Daily Checkpoint – Clash of Karts, Turtle Power, God of What?

Miss today’s stories? Good thing you’ve hit the checkpoint.

  • Sony Santa Monica Studio has teased a very brief clip of their next game. The clip was posted on a variety of social media and message boards. Whatever it is, it sure doesn’t look like a new God of War. It could be an entirely new franchise, or a very well done misdirection for God of War 4, the series the studio is known for. We won’t have to wait long, it will very likely be revealed this weekend at the PlayStation Experience.
  • According to the Austrailian Classification Board, Activision is publishing another Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game. The game is supposedly being developed by Platinum Games (Bayonetta 2) and is titled Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan. No official announcement has been made by Activision or Platinum Games.
  • A new season of characters are coming in 2016 for Mortal Kombat X and the first of the new fighters will be announced at The Game Awards this Thursday. This news comes from Twitter via Ed Boon himself, the series creator of Mortal Kombat.
  • Mario Kart 8 will be having a one hour competition called “Clash of Karts: Mario Kart 8” on the Disney XD channel this Saturday, December 5th. The competition will consist of four two-person teams of teenagers alongside several YouTube personalities. This is Disney XD’s second dip into the eSports arena. Back in October the Nintendo World Championships 2015 (taped in June) was broadcast of the channel.
  • The Game Awards are this Thursday and more details are coming out on what to expect from the show. The Twittersphere was ripe today with announcements including Mortal Kombat characters, Far Cry Primal footage and new Quantum Break content. There will be many more announcements during the show that are still a surprise, so make sure to check back here during the show and follow along with our live blog to keep up with it all.
