Double Fine Productions Joins Xbox Game Studios

Published

 on

At E3 2019, Microsoft announced that Double Fine Productions has joined Xbox Game Studios.

Matt Booty, Head of Xbox Game Studios, brought on Tim Schafer, Founder of Double Fine Productions, to the stage to show off a brand new trailer for Psychonauts 2.

In a press release, Matt Booty exclaimed:

In the past year, we welcomed seven new game development studios to Xbox. It’s great to see some of them already sharing new projects on our E3 stage this year.  I have the privilege of working with some of the best creators in the world, and for me successful studios all come down to great people, teams and ideas. We’re always looking for people who share our vision for the future of gaming, teams who have built games over years through both success and adversity, and ideas that become beloved games.

That’s why I’m honored today to announce our intent to acquire legendary game development studio Double Fine Productions.

Psychonauts 2 is currently still being published by Starbreeze Studios, and is due out some time this year. The game also will have a special panel and demo at E3.

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot Will Show Unexplored Stories of Secondary Characters

Published

 on

The luminary creator of the Dragon Ball manga, Akira Toriyama, shared new information about the upcoming action RPG, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot.

Via the Bandai Namco Twitter account, Toriyama revealed that Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot will depict the backstories of several secondary protagonists. This means that the game will diverge from the story of the manga and give greater insight into Dragon Ball‘s many supporting characters. While a plethora of games depict the events of the Dragon Ball franchise, only a few of them meaningfully expand upon the story’s events, characters, and world.

Toriyama describes Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot as a “fresh new take on the franchise.” Even though Toriyama rarely contributes to Dragon Ball games, he did create much of the lore in the now-defunct MMO Dragon Ball Online, which heavily influenced the story of the Dragon Ball Xenoverse games. While not much information is available about Kakarot and Toriyama’s involvement at this time, the title does have an early 2020 release date and a fishing mechanic.
