TGS 11: God Eater 2 Confirmed... For PlayStation Portable

With that gaping Monster Hunter shaped hole still stinging in the PlayStation Vita's line-up, God Eater 2's announcement isn't quite the consolation we'd all hoped for

The title's been confirmed for PlayStation Portable, and is set to take place three years after the events in the original game. There'll be new weapons, new creatures and more. But it's not on Vita. Why isn't it on Vita?

Namco Bandai's released the first screenshot of Ridge Racer on PlayStation Vita

The game will be released in time for the system's launch, maintaining an age-old PlayStation tradition. The game promises a new visual style in addition to online multiplayer. The screenshot looks a bit rough, but we're looking forward to seeing the game in motion. [Thanks Andriasang]

As previously anticipated, Namco Bandai has confirmed Tales Of Innocence R for the PlayStation Vita

Expect Tales News on Vita "Very Soon"

Maybe "next week" soon

Namco Bandai's Tales series of RPGs is beloved around the world, with outings including Tales of Symphonia on GameCube and follow-up Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World on Wii, but PlayStation gamers have had plenty to enjoy too. There may be more titles heading to Sony platforms too, as series producer Makoto Yoshizumi...

Report: Namco X Tecmo Announcement Is A One Piece Dynasty Warriors Game

You may recall Namco Bandai and Tecmo putting up an announcement countdown website earlier in the week

The website caused huge speculation about what the duo were about to announce, but Andriasang claims to have uncovered the secret. The website has scans confirming a PS3-exclusive Dynasty Warrior game based on the One Piece manga series. The game's officially called One Piece Kaizoku Musou. No..

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 To Get Arcade Launch Next Month In Japan

Arguably the most anticipated Tekken game in some time, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, will finally get its Japanese arcade debut on September 14th

This is good news because it means publisher Namco Bandai will finally be able to turn its attention to the promised PlayStation 3 port which is due out next year. And we all know, more Tekken can only be a good thing. Right?

Namco Bandai Teases Crossover Announcement With Tecmo Koei

We haven't posted a countdown teaser for a while

More's the pity. Thankfully, Namco Bandai and Tecmo Koei aren't giving up hope on the much overused video game announcement tool, teasing a joint venture that's due to be announced seven days from the time of writing (so, roughly September 5th). What could it be? We'll eat our head if its Tekken X Dead Or Alive.

Shinobido 2 Confirmed as Vita Launch Title

Whenever that is

Namco Bandai has announced Shinobido 2: Tales of the Ninja will accompany the PlayStation Vita when it launches in the West next year. It's the first third-party game to be officially announced as a launch title, and will join Uncharted: Golden Abyss, LittleBigPlanet, ModNation Racers and WipEout 2048 as games available from the...

Whisper It: Ridge Racer Unbounded Looks Kinda Cool

Don't tell long-term fans of the series, but we think Ridge Racer Unbounded looks kinda cool

As we've already established, it does not look like a Ridge Racer game in the slightest, but as a Burnout-hybrid, we reckon developer BugBear's got things nailed. The gameplay crux is thus: you fill your power meter by drifting. This can then be used to open up new pathways and shortcuts, similarly to in..

GamesCom 2011: Latest Dark Souls Trailer Reveals Huge Bosses

We'd be excited for Dark Souls if we knew we had the patience to play it

Seriously, From Software's GamesCom trailer is super-exciting, showcasing enormous monsters and a visceral brutality that's unmatched by any other game (outside of maybe God Of War). But then we think back to our time with Demon's Souls and we totally get put off. Indeed, this is one October release that we think we'll..

GamesCom 2011: Soul Calibur V Sizzles In New Gameplay Reel

CGI trailers? Pssht, who needs those? Namco Bandai's released a fresh trailer for Soul Calibur V, and it's packed with fresh gameplay footage to feast your eyes on

It's also got plenty of melodramatic commentary — a staple for the Soul Calibur series we suppose. "Those who live by the sword, must die by the sword," etc. You get the idea.

Namco Showcases Ridge Racer: Unbounded's 'Create' Mode

Given how hard Sony's pushed user-generated content over the past three years, it's surprising so few other publishers have followed their lead

When thinking about non-Sony games that have done user-generated content well, it's tough to come up with anything. But Namco and BugBear's upcoming Ridge Racer rethink, Unbounded, at least adopts some of the user-generated philosophy. A new create mode..

And Here's Your Tekken Hybrid Boxart...

.. Albeit in shoddy low resolution, but you totally get the idea right? Tekken Hybrid is a PlayStation 3 exclusive game plus movie bundle, that features Tekken Tag Tournament HD, CG movie Tekken: Blood Vengeance and a demo for the upcoming Tekken Tag Tournament 2. It does that blue/red gradient thing that virtually every other boxart does these days. What's with that?</em>

Katsuhiro Harada Talks Stereoscopic 3D, Tekken Hybrid, Fireballs & PlayStation Vita

The PlayStation Blog's uploaded a jumbo interview with Tekken gaffer Katsuhiro Harada regarding many phases of Tekken's upcoming line-up

The focus of the conversation was on Tekken Hybrid — a PlayStation 3 exclusive package due this holiday with an HD version of Tekken Tag Tournament and CG movie Tekken: Blood Vengeance. But what's Namco done to upgrade Tekken Tag Tournament for PS3? "We..

News: Soul Calibur V Definitely Looks Like More Soul Calibur

Soul Calibur V Definitely Looks Like More Soul Calibur

Namco revealed a new Soul Calibur V trailer at last week's Comic-Con

The main take-away: there's more Soul Calibur on the horizon. The action looks as fast and fluid as you'd hope from a mainline Soul Calibur game, with the outfits equally revealing. Ignore the melodrama elsewhere in this trailer. We've never been ones to follow Soul Calibur's tale of "legends" and "history". We..
