Seriously, was the piano not enough? Here it is, in any case: PS3 exclusive touchy-feely platform-adventure Rain's new story trailer, courtesy of the Tokyo Game Show. Stock up on tissues if you're planning to get this game (it gets here on the first of October.)
Adorable, but melancholy and dreary. For the sake of my sanity, I really hope those two get a happy ending. Rain, Sony Japan's platforming adventure, comes to the PlayStation Network this fall.
Acquire is apparently working on a new RPG for the Vita called Mind Zero. Here's a first look. [オタク]
Last week, Japanese gaming magazine Weekly Famitsu asked their readers what they thought about the PS4. In this week's issue, the question was lobbed in the direction of many of Japan's biggest game makers, to get the developer point of view on Sony's as-of-yet faceless console. Take a look at what some of them had to…
Sumioni: Demon Arts wowed our own Brian Ashcraft at last year's Tokyo Game Show, so much so that he declared it the prettiest thing going on Sony's new handheld. While it seemed likely that the Acquire-developed game would head westward, things were still up in the air even after Sony announced the launch line-up…
Sumioni—a wonderful, upcoming PS Vita game—is getting a new female character, a princess named Mitsuhime. You must rescue her!
I'll be honest. I'm not a huge Wizardry fan. The original was programmed at my alma mater Cornell, which merits it default cool points in my book. And I like Acquire, the developer behind Labyrinth of Lost Souls, very much.
After receiving a rather lukewarm reception on the PlayStation Network, Acquire is bringing the Japanese-flavored old fashion turn-based dungeon crawling of Wizardry: Labyrinth of Lost Souls to iOS next week.
Sumioni, aka "Ink Demon", is a stunner. Looks can be deceiving, and looks aren't everything. Thankfully, Sumioni's beauty is more than skin deep.
Sumioni is one of the most striking and arresting games I've seen in a long, long time.
Gladiator VS is the upcoming Gladiator game from Acquire. You know, that game that had the underboob lady at the Tokyo Game Show.
In Akiba's Trip, players are tasked with tearing random strangers' clothes off in order to discern who is a vampire (and who is embarrassed). Forget garlic, because in Akiba's Trip, stripping is how you find out who's a bloodsucker.
In Akiba's Trip, the PSP game in which an otaku dude strips "vampires", a black machine appears in-game. It looks like an Xbox 360. In fact, that's what I thought it was. That assumption, however, is totally wrong.
Set in Tokyo geek mecca Akihabara, Akiba's Trip is crawling with vampires who are dressed as geekdom's typical inhabitants. It's up to 18 year-old kid to figure out why his friend has gone missing and save the area from those pesky vampires. How to kill them? Strip off their clothes.
The original Dungeons & Dragons-flavored first-person dungeon crawler makes its current-generation debut on the PlayStation Network this spring, as XSEED Games brings Japan's Wizardry: Labyrinth of Lost Souls to North America and Europe.
Recently released Way of the Samurai 4 doesn't come on your typical game disc — makes sense as it's not your typical game!
The streets are lined with shops and populated with otaku. This game's setting looks like Akihabara, and that's because it is. But where are the strippers?
Countdown clocks are boring, dull and blergh. But men's boxers strewn on the Akihabara streets? Now this is something we can get behind.
Swords-and-sandals saga Gladiator Begins for the Wii quickly became known as an underboob-and-slave-girl saga at the 2009 Tokyo Game Show thanks to a model in a teeny bikini. The PSP version, however, ditched the slave girl and went all beefcake.
