Namco teases new Vita RPG Ray Gigant from Demon Gaze dev

Demon Gaze developer Experience has been busy on the Vita since with Operation Abyss: New Tokyo Legacy (and its upcoming sequel in Japan), but there are no shortages of dungeons to crawl or publishers to team with, so Bandai...

Bandai Namco is behind new space robot MOBA Supernova

You can play Supernova today. The MOBA from developer Primal Game Studios is publisher Bandai Namco's next push into the realm of free-to-play (you'll remember the Gundam Vs-like 2-on-2 arena fighter Rise of Incarnates). Nam...

Majora's Mask bumped by God Eater from atop Japanese sales charts

It wasn't a long reign -- just one week, in fact -- but it was a good one. Majora's Mask 3D has to settle for second place on the Japanese sales charts. God Eater 2: Rage Burst is the new ruler. In its second w...

Flex those muscles, Machamp

This is vaguely the same footage of Pokkén Tournament we've seen over the past couple weeks, but it's a direct capture of the game, so what the hell. Good recap of the current roster, though do note that the voice over and text are in Japanese. Long way to go before this'll get localized. What's going on with Pikachu (starting at 1:25)? That expression is Kirby-in-the-USA angry.

A trademark has been filed for Soldiers' Soul

This should be prefaced by saying that trademark news should always be taken with a grain of salt. With that out of the way, we might have a heads-up as to what the next game in the widely beloved Souls series is. In Europe, ...

Pokkén strikes Japanese arcades this summer

Off-screen Pokkén Tournament footage has Gardevoir-on-Gardevoir action

As a man of simple tastes, my big takeaway from Pokkén Tournament's location test in Japanese arcades was Pikachu wearing shorts, but, I get it: game mechanics are important too. This off-screen video from seadraDS ha...

There's a lot of lava in Tekken 7's arcade intro

Although I haven't gotten into the mainline Tekken games for a while (I've always favored Tag), Tekken 7 is looking pretty great. In this new intro video for the arcade version, you'll be able to see Kazuya and Hei...

My interview with the voice of Vegeta didn't go so well photo
My interview with the voice of Vegeta didn't go so well
by Bill Zoeker

I was surprised to find myself given the opportunity to interview Christopher Sabat; the founder of voice over studio, Okratron500, and the voice actor for Vegeta, and many other Dragon Ball characters.

I've been a huge Dragon Ball fan for years, if you couldn't tell from the Just Saiyan series we once did, so this was very exciting for me. Perhaps my nerves got to me, or perhaps I'm just rusty from not having done any interviews for a while, but this did not go well. I didn't get the impression that Chris liked me very much.

If you want actual information on Dragon Ball Xenoverse, just click here.

[Disclosure: This interview took place at a Bandai Namco event held at a venue in San Francisco that I forgot the name of. It was catered by a food truck, but I wasn't very hungry. They started serving free alcoholic cocktails at 4:30. Chris was great sport with this video. I didn't actually stalk him.]

Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin is more than just a remaster photo
Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin is more than just a remaster
by Alessandro Fillari

I'll be the first to say it: it's going to be the year of Souls. With the release of Bloodborne only a month away, which looks to redefine the experience along with its wonderful change of setting, From Software has been busy as of late. But that's not stopping the studio from re-releasing its previous title Dark Souls II for new audiences on new hardware.

Recently, the developers released an update for existing versions of Dark Souls II for all players, adding in an invasion faction, characters, and even new encounters. Of course, this is to ease them into what Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin has to offer. Though there's been little information about what to expect from this revisit, the folks behind the title had a lot to say about it.

At a special Bandai Namco Games event last week, Destructoid got to go hands-on with the new and improved version of Dark Souls II and chat with Bandai Namco global producer Atsuo Yoshimura. Though many see it as simply a remaster, From Software thinks of it as much more.

Gundam Vs-like 2-on-2 arena fighter Rise of Incarnates on Steam

Namco took the format of Gundam Vs. and brought it west with a new IP, the free-to-play Rise of Incarnates.  After some time in beta, Rise of Incarnates is now in Early Access. And unlike some games ...

Glasses, tattoos, origins: A taste of Bloodborne's character creator

In this short runthrough of Bloodborne's character editor, IGN was able to create a Harry Potter lookalike now that glasses are an option in the game. That's a worthwhile addition, but it's the "Origin" (i.e., class) option ...

These first 18 minutes of Bloodborne make me feel all tingly

From Software's latest action-RPG looks to replicate the butthole-puckering tense gameplay that originated with its predecessors in the Souls series. IGN posted the first 18 minutes of gameplay (minus character creation...

Pokkén arcade controller resembles Wii U GamePad

Well, maybe not exactly. It's certainly no fightstick, but it's also wider than your standard controller. Even still, the setups at the Pokkén Tournament location tests are giving me serious Wii U vibes. They may ...
