Dokuro releases on PS Vita October 16

Maybe I missed the announcement of Dokuro somewhere along the line, because I think I would have remembered this. Developed by GungHo Online Entertainment, Dokuro is a an puzzle platformer where a small, but mighty skeleton defies his master to rescue a princess from a forced marriage to the Dark Lord. Largely unaware of his existence, the Princess will push ever forward through the castle while Dokuro must protect her by clearing obstacles and defeating enemies with the use of a magic potion which temporarily transforms him into a dashing hero.

Looks damn cute, and GungHo is promising a lot of content in the release, which they state has around 150 levels to complete. When I get a Vita, there's a good chance I'll snag this. In the meantime, you'll be able to grab it on October 16 for $19.99 through PSN.

Princesses, Dark Lords, menacing castles, dashing Prince Charmings -- you've seen it all before, right?But what if I told you the dashing prince was actually a skeletal servant of the Dark Lord, who, after a moral conundrum, decided to save the princess himself, and turn into a Prince Charming in the process?Enter Dokuro -- a wholly interesting concept for the Vita with a few mechanical problems.more

Namco has made another Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures

Coming to PS3, 360, Wii U, and 3DS this fall, a sequel to "an emotionless venture that's devoid of any soul or effort." I guess Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures, which is based on the new Pac-Man television series, did well enough to warrant a sequel.more

That Banjo-Kazooie spiritual successor 'fell to bits'

Too good to be true, I worried, when first hearing about a spiritual successor to the Banjo-Kazooie series that was to be made by former Rare staffers. "Mingy Jongo." Perhaps that name still rests in your memory. I had forgot...more
