To No One's Surprise, Europe Has to Wait a Bit Longer for Persona 4 Dancing All Night

Thankfully it's still this year

And so Atlus continues its reign of brutal disappointment. Persona 4 Dancing All Night finally has a confirmed European release date, and it's no surprise that it's hitting these shores over a month after its North American launch. To be fair, though, we've seen far worse over the years, but it'll still be a bit of...

Abyss Odyssey: Extended Dream Edition (PS4)

Life’s abyss and then you die

As far as unrepresented settings in video games go, 19th Century Chile is right up near the top, so it's nice to see such an unexpected backdrop used in Abyss Odyssey: Extended Dream Edition. In this unconventional genre mash-up on PlayStation 4, you'll find a roguelike role-playing game that not only has a unique...

Atlus Insists That Persona 5 Is Coming To North America This Year, While Europe Gets It Later

We need some evidence

We want to believe, but we're finding it difficult. It's now August, and barring a trailer and an official English website, we don't really have any evidence that Persona 5 is actually releasing this year in North America - or even Japan, for that matter. But in an interview with God is a Geek, the always enthusiastic Jo

Teasers of announcements of annoucements

You've got to love this industry for its ability to tease teasers like no other. Last week, Atlus and Vanillaware opened up a website that teased an announcement for today, and sure enough, the two companies have revealed that they're working on a new project. The bad news is that all you're getting right...

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...

Yu and Rise Step It Up In Persona 4 Dancing All Night's English Trailers

Dance for the truth

Persona 4 Dancing All Night is coming West later this year, and to be totally honest, we can't wait to give it a go. Sure, the idea of dancing to save your high school buddies is just a few steps away from being overly ridiculous, but when the game looks as fun as this, it's hard to care. With the title's launch creeping ever...

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...

Velvet bloom

Margaret may be known as the mysterious, golden-eyed woman who sits in an ethereal limo and fuses personas for you on a regular basis, but hey, she likes to let her hair down as much as anyone else. As evidenced by Persona 4 Dancing All Night's newest trailer, Margaret's actually quite the elegant dancer. Apparently, she's an...

No betrayal here

If you'll recall, we wrote about PlayStation 3 and Vita title Lost Dimension a little while back, and exclaimed that it seemed to have the makings of an interesting role-playing game. Atlus' creation sees you team up with a bunch of stylish teens, and as the plot progresses, you'll need to decide who's an enemy, and who isn't...

PlayStation Exclusive Persona 5's Nabbed a Release Window, and It's Looking Promising

Pray for Europe

It's arguably not a point that's being made as much as it should be, but Persona 5 is a big deal for PlayStation. The Japanese role-playing game series is on the very cusp of becoming a smash hit, with Persona 4 being a critical and commercial success not just in Japan, but over here in the West, too. If you still haven't seen...
