Mind Zero dungeon crawls to PC this March

Once upon a time, it seemed as though many Japanese game studios were perfectly content to ignore the PC market. But times are a-changin'. More and more all the time, eastern developers are porting their wares from consoles to computers in ...

The PSP is still alive and kicking with Class of Heroes 3

The PlayStation Portable may be several centuries old at this point, but people are still making games for it -- or at least localizing stuff that came out in Japan several years ago. Such is the case with Class of Heroes 3, which is coming...

Mind Zero
At a glance, it's easy to look at Mind Zero and compare it to the Persona series given its art style and the narrative advertised within early trailers and promotional materials. And you wouldn't be incorrect in declaring tha...   read

Pull off strangers' clothes for fun and profit in Akiba's Trip

Being an otaku has its drawbacks, chief among them apparently is that they're the favorite food of the "Synthisters," blood-sucking beings who walk in the daytime. Now, you, a newly-bitten Synthister, must fight back against those who stole...

Akiba's Trip 2 acquires a flashy PlayStation 4 trailer

Akiba's Trip: Undead & Undressed is a game where you, erm, beat the clothes of vampires. You see, their skin is weak to sunlight, so forcibly removing their clothes makes perfect sense actually. Earlier this year, XSEED revealed plans ...

Download No Heroes Allowed for free on PS Vita

The latest installment in Acquire's What Did I Do To Deserve This, My Lord!? franchise (formerly known as "Holy Invasion of Privacy, Badman!") sadly isn't a dungeon strategy game like its quirky predecessors. But it still looks all right, ...

Get lost in this Rain developer diary

Persona-styled JRPG Mind 0 gets trailer

Really, "Persona-styled" might be doing this game from Acquire and Class of Heroes developer Zerodiv a bit too much justice, because it reads like a knockoff. The cast is a group of highschoolers (not uncommon for a JRPG set in modern Japa...
