Majesco


With Majesco's money troubles -- the company does not have new games in development for 2015, but is instead continuing to distribute its back catalog -- and the closure of its indie publishing arm Midnight City, the PC hit G...


Majesco Entertainment's fallen on hard times. It had gotten so bad that sources familiar with the publisher's financial situation said the company had become unresponsive and that its leadership had gone reclusive. And, that ...


[Update: According to anonymous sources familiar with the situation at Majesco, things are indeed pretty bleak for the company. Our contacts confirmed a reduction in staff at Majesco and Midnight City, adding any attempt...


We've long known that Flying Wild Hog's Shadow Warrior would one day come to Xbox One and PlayStation 4. That's happening in September, courtesy of Devolver Digital for digital distribution and Majesco at retail. It'll cost $...




Majesco is no longer in danger of being delisted from the NASDAQ stock exchange, thanks to some clever accounting. The Cooking Mama and Zumba Fitness publisher pulled off a reverse stock split last month, reducing its outstan...


We first heard about Cooking Mama 5 last year, and expected to see it out then. Today, Majesco announced that Cooking Mama 5: Bon Appétit will release this September for the 3DS. This will be the second Cooking Mama ga...


Majesco is looking to lure in unsuspecting victims today, as BloodRayne: Betrayal sinks its teeth into the PC market with a Steam release. The polarizing WayForward side-scroller initially landed on PlayStation 3 an...


Majesco has announced that Gardening Mama 2: Forest Friends has shipped to North American retailers where you may offer currency in exchange for a copy.  Maybe it's just because I haven't played a Mama game si...


If you're a "Mama" fan, this is your lucky day -- Majesco is bringing over Gardening Mama 2: Forest Friends. It's headed to the 3DS in April, and will feature 50 new types of flowers, fruits, and vegetables. Of course, a...


Majesco's indie label, Midnight City, has announced that Blood of the Werewolf is heading to Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network Q2 2014. The Metroidvania-style game was released on Steam last year, and the console relea...


Considering the name of Cooking Mama developers Cooking Mama Limited, it was obvious another game would hit a Nintendo console at some point in the future. According to Siliconera, that game is Cooking Mama 5 for the Nintendo...


For a game that hasn't been released yet, Monaco sure has won a lot of awards. It was bestowed with the Seumus McNally Grand Prize and the Excellence in Design award back at GDC 2010. The co-op heist caper game has come...


We have been looking forward to playing Monaco: What's Yours is Mine from the comfort of our own homes for years now. The cooperative stealth-action game has taken some big awards in that time, including the 2010 Independent...


Something as niche as a full-price basketball rhythm game for Kinect sold only 3,000 copies in its debut month? While unfortunate, you can hardly be too surprised. According to the NPD by way of Joystiq, that's how NBA Baller...


This sucks. I got excited when I noticed that there was a new video promoting NBA Baller Beats, ready to post it up with something derisive and vaguely resembling wit (it's a dark room). And then I watched it. I can't be mea...


Our review of Double Dragon: Neon is coming, slowly but surely. The impressions of those on staff who have played it, though, aren't all that positive. But even if the game itself isn't hot to trot, the soundtrack is bloody b...


[Update #2: Bzzt, wrong again! Jake Kaufman has confirmed that Majesco has come through and the soundtrack will be available after the podcast. So get ready to win!][Update: We were alerted to an error in this story. The...


I completely forgot that Double Dragon: Neon was coming out next week, probably because I wasn't totally blown away during my hands-on session back at PAX East. Developer WayForward doesn't seem interested in overhauling the...


Having moved more than 13 million units worldwide Majesco is looking to tighten its stranglehold on the world of cooking-themed mini-game compilations with a trio of Cooking Mama bundles. Mama's Combo Pack Volu...


[Update: My mistake, I read the date wrong in the press release. Double Dragon: Neon is actually coming out in September. Far better timing than the blockbuster month of November, with the exception of Borderlands 2 and Kirby...


Despite what my vampiric complexion and freakishly strong arms would have you believe, I'm no sportswoman. In fact, as this video clearly demonstrates, I can barely dribble a basketball much less dribble one on beat with fou...


Majesco is making an NBA licensed game for Kinect called NBA Baller Beats which uses a real ball. Above is a teaser narrated by rapper Common which promises a gameplay demonstration this June at E3.  I have just one question: Did nobody at Majesco have a mother to tell them not to bounce a ball in the house?


As you may have heard, Double Dragon: Neon by WayForward is being showcased on the PAX show floor. Now, Double Dragon II on the NES may just be my favorite co-op brawler of all time. I have a lot of good memories of my dad an...


When I saw headlines about WayForward working on something called Double Dragon: Neon, my eyes lit up. And then I glanced at the first screenshots. It's not that this reboot looks bad necessarily, but I was expecting some kil...


It's "WTF Wednesday" on Mash Tactics today and King Foom is making waves in Jaws Unleashed. This is an open-world game, developed by the guys who made Ecco the Dolphin, in which you play as Jaws with a weird looking mouth. "W...


As co-host of The Destructoid Show, I consider it my prerogative - nay, my mission - to embarrass myself on a near daily basis. It's not something I typically take issue with, as long as I can say that at the end of the day,...


Here's a little video reminder that Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked is coming to theaters and that there is a game based on said violation of nostalgia. Said game is available in stores now. It's particularly egreg...


If you're a 3DS owner starving for some new games Nano Assault could be the cure. The upcoming three-dimensional shooter follows a microscopic ship on a journey through the human body to eradicate infections and kil...


Today I have been reminded that some people actually go out of their way to move around, even when playing videogames. If that's your cup of tea, then perhaps Zumba Fitness 2 will be right up your street. Apparently Zumba is...


If I had known that fighting viruses was as fun and gorgeous as Nano Assault makes it seem, I'd almost certainly have studied medicine at university instead of drinking. Thankfully, you don't need a medical degree and a massi...


Zumbu Fitness 2 has just had its official box cover revealed and released showing a woman facing the opposite direction from that of the first game. Also, more screenshots! Thankfully, these new Zumbu Fitness 2 scre...


Okay, so maybe Jim didn't care for WayFoward's reboot of the BloodRayne franchise with last week's release of BloodRayne: Betrayal, but I'm here to tell you that it wasn't all bad. The game's soundtrack, composed by Jake Kauf...


Very few people can claim to love BloodRayne as a franchise, and there's a reason for that. The original titles were critically derided, the series of Uwe Boll movies are particularly grotesque, and the comic books are obscur...


Developer Wayforward have already been tasting some measure of critical success with their 2D animated side-scroller BloodRayne: Betrayal, which released on PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade this week. Unfortunately, X...


[Not sure what Mash Tactics is? I've included a clip from the most recent episode to show you just a glimpse of what you've been missing, you daft fool! You can see all of Destructoid's previously-aired live shows in our a...


If you weren't excited enough for next week's release of BloodRayne: Betrayal, WayForward put out a handful of screenshots to make sure you are. And you should be excited. Betrayal is beautiful, it's ultra-violent and looks d...


New screens for Zumba Fitness 2 were released today, and if the sales of the first game are any indication, there is a good chance that a few of you out there are clamoring to get your dance on again. Now, the screenshots the...


It seems that no sooner did we get a release date for BloodRayne: Betrayal than we lost it. WayForward's balls-hot contribution to the BloodRayne franchise has been pushed back from August to October 5 on Xbox Live Arcade and...


BloodRayne: Betrayal releases this month and HNNNNNNNG, I can't wait. I've waited five bloody years for a new BloodRayne game, and not even Satan's penis could stop me from getting hold of it.  Unless it's a really nice penis.  Anyway, here are some new screens of the game, which is looking more pretty every time I see it. Game's out August 31, which is far too far away.


Because every game has to come with a pre-order bonus these days, Gamestop is offering a free plush doll of Mama when you pre-order Cooking Mama 4: Kitchen Magic for the 3DS. Yes, for putting down $5, you can get your very ow...
