  5. The August issue of Shogakukan's Monthly Flowers magazine revealed on June 28 that Yumi Tamura's Do not say mystery (Mystery to Iu Nakare) manga will go on hiatus for three months, and will return in the magazine's November issue on September 28. The manga follows mystery-solving college student Totonō Kunō. At the beginning of the story, the police bring him in for questioning on suspicion of the murder of his classmate. Tamura published a one-shot for the manga in Monthly Flowers in November 2016, before launching a full serialization of the manga in the magazine a year later in November 2017. Shogakukan published the manga's sixth compiled book volume on February 10, and will publish the seventh volume on September 10. Kodansha awarded the manga in its 44th annual Manga Awards in April. The manga was also nominated for the 13th Manga Taisho Awards in January. Tamura launched the 35-volume 7SEEDS series in 2001 in Bessatsu Shōjo Comic magazine, before eventually moving it to Monthly Flowers. The manga ended in July 2017. The manga won the Shōjo Category of the 52nd Annual Shogakukan Manga Awards in 2007. The manga inspired two anime series that premiered on Netflix in June 2019 and on March 26. Tamura's 27-volume Basara manga ran in Bessatsu Shōjo Comic from 1990-1998. Viz Media published the manga in English in 2003-2008. The manga inspired the 13-episode Legend of Basara television anime series in 1998. Viz Media also published Tamura's two-volume Chicago manga in 2002-2003, and her one-volume Wild Com manga in 2004. Tamura's Tomoe ga Yuku! manga inspired an OVA series in 1991-1992. Source:AnimeNewsNetwork

This year's 15th issue of Shogakukan's Sho-Comi magazine revealed the title and visual of Gō Ikeyamada's new manga as Isekai Maō wa Fujoshi o Zettai Nigasanai (The Fantasy World Dark Lord Won't Let the Fujoshi Get Away) on Saturday. The manga will launch in the magazine's next issue on July 20. Ikeyamada's Dō·Kyū·Sei ~Zutto Kimi ga Suki Datta~ (Classmates: I've Liked You For a While) manga ended in the magazine's 11th issue.

  8. This year's 31st issue of Akita Shoten's Weekly Shōnen Champion magazine revealed on July 2 that Keisuke Itagaki's Baki-Dou manga will take a two-issue hiatus, and will return in the magazine's 33rd issue on July 16. The new Baki-Dou manga uses different characters for "Baki" in the title from the previous Baki-Dou manga, although it retains the name "Baki-Dou." In the new manga, Baki faces off against Japan's oldest and strongest "sumo god," and features the Japanese legendary sumo wrestler Nomi no Sukune. The wrestler supposedly had the first ever sumo match against Taima no Kehaya in 23 B.C. The new manga launched in Weekly Shōnen Champion in October 2018. Akita Shoten will publish the manga's sixth compiled book volume on Wednesday. Itagaki's original Baki The Grappler martial arts manga ran for 42 volumes in Weekly Shōnen Champion magazine from 1991 to 1999. The manga has more than 63 million copies in circulation. The Baki sequel manga ran for 31 volumes from 1999 to 2005. Media Do releases the manga in English. After Baki, Itagaki published the 37-volume Hanma Baki manga in Weekly Shōnen Champion from 2005 to 2012. The first Baki-Dou manga, the overall fourth manga in the franchise, launched in Weekly Shōnen Champion in March 2014 and ended in April 2018 with 22 volumes. Source:AnimeNewsNetwork
  9. Xbox has announced it's to hold a reveal event on July 23 where it intends to show off a bunch of upcoming games for the new Xbox Series X and more at 5pm BST. The event will take place live across all of Xbox's social media channels such as Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Twitch, and is expected to include the first proper showing of Halo: Infinite from 345 Industries which is expected to launch with the Xbox Series X console this Holiday 2020 as well as appearances from other members of the Xbox Game Studios family such as Double Fine Productions. According to sources at VGC, new studio The Initiative is also set to showcase their first game at the event, which as of two months ago was thought to be a new Perfect Dark game. We'll have to wait and see if that comes to pass. The show will also be preceded by an hour's pre-show starting at 4pm UK time hosted by Geoff Keighley as part of the ongoing Summer of Gaming event on YouTube. Rest assured we'll also have details on all the biggest announcements coming out of the show right here on Videogamer as soon as we're able. Source:VideoGamer
  10. A new entry in EA Sports UFC series is set to be revealed at the next big UFC 251 'Fight Island' event as confirmed by the game's logo appearing on official promotional material for the event. As reported by our friends at PlayStation Trophies, EA invited gamers to take part in a closed beta test for 'the next UFC game' back in June, but this will be the first official appearance of the game after its logo was spotted on the PlayStation Network ahead of EA Play last month, though no formal announcement was made at the time. According to sports journalist Brian Mazique who was appearing in a video by combat sports YouTube channel Fight Guys (spotted by VGC) heavyweight boxers Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua have both signed agreements to appear in the game as playable characters. Presumably we'll find out how accurate the information is as well as more detail on what the latest version of the game will offer MMA fans when the reveal for EA Sports UFC 4 drops during UFC 251, taking place on Saturday, July 11.

  11. Publisher Deep Silver has released 20 minutes of new gameplay footage for upcoming action adventure Windbound over the weekend, showcasing a good chunk of a couple of the game's early chapters. The footage (as spotted by our friends at XboxAchievements) is narrated by co-founder and lead animator of developer 5Lives Studios Mitch Clifford, and steps into heroine Kara's shoes as she traverses dangerous islands as well as hunts down wildlife while searching for resources to craft upgrades to help her survive and to improve her sailing vessel in order to make it to harder, more dangerous islands. Check out the footage for yourself below. Windbound is set to launch on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC on August 28. Source:VideoGamer
  12. Left 4 Dead creators Turtle Rock have given a small update on upcoming zombie co-op shooter Back 4 Blood over the weekend by posting some new concept art over on the studio's official Twitter account. It's not a huge amount to go on, but the caption offered alongside mentions giving fans 'a little Hope' with the word Hope capitalised, so presumably pictured is some kind of settlement for the survivors - feel free to speculate for yourself by taking a look at the image for yourself below. Back 4 Blood was first announced back in March of last year as a collaboration between developer Turtle Rock and published by Warner Bros Interactive. Though it's a 'new original IP' from the studio, they hope to reclaim some of the magic that resulted in the success of Left 4 Dead by marrying 'the best of what made the co-op zombie shooter so successful with new features and state-of-the-art technology' in the new game. It's possible that we were supposed to get an update on the game during this year's E3 had it gone ahead until the global COVID pandemic changed plans, although that's entirely speculation on our part as the official accounts have been largely silent since the game's announcement. However, the studio did confirm it had successfully transferred to remote working back in March. Back 4 Blood doesn't have an expected release date yet - when it was announced it was confirmed to be focusing on 'PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4' release; whether that's changed since the announcement of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X since that announcement, we'll have to wait and see.

  13. Long running racing franchise Test Drive looks set to be making a comeback in a big way this week, as the official Twitter account came back to life to announce a new game will be revealed at this week's Nacon Connect event on July 7. All we've got to go on at the moment is the below teaser video, which shows an interesting looking logo, but PC Gamer reported back in March that development duties will be taken on by KT Racing - Kylotonn; the studio currently responsible for the WRC (World Rally Championship) series. The most recent Test Drive game was all the way back in 2012 with Test Drive: Ferrari Racing Legends, when the series was in the hands of Atari, and followed from 2011's excellent open world Test Drive Unlimited 2. The Test Drive name was then picked up by publisher Bigben Interactive back in 2016 who changed their name to Nacon earlier this year. We'll find out more on July 7 during Nacon Connect, where we'll also hear about the next game from Greedfall developers Spiders. Source:VideoGamer
  14. The Last of Us 2 developer Naughty Dog has issued a public statement condemning the harassment and death threats sent to members of the development team and voice cast via the company's Twitter account over the weekend. The tweet, which you can see below, says that although the studio welcomes criticism on the game, they in no uncertain terms 'condemn any form of harassment or threats directed towards our team and cast' and that 'we must all work together to root out this type of behavior and maintain a constructive and compassionate discourse.' The statement came following Abby voice actress Laura Bailey tweeting some of the vile abuse the actress had been sent via social media, (which we'll link here rather than embedding due to content warning of death threats including to her young family) which was also swiftly followed up by the game's director Neil Druckmann sharing more of the abuse he'd been sent (again, content warning including transphobia, homophobia, anti-Semtism and worse) since the game's release. Thankfully, it's not all been bad - with Bailey later commenting on the support she'd recieved in the wake of the horrible messages as 'The amount of encouraging responses to this... I’ve always believed that good people far outweigh the bad. Thanks for reminding me of that today.' The Last of Us: Part 2 launched in the middle of last month for PlayStation 4, unfortunately suffering a barrage of user review bombing on its release. We really enjoyed the game ourselves - with our Josh giving it a 9/10 in his review. Source:VideoGamer
  15. The Shadow Warrior 3 teaser that was teased by the pre-teaser teaser—videogames are weird—is out now, hosted by demon-killing protagonist Lo Wang. There's no in-game footage, but the cinematic has all the blood, dying demons and shitty jokes that you'd expect. This time there's also a grappling hook. Take a look above. James called its predecessor a "thrilling looter shooter that nearly makes up for its bad jokes with a comically advanced gore system" in his Shadow Warrior 2 review. The gore really is spectacularly absurd, letting you hack up enemies with gruesome precision. Expect to leave behind a lot of big messes this time, too. The teaser shows off a lot of over-the-top violence, with body parts being sliced off and holes being punched through torsos, though all of that's stuff you could do in Shadow Warrior 2. The grappling hook is new, though, and is always welcome in any game it appears in. No game has been invented that wouldn't benefit from a grappling hook. Shadow Warrior 3 pits Lo Wang and his sidekick Orochi Zilla against yet more demons as they attempt to recapture an ancient dragon bent on bringing about the apocalypse. It's also their fault that it's out and about in the first place. To do that will require a lot of bullets and blades, and a bit of exploration. To see what else is being thrown into the sequel, you'll need to wait until the gameplay trailer appears on July 11, during Devolver Direct. Shadow Warrior 3 is due out in 2021. Source:PCGAMER
  16. Microsoft has announced the date for its hopefully meaty Xbox Games Showcase. Set aside some time on July 23 for the publisher to douse you with reveals. The Xbox Series X is going to be the focus of the event, of course, with Microsoft undoubtedly hoping they'll be able to one-up Sony, which hosted its PlayStation 5 showcase last month. A lot of it will still be very relevant to us, as the vast majority of Microsoft's first-party stuff will end up on PC. Hopefully it's an improvement over May's next-gen showcase, where Microsoft showed off a bunch of third-party games that didn't really give us a clear impression of what makes the console worth getting over a PS5. Halo Infinite will be making an appearance, but it would also be the perfect time for Microsoft to confirm all those Fable rumours. The Fable trademark, the Twitter account—maybe it's all building up to a reveal at the showcase. You'll be able to watch the event on Twitch, YouTube, Twitter and Facebook from 5 pm BST/9 am PDT on July 23. Geoff Keighley's also hosting a pre-show Summer Game Fest thing, starting at 8 am PDT.

  17. Video Games Deluxe, the studio behind LA Noire: The VR Case Files, is starting a new VR project with Rockstar, according to a post on its LinkedIn page. Founded by Team Bondi creative director Brendan McNamara, Video Games Deluxe works with Rockstar exclusively, but so far only on LA Noire: The VR Case Files. That came out in 2017, followed by a PSVR version last year. The post, shared on Reddit, went up last week, but didn't give away any details aside from it being open world. "Having finished the critically well received L.A.Noire: The V.R. Case Files we are now gearing up for a new project, a AAA open world title in VR for Rockstar," the post reads. "2020 marks our 7th year of working exclusively for Rockstar in Sydney and we are excited to taking on this ground breaking project." It's currently looking for senior programmers, an engine programmer, a designer and an animator. Obviously the project is still some ways off, and Rockstar is yet to comment on the low key announcement. I've reached out to confirm what's been shared by Video Games Deluxe. Source:PCGAMER
  18. It's been a long time since we've heard anything about Back 4 Blood, but thankfully it looks like the Left 4 Dead spiritual successor hasn't returned to the grave. Developer Turtle Rock Studios (who was acquired by, then separated from Valve during Left 4 Dead's development), still isn't giving much away about Back 4 Blood, but you can now stare at a single piece of concept art. Back 4 Blood was announced back in March 2019, and in the time since we've learned very little. It's a co-op FPS where you put zombies back in the ground, with PvP, a campaign and a new universe—so it's not officially connected to L4D. And that's about it. The concept art, however, does give us a few clues about what to expect. A fort suggests that it's been some time since the zombies first appeared. It's a makeshift deal, covered in barbed wire and rusty, corrugated iron, but it's big and pretty elaborate—too elaborate for this to be early on in the zombie apocalypse. And given that Turtle Rock has chosen to show this off first, it probably has a lot of significance. Perhaps it's a hub where the party can prepare between missions, like Vermintide 2's Taal's Horn Keep. The Left 4 Dead series is all about escape, with the party trying to find a safe haven right after the virus starts turning everyone into ravenous corpses, but the concept art and even the title itself, Back 4 Blood, make me think this time it's going to be about fighting back. Maybe we'll be patrolling, clearing areas and chipping away at the horde instead of constantly running to evacuation points. At this point, however, it's all speculation. We've not even seen a screenshot yet. And as for a trailer? "We're working on it," says Turtle Rock, more recently known as the studio behind Evolve. Source:PCGAMER
  19. Dota 2, League of Legends and a few others might still be able to draw in the crowds, but the heyday of MOBAs is behind us. Now it's battle royales that we can't avoid. Among the MOBAs that have fallen by the wayside is Epic's Paragon, but from its corpse has sprung several projects, each using official assets. To blame Paragon's failure on the general decline of the genre would be forgetting that the game was struggling before Fortnite came along, and by 2017 Epic had already tried to reinvent it twice. But it was Fortnite's arrival that sealed its fate, with development slowing down as the battle royale's popularity skyrocketed. In April 2018, it closed down for good. Some good came out of Paragon's demise, however, with all those high quality assets being put up on the Unreal Engine 4 Marketplace for free. And while Epic might not have considered the audience for it large enough, several developers are banking on there still being fans, as they're creating their own takes on the MOBA. At least four MOBAs—Overprime, CORE, Predecessor and Fault—based on Paragon are in the works, each putting a slightly different spin on the formula, and each using the official assets. Fault seems to be furthest along, with it coming to Steam Early Access on July 17. A full launch is expected next year. It throws a feat system into the mix, where completing milestones during matches will net you favour with your chosen faction, in turn letting you grab legendary items. Predecessor will also be playable soon, but only to those able to get into the closed alpha. That's coming this week, on July 10. While Paragon had around 40 characters, the Predecessor alpha will just be testing nine, including Feng Mao, Gadget, Muriel, Murdock and Sevarog. It looks like they've kept both their names and roles. If you fancy trying it out, you can sign up to the alpha now. All of these successors are being developed by much smaller teams than Paragon, and while they've got assets that, according to Epic, are worth $12 million, they don't have the resources available to a massive developer like Epic. They also won't need as big a playerbase to survive, however, but it still seems like a big leap of faith. It's four developers all fighting over the same small slice of pie. With fewer new MOBAs appearing, there might be a lot of people hankering for something like this, but I doubt it will be enough to support all four of them. Maybe they should join forces and combine their resources—though that would likely necessitate some changes to features that the teams might not be happy to make. It looks like it's going to be a fight to the death, then. If you've got a hankering for more Paragon, you can start figuring out which game to back soon. Source:PCGAMER
  20. Horizon Zero Dawn is coming to PC next month, and if you didn't grab it last week you might have to shell out a bit more to see Aloy disassembling robots with her bow. When Horizon Zero Dawn first went on sale in the UK, it was £32.99 on Steam, but since then it's jumped up to £39.99. The Steam forum is rife with people complaining about similar price hikes in different regions, and on SteamDB you can see the full list of price changes. In some cases, like the UK price, this brings the Steam in line with the Epic Games Store, though some prospective players have noted it's now cheaper on EGS in their region. It's inconsistent, however, with some regions seeing an increase on EGS and not Steam. Before the price increase, the discrepancy between regional prices was significant, and VPN users could take advantage of it to get the game significantly cheaper than it would normally be in their country. The original price in Turkey, for instance, was the equivalent of £9, but now it's around £32. This could be one of the reasons that Sony has decided to jack up the price. Steam got regional pricing support a few years ago, though not in all countries, and it's still up to the publisher to determine what price to set. Using a VPN to get a game for a lower price is against Steam's terms of service, though people still take the chance. With some games, Valve and the publisher use geoblocking to stop the codes from working in other regions, though the European Commission considers that a breach of the EU's antitrust rules. Valve is currently contesting this. Increasing the price to stop people from abusing regional differences disproportionately affects the people in those regions, making the games prohibitively expensive. It's not clear if this is what's happened here, though in the past Valve has suggested it to publishers. It could have also been a mistake on Sony's part, and the prices were always going to be this high. Horizon Zero Dawn is due out on August 7. Source:PCGAMER
