While there's no new Assassin's Creed game this year to tide over fans, Titan Comics is doing everything it can to keep fans satisfied with its growing line of comics based around the video game series. Next year, Titan merges its current Assassin's Creed ongoings --- Assassins and Templars --- into one series starring characters from throughout the franchise's rich history.

The NES instruction manuals weren't just simple how-to-play diagrams. They were also tasked with telling the story of the game, describing the enemies, and even providing maps to players who could get lost wandering around Hyrule. And today, Nintendo has put 30 classic NES manuals online, including classic titles like the Super Mario Bros and Legend of Zelda, Mega Man 2, Castlevania, and more.
Back in 2015, Telltale Games announced a partnership with Marvel Comics to adapt some of the publisher's characters into new video games in the Telltale mold. While things have been relatively quiet on that front over the 18 months, we did always know the effort was targeting a 2017 release. We still had no idea what that property could have been, but we did know when it might be coming at least. In that same time, Telltale has gone on to continue its Walking Dead series and add Batman to its stable.
Now thanks to a recent release from SAG-AFTRA, we might have an even better of what characters might step into one of Telltale's adventures next. As it turns out, 2017 might not just be a great year for Guardians of the Galaxy on the big screen, they may be getting a full-fledged video game to boot.
In honor of the caped crusaders of the convention scene, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), an ongoing collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into a super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.
This week's selection of the best cosplay ever includes the Fantastic Four, Dr Jones, Chrono Trigger, Mysterio and more.
This week, in a departure from the usual format, we're adapting a classic video game, Nintendo's flagship franchise Super Mario Bros. This adaptation looks primarily at the premise of the first game. Mario and Luigi are NYC plumbers who happen upon a portal into the Mushroom Kingdom, and then join the fight against Bowser and his Koopas.
Nekron is back and trying to takeover the universe with zombies again, and this time it's up to you to stop him. Fortunately you have a vast army of DC heroes and villains on your side. That's the score in DC Legends, a strategy game available today for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Google Play for Android Devices.
Because video game movies are becoming the new superhero movies, we’re getting a Sonic the Hedgehog film. And who better to develop it than Tim Miller, who recently has some unexpected time on his hands since quitting the Deadpool sequel. He won’t be directing, though — it’ll be Jeff Fowler, his Blur Studios colleague, who will be making his directorial debut with this film
Few games have brought the world of Star Wars to life quite like Star Wars Battlefront. DICE's most recent entry in the franchise is arguably one of the most beautiful games of the past year, let alone one of the best-looking Star Wars video games. It's fitting then that Hot Toys, purveyor of some of the best-looking Star Wars figures, would take the chance on bringing some of those Battlefront characters to life in toy form.
Rather than focus on the more familiar faces of the original Star Wars trilogy however, Hot Toys has honed in on crafting some of the best Stormtrooper figures money can buy. After already releasing a figure based on Battlefront's Shocktrooper, the Hong Kong company has now turned its detail-oriented eye to the Jumptrooper.
Everyone loves trivia about their favorite animated features and series, but with over 100 years of animation history behind us right now, there’s always some new obscure fact to learn. That’s why ComicsAlliance is going deep into the minutiae of your favorite names in cartoons in this continuing video series. You think you know cartoons? Well, here’s a few things you might not know!
This week we're taking a look at Dungeons & Dragons, the highly popular cartoon adaptation of TSR's beloved system of tabletop gaming.
After establishing the tone of the new Batman Universe as it exists in Telltale's Batman: The Telltale Series in the first episode, the adventure has taken an even darker turn leading up to the third installment, "New World Order." Previously, we'd seen Bruce Wayne learn that maybe his parents weren't as beyond reproach as he believed, and learn that the crime families in Gotham were working hand-in-hand with the Waynes for a better future. You don't have to look far to see how well that worked out for everyone involved, particularly when it comes to the Waynes.
The launch trailer for the new chapter --- arriving tomorrow --- keeps the spiral spinning downward for the young Dark Knight, and Batman will have to face off against the Children of Gotham to protect his city. He'll also have to deal with some ramifications from Harvey Dent's mayoral bid... at least what remains of it and Harvey's face anyway.
