$6M isn't enough to make Shenmue 3 'gorgeous visually'

$6.3 million isn't enough for Shenmue creator Yu Suzuki. Talking to Eurogamer, Suzuki said that while the game will be crafted in line with the funds available to it, the game "doesn't have to be gorgeous visually."

 
Big in Japan
Like a kidney stone through the urethra of my life, another Tokyo Game Show has passed. We saw some great things in Japan: katsudon, vape stores, attempted park fights, coming at the king, and video games. Some of those video...   read

Persona 5: New character, multiple villains & in-game social media

Welp, we got the trailer and the into-2016-delay for Persona 5 out of Tokyo Game Show 2015. Not unexpected. There are some more details and a good look at new characters in the latest Famitsu. Most of the gallery below is stuff visible in ...

CONFIRMED: Star Ocean 5 lady wears clothes

Back when Square Enix revealed Star Ocean 5, I recall a few Destructoid editors debating whether the green-haired gal's checkered outfit was half skin-toned or, you know, it was just actual skin. It seems we weren't the only ones wondering ...

Final Fantasy Agito reborn as Type-0 Online

After recently announcing plans to abandon Final Fantasy Agito, Square Enix has unveiled its successor, Final Fantasy Type-0 Online, which the publisher is branding as an "evolution." In development at Chinese MMO house Perfect World, ...

Persona 5's opening theme is sooo good

In case you haven't heard, Persona 5 has been delayed until summer, giving us all plenty of time to do other things -- like watching this video featuring footage of the RPG's opening cinematic and its theme tune, a lovely jazz number compos...

 
Tokyo Game Show hands-on
Candy Crush is like, bad, right? I mean, I'll still suggest to my mother that she should read a book instead of wasting time on that crap (talk about some role reversal), but it's difficult to dislike the game with any inten...   read

RPGs that are hard af
As I spend the week demoing games that are entirely in Japanese, I accept that I'm not going to understand a lot of things. I know the kanji for "forest" and that's the extent of my fluency with the language. Dialogue's the f...   read

Criminal Girls hands-on
While Japan is exoticized elsewhere as a land of weird sex stuff, Criminal Girls 2 doesn't feel that foreign, given that the original game got a western release. And it's probably the perviest game I came across (not literall...   read

PES preview
Who would have thought that Tokyo Game Show, rife with interesting and weird games as it is, would lure Steven and I to try Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 (or, Winning Eleven 2016 as it's called here)? The Konami booth h...   read

TGS hands-on
I was surprised at Tokyo Game Show. It wasn't that there were melon-breasted anime women making out with each other in a trailer casually playing all about Sony's booth. It was that the line for Gravity Rush (Gravity Daze her...   read

TGS hands-on
Next year is the 20th anniversary of Resident Evil (Biohazard here in glorious Nippon) and the only Resident Evil game dated for 2016 at the moment is the newly announced Biohazard: Umbrella Corps. It is an online, competitiv...   read

Tokyo Game Show hands-on
While Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain isn't an insignificant time sucker as is, it did launch missing its competitive online multiplayer component, Metal Gear Online, which was delayed until October 6 on consoles and January 2016 on PC. Brett and I got our hands on the thing at Tokyo Game Show and immediately ran back in line for a second go like giddy schoolchildren.   read

Dark Souls III looks good at Tokyo Game Show

I'm with Chris in that I don't see myself getting tired of From Software's action-RPGs anytime soon. Fatigue hasn't set in yet. That said, the opening areas of Dark Souls III aren't exactly fresh. See for yourself! This footage from TGS 201...

Lookin' real good, Nioh

What stands out to you at Tokyo Game Show 2015? Nioh, yeah? It's got that Onimusha / Souls thing going for it, which is a damn good thing to have. More details have come out for the Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja action-RPG, as reported by 4Game...

 
Ratchet and Clank
As far as the action bits go, Clank generally takes the backseat while Ratchet is doing his thing. Sure, Clank facilitates some of it, but it's a tempered role. He's a sidekick who knows his job. That makes the relationship w...   read

Tokyo Game Show
Konami's website has added the new Metal Gear Online gameplay debuted at Tokyo Game Show. There's even a breakdown of the things that Brett and I didn't understand in our earlier hands-on preview, like the Bounty Hunter mode...   read

Star Wars
While everyone's waiting for that one Star Wars game this fall, there's another new(ish) experience meant to transport you to a galaxy far, far away. It won't scratch the same itch, but it's immersive, flashy, and unabas...   read

Cosplay
There are so many good looking people at Tokyo Game Show that it's hard to focus on the more important six new seasonal varieties of Boss coffee that we haven't tried yet. Granted, these are professional cosplayers and booth ...   read

Miracle Girls Festival
Sega's Miracle Girls Festival borrows from all over the place. The rhythm game features girls from a number of different anime, and it employs the same engine as Project Diva titles. If you're familiar with all of t...   read

Ghost in the Shell shooter adds words to its title ahead of western release

Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex First Connection Online is being called Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex – First Assault Online for its 2016 western release. Yes, that's a push back from the earlier 2015 date, though th...

 
Monster Hunter Stories
In a lot of ways, Monster Hunter Stories doesn't necessarily feel like Monster Hunter. It shouldn't; it's different. The Monster Hunter series that has grown an immense following basks in constant action and team-or...   read

TGS Gallery
Tokyo Game Show feels pretty good this year. Sure, it's a far cry from the extravagance of ten years ago and before, but it's not the all-mobile wasteland it was doomed to be according to some Internet dudebros. It feels heal...   read

Digimon
When in Rome, do as the Romans do. When in Tokyo, make it rain yakitori. That was my modus operandi at Bandai Namco's office. Rather than strangely assaulting passersby with a meat barrage, I limited my chicken chuckin' (cluc...   read

The Fighting Animes
The Saint Seiya series has been going strong for nearly 30 years in Japan. Those elsewhere might know it as Knights of the Zodiac. Brett Makedonski and myself don't know it from Adam, though the maintained '80s anime art styl...   read

We are here!
Pale American guys blogging about Japanese video games is a thing that is happening!  It hasn't stopped raining in 24 hours, hence our sloppy Mary Poppins cosplay and moistness. If you've never trekked into Tokyo Game Sh...   read

After The Last Gaurdian's modest resurrection at E3 2015, quiet. Understandably, some people are unsure about the veracity of the thing, strung along for so long. Team ICO's new company, Gen Design, tweeted about the PS4 game's presence at...
