Valkyria Chronicles 4 - Snow Cruiser Centurion trailer

Built in secret, the Edinburgh Navy constructed cruisers for use in battle. Three warships of the same model were built, and the Centurion, which Claude and the others embark on, is the second of the three. It can presumably move through fields of ice, and is equipped with a huge ram for breaking ice at the warship’s head. At over 230 meters in length, the Centurion is like a tank riding on ice as if striding across a stretched out crevasse. This giant warship’s ability to travel on land is thanks to technology given to Edinburgh by the United States of Vinland. Those details are country-level top secret.

SEGA says Sonic's upcoming film will present a "very unique and exciting vision"

Sonic is finally getting his own feature film in 2019. The movie is going to be a blend of live-action and CG, and that's pretty much all we know! Should Sonic fans be worried about a lackluster silver screen showing? In an intreview with ComicBook.com, Ivo Gerscovich, chief brand officer for Sonic the Hedgehog and senior vice president for Sega of America, says the blue blur is in good hands

CB: Why do you think it’s taken so long for Sonic the Hedgehog to hit the big screen? Was SEGA just waiting for the proper opportunity to bring him?

IG: Yes, we believed strongly that the Sonic brand needed to be treated in the right way. Having the opportunity to work with such an amazingly talented production team with such a strong track record (like the Fast and the Furious films and the Deadpool movie) made the decision an exciting one for SEGA to take.

CB: Do you feel that a combination of CGI/live-action is a good mix for a Sonic the Hedgehog film?

IG: The film-makers have a very unique and exciting vision in mind for the story, and we can’t wait to see how this blend of CGI/live action comes to life on the big screen!
