Nightly News Roundup

Castlevania film is being filmed right now!

Star Trek: The Next Generation star Michael Dorn (i.e.: Worf) has confirmed that the long-awaited Castlevania film is currently underway. Not only has it been green lit, but they’re actually filming it as we speak! (although it’s still not clear whether its Paul W. S. Anderson directing, James Wan, or someone else entirely)

In an interview with, Dorn said: “Castlevania is a movie that Marina Sirtis (Deanna Troi in Star Trek) got me involved with. It’s based on a video game. People have been trying to get this thing done for a long time and they finally got the producers together that want to do it. They finally got the OK from the owners, and so they’re doing it.

“It’s a fun little part. It’s four days, and I’m playing a werewolf that’s been around for a gajillion years who works for this vampire. It’s not too far from Worf because there’s a lot of killing and jumping and sword fights and everything. So that’s what I’m doing now, and I just got offered another movie that would start at the end of September.”

Sixteen minutes of brand new Project X Zone footage

Listen up, strategy RPG fans, because this is one video you don’t want to miss. Project X Zone, an upcoming strategy RPG for 3DS, will feature over 100 characters from Capcom, Namco Bandai and Sega’s long history of games, and as you’ll be able to see in the ginormous trailer below, there’s some incredibly familiar faces– Mega Man, Tekken’s Heihachi, Ulala from Space Channel 5, Ryu and Ken from Street Fighter, Jill and Chris from Resident Evil, Morrigan from Darkstalkers, Akira and Pai from Virtua Fighter, Dante from Devil May Cry, Frank West from Dead Rising, Arthur from Ghouls N Ghosts… The list goes on. Enjoy!

Assassin’s Creed III documentary

And if sixteen minutes of Project X Zone wasn’t enough, how about a twenty-five minute documentary on the highly anticipated Assassin’s Creed III?

Over the past month or so, “Inside Assassin’s Creed III” has been cropping up on Ubisoft’s YouTube page in a slow drip-feed of information, but now that all four episodes are up, we thought we’d share the goods.

The first episode looks at how many people it takes to create such a huge game. The second looks at combat, weapons and tactics used during the American Revolution, while the third instalment looks more specifically at our hero, Connor. The fourth and final part looks at how the game’s lovingly recreated every last detail of 18th century America.

Each one is crammed full of gameplay footage and behind the scenes nuggets, so sit back and enjoy!
