GamesCom 2010: Street Fighter X Tekken Brings Its Deadly Line Of Cross-Over Fighting To Europe

Tekken producer, Katsuhiro Harada, has dropped a bomb regarding Street Fighter X Tekken -- namely that the game will get debuted at GamesCom

After the official announcement at Comic-Con, Capcom's Yoshinori Ono informed us that it would be the last we'd hear about the game until mid-next year. But apparently, he was lying through his teeth. Sort of. Invites have been going out for the European..

British Demon's Souls Practically Sold Out Nationwide

The Black Phantom Edition of Demon's Souls is practically sold out everywhere in the UK

That's according to publishers Namco Bandai Partners, who are only aware of a few "dribs and drabs". "I can't give you a number, but what I mean by an 'amazing success' is that all the stock we built of the Black Phantom Edition has sold out (apart from dribs and drabs)," Lee Kirton,..

Ninja Theory: Story Is More Important Than Gameplay

We love a good video game story

Story-driven single-player titles are our favourites. But as we proved this afternoon with our Getaway feature, sometimes poor gameplay can kill a good story dead. But Ninja Theory's top-man, Tameem Antoniades, disagrees. To a degree, anyway. He didn't always feel the same way, however. In an interview with Videogamer.com, Tameem reminisces developing a party game..

Comic-Con 2010: Screenshots Like This Get Our Pulses Racing

As an onlooking Servbot watches Tekken's Kazuya kick the crap out of Street Fighter's Ryu, we can't help but feel that the upcoming  Street Fighter X Tekken cross-over heading to the PlayStation 3 is probably the best announcement since sliced bread

Sadly, the producer of Capcom's game, Yoshinori Ono, reckons the project is still some time off - citing a 2012 release date is on the cards. Ono said..

Majin And The Forsaken Kingdom Does Its Best ICO Impression This November

Namco Bandai's slapped a November release date on their upcoming ICO-esque title: Majin And The Forsaken Kingdom

The game, which is based around the lovable stone giant Majin (we bet he dies at the end!), will hit North America on November 30th, and is due in Europe soon after. It looks cute, if not a little derivative. Still, it might tide you over until The Last Guardian. And you can't really put..

Best Rumour In The World Ever: Capcom vs. Namco AND Namco vs. Capcom In Development, To Be Unveiled This Weekend

As Alf Stewart would say: stone the flamin' crows

GameInformer's dropped a rumour of megaton intensity, claiming that Capcom and Namco are joining forces for two new games. No, that's not a misprint in our headline. Apparently both Capcom vs. Namco and Namco vs. Capcom are set to be announced this weekend. Whether they'll both come on the same disc — we can only speculate for now. In case you..

Push Square's Most Anticipated PlayStation Games Of Holiday 2010: Enslaved

We're confident that Enslaved is destined to be one of this years great unsung heroes

Who knows, there's time for the game to get its plaudits yet — but based on pre-release anticipation, we're not convinced. Namco-Bandai want the game to be their equivalent of Uncharted 2, loft anticipations for a new IP indeed. But with Ninja Theory at the helm, anything can happen. Enslaved's a..

Push Square's Most Anticipated PlayStation Games Of Holiday 2010: Time Crisis: Razing Storm

It's a rails-shooter on a motion control platform - how utterly predictable

But, there was a time when most people would go out of their way to get to an arcade with the latest Time Crisis game, and the franchise still holds a warm place in our hearts. So when you tell us you're bringing Time Crisis: Razing Storm, aswell as Time Crisis 4 and Deadstorm Pirates to the PlayStation 3, we can't help but..

Enslaved Drops In European Retailers On October 8th, USA Get It On The 5th

Ninja Theory's Enslaved is definitely one of those games that's been growing on us

Growing on us like hairs, or some other better metaphor you might choose to come up with. [Whatever - Ed]. Point is: it looks good. And it's coming out here in Europe on October 8th. Folks in the USA will get it October 5th. That's the same week, just a few days earlier. Do you people remember when Europe had to wait..

Enslaved's Confirmed For An October 8th Launch

Enslaved's come out of no-where

Openly, we had no interest in Ninja Theory's adventure title. But a couple of trailers later, we're sold. All we needed was a release date to allow us to plan our time accordingly. Thanks to Eurogamer, we've now got that. Enslaved's hitting UK store shelves on October 8th. No official word on a US launch yet, but we're going to assume it'll be a "same week"..

Time Crisis: Razing Storm Announced, Exclusive To PlayStation 3, Includes Time Crisis 4

We're a sucker for Time Crisis

We just can't help it. We even bought the dodgy iPhone version — a touch screen version; we know, it's mad, without a gun it's not even Time Crisis. But it had Time Crisis written on it, so we bought it. Therefore, one particularly title hidden among Sony's PlayStation Move montage caused a minor squeel to utter from between our pursed lips: Time Crisis: Razing..

E3 2010: Latest Splatterhouse Trailer Is Pretty Sweet

Latest Splatterhouse Trailer Is Pretty Sweet

We weren't too enamored with the last Splatterhouse trailer we saw, but this E3 2010 trailer is pretty amazing

The combat appears to share some resemblance to Batman: Arkham Asylum — certainly in terms of animation. We don't know if it feels that way, but it wouldn't be a bad place to start. Also, looks like the game's got some 2D segments. Cool.

Enslaved Trailer Reveals October Release Window

Namco Bandai's whacked an October 2010 release date at the end of the E3 trailer for Enslaved: Odyssey To The West

That means folks that the game's just a few months away. Which is pretty excellent news all around because we're starting to get rather excited about this. For us - it's kind of come out of no where. The last couple of trailers have really piqued our excitement. So October it is then..

Tekken 7 Announced, We Seem Like The Only Ones Excited

We love Tekken

Granted, the series has felt a little flat in recent iterations (particularly the hit-and-miss Tekken 6), but we still believe it's a solid fighting franchise, and due a return to its former glory. So it's with some excitement that we read a recent Eurogamer Portugal report, which declares that Tekken 7 is a real product currently in development. To be honest, we wouldn't mind seeing..
