This is what Samurai Warriors 4 looks like on PS4

Yesterday we got some still images of Samurai Warriors 4's nicer PS4 version. Today? One better. Moving images. Film!

So it's more Atelier Shallie footage you want

Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea releases in Japan next week, and Gust has seen fit to provide another glimpse of the PS3 role-player prior to the July 17 launch. It looks and sounds just lovely. The music, in particular, tugs at my heartstrings. I'm a sucker for a soulful Celtic refrain. Now if we could only get confirmation of a western release. That would be just swell.

Okay, we get it: Samurai Warriors 4 is pretty

Our friends at Koei Tecmo shared some images of Samurai Warriors 4 today, and good lord are they pretty. In fact, I think I'm going to tape these to the ceiling above my bed so I can gaze upon their majesty while I fall asleep tonight. October can't come soon enough.

Fi revealed to be playable in Hyrule Warriors

As I've discussed many times before, I like the idea of Fi in theory, in terms of her character design (that skating was awesome), and her place in the story. But in practice, she ended up being a 40 hour long tutorial that w...

Ride wolves & sticky hand slap fools with Midna in Hyrule Warriors

Midna is pretty brutal in Hyrule Warriors. PETA won't be happy about her riding wolves. Less happy about tossing one as a projectile. Then there's the 25 cent machine sticky hand coming out her head. It'll be covered in dirt and won't stick to a thing in a day.  Check out trailers for Link, Zelda, Impa, Lana, and Agitha.

Tecmo Koei changes their name to Koei Tecmo in the US, too

In case you missed it, Tecmo Koei changed their name to Koei Tecmo in the UK, to better reflect their original Japanese moniker. I said it was only a matter of time until the US branch did the same thing -- and as of last nig...

Ar Nosurge: Ode to an Unborn Star also coming to North America

Last week, Ar Nosurge: Ode to an Unborn Star received confirmation of a European launch, but no specific news of a North American release. Well, that didn't last long. Koei Tecmo America has announced the Gust ...

Can't get enough of these Hyrule Warriors screenshots

This is one of those games that's just plain fun to look at, wouldn't you say? The Japanese Hyrule Warriors website has been updated with loads of new screenshots, and a look at (premium) alternate costumes for Zelda and Link...

Ar Nosurge: Ode to an Unborn Star is coming to Europe, but US release uncertain

Ar Nosurge: Ode to an Unborn Star is a sci-fi/fantasy RPG from Tecmo Koei Europe that may or may not be releasing in the US. Figured we'd get that out of the way for anyone who might be interested after reading the synopsis. ...

Tecmo Koei Europe is changing their name to Koei Tecmo

Remember when Namco Bandai (or was it Bandai Namco) changed their name? Well Tecmo Koei is doing the same thing, as their European branch is changing their title to -- wait for it -- Koei Tecmo Europe. For years it was known ...

Hyrule Warriors may be reskinned Dynasty Warriors, but it's pretty

It is exactly Dynasty Warriors, but pretty enough that I almost want to play it regardless. And I'm not even a huge Zelda fan. Also, this is going to make so much money.

Hyrule Warriors is more Warriors than Hyrule photo
Hyrule Warriors is more Warriors than Hyrule
by Dale North

You knew that upcoming Wii U title Hyrule Warriors would be a blend of Tecmo Koei's Dynasty Warriors and Nintendo's Legend of Zelda. But I'm here to tell you that the gameplay is much more like Dynasty Warriors than I thought it would be. Not that that's a bad thing.

The Zelda side is like the yummy icing on the top.

Nintendo and Tecmo explain how Hyrule Warriors happened

I'm still surprised Hyrule Warriors exists and it's not because of the gratuitous cleavage. My favorite Zelda director, Eiji Aonuma, is apparently supervisor on the Tecmo project, which is being produced by Hisashi Koinuma an...
