The trailer also gives new hints to the storyline and showcases gorgeous visuals, and new gameplay elements.

When it comes to Disney and mobile apps, there are pretty much two things you can rely on: first is that there is almost always at least one tie-in app/game for a movie; second is that Disney Digital Books has consistently been releasing near flawless apps that go well above and beyond expectations. ‘Big Hero 6: Baymax Blast‘ betrays neither of these. In fact, I would go as far as to suggest that reading this review would be a mistake as it will take away from potential play time. Nonetheless, here it is.
Bandai Namco today announced the upcoming worldwide launch of ‘Star Wars: Battle Pod,’ a high-speed arcade game set in the Star Wars galaxy. Featuring arcade-exclusive gameplay on a unique dome screen enveloping your entire area of sight, ‘Star Wars: Battle Pod’ will first be available with a U.S. launch in January 2015 at participating arcades around the country. For those in the New York City area who don’t wish to wait to check out the game, it will be on display at Dave and Buster’s in Times Square through November 2.
In honor of New York Comic-Con, Square Enix has released a new trailer titled ‘Introducing the Magic’ for the upcoming HD compilation,’Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX,’ which showcases the origins of the beloved ‘Kingdom Hearts’ series, which you can find embedded below.
As the sequel to ‘Kingdom Hearts 1.5 ReMIX,’ the new trailer offers fans a run-through of timeless highlights, scenarios and gameplay from ‘Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix’ and ‘Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep Final Mix, ‘as well as cinematics from ‘Kingdom Hearts Re:coded.’ All three games are re-rendered with HD graphics and new visual upgrades that bring these classic titles to life on the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.
Though it enjoyed a quite limited release in the Czech Republic, the once-promised PC version of ‘Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two ‘ failed to make it onto the shelves anywhere else in the world, least of all the United States.
Like Oswald, however, the title was gone — but not forgotten — and has now emerged as part of an entire collection of games Disney Interactive has released via the Steam community. ‘Epic Mickey 2‘ is one of more than twenty titles that were just recently released on Steam with more titles on the way. To celebrate the releases, all Disney Steam titles are 10% off through this weekend, so ‘Epic Mickey 2′ can be had for $17.99 (regular price, $19.99).
