Update 8/29/19 at 1:11 PM EST: It looks like the leak is confirmed to be fake and comes from an image posted to a forum nine years ago.

Original story below…

Yet another supposed Bully 2 screenshot has leaked, and this time, it could give hopeful fans their first clear look at the game’s protagonist.

Fans have been waiting with bated breath for any hint of Bully 2 news ever since its predecessor released way back in late 2006. While re-releases and remasters of the original have released since, there’s never been any official news of a sequel.

The first supposed in-game screenshot from Bully 2 was shared by YouTuber ‘TheNathanNS’ on August 14, and seemed to depict the game’s pause menu. Another similar photo closely followed on August 27, and now on August 28, yet another has surfaced – in Japanese this time.

Bully 2’s protagonist

The latest ‘screenshot’ to leak online comes from Japanese Twitter user ‘@Lumeja’, and while most of it has been scribbled out, a few details have been left visible – including an image of what the game’s protagonist could look like.

Like the first image, the image appears to be the game’s menu and includes a portrait of a person in the top left corner. This time, however, it is much more clear. 

Unfortunately, his face is obscured by sunglasses so it’s difficult to make out any distinct features, but he does sport dark brown locks – unlike Jimmy Hopkins’ shaved head in the first game.

It is unclear as to whether this is a brand new protagonist, or it’s simply Jimmy with customization options on, much like in the Grand Theft Auto games where you can edit a character’s hair and clothing features.

Another interesting feature about the image is that it features a link to Rockstar’s Social Club – something that’s been a part of its games since its introduction in 2008’s GTA IV. 

The second leaked screenshot showed a hub for a smartphone companion app, so having the Club connected too isn’t such a far-fetched idea.

As for the leaked screenshot posted on August 28, Lumeja had some questions of their own when it came to the legitimacy of the image. They circled certain sections in red, asking in Japanese whether some of the words were too spaced out to be real, and if ‘Social Club’ was supposed to be in English or not.

They were also curious as to why the currency would be dollars and not Japanese yen, but the fact that Rockstar is a Western developer could be an easy explanation for that.

“#SETcollabhiden 櫻井さん、ご確認ください。m(_ _)m
#bully #project,” the user said in a now-deleted tweet, alongside the image. According to ‘nioizoizuru‘ on the Bully 2 subreddit, the tweet caption reads “Please check with Mr Sakurai.” The meaning of this is unknown.

Of course, with every supposed ‘leak’, take everything that hasn’t been confirmed as real by the developer itself with a pinch of salt.

TFT patch 10.25 to feature Talon buffs, Warwick & Moonlight nerfs, more

TFT patch 10.25 is on its way as the final update ahead of the Mid-Set update, and it’s set to be massive. Talon could be back on the menu, Warwick and Moonlight are getting a nerf, and that’s only the tip of the iceberg.

The TFT meta has stabilized after patch 10.24. No longer is it 4-1 roll down and pray, because there’s actually meaning to the early game.

That doesn’t mean there’s nothing Riot can’t improve though. With the b-patch finally going live with nerfs to Zed, Yone, and Runaan’s Hurricane, TFT patch 10.25 is going to be the big one before the year’s end. It’s the final patch before January’s mid-set update, which will shake up units, traits, and more.

TFT patch 10.24b nerfs Zed, Yone, more

Before we dive too deep into TFT patch 10.25, it’s important to note some changes were made in the middle of TFT patch 10.24 that you might have missed. Zed and Yone were nerfed, alongside traits Keeper, Cultist, and attack speed item Runaan’s Hurricane.

This was to curb the power of Zed carry comps which had risen to prominence. An attack speed nerf has made them less potent, but ultimately still strong. The same goes for the rest of the nerfs, which have lightly nudged the power balance instead of major overhauls.

Moonlight the big target on TFT patch 10.25

TFT patch 10.24 had one big winner, and it was Moonlight reroll compositions. Diana and Lissandra carry have been two of the strongest picks on this patch thanks to the rolling changes.

However, on TFT patch 10.25, Riot are bringing them back in line. Because it’s easier to hit the composition, Riot have had to bring back Lissandra and Diana’s damage to be more in line with other one-cost units. While they still have the four-star mechanic, it won’t be as hard to beat.

Warwick is also set for a big nerf to his lifesteal at one and two-star to compensate for his ability overhaul last patch. This will be coupled with a Divine nerf, reducing the amount of true damage the units dish out.

Wukong, Fiora, Sylas, Xin Zhao, Evelynn, and Talon are all set for buffs, while Vi and Kayn are on Riot’s naughty list.
