.
They’ve also announced a new animated series that will hopefully be coming to TVs in the near future. Digital Frontier is helping with this project and they released the teaser video seen below.
