We have a new team-up of Sora and the Disney/Pixar gang in Kingdom Hearts III, info on a mobile game delay and more. Here's the Gamegrrl news for the week ending February 2, 2019.
In the game, you’ll be visiting the worlds of Frozen, Pirates of the Caribbean, Tangled, Big Hero 6, and Toy Story, among others. Square Enix has knocked it out of the park here. Let us know which world you’re most excited for.
"Explore the Russian wilderness in vast, non-linear levels and follow a thrilling story-line inspired by the novels of Dmitry Glukhovsky that spans an entire year through spring, summer and autumn to the depths of nuclear winter." The game is coming for Xbox One, PS4, and PC on February 15!
Here is the statement from the release: “In the smart-device business, Mario Kart Tour was scheduled to be released this fiscal year, but in order to improve quality of the application and expand the content offerings after launch, the release date has been moved to summer 2019,” the company says. “As we endeavor to develop future planned applications, we will also focus on continued service operations for applications that have already been released so that consumers can enjoy playing them for a long time.”
Not familiar with the crossover? The blog has you covered. “There have been too many cool Spidey/Fantastic Four moments to count, but one of the most memorable in their illustrious history was in Amazing Spider-Man #258, when Spidey swung by the Fantastic Four’s headquarters for help with the alien symbiote he was wearing as a costume (that’s right, it later became Venom). The Fantastic Four got it off, but then Spidey was left in his underpants (we’d never do something that silly in the game … wait, I’m being told we did). So Spidey borrowed a Fantastic Four costume … but they don’t have masks! So, to conceal Peter Parker’s secret identity, his frenemy, the Human Torch, gave Spidey a grocery bag to wear on his head. As The Thing might say, what a revoltin’ development!
“Another chapter in their shared story came when Spidey actually joined the Fantastic Four, then calling themselves the Future Foundation, and they all wore cool black and white costumes. Hey, Dan wrote many of those issues, and I scripted one or two myself! That suit was awesome looking because – but you don’t want to hear me yap, look for yourself!”
