For PS3 and Vita
A month after its North American release in December, The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel is now available across Europe, courtesy of NIS America.
I haven't had a chance to crack open my copy just yet, but it's definit...
Let's go live there
It seems like it's been forever since we last checked in on Stardew Valley, a pixel art farming life simulator/role-playing game that evokes memories of Harvest Moon in those fortunate enough to have played it in its prime (o...
The re-release is finally coming to NA
Years ago, we ran a post about an effort to bring Breath of Fire III's PlayStation Portable version to North America. It began with the phrase "Never give up hope!" Truly words to live by. It's happening! Capcom has announced...
Goodbye, free time
The second game in the Final Fantasy Tactics family can now be found on the Wii U. Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, originally released for the Game Boy Advance in 2003, follows the journey of a boy named Marche after he and hi...
Also, Exorcist and Charioteer
If Bravely Second: End Layer is simply more Bravely Default, I can deal with that. Of course it will have some new stuff to go with its story continuation, including nine new jobs. That includes Guardian, Exorcist, Wizar...
Oh and have some new screens
Square Enix has been peppering in "Active Time Report" updates for some time now, which are basically just big livestreams that detail more information for Final Fantasy XV. Normally I'd be over a gigantic hype campaign ...
Six within a month
Fire Emblem Fates is just a few weeks away (February 19) and I'll finally have a reason to re-glue my face to my 3DS and play nosy match-maker. But the two versions of Fates are just, uh, two of the JRPGs (and adjacent genres...
If one wanted to delve into the world of Final Fantasy for the first time, the barrier to entry is generally rather high. You have a host of 50-hour JRPGs, several daunting MMOs, and a number of complicated and deep tactical spinoffs.
Final Fantasy Explorers tries to ease people into the world of Black and White mages with a different, gentler approach, albeit with its own set of flaws.
Go on, take a piece
Last year, Square Enix promoted Dragon Quest Heroes in Japan with a huge wall of poppable slimes at a metro station. It was the stuff of dreams. (For me, anyway, but then again I see strange things when I sleep.) A similar ca...
Full game will be free on GameJolt
Following last Friday's apology that he rushed to publish FnaF World too early, creator Scott Cawthon has pulled the game from Steam. Unhappy with the quality of the title (despite positive fan reception), Cawthon is currentl...
Free to start
Whenever I describe Pathfinder Adventure Card Game to somebody (usually when I am trying to get them to play it), I start with a caveat. "On its surface, all you really do is flip a card and roll some dice. But for some reaso...
PS4 port coming to Europe, Americas
Hey hey hey, that Valkyria Chronicles Remastered is leaving Japan. The PS4 version of Sega's beloved PS3 turn-based strategy game has been confirmed for release in Europe and the Americas this spring. It'll run you $30 (or $4...
Global domination by Level-5
If Yo-Kai Watch isn't a massive hit outside of Japan, it seems like Level-5 is intent on making it happen.
Nintendo still hasn't boasted about the sales figures yet in the US, which has me wondering whether or not i...
Coming next week in the east
Dragon Quest Builders is massively intriguing. While most Minecraft-like games are usually just straight-up clones from smaller developers, here we have Square Enix and a massively popular property meshed in, and wh...
Announce the localization already
Valkyria: Azure Revolution kind of came out of nowhere. People basically assumed that the series was dead since 2011 when the third game came out (which was Japan-only, by the way), and BAM, Sega announces a brand new upcomin...
'Making changes is not unusual'
With all the controversy surrounding Fire Emblem Fates (what arena of gaming doesn't have controversy surrounding it these days?), Nintendo has finally spoken up on the matter of same-sex relationships and the dreaded dr...
Get your Fred on
A week ago Jordan reported that FNaF World would be out on February 19th but it wouldn't be a Five Nights at Freddy's game without a sudden, “surprising” release date now would it? FnaF World in all its weird, cut...
Valentine's Day-themed event
After a long holiday, Bungie is back to work this week. For the first update of the new year, Destiny will be adding an event not unlike the Festival of the Lost from Halloween. Except since this one is coming in February, it...
The vast majority of the footage so far for Hyrule Warriors Legends has been by way of the 3DS, but it's not exactly the most impressive platform for showing off the new characters. Compliments of NintenDaan on YouTube, we no...
Alright alright alright
Folks, Magitek armor has been confirmed -- nostalgia boosters, engage.
New screens from Final Fantasy XV show the iconic suit in action, with the team battling one. Magitek has shown up in several games after its debut i...
Why is The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings free on Xbox 360 in the US? We don't know (CD Projekt Red hasn't updated its Twitter in nearly two weeks)! But you sure can mosey on to the download link and grab it! I just tested it,...
Shipping Q2 2016
Austin Wintory's music is once again making its way to vinyl. Following his collaboration with iam8bit on Journey's vinyl release, his orchestral soundtrack for The Banner Saga is next in line.
Pre-orders open tomorrow, Janua...
More daily items
Hyrule Wariors Legends is nearly out in Japan, and as a result, more concrete info is coming out of the woodwork. Due to pre-loading, fans have learned that the file size is 16,101 blocks (2GB). Additionally, there's only one...
Fallout 4 is a pretty good open world game that a lot of people are still enjoying weeks after launch, but I couldn't help but feel like it was a downgrade from New Vegas in many ways. Most of you agreed. That's bec...
Props on that packaging
Bravely Second: End Layer (video game names are just the best) hits North America on April 15, 2016, Nintendo confirmed today. If you're in Europe, you'll only have to wait until February 26.
The collector's edition comes wit...
FFVII, X over-represented
The upcoming Monster Hunter-ish Final Fantasy Explorers is a more nondescript, job-system-based affair, but that doesn't mean your favorite characters are absent. While in Trance mode, your character can use previously equip...
The evil Maxim...how familiar
I was reviewing our past coverage of Valkyria: Azure Revolution, Sega's PS4 spin off of the Valkyria Chronicles series, and damn, that bust. Straight up distracting. Onto the news. Famitsu has revealed an antagonist to the ga...
Also, I hope you have a New 3DS
I don't know why it didn't cross my mind, but the upcoming 3DS edition of Hyrule Warriors Legends will not have campaign co-op. This video confirms as much, noting that you can play levels side-by-side with a friend to s...
No save state
More information has come to light regarding the new Pokemon Generation 1 re-releases, particularly as it pertains to save state functionality and connectivity. For starters, players will not have the option for "restore...
Keep 'em coming
I could have sworn one of us had already touched on Knuckle Sandwich, but I guess not. This latest teaser is as fine of time as any to introduce the surreal role-playing game and its prominent noses.
The story, at least initially, has to do with a cult and missing people. Could the two be connected? Playing as a dude who is bored to tears of his new job at the diner, it's on you to investigate.
