Disney Closes LucasArts & All Current Projects Have Been Cancelled
Disney, which acquired Lucasfilm and LucasArts last year in a $4.05 billion deal, has shut down the legendary LucasArts division.
“After evaluating our position in the games market, we’ve decided to shift LucasArts from an internal development to a licensing model, minimizing the company’s risk while achieving a broader portfolio of quality Star Wars games,” Disney informed Game Informer in a statement. “As a result of this change, we’ve had layoffs across the organization. We are incredibly appreciative and proud of the talented teams who have been developing our new titles.”

Bruised and battered after a long and intense fight, Doomsday has a brief moment to celebrate his victory over Superman. This is the moment in comic history I most associate with Doomsday.

While there are plenty of big budget titles hitting in 2013, one of the titles I look forward to most is Japan Studios “Puppeteer”.
Kutaro’s adventure is set to begin September 10th, 2013, but have you learned the backstory of how this amazing and fantastical tale all began? No you haven’t? Watch the Puppeteer Story Trailer now before the Moon Bear King finds out!
One dark moonlit night, a young boy named Kutaro was carried away by the maleficent Moon Bear King to a black castle where the unlucky lad was transformed into a puppet.
Kutaro displeased the terrible tyrant, who devoured the boy’s wooden head and cast away his body.
But the headless hero was not alone, for he had discovered a very special pair of scissors to help him on his harrowing adventure to find his head, and his way home.
