Historically, Ni no Kuni has taken an almost Final Fantasy-style approach to sequels. Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch and its only-in-Japan counterparts, Dominion of the Dark Djinn for DS and Hotroit Stories for mobile devices, exist as one story. The console sequel, Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom, takes place many generations later, with any ties to the original basically functioning as fun Easter eggs. Characters and plot don't move between games, but themes, the art style, and certain enemies and races do. The 2019 Ni no Kuni movie took a similar approach and did not feature direct overlap with the games. The upcoming No no Kuni mobile MMO, Cross Worlds, is continuing the tradition and not relying on the story that came before it. But there are plenty of reasons to recognize Cross Worlds as a legitiamte Ni no Kuni game that understands its roots--and it might be more of proper sequel than assumed. The original Ni no Kuni tells the story of a young boy who loses his mother … [Read more...] about How Does Cross Worlds Fit Into The Ni No Kuni Universe?

It has been a very, very long time since we've seen anything from the Silent Hlil series, with a full decade having passed since the release of Silent Hill: Book of Memories on Vita--and an almost unbelievable eight years since PT gave fans hope for the Hideo Kojima-led reboot Silent Hills. Now, however, it appears we could finally be returning to Konami's legendary horror series, and it could be with multiple games. Here's what we know--including rumors--about the Silent Hill franchise's future, as well as what we hope to see as we head into Summer Game Fest and the other Not-E3 events in June. Multiple games? Despite being on ice for so long, it appears the Silent Hill franchise will be returning with not just one, but several different games . Assuming reports on these games are accurate, Konami seems to be catering to multiple different types of players across these titles rather than trying to produce one game capable of pleasing them all. According to Grubbsnax host … [Read more...] about New Silent Hill Games: Everything We Know (And Want To See)
If you're a serious Stranger Things fan as well as a serious Monopoly fan, you might want to hold off a bit longer before diving into the new themed edition of the classic board game, because it spoils some pretty major plot points from Stranger Things Season 4 . Series creators Matt and Ross Duffer are not happy about it, according to The Hollywood Reporter . While the Duffer Brothers are reportedly quite involved with marketing efforts for their massively successful Netflix series, the show is too big at this point for them to see everything, and the game seems to have slipped by, causing the brothers to have a "total meltdown" according to sources. The toy and board game industries move at a different pace from the film and television industries and has been a source of spoilers more than once in recent years, frustrating creators and fans alike. As THR notes, Jon Favreau fiercely protected Grogu, also known as Baby Yoda or The Child, from spoilers, causing the associated … [Read more...] about Stranger Things Season 4 Details Leaked in Monopoly Set, Creators Are Unhappy

Naturally, as the only other known human with experience with this sorta thing, her cousin Bruce Banner arrives at some point to show her the ropes.
