On July 28, the “New Nintendo 2DS XL” makes its debut in North America at a suggested retail price of $149.99. New Nintendo 2DS XL will launch on the same day as two big new games for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems: Hey! PIKMIN and Miitopia. For those that don’t use the 3D functionality on Nintendo’s 3DS family of systems or have recently lost, damaged, or donated their 3DS, this is the perfect opportunity to dive back in. Check out the video below.
After a lengthy drought, we’re finally hearing more about the live-action “Titans” series and the return of “Young Justice” from Warner Bros. What’s most interesting so far is that these projects will air on a DC focused digital streaming service.
Purely based on the attached art (above) that WB provided with the press release, it’s probably safe to say that “Titans” will be based on the legendary Marv Wolfman/George Perez era of the book. The series will be written by Akiva Goldsman (“Star Trek: Discovery,” “Underground”), Geoff Johns (President & Chief Creative Officer, DC Entertainment; “The Flash,” “Arrow”) and Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl”).
While little is known about the highly anticipated third season of “Young Justice” besides this new “Outsiders” subtitle, it’s easily the most attractive project from the fledgling streaming service. It also answers the question many fans had of where it will air as Cartoon Network infamously pulled the plug on the show years ago. Sam Register (“Teen Titans Go!,” “Justice League Action”) is executive producer of “Young Justice.” Brandon Vietti (“Batman: Under the Red Hood,” “Superman Doomsday”) and Greg Weisman (“Star Wars Rebels,” “Gargoyles”) are producers of the series, produced by Warner Bros. Animation. Emmy Award winner Phil Bourassa (“Young Justice,” “Justice League Dark,” “Teen Titans: The Judas Contract”) serves as the series’ art director.

Here’s the Ink Drop for this week’s new game releases. We’ve got some surprisingly big releases for this time of year as we see the long-awaited remaster of Double Fine’s (LucasArts’ at the time) point and click classic. Speaking of classics, Capcom’s Disney Afternoon collection is being digitally released with those old favorites DuckTales, Talespin, Darkwing Duck and more. Unfortunately, the collection doesn’t feature the amazing remix of DuckTales by WayForward from a couple of years back. Seriously, that’s worth hunting down. Lastly, Telltale Games is back with their take on Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. Just in time for the new movie, it’s already getting great feedback.
Take a look at this week’s full list, and chime in with what you’re checking out!
