113w ago - Today Ubisoft Associate Producer Eric Damian-Vernet has shared a video trailer and confirmed that Beyond Good & Evil HD hits PSN in May, 2011.
To quote: Beyond Good & Evil HD is coming to the PlayStation Network in May 2011. Fans of the 2003 cult classic will be able to relive the adventures of Jade as she uncovers a planet-wide alien conspiracy that is taking over Hillys.
At its time, Beyond Good & Evil was considered one of the top adventure games on the PlayStation 2, and soon you'll be able to play it in HD on your PS3.
With the HD release of the game, you can expect to see the same type of care Michel Ancel and his team has when they designed the original game. Dive deep into the beautiful world of Hillys as Jade encounters different species of animals and enemies.
Along with the visuals, we have also updated the audio allowing you to experience the 2004 AIAS nominee for Oustanding Achievement in Original Music Composition and Oustanding Achievement in Sound Design. All this combines into the best version of Beyond Good & Evil yet.
Along with releasing an HD version of one of our beloved classics, we are giving away a special present to PlayStation Network members who pick up the game within the first two...
138w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Rey Gutierrez has made available a video today on the re-imaging of Dante in the new Devil May Cry for PS3.
To quote: "I remember calling it Developers May Cry, it looked that good." God of War III's game director Stig Asmussen confesses in the upcoming God of War Directors Live event, when asked about his art direction days on the original God of War.
Devil May Cry; its headliner, Dante; and the entire DMC mythology have sprung installments on multiple consoles, comic books and an anime series. Dante is an iconic figure in the video game world, so imagine the reaction when Lead Producer Alex Jones and Chief Creative Director Tameem Antoniades were tapped to change everything we know about Devil May Cry and start from scratch. The result? DmC.
Clearly, Ninja Theory and Capcom were anticipating a strong reaction and fan skepticism, but after my conversation with the new DmC team, I grew more confident that Dante and the cast of DmC are in good hands.
It's daring, crazy and extremely challenging to change an 11-year-old franchise. But, if Christopher Nolan can do it with Batman Begins,...
Devil May Cry has been reborn as DmC in a soup-to-nuts re-imagining of the classic PS2 and PS3 action series. The results are undeniably striking, and are bound to trigger debate and discussion among series diehards for months to come. Judge for yourself -- take a look at the debut video for DmC below.
In an international twist, British-based Heavenly Sword developer Ninja Theory is co-developing DmC with Capcom's Japanese and US studios.
The game is still shrouded in mystery, with few details relating to the setting (a strange urban environment with City...
