Session

Microsoft showcased Session, a new skateboarding game from Crea-ture Studios, during its E3 2018 press conference today.

The game’s new trailer shows off some of the tricks that players can perform in the game, recreating the skate culture of the late 1990s and early 2000s. The game promises a “unique control scheme that gives players full control.”

Conceived under the working title Project: Session in 2015, the game was successfully funded within three days on Kickstarter late last year, earning a total of CA$163,716.

Early predictions for E3 this year hoped that EA would announce Skate 4, a sequel to its 2010 game Skate 3. However, when the company failed to reveal the game at its press conference on Saturday, fans looked elsewhere, and Microsoft answered.

The game will be available on PC and Xbox One.

Konami Willing to Make More Remasters

Zone of the Enders Konami

Konami has said that it is willing to remaster more games if fans ask for them.

During an IGN interview at E3 about Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner Mars, Konami brand manager Benjamin Kinney expressed the company’s willingness to produce more remasters:

“Eventually if you’re loud enough and you speak with one voice, anything is possible.”

Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner Mars is a remastered version of the PlayStation 2 game featuring a new VR mode, coming to PC and PlayStation 4. The title was initially announced at Sony’s Tokyo Games Show in 2017.

The remaster will come native at 4K with recreated textures, updated particle effects, and new control schemes to name just a few of the many improvements across the game. The title also includes a new Very Easy mode so players can experience the story.

The most notable addition is VR support. Playing Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner Mars in VR will put the gamer in the cockpit of Jehuty, the character’s giant mecha. Konami has recreated the cut scenes and assets to contribute to an immersive situation. The developers have worked with first-party VR companies such as PlayStation VR and HTC Vive to refine the game, making it as smooth as possible to reduce any chance of motion sickness.

Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner Mars has a gallery mode with VR where users can tumble and look at various models in game. The game will sport “next-gen audio,” supporting Dolby Atmos and Dolby 7.1 surround sound.

The first game has not been remastered for the PlayStation 4 nor VR, but if the fans ask for it, Konami may listen.

4K and VR demos are available on the PlayStation Store to download.
