And The Rest: Friday News Roundup

(Updated throughout the day.) BloodRayne gets comic book treatment, Digital Act plans to launch GBA video phone in Japan.

Majesco has reportedly licensed BloodRayne out to comic book publisher Echo 3 Worldwide, which now plans to adapt the half-vampire-lady-slashes-everything-in-sight-'em-up into several books, the first of which is due out alongside BloodRayne 2 this October. Each book will apparently consist of its own self-contained story. This isn't the first time Majesco has licensed BloodRayne out for publication in other mediums of course - earlier this year German filmmaker Uwe Boll announced that he would be transferring the game onto the silver screen with a $30m budget. BloodRayne 2 is due out on PS2, Xbox and PC.

The Game Boy Advance is certainly a very versatile piece of kit. Earlier this week we heard how a Japanese firm is planning to let gamers download Pokemon episodes to their handhelds, and now it appears that Digital Act is planning to release its video communication peripheral in Japan on July 30th. The 19,000-yen adapter will allow users to 'phone' one another and send video messages at about five frames per second over an analogue telephone line.
