Luffy Meets New Friends And Enemies In New One Piece: World Seeker Story Trailer

15 hours 30 min ago

As part of Tokyo Game Show, Bandai Namco has released a new story trailer for One Piece: World Seeker. The newest game to borrow the license is unique in that One Piece creator Eiichiro Oda penned the story about Luffy ending up on Jewel Island near the Navy's prison colony.

It turns out to be a little more involved than Luffy showing up and making a bad day for the Navy, as two new Oda-designed characters are also taking part. As Luffy tends to do when he lands on an island, he meets a woman who has a problem and gets embroiled in helping her. In this case, she is the leader of the anti-Navy resistance, Jeanne. She must team up with Luffy to take down Isaac, the metal-handed warden of the prison system that is currently taking over her island.

One Piece: World Seeker was recently delayed to 2019 to polish the game up and will be releasing on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Bandai Namco has revealed that Raphael, Soulcalibur's resident fencer who went from protagonist to antagonist over the course of the series. Thanks to the magic of time travel and also, like, regular magic, Raphael can turn back the clock on becoming a vampire and instead just be a weird guy in a carnival of way weirder guys.

Raphael was leaked a few weeks ago through unofficial footage of a build that showed both him and Cervantes, both of whom have now been announced. If Bandai Namco were waiting to announce Cassandra, which clearly they must be, then now is a good time when we're all caught off-guard. 

Soulcalibur VI is releasing on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 19.

The sci-fi fantasy RPG was first released in 2010 and caught a lot of attention with its flashy and strategic combat. The game was originally published by Sega, but the company confirmed to us that they licensed the title to Tri-Ace for the HD remaster.

The 4K part of the title refers to the PC and PlayStation 4 Pro enhancements, while the base model will run the game at 1080p. All versions will run at 60 frames per second.

The Last Remnant Remastered Comparison Trailer Pits New Vs. Old

Tue, 09/18/2018 - 20:20

Square Enix revealed last week that The Last Remnant, a 360 and PC RPG released toward the beginning of the previous generation as one of the first major Japanese games on Unreal Engine 3, would be getting an HD remaster on PlayStation 4. As part of the remaster, the game was getting rebuilt from the ground up for Unreal Engine 4, which has not always worked out for remastered games. To illustrate the difference for this, though, Square Enix provided a comparison video of the original Xbox 360 release and the new PlayStation 4 one.

The remaster has higher resolution textures, a more modern lighting model, and framerate improvements. While the original game on Xbox 360 ran poorly, the PC version ran quite a bit better, and had been considered the definitive version of the game. Unfortunately, Square Enix delisted the game on PC shortly before announcing the remaster, but has provided no information on whether the remastered version will replace the delisted one. We have reached out to Square Enix on the subject multiple times but received no response.

The Last Remnant Remastered releases on PlayStation 4 worldwide on December 6.

A few weeks ago, Witcher developers CDProjekt Red announced that they were separating Gwent's single-player campaign out from the card game's client as a standalone release titled Thronebreaker. Since details were so scarce, not many expected that the excision would be quite so prompt, with CDPR confirming an October 24 release date for PC and a console release on December 4.

Thronebreaker was developed to be the single-player campaign for Gwent, itself spun-off from the side activity in the Witcher III: The Wild Hunt. According to CDPR, the campaign got too big to simply be a side thing for Gwent and is being released with "The Witcher Tales" as a subtitle. It is unclear if this means a new brand categorization that allows for further spin-offs within the Witcher universe.

Gwent itself is coming out of beta on October 23 on PC, one day ahead of Thronebreaker, and the same day as Thronebreaker on consoles. 

When asked on Twitter if Thronebreaker would feature a cameo from Geralt, CDPR merely posted a gif of the white-haired warrior and left it at that.

New Kingdom Hearts III Extended Trailer Shows More Of Big Hero 6

Tue, 09/18/2018 - 06:50

Last week, Square Enix released the shortened version of their latest Kingdom Hearts III trailer showing Big Hero 6, which had been announced years prior with a small piece of concept art. Now, Square Enix and Tetsuya Nomura have released an extended version of that trailer with two minutes of new content over the last trailer.

As this is a TGS trailer, it's obviously in Japanese but Square Enix helpfully added English subtitles to the trailer for international Kingdom Hearts fans. Square Enix also released the box art for the game, which shows all the major players for this final piece of the series.

Kingdom Hearts III releases on January 29 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Tetris Effect, the classic puzzle game re-exhilarated by Rez creator Tetsuya Mizuguchi, is coming to the PlayStation 4 in both VR and non-VR forms on November 9, Sony announced today.

We took a look at the game at E3 this year and were somewhat blown away by what this modern version of Tetris had to offer. Tetris Effect combines the tried-and-true formula of Tetris, stretching back thirty years, and combining it with Mizuguchi's trademark sights, sounds, and style represented in games like Rez and Lumines.

The game can be played either with PSVR or without, so there's no need to worry if you don't have the headset or don't feel like getting sucked into the Tetris world. If you have a PS4 Pro, Tetris Effect is 4K and 60 frames per second, as well.

You can get your hands on the game in just a few short months on November 9.

Rockstar Reveals New Locations, Screens For Red Dead Redemption II

Mon, 09/17/2018 - 16:13

Rockstar released a slew of new images this morning, highlighting some of the locations players will be able to visit next month when Red Dead Redemption is released. In addition to the picture-postcard shots of each point of interest, the studio released a pair of new screens for each location, showing off some of the game's characters and some of the trouble they can get into.

Take a look at the images in the galleries below, with text straight from Rockstar. Red Dead Redemption II is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 26.

  Annesburg

Life isn’t easy for the miners and their families in Annesburg, which has been providing coal up and down the Lannahechee River for almost a century. Working conditions are terrible for little pay, and many men have lost their lives down the pit

  Lagras

A small, remote settlement out in the swamps of Bayou Nwa, Lemoyne, the people of Lagras live self-sufficiently for the most part, making a little money here and there from fishing and acting as guides for travelers wishing to navigate the region.

  Mount Hagen

One of the more well-known peaks in the snowy Grizzlies of Ambarino, Mount Hagen towers above Lake Isabella to the west and Beartooth Beck to the east, which provides the main pass through the western mountain range and joins up with the Dakota River further south.

  Rhodes

Prim and proper on the surface, tensions and corruption run deep in the Southern town of Rhodes, which for years has been caught in the crossfire between the Braithwaites and the Grays, two warring plantation families.

  Saint Denis

A key gateway into North America with a trade route that runs the length of the country, the bustling city of Saint Denis is a melting pot of cultures and people where businessmen, socialites, sailors, laborers, beggars, and thieves all live side by side.

  Strawberry

Strawberry was little more than a small logging town until the arrival of its new mayor, an East Coast eccentric, who is obsessed with transforming it into a cultural beacon for wealthy tourists, much to the bemusement of the locals.

  Valentine

A raucous, rough-and-tumble town in the Heartlands, Valentine’s livestock auctions attract traders, ranchers, cowboys, gamblers, outlaws, and prostitutes from far and wide, all looking to make some money, raise some hell, and have a good time.

Surreal Adventure Game The Gardens Between Releases Next Week

Sun, 09/16/2018 - 21:11

The Gardens Between is an upcoming adventure game about two young best friends, Arina and Frendt, who take a magical journey through different islands where they manipulate time to solve puzzles.

Each island has a surreal feel, with a giant analog television sitting atop a cliff or a popcorn bowl the size of a pond. The Gardens Between features no text or dialogue, relying on its emotive imagery to tell its narrative. The puzzles can be solved by tapping a single button.

The Gardens Between releases very soon, on September 20 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC.

Papers, Please Creator's Return Of The Obra Dinn Releasing This Fall

Sat, 09/15/2018 - 00:40

Return of the Obra Dinn, the newest game from Papers, Please creator Lucas Pope, is a lo-fi first-person title that is the blast from the past in more ways than one. It might be easier to watch the trailer released today than to try and interpret a description of it.

Taking place in Falmouth in 1807, you work as an insurance agent for the East India Company who has been tasked with exploring the ship Obra Dinn. The vessel disappeared years prior, but has suddenly shown up on shore without any of its crew.

The game is scheduled to release this Fall on PC.

Bandai Namco revealed a new fighter for Jump Force this morning and it's a fella' who is known more for throwing cards than throwing fists.

Summon your most powerful card because Yugi is coming to #JUMPFORCE! Ready to duel against the King of Games? Tell us in comments which mighty card would you summon to battle?

Unite to fight, JUMP FORCE arrives in 2019! Pre-order your copy here: https://t.co/tpmTsXlGz5 pic.twitter.com/m91bqQFsan

— Bandai Namco US (@BandaiNamcoUS) September 14, 2018

Reading into Bandai Namco's tweet announcement, it sounds like Yugi will be fighting by summoning the monsters found on his assorted cards, rather then getting into the fray himself. It will likely be a Pokémon Trainer from Smash Bros. situation.

Jump Force is coming to PS4 and Xbox One next year.

Timespinner Launch Trailer Channels Symphony Of The Night

Thu, 09/13/2018 - 02:50

Timespinner, a 2D indie game heavily inspired by Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, was Kickstarted in 2014 hoping to marry the structure of SOTN with the gameplay of something like Mega Man X. The original hope was to get the game released in 2017, which it missed, but it finally has a release date of September 25.

The game is about manipulating time to go back through time and dismantle the empire that killed her family. You can check out the launch trailer below.

Timespinners releases on PlayStation 4, Vita, and PC on September 25. While the Kickstarter reached the 3DS stretch goal, a version for that platform has not been announced for release.

Extremely Angry Pirate Cervantes Revealed For Soulcalibur VI

Wed, 09/12/2018 - 22:10

Every single returning Soulcalibur VI character so far has leaked early and Cervantes is no exception. Bandai Namco has decided to stop holding the door closed despite everyone knowing Cervantes is behind it and has released a trailer for the undead pirate's appearance in Soulcalibur VI.

Cervantes is one of the former wielders of the evil Soul Edge, which has given him everlasting life, though that matters less in a reboot. Cervantes is not DLC and will be included in the base roster of the game, making Tira the only announced DLC character so far. Judging from the initial leak that revealed Cervantes, it seems likely Raphael is due to be revealed next.

Soulcalibur VI releases on October 19 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

In the latest monthly developer diary for the upcoming Forza Horizon 4, developer PlayGround Games introduced a crossover with Microsoft's preeminent shooter franchise for the open-world racing game. Who says Mario gets to be the only mascot that takes to the road?

While simply adding the Warthog, Halo's most famous utility vehicle, would have probably satiated fans, PlayGround really went above and beyond with the massive amount of Halo content added. 

The Halo-themed skybox sits above you while Cortana chats your ear off about the banshees pursuing you and flying around while you drive. The race, much like the races against planes and boats from the Forza Horizon game, pits your Warthog against a Pelican gunship.

Your avatar becomes Master Chief in this mission, which I'm really hoping also carries over to the main game.

Forza Horizon 4 releases on Xbox One and PC on October 2.

First Trailer For Cygames' Action Fantasy Game Project Awakening Showcases Fantasy Gameplay

Tue, 09/11/2018 - 00:30

Earlier this year, we reported about a closed door meeting where we got to see Cygames' Project Awakening for the first time. Ahead of TGS this year, Cygames has released a trailer for the action RPG title that we saw for the first time at E3, and it looks even more impressive than it did then.

The trailer shows a fantasy knight fighting a scaled beast inside a coliseum, preceded by a voice over booming platitudes in an echoed wave. The fight scenes are intercut by other cutscenes from the game and the trailer ends with the main character standing in front of a mist-filled horizon where shadows of giant armored enemies slowly approach.

Details are sparse about the game, but a previous listing of the game's staff showed talent from games like Metal Gear Solid V included. While the game has been announced for PlayStation 4, I have my suspicions after seeing it in person that PS4 would be ambitious at best.

Project Awakening currently has no publicly known target date.

Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja have announced today that their newest fighting game, Dead or Alive 6, will be releasing on February 15. A new trailer released to announce the date shows some returning characters as scenes from the game's story mode, as well.

The trailer shows returning characters Ayane, Marie Rose, and Honoka, who will be joining the game's base roster. Nyotengu and Phase 4 will be DLC, with the former being a pre-order bonus and the latter being in the game's special edition. It is unknown if they will be added to the game as separate purchases, as well.

The trailer also shows the game's story mode, which looks to be fairly similar to Dead or Alive 5's, which the director commented to us was "very hard to understand," so it seems likely it will undergo some structural changes.

Dead or Alive 6 releases on February 15 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Left Alive's New Trailer Showcases The Three Playable Protagonists

Mon, 09/10/2018 - 17:18

A year after its reveal at Tokyo Game Show, the Square Enix survival shooter Left Alive is still a mysterious project we don't know a ton about. The latest trailer introduces us to the characters and story driving the action.

Led by Armored Core director Toshifumi Nabeshima and former Metal Gear artist Yoji Shinkawa, Left Alive is a Front Mission spin-off set during a war-ravaged future where mechs roam the streets taking out anyone stupid enough to walk into their crosshairs. Players take the role of three different characters struggling to survive the Invasion of Novo Slava.

Left Alive comes out February 28 in Japan, but won't head to North America until later in 2019.
