Ghost of Tsushima Game Trailer

One of the most under utilized genres in gaming has to be the samurai era. So many amazing stories have been told throughout history all stemming from feudal Japan. However, it has been forever since we got a decent game that takes place in that era. Back in the day one of my favorite games for the original PlayStation was Tenchu: Stealth Assassin but the sequels were pretty much garbage. For the past few console generations I have hoped that a developer would take the reigns and create an awesome open world samurai game where you could visit different villages and engage in epic sword fights with other samurai. I don’t want to get my hopes too high but Ghost of Tsushima might just be that game we samurai fans have been waiting so long for.

Batman Anime Trailer and First look

So an new Batman anime movie is actually a thing and it looks pretty amazing. Our first taste of a Batman anime was all the way back in 2008 with Batman Arkham Knight, which was a compilation of short animations from different artists. It was released as a promotional project that coincided with the Batman: The Dark Knight movie. Personally I loved this idea and always wondered what it would be like to see batman in his own anime movie. Well wonder no longer Nerd Nation because an official Batman anime is coming and it looks awesome. The movie is titled Batman Ninja and we have the trailer and first look posted for you in a video below.

Blade Runner Black Out 2022 Anime

Blade Runner 2049 is set to hit theaters in just a couple of weeks on October 13. It is the sequel to the 1982 science fiction classic starring Harrison Ford. Some of you may be wondering how a movie from 1982 will connect to a movie being released in 2017. The answer to that question as well as many others is of course…Anime! That’s right an original anime short titled Blade Runner Blackout 2022 has been created to connect the events of the 2 feature films. This is actually one of 3 short films that has been produced for the Blade Runner saga and it is directed by Shinichiro Watanabe, the genius behind Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo.

Yamcha Finally Becomes a Hero?

For those of us that are Dragon Ball fans there are two usual reactions when we hear the name Yamcha. We either cringe or just start laughing. He isn’t known for being much of a force in the Dragon Ball series. In fact, he has been made into more of a joke thanks to some pretty hilarious internet memes. Well, all that might be about to change with the release of a new Dragon Ball manga mini-series. It’s titled Dragon Ball Gaiden: Tensei-shitara Yamcha Datta Ken or just Dragon Ball Gaiden for short and Yamcha finally gets to be the powerful hero that he has always wanted to be.
