Better late than never though, as the platform holder's just confirmed to MCV that the Eat Sleep Play developed racer will..

We're going to be honest, we don't know a whole lot about Konami's NeverDead
We know it's being developed by British-based studio Rebellion. And we know that the game's protagonist is immortal, able to lose limbs during combat and then pick them up at a later date. But that's about the extent of our knowledge. Perhaps that's all Konami wants us to know because, to be honest, that does sound pretty..
Capcom's high-budget action RPG Dragon's Dogma has a date
But we suspect those of you in Europe will wish it didn't.

Parasite Eve is back
(Sort of.) Square Enix has readily slapped a March 29th release date on Square Enix's PE spin-off, The 3rd Birthday. Bizarrely, the game will only release on UMD, with "no plans" for a digital version. We don't get it. What's the disadvantage of releasing the game on UMD and the PlayStation Store? Weird.
