Announced this weekend during the 2016 Dead or Alive Festival in Japan, The King of Fighters’ Mai Shiranui will be joining the roster of Dead or Alive 5: Last Round for the PlayStation 4 in September. Nippon ichi!
From bathing suit to Punky Brewster cosplay in one cross-Atlantic trip. Some of the changes made to Japan’s Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem to make it North America’s Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE are quite odd.
Another giant JRPG is out for the Wii U today. Is Atlus and Nintendo’s mash-up of Shin Megami Tensei and Fire Emblem any good? We’ve got positive impressions of the Japanese version of the game and video of the first hour of the Western version to help you decide.
Atlus gave a demonstration of Persona 5 gameplay today at E3. Here’s video of it.
Odin Sphere for the PlayStation 2 is a gorgeous 2D masterpiece of an action role-playing game with a big slowdown problem. The high-definition remake, out today for the PlayStation 3, 4 and Vita, does away with the game’s one glaring flaw.
Sorry, Persona fans: you won’t be dating new waifus and husbandos until next year. Atlus announced today that Persona 5 will be out in North America on February 14, 2017.
Atlus just announced that its P5 anime will be titled Persona 5 The Animation: The Day Breakers, will be a prologue, and will hit Japanese TV this September, right before the game is released. It was first announced at last year’s Tokyo Game Show.
You thought the last Persona 5 trailer was amazing? It was. Ditto for this latest one. Check out this new gameplay, new characters, and sweet, sweet user interface.
Atlus just announced the drop date for Persona 5. The game will be out in Japan on September 15. As of writing, the Western release date, however, still hasn’t yet been revealed.
Over the weekend, Persona fans got some tremendous news: the next game in Atlus’s quirky series would be out in July, not just for PS4 but for PC as well. Then they found out it was all a big lie.
How many games do you know that manage to combine Jungian psychology, Japanese school-life and urban legends? Just like me, the Persona series isn’t as popular in the West as Final Fantasy, but it’s been around just as long (since 1987), and is arguably much more interesting.
I was going to record commentary for my play through of Ace Team’s action-packed love letter to terrible ‘70s science fiction movies, but The Deadly Tower of Monsters brought its own, and it makes the game.
It’s a new year. Can you believe it? Sure you can. While you ponder how you’ll spend it, here is what some of Japan’s most famous game creators hope to accomplish.
Legend of Legacy, a terribly titled new video game that’s out for the 3DS today, is as close as we’ve gotten to a new SaGa game in a very long time. I really wish it was better.
As Kotaku previously reported, Shin Megami Tensei IV Final is a totally new game. We get a very (I mean very) brief look at game play in this debut trailer.
Slated for release in Japan next year, Shin Megami Tensei IV Final isn’t a “definitive edition” of the previously released Shin Megami Tensei IV. It’s an entirely new game set in the same world, featuring a completely different era and setting, all new characters, a branching storyline and multiple endings.
If it weren’t a severe breach of protocol I’d just put the giant YES up at the top of the review. But it is. So I won’t.
