Game Hype: Cover Art, Metroid Prime Remastered, Dead Cells: Return to Castlevania DLC, The Jackbox Party Pack 10 & More


Love the Japanese box art for Unpacking. 

Dead Cells: Return to Castlevania DLC is out March 6th and dang it just looks like it's gonna be a lot of fun for fan of Metroidvanias. When are we getting some Samus crossover love too? She just got her game remastered above, let's see her in Dead Cells too.

The Jackbox Party Pack 10 has been announced for a Fall release. The last pack wasn't it's strongest, so here's hoping the go big for their tenth one. No news on the games in the upcoming pack. However, a lot of deals and memories for previous Jackbox Pack games will be leading up to the new one.

Here's a little more from the press release

"...because each of the Party Packs are full of special memories, the Jackbox Games team will be highlighting one Party Pack per month leading up to the release of The Jackbox Party Pack 10. There will be behind the scenes tidbits from the development process, special livestreams featuring members of the development team and heavily discounted Steam codes for the Pack of the Month in the official Jackbox Games shop. "

Listen, Bandai Namco isn't gonna try and make a new Katamari game anytime soon. So, instead we're just getting a lot of remasters. Heck, look above and you can see Nintendo doing it too. But, sheesh, do a new game Namco.

From the press release: "WE LOVE KATAMARI REROLL+ ROYAL REVERIE brings the offbeat and inventive KATAMARI DAMACY franchise back to current and new-gen platforms, where players can experience a faithful yet updated version of the original game. The new title will add quality-of-life enhancements and new modes such as Selfie Mode and Eternal Mode, which introduces casual play with no time limits.  In addition, five new challenges themed around the story of the young King of All Cosmos have been added to the remaster, along with all new collectibles to roll up"

We Love Katamari Reroll+ Royal Reverie is out June 2, 2023

Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective is also coming back, remastered for like all current consoles and PC. See it this Summer. 

These are nice and all, but there's no problem making sequels to games too.
