Ubisoft has announced that The AbleGamers Charity is the first non-profit organization to kick off Rainbow Six Siege‘s Sixth Guardian Program. The studio said more in-game bundles supporting different non-profits will be available in the future.
The bundle includes a uniform, weapon skin, charm, and headgear emblazoned with the orange, white, and grey AbleGamers branding. It’ll be available in the in-game store at the start of Year 5 Season 4 and 100% of the proceeds, with a minimum of $6 per bundle sold, go directly to the charity.
AbleGamers’ director of peer support Steve Spohn said the charity is “thrilled to have the ranks of the Rainbow Six community” supporting its cause.
The critically acclaimed SquareEnix The World Ends With You video games series is getting an anime movie produced by Square Enix, DOMERICA, and Shin-Ei Animation, that’s set to release in April of 2021. Fan favorites Neku, Shiki, Beat, Rhyme, and Joshua are all featured in the new trailer, so check it out below.
Those that are uninitiated with the story, The World Ends With You takes place in a fictional version of the famous Shibuya shopping district in Tokyo. While everyday life goes on in the Realground–the RG–the chosen dead are brought to an alternate plane of existence called the Underground—the UG–which is also the venue for the Reapers’ Game.
The main story follows Neku over the course of the three weeks that he plays the Game, paired with partners Shiki, Joshua, and Beat for each week, respectively. As he develops friendships with his partners, he starts to understand the rules of the Game.
NEO: The World Ends With You is a 3D action-RPG title, and its official description notes that players will be stepping into the shoes of ‘Rindo’ this time around, as they “unravel the mysteries of the deadly Reaper’s Game” in a stylized Shibuya.
You can check out a trailer for the game below, and an official website for the new game has also been launched.
This is the first true 3D game in the series following the 2007 original, which was ported to modern consoles in 2018. As well as exploring the sights of Shibuya, players will “fight monsters alongside their ally companions in fast-paced action battles, and complete missions as they seek to change the fate they’ve been handed.”
The trailer introduces a number of new characters including a high-school friend of Rindo’s called Fret and a college student peer called Nagi. There’s also a mysterious hooded fellow, who looks ripped right out of Kingdom Hearts, called Minamimoto.
