Usually I wouldn't make this big of a deal over something that is (so far) only releasing in Japan, but Kingdom Hearts Unchained X[chi] is just too cute to pass up. The iOS and Android game is based off a Japan-only... read
For those that have lost faith that a proper Sonic game will ever come out again, please feel comforted in the fact that with videos like these, there is always hope. Honestly, wouldn't you rather play a game that looks like this than the horrors of Sonic Boom?

Lovely Planet is described as "a game of jumping and shooting," which sounds so much more fitting than "first-person shooter." You do shoot your gun at cute little things from a first-person perspective, sure, but I don't wa... read
FranknJohn has to be one of the cutest Kickstarter projects I've seen, especially given the fact that it's a roguelike set in a haunted house full of nods to B-movies. Plus, the titular FranknJohn himself has a stake going t... read
Pre-orders have opened for Good Smile Company's positively adorable Nendoroid Link ahead of the figure's scheduled late-August release this year and I need this.

I have Taiko: Drum Master on PS2, but no drum, so I only get to play when I head down to Japantown and use the wonderfully giant arcade cabinet. Apparently, Japan even gets the series on its phones and tablets, hence this tin... read
