Vogt-Roberts has officially signed on to direct the studio’s first-ever live-action feature film version of Gundam for Netflix, which will be based on the universe of Sunrise’s iconic Japanese robot franchise.This marks Legendary and Netflix’s latest collaboration together, the two companies previously worked on films such as 2016’s Spectral and last year’s Enola Holmes as well as shows like Lost in Space and Pacific Rim: The Black. They are also currently working on the anime series adaptation of Skull Island and Tom Raider.RELATED: Netflix’s Live-Action Cowboy Bebop Series Wraps Production!Plot details for the Netflix film are being kept under wraps but the original Gundam series is set in the Universal Century, an era in which humanity’s growing population has led people to emigrate to space colonies. Eventually, the people living in the colonies seek their autonomy and launch a war of independence against the people living on Earth. Through the tragedies and discord arising from this human conflict, not only the maturation of the main character but also the intentions of enemies and the surrounding people are sensitively depicted. The battles in the story, in which the characters pilot robots known as mobile suits, are wildly popular. The Gundam universe is replete with numerous storylines of love and conflict along with the popular Gundam battles, in which the characters operate robot suits called Mobile Suits.The live-action Gundam film will be penned by Brian K Vaughan. It will be produced by Vogt-Roberts with Vaughan set as executive producer. Legendary’s Cale Boyter will oversee the project along with the Sunrise creative team. The project was actually first announced in 2018 at the Anime Expo.RELATED: Sony & Netflix Ink First-Pay Streaming Licensing DealCreated by Hajime Yatate and Yoshiyuki Tomino, the franchise first started in 1979 with the TV series titled Mobile Suit Gundam.

    The Slormancer COMES IN Early Access Now

    The Slormancer by Slormite Studios (yep, you read that right) is currently obtainable in Early Access on Steam. If you’re fiending for the next ARPG game and so are searching for some lightweight pixel action in your entire day, this one could be what you’re searching for. Sure, it’s super pixelated but it’s got plenty of mechanics to activate with as you plug in stat points, boost your abilities, select a specialization for the core class, and bypass smashing skeletons along with other enemies. 

    Before we further go any, yes, it’s still in Early Access, but I understand how hard it really is to satiate the ARPG cravings once we all await Path of Exile 2, Diablo IV, and also Diablo II: Resurrected. There are many solid ARPGs to play now right, but aren’t we searching for a new one always? In the end, that loot isn’t likely to grind itself out…  Anyway, have a look at the trailer here and see if it’s something you could be thinking about.

    Yep. That’s a trailer. It’s got all of the underpinnings of ARPG greatness, including a zillion what to skill up, a great deal of abilities available, and plenty of loot to rip from elite bosses and enemies as you move from area to area. The city is under attack, and you’ve surely got to build it right back up, one townsperson at the right time. Will this unlock new things to perform also? Probably. I’ve only had the opportunity to get a short while under my belt up to now, but I’m enjoying the first game when i crush skeletons and grab low-tier loot. Something about enhancing my abilities by farming Slorm is special just, I assume. Yeah. Slorm. That’s an ordinary thing I assume. 

    As that is early access, an enormous chunk of the overall game isn’t even there yet, so that’s something to take into account in the event that you feel like getting back in on the action now.

    Does The Slormancer look interesting for you? Can you scan Steam for new early access games endlessly? Tell us in the comments!
