Onechanbara Z: Kagura with NoNoNo! coming to PS3

Hey! Remember the Onechanbara series? You know, the game featuring bikini wearing vampire sisters fighting zombies and stuff. Onechanbara Z: Kagura came out for the Xbox 360 a while ago, but it's now finally heading to the PlayStation 3 in Japan. This is an enhanced port, featuring NoNoNo from the Dream Club Zero games.

Regular Show game is an amalgam of old-school genres photo
Regular Show game is an amalgam of old-school genres
by Steven Hansen

Not to be outdone by its contemporary, Adventure Time, and the upcoming Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I DON’T KNOW!, Cartoon Network toon Regular Show is getting a long-titled game of its own, Regular Show: Mordecai and Rigby In 8-Bit Land.

In Regular Show: Mordecai and Rigby In 8-Bit Land, Mordecai and Rigby get transported into some of their favorite video games. The duo will have to use their best skills and unique abilities to traverse the various challenges to escape and return home in this ‘eggscellent’ journey.

I'm less familiar with Regular Show than I am Adventure Time, having only caught a few episodes of the former, but Destructoid's own Tony Ponce raves about the show ad nauseam. In the linked piece, in fact, Tony notes the show's predilection towards retro games, which is quite appropriate for 8-Bit Land. I may not be all that familiar with the show, but I'm more than familiar with the genres it's employing.

Exploring Adventure Time's dungeon because I DON'T KNOW

WayForward is coming with a follow-up to last year's Hey Ice King! Why'd You Steal Our Garbage?!, but it's not quite a sequel. Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I DON'T KNOW is a multiplayer dungeon crawler and, in...

A Regular Show game is happening! Yeah-yuh! photo
A Regular Show game is happening! Yeah-yuh!
by Tony Ponce

In what may very well be the greatest news of 2013 thus far, D3Publisher has announced a partnership with Cartoon Network to publish games based on the greatest television program about a pair of retro-gaming slackers who still live like it's the 80s. D3 most recently handled the distribution of the WayForward-developed Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why'd You Steal Our Garbage?!, and all parties are hoping that some of that same magic will carry over to Cartoon Network's other prime time giant.

I've been waiting for this announcement ever since I was fortunate enough to interview series creator J.G. Quintel almost exactly one year ago. Regular Show is a vehicle for J.G. to incorporate all his favorite old-school pastimes, from cheesy 80s action movies to SEGA Master System gaming. A videogame -- and I don't mean those quick-and-dirty Flash games that flood the CN site -- in the spirit of his childhood favorites is the next logical frontier.

J.G. told me that if there ever was a Regular Show game, he would love for it to be either a classic brawler or a funky rougelike similar to ToeJam & Earl. Both styles sound like they could offer a wealth of possibilities, so I hope that D3 strongly considers those options when it shops around for a developer.

Review: Black Knight Sword photo
Review: Black Knight Sword
by Chris Carter

Within my first thirty minutes of playing Black Knight Sword, I encountered a menu option called "cat head grass," a giant mother eye that eats hearts, and severed skulls in a microwave oven that serve as health power-ups.

Yep, this is definitely a Grasshopper Manufacture and Digital Reality joint.

Adventure Time: HIKWYSOG!?'s Secret Self Portrait Screen

It's feels a little wrong write this post. Publicizing the existence of this "secret screen" obliterates any semblance of secrecy that it once had. I blame Pendleton Ward for this. Some secrets are just too gr...

Review: Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why'd You Steal...
by Jonathan Holmes

Adventure Time is currently my favorite show on television. It offers the same kind of nonchalant surrealism, iconic but expressive characters, and the simple delivery of complex themes that got me interested in videogames in the first place. The potential for Adventure Time to make the jump from animated series to engrossing videogame is staggering. Sadly, that potential has been largely squandered up until this point.

When series creator Pendelton Ward announced that he was working with WayForward, one of the most talented and resourceful small developers in the industry, on creating an Adventure Time game for the DS and 3DS, my expectations immediately shot sky high. Unbelievably, those expectations were largely met. At times, they were even exceeded. Too bad it's all over so soon.
