With countless meta strategies available, every game offers a unique experience, ensuring that no two games are ever the same. 

Fans of TFT on PC as well as mobile gamers across APAC will now be able to register their interest for the launch of TFT Mobile through the pre-registration microsite and their local Google Play Store from today onwards. More news will be released about pre-registration for players on the App Store and in Vietnam at a later time.

This impending launch marks the introduction of Riot’s third self-published mobile title in APAC, joining Legends of Runeterra and League of Legends: Wild Rift in its stable of mobile game offerings.

Designed with mobile gamers in mind, TFT Mobile will offer features and systems optimized for mobile devices, along with cross-play between the PC and mobile versions.

Pre-registration Rewards

Players who pre-register for TFT Mobile from today onwards can look forward to a plethora of in-game rewards, including highly sought-after items that will be available to claim when the game finally launches in the region. 

Additionally, players can earn group rewards such as Star Shards, once various pre-registration milestones are hit, making the road to launch a truly community effort. 

All these attractive rewards will be revealed at a later time! Players can track the progress of these launch milestones on the TFT Mobile pre-registration microsite.

Luxury Watch Brand Collabs With The Gran Turismo Movie ]]> Fri, 18 Aug 2023 04:31:13 +0000 Watch and cars.

The post Luxury Watch Brand Collabs With The Gran Turismo Movie first appeared on Kakuchopurei.]]>
Tag Heuer has announced a collaboration with Sony Pictures’ Gran Turismo.

The movie ‘GRAN TURISMO: BASED ON A TRUE STORY’ is based on the unbelievable true story of a team of unlikely underdogs – a struggling working-class gamer, a failed former racecar driver, and an idealistic motorsport executive. Together, they risk it all to take on the most elite sport in the world. ‘GRAN TURISMO: BASED ON A TRUE STORY’ is an inspiring, thrilling, and action-packed story that proves that nothing is impossible when you’re fueled from within.

Inspired by Monaco watches in the early 1970s, this TAG Heuer Monaco is the original square-shaped icon. A chronograph full of charisma, made to be unique. This powerful design has left a long legacy, and is now offered on a distinctive steel bracelet: a rallying sign for the rebellious. The watch costs RM31,400 (official website here).

Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 3 Unveils First Gameplay Trailer ]]> Thu, 17 Aug 2023 20:01:12 +0000 More like a cinematic trailer, though.

The post Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 3 Unveils First Gameplay Trailer first appeared on Kakuchopurei.]]>
Activision and Sledgehammer Games have released a new gameplay reveal trailer for Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 3 or Call Of Duty Modern Warfare III. It is slated to launch for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC on 10 November 2023.

Building on the legacy of the Modern Warfare series, Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 3 is the direct sequel to the record-breaking Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 2. Players will experience a rich and immersive campaign with unprecedented player choice, picking up directly after Modern Warfare 2, all-new open-world Zombies set on the largest Call of Duty Zombies map ever, and one of the greatest collections of Modern Warfare multiplayer maps ever assembled, both fan favourites and all new ones.

All 16 launch maps from the original Modern Warfare 2 (2009) have been modernized with new modes and gameplay features and will be available at launch. For the first time in Call of Duty‘s history, a vast amount of content from the previous Modern Warfare II game will transfer—or “carry forward”—and be available in the next Modern Warfare title. All weapon and Operator content that has been previously unlocked or is currently available to players in Modern Warfare II, will carry forward between Modern Warfare II and Modern Warfare III.

Modern Warfare III expands the universe for players, with much more to come in post-launch plans, including over 12 new core six-versus-six maps that will fuel post-launch live seasons and new Call of Duty: Warzone and Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile experiences when it launches.

Check out the trailer below:

ASUS Unveils Exclusive Vivobook S 15 OLED BAPE Edition ]]> Thu, 17 Aug 2023 15:10:56 +0000 Sleek and powerful.

The post ASUS Unveils Exclusive Vivobook S 15 OLED BAPE Edition first appeared on Kakuchopurei.]]>
ASUS has unveiled the Vivobook S 15 OLED BAPE Edition, a collaboration with renowned streetwear fashion brand, A BATHING APE (BAPE). The dedicated launch event was streamed online, and this limited-edition laptop is set to captivate streetwear enthusiasts and tech-savvy individuals alike. It’s the first-ever laptop bundle to feature an exclusive BAPE camo pattern.

Vivobook S 15 OLED BAPE Edition offers a truly unique and sought-after aesthetic, with never-before-seen patterns inspired by the iconic BAPE camouflage design. Available in two captivating colourways, green camo and blue camo, the pattern adorns not only the laptop but also the accompanying accessories, which include a figurine, a mouse, a carry bag, and a set of stickers. This comprehensive bundle truly captures the essence of the distinctive BAPE style.

As well as boasting an eye-catching appearance, the Vivobook S 15 OLED BAPE Edition is also an Intel Evo-certified powerhouse, with up to a 13th Gen Intel Core i9-13900H processor and with 16 GB of LPDDR5 memory and a stunning 2.8K 120 Hz OLED display, this laptop ensures a visually immersive and responsive experience. Its long-lasting 75 Wh battery empowers users to accomplish their tasks with ease, no matter where they are, while exuding a remarkable sense of style.

Lenny Lin, Business Development Manager, ASUS Malaysia, said:

“We are thrilled to announce the exceptional partnership between ASUS Vivobook and A BATHING APE® — a collaboration that embodies the spirit of streetwear and pushes the boundaries of design. This marks the debut of both the first-ever BAPE® laptop and the first-ever streetwear-inspired laptop to our Vivobook series,”

BAPE added:

“BAPE is delighted to team up with ASUS Vivobook to design a limited-edition collection that combines BAPE®’s unique and vibrant style with ASUS Vivobook’s powerful and high-performance laptops. This partnership shows BAPE®’s dedication to providing high-quality and fashionable products that enhance style.”

The limited-edition Vivobook S 15 OLED BAPE Edition bundle is available in two colourways: a blue bundle with a Cool Silver laptop, and a green bundle with a Midnight Black model, both featuring a metallic lid that sports an intricate BAPE x ASUS-designed photo-light-etched linear camo pattern. There’s also a reflective logo tag, which gives the laptop a discrete and premium touch. Taking the design to another level, the laptop itself features exclusive BAPE design elements on the touchpad, the bottom of the device and the palm rest area.

Vivobook S 15 OLED BAPE Edition also comes with an exclusive accessory bundle patterned in blue camo for the Cool Silver model or green camo for the Midnight Black model. This captivating camo design — specially created for this collaboration — embodies a perfect fusion of timeless aesthetics and playful charm. At its core, it features the classic BAPE ABC camo pattern, renowned for its enduring appeal and versatility. To infuse a delightful twist into the design, BAPE® has introduced the beloved BABY MILO Friends characters, injecting a sense of joy and whimsy.

Also seamlessly integrated into the pattern is the ASUS Vivobook name, showcasing a harmonious blending of both brands’ identities. And to top it all off, there’s the iconic BABY MILO holding a Vivobook, serving as a reference to the product itself. There’s also a compact mouse with interchangeable top covers: each bundle has one black cover and either a blue or a green cover, depending on the chosen colorway. The black cover showcases a mystic and cool style that perfectly complements the special pattern of the laptop. The blue and green versions align with the themed colours of the carry bag, while a handy strap allows for easy portability.

The bundle is topped off by BABY MILO himself, in the form of a unique and adorable BABY MILO figurine that’s the secret highlight of the bundle. This figurine is exclusive to this BAPE Edition bundle and depicts BABY MILO carrying a Vivobook BAPE Edition laptop.
Vivobook S 15 OLED BAPE Edition goes beyond just a standard laptop by offering a range of exclusive accessories and intricate design details. This collaboration between ASUS Vivobook and BAPE ensures that every aspect of the user experience is carefully crafted and infused with a touch of individuality and limited-edition charm.

Goose Byte Announces New Open-World Survival Game, The Signal ]]> Thu, 17 Aug 2023 13:00:07 +0000 Can you survive on an alien world?

The post Goose Byte Announces New Open-World Survival Game, The Signal first appeared on Kakuchopurei.]]>
Almost two years after the studio first appeared on the scene, Goose Byte has announced their debut title, The Signal.

Pitching itself as an approachable, third-person multiplayer open-world survival craft game with a key focus on pushing player creativity over violence, The Signal is Goose Byte’s contribution to moving the genre forward.

The Signal – which is being developed in Unreal Engine 5 for unspecified consoles and PC – is built upon the three key pillars of exploration, invention, and survival. With a focus on user-generated crafting content, the game’s unique recipe-sharing system and sustainability theme set it apart from the wealth of quality titles operating in this space.

Theodor Diea, CEO and founder of Goose Byte, said:

“We’re really excited about the world we’re building for The Signal. We want to take players on a journey: as you step out onto this uncharted planet you are faced immediately with an environment that is as mysterious as it is beautiful. This planet is teeming with unknown flora and fauna across multiple, massive biomes. But not everything is as it seems. The planet is fully aware of your actions and, the longer you spend exploring, the more it starts interacting and messing with you.”

In The Signal, you will venture onto an alien planet featuring multiple biomes littered with strange structures and a sentient ecosystem that seems to react to your every move. You can play alone or with up to 16 players on player-hosted dedicated servers on this unique expedition through a one-of-a-kind planet.

Touching back on the theme of environmental awareness, Theodor asks:

“What if we could re-roll the choices we’ve made here on Earth? Are we, as humans, capable of learning from our past mistakes? The choice is left to you and how you decide to play The Signal.”

The Signal is in development for unspecified consoles and PC. More details will be revealed in the months ahead.

Blue Beetle Is A Fun But Formulaic Family-Friendly Superhero Origin Movie ]]> Wed, 16 Aug 2023 17:00:10 +0000 Get ready for a new DC hero.

The post Blue Beetle Is A Fun But Formulaic Family-Friendly Superhero Origin Movie first appeared on Kakuchopurei.]]>
The third DC movie in 2023 is Blue Beetle and it’s finally a character who isn’t connected to the DC Trinity in any way (the last one like that was 2019’s Shazam!). This isn’t Blue Beetle’s first-ever live-action appearance (unfortunately, that honour went to the Smallville TV series) but it is his first-ever big-budget movie. Thankfully, the Blue Beetle movie is a fun family-focused action flick that serves as a decent introduction to the character, whose historical roots actually go all the way back to 1939 (yes, Blue Beetle is almost as old as Superman).


In the movie, Xolo Mariduena gives a great portrayal of Jaime Reyes AKA Blue Beetle himself. I knew he had potential (from watching him as Miguel in the Netflix Cobra Kai series) and this role proves that he has the charismatic chops to be a lead actor in a movie. His performance is complemented by the rest of the supporting characters who are his family members in the movie. The Latinx culture and their unique family dynamics are well-represented in this movie, and that distinguishes it from other generic family-oriented superhero movies. That being said, it’s also the Reyes family members who fall into the ‘convenient plot devices’ issue of the movie, which is where the movie sort of gets a light-hearted Spy Kids-like vibe that might be divisive.

The biggest highlight of the movie is Blue Beetle himself in action. The CGI for the suit and effects look amazing, especially for a movie that was slated to be a streaming exclusive at one point in the past. Comics fans will love how comic-accurate this depiction of Blue Beetle is in terms of how he moves and uses his powers. I also won’t lie, it looks awesome. If there’s one thing that the DCEU has consistently done better than the MCU, that’s the live-action design of superhero costumes. The best thing about this particular version of Blue Beetle in the comics has always been how versatile his alien armour is, similar to how Marvel’s symbiotes work, and we see a lot of that in the movie. It’s more than just an Iron Man-like suit that flies and shoots lasers, so I’m happy to see that.

The biggest problem with Blue Beetle is that it feels a bit too formulaic, following a lot of the same beats and tropes of superhero movies from the early 2000s. It also features many convenient plot devices that don’t make too much sense. As a comic book fan, I also dislike how the movie glosses over the Blue Beetle legacy (and disrespects it by adding unnecessary characters like Victoria Kord and Jenny Kord) and how it uses the name of a prominent DC Comics character (a Jack Kirby creation) as a placeholder for one of its main antagonists (sadly, I can’t spoil who it is).

One of the weakest aspects of the movie is its villains, who are not only forgettable but also follow the same old ‘powers must mirror the hero’ trope (like General Zod and Superman, Iron Man and Iron Monger, Ant-Man and Yellowjacket, etc.). Susan Sarandon as Victoria Kord is bland and so is Raoul Max Trujillo as Conrad Carapax. I’m also sorry to disappoint Blue Beetle fans who are looking forward to a movie with more alien elements, but the movie doesn’t really explore all that. DC is probably saving all that for potential sequels but the movie doesn’t even mention the Reach once (comic fans will know what I mean).

A New DC Hero

Blue Beetle is a surprisingly enjoyable movie that a lot of families and younger viewers will be able to enjoy. It has its problems that comics fans and others will probably nitpick on but at the end of the day, Blue Beetle is a decent origin movie and introduction to a DC legacy character whose proper live-action debut has been long overdue (no, that horrible Smallville appearance doesn’t count).

P.S.: There are two post-credits scenes for Blue Beetle.


We attended an early screening of Blue Beetle courtesy of Warner Bros. Pictures Malaysia. Blue Beetle is slated to premiere in Malaysian cinemas on 17 August 2023.

Shadow Gambit: The Cursed Crew Guide: Becoming The Best Pirate ]]> Wed, 16 Aug 2023 14:00:59 +0000 Walk the plank.

The post Shadow Gambit: The Cursed Crew Guide: Becoming The Best Pirate first appeared on Kakuchopurei.]]>
Shadow: Gambit The Cursed Crew is a new stealth strategy game from Mimimi Games, the developer of Shadow Tactics Blade Of The Shogun and Desperados 3. It is slated to release for the PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC on 18 August 2023.

The game teaches you most of what you need to finish your missions, but here are some tips and tricks that you can check out before playing the game. These are spoiler-free, so we won’t be spoiling any of the story elements. In the meantime, head on over to our full review of the game here.

Don’t Forget To Always Use The Memory Mechanic AKA Quick-Save AKA Save Scumming

It’s an integral mechanic in the game, and while the game already has a feature where it reminds players to use it from time to time, it’s best to quick-save as often as possible. There’s no limit to the Memory saves, so it’s there for you to abuse it. As a tip, try to quick-save every single time you’ve killed an enemy, or just before you’re about to execute a complicated plan. It’s frustrating when you fail to execute a complex plan properly and you’re forced to set it all up again. Remember, it only takes one click to do so in Shadow Gambit: The Cursed Crew.

You Can Actually Run Through Enemy View Cones If You’re Fast Enough

Yeah, you don’t need to be crouching and sneaking all the time. Sometimes, with a little finesse and good timing, you can run through an enemy’s view cone without alerting them. However, keep an eye on the red colour flowing through the enemy view cones in order to time your runs correctly.

Keep A Lookout For Interactable Objects In The Environment, Which Can Be Easily Missable

It’s easy to ignore or miss out on using or interacting with the environmental objects in the game. Some of them are easily missable, such as rocks or boulders that you can push onto enemies, cannons that can shoot and knock them out, stacks of boxes that can crush your enemies, and more. So, pay attention to what’s available around you.

Try To Use Different Characters On Each Mission

There’s usually nothing stopping you from using your same favourite characters on most missions in the game. However, in order to unlock upgrades faster, change them up and use different characters for each mission. Characters who don’t go on missions gain vigour, so when you do use them later, they add more points to unlock the next upgrade.

These Chests Contain Ammo But Are Easy To Miss, And Guns Can Be Helpful In Emergencies

Guns can really help in many situations, where you can dispatch enemies easily from afar. However, the game doesn’t really tell you that you can actually get more ammo during missions. Just look out for boxes/chests like in the picture above, which contain ammo. This is crucial, since you’ll need to rely on guns a lot more in the more complex missions near the endgame.
