Immortals Fenyx Rising Revealed At Ubisoft Event; Godzilla vs Kong Costumes Spotted At Walmart

Updated: Sep 19, 2020

Update (09/19/20): I deleted segment talking about a Gamera game being announced at Tokyo Game Show. As it turns out, there is a company called Gamera Game. If you heard of the game RIME that is one of the games this company made. When I saw Gamera Game on the TGS2020 schedule I literally thought of a new game featuring Gamera and that was not the case. So I am sorry for the false info.

As we get closer to the end of 2020, we are beginning to see what the rest of the year is going to look like. As you know, any news for Godzilla vs Kong has been very dismal. Last time there was news for the movie the first wave of toys were released at Walmart. With October being just around the corner costumes for Godzilla and Kong made by Rubie's Costume Co. (whom are known for making the inflatable costumes) have been spotted at Walmart. Also, Ubisoft revealed their Zelda-like title, Immortals Fenyx Rising, at the Ubisoft Forward online event. So I will be taking a look at those and more.

Immortals Fenyx Rising Revealed At Ubisoft Event:

Ubisoft had a presentation yesterday called Ubisoft Forward and the first game presented that was presented is Immortals Fenyx Rising. This game was revealed at E3 2019 under the previous title, Gods and Monsters, and was originally set to release on February 25, 2020 on all console platforms and on PC.

The game is being acclaimed as Ubisoft's version of Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild meaning the game will be open world with lots of places to explore and discover. There are shrines, puzzles, and special abilities similar to what you would find in Breath of the Wild. You play as Fenyx who was prophesied to save the home of the Greek Gods, Isle of the Blessed, from a Titan called Typhon. Fenyx must stop Typhon from destroying Isle of the Blessed and save the Greek Gods from a dark curse.

This looks like a game that I may check out. I am not a fan of Ubisoft, but they have played some of their interesting titles like Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle, Peter Jackson's King Kong, and both South Park: The Stick of Truth and South Park: Fractured, But Whole. If it is like Breath of the Wild then I can see myself having fun playing. Breath of the Wild is one of the most popular games to have released by Nintendo. I do love games where I can take my time to run around and explore without walls or barriers to guide me. If Immortals has me hooked then I expect to be ignoring the Super Mario 3D All-Stars game for a few months.

Immortals Fenyx Rising launches on December 3rd, 2020 for all platforms (XBox Series X/S, Playstation 5, Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4, XBox One, PC, and Google Stadia).

PlayMates Toys Updates Website:

Back in July, Walmart started selling the first wave of the Godzilla vs Kong toys and I have done reviews for them if you want to check them out in the "Review" section. The gist of it, though, is that the toys were hit and miss. I love the Kong w/ Battle Axe and Skull Crawler figures, the giant Godzilla and Kong figures were okay at best, and the other two Godzilla toys were skippable. Just recently, PlayMates Toys updated their website adding a section for Godzilla vs Kong.

Currently, it just lists all of the toys that are out on Walmart's shelves right now. However, I can see them updating the website slowly adding more toys to the list revealing more monsters as we get closer to the movie's release. Imagine using PlayMate's website as a way to find new info and suddenly a new toy is added to the list. It's good for some people that want to know everything about the movie just consuming spoilers like it's go
