The next instalment in the X-Men series of films, The Wolverine, has been kept very under wraps. All we’ve seen so far is some pictures of a Japanese prisoner of war camp (in Australia) and a very hairy looking Hugh Jackman. However 20th Century Fox have released the first official photo of The Wolverine in all his adamantium awesomeness.
The Wolverine, directed by James Mangold (3:10 To Yuma), is based around the 1982 limited comic book series by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller where Logan travels to Japan to engage a “mysterious figure from his past” (sound familiar?). This figure is Shingen Yashida played by Hiroyuki Sanada, a Yakuza crime boss.Hugh Jackman has spent a lot of time physically preparing for this role, taking advice from Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson who suggested that he eat around 6000 calories a day. While Wolverine doesn’t look like he has been eating that much he is definitely looking as bad ass a ever. It is set to be released on July 26, 2013. [IGN]

That busy vampire slayer Van Helsing is back for another round of monster slaughtering in a new indie title coming to PCs and the Xbox Live Arcade. Developed by Neocore Games, the action RPG stars the offspring of Dracula’s mortal enemy as he battles all manner of demonic beasts in 19th century Europe. Our hero is enlisted by past foes to help rid the land of Borgovia from a menacing force hell bent on destroying the city for an unknown but presumably dark purpose. That’s what demons do, right?
The developer is going with a strikingly dark gothic art style for the game, a style that is looking pretty good from the concept screens released so far. Game play mechanics, weapons etc are unknown so far but expect plenty of action and RPG elements to pop up. The game is expected to drop in Q4 2012 for PC and XBLA. We’re keeping our eyes on this new indie game, it could shape up to be a sleeper hit.
Hit the break to peep the press release and more of the concept art. Does it intrigue you, grab your attention? Dial in those comments if it does!
