Valkyria Chronicles Remaster looks great in its debut trailer

Sega released the debut trailer for Valkyria Chronicles Remaster, set to arrive on PS4 in Japan on February 10. The original was already gorgeous on PS3, so it's no wonder that it will look even better on PS4. Valkyria Chronicles Remaster w...

Ah Phantasy Star Online 2. Why did you have to be so good when I played you at TGS on PS4? Will you ever see a true western release? It's a possibility, but in the meantime, Japan will enjoy the PS4 version this coming spring, Sega has anno...

Yakuza: Kiwami continues to look great

Every time I see footage for Yakuza: Kiwami, I just want to replay the first game again. It's a shame that we never got the PS3 or Wii U HD remakes, but I'd settle for a worldwide release of this one, as it seems like the best ve...

Project X Zone 2 pre-order bonuses include a challenge stage

What is going on with this Dragon's Crown figure?
