Team Ninja's Nioh returns with a beta demo on August 23

This Japanese Pokemon trailer is almost like found footage horror

Nintendo just put out a new clip on their Japan-side for Pokemon Sun & Moon, and I have expected it to take a horror-like turn at some point (especially with the spooky new creature). Unsettling presentation aside it's actually a sweet ...   read
