A new Gauntlet game is coming from the makers of Magicka

Warner Bros. Interactive has announced a brand new entry in the Gauntlet franchise, set to arrive on Steam later this year -- SteamOS and Steam Machines were specifically mentioned. Local and online play will be supported for up to four people, who will be able to select from the Warrior, Wizard, Valkyrie, and Elf classes.

They all apparently have their own unique strengths and weaknesses still, and procedural dungeons and class combos have been namedropped as features. Arrowhead Game Studios has been tapped, who you may recognize as the developers of Magicka and The Showdown Effect. The game looks pretty rough at the moment, but hopefully it smooths out before the final release.

Persona Q coming November 25, let's loop the opening until then

Persona Q, the chibi 3DS amalgam of Persona 3 and Persona 4 characters, has a North American release date: November 25. The opening is still amazing. The premium edition is pretty nice, too. Shadow of the Labyrinth has won me over since its announcement -- or maybe it's just the dearth of Persona -- so I'm pretty ready.more
