WEEKLY NEWS UPDATES FOR 4TH APRIL – 17TH MAY

Headlines For 11th to 17th May

A new project designed as a spiritual successor to the long running Castlevania series, Bloodstained: Ritual Of The Night, has proved to be a hit on Kickstarter by raking in nearly $1.3 million in funding within a day (as of writing this article, the figure has risen to $2,223,566!).

Ratchet & Clank Movie Announced, Coming 2015

Insomniac Games will be assisting the production process, which is being overseen by Blockade Entertainment & Rainmaker Entertianment, and T.J Fixman (who has written the scripts of the most recent Ratchet & Clank games) will be writing the film’s script.

The series is well known for its humor, galaxy wide scope and high presentation sheen, so I for one reckon this is a project that would work very well on the big screen…and maybe open up future opportunities for other animated game films? As we all know, video game films are largely terrible, but I’ll keep my fingers crossed for this one. Check out the first trailer for the film below!
