Nippon Ichi's new horror tease may be too subtle

Rather than explicitly announce and detail the new project, companies in both video games and film sometimes like to take an indirect approach with horror. Not going as far as Cloverfield, Nippon Ichi Software announced a new horror game w...

Review: A Rose in the Twilight

Did you know in the original version of The Little Mermaid, when the central character gets her legs, every step she takes feels as though she is walking on knives? And instead of marrying the prince at the end, she dies and turns into seaf...

Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony comes west in September

At the NIS America event in San Francisco, Danganronpa director Kazutaka Kodaka joked that he was jealous of how well Ace Attorney and Persona sell, but I bet there's some truth behind that. His latest Saw meets Ace...

Danganronpa Another Episode drops in June in the west

It's still weird to me that something called Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls is now part of the zeitgeist, popular enough for Spike Chunsoft and NIS to localize and promote like it was almost a AAA game, but here we are in ...

Review: Yomawari: Night Alone

There is only one proper way to play a horror video game, just as there is only one proper way to watch a horror movie: with the lights off. In order for horror to work, you have to invest yourself in it. You have allow yourself to be scare...

NIS America is running a big sale on PlayStation Network

I'll take any excuse to say "Natty Doc," and this is a pretty darn good one. NISA has a worthwhile sale up on the PlayStation Store that spans the PSP up to the PS4, with games like Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness, Disgaea 5, Demon Graze, ...
