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...

Football Manager 2014 Substituting PSP for Vita

Soccer strategy simulation could be sprinting onto Sony's latest system

If you prefer your footie games to be riddled with statistics rather than bicycle kicks, you may already be doing a Mourinho over the rumours that Football Manager 2014 could be picking sides with the PlayStation Vita. Online retailer ShopTo.net listed the title for the...

Stepping into the Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse

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...

First Impressions: Dancing with Cat Ears in Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F

Dancing with Cat Ears in Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F

Big in Asia

Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F is a very unique rhythm-based game. Inspired by the dominant Japanese Vocaloid craze – a piece of software that allows users to create songs – Hatsune Miku is a virtual anime-style Japanese idol and digital singer, with a vocaloid sound sampled from the voice of Japanese voice actress Fujita Saki. At a...

Watch David Cage Talk Shenmue and Beyond: Two Souls with Yu Suzuki

When worlds collide

There’s no denying that Dreamcast classic Shenmue and Heavy Rain share similarities. While the two titles are set in completely different worlds, they both aspire to the same cinematic goals. As such, this interview conducted by Camouflaj developer Ryan Payton is particularly fascinating. In it, both SEGA legend Yu Suzuki and...

Yakuza Could Be Flirting with the PlayStation Vita in the Future

Dragon of Dojima

There are few nights where we don’t weep at the lack of Yakuza 5 in our lives. The hotly anticipated PlayStation 3 adventure launched in Japan last year, but still hasn’t received a western release. Despite this, the series is still massively popular in its native market – and in a recent interview with an Eastern...

Yakuza's Kazuma Kiryu Is Teeing Off in Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational

Gangster's paradise

Kazuma Kiryu’s proficiency with the martial arts may have made him a better fit for mascot mash-up PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale – but the Yakuza protagonist is no stranger to the golf course either. As such, we suppose it makes perfect sense for the former Tojo Clan chairman to join the roster of Hot Shots Golf: World...

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,...

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...

Actually, we'd rather play Yakuza 5

The game based on Japan’s creepy vocaloid teen idol thing Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F could be heading on a world tour. SEGA is currently polling fans on Facebook to see how much interest there is in the PlayStation 3 version of the title overseas. All you need to do to register your interest in the game is...
