Microsoft and 343 Studios has just announced that Halo 4 is locked in for a November 6, 2012 release date for the Xbox 360.

These new screenshots for Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch are so pretty that they don't even look real. But, for as great as they look, they're nothing compared to seeing the game in motion. There are plenty of animated, cell-shaded, high-frame rate JRPGs out there, but none of them have ever looked like this, and that's probably because none of them had Studio Ghibli helping out. Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch will be released in early 2013 for the PS3. (Dale North)
We've seen some very pretty screenshots of Bethesda's Dishonored, but so far, nothing in motion. Those hoping for gameplay footage will be disappointed, since this is a CG trailer, but it's still pretty exciting stuff. Dishonored will be available on PC, Xbox 360, and PS3, with a vague "2012" release window. (Jim Sterling)
