Friday Funny 117: A Supa Hot Friday!

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome again to another sunny day or evening on Friday. I hope you guys are surviving this intense summer heat. As we make it to the second to last week of July, we are heading towards the upcoming August, another hot month. So much news happening that I can put into much words… or can I (To be honest, I have been behind on writing news. My life has been busy here lately.)? Besides the D23 news with Kingdom Hearts, we got more gaming news but from Evo 2017 Gaming Championship. Capcom recently released some news in regards to their titles Street Fighter V and Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite; Street Fighter V will be introducing a new and giant character in the roster named Abigail who came from the Final Fight game and MvCI released news of players being able to play as Gamora (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Jedah (Darkstalkers). If you are not a fan Capcom, I got other news for you from Tekken, Arc System Works and Arika!

Tekken 7 will be releasing a new character in the fighting roster from a different series. If you like Akuma from Street Fighter, get ready to play as Geese Howard from the Fatal Fury Series. This guy will be playable this winter. Arc System Works have been busy lately but with a good reason. On July 26th, they will be hosting a closed beta for the upcoming Dragon Ball Fighter Z; the game recently revealed that future Trunks, Piccolo and Krillin will join the roster. Besides Dragon Ball, they recently released news of a crossover game called BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle. The game will include 4 different series: Persona 4 Areana, Under Night In-Birth and RWBY. Last but not least, we have what was once an April Fools Prank but now it could be an official game. Game developer Arika who once was in charge of the past game Street Fighter EX series will be creating a new fighting game. It is unknown what is the game title is but they will make it.

After 13 years after the second game, Kingdom Hearts III revealed the initial release date in the Toy Story trailer. Kingdom Hearts III is expect to be out on 2018. 13 long years!

Also, to make a long story short, this weekend is Comic-Con held at San Diego!!!

With all this said, let’s start this shindig!

To help kickstart the weekend, here are some YouTube vids with video games!

Overall, this is the current situation with Capcom and Arc System Works:

Sekirei Pure Engagement (Season 2) (Possible Spoilers!)

Rightstuf describes it:

A clandestine organization known as the MBI has issued an edict that threatens to end the lives of Minato and his luscious companions once and for all! The cutthroat organization’s Sekirei Plan will force all busty brawlers and their masters to engage in a flesh-baring fight to the finish. Only one amazing pair will be left standing when this curvaceous cavalcade of carnage has come to a conclusion. Does Minato have what it takes to survive the bombastic barrage of breast-jiggling blows coming his way?

(May contain spoilers if you have not seen the first season. I will keep the spoilers a minimum.)

D23 news: Kingdom Hearts III new updates!

Hello good people, I got some news from D23 in regards to Kingdom Hearts III. All the news came from IGN, Game Informer and Twitter user Crash Maku Fantasy @RedMakuzawa  .

Toy Story

This Saturday, Square Enix released a new gameplay trailer of Kingdom Hearts III. The trailer revealed Sora demonstrating news moves like using the Guardian form and also teaming up with Hercules in Mount Olympus. The biggest highlight of the trailer revealed a Toy Story World! Sora, Donald and Goofy becomes toys and they help Woody and Buzz find Andy and their missing friends and stop the Heartless and the return of Young Xehanort. This is so far the only Pixar world in Kingdom Hearts.

This is random but relevant news, but Kingdom Hearts II had some codes inside that they were planning to have Woody and Buzz as summon characters but they were removed last minute.

Kingdom Hearts III and HD collection in Switch and Xbox?

Game director Tetsuya Nomura mentions at the D23 that the possibility of Kingdom Hearts III, 1.5+2.5, and 2.8 could be available for Nintendo Switch maybe after they get they release Kingdom Hearts III for Xbox One and PS4. He also mentioned that the following games besides III could get ported for Xbox One as well. However, a Switch release is not a definite answer and it is only a possibility. Here is what Nomura said:

“The Nintendo Switch is definitely a very interesting piece of hardware, but if we lightly say, ‘Oh yeah, we’ll be on the Nintendo Switch,’ I’m sure people will come back and say, ‘But what about the PS4 and Xbox One? We want them out first. Don’t focus on other platforms,’” Nomura told IGN. “So for now, we want to focus on what platforms we’ve already announced we’re going to be releasing Kingdom Hearts 3 on. And so after, perhaps, maybe we can start thinking about other possibilities.”

So in short, Kingdom Hearts III must be released for PS4 and Xbox One first before they tackle on Switch or any other previous titles.

Other playable characters for Kingdom Hearts III?

Kingdom Hearts is well-known for a diverse cast of characters. Besides playing only as Sora, players can sometimes play as Riku, Roxas, Aqua or others; however, today’s recent update reveal some exciting news. Tetsuya Nomura hinted that other characters can be playable besides Sora. Also revealed, the game will have up to five characters joining the party. It was first introduced in the Orchestra trailer, with Sora, Donald, Goofy and Hercules, and now revealed in the Toy Story trailer, players will have many characters helping the player. The video showed Sora, Donald, Goofy, Woody and Buzz working together.

Gummi Ship is back!

Confirmed by the director, the Gummi Ship returns for the game. The Gummi Ship gameplay has not been revealed but it is back. It’s unsure how will it play. In the past games like KHI and II, players use it to travel to different worlds, shoot enemies and even customize their ship.

Be sure to follow @RedMakuzawa for Square Enix news like Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy XV or other Sqare Enix titles.

LAST BUT NOT LEAST (I forgot to mention this) the trailer ends with the possibility of a release date. Kingdom Hearts III might be released for 2018.

News: FFXV DLC, New Game! Dub, Lupin III in theaters!

Final Fantasy XV

Remember this picture above? I got some news about it. Square Enix announced that the Magitek Exosuit DLC will be back and be available for download for free this month as an update. If you didn’t know, this DLC costume was going to be with Booster Pack DLC way back in February but it was pulled off because the costumes looked stikingly familiar to the recent Power Rangers film in March. Square Enix mentioned that these costumes will be changed and modified to avoid copyright conflicts.

New Game!

The popular moe anime New Game! will finally be getting English Dub. FUNimation announced that they will be dubbing the anime in English with directors like Caitlin Glass and Gliford Chapin. The characters already have the voice actor/actress and FUNimation also announced that will be releasing the first 6 episodes today and Episode 7-12 will be on July 28. There are no news on the second season yet. Here is the anime synopsis:

In the original New Game! workplace manga by Shōtarō Tokunō, the main character Aoba Suzukaze graduates from high school and joins a game company. The person who made the game that Aoba loved as a grade-schooler just happens to be Aoba’s senior at the company. The story follows girls who work and aspire at the Eaglejump company.

Lupin III

If you Lupin III and you also like Hayao Miyazaki, I got good news. Fathom Events announced yesterday that they will be screening the 1979 anime film Lupin III: The Castle of Cagliostro on September 14th and 19th. The movie will be in English Dub while some may play in sub. The local screen time is 7:00 PM. Tickets will be on sale on August 18th.

Before we begin I got some news for you guys to look forward to while you have fun or chill.

This past Tuesday, I went to Disneyland with my whole family (this includes my grandparents, sister and husband, and us). It has been a long time since I been to Disneyland; the last time I went was in 2008 where I went to both Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventures. This whole theme brought back my inner childhood and made me really appreciate the magic of this place. Speaking of Disney, if you are free this weekend from today through Sunday, Anaheim is hosting a convention called the D23 (D stands for Disney and 23 is 1923 where Walt Disney became the founder of his company). The D23 will offering information and fun to Disney fans who are interested in Disneyland, Disney cartoons and movies whether it is about Marvel, Star Wars or generally cartoon films. Mark your calendars for Saturday because according online sources, this Saturday will be unveiling some video game information on Kingdom Hearts III, Spider-Man PS4, and Star Wars Battlefront 2.

Also, be sure to support the OWLS this week. Go read Hazel’s post on Psycho Mob, Lita’s talk on Superheroes and Naja’s post on My Hero Academia. We are discussing on the the importance of our reflection on society and comparing ourselves to others and why does it matter today.

I also saw Spider-Man: Homecoming last Sunday. It was an amazing movie and I highly recommend it. The story was filled with many intense action scenes and silly humor and Tom Holland really nailed it as Spider-Man.

With all said, let’s begin the magic!

Here are some videos to watch. This will be in 3 parts.

My Final Fantasy Legacy: Happy 30th Anniversary #FFLegacies

I would like to start off by saying Happy 30th Anniversary to Square Enix popular video game franchise Final Fantasy. This year marks the 30th anniversary and I would like to express my love to the this game series. After watching this video FINAL FANTASY XV: New Legacies, I got inspired to write how much did Final Fantasy affected my life.

It may not be greatly impacted like finding romance or dealing with social anxieties but this series has indeed affected for maybe for the better. Warning, this is a lengthy post!

Naruto news: Naruto Legacy game and new Boruto anime!

Here is some juicy Naruto news!

Bandai Namco Entertainment announced that the upcoming Naruto collection game Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Legacy game will be released on August 25th for PS4, Xbox One and Stream. The game will be available in physical in all Americas except for the Brazil version. The price of the set will be $79.99 with the steel case and art book. This will also have a special Boruto anime in which was premiered in Jump Special Anime Festa in Nov/Dec. The game set will have the following:

  • Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm 1
  • Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2
  • Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3
  • Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4

If you don’t want this game set, Bandai Namco Entertainment will also release Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy in which will include the first 3 games instead.

In the 32nd issue of the Japanese Shonen Jump magazine, the issue revealed that the anime Boruto: Naruto Next Generation will be entering a new arc based on the single volume one-shot Naruto the Seventh Hokage and the Scarlet Spring. The arc will premier this month. If you don’t know what it is, read the synopsis from Viz Media, it involves Sarada and the truth about her parents:

Naruto was a young shinobi with an incorrigible knack for mischief. Then he channeled that energy into learning amazing ninja techniques and saving the world! Now Naruto has achieved his dream to become the greatest ninja in the village and his face sits atop the Hokage monument. But new troubles are bubbling up in the shinobi world…

With the world now safe and the ninja villages working together, Naruto’s work as Hokage seems pretty mundane. Giving his son, Boruto, enough attention is the toughest task he has. But then Sasuke uncovers a conspiracy that may involve surviving members of the Uchiha clan. And at the same time, Sarada is begins to have doubts about the truth of her origins.

Friday Funny Episode 116: The Amazing Spectacular Ultimate Spider-Man!

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Look out, here is comes another episode! In this episode we are on the first Friday of July and the summer weather has been very brutal here. I hope everyone had a safe Independence Day and got some rest from the loud fireworks. I am going to be like JJJ and just say that today is the movie release of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Homecoming. Tom Holland is the current Spider-Man/Peter Parker and Tony Stark/Iron Man is in the movie mentoring him. Spider-Man: Homecoming will take place after Captain America: Civil War and Peter wants to be more than a friendly neighborhood hero and be an actual hero like the Avengers. He is going to face a tough foe called the Vulture and he must learn what is means for great responsibilities.

Even though this game will not come out until 2018, IGN compiled some comic books to prep for the upcoming Spider-Man PS4 game. If you plan to buy this game and want to see where the creator’s got influence, you can learn from these.

Also, last but not least, the OWLS started the month with a new blog tour topic about Mirrors. Recently, Shay talked about Paradise Kiss, Arria discussed The Ancient Magus’ Bride and I talked about Brotherhood: Final Fantasy XV. Today is Zoe of Let’s Talk About Anime. Please sshow your support by visiting these blogger’s post and spread the word of OWLS, together we will fight to improve self-respect.

Let’s start this amazing Friday!

Look out, here comes the vids!
