Kingdom Hearts III keeps getting more beautiful with a new trailer

In the days leading up to E3, Square Enix has tossed us yet another tantalizing teaser of a video for the upcoming Kingdom Hearts III. This latest clip shows just how much work the developers are squeezing into this title; another video is expected on July 15th, 2017 during D23 Expo 2017, including a peek at a new world.

Sora dives into Olympus from the movie Hercules and instantly engages swarms of heartless, being able to lock on to multiple enemies and unleash a devastating attack. The battle with Lythos, the colossal rock titan, takes place under pouring rain where the water flows down the sheer cliffs akin to tears of joy. The graphics have gotten smoother, looking almost cinematic where the characters in the cut scenes are in focus while the backgrounds are softened. The user interface remains the same as in previous games, utilizing minimalism styles to focus on the action.

Unsurprisingly, a release date for Kingdom Hearts III was not mentioned in the video.

Cougars sneak into Port Moody Millennium Line station

While TransLink usually deals with human fare evaders, two cougars managed to bypass security and wander the tracks on the Evergreen extension of the Millennium Line on Friday morning. In the security footage below, TransLink stated in their Facebook post that the felines triggered the guideway intrusion alarm as they walked through the Inlet Centre station in Port Moody.

The late night visit took place just after 4:00 am PDT, well after transit service concluded for the day. Transit staff checked track-side fences and involved the BC Conservation Officers for assistance. Inlet Centre station sits below Barnet Highway and is not elevated.

Cat red-handed… A pair of cougars set off the intrusion alarm last night at Inlet Station on the Evergreen Extension. The meow-nificent pair were spotted on CCTV walking along the guideway through the station! Morning staff searched the line and were unable to find the animals before morning service began. We're not pawsitive how the duo gained access to the guideway, and we will be inspecting fencing along the line to ensure there are no holes or obvious ways for wildlife to get inside. All stations have closed circuit cameras which allow us to see what triggers intrusion alarms at any point. While this incident involving cougars is a first, it's not uncommon to see wildlife on the system. Our staff worked closely with Conservation Officers for guidance and will closely watch the station for signs of the clawver cats return. ^sk

Promotional artwork for the second season of Attack on Titan

It’s no joke, the long-awaited second season of Attack on Titan has a date: Saturday, April 1st, 2017. The colossal creatures who devour hapless humans will also stream for fans in North America through FUNimation on the same day.

In this upcoming season, we learn that the titans terrorizing the last of humanity have kept many other, never before seen monsters at bay, including the Sasquatch-like beast titan. With Eren Jaeger’s power to transform into one of these fearsome beings, he just may turn the tide against the female titan… Japanese rock band Linked Horizon returns to perform the opening theme (they recorded the two intro songs in the first season). Perhaps we’ll finally get to see what Eren Jaeger’s key unlocks…

Attack on Titan airs in Japan on Tokyo MX and on MBS.
