Jurassic World Alive

Hold onto your butts: the Jurassic Park franchise is the latest pop culture juggernaut to jump on the augmented reality bandwagon. A new report says Universal has teamed with mobile game developer Ludia to create Jurassic World Alive, a new AR game that’s similar to Pokemon Go.

Harry Potter mobile game

While fans can walk around inside a physical recreation of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios theme parks, there’s nothing that simulates the experience of being a student at the school from the Harry Potter books and movies. But a new role playing game called Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery aims to change that by allowing players to create their own characters and “choose their own path as a student at the school.”

This is different from the augmented reality game that was announced recently, so it looks J.K. Rowling’s magical world is about to break into the gaming space in a big way next year. Read more about the newest Harry Potter mobile game below.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 The Last Jedi

Fans of Star Wars Battlefront II were up in arms when they realized it would take 40 hours of game play (and a heck of a lot of in-game credits) to be able to unlock the ability to play as Darth Vader, and EA ultimately relented to the overwhelming pressure and made that character (and others) far more easily accessible to all.

Now a slick new trailer for the game shows off highlights of its upcoming first “season” of free downloadable content, which incorporates characters like Finn and Captain Phasma and locations like Crait from Rian Johnson‘s upcoming sequel Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Take a look.

Planet of the Apes Last Frontier

While ideas of more Planet of the Apes movies are still floating around the studio lot over at 20th Century Fox, a sequel to (or spin-off of) this summer’s spectacular War for the Planet of the Apes has not officially been given a green light yet. But fans of that world will have the opportunity to dive back into it with a new video game that comes out this year.

Planet of the Apes: Last Frontier is set between the inexplicably-titled Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and War, which are the two most recent films in the franchise. And here’s some more good news: Andy Serkis, who plays the ape leader Caesar in the new film trilogy, is involved in the game.

Kingdom Hearts 3 trailer

It’s finally happening. Kingdom Hearts 3 may finally be in our grasp. And it only took creator Tetsuya Nomura 12 years, five filler games, and four “remixes” for us to finally get a Kingdom Hearts 3 release date. And it’s not even a real date, just an entire year — 2018.

Oh, well. At least we got a reveal that Toy Story will be one of the new worlds that Sora, Donald, and Goofy get to explore in the Disney-Square Enix collaborative franchise. That, new gameplay demos, and brand spanking new graphics that look even better than Pixar’s then-cutting edge film, are breathing hope back into my cold, hollow soul that believed we’d never get a Kingdom Hearts 3 until I was dead. I can wait around for one more year.
