When a company sells an optional add-on to a product, one usually assumes that it is just that -- optional. According to Famitsu, however, the PlayStation Vita's expensive memory cards aren't something you can just ignore, wi...


Try these on for game names: "If I Were in a Sealed Room With a Girl" and "Code of Princess" I love how Japan can just throw together some English words and make us accept it as something that makes sense. Both of these title...

Around this time last night was the first we've ever heard of this game and now we've got the first batch of screenshots. Famitsu is all over Persona 4 The Golden, just as they were with all the other series games. Now they h...


D3 Publisher has a brand new Onechanbara game in the works, and it'll be ditching series heroine Aya for a pair of vampire sisters, Kagura and Saaya. I doubt many people will notice the difference, since anime children with m...


[Update: Famitsu has put some images of the game on its website, so head over there to check them out. I'm not changing my stupid mock-up header, because I worked so hard on it.] Grasshopper Manufacture would be hard pre...


Famitsu has revealed two stages for the upcoming Sonic Generations -- Chemical Plant and Stardust Speedway. A bunch of rather dirty scans have hit the 'net as well, so check those out for your first glimpse. Looking forward t...


C'mon! Why tease us with games you've barely started working on yet? This whole time we've been hearing about Final Fantasy Versus XIII could be counted as one long tease if you consider that the team at Square Enix hasn't ev...


What to see what a PSP game blown up to HD on the PS3 looks like? Well, you're going to have to work for it. In a recent Famitsu Ustream broadcast you'll find footage of this first of what will hopefully be many PSP-to-PS3...


Japanese rag Famitsu has detailed Nintendo's May update to the Nintendo 3DS, which will finally bring the 3DS eShop -- well over a month after the system's launch. How nice of Nintendo to grant us this favor.  As well as...

The latest issue of Famitsu has hit the shelves in Japan and it features four pages on a new Resident Evil title, Resident Evil Revival Selection. Well, okay, it's probably not a "new" game. What we're hearing is that th...


There's a saucy new bunch of Last Guardian screens for you to gawp at like fools. While you do that, I'm going to construct a pillow fort to hide in. I'm going to just come out and say it. That dog/bat/chicken creature? It fr...


This week's Famitsu has some hot new details on Team ICO's The Last Guardian. It feels like this game has been quietly in development since man first learned to walk upright, but the Japanese press got a good look at it and h...


Hey, remember when I said that this post about Catherine's retail bonuses would be the last time I'd gush like a hype-addled fanboy? Apparently I wrong, because a surprise reveal in Famitsu details Catherine's out-of-story ga...


Quirky Japanese dev Acquire, responsible for the likes of Way of the Samurai and the decent portions of Tenchu, has just revealed its newest PlayStation Portable game: Akiba's Trip. It had been teasing the game earlier with m...

It took a while, but the hype machine for Atlus' sexy new action-puzzler Catherine had recently (and finally) shifted into "providing actual gameplay details" mode. Screens were shot, copy was written, and...let's just say th...

Hey! Remember Catherine, the awesomely sexy new game from Atlus and the people who made Persona? Yeah, that one! With the trailer! Well, Famitsu has new screenshots and details for you to devour with your eyes, which include ...


When I posted about Tokyo Jungle yesterday, I noted that the game promised something called "hunting action." Many of you took this to mean that Tokyo Jungle was yet another contender for Monster Hunter's dominance of the mon...


Words cannot express how much I want Catherine right now. Famitsu, the world's most prematurely-scanned game rag, has splattered a saucy new trailer and a sack full of screens onto the internet, and I'll be damned if this ga...


The latest issue of Famitsu has hit stands and it contains news on a sequel to the brilliant Half-Minute Hero. Called "Yuusha 30 Second" (the Japanese title for the original being "Yuusha 30"), there is slim but promising inf...
