Epic has officially downed tools on its long-in-development Unreal Tournament revival, company boss Tim Sweeney has confirmed.

It's not a huge surprise - the Fortnite maker has been rather busy focusing on its battle royal phenomenon, not to mention prepping its Please login or register to see this link. . Still, it was thought a skeleton crew might have been aboard the Unreal Tournament ship. Alas, not.

"Unreal Tournament remains available in the store but isn't actively developed," Sweeney told Please login or register to see this link. . It's a change in message from two months ago, when Epic admitted the game was not making much progress but, seemingly, was still in the works.

Progress on the new Unreal Tournament had been slow for some time.

I'd love another Unreal Tournament, but it is understandable why Epic mothballed its attempt at recreating the series' arena-based frag-happy gameplay for a new audience.

This has been for like years now. I use to make maps for UT4 back in the day but the seen and the forum after fortnight came out and became a thing dried up and most of epic staff got moved to that so what was left felt like 5 people so i'm a little suppressed thisย announcement took this long.
All in all it's kinda sad UT4 was shaping up to be a good game for people that are into 90's fast paced shooters and could of easily killed TOXIKK andย other games that where trying to bring back that area of games. Epic could of launched launched UT4 back in mid 2016 ~ early 2017 if they just doped the hole "alpha early access" BS and made a few more of there one maps and content instead of relining on the community to do it for them.

      As so often happens, it seems there were minor regional differences between the Nintendo Direct broadcasts for the east and west. Japanese fans were treated to games missing from the North American and European versions.
      First up is Dragon Quest Rivals, a free download first released on mobile back in 2017. It's an online card-based battler in the Hearthstone mould with characters from across the RPG series and cross-play between Switch and mobile.

      Next is a cutesy baseball game from Konami, Jikkyuu Powerful Pro Baseball, launching this year. Part of a long-running series, it's arguably most notable for being from Konami - they still make games, see! - but we're not the biggest baseball fans. Four-player co-op sounds interesting, though, if you like a spot of rounders.

      Finally we have a crossover, Doraemon: Nobitaโ€™s Story of Seasons, and we're a bit jealous. It appears to mix classic Harvest Moon-style gameplay with the cast of Doraemon in a beautiful watercolour world. Check out the trailer:
      Looks lovely, no? Hopefully we'll get some information about a western release soon

      LO ANGELES, CA โ€“ Crowds gathered outside of the Los Angeles Supreme store earlier this afternoon in anticipation for the skateboarding and streetwear brandโ€™s latest release in collaboration with anime series Miss Kobayashiโ€™s Dragon Maid. The collaboration features a limited run of various clothing and accessories incorporating Dragon Maid characters with the iconic Supreme box logo.
      Fans began lining up hours in advance in hopes of being among the first to partake in the launch. Unlike previous releases, the launch not only attracted the usual crowd of brand enthusiasts but fans of the Dragon Maid anime as well. Supreme collectors and so called โ€œhypebeastsโ€ found themselves beaten to the punch as anime fans began lining up hours before others had even arrived.
      โ€œIโ€™ve been to Anime Expo before so itโ€™s actually quite a relief to only have to wait for 12 hours before getting the opportunity to buy some merch,โ€ stated anime fan Brian Denmond who had been in line since the night before. โ€œNormally you have to line up for a badge before you can even begin to queue for the merchant hall.โ€
      โ€œIโ€™m not sure what this Supreme thing is but once I heard from my Discord group that there were going to be Kanna shirts I knew I had to get down here,โ€ another young man near the beginning of the line told our correspondent.
      Others in line did not provide such positive feedback, feeling cheated by the sudden influx of anime fans that had taken over the front portion of the line.
      โ€œThis is total bull,โ€ said Nathan Dallas dressed in the finest name brands his parentsโ€™ money could buy. โ€œIโ€™m always here for the latest drop, but at this rate those damn weebs are going to grab all the good shit before I even get up there.โ€
      When the door finally opened, all merchandise was reportedly sold out within 15 minutes. Those who had been lucky enough to make a purchase were last seen heading towards the Los Angeles Convention Center to begin saving their spot for Anime Expo.

      Mass entertainment company Disney made an informal industry announcement yesterday that it had begun plans to produce a series of live action adaptations of classic Studio Ghibli films. With live action versions of Dumbo, Aladdin, and Lion King already scheduled for release in just 2019 alone, Disney stated it had started to look into other properties to also give the live action treatment. Disney is already known to have been a major distributor of Studio Ghibli movies throughout North America so the move was seen as the next logical step for the company as is begins to run out of movies of its own to convert.
      No official statement was given as to which Ghibli films were being considered for a live action remake although rumors pointed to Spirited Away, Howlโ€™s Moving Castle, and My Neighbor Totoro as likely candidates. Disney did state that the release would feature โ€œmajor Hollywood talentโ€ with insider leaks revealing that Will Smith had already been contacted for a potential role. Major director talent from industry veterans James Cameron and Tim Burton was also rumored to be on the table.
      Disney assured fans that the completely necessary live action films would still follow the original stories of the Ghibli films with additional alterations only to โ€œmodernizeโ€ and โ€œbroaden the appealโ€ of the movies โ€“ something which definitely hasnโ€™t had a history of diminishing the original tone in other adaptations. The colorful imaginative worlds of Miyazakiโ€™s original works would also certainly not be lost in the conversion to the gritty realism of modern computer generated graphics.
      No set release dates have been announced so far, although most expect the first of the live action Ghibli films to arrive sometime in 2020. Not to be outdone, production company Legendary Entertainment also announced that it had begun preliminary production on a live action Beyblade film. Legendaryโ€™s movie is set to be directed by Micheal Bay and will feature a team of young heroes who battle hyper realistic robotic spinning weapons against each other.
