News Snatch: Hearthstone, Overwatch, Knack 2, Metal Gear Survive, And Yakuza 2 Remake

Naughty News Snatch escaped a little early yesterday and is very, very, sorry, and to make up for tricking Tony in to thinking it was Friday here’s another catch up of the bits on bobs we missed during the hectic week of Gamescom. We start with a sequel to a long running classic, the bullet hell shooter Raiden V: Director’s Cut has landed on PlayStation 4.

As you might have noticed there are lot of games around so here’s an update on some release dates which were announced in the past day. Dates are for UK unless stated otherwise.

  • Still Time  – 29th August (PS4, PS Vita)
  • Fishing Planet – 29th August (PS4)
  • Hidden Agenda – October 25th (PS4 with PlayLink)

HEX: Card Clash, the “wildly successful digital trading-card game” is coming to the PlayStation 4 later this Autumn. The interesting bit is you can win actual cash by playing.

It’s time for The Ridiculously Named Game From Japan, Section! Please welcome Cyberdimension Neptunia: 4 Goddesses Online! The PS4 version is out October 10th but the Steam version has now bee delayed “to ensure a smooth gameplay experience”. I think that means it needs a bit of a polish. Anyway, here’s some PR bumpf about the game

In Cyberdimension Neptunia: 4 Goddesses Online, you’ll hack ‘n’ slash as the Goddesses of Gamindustri playing an online MMORPG. Noire, Vert, and Uni showcase their chosen classes (Knight, Enchanter, and Thief) in the latest trailer!
Knight Noire – A powerful class that specializes in close combat to plow through the toughest enemies!
Enchanter Vert – Between attacking and healing, she can bestow elemental attributes to give your weapons an extra kick!
Thief Uni – With long-ranged pistols and incredible speed, she’s an agile adversary!

Milestone Interactive have announced that MXGP3 will be coming to Nintendo Switch before the end of the year.

SwapQuest has launched on PlayStation 4, here’s a trailer explaining the game.

News reaches us that Yakuza 2 is being remade for PlaStation 4. A listing for Yakuza Kiwami 2 popped up on the Taiwanese PlayStation store with a release date of December this year. Expect it to be officially announced this weekend.

Here’s some tag-team action from Sonic Forces.

Paragon has a new hero called Drongo. I thought that word was an insult over in Australia but whatever, here he is complete with a boomerang.

So Metal Gear Survive is still a thing. I think some people had hoped it had died quietly in a corner as we’ve not heard much about the game but no, it’s still coming, and here’s some screens to prove it. Konami sent over some additional information about the game:

Metal Gear Survive is a survival action game in an alternative universe. In a struggle to survive, and understand this new environment, players engage in both a Single Play and connected co-op Play. In the battle for survival scavenged materials must be wrought into usable items, gear and weapons if you are to have any hope of making it home.

  • Two ways to play: Single Play and CO-OP Play. These modes are linked via Base Camp. Character progress and gear carries between the two modes.
  • Build and develop your Base Camp: This offers access to weapon and gear crafting. As well as offering you a command centre for planning missions in Single Play and CO-OP Play.
  • Gather resources for use in crafting including blue prints and raw materials. These can be gathered in Single play by exploring the environment or won in successful CO-OP missions
  • Develop Base camp with new facilities to aid survival, Including crop growing, animal rearing, food and water storage. As your camp develops you’ll gain access to high grade crafting items.
  • Manage resources, including human essentials such as food and water as well as raw materials used for weapons, defences and expendables.

Another launch trailer has landed, this is Rivals of Aether which has plopped on to Xbox One.

Here’s a video showing just how extra pretty Rise of the Tomb Raider can be if you buy one of those new fangled Xbox One X things.

This next video is mighty impressive, a huge animated musical number that could have come from Disney Pixar, but is actually from Blizzard and advertising Hearthstone.

Not to be outdone, Overwatch also has an animated short.

Knack 2 is almost with is and to get you in the mood here’s twenty minutes of co-op gameplay from the title.

And Finally, of course it has to be some Improbable Boobs, courtesy of the ever reliable Senran Kagura series. This trailer shows off some new costumes for Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash which go translucent when wet, and some of the smallest bikinis ever seen.

News Editor, very inappropriate, probs fancies your dad.


  1. Tony! Where are ya mate? The boobs are here.

    Peach Beach Splash – Awesome name. Sounds like it should’ve been the name of some 80s filth girl band.

    • He is engaging in some VR. He is playing his single player joystick. Wielding his sword. ;)

    • Return of the improbable boobs! Yay. My day is now made.

  2. Ambearsidor, with this double snatch you are really spoiling us!
    The Overwatch short was really good, never played the game but I really enjoyed that as a quality little story. Metal Gear Whatever sounds like it’s gonna be some Side Ops with zombies, I guess they’re going for maximum MGS gameplay with minimum Kojima. Good luck to them, I can’t say I’m interested but I’m sure it’ll be a fun way to eek out the format without annoying the fans too much.

    • WRONG! The concept and plot for this game couldn’t be more annoying for me having played all the previous metal gear games.

      Zombies in an alternate worm hole universe, BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

      • …OOBS!

      • Dave wins the internets!

      • Haha, okay fair enough is forgotten about the wormholes, they were bloody stupid.

      • Cheers ;)

      • And Quiet’s ass!

        What? we all know that they will attempt to shove her in for fanservice.

        Not complaining but just mentioning it.

        What? if the game shoves tits and asses in my face, i don’t care enough to complain.

  3. I thought it was already out. MGS:Survive that is. Also, what is it with CO-OP being in capitials? Probably be average at best, an utter crapfest like Umbrella corpse at worse.

    Naughty News sounds like a sequel to the Father Tuffcub articles.

    As for the bewbes. is it that game featuring er.. the clearly underage in the UK girls? if so, no. If not and it’s featuring adult women in skimpy bikinis that go translucent when wet, I…. my friend will pick it up in the future. For the purposes of providing an opinion for TSA as no bugger will want to review it. Not even Tuffcub.
