Slime time

Square Enix has revealed that it's hosting a presentation on the 28th July regarding the Dragon Quest series - that's next Tuesday, by the way. The news comes via Jump Magazine, which goes on to mention Dragon Quest Heroes II, and unveils the action role-playing game's subtitle: Twin Kings and the Prophecy's End. Sounds fancy. However,...

Here's Your First Look at the Minecraft-Like Dragon Quest Builders on PS4

Golems beware

Dragon Quest Builders was announced earlier this month, but we haven't had a chance to look at the game in action - until now. As you can probably tell, the title's taken inspiration from the evergreen Minecraft, as you smash, build, and craft your way through large, open worlds. These three new screenshots from publisher Square...

PS4 Exclusive Dragon Quest Heroes Isn't Any Ordinary Warriors Game

Musou what?

Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree's Woe and the Blight Below, a game with arguably the silliest name in the history of the medium, will apparently be sticking very close to its Dragon Hero roots. Indeed, recent interviews with some of the title's higher ups have revealed that it will be more reminiscent of an ARPG than a traditional...

DONTNOD Applying Final Touches to Life Is Strange: Episode 4

Arcadia wait

It's been quite some time since the previous episode of Life Is Strange released – and what a cruel cliff-hanger developer DONTNOD left us on – so it's probably time we got an update on the Parisian outfit's progress with Episode 4. Fortunately, it's confirmed that while the new instalment won't be arriving this week as expected,...

Hitman PS4 Gameplay Footage Sneaks Online

Served up in secret

While there's been much confusion regarding Hitman's distribution method, we've been more bemused by publisher Square Enix's decision to conceal a release that's due out in less than six months. This leaked gameplay footage is almost certain to get whacked by the organisation in no time at all, then – but at least it gives us...

Just Cause 3's Collector's Edition Includes a Grappling Hook

No, it doesn't actually work

Introducing a whole new kind of pointless tat is Just Cause 3's recently announced collector's edition, which comes with a replica grappling hook. The device has played a big part in the franchise, with hero Rico Rodriguez using it to cause all kinds of chaos, whether it's hanging from the underside of a jet to closing...

Hitman on PS4 Won't Release as a Full Game, and It'll Be Digital Only at First

Let's try to make sense out of this

You may have seen the new Hitman at E3 2015. You may even have gotten hyped for it. But that hype is slowly draining away for some, as Square Enix has slowly but surely explained how the game won't be releasing in full on the 8th December. Posting a question and answer segment on the title's official website,...

This Probably Isn't The Dragon Quest Announcement You Wanted

Square Enix wants in on the Minecraft crowd

Last week, Square Enix was teasing a Dragon Quest announcement in Japan. Many speculated that the publisher was going to reveal the series' next main instalment, while others thought that it could have something to do with the franchise's well known spin-offs. As it turns out, both guesses were wrong, as...

Dragon Quest XI Will Probably Be for PS4

Back where it belongs?

We get the slightest suspicion that Square Enix and Sony are working together to save the home console in Japan. Obviously this is speculation on our part, but announcements like Final Fantasy VII Remake and Nier New Project – both for the PlayStation 4 – seem focused on rescuing a sector of the industry that's heading...

Here's 7 Hours of People Reacting to the Final Fantasy VII Remake Announcement

A night to remember

We're not going to lie - we still get goosebumps when we watch that Final Fantasy VII Remake trailer. Arguably the biggest show stopper in a press conference that was already packed with show stoppers, the announcement that the PSone classic was getting a new-gen remake was enough to send fans completely crazy, and with good...
