Ninja Gaiden composer announces he's working on a new project 'related' to Gaiden

[Update: In a follow-up remark, Yamagishi said "I apologize for any confusion caused by this tweet. This new project does not relate to a new video game!"] I think Ninja Gaiden II (the new one) gets more guff than it needs to. Sure, it...   read

Bent, not broken: Nioh's flexible rigidity

It's been a long and winding road for Nioh. Koei unveiled the project a decade and a half ago -- four years prior to the company's 2008 merger with Tecmo, whose own Team Ninja (Dead or Alive, Ninja Gaiden) is now handling development of the...   read

Yep, Berserk Warriors is confirmed for the west

So, Berserk Musou guys. It just shot up on my most anticipated games of 2016 list in an instant. I was all set to import it on PS4 too, but Koei Tecmo just re-confirmed that it is in fact coming west in the form of a trailer on their A...   read

Fresh Berserk Musou screens show some action

After officially revealing Berserk Musou last week with a fairly bizarre trailer (that is totally comfortable and safe to view in a public space), Koei Temco has finally shared what I'm really interested in from a Berserk game – scene...   read

The fantastic Souls-like Nioh is getting a second demo in August

I really enjoyed my time with Nioh, which made me feel like I did when I first played Demon's Souls -- lost and confused in the best possible way. But our time with it was fleeting, as the demo was only available for a limited tim...   read

Dynasty Warriors Berserk was just fully confirmed

Well, the site teasing this past week seemingly gave it away!  Koei Tecmo has confirmed today at E3 that the next Warriors game is indeed Berserk Mosuo. Here is a short, no-gameplay clip that's highly not safe for work. ...   read

There's a chance the new Dynasty Warriors game could be Berserk and it's blowing my mind

Omega Force's "top secret" project that's going to be revealed on June 13 is heating up, thanks to some alterations on their teaser site. Siliconera has picked up on the blood effects that are now dripping on the logo, as well as the stark ...   read

Is that 'top secret' Omega Force game a Lu Bu spinoff?

When Omega Force first announced that it would have a "top secret" title to show at E3, I used an image of Lu Bu and his piercing eyes to get the point across. Now I may have inadvertently cracked the code, as a new teaser site for the proj...   read

Breaking wind with Medli in Hyrule Warriors

If you haven't popped in your copy of Hyrule Warriors lately, you may want to do so, as The Wind Waker's Medli is now available. Itching to get back into the game with further new DLC characters on the horizon, I decided to reacquaint ...   read

Koei Tecmo will announce a 'Top Secret' Omega Force title at E3 this year

Koei Tecmo sent me a relatively wordy announcement today noting their presence at E3, which will feature Attack on Titan and Nioh. But hidden under the bravado was the promise of a "top secret" reveal at this year's show, which is a pr...   read

Team Ninja highlights Nioh demo feedback, planned changes

With my Souls mindset, I had a rough time adjusting to Nioh's quirks at first, but I got wrapped up in the "dark samurai" action-RPG once I figured out the different character stances and how to keep my stamina usage in check. The recent al...   read

Toukiden 2 has been delayed in Japan

Toukiden 2 was nearly ready to launch in Japan on June 30, but it looks like there's a little more work to be done. Koei Tecmo has delayed the game further into a new July 28 date, noting "quality" concerns. Given the west's insatiable need...   read

Koei Tecmo's Attack on Titan has multiple pre-order bonuses

Nioh amazingly lets you choose between visual fidelity and a consistent frame rate

As someone who speaks on this subject of framerates a lot, I'll break it down again for people who don't care. For most games, 30fps, or even sub 30fps, may not even matter. For slow adventure titles, puzzle games, or anything else that doe...   read
