Sony Pictures Animation’s Upcoming Slate Sounds Amazing

/Film:

At the Annecy International Animation Film Festival, Sony Pictures Animation announced its intentions to diversify its slate of projects with some alternative animation for adults, and the beginning of a potentially valuable strategic partnership with China’s Tencent production banner.

Following the success of last year’s bold, unique Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Sony Pictures Animation wants to venture into less explored terrain on the animation front. This includes a reimagining of the Adult Swim series The Boondocks, a dimwitted superhero comedy series called Superbago, the anthology horror series Hungry Ghosts, and two feature films from Genndy Tartakovsky geared toward adult audiences called Black Knight and Fixed. Plus, the company is bringing in China to help out with Jackie Chan‘s animated family friendly project Wish Dragon.

I really want to see Black Knight.

Konami Announces The TURBOGRAFX-16 MINI

Ars Technica:

Konami may well have earned the “most surprising announcement of E3” trophy with Tuesday night’s unexpected reveal of the TurboGrafx-16 Mini (known as the PC Engine Mini in Japan and the PC Engine Core Grafx Mini in Europe).

Baffling.

Highlights from Nintendo’s E3 2019 Presentation

So, Nintendo went online yesterday at Noon Eastern to share the latest and greatest news and games for the Switch console coming this year and next.

It was a well received presentation (which you can watch here), which included the announcement of a proper sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild entering development and two additions to the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate roster in The Hero from Dragon Quest and the long-awaited return of Banjo & Kazooie (from Banjo-Kazooie) to Nintendo Consoles.

For me, though, the highlights came from three games not far from release – these new looks at the The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening remake, Luigi’s Mansion 3 and the delayed-into-2020 Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

In turn, I wanted to share their trailers here. Enjoy!
