Year 5: September Update

Another month is flying by rather quickly and I suppose I don't have a lot to talk about though there were some more gaming events with new announcements. The reason I uploaded another video on the blog's YouTube channel for a Sega Master System light gun game this month is I want to get rid of my old tube TV as it's quite bulky and I rarely touch it. The only other platform I own a light gun for is the Saturn but I've never actually used it, and I think the only game I have that is compatible with it is Virtua Cop. Back in 2019 I posted about the Aladdin and Lion King game compilation and now there is an updated edition coming to stores on November 9th that adds The Jungle Book and the Super Nintendo version of Aladdin to the collection.

Sony held a "PlayStation Showcase" event on September 2nd where it announced a sequel to Spider-Man and another new Marvel title from Insomniac Games that stars the X-Men's Wolverine. These games are at least a couple years away though and exclusive to the PlayStation 5. Aspyr Media is remaking BioWare's Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and it will be a console launch exclusive on the PlayStation 5 which means it will likely get to Xbox at a later date (it doesn't have a release date yet). This isn't a remaster, it's a full remake of one of the best Star Wars games and certainly one of my favorites.

Marvel's Spider-Man 2

Nintendo just streamed a "Nintendo Direct" video presentation this past Thursday with a variety of things shown, including a new Kirby game for 2022 and the addition of Nintendo 64 (N64) and Sega Genesis games to the Switch's online service, plus N64 and Genesis gamepads will be available for the Switch. The video also unveiled the voice cast for an animated Mario Bros. movie that will hit theaters in late 2022. A couple of the actors featured are Chris Pratt as Mario and Jack Black as Bowser.

Kirby and the Forgotten Land

That's about it for this month's update. Thanks for stopping by!
