Starcraft II is finally dated for release. Wings of Liberty, part 1 of the three installments of the said franchise is set for July 27th of 2010 and will retail for $60 for the normal release and $100 for the Collector’s Edition which includes a 176-page art book and a flash drive preloaded with the original Starcraft and its Brood War expansion.
Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty will focus on the human Terran faction with a 29-mission single-player campaign. However, the multiplayer component will also let gamers wage interstellar real-time strategy warfare as the hivelike Zerg and technologically advanced Protoss factions. Two sequels focusing on those factions–Legacy of the Void and Heart of the Swarm–are also in development.
Street Fighter Legacy
Joey Ansah, a famous actor,filmmaker and action choreographer received CAPCOM’s blessing in his upcoming fan film of Street Fighter to be titled as “Street Fighter Legacy”. This fan film was brought about as to how Ansah got sick and tired of the movie adaptations done unto fighter games such as Street Fighter, Tekken and other related titles.
” As an actor, film maker and a fan, I have been repeatedly disappointed by the many diluted, un faithful and outright butchered movie adaptations of fighting video games. It was clear to me, that given the way the movie industry worked, we would never see a super faithful, darker toned and more adult themed (or just plain good!) incarnation of Street fighter unless a die-hard fan director or film-making team with the game canon knowledge, film making know how and connections stepped up to the plate to helm such a project.
So almost a year ago, I began writing treatments and a production design brief and partnered with Streetlight films before proposing my concept and vision to Capcom. I’m pleased to say they gave their blessing and permission for the project to move forward.”
