So far in the two years that Nvidia has launched the Nvidia Shield tablet we have had two iterations, the original and then the recently released Tegra K1 version. It seems a new version is passing through the FCC right now and this time it looks like it’ll be sporting the Tegra X1 chipset. This would obviously be a big improvement if this ends up being true.

4:33 Creative Labs may only have a couple of games available so far on Android, but those games have done very well for themselves already. The developer’s next title was announced today and is called Seven Guardians. This will be an action-based strategy-RPG title featuring a side-scrolling style of gameplay.
Kick9, the developers behind a few other games of this nature, has released a new Action-RPG title onto mobile devices today called Warriors of Glory. This particular game was actually published originally over in a few Asian regions, but has now been released in Europe and North America.
Ubisoft, the company behind the Assassin’s Creed franchise among others, has teamed up with Lilith Games to bring one of the Assassin’s Creed franchise’s characters to Lilith Games’ Soul Hunters RPG on Android. This means that players will be able to actually unlock and play as Ezio Auditore in the game.
Originally developed as part of a game jam competition project that since evolved into a full blown game funded by a successful Kickstarter Campaign, Ultimate Chicken Horse from Clever Endeavor Games is an addictive multiplayer platforming experience.
In other VR news today, word on the virtual street is that Google may be gearing up to release an Android-powered Virtual Reality headset of their own at next week’s Google I/O 2016. This wouldn’t be a massive surprise or anything if it actually came to pass, since this is the next logical step from Google Cardboard in the world of VR headset evolution. This is especially true with yesterday’s news that there is over a million active Gear VR users.
Fans of the Hitman series, or more specifically Hitman GO, who also own a Samsung Gear VR headset now have a chance to jump right into the game a lot more with the newly released Hitman GO VR game. If you’ve played the original version on your Android device, than you’re be right at home with this version, except for the fact that you’ll literally be right in the game.
