Today has been a great day for you if you’re into watching movie trailers, or video game trailers. A good trailer can either hype you up so much that you get super excited for a project, or be kind of a let down. In the case of these trailers, we can safely say we’re pretty excited about everything released. We had a good few drop in, and we thought we’d talk about each one briefly.
First up, we have the trailer for the long awaited 3rd and final installment of the Wolverine solo series called ‘Logan.’ This is not only the final outing for our favorite X-Man, but this is also set to serve as Hugh Jackman’s final outing as the popular character. This will be his 9th time appearing as this character on screen, and so far, this glimpse shows us he’s still got it. Hugh looks great as Old Man Logan, and it seems to have a western feeling to it. It’s great that it feels so different from all the other X-Men movies, and maybe that’s what will make it great. Logan is expected in March of 2017.
Moving onto the video game world, we have our first look at the highly anticipated sequel to Rockstar Games’ 2010 Old Western. Red Dead Redemption 2 shows us beautiful visuals of the old west. Not much of the story is given in this first look, it is a teaser after all, just announcing that the game does indeed exist and is being worked on. We’ll be looking forward to more news as it comes out, but this can hold us over for now. Red Dead Redemption 2 is slated for Fall of 2017, so we have a bit of a wait.
Keeping up with the video game news, we have an announcement from Nintendo. Not a new game, but a whole new console. Nintendo was rumored to be working on a new console dubbed the Nintendo NX. Today they have officinally unveiled it, and is now called Nintendo Switch. Reason being, you can switch from playing a game on your TV, and take your game on the go. It is a console, handheld hybrid, which is a great concept, and this first look shows great examples of how it can be used. Just thinking about a game like Pokémon being played on the handheld screen and then bringing it to your big screen TV sounds like an amazing idea. Hopefully we learn more about this guy and how it does the switching in the future. Nintendo has stated the console will be releasing in March of 2017.
What did you all think of the trailers? We’ll be talking about them in the podcast at later dates, but trust us when we say we are super excited for all of these announcements.
