1) Announcements Galore!!
This week we have had some awesome announcements from Deus Ex: Mankind Divided being announced, the next Call of Duty being Black Ops 3 and also that Lego and TT Games are joining in with the interactive toy market with Lego Dimensions. But these were not the only announced games this week.
First of all we head back to another Activision game that hasn’t been announced but more leaked by an unexpected source. There is a new Tony Hawks game coming titled ‘Tony Hawks 5’ a working title, it was leaked by a caterer for an event for the game. chef Joe Youkhan posted a photo on Instagram and Facebook which shown him from a brand summit he was catering, which shows the working title on a presentation screen. Both tony Hawk and the game maker confirmed last year that they are working on a new skateboarding game for consoles and mobile for 2015.
Secondly, Level-5 have announced that both Professor Layton and Fantasy Life next games will be coming to iOS and Android devices. Both Layton 7 and Fantasy Life 2 will both be released this summer in Japan. This might be troublesome for Nintendo as Level-5 games are usually a guaranteed hit for the 3DS, it looks like that Layton 7, which was previously slated for the 3DS, might not be going to the handheld as there is no mention of it on the game’s official site.
UK GAME CHARTS
EA’s Battlefield Hardline claims a 4th consecutive crown as it stays just ahead of FIFA 15. With little in the way of new releases familiar faces jostle for position in the Top 10 this week. Grand Theft Auto V is down a place to No3 but remains comfortably ahead of Ubisoft’s Far Cry 4. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is up one place to No5 pushing PS4 exclusive Bloodborne down to No6. Both Forza Horizon 2 at No7 and Halo: The Master Chief Collection at No 9 climb into the Top 10 boosted by strong sales of their respective Xbox One Hardware bundles. Take2’s Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is sandwiched between the two at No8 in its third week. Minecraft: Xbox Edition is also back in the Top 10 after a one week absence. PQube’s motorbike racer Ride is boosted by the addition of Xbox One and Xbox 360 versions propelling the title 31 places to No18 following its release at the end of March.
