Man of Medan the First of Five Dark Pictures Games in Active Development

Man of Medan

Supermassive Games has revealed that it already has four Dark Pictures Anthology games in development to follow Man of Medan later this year, as well as plans for more.

Speaking to the PlayStation Blog, Supermassive CEO and executive producer Pete Samuels said, “The first three [games] are well underway and the fourth and fifth are fairly well advanced from a narrative perspective.” He added that the team is already planning at least three more to follow.

Samuels also outlined a rough release schedule, saying that two entries should launch within any twelve-month window, suggesting that The Dark Pictures Anthology is a long-term venture for the team.

While all of the games will take place in the same universe, they will each bear unique characters, stories, themes, and horror subgenres. For Man of Medan, those genre cues will be ones “that you’d recognise from the home invasion subgenre, and some much more supernatural—even sci-fi horror.”

Furthermore, fans of the developer’s previous narrative horror game Until Dawn should be pleased, as Man of Medan is being developed by much the same team.

Man of Medan was recently announced for an August 30 release on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. One of the follow-ups may be called House of Ashes, though that is not yet confirmed.

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.
