Evening Newsround, April 30: Terraria, Marvel Heroes, Gears of War DLC

It's Newsround time, which is just as well, since all everyone seems to talk about is those GTA V trailers. Looking good eh?

So what else is new today then?

Terraria Dated for PSN Europe

First up is news that Minecraft-esque survival RPG Terraria will launch on PSN from May 15.

The game will be priced at 11.99 GBP for PS3 following a rather large delay. The game has been on PC and Xbox 360 for quite a while, however PS Fans will wait no longer.

There is still no word on a date for PS Vita version.

Gear of War DLC out now

Marvel Heroes beta this weekend

Gazillion Entertainment is hosting an open beta for Marvel Heroes this weekend.

You can register here and an email with instructions will be sent out closer to the weekend. Players will be able to select various characters to take part in the beta.

The beta runs May 4 through until Monday, May 6.

Minor News (Just the headlines)

I thought Terraria was confirmed for the Vita? Or was the guy just spouting his mouth off to try and get a free dev kit from Sony? Either way his attitude basically convinced me to not support him at all. As for other news. Deus Ex has had a revised price of £25 for the Wii U. Was actually shopto that pointed this out, although seemingly no release date. Will bite at that price. Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures confirmed for current Nintendo consoles. Based on the Angry Video Game Nerd games. Looks to be hilarious with tons of homage moments. I'm calling Mr. Bucket to be the final boss. http://youtu.be/yLvhfvLU73Q Ex Rare's game Tengami confirmed for Wii U e-shop Nintendo confirmed Link To The Past, Super Ghouls n Ghosts, Mario 1-3 and Street Fighter 2 should appear on Virtual Console in next few weeks. Also probably the most important bit of news for today if you are a Nintendo fan. They basically confirmed we'll be Retro's current project in the next few weeks (E3?) So what do you think it may be? Metroid? Starfox? F-Zero? Donkey Kong? Something *Gasp* new?

I thought Deus Ex Wii U was due next week, in th US at least. I heard a rumour of F Zero U the other day, hopefully that's what Retro are working on.

Gutted that I have to wait to play blood dragon. I'll be postponing my Tomb Raider play through for it though. Can't wait.

Deus Ex Wii U £25 eh? Only about £20 more than the other versions are these days. Anyways, Terraria Vita confirmed a while back Joe. Later in the summer for release last I heard, but no concrete date yet. Blood Dragon looks excellent.

Well they did say there was a ton of extra content so I guess that justifies it. At least it's not £45 like Need for Speed is

Sorry worded that wrong. I mean't to say there's no word on a date for the Vita version.

"Well they did say there was a ton of extra content so I guess that justifies it. " - From the list of changes released, it appears there are is no actual new gameplay content in the game at all, just some tweaks and rebalances for content that already exists. Though I guess the inclusion of all the DLC kind of evens things out really.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
