Also, Bombing Bastards is 28% off, and I wanted to put this name in the title so badly, but I doubt the management would go for it. See the full details in Nintendo’s press release below.

Nintendo formally announced today the coming of the next title in the Pokemon Mystery Dungeon series, Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon, available in physical and digital form for your 3DS in the winter of 2015. Nintendo stated “In Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon, players will battle alongside Legendary and Mythical Pokémon to save the world in a sweeping tale of adventure and mystery.”

Mystery Dungeon is a series of roguelike games featuring randomly generated dungeons. It was once a Japan-exclusive, but then when they started adding Pokemon to the mix, it took off internationally. There have been several Pokemon Mystery Dungeon games released since then. And as the logo says, this one is the SUPER one.

Wait……Winter of 2015? So it’s going to be released three months in the past? This is what the press release said and what the media is reporting. Normally when you hear “winter release” the first three months of a year are being implied. There isn’t much winter left within the remainder of 2015. It’s either a typo or they mean December 2015. If it IS a typo, then they mean January or February of 2016. Either way, the dates are close enough to give you the information you need. Expect it sometime when the weather gets cold again.

George Romero’s 15-issue graphic novel published by Marvel Comics entitled “Empire of the Dead” is slated to get a possible television series. No further announcement was made as to which network would televise the adaptation – where the “Empire of the Dead” is populated by a vampire/zombie mix – or what year it would air [though 2016 seems to be the most likely].

Romero, of course, is widely recognized as being responsible for starting the zombie film/television genre with his cult classic “Night of the Living Dead” feature film in 1968.
