Samurai Warriors 4's Second Japanese Trailer Marches New Characters into View

Hack and dash

With over 50 characters set to make up its stylish-looking roster, it's safe to say that Tecmo Koei's somewhat secondary hack and slash series is catching up on Dynasty Warriors' gigantic line up of personalities. Newcomer Kagekatsu Uesugi looks to be a particular highlight in this video, wielding two huge blades and showing off some...

This Toukiden: The Age of Demons Trailer Will Get You Sharpening Your Blade

Hell of a time

This Toukiden: The Age of Demons CG trailer managed to sneak by us when it was originally released last week, but it's so good that we had no choice but to summon its demonic presence back to the front page. Featuring a custom player character and his loyal monster-slaying allies, they work together to take down a monstrous oni. It...

You'll Be Able to Share Your Sinister Side with the World in Deception IV

Broadcast your brutality

The real appeal of gaming is that it offers unmatchable escapism, allowing you to perform feats that you may not otherwise get to experience in the real world. These may range from lifting the FA Cup in FIFA 14 to helming a pirate’s ship in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag – or, in the case of upcoming PlayStation 3 and...

Could PS2 Fright-Fest Project Zero Be Spooking the European PSN?

"I ain't 'fraid of no ghost"

Fan pleas to publishers for re-releases often fall on silent ears. For European admirers of the Project Zero franchise, however, there is a chance for their requests to finally be heard. Tecmo Koei asked its Twitter followers if they would like to see the series on the PlayStation Network earlier this week. The fact...

Vita Exclusive Toukiden: The Age of Demons Summons a Four Minute Animated Trailer

Get a slice of this

Sometimes there's no better way to begin a game than to barrage the player with a nicely animated movie – preferably one that's backed by some catchy Japanese rock. Unfortunately the latter isn't used here, but Tecmo Koei has seen fit to release a whole four minute animation for its upcoming oni-slaying adventure Toukiden:...

Dressed to impress

With the release of Atelier Escha & Logy for the PlayStation 3 just around the corner, we can't wait to get back into the lab, even if it isn't quite like Breaking Bad.

Two for Two as Dynasty Warriors Next Marches into February's EU PS Plus Update

Get ready to unite China again

Launch titles are often best left in the shadows as the younger, more attractive games hog the spotlight.

Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends Complete Edition Has a Silly Name

Oh, and it's releasing on the PS4 and Vita next year in Europe

Video games have historically had trouble in the naming department. Beyond: Two Souls and Stealth Inc: A Clone in the Dark are two particularly egregious examples from the past twelve months. But far and away the absolute worst name of recent memory has to go to Dynasty Warriors 8:...

Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z Covers Us in Zombie Blood

No braaains

The weird Ninja Gaiden spin-off that is Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z surprised us during a recent hands-on. For a series that's always been known for its gory disposition, it feels like proceedings may have gone a little bit overboard, with so much blood and mutilation that we found it difficult to discern what was even happening on screen...

Girls just wanna have fun

It’s been less than a year since we last went toe-to-toe with Team Ninja’s curious cleavage meets combat comeback Dead or Alive 5, and now – following a temporary detour on the PlayStation Vita – we’re strapping up our appendages and digging out our most inappropriate fighting gear again. As its name so...

Dynasty Warriors 8 (PlayStation 3)

Xiahou done

There comes a time when you begin to ask yourself why you’re still playing a series of games that has somehow spawned eight main iterations and countless spin-offs while retelling the same old story over and over again. What could possibly be keeping your interest in a franchise that has done almost nothing but stick to its guns for...
