Twenty years ago, from a coffin submerged beneath a gloomy lake, a mysterious woman awoke.
Unable to recall her past, or even her own name, only a single memory of her unknown origin was left impressed upon her: the horrifying “witches’ power” to summon forth ferocious demons and annihilate the servants of heaven.
Returning to life in the modern world after centuries of absence, Bayonetta followed the clues of her hazy memories, eventually reaching the remote European city of Vigrid. Unimpeded by the countless legions of angels assailing her… Fateful meetings drawing out lost memories…
What lies in wait for Bayonetta…?
Since the late 20th century, the precipitous pace of population rise on Earth pushed the total number of humans on the planet past 10 billion. The lack of consumable food and energy for this expanding population led to numerous wars over depleting natural resources. It was in this period of fear, uncertainty, and doubt that America placed her hopes in the skies with the SC-01 Providence space colony.
The colony was not immune to social evils that had become prevalent on earth. The Order of the Russian Star, a faction of the Russian military who had taken power in their homeland via coup d’état, immediately launched a surprise invasion of the colony. They began work converting the microwave energy array into a powerful weapon in the skies, then unleashed this fearsome power upon the residents of San Francisco. The Order’s declaration of war via weapon of mass destruction complete, they demanded the unconditional surrender of the United States within 10 hours, under penalty of the destruction of New York City.
In steadfast refusal to cooperate with aggressors, the President had no choice but to order a military strike to annihilate the invaders and recapture the colony. The strike was to be led by Lt. Col. Robert Burns.
DARPA operative Sam Gideon has also been assigned to the mission with an advanced weapons prototype.

Rejoice Xbox fans, because you will be able to play all the Kingdom Hearts games on your Xbox. Announced at Microsoft X019 London, an event dedicated to Microsoft projects and Xbox games, all the Kingdom Hearts games are heading towards Xbox One. Kingdom Hearts III is the first Kingdom Hearts game to be on Xbox One, but now fans of the series can experience the epic saga of all nine past games. In 2020, fans can buy Kingdom Hearts 1.5 + 2.5 HD ReMIX and Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue for Xbox One. Originally, these games were exclusive for PS3 and PS4.
Another exciting news is that if you are debating on getting Kingdom Hearts III for either PS4 or X1, Square Enix is giving fans the chance to play a demo of Kingdom Hearts III. This decision was made by executive producer Ichiro Hazama. This demo will be for PS4 as well and this will help newcomers decide if KHIII is worth it. The demo includes the Toy Box and Mount Olympus World.
Does this make you want to play Kingdom Hearts? In 2020, you will be able to play Kingdom Hearts 1 or 2 on the Xbox. I wonder if we’ll get a Switch version of all Kingdom Hearts games.

It looks we’re going to hit some bumps on the road because I got some surprising news to share.
The anticipated remastered collection game Spyro Reignited Trilogy won’t be coming out this September, but instead it will be out this November 13th of this year. According to game developers “Toys For Bob”, the game needs some “love and care.”
Co-head of Toys For Bob Paul Yan commented on this news on the Activision blog:
“We’re deeply committed to getting these games right, so we’ve decided to move the release date of Spyro Reignited Trilogy to November 13, 2018. I really hoped that you would be rescuing dragons and scorching Rhynocs sooner, but the Trilogy needs more love and care. In November when you’re exploring the Dragon Realms, Avalar and the Forgotten Worlds, we know you’ll agree the extra time was worth the wait.”
What do you think about this news?
Spyro Reignited Trilogy will now be releasing on November 13th, 2018 for PS4 and Xbox One.
