Light and delicious

Bounce, baby, bounce, b-bounce, b-bounce
In the world of Senran Kagura, excess is the rule. The outfits are skimpy, the plot threads are ludicrous, and the breasts are laughably large, so huge in fact that you wonder how the skimpy bras the girls are eventually stri...
XSEED publishing 3DS RPG as a digital-only title
It seems Rune Factory 4's trip across the pond was postponed more so than cancelled, and the role-playing game will be turning up on European shores fairly soon.
Speaking with Siliconera, XSEED vice president Ken Be...

Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus is cutting a trail to North America on October 14, XSEED Games announced today. The PlayStation Vita brawler will strike Europe the very next day.
The story is a continuation of Senran Kagura Burst, wherein groups of teenage ninja girls fight one another with stuff like giant frogs and huge stacks of pancakes. You know, because reasons.

I believe it's spelled 'manga'....
Forbidden Magna (3DS) is coming to Japan in October courtesy of the team that made Rune Factory and Marvelous AQL. Xseed expressed interest in localizing it earlier this year, but nothing new on that front, so here's a trailer that at once intrigues me with its strategy mechanics and repulses me with its horrifying character models.
That ground-pound also sure is something
Marvelous is keeping its cheeky money-printing machine going strong with Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson. The latest effort from self-proclaimed "huge boob producer" Kenichiro Takaki is due to be unleashed in Japan starti...
Also, new costumes
I actually played a bunch of the Soul Sacrifice demo, but never ended up diving into the full thing. Soul Sacrifice Delta has been updated with a new encounter and some whacked out threads (definitely some of the weirder...

Ninja gals show off their assets at E3 2014
The Senran Kagura series takes fan-service to new heights in the upcoming brawler Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus and Senran Kagura Bon Appetít!, a rhythm cooking game. Both titles were available to demo at XSEED's booth at E3 2014.
A rose by any other name
A lot of folks seem pretty confused about what's going on with Harvest Moon. And that's perfectly understandable, because it's a tad complicated. Please allow me to try to explain the situation.
XSEED recently announced a far...

Coming to 3DS this winter
Call it stereotypical of me if you will, but I'm a huge fan of Harvest Moon and its spinoffs -- even the wannabe games. That's why I'm so excited to see Story of Seasons releasing via XSEED this upcoming winter. After 18 year...

Reminder that it's also digital only
I was never able to really get into Soul Sacrifice when I played it around this time last year, which probably had something to do with Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate still getting plenty of attention from me at that point in tim...

The plot of Shinovi Versus unfolds shortly after the events of Senran Kagura Burst, revisiting t...
Coming to Japan on July 31
IA/VT Colorful certainly lives up to its name. The kaleidoscopic rhythm game from Marvelous AQL stars vocaloid idol IA and is nothing if not vibrant.
While the visuals are certainly eye-catching, those bullet hell-esque elem...
Publisher 'may or may not' have an announcement planned
XSEED boss Ken Berry once called the prospect of localizing Senran Kagura Burst a "scary proposition." Due to the title's subject matter and the conservative culture in the US, Berry surmised a western release had the "potent...
Once more, with feeling
The original Half-Minute Hero was a very special and intriguing game. It boiled down an entire genre to its barest essentials, reducing the interminably long JRPG to just thirty seconds of gameplay.
Both a heartfelt tribute a...

So many colors!
Hatsune Miku may be the queen of digital songstresses, but she's by no means the only act in town. Many are looking to join the party, like IA/VT Colorful, a rhythm game starring vocaloid idol IA.
The musical title features 60 different tracks to get players bumping and grinding when the game arrives in Japan on July 31. Marvelous AQL has yet to announce a western release.
This is a brawler, by the way
Marvelous AQL didn't shy away from titillation with apparent porn game Senran Kagura Burst's European box art.
The initial plan was even more blatant. The original box art design, prototyped above, was a slip cover. The outer...
