January 5, 2013

Welcome back to Rocket Chainsaw’s Daily Gaming News, where we’re ringing in the new year with (you guessed it) even more news! News doesn’t take a vacation, after all, and 2013 brings us a whole lot of big games to look forward to. Not to mention, maybe even a new console or two. So, sit back and relax as we kick off a fresh year of gaming news.


  • NEWS: Namco Bandai’s upcoming anime fighter, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3, has been dated for Australia. Fans of the orange ninja will be able to pick up his latest outing for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on the 8th of March. First run copies of the game will include a code for downloading a special costume for Naruto, based on Goku from Dragon Ball Z.
  • NEWS: Following in the footsteps of the upcoming Ouya console, a new Kickstarter project called GameStick recently popped up. The GameStick console is being designed as the world’s smallest game console, a handheld sized device that can be connected to a TV by an HDMI connection. Like the Ouya, it runs on Google’s Android OS. The project was fully funded in just 30 hours, and still has 27 more days to go.
  • VIDEO: With the new Devil May Cry game’s release date very close, Capcom have released a fancy new CG trailer for the game. It offers an interesting glimpse at the twisted world that Dante finds himself in. The game will be available for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC on the 15th of January.

  • NEWS: Crytek are optimistic about the future of the Crysis series, and although the current trilogy will end with Crysis 3, we might just see the franchise take a turn away from the FPS genre in future. Crysis-themed RTS, anyone?
  • NEWS: Meanwhile, Microsoft have released the official box art for Gears of War: Judgment. It’s pretty much what you’d expect.
  • VIDEO: Namco Bandai have also released a new trailer, for Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3. They’ve revealed more of the story line, and also that every tailed beast will be playable, along with various other new characters.
