  • El Shaddai Director Announces New RPG The Lost Child For PS4 and PS Vita
    Bald Bouncer
    Takeyasu Sawaki, the director and character designer of El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron, has announced his new game- The Lost Child, a new command based turn based RPG coming for the PS4 and PS Vita this Summer in Japan.


    The Lost Child will be set in the same mythology as El Shaddai, and in fact its story will be connected to it. There will also be monster collecting elements in the game, ala Pokemon, Digimon, Yokai Watch, Shin Megami Tensei, Dragon Quest, and Persona,...

    Bald Bouncer
    Crash Bandicoot 4 isn’t happening right now, but we are getting a consolidated collection of the PlayStation trilogy, remastered. The remasters look lovingly, gorgeously redone for the modern market, and the more we see of them, the more excited we get.


    Take, for instance, this new trailer for the Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy. This trailer focuses on the villains of the trilogy, showing these quirky beasts returned. People and players who grew up playing Crash should surely...

  • Star Ocean 3: Till The End of Time Is The Newest PS2 Classic Launching On PS4 May 23
    Bald Bouncer
    Star Ocean may kind of suck now – Star Ocean 4 was pretty bad, and last year’s Star Ocean 5 was arguably even worse – but if you want to relive the glory days of the franchise, you can soon. At least, if you have a PS4. Square Enix has confirmed that Star Ocean 3: Till The End of Time will be launching on the PS4 via PS2 Classics on May 23 in the west.


    That’s the good news- here comes the bad news. It’s $20.99, which is an obscene price for such an old game, and ensures that...

    We don’t know when – or even if – we will get a new WipEout game, but we are at least getting the three previous games in the franchise consolidated into one package, and remastered for the PS4 soon. And ahead of WipEout Omega Collection‘s launch next month, PlayStation Access has shared a brand new video of the title, showing off some blazing, high speed split screen gameplay.


    The footage is from a standard PS4, and shows off 1080p and a blistering 60 frames per second- these...

  • Dynasty Warriors 9 Goes Open World, New Details Revealed
    Bald Bouncer
    Famitsu (via Gematsu) has a bunch of new information about Koei Tecmo’s Dynasty Warriors 9, the cult favourite crowd-brawling action title. A number of changes are inbound including an open world setting which the player will traverse via horseback (fast travel is still a thing so don’t worry).


    Capturing castles is possible in the open world and you can now attack them from behind or even the high ground. Battles will now take place at different points on a map with main missions...

  • Street Fighter 5 Is Hitting Its Stride, Says Capcom

    Street Fighter 5 was such a missed opportunity. Capcom was following the trailblazing Street Fighter 4, which is credited with single handedly having revived the fighting game genre, and, owing to an exclusivity arrangement with Sony, had all eyes on them thanks to an extensive marketing campaign. But the game, while mechanically sublime, launched with a paucity of content and all manner of issues- the ensuing word of mouth was enough to scare most people away, and the game has shambled on ever since.

    However, Capcom’s diligent work in supporting the game over the last year seems to be bearing some fruit. Speaking to GamesIndustry.biz, Stuart Turner, Capcom Europe’s newly appointed COO, discussed Street Fighter 5‘s launch and subsequent fortunes, noting that the game was in a ‘stronger place’ now.

    “Street Fighter 5 is hitting its stride, there are seasons of content to come and we still have support plans for the title for many more years,” he said. “Our Capcom Pro Tour is going into even more countries than ever before while local tournaments are being set up in places such as India in 2017. After a difficult start Street Fighter 5 in a very good place now.”

    He also noted that the service model in itself wasn’t flawed, especially for a game like Street Fighter 5– “I still believe the service game model is absolutely the thing for Street Fighter. It was always going to be a huge challenge to take a well loved brand from a traditional boxed product to a service game business model. The way a game like that is produced, developed, tested and marketed are all hugely different to a traditional boxed game. I don’t think it would be wrong to say that we didn’t get much right with Street Fighter 5 at launch, we’ve learnt and put things in place that will avoid such issues ever arising in the future. Getting an offering that’s right for consumers first should be always be our priority.”

    Of course, one can argue that something as basic as this is something Capcom should have known to begin with, but they’ve done good work on the game since its launch, and they’re clearly committed to continuing to improve it, so I’ll cut them some slack.
