Volition announced this week during its PAX Prime Panel in Seattle that Saints Row 4 will be getting a new expansion and a port on next-gen consoles next year.

Saints Row 4: Re-Elected is the definitive version of the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 version of the original game. It will be released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 27. All of the released DLCs, including the recently announced Gat Out of Hell will be included.

Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell is a new expansion of Saints Row 4 that will take players to hell. The game is a standalone expansion that will be available for $19.99.

According to Deep Silver, players will play as Johnny Gat. Those who have a friend to play the game with, a two-player co-op where the second person plays as Kinzie will be available.

With Gat Out of Hell taking place in Hell, the location is roughly 50 percent the size of Steelport. Players will be able to fly around the city using demonic wings, and the game features weapons themed after Biblical curses and stories- including a gun that fires a plague of locusts, plague of frogs and many more.

Both the Saints Row 4 port and expansion will be released on January 27.

Wii U Tops 7 Million Sold Worldwide

gamrFeed - Sat, 08/30/2014 - 16:50

The Wii U, the first eighth generation home console released, has sold more than seven million units worldwide. This figure makes it the second bestselling console, behind the PlayStation 4 and ahead of the Xbox One. It has taken the Wii U 21 months to reach this milestone.

Sales for the Wii U had been poor for most of the year with weekly sales of around 30,000 units for much of the year. However, since the release of Mario Kart 8 in May the console has remained above 50,000 units sold every week and has sold nearly one million units in three months.

There has been seven games that have sold more than one million units for the Wii U and more than 28 million games sold at retail. The bestselling game is New Super Mario Bros. U which has sold 4.18 million units. Nintendo Land has sold 3.10 million units, Mario Kart 8 2.58 million units, Super Mario 3D World 2.23 million units, New Super Luigi U 1.70 million units, Wii Party U 1.34 million units, and The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD 1.04 million units.

The Importance of Marketing Bayonetta 2 - Article

gamrFeed - Sat, 08/30/2014 - 16:23

Nintendo’s marketing for its Wii U console has been met with little positivity thus far.  One of the biggest impediments to the system establishing its identity early on was that many people thought that the Gamepad was merely an add-on peripheral for the original Wii console.  Nintendo has made strides to rectify this problem, but many would still agree that their advertising regarding software remains scarce. 

Mario Kart 8’s promotion earlier this year, including plentiful TV ads, a free game offer, and even a McDonald’s campaign, was certainly a step in the right direction, but Nintendo needs to keep the momentum going forward.  Aside from their big holiday title, Super Smash Bros., no upcoming game for Wii U this year is in more need of a proper advertising campaign than Platinum Games’ Bayonetta 2.

Back in September of 2012, the internet exploded when Nintendo announced that Bayonetta 2, the sequel to the original Xbox 360/PlayStation 3 title, was officially a Wii U exclusive.  The first Bayonetta sold just over 2 million copies between both consoles and seeing as how so many vocal fans of the original game lamented the sequel’s existence on a console that some of them never intended on purchasing, it’s safe to say that the series has amassed a pretty passionate fan base.  This presents an added challenge for Nintendo to not only advertise the mature-rated title accordingly, but also successfully lure the game’s established fan base over to Wii U.
