179w ago - This weekend ConsolePress.com (linked above) and GamingEverything.com have posted up some new scans leaked from the latest Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM) Magazine of the upcoming PS3 and XBox 360 Mortal Kombat 2011 title by Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment.
EGM was able to do an extensive interview with the team behind the new title, and according to the developers the game will return to its "2D roots".
The 3D sidestepping has been removed, as the game is once again restricted to a 2D plane of movement. It was also hinted that it will be the fastest game in the series.
In addition, a new Super Meter was added as shown. It can be charged to 3 levels used to either enhance a special move, break a combo or unleash the new devastating attack called "X-Ray Mode".
During this attack, characters engage in a combo that takes around 40% damage (depending on the character) and can also be chained in another combo. During these devastating attacks, the opponent's internal damage is shown with each character has different organ models.
To quote: "The story is similar to that of Gestalt, but the main character will have to save his little sister affected by an incurable illness named "Black Sentence Plague".
As he will progress in his quest he will find out more about the nature of the world and about the reasons why the demons inhabiting it have began to succumb to madness.
Both Nier Gestalt and Nier RepliCant will be released in 2010, developed by studio Cavia (Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles and Darkside Chronicles, Bullet Witch, Drakengard, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex...) and both will be officially shown at Tokyo Game show, respectively at Microsoft's and Sony's booths.
As a final juicy detail, on September the 18th the first trailer for Nier RepliCant will be aired...
236w ago - Ever since the revealing trailer since October last year, information of Quantum Theory (tentative title) has been kept quiet... until now.
Here is a rough translation of the scans: Quantum Theory is a new action game from Tecmo with over the top battles taken place within a tower which changes it's structures over time.
With the tower shifting (Diabloizes) it's shape over time, it is eroding into the world endangering the people around. Many have tried to invade the tower to stop the erosion, but all have died. Now a man crossing over all the corpses that failed before him, has risen to challenge the tower.
The main character Sid, carrying a machine gun named "Grave Digger", will meet his partner Feleena inside the tower working towards the same goal of stopping the tower. Feleena carries a gun that will turn into a light saber during close combat. Players will need to adapt to the changing environments within the tower and fight accordingly.
Under release info, only a release date of 2010 is given. Categorized under "SF Action" and the genre is "Action/Shooting". It lists that the game will have PlayStation Network support but nothing is said about if it's 1 or multiplayer.
On the 2nd page of the scan it says that Feleena will act on her own, sometimes fighting...
