Review: Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme VS-Force (PS Vita)

Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme VS-Force (PS Vita)

Full Bust

The PlayStation Vita has its first Gundam game here in the West, and unfortunately, it's not that great. A spin-off from Japan's super popular Gundam VS series, Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme VS-Force is essentially a watered-down edition of the arcade action property with a focus on single player content. Directly comparing this portable...

World of Final Fantasy May Be a Spin-Off, But It Definitely Shouldn't Be Ignored

Step aside, Noctis

The more that we see of World of Final Fantasy, the more we begin to think that this cutesy little role-playing release could be one of the property's best products in quite some time. With the game due out near the end of October, it's no surprise that it's currently being overshadowed by Final Fantasy XV, but we'd urge you to...

Toukiden 2's Opening Movie Will Get You in the Mood for Some Demon Slaying

The bigger they are

Koei Tecmo's revealed Toukiden 2's opening CG movie, and it's pretty much exactly what you'd expect. A non-specific main character teams up with the sequel's refreshed cast and they hack a giant Oni to bits in stylish fashion. Hey, at least the video's being true to the game. Still, it's worth a watch if you're looking to...

Are you Setsuna?

There's lots to like about this week's European PlayStation Store update, particularly if you're a fan of Japanese games. I Am Setsuna and The King of Fighters XIV demo are clearly the headliners, but there's other stuff like Gal*Gun: Double Peace worth watching out for as well. And failing all of that, there are at least a couple...

Berserk Will Be Unleased on PS4, Vita Later This Year in the West

No Guts no glory

Okay, this should be the last Berserk story for today, much to the relief of anti-anime editor Sammy Barker.

Japanese Sales Charts: PS4 Ain't Got New Games, But it Keeps Selling Anyway

The never-ending story

Well this is all a bit familiar, isn't it? Once again, the PlayStation 4 has topped the Japanese hardware charts with 22,717 units sold despite the fact that there's been bugger all releasing on the system. The PS4 "Welcome Price" version of last year's Tales of Zestiria was the only current-gen title to make it into the...

But still no release date

Fans have high hopes for Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization, but it feels like we've seen more than enough of it over the last few months.
