DanceDanceRevolution Gets New Moves in Europe in March

PS3 title on the way

DanceDanceRevolution has been out in North America for a while now, but European fans of the dancing series were clueless as to when or if the game would make its way to the continent. Until now, that is, with Konami renaming the game DanceDanceRevolution New Moves and bringing it over in March 2011. Coming to the continent with...

Metal Gear Solid: Rising Slices Itself Into 2012

Metal Gear Solid: Rising was originally due next year

Unfortunately, that's no longer the case. Kotaku reports that the game's been pushed back into 2012.

The hook is the game's "precision..

Is Metal Gear Solid 4 Finally About To Get Trophies?

Metal Gear Solid 4 pre-dated trophies

Given its status as one of the best games in the PlayStation 3's library, many fans have been clamouring for a trophy update ever since Sony announced the rewards system. Despite frequent reports to the contrary, Metal Gear Solid 4 has never received trophies. That could be about to change. PlayStation LifeStyle's snapped a photo of the Greatest Hits edition of..

Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow Is Getting All Patched Up

There's an issue in the PlayStation 3 version of Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow

Some users have reported a problem in which save data gets corrupted. The game asks you to hit the X button to "overwrite" and bam, just like that your save is gone. But Konami's on the problem. The publisher reassured fans that "a patch for the PS3 save issue affecting Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is..

First Impressions: Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow on PS3 Demo

Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow on PS3 Demo

It struck us pretty early on, that we're going to be way more engrossed in Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow's story than its gameplay

From a narrative perspective, the game's cinematics and voice-acting are top-notch. Even the dark, European gothic style is inviting. But the gameplay doesn't quite live up to the presentation's precedent. The demo opens with a medieval town eclipsed in a tropical storm..

Hideo Kojima Would Love To Bring A Game To Next Year's Tokyo Game Show

While Hideo Kojima had a game present at this year's Tokyo Game Show, it wasn't his game

Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow may well have been one of the best titles on display, but it's being developed by MercurySteam, and Kojima is only overseeing the development. That said, the Kojima Productions boss would like to announce something of his own at next year's show. The Metal Gear man Tweeeted: “I..

Don't Expect Motion-Controlled Castlevania on Move

Move cannot do whips or other objects

Move is a versatile piece of kit, with titles lined up that turn the plastic into everything from a beam katana to a lasso, but it seems it has its limitations. Sony recently held a press conference in Japan to explain the controller in more depth, detailing its ability to portray pens, torches, nets and...

Kojima "Wanted" To Develop 3D Metal Gear Solid 4 With Trophies, Doesn't Have The Time

What's the one thing you've always wanted in Metal Gear Solid 4? Trophies, right

Yeah, us too. 3D support would just be the icing on the cake, right? Totally. Well it nearly happened. In fact, agonisingly Kojima's revealed that he "wanted" to release a "Complete" version of the title. Sadly, he just doesn't have the time. We know. “I wanted to make a ‘Complete Version’ with..

Konami Bringing Travis Touchdown to PlayStation Move

Punk's not dead

The original No More Heroes on Nintendo Wii was a highly original but equally flawed game that never really found its audience on the machine. Suda51's homage to punk, trashy TV and laser katana-wielding assassins fell foul of some of the Wii's limitations, but the forthcoming PlayStation 3 version of the game will combine the...

SAW II: The Video Game Drops Just In Time For The Latest SAW Movie

They make a lot of SAW movies

We're told this year's movie is number seven in the series, but we reckon it's more in the region of 727. Either way, with a new SAW video game on the way it makes sense to tie things into the movie. Which is exactly what Konami are doing. They've announced that SAW II: Flesh & Blood will release on October 19th in the US. That's just a couple of weeks before the..
