Hyrule Warriors' triforce of corporate garbage is complete. GameStop got the fan-favorite Ocarina garb, while pre-ordering from Amazon nets you Twilight Princess threads for Link and Zelda. Best Buy has Skyward Swor...
Hyrule Warriors of course got some screen time during Nintendo's E3 digital event today, where the developers talked a bit more about what separates this game from their respective franchises. Midna and Zelda were both annou...
Trapt is coming to PlayStation Network next week, according to the latest episode of the PlayStation Blogcast. A spiritual successor to Tecmo's Deception series, the strategy action title initially released on PlayS...


Team NINJA's Yosuke Hayashi announced that there will be some updates coming to Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate soon. The arcade version will be receiving an update in late January, and it will include new costumes for the fighters....
How does Tecmo Koei celebrate Halloween? Or really, any day of the week? With skimpy outfits! Skimpy outfits that they hope you'll pay $24.99 for. Yes, you read that right. 28 costumes for $25. The "special" pack released to...
"If at first you don't succeed..." is an interesting business model, especially considering that Dead or Alive 5 wasn't really a "failure," per se. However, try, try again Team Ninja did, and we are now treated to a third version of this particular entry in the franchise. When it all boils down to it, does Ultimate really make that big of a difference?
Fatal Frame III: The Tormented is coming to PlayStation Network this week. The spine-chilling third chapter in Tecmo's survival horror series is a mix of old and new, featuring the series' trademark Camera Obscura, some famil...
Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends will launch alongside the PlayStation 4 in Japan on February 22, 2014. The title is also coming to PlayStation 3 and PS Vita in Japan on November 8, 2013.
Fatal Frame 2: Crimson Butterfly is going in for repairs this week. The digital version of the survival horror classic has been plagued with a myriad of technical issues since its release on PlayStation Network earlier t...
Though it is a perfectly functional and fun fighting game, Dead or Alive 5 didn't exactly set the fighting game scene ablaze. It sold well enough at least, but Team Ninja plans to breathe new life into the game by making Dead...
Fatal Frame 2: Crimson Butterfly is creeping its way onto PlayStation Network this week. Its arrival is hot on the heels of the original Fatal Frame, which only landed on Sony's online service a few short weeks ago....
Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky is the latest entry in Gust's long-running role-playing franchise and is set to arrive exclusively for PlayStation 3 on June 27 in Japan. In the meantime Tecmo Koei h...
Prepare to wet your pants! Fatal Frame is coming to PlayStation Network. Announced during this week's PlayStation Blogcast, the first entry in Tecmo's unique survival horror series is set to arrive on Sony's online store this...
No to say that's a bad thing! In fact, seeing Tecmo Koei's line-up for Tokyo Game Show 2012 reminded me that I never did get around to playing Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage, which I'm led to believe is a mistake. There's...
Team Ninja's hype train has just left the station, as they are hard at work convincing us that Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge for the Wii U will actually be good this time."We left out some of the things the series was well-kno...
At E3 last week, there were a good amount of new fighting games. Conrad and I made our rounds to all the booths that had fighting games to show off, and Steven Hansen eventually joined us as well. Here we made our way to the...
Among the list of upcoming titles for the new Wii U console shown at today's Nintendo E3 press conference was Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge. And, just below the title, the video lists Nintendo as the publisher. I don't really ...
Happy Friday, everyone! Not only is today the sixth anniversary of this wacky and wonderful website we've all come to know and love, it's also the birthday of our great overlord Niero, to whom we paid tribute on today's live...
It would appear that Dead or Alive 5 is coming along nicely. I mean, Team Ninja did get the most important feature of any DoA game in there already. You know, the jiggle physics. Ayane and Hitomi are here to show off the ful...
This post is already way too much about me and way too little about the story, so how about we take that narcissism as far as we can and see what happens? I'm sad. I can't get keyboard-controlled Flash games to wor...
Grand news for everyone who recently picked up a 3DS: Tecmo Koei is going to cycle through the daily SpotPass outfits for Dead or Alive Dimensions again -- all 34 of them. Each morning at 10:00am, there will be a new costume ...
The 'latest' Playstation: The Official Magazine has project lead Yosuke Hayashi spilling some details on Ninja Gaiden III -- the first new Ninja Gaiden sans Itagaki. Supposedly, the focus will be on Ryu Hayabusa as a "dark Ja...
Wow, what a move. First you're at the house of boobs, ninjas and warriors, and then you move to a place where crops and farmer hats are the most popular things.  I'm sure former Tecmo Koei boss Kenji Matsubara got over t...
It's been a while since I've seen an honest to goodness fighting game rivalry. There was the faux trash talk between the Tekken 6 and Street Fighter IV devs from late last year, but that was all just to promote Street Fighter...
Two fighting games coming to a Nintendo handheld? This is madness! Tecmo’s fighter Dead or Alive: Dimensions will join Capcom’s Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition on the Nintendo 3DS this year. The game marks Team...
And that, my dear readers, is the sound of 3DS purchasers -- more than just those already into Team Ninja's brand of fighting games -- collectively starting to care about Dead or Alive Dimensions. Such a thing shouldn't be a...
I wish I could tell you what's going on in this Dead or Alive Dimensions trailer. The video seems to detail the game's roster, as well as some of its 3DS specific features, but my limited Japanese keeps me from telling you m...
Tecmo Koei has announce its Tokyo Game Show line-up and the words "ninja," "gaiden," "dead," "or," and "alive" are sadly absent. Here's what they'll be showing on the floor: TRINITY: Souls of Zill O'll (PS3) Warriors: Legend...
Everyone's favorite funbag-focused fighting series is coming to 3DS soon. Dead or Alive 3D will be the first major release (discounting PSP spin-off Dead or Alive Paradise) since series creator Tomonobu Itagaki left developer...
So, GameSpot has got itself a swanky interactive map of E3's show floor. On this map, you can click on the various companies that'll be in attendance, and a list of their "featured games" will pop up. See where this is going ...
The Japanese unified power of Tecmo and Koei is only bringing four games to E3 this year. No portable stuff. No Wii stuff. Just serious games. I'm all for the First of the North Star game. Ken's Revenge, coming to the Xbox 36...
If you've seen Quantum Theory you know it looks a lot like Gears of War. It's a third-person shooter with a cover system, big burly men and heavy armor. But if you've played Quantum Theory then you know that they're at least ...
Hey, get this: Ninja Gaiden publisher Tecmo Koei says that Ninja Gaiden 3 is going to be a good game. While not officially announced, Tecmo Koei senior managing director Yoshiki Sugiyama is already talking up the sequel. "Nin...
Aww! How sweet. It seems that they're all over the sour split drama when bad ass game maker Tomonobu Itagaki left Tecmo awhile back, taking much of Team Ninja with him. There was a lawsuit, unpaid wages and bonuses and threat...
If you have fond memories of playing Tecmo Super Bowl back in the early '90s, then this might be relevant to your interests. Tecmo is updating the game and putting it out on Xbox Live Arcade and the PlayStation Network,...
Once a PS3 exclusive and now also coming to the Xbox 360, Tecmo's Quantum Theory is getting a date change. The Gears of War-ish third-person shooter gets another delay from its previously set March 2010 date, now to Summer 20...
Tecmo, I love you. You're marketing directly to the core audience that will be purchasing this game and you have no shame in doing so. For that, I salute you. This week's babe is Kokoro. Her measurements are B35" W22" H34" a...
Seriously. The subject line of the latest Dead or Alive Paradise PR is "18 Days until Paradise. Babe of the Week #5 Inside. She's over 18." Yeah. So this week's babe is Christie. Yet even though it's her week, a peepshow video of Ayane is the latest video on Tecmo's YouTube channel. Either way, I guess Tecmo believes you'll choke your chicken no matter who the babe is. Jesus.
Either this viral is implying that Dead or Alive Paradise is better than masturbating, or Tecmo wants everyone to go beat the sh*t out of some monkeys. Personally, I'd do both at the same time, but I digress. Leifang is this...
