This week, checks are cashed in Hitman 2 Katanas tinkered with Samurai Shodown and Super Mario Maker 2 . Here's your look for the things that hit big and little waves in the world of games this week and beyond. Watch the video above or read a transcript below.
On Monday Legion returns to FX for their third and final season. From Fargo creator Noah Hawley, this trippy stand-alone story exists in its own universe outside the X-Men movies, Marvel Cinematic and … pretty much all the universes out there. The show tells the story of David Haller, a.k.a. Legion, and in Season 3 Trailer, we get a look at Charles Xavier, who has not appeared on this show yet. That's pretty cool.
On Tuesday in Hitman 2 a new place called The Bank will be released. This first additional post-launch mission will be released for owners of the Hitman 2 Expansion Pass and Expansion Pack 1
Samurai Shodown will be released this Tuesday on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Throw off the eighteenth-century Tenmei Japan of Japan with your 13 series favorites and three other new characters, all of which will be playable on launch. Owners of switches and PCs have to wait until winter to swing their samurai swords.
The new World of Warcraft update Rise of Azshara, released Tuesday for PC and Mac. This new update, also known as Patch 8.2, will provide players with two new zones: the submerged naga city of Naziatar and Mechagon, a new eight-boss robbery, a new essence system, and more. We will be reporting on the website this week.
On the occasion of the Xbox E3 briefing, it was announced that Ninja Theory's first Xbox-exclusive Bleeding Edge will have its technical Alpha release on Thursday. The game is also expected to be released via the Windows Store on the PC. In this game, two teams of four players compete against each other in a three-way battle, combining different classes and skills.
I'll be testing it on our twitch channel this Thursday.
The expansions continue, as Gwent receives its Novigrad extension this Thursday, and it's a big expansion. The mysterious Syndicate joins the fight as the newest playable faction with five new leaders, new unique abilities and a new combat resource called Crowns.
At the end of the week, Super Mario Maker 2 will finally be released for the switch this Friday. Mario Maker 2 will set Twitch on fire with a host of new tools and features. Check out the website this week to learn more about the game.
Let's leave a few comments below on what you were most looking forward to this week.
