Maid cafes CONFIRMED for Persona 5

One of my favorite things about playing RPGs set in Japan (before I was able to visit for myself last year for the first time!) is wandering the streets and learning new customs. The Yakuza series (minus the egregious cuts for 3) was r...   read

Fire Emblem was originally going to crossover with Pokemon before Conquest ruined it

We heard so little about Tokyo Mirage Sessons #FE over the course of its development that some of us feared it was canceled, but it had undergone a number of changes before it actually came out the way it did (which was good, by the way!). ...   read

Opinion: Persona 5's delicate balancing act

In just over a month, Persona 5 will grace those lucky future folk over in Japan. School will be skipped, Famitsu will be 100/100'ing, and socials will be linked. Unfortunately, as my understanding of the Japanese language doesn't reach muc...   read

Persona 5 battle-wear is my fetish

I loved Persona 4's vibrant pop aesthetic just fine. Entering the TV world to the tune of catchy department store jingles while wearing school clothes (or, later, the Dojima costume!!!). And I like that Persona 5 is doing something differen...   read

If the demo is any indication, The King of Fighters XIV is destined for great things

I'm glad King of Fighters (and by proxy, SNK) is still in the fighting game discussion. It's had a long, long hiatus since XIII was released back in 2010 (which was a massive improvement on XII), and because a new collective of owners has r...   read

Deep Silver enters publishing agreement with Atlus in Europe

Well this is weird news to wake up to! Citing differences of opinion, NIS recently removed themselves from their publishing agreement with Atlus/Sega in Europe. This put the fans in that region in a bad spot, as Atlus is notoriously absent ...   read
