Pac-Man is far from dead as Bandai Namco announces the upcoming game coming out for the PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. Titled Pacman and the Ghostly adventures 2, the game will be more than just chomping down stuff for Pac-Man--you can explore the world of Pacopolis and even the Netherworld.
There will be new transformations set for Pac-Man, including PacZilla and powers like Ice Pac and Fire Pac, as well as vehicles and rockets.
"Pac-Man continues to be one of gaming's most iconic and positive characters for more than 30 years. We are excited to continue that tradition with PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures 2 by giving Pac-Man a bright and colourful new world to explore," said Chris Gilbert, Bandai Namco senior VP of sales and marketing, in a press release spotted by Joystiq. For now, there's no specific release date as of yet.
Prince of Persia teased in Twitter
Just after the leaks for the Assassin's Creed: Unity and Comet surfaced, another game from Ubisoft has gotten a leak via one of its own engineers, reports GameSpot.
The leaked game seems to be The Prince of Persia, as the teaser screenshot, available at the link, shows off a lineup of The Prince of Persia characters with a question mark on the last one.
This would be good news for fans of the franchise, though Ubisoft seems unable to control leaks like these. It seems to be happening especially for unannounced games from Ubisoft, which could mean that an announcement of The Prince of Persia may be coming after some time, similar to when Assassin's Creed: Unity was officially revealed.
Considering the timing for the E3, it would be a good place to make some announcements, so perhaps the screenshot is truly a teaser for fans.
League of Legends adds another champion
Riot Games, developer of League of Legends has just announced new champion in the form of Braum, the Heart of the Freljord.
According to VG 24/7, Braum's background is touched upon, as he is descried to be a powerful man with an equally powerful mustache.
Braum's story started here [Freljord], and as his strength and fortitude grew, so too did his legend. Today, his feats inspire all from the poorest of peasants to the fiercest of raiders. And as he prepares to bear his shield into battle once again, he goes knowing he carries the hopes and admiration of the Freljord's people with him," said the developer over at the official League of Legends blog.
The new champion's abilities have also been revealed. His basic attacks apply Concussive Blows that add stacks after the first one.
