Need For Speed
Featuring Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul, Need for Speed is a story of how Tobey Marshall, a convicted felon, gets his revenge in a cross-country race against the wealthy businessman who framed him for a federal crime. The movie, though having a different storyline than the successful racing video game franchise Need for Speed, is based off the intense racing depicted in the game through a real world concept. The movie also features numerous expensive cars including the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento and Mercedes-Benz McLaren, as seen in the latest game Need for Speed:Rivals.
With a 95 percent ‘want to see’ rating on Rotten Tomatoes, a movie critiquing website, the muscle car cross-country racing film is sure to be the next best successor in the popular title.
The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Warriors
Serving as one of the games in the Legend of Zelda Franchise, Hyrule Warriors is the next installment and is being released for the Wii U this summer. Although the storyline of Hyrule Warriors is not a continuation of the preceding games such as Skyward Sword and Twilight Princess, the spinoff is loaded with more intense high definition fighting tactics while still preserving weapons used in past games such as Hero’s Bow, Hylian Shield and the Master Sword.
Not much information has been released regarding the upcoming game according to Nintendo’s E3 conference, however previews of its graphics and gameplay show its success so far in the development process.
