After only seeing a little more Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain gameplay when Kojima was onstage for Sony's Tokyo Game Show press conference, it's nice to see this lengthy, ten-plus minutes of side mission that seems to... more
Capcom is so dandy when it comes to giving fans what they ask for. And by dandy, I mean it's some kind of videogame developer Wishmaster giddily slapping its fans across their faces with its slimy tendril dreadlocks and iron... more
Look at the beautiful screenshots in our gallery of newly announced game Yakuza Restoration, known here as Ryugagotku Ishin. Announced here at TGS, the game is coming to PS3, Vita, and PS4. You can bet the shiny ones are fro... more
Check out this short clip I filmed at Tokyo Game Show. It comes from a small area of Microsoft's booth where they're showing some popular games running on Surface units. While it's not exactly smooth, I'm surprised at how we... more
Deep Down is unquestionably my most-wanted next-gen title. It's not even close.
This Tokyo Game Show trailer shows what Steven covered earlier today: future New York City, stabbing freaks, a multi-person battle with a dragon... more
Oh, wow! This new Capcom game from Breath of Fire's Makoto Ikehara and Ace Attorney's Motohide Eshiro is going to be ... for iOS. Shoot.
Announced at the Tokyo Game Show, Blade Fantasia is a fantasy role-playing title that's... more
I'm so happy we're getting Dark Souls II. I say that knowing full well that pain and suffering await, as evidenced by this new Tokyo Game Show trailer.
Much of the promotional footage so far has focused on the new lighting s... more
Sega is showing off new title Phantasy Star Nova at Tokyo Game Show this week. I know you'll instinctually hit the play button on the trailer -- and you should -- but the screenshots are the star of the show here. They look ... more
[Update: A trailer for this sequel has been shared by Sony. Watch it above.]
I was in a meeting when this tease was shown at Sony's TGS booth. We're not sure what the tease is for, but it looks and sounds like a new Gravity ... more
Watch on as the booth staff of Sony's massive 2013 Tokyo Game Show floor booth bow in such an orderly fashion that it looks like art. I watched them do this three times, never missing a beat. They put me in a trance with thi... more
The very first thing I did at Tokyo Game Show today was check in with Square Enix. That's what kind of gamer I am. In my briefing it was casually mentioned that a new Final Fantasy XV trailer was being shown at the show toda... more
In a surprise move that surprised absolutely no one, Sega recently unveiled a new entry in its criminal action series entitled Yakuza Restoration. Today, we get our first look at the upcoming game, which eschews its pre... more
We recently learned about Final Fantasy Agito, an Android/iOS game in development at Square Enix that is a companion to Final Fantasy Type-0 (which was formerly known as Final Fantasy Agito XIII and was a mobile game before ... more
Check out the full roster of bros that'll be smashing each other in the face when PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale launches later this year. A new trailer has come from the Tokyo Game Show and it gives us a good look at all the characters.
I really am quite looking forward to this by now. Really, how can you not love a fighting game with Sackboy in it? more
The above trailer currently has 609 dislikes compared to 370 likes on Youtube. Something tells me that, two years later, people are still sore. That DmC just can't catch a break with fans.
I'm still pretty pumped, myse... more
Capcom has posted the extended Tokyo Game Show trailer for Resident Evil Revelations, and you can be sure that it's fun for the whole family.
Rachel has been loathed by many fans, and liked by others. I'll admit, there's som... more
It was the last hour of press day at Tokyo Game Show. I just got finished playing Sonic Generations 3DS and was on my way out of the convention center when I came across this. No explanation, no warning -- just strippers.
So what were they promoting at that booth? I have no idea. There were no games at the booth so I always just kept walking right past it. In any case, I have the best luck ever! more
After the first long TGS work day were thrown on a bus, driven to the bay, put on a boat, and taken out to sea. Our mission? To play the PlayStation Vita. Too bad we didn't do that. It just didn't work out. Still, we had a g... more
Several questions have been swirling about the latest Monster Hunter games for 3DS and their potential requirement of *rolls eyes* the new slide pad attachment. Since Monster Hunter is literally the biggest thing in Japanese... more
Just when you thought you could retire your PSP for a Vita, Konami goes and announces a new game. During events at the Tokyo Game Show Konami announced a Suikoden series game called Genso Suikoden: Tsumugareshi Hya... more
Rounding out the Dark Souls prologue series is the final clip, though for the sake of convenience, Namco Bandai has simply thrown them all together into one video. Enjoy, if you haven't imposed a media blackout on yourself.
For everyone else who can't get enough, do check out Allistair's coverage of the first thirty minutes of Dark Souls from Tokyo Game Show. more
We f*cked up royally.
A bunch of incredible new Skyward Sword videos came out a few days ago, but we failed to post any of them. Chances are you've seen some of these by now, but if you haven't, I'll cut to the chase.
The ab... more
A new trailer for Ninja Theory's controversial DmC has been released, and it gives Dante white hair ... sort of. It seems that our gunslinging hero gets a snowy dome when he enters a particular gameplay mode, as evidenced by... more
Even though there were only two games that ever used it and it was expensive as hell, I really loved the Steel Battalion controller. I love mechs so much and I always figured that controller was the closest I would ever get... more
Destructoid has braved the heat, 90 percent humidity and multiple train line transfers to bring you Tokyo Game Show coverage. We've just arrived and we're ready to rock. Kind of. First I have to set Hamza straight on a few things.
Tell us what you want to see and hear about. Anything is fine. I know PlayStation Vita is at the top of the list, so we're working on that now. Stay tuned! more
Team Destructoid made a quick stop at Capcom first thing this morning here at Tokyo Game Show where we discovered what we're calling the best swag of TGS 2011. Capcom's Seth Killian guided us through as we slowly unwrapped ... more
It seems like all the major fighting franchises are making a revival in some form or way. One of the biggest in the fighting genre, Soulcalibur V, is on the way back too and I got to go hands-on with it. I really suck at fig... more
The game formerly known as PixelJunk Lifelike shall now be referred to as PixelJunk 4am. Man, I don't think I've even been up that late in years.
According to Baiyon, who is working on this audio-visual thing for PlayStation... more
After seeing the results of a year's worth of work on Ninja Gaiden 3 we thought Team Ninja's evening presentation was over. They tricked us and unveiled Dead or Alive 5 and their pre-TGS event tonight. Were we surprised? Not... more
We're only a week out from Tokyo Game Show, and Capcom's already gearing up for some Street Fighter x Tekken reveals.
The publisher has released two trailers today, featuring torn pieces of paper and... stuff. Eagle-ey... more
Oh, how is this promotional video for The Devil's Third strange? Let me count the ways.
First, it features Japanese talent Hard Gay. That should have tipped me off from the beginning that there was no way I would unders... more
Epic Games sent over this video which shows elements of the Bulletstorm demo on the floor at Tokyo Game Show. Narrated by Producer Tanya Jessen, it shows off the "Bouncer," which basically fires a cannonball. But beyond... more
Here's the second half of our look at the cosplayers and crossplayers of TGS, as edited by the lovely and talented Dale North.
I forgot how crowded this whole scene was. All the cosplayers were gathered outside, in-between h... more
One of my favorite experiences at TGS didn't happen at TGS. It happened at a strange restaurant where you order your food on an iPad and the beer flows like wine. That's where I met up with Tyrone Rodriguez and Mike Lambert ... more
I'm really looking forward to El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron. Cel-shaded beat 'em ups based on obscure Biblical books aren't games that you get to see every day, so I've got high expectations for this bizarre little title.
Here's a trailer and some screenshots for the Ignition-published title. Does it look hot to you? It looks bloody hot to us! more
Tokyo Game Show is one of the biggest videogame conventions of the year. Our boys Dale North, Tim Sheehy and Jonathan Holmes rocked the show while the home team provided you all with the latest new screens and videos.
Of eve... more
Here's the first in a two part TGS cosplay spectacular, edited by Mr. Dale North. Thanks again, Dale. These videos were brutal to cut together. I think there were over 200 clips in all, hence the two videos.
The amount off c... more
Battle Kid: Fortress of Peril has apparently been kicking around for a while, but I'd never seen it before. It wasn't at PAX East or PAX Prime, and it sure as hell wasn't at E3. However, it does look pretty awesome.
If you c... more
I think we can all agree that we're pretty pumped for whatever the hell Project Dark (a working title) is going to be. And if the trailer above is any indication then it's going to look lot like Demon's Souls. If you're upse... more
So, as it turns out, there is a law in Japan against taking a girl's picture without her permission. Not only did I not know this, but even if I did, I have no idea how to ask a girl in Japanese if I am allowed to take her p... more
Looks like the Tekken series is going into complete global saturation mode. First Street Fighter Vs. Tekken, then Tekken Vs. Street Fighter, and now Tekken Tag 2. I thought that Tekken VS. Street Fighter was supposed to be t... more
Words cannot express how weird I still find Yakuza Of The End, Sega's new zombie-fied take on the Yakuza series. We brought you pictures, cosplay, and a story trailer, but the biggest question in most minds was "How the hell... more
Tucked away in a ignored corner of TGS was Astro Ranger, a rhythm action arcade game from Korea. I was immediately drawn to it. The art direction and general premise here is very reminiscent of Viewtiful Joe, which is a sure... more
In yesterday's Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 interview, Seth Killian told us about some of the new stages for the game. We showed you footage of the Resident Evil stage, but we missed out on Asgard. I went back later to get some foota... more
As you can see in this video, the controls for Nikudan (Japanese title) are pretty solid. The game doesn't seem to tolerate too many sweeping or drastic moves, but fast jabs and bodyblows seem to register just fine. More arc... more
When I first heard about Final Fantasy Legends, I wasn't at Tokyo Game Show. I was on the train. There was a little billboard for the game, which sort of blew my mind. I'm sure that sort of thing is normal for citizens of To... more
Ape Escape Move comes as something of a disappointment. I was really hoping for the reveal of a full-fledged Ape Escape game at TGS. Instead, we get a on-rails shooter with some motion-controlled fan slapping and net snaggin... more
El Shaddai may be my favorite game of the show. Ni No Kuni defintiely comes close, but that's soley based on how beautiful the game looks. El Shaddai doesn't quite reach that mark in the gameplay department, but it wins for ... more
For Ouendan and Elite Beat Agents, the headline is probably all you need to know. Unless you totally hate the music of Michael Jackson, you'll need to buy this game. For those that have never played Elite Beat Agents or its ... more
Ni no Kuni does for Ghibli movies what Uncharted 2 and God of War 3 do for American action films. The game is a first class anime that you can play. All of the backgrounds are coated in beautiful, watercolor-style textures, ... more
