  • News Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd's Custom PS3 Controller Is Enormous

    Make some room

    Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd, the sequel to SEGA’s strangely popular rhythm game, may be packed with dainty melodies and twee vocaloid voices – but there’s nothing elegant about its monstrous PlayStation 3 peripheral. The optional Hori manufactured extra – which rivals the first boss from Team ICO classic Shadow of the...

  • News Puyo Puyo Tetris May Just Be the Coolest Crossover Ever

    No, really

    Forget about Ubisoft’s promise of a next-gen Tetris for the PlayStation 4, as there’s only one puzzler that you’re going to want to splash out on this year. Puyo Puyo Tetris promises a chaotic fusion of gaming’s greatest block busting brands, leaving you combining colours and scoring lines in a vibrant experience more hyperactive...

  • News Desperate Shenmue Fans Beg Sony to Save Series on PS4

    Master Chen would admire your fortitude

    It’s becoming abundantly clear that if anyone is going to awaken Shenmue from its decade long slumber, it’s going to be Sony. Not only has the platform holder publicly acknowledged the fervent demand for the franchise in recent interviews, but PlayStation 4 architect Mark Cerny is actual

  • News This Is One PS4 Box That You Probably Won't Be Seeing on Western Store Shelves

    More's the pity

    With the PlayStation 4’s launch in Japan now fast approaching, publishers are beginning to reveal the cover art for their release day wares. One such box that slipped through our news net late last year is this one for Yakuza Ishin, which bucks the series’ Eastern trend by adopting a full colour image. Pretty neat, huh? Despite...

  • News There's Plenty of Sexy Side Content to Skewer in Yakuza Ishin

    A night on the town

    The Yakuza franchise has always boasted a large number of quirky, often crazy side activities to keep you entertained when you're not busy beating thugs into bloody pulps, and thankfully, the series' latest samurai spin-off Yakuza Ishin is just as laden with opportunities to turn that gritty frown upside down. According to the...

  • News Alien: Isolation Stalks PS4, PS3 Later This Year

    Believe it or not

    Are those the cogs of the press cycle being kicked back into gear, or are we being pursued by a great leathery Martian? We’re going to assume it’s the latter, as SEGA has decided to give the ol’ Ridley Scott thing another bash, confirming that Total War developer Creative Assembly is working on Alien: Isolation for the...

    A cut above

    As far as companion applications go, Yakuza Ishin’s extravagant PlayStation Vita extra may just be the most impressive yet.

  • News 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...

  • News There's Only One Way You're Going to Get Hatsune Miku in Your Bedroom

    Little deviants

    There’s no need for the X-Factor in Japan, as the region is so technologically advanced that it’s able to manufacture its chart toppers using computers. As such, you have little to no chance of bumping into Hatsune Miku at a swanky awards ceremony – but through the power of the PlayStation Vita, you will have others...

  • News You'll Be Able to Use Your Vita to Take PS4 Title Yakuza Ishin Everywhere

    Historical setting, future technology

    Companion applications are all the rage these days. Developers are employing smartphones and tablets to augment second screen experiences in many of their games, but SEGA is going one step further than the usual roster of maps and statistics in Yakuza Ishin. Instead, the upcoming PlayStation 4 adventure will...

  • News 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.

    Dragon of Dojima

    There are few nights where we don’t weep at the lack of Yakuza 5 in our lives.

    Guesses on the back of a postcard, please

    SEGA has launched a new Japanese teaser website for an impending PlayStation 3 and Vita project, but additional details are being kept under wraps. The page – which features some kind of dust effect – hints that all will be revealed on 28th March. Why do we have to wait so long? Unsurprisingly,...

  • News You Should Really Consider Signing This Yakuza 5 Petition

    We'll cry if you don't

    Petitions are almost always futile, but when they revolve around a franchise that’s dear to our heart, we suppose they’re at least worth a shot. A group of Yakuza 5 fans have started up an online campaign to get the latest entry in the gangster series localised. Over the past few years, publisher SEGA has stealthily...

    Beep, blip

    According to comments made up by an ex-Gearbox employee, the majority of Aliens: Colonial Marines was not built by the Borderlands developer.

  • News We Don't Know What to Make of This Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed Commercial

    Fruit pie

    Danica Patrick should not be in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed – but we suppose publisher SEGA may as well take advantage of her while she is. This commercial for the casual kart racer shows the Go Daddy girl racing against a couple of full grown adults dressed as Sonic the Hedgehog and AiAi from Super Monkey Ball. It’s the...

    Like a dragon

    Yakuza 5 landed a devastating blow on all of the other new releases in Japan this week.

    Quick, cower behind your computer monitors, because the atrocious Sonic the Fighters is heading overseas.

  • News These Kids Are Really Stoked About Sonic & All-Stars Racing

    Passing breeze

    SEGA didn’t really need to splash out on child actors to promote Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. All that the publisher needed to show was Gilius Thunderhead power-sliding around OutRun Bay. Still, at least the kids look like they’re having fun – even if they are sitting in front of an industrial fan while someone tips...

  • News You Won't Feel Shortchanged By This Yakuza 5 Story Trailer

    How long have you got?

    Most story trailers run for a couple of minutes at most – but we suppose that the Yakuza series has always been eager to buck conventions.
