Its been a long time coming but Nintendo have finally confirmed that Bandai Namco’s Pokemon themed brawler, Pokkén Tournament is coming to the Wii U next year.
Alongside the announcement of a Spring 2016 world release Nintendo also issued a new trailer for the game which you can get a peak at here.
Five years ago a man named Joakim Sandberg decided to make a game inspired by his love of Metroid Fusion and Monster World IV, a beautiful 2D action-platformer dubbed Iconoclasts was the result and now it’s coming to the Playstation 4 and PS Vita.
Set in a futuristic world where the powers that be decide what you can and can’t do,
players take control of Robin, a mechanic who finds her pastime outlawed and decides to take a stand, a stand very reminiscent of the Mega Man X series I’m sure you’ll agree from the looks of the game’s latest trailer, but that’s no bad thing. What is a bad thing however is that Iconoclasts is still without a firm release date, hopefully though we won’t have to wait too many more years before we get our hands on this little marvel.
While the Summon Night series might not garner the kind of attention the likes of say the Final Fantasy or Pokemon series do, the franchise has never the less reached it’s 15th anniversary and to celebrate publisher Bandai Namco have revealed the 6th game in the series is currently in the works for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.
Pencilled in for a spring 2016 release in Japan, Bandai Namco are already promising fans of the series that this will be the most ambitious Summon Night to date, featuring some of the most powerful summons ever seen.
Level-5’s hugely popular take on the monster battling genre Yo-kai Watch has finally received a November 6th release date, to debut across North America. Alongside the 3DS game, a cartoon featuring some of the 200 odd yo-kai found in the game will also be aired on Disney XD and there will even be a toy-line hitting shop shelves come January. Everything a Yo-kai Watch fan could want then.
Once a trailblazer of the MMORPG genre the Phantasy Star Online series has all but faded into obscurity in recent years, thanks largely to Sega’s refusal to localize the latest game in the series Phantasy Star Online 2. Could that be about to change?
Speaking during the recent ARCS Festival, Sega announced that not only was a major content update dubbed “Reborn Episode 4,” heading Phantasy Star’s way in the not too distant future but that the game would be made available from early 2016 on the PS4 as well as the PC and PS Vita across Asia.
Sadly as they often do Sega refused to comment on the chances of this new development leading to a Phantasy Star localization, however given the large user base of the PS4 in the West and recent comments by President of Sega Hajime Satomi in regards to the need for more PS4 titles to be sent over seas, we might just see another English language Phantasy Star yet.
20 years on and fans of the Streets Of Rage series are still waiting for Sega to return to their masterpiece, and while that doesn’t look like it’ll happen any time soon series composer Yuzo Koshiro has taken to twitter to post a piece of concept art for the long cancelled Streets Of Rage 4. Originally planned for release on the Dreamcast, Streets Of Rage 4 was to be a 3D brawler with first-person sections featuring Axel’s son, Burn, a Shinobi named Erie and two other unnamed characters, however for reasons known only to Sega the plug was pulled on the project shortly after this demo was made. Since the cancellation of Streets Of Rage 4, a number of other attempts to revive the classic series have been undertaken however like the Dreamcast effort none have survived past the demo stage, will that change? Streets Of Rage fans everywhere live in hope.
SideQuest Studios have revealed plans to bring not only their 2012 PSN exclusive Strategy RPG Rainbow Moon to the PS4 but the game’s forth coming sequel, Rainbow Skies as well. Both games are pencilled in for a late 2016 release with Rainbow Skies also being released on the PS3 and Vita at around the same time.
Taking a leaf from Square Enix’s book, Capcom have decided to finally give into fan’s demands and begin work on the long overdue remake of Resident Evil 2.
Unfortunately, given the remake has only just received the go ahead the Megaman makers didn’t have a whole lot more to add to the announcement but Yoshiaki Hirabyashi, the game’s producer, did issue a short video thanking fans for their continual support and asking for their patience while the game is in development.
Sony have revealed plans to raise the price of both the monthly and three month PSN membership options starting this September 1st in the UK and across mainland Europe.
Market conditions was sighted as the reasoning behind the, as yet undisclosed price rise, however it’s far more likely that Sony are actually trying to make all PSN subscription options, bar the most expensive twelve month option, as unpalatable as possible.
