Persona 5’s Fourth Promotional Video Reminds Us Why We’re So Excited For It’s Release

There aren’t many things in life that compel me to get out of bed of a morning. Right now there’s one main thing that gives me the energy to go about my day, and it’s basically anything that has to do with ATLUS. Not my family, nor my friends, can instil within me the motivation to do anything productive with my days on Earth…but a new promotional video for ATLUS’ upcoming groundbreaker RPG Persona 5, now THAT’S worth getting up for! As many of you may already know; ATLUS recently held a live-streaming event wherein which they revealed a slew of new details regarding the highly-anticipated Persona 5. Not only was the world delivered a brand-new promotional video that introduces us to a couple new main characters and a whole bunch of unseen gameplay footage, but we also now have a solid release date for the game in Japan which is the 15th of September. Hopefully we’ll soon hear word of a localisation date, but I wouldn’t hold your breath. The West will be left …

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes Of Heaven – Enrico Pucci Character Battle Trailer Released

Bandai Namco Entertainment are super excited for their upcoming JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure title Eyes Of Heaven, and to celebrate it’s almost-release they plan on posting character-specific videos that span the game’s entire roster which, last time I checked, is at least fifty strong. So far the list of names is fairly thick, but it’s only going to get thicker! Before jumping in and catching a glimpse of the latest spotlight characters, why not check out those who came before it:  Jonathan Joestar, Robert E.O. Speedwagon, Jotaro Kujo,Okuyasu Nijimura, Bruno Buccellati, Joseph Joestar, Dio Brando, Gyro Zeppeli, and Josuke Higashikata. Today’s video highlights a character that, long after DIO’s death, still wishes to see his divine plan through to the very end. First appearing in Part VI: Stone Ocean, Enrico Pucci is a priest at the Green Dolphin Street Prison of which main character Jolyne Cujoh is a prisoner. Being a devout follower of DIO, Enrico Pucci has a mental state that is, let’s say, less-than-stable. This man will do anything to live life according to the word of DIO, …

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes Of Heaven – Josuke Higashikata Character Battle Trailer Released

Bandai Namco Entertainment are super excited for their upcoming JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure title Eyes Of Heaven, and to celebrate it’s almost-release they plan on posting character-specific videos that span the game’s entire roster which, last time I checked, is at least fifty strong. So far the list of names is fairly thick, but it’s only going to get thicker! Before jumping in and catching a glimpse of the latest spotlight characters, why not check out those who came before it:  Jonathan Joestar, Robert E.O. Speedwagon, Jotaro Kujo,Okuyasu Nijimura, Bruno Buccellati, Joseph Joestar, Dio Brando, and Gyro Zeppeli. Today’s featured character is another member of the Joestar family that has a Stand who’s abilities I’m honestly not sure I entirely understand. Josuke Higashikata is the main protagonist of Part IV: Diamond Is Unbreakable, which is a story that follows the lives of three young boys as they hunt down a cereal killer who’s taking countless innocent lives in their small town. His stand, called Crazy Diamond, is much like Star Platinum in the way that it is both fast and …

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes Of Heaven – Gyro Zeppeli Character Battle Trailer Released

In the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure universe there’s this ancient technique called the Ripple that allows any master of the practice to harness the power of the sun to defeat their foes with an array of interesting and incredible weird techniques. Jonathan and Joseph Joestar both know their way around the supernatural art, as well as others like Will and Caesar Zeppeli who, unfortunately, both died for the sake of their individual Joestar family members. After a handful of story arcs, each differing greatly from the last, the world of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is re-written. No longer is there such thing as the Ripple, but there is something that supersedes it…a little technique called Spin. You know what’s going on, right? Come on, surely you do! Bandai Namco Entertainment are super excited for their upcoming JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure title Eyes Of Heaven, and to celebrate it’s almost-release they plan on posting character-specific videos that span the game’s entire roster which, last time I checked, is at least fifty strong. The latest spotlight trailer focuses on the …

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes Of Heaven – Dio Brando Character Battle Trailer Released

I’ve done about seven of these articles at the time of writing this one. I try my hardest to put a little bit of character specific flair into each and every one by referencing their personality types, battle tactics, etc., but with Dio Brando…all I can do is make the same jokes everyone else has already made. You know the whole “it was I, Dio” thing, yeah, it’s kind of gotten old, and yet here I am fighting with myself because, well…damn, I want to make some of those jokes too, so here I go: [Insert Dio Meme Here] Bandai Namco Entertainment are doing this interesting thing wherein which they’re periodically releasing character-specific trailers in the lead-up to their upcoming action title JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes Of Heaven. So far we’ve seen about seven of them, of which I’ll make sure to specify in the latter sections of this article, and we’re only going to be seeing more and more, considering there are over fifty playable characters, and I’m fairly certain they want to get …

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes Of Heaven – Bruno Buccellati Character Battle Trailer Released

By now I’m sure you know the story, but I’ll reiterate quickly for the sake of consistence: Bandai Namco Entertainment, in the lead up to the release of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes Of Heaven, are systematically releasing character-specific battle trailers that showcase the abilities of each and every individual addition to the new game’s roster. So far, we’ve seen trailers for Jonathan Joestar, Robert E.O.Speedwagon, Jotaron Kujo, and Okuyasu Nijimura, but today’s video focuses on none other than the zipper man himself; Bruno Buccellati. This young gangster made his first appearance in the one-shot Manga “Jolyne, Fly High With Gucchi” but became a fully fleshed-out character in the pages of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure – Part 4: Vento Aureo alongside main character Giorno Giovanna. His stand, Sticky Fingers, has the strange but applicable ability to zip open portals into any physical matter by manifesting a zipper over the area he wishes. His ability can be used to hide, making it easy for him to get the drop on his enemy, but it isn’t just this strange …

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes Of Heaven – Jotaro Kujo Character Battle Trailer Released

Bandai Namco Entertainment, to celebrate the upcoming release of their brawler title JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven, have been systematically releasing gameplay trailers focusing on specific characters from the series’ long-lineage. The first two that were released highlight the battle prowess of both Jonathan Joestar and Robert E.O. Speedwagon, and the latest character battle trailer to be released focuses entirely on the most popular JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure protagonist, the ever-broody Jotaro Kujo. Now I honestly don’t think I have to explain much regarding the main character of Stardust Crusaders because, well…everyone knows who Jotaro Kujo is. He truly is one of the most well-known Shonen Jump characters of all time and his presence is so impactful, it’s hard not to have his name burned into the side of your brain. With his Stand Star Platinum at his side, this juvenile delinquent can pretty much trump any adversary that stands in his way, even the all powerful DIO, whom he decimated with a single punch…practically. Returning from Eyes Of Heaven’s predecessor All-Star Battle, Jotaru Kujo …

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes Of Heaven – Robert E.O. Speedwagon Character Battle Trailer Released

Let’s be entirely honest, readers; Robert E.O. Speedwagon is everyone’s favorite JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure character. I mean, Jotaro Kujo is pretty damn cool with his rough hat and his long coat, but do you know what’s cooler? Pretty much everything owned by Robert E.O. Speedwagon and, yes, I WILL be referring to Robert E.O. Speedwagon by his full name throughout this entire article. It’s what Robert E.O. Speedwagon deserves. Nothing less. So, considering you’ve already read the title of this here article, I’m sure you are already aware that Robert E.O. Speedwagon will be a playable character in the upcoming Bandai Namco Entertainment brawler title JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eye’s Of Heaven. A few days ago, Bandai Namco released a video highlighting the battle tactics of the long-running series’ original protagonist Jonathan Joestar, but it’s not time to make way for his first ever friend and greatest ally; Robert E.O. Speedwagon. If you’re the type of person who’s wondering how Robert E.O. Speedwagon would fight if he ever had the absolute need to, this is the …

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes Of Heaven – Jonathan Joestar Character Battle Trailer Released

You know that there’s another JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure game coming out right? Yeah, I thought so. Anyone who’s anyone know’s that! It’s called JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes Of Heaven and it’s a follow up to the previously released PlayStation 3 fighting game All-Star Battle. Well it looks as though Bandai Namco Entertainment think that we’ve all forgotten about the characters that appeared in All-Star Battle and are taking this chance to re-introduce us with a series of introduction videos that should highlight some of the new additions to the game’s roster while also taking a look back at some of the old favorites. The very first in this, possible, series of fifty videos (seeing as there are fifty playable characters in the upcoming game) focuses entirely on the very first notable Joestar; Jonathan. Having had to train to defeat his step-brother Dio Brando who, in true Dio fashion, turned himself into a powerful Vampire, Jonathan trained in the art of the Ripple; an ability that uses the power of Solar Energy to vanquish foes, especially …

This Heavenly Form Of DIO Is Set To Feature In JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes Of Heaven

The concept of a God is already quite frightening. While it gives many religious-types around the world a large sense of solace, simply pondering the metaphysical presence of an unearthly deity is mind-boggling. Now think about a God that would let an A-Grade piece of Vampiric garbage like Dio Brando into Heaven…is that a God you want to follow? Hell no! Why? Because if it has let Dio through those pearly gates and into Nirvana, I can imagine who else is waiting up there for our arrival. The upcoming Bandai Namco Entertainment title JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes Of Heaven is a follow up fighting game to the previously released All-Star Battle, both of which allow players to slot themselves into the shoes of their favorite JJBA characters and duke it out Stand-style in ways only the character cast of this oddball series knows. The Japanese pop culture magazine Ultra Jump has this week revealed a brand-new character that will be playable in the upcoming game, and while he is technically brand-new…he’s a guy we’ve seen …

Meet The Felonious Inspirations Behind Persona 5’s New Crew

Chances are, if you’re reading this, than you’re very much aware of the Shin Megami Tensei offshoot series Persona. Even more, I’m sure you’re very much aware of the fact that there’s a new Persona game on the way courtesy of the hard-working developers over at ATLUS. The next numerical addition to the series, Persona 5, is looking to be quite a bit different from it’s predecessors in many ways. The list of changes for the new game is almost endless, but overly positive. Like with any new addition to a series, certain aspects of what made previous titles popular are changed, but what continues to keep the series as a whole highly-revered is that the core features aren’t altered. One of those particular features seen throughout each addition to the Persona series are the Personas themselves. Changing thematically across each of the games, one thing remains the same; they’re demon-like creatures that mirror one’s heart…and that’s no different for Persona 5. If you care to cast your mind back you’ll quickly come to remember that …

The Past And The Future Collide – Sega Announces Yakuza: Kiwami and Yakuza 6

What could possibly be better than the announcement of a brand-new Yakuza game? How about a complete remake of the original Yakuza game set to be released on both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4? Yeah, today is a pretty good day for those of you out there who are fans of the action series. Sega announced today, at the Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Asia Press Conference, two new titles both of which belong to the long line of Yakuza video games which dates back to 2005 with the release of the very first title in the series. The first is Yakuza 6 which, as you already know, is the latest in the line of numerical Yakuza games which will, once again, follow the crime-riddled story of Kazuma Kiryu. The other announcement, a game titled Yakuza: Kiwami, is the complete remake of the very first Yakuza video game, giving a brand-new definition to the phrase “HD Remake“. While not much is known about Yakuza 6, including overall story and when the game is set to be …

Another Reminder – Teaser Trailer Released For Omega Force’s Attack On Titan Game

On that day, mankind received a grim reminder…and since that day we’ve been reminded time and time again that Attack On Titan is one of the modern age’s most popular Anime series’, that’s why a brand-new game based on the horrifyingly gory series has just been announced. Now I’m sure you’ve all played the already-released Attack On Titan video game Humanity In Chains, right? No? Seriously? You at least know about it then. Surely. It was released exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS not too long ago and was met with a mediocre response. Yeah…not many people liked it, unfortunately. I guess that’s why developers Omega Force have decided to try their hand and making an enjoyable Attack On Titan game. The upcoming game, which was teased about two days ago to then be swiftly confirmed today, will hit shelves sometime in 2016. At least, that’s what Koei Tecmo America have assured the pop culture world. The game doesn’t even have an official title, yet we have a release year. Something is a little fishy about all this, …

The King Of Monsters Is Back – Godzilla Now Available

Gone but never lost, Godzilla returns once again as the king of monsters we all known him to be! Bandai Namco Entertainment are incredibly pleased to announce that the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 action title Godzilla has now been made available for digital download across Australia and New Zealand! This new game brings to life the destructive power of the world’s most powerful Kaiju in ways we’ve never seen before. While old-school Kaiju films and terrible Hollywood remakes show what a powerful creature like Godzilla would do in real life, this new game allows you to take control of the reptilian God and his monstrous opponents so that you’ll be able to feel what it is like to be your very own Kaiju! Developed by Japanese videogame studio NATSUME ATARI INC., GODZILLA gives players control of one of the most famous and destructive Kaiju (special effects monsters) in entertainment history. As Godzilla, players will have the power to trample and lay waste to cities. Players will also have to collect G-Energy which can be used …

Sick Of Minecraft? Let Me Introduce You To Dragon Quest Builders!

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past half a decade, you’d know exactly what Minecraft is and exactly how damn popular the video game has become. What started off as this strange indie title wherein which players can deconstruct then reconstruct the world around them quickly became a reason for people of all ages to never leave their personal computers. Not only that, but it is a game that launched a thousand YouTube careers. Long story short; it’s a very popular game…but so is Dragon Quest. What does Dragon Quest have to do with Minecraft? Well, before today, not a great deal, but Square Enix have just announced their new Dragon Quest title and it’s very similar to the low-resolution, block-building game we’ve all come to know and love. It’s called Dragon Quest Builders and it has been labelled a “block-building RPG“. So far only one screenshot of the game has been released and it honestly just looks like Minecraft with a Dragon Quest-themed modification which could honestly be exactly what Square Enix …

Steal Back The Future – Persona 5 Official Second Trailer Leaked

You know about Persona 4: Dancing All Night don’t you? It’s the spin-off PlayStation Vita title that has you, the main cast of Persona 4, dance your way through the world of the Shadows for reasons mostly unknown to everyone but ATLUS themselves. Well the rhythm title was released over in Japan only recently and with first run copies came an extra DVD that happened to feature the second official trailer for the more exciting upcoming ATLUS title Persona 5. Some grand citizen of this world ripped the trailer from the disc and placed on the fantastic tool we call the internet for us all to see before ATLUS could release it themselves. Naughty, naughty! The second trailer features mostly the same footage as the first but you’ll catch some pretty awesome updates that show what looo to be regular humans transforming into Shadows and a pair of characters that may just take the place of Margaret who tool care of all your Velvet Room needs back in Persona 4. No matter what the damn …

Some Wars Never End – Transformers: Devastation Revealed, Developed By PlatinumGames

It’s the most wonderful time of the year; that period just before the beginning of the Electronic Entertainment Expo wherein which video gaming fans are treated to some tasty news leaks before their scheduled reveals. It has already been revealed that Street Fighter’s Ryu and Fire Emblem’s Roy will be joining the already sizeable Super Smash Bros. roster thanks to an early update released in Japan, and now Best Buy Canada have spilled the beans a little early regarding a brand-new Transformers video game developed by Osaka’s PlatinumGames and set to be published by the very much unloved…Activision. Unconfirmed by neither PlatinumGames nor Activision, this game was placed on Best Buy Canada’s online store as a game up for pre-order. People are speculating that this was one of the “big reveals” supposedly saved for the E3 festivities but are already very much underwhelmed by the fact that it is just another Transformers title. Not only that but after seeing the way in which Activision and PlatinumGames came together for The Legend Of Korra game, video …

Mighty Things, Small Packages – Mighty No. 9 Signature Edition Announced 

 Overnight, Comcept and Deep Silver who’re now the publishers of Keiji Inafune’s attempt to revive Mega Man announced an interesting special edition pack for their upcoming title Mighty No. 9. For the longest time we had heard no word regarding this modern day side-scroller and then all of the sudden we’re given this; the Mighty No. 9 – Signature Edition which comes packed with a copy of the vidro game, a 6.5 inch figurine of Beck himself, and a replica of Keiji Inafune’s signature which will be placed on the box of the pack. The most exciting feature of this Signature Edition would have to be the posable figure of Beck which not only stands at a pretty nice 6.5 inches tall, as mentioned, but also comes with three interchangeable faceplates to match your mood. The awesome thing about this edition as a whole is that it will only set buyers back about $60, but you’ll have to investigatw local video game retailers just to make. Prices change all over the world. The price of …

Keep Friends Close And Enemies Closer – Lost Dimension Hits Australia/New Zealand In August

In Francis Ford Coppola’s film sequel The Godfather: Part II, Al Pacino’s character Michael Corleone speaks the all so true words “keep your friends close and your enemies closer“. This saying has been passed down throughout recent history as something of a mystical saying, often being attributed to military strategist Sun Tzu who you may know wrote the book The Art Of War. This…is not true. It is simply a line from the movie The Godfather and although it is only this, it does indeed have some worldly truth. In the upcoming tactical RPG Lost Dimension players will fill the shoes of a psychic working within a sub-government agency called S.H.E.I.L.D whose only goal is Earthly defence from enemies of immeasurable power. Too bad one of your very own teammates is a traitor, too bad you don’t know which one. The upcoming PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita title developed by Lancarse and published by NIS America, is one of the more exciting video games of this year thanks to its interesting gameplay that, mixes both action, RPG and …

J-Stars Victory Vs+ – Toriko, And Reborn! Vs Rurouni Kenshin English Trailers Released

There’s nothing that can revitalise a love for something more than a well put-together video game trailer. Bandai Namco Games has today released two more English trailers for their upcoming crossover fighting title J-Stars Victroy Vs+, both of which make me want to sit down and engulf myself in what both modern day and past Shonen Jump has to offer. The first trailer features Toriko’s titular character facing up against his eternal rival Zebra in what is described as not only a quest for the perfect food but for the perfect battle. The second trailer spans across two series’; Reborn! and Rurouni Kenshin, both of which feature young protagonists who fight only for the sake of peace, but will battle each other because, well…J-Stars Victory Vs+ really has no rules! Fight to your heart’s content! These trailers look so great, they’ve made me want to go back and re-watch Reborn!, they’ve made me want to start reading Toriko, they’ve made me want to experience Rurouni Kenshin like many people before me already have. THAT’S the power …

Za Furu! – Iggy Returns In JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes Of Heaven

The latest issue of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump has been released and with it always comes some juicy news about the young man’s genre and the series’ that call it home. This time around, Bandai Namco Games have revealed (through the magazine of course) four more characters set to appear in the upcoming fighting title based on the long-running and highly popular JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure series; Eyes Of Heaven. This new title will bring back what we all enjoyed about Bandai Namco’s previous JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure fighting title All-Star Battle but will also feature some huge updates to both gameplay mechanics and character roster. As mentioned in the article title; Iggy the Boston Terrier will return as a playable fighter in the new game as well as Dio Brando from the Phantom Blood arc of the series. The two characters NOT seen in the previous game who will be joining the cast this time around are Joseph Joestar and N’Doul, both from the Stardust Crusaders arc of the series. Dio, much like the last game, will …

Triple Threat – The Disgaea Triple Play Collection Is Coming To Europe

Yo, scrub! Did I just hear you say you’ve never played Disgaea? Yeah, you know the video game series I’m talking about; it’s a tactical role-playing game published by NIS America, and you’re saying you’ve never played it? How is that even possible?! Oh wait…you’ve played the first few games? I apologise, I misheard you. I guess that’s okay, but do you maybe want to play some of the other titles in the series but can’t really afford to buy each of the games individually? Awesome, dood! I got some good news for you! NIS America…Europe has today announced a new video game collection that brings together three of the newer Disgaea titles all on one PlayStation 3 release. Yep!

El Psy Congroo – Steins;Gate Headed For Europe This June

I feel as though I wont be alone when I say that Steins;Gate is, in fact, the greatest time travel story of our generation. The most tragic thing about it is that most of our generation don’t even know what the hell it is, let alone just how emotional and complex the story can be. I first experienced this journey through time thanks to the Anime that was released a few years ago. Contrary to popular belief; this video game adaptation very much lived up to the game that preceded it and almost forced me into an interest in time travel and the legend that is John Titor. 5pb., the developers of the highly-revered title, today announced that the game will be making a return to consoles, this time in Europe. I’d like to say “this time in the West” but unfortunately until further notice…North America aren’t lucky enough to get it. Chances are the USA WILL be getting a Steins;Gate release but it’ll be a little dekayed thanks to submission problems that the publishers …

Bandai Namco Reveals Contents Of Dragon Ball: XenoVerse DLC Pack Three

We live in the age of download content. This is what being a gamer in modern times is like; we purchase a video game for full price then, over time, the developers continue working on it to then release DLC pack after DLC pack until you’ve spend just about as much money on digital content as you did on the game itself. Some companies really go above and beyond when it comes to add-on content, were looking at you Capcom, and others like Bandai Namco Games do only what is necessary. When it comes to the third DLC pack of Bandai Namco’s latest Dragon Ball Z title XenoVerse, it is the release of a new movie titled Resurrection F that justifies this new addition to an already very much content populated game. Much like the previous two DLC pack, the third will feature some new playable characters, stages, missions and Masters but unlike the previous two…this one also features blue-haired Saiyans. Super Saiyan God SS Goku, Super Saiyan God SS Vegeta, Golden Frieza and Jaco …

Bandai Namco’s “Godzilla” – The Battle Heats Up Trailer Released

I’m sure, if you’re anything like me, the 2014 Godzilla film left you with one monster of a bad taste in your mouth. What we thought was going to be two hours of Heisenberg riding a giant lizard turned out to be crushed expectations and a lacklustre leading man. Thankfully all that is over now and the world is slowly but surely moving on from one of history’s biggest tragedies…I’m talking about the movie. Bandai Namco Games announced a while back that Godzilla will be returning to the world of video games with it’s new title for the PlayStation 3 and 4, appropriately named “Godzilla”. Up until now we only really knew that the game was getting a release but we didn’t know when we could expect it. Bandai Namco Games, alongside releasing a brand-new trailer for the game, revealed that it will be hitting shelves across Europe, Australia and New Zealand on the 17th of July this year. Yes, you read that correctly! In a little under a month we’ll be given the opportunity …

Bandai Namco Games Announces “One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 – Doflamingo Edition”

Both Bandai Namco’s “One Piece: Pirate Warriors 1” and “One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2” were huge successes the world over. There are many people, some who aren’t even fans of Anime as a whole, that absolutely adore the adventures of Luffy and crew as they sail around the world of “One Piece” finding new enemies to defeat and new citizens to save. This is why the “One Piece” range of video games does so well! Bandai Namco knows this and because of just how well-received their games are, they always like to give their fans just a little bit more to enjoy with the release of a new title. You know that “One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3” is on the verge of being released but what you may not know is that Bandai Namco Games Australia have just announced both a special edition of the upcoming game as well as some pre-order bonuses one can nab just for getting in early. This special video game package is titled the “Doflamingo Edition” and, while obviously coming …

Keep Friends Close And Enemies Closer – “Lost Dimension” Is Headed To The West

The act of betrayal is as old as history itself. It dates all the way back to the time of Jesus Christ who was put to death thanks to the greedy nature of someone he considered quite a close friend. It’s no surprise that an act as dastardly as this has lasted so long and it seems as though the higher up the social ladder you climb the more likely it is to happen to you, or vice versa. The upcoming tactical RPG “Lost Dimension” knows about this all too well. Announced over night, this critically-acclaimed psychic-fueled title will be making it’s way across the pond to but the Americas and Europe alongside Australia and New Zealand. In the Americas, ATLUS will be handling the distribution but in Europe it will be NIS America who will be in charge.

The New Persona 5 Trailer Will Have You Seeing Red

There’s no better news than that of “Persona 5” news and at the very top of my “favorite things to see” list has always been a brand-new trailer. Well ATLUS delivered with the unveiling of the very first full “Persona 5” trailer which showed off a great deal more than I believe a lot of people expected. With a tonne of colour, trailer gave us a glimpse at both the combat and social simulator side of the game, both of which look fantastic! Audiences are somewhat introduced to four members of the main cast but I can’t help imagining that there are going to be a fee more we wont be made privy to until closer to the release. To say the very least; there’s a lot about this trailer that screams “Persona” but there’s also a great deal that boasts the evolution of the great series. With a sinister-looking protagonist, a Bancho best friend, a Rise Kujikawa impersonator and a cat mascot, there’s not much else to be desires which can only mean this …

Latest Dragon Ball Xenoverse Trailers Shows How Raditz Could Have Survived The Special Beam Cannon

We all remember the first time Goku died in “Dragon Ball Z”, right? It happened almost as soon as he met his Saiyan brother and it was dealt to him by former enemy Piccolo. Goku locked his brother into a sturdy grapple and the green man fired a spiralling laser through both of the monkey men’s chests. Yeah, yeah, everyone remembers this. Do you remember every thinking to yourself; “Surely Raditz could have gotten out of that”? Because I do, and it has plagued me for years. From what I can remember, there was a lot of his body that Goku hadn’t locked up which surely could have been utilised to, you know…escape death. Well Bandai Namco Games Japan have released a brand-new trailer for their upcoming fighting title “Dragon Ball Xenoverse” that shows just how Raditz could have survived the dynamic duo’s team up and, well…it looks like he did it with ease. The video is meant to be showing off how “Dragon Ball” history is being altered in the story of the new …

Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax Is Coming To The West!

Have you heard of this game, reader?! Surely you have! It’s this amazing crossover fighting game that brings together characters from a whole bunch of different Light Novels, some of which have been adapted into Anime series and others of which have never been released outside of Japan. That doesn’t seem to matter though because Sega has announced that it will definitely be coming to the West sometime this year for both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita! You’ll be able to throw  down with characters like Kuroyukihime (Accel World), Kirito (Sword Art Online) and Rentaro (Black Bullet), but I’ll say without a shadow of a doubt that the character I’ll be playing as the most will absolutely be Shizuo from the very popular series “Durarara!!” which has just begun its second season. Though i have no idea who a great deal of these characters are, it doesn’t really matter! “Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax” is both a fighting game and a crossover title so, as long-time readers will know, that’s all I need to be …

One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 – Luffy, Law, Doflamingo, Fujitora Gameplay Videos Released

Yo! By now you surely know that there’s another “One Piece” video game on the way right? Of course! The third in the series of “Pirate Warriors” brawlers is set for a release in both Japan and the West this year, and the Publishers of the upcoming title Bandai Namco Games have just released another set of gameplay trailers that each focus on a different character. This isn’t strange for Bandai Namco Games who are constantly giving the pop culture world pieces of pre-release media like screenshots and videos. “Pirate Warriors 3” will feature the same gameplay mechanics fans of the series have come to know and love but, for the sake of those who HAVE played all the games in the series, it will also feature some updated features so that the game doesn’t come across as boring. With a whole new character roster and some awesome-looking graphics, it’s a little hard to pass up what will hopefully be the best “One Piece” video game to date. There is no specific Western release date …

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes Of Heaven – Robert E.O. Speedwagon Announced as Playable Character

Oh boy! Oh no! Oh…Oh shit! I can’t contain my excitement! The latest edition of Shueisha’s Young Jump magazine has today revealed three more playable characters set to appear in the upcoming “JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure” tag-team fighting title “Eyes Of Heaven” and while two already featured in this games predecessor, the other didn’t and he’s the most exciting addition of all! Joining the updated roster for the new game will be the Joestar that started it all, Jonathan, alongside his mentor and trainer Will A. Zeppeli…but those guys are boring because anyone that’s read the “Phantom Blood” Manga or watched that arc in the Anime adaptation should know that the true star of the series is one Robert E.O. Speedwagon who has also been announced as another playable character. This. Is. AWESOME! The assumption is that Zeppeli and Jonathan will fight much the same way as they did in the previous game so let’s not focus on them. Instead let’s talk about just how our friend and my personal hero Mr. Speedwagon is going to …

The Awakened Fate Ultimatum Announced For A North American/European Release

There exists a place between the land of the good and the land of the evil but this place is occupied by beings that fall under both categories. It’s a place we call “the real world” but little do we know that this world may not even truly be the “real” one. When Heaven and Hell clash, there are really only human casualties that get caught in between the crossfire and with the upcoming NIS America title “The Awakened Fate Ultimatum”, which has just been announced to be making its way to the West in 2015, you’ll be able to experience what it is like to be a God that must go to way with the forces of the malevolent for the sake of both the human world and the plane of existence where Heaven lies. “The Awakened Fate Ultimatum” is just another RPG title that NIS America is bringing to the West in 2015 and, to be entirely honest…I’m so very excited for it.

Bandai Namco Games Announces “JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes Of Heaven” Fighting Game

Di molto! It was announced today through Japan’s V-Jump Magazine that there’s a new “JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure” game on its way and goes by the name “Eyes Of Heaven”. Labelled a “follow up” to the PlayStation 3 fighting game “All-Star Battle”, “Eyes Of Heaven” is set for a release on both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, and will feature a character roster similar to the original game but with some extra additions, two of which have already been revealed: The partial dinosaur Diego Brando (“Steel Ball Run”) and the worlds least-hated Nazi soldier Rudol Von Stroheim (“Battle Tendency”), though if this game is anything like “All-Star Battle”…those names will probably be changed by the time it gets localised. Diego will be voiced by Takehito Koyasu and Stroheim will be voiced by Atsushi Imaruoka, but as far as information on the new game comes…that’s about all of it. There is a new battle mechanic called the “Dual Heat Attack” which leads me to believe we’ll be able to perform combination techniques of some calibre but that’s yet to …

“Under Night In-Birth EXE:Late” Is Making Its Way To Australia And New Zealand

Released in Japan last year and already announced for distribution in North America, “Under Night In-Birth EXE:Late” is a fairly unheard of fighting game developed by the same studio that brought you “Melty Blood”…another semi-unheard of Japanese fighting game. Though it dominates Japanese arcades, it doesn’t necessarily have much of a presence outside of the great country and that’s probably because it simply doesn’t get that much promotion in the West. Well that’s all about to change soon because today NIS America, who distributes the game across Europe, has announced that “Under NIght In-Birth EXE:Late” is heading down to Australia and New Zealand in 2015 and they want you all to get ready for one hell of a twisted fighting game!

This gameplay footage basically takes …

Turn Your PlayStation TV Into A Portable Console With The New DekaVita7…Or Just Buy A PS Vita

I wouldn’t usually write about something like this but, as it turns out, I’m in quite a silly mood and seeing this new item made me chuckle to myself quite a bit. We all know what the PlayStation Vita is, right? It’s a portable console that is currently serving as Sony’s middle child who isn’t quite as good as it’s older sibling and is better than its younger sibling but is getting no attention for it, therefor leaving it in a state of absolute limbo. If you’re a reader of the site who’s constantly reading you’ll know that I happen to love the PlayStation Vita. As of right now, it’s my favorite console, hands down. When I first heard about the PlayStation TV or PlayStation Vita TV, a small system that allows you to play Vita games on your television, you can probably imagine I was quite interested in it. Imagine playing games like “Freedom Wars” or “Persona 4 Golden” on a huge screen, that would be pretty damn sweet. The PlayStation TV just got …

When that news breaks, you better believe we’ll have it here on the site! -30-

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution – Review

The world is never and will never be short of ‘Naruto’ fighting games. This is a truth all Anime and Manga fans have come to understand, and most of them are more than grateful. Every two years or so the good people over at Bandai Namco Games in conjunction with video game developer CyberConnect2 create and distribute a brand-new ‘Naruto’ fighting title. Each new game brings about new characters, upgraded battle mechanics and improved graphics BUT every single time a new one is released reviews say mostly the same thing; it’s not that different from the last game. This almost seems like a curse for the franchise seeing as it has been this way for years but does the latest addition, ‘Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution’, throw off the balance and break the hex of perpetual monotony? It’s quite possible. Unlike it’s predecessors, ‘Revolution’ does not fall victim to the habit of Anime-based video games simply retelling the story of the series.

Persona 5 Just Announced For The PlayStation 4 + Teaser Trailer

Sugoi! Sony Computer Entertainment today held a small but exciting press conference wherein which they revealed a whole bunch of information regarding their upcoming games, one of which happens to be the highly-anticipated ‘Persona 5’ which, up until today, had only been announced through a picture featuring five chairs and the video game’s title. Today we were given more than that: Not only was a teaser trailer for the upcoming game released but it was made known to the public that ‘Persona 5’ would not only be coming to the PlayStation 3…but also the PlayStation 4. My excitement is immeasurable seeing as I was one of the foolish people to get rid of my PlayStation 3 so that I could make room in my life for the PlayStation 4. I now regret that decision a little less. The game is still set at a vague 2015 release but the Tokyo Game Show is only around the corner and my hope is that we’ll see more of it there. It’s time to break free! -30-
