Looking for Everything Shown At Disney And Marvel D23 Event? Although it might’ve felt like Kinda Funny’s Blessing Adeoye Jr. was talking at 1.75x speed about upcoming games and world premieres, Disney and Marvel’s D23 stream event did manage to show a few games that weren’t just cinematic trailers. Here’s everything we saw at Disney and Marvel’s D23 Expo Showcase, organized in order of whether they had actual gameplay or not.
Hey, it looks like Marvel’s Midnight Suns got a new new release date. Seeing as how it was originally slated to release in March before getting delayed (twice) it’s nice to see that it’s coming December 2 for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. We also got our eyes on a nice animated short with the likes of Blade and Wolverine tearing fools up. Now I hear that this game has some sort of important romance mechanic alongside it being Marvel’s answer to XCOM by…becoming XCOM, so I’ll be watching this game’s career with great interest.
Hope you aren’t tired of hearing about Avatar (the blue people one) in 2022, because Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora showed off a new trailer demonstrating how you can create your own Na’vi and participate in a Call of Duty-esque deathmatch with your ponytailed comrades.
While Avatar: Reckoning isn’t necessarily a new game, we did get to see some new gameplay during D23 Expo. Its D23 trailer described the game as an action-packed MMORPG shooter you can play in the palm of your hand Hideo Kojima New Podcast, so if you’re in the market for that, this game might be up your alley.
More Star Wars characters are coming to a Lego game near you because TT Games announced that it’s adding 30 new playable characters to Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga in its new Galactic Edition. The Galactic Edition will include six character packs (running you $6 a pop). These will include Cassian Andor, Reva , Captain Rex and more familiar faces. The Galactic Edition comes out on November 1 for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Switch, and PC.
If you were wanting your own Hearthstone with Marvel characters in mind, Awkwafina’s unmistakable voice just answered your prayer with the announcement of Marvel Snap, a strategy game for mobile.
Fans of The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse cartoons who wished for a platformer with Mickey, Donald, Goofy and Minnie are getting just that. The game looks like a lot of fun, especially with the potential for cooperative play with your buddies.
Monkey Island’s newest trailer was accompanied by the voice (and face) of Dominic Armato, the voice behind Guybrush Threepwood. The trailer touts LucasArts’ classic adventure series having a new art style, musical score, and a Nathan Drake-esque journal for you to document your time on the high seas and reminisce over adventures in past games. Monkey Island comes out on September 19 for PC and Nintendo Switch.
Dreamlight Valley, Disney’s (extremely good) take on Animal Crossing, is getting an expansion with the toys from Toy Story. I gotta admit, climbing around Andy’s room with Buzz and Woody does sound pretty fun, but I was distracted by Mr. Lightyear flirting with Ursula in the trailer. Jessie isn’t gonna like that one, space man. You outta pocket.
