A new first person 6v6 Gundam, Gundam Evolution game is coming to PC in Japan in 2022, with beta testing taking place later next month in August. Sadly for us in the West, this is tied to Japan only at the moment, so who knows if we will ever see a Western release at a later time or not.

The game will be free to play and hosts small sized 6v6 PVP battles with various game modes such as; domination / capture the flag, all set in the gundam universe. Play style looks similar to Overwatch and other shooters, and whilst I personally think it looks great fun, we will need to see how it plays and what other features it has built in.

I’m crossing my fingers for a Western release sometime in the future but I highly doubt it sadly (Since we never seem to get a load of awesome Japanese games over here). More information can be found at https://gundamevolution.jp/ (can translate to English in browser)

One of my fondest Sega Mega Drive memories from my childhood – Streets of Rage. The second Streets of Rage was easily my favourite; the characters, levels, and my god THE MUSIC !!!. 26 years I’ve been waiting to play a new SOR game and its finally here guys !.

Thats right !, Streets of Rage 4 now has an official release date, it’ll be dropping next week on; PC, Xbox1, PS4, and Nintendo Switch, April 30th. The UK price will be £24.99 on Steam, PS4 and Nintendo Switch. If your an Xbox Gamepass subscriber, then lucky you ! You’ll be able to play Streets of Rage 4 via gamepass for free* on day 1.

*- Free when subscribed to Xbox Gamepass subscription. 

Those of you looking into buying physical copies of the game, good news again, Limited Run Games have Streets of Rage 4  pre-orders up for the Switch and PS4 physical versions of the game.

The digital / retail game will come with some nice extras too, like the original music, original characters. Theres x5 new characters to play as, as well as x12 from the first two games. Soundtracks from the first two games are included too, so youll be able to switch between your favourite music and characters from the new and old versions of the game, which I think is a really nice touch !

I’ll be playing SOR4 on gamepass first and foremost and will either pick it up for Switch or PS4 (for playing on the go) at a later date.
