TGS 2014: Yakuza Zero Trailer Looks Good on the Dance Floor

Yakuza Zero Trailer Looks Good on the Dance Floor

Looking for a fight, not necessarily romance

We weren’t entirely sure how we felt about SEGA pulling the prequel card with the latest entry in its Japanese gangster series, Yakuza Zero. However, after watching this brand new trailer, we’re totally sold on the concept. It shows protagonists Kazuma Kiryu and Majima Goro strutting around Kamurocho...

Yakuza Zero Looks to Turn Back Time on PS4 and PS3

Zero chance of a localisation, huh?

As promised, SEGA has announced that the next entry in its popular Japanese gangster series will be named Yakuza Zero: Chikai no Basho – or, Yakuza Zero: The Place of Oath.

You'll Be Able to Lust After a New Yakuza Game from 24th August

SEGA's sure to Shun us

SEGA may not be very good at anything else these days, but it sure knows how to pump out new Yakuza titles in Japan. Despite historical spin-off Yakuza Ishin launching less than six months ago, the publisher is now preparing for the announcement of a new franchise foray for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 – and you’ll...

Yu Suzuki: I'm Ready to Create Shenmue III Should the Right Circumstances Arise

Veteran raring to go

Much like protagonist Ryo Hazuki’s neverending quest for revengeance, SEGA legend Yu Suzuki will seemingly never give up on the fight for Shenmue III. Asked yet again about the overdue sequel during an event in beautiful Barcelona last week, the Super Hang-On designer declared that he’s ready to make the game whenever the...

There'll Soon Be a New Yakuza Game for You to Lust Over

Don't hold your breath for a Western release

SEGA’s soap opera-esque role playing series Yakuza had a good run in the West for a while, but now we’re quickly falling behind. Despite localisations being borderline demanded by brand fans, neither Yakuza 5 nor its PlayStation 4 successor Yakuza Ishin have released overseas yet. That means that you...

Mid-league manager

That there is a Silver Trophy in Football Manager Classic 2014 that rewards you for participating in 30 consecutive seasons – or a couple of hundred hours of play – will be no surprise to fans of the franchise, many of which will have been glued to their computers for the past decade or so. This is a series that’s universe...

Complacency Will Kill in Alien: Isolation on PS4

Familiarity breeds contempt

Aside from seemingly finally doing the movie series justice in videogame terms, Alien: Isolation is fast-shaping up to be one of the scariest games unleashed upon both this generation and last. Our very own Sammy Barker got to grips with The Creative Assembly's interpretation of Ridley Scott's interstellar dystopia last...

Staying Alive in Alien: Isolation, the Tensest Title on PS4 So Far

Ripley's believe it

That we’ve already sneaked through a short sample of upcoming PlayStation 4 survival horror Alien: Isolation says a lot about the game and its developer. Knowing that it could have easily been haunted by the spectre of Gearbox’s atrocious Aliens: Colonial Marines, The Creative Assembly has instead punctured any scepticism...

Spine-Tingling Survival Horror Alien: Isolation Will Scare You Silly on 7th October

Can you outlast that long?

Games based on the Aliens franchise have had a pretty bumpy history. While some have come close to matching the atmosphere of their source material, very few have truly done the series justice. Here at Push Square we've got our fingers firmly crossed that upcoming survival horror Alien: Isolation will do just that, and...
