Ascend: New Gods Changes to Ascend: Hand of Kul

By Ashley Woodcock, 3 years ago
With rumours flying around the internet regarding a possibly name change for Signal Studios' upcoming XBLA title, Ascend: New Gods, PlayXBLA have released the official word on the matter. The original name for the game has indeed been changed to the new "more fitting" title of Ascend: Hand of Kul. PlayXBLA also were kind enough to give us the reasoning behind the name change:

A year has passed since our big unveil at E3 2012, and the New Gods are no longer “new”. It was a tough decision, but during their board meeting in The Sanctum a couple of weeks ago, the New Gods decided to step down from power. Although the news came as a sudden shock to us, we agreed with their decision. Left without a governing body, we decided on our own that it would be more appropriate to give the title a more story-centric name.
How much more appropriate will the Hand of Kul change to the title be? We'll have to wait to find out once players get to grips with the XBLA title later this year.
