The PS4 and Xbox One won't be out in Japan until next year, but many attendees to last month's Tokyo Game Show got to try out the upcoming consoles and voice their opinions. Here's what they thought.
Among my personal Japan-only favorites is the PlayStation RPG Walk Over My Corpse (Ore no Shikabane wo Koeteyuke). It took sumi-e style graphics, turn-based combat, and a breeding system to make an infinitely replayable classic. Now, a decade-and-a-half after its release, the sequel was playable at this year's TGS.
Ace Combat Infinity is Namco Bandai's upcoming free to play aerial combat game for the PlayStation 3. Project leader Kazutoki Kono says that for this game, they're going back to the roots and standards of the Ace Combat series.
Metal Gear Solid V isn't out yet. Heck, there wasn't even a playable demo at this year's Tokyo Game Show. Until we get our hands on it, all we can do is wait. Good thing there are talented cosplayers to help pass the time.
This weekend at the Tokyo Game Show, some of the best cosplay in Asia was on display. There were those at the TGS event halls, but some of the most talented cosplayers graced the stage at Cosplay Collection Night.
That PS Vita TV sure is a neat little device, huh? The device is hitting Japan this November and will be released elsewhere in Asia next January. But what about the West?
Maybe you won't want all of them. But I'm pretty sure there's something in here for everyone. Have a look and judge for yourself.
Deep Down, Capcom's strange, beautiful, displaced-time online RPG, is going to be free-to-play, and its beta will appear "near the launch of the PlayStation 4 in Japan," Sony's president of worldwide studios said via Twitter after the news was announced at Tokyo Game Show earlier today.
Looking at its gameplay, Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain and its prologue, Ground Zeroes capture the spirit of the Metal Gear series despite worries arising from director Hideo Kojima's announcement that the game would be open world. However, a staple of the series—the exclamation point—was almost not included…
Japan knows a good giant mecha when it sees one. And from the sound of it, the country's gamers are more than pleased with what they are seeing with Titanfall.
Dark Dreams Don't Die, or D4, is an Xbox One exclusive episodic game that tells the story of a time-traveling detective trying to solve and prevent the murder of his wife. Japanese game designer Hidetaka Suehiro, or Swery, is developing this game.
In recent years, there have been many classic game-inspired re-imaginings—from Bionic Commando to DuckTales. At TGS 2013 today, I was able to get my hands on the newest one: Strider.
You know when things do what they are supposed to do well? They might not be the best or the most groundbreaking, but they do what they're supposed to and, most importantly, are enjoyable. That's Wolfenstein: New Order.
If you had dreams of standing up an Xbox One on its side to save valuable desk/shelf/table space, you may want to re-think the layout of your next-gen gaming shrine. Microsoft says that the Xbox One isn’t designed to be used in a vertical orientation.
Today at TGS 2013, I was present for an extended fifteen minute gameplay trailer of the new game by Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami: The Evil Within. I have good news. It was pretty darn scary.
The Xbox one exclusive Dead Rising 3 is still the mood-swinging zombie hack and slash that the previous two games were. At first glance, the game seems rather dark with its nocturnal background and gritty characters, but when the actual gameplay starts, you realize the core gameplay hasn't changed.
