News Snatch: Street Fighter V, Rocket League, Tekken 7, And Pikachu

Blimey it’s a busy week here on the TSA news desk, game announcements a-go-go and more news than you could stuff down the cleavage of a Senran Kagura Estival Versus character, so we’ve got a lot to get throught today. First up, a TV spot for Street Fighter V.

Rocket League on Xbox One is getting some exclusive Sunset Overdrive DLC including a bubbly orange overcharge and a Fizzie topper.



We seemed to have passed peak zombie, but they’re still present in Call of Duty: Black Ops III and this is a new trailer for zombie based content that can be found in the forthcoming The Awakening DLC pack.


SEGA 3D Classics Collection is headed to retail in North America this April on 3DS, and will include two games not found in the Japanese version, Power Drift and Puyo Puyo 2.



Oh. Spoke too soon, this is Zombie Night Terror, “Lemmings meets Night of the Living Dead”, the twist being that you infect humans and guide your horde through each level rather than try and kill the undead. It’s coming to PC and Mac this Spring.



Prison Architect is coming to PS4 and Xbox One, here is a sneak peak. SPOILERS: It looks like the PC version.


The January update for Rock Band 4 has been delayed and will now be released next week in February, but will include some Psychonauts gear.



The Angry Birds movie is out this year. Can’t say the trailer is making me want to go watch it, it’s not tickling anything let alone my ribs.


Torment: Tides of Numenera has popped in to Early Access on Steam.

“Torment is a game we couldn’t be more excited about,” says Brian Fargo, CEO. “Our fans have placed their trust in us to deliver an experience that lives up to their expectations, and as we did with Wasteland 2, we intend to work with them to deliver it. We take the Early Access program as a very serious step for us to improve the game based on the community’s feedback. Iteration is paramount to me and this helps to guide us putting our efforts into crafting a game worthy of the Torment name.”



Another day, another Warhammer 40,000 game, this is the story trailer for Battlefleet Gothic: Armada, the new space RTS set in the Warhammer universe.


Dying Light is getting a Nightmare mode, the same as Hard Mode but without overpowered Easter Egg weapons and your XP gets reset if you die. On the upside, each co-op player will increase your XP gain by 10%, and you have an increased chance of getting your hands on gold-tier weapons.



Nina Williams is to return in Tekken 7. Hurrah! (I have no idea who she is.)


Guitar Hero Live will be the first place you can see Def Leppard’s new music video for one of their latest songs, ‘Dangerous.’

“When the idea to premiere our newest music video for ‘Dangerous’ in Guitar Hero Live came about, we were thrilled,” said Joe Elliott of Def Leppard. “The way our fans discover and listen to our music has evolved so much throughout the years. Whether they’re playing on vinyl, streaming the songs online or playing along to our music video in Guitar Hero Live, it’s amazing to see how interactive music has become. There are so many interesting ways our fans experience our music, and having the video for ‘Dangerous’ debut in Guitar Hero Live felt like such a great way to reach all of our fans.”

And Finally, Great Detective Pikachu: The Birth of a New Duo is coming to 3DS, in which Pikachu talks and is basically Sherlock Holmes. It’s as weird as it sounds. Tara!

  1. That Sherlock music, that noire style, that deep-voiced Pikachu. It’s the game I never knew I wanted.

  2. There is no world in which releasing your new music video in Guitar Hero Live is “reaching all your fans”.

    • It isn’t, but what it does do is showcases your song/video to people that may not have paid attention previously – Assuming it appears on one of the channels at some point (& isn’t a ‘pay-for-play’ kind of deal), you have no choice but to play it or change the channel. Most would just play it I suspect (unless it really is quite terrible!).

      I don’t think he means that this particular avenue is going to set the world on fire or anything, but it is at least another outlet.

      • It will probably reach more people than just be releasing a video on YouTube, which is the point.
