Review in Progress: Atelier Shallie Plus: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea

At first glance, the Atelier games may look like cutesy Japanese RPGs and are often dismissed as something creepy for daring to have pretty anime girls, but there is more to them than what is on the box art. For those unfamiliar, the s...   read

Fire Emblem Warriors is also headed to New 3DS

Nintendo didn't really show much of anything for Fire Emblem Warriors during its Switch event last week, but at least we didn't have to wait long to see more. Is this "extended" footage exactly what you imagined of a game from the team beh...   read

While Nioh isn't exactly a PVP game, it will be getting the capability at some point in the future. Although it'll ship as a PVE experience, director Yosuke Hayashi told Gamereactor that they already have a PVP mode in the works, and w...   read

Musou Stars adds Lu Bu, and another Deception character

Was there ever any doubt that Lu Bu would make it into Musou Stars, the all-star collective of Warriors project that Koei Tecmo is set to unleash on Japan on March 2? Probably not. But now he's set to join the fray along with Oda ...   read

Nioh has gone gold, more info coming this week

Nioh, my most anticipated game of 2017 currently ("currently," because who knows, maybe From Software will announce another Souls game or we'll get a Devil May Cry 5 at E3!), has gone gold. That means that it's done and dusted, an...   read

Nioh's director: 'This is meant to be a masocore game, we consciously avoided making it easy'

I remember walking by the Nioh video reel at TGS in 2015 and thinking "why isn't this playable?" It was one of the most attractive games at the show, but at the time it had just been introduced by Team Ninja, and we knew very little about i...   read

Koei Tecmo is doing a Fire Emblem Warriors game

Not much was shown apart from a quick teaser, but Koei Tecmo is going to be making a Fire Emblem themed Warriors game for the Nintendo Switch. Seeing as Hyrule Warriors was incredible, I have no doubt this game is going to be just as awesom...   read

These Nioh screens are magnificent

Man, Disney World used to have a badass mythology museum in the Japan area of Epcot, which showcased a bunch of creatures like Tengu, Kappa, and Kitsune. Now it's a "Kawaii Museum," which is still neat, but the former was just so wonderfull...   read

Nioh kunoichi disregards reality but who cares

I remember forgetting the word for female ninja, "kunoichi," when talking with a Japanese friend once. No matter how much I explained the concept and how much of a basic word it was, she couldn't think of it. When I finally remembered she ...   read

Musou Stars producer wants 'a bit' of the body physics engine from Dead or Alive in the game

Musou Stars is still a thing, and it's glorious. It's basically an all-star mashup of Koei Tecmo's brawlers, and they're really starting to get weird with their cast choices -- I love it! But a few cast members might fundamentally change th...   read

Opoona is a baller, shot-caller in Musou Stars

One of my favorite things about the Nintendo Wii was all the weird games it got. Stuff like Elebits, WarioWare: Smooth Moves, The Dog Island, and Opoona. Opoona was especially odd in that its big gimmick was you could play the ent...   read

Toukiden 2 settles on a spring 2017 release in the West

Oni hunter Toukiden 2 will come to North America and Europe in spring 2017. This is good! Curiously, though, Koei Tecmo isn't specifying which platforms it's targeting for the Western release. This is less good! Realistically, PlayStation 4...   read

Cast aside your anime prejudice, Blue Reflection looks crazy fun

Have you ever worried about games not being localized or not featuring enough women? Gust has you covered; nearly every Gust title has been localized in the West and they all feature a mostly female cast. The Atelier series is Gust's ...   read

We anime now! Atelier Sophie and Nights of Azure coming to Steam

Forty percent of all Steam games were released in 2016. That's over 4,000 more games to complete if you have the delusional goal of playing every game ever like little ole OCD Cory. Sure a lot of those games are just garbage, but it sure is...   read

Berserk and the Band of the Hawk is getting an 'Endless Eclipse' mode

Just in case the idea of adding in the "Eclipse" (a major spoiler event) for Koei Tecmo's Berserk game was a ballsy enough move, they've doubled down and announced that a new "Endless Eclipse Mode" is coming to the game. It'll be added...   read

Has Nioh redeemed Team Ninja for you?

Back when Itagaki was at the helm, Team Ninja was riding high. Say what you will about Dead or Alive but it made an impact on the 3D fighter market in the '90s, and Ninja Gaiden's pristine reboot? Say no more. But after he left, they starte...   read

New Dynasty Warriors game is less bashing, more clicking
