New frESHlook | Assassination Classroom and More
Games and anime: they make up the core of this week's frESHlook and that's a very good thing.
Remember that my ratings are only my initial impressions. They are subject to change once I've seen it.
This one's a bit tricky. while the game Atlas Reactor isn't a VR title, there is a VR viewer available on STEAM that lets you check out all the characters (freelancers), including their skins and styles. Now, I'm not sold on VR just yet, and I'm even less of a fan of turn-based games (even if they are simultaneous turn) but the style of Atlas Reactor is gorgeous. The light system makes the majority of the playing field vibrant, and allows you to see the character detail and animations well.
The game is currently in closed beta, but you can check out a trailer for it here.
If you haven't had a chance to check out Assassination Classroom anime, take this opportunity to change that. You can watch it on Hulu right now – both season 1 and 2 – to learn all about Nagisa and class 3-E at Kunugigaoka Junior High School. Then take a peek at some art from the upcoming spinoff series here.
Attack On Titan
Attack on Titan doesn't need much of an intro these days. If you enjoy sci-fi in the least little bit, you've heard of the live action movie, or the anime series that has most of the fandom waiting anxiously for a follow up season. And if by some chance you aren't aware of either of those Titan related projects, you've heard of the video game.
Here's a bunch of art from the Attack Titan video game to give you an idea of what protecting Wall Maria will be like when it releases on August 30th here in the US.
