by Peter Paltridgeon June 16, 2016
Sega has published its E3 trailer for the newest installment (to us, anyway) of their long-running Yakuza series. Japan is still one game ahead of us, but at least the translations are still coming.

Dragon Quest VII originally came out for the Playstation in 2001. Now a new version with upgraded visuals (and stereoscopic 3D) is heading to the 3DS this September, thanks to a localization partnership between Square and Nintendo.

E3 2016: BoxBoy Is Back!

by Peter Paltridgeon June 16, 2016
One year ago Nintendo released a charming little puzzler called BoxBoy! for 3DS. You played as a literal box with eyes, who had the ability to spring other boxes out of itself and chain them together to get past obstacles.

Surprise! Nintendo just sprung a brand-new game series, starring characters you’ve never seen before, on you without warning.

E3 2016: It’s Possible To Go Straight To The Final Boss In Zelda: Breath of The Wild

by Peter Paltridgeon June 15, 2016
Speedrunners and other such “game-breaker” enthusiasts have been wondering just how open The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild truly is. It’s not unreasonable to suspect large sections of the game have been blocked off for future access, right? …Not this time. Producer Eiji Aonuma confirmed today that if a player was good enough, […]

E3 2016: Star Ocean 5 Launch Trailer And More

by Peter Paltridgeon June 15, 2016
The majority of games being shown off at E3 are slated for the fall or later, but you can have Star Ocean 5 in less than two weeks. I’m grateful there’s at least one non-Final Fantasy property Square isn’t willing to banish to phones just yet. Star Ocean 5 contains everything fans come back for: […]

E3 2016: Atlus Presents Eight Minutes Of Persona 5

by Peter Paltridgeon June 15, 2016
Atlus invited the press to preview eight minutes of clips from the new Persona 5. Unfortunately the English translation is still a work in progress, so the entirety of the footage was in Japanese. Even worse, they provided no method of directly capturing the video, so IGN had to record the screen to bring everyone […]

by Peter Paltridgeon June 15, 2016
Zelda fanatics are ecstatic over The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, but far less so over recent comments made by Eiji Aonuma, director of the series. During an interview with Kotaku, Aonuma was asked about the rumor that you would be able to choose your gender in the upcoming Zelda game, and whether […]
