Chop Up Radishes in Yakuza Ishin's Intriguing PS Vita App

A cut above

As far as companion applications go, Yakuza Ishin’s extravagant PlayStation Vita extra may just be the most impressive yet. We outlined late last month that the add-on will allow you to take Ryoma Sakamoto’s historical experience out with you, but this brand new footage shows just how much you’ll be able to do on the handheld...

We'd Trade a Phoenix Mirror for This Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed Content

Changed our mind

Forget about the unresolved drama regarding Shenmue’s slick looking glasses, series antagonist Lan Di has cooked up an even more sinister plot involving Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. While the PlayStation 3 and Vita versions released over a year ago now, SEGA has just published the iOS and Android ports – and they...

Japanese PS4 Launch Title Yakuza Ishin Draws Its Sword

Slice and dice

There’s more cheesy rock music in this brand new trailer for Japanese PlayStation 4 launch title Yakuza Ishin than you could shake a samurai sword at. The lengthy cinematic clip – which splices together copious cut-scenes from the full game – shows various series favourites in their alternate history roles. That isn’t seasoned...

Let's get sweaty

Sony is eager to bring SEGA’s seminal Dreamcast exclusive Shenmue to the PlayStation platforms.

Wait, So SEGA Now Owns Persona Developer Atlus?

Yes, it does

SEGA has tossed a big pile of cash at the feet of troubled holding group Index Corporation, and purchased Persona developer Atlus in the process.

Star buy

Assuming that you already have an addiction to Sports Interactive’s soccer strategy game on the PC, then you may as well kiss goodbye to your social life, because Football Manager Classic 2014 is making a bid for your spare time on the PlayStation Vita.

SEGA May Reveal a New Yakuza Title Later This Month

You'll probably never get to play it, though

Yes, we’re still bitter. We’d gotten used to playing a new Yakuza title every year, but SEGA still hasn’t said anything about a localised version of Yakuza 5. The sequel – which deployed in Japan last year – sounded absolutely amazing, but we don’t have time to study a foreign language in...

Use your illusion

Disney has been investing a significant amount of effort in recent years to put the quality back into its video game franchises and reach out to more adult gamers. With the Epic Mickey series adopting a somewhat darker tone, and the forthcoming classic remake of DuckTales: Remastered, it’s obvious that the media giant has been...

Sony Almost Joined Forces with SEGA for the PlayStation

Alternate history

It’s a well-known fact that the PlayStation started life as an add-on for the Super NES. Sony and Nintendo didn’t see eye-to-eye, though, and the latter stabbed its would-be ally in the back by announcing a partnership with Philips. However, before opting to go it alone, the manufacturer actually tried to strike a deal with...
