K-pop star turned murderer is new character in Dead by Daylight

Co-developed by BTS collaborator

Published

on

Since its meteoric rise into the global pop culture scene, the K-pop industry has infiltrated every facet of our world including smartphones and social media. One industry that K-pop stars and K-pop stans haven’t penetrated yet is the video game world. That’s changing soon, though. Well, somehow. Popular horror multiplayer game Dead by Daylight is adding a K-pop star as its newest killer.

In the asymmetrical horror game, four survivors go up against a powerful killer. Over the year, the game’s developer Behaviour Interactive acquired different horror characters in the years since it launched including Michael Myers and Pyramid Head. Despite already being years into its life cycle, the game still adds in new characters at a regular clip.

Today, the game has announced its latest killer, The Trickster. Much like most characters, The Trickster comes with his own lore.

Ji-woon, a former K-pop star and member of boy band NO SPIN, became jealous of his other group members and killed them all. In the game, Ji-woon (or Trickster) can use ranged daggers and a host of abilities. Along with Ji-woon, the game will also introduce a new survivor, Yun-Jin Lee, the K-pop producer who recruited Ji-woon into the boy band. Yun-Jin’s powers include the ability to sprint right after hitting the killer with a palette.

Behaviour Studios developed the two characters with the help of U-KISS’ Kevin Woo and producer DJ Swivel.

Currently, both characters are not in the game yet. They are still under testing in the game’s Player Test Build. Dead by Daylight is available on Steam, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. It also has mobile ports to Android to iOS.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus is the first open-world Pokémon game

Coming to the Switch in early 2022

Published

on

Since the launch of Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Nintendo fans have continuously clamored for a similar open-world version of the Pokémon franchise. Well, Nintendo apparently heard the overwhelming clamor. Coinciding with the Pokémon Diamon and Pearl remakes, The Nintendo Company announced its first open-world Pokémon game, Pokémon Legends: Arceus.

Unlike the more formulaic entries in the franchise, Pokémon Legends: Arceus differs greatly. For one, the game is set in feudal Japan, a far cry from the main entries’ modern setting. Secondly, it looks like it’s nonlinear at all. It looks like a combination of Pokémon Sword’s and Shield’s Wild Area and Breath of the Wild’s open area. In fact, the teaser trailer even had shots similar to the latter’s trailer. Even the trailer’s music was minimalistic, much like the Zelda game.

Like Diamond and Pearl, Legends: Arceus will take place in the Sinnoh region. But, instead of the usual trio for Sinnoh, the game will offer up three different starter Pokémon: Alola’s Rowlet, Johto’s Cyndaquil, and Unova’s Oshawott. Plus, unlike the usual battle mechanic, players can throw PokéBalls out in the open. (As to how PokéBalls existed back then, we don’t know yet.)

Further, since we’re in the Sinnoh region, the titular legendary Pokémon Arceus is involved in the game’s story. He made a cameo in the trailer’s ending.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus is coming soon to the Nintendo Switch sometime in early 2022.

Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl announced for 2021

Remakes of the original games

Published

on

It’s Pokémon’s 25th anniversary! As you might expect, a major anniversary isn’t complete without a major game announcement. Fresh from a massive content expansion for the current-generation Pokémon Sword and Shield, The Pokémon Company has announced two upcoming remakes of the past generation: Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.

Much like Let’s Go Eevee and Pikachu, Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl will bring the Nintendo DS games to the Switch. Originally released back in 2006, the original duo took players to Sinnoh to fight against Team Galactic while fighting their way to become the Sinnoh Champion.

Instead of a full-on remake, both games will retain the same quirky design of the original games. According to the trailer launched today, the remakes will look a lot cuter than the old DS graphics. It will also have a few feature improvements to make a player’s experience easier.

Other than that, the remake is faithful to the original. Players can still choose between the original three starters: Chimchar, Turtwig, and Piplup. Further, trainers can hunt for the series’ two legendary Pokémon, Dialga for Diamond and Palkia for Pearl.

At the moment, though, the announcement has not revealed how the remake will adopt the Switch’s different system. For one, unlike the DS, the Switch does not have a secondary screen. For sure, The Pokémon Company will release more details in the coming months.

Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl is coming to the Switch in the latter half of this year.
