The Pokemon Company teases that a “shocking” new project Pokemon project of some sort will be announced next week. Unfortunately, it’s provided no indication as to what this project could be–it’s possible it won’t turn out to be a game–or what, exactly, makes it “shocking.”

This tease was made on the official Japanese Pokemon website (as translated by Siliconera). The announcement will be made during a live stream on Nico Nico next Tuesday, August 26, in collaboration with Japanese video game publication Famitsu. The stream will begin at 10 PM JST (6AM PDT/9AM EDT). Pokemon Company president Tsunekazu Ishihara will descend from his tower of money to make an appearance.

Among the Pokemon video game projects we know about right now are the Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire remakes headed to 3DS in November and the card game coming to iPad. Siliconera notes that, last year, a teaser image was shown at a Pokemon event that may have revealed a new game. The site also uncovered trademarks for two names–Pokken Fighters and Pokken Tournament–that may be related, though whether that is the case (or if that has anything to do with the upcoming announcement) is unclear for the time being.

Outside of the games themselves, there has been no shortage of Pokemon news recently, between the online merchandise store going live, an orchestral concert tour being announced, and the launch of a dedicated iTunes hub.

Considering the door is wide open as to what next week’s announcement could be, what would you most like to see–a 3D RPG for Wii U? A new Pokemon Snap? Something else entirely? Let us know in the comments below.

Codemasters’ Colin McRae Rally launched on Steam earlier this week for $ 6.99, but it’s probably not the game you’re hoping for.

Though the game’s description on Steam says it’s based on content from the 90 percent Metacritic rated Colin McRae Rally 2.0 originally released on the first PlayStation, it’s actually a port of the mobile version of the game released in 2013 (which has a Metacritic score of 69 percent).

The game’s trailer also says that it’s been “remastered for HD,” and that it includes “original cars and locations.” Add to that the fact that it only mentions the mobile version once in the “About the Game” section, and one could easily come to the wrong conclusion that he or she is buying an HD remake of the classic PlayStation game.

Besides offering a fewer number of cars to drive, the game’s controls and interface were clearly originally designed for smartphones, and so it doesn’t play like the game you remember.

The Colin McRae racing game series is still around today in the form of the DiRT series, which are quite good, and are also available to purchase on Steam.

Codemasters also recently released Grid Autosport for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. For more on that game, check out GameSpot’s review.

RedLynx, developer of the 2D platforming-racing game Trials Fusion, teased future plans for the game and detailed its first DLC pack today.

In an interview on the Ubisoft blog, Creative Director Antti Ilvessuo said that a cooperative multiplayer mode is coming to Trials Fusion. He didn’t explain this feature, but he did say, “Imagine playing Trials for your Teams, against other Teams on tracks and in tournaments and, in a little bit later down the road, online.”

He also hinted where you will be able to ride in future Trials Fusion content. “We are planning to take the world of Trials Fusion to places that no Trials game has gone before,” he said, “into the clouds, under the sea and even deep underground.”

Ilvessuo also provided some new details for the game’s first of six DLC packs. Called Riders of the Rustlands, the pack will take you to the outskirts of the futuristic city where the main game takes place. It launches on July 29.

The pack comes with a bunch of new tracks, challenges, and editor objects. It costs $ 4.99, but season pass holders can download it for free.

You can see the full list of what’s included below.

  • 5 new achievements/trophies
  • 10 new tracks
    • 6 classic Trials tracks
    • 2 new Supercross tracks (local multiplayer)
    • One new Skill Game (“Laws of Motion”)
    • One new FMX track (“The Gauntlet”)
  • 18 new Track Challenges, including tasks such as:
    • Infiltrate the Outsiders’ hidden base
    • Compete in a game show against penguins
    • Find more secret squirrels
  • New editor objects, including:
    • Steel pipe set
    • Wooden ramp set
    • Computer mainframes

Trials Fusion DLC is planned to be released until May 2015. Free content updates will come between the packs, so keep an eye on GameSpot for future details on upcoming content.

When Fusion launched in April, GameSpot thought that it was great. Riders of the Rustlands will be available on Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
