Final Fantasy VII's PS4 Remake May Not Be Exactly How You Remember It

Growing pains

Many of you probably have the plot of Final Fantasy VII memorised, but Square Enix has hinted that the release's PlayStation 4 remake – which was announced earlier this week to rapturous response – could deviate from the original story. "We've announced an HD port version on the PS4, and then we have the remake coming to PS4,"...

Summer Lesson Is Morpheus' Most Colourful Game Yet

The holiday of your dreams

Summer Lesson, the Project Morpheus-powered studying simulation from Bandai Namco's industrious Tekken team, appears to have ditched the creepy schoolgirl aspect of its original reveal – opting instead for a sunny experience in which you'll spend time in an idyllic holiday home with the girl of your dreams. Still a bit...

E3 2015: Arcade Classic Battlezone Targets Morpheus Reboot

Arcade Classic Battlezone Targets Morpheus Reboot

Tank! Tank! Tank!

This author's a little too young to remember Battlezone, but for many it provided a formative arcade experience. For those that don't know, the cabinet came with a kind of periscope, which was used as a window into the polygonal action. Your objective in the Atari game was to bust wireframe tanks – and now Rebellion is bringing...

And that was the end of that

Sword Art Online Titles Slash into E3 with Two New Trailers

Razor sharp

Enhanced port Sword Art Online Re: Hollow Fragment, and all-new PlayStation 4 and Vita title Sword Art Online: Lost Song have both sliced their way into E3 2015 with two fresh trailers. The former's clip showcases quite a lot of gameplay, and it's looking pretty nifty running on the PlayStation 4, while the latter's video goes for a...

E3 2015: Why Has The Last Guardian Taken So Long?

Why Has The Last Guardian Taken So Long?

"Sometimes it takes a really long time to realise a vision"

The Last Guardian was undoubtedly one of the highlights of Sony's big E3 2015 media briefing last night. It's taken Fumito Ueda and his team seven long years to get the former PlayStation 3 exclusive up to a standard where it's presentable outside of trailer form, but finally, we got a...

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4's E3 PS4 Gameplay Trailer Will Blow You Away

Quite literally

No one does anime-style action quite like CyberConnect2, as evidenced by Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4's brand new E3 2015 trailer. One astounding attack after the next is dropped throughout this glorious gameplay footage, and, truth be told, even we felt a little out of breath by the time it was over. The PlayStation 4...

Rumour: Beyond Good & Evil 2 Is Dead and Buried

Beyond Good & Evil 2 Is Dead and Buried

Yves forbade Jade

Sony's big E3 2015 press conference may have felt a little like a sΓ©ance for formerly dead projects, but there's one title that it failed to resurrect: Beyond Good & Evil 2. The astute among you may have noticed that the release was absent from Ubisoft's media briefing, and that's because it's apparently dead as a dodo –...

Some titles 60 per cent off

In the mood for some actual games following this week's E3 2015 goodness? Of course you darn well are.

E3 2015: Oh No, the PS4 Port of Final Fantasy VII Has Been Delayed Until Late 2015

Oh No, the PS4 Port of Final Fantasy VII Has Been Delayed Until Late 2015

Say it ain't so

We're not sure about you, but we're finding it pretty difficult to maintain hype for the PlayStation 4 port of Final Fantasy VII. It's probably because, y'know, an actual remake of the PSone classic was announced at Sony's E3 2015 press conference, which we guess renders the mentioned port a bit obsolete. Yes, you read that...

Godzilla on PS4 Rampages Through E3 With a Brand New Gameplay Trailer

King of the monsters

What kind joke would E3 be without PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 smash-'em-up Godzilla storming the Los Angeles event? In the game's newest, suitably bombastic trailer, we see the overgrown lizard and all of his monster pals kick the snot out of each other, wrecking cities as they go. It's arguably the title's best clip...

Persona 5 Gets an English Trailer, and It's Still Slated For a 2015 Western Release

Now it's personal

Atlus has begun its Western push of Persona 5 courtesy of the role-playing game's first English trailer, published alongside the title's official English website. Disappointingly, the clip contains the same footage that we've seen before, but it's still well worth watching again for its glorious sense of style. Perhaps the big...

What Did Square Enix Announce During Its E3 2015 Press Conference?

Stop press

Another newbie at this year's E3 when it comes to publisher press conferences, Square Enix grabbed the bull by the horns and took the expo to task. The Japanese company showcased the likes of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Kingdom Hearts III, and Just Cause 3, but it was Nier that managed to get the most attention. If you missed any of the...

Was Square Enix's E3 2015 Press Conference a Success?

Keyblade kings

Square Enix's E3 2015 press conference was a slightly more humble affair compared to the bombast of yesterday's pressers, but the publisher still managed to pack it with a diverse selection of games. The new Nier title announced for the PlayStation 4 was probably the biggest highlight, but the sumptuous new Kingdom Hearts III...

E3 2015: Augment Yourself with Deus Ex: Mankind Divided's First Gameplay Footage

Augment Yourself with Deus Ex: Mankind Divided's First Gameplay Footage

Ex marks the spot

As expected, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided took up a decent chunk of Square Enix's E3 2015 press conference. The cyberpunk sequel got a shiny new trailer at the event, complete with the grizzly voice of main character Adam Jensen. Mostly made up of gameplay, the footage looks pretty great, and it seems as though Jensen's going to be...
