New details on Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness shared, will be a Netflix series instead of a feature film

Let's hope it's binge-worthy!

Yesterday we shared the debut trailer for Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness, a collab between Netflix and Capcom. Original reports out of Japan said that the animation would be a film, but now we've learned that'll actually be a series.

Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield will be the stars of the show, which will have a horror-action vibe. The project will be supervised by Capcom’s Hiroyuki Kobayashi, a longtime producer on the Resident Evil series, and producer of the animated films Resident Evil: Degeneration, Resident Evil: Damnation, and Resident Evil: Vendetta. TMS Entertainment will produce the series, and Quebico will be in charge of the 3D CG animation production.

Yuji Naka says Balan Wonderworld is the result of Square-Enix giving him "one chance" to make a 3D platformer

Will it find success?

Balan Wonderworld is quite the oddity in today's day and age. 3D platformers used to be the bread-and-butter of the game industry back in the late 90s, but publishers shifted away from them years ago. The genre still has millions of fans, but new games in that style are few and far between. Seeing a major third party greenlight a 3D platformer in today's industry, outside of Nintendo, is pretty much unheard of.

As you may know, Square-Enix bucked that industry trend by announcing Balan Wonderworld. It's pretty interesting to see such a big third party give a 3D platformer the go-ahead, especially one like Square-Enix. The company is known for RPGs, yet they're allowing developer Yuji Naka to create his dream project.

Naka is pretty happy about that, as he shares in an interview with IGN. Naka knows a thing or two about platformers, and he also doesn't think he'd be a good fit for RPG creation.

"I think Square Enix has an RPG image, but I don't think I'd be good at making RPGs."

How on earth did Naka convince Square-Enix to pony up for a 3D platformer? Naka spoke to the company's president about his idea, and the president told him that this is his "one chance" to make the game happen. In other words, if Balan Wonderworld isn't a success, you can expect the IP to be one-and-done.

Nintendo takes home multiple "Excellency Awards" at the Japan Game Awards 2020, as well as the "Grand Award"

Big wins for the Big N

This year's Japan Game Awards have come to a close, and Nintendo has taken home a few more wins after snagging some awards yesterday.

The Japan Game Awards 2020 included an "Awards For Excellency" category, which includes 10 winners. Of those 10 games, one is given the Grand Award above all others. These 10 games were chosen by a Japan Game Awards panel, and were selection from 1,036 titles nominated by the Japanese public.

First off, let's get to the 10 titles in no particular order. Nintendo managed to land 4 games in the top 10.

- Ring Fit Adventure
- Persona 5 Royal
- Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield
- 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim
- Death Stranding
- Fire Emblem: Three Houses
- Monster Hunter World: Iceborne
- Yakuza: Like a Dragon
- Nioh 2
- Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Out of all the games in the top 10, it was Animal Crossing: New Horizons that took home the Grand Award. That makes for a back-to-back win for Nintendo, as they took home the Grand Award in 2019 for Smash Bros. Ultimate.
