Pokemon: Mewtwo Strikes Back DX Coming to Netflix January 23, 2020

Since the first film was released in 1998, The Pokemon Company has released a new animated Pokémon movie every year like clockwork. The first few films would get theatrical releases, but after the initial wave of Pokemania died down, later films would get released as direct-to-video or straight to television. With Pokemania resurging during the mid 2010s more recent films, received a limited theatrical release. These last two animated features were more intended to be franchise reboots opposed to sequels to the previous films.

The Pokémon Company’s most recent film was a CGI remake of Pokémon: The First Movie called Pokémon: Mewtwo Strikes Back DX. Sadly, last year’s film did not get released in the US, and no explanation was given as to why. Now, we have an answer. This trailer was just released on Netflix’s official YouTube Channel. The next Pokémon film is nearly here.

The trailer may not announce just when this film is coming to Netflix but I will tell you that information. You’ll be able to watch Pokémon: Mewtwo Strikes Back DX on Netflix starting February 28th, 2020.

Halo: Outpost Discovery – How They Did The Ring Experience January 22, 2020

One of the most unique attractions at last year’s Halo: Outpost Discovery event was called The Ring Experience. Located next to the event’s Hall of History, the Ring Experience gave a detailed look at Halo’s environment. We got to see several components of the Halo rings including Delta Halo’s Index, a preserved Flood spore, and a full sized sentinel. We were able to take plenty of photos and video of those items. The dome attraction that concluded the ring experience, however, was not allowed to be filmed.

Thankfully the guys over at the Falcon Creative Group, who worked on the Ring Experience, published this video of it. This not only shows some of the best quality footage of the Ring Experience, it also talks about the attention to detail that went into it. Check it out.

Here’s the official teaser:

Maybe it’s just how the teaser was revealed but I’m getting Majestic vibes from this thing. Am I the only one who remembers that game?

Super Nintendo World Japan Opening This Summer January 14, 2020

Many years ago, Nintendo announced they were teaming up with Universal Studios to open a Super Nintendo World in Universal’s parks! They promised you’ll be able to feel like you’ve traveled into your Nintendo game and interact with many of Nintendo’s iconic characters. Since that announcement we have officially heard NOTHING about the project, although leaks have been trickling out about the project on a regular basis. Now, we have an official video about the land with an official announcement at the end. Super Nintendo World is opening in Japan this summer. Universal Studios have officially promised Super Nintendo World is also coming to their parks in Orlando, Hollywood and Singapore, although Japan’s will open first.

Crank up the sound because this one is going to rock!

Now this is just the beginning of Super Nintendo World as we know it. More will probably be revealed as plans for the park’s rides are shown to the public. While the video is CG you can clearly see Peach’s Castle, Mario Kart, and some kind of augmented reality gaming with the help of special wristbands.

If you want to know my deeper thoughts about the video I will say I have far too many to fit in just this article. I have to admit they used a pretty catchy tune for the video’s soundtrack. However, that’s only because the music is a remix of the classic Super Mario game soundtracks. I am disappointed the song’s actual original composer Koji Kondo did not receive a credit anywhere in the video. He is certainly more deserving of credit than the remixers the video chose to credit instead.
