You Better Hope SEGA Publishes Persona 5 in Europe, 'Cause NIS America Won't Be

Uh oh

Persona 5 is probably getting a Japanese release date next month, but the painful wait for any kind of confirmation of a European launch looks set to continue.

Reliving a Memorable War in Valkyria Chronicles Remastered on PS4

Well in, Welkin

Valkyria Chronicles Remastered is a fine example of a game that'll always look bloody lovely because of its art style. When the original Valkyria Chronicles launched on the PlayStation 3 all the way back in 2008, it was a stunner, sporting wistful, superbly crafted watercolour-esque visuals. From start to finish the title was a joy...

Getting a physical release, too

A collective sigh of relief was let out around the Push Square office this afternoon as SEGA revealed that Yakuza 0 will be coming to Europe after all.

Serious business

Console wars have a bad name. We're not condoning the craziness that occurs on social media and message boards from time to time, but there's a competitive edge to any industry that can be entertaining when viewed from the inside – and video games are no different. Console Wars, a fly-on-the-wall insight into the skirmish for...

We're Not Sure What to Think of Valkyria: Azure Revolution on PS4

It's different, we suppose

Valkyria Chronicles must have done something right, because it got editor Sammy Barker to actually play a strategy game. The PlayStation 3 title is adored by many, but clearly, SEGA reckons that the series needs shaken up, and so here we are with the playable demo of Valkyria: Azure Revolution. Japanese players nabbed...

Feeling the heat

Regular readers will know that we're gigantic fans of the Yakuza franchise here at Push Square Towers, but even we have to admit that the series has aged poorly. The PlayStation 3 entries, while vibrant, were essentially up-ressed PlayStation 2 games, and the current crop of PlayStation 4 titles all run on the same engine, too...

Review: Yakuza 5 (PS3)

Yakuza 5 (PS3)

Gangster's paradise

Should the long awaited Yakuza 5 prove to be the PlayStation 3's swan song, there couldn't be a more fitting release. Like the last-gen system itself, the latest instalment in SEGA's seedy soap opera is occasionally convoluted and slow to get started, but it's deeply entertaining all the same. It may have taken series protagonist...
