  • Danganronpa Another Episode coming September for Europe and NA

    A brand new trailer and a number of screenshots have been released for Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls, and alongside it a release date has been announced by NIS America. Danganronpa Another Episode is set for release this September in Europe and North America.

    Danganronpa Another Episode will be released on the PS Vita on September 1 in North America and September 4 in Europe.

    Danganronpa Another Episode will take a slightly different approach to the first two games in the series. This time round, the action adventure title will focus on two heroines - Komaru Naegi and Toko Fukawa. Both the characters are thrown into Towa City, and it’s been plagued with despair and depression.

    The Danganronpa series has always been one of NIS America’s more action packed titles, so if you’re not so much for the turn based JRPG style of their other games, you may be more interested in Danganronpa Another Episode.

    In Danganronpa Another Episode, Komaru Naegi plays a large role in the story of the game. Komaru is Makoto Naegi’s younger sister, and she has been imprisoned inside a mysterious building for over a year. In Danganronpa Another Episode Byakuya Togami, a member of the Future Foundation attempts to rescue Komaru.

    The rescue is derailed as swarms of Monokumas attempt to attack Byakuya Togami. Eventually, Komaru does escape but she finds that the city has been taken over by a group of child warriors named the Warriors of Hope.

  • Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold Coming February 12

    The successor to the first Etrian Odyssey is making it's way to Nintendo DS and Nintendo 3DS early next year on February 12. The game will be released on both platforms as separate titles. The first of which is a Nintendo 3DS remaster of Etrian Odyssey 2: Heroes of Lagaard.

    The remastered edition includes new dungeons, remastered graphics and various system improvements, making it the most definitive edition available for you to get your hands on.

    The second game is the Untold portion - this is a brand new story mode that gives players a fixed party to play with. There's voiced dialogue and animated cutscenes that takes a look into the bittersweet story of the Fafnir Knight and Princess Arianna.

    Untold will have a strong focus on the characters and their own involvement with the Fafnir Knight's story. As the game unfolds, your part will adventure into the ruins of and the Yggdrasil Labyrinth. The party includes Flavio the protagonist and two accomplices, Bertrand and Chloe.

    Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold will have varying levels of difficulty that newcomers and veterans alike will enjoy. On top of a hardcore Expert mode for the die-hard veterans, there is also a Picnic mode that makes the game a walk in the park - this is a great option for those that just want to enjoy the story of the game and not be presented with difficult within the game.

    The Fafnir is also added as a brand new character class and will only be available in the game's story mode. The Fafnir has the ability to transform into a beastly demonic form that can enhance the Fafnir's attributes and abilities.

  • Street Fighter V Gets M Bison Reveal Trailer

    Street Fighter V M BisonM Bison has just been revealed by Capcom in a brand new reveal trailer for the character. The new trailer shows off a few other Street Fighter V characters before showing the new M Bison. Unsurprisingly, not much has changed to the character, but M Bison has had a nice re-texture to meet the higher quality graphics that Street Fighter V features.

    M Bison originally made his way into the Street Fighter franchise in Street Fighter 2 and as you can imagine, he has stuck around ever since.

    So far, we're still not very sure about the confirmed lineup for Street Fighter 5, but M Bison makes his way as the fourth confirmed character. Before M Bison, players were introduced officially to Ryu, Chun Li and Charlie.

    It's likely that we'll see a large roster of character we've already seen from Street Fighter titles in the past and if we're lucky we may see a new face or two as well. Unfortunately Capcom has chosen to reveal each character separately so it may be some time before we know the full character roster for Street Fighter 5.

    Street Fighter 5 does not yet have a definite release date but it has been planned to release some time next year. The upcoming Street Fighter game will be available exclusively on the PlayStation 4 and the PC.

    In other news, Community Effort Orlando, a host for a fighting game tournament, has confirmed that a playable demo of Street Fighter 5 will be available at the tournament, which takes place between June 26 to June 28.

  • New God of War 3 Remastered Trailer Revealed

    god of war 3 remasteredA brand new trailer for the upcoming God of War 3 Remastered for the PlayStation 4 has been released and it depicts Kratos in all his HD glory. There's no doubt that God of War 3 Remastered looks like the most visually impressive game we've seen in from the IP so far. Players will be excited to hear that Sony are aiming for 1080P resolution and 60fps for God of War 3 Remastered, but the way Sony worded sounds as if a 60fps constant frame rate may not be guaranteed.

    Considering that the entire game will be getting a visual overhaul in God of War 3 Remastered, it'd be understandable to see why 60fps may not be achievable all of the time. Despite this, Sony are putting a lot of effort into the performance side of the PlayStation 4 port.

    If you plan to pre-order God of War 3 Remastered ahead of the launch of the game, Sony will offer up a few free bonuses. Unfortunately none of the bonuses will consist of in-game content because the remastered version has mostly untouched the content from the original God of War 3.

    Instead, players will be given a free dynamic theme for their PlayStation 4. The theme given out will be God of War - Fall of Olympus. If players pre-order through the PlayStation Network, the theme will be given out to those players this week instead of when the game releases.

    Players can also get a free 90 day rental for both God of War and God of War from the PlayStation Network for pre-ordering God of War 3 Remastered.

  • New Yoshimitsu Revealed for Tekken 7

    new yoshimitsu tekken 7Bandai Namco has finally announced that Yoshimitsu will be returning to the franchise in Tekken 7. With Yoshimitsu being one of my favorite fighting characters of all time, I was pretty excited to hear the news, but Bandai Namco has done something a little... strange with him.

    If you look back to previous Tekken games, you'll notice that Yoshimitsu never really has one appearance style. He'll always have drastically different costumes in each game. For those who don't keep an eye on the series it's easy to lose track of what Yoshimitsu actually looks like.

    The latest rendition of Yoshimitsu for Tekken 7 is beyond a shadow of a doubt the weirdest we've ever seen him before. Yoshimitsu now has a number of tentacles branching off of his face.

    Yes, that's right. We've been tricked. Yoshimitsu has been a space squid on legs all this time. Whilst you may not personally like the new Yoshimitsu looks it's important to note that there are bound to be plenty of costume options and clothing items to create a Yoshimitsu that's more in lines with the original.

    And whilst Yoshimitsu's appearance is so different, his fighting style is still the same and that's all that really matters. Right?

    So far we still don't know when Tekken 7 will be released internationally. The game is already widely available in Japan. We'll keep you updated about the launch details for Tekken 7 as more information comes in. Hopefully the western release dates will be announced soon.

  • DICE Explains Why There are no Battlefront Space Battles

    no battlefront space battlesNo space battles. Star Wars Battlefront with no space battles. I found myself saying this over and over when I first heard it, but as the idea sank in, I've become more accepting of the idea. I'm not entirely convinced Battlefront by DICE will be a great game, but I'm ready to see what they make of it.

    According to DICE, there were some interesting design choices made that decided the fate of space battles in Battlefront. DICE's Patrick Bach revealed the following statement in an interview with Official PlayStation Magazine UK.

    "We want players to stay in the same environment - we don't want players to fly off and do something over *here.* It's about the Battlefront experience, so we want to keep you in-atmosphere and fighting with the infantry."

    The one part about this sentence that doesn't seem to make sense to me is "It's about the Battlefront experience." DICE seem to be doing a lot to the franchise to take it away from the original Battlefront experience, and by removing space battles, this takes DICE's reimagination of the game even further from the Battlefront we've come to know and love.

    I doubt Battlefront will inherently be a bad game, but DICE really have to be careful with how they treat the IP. Let's hope that Battlefront turns out to be the game we've all dreamt of when it releases in April next year. Hopefully we'll see a bit more of Battlefront, including some gameplay, at E3 later this year.

  • Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 Announced

    tony hawks pro skater 5At long last, Activision has finally confirmed that a new Tony Hawk game is coming and they've even given some details about the game along with it. The new Tony Hawk has been titled Pro Skater 5.

    As the name suggests, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 will follow on from the first four original games in the franchise. Taking the game back to it's roots, we're bound to see game mechanics and features that were dropped out of the newer titles.

    Tony Hawk himself has been suggesting for a while that a new Tony Hawk game is in the works but this is the first time we've heard anything from Activision.

    The studio responsible for the development of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 is Robomodo. Whilst they're by no means a bad development studio, they're perhaps best known for their other Tony Hawk titles, Shred and Ride. Robomodo also created the HD remake of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater.

    It will be interesting to see what Robomodo can do with Pro Skater 5. They are probably the most qualified team in the world right now to be given the job of bringing Tony Hawk back to life, but we've not really seen if Robomodo can do a good job at making a "proper" Tony Hawk game yet.

    So far we do not know anything about a release date for Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5. A lot of the details have been saved for exclusive features for various publications so we'll have to wait a little while before we can find out more.

  • More Black Ops 3 Details Explained

    black ops 3 details multiplayerTreyarch just keep spilling the beans on Black Ops 3, which is great because the game sounds like it’s going to be a lot different to previous games developed by them. Recently, Treyarch gave details on the Black Ops 3 Pick 10 system, ADS mechanics and more.

    In Black Ops 2, the Pick 10 system was hugely praised by the COD community. Thankfully the Pick 10 system will be returning to Black Ops 3. Everything is mostly the same with the Pick 10 system, but there have been a few changes made to the way it works.

    Firstly, the Wildcards will still be in Black Ops 3. Players can equip up to six different Wildcards but each Wildcard will take up a certain amount of points as per usual.

    Interestingly, the entire attachment system will be different in Black Ops 3. Weapon optics are now placed in their own separate slot. If you use the right Wildcards you can equip up to five attachments onto a primary weapon, as well as an optic. Secondary weapons can have up to two attachments and an optic.

    You can create your own weapons, attachments attached, in the new Gunsmith feature that will be added to Black Ops 3.

    ADS has also been improved in Black Ops 3 so that aiming down the sights of a sniper is a lot smoother. Apparently powerful snipers will be balanced slightly to adjust to these new changes.

  • Gears of War HD Remaster Could be Coming Soon

    gears of war hd remasterAlthough we may not be getting the Marcus Fenix Collection like we originally thought, a standard HD remaster of the first Gears of War game may actually be coming to Xbox One soon.

    A report was released late last week by Polygon that suggested Microsoft are working on a HD remaster of the original Gears of War game. Whilst the reports come from sources that aren't completely trustworthy, it would make sense that an HD remaster of GoW was in the works.

    So many rumors have been circulating about a Gears of War remaster and sometimes even officials that have worked on Gears of War have chipped in. It’s a shame that it may only be the first Gears of War title, but it would still be good to see Gears of War breathe new light on the Xbox One.

    According to the same sources, the Gears of War HD Remaster will include better lighting and improved texture quality, so it won't just be a port with enhanced resolution. However, it's possible the remaster will be displayed at 1080P, and the source suggests that the game will run at 60fps in multiplayer.

    The single player campaign may have lower frame rates, but seeing consistently over 30 frames should be very accomplishable.

    I haven't been able to play Gears of War for a long time so seeing a new HD remaster would be amazing for me. Let's just hope that the rumors are true and that we’ll be hearing more from more official sources very soon.

  • Black Ops 3 DLC Packs and Season Pass Details Leaked

    black ops 3 dlc packsWhilst a lot of information about Black Ops 3 has been released officially, there is still a lot that Treyarch are waiting to reveal. Luckily, some details have already leaked, including details about the different DLC packs that will be in Black Ops 3.

    Black Ops 3 will have 4 different DLC packs, all of which will be part of the season pass. As usual, the season pass can be purchased up front and will cost considerably less than it would to purchase each of the DLC packs separately as they are released.

    Unfortunately we do not have details about what content will be in the Black Ops 3 DLC packs, although it could be possible that not even Treyarch are 100% sure at this point. Considering the full game hasn't even gone gold yet, it would make sense that DLC plans are not completely confirmed at this point.

    If previous Call of Duty games are anything to go by, we can expect new maps from the DLC packs, along with new weapons and maybe some extra gun camos. There may be more customization options bundled into the DLC packs. Advanced Warfare also introduced a part-by-part zombies campaign that was split up into each DLC pack, and this may be the same for Black Ops 3.

    Hopefully the standard zombies mode will be available alongside the base of the game, otherwise I think a lot of Call of Duty players will be very unhappy about Black Ops 3.
