All publishers have gone to the rapture
Gravity Rush 2 – known as Gravity Daze 2 overseas, of course – will be dated in Japan during a presentation scheduled for 19th July. The event will be hosted at Ebisu Act Square, and will begin at 14:30PM JST – about 06:30AM BST if you're in the UK. It'll be attended by series creator Keiichiro Toyama, composer Kohei Tanaka, and SIEJ...
Is that all you've got?
It's not quite E3 2016 yet, but publishers have got to get you in the mood for the big show. This Titanfall 2 trailer, then, is designed to preface EA's press conference reveal on Sunday – and, inevitably, it shows next to nothing. Still, we figured that we better share it with you just in case. You'll be able to watch the...
Sora saw it coming
Square Enix is going insane at the moment, dropping trailers, release dates, and announcements like it's in a rush. And there'll be no let up tomorrow, as it's teased a new Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8: Final Chapter Prologue trailer. The promo will go live tomorrow at 21:00PM Japan time, and promises to include new material. For...
Want to see what your PS4 can do?
In true Gran Turismo fashion, Polyphony Digital's all-new PlayStation 4 exclusive will be speeding out of the showroom ahead of E3 2016, as Sony prepares a live London event for the iconic simulation series. The first new-gen entry in the storied racing franchise was announced at Paris Games Week last year, but...
One last time
Naughty Dog's going to give you one last look at Uncharted 4: A Thief's End before launch, as it readies one final trailer before release. Sony teased the video on its Twitter page, revealing that it will go live tomorrow from 07:00AM PDT / 16:00PM CEST. Hopefully it doesn't include too many spoilers as we already feel like we've...
All publishers have gone to the rapture
Everybody's Gone to the Rapture maker The Chinese Room is getting ready to reveal its next game. The UK-based studio said on Twitter that the announcement will come "in the next couple of weeks". However, you probably shouldn't anticipate the finished article, as it added that it plans to be "pretty open...
World continues to turn
Get the 'Announcements of Announcements' horn ready everybody, because Kinda Funny Games' Greg Miller just dropped one on his Twitter account. Miller says in the tweet: "I'm a Final Fantasy noob. Tim Gettys loves it. The devs say XV will appeal to us both. We'll see in March. " He attached an image giving details of an...
Heart forth, Alicia Melchiott
SEGA's caught the announcement of an announcement bug, as it's been busy teasing away for a few days now. Its previous hint turned out to be a Nintendo 3DS compilation cartridge, but its latest hint may rustle the jimmies of PlayStation 4 fans. Over on its official Twitter account, the publisher has uploaded a jigsaw...
Check back on Monday
Y'know what this industry's been lacking lately? Obnoxious countdown clocks! These things were all the rage a few years ago, as publishers pimped their impeding announcements with enigmatic timers. And it looks like Bandai Namco's trying to resurrect the age old marketing method, as it's launched a new website counting down to...
The annoyingly named II.8 also in on the fun
It's time to go quackers: Santa will be sucking in his stomach and slipping down your chimney in order to deliver a new Kingdom Hearts III trailer today. Presumably this will be an extended version of the grainy Buzz Lightyear teaser that hit the online airwaves earlier in the week. We're Sora excited...
Once upon a time, Ultimate Fighting Championship games were a big deal. We distinctly remember one entry from THQ tearing up the charts – but then the publisher went on to milk the series, and interest waned. Since then, EA Sports has become the custodian of the license, but while its previous UFC game certainly had some positives, it...
The last time that EA attempted to hype up a Star Wars: Battlefront announcement, it turned out to be Team Deathmatch, so we're not getting our hopes up for this new reveal just yet. However, an image on the franchise's official Facebook page showing an X-Wing does hold a little more promise we suppose. It's accompanied by the words:
Nah, it's probably Dynasty Warriors 9
Let the speculation begin: Koei Tecmo is teasing a reveal for a game that "is not Warriors" according to a newly opened website. Whatever the unannounced title is, though, it's being developed by Omega Force - the Japanese studio that supposedly never sleeps. The reveal's happening in seven day's time, on the...
Leave the gun, take this artwork
After an eternity being locked up in the back of some hoodlum's trunk, Mafia III will finally don its fedora in public next week. The official Facebook page for the franchise has updated its cover image with a single piece of artwork confirming a 5th August reveal. The shot shows four gangsters surrounding a tied...
Square Enix has revealed that it's hosting a presentation on the 28th July regarding the Dragon Quest series - that's next Tuesday, by the way. The news comes via Jump Magazine, which goes on to mention Dragon Quest Heroes II, and unveils the action role-playing game's subtitle: Twin Kings and the Prophecy's End. Sounds fancy. However,...
It's bound to be gorgeous
It looks as though talented Japanese outfit Vanillaware is gearing up to announce a new project in the next few days, if this teaser website is anything to go by. Whatever the game is, it'll be revealed live in Boston on the 20th July. There's already some speculation that it may be a high definition re-release of the...
Hmmm, what do you make of this, then? 2K has just revealed what seems to be a brand new property in the form of a teaser website. The publisher had recently confirmed that it's working on a new AAA title, so this could well be our first glimpse. Supposedly named Advent, it looks as though it'll be some sort of sci-fi escapade, and we're...
Green means go
After over a year in Ghost Games' garage, Need for Speed will be hitting the highway this week. Over on the franchise's official Facebook page, EA has teased that the latest title in the legendary racing series will be revealed on 21st May. The publisher's encouraging you to subscribe to the property's YouTube channel in order to...
Predictions on a post card, please
Ubisoft's no stranger to hidden blades, but it appears that the French firm has a different kind of weapon stuffed up its sleeve. Hot on the heels of Assassin's Creed Syndicate's announcement earlier this evening, the publisher has revealed that it has another "triple-A title that has not yet been announced" in...
The hood is off
Don't you just love announcements of announcements? Well we've got a corker for you today, as Ubisoft has announced that the next Assassin's Creed title will be revealed on the 12th May at 18:00PM CET. If our useless math skills are correct, that's 17:00PM UK time. We already know quite a bit about the title, of course, as the...
Please be excited
Do you know what we love more than playing games? Talking about ones that haven't been announced yet, but are totally going to blow us away – Scout's honour. To be fair to Yosuke Matsuda, who's the president of Square Enix, he was asked by Japanese publication Nikkei Trendy about the company's upcoming fiscal year, where he...
Get your hopes up
In approximately 23 hours, at the time of writing, there's going to be some sort of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain announcement. The news comes courtesy of the game's official Japanese website, which features a stylish countdown. So, what's it going to be? Well, the obvious bet is that the title's finally getting a...
"It involves masks, drugs, and memory loss"
Contrast lacked polish in crucial areas, but the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 puzzle platformer certainly had a sense of style that we could get behind. We're intrigued to see what indie outfit Compulsion Games gets up to next, then, and judging by a blog post on its website, it's almost ready to talk...
Z marks the spot
Cryptic teases are a mainstay in this industry, and they almost always end in disappointment – but that doesn't stop us from getting sucked into the hype cycle every single time. Square Enix is the latest publisher to join the party, launching a mysterious website pointing to the announcement of an upcoming PlayStation 4...
Keighley warns against megatons, though
We hope that you’re buckled in and ready for an amazing week here at Push Square, because things are kicking off ahead of the Christmas holidays. Not only is the PSone set to celebrate its 20th anniversary on Wednesday, but PlayStation Experience is also scheduled to occur over the weekend. And then, of...
Such a tease
With E3 just a week away, spirits are high in the Push Square office, with bets being placed on what surprises the biggest video game event of the year will spring on us. Streaming site Twitch has changed the odds, however, as it's revealed its show floor schedule, which just so happens to include a bunch of unannounced titles. Sony,...
It’s customary to cut down on cakes and custard creams in January, but it sounds like Sony’s endured an almighty detox over the past three or so weeks. The platform holder has invited select members of the UK press to a briefing next Thursday, which hints at some form of hardware reveal. We’re assuming that our invite’s been...
Are you afraid of the dark?
The excitement never ends, does it? Sony has casually taken to Twitter today to promote a viral marketing campaign for Amnesia: The Dark Descent developer Frictional Games’ next release. A mysterious message – noting that “something strange is afoot” – redirects to SOMAsystems.org, which just so happens to...
Read this article in your best Stephen Fry voice
Hold onto your burlap dolls everyone – a big LittleBigPlanet reveal is mere moments away. Writing on the franchise’s Twitter page, the community team behind the ‘Play, Create, Share’ favourite teased the imminent news. “Stay tuned to the PlayStation Blog because we have an exciting...
Is your body ready?
Ever since that delightful tease at the end of last month’s Grand Theft Auto V trailer, we’ve been dying to learn more about the game’s multiplayer mode, Grand Theft Auto Online. Fortunately, we’ll be finding out a whole lot on 15th August, when Rockstar Games is set to deploy a
Inject it into our eyeballs
That Grand Theft Auto V gameplay footage that Rockstar Games recently teased isn’t far away – in fact, it’s probably being uploaded to a secure server as we type. The publisher – that simply can’t stand to do things the conventional way – has confirmed that we’ll get our first proper look at the open world...
Prepare yourself for tomorrow
Eidos Montreal has all but confirmed that we’ll get our first glimpse at Deus Ex: The Fall tomorrow. Following the discovery of a handful of a domain names earlier in the year, the developer has deployed a desperately brief teaser trailer, hinting at a 5th June announcement. The seven second video includes the...
Plenty to play
PlayStation Vita evangelist and indie game aficionado Shahid Kamal Ahmad has taken to Twitter once again to tease the handheld’s impending line-up. Writing on the social networking site, the senior business development manager insinuated that there are “dozens” more titles on the way for the fledgling handheld. The exact nature...
Single screenshot accelerates into sight
The floodgates have well and truly opened. Following last night’s Xbox One reveal, publishers are scrambling to announce their games – not just for Microsoft’s machine, but for Sony’s too. The new Need for Speed is the latest title to sort of join the party. The above screenshot popped up on the...
We've got no idea what it is, though
Japan Studio is on fire. After years of deflecting questions pertaining to The Last Guardian and twiddling its thumbs, the Eastern outfit has actually decided to start making some games again. It’s already released the brilliant Soul Sacrifice this year, and still has both Puppeteer and Knack in the pipeline...
And it's not an indie game
Shahid Kamal Ahmad clearly saw the poll results to our PlayStation Vita reaction article overnight. The senior business development manager at Sony Computer Entertainment Europe – who spends more time on Twitter than he does asleep – is responsible for a number of the indie games coming to the system, but he’s also...
Ghost in the machine
There’s no question that Call of Duty: Ghosts is a real thing now. Activision has updated the series’ official website, including a mysterious teaser image which resembles a phantom-like face. Cleverly, the picture is made up of hundreds of smaller icons, submitted by users to the page. You can link up your Facebook or...
Watching your every move
Ubisoft could be about to broadcast a brand new batch of Watch Dogs b-roll, if a teaser uploaded to the title’s Twitter page is to be believed. In the message, the company hinted: “Aiden Pearce was seen on Lake St. ctOS is pulling video, will be updated tomorrow.” We suspect that the trailer will be structured...
Zwei to go
Hours after putting The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim out to pasture, Bethesda has launched a teaser for a new title. The publisher uploaded a mysterious video onto its Twitter account this afternoon, showing little more than barbed wire, a few books, and a vinyl record. Contrary to public opinion, though,
Publisher planning a barrage of information
EA Games will blow Battlefield 4’s doors wide open on 26th March in San Francisco. The publisher has sent out a slew of official invites to North American outlets, confirming the impending reveal of the first-person shooter. A similar ‘Save the Date’ invite teased the title’s announcement last...
Acquire title to be revealed next week
Criminally underrated PlayStation Network arcade puzzler The Last Guy could be plotting a path onto the PlayStation Vita, if a new teaser website set up by Japanese developer Acquire is to be believed. The page – which includes Google Map-esque backgrounds similar to those employed by the aforementioned PSN...
You definitely asked for it
We thought Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima was the master of the countdown clock, but he may just need to renounce his crown. It turns out that there’s a new contender to the teaser throne, and it belongs to Coconut Dodge developer FuturLab. Not content with dropping hints in press releases, launching s
Teaser websites are typically reserved for the hubbub of E3, but Brink developer Splash Damage clearly couldn’t contain its excitement until summer. The company has uploaded a specially prepared countdown page pointing to 11:29AM on the 29th November. It’s unclear what the studio’s working on, but we’re eager to read your...
Where’s ex-editor James Newton when you need him? SEGA's released a brand new teaser trailer that’s had everyone in the Push Square office stumped. The cryptic short – entitled 2 x 5 – features lots of screaming and the sound of Sonic losing rings. If you listen carefully, you’ll also spot the “Get Ready” voice sample...
What could it be?
Give credit to Team Ninja for at least attempting to inject some life into the Tokyo Game Show’s non-existent build up. The Ninja Gaiden developer has confirmed that it will be revealing its latest project at the Japanese convention later this week. Team Ninja is currently gearing up for the release of Dead or Alive 5, which is...
Place your bets now
We worried that Sony’s software splurge at GamesCom would keep its Tokyo Game Show surprises to a bare minimum, but it turns out we were sorely mistaken. According to the latest issue of Dengeki PlayStation Magazine, the platform holder is planning to reveal a slew of new titles during the Japan-centric show. Unfortunately,...
She was just a wish
Square Enix is set to reveal a new direction for the Lightning saga on 1st September, the publisher has announced. The so-called Lightning saga consists of two games already: Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy XIII-2. Together the titles have sold over 9.6 million units. It’s not entirely clear what the Japanese publisher is...
T'Soni a few hours to wait
Announcements of announcements – how do you like them? Publisher EA Games doesn’t care, as it’s promised to show something Mass Effect 3 related during its Summer Showcase event later today. What is it? We don’t know. The likeliest candidate is a new piece of single-player DLC, but we suppose anything’s...
SEGA is teasing something to do with classic on-rails flying title NiGHTS into Dreams. The publisher uploaded an image of an industrial-like setting on its Facebook page earlier today, which fans have noted looks an awful lot like Stick Canyon from the original SEGA Saturn game. There’s some discussion that this could be related to...
We’re on the cusp of E3 now; the madness is less than a week away from transpiring. As such, publishers are opting to fill the time with cryptic teases of major announcements they’re not quite ready to share yet. First out of the blocks is Square Enix with this playful Hitman: Absolution image. You know it’s a tease because, well,...
May the force be with you
Spike TV is set to officially announce the next LucasArts developed Star Wars game. The reveal will be teased during a pre-E3 episode of GTTV on 31st May, and will be followed by a full gameplay demo during E3 All Access Live on 4th June. Details are scarce right now, but we've got our fingers crossed for a new Star Wars:...
The official website for SEGA’s uber-niche (but absolutely brilliant) Yakuza franchise has been overhauled, teasing the impending reveal of Yakuza 5. Excuse us while we go and perform some cartwheels around the office to release our overflowing excitement. Phew, that’s better. The website shows construction workers and a poised...
Promo trailer practically confirms it
We’ll finally get our first look at gameplay footage from Sony’s heavily rumoured mascot mash-up PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale this Thursday. Host Geoff Keighley prompted speculation when he teased a massive “PS3 exclusive” would debut on this week’s episode of GTTV – but the announcement has...
It’s going to be a “good week for PlayStation fans” according to GameTrailers hype-man Geoff Keighley. The industry legend teased over the weekend that a “huge new PS3 exclusive” will be revealed on GTTV this Thursday, with the first in-game footage on display. While it’s unclear what the title will be,...
It’s time to plot your pursuit of prestige all over again, as Activision readies the announcement of another Call of Duty title. As previously speculated, all will be revealed on 1st May. A countdown on CallofDuty.com notes that the title will be showcased during the basketball playoffs on US cable channel TNT. Seems like an appropriate...
Once upon a monster
For a game we know next to nothing about, Soul Sacrifice is beginning to seem like a big deal. The PlayStation Vita exclusive – revealed in Famitsu magazine earlier in the week – has now been granted a fairly high-budget teaser website, showing off some concept art from the game. Set to a thumping drum-beat and images of...
T’is the season for PS3 announcements it seems. Last week Sony held a hush-hush showcase for North American press in New York, and it appears all of the talking-points from that event are gradually going to trickle online in the coming weeks. You should already expect a God of War related announcement in just a few days, but the fun and...
Coming next week
SEGA has a big surprise up its sleeve for Shining fans next week. The official Shining Blade Twitter — via Andriasang — tweeted that the "biggest thing in series history" will happen next week. Previously the account has hinted that information about the next game will be included in the packaging for Shining Blade,...
Remember that magazine teaser we posted yesterday? Yeah, it’s hinting at EA’s next Medal of Honor game. How do we know? Because Kotaku’s just received an invite to an exclusive Medal of Honor press event scheduled to take place in the US on 6th March. Incidentally, that’s the same day that the aforementioned magazine's latest issue...
Lock and load
British PlayStation magazine, PSM3, is teasing the imminent announcement of a mysterious shooter sequel in its latest issue. The single page preview features an image of two bullets facing down and includes the text, “An exclusive look at one of 2012’s hottest shooters”. What could the game be? Our guess is the follow-up to...
Atlus wants to play a game of 20Q with you
The publisher's teasing the announcement of its next game. We already know that it's the fourth game in a series, starts with the letter "G" and ends with the letter "R". It's also a strategy RPG, which means we have zero interest in playing whatever the game ends up being. Because we're not well versed in the world of strategy RPG, we..
Chalk up another exclusive reveal for this weekend's VGAs
Activision's announced that its set to debut an exclusive look at Beenox's upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man at the awards ceremony. It will tie in to the upcoming Sony Pictures movie of the same name, and depict the events directly after the film's conclusion. Most excitingly, the game will feature a free-roaming Spidey in Manhattan. If it's..
Epic Games is a name more commonly associated with Microsoft
While the studio has released games on PlayStation 3, its Gears Of War series remains the developer's bread and butter. But the US based outfit has promised that its next IP will be "radically different" from the hurl-inducing machoness of its previous endeavours, and an all together "departure" for the studio..
'Tis the season to announce games apparently
As if Sony's upcoming The Last Of Us and Epic Games' brand new "experience" wasn't enough, THQ's confirmed its got a "very exciting" announcement in the pipeline. THQ core games boss Danny Bilson told AusGamers: We actually have a game we havent announced yet and I cant announce tonight but we will be around December ..
Remember when Square Enix signed up the Unreal Engine to develop a smattering of high-profile projects using the graphics technology? Famitsu's got the first scoop on what the Japanese publisher's cooking
In its latest issue, the Japanese gaming encyclopedia notes that the publisher is preparing a "massive, original action RPG" with Dragon Quest IX producer Ryutaro Ichimura at the helm..
Remember Dizzy? The egg-shaped platforming mascot of yesteryear? It looks like Codemasters is teasing a comeback
Rumours started circling when Codies PR head Rich Eddy revealed that "Eggmergence Day" is coming. A teaser website named EggcitingNews.com has since been discovered asking "Guess Who's Back?". It accompanies a cryptic...
As promised, Game Informer magazine has released the first teaser image of Bioware's next big project
The screenshot of the game — which is due to be fully revealed at next month's Spike TV VGA awards — shows a collision in a dusty, desert like setting. It's certainly a world away from Dragon Age and Mass Effect, but without more details is ultimately meaningless.
It's always exciting when Sony teases the words "surprise announcement"
But it nearly always leads to a bunch of wild and unattainable expectations. So let's keep our hype gauge in check, then. Jump Festa, a Japanese games festival, is set to take place in Tokyo later this year. Awkwardly the event will coincide with the launch of PlayStation Vita, with the exposition taking place on December 17th..
Your guess is as good as ours
A mysterious new PlayStation 3 teaser video has launched on the platform holder's YouTube channel promising to show us what's "beyond the doors" on October 5th. The footage shows a group of war veterans enter a pub or hotel. There appears to be Killzone-themed weapons on a rack against the wall, and a LittleBigPlanet points bubble on the desk. Some are..
Yakuza series creator Toshihiro Nagoshi has revealed that he's making a big announcement tomorrow at a press conference in Tokyo
The announcement will be streamed via Japan's Nico Nico video service. And that's really all we know. Nagoshi is currently working on Binary Domain for PlayStation 3. A new Yakuza title would send us crazy like a bag of nuts. Cross your fingers.
Let's play a little game: the Tokyo Game Show is coming
Atlus is teasing a Persona announcement. Said Persona announcement adopts the style of Persona 4. Atlus previously released all three of its Persona titles on PSP. We'll leave you to do the maths. We suppose the big discussion here is not what Atlus is about to announce — Persona 4 Portable seems obvious, right? — but which platform it..
GameTrailers TV host, Geoff Keighley, has taken to Twitter to hype up a number of exclusive trailers set to air on the show's pre-E3 special
Amongst the confirmed reveals is first footage of Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception's co-op, Soul Calibur V, and the aforementioned Tomb Raider CG trailer. GTTV's promising around 10 exclusive reveals for the show. We suspect Uncharted NGP will be one of them. It..
Rockstar's confirmed that details of L
A. Noire's</a> DLC plans will be revealed next week. The company announced the, errr, announcement in a Tweet overnight. There are already two additional L.A. Noire cases made available through various retail chains: The Naked City and A Slip Of A Tongue. Details on a third DLC pack, Nichlson...
Natsume's bringing lots of titles to E3, but one of those games is yet to be announced
According to Siliconera, the "highly anticipated Wii and PlayStation 3" title might be a localisation of Rune Factory Oceans. We, err, we don't really know much about Rune Factory Oceans, but the commenters on Siliconera are literally flipping out with excitement. Good news?
When we started this website, we made an internal pledge to cut out the metaphors that's so prevalent in games media
Sometimes we fail. We're failing right now actually, while we discuss aims and objectives that have nothing to do with this stor--... Ok. IO Interactive has Tweeted that "next week will be very good" and that we should "get ready for the incoming shrapnel."..
There are better ways to tease the announcement of your product, but for Tecmo's Ninja Gaiden series, stabbing viewers in the face seems like an apt solution
The short Ninja Gaiden 3 teaser trailer, released to kick-off this week's GDC event, shows protagonist Ryu Hayabusa drenched in the blood of his victim — which judging by the first-person perspective of the trailer appears to be us. Or you..
After whipping the Internet into a frenzy with last week's Dead Island trailer, small-time publisher, Deep Silver, is linining up another announcement today
The publisher's head of US PR wrote on Twitter, Tomorrows a holiday, but Ill be working because Im announcing ANOTHER game tomorrow! Oy! A tenner says it's not as good as the Dead Island reveal. [Ta TSA]
Capcom's Jun Takeuchi has revealed to Famitsu that the publisher will announce blockbuster titles in time for Summer
Takeuchi added that both games would be a surprise, and that they would launch in 2011. Speculation is pointing at Resident Evil 6 (yes please!), but Takeuchi mentioned that the games would be original. Original games are lovely and all but... Resident Evil 6.
